  • Med Paint By Numbers Artist Set Review

    By on November 19, 2011
    I have been sharing the toy love around a bit this year. The Med Paint by numbers set was too intricate for my kids. The Grenade is hyper mobile and would not have the finger strength to be able to handle the detail, I therefore persuaded my friend, who had a 9 year old daughter to pick up the mantle. […]

  • Real Construction Deluxe Starter Set Review

    By on November 18, 2011
    This is a brilliant toy. When I opened the Toys R Us box and I saw this toy, I was filled with dread because I thought it was going to be balsa wood. My instant reaction was mess and cut fingers so you can imagine my delight and discovered that it was plastic tools and this floppy, polystyrene type, fake […]

  • Star Wars Ultimate FX Light Sabre Review

    By on November 17, 2011
    This is a truly awesome toy!! The young Jedi Knight The Grenade and his chum, The Dark Sith Lord Maximus loved it. It’s light and easy to handle but has the length and weight enough to feel authentic. The blade lights up and when you move it around it makes the same sound as the light sabres in the Star […]

  • Triangular Crayon 24 Piece Set Review

    By on November 16, 2011
    This is a great set of crayons. They come in a very handy rigid plastic box with a great range of colours. The crayons are laid out well and the they are easy to grip and use. The plastic case is a very sensible way of containing and storing the crayons and although we have had the set for some […]

  • NERF BARRICADE RV-10 Review

    By on November 16, 2011
    The Grenade is a massive NERF gun fan. Should I be worried? I did manage to keep ‘gun’ out of his vocabulary until he was about 4 years old. Since the age of 6 he began his ‘I love soldiers and battle phase’ moving on from the very obsessive dinosaur phase that covered the years from 3 – 6. As […]

  • Galt Magic Science Kit Review

    By on November 15, 2011
    If you can follow a recipe then the Galt Magic Science Kit is a great purchase. Unfortunately, I am not so great at following recipes so this is like pulling teeth for me. My kiddiestinkers are aged 8 and aged 3 so they absolutely need to be supervised through this activity. As much as I found it fairly arduous going […]

  • Nerf Vortex Vigilon

    By on November 14, 2011
    Nerf Vortex Vigilon Review As with all things Nerf, this comes well pckaged and makes you really want to get the box open and get firing! Once you get the handgun out of the box it doesn’t disapoint. A good size for children and chunky, funky and bright, it feels good and looks good. The Vortex system uses a new […]

  • Badge It! Review

    By on November 14, 2011
    I have to admit that when I saw this I thought it was going to be rubbish! I have been putting off the review because I was thinking what is the point. Anyway, the time felt right so we embarked upon it. It is in one of those toys that you need to have a little look at it before […]

  • Chunky Puzzle Assortment Review

    By on November 13, 2011
    The Chunky Puzzle Assortment is a great jigsaw and is therfore, easy to assemble! It was no surprise that the Boys loved the Farm and Digger puzzles, while the Girls tended to avoid the Diggers and go for the Farm. The puzzles were easy enough to build as they all have a matching picture that the pieces are put into, […]
