Halloween Box From My Pocket Money Toys

We received this months Halloween Box to review and couldn’t wait to check it out! The girls opened their box to find a Bouncy Eyeballs Kit, Soft Cuddly Bat, Stretchy Skeleton, Funny Eye Glasses & Glow in the dark Slime. There is also a colouring sheet, My Pocket Money Toys Stamp Book, stamp book stickers, chocolate ghost lolly & sweets. That’s a great selection for any child at Halloween!

 

Soft Cuddly Bat

Izzy of course had to have the Bat & Stretchy Skeleton, they are keeping her rather amused with one flying across the room & the other sticking & hanging from the walls and ceiling haha! Izzy decided the Colouring Sheet was also hers.

Halloween Colouring Sheet

Eva loved the Funny Eye Glasses and has added them to her dressing up collection. The Glow in the dark Slime caught Eva’s attention too. As it comes with a glow in the dark bracelet to wear too Eva couldn’t wait to get it open. The Bouncy Eyeball Kit is something she is really looking forward to making this week to scare her friend for Halloween haha!

Subscriptions

In each subscription box from My Pocket Money Toys you will find a Stamp Book and Stamps, collect 10 & you get a free toy! I love this idea and My Pocket Money Toys Subscription boxes, they really are great fun & a lovely surprise when they arrive for the kids. Whilst prices do vary depending which subscription you choose starting at £37.80 – £43.20 for a 3 month subscription. I think they are definitely worth it considering how much you get in each box.

What do you think of the Halloween Box from My Pocket Money Toys? Do you like the sound of their Toy Subscription service too?

5 Christmas Gifts Under £5 – #SDFiverChallenge

I’ve been looking at 5 Christmas Gifts under £5 from Sports Direct and ordered some great gifts for the girls. It can be tough at Christmas affording presents for everyone. Sports Direct want to make it easier to find gifts that cost less but are still good quality so I’ve picked out 5 gifts under £5 to take a closer look at. I’ve already shared some fab gift guides to help my readers this Christmas, here’s some bargain gifts too!

5 Christmas Gifts Under £5

#SDFiverChallenge

Sports Direct have definitely made that easier this year with their fab range of gifts £5 and under. I had expected to struggle to find a gift I thought the girls would both enjoy & would last more than 2 minutes. Surprisingly I managed to find 5 Christmas gifts £5 and under for the #SDFiverChallenge that I know my girls would enjoy and seem pretty good value too!

5 Christmas Gifts Under £5

Amigami

Amigami Large Figure – £5

The Amigami Large Figure is suitable for 6+ and is a great find for Eva. These kinds of gifts are great for creative kids with up to 500+ combinations available. The kit comes with a plastic AmiGami figure, 25 AmiGami paper parts, 45 stickers, 3 marker pens & 7 pins and caps. This seems fairly reasonable for £5 and will no doubt keep Eva busy for hours! She loves any chance to get creative & will love that her figure is pink.

 

Disney Princess 3 pack Wooden Puzzles & Storage box

Disney Princess Three Pack Wood Puzzles – £5

Wooden puzzles make great gifts and I found this Disney Three Pack of  24 piece wooden puzzles suitable for 3+ for just £5. The puzzles also come with a wooden box container to store them in too, bonus! With Izzy’s 3 favourite princesses, Cinderella, Belle & Rapunzel she is bound to love them. The quality of the wood is pretty good too so I can see the puzzles lasting a while!

Disney Princess Pop Up Game

 

Disney Princess Pop Up Game – £4.99

I remember playing pop up games as a child and really enjoying them & knew the girls would love this Disney Princess Pop Up Game. A great 2-4 player game for 4+ everyone can play together is always a great gift at Christmas. This Disney Princess Pop Up game seems fairly sturdy and I can see us playing regularly.

 

Monkey Tree Game

Monkey Tree Game – £4

Monkey Tree is another game I remember playing as a child. Carefully remove sticks and hope you don’t make the monkeys tumble! This is another 2-4 player game perfect for kids and seems just as good as any other version I’ve come across. Definitely a bargain at £4.

 

Crayola Disney Princess 2 colouring pages

Crayola Giant Princess Colouring Pages – £3

I thought these 20 Crayola Giant Disney Princess Colouring Pages were great for £3. The girls will love colouring them in & putting them up on their bedroom wall.

 

 

Overall I think Sports Direct has done pretty well with their Christmas gifts for £5 (and under!) and will probably be having another look to see what else I can put away for Christmas haha! Whilst I only really have a few people I buy gifts for the range of gifts at Sports Direct is great. There is something there for everyone!

Lucy Locket’s Wooden Fairytale Tea Set Inspiring Imaginations

We received an absolutely gorgeous Wooden Fairytale Tea Set to review from Lucy Locket. The tea set includes 12 pieces, 2 are gorgeous glittery cakes! I opened the outer packaging & the pink tissue paper wrapped around the box peaked Izzy’s interested immediately. Izzy was so excited when I told her she could open it.

Lucy Locket Wooden Fairytale Ta Set

Izzy unwrapped the wooden tea set, each piece carefully wrapped in paper to keep it safe. Each piece is carefully hand painted with beautiful fairies, magical creatures & flowers with a touch of glitter. I absolutely love the designs, especially the tray and Teapot!

The Wooden Fairytale Tea Set includes:Wooden Fairytale Tea set

  • 1 x Tea tray
  • 2 x Cups
  • 2 x Saucers
  • 1x Teapot
  • 1 x Teapot lid
  • 1x Milk jug
  • 2 x Tea spoons
  • 2 x Glittery cakes

 

 

Wooden Fairytale Teapot

After unwrapping all the pieces, Izzy got to work setting up the tea set, placing cups on saucers etc. Even Izzy pointed out the beautiful fairy designs and ‘sparkle’ as she busied herself. A cup of tea was poured for me & a cup of coffee for her daddy whilst keeping the cake closely guarded next to her haha!

Tea set

Izzy loves playing with the tea set and spends a good half an hour repeatedly pouring teas & coffees whilst explaining what she is doing. Eva & Izzy both enjoy having tea parties together so Izzy couldn’t wait for Eva to come home & play too.

When Eva got home both girls decided they needed to dress up as princesses & have a tea party. They both took turns pouring tea & milk & then stirring their cups of tea, happily talking as they went. Eva told anyone and everyone all about the Fairytale Tea Set the next day!

I am really impressed with the quality of the tea set, the wood is thick & strong and so beautifully decorated that any little one would love this Fairytale Tea Set.

At just £24 with free post & packaging (on orders over £20) this gorgeous Wooden Fairytale Tea Set would make the perfect gift! Lucy Locket offer a range of stunning dress up costumes and wooden toys. Perfect for encouraging kids to use their imaginations through pretend play.
