Back in the summer we attended an event at Hilton Leeds City with Online Golf. The event was a chance for the kids to try their hands at golf and play some fun filled games.
My two both love crazy golf so I thought it would be fun for them to try something a bit more serious to see if they liked it and to get some advice on what you can do to encourage kids to try more.
As both my children are little left handers I was interested to know more about specific clubs that might help them. I was interested to learn that 8 out of 10 left handed juniors actually play golf right handed. In order to assess whether or not your child should play right or left handed you should get them assessed by a golf coach who can see which hand they are naturally better suited to. Both my two were using a stance and style that made them appear to suit right handed golf better.
They had a fantastic day trying out various golf games and came home with a cap and some balls and tees. They had a great day and were both more than a little bit enthusiastic about getting into golf. All we need now is a set of junior clubs so they can practice at home!
Teletubbies. The bane of my life as a young teenager. With a sister 11 years younger than me I remember watching Teletubbies regularly, I can’t say it was something I enjoyed but I remember how much she loved did. Fast forward 20 years and my kids have both watched Teletubbies along the way. Lissylou has recently loved playing the Teletubbies game on CBeebies too.
When we received the Teletubbies Pull and Play Noo-Noo Electronic Activity Centre to review I knew it was going to be better suited to my friends children but Lissylou just couldn’t resist testing it out first.
What you notice first about the Teletubbies Pull and Play Noo-Noo Electronic Activity Centre is that it looks exactly like the Noo-Noo from the show. It even ‘vacs’ through the clever use of magnets. Your little one with love vaccing up the Teletubbie pink custard.
Its also a great shape sorter with a selection of shapes and the all important Teletubbies too.
The Teletubbies Pull and Play Noo-Noo Electronic Activity Centre works great as a pull along, it rolls nicely and is easy for little ones to walk with easily.
The final fun comes from the range of sound buttons and the noises it makes when it moves. It’s worth noting there is a handy ‘MUTE’ button to turn of those noises, or switch it off all together to keep things quiet!
Don’t forget that the Teletubbies Pull and Play Noo-Noo Electronic Activity Centre requires two AAA batteries to make the sounds work!
The Teletubbies Pull and Play Noo-Noo Electronic Activity Centre has an RRP of £49.99 and is available from Character Online
Fans 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.
