We recently headed to The National Sea Life Centre in Bimingham for their Disney Pixar Finding Dory event which see's special activities available for visitors. Visitors to Sea Life this Summer can find out all about Blue Tangs and Clownfish just like Dory and Nemo. There is an interactive trail around the centre where you will discover facts about the real life versions of the movies most loveable characters.
The summer holidays are flying by and you may be panicking about what you have left to buy before the new academic year starts. Whether you are a parent with kids going back to school/university or a teacher preparing to return to work, there will be things you need to buy to make life that little bit easier. Paperchase is my favourite shop, the majority of my desk accessories are from there and they currently have lots of great back to school products for people of all ages. They have sent me a range of items to try out and let you know what I think;
Although we have somehow still not seen Finding Dory, which is on the Summer holiday bucket list, the kids are all caught up in the hype and of course know Dory from the Finding Nemo film, which we have seen about 50 million times. I was growing up when Finding Nemo came out so I do have a huge soft spot for cute little Nemo and the super forgetful Dory and I am probably as excited, if not more, than the kids. If it is anything like Finding Nemo, it will be a well loved movie in our house.
We were sent the Bob The Builder remote controlled R/C Super Scoop from Fisher Price to review. It has four remote controlled actions, drive forward, turn, Dig and Scoop Stand. The scoop stand is hilarious, it is the digger equivalent to a handstand. Everytime it makes Zach panic and think he has broken it, and his face is a picture. I am so pleased I managed to capture it for our video (below). As well as being able to move around, the R/C Super Scoop talks and plays the Bob the Builder theme tune, which Zach loves to dance along to.
Last month we were sent the AIRSTORM Z-Tek Bow and Firetek Rocket and we were so excited to use them. On of our favourite things to do on a sunny day is head to the park or our local field with some fun outdoor toys.
I was personally excited to try out the Z-Tek Bow, I would love to have a go at real archery one day! Both toys are aimed at children 8+ so they were both used with adult supervision and the kids did awesome considering as they were quite difficult for them to use.
Peppa Pig has been a popular figure in my house since 2011. Gracie loved Peppa as soon as she could understand what was on the television and I even have a cute video I found recently of Gracie at around 20 months singing her own version of the theme song (cutest video ever). Now Elsie is almost 2 and is probably Peppa's biggest fan, she has even mimicked the temper tantrums like her idol (not so cute). So basically I have a house full of little Peppa fans and so all three of them were happy to be sent the Peppa Pig Enchanted Castle Playset to review.
Every shop you go in, there are aisles packed with back to school essentials including stationery. Which brings me to Gracie's favourite stationery store, Smiggle. I first found Smiggle when invited to the opening of their Birmingham Bullring store and stocked up on lots of great stocking fillers for the kids. Since then whenever we travel to the Bullring, we have to go and have a look inside. Just a few weeks ago, they opened up a store in Coventry and so we have a great excuse to visit more often and just in time to stock up the school supplies!
