... Kinetic Rock 3-in-1 Loader ...

Kinetic Rock 3-in-1 Loader. Drill, crush, and scoop with Kinetic Rock’s 3-in-1 Loader. Equipped with three clip-on tools, this loader is ready for business! 
Each set comes with gold Kinetic Rock! 
Made from natural rock, it magically sticks together and is fun to squeeze, shape, and mould! 


Did you know that Kinetic Sand is the number one sand brand* in the UK.




Key Features

Children 3+ years 
RRP £16.99
Poseable construction figure and shovel, pick, wrench and lunchbox to create a real construction jobsite!

Included in the box 
8 oz. (226 g) of kinetic rock gold,. 
1 deluxe construction vehicle,. 
3 attachable vehicle tools,. 
5 accessories,. 
1 character figurine


Ru was over the moon to recieve the Kinetic Rock 3 in 1 loader, he loves playing with his Kinetic Sand sets and was super excited to try out something a little new!

As soon as we opened the box and Ru saw the magical gold rock and said it looks just like 'pirate gold Mummy!!'
Ru loves feeling all sorts of different textures and I could tell he was really enjoying the texture of the  Kinetic Rock as he played.
He couldn't stop squeezing the rock in his hands and watching it fall to the table.

Ru got right into playing, digging away with the Loader and then switching his tools around to see which tool worked best.

He then decided to hide the toy diamond inside all the Kinetic Rock and then use the pickax to dig it out again, just like his brothers do on Minecraft.





Once Ru was finished I had the task of tidying it all away, and what i thought might be a bit of a task was actually really rather easy.
The Kinetic Rock does what it says it does and sticks together nicely and it me took a matter of moments to tidy it all away back into the box, ready for the next time Ru wants to play!

Find out more about Kinetic Rock over on the Kinetic Sand website...
Kinetic Rock 3 in 1 Loader is avaliable from most good toy stores.

HATCHIMALS SURPRISE ... What's inside?!?

Last year the boys begged me for to get them Hatchimals for Christmas, but try as I might they were sold out everywhere!
So when I was asked if I would be part of the awesome blogger crew who got to review the brand new Hatchimals Surprise I was more than eager to say yes.


This year they've changed things up a bit by adding an amazing surprise in to the mix.
Last night their was a mass un-hatching on twitter by all the bloggers and it was pretty fun to be a part of.
If you missed that and haven't guessed whats inside .... it was TWINS!

we had the purple and blue egg..

When the twins first saw the egg they bickered between themselves at who would get the animal inside.
Oscar - 'I'll have it and you can have something else.'
Alex - 'No I think I'll have it and mummy can buy you another one!'

I smiled onwards at them and told them to start the hatching process.


























The hatching process was pretty exciting actually, because I knew what was coming I was a bit more keen than the boys. It took about 15 minutes of constant play before the egg decided to hatch.

We all took turns in rubbing its bottom and tilting it when it felt sick.
I had the handy quick start guide to hand to tell the twins what it was feeling and what they had to do.

Every time the Hatchimals knocked the boys faces lit up and the instantly started knocking back.

It was really sweet to see how excited they were.



As the hatching time came nearer the top of the egg became softer, so I encouraged the boys to keep rubbing its bottom as that would help it hatch.

As the egg started to hatch the boys couldn't wait, so they started to give it a helping hand.... probably so they could grab it first before the other one did.

Their faces when they realised there was TWO inside was priceless! (A little video at the end so you can see their joy!)

As soon as they were both out the egg and placed together they started singing 'Hatchy Birthday' to each other.



We hatched boy / girl twins who have been lovingly named;
Alex and Lexy.
Not very original I know, but I'm sure they'll be renamed at some point.

It's really hard to find one toy thats suitable for twins, normally when buying for the twins I have to buy two of one thing, just so they don't fight and of course I end up spending a small fortune.

So the Hatchimals Surprise is perfect for twins, even normal siblings.
This will make the a perfect joint Christmas Present.



Key Features;

 There are three stages that your will go through - baby, toddler and kid.
They'll sing 'Hatchy Birthday' as they enter each stage so you'll know which games to play and how to care for them.

  • These Hatchimals share a special bond – telling each other jokes, playing games, saying “I love you” and more! 
  • As they enter each stage, they play different games and say different things.
  • They even feel sad when they’re apart for too long! 
  • Watch as one moves and dances, while the other repeats everything you say!
  • Hatchimals Surprise are made for kids aged 5+. 
  • 2 AA batteries and 3 LR44 button cells batteries required (included).

You can hatch PeaCats or Giraven.
The peaCats come in the purple/blue egg and the Giravens come in the pink/yellow egg.

Just a little video of the twins hatching their egg!


 Available now from Smyths Toys for £74.99

About the show:
PAW Patrol Live! “Race to the Rescue” shows that “No job is too big, no pup is too small!” and shares lessons for all ages about community, social skills and problem solving as the characters each use their unique skills and teamwork. 
When Mayor Goodway goes missing during the day of the Great Adventure Bay Race, the pups come to the rescue. Families can join Ryder, Chase, Marshall, Rocky, Rubble, Zuma, Skye and Everest for the show’s first tour in UK and Ireland. Running at 80 minutes, PAW Patrol Live! “Race to the Rescue” includes two acts and an intermission. 
The show is set to engage audiences with Bunraku puppetry, an innovative costuming approach that brings the PAW Patrol characters to life on stage with their vehicles and packs. 

“Using Bunraku, puppetry elements are built into costumes worn by real actors to create a wonderful combination of life-size pups and to make a stronger connection with the audience. The PAW Patrol cast sings and dances, which brings a fun, realistic parallel between the animated series and the live show,” says Jim Waters, producer, VStar Entertainment Group.

The performance features music, dance and an original script as well as classic theatrical scenery along with a high-tech video wall that visually transports families PAW Patrol locations such as Adventure Bay, The Lookout, Seal Island, Farmer Yumi's farm and Jake's Mountain.
