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!

Hair Glow Rapunzel Toy Review

As Christmas grows ever closer, children may be turning their thoughts to what they hope Santa will bring.  Some children, like mine, may have already finished that all important Christmas list. If you have a Disney Princess fan in the house, it’s likely that they may have the Disney Hair Glow Rapunzel somewhere on that list. Tipped to be one of the hot toys this Christmas, making it in to the Toys’r’Us top 20, the Hair Glow Rapunzel is a must have for any little Tangled or Disney Princess fans. My daughter is a big fan of Rapunzel. I think she has seen […]

Chocolate Pen Review – National Chocolate Week

This week, from the 12th until the 18th of October, it is National Chocolate Week. There is no denying, I am a massive chocolate lover.
