Review: toucanBox - Kids crafts in a box




The fun people over at toucanBox.com have sent my boys one of their crafty boxes to sample. Jack got the honour of getting to open the box after his brothers went to bed. We didn't quite grasp what was going on to start with.... but the further into the box Jack explored the more excited he (and me, too) got excited!



We have two projects in our box, it's a Grande Box worth £16.95. The Super Boxes have 4 projects and cost £19.95. Two projects was just right for us, as Jack & Tom are both in the suggested age range. Georgie is a bit young - and although he did join in he's too little to claim a project for him self.

Our first project: Building a catapult! Perfect for my boys!


How much fun....!?

We saved the castle till last. It looked like so much fun! And I figured that once the castle was made, and all the characters were coloured in and decorated with glitter glue they would want to just get on and play. I was right!


So when I asked the kids what they thought of toucanBox this is what they had to say:
  • I love it!
  • It's awesome!
  • Best review we've had in AGES
  • The best bit is PLAYING WITH IT coz we MADE IT!
  • Can we have another one??

And I think it's great because it's a lot of fun with minimal mess and fuss. The kit came with everything but scissors - and who hasn't got scissors of their own? It's a great boredom buster, ideal for wet weekends and long winter evenings. We managed to stretch out the construction for the better part of a week, doing a bit after school each night and then went mad with the playing! Jack loves the story book that came with it - an unexpected bonus that I haven't had in other craft boxes.

It's a great gift idea, with options from small kits to annual subscriptions. There are even party ideas! It's well worth checking out. Santa might well be bringing my lot a box or two to help see us through the rest of winter!

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…

Bath night with these two horrors!
