Go, Go Power Rangers // Fisher-Price Imaginext Power Rangers Morphin Megazord

The twins are massive Power Ranger fans, and often dress up as their favourite Red Ranger.
I remember watching it as a child and always wanting to be the Pink Ranger, so its quite nice to see them enjoying something I used to enjoy.
We all enjoy watching some of the old school episodes on Netflix's.

When asked if we wanted to review the brand new imagined Morphin Megazord playset, I knew they would think Christmas had come early!


They play-set comes with the Red Ranger and the Black Ranger, I had a dreaded feeling they're would be massive arguments who got the red one, but that hasn't happened and they're both pretty happy to take it in turns being the red ranger.


Key Features;

    4 activation Power Pads let little ones control the action
·         Turn Power Pad on left shoulder for awesome transformation: chest opens, eyes light up, and cannon pops out!
·         Turn another Power Pad in chest to fire Power Coins
·         Turn 3rd Power Pad above left knee to raise projectile launcher and push button to fire
·         Turn 4th Power Pad above right knee to activate chomping action
·         Back of playset features jail, meeting area, elevator and more  with multiple levels and platforms for added play
·         Figure fits in back of Megazords head
·         Includes Morphin Megazord, Red and Black Power Rangers figures, 6 Power Coins and 7 Power Missiles


The boys have endless fun playing with the Megazord, I've lost count of the times I've been shot by a missile.
They bring him down to watch Power Rangers with them and then try to act out the scenes with the play set.

I have been told, that this is the best toy ever!


I love all the detail on the Megazord, and I can that tell this toy won't break easily, It's been twin tested!.
It's totally worth the higher price tag, as this is a toy that will be played with daily for a long time to come.
I can't see the twins getting bored of it anytime soon.


Available from Argos for £49.99*
suitable for ages 3 and up.

Nintendo Plush // Mario

We are all massive Nintendo fans and both Jon and I grew up playing the SNES and NES, which we still play on and we also are both pretty addicted to our DS's.

Noah is our new Nintendo geek and is dropping daily hints that he wants to get the new Nintendo Switch!
Jon is also pretty eager to add it to his Nintendo collection.

So when I was asked if I wanted to do a mini review on the brand new Nintendo plushes from Jakks  I jumped at the chance.


Jakks do a whole range of the Nintendo plushes including Mario, Luigi, Yoshi and Princess Peach.
They are all rather cute and great for kids and collectors alike.
Super soft and would make ideal presents.

Noah was over the moon with his Mario, and as soon as he was out the packaging he ran into his room to hide it from the others!

I managed to sneak him away for Mario to have a little photoshoot / a trip down memory lane with all our old school consoles.


The plushes cost £9.99 and you can find them over on amazon.

The release of these brand new plushes ties in very nicely with the launch of the Nintendo Switch, which is out now!




VR Insane Pop 360

A new British brand, VR Insane™, have developed an amazing new virtual reality (VR) headset designed for kids and adults alike.

The POP360 VR headset is ultra-comfortable, lightweight (only 200g) and highly portable.  Made from a soft silicon rubber (similar to the feel of a snorkel mask), it collapses down to only 40mm, enabling compact storage inside the included hard-shell travel case.

VR Insane™ also offer 2 free apps with the POP360.  Available for iOS (Apple) and Android devices, POP360 owners can download the VR Insane™ app and VR Insane™ Kids app by scanning the QR code supplied with the headset.


Richard , Director at VR Insane™ commented “We’ve spent a lot of time and effort developing the right headset and app bundle for the market; we see our product as an easy, family-friendly introduction to the world of virtual reality.  
Our apps offer a library of what we believe to be the best VR videos out there and provide users with quick and immersive light entertainment.”
Regarding the recent release of the VR Insane™ Kids app, added “We have seen the enthusiasm kids have for VR.  

They love jumping into the Jungle Book or surrounding themselves in a world of virtual dinosaurs. 
It was natural for us to develop a dedicated app for kids to enjoy.”




Suitable for smartphones with a 4.5”-6” screen size, the POP360 has a top-mounted touchscreen button (Google Cardboard II compatible) for interacting with your content. This means you have control (play/pause etc) over your videos and interactivity (shoot/move) with your games, without the need to take off your headset. 
With a wide 96 field-of-view and suitable for use with glasses, the POP360 is available now from a variety of global retailers and www.vrinsane.com for £19.99.


Noah has been begging me to get him a VR headset, and I have always said no as I thought they were over priced and on occasion I'm pretty mean lol.

When I heard about VRinsane's new POP360 headset I asked them very nicely if we could try out a headset, the guys were awesome and said of course.

The headset is very reasonably priced at £19.99 and would make the perfect present for any boy whose into his gadgets.

Noah pretty much flipped out when he saw the box on the table!
After we installed all the right apps on my phone, he popped it into the headset and sat their shouting OMG THIS IS AMAZING!

I had to see what all the fuss was about, and actually it was pretty amazing!
Noah had to fight me off it, as I was enjoying trying out all the different videos that the app had to offer.

The headset can be adjusted to fit most head sizes, and I can ever wear it with my glasses, though I felt better wearing it without them on.

Both the adult and kid app are great and have a good range of different videos, which update constantly. So you'll never run short of watching something different!

Noah gives the POP360 headset 10/10.

Feeding The Ducks


Today we decided to test the waters and see how Oscar handled going out for the first time in a few days.
It's back to school tomorrow and we still aren't 100% sure if he's well enough to go back.


A trip to feed the ducks and a play in the park seemed like a perfect way to test the waters.

After we spent the morning breaking up our stale bread we dropped Noah off at Sam's (withdrawal symptoms had kicked in) and we headed off to the duck pond.

The ducks here are really friendly and as soon as you step out the car they are heading towards you to see what you have bought them.




The boys loved watched them gobble up the bread, I'm sure Ru wanted to try and stroke some of them at one point.











Once the bread was gone, we sat and watched them for a little bit longer and then headed off to the park, which is just around the corner from the duck pond.










They all had fun and Oscar handled it well, though he's taken himself off to the quiet room to have a lay down, so we shall see how tomorrow goes!
