Go Jetters Magazine Review

Go Jetters Magazine

Over the weekend we received an advance copy of the new Go Jetters magazine to have a look at. Go Jetters magazine, like the CBeebies show, follows the adventures of four heroes, Xuli, Kyan, Lars and Foz, as they travel the world with their friend, Ubercorn. Of course if there are superheroes then there has to be a villain too and this one comes in the form of Grandmaster Glitch (who is actually very funny) and his Grimbots.

#EnjoyMoreWater With Robinsons Squash’d

Robinsons Squash'd

I’ll admit it …I’m rubbish when it comes to drinking water, it goes back to when I was a child and didn’t like it as it had no flavour and was ‘boring’. Scott and Alexa don’t particularly think it’s exciting either and according to a recent study conducted by Robinsons, 42% of parents said their children found water boring too.

Luckily the kids really love squash and so when Robinsons sent us some of their ultra cool bottles of Squash’d to Keep reading…

Limited Edition Carousel Pony Zelf

Limited Edition Carousel Pony Zelf

We love Zelfs. If you have no idea what a Zelf is, they’re little characters that have tall funky hair just like the Trolls that I used to collect when I was young. These are much better than the Trolls though as they’re cute to look at!

There are already 5 series of Zelfs available to collect and although we only have a few we’re looking forward to the 6th series being released at the end of July.

Each series Keep reading…

Spongebob Squarepants XXL100pc Puzzle Review

Spongebob Squarepants XXL100pc Puzzle

Scott and Alexa love puzzles and they love watching (against my will!) Spongebob Squarepants. So you can imagine their delight when they were sent the new XXL 100pc Spongebob Squarepants puzzle from Ravensburger.

This fantastically detailed and funny puzzle gives Spongebob fans a chance to puzzle every character from Bikini Bottom….but please don’t ask me to name them as once I get past Spongebob, Patrick, Squidward and Mr Crabbs.

The puzzle is aimed at older children from 6+ Keep reading…

Father’s Day In Our Single Parent Family

Father's Day Card

I’ve written about the different emotions we go through in this house on Father’s Day in previous years so I thought I’d update this year. Scott got through this year without being angry or distant like in previous years but this year Alexa reacted for the first time and it was all down to nursery. The school had arranged a breakfast and game morning before school for the children and their daddies – I thought this was a great idea as my Keep reading…
