Shaun the Sheep Movie

Shaun the Sheep Movie

What’s 85 minutes long and the least irritating thing Cbeebies Justin Fletcher has ever done? That’s right, it’s Shaun the Sheep Movie. Aardman’s latest follows the titular hero who first appeared on our screens in Wallace and Gromit’s A Close Shave way back in the 90’s and more recently has had his own CBBC show […]

Act now for an Amazon Prime Bargain

Act now for an Amazon Prime Bargain

In the UK the Amazon Prime service that Amazon provides is about to get a significant upgrade and a related price hike. Currently for £49 a year, Amazon Prime customers get free delivery. This leaves the UK lagging behind the US, where they get all sorts of nice extras wrapped up in  the price. All […]

U:Create Family pack (Raspberrry Pi)

U:Create Family pack (Raspberrry Pi)

It’s the Governments self proclaimed year of coding (even though a lot of bods a lot more technical than me wanted a year of programming instead). What better way to introduce your kids to it all with there very own computer that they can even “build” themselves in the form of a Raspberry Pi? Last […]

JBL Voyager BT Speaker

JBL Voyager BT Speaker

JBL have attempted to try something a bit different with the JBL Voyager. It’s circular, mains powered, has Bluetooth and a 3.5mm input but also has a rather clever pop out portable disk that functions independently of the main unit and can go anywhere with you. Clever eh? The clever continues with the overall design. […]

Air Total Home C89-MA-T Cylinder Vacuum Cleaner

I’m part of the Vax Voice team which means I get the chance to test out Vax products and provide a fair report back to you on them. A few months ago we tried their carpet cleaner and I have to say this has proved absolutely invaluable especially after a little boy sickness episode *ahem*. […]

The Philips Man Iron

Just before Christmas I was sent an email which offered to send me a pampering set in exchange for sending my husband an Iron which he was to test out. How could I refuse such an offer? Especially as I absolutely hate ironing and I am keen to train the man up as I seem […]

Tommee Tippee closer to nature ® Digital Video Monitor with Movement Sensor Pad

The Tommee Tippee closer to nature ® Digital Video Monitor with Movement Sensor Pad arrived at just the right time for us, with a new addition to the family on New Years Day, I for one didn’t fancy digging out our 5 year old Tomy analogue monitor. The cables are an unruly mess and the things have […]

Rastamouse Da Crucial Plan & Other Adventures

We were sent this DVD to watch by the fab BBC Shop which is chock full of loads of brilliant BBC products. Rastamouse is one of our favourite shoes on Cbeebies so we were thrilled! This DVD features 6 episodes of Rastamouse and song sing along songs. It’s the first time you have been able […]

The Clarity Digital Audio Monitor by Lindam

The Clarity Digital Audio Monitor by Lindam is a stylish baby monitor that the nice people at littlepumpkin.co.uk sent us to test. We’re now on our third baby and our original monitor we used for our first two (the eldest is going to turn 5 very soon) was just a bit knackered, so it was […]

Cars 2 on Disney Blu ray

Cars was unashamedly the story of Lightening McQueen but Cars 2 surreptitiously almost tells the story of his goofy sidekick, Tow Mata. Yes, I’m slow and didn’t pick up the pun during the first film. The animation is up to Pixar’s usual standard but the racing is really a subplot in this story, a bit odd given […]
