The Christmas Snowflake Review & Giveaway

Wonderbly stories spark both imagination and self-belief. And any grown-up in the whole world can create one, to show a child that the most amazing stories are the ones that belong to them. It’s in a child’s imagination where their earliest adventuring takes place. Which is why children’s stories are so important. It’s our job (all of us) to help them believe that anything they imagine, they could one day do. That any story they imagine could be their story. We have reviewed a few of the Wonderbly range and have now been sent The Christmas Snowflake book for the season.
The Christmas Snowflake is a heartwarming story about family and Christmas time. It includes a pull out ornament which you can hang on your Christmas tree at the end of the story.
Snowflake is looking for a place to call home this Christmas – but only you and your loved ones can help find that home. This is a charmingly personalised festive tale the whole family will adore. It would make a perfect addition to your Christmas Eve baskets.
You can add up to 9 different family members to help Snowflake on the journey. Their names will magically appear on Snowflake’s crystals, festive Christmas stockings, and even floating majestically on the wind.
The Christmas Snowflake is a visual and lyrical treat. It is illuminated with heartwarming characters, gorgeous illustrations and playful verse on every page.
As the final page is turned, you’ll find a charming pull-out-and-keep ornament. A beautiful snowflake that perfectly frames your family's names in the book beneath.Such a lovely keep sake and nice touch to end the book. The book costs £19.99 and you can add a personal message to the front page, making it the perfect Christmas gift.

Fisher-Price Imaginext DC Super Friends BatBot Xtreme

I had a very excited 6-year old on my hands when the Imaginext Batbot Xtreme arrived at our door! He looks impressive before he is even out of the box, standing at over 2 foot tall. The Imaginext label always excites Mr C as he knows he is getting a quality toy to try out.
The Imaginext DC Super Friends Batbot Xtreme is the ultimate toy for Batman fans. With extendable wings, multiple projectile launchers, a hidden Batcycle, a voice changer, and real punching fists, your young Super Hero will have a blast defending Gotham City from all sorts of evil Super-Villain attacks! 
At over two-feet tall, the Batbot Xtreme towers over the enemies of Gotham City. Cody was well impressed with his towering heights he's never seen a toy so big. With the turn of a Power Pad on the shoulders, you can send the robot into battle mode, extending its wings and arms and preparing for action. The wings are a HUGE 3ft wide. You can then squeeze the triggers on the back of the Batbot to give those bad guys a super-charged, one-two punch! I think this maybe Cody's favourite feature, he found the triggers a bit stiff, but they will loosen up with use.
Turn the Power Pad on the robot's left shoulder to open his chest to reveal the hidden elevator that will take Batman up to the cockpit, where he can launch a counterattack. The lift shaft slides up and down easily. The other power pad operates the missile projectors, for some real battle action.
Press the launch buttons on the robot's shoulders to fire projectiles. The missiles fly quite far and the combination of pointed missiles and round missiles is fab. The kids can add their unique voice to the Batbot Xtreme with the super cool voice changer. Activated when you press the button.
The Batbot xtreme is bound to be a must want this Christmas for all Imaginext fans. It goes alongside all the other Imaginext sets perfectly and you can even use your existing mini figures with the set. The retails at £124.99 but can be picked up for around £80 if you shop around. I do think this is a lot of money, but it's extremely well made. Cody loves it and hasn't put it down since it arrived. It great for imaginative play too, so you will get your monies worth. Go check out our Youtube video where you can see the toy in more detail.

Its Family Games Night Time

It's hard finding an activity that all of the children like and will do together. The team at Character sent us over some family games in an attempt to get the boys playing together. With Christmas just around the corner, they have sent me 2 of the games that are going to be pretty popular this Christmas.
The boys are huge FNAF fans so when they saw one of the games in the delivery was Five Nights at Freddy's jumpscare game. Boom Blast Stix is a game we have recently seen advertised on the tv too, so it really got them excited to play.
Forst up they wanted to try the Five Nights At Freddy's suspense-filled, thrill-seeking game brings the world's most popular jump-scare mobile game to life in 3D form! Players take it in turns to spin the spinner wheel to determine how many and what colour of pizza tokens they must steal from Freddy's tray as he snoozes. Whenever a player wakes and disturbs Freddy he jumps up and screams at the player eliminating them from the game. Play continues until there's only one player left in the game. Steal his Pizza if you dare but beware the jumpscare!
The boys loved the anticipation of this game, you just never know when Freddy is going to jump scare you. You have to be super careful when getting those pizza slices. We managed to clear the pizza tray and reload it without getting someone jump scared out. So you reload and carry on. The boys loved it when one of them finally got a jump scare and it made them want to carry on even more. Ths is sure to be on top of most FNAF fans Christmas lists, its available from the Character website priced at £24.99.
After the excitement of the previous game, we thought we might be able to calm it down with a nice relaxing game! But that's not the case with Boom Blast Stix, its another anticipation game of skill.
The explosive high stakes game that's loaded with excitement! You have to lock the sticks and stack them high. Each player takes it in turns to add a locked stick to the pile. The anticipation is knowing who will be the one to make them fly? Do you have the skills to cope with the pressure?
I was impressed with the boy's skills, they managed to get quite a stack going on before one of the stix finally popped! Watch your eyes as when they go, they go fast and high. The boys thought it was a hoot. You can play with the container lid on the floor or for more action put the lid on the container and play it high. The boys liked playing up high, it gave more a thrilling effect. This will be a fab family Christmas gift, we will definitely be playing it at our family boxing day get together. This is available from the character website for £10.99.

