Is it a bird or a plane? No it’s A Flutterbye Fairy

13 Aug

Flutterbye fairies by Spinmaster toys are super cute dolls that just happen to have wings and fly.
Recommend for children aged 6+ Alice 10 couldn’t wait to see what they were all about.

Heres what Alice Said… “Firstly these fairies are really pretty, they have lovely hair and beautiful wings. I didn’t think they would fly like they do I thought they wouldn’t be that good! But mine flys really high and I can control it by guiding it with my hand. It’s actually really cleaver and a lot of fun.”

Alice was super impressed with her little flutterbye fairy and to be honest so was I. The spinning skirt is constructed from a soft material so even if it hits your beloved widescreen it won’t damage it! Well, it didn’t ours and it hit numerous times during her first attempts at fairy flying. One person who looked slightly unimpressed had to be dad when the fairy accidentally on purpose flew at his head at speed (I really should leave the flying to the kids… Evil laugh!).

The charging base is pretty simple to operate.The fairy charges reasonably fast and you get a good degree of flying time on a full charge. Yes, this does take a high number of batteries, six to be precise however, good quality batteries have lasted the test of time and we are still currently on the same batch we started with.

Alice is 10 and loves the flutterbye fairy I’m pretty impressed to at 31. The fairy is aimed at kids 6+ and I feel this is a good age. Once you get the hang of using the flutterbye its as easy as riding a bike so 6 year olds will fully enjoy the challenge and achievement when mastering their pretty little fairy.

We love it and therefore recommend it to others with confidence.

Alice reviews the new Zoobles

16 Aug

My little girl is loving her role as one of the three Santa’s little helpers. She is very keen on toys, the littler the better. She has collected everything over the years, from Polly pocket & puppy in my pocket to the littlest pet shop. Can you imagine her excitement and delight when Blog Match offered her  the chance to review the brand new Toy ‘Zooble’ a funky little ball that springs into a magical creature

We received the Zooble called,’Icetasia’ while Alice was away with her Grandmother getting a much needed break from a very demanding Little man. She was delighted to discover her Zooble on her return back home.


Zoobles by Spin master are one of the latest collectible toys to hit the toy market, they are aimed at little girls aged 4 years and above, and come in at least 250 different designs.

Alice-Sara loved her Zooble Icetasia  so much so, that the following day, having opened her Zooble less than 24hrs before she had decided she needed another Zooble ! This resulted in her roping me into taking her on a trip into town where she brought Zooble number two with her packet money.

 Zoobles come in lots of colours and designs, no two are ever the same meaning you are able to a keep adding to the collection without the disappointment of accruing doubles. Alice described the New Zoobles to be ultra cute, fun little magical creatures. Each Zooble comes with its very own habitat and once you have placed your Zooble on its habitat you will see it spring open converting itself from a coloured ball to a funky, yet magical little character. As if, Alice didn’t find this bit fantastic enough she also told me about her joy at discovering that the Zooble contained a hidden but welcomed surprise, a “mini baby Zooble” that is can be found in the Zoobles tummy when popping open. The mini baby Zooble can be removed, joining its mummy on her habitat. Zoobles also have other cool features such as the ability to wiggle their ears, blink eyes and wag their tails when petted. Icetasia had little moving feet enabling  her to stand alone. Alice gave Zooble a very respectable ranking of 9/10

Parental overview

It’s hard  as a parent to keep up with what your children are into as their interest are forever changing (unless your like little man). It was clear to see from the onset that Alice-Sara would love zoobles , as stated she has since added to her collection by getting another Zooble with her pocket-money  which highlights just how much she likes these. Zoobles are new, yet very affordable starting at around £5.99 The fact that the collection is quite extensive means that I can now buy some other designs for both her birthday and Christmas helping her form a collection. Parental ranking is 9/10

Conclusions

Zoobles are available to buy from a range of toy stores including Argos and are on sale now. Spin Master have brought us a very nice little addition to Alice’s toy collection. All Zoobles are very affordable making it a great stocking filler at christmas. I predict that we are going to witness many little girls becoming Zooble crazy this christmas!

Quick note

Zooble have a cool fun site for kids to visit as well as a Zooble fan page on Facebook. The website is very magical with music and videos, Children can visit the different lands to discover what creatures come from where. Facebook fans can gain all the latest information on Zoobles.
