The Emoji Movie Light Up Figures

We all express ourselves with emoticons these days. In fact I sometimes see that my daughter uses more emoticons than words in her messages. In keeping with this trend, The Emoji Movie has been released and stars different emoticons.

We received these figures from The Emoji Movie to review and the children were quite taken with them.

The figures are light up figures and are perfect for a desk or a shelf in the kids’ room. In fact, I probably could do with a Gene on my work desk.

We were sent Jailbreak and Gene.

Jailbreak is one of the characters from The Emoji Movie. She used to be a princess but she ran away from Textopolis. Her goal is to break free, past the firewall so she can live in the cloud with no worries.

Gene lives in Textopolis and has a range of emotions. He lives in a boy called Alex’s phone and is almost about to be deleted. He has to outwit the bot and finally learns to embrace himself for what he is.

The Jailbreak action figure has purple hair that lights up when you lift her left arm. She has big eyes and a slight smirk. She wears a beanie.

Gene is obviously yellow in colour much like the emoticons we use so often. His mouth lights up when you lift his left arm.

The figures are great for imaginative play but more so for adding to a collection. The come with a base so they can stand with ease.  They are 8 inches tall.

The children enjoyed trying them out and making them light up. They have kept them as part of their toy collection.

Also available is Poop from the film.

The Emoji Movie Light Up Figures are aimed at children 3+. Priced at £14.99, they are available at all major toy retailers.


L.O.L. Surprise Lil Sister Doll Review

We recently reviewed The L.O.L Surprise doll and were quite happy to receive the L.O.L. Surprise Lil Sister doll.

The Lil Sister is much like the L.O.L. surprise in that it opens the same way with the many layers but there are a few differences.

The Lil Sister doll is naturally more a baby and is just adorable.

It has 5 layers to unravel. Each layer gives you a sort of clue as to what the doll is going to be.

When unravelled, the doll is ever so cute. It has a little nappy and our particular one can change colour when put into ice cold water. In fact, some designs appear on her nappy and even her face – much like little cat stripes.

The doll is small and is perfect for playing with on trips as it can easily fit in a pocket or a little bag.

The concept of having to open the many layers is so exciting for little ones as you don’t know which one you are going to get. Also, opening so many layers makes for so much fun.

The dolls are priced at £9.95 and are perfect for adding to a collection.

Mickey and Minnie Toys from Flair – Review

We’re hosting another Twitter party and this is a real fun one – it’s a Disney party.

We were sent a lovely lot of products to play with during the party as well as some great stuff for the party. Let’s have a little sneak peek into all of it.

Aeryn was thrilled with the toys that we were sent and I’m sure that the children who attend the event will be just as happy to get a chance to play with them as well as take home some lovely goody bags.

Minnie’s Happy Helpers Bag Set was the first one up and this consists of lots of things that you need on your travels – it has a passport and passport holder, a mobile phone, some stickers and of course a lovely bag that is sparkly. It also has a bracelet and you can take the charm off the bag and attach it to the bracelet. The mobile phone plays Minnie’s voice and there are a few phrases that it says when the buttons are pressed.

Aeryn has reviewed this on her new YouTube Channel – The Magic Hat Reviewer.

Next up, we have the Minnie’s Happy Helpers Cash Register and like the other toys in the range it is pink and girly. The numbers beep when pressed and when you press the bow, Minnie says some phrases. The drawer of the cash register opens when you turn the little Minnie ears or you press the enter button. There is play money in coins and notes and a credit card. The credit card beeps when you swipe it.

Lastly, in this range, we were sent a shopping basket that contains quite a lot of products – strawberries, an apple, a loaf of bread, a milk carton, canned vegetables and a knife with which you can cut the vegetables.

This is an ideal add on for the cash register as you can pretend to scan products like a real check out.

We were also sent two products from the Mickey and the Roadster Racers range – a toolkit and a talking tool belt.

The talking tool belt includes –

  •  Tool belt
  • Manual spinning impact wrench with interchangeable socket and screw bit
  • Tire air pressure Gauge
  • Play motor oil bottle and funnel
  • Wrench and screws

When you press Mickey, it says Mickey phrases which is great fun for a little one.

The Tool Box contains tools like a mallet, spanners, screwdriver, screws and play metal plates that can be screwed together.

The toolbox is handy for storing all the bits and pieces.

Together both these products would make a lovely present for your budding roadster.

Of course, this is a Twitter party so we were also sent loads of goodies to have a successful party at home. There’s going to be loads of games and the children will definitely love the goody bags filled with Minnie and Mickey fun products.

You can join us too –

It’s on the 10th of August at 1pm. Don’t forget to follow @UKMumsTV and me at @Jacintaz3 to win great prizes.


Jungle In My Pocket Playset and Blind Bag Review

Following on from Puppy in my Pocket, we were sent some Jungle in my Pocket toys to review. We were looking forward to receiving this as we have reviewed quite a few from the Puppy in my Pocket range.

We were sent this cool Jungle in my Pocket Tree House Playset which included two exclusive jungle pets. There’s a cool waterfull and a swing for the monkeys.


A fruit launcher is perfect for when the monkeys decide to launch bananas. A teeter-totter is best for playtime at the Tree House. There isn’t a single animal that doesn’t like to hang out at the tree house.

A canopy and lookout nest make the playset even more fun.

Remember you can collect other animals to add to the tree house playset. These can be blind bags or 15 piece sets or carrier sets.

Series 1 of Jungle in my Pocket includes 25 animals with 4 rare and 1 ultra rare animals to collect.

I was also sent two blind bags which the children loved opening. It’s the unknown that makes them so interesting.

We received a crocodile and the anteater in the blind bag.

The Jungle playset is priced at £24.99 and the bling bags are priced at £2.49

The toys are of a great quality and will ensure hours of playing fun. It is especially great to be able to add to the range.
