Born Gifted Teacher Gifts

I cannot actually believe it’s that time again when the kids finish up for their summer holiday break ready to drive Mum’s and Dad’s bananas all over the place. If you want to give that special teacher a little something lovely then Born Gifted is a great place to go!

We had a snoop around when they got in touch and decided that this Personalised Classic Wooden Pen and Pencil Box Set fitted the bill perfectly. I don’t like to buy chocolates as I’m sure they must end up with them coming out of their ears!

This lovely set includes a wooden box made from beech and includes any message you choose over 3 lines. The pen and pencil are also personalised with a name making this a great gift for anyone who enjoys writing. There’s a whole host of occasions you could buy it for not just as a teacher gift.

Heelys X2 Fresh Review

Little Lady was extremely excited to find she was trying out some brand spanking new Heelys, something she’s been asking for for a while however up until now her feet have be too little for her to wear them. Now her feet have grown enough for her to try them she couldn’t wait to get them out of the box when we were sent some by Skates to review.

The Heely’s came in a brightly coloured box and contained 1 pair of Heelys X2 Fresh Shoes in Fuchsia / Navy with the Navy X2 logo to the heel and the white Heelys logo to the tongue. The uppers are a canvas material.

The Birthday Party

There was once a Mum, a birthday party virgin if you like. Full of hope and excited expectation at their offspring being invited to a jelly and icecream filled shindig. Their child will be the most popular, being welcomed into the cool kid crew, join in all the party games and maybe, just maybe be the Musical Chairs champion of the world! She’d burst with pride she thought to herself. It’ll be so amazing she mused strapping her little bundle of joy into the car. The poor cow would soon learn she was very, very wrong.

She would come to realise kids parties are NOT fun. They are in fact the opposite of fun, they are almost as fun as having a giant cactus inserted into your rectum and twisted (righty tighty, lefty loosey)  but not quite. She would have a rude awakening of the rudest kind.

For she would soon find out that she would not be welcomed into the party by Mum’s high fiving her, handing her prosecco and kids elbowing each other, whispering about the amazingly cool Mum that just walked in. Instead she would have the card and present unceremoniously snatched out of her hand, she’d spent hours in The Entertainer mulling over that sodding present. Did she go cheap because after all she didn’t even know this kid? Did she go extravagant so she wasn’t forever seen as that cheapskate cow that went to the pound shop? She went middle of the road in the end and just hoped that Birthday Kid wouldn’t be allowed to open it in front of her and show her the huge, huge disappointment in his eyes.

She would then find no friendly faces and slink off to the darkest corner and there she would stay. Sometimes with her kid, the one who refuses to join in, clinging snottily to the front of her painstakingly chosen blouse or all alone like a cast aside bag of bollocks.

12 times the kid will want to go to the toilet so she has to do the crossing the dancefloor walk of shame while everyone wonders who the hell she is and why she was invited. If she’s lucky she might burst a balloon on the way over so everyone eyerolls  at her inadequacy and fat feet.

To her horror when the super fun character makes an appearance Kid will run screaming from the building like Freddy Krueger just rocked up  and asked for a Gangnam Style dance lesson. To be fair Peppa Pig does look as though she’s spent the last few months in a crack house but who is she to judge.

The food though, they’ll eat the food, of course they will, when the buffet announcement rings out the kids will smash each other out the way for their sugar rush, like a bunch of mini football hooligans clawing each others eyes out for a jammy coconut biscuit. The poor kid who takes the last chocolate finger can look out – they’ll get a bonk to the brain with a pinata stick because how bloody dare they?

The poor Mum clinging to the last little bit of hope that’s slowly but surely pouring out of her and pooling at her feet like a puddle of piss would make a last ditch attempt to join in by dragging the kid up to Cha Cha Slide like the other Mum’s who have their shit and coordination together. Kid will not be impressed. Kid will kick off and pull away screaming that they don’t want to, out of the corner of her eye she sees pompous Mum dialing the number for social services whilst tutting along to the Justin Bieber song that’s just blasted it’s way into everyone’s ears.

She will thank her lucky stars when the lights go up and everyone is expected to bugger off, Kid grabs a party bag on the way out and she’s wondering why Party Mum had that weird smirk on her face. She wouldn’t have to wait long to find out as the minute she sits relieved in her car seat she will be deafened by the high pitched squeal of a bastarding plastic yellow whistle.

For the love of God. Now she understood.

Children’s Birthday Gift Guide

It’s that time of year again when both my youngest children have their birthdays – 9 days apart! It can be hard work and expensive. When you ask what they’d like you’re either answered with a 4 page list or a resounding “I dunno”. Here I list a few inexpensive items that make great present ideas for both boys and girls. giftpup-emoji-notebook-little-brian-paint-sticks-tangle-angel-tangle-cherub-find-me-a-gift-chocolate-chops-smiggle-goo

Moj Moj Series 🙂 Review

Moj Moj are cute new fun squishy collectables from MGA Entertainment, they’ve abandoned the traditional series numbering and chosen to use emoji’s instead so this first series is Series 🙂.

We were sent some to open and see what we thought. The Moj Moj come in brightly coloured triangular packets so look quite different to the usual flat, square blind bags. Inside the packets are 2 Moj Moj – which is great as you usually only get 1 item in a blind bag – and a checklist of the Moj Moj you can collect and tick off. Continue reading
