Little Brian Face Paint Sticks Review

Little Brian Face Paint Sticks Review – All kids seem to love having their face painted and Isabelle is no different. We’ve stood in endless queues at fetes, fairs and school events so she can be transformed into a Butterfly or Unicorn.

When we were asked to review Little Brian Face Paint Sticks we were more than a little but excited. I was slightly worried that my actual face painting expertise might look more like a five year old armed with their Mums make-up bag but was willing to give it a go.

Little Brian Face Paint Sticks

We’re not new to the Little Brian range. We’ve reviewed both the Little Brian Paint Sticks and the Little Brian Fabric Paint Sticks which were both a big hit.

The Little Brian Face Paint Sticks come in a pack of twelve which retail at £9.99.

They look like marker pens and twist up like a glue stick, and it looks like we’re going to get quite a few faces out of them. The idea is that you can create the faces by using the face paint sticks like using a pen, so drawing on their faces.

We were given the challenge to create a Ladybird, a Dragon and we opted to have a go at the Unicorn. The set comes with a sheet which gives you step by step instructions on how to create twelve different faces from a Dog to a Tiger.

The Ladybird

I created the Ladybird using the face paint sticks as per the instructions. The paint glides on the face nicely, but it is quite tricky to do the smaller, detailed parts so I opted to use a paint brush with a little bit of water.

The Dragon

The paints are very quick drying which is perfect for kids with no patience like Isabelle. I love that the colours are as bright as they should be and were very easy to wash off.

The Unicorn

Isabelle is keen to give the Face Paint Sticks a go on her own, and I feel quite confident that she would be able to use these with minimal mess.

Our Thoughts

All in all these Face Paint Sticks would be a great buy to use at a birthday party or just to do on a lovely sunny day. The colours are lovely and bright, and apart from a little help for details with a brush they were extremely easy to use. The Face Paint Sticks get a big thumbs up from us.

Blogger Board Game Club – Get Packing

We were very pleased to be asked to be part if the Blogger Board Game Club by Asmodee since this is something we can do with just Isabelle. Having a younger brother means that she craves a bit of one on one time with us, so playing a game can be the perfect way.

Blogger Board Game Club - Today we're reviewing the game Get Packing where you have to get a set number of objects into your suitcase and be able to close it in the quickest time. Suitable from age 6

Get Packing

Get Packing is a fun game for 2 – 4 players aged 6 and above.

Each player has a little suitcase and a set of objects such as sun cream, a pair of pants, a hat and sunglasses.

There are a set of destination cards, and each country card tells you the items that you have to fit in your suitcase.

The aim of the game is to be the first person to fit all of the items in your suitcase first, and be able to shut it.

It sounds simple, but the items have to fit in a certain way to fit and be able to close it. The first person to complete three suitcases is the winner.

It sounds simple enough, but our first attempts were pretty bad.

There is a sheet that you can look at which shows how the items fit in which we’ve let Isabelle use the first few times. Now that we’ve done it a few times we don’t need to look at the help sheet so much.

Our Thoughts

Isabelle really liked the look of this game, especially the little suitcases. Initially she found it quite frustrating until we realised that there was a help sheet.

Blogger Board Game Club - Today we're reviewing the game Get Packing where you have to get a set number of objects into your suitcase and be able to close it in the quickest time. Suitable from age 6

We played it so that once you turned the country card, you had to find the right suitcase on the sheet and pack it as quickly as you can. Once we had done this a few times it was only Isabelle that looked at the help sheet.

Isabelle thinks she’s ready to take it to the next level and do it without the help sheet next time.

We thought it was a great game and have played it several times now. You can buy Get Packing from Amazon and other game retailers for around £22.99.

Basic Fun Easter Gift Review

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!

Basic Fun Easter Gifts - If you're looking for an inexpensive alternative to chocolate for the littles this Easter then here are a few from Basic Fun that I'm sure your kids would love to receive

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’.

Cutetito

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

Basic Fun Easter Gifts - If you're looking for an inexpensive alternative to chocolate for the littles this Easter then here are a few from Basic Fun that I'm sure your kids would love to receive

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?

Fuzzikins Bedtime Bunnies Review

Fuzzikins Bedtime Bunnies Review

Fuzzikins Bedtime Bunnies Review – We’ve been sent a set of Fuzzikins Bedtime Bunnies from Interplay to review which Isabelle was very excited about.

