Drumond Park: Bang On review & giveaway

Published October 21, 2017 by Bizzimummy

Today we have a brand new game from the lovely people at Drumond Park.

This is Bang On. One of those very fast quick thinking type games which keeps everyone interested.

There’s a board, a machine that resembles one of those arcade weight banging machines, lots of cards and a hammer. 


The object of the game – get around the board to the finish space. 

 Playing the game – Bang On is intended as a team playing game. There are only two playing pieces, so two single players could play if they so wished but it’s better in small teams. The non playing team draws a card and dependant on what colour space of the board the other team are on, one of the three questions are asked.   
The Bang On unit gets banged with a hammer on the first answer from the playing team. The team members then shout out all their answers with a Bang of the hammer for each one, thus causing the banger to rise and give extra seconds. Once the banger drops to the bottom, or ten answers are given in time, the team then move the playing piece the number of answers given and then play passes to the other team. 

 Along the board are various spaces with words. Landing on one of these can either help or hinder play. These include “Extra Bang”, gag a player and bust spaces. The bust spaces will have numbers and this means the playing team must give at least that many answers to be-able to move along the board.


Challenge cards are available to be used by the non playing teams if they dispute any of the answers given.

It uses a lot of brain power and really got us thinking about some of the questions. 


When it’s just me a my children playing, Jordanna tends to team up with me and Ryan will help Izebella out; who by the way has no problems joining in with some of the questions even tho she is only 5 years old. The game being designed for 8 year old and upwards, so still a few years above her age ability level. 

 The banger unit needs batteries but that’s really the only setting up that is required. This game costs approximately £27.99 from Drumond park.

Shark bite game review + Giveaway

Published September 1, 2017 by Bizzimummy
“Just when you thought it safe to go back in the water!”
🦈

Drumond Park brings us Shark Bite! A ferocious man eating shark who eats just about anything, hungrily waits for an unsuspecting hand; and then!!!


Snap!!!


This shark is one hungry guy. Eagerly closing his jaws at random, making unsuspecting game players jump with fright. 

Our latest game from the lovely Drumond Park people has certainly had us all on edge throughout the Summer holidays, almost making us never want to take a dip again! 



And on a slightly more serious note, such as game play and rules! Well it’s simple. 2-4 players each take turns to roll a dice. The dice only has ones and two on it in the shape of fish. The player then has to use a small plastic fishing rod device to pull various plastic objects from the open sharks mouth.


It sounds far too easy to be scary doesn’t it? Well it is to an extent, especially considering the game needs no batteries! Well if a player pulls the wrong piece and old sharky realises what’s going on then he will quickly snap his jaws tightly shut, chomping away on anything remaining in his mouth, yes that includes fingers, hands, even noses if your too close. It’s best to hold the rod at arms length at all times and you just never know when the sharks mouth will go. 


Unfortunately for the player who gets caught out, they have to put back all their previously caught objects and start from zero. This is what keeps the game going for longer as there are only 12 pieces to be hooked out. 

The winner is the player with the most pieces once all the pieces have been fished out.



This is a combination of one of those old retro magnetic fish catching games combined with the old 80s spooky game of “I Vant to bite your finger” bought into the 21st century. 



It makes us feel on edge when our turn is near, almost wishing the player before us gets caught by old sharky so that we have a better chance of not being. Then slowly hooking our piece hoping not to get those jaws near our fingers🦈




Who would of thought a fishing game could be this fun. 



Shark bite is a game by Drumond Park  designed for families and children ages 4 years and over. rrp £24.99.

Kids lighting from Ginger Snap & giveaway

Published June 26, 2017 by Bizzimummy

Ginger snap are a design led company specialising in unique gifts and light products. There range includes lights for kids or teenagers too, many of which come with an emoji theme like this happy little lamp. 


This happy smiley lamp runs off batteries so no need for trailing cables and has a simple on/off switch. Izebella uses this at night time in her bed to help keep the monsters and robots away. It does not get hot and gives a nice bright glow so she can see but still sleep as it’s not overly  bright. 


The same batteries have been in this lamp for a good few weeks now and it is used most nights for several hours. Therefore it does not use up much juice. One of these costs £25.00 and with most children and teens having a thing for emojis at the moment, it does make a good bedroom accessory. 

They also have emoji lightboxes too. These are plastic display boxes which come with letters, images, numbers and light up to display messages.


They come with 65 letters, numbers, symbols and 51 emoji symbols and images all on plastic see through cards. These don’t require a mains plug or wires either but it does need 6 AA batteries. 


The letters simply slot in on 3 rows and you can get up to 8 of the cards on one row. It does of course look much more effective when switched on in total darkness.


You can write whatever you wish using the included letters, such as birthday messages or even notes or just mess about with the emojis.


This light box costs £24.00. If I was to make a suggestion to improve this product then I would recommend adding some sort of a slot or pull out tray on the back so there is a space to put the many letters and cards, otherwise it means either keeping the box, or finding somewhere to store them all or them becoming lost. 

And if you like the light box then maybe you could win yourself one. 
GIVEAWAY

Ginger snap are giving away one of their light boxes. To be in with a chance of wining one, just click below.

Choc nibbles & win some! 

Published June 19, 2017 by Bizzimummy

I’m sure most of us parents who grew up in the 1980s/90s will remember these! 


The memories of coming out of school and straight into the local shop to buy a quarter of choc nibbles  for 30p with left over dinner money or (if we were lucky!) pocket money.

