REVIEW: Furry Reversible Jacket From Cherry Crumble (YB)

I was sent a Furry Reversible Jacket to review from Cherry Crumble.

This jacket is a gorgeous addition to any boys wardrobe and is available in age 9 months to 12 years.

The jacket is reversible - wear the check design on the outside and your child is snuggled full of warmth from the furry brown lining inside, or for bear hugs, go for the fluffy and furry brown on the outside and a stylish and cool check lining.

This jacket is perfect for the in between weather of autumn and spring and is great for keeping warm on the walk to school  or for fun times in the park. We got Marley to wear the jacket to the park to see how well wearing it was and if it provided enough warmth for the autumn.

Marley absolutely loves this jacket! As soon as he saw it, he loved its furry look and couldn't wait to wear it!

Marley said he found his jacket really warm and that it felt nice.

It is well made and hard wearing. Cherry Crumble clothing is high quality childrenswear, and there is something available for children everywhere. Marley is 4 years old, so I requested size 4-5y and it is a good fit for him with room to grow as he is only just turned 4 years old. 

Cherry Crumble has a huge range of fashionable, affordable clothing for boys and girls from 0-12 years old. Delivery is fast & efficient and shipping is available worldwide with a 4-6 day turnaround.

You need to check out Cherry Crumble on social media too...

FAMILY: Hallowe'en Cakes & Trick Or Treating (YB)

Today was of course, Hallowe'en...

Me, Marley and David made some Hallowe'en brain cupcakes. They were very tasty brains!

In the evening, Marley dressed as Chucky from Child's Play and Paul and David took him trick or treating as I'm not well. Paul and David said he didn't need face paint, but I think he'd have looked much better with it!

FAMILY: Pizza Making Fun (YB)

To save time and complexity, we bought some ready made pizza bases, but Marley had lots of fun putting his own toppings on!

He put on his pizza sauce, grated cheese then lots of pulled ham and tinned pineapple - yeah, it was the cheats way, but he had fun and that's all that matters!

REVIEW: Ski Jump Game (YB)

I was sent Drumond Park's new Super Ski Jump game to review with my family...

The Ski Jump game is a fantastic game for 2-4 players, age 8+ that is loads of fun!

It's fairly quick and easy to set up - on first use, you've got stick some stickers on for the characters on the ramp, but it doesn't take long.

The game itself is very easy to get the hang of. It's age 8+ but Marley, who is 4 years old, played with us and had no problems - in fact, he won every time!

You pick which character you want from the long skiis, snowboarder, bath tub or sledge, then you choose which height you want the ramp at and try to perform a number or tricks to score the most points - more flips (while in the air) equals more points, and going under or over the banner or hitting the ramp gives you more points and you get a load of points when you land standing!

Each player gets 3 turns to try and get the most points and win. You can use a different character each time, some characters earn you more points than others based on difficulty. Paul was really terrible at it - he has no sense of timing!

You put your character at the top of the ramp, turn the handle and try and time it well when it hits the bottom to flip your character.

This game is definitely great family fun whether you're old or young! We've played it together loads since we've received it and it's already become a family favourite!

This game really is great for all ages - David (who is 16) also really loves playing it, so it would make a great gift for a teen! 

It's a fast, action-packed game that will have you all laughing, it really is a lot of fun!

If you run out of scorecards, you can download new ones here.

Super Ski Jump retails at RRP £19.99 - for more information and stockists, visit the Drumond Park website or visit them on Facebook or Twitter.
