When it comes to guilty pleasures it does not come much better than Peppa Pig. Packed full of cringeworthy adult humor that makes your child question why you are giggling like a hyperactive 12 year old.
Then Astley Baker Davies create Ben and Holly’s little kingdom. A world filled with elves, fairies, magic and bags of nonsense and humor.
I am known to look through the Argos catalogue and excitedly point out to my daughter Peppa Pig and Ben & Holly related thing’s, in turn encouraging her to want it, (and like her mother she almost always tends to get what she wants.)
So when we were offered the chance to review some goodies you can imagine my excitement,
I am still in sync with my inner child.
We have received….
A Little castle magical playset (age 3+) RRP £24.99:
The home of the royal Thistle family.
The set consists of a 6 floor castle and a courtyard, furnishings, 4 figurines, a large version of Hollys wand which is interactive with characters by being able to pick them up and make them fly, and will also interact with some of the castles magic furnishings.
All the contents fit nicely inside the castle making for quick and easy tidy up time.
It really is a lovely set and is an ideal gift for any fans of the series.
Also the fact that the series has Ben and Holly as the main characters and the set has a variety of colours, it makes it suitable for girls and boys.
A flying fairy Fleur (age 3+) RRP £3.99:
This is an additional character that is for the castle set that comes with it’s own large wand to make the figurines fly. There are about 8 figurines available. As far as the girls are concerned, she is magically flying which adds much more fun to the whole thing!
Ben & Holly’s little kingdom wooden dominoes (age 3+) RRP £5.99:
The dominoes are a 28 piece set and have some nice graphics of characters and insects on them instead of dots. This is more a visual matching game. My daughter enjoys playing dominoes with Nan and Grandad and is just getting into pairs, so this combined is a great idea. This is a good set to keep her young mind occupied and have fun playing with and identifying her favourite characters from the show.
We have had loads of fun playing with all the above toys, they are great for any Ben and Holly fan!
