I have thoroughly tested this game, and really enjoyed laughing at the people playing it in front of the camera. And the blue magical pinging wands have taken a great deal of flailing and prodding. I have tried it with a two year old, a twenty two year old, and a class full of sixteen [...]

Moon Sand, never heard of the stuff, but Destruction Testa knew about it from his nursery and opened the box himself (slight damage ensued). You need to use the Candy Shop Box as part of the imaginative place to play sweet shops in so open it carefully or the ‘edges’ which are pink moulded plastic actually come [...]

The final creative toyology of the day! I’ve never managed to make one of these models so that it looked anything like the box. The plaster of Paris has always let me down with a strategically crappy air bubble. So this is a challenge. Luckily I have two very creative helpers, and the shaker maker [...]

The Galt cute cupcakes are tiny! Very tiny indeed, I am just making one, to demonstrate the kit, and so far after the easy bit of mixing up the plaster of paris I have noticed bubbles. There are bubbles in the plaster even though I mixed it smoothly and so I don’t think my cakes [...]

Today we are testing out the Tonka toy that arrived in our box last week. It has been set up in the front room since TRU ThursDay! And it has had a great deal of use, because I’ve packed up the Chuggington very cunningly. Now destruction Testa himself is not feeling so well, so the task has fallen [...]

This is the campest toy yet. It really does fly the rainbow flag with pride. If you are wondering why I’m saying this you have got to hear the voice of the lovely ‘Mr Colour Maker’. I’ll attach a wav for you to have a listen. I’ve looked on some other reviews and everyone mentions the [...]

WHY THIS IS A SIMPLY GREAT TRAIN SET : This is a much better train set for Destruction Testa. He actually plays with it rather than watching it go round and then dismantling the track. In fact today I’m going to buy some more sections of Chuggington interactive world, I must admit that this is [...]

The girls were really excited to open it and the package was really easy to open – no fiddly bits.   Mia (9) was reading the instructions and said “wow” because it was multi-coloured as well as changing colours.   Girls have seen it advertised on the TV and liked it and the advert is [...]
