I cannot be the only person who feels this way, but kids toys now need a ridiculous amount of batteries. It’s not one or two. It’s three, or four, or even more. So I asked Varta if they could help. I’ve worked with them before using the amazing power packs they make, so I figured Varta Rechargeable Batteries would be perfect.
This all started when I bought L a toy at Christmas that flagged up a warning before I completed the purchase. I was warned that this toy required 4 AA Batteries and 4 AAA Batteries. Yes one toy needed 8 batteries.
As you know we are big fans of Lumie here. I have been using the Bodyclock Iris for quite some time and husb has been using the Active 250 for longer. When we found out about the new Lumie Luxe 700 we couldn’t wait to try it out.
Now in quick terms the Luxe does everything all the other bodyclocks does but without the aromatherapy function of the Iris but improving the music function of the Active 250 by adding Bluetooth Speakers, not just a Radio.
You may remember earlier in the year I ran a competition giving away a FixMeStick with a one year subscription to the service. At the time I hadn’t had a moment to try mine out, but now it’s had some good use, I thought I’d share my opinions.
FixMeStick is a virus removal tool. It works differently to Anti-Virus software and provides additional protection and in some cases will be the only way to remove a virus.

I first ran this review back in November 2015, but as I am still using the Iris every single day and we have since added the Active 250 to our collection, I felt it was time to refresh it a little. Before I get into the joys of the Iris 500 I thought I’d share a little project Lumie are working on with Leeds University. Continue reading Lumie Iris 500 Bodyclock→

Don’t be put off the small size of The Adventure Suit. It is the biggest amount of fun you can find it such a small space.
The Adventure Suit is the first mini interactive book from augmented reality company Zappar. It’s a great way to combine reading with technology and game play. It could help get kids more excited about reading or just provide a new way to play.
Not that long ago I reviewed the GTech AirRam K9. I loved it. It has changed my cleaning life. I was way more excited about this vacuum cleaner than any sane person should be. Then I was invited to the launch of the GTech AirRam Mk2.
I’ll admit, I was on the fence about going. I didn’t know what they could do to make it any better and I didn’t want to trek all the way to London to find they had made 2 grams lighter, changed the colour or made the battery last an extra 30 seconds. But I was free that day and I love a day out in London, so off I went.
