Basic Fun Easter Gift Review
?????Basic Fun Easter Gift Review – I know that we’ve already done an alternative Easter Gift Review but when we were offered the opportunity to receive some Basic Fun items that would be suitable as Easter Gifts we jumped at the chance.
Let me tell you why – Retro My Little Pony!
Need I say more!
The My Little Ponies that Isabelle plays with whilst are lovely, are not the My Little Pony’s that my sister and I played with as kids. Nowadays, the ponies have far more features, are slimmed down and the range is huge, but they were the must have toy and you were lucky if you had one.
We did also get a Little Lucky Lunchbox and a Cutetitos so lets not get too nostalgic.
Little Lucky Lunchbox
We hadn’t seen these before so Isabelle was super keen to get this cracked open to see what was inside.
The Little Lucky Lunchbox is a cute metal lunchbox which varies in design (so also collectible) and each lunchbox contains two foodie friends and two secret surprises. There are ten different lunchboxes to collect and 50 different surprises to collect. These retail for £6.99 from Amazon and other retailers and are suitable from 4+ years.
What we got
Oh Isabelle does love a surprise toy. The sight of the checklist is enough to send her over the edge with excitement!!
We got an Orange Bubble can where the lid pops off so you can hide things inside and a squishy Taco which had a little blind bag hiding inside it.
The two surprise gifts were a Foodie Friends Sticker which is a Blackberry and the other surprise was a little Pig.
Isabelle really loved the Lunchbox and it’s contents since it’s the perfect size to use as play food for some of her other toys. She’s already added this to her extensive list of ‘wants’.
This is Isabelle’s second Cutetito, she also has Luckito the cat which she loves.
Each Cutetitos comes wrapped like a burrito with the foil wrapper like you would get from a street food seller. Unwrap the burrito to reveal which of the Cutetio bunch you will get.
This time we got: Chihuahito the dog!
She’s purple and is Medium Spice which I think Isabelle would be able to handle.
This revelation has sparked up the old ‘can I have a dog’ question for Isabelle as she would like to have her own dog that she can carry around and a chihuahua is currently top of her list. Never mind that we already have a lovely dog, albeit a big and hairy and certainly not one you can carry around.
Isabelle likes to keep her Cutetitos in their wraps so they look like they’re in sleeping bags.
My Little Pony Retro
I saved the best til last, in my opinion. Isabelle was quite intrigued to see what kind of toys I used to play with in the olden days. Cheeky Monkey! A My Little Pony Retro…….
???????She noticed straight away that the pony has fatter legs and is bigger than the ponies that she has. She loved that it had lovely colourful hair and that it came with a comb which I’m not sure mine did.
The names are different which I’m not aware of when these changed. Isabelle recieved Confetti which she absolutely loves.
What chocolate alternatives are you getting for your kids?
