Disney Palace Pets : Review

Miss A was in for a treat this weekend, as she had a lovely package of Disney Palace Pets delivered for her to play with.  Well they have been played with non-stop! With her love of Disney and animals this play set couldn’t have been more perfect.  There is also an app you can download for free from the app store, here’s all the info HERE.

This is a new range, aimed at 3-6 year old children, so they can collect all the pet friends belonging to their most loved Disney Princesses.  Great as a birthday gift I think, or if you were buying treats for your child this half term to play with. Continue Reading

My Top Toys Picks from ELC (Early Learning Centre) for 2013

I love ELC – The Early learning Centre, the vast range of toys is brilliant but I also love that there is a very strong brand of creative and toys that involve the child’s imagination.  For me its the go-to toy shop whether I am buying for my child, or toys as present for my friends children.  So as 2013 draws to a close, I thought I would pick out my top picks of toys with the ELC.  You never know, if you still need to pick up that last present, or once wrapping realised you have something essential missing, this may be just what you have been looking for.

Furby Boom : Review

Furby Boom : Review

Furby’s have been around since (can you believe it) 1998, and have come in so many different incarnations since.  The Furby Boom is this years (2013) a very brightly coloured egg-shaped creature, with large pointy ears.  Both of my daughter are quite different ages, 4 and 11, and yet both had a Furby on their Christmas wish list this year.

It is promised to be completely different and even more fun than it predecessors.  It combines physical and digital ways to play with it, I think this will keep children interested for longer.  You can interact with your Furby Boom and in turn shape the Furby’s personality.  That’s going to be a really interesting thing to watch over time, as both of my daughters will have one so we can compare them the differences.  With this new generation of Boom you hatch and raise digital Furby Furblings.  The Furby Boom has more than double the speech as the previous Furby, it even remembers the name you give it, and has 5 new personalities to discover, on top of all that, it’s intriguingly hatching a new generation…

Furby Boom

I was sent the image above , and our very own Furby to review and nurture. I love that my own family have all been captured as a Furby, and it really did make me chuckle, as they even got my blonde hair in there.

I have been playing with our Furby Boom over the weekend, and whilst the children have not been about, and so far I have been very impressed.  I’m only at the beginning stage so far, as I have only had it a few days, so I will come back and add more to the review as we play more with it.
Furby Boom
He is talking mainly Furbish at the moment, I think we have a way to go before he is speaking English.  Some of the favourite phrases of a Furby are :
  • wee-tah-kah-loo-loo: Tell me a joke.
  • wee-tah-kah-wee-loo: Tell me a story.
  • wee-tee-kah-wah-tee: Sing me a song.
  • u-nye-loo-lay-doo?: Do you want to play?
  • u-nye-ay-tay-doo?: Are you hungry?
  • u-nye-boh-doo?: How are you?
  • u-nye-way-loh-nee-way: Go to sleep now.
  • u-nye-noh-lah: Show me a dance.

Similar to previous Furbys, Furby Boom does not have an off switch. So in order to make the Furby fall asleep, you need either pull the tail for 10 seconds. Place Furby on its back for 15 seconds or place Furby in quiet room and do not play with it.

Furby Boom :rrp 59.00 (though, there are some deals out there) you must make sure you have 4 AA batteries ready for Christmas morning, as they are NOT included.

I have been sent the Furby above to review.  My opinions are however 100% honest.
