Disney Star Darlings Dolls

Disney Star Darlings Dolls

Being a great lover of anything remotely girly, no-one was more excited than Alexa when a very pretty, large box arrived just for her a few weeks ago. It took her mere minutes to open it and discover three new dolls to play with. The dolls in the box are Disney Star Darlings from Jakks Pacific and are currently Alexa’s new found favourite dolls!

The Disney Star Darlings are based on the characters from the Disney animation who Keep reading…

Air Hogs RC Thunderbird 2

Air Hogs RC Thunderbird 2

5…4…3…2..1…Thunderbirds Are Go! It’s impossible not to get excited at the mere mention of the Thunderbirds (or it is in this house at least!). When the Thunderbirds recently re-launched on tv I was a bit sceptical due the fact I hated the original (I’m NOT old enough to have seen it first hand but I saw some when I was younger) but as soon as I saw it I was hooked and so was Scott. So when the Air Hogs Keep reading…

Celebrating Christmas with Anki OVERDRIVE

Anki OVERDRIVE #AnkiChristmas

If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you may have noticed on Sunday that my little Paines and I ventured out of the house and went along to the #AnkiChristmas party. The kids were itching to get there and play Anki OVERDRIVE and Scott was especially looking forward to getting to see the new Supertrucks (he knows about everything thanks to the wonders of YouTube!).

When we arrived, both children were given a very cool black t-shirt with Keep reading…

Virgil Tracy Costume from Pretend to Bee

Virgil Tracy Costume from Pretend to Bee

Scott is a huge fan of Thunderbirds and we both love watching it and doing the iconic countdown together…who doesn’t?! In anticipation for his birthday on Halloween he had asked if I would get him a Thunderbirds costume and I said I would. I went off and ordered a Scott Tracy costume (I wanted Scott to be Scott – sad, I know!) but whilst waiting for that to arrive I was offered the chance to review a Virgil Tracy costume Keep reading…

Disney Princess Belle Musical Tea Party Cart

Belle Musical Tea Party Cart

Ok, before we go any further I have to confess something …I’ve never seen Beauty and the Beast the whole way through! I’ve seen bits and pieces of it but have never sat and watched it all. There, job done! Despite this my lovely daughter has turned out remarkably well and knows and loves all things Disney Princess and when I laid eyes on Jakks Disney Princess Belle Musical Tea Party Cart at a blogging conference I just knew she Keep reading…

Uncle Milton Star Wars Spacecraft Flight Lab

Uncle Milton Star Wars Spacecraft Flight Lab

When we were recently offered the chance to review the Uncle Milton Star Wars Spacecraft Flight Lab I immediately said yes. Scott loves Star Wars and things that fly, he especially loves building/creating things so it was clearly going to be a hit.

The Spacecraft Flight Lab contains the following:
8 sheets of paper featuring 4 different spacecraft from the Star Wars films (2 of each design), a propeller, a charger and instruction leaflets.

To build each Keep reading…

Num Noms Lip Gloss Truck

Num Noms Lip Gloss Truck

Whilst at an event during the summer, Scott and Alexa had fun playing with a truck and they loved it so much I had to literally prize it out of their hands so we could leave at the end! Roll on 6 weeks later and that very same truck had arrived in our house for them to play with only it was much better than they remembered as this one came with all the bits it should – the Num Keep reading…

#ClangersForKindness Giveaway

#ClangersForKindness Clangers

With today being World Kindness Day I figured it would be the perfect opportunity to share a new competition with you that’s all about Kindness (ok, I was meaning to post it earlier in the week but got sidetracked after our small fire but hey, it’s all worked out ok, right?!). The Clangers spread kindness every day on the little blue planet and the #ClangersForKindness campaign aims to encourage children, parents (and all adults) to spread some kindness each day Keep reading…

Num Noms Wacky Bakers

Num Noms Wacky Bakers

At the end of the summer we were asked to take part in a Num Noms challenge called Wacky Bakers to coincide with the Great British Bake Off. As part of this all we had to do was take inspiration from the many different combinations of Num Noms and create our own with food.

It sounds pretty simple, right? Um, I guess, but we quickly found that what looks amazing in our heads didn’t quite translate to what we actually produced!
