Twozies Review

Twozies ReviewFans of small toys rejoice for there is a new range on the scene! Ok, seriously, if your child is into Shopkins or Num Noms or other such toys that range from pocket money prices upwards then your sure to know that they are highly collectible, affordable and fun. Lissylou loves nothing more than a blind bag toy and uses her pocket money to pick them up at the supermarket.

So when we heard about Twosies, a new collectible babies and pets toy, she was very excited.

Twosies have those all important blind bags, or as they are called, surprise packs, each one containing a baby Twosie and a pet. There are a massive 140 different babies and pets to collect. Your child can then find the matching baby and pet friends, creating hours of fun!

The larger sets, Twozies Fun Two-gether, contain two sets of babies and pets, a vehicle of some kind and a scene. These cute little sets were a massive hit with LissyLou and even C. He was pleased to see that Twozies can be for boys and girls. They both liked the characters and the vehicles. The playsets stack on top of each other for easy storage and they look very cute too.

C and Lissylou  share their thoughts on Twozies in this video review.

The Twozies surprise packs are £2.49 each and the Twozies Fun Two-gether playsets cost a very reasonable £14.99. Lissylou has already bought a further Twozies surprise pack with her pocket money, she loves them! You can find out more on the Character online Website

Have your children tried Twozies yet? What do they think?

We received the Twozies sets for the purpose of this review.

Cirque De Soleil Amaluna at intu Trafford Centre

Cirque De Soleil Amaluna at intu Trafford Centre Last night we attended the Premiere of Cirque De Soleil Amaluna at intu Trafford Centre. The show is held in a massive white big top in one of the carparks, but it doesn’t feel like it. Once inside you could be anywhere in the world, given the warm evening last night it even felt like we were somewhere exotic.

Cirque De Soleil Amaluna is a love story. Based on a mysterious island ruled by goddesses, the ‘girl power’ effect is strong throughout. The cast of beautiful, strong women and equally handsome and strong men will give you serious body envy and a little hot under the collar.

What strikes you first about Cirque De Soleil Amaluna is the dark, seductive set and live rock band, setting the scene for the show ahead. The resident ‘clowns’ help connect the scenes, creating some light entertainment and merriment, at times these change over scenes lasted a little longer than was preferable but understandably they allowed costume and scene changes.

Cirque De Soleil Amaluna offered a mix of stunning aerial wonders with amazing bar and floor acrobatics. We were stunned by the skill and performance of everyone involved. The Waterbowl and Teeterboard segments were particularly impressive, showing huge levels of skill and presentation. Fans of gymnastics will be amazed by the beautiful choreography and even if you aren’t massively interested you will be surprised by the strength and flexibility of the cast.

The children loved the show, they sat open mouthed for most of it and loved the music, comedy and beauty of the show. They were provided with seat boosters to help them see and this combatted even the very tall man who was sat a few rows down and would otherwise have stopped their view. It was a simple touch but very useful. Cirque De Soleil Amaluna is not scary, but it is dark and the music is loud at points. It was well suited to our 5yr old and 7yr old and kept their interest the whole way through.

We absolutely loved Cirque De Soleil Amaluna and would highly recommend it, it was truly incredible, properly out of this world. It’s on at intu Trafford Centre until October 9th and tickets are available from Cirque De Soleils website and tickets start from £17.

Num Noms and Bella Italia

We were recently invited to an event to see the new season two Num Noms and sample some food at Bella Italia.

Num Noms and Bella Italia

The event was filled with Num Nom themed toys, games and face painting. LissyLou  was quite taken with these cute little, scented toys. Having never played with them before her favourite thing about them was the fact that you can stack them. But more to follow on Num Noms in our upcoming review and competition!

The grown ups weren’t forgotten either, we sampled a range of delicious pizzas, salads and goodies from the Bella Italia menu. I was very happy, if you want a recommendation, the Insalata Verde was incredible, a delicious salad of avocado, green beans, peas, cucumber, mixed leaves & spring onion with salsa verde & pumpkin seeds – heavenly!
