Putting The Pieces Together With The Ravensburger 3D Big Ben Jigsaw

As a family we are quite into puzzles especially in the jigsaw form. Whilst we are fairly of-fey with 2D puzzles we’ve only ever encountered 3D puzzles once before prior to receiving the ‘Ravensburger Big Ben 3D Jigsaw‘ that we were recently to sent to piece together and to review.


The Ravensburger Big Ben 3D Jigsaw Puzzle

The Ravensburger Big Ben 3D Jigsaw Puzzle features 216 individual pieces all of which are made from plastic and are fairly sturdy to work with. The puzzle measures 41cm in height when complete and is in actual fact a scale model of Big Ben.…

Cooperative Play With Pandemic

As a member of the ‘Blogger Board Game Club’ each month I am sent a game to play, review and to share with my readers. This month we were sent the international award-winning game ‘Pandemic’.


Pandemic – A Cooperative Game

Designed by Matt Leacock and published by Z-Man Games, Pandemic is a cooperative game which all players work to win or lose together, this is a rather new concept for our household as over the years we have grown accustomed to board games being a battle against one and other.

Pandemic is suited for two to four players aged eight years and over, each player takes on a specific role (either a dispatcher, medic, scientist, researcher, operations expert, contingency planner or quarantine specialist) each of which contributes to game play through special abilities and skills.…

Cleaner Carpets With The Shark Lift-Away Series

Those of you that know me well or read my blog regularly will no doubt know that I suffer with OCD. It’s not something which I talk about regularly but it’s a part of my life which I deal with on a daily basis both in and out of the house. As you can imagine I like to keep things fairly organised and clean even when I happen to have a fractured elbow and be wearing a sling, I’ll still push myself to vacuum, polish and generally spruce up the house otherwise I simply cannot rest or relax.

Smart Is Apparently The New Cool With The Project Mc2 Camryn Doll & Nail Polish Experiments Set

As I’ve said many times before in past posts, our little lady E is rather taken with the concept of cosmetics. Whether its bath products, makeup, nail varnish, jewellery, accessories or fashion, E seems to have creative vision and flair for style. As my husband and I have firmly established E is a girly girl, a diva through and through, god help us when she hits the teenage years as no doubt she will cost us a fortune in cosmetics!

As you can imagine E was therefore overjoyed when we were recently sent the ‘Project Mc2 Camryn Doll & Nail Polish Experiment‘ to review.…

Mixing Role Play With Water Play For Fantastic Fun With The Baby Born Rain Fun Shower

Now that our daughter E is four-years old I thought that I’d be well and truly done with the ‘baby days’. However, it seems our daughter E has become rather taken with babies of late, thankfully of the plastic variety either way our house has once again got a pram, a potty, nappies, a changing bag, bottles and all kinds of baby related paraphernalia all of which belong to E’s beloved dolls but seem to be taking up almost as much space as having a real life baby!


The Baby Born Rain Fun Shower

Earlier this week we were sent the ‘Baby Born Rain Fun Shower‘ to rate and review along with the ‘Baby Born Wonderland Fairy Rider Doll’.…
