Aquabeads Cars 3 Playset

The boys have all been Cars crazy at some point or another and Ru bear is still completely obsessed.
So when we were sent the Aquabeads - Cars 3 Playset they were all very impressed and couldn't wait to get started.

Amazingly they each picked a character without fighting.
We all thought Ru would want his favourite Lightening McQueen but he actually went for Jackson Storm.
Noah picked Mack, Alex picked Lightening and Oscar went for Cruz Ramirez.


Inside the box you have everything you need to make all four characters,

1 Table Tray,
1 Bead Palette,
2 Template Sheets which are printed on both sides,
1 Sprayer,
1 Bead Peeler,
Over 1000 Polygon Beads,  Jewelled Beads,
And A Set of Instructions.

Key Features;
Helps to develop hand-eye coordination and memory skills.
Just spray water and the beads stick together! 
No ironing required.



Once you've picked your character just slot the template on the underside of the table tray and get placing your beads.
Ru couldn't quite do it himself, so I gave him a helping hand and let him spray the beads at the end.
He loved watching the beads eventually turn into Jackson Storm.


The beads only take 10 minutes to dry before you can peel them away from the tray and then up 60 minutes to dry completely.
We left ours a little longer just to be on the safe side.

The twins decided to have a race doing theres.
Because Alex is left handed it was easy for them to sit together and place their beads down with out really knocking into each other.
I think Oscar was the winner in the end but I'm sure if you ask Alex he'd say he was the winner!


I thought Noah wouldn't want to have a go at making one but he really enjoyed putting together Mack and made sure he took his time to make sure it was right.
He was very happy with the end result and now wants to get more Aquabeads play-sets!


  • Not suitable for children under 3 years old.

You've Got A Friend In Me // Disney Store 30th Anniversary


A little while ago Disney asked us if we fancied joining in with the Disney Store's 30th Anniversary celebrations!

30 fabulous years of the Disney Store!!!


I was more than happy to say yes, I have been a Disney store lover ever since the first time I stepped inside the Croydon Store many many many years ago and have since passed the love on to all the boys.

We were asked to re-create a famous Disney scene from one of our very favourite films ... Toy Story!


The films have all been firm favourites in the Mini Beasts house, and have also been each of the boys first ever Disney film that they've watched.

Noah used to watch all 3 films constantly and then when the twins were old enough, they then went through the stage of watching them over and over again. Ru, well he still does.

One of Ru's first ever words was Buzz.
Thats how true a fan he really is.

I think I could probably recite all the films in my sleep.


The Scene we re-created was of Buzz and Woody side by side.
The twins loved trying to capture the scene and had great fun dressing up.
Lots of giggles were had.


I remember going to the cinema to see Toy Story with my brother and was so excited.
The excitement is brought back every time I sit down and watch it with the boys.

Toy Story is one of the only films I know that the boys will actually all sit down together and watch nicely. 
So when I need a bit of peace and quite I will stick that on and if by magic they all hush up and chill out.

I think I would be a little bit lost with out my secret magic power!
So I thank you Toy Story for all the joy you have bought to me and my family.


Unfortunately we don't have a Disney Store close to us and I nearly cried when the one in Croydon shut down when I was young, but I always enjoy dropping into the one in Oxford Street every time I'm in London.

The stores are like magic and the boys faces always light up when we step inside.


Do you have favourite memory from a Disney Film?
