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…)

“Don’t Be A Donkey” Family Game Review

We love playing games as a family; its nice to take some time out from rushing about and just sit down for some quality time together. When we were sent the game “Don’t be a Donkey” to try out recently, the kids couldn’t wait to play it.

There are two ways to play this game – if there are only 2 players the game is essentially snap. For 3-4 players, the game involves passing on a card to the next player until one player has a set of 4 matching cards. In either game, as soon as a match is made the player shouts Donkey and everyone has to grab a carrot as quick as they can – but of course there aren’t enough for everyone so the player who doesn’t get a carrot loses that round.

Photo gifts for all the family with Bags of Love

I love personalised gifts; they are unique and thoughtful. They are especially great when you have kids, as photos of your precious offspring make perfect gifts for all the family.  However, there’s only so many mugs you can give – don’t get me wrong, I love photo mugs – but I don’t think the grandparents would like to receive one every single year.

Bags of Love have loads of great photo gift ideas – including mugs – and they very kindly sent us a personalised wall clock featuring a photo of our choice. (more…)
