Airjitzu at Legoland Manchester

Today we went to the Ninjago Airjitzu event at Legoland Discovery Centre, Manchester. We go there all the time and you would think the kids would be getting fed up of it by now but actually there’s always something different to experience despite the fact that there is always the same warm welcome with the staff recognizing the children and… Read more →

Pink ChillFactor Drinks Bottle Review

We were sent this super cool drinks bottle to review this week My poor kids don’t get slushies when we go out to Legoland or ball pools because I can’t stand the effect of the ‘e’ numbers on my already feisty brood so this was their first experience of them. I made them with Fitzpatrick’s Blackcurrant and liquorice flavour cordial.… Read more →

Plasticine from Flair: Review

We received a wonderful cardboard box of goodies from Flair this week! The children were really excited because there were ‘Plasticine’ stickers on the outside of the box but I wouldn’t let them open it right away. It sat there on the shelf until I was ready to review it with them and that only added to their excitement. Here… Read more →

Review: Little Live Pets Butterfly

Imogen was sent a Little Live pets Butterfly for review recently, and she totally loved it! I’ve seen them on TV and never been that impressed, I mean what do they do? They don’t fly, I just couldn’t see what the play-value in them was! We got it out of the packet and popped it on the flower charger…and nothing… Read more →

BrainPOP: Review

You know I home educate, right? Well my methods have varied over the years from pretty structured to totally autonomous. We’ve had a tutor since I had Oona to take some pressure off me whilst giving me the reassurance that the bases are covered. Between tutor visits though, we have been pretty autonomous.  I offer the children lots and lots of… Read more →
