Xupo review & giveaway 

Published May 24, 2017 by Bizzimummy

This is Xupo (pronounced Zupho) 


It is a really basic device that comes in useful for finding possessions such as lost keys and precious lost toys. It is really small, just a small plastic disc shaped device with a hole to put a key ring through. 


They are probably designed with lost keys in mind but I think they could be used on anything that a keyring clips on to. 

It works via a mobile app which is free, and by Bluetooth connection. Setting up takes seconds. When keys are lost with a xupo on, A button can be pressed on the mobile device which will start a sound on the xupo. The sound doesn’t stop until the button is pressed again. It also works the other way around too. If I misplace my phone which happens often then I can press the xupo button on my keys and a noise will sound on my phone until I locate it. 

I have tested Xupo both ways with both xupo keys and my phone in different rooms and upstairs/downstairs and it works really well. How well, depends on the Bluetooth range on the mobile device I imagine. 

No more lost keys or phone for me now! 

Xupo is a new product and was featured on Dragons den earlier this year. Therefore it is not widely available in stores just yet. I’m not too sure on price either at the moment but I can’t see it being expensive. More info can be found on the UK website. And there is also an opportunity to win your own xupo.

GIVEAWAY 

Yes Xupo are giving away one of their devices and all you need to do is CLICK HERE! to take part.  This giveaway will end June 21st.

SuperGeek heros animated series + competition 

Published May 18, 2017 by Bizzimummy


The SUPER GEEK HEROES are a unique group of super-kids… having fun in turn with a mission to learn! Their seven friendly ‘super-powers’ are derived from the three prime and four specific development areas of the ‘Early Years Foundation Stage’. 

​These are… Personal, Social & Emotional Development, Understanding the World, Communication & Language, Literacy, Numeracy, Physical Development, and Creative Arts & Design.  

By introducing “superhero characters” to represent learning and development areas within EYFS, children (and adults) interact more effectively when they understand and relate to their meaning. The use of fun animated 3D characters in this way make children’s learning and development cool, exciting and interesting right through their early years and beyond.

The series is shown on You Tube via many short episodes. They have recently added ten new episodes and I imagine there will be many more to come. All of the episodes are short lasting between 3-7 minutes long. There are 7 main characters in the series and each one teaches children a different thing.

· Personal, Social and Emotional Development – Suzi Smiles

· Understanding the World – Peter Planet
· Communication & Language – Vicky Voice
· Literacy – Jake Jotter
· Numeracy – Mille Maths
· Physical Development – Ant Active
· Creative Arts & Design – Ronnie Rock

Today me and Izebella have been watching a few of the episodes on SuperGeek heroes channel. I think the episodes are perfect for Izebellas age. They encourage learning in a friendly way. The colourful characters each have their own name and personality which children will start to recognise.

The episodes are also really short meaning Izebella doesn’t lose interest in fact she wanted to watch more.

Izebella especially likes Milly Maths and Vicky voice. I think that’s because they are girls in pink/purple. 


Adults and kids can subscribe to SuperGeek heroes channel here. They have their own website too – http://www.supergeekheroes.com/.

COMPETITION 

Yes there’s even a giveaway here too. The prize on offer is – A free 6 month subscription to KidsCast APP where you can download and view Super Geek Heroes on the go or cast to your TV! There’s a bit of information about the app here.

L.O.L Surprise dolls + giveaway

Published May 16, 2017 by Bizzimummy

This is not the first time we have had L.O.L dolls. We received some a few weeks ago but these dolls proved to be very popular in the shops and quickly sold out. They are now back in many toy stores, if you have not heard of these dolls then keep reading.


L.O.L dolls come as a wrapped up globe shape toy. The idea is to unwrap many layers of plastic packaging, each time revealing a small toy or sticker (hidden surprises)

It’s a bit like a solo version of pass the parcel without the passing. Eventually all layers will be off to reveal the main surprise inside! The L.O.L doll.


These dolls are the new collectable craze and there are many of them to collect. On this occasion Izebella found the roller sk8r L.O.L and she comes with a dummy, outfit and roller skates. 


Each one does different things, some of them drink, some change colour in water and other things. Girls will love them because there are so many to collect. 
GIVEAWAY

MGA Entertainment are giving away a L.O.L doll to one of my readers. To win one just click the link below. This giveaway will end on May 30th 2017

A “Totally funky” Gingerbread wallet & a competition too! 

Published May 8, 2017 by Bizzimummy

Well I’m a big kid at heart and love all sorts of weird, wonderful, silly and retro things. My favourite type of store (after clothing of course) is a geek/gadget type place just like Totally funky, who sell all sorts of totally funky gifts.

Now there’s a saying that good  things come in small packages or something along those lines, and just look at this for a new purse. 


I chose this for a few reasons. Firstly I was in need of a new one. The old one was plain looking and worn out, my cards kept getting lost inside huge holes and coins too. And secondly – who doesn’t love an old fashioned fairytale. Yes it’s a gingerbread man themed wallet/purse whatever you wish to call it. 


