Alphabet Dating - G is for The Greatest Showman


John and I have decided to do alphabet dating again this year though we are not doing the letters in order as it gets too complicated however we will only do a letter twice in a whole year. Our first alphabet date was to go and see The Greatest Showman in the Gallery at Odeon. I am a sucker for anything that is musical so this was a must see for me, Hugh and Zac were a pleasant bonus. John isn't so keen on this type of film even though he has sat through many musicals I have watched at home and he did watch La La Land with me that he enjoyed to some extent.

Giveaway - Teletubbies Big Hugs CD


We have mentioned on our blog before that we are huge fans of the Teletubbies and you may have read recently that we reviewed some Tiddlytubbies which are a new addition to the Teletubbies Dome and they are so cute. As parents we have been fans since big J was little, over 15 years ago. I absolutely love that they are still going strong and they have just released a new CD called Teletubbies - Big Hugs.

Tech Tuesday - Valentines Day on Netflix #StreamTeam


We don't really do anything exciting for Valentines Day, usually we will grab a takeaway and pick a movie to watch. We usually have to decide which movie a few days in advance otherwise we will end up scrolling through 100's of movies on Valentines Day deciding what to watch. This year we have Netflix so even more movies to choose from, however Netflix have provided us with a list of best Valentines Day films to watch for all types of romantics.

Tech Tuesday - Nintendo Switch : Do We Need Another Console?


The Nintendo Switch is being released on 3rd March in the UK.  With a price tag of £279.99 for the basic package it will be interesting to see how this fares with gamers. I remember buying the original Wii console not long after release.  It was expensive at the time, I can’t remember how expensive, but expensive enough for us not to have bought at initial release.  Honestly, with Wii for us did bring us years of enjoyment, mostly on Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort, but also with Wii party, played almost exclusively at Christmas - but so much fun.  Wii Fit was also a firm favourite - even it was just to tell me I have put another pound on.

La La Land Review - City of Stars, Are You Shining Just For Me?


La La Land was a film that I had wanted to see for a few months after seeing trailers online, reading about it on Social Media and although I had an idea of what it was about nothing could have prepared me for just how fantastic this movie is. Most of my childhood saw me acting out the dance scene from West Side Story in my front living room or singing Grease songs in front of the bathroom mirror. La La Land took me back to those memories and how good musicals were and how sad it is that they just don't make movies like that anymore, until now.

Teletubbies Magazine Review


When big J was growing up Teletubbies dominated our TV and also big J's toy box. He absolutely loved Teletubbies and had lots of Teletubbies toys including talking ones, a phone, books, even a Noo Noo that moved along the floor. Teletubbies were so popular, they were everywhere and you just had to love them. When the Teletubbies made a comeback I was so excited because little J is the perfect age and I knew he would love Teletubbies just like his big brother did. I wasn't wrong. Our house has been filled with various Teletubbies toys over the past 9 months and now little J has just received the Teletubbies magazine.

Peter Rabbit And Friends - The Tale Of The Great Breakout

Beatrix Potter and Peter Rabbit seem to be everywhere I look at the moment whether it's the classic tales or the new updated episodes which you can see on CBeebies. We are actually a fan of both and whilst the originals took me back to my childhood the bright and bold colourful Peter Rabbit and Friends is a big hit with little J.

Masha And The Bear DVD - How They Met

Friendship and adventure abound with the heart-warming tales of three year old Masha and her retired circus star friend, Bear, in their first DVD collection released by Abbey Home Media on Monday 25th April. We stumbled across Masha and the Bear just recently and little J loves it. It's actually really cute and after reading about it online I noticed Masha was voiced by Elsie Fisher who also voiced Agnes in Despicable Me.

Star Wars - The Force Awakens Film Review

Before I start I do want to say that I am not a huge Star Wars fan. I like Star Wars mainly because Daddy and big J like Star Wars. I play with lightsabers mainly because big J and little J like playing with lightsabers and I don't think I have watched the original trilogy all the way through. I was excited to see the new movie mainly because Daddy and big J were excited to see the movie. However after watching the film on opening day I do feel the need to write my opinion on probably one of the most anticipated and talked about movie of the year, Star Wars The Force Awakens.

Zu3D iPad App Review

Big J is always purchasing apps from the Apple App Store and it amazes me just how many different apps there are out there. Recently we were asked to try the Zu3D ipad app and I was looking forward to having a go at this because I have read about Zu3D before.
