Last year you may have remembered that I reviewed the Project Mc2 doll – Ember Evergreen. This year I’m happy to share with you another Project Mc2 doll – Camryn Coyle in celebrating British Science week. Plus at the end you have the chance to win her!
British Science week is a ten-day celebration from the 9th -18th March of science, technology, engineering and maths, featuring entertaining and engaging events and activities across the UK for people of all ages. You can take part in the week by organising an event. The British Science week organisation will help you plan by providing free activity and support resources. They welcome and support any type of organiser, from schools to community groups, and from parents to large organisations. Or you can take part by just popping along to a pre-existing event.
I love shopping haul challenges. When I was given the chance to head over to the PoundToy website with a £50 voucher to spend on their website I was eager to see what I could get for my money. I know the website is called PoundToy, but don’t let this confuse you. Of course some toys are £1 and even less, but most are over £1. The prices are still rock bottom though, and very competitive with high street and other online toy stores.
Plus most of the items are branded toys. If you are looking for birthday and Christmas gifts and are on a budget, this website is for you. They also have a great party supplies section – everyone in one place!
We worked with Wicked Uncle back in 2016 on a challenge post with them and it was such great fun! This year we are simply writing a review on a toy we have chosen to look at. Which happens to be a fantastic little wooden railway train set.
A little about Wicked Uncle
Wicked Uncle gave us the opportunity to select toys to review with a £40 voucher. I love how their site is divided into age categories plus boys and girls toys. Yes I know some people find it wrong to have boys and girls toys and they should be gender neutral or whatever, but I grew up with girls and boys toys and so did my generation and we are alright!
One of baby girl’s first phrases was “cup of tea?” So being asked to share our thoughts on the Mr Kipling Tea Set was perfect! I’m a huge fan of Mr Kipling’s cakes, French Fancies being my favourite although Cherry Bakewells come a close second. Mmmm shame I don’t have any in the kitchen cupboard at the moment!
Everyone adores Mr Kipling’s cakes! Featuring replicas of the much-loved cakes including French Fancies, Battenberg and Cherry Bakewells for arranging on the two-tiered cake stand. Each cake features a shaped bottom for children to locate the correct corresponding shape on the easily assembled cake stand – so not only is it a fantastic role play toy, it has shape-sorting fun too!
Ahh Frozen! Who doesn’t love the film? It’s on most days when my daughter is at her Grandma’s house! Baby girl absolutely loves it, much to my husband’s annoyance! She loves to dance and sing ( in toddler speak!) to it.
When we were challenged to build a snowman from Hallmark to celebrate the new Itty Bittys collection it was a little exciting! Hallmark have released a fantastic Frozen collection featuring Anna, Elsa, Olaf and Sven – all the fan favourites.
In our goody box from Hallmark was a whole host of delights. As well as the four Itty Bittys there was a couple of celebration cards – Frozen of course! a Frozen cupcake kit, and all the ingredients to make your very own snowman.
It’s that time of year again for Christmas Shopping. You may remember my Christmas guide from last year where I did a selection of items for babies and kids. This year as baby girl is older I have put together a kids gift guide for all ages of children. Some bits will be suitable for younger and some bits for older children.
I do hope you find something suitable for your children.
