Kinetic Sand Beach Box Set review

We were recruited onto the Toys R Us Toyologist programme a year ago when the boys reviewed the Star Wars Ultimate Anakin to Darth Vader Figure, a toy they are still very much enjoying now. We had been wondering when we might get invited to review a second toy for Toys R Us, so the boys were very pleased to be asked if they would like to review the Kinetic Sand Beach Box Set for free.

Kinetic Sand Beach Box Set

It arrived middle of the week but we waited until the weekend to test it out, as I was’t sure how much mess the boys might make, plus they would be less tired than trying it after school. I put out a mat in the kitchen for them to play on just in case of sand spillage. Then we opened the box to find a sand tray, four seaside theme moulds and a bag of purple sand. I tipped the sand into the tray and the boys got straight down to playing.

Kinetic Sand from ToysRUs

They had a whale of a time if you’ll excuse the pun telling seaside stories as they made and demolished their sand models. It kept them engrossed for ages. They were very pleased how well formed their models were each time compared to traditional sand. And I have to say the boys made very little mess. It was easy for me to clear up the small spillages on the mat back into the tray, due to the kinetic adhering nature of the sand.

Here is a video of the boys doing a sand modelling story.

And now I’ll include some comments from my point of view. In particular I’m comparing it against an existing indoor moon sand toy which son2 received as a present a couple of years ago. Firstly I was very pleased that it only contained one colour of sand, as our existing toy has two colours and they are now very mixed. Secondly I was very surprised to see that the sand tray did not have a lid like our existing toy. I wasn’t confident enough to store an open tray of sand just in it’s cardboard box. Too much risk of spillage, so I bagged the tray and contents in a carrier bag before putting back in the box after playtime.

Also I note that on the reverse of the box it states that you should store Kinetic Sand in a sealed container to keep it clean and dust free. So another reason why a lidded tray would be better.

So in summary a big thumbs up on the fun front, but you’ll need to be careful storing this toy. Please note this is designed as an indoor toy and should be kept dry.

It currently retails at Toys R Us for £19.99, and is recommended for age 3+.  Above pocket money prices but a good price for a present. I don’t know how this price compares to moon sand.

Shoutykid2 – book review and giveaway

Son1 was delighted to be offered the chance to read Shoutykid 2 for free having previously enjoyed reading the first Shoutykid book which he reviewed here.

Each day he would ask is it here yet and once it did arrive, he started reading it straight-away. And it only took him a few days to read, much much faster than the first book.

The full title of the book is Shoutykid How Harry Riddles Mega-Massively Broke the School. It is written by Simon Mayle.

Shoutykid 2 by Simon Mayle

Shoutykid by Simon Mayle

Shoutykid 2 is a very funny story about 10 year old Harry Riddles who writes shouty letters to famous people! Son1 found it very funny and gave it a big thumbs up.

Here is an example of one letter.

Dear Prince George,

It kind of sucks when your mum has a new baby and everyone’s like, ‘Congratulations, isn’t it great?’ and you’re thinking, ‘Not really, I might have to share my bedroom.’ But maybe you don’t have that problem? Don’t worry that your Mum and Dad will like the new baby more than you – they probably won’t and anyway you still get to be King one day so Ha! I won’t get my own country but I am better than the twins at X-box!

Good luck and have fun

Harry Riddles

PS. Say hi to the Queen from me.

Son1 reads Shoutykid 2

Here is son1’s video review of Shoutykid 2.

Shoutykid 2 is currently retailing on Amazon for £6.99 and is also available in kindle edition. It is targetted at children, age 9+ and is published by Harper Collins.

And son1 is very much looking forward to the third book about How Harry Riddles got nearly Almost Famous which is due to be published later this year in August.

Shoutykid 3 by Simon Mayle

Son1 also reminded me to tell you about Harry’s blog which is on the Shoutykid website.

And I’m hosting a rafflecopter competition to giveaway a copy of Shoutykid 2 to one lucky winner.

A visit to Bekonscot Model Village

Whilst visiting my parents during the Easter break, 10 of us took a family trip to Bekonscot Model Village. I last went there with 3 of my school friends for my 13th birthday treat. How times have changed. Although very popular, I didn’t see any teenagers there now, so not a cool young persons destination any more, but great for family fun.

Bekonscot model village

The history indicated that the village was opened back in 1929 and that the Queen visited it as a child. Exhibits are are still being added and replaced today. It also mentioned that there used to be over 50 model villages in the UK, but sadly very few left now. When Ramsgate model village closed down, some of their houses were relocated to Bekonscot.

