Authentic 70’s Fancy Dress

For the organisers or attendees of fancy dress parties which center around a specific theme, finding authentic-looking costumes to wear which are likely to differ from the costumes chosen by other guests may prove to be a challenge.

Whilst a 1970’s fancy dress theme does afford party guests with a main idea to base their costume choice around, it may also restrict the options available to them, and your guests or fellow attendees could all arrive dressed in traditional Disco attire consisting of flared trousers and rightly patterned shirts – that is unless they can find inspiration elsewhere.

If you would like your 70s-themed party or your costume to look more innovative or unique, you could turn to the internet to find websites to recommend to your guests, or even use yourself to provide further inspiration for your costume.

Online retailer Fancy Dress Ball sell fancy dress costumes reminiscent of many different decades defined by the fashions worn at the time, and their collection of 70’s fancy dress costumes consists of a wide range of options including traditional and alternative costume ideas.

Recognisable Pimp, Bling-style and Disco-inspired costumes can be purchased from the website, as well as a range of more unique choices such as Elvis, rock band Kiss and even television show ‘Wombles’.

More accurate and less stereotypical alternatives to traditional 70’s wear can also be purchased, including options such as flattering Go-Go dresses, jumpsuits and Mod outfits, so your guests’ costumes can be as fashionable as they are representative of the 1970s.

So, if you are considering becoming a host to a 70’s fancydress party, or have been invited to one and are unsure of where to turn for an innovative, stylish and outlandish outfit to wear, consulting the vast range available from websites such as Fancy Dress Ball online may provide you with more options than highstreet retailers.

Flu and Swine flu vaccinations with samedaydoctor

samedaydoctor walk-in private clinics offer a wide range of specialist services, with highly qualified private GPs on staff. Amongst their range of services are travel vaccines, including flu and swine flu vaccinations. With influenza being a potential problem for everyone, particularly pregnant women,people aged 65 years and over and children under five, everyone over the age of six months is advised to visit their GP to receive the flu vaccination.

However, getting an appointment with a local GP can be difficult, which may be enough to put some people off of trying to seek treatment. They may also not consider themselves to be at risk, as the general perception seems to be that it is only a real danger for the elderly. This is incorrect, as the influenza virus is unpredictable, and affects sufferers in different ways. Elderly people do have a high risk of more severe effects, due to weaker immune systems, which make them more susceptible to the more dangerous problems caused by the flu, such as bacterial pneumonia and dehydration. However, while many younger people may suffer from high fever, headaches, muscle aches and a cough, for around a week on average, it can also prove lethal to people in general good health.

With samedaydoctor’s private GPs, the flu vaccination can be administered quickly and efficiently, as can the swine flu (or H1N1) vaccination. Though swine flu does not pose as big a risk as it did twelve months ago, it is still a danger, and the vaccination should be considered by those people staying within the UK and travelling abroad. At samedaydoctor, the team of private GPs will offer advice and answer any queries a patient may have on both the flu and swine flu vaccinations.

Educational Toys for Children

For infants and toddlers who do not attend a nursery or school yet, toys can be a great source for giving them the stimulation they are yet to receive from meeting new people, or playing and sharing with other children.

Because playing with kids’ toys can be such a fundamental part of your child’s day, you may find that getting creative and putting more thought into the toys you choose for them could make a considerable difference to their intellectual development as they grow older.

Educational toys are useful for parents wishing to foster their child’s learning and put playtime to better use. Simply buying puzzles and jigsaws for children can help to improve their problem-solving skills and encourage them to use their logic during playtime, as opposed to toys which are equally enjoyable yet carry no real educational benefit.

If you take advantage of the fact that your child, grandchild or even your friend’s child is always playing with their toys, you could opt to purchase more educational children’s toys for their next birthday – but without compromising on how enjoyable playing with toys can be for younger children.

Educational toys are available in a variety of formats to suit the different genders, ages and personal preferences of children, and include wooden number puzzles and letter games featuring their favourite cartoon characters, or dominoes sets,large-print, thick-paged books or maybe even a classic abacus – all depending on the child’s current stage of development or the types of toys they prefer.

There are a wealth of websites on the internet, and even toy shops on the high street specialising in selling more educational alternatives to traditional children’s toys, but it is imperative that you select one offering durability and a wide selection of products to ensure that you can buy exactly what you are looking for.

The Hydes Toys website offers a varied collection of toys for educational purposes, but which don’t compromise on the fun that playtime is all about for your children. They carefully source the products they sell to provide only the most hard-wearing and enjoyable products currently on the
