The Littlest Reindeer Review & Giveaway

Christmas is coming and we can’t wait! We watched our first Christmas film the other day. You may have seen us shouting about it on Twitter. It definitely put us in the festive spirit and we are now planning to watch only Christmas films until the big day. 😊 The Littlest Reindeer is a perfect example of a heart warming Christmas film. Blitzen has been pulling Santa’s sleigh for many years and the time has come for him to retire. [click here to read on]

Why is Foster Care Needed?

Unfortunately, the numbers of ‘looked after’ children in England are currently over 72,000. The setting that best meets the needs of these children is foster care.

Zuru Smashers Review & Giveaway

The perfect toy for Halloween is here. Bob has had so much fun reviewing the new Zuru Smashers SERIES 2. She loves blind bags and all of the little toys that come in them. We have had many different types of these in the past but none of them have been as fun to open as these. To open the Smashers you have to literally smash them.

I may have mentioned this many times before but I hate clothes shopping! Don’t get me wrong I love getting new clothes, I just hate trying them on in little changing cubicles and getting stressed because they don’t look nice in the horrendous mirrors. I much prefer spending time choosing clothes online, having them delivered to my door and trying them on in the comfort of my own bedroom. On the rare occasion that I do go clothes shopping, I [click here to read on]

Fuzzikins Fun

Bob has hijacked my You Tube channel. The Crumby Mummy has now been changed to Molly Bob Reviews. She is having lots of fun making videos and reviewing toys.

I had never heard of Fuzzikins before but they sounded great. They are little animals with fuzzy skin, similar to Sylvanian Family fur. You can [click here to read on]

Hotel Transylvania Fun

Bob loves Hotel Transylvania! We have already seen the first 2 films more times than I can count and we can’t wait to watch Hotel Transylvania 3. Bow loves it too. One of his first phrases was, ‘Blah, blah, blah.’ When we were asked if we would like to review some toys from the new film, Bob was over the moon! She loves making You Tube videos. She recently hijacked my You Tube channel and it is now called Molly [click here to read on]
