Here are some products that we have loved this month…
Bugs was sent this new Hot Wheels Super Speed Blastway set to review a few weeks ago and he has been having a blast playing with it. He is really competitive so loves the idea of having to race someone, it makes Hot Wheels a little more fun as he’s not just sat there watching a car go around a track.
This reminds me of a Dragster game that I had when I was little and I used to love that so much. One thing I would say is that it is disappointing that it only comes with one car, which means if you don’t have any other Hot Wheels cars then you can’t play it until you have another one. For me that is a big no-no, selling a product that ‘needs’ two cars but only supplies one.
Luckily we did have other cars and Bugs has had nothing but fun with this. The idea of the game is to be the first to knock out their finish flag as they fly around the track. It’s very simple to put together and take apart so you can store it in the box when not playing with it.
Who has the skills and the speed to cross the finish line first? Send your Hot Wheels flying on the Super Speed Blastway and pitting them against the competition until the finish flag decides who is the ultimate champion! Drivers launch up towards the grandstands so fast, they knock off the pit crew one at a time with every lap until the car in the lead activates the checkered flag for a grand victory. Kids will love the side-by-side racing action activated by two kid-activated slam launchers. Grandstands feature pop off characters activated by every completed lap around the speedway. Finish flag appears at the end of the race to reward the winner! Connects to other Hot Wheels track sets so kids can continue to build an entire world of racing thrills. Priced at around RRP £22.99

Limescale is a bit of a problem in my house, especially in my kettle and iron so I was rather pleased to be sent these fabulous products from Oust! I’ve been busy descaling ever since they arrived and am very pleased with how sparkling everything has come up!
The Drop-in-bag kettle descaler is my favourite as I have such trouble descaling the kettle but this removed all limescale in a matter of minutes! I didn’t know such a product existed and have always used lemon juice to descale but that always took hours!
So if you have a limescale problem do head over to www.oustdescalers.co.uk and find out how you can #OUSTyourhouse 🙂

Boo loves doing puzzles so was overjoyed when she was sent the Puzzle Club to have a look at. It has kept her busy these last few weeks and she is already wanting her next issue. She finds some of the puzzles challenging but I would say it is perfect for her age (8) and I will happily buy it for her.
Puzzle Club has been recently launched by the UK’s leading puzzle content provider, Puzzler Media and is a bi-monthly magazine for 7 – 11 year olds. It is the first magazine of its kind that is linked to the Key Stage Two National Curriculum. Puzzler Media has developed the title in conjunction with the world’s leading learning company, Pearson.
The magazine is a 64-page compendium of different puzzles and brain-teasers, from crosswords to wordmazes and sudoku puzzles, all designed to engage children and allow them to apply / learn school-learnt knowledge in a fun and less pressured way. It’s also a great way of keeping children occupied on long car, plane or train journeys, get them practising their handwriting, improving their pen skills, or for SATs and even 11+ exam preparation. The magazine is available to buy in WHSmiths, as well as all large supermarkets and good newsagents.
We are huge fans of Aveeno products! I have terribly dry skin with patches of eczema and Bugs has had awful eczema since he was very little. Aveeno has been wonderful for both of our skin and I would highly recommend you give them a try if you suffer from dry skin problems. My favourite is the Bath & Shower Oil, it leaves my skin feeling amazing!
Aveeno have just launched their second book “The Dry-ventures of Ellie and Eddie… Happy Skin Holidays” after the success of their first book. You can download both of the eBook’s here http://www.aveeno.co.uk/childrens-dry-skin they really have helped Bugs understand his skin problems and why I have to keep applying cream.
I’ve continued with my Charmed obsession on Netflix this month, it’s got a little bit samey so I’m not into it as much as I was, I broke it up a bit and watched the new Netflix series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt which is good fun! I’m really looking forward to the new Orange is the New Black series coming in June though!
I’m not doing too bad with my 2015 reading list; I’m on my 14th book of the year so far and although I’m not reading as much at the moment as I was back in January I am still on target to read 52 this year! I’ve just finished Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and am moving onto Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets next. I feel a bit blah about reading the Harry Potter books at the moment, it feels like I’ll never get through them and I didn’t enjoy the first as much as I thought I was going to but I’ll solider on and see how it goes 🙂
Well that’s all for this March, don’t forget to contact me soon if you have a product that you would like to see in April’s edition!
