Scalextric Touring Car Battle Set Review

Scalextric has been and still is a popular gift with children and adults alike! There is something about a Scalextric that appeals to everyone. I never owned a Scalextric set when I was younger, I think my brother did but I don’t recall playing with it. When I was offered the opportunity to review one, I was a little bit excited. The big kid inside. I also knew that my husband and my eldest would have so much fun with it. The simplicity of Scalextric is part of its enduring appeal. The general concept is electrically powered scale-model cars race around a slotted track. The cars are operated by a simple hand-controller. The track slots together easily which is handy when you have an impatient child who cant wait to play. The Scalextric we were sent is the Scalextric Touring Car Battle Set. It is very cool. The box contains a 15V transformer, a lap counter,… View Post

Fabulous Christmas Hampers from Prestige Hampers

Christmas is a time for good food, fine wine and nice treats. Hamper’s are a great way of giving all of that as a gift. We all have someone we struggle to buy for, someone who seems to have everything. You can end up spending hours walking around the shops and still not finding something suitable. Hampers are a great gift and receiving one can feel really indulgent since it’s not something you usually buy for yourself. Prestige Hampers have an amazing choice of luxury hampers. We have recently been sent the Fabulous Christmas hamper from Prestige Hampers. The hamper came in this lovely wicker box, which can of course be reused. I am a fan of anything you can use again. The hamper contains so many yummy goodies and is the perfect hamper for one person. There’s a fabulous selection of sweet and savoury items including biscuits, crackers, crisps,… View Post

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul – Review

Diary of a Wimpy Kid : The Long Haul DVD from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment was released on the 23rd October 2017. The Diary of a Wimpy Kid : The Long Haul is such a funny film. I haven’t read any of the books or seen the previous films, so I didn’t really know what to expect. It is one of the funniest films I have seen in a while. I had tears coming down my face at one point as I laughed that much. As a heads up, most of the laughs are gross-out humour involving pee, poop, vomit, farting, as well as some insulting language (“dork,” “fat,” “stupid,” etc.) The Plot The film begins at an all-you-can-eat restaurant, where Greg accidentally finds a dirty diaper in the soft play area ball pit. Greg starts screaming about the diaper and people videotape him in action. Somehow, the video of Greg goes… View Post

Gassy The Cow – Review and Giveaway

Will she moo or will she poo? Gassy The Cow is a fun game by Drumond Park. If you have little one’s you will no doubt have seen it advertised on television. I think it is safe to say it is going to one of the most wanted games this year. Gassy The Cow is about a cow that umm well wee’s, poo’s and trumps a lot. Because of this I can see the appeal to children. Playing Gassy The Cow is super easy to play and to understand, which I really like about the game. To play the game players take it in turns spinning the spinner. If the colour lands on the colour of their boots they have to walk up to Gassy and pull his tail. They then have to wait and see what happens. In the back leg there is a canister where you stack the little discs,… View Post

Styling Your Man With Jacamo

When it comes to clothes my husband is a creature of habit. He is predictable in what he wears and he isn’t what I would call stylish – sorry M if your reading this! He is the sort of man who just doesn’t go shopping, when he does, he spends ages deciding whether he wants something. Family normally buy him some clothes for Christmas, purely because he is hard to buy for. This is the only time his wardrobe gets an update. I had never heard of Jacamo before until they contacted me. They offer men’s clothing from big name brands such as Lambretta, French Connection and Flintoff by Jacamo to name but a few. This is definitely a website perfect for my husband. He can spend ages browsing the clothes and actually buy something he likes. Getting to style my husband is a rarity. I had a look around the… View Post
