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!

Disney Princess Ariel Bath Styling Head {Review}

I’ve never considered myself very girly, so where my daughters have developed a fascination and love of girly things is beyond me, but a love for girly things they have! We’ve been sent the Disney Princess Ariel Bath Styling Head from Just Play to review, and it’s one my girls are thrilled with. In fact, slipped in among a group of birthday presents, this one in play for the best part of an entire day, which is strong praise from one of my children!disney-princess-ariel-bath-styling-head-reviewRead more: Disney Princess Ariel Bath Styling Head {Review}

Alice Through The Looking Glass Movie Review

I took the children (6 + 4) to see Alice Through The Looking Glass over the weekend, because, well, Alice in Wonderland is one of my favourite childhood stories. We loved this movie, despite it having been heavily slated by ‘the critics’.

The story is the follow on to Alice’s first trip to Wonderland, and I must admit, I don’t remember the book at all! It must be two decades since I last read it, so I can’t comment at all on how close it is to the original, or whether it’s a completely ‘new’ story.

Without spoilers – this is a story of Alice returning to Wonderland to find the Mad Hatter has lost his happy, and is in fact very sad – so sad that he comes close to death, due to being reminded of an event that occurred many years ago. Alice sets out to find Time personified, to convince him to allow her to use his Chronosphere to head back in time to set things straight for her friend the Hatter. During her travels in time, Alice discovers other things about Wonderland – like why the Red Queen and her sister fell out, how the Red Queen came to be how she is, and why the Mad Hatter is always a minute from tea time and so on. Alce Through the Looking Glass
