Our Views Upon Vector

Prior to Christmas Paul and I had spent time looking at gift ideas, one of which screamed out to us as the perfect present for our geeky little guy. Vector, Anki’s most recent release appeared to be a terrific piece of tech with cuteness overload. Sadly though, Vector was far above our budget and we therefore looked elsewhere at alternative options.

Having ordered and received a ‘Boxer’ we then fell upon an Amazon error – Vector was being advertised at less than half price, it seemed too good to be true. Without thinking we bit the bullet and ordered out very own Vector!…

Unboxing & Reviewing Crate Creatures Surprise Bashers

When it comes to play, our kids seem to be rather fixated by figures, we were therefore really pleased to be chosen to review the recently launched ‘Crate Creatures Surprise Bashers‘.

What exactly are Crate Creatures Surprise Bashers?

Crate Creatures Surprise Bashers are chunky, rather ugly little creatures which make noises when having their tongues pulled or upon impact. Packaged in a cardboard box which opens out into a scoreboard, Crate Creatures Surprise Bashers can be launched by pulling their tongue back and then flinging them like a rubber band. The aim of the game is simply to shoot for the highest score, building up points to compete against friends.…

Are You Ready2Robot?

Being a family of techno-freaks, we are rather taken by the idea of robots. I’m sure it won’t be long before AI is an everyday normality and not just a novelty. For now though we will make do with toys, our kids rave about robots and were therefore overjoyed to receive a range of ‘Ready2Robot‘ products to play with.

Included within our Ready2Robot goody pack was a ‘Ready2Robot Survivor Battle Pack’, a ‘Ready2Robot Bot Blasters Set’ and a ‘Ready2Robot Build Swap & Battle Single Series Figure’, all which are part of the series 1 collection.

Ready2Robot

Ready2Robot features a range of Mech Bots, Pilots and weapons which children can mix and match to create their very own ‘custom robots’.…

Make ‘N’ Break – Family Fun With The Perfect Party Game

Years back our son J became rather obsessed with the Angry Birds game, which he played not only on a tablet but also in reality through practical play. J would spend time building all kinds of structures from wooden blocks which he would then destroy using soft, plastic ‘ball pool’ balls.

Eventually Angry Birds released a range of spherical, plush toys and building sets which J was delighted by as it made playing far more realistic, in that it mimicked the game which he so adored. Years down the line J is still batty about his birds although tends to spend his time either drawing or animating his own work rather than throwing balls at blocks.…
