... Thomas & Friends TrackMaster Twisting Tornado Set ...


If you are followers of the blog you will know Ru is a massive fan of the Thomas Tracks and is always over the moon when we are asked to review a new one.

When we were asked to review the new Twisting Tornado Set I was more than keen to say yes.
Ru has been doing really well at nursery and it was nice for him to receive a surprise in the post.


Key Features

·       Motorised track set
·       Includes unique Thomas TrackMaster engine
·       Connects to other TrackMaster playsets
·       RRP £24.99
Suitable for age 3 years+


The track was really simple to build, it all clicked together nicely and the track layout was really easy to follow.
Ru sat patiently and watched as I built, once it was ready to go he popped Thomas down and giggled away as he sped off.



It took a few goes before he realised he had to move the tornado back before Thomas reached it, but once he got the hang of it there was no stopping him.
The race was on to get it back into place before Thomas had zoomed around the track.


Thomas takes shelter inside the old shed but only to find the Tornado takes him into a whirlwind and spins him across the field knocking down all the powerline poles on its way to the other side of the track.

Fast-paced and full of fun, this is definitely one of his favourite Thomas Track Master sets!



After playing you can unclick the track and place it back in the box.
This track can also connect to other TrackMaster™ playsets for non-stop adventures!
I'd highly recommend this set to any parent with a Thomas fan, it's reasonably priced and will last well and bring endless hours of fun.
  
You can catch Thomas & Friends over on their YouTube Channel.

... Rubiks 2x2 Giveaway ...

We love Rubik's cubes in this house and we are always trying to solve one cube or another.
We were recently sent this 2x2 and I stupidly thought oh this will be easy, I'll be able to crack this one.....


Well, I was wrong and I'm yet to solve it.
Noah, on the other hand, is a bit of a dab hand when it comes to Rubik's cubes and has very nearly solved it!


Did you know...

The world’s largest Rubik’s Cube is three metres tall 
The smallest is just 10mm wide
Both turn just like a regular cube.

There are more than 43 quintillion ways to scramble The Rubik’s Cube - that’s loads! 
In fact, there are 43,252,003,274,489,856,000 possibilities!

If you turn The Rubik's Cube once every second, it will take you 1.4 trillion years to go through all the permutations. 
(The universe is just 14 billion years old!)



The 2x2 Rubik’s Cube (also known as the pocket or mini cube) consists of 8 corner cubies and operates in much the same way as its bigger brother – the Rubik’s Cube. 
As it is smaller than the traditional Rubik’s cube it can be more easily slipped into a pocket or bag, making it the perfect item to take on a bus, 

If you do need a little help solving your Rubik's Cube you can find some much needed help over on the Rubik's website here.

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?

Whats in the box;

The Roto Revolution™ Track Set includes 2 launchers and 2 Hot Wheels® cars.



As soon as this track was the built the boys were eager to get racing!
The track really took no time at all putting together, I'm sure Noah could have done this with his eyes shut it was that simple!

It really is the perfect entertainment for the twins, they love nothing more than challenging each other to find out whose the best!
So this track really is perfect for them.

Oscar picked the Pink Hot Wheel and Alex picked the blue & orange Hot Wheel and they each took their place behind their launchers.


It took them both a few goes, as they just couldn't get their timings right, and would end up missing the slot as the track rotated.

After a few goes Alex seemed to get the hang of it which annoyed Oscar, so much so that he really focused and ended up slamming his launcher just at the right time to get his car shooting around the track and knocking off Alex's car right off the track!

Tears, tantrums and laughter were all part of the experience of playing with this track!
Once the frustration was over the fun began and they sat and played happily whilst I cracked on with Sunday dinner.

After the boys were finished even Ru tried to have a go, but he just couldn't get the car onto the track, but to be fair he was just happy with hitting his launcher and watching the car crash into the track.

I was surprised both twins managed to get their cars to loop the loop without falling to the floor mid loop!



Another toy that would be perfect for twins, as they each get a car and each get to play it at the same time!
This track would make an awesome Christmas present.
Available from Argos for £49.99
