Now that Spud goes to a Pre School that is attached to the local Primary School, scooters are EVERYWHERE. I think about 70% of children now scoot to school and the school even have designated scooter parking. Of course as any 3 year old would, Spud decided that he wanted to join in on the action. Every time we asked him what he wanted from Santa he would say a scooter. Santa came early for Spud when in November last year a sparkly new Mini Micro Scooter arrived addressed to him.
I remember reading the Hobbit at school and absolutely loving it. With that came a love for The Lord of the Rings movie franchise. Imagine my excitement when I heard that The Hobbit was being made into a movie being released today (13th December 2012) Along with any new movie their is always memorabilia, from ti-shirts to toys to puzzles and Ravensburger haven’t let me down. We got sent the Panoramic 1000 piece Hobbit puzzle to have a go at and boy has it been a challenge.
The one problem that we face on a day to day basis is where to store the Boys wooden train sets. We don’t have the space for a big fancy train table and I like to keep all the pieces in one place so bits don’t get lost. Big Jigs have come up with the perfect solution. The Big Jigs Railway Station Carry Set offers a fantastic track with railway building which transforms into a brilliant carry case to store all of the pieces. When Harry at Timeless Toys asked Spud and Spike to review the Big Jigs Railway Station Carry Set they were thrilled!
When www.playhouses.co.uk asked if we would like to review the Rocket Play Tent I knew I would get an obscene amount of brownie points from the boys so didn’t even hesitate with saying yes. When it arrived I was quite shocked with how small and light the box was, knowing that it was going to be 1.1m wide and 1.4m tall!
