We were lucky to be sent the Frozen Elsa’s Magic Snow Sleeve for Miss A to test out. One excited little girl! She is mad about Frozen. She couldn’t wait to play with this. We did let her use it it indoors but the silly string sticks to the walls and ceiling. It is an outdoor job. 

So what is this addition to the forever growing Frozen merchandise? Well I have already mentioned silly string, so that’s what this sleeve does..squirts silly string to make the child feel like they have got magic powers and let them pretend they have got the powers to squirt snow/ice out of their hands!

So what do I think of it? I think it is rather good. Miss A loves it. The only thing is the silly string can blocks for fun. That is frustrating for the both of us. I can’t work out how to easily unblock it either. A bottle that can squirt water is provided as well, when the silly string canister is empty. This, although messier, would be more reliable.

There is also a fabric glove provided so that can be worn without wearing the part that shoots silly string/water. Miss A loves this as she has something to wear indoors. Really looking forward for the weather to get better as I can see Miss A being out there running having fun with this regularly!

Here’s a little video of Miss A having fun..making ‘worms’

 

You can find more about the Frozen Elsa’s Magic Snow Sleeve on Flair’s website.

The dress that Miss A was wearing in the video and photos was from Rubies.

Can’t wait to see Frozen Fever, a new short film out 27th March. Miss A will be so excited!

 

 

St John Ambulance – The #Chokeables.


 

A short time ago, St John’s Ambulance released a video with key information about what to do if your child is choking. I must admit, I would panic if either of my children was to choke…initially. However watching this video, I would be a little bit calmer. I really need to do a first aid course. I am mad not to of done one beforehand. Absolutely crazy.

This short, memorable video, The Chokeables, features the voices of David Walliams, David Mitchell, Johnny Vegas and Sir John Hurt. It’s key purpose is to show what to do to help a choking baby.

St John Ambulance has revealed that four-fifths of parents (79%) wouldn’t know the correct technique for saving their baby from choking despite it being a major fear (58%) and 40% having witnessed it.

The research also showed that:

  • 53% of parents said knowing first aid would help them feel better prepared and less scared
  • Of those who said they knew how to save a choking baby, only 29% knew the correct, recommended technique. Nearly three quarters of parents (71%) selected the wrong answer when given multiple choice options.
  • 39% of parents think choking is the most important first aid skill to have as a parent
  • Of the parents who’d witnessed their baby choke, 77% said their baby choked on food, 14% on vomit, and 9% on toys. Other causes included coins, mucus/phlegm, marbles, and pen lids

So it is a very important video to watch! And has reminded me to book a first aid course!

nib nibs bite size straws review

xl_mininibs_cheddarchilli

I was send a selection of nib nibs straws to try out. Most of them was consumed by my other half and daughter. They loved them, I liked them too but didn’t really get a chance to have more than one per pack!

They are tasty. I would like them to have a little bit more flavour than what they have, but that’s not to everyone’s liking. I think that if they were more flavoursome, Miss A wouldn’t be so keen on them. So perhaps for keeping it as a snack for the whole family, they are fine the way they are.

I would class these snacks as a treat as they cost £1.79 at the moment which for a savoury snack that doesn’t last very long in this house, is a rather expensive snack to buy.

However I will be buying again as they did go down well with me, Miss A and my other half. So which is my favourite? The chilli ones! They were rather yummy! I think all three of us liked them the most.

They only seem to be stocked in Booths if you live in Preston, like I do but you can also buy them at Aga Foodhall.
