#RealRapunzel with Little Princess Trust and Shrek’s Adventure London

Next Saturday, we’re headed to a rather unique event. My two girls are going to be donating their hair for the Little Princess Trust. So this –

is going to take a good cut.

The girls are thrilled at being able to do something like this and can’t stop talking about it.

I wish I had not cut my hair so recently so I could have also contributed. But alas!

If you want to know more about the event and register for it, here’s some more information –

SHREK’S ADVENTURE! LONDON TO HOST MASS HAIR DONATION EVENT FOR THE LITTLE PRINCESS TRUST ON 29TH APRIL 2017

Shrek’s Adventure! London are looking for kind, generous people willing to have at least 7”/17cm of their hair cut off for the Little Princess Trust at a fabulous, fun-filled day on the afternoon of 29th April. While the minimum length of hair for donation is 7”/17cm longer hair donations are especially welcome, so real-life Rapunzels looking for a style change are particularly sought-after!

The Little Princess Trust is a charity which provides free real hair wigs to boys and girls across the UK & Ireland that have lost their own hair through cancer treatment and other illnesses.

Donors should register for a time slot at https://realliferapunzel.eventbrite.co.uk, when they can donate their hair and then enjoy a complimentary haircut and styling courtesy of students and staff from South Thames College Hair Salon, a glitter makeover and plenty of fun activities too. Each donor can bring one non-donating guest – although the more donors the better!

The event will be attended by The Only Way is Essex star Mario Falcone, who recently donated his hair to the charity. Mario will be meeting guests and crowning the donor of the longest hair as a ‘Real Life Rapunzel’.

Charity Manager, Monica Glass, said “We are absolutely thrilled that Shrek’s Adventure! London has offered to host this wonderful event on behalf of the Little Princess Trust. We arereally looking forward to meeting so many of our amazing donors and we feel this is a great opportunity to offer everyone who supports our charity that day a fun-filled afternoon!’

Steve Blackburn, General Manager of Shrek’s Adventure! added, “Shrek’s Adventure! London is home to lots of princesses and we are really proud to be working with the Little Princess Trust, spreading awareness of the incredible work they do and encouraging those with long hair to donate it for the benefit of children suffering from hair loss.”

Molly Monster Film Review and Giveaway

Molly Monster was always the smallest in her family – until now.

 

Get ready for the adventure of a lifetime as Molly Monster, the latest film from Enchanted Animation, premieres in UK cinemas on the 21st of April. Delightfully heart-warming and beautifully animated, get your family together this Spring for a story all about new beginnings.

In Monsterland, when the mothers lay their eggs it is the father’s job to keep them warm until it is time for the eggs to hatch. Baby monsters only hatch on Egg Island, so when Molly finds out she is going to be having a new brother or sister, she knows her family are off on a trip.

However, Molly Monster is too young to join her parents on the journey to Egg Island which leaves her feeling upset and disappointed. A determined Molly sets out on a journey to be reunited with her family – and it is longer and far more difficult than anything she could have ever imagined.

Accompanied by Edison, her best friend and toy, Molly learns what it means to be a family and most importantly what it means to become a big sister!

Molly Monster is a charming piece of storytelling for pre-school children which teaches them about family bonding and friendship. Ted Sieger‘s MOLLY MONSTER, is an international coproduction of Sieger, Little Monster GmbH,Trickstudio Lutterbeck GmbH, Alexandra Schatzfilmproduktion UG, Sluggerfilm AB, Senator Film Munchen GmbH and Peacock Film and will be distributed in the UK and Ireland by Enchanted Animation.

We loved the film. It’s endearing and deals with familial love and all the emotions that a sibling encounters when there is a new baby on the way.

Molly Monster is released in cinemas across the UK today – 21st April 2017 and was released in Ireland on 14th April 2017

Run time: 72 minutes

To celebrate the release of the film, I’m running a giveaway where you can win 1 of 2 chocolate eggs. You can never have enough chocolate, can you? All you need do is enter the giveaway below –

J’aime Paris

The news of the Paris shooting yesterday was too close to home and deeply saddened us. Only last week, we were on the Champs-Élysée taking in the sights. We were posing in front of the Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower. It is an amazing city and our first visit left us wanting for more. Too short a time – 2 days in Paris.

I will be writing more about our tour of the city but for now I leave you with a few images of the beautiful city of Paris.

The All-New Kazoops is here

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
