Term Wellies Review

As a family we spend a lot of time outside at our local country park or using our National Trust membership. This means that we all need good waterproof, warm footwear to keep us warm and dry. We recently had the chance to review some lovely kids wellies and I jumped at the chance as I knew they would fit right in with our lifestyle. Term Wellies was started 6 years ago by a husband and wife who imported children’s footwear into the UK. They wanted to bring the quality of these shoes to the UK market and it is now… View Post

Crazy Claw review and giveaway

Our latest game to review from Drumond Park is Crazy Claw. I knew all about this game before it arrived as Little Man had seen so many Youtube videos on this game. He had been going on and on about it so I knew he would be over the moon when we had the chance to review it. So what is the game… The aim of the game is to grab the balls, open them up and see if the pictures inside the ball matches one of the 3 pictures on your playing board (which each player chose before the… View Post

Learning resources Gears Gears Gears- Robot Factory

Over the last year we have really enjoyed working with Learning resources. We have reviewed some fantastic games and this one is another fantastic one. There are many different Gears Gears Gears sets but we reviewed Robot Factory with my 5 year old. This set is aimed at children aged 4-8 years old. With its bright colours and fun Robot faces this is one I knew the kids would love. Although Bubs age 2 wanted to get involved it really is to old for him to build, he could however make the cogs work once it was built up. Little… View Post

Decorating 3 rooms all at once

Recently I decided that it was a good idea to decorate the whole of our upstairs all at the same time. No one in their right mind would try to tackle 3 bedrooms all at once would they? I did and yes it was a nightmare for about 4 weeks, we were living in a total mess. Not only did I decide to decorate all the bedrooms at the same time, we also had new carpet fitted in all the bedrooms on the same day. This was a big mistake and something that I would never recommend to anyone. We basically… View Post

Gazillion Bubble Mill

Both of my boys are so different, they are both in totally different toys and games. One thing they both love to play with though is bubbles. I usually find myself sitting blowing bubbles until I am almost passing out from blowing so much. We have tried a couple of different bubble machines but I have been left very disappointed with them either no working or not blowing the bubble high enough.When we were given the opportunity to review the Gazillion giant bubble mill I was so excited for the boys as I knew they would love it. I was… View Post

Blaze and the monster machine-Racing Blaze review

It was only a few months back that we discovered blaze and the monster machines but ever since the kids have been hooked. Pretty much like most other kids that know about Blaze I should think. Today we are testing out Blaze and the Monster machine racing blaze, which the kids both love and being half term they have been falling out about who is going to have the 1st go. The little red car goes bombing round the house while the tyre shaped control is small enough for little hands. The wireless controller has a forward and reverse button which… View Post
