Today we ventured out to get our final uniform bit we decided to go to Marks and Spencers as usually they have a good selection, and its relax, the children really did not want to be there and someone had totally trashed the trouser rails for love nor money I could not find the sizes I needed the children were really quite and I was amazed that this really was not the usual moaning shopping experience ....
I heard a few people saying have you seen those mannequin children they are real children and people were going to have a look including staff, it suddenly dawned on me my children were quiet and not moaning but where had they disappeared to this is what I found.
The fact that they went RAAAAA !!! to people as they walked passed had the whole shop laughing and kept them very quiet while I shopped.
Love my children's personalities so so much.

Last year our family were very lucky to be chosen to be Toys R Us Toyologists, we had so much fun being part of the team we were really excited to apply again. Geoffrey giraffe has asked applicants to review a must have toy and being huge Lego fans the children decided that no home should be with out it so here's our review.....

Lego sets come with a really easy to follow booklet to make the model and give great step by step pictures to follow.
Lego friends is more for girls and is a group of 5 girls,you can get a beauty parlour, cars, dog shows and lots more very girly Lego sets, it's totally awesome so Sophie who is 9 has told me " it is pink and purple also lots of ponies and girl figures".
|Michael made a friend for Geoffrey|
We have all sorts of Lego, infact I really would not like to guess how many pieces we own and the children really never get bored, I love the fact that you can use you imagination and make so many different things, when the children first started getting Lego they found it difficult to understand that you do not just have to build the model on the box you can make anything you want but now they totally get it and we have so much fun.
The children spend hours playing with Lego and find it very rewarding its great for rainy days, I love to see any child use there imagination and to me that's what Lego is all about.
Lego prices start from as little as £1.99 and go up you can also buy and collect the different figures adding these to any of your child's creations.
Lot's of toys get released for a second time some a third, very few keep going for this length of time and I think Lego will be going for many many more years to come.
Our overall thoughts on Lego:-
Lego is brilliant and encourages children to be creative.
We have never had a piece of Lego break so it must be strong.
There is no boundaries with Lego, you can make anything from a nuclear powered flying saucers with a castle on top to a farm yard or zoo there is nothing with Lego that you cannot do.
