Princess Peppa’s Palace

We are great  lovers Peppa Pig in our house. If you are young or old. When it’s on the TV you will always find yourself watching it,  sometimes i find myself being the only one watching it!!!

For anyone who does know about  Peppa Pig it’s a  pre-school cartoon that follows the adventures of Peppa a pig and her family and friends.  Her friends are all different mammals from dogs to rabbits and sheep that talk and act like real people.

Peppa’s friends are the same age as she is and she has a younger brother, George, In the episodes they do everyday activities like going to playgroup, swimming to riding their bikes.

Their extended family is also involved.They wear clothes, drive cars and talk but you still have the noisy the animals make there are lots of snort like pigs especially from daddy pigs and doing what pigs do best which is jumping in muddy puddles (who doesn’t love muddy puddles!!)

We had the chance to review Princess Peppa’s palace, now we were very excited about this and we are very into princess and castles at the moment. It is from around £49.99 and from ages 3 years +. With this playset comes 3 articulated figures including princess Peppa of course and lots of accessories all the regal furniture that is fit for a princess including chairs, a bed everything you need for the bathroom, a lovely mirror so princess Peppa can see how pretty she looks in her crown. There is even a jelly in the kitchen ready for a grand ball, and not forgetting the chest for storing the treasure in.

The playset itself has 2 balconies for Peppa and her friends to look out over their estate! It is decorated inside and out to look like a castle complete with flags. It all packs away with the accessories inside so that it can all be kept together.  With rotating doors, this is a great new toy from the Peppa pig range and a real must have for Peppa fans. There is endless possibilities for imaginative play and will keep them entertained for hours. It is well made and thought out your little one will be in no doubt who it is and how it the different items come together to make up the game.

 

Zuru Bunch o Balloons.

balloons

It’s summer and the good weather is here (sometimes!!). We have a large group of friends children and that get together once a month commitments permitting and we try to get outside as much as possible and are always looking for things to do to involve everyone young and old.  Hide and Seek, homemade bows and arrows, skating boarding with ramps.

In the summer it’s nice to do things with water so water pistols are a must but we wanted something a little different this year and the Bunch o balloons is a great addition to our summer games, you will be thinking water balloons great fun but it takes hours of someone usually me stood filling each balloon one at a time and then there are 30 of you all wanting to play you can imagine how long this would take! No not with Bunch o Balloons, you can fill 100 yes 100 balloons in 60 seconds yes 60 seconds!!

Everything you need is in the pack for around £7.98 3 bunches of self-sealing balloons and a connector to go on your hose pipe or water sauce

. So easy connect to the hose, fill and see the balloons self-seal and make all the balloons you need in minutes and it is easy to do everyone wants to have a go. We have never had so many balloons where everyone can take part and have some good old-fashioned outdoor fun.
Another great feature is the balloons and o-rings are biodegradable. So you don’t have to worry about collecting every last bit of balloon.

Summer Games From Drummond Park

We got to review 2 games for the girls, and we all love games in our house. We had Pumpaloons and Pig Goes Pop, made by Drumond Park.

pig

Pig Goes Pop is for ages 4+ and 2-6 players and it retails at £15.99, basically as you feed the pig the burgers and pump his tummy without bursting open his chef’s coat!!!

You have different coloured burgers that have numbers on them this indicates how many times you have to pump the pigs head, you roll the dice pick up what it shows on the dice you pop the burger in the pigs mouth remembering to check the bottom of the burger to see how many times you need to pump as you pump his head his tummy swells, if his coat goes pop then you lose but if not you keep playing until he goes pop this is a great game to help the little ones learn to count and have some fun along the way.

This is very well made and robust as Boo has taken a shine to it and takes it everywhere at nanny’s!! It great fun pumping his head and wait for that tummy to go pop.

eee

Pumpaloons is a game we have wanted for ages it’s for 2 players and for ages 4+. It comes with everything you need to race to be the first one to pump up your pumpaloons. This retails at £14.99 and as you can see they make great friends to sit on the sofa with and watch tv

There is Stripeyloon and Spottyloon, you need to insert the tube tip into the blue valve in the pump, you can use any part of your body feet or hands to pump up your pumpaloon the winner is the one that gets there first, this is great fun for parties with take it in turns to pump up the pumpaloons, thus us great fun and also a little exercise along the way. One good thing is that when then have been blown up its easy to deflate too, just pull the long thin tip off the hoes this helps keeps the valve open and then you just scrunch and squash the pumpaloon down until all the air is out.

Both the girls love the pumpaloons and they can often be found carting them around and talking to them, after all, pumpaloons need love too!