We spent about 4 hours there and walked round the village several times over. Each time I spotted things I had missed before. The adults had a good giggle at the puns on a lot of the names, like Dan D Lyon Florists and the school with headmaster I Cane and caretaker B Tidy. And it was fun to peer inside the properties to see the characters like a child with a saucepan stuck on his head in the hospital. There was even a zoo, a maze (Hanton Court Maze), a circus, a funfair, a thatched cottage on fire and music playing from the bandstand. The boys both liked watching the trains travelling round the village best. There was also a slightly larger model railway for them to ride on and a playground.

So much thought has gone into it. I definitely recommend a visit. A great day out. And it was nice to see that all profits are donated to charity.

Although there was a cafe, we took a picnic lunch with us, including Mr Kipling Bakewell Slices for afters, as a day out is always better with cake. Son1 even had two slices!

So have you ever visited a model village. And if so, which one?

This post is an entry for #betterwithcake Linky Challenge, sponsored by Mr Kipling. Learn more at https://www.facebook.com/mrkiplingcakes. I missed out on getting the free cake, but bought a pack to take part in the challenge.

Cardmaking including a giveaway

Emma at docrafts has sent me a bundle of crafting goodies from the new Nature’s Gallery range free to review.

Docrafts Nature's Gallery crafting bundle

Regular readers of my blog may remember my earlier reviews of docrafts kits. I’ve had fun making Christmas decorations, a Roald Dahl decoupage card and gift labels previously, so I was really looking forward to trying these ones out.

Nature’s Gallery by Papermania is a new range for docrafts. It depicts a beautiful mix of botanical art illustrations and bird imagery, featuring herbal plants, ferns, specimen butterflies and insects. An ideal vintage collection for gardeners and bird lovers alike.

The items I received are:-
A4 Decoupage Pack – RRP £3.50
Six 3D Bird Stickers – RRP £2.50
A5 Paper Pack (32 sheets) – RRP £4
Mini Alphabet Stickers (306 pieces) – RRP £2.50
20 Ribbon Bows – RRP £2.50
3 cards and envelopes

I decided to make some cards. For my first card, I chose to use images entirely from the decoupage pack. No cutting was required as they just pressed out. I then built these up into a three dimensional picture using double sided sticky pads (not included). And I cut out a quarter from one of the A4 sheets to use as my background. I glued this onto a blank card and then glued my 3D picture onto that, along with a Happy Birthday banner, also pressed out from the pack.

I believe I said something similar before when making the Roald Dahl card, but I do think it would be helpful to include some sticky pads in the A4 Decoupage Pack.

natures valley decoupage

For my second card, I started by cutting a sheet from the A5 paper pack in half. I glued this onto one of the blank cards as my background. I then used letters from the pack of Mini Alphabet Stickers pack to write the words “Happy Birthday”. I added one of the 3D Bird Stickers which was ready prepared to stick straight on. Finally I attached one of the Ribbon Bows, again using a double sided sticky pad (not included).

natures valley decoupage

So a couple of very easy to make cards. But they could be used for more ambitious projects. I’d love to hear what you would do with them?

These products are part of a brand new range and are now available from docrafts stockists.

These are all great crafting supplies. I was very impressed with the quality and I consider them all to be very good value. You certainly get plenty for your money.

The docrafts website has loads of creative inspiration for crafting projects, plus a wide range of products for sale. It also has a busy crafting forum. Do take a look.

And I’m hosting a rafflecopter competition to giveaway a Nature’s Gallery crafting bundle courtesy of docrafts to one lucky winner.  A great prize.

A golden Easter display

I recently received two free products from Rust-oleum to review. I’ve already blogged about using their dry wipe paint to upcycle an old pinboard into a whiteboard and now I’m going to tell you what I did with their metallic gold paint.

Rust-oleum metallic gold paint

This was a product that I had originally expected to receive last year, although in spray format. And I had collected some pine cones last autumn ready to use in making Christmas decorations. So instead I decided to still paint the pine cones gold and use them in an Easter display for now. Then nearer Christmas time, I will convert them into decorations as originally planned.

Easter pine cone display

This was a lot simpler to use than the dry wipe paint, as I just needed to give it a quick stir after opening the tin to blend it, and then I was ready to start. I used a small brush but even so, a pine cone is quite fiddly to paint and would probably have looked a lot better with a spray paint. Perhaps I should have kept an old lamp that I recently gave away. With a new shade, it would have looked very nice painted gold.

