See Pinocchio Brought To Live This Christmas At The Old Rep.

Yesterday we had a lovely afternoon at The Old Rep in Birmingham watching  Pinocchio on stage at the theatre. Who doesn’t love an afternoon at the theatre laughing and watching a fantastic show for all ages. 


The warm cast was absolutely magical and both the kids really had a fun time watching the tale of Pinocchio and the adventures he entailed.

This adaptation of the beloved tale by Carlo Collodi follows a curious and mischievous puppet called Pinocchio on his journey to discover what it truly means to be 'a real boy'. Follow the heart-warming adventure that Pinocchio shares with his father, a lonely toymaker named Geppetto, and a whole host of other characters, including the Blue Fairy and Candlewick.


Fall in love with Pinocchio this Christmas as you witness the young puppet venture out from the safety of his father's workshop, finding himself in a series of precarious situations: narrowly escaping the clutches of Mangiafuoco's Puppet Theatre, the depths of the ocean and the Land of Toys. 

The show is on at The Old Rep Theatre until the 30th December 2018.

Pairfum Reed Diffuser - Perfect Christmas Stocking Filler

Looking for a perfect present or stocking filler for someone special. Check out the Pairfum reed diffuser. With over 19 different scents to choose from bring some elegance in to your home. We choose the innocent vanilla which smells absolutely divine. 


The 100ml fragrances are made with natural essential oils and will fragrance your home for around 3-5 months, better than the typical 3 months for reed Diffusers as they are natural oil serum they are completely Vegan and Eco-friendly. 

The PAIRFUM Reed Diffuser uses a highly fragrant and natural perfume oil serum (instead of the usual solvents), which is much healthier for your family than the average aroma diffuser (especially cheap scent diffusers)

The round Luxury glass decanter with frosted design with decorative chrome collar. The extra long black rattan reeds make this diffuser great for larger rooms and they are a great alternative to the smaller wooden type ones. Regulate the fragrance intensity and longevity to your taste by using more or less reeds.

Pull My Finger Game From Jakks Pacific Review

Lexie has asked for a whole bunch of games on her Christmas list this year. We have the odd few games but normally the kids play them then after one use a piece goes missing. So we have been looking for easy games without millions of bits you need to play. 

Lexie hadn’t heard of Pull My Finger  as was shocked when we received it that it farts and it bum inflates. Even so she was really excited to play. So the game is literally what it stays on the box pull Mr Buster’s finger until he farts and the bum deflates. If you deflates Mr Buster’s bum you are the loser and you start again.

The game itself was easy to set up. You slot the monkey ( Mr Buster) in to the green base, attach the bum and the tail to the area then you are ready to play. 

Spin the wheel then you are ready to go. You get an extra bum inside the pack in case it pops when it’s fully inflated. 

Both kids thought the game was hilarious to play, and they even had a go to see how big the bum got before it deflated. 

The game itself is super easy to play, it kept the kids entertained.  The round of games are short which keep their attention. It’s a simple and great and amusing game for kids. If your children are obsessed with bums and farts it’s definitely the game for you. 

Suited for 2+ players aged 4 years+. 

RRP £19.99

The National Pet Show At The NEC Birmingham

Yesterday we was invited to the National Pet Show at the NEC  and we all had an amazing time. The kids loved being able to see and touch lots of different animals. 

The show is a day out for animal lovers, who can view and meet hundreds of different animals, from dogs and cats to snakes and fish. The National Pet Show is returning to the NEC for its 5th year, and is set to be bigger and better than ever before!


After meeting the animals, you can watch animal action displays, listen to talks from the experts, experience interactive demonstrations and shop for the festive season! 

This year Professor Noel Fitzpatrick, The Supervet, will inspire young visitors at his specially built Noel’s Ark. This will take place next to the Kids Zone, creating a fun filled area for kids to enjoy animal handling, story-telling and book signings alongside other fun activities!

The kids loved the Fluval & Exo Terra Animal Zone And we stayed for the scary, scales & fangs talk with TV presenter and Biologist Dr Mike Leahy. Plus the mini beast talk which was fantastic. Raiden loved getting close and personal to all the animals.