We really had fun with these family games from Character and it has got us really excited for Christmas and all the fun we will have then.

Stretch Mini Justice League - Batman

We adore Character they are the home of all the children's favourite toy ranges. With Christmas around the corner, I am getting lots of requests for toy reviews. I tend to only agree to things I know the kids will love and play with. Character got in touch and asked me to try out one of the Stretch Mini Justice league figures.
The figures claim to be super stretchy fun, the boys loved the Super Stretch Armstrong we reviewed last year, so I knew they would like to try these mini justice league stretches. Plus they are a great tool for getting out your stresses and aggression on after a long day! Like a fun stress ball!
There are 3 in the collection and we got sent Batman, the other options are Superman and Flash. The figures are 7 inches tall and retail at £12.99. They are suitable for ages 5+ and you can stretch them and stretch them and they will return to their normal size. My boys were obviously keen to put this theory to the test!
Cody gave it 100% in the stretching skills department and gave Batman a good old twist and squeeze. It's really pliable and not too stiff, so really easy to pull and twist. He loved pulling it and was eager to give it a go with his brother when he got back from school.
Together the boys really put it through its paces and true to the promises the figure goes back to its normal size. This is the perfect toy for Dayton as he gets himself stressed out and he has his Sats coming up. This is the perfect distraction when he needs a break from studying.
The Stretch Mini Justice League figures are available to buy online from Character. You can choose which figure you like if your child has a favourite. They are a fab price and ideal stocking filler.

Win The Children’s Meditations In my Heart Book

FROM ‘Hygge’ to parenting, the Danish way of doing things is often widely talked about and one of Denmark’s latest exports is no exception. “The Children’s Meditations In my Heart” by emerging Danish author Gitte Winter Graugaard enables children to fall asleep within minutes. Now available in three different languages, it is beginning to change bedtime routines the world over.

What’s her secret? A method so simple it will surprise you: you’ve just got to turn up the love.

A collection of four meditations for parents to read to their children, Graugaard’s book shows parents how to teach their child the importance of self-esteem and self-love, enabling them to drift off into calming, reparative sleep, their hearts full with love. 
Now more than ever our children are bombarded with messages, overt and subliminal, wrangling with expectations both perceived and real, which when coupled with the casualties of modern living, stressed and divorced parents, stressed and still together parents, over-scheduling and long school days, can greatly impact on their mental wellbeing: more children than ever before suffer with stress, depression, anxiety and sadness.

Sleep, or rather a difficulty in falling asleep, is one of the most obvious tell-tale signs that ‘something’s up’, and in general, children today sleep for one hour less than they did 25 years ago.

Continual information overload and lack of sleep makes for a challenging cocktail for any child and of course their parents, with research indicating that children who consistently miss out on sleep can, over time, show symptoms similar to reactions we see in children with ADHD.

Asked why she thinks meditation before bedtime is key to overcoming anxiety in children and the pre-slumber ‘stand-off’, Graugaard draws on her own experiences as a parent:

“When I started sharing beautiful heart meditations with my daughters, I was surprised to see how much they loved the interaction and how quickly they would fall asleep. As different as children are, almost every child delights in hearing about how much a parent or caregiver loves and treasures them. Even teenagers – to my surprise! – seem to be calmed by hearing the meditations in the book read aloud. However, the best part is that your child learns to fill his or her own heart with love. And learning how to turn up their self-love has shown to give children so much comfort long into the following day too, at nursery or school and beyond.” 

Seeing the positive effect on her own children made her write down the meditations for other parents to share with their children.

Now available in the UK “The Children’s Meditations In my Heart” is available from www.amazon.co.uk priced £14.95 for a hard copy, £4.97 for a kindle copy, and £5.09 for a pdf download from www.roomforreflection.com.
