Chocolate Lolly Maker Review

I’m always looking for new ways to keep the kids entertained, particularly during the school holidays. While my son would rather spend time on his iPad, my daughter is always looking for something to do. She loves making things: arts, crafts, baked goods, she’s not fussed. So long as she can get stuck in, she’s happy. We were recently sent the Chocolate Lolly Maker from John Adams, and it looked liked something she’d love. As the name suggests, the Chocolate Lolly Maker is a kit for making your own chocolate lollies. Inside the box you receive: Chocolate melter & utensils […]

Fuzzikins Cozy Cats Review

We were recently sent a Fuzzikins Cozy Cats set to try. As a lover of cats and all things crafty, this set looked perfect for Caitlin. The Cozy Cats set contains three colour your own kitties, along with the materials needed to make their beds. You also receive three markers, so you can colour in and decorate your cats. Caitlin loves crafts, but it’s often something that fills me with dread. When I hear the word craft, I automatically think mess; Glue, paint and glitter everywhere. Imagine my delight when I realised this was a relatively mess free project! There’s […]

Family Games Night – Megableu Games Review

I love getting together as a family for games night. Particularly now, as the evenings draw in. We are a family of tech geeks, I won’t deny that, but sometimes you just can’t beat a good old fashioned board game. In the cooler evenings, it’s nice to close the curtains, light the stove and all gather together in the living room. We love the classics, but we also like to try out new games too. When we were given the opportunity to try some Megableu games, we couldn’t wait to put them to the test. We received three games from the […]

Kinetic Sand Build Crash ’em Cars Review

We were recently sent a new playlet from the Kinetic Sand Build range, the Kinetic Sand Build Crash ’em Cars. Being big fans of kinetic sand, we couldn’t wait to put the new range to the test! Kinetic sand is a mouldable sand which can be used to build and shape. It has a texture almost like wet sand, but it is completely dry. It oozes though your fingers, but when pressed together it becomes firm enough to build with. It’s quite a strange feeling, in fact it’s quite mesmerising. It’s a popular toy for children with sensory needs. We’ve […]