It is a fair bit smaller than the previous big purse thing I had but it has more than enough space to store my cards, money and small bits. There is a zip pocket inside with a few card slots and a pocket on the outside separate to the main purse part. 

The wallet is decorated all the way around, both inside and out with characters from the gingerbread man story and quotes. 

It is certainly unusual and also very funky. This gingerbread wallet is part of The Once Upon A Time range of bags and purses which  are based on childhood fairytales including Little Red Riding Hood and Snow White. The  enchanting designs feature simple illustrations, pretty bows, cute catchphrases and beautifubattention to detail. 

The gingerbread wallet costs £19.99 and a matching satchel is also available for £39.99. 


COMPETITION TIME

Totally Funky are giving away one of their very funky and rather sweet gingerbread wallets as above worth £19.99. 

The giveaway is run by rafflecopter and you can enter using the link below. You must have a valid twitter, Facebook and email account and be a UK resident to enter. The giveaway will close on May 29th 2017. Onewinner will be chosen at random to win the wallet.

Jelly Belly Jelly beans + giveaway 

Published April 27, 2017 by Bizzimummy


Jelly Belly products are instantly recognisable with their red and gold label. The beans first appeared in the USA  back in 1965 with the mini jelly bean and the first actual jelly bean appearing in 1976  at a Californian ice cream parlour. The first ever flavours of jelly beans were  Very Cherry, Tangerine, Lemon, Green Apple, Grape, Licorice, Root Beer, and Cream Soda.

Since then a lot has happened. The jelly Belly jelly beans are sold worldwide with hundreds of flavours and a fair few different packs available. 

Jelly Belly are now known as Jelly Belly Candy Company.

Jelly Belly are the ones responsible for the rather well known “Beanboozled” packs which I actually refused to try over Christmas when my son got a pack. It’s a box containing ordinary looking jelly beans but each colour may not be the same. It could be a normal flavour or something revolting such as rotten egg or stinky socks. YUK! and I hear that they do actually taste like their revolting name too. Kids seem to love them and they seem good for adult parties too.

I much prefer the more normal flavours. The thought of tasting rotten egg or moldy cheese just does not interest me. I would much rather stick with these.


I have a traditional jelly bean box with a massive 50 flavours. A jewel collection which come with a iridescent sheen a bit like a gem or shiny polished rock. You can see the difference here. 

And finally, one I’ve not come across before is the cocktail mix which comes with a few well known cocktail flavoured jelly beans. 

Jelly beans are good for a sweet fix and also seem to be a popular gift choice and stocking filler for kids. I just hope the Beanboozles don’t make a return this year. 

Each one of my boxes above is 200g and they can be purchased pretty much anywhere that sells sweets and confectionery.

COMPETITION 

Jelly Belly are giving away a selection of their products to one winner. The prize will most likely be the same products as above (subject to availability). This giveaway will close on May 11th 2017. The only rules are that you have to live in the UK and need a valid email address, Facebook and twitter account.

New DC Superhero Girls book series + Giveaway!

Published March 22, 2017 by Bizzimummy

      My 4 year old has developed an obsession with some of the DC superhero girls and very much one in particular – Harley Quinn. Although I have no idea how or when she has seen her as we have not watched suicide squad and nor does she browse many comic books. Izebella begged to be Harley Quinn for world book day at nursery and surprisingly she was the only Harley Quinn in the whole school. 

      We have recently been sent some new books as part of the new DC superhero girls  series from penguin publishers. 


      We have three of the books in total, one being a story type book, an activity scribble book and a sticker book.

      The story book is focused around Wonder Woman who is possibly one of the most well known and oldest female superheroes. This book is way too advanced for Izebella but big sister Jordanna also likes superheroes and anything girly. The book seems to be aimed more towards girls of Jordanna’s age, so around 9/10 years. 

      Wonder Woman™ wants to be the best super hero she can be, and that means going to Super Hero High School. But there’s a lot for the teen super hero to get used to at her new school! Save the Day alarms, a room-mate who shares everything on social media . . . not to mention the fact that Wonder Woman has never seen a boy before.”

      Wonder Woman super hero high – is the first book in the DC superhero girls fiction series by Lisa Yee. This book has an rrp of £6.99.

      Scribble book comes packed full of different activities, perfect for a young superhero who’s having a boring rainy day in or traveling. The pages are full of questions, quizzes, colouring in, mazes, notes and memories. 

      A full 160 pages of activity superhero girls fun. 

      This also costs £6.99. 

      Finally a fun Power up sticker book. Izebella loves this one. It’s full of superhero girl stickers including her favourite – Harley Quinn. 

      The stickers are in the middle with page numbers of where they go, however Izebella tends to put them wherever she feels like including on herself. This book costs just £3.99. 

      All books can be purchased directly from the Penguin website, Amazon and book shops.



      GIVEAWAY
