Introducing the New Slither.io Toys

If you have children then you will probably be well aware of the great free to download game slither.io.  My girls and even Squishy like to play this fun game with the colourful snakes that grow larger in size as you progress.  60% of British under 14’s have already downloaded Slither.io and a whopping 124 million games…

Monster Truck Smash-Ups

Mr Squishy is your typical little boy.  He loves cars, trucks, trains and anything that belongs to his older sisters because if it’s good enough for them it’s good enough for him not to mention it’s fun being chased around the house apparently with them in pursuit screaming at him. Squishy was fortunate enough to…

Air Wars Battle Drones

Slime Time!!!

My girls love to play with slime.  We used to get these teeny tiny plastic eggs full with the gooey stuff which they loved and more recently they have been trying to make their own. My fridge has been filled with little pots of this and that with and without glitter and to be honest…

Num Noms Series 4 Dessert Tray

For those that missed it Num Noms series 4 have hit the supermarket shelves.  These are one of the most popular collectables on the market for anyone that was not aware although I am guessing most of you with children will be fully clued up and will probably have a healthy stock of these at…

Learning Times Tables The Fun Way!

I am really disappointed in the level of teaching at our school.  My eldest started Year 3 knowing almost all of her times tables due to a lot of hard work over the summer holidays in 2016, by the time she finished the school year in 2017 she barely knew half of them.  Times tables are…

Christmas – It’s the most wonderful time of the year, with presents, great food…
