With cold and flu season upon us, what better way to celebrate than Bandai Slurpees Snot Suckers We were sent a snot season survival pack containing some superb snot-coloured goodies! A fleece blanket, mug, socks, beanie hat, hand warmer, and four snot suckers in a lovely Slurpees Snot Suckers drawstring bag. Unfortunately Big L would not let me dress him up and take his photo – spoilsport.  We received these last week and they have been the source of much amusement, and grossness, since. Big L, who is 7 (and a half) is of an age where bodily functions are hilarious. Lucky for me! We’veRead More →

We had an opportunity to review the Crayola scooter game recently Crayola Scoot is a game that I would say is strongly influenced by games like Splatoon by Nintendo, with a vibrant and colourful art style. In addition the main mechanic in the game is to spray paint all over the map. But let’s get right to the game. After choosing your character, boy or girl, you get in the central “hub” of Crayola Scoot Here you can choose to enter the main competition or upgrade your scooter with the parts you earn throughout the game. Should you choose to begin your career, you areRead More →

disney pixar, incredibles 2, elasticycle, hydroliner

I took Big L to see Disney Pixar’s Incredibles 2 in the summer holidays and we both loved it! We were asked to review the Incredibles 2 Hydroliner and Elasticycle and we jumped at the chance. Having seen the film we knew how the two vehicles played their part in saving the world. I’ll be honest I wasn’t expecting much – I find a lot of film merchandise  isn’t that well thought out but I was pleasantly surprised. First of all neither toy requires batteries – HURRAH!! So onto the toys: Incredibles 2 Hydroliner What a gem of a toy this is! Let me tellRead More →

Jitterbug really is a charming family game I’m not really a lover of games. I think it comes from being an only child. I had no one to play games with (everybody say “ahhhh”). However, every so often a game comes along that I actually enjoy. When we were asked to review Jitterbug Big L was overjoyed. You can thank the power of advertising and breakfast television. Yes, Milkshake, I’m looking at you. What’s in the Jitterbug’s box? When you open the box you will find: A big body A hat 4 green legs (these are fixed) 4 blue legs 4 red legs 4 yellowRead More →