I loved and still love choc nibbles. If you don’t remember them, then maybe you just didn’t get out much. The best way to describe them is like a mixture of soft caramel, mixes with choc lick (another old favourite) and maybe a bit of ground biscuit and something else, then coated with chocolate and made into little sticks which taste delicious. 

It’s a shame how most corner shops have changed over the years, I loved looking at all the plastic sweet jars behind shop counters frantically browsing for the choc nibs.

 Although the shops may have changed and the majority of the cheap sweets in big jar memories are long gone, I am happy to say that Choc Nibbles are still around and here to stay.


You see I have discovered a place on the internet that loves those old fashioned chocolate sweets just as much as I do, it’s even called Choc nibbles. Their tasty treats aren’t available via the website but their are several stockists around the UK, including one just a few minutes away from me. 

The choc nibs can be purchased as jars or in bags or from sweet shops by measure. 

I never understood what exactly a quarter was, which we all would ask for as kids. A quarter of what exactly? Who knows but it was always a pretty big paper bag full. 

The bags contain 250g of sweets, yes even the measurements have changed over the years. 

These taste just like I remember. It is possibly the only thing that hasn’t changed about the nibbles over the years. 

They also make a slightly different variety too. 


These are similar in taste but appear to have been a little jazzed up with an extra shiny chocolate coating giving them a smoother and brighter appearance. Thus less cocoa powder on the hands like the original version. 

They do a few other versions of chocolate nibbles too such as toffee crumble nibbles and a Jammie version too. Also original choc lick, remember the chocolate dust stuff in white paper bags, that we dipped wet fingers in and licked off? Then by the time half had gone the bag got soggy and we ended up with chocolate dust all over our white tops! Oops!!


It’s like being a kid again with all these sweets! 

Giveaway 

I have two bags of choc nibbles to give away. If you want to win them then just click the link!

The giveaway is for two bags of choc nibbles and will close on July 3rd 2017.


Seventh Generation skin friendly products & Giveaway

Published June 13, 2017 by Bizzimummy

Seventh Generation began across the Atlantic in the USA and are fairly new to the UK. Their items include household products for laundry and cleaning and are designed for people with skin allergies, eczema and other skin conditions.

In our house it’s my eldest daughter Jordanna who seems to randomly suffer with an array of undiagnosed skin problems. These include general skin dryness where patches of skin will feel rough like sandpaper, various sensitivities which the rest of us seem to be immune too (i.e flea bites) and random rashes and spots that appear from time to time. We just don’t know why or what causes any of it, except that her skin appears to be sensitive to many things. I can only guess that certain types of soaps, bath products, laundry detergents and household cleaners add to her skin problems so it can often be difficult to know what to use. 

The products from Seventh Generation are made without the usual harsh chemicals and synthetic fragrances which can irritate skin. There are no dyes or artificial brighteners so the majority of the cleaning/laundry products will be fragrance free and colour free or clear liquids. 

Their packaging is made from 100% recycled bottles making the products kinder to the environment as well as the skin. 


These are the products which I have been using recently, all of which are available to buy in Tesco. I have two big laundry liquids.


Both of these do similar jobs – wash the clothes. There is not too much difference between them. They are both clear and free of dyes and fragrance. The differences being that the one on the left is super concentrated meaning I don’t need to use as much to wash clothes and it’s also much better on tougher stains such as chocolate, tomato, pizza and even blood. This one also comes in an unsusal container which looks a lot like cardboard on first glance. It’s actually repurposed fibre. This bottle can apparently be used as a plant starter once the liquid has gone. 
Seventh Generation also sent me two of their household cleaning products.


Again probably not much difference between the two. The green one is an all purpose cleaner meaning I can use it pretty much anywhere. The lack of harsh chemicals make it safer, not just for skin but for my furnishings which can become stained or damaged if using incorrect products. The all purpose cleaner is fine for kitchens, bathrooms, doors, window ledges and pretty much anywhere else that needs a clean, baby items included. There is however a picture of a cooker on the front of the bottle which may be slightly misleading. This product is fine for cleaning  my hob and the cooker exterior but I don’t think it is strong enough to clean inside the oven properly. Unfortunately I still need to use the very nasty stuff for that job. 

The blue cleaner on the right is more for glass products and surfaces. I have white units in my living room and a few mirrors around my home so this is a good product to get them clean and shiny without the awful cleaning smells. 
My final two products are a natural washing up liquid and natural toilet cleaner.


For those of us who don’t normally suffer from sensitive skin problems (myself included) have your hands ever itched, stung or felt slightly sore or dry after washing dishes? I know mine have a few times. I actually put it down to the water being too hot or not drying them correctly but I am now fairly sure that it’s the chemicals in the washing liquids, no matter how mild that cause the slight irritation. 

This natural free washing liquid does exactly the same job as all the other dish washing products and that is get the dishes clean. It still forms bubbles and still cuts through grease and tough dish and pan stains, even oven dishes. It just comes without the scent and added colour. 

The toilet cleaner is one of the products that does come with a slight scent. I suppose it has to really given that part of cleaning a toilet is also making it smell good rather than of what usually goes in it (YUK). The fragrance – Cypress and Fir is made purely from essential oils and botanical extracts. It smells totally different from the usual heavy bleach toilet cleaners, it can still cause skin irritation if it gets directly onto skin (as with most products) but is much safer than most other toilet cleaners. 

All of these products can be bought in Tesco. I am hoping they will bring in more of the range of products to the UK soon as the USA does have a bigger selection. 

GIVEAWAY

Seventh Generation are giving away two baskets full of their products (as above) to two lucky readers. Yes you get the basket too!
