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.
I like to take a bit of time off in December, what with it being my favourite month and all. So to treat you all, during November I have arranged an amazing prize for you all. A Christmas Hamper filled to bursting with cool things.
I’m going to start by saying a massive thank you to all the fab brands who got involved, I hope you’ll love everything as much as I do.

This month I have got an amazing prize for two lucky people thanks to the folk at Stag Bakery.
Each prize will include 1 flavour of each of the Sweet Straws (Apple & Cinnamon, Sour Cherry & Vanilla, Raspberry & Chocolate, Blackberry & Basil) and 1 flavour of each of the Dipping Crackers (Chickpea & Garlic, Green Pea & Ras El Hanout, Lentil & Biriyani).
So you’ve got a great savoury snack, followed by a delicious sweet treat. Perfect for entertaining or a cosy movie night in.
West Coast have initially launched three varieties of cracker which can be enjoyed as a snack, dip or accompaniment to a meal.
Lentil & Biriyani is made with Mathia flour and delicately spiced with traditional Indian flavours and works well with curry as an alternative to poppadoms. Inspired by North African cuisine, Green Bean & Ras El Hanout is made with Moong Dall Flour and Ras El Hanout spice so also makes a good accompaniment to tagines or couscous. Chickpea with Garlic is houmous-inspired made with Besan flour and is recommended to use serve with Middle Eastern dishes and dips.
Sweet Straws are a sweet-twist on traditional savoury straws, with four fruit-based flavours.
Apple & Cinnamon, a classic combination of a delicately spiced orchard fruit. Blackberry & Basil, a marriage made in berry heaven thanks to the delicate addition of basil. Raspberry & Chocolate, with a generous amount of raspberry pieces and distinct chocolate aroma. Sour Cherry & Vanilla, the sourness of the cherries perfectly complemented with sweet vanilla
Light, crunchy, buttery and hand-baked, the straws are a fantastic alternative to traditional sweet biscuits. They work equally well as an accompaniment or decoration to ice cream, yogurts or sundaes.
Pickin’ Chickens is a fun new game from Drumond Park. We’ve been lucky enough to get it early and have been testing it out at home. I also have one to giveaway.
As it is aimed at ages 4+ it should have been too much for L, but like most Drumond Park games we’ve been able to adapt the rules so he can play it now. Although with the little chicken counters I have had to keep a beady eye on him.
L has adored this game. I have actually had to hide it. The idea is simple, spin the wheel and uncover a chicken coop. Keep spinning until you’ve collected all four colours of chicken. The added fun part is the fox that springs from the middle. If he catches you then you have to give one chicken back. He loves the fox! Continue reading Pickin’ Chickens Review & Competition→
