Peppa Pig's Big Splash Live

Harry is a huge Peppa & George fan so I knew he'd be keen to attend the live show when I found out that it was heading to Norwich. My only concern was that he wouldn't sit still long enough as he's such a fidget-bum!

I needn't have worried. Peppa Pig's Big Splash encouraged children to not sit still. There was singing, dancing, shouting and jumping. From the minute the curtain arose (on time, I was pleased to note with a theatre full of impatient pre-schoolers!) Daisy and the puppeteers had the children enthralled and joining in. It was a high-energy show and the cast looked as though they were enjoying it as much as the audience.

Harry and his friend loved every minute of it but when I asked them what their favourite part was both said that it was the Muddy Puddle Jumping competition where everyone got wet…..and I mean everyone, not just those on stage!

Peppa Pig's Big Splash is continuing to tour the country throughout this year. If you've got a pre-school Peppa fan I can't recommend it enough. Take a look at the website here for dates & venues and to book tickets.

Ugglys Electronic Pup-pets from Character

Barf The St Bernard is one of the Uggly Pup-pets from Character.

It's ugly, it's gross, it's repugnant, it's covered in sick and snot, it makes disgusting (and rather realistic) noises…...and my children love it!

One of the boys snuck it into a family party recently and had everyone in stitches with its vile sounds. Yep, that's the level of humour my family have!

Open its mouth to make it burp, scrunch up the head to make it fart and squeeze it to make some even uglier faces. There are over 30 sounds and the dial on the collar changes the pitch and prolongs the sound.

All three of my children have had great fun playing with this toy and it has kept them amused for hours. 

If you want to keep your sanity this may not be the toy for your children but if you love toilet humour 
as much as they do, it's perfect!

Mmmmm, doughnuts!

No, I haven't turned into Homer Simpson, although my ever-expanding waistline would tell you otherwise!  

I was asked if we'd like to try a box of gourmet doughnuts from Jam Gou Dou and I knew that the children would never forgive me if I said "No" (as if I would have!!)

The next day this fab-looking box arrived by courier and we couldn't wait to get it open. Inside were twelve wonderful handmade chocolate doughnuts. We were sent delights such as; Double Trouble - A generous layer of chocolate sprinkles atop a smothering of special recipe Belgium chocolate ganache, Chilli Con Chocolate - Chocolate with subtly spicy chilli flakes & cayenne pepper, and the amazing Smorz  - Crisp chocolate topped with melted marshmallow and scorched to perfection.

Choices, choices…..
Perfect for a chocoholic
It was a tough decision but I went for Double Trouble. It didn't disappoint. The children tucked in to theirs and didn't leave a crumb. It didn't take many days for the doughnuts to mysteriously disappear! I did manage to sneak a small piece of a Smorz doughnut though and I really loved the melted marshmallow topping. I think it was Harry's favourite as he asked for more.

I asked the children to describe the doughnuts: Harry rubbed his tummy and said that they were "lishious", Molly described them as "epic, scrumptious and gooey" and Charlie thinks they were 'awesome and yummy'. I don't think I need to add anything to that!

The boxes of 12 doughnuts are great for a gift, guaranteed to be a winner in the office on cake day or would even make a lovely treat for yourself! With free delivery the only thing holding you back is deciding which box to go for.