What you get

  • 1 Large Fuzzikins Bunny
  • 1 Medium Fuzzikins Bunny
  • 1 Small Fuzzikins Bunny
  • 3 Felt tip Pens
  • 3 Fuzzikins Felt Beds

  • Practice Colouring Templates

We cut out the practice colouring templates so that Isabelle could work out her designs before she coloured on the bunnies which I thought was quite a good think since Isabelle’s a bit of a perfectionist.

Each Bunny had it’s very own sleeping bag with accessories including sleep masks which were a nice touch.

Once she had completed her designs she made a start on the real thing. The bunny’s were really easy to colour on and can be wiped clean if any mistakes are made or if you fancy changing the designs.

The sleeping bag much to my relief were already pre-made and came with felt stickers to design the beds with. There were even Super Hero masks and a cape for them.

The Fuzzikins Bedtime Bunnies set is aimed at children 4 years and over and retail at £9.99 from leading retailers.

Our thoughts

Isabelle is very much into role play and add a bit of craft into the mix and you’ve hit the nail on the head in terms of finding something fun to do.

I set her up with this kit and away she went with no additional help needed since there was no cutting or sewing, everything was ready and easy to use.

Once she’d created her designs on the templates, she coloured the actual bunnies and then played with them for ages. She’s not ready to wash them yet as she really likes the way they look, but she’s looking forward to changing their style soon.

I think this was a lovely kit which would be perfect for a rainy day or a home day when I’ve got loads to do. At £9.99 this is a really good price for what you get. There are other kits and animals that you can get in the range to add to your collection.

The Fuzzikin’s Bedtime Bunnies get’s a huge thumbs up from us.

Hatchimals CollEGGtibles Season 5 – Mermals

Hatchimals CollEGGtibles Season 5 – Mermals

Hatchimals CollEGGtibles Season 5 – Mermals from Spinmaster. When Isabelle first saw the advert for these she did her usual pause and rewind the TV so that she could show me them in the hope that we would stop what we were doing immediately, go to the shops and buy them ALL!

Hatchimals CollEGGtibles Season 5 - Mermals from Spinmaster. See what we thought of the new range and which Hatchimals we unboxed

The Season 5 range is slightly different as they are colour changing which just adds to the excitement tenfold.

There are lots of different sets to collect from pocket money affordable single packs at to playsets, and with over 80 to collect it’s a pretty long check list.

Within the series there are lots of different types of Hatchimals including:

Mermals – Half Hatchimal half Mermaid – Blue Sparkly Egg
Underwater friends – Blue Sparkly Egg
Mermal Twins – Blue Sparkly Egg
Sunshine Surf – Special Edition – Blue Oval Egg
Mischief Marsh _ Yellow Swirly Egg
Racing River – Purple Horn Shaped Egg
Blissful Bay – Limited Edition – Pink Sparkly Egg
6-Pack Shell – Peach Eggs
One Dozen – Blue Sparkly Egg

Each type of Hatchimal comes in a different type of egg as above but you won’t know what’s inside until you open them.

Of course, the first thing that Isabelle always does with collectibles is scan the checklist and pick out the ones that she would like to get the most before she opens the eggs.

How do you open the eggs?

Each of the eggs has a heart on them which you press and the egg cracks revealing your hatchimal. Isabelle tried her best to split the eggs in half, but some of them are impossible to open this way, and then her impatience gets the better of her and she just pulls them apart.

We were sent a Single Pack, a 6-pack Shell, and a 4 pack with bonus totally 13 hatchimals which was very exciting.

What we got:

A Single Hatchimals Season 5 Pack
A Four Pack Hatchimals CollEGGtibles + Bonus Pack
A 6-Pack Hatchimals CollEGGtibles Shell Pack

In the single pack we unboxed a Sunshine Owling which is a common Hatchimal. She was very impressed with this one as it had its very own surf board.

In the 4 pack + bonus we got four mermal eggs in which we got Mer-pandoo, Mer-Seaspoon (rare), Mer-Unikeet, and (*drumroll) – Koalabee which are Mermal twins, and a Blissful Bay Egg which contained a limited edition Blissful Kangaroose.

In the 6-shell pack she got Sapphire Anteagle, Sapphire Owlicorn, Sapphire Burtle, Sapphire Girreo, Sapphire Foxfin and Sapphire Penguala.

How do they colour change?

