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.

      Drumond park: Dig in! Review + giveaway! 

      Published March 20, 2017 by Bizzimummy

      This is our new game, sent to us by Drumond park. 


      The concept is simple, find the items that match the images on the card, the actual playing is a little more difficult. 

      Inside the box are 128 coloured pieces which come as all sorts of items, planes, cars, trees, keys, hats, animals to name a few plus several game cards, a game bowl and a timer.

      2-4 players can play and each player begins with 15 seconds on the timer to find 6 matching pieces on their cards. The cards can be played to match the item and colour or just the item regardless of colour which is much easier. Of course it’s extremely difficult to dig through 128 pieces and find just 6 in 15 seconds; needles in haystacks springs to mind! Once each player has their 15 seconds, another 15 seconds is pressed and all players then dig in together using one hand to find more pieces. If after this time, no players have all six items then it goes into an “all in” dig round without the timer and with both hands until one player fills the card. 

      The main difficulties of the game are the pieces being so small and similar sized. The different colours also cause a visual distraction and even I found it hard at times to get the correct pieces. Add to this the short 15 seconds which is not long at all. 

      Overall it is a very simple game, minimal rules, no batteries, no dice and no playing pieces or even a board. It’s also quite fun and it does not take long to play. The winner being the one who fills 3 cards first. Of course it’s one of those games where you can bend the rules or add own twists to it etc. 

      There is one thing about this game that I don’t quite understand and that is the age guide recommendation that comes with it, which is 8 and over. Now I understand the dangers of small parts and playing pieces but this is more a danger for those under 3. By the age of 5/6 years the majority of children don’t put stuff in their mouths. Izebella being 4 years has bits of toys much smaller than the dig in playing pieces. She can also play Dig in without help and is more than able to find the pieces she needs to match the ones on her cards and that’s with the correct colour too. So I am slightly baffled as to why the age guide is set at 8 years.

      Dig in by Drumond park has an rrp of £19.99 and should be available in most good toy stores. 

      GIVEAWAY

      Drumond park are giving away one copy of their “Dig in” game worth £19.99. Please click the link below to be in with a chance of winning it.

      Lottie dolls review + giveaway 

      Published March 8, 2017 by Bizzimummy


      Lottie dolls were launched in 2012 and now sell in over 30 countries. We were first introduced to Lottie a few years ago when my daughter (Jordanna) was a little younger (now 9). As Jordanna is getting a bit big for dolls, it’s now the turn of Izebella to experience Lottie. She now has 2 of the dolls to start with. 

      Lottie dolls differ from other fashion dolls in a few ways. For a start they are slightly smaller, measuring 7 and half inches. All Lottie dolls are the same size and each one comes with a different outfit and it’s own name and personality. 

      The main difference with Lottie dolls is that the dolls are created to challenge negative body image concerns, premature sexualisation and the demise of childhood. None of the dolls come with make-up, high heels or jewellery. If I’m being totally honest, this never really bothered or affected me, I had lots of barbie dolls when younger, however I do realise that things are different these days and more children worry about body image now.Lottie is designed to look like a child aged approximately 9 years old. 

      There are lots of Lottie’s to collect and accessories too. Each one coming with its own theme and own hobby or skill. Izebella has two Lottie dolls. One being the Rockabiility lottie and the other is the new Forest friend who comes dressed in a fairy costume. 

      Both dolls are very different both in outfits and hair colour. Izebella says that Forest friend lottie looks like herself as she has red hair and a fringe. Rockability lottie is all about music and listening to bands. 

      The dolls are fully poseable and made from similar materials as other well known fashion dolls. They can be stood up and propped against a wall, sat down and lay down. 

      Izebella seems to love swapping the clothes and swapping back again and is very happy with her new dolls.

      Lottie even has its own Club to join online which offers discounts and competitions to members.

      Lottie dolls start from about £16.00 upwards. I have not spotted them in the usual well known toy stores unfortunately but; they can be purchased from the UK Lottie store, Amazon, Ocado and eBay. 

                                     GIVEAWAY

      The prize for this giveaway will be one Forest friends Lottie doll. 

