Benji My Best Friend from Animagic

Benji is a cute little toy dog, aimed at 3 year olds and over. He’s a sweet little interactive Scotty dog that performs a number of tricks for his mini owner. It’s much like having a real dog but not having to get up at the crack of dawn to take him out for a […]

Disney Princess Magic Wand Game

Disney Princess stuff always goes down a treat with little Fifi and Boy, they love it because they can really identify with the characters. When the Disney Princess Magic Wand Game came for review they were literally bouncing up and down on the spot in excitement. This is a board game which is slightly different […]


PlayPlax were without doubt, one of the best toys of my childhood. I have so many fond memories of hours spent sliding these little flat plastic squares together to create all manner of different shapes. In fact, they became such a feature of peoples childhoods and such a design classic that they actually have a […]

Zoob Junior

Zoob Junior appeared out of the blue and proved itself to be a miracle heaven sent. This kept my four year old and two year old entertained for several mornings during the school holidays and the amount of role playing and building that they did was remarkable. I am very impressed, so impressed that I […]

Duplo Disney Cars 2

My kids are extremely lucky to be part of the Disney Duplo Ambassador team. No, scrub that me and the husband are lucky as well! The other week we got a huge package which contained four boxes of Disney Cars 2 Duplo rather than bombarding the kids with the whole lot I decided to be […]

LEGO Pharaoh's Quest, Cursed Cobra Statue

Lego Pharaoh’s Quest is great stuff all round. I can’t help but hum “de-de-de-deeeeeh” under my breath while playing with it, but there’s more to it than an Indiana Jones wannabe. Our lad, whilst being a little too young at 4 to make it for himself, has played with this Lego set more than any […]

Gibsons My World, My Body

Under the new regieme in our household the children are not allowed to watch anywhere near as much television and I have to say that things have made a dramatic improvement. Toys are played with, books are read, communication happens, life is better all round. One of the things we have been enjoying are jigsaw […]

Ravenburger XXL Jigsaw

 No, not XXL as in floor puzzle, but XXL as in piece size! Whilst at the Christmas in July Show I was admiring Ravensburgers puzzles and bemoaning the fact that Small Boy was being outshined on the puzzle front by his little sister (nearly 4) and he wouldn’t do them anymore. I said it was because the pieces were […]

Fireman Sam Spin and Rescue Game

With the school holidays in full swing I was really grateful to receive Fireman Sam Spin and Rescue Game. This is a brilliant pre-schooler game which has kept my kids amused for ages. Basically you spin Fireman Sam around and see where he stops. The kids then have to collect cards based on where he […]


DINO BITE is the new game from Drummond Park, creators of Pig Goes Pop, and it WILL be a hit! We were sent a DINO BITE game to try out and had an excellent time. DINO BITE is easy to set up, basically it’s just two bits, clip the Dino to the base (and put in […]
