Smart Trike T3

Ru has longed for his very own scooter or a long time now and was over the moon when this very awesome SmartTrike T3 scooter got delivered!


The 2 stage T3 scooter by smarTrike, lets your little one have their independence and freedom to explore new adventures. But it also gives them stability when they need it. 
Suitable for children from the age of 2 and up, the T3 has two adaptable stages that help improve 
your child's motor skills in a fun and innovative way.

 It starts as a three wheeled trike and then when they have learned the basics you can move it to a two wheeler by pushing the two front wheels together.


Features
  • Tilting handle bar with soft-touch rubber grip handles. 
  • Swiss design. 
  • Easy to reach rear foot brake. 
  • Elastomer mechanism design. 
  • Tpr rubber surface footplate.



The scooter took two minutes to click together and soon as it was done Ru was off out into the garden to try it out.

He is always trying to have a go on the twins scooters, but they are a little mean and say no. He has attempted Noah's stunt scooter but it's far too big for him and he doesn't get very far.
I was expecting him to take a while to get use to the scooter, but as soon as he stepped on it he was off!


I don't think it will be long until I push the two front wheels together!
He really is amazing on it, he can out scoot me, he can even do little bunny hops.
I'll have to take him back to the skate park soon and let him loose on the ramps.

It's a fantastic first scooter and would make a brilliant Christmas present.
Available in Purple and Blue from Argos 
RRP £49.99


Monster Smash-Ups Raptor Remote Control Truck!

race, smash, eject and rebuild these rechargeable, high speed radio control monster trucks. 
When crashed, the front bumper activates the ejector seat, sending the driver flying across the room! The realistic monster truck suspension makes these trucks incredibly fun to tilt-turn, race and swerve.


The twins are really into remote control cars at the moment, but I'm always running around after them telling them to be careful they don't crash as the car will break, with this monster truck I don't actually have to do that!
Mum win!!

They can crash the truck to their hearts content!


Features
  • Monster smash ups: Race, smash, eject and rebuild with a monster smash ups RC trucks
  • Ejector seat and re-buildable: Crash your truck and watch your driver get ejected; quick rebuild and back to action
  • Radio controlled: 2.4 GHz radio controller with 20 m range, allowing multiple players to battle at the same time
  • Tilt-turn movement: Realistic, exciting, tilt turn suspension combined with high speed capability
  • Rechargeable: Includes rechargeable battery with 20 minutes run time and also customisable stickers, cones and flags; 
  • requires 2 x AA batteries (not included) for remote control
  • Ages 3 and up.

The truck is nice and easy to assemble which means the twins can quite happily do it themselves without my intervention, which is always a bonus.
As otherwise I'd be constantly being asked to re-build it, as they crash it A LOT!

They always giggle with delight when their little raptor dude gets flown out of the truck and across the room.
 They have a little competition going to see who can get him to fly the furthest.
I'm not 100% sure whose winning, but I have a feeling its Oscar.


I like the fact it has a rechargeable battery as we have a lot of toys that eat batteries and they are always so expensive to keep buying so another mum win!
The boys all find the controls easy to use even Rupert can get the car to drive around the kitchen without a helping hand!

These monster trucks come in 3 designs
Raptor, Rhino and Viper!

They'd make awesome Christmas presents!
Available from Argos for £34.99

Two Weeks To Go ....

Yesterday we had our wedding rehearsal!!
I really can't believe that in two weeks time I'll no longer be a Miss!


I thought I'd share with you some of the planning and the little things I've been up to in preparation for the big day!

Found these in Next for £6 each... Perfect for putting by the cake!

I've had my make up trail and I've booked in to have a facial this week, then next week ill be having my eyebrows shaped and my nails done.
Hopefully I'll be having my hair trail done next Wednesday, my hair is the one thing that I'm really starting to worry about.

I'm sure once I've seen it done ill be able to relax a little!

I also re-tried my dress on the other day but because I couldn't get out to the bathroom mirror (the boys were all sat outside my room trying to see) I couldn't really see the dress properly and I started to worry it didn't actually look as nice as I thought it did!

So im popping out to B&Ms today to see if I can buy a full length mirror for the bedroom, I've been after a new one since our last one smashed so this is the perfect excuse to buy one.

My wedding ear tunnels.
I've been looking at a lot of Instagram weddings and Pinterest and starting to worry my wedding won't be as fancy or as amazing as the ones I'm seeing, but after reading an article on the Rock and Roll Bride Facebook group page I've given myself a slap and told myself my day will be fine as it will be what Jon and I want and not something I saw online that has been polished to perfection.

Me and Jon are far from perfect, and our wedding will be a reflection on us not someone else.

I've been spending a LOT of time browsing Not on the High Street website at all the wedding decor and getting rather carried away and then sending links to my mum and she's getting as carried away as I am, and ordering all sorts of things.

Things I'm not allowed to see, but things that are turning up on my door to tease me!


Noah tried on his wedding outfit and I nearly cried he looked so handsome and grown up in it!
It also made me think about dressing up the other 3 but then I quickly decided against as I know they would moan and whine about having to dress up in lovely things.

So they are sticking with Super Hero costumes!


Jon and I also got our wedding bands sorted .... Mine is a pretty little thing from Ernest Jones and he had his tattooed on, along with a nice surprise of my nickname!



I saw this on Facebook a little while ago and thought it would be fun for my Friday night girlie evening and whilst out in Next looking at waistcoats with Jon I saw it, so I had to grab it!!


Last but not least the only parcel that I have been allowed to open is my cake stand, and its very pretty and I can't wait to see my cake on it!


That's it really, I've probably missed out a load of stuff, but I'm sure ill write another post about the wedding before next week!
