REVIEW: Cadbury Dairy Milk Big Taste Peanut Caramel Crisp (DXB)

I was sent the Cadbury Dairy Milk BIG TASTE Peanut Caramel Crisp bar to review and boy have I got a lot to say about it.

Firstly I would like to tell you the back story of this chocolate. It is inspired by the nations love of nuts. It was launched on the 1st of April as a new addition to the Dairy Milk family.

It features a peanut paste with rice crisps layered with caramel and chopped peanuts and to top it all of it is smothered in chocolate. Yum!

Weighing in at 278g the question you'll be asking yourself is to share or not to share. I didn't want to share! It is delicious!

REVIEW: Hallmark Star Wars Range (YB)

I was sent a great big box of Star Wars goodies to review from Hallmark celebrating Star Wars month.

Here is our unboxing video starring Paul and Marley...

We are big Star Wars fans in our household, so we were mega excited to be offered this review opportunity for Hallmark! As you can probably tell...

Hallmark do a huge selection of Star Wars goodies - a fantastic range of greetings cards for any occasion, the ones that particularly caught my eye are the 3D 'shelfie' style Chewbacca & Darth Vader cards, as well as the pop out box card. Most importantly, they feature all of your favourite characters. I'd say they are ageless too, not just for kids, so suitable for fans of all ages.

Then there are their fab new Itty Bitty's - the Itty Bitty's are a really fun range of Star Wars soft toys - perfect for your little Star Wars fans - Marley is loving his Itty Bitty toys and they're the perfect size for little hands. He's had lots of fun with them! Again, you'll find all of yours and your children's favourite Star Wars characters.

And so you've got your Star Wars fan some Itty Bitty's & a card from the range, but what to give them in... Well, Hallmark even offer some fab gift bags in varying sizes too. They've really thought of everything!

They even do bottle holders - look at this fab Darth Vader bottle holder...

Basically, if you're a fan of Star Wars, or know a fan, you're bound to find some fantastic Star Wars gifts at Hallmark, irrelevant of if you're a fan of The Dark Side or The Light Side!

I was very impressed with all the Star Wars goodies available, so fellow fans will love the gifts on offer.

You can see the range on the Hallmark website and they are all available to buy at Amazon.

REVIEW: PAIRFUM London Large Reed Diffuser Bell (YB)

I was sent a PAIRFUM London Large Reed Diffuser Bell to review...

I was really glad to be able to be involved in reviewing the PAIRFUM London reed diffuser - because their diffusers sounded special.

There are lots of reed diffusers available, but a lot of them are cheap ones and I worry about what is in them.

PAIRFUM London offered something special - natural/organic essential oils, a fragrance that lasts for 6-9 months and is free from carrier solvents. They are also lovingly handmade in the United Kingdom by PAIRFUM London Artisans.

From the moment your diffuser is delivered, you get a sense of something special, the box it is packaged in itself is quite beautiful and come with a scent button so you can instantly grasp the depth of scent the diffuser will provide.

I've been using the diffuser for over a week now and every morning, our living room smells beautiful. The scent is as amazing as the first day I used it.

REVIEW: Hape Eggspressions (YB)

I was sent Hape Eggspressions to review with Marley and this is what I thought...

Eggspressions is an educational toy for 24m+ children. It comes with 6 eggs and 6 stands as well as a book to read along with them.

The point in Eggspressions is to teach your child what people are feeling and this is a really fun way of doing it. The book tells a story that allows your child to match the eggs expressions to their bit of the story. The story is engaging and the illustrations are captivating.
Humpty's cousins are invited to a party but they need a plan to get over the castle wall. By sharing their feelings and working together, they find a happy solution.
The six eggs are Happy, Sad, Shy, Angry, Excited and Afraid. Marley enjoyed learning about their expressions and he quickly got the hang of which was which, and even tried mimicking them. I made up stories for him too, to correspond to each egg which he enjoyed.

He is almost 3, so he does grasp the concept of some feelings, but some he was unfamiliar with and so this helped him understand feelings he had not encountered before.

The Eggspressions from Hape are sure to provoke hours of egg-citement within your little one this Easter. Enjoy the 6 characterful eggheads as you follow their journey through the scrambled feelings idea book. Watch as children learn to identify and express their feelings while developing hand and eye co-ordination, perfect for any early explorer. The Eggspressions are suitable from 24 months + and are available to buy online for Argos for £19.99.