A Big Fat Fathers Day Gift Guide

So here a few things to give you some inspiration for fathers day gifts. Something for every man and for evererasmicy budget. Enjoy…

Firstly we have a great brand for anyone looking for a bargain this fathers day. Erasmic, some really great goodies for shaving and with prices starting from £1, you really can’t go wrong. Erasmic off some really traditional shaving products, from a really lovely shaving cream, to a great brush for applying it perfectly. Erasmic have put together a fantastic range which really does work.

moose head

Next is Moosehead. I know hubby is always struggling to find something to keep his hair in place. I think we may have tried everything out there! Moosehead not only smells amazing, but it keeps his hair in place. Both the dough and the paste have passed every test so far, I think I might even have a try! Moosehead retails at £3.99 and is available from amazon.

Next is a firm favourite from my dad, the range from wilkinson sword. These trusty razors are fabulous and the hydro five range is no different. With five blades and three different vibration wilkinsonswordsettings, it really is one of a kind. Adjusting the shave helps stop skin irritation. I think given the chance I would maybe sneak this one for myself, but I think he would notice somehow. A razor like this makes a great gift, as well as being super useful, it really does work. This set retails for around £12.99.

golf balls

This is my favourite I think, a light up golf ball, for the golfers who play well into the evening. These new golf balls from LUMilife and LED, they light up when you give them a good whack, which of course my Dad will do!

Perfect for playing well into dusk, these golf balls make finding that hidden ball just a little bit easier. A pack of three balls retails for around £12.99 and I can imagine they will be very popular, especially when the nights start to draw in.

morph suit

This might have to be my husbands favorite. The Iron man morph suit. He is a huge marvel fan so this was perfect. The characters available are Iron man,  Spiderman, Wolverine, Captain america and Dead Pool. Each suit has something unique to the character to it. Take for example the Iron man suit. There is a pouch for your smartphone, so you can download the app and then the suit really comes to life. “Select the Zappar section. Give your phone to a mate, tell them to stand back a few feet and get them to zap the code. Strike your perfect Iron-Man pose, hold your palm out and activate the blaster”

Amazing, right? This full body suit has kept Hubby entertained for hours, I have to do all I can to stop him going on the school run in this outfit. Not sure people are ready for tat yet. Another great thing about these suits are the fact you can drink and pee in them! Who knew?! These fabulous morph suits retails for around £45.99 and are perfect for big marvel fans.

The Defender series from Otterbox, a great way of protecting your phone. Like many people, my husband is very clumsy. As are my children. And maybe me? We tend to drop everything and the kids tend to smear our nice things with food and paint, never a good combination. But now we are fighting back with this phone case from Otterbox. This case has several layers so protects to the highest degree. It has been through some rough patches and is still going strong, so its looking good! The Defender case would be the perfect gift for any man who loves his phone. I know my husband would be lost without his. They retail at around £3cargo0.

Who doesn’t like a cupper? Well no-one I know thats for sure. So this little gem from Cargo is the perfect little gift. This mug retails for £5, so its perfect as a gift from the little ones. Shaped like a tankard, its a really manly mug, one I can’t see myself stealing anytime soon, so Dad is safe.

bluebeards

Bluebeards Revenge, I love this brand. Their whole branding is fabulous, not for the bum fluff brigade and all that. This fantastic shaving brand has so much to offer, from shaving cream to eau du toilette, which smells amazing! It does come with a rather amusing love life warning. I can see why. This luxury shaving brand is just stunning and I expect it to go from strength to strength.

 Brita, a rather unconventional gift but I think he will love it. This great water bottle is perbritafect for anyone looking for the perfect drink on the go. Brita is a well known and trusted brand, on which is always creating something new and exciting. The Brita fill and go has become a popular item in this house recently. With Brita being known for its filtered water, you can now have this water on the go. Its easy to fill and clan and comes in a different range of colours. Now Hubby is looking to start getting fit, this has been the perfect addition to his routine and if perfect for when he is out on his bike. Probably not the most obvious gift, but super useful.

Patchwork. We are big Patchwork fans after having some lovely samples for Christmas. Now they have a great new basket perfect for fathers day. The quiet night in hamper. The great thing about this hamper is having the ability to choose what goes in. So you can completely personalise it for the lucky recipient. They retail for around £30 and make the perfect yummy gift for a night in. Another great gift to have with this would be some lovely Artisan tea, the perfect cuppa before bed.

 

 

Another greaIsland Black £59t gift this fathers day is shoes. With summer well and truly here, the perfect pair of sandals would be the perfect gift. Hotter shoes have some amazing sandals this season.

This pair of mens sandals retail for around £59 and are worth every penny. They are made to the highest standard, something you can really feel when your used to wearing cheaper alternatives. Hubby likened them to walking on clouds, which is high praise indeed. A pair of shoes from hotter shoes would make anyones fathers day fantastic, they really are second to none.neutrogena

Lastly we have a super useful shampoo. Thier first release in 30 years a fantastic new product from T/Gel. Although this may not be your first choice when it comes to gifts, but it may have to be the most useful/thoughtful gift going. This new T/gel is a shampoo and conditioner in one, which is great in itself but it also offers a flake free scalp, something most men are after if were going to be honest. Perfect.

 

So thats it for my big fat fathers day gift guide, more great gifts coming soon 🙂
