Minion Mania In Our House

From the very moment that the boys watched the Minion movies they loved them and everything about them. They are funny little yellow characters which act silly and this is what they found so funny. I have lost count the amount of times that we have watched the films but they are still going strong in our house and I can't see a time in the near future when they will be getting old or boring.

When I was asked if we would like to review some Minion products I of course had to say yes, knowing how much the boys would love them. When a big box arrived I didn't have a clue what it was as I had forgotten that I had said we would like to review them. On opening the box I was gobsmacked with how much was in there and couldn't wait for the boys to get home to open them up and start playing.

The toys which we were sent to review were Fireman Lucy, Minion Kevin, Bob, Minion Dave, a teddy Minion and a Dancing Bob. 

Dave and Kevin both had a launcher which was so easy to use and because they both had one the boys had a ball firing them at each other. They are such sturdy toys that have been well made so they can take a lot of playing with by a 3 and 5 year old.

Fireman Lucy was also a brilliant hit as you could change her outfits, and it was very simple to do for little hands. You could have her bun on, or you could change it to a head piece that you see some of the minions wearing in the films. As we have watched the films so much all the toys that we received the boys could relate to and were easy to play with.

Bob and the minion cuddly toy have also been played with many a times, even though they don't do anything they get added into the play with other toys. With Bob you can take his royal cloak off and one his arms, the cloak fits on the other Minions so it has been on all the other characters since we received them.

I have to say that the biggest hit had to be the dancing Bob! He interacts with the boys by dancing and talking when they talk to him which when you are 3 & 5, even for myself and my husband, this is brilliant. He then sings and dances around the room when has been great fun to play with from all by all the family. You start him off by pressing a button on his foot and from there he will dance and sing 3 different songs, which he does on the request of the boys as he will respond to their voices.

These toys are firmly in our toy box and are played with on a daily basis and as you can see from the picture above, they bring a lot of happiness to the boys!

The Stunning JORD Wood Watch

I have had the same watch now for over 6 years and it has been on my wrist nearly everyday, apart from a few weeks when the boys were newborns as I thought I would scratch them with it. If I don't have a watch on my wrist I feel naked and a little bit lost, I think this may be a little bit of a control thing and the fact I need to know the time. 

All of the time.

When I was contacted by JORD wood watches and asked if I would like to review a watch I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to update my watch after so many years. While looking through their website at the women's watches they had so many beautiful ones to choose from but in the end I went for the FRANKIE 35 series, Zebrawood & Navy. The combination of the colour of the wood and the navy looked beautiful so couldn't wait for it to arrive.

When it arrived it came in the most stunning wooden box with the watch secured around a pillow. The packaging makes such an impact that it would make a beautiful gift for someone special. The watch was everything I thought it would look like, it was even more beautiful in real life. Upon getting it out of the box I couldn't get over just how light the watch was, considering it was made from wood. It is that light that you would even forget that it was on your wrist at all, but that wasn't going to happen to me as all I kept doing was staring at it! And flashing the beauty of it around.

I have had so many comments on the watch since wearing it as it is such a unique watch and not one you would see everyday. It goes with any outfit, be it on the school run or if I am going on a night out with friends. It really does fit so perfectly on my wrist and even with the face being a dark navy, it is still so clear and at a swift glance I get to see the time.

Cosy Pyjamas from Sense Organics

The boys are very much like me and love their pyjamas, they would happily stay in them all day if they were allowed. And some days we do! So with this being said I am always on the look out for cosy and snuggly pyjamas that are soft on their skin and comfortable, as thats what everyone wants from pyjamas right?!

I was contacted by Sense Organics and asked if we would like to review some of their products and on looking at their website the boys organic cotton pyjamas were the best fit for us. We chose the Grey Stripe Peter Pan pyjama set for Noah and the Reindeer Print Teal, Long John for Finley. The sizes I chose were 3-4 and 5-6 with Noah being 3 and Finley being 5.

They arrived not long after I had let them know our choices and they were everything you could ask for in pyjamas, soft and roomie so that during the night they weren't restricted.  The sizes I had gone for were perfect for the boys. The fabric is 100% organic cotton so this explains the softness of the pyjamas. The designs were gorgeous and I couldn't wait to get the boys in them to try them out.

That night after the bath they put them on and were in love with them as much as I was, they even sat nicely to have their photos taken which is a first, along with some silly playing too!

They have been the boys favourite pyjama sets to go to when asked to chose their pyjamas of a night and they wash brilliantly, which is a good thing as they have been worn so much!
