Review: Rick & Morty Pint Size Heroes By Funko

We’ve never been huge fans of Funko Pops (gasp!). Since their rise to fame in 2015 we’ve found the quality to be lacking and the volume and variety available to collect to be rather incomprehensible. However, today we found ourselves picking up some Rick and Morty Pint Size Heroes on reduction while in the USA. Inside blind bags, I was unable to tell if the quality of this small but mighty Funko products had in fact improved, and so it seemed only fitting I picked some up to open them up and find out. Pint Size Heroes By Funko Pint Size Heroes were launched in August of 2016 by Funko. In the beginning, the range consisted of just three different… View Post

May 2018 – What We Watched This Month

We actually have spent quite a bit of our time away doing everything from weddings to holidaying so we have watched nothing too new this month. Though we always have some great things to share with you. We keep updated with what the kids have been watching too so we can give your little ones something new to watch. The Adults Westworld Series 2 While we are only 3 episodes in I can easily say this has been one of the best things we have watched this month. We were blown away by Westworld the first time so getting a new series has been something to look forward to. Though still as twisted and complicated you can’t help but be enthralled with… View Post

Review: Corsair Gaming MM300 Extended

Last year I FINALLY bought a mediocre second-hand gaming PC. I say that because as I’m sure you know gaming PC’s are expensive, and I wanted to be sure I would use it enough to justify the cost. Slowly but surely as I’ve been using the PC more and more I’ve been adding new peripherals to my set up, and today finally, it was time to add a mouse mat. Not just any mouse mat though, the Corsair Gaming MM300 Extended. I’ve been in love with Corsair products like many gamers for as long as I can remember. However much like a gaming PC itself, the Corsair products aren’t cheap which is my reasoning for putting this purchase off for… View Post

April 2018 – What We Watched This Month

April turned out to be a busy month for us but we still managed to make time for our loved programmes and even found some new ones. We also flew to Orlando for a 2 week holiday and got to see some new stuff on the flight which is always good. We managed to binge watch a whole new series and start on the next one. Let’s check out what we watched this month… The Adults Marvels Jessica Jones While I have watched a couple of Marvel films and like a good superhero story I hadn’t fallen into the fan zone like some others. While searching through Netflix for a new series to binge on, we stumbled on Jessica Jones.… View Post

Our 2018 Bucket List – Update #1

Back at the start of the year (which was now four months ago… SERIOUSLY!!), we sat down together to come up with a bucket list of things we’d like to achieve in 2018. We tried to come up with a variety of things that would enhance our life together over the course of 12 months, and as with all goals, it’s important you reflect on them often. Which is why, today, a third of the way through the year we’re doing our first update. Go Away Once A Month We were determined to go away at least once a month this month and so far… so good! Well, except for March when only Helen went away on a Hen Do to… View Post

We’re Going To BlogOnX

Helen and I are both excited to be attending BlogonX in exactly 14 days time (by which time we’ll be home from Orlando, Florida and have spent five nights in Iceland… we have A LOT going on right now) It’s my third time at the BlogOn conference (I think… it could be fourth!) and Helen’s second. However, it’s the first time we’ll be attending together to represent our multigenerational lifestyle blog The Harrison Household. We, therefore, figured it was pretty fitting to complete the BlogOnX linky which you can learn more about right here… Share a recent photo of yourself Here’s a quick snap of us meeting the one and only Ariel at Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World last week 🙂 What’s… View Post

Everything You Need To Know About Mardles Rocks

I’ve loved Geo-caching for as long as I can remember, but I can’t always imagine it’s that fun for kids (especially after one or two finds…) which is why when I heard about Mardles Rocks I knew it was going to be a hit! So, what is Mardles Rocks? The idea is very simple to Geocaching, just with added AR and a little more emphasis on design and creativity – which in my opinion is what makes it perfect for kids! In short, hide and or find decorated rocks and move or reside them for others to find. However, what makes Mardles Rocks unique from other decorated rocks is the ability to add AR (augmented reality) While you can find… View Post

Summer Travel Essentials

Have you booked your family summer holiday yet? Over the Easter holidays, many of us turn our attention to the next major school holiday, where we plan to spend two weeks of sun-drenched (at least one hopes!) bliss away from the stress of it all. However, holidaying with the family isn’t always easy and just one wrong turn can lead to a nightmare of illnesses that can easily ruin that relaxing holiday you’ve dreamed about so much. For that reason, I’ve put together a list of our travel essentials… Hübner’s Silicea Gastro Intestinal Gel We love trying new foods while travelling abroad, however with that can often come some side-effects. Hübner’s Silicea Gastro Intestinal Gel is designed to help soothe the symptoms… View Post

March 2018 – What We Watched This Month

With the return on some of our most loved series and excitedly the return of some of our newer series for a second series, we had plenty to watch. While we had a couple of days of snow too to add to the mix we managed to spend some time with Frankie and Bella and catch up on our films. We discovered some new gems this month to add to our watched list hoping for a second series. The Adults The Walking Dead If you are also a fan of The Walking Dead you may have similar feelings to us… we are done with The walking dead, the last episode we watched we actually skipped most of it because we… View Post

Gin Gins Candy Helping To Prevent ‘Morning Sickness’ During Pregnancy

Morning Sickness has to be one of the worst things during pregnancy. It affects each one of us differently, and at this moment in time, it’s hitting my sister Amy who is five weeks pregnant HARD!  Morning Sickness seems to exasperate all the negative things about pregnancy, nausea, fatigue, as well as how easily you can become aggravated. So, when The Ginger People got in touch to congratulate Amy on her pregnancy I spoke to them about how Gin Gins candy might be able to help her. Gin Gins Candy is available in a tasty caramel sweet and contains a 30% ginger per sweet. Working within the digestive system, ginger can help to boost digestive fluids and neutralize acids.
