Og On The Bog Review & Giveaway

Og on the Bog is a fun electronic game from Drumond Park. We were given the chance to try it out and let’s be honest what kid doesn’t love anything to do with toilet humour and farts? Stay with us as there’s a chance to win a copy for yourselves at the end!

og-on-the-bog-electronic-game-box-front

The initial thought after we’d opened the box was how refreshing it is that there is very little ‘putting together’ required, some games take ages while the kids moan and get bored but this one took only a few minutes. This is because as you can see below there are very few parts.

The box contains:

  • Og himself on his Bog
  • 12 Loo Rolls
  • Loo Roll pole and base
  • Tree stump spinner

The only assembly required is for you to close the walls of the bog by lifting the front and back walls first then the sides, put the loo roll pole and base together and attach it to the side of the bog and there are also 3 AA batteries required which are not included. We also keep a stash handy though before switching it on via the switch on the bottom.

Each person starts with 1 loo roll each, with the youngest player going first – pleased my daughter no end that did – then spin the spinner to see the outcome.

  • A red cross means you’ve been noisy and miss a turn.
  • Hand holding a loo roll means you can pinch a loo roll from another player
  • A green tick means you can try and a steal a loo roll from Og’s loo roll pole.

To steal a loo roll you need to push down the step on the front of the Bog, if he says anything he has heard you so you runaway and your turn is over. If he grunts or farts however it means he hasn’t heard you so you can attempt to lift a loo roll off the pole, whilst lifting it off if you move too much he shouts out again and you have to leave the lo roll on the pole. Again if he grunts or farts you haven’t been heard and get to keep the loo roll.

If Og does a monster fart and his Bog explodes during your turn then you need to put two of your loo rolls back onto the pole and finish your turn, raising the walls of Og’s bog so that you can carry on playing.

To win the game with 2/3 players the first to collect 4 loo rolls wins and with 4 players the first to collect 3 loo rolls wins.

I played the game with my son and daughter who found the noises coming from Og absolutely hilarious. There was a tiny bit of sulking from my daughter when her brother wanted to take her loo rolls but it’s all the fun of the game. Once the Bog explodes the first time it really makes you jump so you’re on giggly high alert waiting for it to go again. As you can imagine the sounds coming from the Bog are hilarious and Og says things such as “is that someone after my loo rolls” and “Who’s that? I’ll have you for supper” which the kids thought was brilliant.

Overall this was a definite hit for us, it’s hilarious, easy to play and although the box states 5+ I made the decision that my soon to be 5 year old was ok to play it and of course that meant I had to play with them for supervision purposes 😉

Og on the Bog is rrp £22.99 suitable for age 5+ and for 2-4 players.

BIC Colouring Review & Giveaway

When I was contacted by BIC with an offer to review some of their products it didn’t take me long to say yes as the kids had ‘accidentally’ put some coloured BIC pens in the trolley on a shopping trip earlier that day so I knew they would be very happy to help me review! We received a pack of BIC kids Ecolutions Evolution colouring pencils and a pack of Conte felt pens. There’s a chance to win a set of both at the end of this post. BIC is a household name that started with the iconic Crystal pen in 1950 and now has a huge range of products.

The Ecolution Evolution colouring pencils came as a pack of 12 (there are also packs of 18 & 24 available) and contained all the colours you would expect for children to happily  colour with. They’re wood free and made from 50% recycled materials and are very strong, so if your children are like mine and are a bit rough sometimes then you know they won’t snap and splinter. They sharpen well without any rough bits like some of the cheaper pencils we have bought in the past. Each pencil is embossed with gold lettering and makes them look very professional.

The Conte felt pens came in a metal tin of 10 (also available in 20) brightly coloured thin tipped felts. The nibs are very strong so when the kids go all out colouring their masterpiece you don’t have to worry about them being pushed in. They can also last for up to 3 months (wow) without the lids on although they do come with lids that click on to keep them properly. They’re made from water based ink which means they wash out because someone ALWAYS draws on something they shouldn’t don’t they?! It wiped clean from the kitchen table easily.

As you can see the kids had a great time trying them out, tongue out for concentration. All the best artists do that don’t they? They are both just the right thickness for drawing Minecraft characters that my son is obsessed with currently!

Overall I was really impressed with the quality of both sets and the children have continued to use both since we opened them. The Conte set I think would also make a lovely present for someone who enjoys adult colouring as the tin they come in is lovely.

Made with 45% natural juice and 55% water, as well as nutrients that support immunity, bones, and teeth (scientifically proven with EU health claims) – Nurture Fruity Water+ contains no added sugar and less than 1 teaspoon of naturally occurring sugar per 100ml.

With three children of their own, they were on a mission to create a children’s drink that not only tastes delicious but is healthy, thanks to its natural goodness. Driven by a firm belief that if children consume less sugar from an early age, they will be less inclined to develop a ‘sweet tooth’ and more inclined to make healthy consumption choices later on, Lucie and Derek have focused on flavours that kids love. Nurture Fruity Water+ is all about nurturing our little ones’ healthy habits for life. Out with sugar, and in with flavour!

We do this on rainy days too (plenty of those here in Wales) to stop the kids from climbing the walls! They’re all family friendly so no need to worry about violence or naughty words! lego-movie-dvd-covers-justice-league-batman-superman