Pine cones painted with Rust-oleum gold paint

It recommended leaving it 30 – 60 minutes to dry, but I actually left them overnight.

Painting pine cones with Rust-oleum gold paint

The gold paint comes in a 250 ml can and is certified Toy-safe so you can use it to decorate children’s toys and furniture. It is available from Homebase, currently retailing at £7.99. It also comes in silver. Good value and suitable for lots of projects. I do recommend this product.

So I’d love to hear what projects you would use this type of paint for? How about picture frames, dishes or vases.

Easter recipes using Primula cheese plus giveaway

Primula Easter Party ChallengeI was very pleased to be invited to take part in the Primula Easter Challenge, as I had great fun back in December making Primula Christmas recipes. This time I received a free Easter party pack containing 5 tubes of Primula cheese plus a basket of Easter cookie cutters, serviettes, paper plates, food picks and rabbit ears. The flavours of Primula I received were as follows
Primula Original Cheese
Primula Light Cheese
Primula Cheese with Ham
Primula Cheese with Chives
Primula Cheese with Prawns

Primula Easter Party Challenge

So I put on my rabbit ears to think of my Easter recipes, mostly my own but I did use one from the recipe sheet they emailed me.
Primula Easter Party Challenge

Firstly I decided to use the Easter cookie cutters to bake some egg, chick and rabbit cheesy biscuits.

Primula Cheesy Easter Biscuits

And I absolutely had to make the cute Easter chicks recipe from the Primula recipe email. You can see the original online here. I did find with a couple of the eggs that the yolk wasn’t visible at the recommended point of cutting the eggs ¼ from the top, so if neccessary cut another slice off to expose the yolk.

Mash the yolks then mix with the Primula cheese.
Spoon mixture back into the eggs and pop the top of the egg back on top of the mixture.
Cut a small amount of carrot for feet and beak and arrange on the plate.
Use black peppercorns for the eyes.

I then used two varieties of the Primula to make some tasty Ham Puffs and Mushroom Puffs.

Primula & Smoked Ham Puffs
Ham and Mushroom Puffs

Ingredients (makes 20)

1 320g sheet of pre-rolled puff pastry

8 – 16 Oyster mushrooms (depending on size)

Method

Preheat fan oven to 200deg C.
Wash mushrooms and allow to dry.
Remove pastry from fridge 10 minutes before use.
Unroll pastry onto a chopping board.
Cut into 20 squares, approx 6cm.
Cut slices of ham in half.
Fold each half slice of ham in half again and place on 12 of the pastry squares.
Squeeze a blob of Primula with Ham onto centre of each of these squares.
Place 1 large or 2 smaller oyster mushrooms on the other 8 pastry squares.
Squeeze a blob of Primula Light onto centre of each of these squares.
Place squares onto a greased baking sheet.
Bake in oven for about 10 minutes until Primula is melted and pastry is golden and puffed up.
Serve hot or cold and enjoy.

And to try out the Primula with prawns, I made some Prawn & Cheese Blinis, similar to the ones I did with smoked salmon at Christmas.

And more chocolate mini eggs to decorate a cheesecake. It is best if you can make this in a serving dish, as it is difficult to transfer onto a plate whole. But my china dish got broken recently and I haven’t replaced it yet, so I had to make it in a silicone mould.
Primula Easter White Chocolate Cheesecake

Easter White Chocolate Cheesecake

Ingredients

200g digestive biscuits

1 tube of Primula Original

I then decorated all the serving plates with the food picks, made a jug of squash and laid out the serviettes and paper plates for our family Easter party. Apart from avoiding the mushroom puffs, the boys declared it all very yummy.

Workforce Socks review & giveaway

I have received 4 free pairs of Workforce socks to review. The initial plan was that I would try the 2 pairs for size 6-8.5, whilst my other half tried the 2 pairs for size 6-11. However I found them too long in the foot, but luckily they all fitted my other half. The sock heel was up around the back of my ankle. I wear a size 5 shoe normally, but size 6 for hiking boots, so I had been hoping to wear them with my boots. My usual sock size is 4-7, but Workforce don’t sell many socks this small as their socks are more targeted at men. Looking at their range, the heavy duty safety trainer sock would probably have been better suited to me, as it also includes size 4-8.

