...Rawr-some fun with Imaginext and Jurassic World...

The boys all love anything to do with Dinosaurs and are pretty big fans of Jurassic World and cannot wait to see the new one (which will have to be once it's available to buy on Sky, as the boy's arent all big cinema fans. 
So when I was asked if they would like to try out the brand new Imaginext Jurassic World' I knew instantly they would love too!



On Sunday Rupert spent the day with his Auntie and Uncle and they took him to a local Dinosaur park! 
His love for those scary creatures has just boomed over the past few weeks, so I thought once he was home it would be the perfect time to open up the giant box containing all the Rawr-some dino treats from Imaginext.


We were sent;

Walking Indoraptor - RRP £64.99
Dinosaur Hauler - RRP - £42.99
 Feature Character Assortment - RRP £18.99
(Three to Collect - Each set includes a super cool dinosaur, character figure, and accessories)
and a 
Basic Character Assortment - £11.99





Ru chose the giant walking Indoraptor as his toy and ran off into the garden to have a play, he thought how she chased after Owen was amazing he kept telling me she was a magic dinosaur!
He kept trying to out drive the Indoraptor but she kept right on his heels.

The other's were soon outside playing alongside Ru and diving deep into their very own Jurassic World.




Oscar loved how the Dinosaur Hauler came with everything he could possibly need to catch his very own dinosaur.
The Dinosaur Hauler comes with hauler vehicle, projectile launcher, net projectile, dinosaur and Asset Containment Unit (ACU) figure.

He decided his Dinosaur was the Dino which is called Blue in the first movie (forgive me if he's wrong) and he loved making her attack his figure and found all sorts of horrible endings for that poor figure.


Noah even dragged himself away from his room to play with the Jurassic World figures!
He loved this vehicle as he remembers it from the first film and has always said he would love to go inside one, so having it as a toy is the next best thing.

Noah joined up with Oscar to see if Oscar's Blue could catch up with Noah and attack his figure, and unfortunately for her Blue did many, many, many times!

Alex thought his venom throwing dinosaur was the best and loved how he could knock down his human figure and get him all covered in slime (best part about that, was the fact it wasn't real slime!)




I haven't seen all four boys playing together like this in such a long time, usually, within minutes one or two are crying about how someone else has got their toy or called them a name or god forbid looked at them! 
They played with the Imaginext toys for most of the afternoon, sharing nicely taking it in turns to use the different toys and make up all sorts of exciting stories, they even took my phone and used it to make some stop animation short films. 









The Imaginext Jurassic World toy range really is perfect for everyone, it has a nice range of items and there's something for everyone's budget and they all very entertaining from the really big toys to the little ones.
They could make the perfect birthday present, a well done on a school achievement or I'm going to say it.... stocking filler!

All the boys love the Jurassic World range and have played with them every day since we unboxed them! 
Most of the figures and dinosaurs all join us at meal times.

Highly recommended 

Suitable for ages 3+

Snow Fun

I thought I'd share some photos from the snow.
We haven't really been up to much lately, so I don't have much to report.
I have completed my first TMA and I'm about to send it off to be marked and the boys all had their first ever snow day!

Monday


Tuesday



Tuesday school run








Wednesday

No School!!!
I'm really enjoying having this as my view!
Every time I come into the kitchen this is what I'm greeted with and it fills with me joy, I'll be sad once it all melts away.
I'd love to live somewhere where it was constantly snowy.






Have you been having fun in the snow?

... Boys In The Wood ...

First walk in the woods in 2018!

The boys are at their happiest when they are making up some adventure game in the woods.
Today's adventure was hunting for Smurf Village.

They love nothing more than climbing trees, getting muddy and finding faces in the trees.



They all have so much energy its nice to get them out somewhere local and let them run it off.
The more we go the more wild their imaginations become.
Last time was just after the boys had watched Jumanji and after they heard a gunshot go off in one of the near by fields they decided that was the hunter and they were being hunted, I've never seen them run off so fast!



Each time we come to these woods we find another trail to get lost on.
We have been a few times now and every time we have never been able to find the pervious trail we took!
Which helps keep it exciting for the boys and the dog!



Now after getting extremely muddy after rolling down hills we are back home in the warm catching up with Grandpa's Great Escape!
The boys all munching on biscuits and I have a lovely hot coffee!

Four Boys In The Wood


We got out the house today by taking the boys off to Dersingham woods.
We love it there, it's become our favourite place to walk the dog and we drive through it twice a week taking Ru to nursery.

We haven't done much this week due to some health issues that I'm trying to deal with, so it was nice to get some fresh air and see they boys running and jumping about in nature.


When we said we're off to the woods today, their first question was.... can we climb trees?
For boys who have never really show much interest in climbing trees it was a bit of a oh where did that come from moment but we said of course!

As soon as they were out the van they went off on a hunt to find the perfect tree to climb.
Noah thought he was doing really well until he turned around and saw that Alex was further up than him.


Even Ru had a go.



After they had finished climbing trees we went off to find the local cows.
They weren't in their usual spot, so it took a little time.
We eventually found them at the bottom of the hill.

They were all pretty desperate to get as close as possible, but within getting a few feet away they decided that was far too close and they ran back up the steps to Daddy.



We did a little bit of fairy hunting and the boys all managed to find at least ten little mushrooms each, unfortunately no fairies this time.


A quick tribe pose before jumping back in the van and heading off to Nana's for a quick dip in the hot-tub.

Kite Flying on Snettisham Beach


On Sunday we took the boys to a different beach, one in Snettisham. 
So still not very far from ours.

We hadn't been before so weren't too sure what it would be like, but as soon as we drove into the car park, we knew it was an amazing beach.

Sand dunes greeted us and the boys couldn't wait to climb them!


The twins were given kites for their birthday and have been desperate to fly them.
So a trip to the beach was the perfect opportunity to test them out. 


They were super easy to put together and Alex's bumblebee kite went straight up without any effort!
Oscars butterfly was a bit more tricky.
Why, we weren't too sure as they both look like they're the same design.




Once I Alex's up in the sky he soon took over laughing his head off at how high it was.

Oscar's took a few goes but eventually it got flight and stayed up for a bit before crashing down on my head.


Ru took over from Alex, as he wanted to go off and play with Noah in the sea.


Ru was pretty good at keeping the kite under control, we did think he'd just let go but he was more than happy to just stand there holding on watching it flutter around in the sky.


Once they were all finished with the kites, we left them with daddy and headed off to find the sea....
The twins decided they were walking to America!


We didn't quite get to the sea, as it was miles out and I made them turn around before the tides started to come in.

Even though they didn't quite make America they all had fun jumping in the sandy/muddy puddles on the way back.


Once back on dry land we headed back to the van to dust off our feet and grab an ice cream.






Ice cream, Kite flying and Puddle jumping = a perfect way to spend a Sunday!
