Epson EcoTank ET-2750

This is our 2nd Epson EcoTank, and it's safe to say we would never be without one.  It not only saves us money with more efficient use of ink, it also works gives us everything we need for our daily printing needs.

I work from home as an International Project Manager, I also have 4 children, 2 of which are teenagers - we have a very busy household, and a very busy printer. Thus, I need a reliable printer, a cost effective printer and one that gives good quality, Epson EcoTank printers have given us just that.

Schleich Bayala Mermaid

I have yet to be disappointed in the Schleich products.

They are beautifully made, extremely detailed, vibrant colors, and the sets are always designed so the individual pieces stay together without being stuck together, allowing you to play more interactively with them. Schleich encourages positively creative and imaginative play.


The world has gone crazy for Porgs since the release of the Last Jedi Start Wars Movie, and so has Jacob. 

Porgs are native to Ahch-To, where the Jedi order was founded,  these cute tiny creatures are an adorable addition and can be found on Luke Skywalker's little island. 

We were sent this cute and cuddly

Glimmies Aquaria

Summer is already a fan of Glimmies, the ittle star fairies that light up were a big hit for her, and, when we received the Glimmies Aquaria Glimsplash and additional Glimmies for review, she was super excited.

Prestige Flowers Mother's day

There's something quite exciting when receiving flowers. Whether they are sent by a loved one, or ordered for yourself, receiving a fresh bunch of flowers is

I'm very fond of flowers, even fonder when receiving them unexpectedly.  

It's a beautiful surprise because:


We were invited to be a part of the BABY born babysitter campaign by Zapf Creation. We received the iconic BABY born doll along with a few BABY born accessories.  Summer is really into her dolls at the moment, so I knew she would love to show me her babysitting skills.

The BABY born doll itself comes with an array of accessories, everything a child needs to get started with, including a nappy, sachet of food, baby bottle, dummy and dummy clip, hat and clothing and a feeding bowl and spoon. the BABY born doll has some fun real life functions like, being able to cry real tears, eat, drink and even wee! These functions allow the child to care for their doll and role play as a parent.

PJ Masks Team Heroes Board Game from Ravensburger

We've been trying out the new Team of Heroes PJ Masks board game! 

What's the game?

Romeo has let loose his robots to attack the PJ Masks base, thus, players must work and plan together to keep the robots away from HQ, whilst simultaneously disabling Romeo's evil Lab.

This is really a fun game, slightly different as you have to work together as a team rather than against each other, which was nice.

Project Mc2 Pixel Purse

Summer's a big fan of Project Mc2, she has a few dolls and watches the series on Netflix. 

What is Project Mc2?

Exclusive to Netflix, Project Mc2 is about four teenage girls who use their science know-how to be secret agents and save the day. The focus is on STEM studies and how they use it in ways to solve problems. Along with the Netflix series, there is a fab toy range, which are also designed to focus and encourage STEM.

Glam Goo Deluxe Pack

This half-term we've been Glam Goo'ing it.

What is Glam Goo?

You can make slime fashionably cool and have loads of fun with it. The Glam Goo Deluxe Pack includes everything you need to design your goo - you can mix in sparkles and colouring to make your slime unique and colourful - you can even add some scent to it. 


These are our first Hatchimals CollEGGitbles, and I didn't realise how excited Summer would be upon seeing them - she was super excited. I didn't realise she was aware what they were, but she was and she knew exactly what to do (thanks to the YouTube vid's she's been watching).

Since she has opened them, she has placed them in to one of her bags and carried them around with her constantly.  

Forth with Life

If, like me, you are scared of needles, and scared of blood, then this kit will probably be harder for you to do than it should be.

When I was invited to review Forth with Life, I thought, Yes, great idea, I'd love to see an insight into the condition of my health is.

Completely ignoring the fact that I am terrified of needles and rubbish when I see blood. I thought, these are small prick tests, I can handle that... pfft no problem.

Design a T-Shirt with River Island

Just before Christmas River Island sent us one of their white T-Shirts along with stickers, glitter and pens/paints and gave Jacob the challenge to make his River Island white T-Shirt to stand out from the crowd. 

Jacob loves challenges and especially anything where he gets to be creativity, and he enjoys messy activities, thus, I knew he would love this challenge, and he did.

Woooo, this is probably one of the coolest toys we have received. It's big, it's bold, it's a futuristic creepy crawly! And, Jacob absolutely loves it.

What is Meccaspider?

It's Meccano, thus, you have the fun and fulfilment of not only building it, but you also get to play with’s an interactive robot and incredibly cool.


Pokemon was much loved by my oldest son when he was younger, and now, his little brother is a big fan - I'm still kicking myself for throwing out all of Liam's old Pokemon cards, they would have been perfect for Jacob.
