We're On The Chad Valley Play Panel and Giveaway

Edit this post
Chad Valley Play Panel Ambassador Badge
I am so excited and honoured to let you all know that we have been chosen once again to be part of the Chad Valley Play Panel. I mentioned last year just how much we love Chad Valley toys and how Argos and Chad Valley were a huge part of our childhood. I think everyone I know would spend the lead up to Christmas writing out their Christmas lists from toys in the Argos Catalogue. I used to write out the product codes too. Chad Valley have been making toys for over 150 years and I really do hope they continue to make toys for little ones for many more.

Edit this post

You may have read recently that we were chosen to be one of the Super Wings Ambassadors for this Summer. We absolutely love the Super Wings programme on Cartoonito so little J was very excited to receive a range of toys to play with this Summer. We received the Super Wings Airport, remote Control Jett and transforming characters both large and mini.

We Are Part Of The Netflix Stream Team

Edit this post

When we were contacted by Netflix to ask us to be part of the Netflix Stream Team I was so excited. Mummy and I absolutely love watching movies and tv programmes but like most people we find everyday life takes over and it’s just impossible to sit down and watch live tv. We would rather watch movies at a time that suits us and we also love to watch tv programmes as boxsets so there is no long wait in-between episodes.

#OurSummerDays Day 25 Our Amazing Time at Lollibop 2014

Edit this post
I have never been to a festival or a big weekend concert, so when I got the chance to attend Lollibop I jumped at the chance. It is the festival for little people and perfect for me, daddy and my monkeys. 

We were away the week before Lollibop so we headed down the east coast on the Friday ready to attend on Saturday. We were tired from the week but every bit excited at all the great acts and activities to see and do. 

When we approached the entrance to Lollibop there was a huge traffic queue but it went quite quickly. I thought we would be stuck for hours but we were in and parked up with 30 minutes which wasn't so bad. 

The car park was a huge field with lots of staff directing traffic. We parked in the VIP section, we found a space very quickly and were ready to start our day.

I'm a Lollibop Festival Ambassador

Edit this post
I am so thrilled to be invited to this years Lollibop Festival as an Ambassador. I have never been to Lollibop before but after reading some amazing reviews and stories from previous years, we all cant wait.
Hatfield House is host to this years Lollibop and it looks stunning. The entertainment line up is jam packed and after having a good read through all the guests, Mummy 2 Monkeys have picked their favourites and must see's.

We absolutely love Justin. I remember watching Something Special when big J was only little. He loved it especially Mr Tumble. Now we have little J, he loves Mr Tumble to and I know we will all be excited to see him live on stage.
Again this is something we use to watch with big J when he was little and it's nice to know it is still popular today. I love the songs from the show and we own the Lazy Town album somewhere so I'll have to dig it out to get us ready for the show.

We recently went to visit Thomas at the East Lancashire Railway (which you can read about here) and it was such a great and fun day out so we can't wait to see Thomas again.

I love Disney but have no idea what this is. I am hoping it's a show of some sort but whatever it is I can't wait.

We have seen Titan in Liverpool and in Butlins. He is amazing and the idea of Titan is so clever. We got quite close in Liverpool and he sprayed everyone with water which was funny. 

This is one for big J. Football mad so we will be paying a visit to this. I'm hoping it's soccer skills or something similar.

Well that's just a few of our favourites but there is so much more available to see and do. For a full line up visit here