      To take part you must be a U.K. resident and enter before March 29th 2017.

      Quinn Lilly home fragrance and candles (review & giveaway) 

      Published March 1, 2017 by Bizzimummy

      March is upon us already and it will soon be time to spring clean our homes in time for the Summer. 

      I do love my home fragrances, I find candles a little hard to use as I have both kids and cats so I have to be careful with flames. I do like my diffusers and have recently received one from Quinnlilly. Quinlilly sell lots of diffusers, scented candles and home fragrance type products and this is my new reed diffuser. 

      The packaging box that the product arrives in is quite pretty and so makes it a rather nice gift to give. This one is Grapefruit and Mimosa and there are three others to choose from costing £12.99 each.

      Diffusers don’t need lighting like candles do and nor do they require batteries or plugging in. The glass bottles come filled with essential oils and the reeds sit inside the bottle absorbing the fragrances and releasing into the home. The reeds just need turning frequently and I turn mine daily.


      It’s a lovely sweet, zesty aroma which makes my home smell much better.
      GIVEAWAY

      Quinn Lilly are giving away a prize from their website. One winner will beable to choose from either a scented candle or reed diffuser in any fragrance. 


      Entering is easy. You just need to be a UK citizen and have Facebook, twitter and email accounts. 

      This giveaway will close on March 22nd 2017. One winner will be notified by email.

      Bamboo Pete review & giveaway 

      Published February 16, 2017 by Bizzimummy

      When I hear the word “Bamboo” I instantly think of Pandas andBamboo Pete is all about cute pandas and panda clothing. They sell t-shirts, vests, hoodies and jumpers and all panda style for panda lovers. 

      I have a very cute hoodie from Bamboo Pete – the Arctic white college hoodie


      Boasting a lovely panda image, company name, drawstring hood and one of those large pocket things on the front to keep hands warm. There are other colours and styles available but I really like white when it comes to clothes. 


      It’s lovely a fleecy inside so keeps me warm, but it does not make me sweat like some jumpers do. I doubt I’ll have the hood up much but here’s a pic anyway.


      It’s a lovely style warm top, just perfect for the U.K. weather. The sizes start at XS all the way to XXL. I have size S (adult) which is the second smallest size. The top gives quite a lot of room as sizes seem generous. I would of easily fitted in the XS one too and I’m normally a size 8/10. 

      One of these hoodies costs £35.00.

      Movie night goodies – Tommy Tucker + Giveaway

      Published February 8, 2017 by Bizzimummy

      As a family we like to do occasional movie nights. This is where we will choose a movie or two to all watch (on a none school night) and bring in a few munchies, pop etc. Not always the healthiest choices but it’s not every night.

      Now when this big box arrived packed full of munching goodies; we knew it was time for another family movie night.


      The box was sent to us from Tommy Tucker. They sell many movie style snacks including popcorn, potato snacks and even candy floss. 


      Some of the popcorn, along with the candy floss even comes in movie style resealable plastic tubs, meaning we can just place them on our knees and help ourselves as we wish.


      Each tub contains a litre of popcorn. The candy floss looked just like a tub of fluff and Izebella loved it.

      These large 120g sharing bags also went down really well. 

      Jordanna seems to enjoy the salty varieties of popcorn more than the sweet or toffee. With the share bags it’s 142 calories per serving tho I’m not too sure if a serving means the whole bag or not.

      My favourite was the new luxury popcorn bags. These are just delicious.

      Each bag is 200g of pure indulgent toffee popcorn goodness. Choose from cocoa, salted caramel & vanilla, tropical coconut and raspberry sensation. All of them taste amazing and the bags can be very addictive once opened. It all just tastes so nice and creamy aswell as crunchy. 


      All Tommy Tucker products can be purchased via the website in multi packs and of course, you may just spot them in your local cinema too.
      PRIZE GIVEAWAY 

      If you liked the look of all those goodies above then enter this giveaway. The winner will also receive a large box of Tommy Tucker goodies; just perfect for a movie night.

      Entrants need to be UK based and have valid Facebook, twitter and email accounts. Closing date is February 28th 2017.
