Video Review of the blue Mini Micro with detachable O-bar and seat

DAYS TILL CHRISTMAS

As christmas draws ever so close we find ourselves nearing the end of our ‘Santa’s Little Helpers’ feature.

 We have run some fabulous competitions and featured some spectacular products in our reviews but as it’s not over yet here’s another of them spectacular products!

 This really is a ‘Must Have’, it’s the brand new Mini-micro with detachable O-bar and seat. The O-bar and seat makes the original Mini Micro scooter assessable to tots as young as one.

 I have in-fact added a video to this review as words alone cannot describe how fantastic this new addition to the Micro range really is.

 However I do have a few things to say about this fabulous scooter which I must add was an instant hit with myself and Harley.

 The Mini micro with detachable O-bar and seat is designed to last your child through three stages which is

  One: the ride on stage (designed for children aged 1-2 years)

 Two: the O-bar stage (designed for children aged 2-3 years)

 Three: the mini micro original T-bar stage (designed for children aged 3-6 years)

 No more does Harley stare at his siblings all gooey eyed as they scoot about at the park, he can now actually join in with the fun.

 Harley is quite tall and was able to use the scooter in its original form, however he still had a long way to go before he could fully master it. I really wasn’t sure how he would find the seat and whether he would actually use it! Well, I need not have worried, Harley took to it like a duck to water.

 It did make me laugh watching him scoot along while in a sitting position, to my surprise he did it really confidently and without any problems occurring whatsoever.

 He first took it for a spin on the way to my mother’s house who actually lives only a few streets away. At first he wanted me to hold his hand but as soon as he got going, he really went for it! I was actually really surprised how much speed he picked up once he got going.

 Once at my mum’s my niece took a shine to the scooter, and at ten weeks younger than Harley she couldn’t wait to test it out. As you can see from the picture below Little Amy-Leigh even loaded her handbag on the back (typical woman, you’ve gotta love her for it)!

 I absolutely love this little piece of equipment and so does Harley, its made taking the child out on their scooters so much more enjoyable knowing Harley can join in with all the fun, just check out the video below and you’ll know what I mean.

 Note how Harley refuses to come inside forcing me to set chase up the road!

 You may think that a children’s scooter with a price tag of £74.95 is steep, but seriously, this Mini micro is suitable for a child aged from one all the way up to the age of 6 years, I therefore feel this is excellent value for money.

For the Mini Micro Blue with detachable O-bar and seat attachment (also available in pink) price £74.95

Creations by Charlotte Review

Its Official the party season is amongst us!

However it’s more than Christmas that’s on the way in this house.

Yes, I have just about got over Little man’s Birthday and I have two more on the way. This time it’s Harley who will be two on the 11th December 2011, then just after Christmas its Alice on the 29th January 2012.

Alice normally doesn’t have a party, I never really have the funds following Christmas, so this year I want to at least organise something even if it’s not massive, just a few of her girlie friends.

There are many Online party shops, offering everything from balloons, table decorations to party bags. I have found that many stockist who supply pre-filled party bags charge the earth for this service.

Charlotte is a lovely lady who I met via twitter. Charlotte owns “Creations by Charlotte” and specialises in pre-filled Party bags for all occasions.

If you are a dab hand a filling your own bags and enjoy doing so, that’s fine, Creations by Charlotte also give the option of buying just your fillers. There are many wonderful items available to choose from and I would have loved to receive a party bag of this kind as a child.

I was delighted to check out Charlotte’s site and then review one of her pretty party bags for little ladies.

The bag I was sent was pre-filled meaning it’s one less little thing a busy mum would need to worry about when organising a child’s birthday party. The bag was nicely filled with real girlie treats and was pretty on the eye too. A clear plastic bag with pink hearts, that was finished off with tied sparkly metallic ribbon.

Contents.

Our bag went by the name LITA

1 mini perfumed pad

1 Princess stationary set (pencil and mini rubbers/stickers)

1 pack of hair accessories (cute heart hair clips)

1 pack of fashion accessories (colourful beaded bracelets)

1 bag of mixed sweets (these were really cool reminding me of the penny mixup from when I was a kid)

The Cost

LITA bag costs £2.70 plus an extra 30p for the sweets, so £3.00 in total

All bags have their own price and range from about £2.30-£3.00 the addition of the sweets cost an extra 30p per bag

What’s fantastic is the fact you can choose from a number of bag designs and finishing touches as well as the type of contents

There are around ten bags in the girls range, each with different themes to choose from, all with their own name & treats.

These would make a really sweet and pretty addition to any girls birthday party, leaving her friends going home smiling. Maybe depending on the numbers, we’ll order some for Alice’s girlie party next year.

Another fantastic product is the baby baskets that are filled with special little gifts, from keepsakes, bonnets, mittens and cute little booties.

These are an extra special gift to give that special someone when congratulating them on the birth of their child.

So, why not check out Creations by Charlotte. You can get bags for boys, girls and even babies.

All products are pretty awesome and make a welcome addition to any occasion.

Delivery was really fast and customer service excellent.
