Tonka Tinys 3 Pack and Blind Garage Review

We love playing with Tonka toys and have previously reviewed the Tonka Classic Dump truck and the Soft-Walkin’ Wheels Dump Truck from Funrise.

This time we were sent some miniatures to review and we were just as thrilled to be playing with them.

The Tonka Tinys 3 pack and the Tonka Tinys Blind Garage are the perfect toys for your Tonka fans.

They are the tiny versions of your favourite dump trucks. What could be better?

The 3 pack contains 2 vehicles that you can see and once surprise vehicle which makes it all the more interesting to children. There are over 20 vehicles to collect and they include dump trucks and even helicopters.

The blind garage contains one vehicle –


The vehicles are very cute. They are replicas of the big ones. The wheels move so you can move the vehicles. I liked that you can also move the different parts even though they are so tiny.

The 3 pack is new for this year and there are more product lines due for autumn so watch this space.

The Tonka Tinys 3 pack is priced at £5.99 and the Blind garage is priced at £2.99

I think that they are good value for money and make really good pocket money toys.

Ravensburger Animal Jam Review and Giveaway

Aeryn loves doing puzzles. We were recently sent these Animal Jam puzzles from Ravensburger to review and she enjoyed completing them.

There are 3 x 49 piece jigsaw puzzles to complete.

The product is aimed at children aged 5+

If you didn’t already know, Animal Jam is an online game for children who love animals and the outdoors. Players can adopt pets, create and personalise their animal characters and dens and can also go off on wild adventures. Animal Jam has been created in partnership with National Geographic. It is a great game for children and it is safe too. My kids love it.

The puzzle features characters from Animal Jam.

Aeryn found them easy to do and required no help. It is challenging though as some of the pieces can be easily confused. Thank goodness that Ravensburger always ensures that one piece only fits into it correct place.

The puzzle is a good size – perfect in fact, as it’s too big or small.

Priced at £5.99, it is great value for money and a great way to keep children occupied with the Easter holidays around the corner.

I also have a treat for you this time where 2 of my lucky readers get a chance to win one of these puzzles.

Rainbow Cake Baking Set Review

We’ve reviewed products for Wicked Uncle before and they children have enjoyed playing with the Teacher’s Set we had from them. This time though we decided to review a baking set – Rainbow Cake to be exact.

Ever since we had the delivery, the children could not wait to make the cake. Last Sunday, we all got involved in baking and the finished product was delicious.

The baking set comes with everything you need to make the cake –

  • Cake tins
  • Cake mixes in different colours
  • Icing
  • Sprinkles
  • Jelly Beans

There are easy to follow instructions. You need to bake the different cake segments separately in the foil provided. All you need to do is add butter and eggs. You will need 500g of butter and 4 eggs.

It was very easy to make and took a little under an hour to complete.

The children helped so it was quick and we made up all four layers of the cake in one sitting. 

We did have to wait for the cake to cool a bit to complete the decoration.


I think I should have added more buttercream between layers but the children said it was perfect and I’ll take their word for it.

The Rainbow Cake looked rather lovely and tasted delicious too. In fact, the older two took some for lunch. I bet they were the envy of the lunchroom.

The cake was moist and tasty. It was also a good size and can easily be shared amongst 8 people as it is quite high too.

The set is priced at £16.95 and is great for any occasion.

It is a Candy Crush cake and came with some of the characters that you can add as toppers if you like. If you’re not a fan, you can leave this bit out.


We were sent the above set to review. All ideas and opinions are my own. 

Peppa Pig:My First Cinema Experience Review

On Saturday morning, we were up early to attend the exclusive screening of Peppa Pig:My First Cinema Experience.

Aeryn is a huge Peppa fan. From very young, she was stuck on Peppa Pig. It waned a little and then recently she started watching the videos again. So, she was thrilled at attending. We attended the fun in the foyer and got to meet Peppa and George as well as sample some tasty Peppa Pig cookies and cakes.

Peppa Pig: My First Cinema Experience is NOT a movie. I don’t think it would work that way anyway as toddler attention spans may not allow for this. Instead it is more an interactive experience which is an hour long.

You have Peppa and George and their friend Sophie (who’s really perky) in a home environment for the interaction and then there are 9 episodes (all new). The episodes are interspersed between the interactive elements with Sophie and Peppa and George.

In the episodes, Peppa visits London where she and the class is driven around the sights in a double decker bus by the Queen. There is also a four part episode of Peppa’s visit to the outback.  Of course, the joke’s always on Daddy Pig.


The interactive elements are also fun with songs like the Hokey Kokey and Wheels on the Bus being sung so children in the audience can join in.

It is indeed a treat for Peppa fans.

There are also some new characters introduced like Policeman Panda (David Mitchell) and Mrs. Crocodile (Jo Brand).

It is about an hour long and will be perfect for toddlers this Easter.

We enjoyed it – yes, even the older ones.

Peppa Pig: My First Cinema Experience will be released nation wide on the 7th of April 2017.
