Rainy Day Fun With John Adams Games .....


The boys love spending time with both Jon and myself playing fun games, so when John Adams asked if we wanted to review some games for them I was more than happy to say yes!

Last week was a bit of a wash out, which meant it was the perfect time to stay inside and keep ourselves busy with some fab new games!



We were sent;
Mr Bucket,
Giggle Wiggle and Don't be a Donkey.
All 3 games are for 2 - 4 players.
Recommended age range of 4+.


Up first was Giggle Wiggle.

Aim of the game...

Be the first to place all your coloured balls onto Giggle Wiggle’s moving hands to become the champion of the game

The boys loved this game.
They thought it was hilarious trying to get their balls onto Giggle Wiggles hands as he danced around to Salsa music.

I've also been using it to help Ru sort his colours.
The game comes with four sets of different coloured balls and he really enjoys placing them in their different compartments.

The game requires 3 AA batteries that aren't included.
RRP £24.99



Up next was Don't Be a Donkey.

Aim of the game...

Players get to choose a card from their hand to pass onto the next player, then keep on swapping cards until someone gets a full house of matching donkey cards and shouts out ‘DONKEY’. 
Then it’s a race to grab one of the carrots on the table, but watch out as there are not enough carrots to go around, if you are too slow you must lift-up one of your donkey ears. 
Miss out three times and you get to wear the donkey nose completing your transformation into a donkey and losing the game.

This game took a little explaining for the twins to understand, but once they had watched Noah and myself have a few rounds they soon cottoned on.
This is a great game and something for all the family to enjoy.
The twins enjoyed being the donkey far more than they should have and I'm sure they lost on purpose.
It has been a great game for Jon, myself and Noah to play on our Friday games nights.

The game comes with everything you need.
4 Headbands,
4 sets of ears, 
3 carrots,
a set of Donkey playing cards and one Donkey snout.
RRP £24.99



Last but not least Mr Bucket.....

Aim of the game....

As Mr. Bucket moves and waves his arms, he likes to pop balls out his mouth. 
Grab a shovel and chase Mr. Bucket, scooping up and returning all three of your coloured balls. 
Be quick as he pops out balls almost as fast as you can drop them in! 
When all the balls have been dropped in, lift Mr. Bucket by the handle to win the game!

Rupert has never really been a big fan of games, as he can't quite sit still enough so this game is perfect for him.
He could run around putting the balls into Mr Bucket all day quite happily.
The twins got a bit fed up with it, as they couldn't quite manage to get all their balls in before he spat them back out again.
So, so far Mr Bucket is the remaining champion on Mr Bucket.
Again this is another game that Ru likes to sort out the colours with.

Mr Bucket comes unassembled in the box but literally takes 5 minutes for you to click him all together.
The first time you get him out you have to stick on his eyes.
He requires 3 AA batteries which aren't included.

It's the perfect game for preschoolers like Ru.
RRP £24.99.

I'm pretty excited that I've been invited along to take part in the semi finals over in Orpington this coming Friday.

Review || Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture

So its my cousins wedding this weekend and I'm having to make my legs suitable for public viewing! Usually my legs are hidden and the only leg skin that see the light of day are the bits that peak out behind the holes in my jeans.

I don't tend to get my legs out but when I do, I do like them to look good!
I'm pretty lazy when it comes to shaving my legs, and I will let them grow rather wildly if I have no reason to show them off! Obviously something Jon loves hates with a passion!
I was very kindly sent Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture , to try! The fact its an all in one really appealed to me, because.... I am..... a lazy shaver!

Potty Training Academy // Sticker Chart.

Ru has taken to potty training like a pro! He's had hardly any accidents and is no longer using nappies during the day.

I started him off in Bambino Mio training pants but after a day of a couple accidents he started taking himself to the toilet without any prompt from me.

I introduced him to his Potty Training Academy sticker chart on day one and he was very keen to fill it up, so even when he didn't need the loo, he would try and squeeze something out just to get a sticker.

We used both a toddler loo seat and the carry me potty, but he prefers to do his wee's just like his brothers...standing up. He sings putting out the fiiiire when he's weeing (god knows where he got that from! lol.) 

The first real test was sending him to nursery and seeing if he returned with a bag full of wet pants. I made sure the washing machine was free for his return but when he came home wearing the same outfit that he went in in was such a win.

The sticker chart was a great help with gett…
