We love Kazoops and if you’ve been following my blog, you know how thrilled we were to go to the premiere.
Now we have some more amazing news for you as there are all new episodes for you to see starting today at 4.20pm.
We were lucky enough to once again get a sneak peek at the new episode and I have to tell you that it is so much fun.
In this episode, the family needs to move something heavy upstairs and Monty provides some very innovative ways of how they can do so. His family ask him to stop day dreaming but his day dreaming turns out to provide a solution in the end. There is a lively song included in the episode as he and Jimmy Jones go on yet another adventure. I’m not going to spoil it all for you and tell you exactly what it is about. You’ll just have to tune in at 4.20 pm today to find out.
If you didn’t already know –
Kazoops is a children’s series on CBeebies and here’s a little more about it –
Monty Kazoop is a spirited boy of six, whose best friend is a pig called Jimmy Jones. In each episode Monty confronts a preconception about the grown-up world and sets out to challenge it, embarking on a wild imaginary adventure with Jimmy that offers them a fresh perspective.
In each episode Monty and Jimmy use their imaginations to find ways to look differently at the world around them. For after all, who says the world works the way grown ups think it should? Things can always be different if you just imagine.
Don’t forget – today at 4.20 pm on CBeebies you can catch the all new episode of Kazoops. For more information and activities you can also check out the Kazoops page
We are fans of The Lion King and naturally The Lion Guard. We have also been fortunate to review a few products from associated with the series.
This time we were sent a talking plush Bunga from Flair.
If you know about the characters from the series, you’ll know that Bunga is a honey badger and Kion’s best buddy. He is the adoptive nephew of Timon and Pumbaa. He is of course, a member of The Lion Guard. Bunga is the proverbial joker and is seen to be fun-loving and very adventurous. He sometimes jumps headlong into danger without giving a second thought.
You know what the talking plush Bunga will be about then?
He says phrases from The Lion Guard – Zuka Zama, Bunga the Lion Guard is here and it’s un-Bunga-lieveable. And yes he makes a fart sound too. (the children find this hilarious)
If you press on the lion guard symbol on his shoulder, it lights up.
It is a cuddly toy and perfect for fans of The Lion Guard.
If you want to add to the collection, Kion is also available.
Bunga is priced at £24.99 and is available at all major toy retailers.
With Jadyn in secondary school, we get very little time to actually do things like crafting and making – it’s all about homework. How lovely then that we were sent the Loopdeedoo set which forced us to create some bracelets that Jadyn will be giving to her friends.
The Loopdedoo is a spinning loom that helps you make your own bracelets. The kit includes the loom, 18 skeins of thread and instructions. There is also a handy drawer to store your thread and bracelets in.
We struggled a bit to get the instructions right but after a few tries, we mastered the art of working with the Loopdeedoo and Jadyn made some lovely bracelets.
We tried the twist and the and they both came out really well.
What we liked about it is that it allows us to make some pretty cool bracelets and that we could try out different designs. Since it uses embroidery skeins, you can add to the set by buying more.
The bracelets look trendy and would be ideal for little personalised gifts to give to friends in school or even to put into a party bag.
They are unique as you can change the thickness and the design as well as the colours.
The Loopdedoo is not restricted to making bracelets but you can combine the finished product to make belts or necklaces or even zipper pulls. They would look great on school bags too as a decoration.
Loopdedoo is priced at £19.99 and is available on Amazon.
We love Puppy In My Pocket and have reviewed a few sets from the range.
This time round, we were sent a Puppy in my Pocket Dog Carrier and Puppy Carrier Accessory Pack from Flair
Aeryn loves playing with these sets as they are small enough to carry around on car journeys as well as sneak into pockets to take to school!
The Dog Carrier is quite cute and you can fit two dogs in it. It does come with two dogs which is nice and you don’t really know which one you are getting so it’s kind of a surprise.
The Puppy Carrier Accessory Pack includes 2 collectable pups, one puppy carrier, bed, blanket, double dish, a treat and a collector’s checklist! There are three styles available to collect – pink, purple and teal.
What’s great about these sets is that you can keep adding to the collection. There are over 100 puppies to collect and each is so unique and cute.
You’ll be surprised but Puppy in my Pocket has been around since the 90’s and I remember my niece collecting them when she was little.
The brand is also introducing new ranges with Kitty In My Pocket available now and Jungle In My Pocket coming later in the year.
The Dog Carrier pack is priced at £4.99 and the Carrier accessory pack is priced at £7.99
We love the attention to detail of the puppies. They are adorable.
