Num Noms Series 4 // Review.

To celebrate the new release of Num Noms series 4 we were sent...

The brand new Num Noms magazine,
Sweet Sampler Lunch box,
and the
Frozen yogurt starter pack.

 Ru adores Num Noms so was over the moon to see all the new ones. 
He was also pretty taken with the magazine and couldn't wait to get the toy camera out of the packaging.

The magazine was packed full of goodies and had lots of activities to do inside.
I'm sure this will be a magazine that Ru will want to buy again and again. 
 After Ru had finished looking at the mag and playing with the camera he moved on to the Frozen Yogurt Starter Pack RRP £11.95.

In the pack was -
Mango Sherbet,
Sprinkles Froyo,
Razzy Froyo 
Orange Drop Gloss-up.
Along with a tray and spoon.

Ru's favourite was Razzy Froyo.

He then moved on to opening up the Sweet Sampler Lunch Box   RRP £17.99.

Inside he got -
Orange Crunch,
Violet Contessa,
Madelyn Macaron,
Tia Tea-Time,
Sugar Créme,
Nilla Shake,
Berries N Créme,
Hottie Chocolate,
Confetti Cookie,
Mint Swirl Gloss-up,
Lemon Drop Gloss-up

Inside the Lunch box you also receive a mystery box ... inside Ru's it was 
Lemons Pink-Fill.

Ru was pretty impressed with his brand new collection of Num Noms.

After he had finished unboxing them all, he sat in the lounge for a while playing with them, lining them up and then putting them in his play kitchen then feeding them to me and Jon.
He also enjoyed putting on the lipgloss.

You can find Num Noms series 4 in all good toy shops!

L.O.L Surprise! Doll

After taking the U.S by storm the L.O.L Surprise! is set to be the next collectable craze in the UK, as the ultimate unboxing toy is combined with the anticipation of surprise!

Much like unwrapping a gift, watch the excitement build as each 7 layers reveal a different surprise, including emoji stickers, accessory, and finally their hero - a L.O.L Surprise doll.

Not you average doll, these fashion forward characters are packed with personality. From Rockers to Merbabies, each L.OL Surprise! comes complete with bathtub, doll stand and hangout, all doubling up as a purse.

But the surprise doesn't end there, once the final layer has been unwrapped, feed the adorable tot water with its baby bottle and reveal its feature - with special dolls changing colour when placed in cold water!

We unboxed the fabulous Centre Stage.
Ru loved unwrapping all the packaging and finding the little surprises.
He instantly fell in love with his doll and after I showed him that you could feed her and bath her he was over the moon.

He took her into the garden and pretty much played with her all day!

I can see these snazzy dolls becoming a thing for him!

L.O.L Surprise! series 1 is for children aged 3+ and available from all good toy retailers
including Argos, Asda, The Entertainer, Smyths, Tesco and ToysRUS.
RRP £7.99

Paint Your Own Fairy Door Review

I have always been a big fan of the Irish Fairy Door Company so when I was asked to review a paint your own fairy door, a new product from them I was more than eager to say yes!
Fairies aren't just for girls!
My boys love the idea of fairies and having one come live with us has cause a big buzz in the house!

They are all on their best behaviour and love waking up to see if our boy fairy Flynn has left them a little note.

The idea behind the Fairy Doors is to keep the imagination alive!
Fairies also blow away bad dreams, take care of sick or hurt insects, collect teeth, write notes, take worries away, grant wishes, watch dreams at night to learn more about their humans, collect food and train Greenwings (trainee fairies).
These are just a few of the jobs they do. They also being good luck and happiness where ever they go!

In the paint your own fairy door kit you receive
a wooden door,
3 stepping stones,
felt tip pens,
a paint brush,
door art - flowers, clovers, toadstools, hinges, etc.
a magic key,
the Family / Fairy Lease Agreement,
a secret code to register your fairy,
colouring book / fairy welcome guide.

The boys asked me to paint the door and told me which colours to use.
They all then took it in turns to place on the decorations.

Once our door was dry, we placed it on top of our radiator cover by the front door, the twins thought this would be the best place for our new fairy to live. As its away from the dog and little Rupert hands.
They did get slightly worried about when we move to our new house, but I told them Flynn would be able to go and stay in Fairy Valley whilst we got set up and then we'd be able to invite him back!

Flynn was very easy to register over on the Irish Fairy Door Company's website, it took no longer than 5 minutes.

The night we put the key out the twins went to bed with out any hiccups, they were so excited about the next morning they couldn't wait to fall asleep.
In the morning they raced down the stairs to see if Flynn had moved in.

After school the twins each drew a picture and told me what to write in a note and they left them in front of his door!

I love seeing them get so excited when they talk about Flynn and what they want to leave for him and how all their bad dreams have gone.
Noah is desperate to loose another tooth so Flynn can take it off to his tooth fairy friend.
I have also told them if they really behave their special Elf Scout will come back this Christmas through Flynn's special door.
As you can imagine the boys are all trying their best to behave.

Both the boys and myself love the fairy door, the magic and fun it brings really is priceless!

These are just some of the benefits of having a fairy come and live with you:
  • Self-expression – children are encouraged to make up stories and draw pictures for their fairies
  • Language skills – developed through note-writing and reading with family
  • Recognition – fairies love to praise and let their humans know how proud they are of their everyday hard work and achievements
  • Support – fairies have often been very supportive of lessons when a message is being delivered e.g. “I love it when your room is nice and tidy! It’s makes it much easier for me to come in and out through my door!’
  • Make and do – we provide weekly updates, some of which are make and do activities. Once you register your fairy, you receive a weekly email to help the whole family keep the magic flowing easily
  • Emotional topics – fairies are amazing at taking worries away and sometimes even help to grant wishes!   
If your looking for that perfect Christmas present why not buy a Paint Your Own Fairy Door for only £20.00.
It's sure to make any child glow with excitement!

*I was sent the product for free, in return for an honest review.
