LEGO City // Jungle Halftrack Mission Review

I recently shared a post all about how LEGO and Nat Geo Kids were teaming up...

National Geographic Kids and LEGO® City have collaborated on a special partnership to inspire children to explore, discover and learn about jungles and the importance of their preservation. 
Known for his Science outreach work and exploration of the "Boiling River” in the Amazon, National Geographic Explorer, Andres Ruzo, is spearheading the project, and is passionate about sharing the importance of these habitats with future ‘young explorers’. 

Through LEGO City Jungle bricks, vehicles, and mini-figures Ruzo has created a fun way to highlight what incredible habitats jungles are, helping children learn more about their diversity, incredible plant and animal species, as well the importance of conservation for the future.

To go along side that blog post, LEGO sent me the new Lego City Jungle Halftrack Mission to review.


Noah loves his wildlife and often enjoys watching programmes like Deadly 60, Planet Earth etc, so when I told him all about LEGO's venture he was eager to get his hands on one of the new sets.


The Jungle Halftrack Mission comes with 4 bags and 3 instruction books!
The set includes a male and female explorer mini figures, 
panther and spider figures, 
a camera, 
machete, 
walkie-talkie, 
pan 
and a build-able campfire, 
an AVT with removable crate and the halftrack with chain.
Total piece count - 378 pieces,
Recommended age 6+.


Noah found it really easy following the instructions and whizzed his way through the first book within 10 minutes.
He loved that he now has a LEGO panther, which is one of his favourite animals!


Book two was the Halftrack, he needed a little help with this and I was more than happy to lend a hand.
I love building LEGO, I find it quite therapeutic in a way.
It was also nice spending some one on one time with Noah, as that doesn't seem to happen as much as it should.


Book Three was the Temple.
Noah loved building this as he loved making the booby trap and laughed even more as he said it....
Much to my annoyance he didn't let me help with this bit.


This LEGO set was great fun to build, and we had even more fun setting the scenes for the photos in the garden and having fun playing with the mini figures.

It was great to see Noah's imagination come alive.




You can buy the LEGO Jungle halftrack Mission from SMYTHS Toy store for £24.99

Twirlywoos // Fun Sounds Big Red Boat and Fun Sounds Great Bighoo Soft Toy Review


Ru adores the Twirlywoos and always enjoys watching the shows.

So when Golden Bear Toys sent him some new Fun Sound toys to play with his eyes lit right up just like it was Christmas!


We were sent;

Fun Sounds Great Bighoo soft toy (RRP £10.99)
  • Super soft and beautifully textured fabrics
  •  Character says their signature sounds
  • He makes a lloveable cuddly companion and a great friend to go on twirly adventures with!

and


  • Includes 3 fun boat sounds
  • Built to last from tough materials
  • The perfect size for little hands



Ru was very impressed with his new toys and wanted to set sail on a Twirlywoo adventure straight away.

He loved hearing the boat make noises and he couldn't resist a cuddle or two from Great Big Hoo.
He even went and fetched his Interactive Musical Chick to join in the fun.



The toys are lovely and super cute and I think they would make an ideal gift for any little Twirlywoo fan.
They're not overly priced and have they have a wow factor.
Rupert certainly wow'd when he saw his.



Rupert has really fallen in love with these toys and he sits his Big Red Boat proudly on his shelf when he goes to bed, so that its safe from his brothers and in his view at all times. 
Great BigHoo cuddles up next to him in bed to help keep him nice and safe while he sleeps.



Do you have a Twirlywoo fan at home?

WWE Power Props


Noah has been a fan of WWE since he was in reception class.
There was no way he going to get away without being a fan. Jon has a love for wrestling that runs deep within his bones, even I grew up watching it and even though I say I don't enjoy it, I know most of the wrestlers and do actually get really into it when we watch RAW.

Noah was introduced to the world of WWE early on and loved it as soon as he saw it.
Jon is always keen to take him to the Live shows whenever possible and is more than happy to sit beside him on the playstation for hours on end and play WWE 2K17.


Now that we live just around the corner from his cousin Sam, another WWE super fan I hear nothing but WWE this and WWE that.
They are both mad about the sport and if they aren't telling each other all the different facts about one wrestler or another they are acting out their favourite finishers on poor innocent teddy bears.

So when I was sent some WWE Power Props I knew I was going to gain some mum points.


We were sent;
and


Dean Ambrose is one of Noah's favourite wrestlers, so the ladder and t-shirt have now become his favourite toy.

Sam and Noah both have had great fun playing with the foam toys.
They are nice and hardy and won't be easily broken, no matter how hard they hit them onto the floor. Nor do they look like that will start to fall apart anytime soon.

They are nicely made to look like the real thing and are really good at helping wrestling fans feel like real life Superstars!

DC Super Friends Interactive Power Punch Batman


Rupert is Super Hero mad and practically lives in Alex's old skin tight and rather holey Spiderman costume.
So when we were sent this super cool Batman toy I knew it would be love at first sight!


Key Features:
With fully poseable arms, his fist makes cool punching noises on impact! 
Press his chest to hear signature Batman phrases and watch as his eyes light up as he speaks. Complete with cape, mask and utility belt for added detail, with this Super Friend on your side, you’re bound to win the colossal battle between good and evil! 
   

As soon as Ru saw Batman it was love. 
Hugs and kisses all round.
Once he figured out Batman could talk and make fighting noises he was off running round the house having a secret superhero mission with Batman.


The next thing I see is Ru acting out Spider-Man vs Batman battle.
Batman was being thrown around and then Ru was being thrown around, we couldn't help but laugh as normally Ru wouldn't be acting out something so well.

He's obviously been watching his brothers play wrestling.


After all the Super Hero fighting the only thing to do is to have a nice cuddle and power nap!


The interactive Batman is super soft and makes an excellent soft toy, the fact that you can play with him and he makes noises and have a few different batman phrases it makes playtime all the more fun!
A must for any Super Hero fan!
