Heroes of the City Giveaway

You may have read my review on the Heroes of the City App that Ruta Ett sent me last week – if you haven’t you can read it here.
We then received a lovely parcel of goodies from them – a fab pre Christmas surprise that has given us valuable minutes to wrap the thousands of presents!
Included in our parcel was a gorgeous glossy hardback book, which is beautifully illustrated and contains really endearing characters (we’ve called in love with Calamity Crow!). There was also a DVD of the series, a blow up ball which we’ve used for talking about colours and the kids favourite – two lovely little die cast vehicles!


We have another one of these lovely sets from Ruta Ett to giveaway to a lucky winner. Simply leave a comment below telling me what your favourite blog post has been so far!
Good luck!!

Winners will be chosen on Monday 6th January 2014

***The winner was Becki Gates***


Cardooo Review and Giveaway

I hate cards. You open them, stick them on a shelf where they do nothing but irritate you by falling over and gathering dust. That was until I received a Cardooo card to review!
Cardooo are a small book company with a book publishing background. They have created a range of interactive greeting cards, that contain games, puzzles, stories, stickers and much more, which will amuse kids from the moment they’re opened.

I received two cards from them. The first was a story card ‘The Enormous Turnip’ (which is a story we love!). The card is blank for you to include your own greeting so could be used for any occasion. The card is no bigger than a normal card so I reckon would be pretty standard postage cost. The story is beautifully illustrated and would be perfect for sharing at bedtime!


I really loved the second card which was a Christmas activity card. It contained 12 pages of puzzles, games and colouring activities as well as a fold out board game and stickers. As just a card it is beautiful but the little extras inside make it a really special gift for someone.


The company sells a range of cards for
all sorts of occasions, for a really reasonable price so I know I will be looking at using them for cards in the future!

I’m giving away ‘The Enormous Turnip’ story card to someone lucky. All you need to do is leave a comment telling me what your favourite kids book is and why, and I’ll pick a winner. Winner will be chosen on the evening of Wednesday 11th December. Good luck!!!

I was sent two samples of Cardooo cards free of charge for the purpose of this review. All opinions and thoughts expressed are my own.
