June : Round Up
June has been a very quiet month for me, both with requests but also my interaction with my blog and social media. The main reason for this is that I had surgery at the end of May and spent 4 weeks feeling rather poorly afterwards, I also started a new job which limits my evening ability to blog. I am now recovered and now finding a new routine to life and finding my time to blog coming back.
The only item I have to tell you about this month is Monchhichi from Bandai.
We were sent these adorable creatures at the end of May in time for the half term holiday, the aim was to take them on days out with us to give them fun adventures. Unfortunately with my surgery happening on the 2nd day of the holidays neither the bears nor my children left the house for 5 days so sadly we never got to do our adventures.
We fully intend to make up for the lack of adventures during the summer holidays, keep an eye on my Instagram feed for updates to see where we end up.
Monchhichi has been around for many years, perhaps you knew them as Chicaboo?? These loveable bears have beautifully soft bodies but plastic faces, hands and feet. One hand is holding a dummy perfect for when your child thinks their bear is upset.
There is a range of characters to collect, in a range of sizes from keyring sizes to plush bears up to 80cm tall. There is certainly a bear for every child. Available to buy in most high street stores and also on-line, we were provided with a 20cm Classic RRP £18 and a Keyring RRP £8.50.
Also from Bandai in June we have been testing the Tamagotchi, we have had lots of fun raising our digital pet, connecting it with friends and also earning rewards for it on the Tamagotchi Dream Land. You can now read our full review here.
The kids got to try out some lovely new summer clothing from House Of Fraser, review here.
We also got to visit National Sealife Centre, Birmingham to claim our ambassador passes and also be given a guided tour through the venue and learn lots of interesting facts of the residents.
Lastly we got to play host for an amazing Leapfrog Princesses Party, we were provided with a range of Leapfrog toys and princess games, party decorations and gorgeous Cinderella dresses to play and share our party with you. The Princesses had a great party and the toys went down a treat. Read all about it here.
July brings lots of fun activities where we shall be visiting a range of locations ready for the summer holidays and also a great giveaway from Drumond Park. Keep your eyes peeled!
