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!

Review || Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture

So its my cousins wedding this weekend and I'm having to make my legs suitable for public viewing! Usually my legs are hidden and the only leg skin that see the light of day are the bits that peak out behind the holes in my jeans.

I don't tend to get my legs out but when I do, I do like them to look good!
I'm pretty lazy when it comes to shaving my legs, and I will let them grow rather wildly if I have no reason to show them off! Obviously something Jon loves hates with a passion!
I was very kindly sent Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture , to try! The fact its an all in one really appealed to me, because.... I am..... a lazy shaver!

Potty Training Academy // Sticker Chart.

Ru has taken to potty training like a pro! He's had hardly any accidents and is no longer using nappies during the day.

I started him off in Bambino Mio training pants but after a day of a couple accidents he started taking himself to the toilet without any prompt from me.

I introduced him to his Potty Training Academy sticker chart on day one and he was very keen to fill it up, so even when he didn't need the loo, he would try and squeeze something out just to get a sticker.

We used both a toddler loo seat and the carry me potty, but he prefers to do his wee's just like his brothers...standing up. He sings putting out the fiiiire when he's weeing (god knows where he got that from! lol.) 

The first real test was sending him to nursery and seeing if he returned with a bag full of wet pants. I made sure the washing machine was free for his return but when he came home wearing the same outfit that he went in in was such a win.

The sticker chart was a great help with gett…