Parts of each of the hatchimals change colour in the water whether it be their tail or a gem that they are holding onto which then changes back once they are dry.

The Hatchimals CollEGGtibles are recommended from age 5 upwards and are available from most toy shops and Amazon.

There is also an App that you can download to keep track of the Hatchimals that you’ve collected.

Our thoughts

Isabelle loves a collectible and has quite an extensive range of different collectibles that she likes to add to on birthdays, christmas or through saving her spending money. She loves the element of surprise, and whilst there does always seem like a lot of packaging compared the end result she does play with them time and again which makes them worthwhile.

She was very excited that out of the twelve Hatchimals she managed to get a rare, a limited edition and a set of twins which she was so thrilled with. The colour changing aspect of these Hatchimals makes them extra special, and also gives her a good excuse for taking them in the bath.

These sets would definitely make a lovely gift whether it be for a birthday, Christmas or even as an Easter Gift.

Farmyard Friends Chunky Puzzle Review

Farmyard Friends Chunky Puzzle Review

We were sent a Farmyard Friends Chunky Puzzle from Ravensburger which is a chunky puzzle featuring nine farmyard animals. Each puzzle is two pieces or three if you include the frames that each puzzle comes in.

The puzzle is aimed at children from 18 months on and has large brightly coloured pieces which are nice and sturdy which is perfect for this age range.

The animals include:

A Pig

A Cow

Although Freddie is only almost ten months old, we have had this puzzle out on the floor for him several times. We’ve been singing Old McDonald whilst making the puzzle and sounding out the animal noises which he is enjoying.

The puzzle retails for around £8.50 onwards which I think is a great price.

Our thoughts

We were really pleased with this puzzle and I think it’s going to be played with a lot by Freddie. It was also something that Isabelle could do with Freddie to keep him occupied and her involved.

We added this to our Easter Gift for Kids list since it would be a good option other than chocolate for toddlers and young children.

Did you know that kites date back to China in 470 B.C. and the history of the origins relate to the way the wind affects the leaves on the trees, te shelters the people lived in and the blowing of the sails on their ship and the hats they wore upon their heads.

The impressive range of kites are supplied in their own transport tube and are available in both Aircraft and Twinstar styles and are all super-easy to assemble and launch up to 300 feet in the air.

We headed to the site of the Exmouth Kite Festival which we went to last year. Its a large open space right next to the estuary which is the perfect spot for flying. we weren’t the only ones with the same idea as we saw families and groups unloading kites, windsurfing gear and surfing gear.

We were thoroughly impressed when we took the kite out of the tube and apart from attaching the spool it was ready to go. It was a lot bigger than I expected, but was a cool shape and we were excited to give it a go. It looked well made even with our inexpert eyes.

It was hilarious watching Isabelle and Chris getting the kite in the air. Watching Isabelle being pulled along as the wind took the kite was so funny, but she soon got the hand of letting out the string and it went really high looping and soaring.

We all had a turn and I was quite surprised at how strong the pull was when I had a go. Freddie observed from the comfort of his pram and was happy sat watching.

I would say that we spent a good couple of hours flying the kite before everybody got a bit hungry and cold.

Our Thoughts

We really enjoyed ourselves. The kite itself was well made and easy to use straight out of the tube. We spent a good couple of hours running around flying, taking it in turns which was a lot of fun.

I would definitely recommend the Kitedrone kites for a fun and free activity (aside the initial cost) which gets the family outside and running about.

Next time were going to make it a bit of a family thing and go with some of the cousins which will be a fun day for Isabelle.

Scruff-a-luv Blossom Bunny Reveal & Review

Scruff-a-Luv Blossom Bunny Reveal and Review

We were asked to do a Scruff-a-luvs Blossom Bunny reveal which Isabelle jumped at the chance of since surprise toys are totally ‘her thing’.

What is a Scruff-a-luv?

The limited edition Blossom Bunnies come into your life as a sorry looking matted ball of fur. Give them a wash to reveal their true cuteness and then dry them and brush them to transform them into the cute FFF (Furry Friend Forever).

The Scruff-a-luv Blossom Bunnies are limited edition. Which one will you get? Lemon Drizzle or Peppermint (each sold separately).

Each Scruff-a-luv comes with their own brush and accessory as well as your adoption certificate. Only by saving a Scruff-a-luv will you find out. In return they will be your FFF (Furry Friend Forever).

