Bunny Jump from University Games

With memories of Easter still in our minds and having recovered from any chocolate comas brought on by the copious amounts of these creamy sweet confections that we had consumed our thoughts slowly jumped back and forth reminding us of the fun filled weeks we had enjoyed.  With the Easter holidays now officially over and the normality of life setting in yet again were were pleased to bring with us something that all the family have had a chance to enjoy over the holiday period.  Okay, we might need to rephrase that slightly to include all except daddy as he has difficulty releasing his inner child where as mummy has the opposite problem of struggling to contain hers.  This bringer of fun and laughter takes the form of a game called Bunny Jump from University Games.  This was a recent addition to our toys collection (note how I said our!).

Bunny Jump is a fast paced game of luck that also tests reaction speed, patience and self control of those that are maybe not so great at losing (the least said about that the better).  We played this game for hours and hours and hours and have a fantastic time tugging at carrots and catching the cheeky bunny that jumped at us from its burrow when we least expected it to protect its carrots.  Watch out those as this little chap is pretty fast rather like our bunnies who felt that they should also make an appearance in the post.

This is such a simple game yet really great fun and it didn’t take long for the children to get into the swing of playing this.  They also became pretty good at catching that bunny when it decided to jump.  Mr Squishy also thought this was a great game and his giggles of laughter as well as the girls could be heard throughout the house.  Naturally I was in on the action too except for when I was taking pictures and a video for you guys so you can see how easy it is too play and how much fun it is!  After take 20 something we had a video that was acceptable to post – don’t ask how many days that took just be warned videoing kids isn’t an easy task!

We wanted to show everyone how much fun this simple game can be.  Here the girls will show tell you how to play and actually play the game too:

This was a winner with my family and something we play with almost every day!  The game is suitable for ages 4+ years and is for 2 to 4 players.  The SRP is £19.99 and this game can be found at Toys R Us, Argos, Tesco and Amazon.  I found this for £14.99 at John Lewis, Tesco Direct and Argos so I’d go with one of those to save a few pounds!

In an effort to share the fun as this really is a brilliant game I have one of these super toys to give away to one lucky reader.

New! Baylis and Harding Limited Edition Pink Prosecco and Cassis Range

As regular readers are aware I do like Bayliss & Harding products.  They are always beautifully presented and the product range is always varied and reasonably priced.  Imagine my excitement when I discovered they have a new limited edition signature collection with the most amazing sounding fragrance; Pink Prosecco and Cassis.  Not only does this fragrance sound absolutely exquisite, the packaging is simply fabulous too!!!  With rose gold metallic detail combined with a pretty baby pink these are bound to be a coveted gift.  There are some lovely items in this range including;

Pink Prosecco Hand Wash & Lotion Gift Set

Bay1

This set contains a 300ml Cleansing Hand Wash and 300ml Moisturising Hand Lotion which will not only leave your hands feeling soft and nourished they will also smell great too.  I scoured the internet to find the best place to get this which interestingly turned out to be Argos where it is being sold for just £5.99 which is reasonable for the size of the bottles, beautiful presentation and lovely scent.

Pink Prosecco 1 Wick Cloche

Bay2

What a beautifully designed candle.  This looks great and the picture really doesn’t do it justice.  The candle comes in the limited edition fragrance Pink Prosecco & Cassis and I can only imagine is a treat for the olfactory system.  Again we have the rose gold tones will look pretty against the light pink of the candle and the glass cloche will help preserve the fragrance when not in use.  The candle has a burning time of up to 30 hours.  This is a well thought out gift idea as the glass cloche can be reused with other candles.  Again Argos seemed to be the main seller for this candle and you will find it priced at £14.99.

Pink Prosecco 1 Wick Candle

Bay3

When it comes to candles you have a choice.  This candle is also as great and is nicely packaged.  It has the same gorgeous limited edition fragrance Pink Prosecco & Cassis.  The box is beautifully designed with the same baby pink and metallic rose gold.  The candle has a burning time of up to 30 hours and comes in a simple yet pretty glass holder.  This costs £8.99 and makes a lovely gift.  Yes you guessed it, I found this at Argos too.

Pink Prosecco 5 Piece Gift Set

Bay4

Isn’t this pretty!  This gift set has a selection of 5 products so you can try a few different items which is nice.  Again with the limited edition fragrance Pink Prosecco & Cassis this set is perfect for a pamper evening in.  The set contains a 300ml Shower Creme, 300ml Hand & Body Lotion, 150g Soap, 130ml Body Wash & an EVA Body Polisher.  This makes a great gift for someone you would love to experience a touch of indulgence.  What a great idea for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day or even a birthday.  Available from Argos for the bargain price of £9.99 (you get a third off at the moment) I would grab one of these soon as they are bound to sell out fast.

Pink Prosecco Ultimate Bathing Treats

Bay5

I love the presentation of this stunning gift set.  The box is large and sturdy and I love that you can reuse it as it makes the perfect keepsake where you can keep cosmetics, nail varnishes, hair accessories and much more.  I managed to get my hands on one of these gorgeously scented sets.  The fragrance is light and not at all overpowering.  In the set you will find a 300ml Shower Creme, 300ml Body Lotion, 130ml Body Wash, 100ml Body Butter & Bath Soak Crystals.  This has to be my favourite Baylis and Harding product to date!

You will find this gift set for £14.99 at Argos.

Kids Parcel Review & Giveaway

Little ones love opening presents and it’s great fun to watch them and the excitement on their face when they discover the contents.  Picking what to give as gift can be very hard work especially for those that don’t have children yet and for those with children or have children of a different gender or age from those they are buying for.  Sometimes it’s easier to let those that have a knack for buying for children and know what’s appropriate do the hard work.  This is where a new company called Kids Parcel can help.  Kids parcel is a relatively new company that puts together Mystery Surprise Gift Boxes for children based on their age and gender.  These guys are so confident in their toy selection ability that they offer a 100% money back guarantee if the box your little one opens doesn’t make them smile.  If you like the idea and still want a box rather than getting a refund you can opt for another box, the choice is yours.

The box arrives addressed to the child for whom it is for which is a lovely touch and one that my girls were very excited about as they rarely get post.

So what was in our box?

We did a video to show you what the girls discovered in their box.  Within each box you can write your own message which of course makes the box that bit more special for the child.

There are different examples of toy boxes to choose from on the site and each will include at least 5 surprises.  Themed boxes are also available for those that like Disney or Star Wars.  Boxes cost £29.99.  Delivery is free which is great and the box looks great in relation to the products and number of products included in the parcel.  I decided that I should delve deeper and find out what the prices of the individual items were, hey you know me I like to do my research.

These were the products featured in our box.

parcel1I found the prices for each item to work out the overall value for money of the kids parcel.

Bugsy Malone DVD £8.99

Staedtler Colouring Pencils £3

Dotty Beanie Boo Soft Toy £4.99

Paint your own Tsum Tsum £5

Doh Vinci Picture Frame Kit £6

Bounce Animals Game £5.99

Total £33.97

£33.97 – £29.99 = £3.98

If you take into consideration that you are not paying for delivery and you are saving on the cost of the overall products included in the box the box is really good value.  It has a varied range of items to keep little ones happy.

What do you think guys, would your little ones love a kids parcel?

If the answer to your question is yes then why not enter to win one!

One lucky winner will be sent a super Surprise Kids Parcel just by entering this great competition on my blog.
