Little Scribblers World Busy Bags


Today I want to share with you a company who make busy bags. Bags that are full of fun activities for children to help develop various areas of learning. They are compact, so suitable to carry around and can be used for an activity at home, eating out, visiting family - just about anywhere.

Children can have short attention spans. They are always seeking to learn, explore and make sense of whats around them. Whether you are looking for something to entertain your child, teach and develop specific skills or bring about a calm few minutes, these packs are a fantastic go to resource. 

With the hard work done for you, you can use them the minute they land through the door! 

Today I am sharing with you - Little Scribblers World.

Peppas Secret Suprize

Peppas Secret Suprize


Peppas Secret Suprize


It would be frightening if I found out how many Peppa Pig episodes are on in my household in a week. My boys are obsessed with Peppa right now. I feel likes its always on in the background and I've even sat watching them (often in a daze from the day I've just had) after the children have gone to bed.

A quick google search showed me that there have been 254 episodes created of Peppa Pig to date. This leads me to wonder why we only ever see the same few on repeat on Nick Jr Peppa? The Bike Ride, Pedro Losing his Glasses, Secret Club, Peace and Harmony, Black Berry Bush, Bing Bong Boo, GeeGee Leaving, School Roof, Garden Gnomes, Lucky Puddle Jumping Boots - HA! I could go on.... 

Out of all the children's program out there - Peppa is one I don't mind being on. 

Anyhow the purpose of me posting today is to share a cheeky reveal with you. 
We were contacted by Character Toys and asked to do a big reveal of a very exciting new toy that Peppa Pig fans are going to LOVE.

Peppa's Secret Suprize - Series 1, Party.

How many hours have your children sat with the ipad/phone in their hand watching blind bags being opened? The amount of times I have taken Neve to a toy shop for a special treat and all she has wanted has been blind bags and eggs! 

The once we took her to Toys R Us (still not over the fact that these have gone now by the way). with the intention to buy her her first bike. She wasn't interested at all and instead selected a 99p Frozen kite, which by the way was brilliant - 2 blind eggs and 2 blind bags. She was over the moon!


Learning and Exploring Through Play


So when we had the opportunity to take a closer look at this new toy - we jumped at the opportunity. Here is how we got on:


Each box has six hidden draws. The draws house five secret blind bags, fun stickers and an exclusive figure from the series in glittery party outfits. Children will be able to hunt for Peppa, George, Suzie, Rebecca and Zoe. 

Series one is launching in December in the UK with a yellow suprize box and a party theme. This will be swiftly followed by a new series in 2019 which will feature different coloured boxes, a brand new theme of figures and accessories to collect.

Neve absolutely loved this toy. Blind Bags still remain a firm favourite of hers and having so many to open and discover in each set was great! Shes already asked if she can do some more.

Each set will retail at a RRP of £9.99. You can see more by checking out - Character Toys.

We were sent the two boxes as seen above in order for us to be able to conduct the big reveal. All thoughts and opinions are 100% our own.

Aeroplane Runway DIY - Vehicle Activities for Kids


I am yet to come across a child who isn't fascinated by planes and helicopters. My boys are obsessed with them. We have to stop the moment we hear one and stand still looking up, until it's spotted and gone by. Today I am sharing with you a fabulous way to ignite a child's imagination and extend their play set ups by creating your very own run way for your planes. 

I am over the moon to have Sue Baxter joining us today. Sue has shared so many wonderful ideas and set ups with us over the last 12 months. She has been super quiet on here as of late as she has been setting up her very own Preschool Centre

Tonka Trucks Cement Mixer


Over the last few months, the twins have been crazy on anything on wheels. Helicopters, cars, trains and not forgetting their favourite - tractors. They all tick boxes for them and they spend hours and hours playing with them. 

I was over the moon when we were asked to review a truck from Tonka Toys. A brand based in America and founded in 1945. This isn't the first item I have owned by Tonka Toys and I was very pleased to see that the Cement Mixer that is the focus of today's review continues to be of fabulous quality, with lots of attentions to detail.
