Japanese Pokemon Cards From The Pokemon Centre, Tokyo

We’re having the best time in Japan right now. It’s been my dream to visit this country for as long as I can remember, so when some bargain flights came up last year, I knew that was my chance. Nine short months later and here we are. Spending a month in this crazy, crazy country. We’ve based ourselves in the heart of it all, Tokyo and have been hunting down Pokemon Centers across the city. Travelling with only hand-luggage has… View Post

SimBrix Geek Kit Review

We LOVE Lego. True fact, Helen and I actually ran a highly successful Lego business online and at dedicated Lego shows for the best part of five years. So, whenever we hear of a product similar, or arguably better, we’re always first in line. SimBrix is highly similar to the popular Perler beads. Except due to the friction between the colours, there’s no need for an iron. Which is pretty cool, at least in principle. We found that if we weren’t careful… View Post

August 2018 – What We Watched This Month

We’re back with another ‘What We Watched This Month’. It’s the peak of Summer, so you’ll have to forgive us if actually, all we’ve been truly watching is the Baby Shark video on repeat around the pool on our family holiday to Fuerteventura. Because it’s at least partly true… Although we did manage to fit in a couple of other things too! The Adults Desperate Housewives As you may know by now we love watching series and the more episodes and… View Post

Our 2018 Bucket List – Update #2

At the start of the year, we set ourself a bucket list. A list of things we’d like to achieve over the course of the year. In most cases, this list was for enjoyment’s sake. Fun things we’ve wanted to do that we’ve been putting off (no time, no money etc.) We’ve chosen to update this list every 4 months, and today is the second update. You can read the first here. I’ve crossed off the things that we’re actually… View Post

Chicco Oh la la Stroller Review

Honestly I can tell I’m not yet a mum, I don’t get excited about a brand new stroller or look for a new one for fun. My sister Laura on the other hand often stroller shops, she oggles at other peoples strollers and gets jealous. In a matter of weeks we were due to fly to Fuerteventura with both kids in tow, Matilda still needed a mode of transport for naps and long walks. This was making Laura feel a… View Post

In The Night Garden Live Show Review

I remember the days of looking after my nephew Frankie, who is now 6, and watching In The Night Garden. We now have a new fan of the show in the family, Matilda. She is 2 this year and loves her friends Iggle Piggle and Oopsy Daisy. She has a couple of figures as well as soft toys at home that enjoy bath time and playing in the garden. We were lucky enough to be invited to watch the live… View Post

July 2018 – What We Watched This Month

We’ve spent half of the month in LA, and while that means a lot of time spent exploring it also means that we’ve had a chance to catch up on some awesome movies on two flights each more than 11 hours. The Adults Hidden Figures On our return flight from Los Angeles to Manchester, we had a choice of six films and one really stood out – so much so when I looked around, everyone was watching it. That film… View Post

Review: Logitech G213 Prodigy Keyboard

With the recent addition of a Corsair mousemat to my set up, I was very excited to get my hands on the RGB gaming keyword G213 Prodigy by Logitech. This keyboard would be replacing the standard one which came with the computer. While the computer itself may be a ROG Gaming Computer it didn’t come with the additional peripherals like you might have come to expect. Unboxing The G213 Prodigy First up, the box itself. I always think you can… View Post

June 2018 – What We Watched This Month

A little like may we have spent quite a lot of our time away. While this doesn’t mean we haven’t watched a lot, we also haven’t watched too much new stuff. We have been enjoying a lot of Netflix, as it is easy to watch anywhere in the world. The Adults You Me Her We started watching You, Me, Her quite some time ago when it first came onto Netflix. We ended up not finishing the second series so we… View Post

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… View Post
