Disney Pixar Cars 3 Posh Paws Soft Toys Review

This week we are having a Disney Pixar Cars 3 Takeover on our blog to celebrate the new movie being released at the cinema on Friday 14th July. To help us celebrate Posh Paws sent us a selection of soft toys to enjoy. We received a large Cruz Ramirez, Medium sized Jackson Storm and two claimable characters, Mater and Guido.

Disney Pixar Cars Are Back In Town

The movie Disney Cars has a special place in our hearts as it was the first movie big J ever watched at the cinema. It wasn't the first movie we went to see, that was Happy Feet. We didn't actually get in to screening for that one as he was too scared but that's another story. So Disney Cars was a part of our lives for a long time until big J grew out of the toys and the movies. It was a 'Toy Story 3' moment, you know when Woody and Buzz are preparing themselves for the attic, we packed up the cars and playsets and off to the loft they went. It's was so sad when they went up and I honestly didn't think they would see the light of day again.

Casdon Minimarket Till Review

Little J absolutely loves playing shop and cafe. Out of all the role play activities he has they are his two favourites. He has always loved numbers so anything that involves numbers of any sort is always a winner. When we were sent the Casdon Minimarket Till to review I knew he would love it as soon as I read it has a built in calculator.

Paw Patrol Jumbling Tower Review

Little J absolutely loves Paw Patrol and because of his increasing love of games I knew he would like the Paw Patrol Jumbling Tower game by Spinmaster. When it arrived I realised the game was just like Jenga, a game I just love. If you have never played it before you really are missing out.

Half Shell Heroes Mutant Loader Vehicle With Mikey Review

I have always said that little J absolutely loves playing with anything that has wheels, cars, bikes, trucks you name it he will play with it. Since starting nursery he has become interested in super heroes and action figures too so when we were given the chance to review the Half Shell Heroes Mutant Loader Vehicle I knew he would love it as it is two of his favourite things combined.

Jamie Raven Sleight Of Hand Magic Set Review

You may have read that recently we went to see Jamie Raven live on stage in Southport. For those that don't know who he is, Jamie came runner up in the 2015 Britain's Got Talent final. He narrowly lost out to Jules and Matisse by just 2 per cent of the vote. We remembered his performances and loved watching him so we were quite excited to see his live show. He mentioned that he would be releasing a range of magic trick sets soon and both Daddy and I got excited as we both love magic. We have had so many magic sets over the years and they are so much fun. For the past few weeks we have been trying out Jamie Raven Sleight Of Hand Magic Set which is one of the four sets that has been released recently.

Giant Gazillion Giant Power Wand Review

Now that the weather has started to improve and the days are getting longer we have been sorting out the summer toys ready for the late nights and longer weekends.  This weekend we wanted to try out the Giant Gazillion Giant Power Wand as Little J loves bubbles and especially big bubbles that he can chase around the garden.

Stickle Bricks Big Red Bucket Review

A few weeks ago we were asked if we would like to review Stickle Bricks - Big Red Bucket. I read the email and smiled to myself because I absolutely love Stickle Bricks. Yes, I know I am an adult and I know the idea was for little J to give them a try but I love Stickle Bricks so the answer was a big fat yes. I'm guessing a lot of my readers around a similar age as me must have played with Stickle Bricks when they were younger, I know I did. For those that didn't, oh my goodness you missed out on some serious building, sticking, stacking fun.

Doc McStuffins Medical and Doctor's Role Play Set Review

Little J loves Doc McStuffins and he has done since he was a baby. He has all the stuffed animals and he will sit and watch Doc every day on Disney Junior. Now he is older he understands Doc more and what she does. For those that don't know Dottie 'Doc' McStuffins is a six year old girl who fixes' toys with a little help from her stuffed animal friends. A few weeks ago we were sent Doc's Medical set and Doc's Role Play Set to review so you can imagine how happy little J was.

Chad Valley Underwater Rescue Base Review

You may know already that last year we were chosen to be on the Chad Valley Play Panel. It was so exciting for us as we love Chad Valley and obviously we were very honoured to be given such an amazing opportunity. Over the last few months we have received some amazing toys including Chad Valley Wooden Police and Fire Station and Chad Valley Airport. We also gave our readers the chance to win Argos vouchers. I am sad to say that we have just received our final package for review.

Schleich Wild Life Starter Set Review

You may remember that last year we reviewed the Schleich Farm and how much we loved it. We still do and out of all of little J's toys this really has been played with the most and it is still in perfect condition. Quality is everything when it comes to toys, obviously you want them to be enjoyable but they also need to be durable. Last week we received a Schleich Wild Life Starter set which includes 4 animals. Little J is really enjoying playing with his animals at the moment and it wasn't long before they were introduced to his lion playset.

The Lion Guard Hyena Hideout Playset Review

Little J was so excited to receive the Lion Guard Hyena Hideout Playset to review. As you probably already know we are huge Disney fans and we love watching The Lion Guard Series, which is a spin off from the movies The Lion King. We already own a Lion Guard Defend The Pride Lands Playset so little J is happy to have a 'bad guys' playset too.

Zapf Creation Baby Born Unicorn Review and Giveaway

 As I am in a house full of boys I did wonder whether dolls and prams would ever be something I would get the chance to play with as a Mum. I would never force toys on the boys so unfortunately when big J was younger he just wasn't interested in that side of playing he was more interested in computer type toys. One of the things I love about little J is that he will play with all toys. Cars, dolls, blue or pink it's all the same to him which I think is fabulous. When we received the Baby Born Unicorn he was over the moon, he loved it from the first moment he saw it.

Chad Valley Airport Playset Review

Just before Christmas we got a special delivery from Chad Valley. As we are part of the Chad Valley Play Panel, little J was sent the Chad Valley Airport Playset to try out. It was perfect timing as little J was getting fed up waiting for Santa to bring him new toys. Little J absolutely loves everything that involves cars, planes or trains so the Chad Valley Airport Playset was the perfect choice.
