Sylvanian Families - Panda Family 18/04/2015

Panda Fun

Sylvanian Families - Panda Family My daughter is a huge fan of Sylvanians and in every set that she gets, there is always a little A5 piece of paper which shows a selection of the other items available. On the run up to Christmas, she kept pointing out that she wanted the Panda family and luckily, I managed to pick some up for a good price. Price & availability The set of four figures retails for around £15 and is widely available in most toy shops and online from places such as Amazon, eBay etc. Lauren has loved Sylvanians since I gave her set of pig triplets at the age of three and I have noticed that the range often gets discounted during the summer months so this is when I tend to stock up ready. I picked these up from Amazon at a cost of £7.85 which I think made them quite a good purchase. The box The pandas come in a small blue and white box which has a large clear panel to the front so you can see exactly what you are getting for your money. One of Laurens favourite aspect about the set is that to the back of the box is a little explanation story about each member of the family along with their name, she always tried to remember their names but I can guarantee within a couple of hours of me throwing the box away, she has made her own up. One of the reasons why I like this element so much is reading is one thing Lauren doesnt enjoy doing therefore anything that gets her wanting to read, gets a tick in my book. The set The name of the family is the Bamboo family, it consists of four figures, mother ...

Ikea Malm 6 Drawer Chest 17/04/2015

A fab set of drawers

Ikea Malm 6 Drawer Chest A couple of years back, we decided to invest in some new bedroom furniture for Lauren as the cheap set we had purchased from Tesco’s was too small (and also it has started to fall apart). On a trip to Ikea, we spotted the Malm range and decided in purchase a couple of products from the Malm range, this being one of them. Price & availability The Malm range is exclusive to Ikea and can be purchased online or in store, we chose the white units as I felt these were more suitable for Laurens room and they are currently priced at £79. Ikea does have a stock checking facility if like me you want to check they have stock before making a wasted journey however you cannot reserve online. What I will say is Malm is one of their popular ranges and in the past, we have looked at them several times and there was always plenty of stock. The range What I liked most about this product was that there was a huge range of different sized units available so I knew we could have the same ones, as well as this unit, there is a 6 drawer unit which is stacked 2 x 3 drawers so would be suitable for a TV unit or sideboard, a 4 drawer unit, a 3 drawer unit, a 6 drawer slim unit which is idea for smaller spaces and finally a 2 drawer unit which is ideal as a bedside table. There are also beds, dressing tables, desk, under the bed storage drawers and then accessories to compliment them such as castors, drawer organisers and glass toppers. The range is also available in different colours, along with ...

Morphy Richards 300256 Breeze 16/04/2015

Makes Ironing a Breeze (well nearly)

Morphy Richards 300256 Breeze Considering that we only iron clothes as and when we need them, we seem to have got through more irons in the 15years we have lived together faster than any other appliances. We are now on our 6th iron and this was the last one we purchased and what we are currently using now. Price & availability The iron is widely available from most department stores, supermarkets and places such as a Amazon, Argos and eBay. I ordered mine from Tesco Direct on a Sunday afternoon and it was ready to collect from my local Tesco Express by 4pm which I was really impressed with. It cost me £19.95 and luckily I was able to double up my Clubcard points so it didn’t actually cost anything. The iron I had never owned a Morphy Richard iron before but when ours broke on the Sunday morning, I had to borrow my mums iron for a couple of days and both the hubby and I commented how much we liked (well, as much as you can like) using it so this is why we decided on picking a Morphy Richards iron. Because this is a well-known brand which has been going for a long time, I was happy to make the change to this brand. When it comes to irons, to be honest, I didn’t really know what technical information was good or bad but this has the following, so what I did was look at the water capacity, the is 300ml so it does hold quite a bit and also the power, this is 2200watts. This does have a stainless steel base as opposed to a ceramic one and although we have only had for a few months, the base has stayed ...

Ikea Lack Side Table 16/04/2015

Still going strong

Ikea Lack Side Table I love trips to Ikea and picking up bargains, one item which we purchased around 4 years ago was a Lack side table for my daughter to use as an arts/craft table. I paid around £6 but the table actually retails now for £8, it is available online and in store and you can actually check stock availability online so as not to have a wasted journey. It comes in a variety of colours; birch, black, brown, green, oak and white, there are also high-gloss colours of red, grey and white. We choose the red one as this fitted in with the colour scheme of Laurens playroom. The table comes flat packed and assembly was really easy, the instructions are very simple and it took my partner less than 5 minutes to attach the 4 legs. Once assembled, the table measures around 55cm (length) x 55cm (width) x 45cm (height). I found the height is really good, we had the table when Lauren was around a year old and it wasn't too high and she can still sit comfortably at it now. The table weights around 4kg so it is really easy to move around, yet despite this, the table does feel really sturdy. In the Lack range, you can also purchase a variety of shelves, TV stands with or without castors and coffee tables. Overall, I would recommend the table, after 4 years of use, it is wearing very well, the table is used daily and none of the laminate has started to lift or split (which is great considering the amount of water and fluid which have been split on it). We choose one of the glossy colour options; ...
