Luvabella would love to hear how your baby, toddler or pre schooler surprised you with their love for you! We all know this age can be tricky with sleepless nights, the "terrible twos", but that small people are also amazing at surprising you with a display of pure love. How does your LO surprise you with love - is it when you’re feeling low and they know just what to say, when they crack the biggest smile just for you, when they go to nursery and plant a big kiss on your cheek to say goodbye or when a special picture is created which you have to display on the fridge?

The team at Luvabella say “Discover so many real baby surprises with Luvabella! From the moment she opens her eyes and giggles, Luvabella will amaze you with her true-to-life facial expressions and personality! She moves, talks and plays just like a real baby. Through touch and play she affectionately responds to your love. Cover her eyes for a game of peek-a-boo, tickle her tummy and toes to make her giggle, or place a hand on her chest to gently listen to her heartbeat. You can even hold her feet to hear her say “mumma” and begin to babble! The more you play with her, the more she’ll talk. Her babble will transform into over 100 clear words and phrases! Caring for Luvabella is fun with her four interactive accessories! Use her spoon to feed her and she’ll chew with delight! If she’s not full, she may ask you for more. After her meal, help Luvabella learn new animal names and sounds with her Lamby toy! If she gets fussy, all she needs is her soother. When it’s time to go to bed after a big day of play, lull her to sleep with her bottle. Get to know all of Luvabella’s real baby surprises! 4 x C batteries required (not included). For ages 4 years and over.”

Add your comment to this thread and you will be entered into a prize draw where TWO winners will get - not only a £150 Argos voucher but also their very own Luvabella doll (a blond one) - worth £100.

Thanks and good luck

My toddler gives me regular ‘squeezes’ where she hugs me as tight as she possibly can. It’s usually when I’m feeling a bit cranky and she does it to cheer me up. She’s very in tune with emotions and will give her big brother and sister kisses and cuddles and tell them that she loves them ‘up to the moon’. halo

My 2 year old comes up to me for big cuddles and kisses. He especially likes snuggling on my lap whilst we read a story,

My 4 year old loves to see me smile. When I'm feeling down she will say "mummy, I love you. You're the best mummy in the world" and gives me a really big cuddle and kiss

My DD would always sing something, even if I couldn’t always understand the words, she would look me square in the eye, and just put together loads of random jubberish into a tune, then say Luvoo mammy, and give me the biggest cwtch!

I read the book 'Guess how much I love you' to my 4 year old at bedtime and after book he looks at me and says "I'm going to make you that huge pink cake and pick you some flowers from my nursery because I love You!"

He always says nicest of things to me. He always looks at me and says "Your beautiful mummy." When I dress up he actually noticed and tells me I look nice - he notices more than his dad! 😂

My three year old will ‘write’ me notes. More often than not she will tell me it says ‘to mummy, I love you. Love littlesnerr’

MiniAlphaBravo Mon 30-Oct-17 18:50:38

She says I love you so much mummy and 'I want to stay with mummy and daddy forever. Also she gives big kisses and hugs and i am the first person she looks for if she gets hurt.

BeachesnDream Mon 30-Oct-17 19:39:04

My dd writes me love letters and cards all the time and dots all her 'i's with a little love hearts, I've kept them all in a box for her.

MrsFrTedCrilly Mon 30-Oct-17 22:42:52

My Dd squeezes me in a vice like grip and tells me she wuvs me and that I’m her best friend along with kisses to the arm, elbow, forehead before a smacker on the lips!!

FridgeCut Mon 30-Oct-17 22:44:20

I left my two year old with my mum while I popped to the shop, when I got back he demanded I pick him up and gave me a big kiss. He's never done that before!

My four year old wants to marry me and talks about how our life will be when he is the daddy...

My daughter's first ever 'I love you' was to her daddy. It was lovely but I was so jealous of that. After a couple of months I realised she had never said it to me though frequently said it to her grandma, daddy, younger brother, and even her teddies got a kiss and an I love you. Which made me a bit sad, but I thought it was just because I encouraged her to say it to these people naturally whereas no-one ever did for me.

Then after a particularly lovely day very recently (she's 3 now) we had been swimming together, done crafts, and then I suggested we went for a walk. I was putting her shoes on and she just said "I do love you mummy" and I said "oh thank you! I've been wondering if you would ever say that to me". She replied saying "she was saving it for a special time because I'm her best friend". She's only said it to me one other time since, but I like to think it means more when she saves it for special moments.

When I go to kiss them goodnight, and they grab me and say "stay with me, I'll miss you" it warms my heart and makes me feel all fuzzy inside!!

SistersOfPercy Tue 31-Oct-17 12:34:50

DD used to stick little love hearts to the fridge for me ❤️

nuttyknitter Tue 31-Oct-17 12:37:38

I told my DGD, aged 3, that I loved her very much. She looked thoughtful for a second or two then replied ‘I love you too Nanny, but I love Mummy more’. And so she should!

When I was in the first trimester of this pregnancy, I was really sick. It didn’t matter where in the house our 2 1/2 year old was or what he was doing, as soon as he heard me being sick, he would run and rub my back and ask if I was ok! True love!

smudgedlipstick Tue 31-Oct-17 12:46:50

My three year old is a very feisty confident independent little girl and full of attitude! , she rarely needs my help with anything anymore and if I try I get the full force of said attitude! (Don’t know where she gets it from🙄) but last week whilst asking her questions from one of those online kid test things, I asked her what is love? She looked my square in the face, and said, well love is you mummy, you are love, with a look on her face like she couldn’t quite understand who I could ask something so obvious. Made my week

guiltynetter Tue 31-Oct-17 12:53:00

the other day i was downstairs while my DD (3) was upstairs with her dad. i heard her say ‘bye daddy! i’m going downstairs to see my best friend - mummy’ 😍 smile it made my heart feel all warm! also in the morning when she gets in my bed she won’t lie in the middle, it has to be right next to me on my pillow, so we’re ‘snug as a bug in a rug’

sharond101 Tue 31-Oct-17 12:53:49

My toddler is hugely empathic for his age and gets really upset if I hurt myself or don't get to join in something fun. He cried the other day as I was going to work and not going to the Halloween party he was going to. He said he was upset as Mummy will be sad.

georgedawes Tue 31-Oct-17 13:10:54

She is always hugging and kissing me, and always insists on kisses and cuddles before bedtime. Best part of being a parent!

Elizasmum02 Tue 31-Oct-17 13:14:26

my eldest is 15 a typical grumpy teen her sarcasm is really spectacular though, always makes me laugh out very very loud

tallandlong Tue 31-Oct-17 13:15:08

When we pick our boy up from nursery, he bursts into tears of joy when he see's us. strange as he loves nursery, but he is just so overjoyed to see us. now thats love

stefalfie11 Tue 31-Oct-17 13:15:39

I'm lucky to have a very affectionate DD and I always get cuddles and kisses as surprises. Often she'll come up behind me whilst i'm doing something else and just give me a cuddle.

lolly2011 Tue 31-Oct-17 13:16:59

WE could be sitting watching a movie or he could be in the other room and he will call, Mum, I love you.

Liskee Tue 31-Oct-17 13:17:25

My 2 year old will sometimes say, totally unprompted "I love you too, mummy".

I love that he says it even when I haven't told him I love him first, or when it's totally random and not part of our conversation at all. It's like he totally knows that I love him, and he's just reassuring me!
