Disney Emoji Series 2 Review

We were recently sent some Disney Emoji toys to review. Series 2 is out now and includes popular Disney and Pixar characters from the Disney Emoji Blitz smart phone game.

You can watch Izzy and Clara open their new toys on our YouTube channel!

We were sent one each of the latest series 2 range:

The smallest pocket money pack at rrp £2.99 includes 2 surprise emojis – we opened the Beast and a gold coloured Moana (although Izzy did think this was Ariel at first as they do look similar in gold emoji form!) The gold ones are rare compared to the other emoji collectables and for some reason Izzy and Clara are both obsessed with getting rare ones whenever they open any surprise boxes/blind bags, even though I’m not quite sure they understand what it means! The bubble pack also doubles as a mini display case for the emojis and multiple ones can be stacked together.

This pack (rrp £5.99) includes 5 emojis all together – including 1 surprise one. The pack we were sent came with Walle, a Minnie Mouse bow, Olaf and Belle – plus a super squishy surprise Mickey Mouse glove.

This collectable tin, at rrp £9.99, is a great idea as it’s somewhere simple and compact to store all the mini emoji figures. The top is designed to look like a mobile phone screen and the tin has pictures of different characters on. It also comes with 2 emojis – we got Tinkerbell and Chip.

The Chatties, rrp £9.99, are super cute. They come in 4 different characters and each have 10 sounds. Clara loves Nemo and can be heard on the vlog talking about how she was called Nemo before she was born, when we used that as a nickname for my bump! This was definitely Clara’s favourite of all the Emoji toys and she claimed it for herself straight away.

There are two different Swapsies – Belle and Minnie Mouse. Each cushion-like plush comes with different facial expressions which attach with velcro and allow you to create your own emojis. There’s even a little pocket at the back to store all the loose pieces so you don’t lose them. Isabel loves the Belle one and couldn’t wait to show her friend when she came for a sleepover!

 As you can see from our vlog, the girls loved opening their new toys, especially finding out which surprise emojis they had got. They love anything that has that surprise element and the Chatbubble pack is good as a pocket money collectable. Thanks to Vivid and Norton & Co for the chance to review the Disney Emoji range.

Disney Emoji Series 2 are available to buy now, with Series 3 coming later in the year.

Our new addition to the family

So I’ve been very quiet on the blog and social media lately. And that’s because I’ve spent the majority of the last few months feeling exhausted and always within grabbing distance of the sick bucket. But if ever there is an occasion where 24/7 vomming is a good thing, this is it.

Yep, I’m growing a human. A new addition which will make us a family of five. It’s been a rough start to an otherwise very exciting time of our lives, but I’m over the worst of the sickness now (touch wood) and feeling so much better so this is my first blog post in around 3 months!


Happy 2018!

Well we are a couple of weeks in to 2018, and how many New Year’s Resolutions have you broken already? I’ve set several ‘resolutions’ for the year, including getting more sleep and moving more (the FitBit I got for Christmas will help with monitoring those goals), as well as a list of things that I’m planning on doing this year, or would like to do. Such as going to see Wicked at the theatre (for the 3rd time), building a Lego Marvel Helicarrier (already started), doing the Highway Rat trail with the kids at Whinlatter (we did this last weekend) and writing a book. So a mix of things that I can quite easily achieve and some slightly more ambitious projects! To be fair writing a book is on my list every year, so I’m not holding out much hope.


Festive Fun with Room to Grow

It’s two weeks to go until the big day and there is lots of festive fun to be had. We were sent a 12 Days of Christmas Advent Calendar from Room to Grow Beds and we’ve had fun opening the gifts and activities included.

The chocolates and candy canes were a big hit with the kids (Clara is developing quite the candy cane addiction!) while I’m looking forward to trying out the deliciously Christmas-scented bath bomb – because of course it’s important to take some time out from all that busy festive prep and just… relax. And I’m sure I’ll get time to do that at some point. Maybe mid-January, but I will make the time eventually I’m sure! (more…)

Disney Princess Itty Bittys from Hallmark

The girls (and I) love anything and everything Disney – in fact we’ve just got back from a few days at Disneyland Paris. Izzy and Clara especially love everything about the Princesses – from the dresses and tiaras to the dancing and adventures – so they were really pleased to be sent some of the new Disney Princess Itty Bitty range to review!

We were kindly sent six new Itty Bittys by Hallmark – Rapunzel, Aurora, Tinkerbell, Ariel, Belle and the Beast. The cute collectibles make perfect stocking fillers, for Disney fans of any age. There’s also a range of Frozen characters available – including Anna, Elsa, Olaf and Sven – as well as Superheroes from both the DC and Marvel franchises, and a huge range of Star Wars Itty Bittys. Izzy and Clara reviewed the Star Wars collection earlier this year – you can read our review here, or better yet watch the video they made, they really made me laugh with this one! (more…)
