Sling Stix – Review & Competition

I’m always on the lookout for fun summer games I can play with L. We love being outdoors and running round and have no end of garden toys. I am always happy to add to his outdoor toy selection though, anything that keeps him outdoors is great in my book.

Wordsearch Junior Review & Competition

Wordsearch Junior is a great game from my favourite guys at Drumond Park. We’ve been lucky enough to get one to play with at home. I also have one to giveaway.

As it is aimed at ages 4+ and they have been very clever with the wordsearches themselves, meaning they are great for several different age groups.

Noddy Toyland Detective App Review

I know, I know. I’ve gone from never reviewing apps to doing two in close succession. You see whilst I’m happy for L to use my phone or a tablet I would like to expand his horizons away from YouTube Kids. So the Noddy Toyland Detective App really appealed to me.

Better yet they have also got a great bundle of kids games and puzzles for one of my lucky readers to win.  Continue reading Win a kids game and puzzle bundle from Jumbo Games

Crazy Claw from Drumond Park

We have been playing with Crazy Claw from Drumond Park recently, so I thought I would give you our verdict. Mine and L’s differ slightly on this one.

I’m going to start by pointing out this game is aimed at ages 5 and up. L is only 3. So I was always completely aware there may be parts of the gameplay he didn’t quite get and that maybe he wouldn’t be able to do it all.

Crazy Claw
I got one!!
