My First Scalextric Review

We were chuffed to bits to be asked to try out the new My First Scalextric. For years and years I’ve always been a fan of Scalextric sets. They are great fun for all the family.

Baby girl is at that inquisitive stage and loves to explore. When she first saw the box she wanted to get in it! Then of course she decided to stand on the box, it will support the weight of a 20 month old!

The box is brightly coloured and is perfectly designed for preschoolers.

Geomag Magicube Review and Giveaway

Baby girl and I love to build things with her toys. We build towers, play with her stacking cups and even love to pile up her teddies! So when we were asked to review Geomag’s Magicubes it was an offer we couldn’t refuse. I’ve always had more of a scientific than an arty brain. In fact my whole family is inclined that way, with my sister being an engineer as well.

We love to find out how things work and this has been passed down to baby girl. I believe that they are never too young to begin STEM learning and these Magicube’s are perfect to support this.

The first set of Magicube’s we tried out were the Polar Animals set.

Top Tips for Upgrading your Phone

I always find upgrading my phone an exciting little job. Although I know others find it a daunting task. Nowadays most of us have mobile phones and many have theirs on some type of contract. It could be a pay as you go or a monthly contract. Either way it’s always worth having a look and see where you can save money. It could be that you have way too many minutes or texts that you don’t use each month or even data (if you are like me and use every bit of free wifi I can find!!) There is always a saving to be had.

Contact Numbers UK have asked me to come up with my best tips for phone upgrades and why it’s worth upgrading your phone for their #PhoneUpgradeTips campaign.

Mobile phone upgrade tips

So here are my Top Tips regarding phone upgrades, how to move all your existing stuff on your old phone over and why it’s worth upgrading in the first place.

Halloween is a time of celebration and superstition. It is thought to have originated from the Celtic festival of Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off roaming ghosts. it also marks the time of year between the end of harvest and the start of Winter.

Halloween Activities

  • Trick or Treating
  • Dressing up for costume parties
  • Carving pumpkins
  • Bonfires
  • Apple bobbing
  • Playing pranks
  • Visiting haunted attractions/houses
