L.O.L. Surprise! Lil Sisters Ball Review

Rupert adored his last L.O.L Surprise! Doll so when we were asked if we wanted to unwrap a L.O.L Surprise! Lil Sister ball I was more than happy to say yes.


Discover 5 layers of surprise in each L.O.L. Surprise! Lil Sisters ball! 
As you unbox each layer a new surprise in unveiled, hinting at which L.O.L. Surprise! Lil Sisters doll you're going to get! And that's not all - bathe her for an additional water surprise! 
The ball becomes a keychain or bath playset. 
Mix and match your L.O.L. Surprise! Lil Sisters accessories with your L.O.L. Surprise!

 Tots 45+ to collect in Series 2!


He instantly knew what it was and was keen to get unwrapping to see which little baby he would get.


With only 5 layers to unwrap it didn't take him long to get to the ball and crack it open.
Inside there were 4 little packages containing 
One head accessory,
A pair of shoes,
The keychain for the ball and the doll itself.


Ru unwrapped Lil Miss Baby who is part of the Glam Club.


I love the detail in her hair.
A style I have tried many a time and failed at!


Ru made me fill up her bath and he took it outside to play with.
The dolls are meant to reveal a secret when you bathe them but we aren't 100% sure what ours does.
Ru is going to take her into his bath this evening and see if anything happens....if it does ill make sure I let you know!


L.O.L Surprise! Lil Sister series 2 is for children aged 3+ and available from all good toy retailers
including Argos, Asda, The Entertainer, Smyths, Tesco and ToysRUS.

Thomas & Friends Adventures Shark Escape

The boys all love Thomas the Tank and were over the moon when this Thomas & Friends train set turned up at the door.


  Key features of the product:

o    Lift the crate to send Thomas down into the loop-de-loop, translucent wave track
o    Shark jaws chomp as Thomas zooms past
o    Helps develop gross motor and sensory skills, and helps inspire imagination
o    RRP £29.99
o    Suitable for ages 3+


It was nice and easy to assemble and took me about 5 minutes to put the track together.
No batteries were needed which meant play could happen as soon as it was built!
Always a bonus point for the twins!

Before I even had a chance to show them how to do it the twins took over as they already knew what they were doing thanks to seeing an advert on TV.

The twins tried their hardest to show Ru how to get Thomas to Loop de Loop, but he was having none of it and kept opening the crate before the ramp was fully lifted in the air.
Which resulted in Thomas just making it to the start of the loop.



When he eventually let the twins have a go, they showed him again and eventually he got the hang of it.


Watching Thomas loop de loop all sent them in to giggling fits and they were sure the shark was going to get him.
I think they secretly wanted Mr Shark to chomp on him every time! 
A few times the shark won but the other times Thomas was way to fast for him.


The twins played really nicely together and even made a little game that involved Harold leaving the crate and coming to Thomas's rescue.


This would make a wonderful present for any Thomas Fan.

Baby Annabell's Brother Proving Dolls Aren't Just For Girls


Recently Ru has been taking a keen interest in all the babies that he sees when we're out and about, so when asked if we wanted to review Baby Annabell's Brother, I thought it could be the perfect cure for his baby obsession.


Baby Annabell – the UK’s number one nurturing doll – is an authentic, lifelike baby doll which enables realistic nurturing role play, building a bridge to the real baby world allowing girls to be like their own Mother, this creates a social emotional bond and encourages social skills. 
       Baby Annabell has several exciting new additions to its popular range of dolls and accessories this spring to keep generations of little doll mummies and daddies playing from morning through to night.

Baby Annabell Brother (RRP £54.99)
  Just like his sister, Baby Annabell Brother has lots of realistic functions – and now he wets his nappy too! Love and care for him just like a real baby. 
For ages 3 years and over


Ru took to caring for his new baby straight away, and wanted to give him his bottle and shut his blind so that it was nice and dark for him.
It was lovely to see his kind side shine out for all to see, what I wasn't expecting was all the other boys to take a liking to him.
Oscar was desperate for cuddles, so desperate that he sat right next to Ru and waited patiently.
Something that would never happen normally.


Baby Annabell's brother comes with;
A dummy,
a bottle,
a bib,
a nappy,
a cute silver pendant,
one outfit.

Key Features,
 babbles, giggles, sleeps, burps and wets, has lifelike facial movements.



Ru has named his baby George, after one of his other obsessions .... Peppa Pig.


He loves his baby George and takes him out in the garden and drives him about in his car.
He's stopped sharing him with the others, as its his baby and no one is allowed to touch.
He loves feeding him his bottle and giving him cuddles when he cries.

Ru found one of Alex's first baby-grows in my drawers and insisted he put it on his baby.
It's very strange to think Alex was far too small for that outfit when I first put it on his, but the doll fits it perfectly!


If you are unsure about buying a doll for your little boy, just let toys be toys and let your kid have fun!

You can buy Baby Annabell's Brother from Toys R Us for £54.99
