I have select a few items from the website that I feel are a great present for Christmas for children.

Mood Cube (£5.50)

I think this is a great present for any children or adult that enjoy soft lighting to have them relax. My son has autistic tendencies and this mood light really helps him to calm down, especially when he is feeling really angry. I also think that the cube is a great way in creating a chilled ambience to a room because it changes different colours when it is switched on. It is battery operated but it lasts a long time and it is something that I enjoy as well so it’s always an added bonus.

Stikbots  (£9.95)  

StikBots are poseable figurines that are easy to manipulate and put into easy positions to create films. They are great tool for animation films for adults and children. You don’t even have to use them as a animated objects you can just play with them randomly like my son does. He has used this toy the most this week and I think it is going to be a firm favourite of his. He has enjoyed playing with them and creating imaginative play with them and they are really stickable on smooth clean work surfaces.

They come as a pack on two StikBots and you can also download the free app to record animated videos on iOS and Android.

Arctic adventure 4 piece set. (£12.95)

This lovely little set is great for imagination and role play for children. It comes with a Slide and cave, one polar bear (with adjustable head) and two seals. Both my boys but more so my four year old loved playing it especially letting the animals slide down the slide. I think it is a lovely little set that is ideal in taking it away if you’re travelling with a child.

Paint glow in the dark face and body paint kit (£10.95)

The paint is neon, glow in the dark. What child doesn’t like having their face painted and it is super cool for them as they can play in the dark especially now that we have the darker nights. It is super fun and my boys loved playing together in the room (result five minutes peace me, whoop!). I was attracted to it as it is a bit different and I like to have as many different forms of entertainment as possible, as we all know that children get bored very, very quickly!

The paints themselves are kind and gentle on the skin. You don’t need to use any water.  I found it really easy to apply and the brush was really good quality to use. It is really super fast in drying out and long lasting. I found it really easy to wash off with soap and water. It does say on the packet that it paints up to 100 faces.

The contents include 6 (13 ml) colours, pro paint brush, sponge, UV light, mixing palettes and tutorial guide.

I hope that has inspired you.

Beaver 

Hey readers,

My word of the week is:

Beaver
Because DS1 got chosen to look after the cuddly beaver all week from Scouts. So, we have been to Coombe Abbey (a beautiful park near where I live) on an adventure at the weekend to take some photos for Scouts. It was lovely to have a walk in the woods in Autumn, so many beautiful trees!

Of course at the weekend it was bonfire night and we saw so many beautiful, big fireworks. I love the colours, not so much the bang as I have sensitive ears. We had hot dogs,  I am glad we stayed at home as it was so blooming cold,  brrrr. We live up on 16th floor so  lucky to see all the fireworks. I do miss an actual bonfire, I just think they are beautiful to watch burning away, maybe one day we can when we move to a house, fingers crossed.

hope you have had a good week!

Fun 

Hey Readers,

My word of the week is:
because we have done same fun things during this week. We went to the cinema to see Paw Patrol, which made my son super happy, as he has been begging for ages. We went to the Showcase with there fancy recliner seats,  makes the experience so much more comfy.
For Halloween we visited a pumpkin patch and picked a MASSIVE pumpkin. Then we carved and the boys love it when it get lit every night with tea lights in. I think they are going be sad when we have to throw it away. The boys helped decorate the home with spooky decorations and the eldest went to a Halloween fancy dress.

Hope you had a fun week!
