Puppy Surprise Review

Puppy Surprise

“Surprise, Surprise, Puppy Surprise, will there be 3 or 4 or 5?”
Ha! Bet you sung along to that didn’t you?! Please say you did and that it’s not just me that has a million songs from toy adverts stuck in my head!

As you may have guessed, we were recently sent a Puppy Surprise to play with from Just Play (RRP £27.99). Alexa loves dogs and especially puppies but is allergic to them so having toy versions always makes her a Keep reading…

Pancake Day with Num Noms

Pancake Day with Num Noms

Up until last year I’d never had pancakes, shocking , right?! Anyways I finally rectified that problem and made sure that the kids had some too, of course I didn’t bother making the actual pancakes myself (in case I ruined them!) and bought some pre-made ones from the supermarket. Scott and Alexa totally loved them and we’ve had them a few times since. Knowing Pancake Day was coming up they’ve been getting excited and so when Num Noms challenged us Keep reading…

My Fairy Garden Review

My Fairy Garden

Occasionally there will be an advert on TV that Alexa just totally falls for and decides that she must simply have everything in it. It will have an annoyingly catchy tune to go with it and leaves not just her but me singing it over and over again and thus keeping her interest in the said product well and truly piqued. More often than not it’s something I completely can’t stand the look of but occasionally it’s something that even Keep reading…