Scruff-a-luvs retail at £19.99 and are suitable from age 3.

The Reveal!

Watch our reveal video and see how Isabelle transforms the bunny from Scruffy to Adorable.

Our thoughts

Isabelle really enjoyed the whole unboxing and was really pleased that she got Peppermint. She would like a pet of her own and a rabbit would be her first choice.

She enjoyed the whole process of washing her, drying and then brushing her to look like the cute bunny that she now is.

It was a lovely thing to do together, and the amount of time it took to dry was the only thing that I could fault. It took a long time to dry with a hairdryer.

These would make a fab alternative to chocolate Easter present and a fun thing to do on a rainy day.

Do you have a Scruff-a-luv? Which one do you have?

Lollipets Interactive Pets Review

Lollipets Interactive Pets Review

Lollipets Interactive Pets Review – Have you seen the latest interactive pets from Spinmaster. With 20 characters to collect including mice, elephants and rabbits.

Isabelle was asked to review a selection of the Lollipets which she was very excited about. We received:

Hazel the dog from Cake Pop Coast, Smushy the Mouse from Marshmallow Meadows and Echo the Elephant from Cake Pop Coast.

The single packs retail at £7.99 and the double packs at £14.99 which I thought was a reasonable price.

What are Lollipets?

Lollipets are the latest collectible interactive toys from Spinmaster. Each pet comes with its own lollipop which is used to control the pet:

Holding the lollipop in front of the pet will make them chase it.

Hover the lollipop above the pet to see them hop.

Chase them with the lollipop from behind.

Make them dodge the lollipop by holding it to their side.

They also interact with other pets by giving them a kiss.

You can switch the pets on and off by a switch underneath, and they can be paired to their lollipop which sticks magnetically when you put them away.

The pets are small enough that you can take them with you to keep the kids entertained.

Our Thoughts

Isabelle loves the Lollipets and was very pleased in particular to receive the elephant which she’d hoped to get.

Freddie took a keen interest in these and now that he’s crawling there’s no stopping him from chasing them.

Isabelle played with these a lot over the half-term and when her friend came to stay they each chose one to look after. They now live in her princess castle when she’s not playing with them.

From a parents point of view I thought these were a great toy and something you could stash away in the birthday box for upcoming birthday parties. They’re reasonable priced as well.

What collectibles are your kids covering at the moment?

Off the Hook Dolls Review

Off the Hook Dolls Review

Off the Hook Dolls Review – when we were asked to review a selection of Off the Hook Dolls by Spinmaster, Isabelle screamed with delight. She’d seen them advertised on TV and had already made us aware that she would like some of these for her birthday ( September) and Christmas!

Off The Hook Dolls Review

Off the Hook Dolls are interchangeable dolls that you can take apart to create your own stylish looks just by pulling them apart and clicking into place, including the hair.

The individual Off the Hook doll sets (RRP £7.99) come with a doll and two surprise blind bag style packages which can include fun accessories such as hats, sunglasses, shoes and bags.

Off The Hook Dolls Review

We were sent the Off the Hook Style Studio (RRP £19.99) which comes with a doll, six outfit options and six accessories, four of which come as a surprise ‘blind bag’ style.

Off The Hook Dolls Review

This gives you the option to mix and match over 100 combinations. The Style Studio wardrobe has hanging space for both tops and bottoms as well as spaces to places shoes and accessories.

There are six Off The Hook girls to collect –  Jenni, Vivian, Alexis, Naia, Mila and Brooklyn.

Off The Hook Dolls Review

There’s also a checklist so that you can keep track of all the outfits and accessories that you have.

Isabelle has had a lot of fun creating lots of different style combinations. Of course all of the dolls have been given American accents. She’s really into making fake You Tube videos and these are the perfect toy for this.

Off The Hook Dolls Review

Our Thoughts

From my point if view as a mum I can’t fault this collection. They’re affordable, have lots of appeal for my daughters age range of eight and are affordable to buy for your own children or to give as gifts.

Of course my opinion means nothing unless its followed by a big thumbs up from Isabelle which the Off the Hook Dolls whole heartedly get! She loved setting up the wardrobe, the dolls and all the accessories. They’re also small enough that she took her entire collection to Nanny and Papa’s to play with when we went for dinner, and her friends have also taken a keen interest. The blind bags that came with the sets with additional accessories were the icing on the cake for Isabelle who is obsessed with surprise gifts.
