Fast Paced Fun With Staccups

Prior to Christmas a colleague and good friend of mine recommend Staccups as a gift for my kids. At the time however, I’d already got my gifts sorted and stashed ready for the big day. I was there rather elated when were recently asked whether we’d be interested in reviewing the Staccups game.


Staccups (designed and created by University Games) is a fast-paced, fun, family game which is a  race against the clock, testing reaction times, hand-eye coordination and colour-ordering skills.

Suitable for two to four players, Staccups is recommended for players aged eight years and over. However, our little lady (who is currently only five years of age) rather enjoyed playing this game and even beat me in a few rounds.…

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.…

Taking A Dip With The Baby Born Little Sister Mermaid Doll

Disney has a lot to answer for as our daughter E is mad about anything mythical, whether it be fairies, unicorns or mermaids for that matter. E was therefore delighted to receive the ‘Baby Born Little Sister Mermaid Doll’ from Zapf Creation to rate and review for my readers.


The Baby Born Little Sister Mermaid Doll

Being the typical ‘girly girl’, E enjoys spending time playing with her dolls, especially those which have special tricks such as crying, babbling, urinating or even better, swimming! The Baby Born Little Sister Mermaid doll does precisely this which makes for the ideal bath toy.…
