christmas was hard this year after a tough year but we made the most of it and had a lovely time im sure we will have lots of fun playing with all the toys and we will try our best to write down what we thought of all the things


Stink Blasters Stink Containment Truck

Were do i start with this one i would NOT  recommend buying for your own children as it does what it says STINKS it stinks so bad when thomas my 9 year old opened the box and michael my 6 year old was standing by him he actually vomited with the smell
thomas thinks its great as most 9 year olds would but the smell goodness it lingers all around the house so much so i have banned it from being opened indoors and taped the box so no smell comes out
The little men have holes in there mouths and you can squeeze them to let the different stenches out more and they are all stored inside the van which when opened you have never smelt anything so gross
all the figures have different names and can be collected
Tony Anchovy , Dog Breath Danny, Skunk Punk, Rotten Egg Ronnie , Lizard Lips Lenny, and Cauliflower Girl
I think most boys will love this toy and a great buy for someone elses children just BEWARE if you buying for your own

bop it so addictive

we came runner up in toyologist competition on face book and in our parcel BOP IT was there

bop it looks a bit something and nothing but we have found out simply how addictive it is for young and old it has a few settings our favourite being pass it
a varied age of children in our house decided to put it through its paces from age 5 to 13
and each of them loved it it has been continually played with including mum (secret bop it addict)
we found it great having 3 volume settings as when playing solo you dont need it loud but when a few children getting excited about it laughing and shouting definatley need blast it
its very durable and has been dropped a couple of times by a 3 year old playing it
this really has been one of the christmas favorites in our house and for a very reasonable price

bop it states from age 8+ but my youngest who is only just 6 loves it so i would say it would be suitable for younger children as well
great family fun for all
we will defiantley be trying more from the bop it range after using this 

scotch tape pop up dispenser

WOW this simple gadget was given to me by to test and i really cant belive how something so simple can be so effective it was an absolute life saver when wrapping all the christmas presents and birthday ones
no more fiddling with bits of cellotape and sissors for anyone whos seen the advert it really does work
every year i get that behind on wrapping i call in my wrapping fairy sister inlaw shelly but she was made redundant due to this new gadget
it more than halved the time and was great to use refills are very cheap to say the least
all you need to do is put this on your had and your away leaving hands free to hold the paper instead of fumbling round trying to get tape cut
i am in love with this and will treasure it definatley one for the kitchen drawers
