Glam Goo Deluxe Slime Pack Review

Eva loved doing this Glam Goo Deluxe Slime Pack review with me this week! An ever-growing fan of Glam Goo, Eva couldn’t wait to get her hands on this fab pack with Glitter Purse & Double Ring! She loved the Confetti Pack & the Fantasy pack, so no surprise she was so excited with Glam Goo Deluxe Slime Pack too. Each Glam Goo pack comes with fab accessories to fill with slime along with sparkles & colours to mix up your slime & make it fashionable!

Glam Goo Deluxe Slime Pack Review

The Glam Goo Deluxe Slime Pack comes with a Glitter Purse storage case for your Glam Goo slime creations. The Purse is lockable by turning the pink handle on top and has 9 sections to fill with your Glam Goo. The purse also comes with a pink lid to cover the storage section keeping your slime fresh.

The pack contains a large pot of Glam Goo which is enough to make several different creations. This deluxe pack comes with Cloud Crunch, Daydreams & Unicorn Tears sparkles. It also comes with Electric Blue & Pinky Promise sparkle colours, Violent Vibes scent & a mixing spoon.

Cotton Candy Crunch

Glam Goo starts off rather sticky but the more you work it the easier it gets & turns from clear to white. We divided the large pot of Glam Goo into several portions and following the instruction included created 4 different Glam Goo looks.

Pinky Promise & Daydreams

First of all, we started with Cotton Candy Crunch. This Consists of Pinky Promise, Daydreams & Cloud Crunch. This mixture turns into a pink sparkly creation!

Purple Rain

Next, we tried out Purple Rain which consists of Pinky Promise, Electric Blue, Violet Vibes & Unicorn Tears! This is definitely my favourite creation with this pack haha! I caught this picture below & love how you can see the individual colours mixing to slowly create a purple colour.

Mixing Purple Rain - Glam Goo Deluxe

Eva loved how Purple Rain turned out too and enjoyed the violet Vibes scent. Adding scent makes your Glam Goo a little sticky but as with when you start! Working the slime for a few minutes returns it back to a stretchy slimy consistency.

Halo It’s Me

Halo It’s Me was next on the list so Eva set to work mixing Daydreams, Unicorn Tears & Cloud Crunch into the clear slime. Eva loved this sparkly creation and is one of her favourites. She really enjoyed helping take photo’s for this Glam Goo Deluxe Slime Pack Review too and took this fab one below.

Halo It's Me

She liked this mix so much with all the different coloured sparkles. Eva decided to fill up the double ring some Halo it’s me and of course, couldn’t wait to pose for a photo. Being able to fill up fun fashion accessories like this make Glam Goo that little bit more fun! You can see Eva genuinely enjoys these fun slime packs in photo’s too.

Glam Goo Double Ring

Shimmer Lake

Once she finally stopped posing, Eva got back to creating Shimmer Lake which consists of Electric Blue, Daydreams & Violet Vibes. I love the Electric Blue, it is such a lovely, vibrant shade!

Eva really enjoyed creating so many different versions of the Glam Goo slime & loved filling up the Double ring & Storage Purse. This fab pack kept her entertained for almost 2 hours straight. This is the perfect gift for any slime/goo fan out there!

We also mixed up our own creations at the end using leftover ingredients from this kit, the Confetti Pack & Fantasy pack, eventually filling the purse! Having tried out 3 different packs we love Glam Goo products, they are so much fun!

Glam Goo Confetti Accessories Pack

This fun-filled pack comes with 2 accessories, a bow bracelet & a bunny keychain to fill with slime when you are done mixing in different ingredients. This pack comes with fluffy slime, a peach scent, 2 colours (Pink & Yellow), colourful confetti & balls to mix in with your gooey slime!

Gooey Fun!

Slime

Eva really enjoyed playing with the fluffy slime. We split the slime into 2 halves so Eva could try 2 different types. She decided to start off adding in some of the colourful balls to her slime. Next, she added some pink colouring, her favourite colour!

Pink Glam Goo

Once she had added in the powder, Eva decided to add some colourful confetti.

Confetti Glam Goo

Having decided she was going to put the pink slime in the bunny keychain, Eva was pleased to fill up the bunny and still have some left over.

Yellow Bow Confetti Bracelet

With the second half of the fluffy slime, Eva decided she wanted to make a yellow bow confetti bracelet. She got to work adding the yellow powder and peach scent first.

It’s all about the colour with Eva so she decided to add the coloured balls in again for the second half.

Next, she added some more confetti, she had a slight confetti explosion but was happy with the end result.

Confetti Overload

After squeezing some of the yellow colourful gooey slime into the bow bracelet she had more left over again. She eventually mixed the two colours, keeping it in the handy pink storage pot and keeps both lots of slime in their accessories.

I’ve driven past Southend toy shop Argosy Toys AKA Toymaster since I was a child and always looked through the windows in awe! With its bright yellow front, you can’t miss this Southend toy shop. If you look a little closer you will a selection of all kinds of children’s toys. They also have an online store.

Southend Toy Shop Toymaster

I was shocked to find out Argosy Toys are a small independently run toy shop owned and run by Paul. Having worked there for close to 30 years is pretty impressive for any toy shop! It must be lovely for the locals growing up, recognising Paul behind the counter and going on to take their own children in to buy toys too.

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.

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.