Workforce socks

The 4 pairs received were as follows…
Ultimate Comfort Sock in grey, size 6-8.5, RRP £3.99 (WFHP300)
Ultimate Safety Sock in black, size 6-8.5, RRP £3.99 (WFHP200)
Heavy Gauge Boot Sock in navy, size 6-11, RRP £5 (WFH0025)
Heavy Gauge Boot Sock in grey, size 6-11, RRP £5 (WFH0025)

Both the comfort sock and safety sock are labelled with an L and R for left and right foot. They have been constructed with a true left and right fit for total comfort and support. I also noticed that they both contained CoolMax which is what I personally look for in a hiking sock, as I’m not so fond of wool. In comparison, the heavy gauge boot sock is 60% wool.

My other half liked the comfort sock best. Without going into too much gory information, he said that they seemed to have a beneficial effect on his athlete’s foot. I expect that may be due to the natural antibacterial protection properties of the Bamboo, which is 38% of the sock’s composition.

He is a size 7.5 and said that he found the heavy gauge boot sock was slightly too big. It is aimed at a wider range of shoe sizes from 6-11 than the comfort sock or safety sock. He also found it to be slightly itchy, perhaps due to the high wool content.

He also deliberately tried swapping the left and right comfort socks and safety socks to the opposite feet and said that he couldn’t notice the difference.

In summary, we highly recommend all the socks, but do bear in mind if your shoe size is below or towards the lower end of the size range that they may be a touch too large. They are all great quality and have been designed with hardworking feet in mind.

You can purchase all of these socks via Sock Shop. The prices are good value in my opinion. They are not suitable to go in the tumble drier, although I am tempted in the hope that they might shrink to fit my foot, as I love the look and feel of both the Comfort sock and Safety sock.

And I’m hosting a rafflecopter competition to giveaway 2 pairs of of the Ultimate Comfort socks courtesy of Workforce to one lucky winner.

Superdrug Foot Scrub and Foot Cream review & giveaway

I received two Superdrug foot products to review, their own brand exfoliating foot scrub and intensive foot cream.

Superdrug exfoliating foot scrub and intensive foot cream

My feet always need a lot of tlc. Foot ailments, you name it, I have it, bunions, heel cracks, corns to name but a few. Every bathtime I’m there with the pumice stone trying to soften the rough callouses on my feet. And I dread summer, because not only do my feet look unsightly, they blister so easily if I’m not wearing socks and trainers. No pretty shoes and sandals for me. I even get blisters wearing flip flops. So as you can imagine I already use plenty of foot care products on a daily basis.

Tamper-proof seal on Superdrug exfoliating foot scrub

Tamper-proof seal

And now on to the testing. I was pleased to see on opening both tubes that they have a tamper-proof seal. They both smelt pleasant and were easy to apply. I have been using them every day for a week now. I’m using the foot scrub in either the shower or bath, so that it can be rinsed off. Afterwards I’m following up with the foot cream. And I’m also applying the foot cream again at bedtime.

I have to say as yet I haven’t noticed any improvement in the condition of my feet, however a week is early days. But also my feet are no worse than if I was still using my usual products which are certainly more expensive than these.

superdrug exfoliating foot scrub & intensive foot cream

Each of these products currently retails at £3.49 for a 100ml tube, so really good value for money in my opinion. Also Superdrug currently has a promotion on selected footcare products including both of these to buy one, get a second half price.

And I’m hosting a rafflecopter competition to giveaway a tube of foot scrub and a tube of foot cream to one lucky winner.

Objets de Désir Bird Stud Earrings Easter giveaway

This is a boutique which sells a beautiful range of handmade treasures created by emerging artists and designers from around the world. It includes a wide variety of lifestyle products from fashion and jewellery to homeware and accessories. Fab to browse around.

One of the designers whose work is showcased at Objets de Désir is Mica Peet and this is what she has to say about her style.

My design philosophy consists of juxtaposing my love of the beautiful natural world with an edgier, modern and idiosyncratic design aesthetic. My main focus is on how I can be innovative yet commercial with the strong use of my quirky illustrative style and how these translate into print designs to adorn the body and home. I love creating really detailed and abstract imagery that is full of energy yet that is confined and controlled into a literal shape inspired by animals. My products are forever evolving, and my head is constantly full to the brim with new idea’s just waiting to be created.

Do take a look at Mica’s work which includes jewellery, mirrors and illustrations. One of her lovely pieces are the bird stud earrings. This beautiful unique original pair have been handmade by laser cutting wood and incorporate one of Mica’s own print designs on the surface. And can you believe it? These gorgeous earrings currently only cost £6.50. What amazing value.

You can find out a bit more about Mica on the Objets de Désir blog when they talked to her last month. You can read what she had to say when she was in the spotlight here.
