Slot Together Clockwork Dinosaur ~ Product Review

Tobar have a fantastic range of slot together clockwork toys.
They bring new techniques together to make a fun and interesting toy.
Not only do you get the fun of building them you also get the fun of
playing with them afterwards.

I will say that the building stage of the toy isn't suitable for all
ages of 6+.
Some of the parts are small and fiddly to put together.
You also have to be careful that you put them in the right place.
Some of the parts aren't suitable for taking apart and can break if you try to.

In the box you get;
All the pieces are in sheets and there are full
instructions for you to follow.
You also get your wind up part.

It's best to take each piece out as you need them
as they aren't marked on the actual piece.

It's also handy to have a blunt pin to push out any gaps
that haven't come out naturally.

Slot each piece together and then when you have finished you have your
Why not get a couple and have dinosaur races.

Hair Chalk ~ Product Review

Available direct from Kiss Naturals


The whole ethos behind Kiss Naturals
is to provide you with fun products that you and your
children can make themselves.
The ingredients are all safe, natural products so
your mind is put at rest
that you can use the products safely.

Not only that they are great

In this box contains everything you will need
to be able to create brilliant coloured hair chalks.
You can have fun making them and you can have fun using them.

The hair chalks are coloured using Mica which is a safe, 
natural mineral that flakes into thin sheets that help to give it its natural glittery sheen

In this pack you get everything you need to make 6 different coloured chalks.

First when you open the pack you will find everything you need to get started.


You get the molds, coloured powders, mixing spatula, mixing jug and purified water.

First you measure an amount of water into the jug.

Add the powder.

And mix.
You will be amazed how quickly the powder
turns into a liquid mixture.

Then it's just a case of putting them into the molds.
You leave them for a few hours in the mold
and then a few hours to completly dry.

Then it's time to have some fun!

They are super easy to use and easily wash out so no stress
when it's time for school.

We had such fun making them! And even more fun using them!
Little Red's friends have already asked where they can get there own :-).

Glycerine Soap ~ Kiss Naturals ~ Product Review

If you've ever wanted to try soap making then I would
highly recommend #KissNatruals Glycerine #Soap Kit

Me and Little Red had the most amazing fun
making these.

Within the kit you get EVERYTHING you will need
to make 16 Soaps.

You get;
  • Blocks of soap
  • Colour
  • Scent
  • Molds
  • Jug
  • Spatula
  • Jug Holding Tray

You get 2 colours and two scents to choose from;
Aqua & Pink
Jasmine & Tropical

You start off with placing one of the blocks of soap in the
jar and placing the jar in the holder.
After placing the tray on a microwavable plate
you then place it in the microwave.
(This bit is recommended for adults only as the soap gets hot).

Once you take your soap out of the microwave you can see
it's melted and ready to be coloured. 

Once you've added your colour of choice
(we chose aqua to start),
you can then add your scent.

Your soap is now ready and you can pour it into the molds.
Each block of soap makes 2 soaps.

You have four molds to choose from;

Then within 15 minutes your soaps have hardened
and they are ready to take out of the molds.

And hey presto you have some cute and fun soaps!

I cannot recommend this set highly enough.
I would even go as far to say I would recommend it for anyone
of any age.
If you want to try and make soaps this is a brilliant way to try.
Everything is so easy to follow,
the instructions are clear and easy to understand with clear
pictures to follow. 
The instructions are in multiple languages.
The thing I liked about it the most is the time it took.
It was so quick to make each set of soaps that Little Red
couldn't wait to make another set.
They were also ready in such a short amount of time
that Little Red didn't lose interest.
He loved it so much we have since made all 16 soaps
and he is wrapping them up to give to relatives
as presents.

The glycerine soap is vegetable based and the fragrances are also naturally derived.
All of the Kiss Naturals kits are made with all-natural recipes.
They have a fantastic range of kits
that can keep everyone having fun for hours.
Whats better than Safe Natural Fun


So which one would you choose to make?
