Project MC2 Crayon Makeup Science Kit Review

As you know, we’re big fans of Project MC2 in this house. We’ve had a decent variety of Project MC2 dolls and the Project MC2 Spy Bag is still our favourite from the product range, but my girls were pretty excited by the Project MC2 Crayon Makeup Science Kit.

Tinsy Winsy Weeny Tots

I’ve mentioned a few times how my girls just love teeny tiny collectibles, so when we had the opportunity to review a new range of collectible toys – the Tinsy Winsy Weeny Tots dolls – we jumped at it.

As it happens, these arrived the same week Aviya lost her bed-time buddy, her favourite cuddle toy, which seems to have remained behind somewhere while we were on holiday, so these have temporarily dulled the wailing and gnashing of teeth while I scramble to find it.

Last year we told you about the first series of Lol Surprise dolls – the exciting unboxing toy that gives you layers of surprises.  Well, we’re back again with Lol Surprise’s Lil’ Sister.

There are 45 of these doll combinations to collect, and they come in a little cheaper at £4.99 (compared to £7.99 for the big sister).

My Mermaid Lagoon Review

Aviya may be only five years old, but she has a serious love for snow globes and is building quite the collection, but we do sometimes have tears as she likes to play with them, and snow globes aren’t exactly made from the strongest glass. That’s the main reason I loved the idea of My Mermaid Lagoon, a magical mermaid world with no water but glittery kenetic sand. My Mermaid Lagoon

Beautiful 3D Cinderella Puzzle Review

I have a longstanding love for Disney’s Cinderella. As the oldest child in a family with working parents, I always had more responsibilities and chores than my siblings, and at a young age, my granny started calling me Cinderella, and well, I’ve never slept in the cinders next to the fire (unless you count camping under the stars!) or had two ugly step-sisters take over my home (though I do have two daughters, and now I mention it, it rarely looks like my home anymore!) When I was asked if the girls would like to review the Ravensburger Cinderella Puzzle, I said YES! But actually, I was lying. I had no intention of sharing it with them. Personally, I think the Cinderella Carriage looks gorgeous on my windowsill!

Character Options Easy Braids {Review}

My girls love role play. If 20 years from now they’re both actresses, I’d not be in the least bit surprised. They can spend their days lost in play, if I don’t pull them away to do something ‘more constructive’. So when I saw the Character Options Easy Braids machine, I knew it would be one they’d have fun with.

The Easy Braids machine is a plastic jobbie with three funnels through which you thread the hair you want braided, then you press the button and just like that, lovely braided hair.

“Word Has It!” Game Review

Another game review today as I’ve been really slack in getting these games online, even though we’ve been playing them for weeks! Today’s game is super for anyone who loves word building games – the game is Word Has Itby University Games, and it’s best suited to those who can actually read.

The idea of Word Has It is to build the longest word you can within the given time limit, the given starting letter and the given category. So to start, you choose a category card – say ‘something that grows’ – then you spin the spinner and get a letter – say “F” – then hit the timer and you have a few seconds to come up with a word, find the letters and stack them to create a word. The winner is the person who has the longest word in the given time.Read more: “Word Has It!” Game Review

“Eye Found It” Game Review

Sunday is National Unplugging Day and one of the ways to go gadget free as a family is to stack up a bunch of board games and spend the day lazing about playing as a family. One of the games we’ve been loving recently is a Ravensburger game called I Found It. 

Eye Found It is a fantastic game!Read more: “Eye Found It” Game Review
