Blue Sky Studios and director Carlos Sadanha (Rio, Ice Age) brings you FERDINAND.
A charming tale of a giant – lover not a fighter – bull with a big heart. After being mistaken for a dangerous beast, he is captured and torn from his home. Determined to return to his family, he rallies together a misfit team for the ultimate adventure and proves you can’t judge a bull by its cover.
Inspired by the beloved book “The Story of Ferdinand,” FERDINAND (Voice of John Cena) is a heartwarming family comedy adventure with an all-star cast that includes John Cena, Kate McKinnon, David Tennant, Sally Philips, Gina Rodriguez, Anthony Anderson and many more.
We was sent the DVD to coincide with the Digital Download, Blu-ray and DVD release on 16th April.
The boys were really excited to watch this new animation. I must say it was the quietest my boys had been all Easter holidays. From the moment the film started to the end, I didn’t hear a peep from them-apart from giggles.
“My brother and I watched ‘Ferdinand’ and we thought it was hilarious, but also upsetting at times. Ferdinand is a great film and I would recommend it to all ages, young and old. Our favourite bits were the ‘Last Battle’ and ‘The bull in a China Shop’ because they were both funny and dramatic. My favourite character was ‘Paco’ who makes a great comedy duo with Ferdinand, his ‘brother’.”
Ferdinand really is a love-a-bull rogue who inspires the world by just being himself. He is unlike his stable mates whose ultimate goal is to face a matador in an arena, Ferdinand just wants to smell flowers. He has an unlikely bond with a young girl (Nina)
The movie is delightful with cute animation. A story of love and friendship that makes a great family movie.

From the producers of The Snow Queen 2 comes Sheep And Wolves, a fun, animated adventure featuring the voices of Tom Felton (Harry Potter) Ruby Rose (Pitch Perfect 3) Jim Cummings (Winnie The Pooh) and China Anna Mcclain (Black Lightening).
In a magical faraway land, in a picturesque village nestled among green meadows and rolling hills, lives a flock of carefree sheep. But their idyllic and stress-free solitude is interrupted when a pack of wolves sets up camp in a nearby ravine.
When the wolves’ retiring pack leader Magra (Cummings) announces that his future successor must prove his worth by defeating their rivals, the powerful and blood-thirsty Ragear steps forward. But, the only wolf brave enough to challenge him is Grey (Felton), the pack’s favourite but hopeless goofball. Grey has to prove to everyone, including his Fiance, Bianca (Rose), that he is worthy of becoming a leader. However, Grey faces a slight mishap and ends up taking a magic potion; given to him by a travelling gypsy rabbit, Mami, that turns him into a…Ram! After going back to the den and being chased out, he finds himself within the company of the sheep and quickly befriends Moz, a simple-hearted and kind ram and Lyra (McClain), a good-natured and naive young ewe.
Will Grey find his way back to his pack and his girlfriend Bianca?
Grey loves to mess around and be the centre of attention, but after spending time with the sheep, he soon learns what is important and being true to himself. Grey quickly becomes a leader that Magra would be proud of, but not for the wolves…
“From here on out, we’re not a flock- we’re a pack! A pack of wild sheep!”
We found the film to be very similar to the plot of The Lion King, although not as serious. Grey is kind and quick-witted. There were parts of the film that had the children laughing and you quickly become a big fan of Grey, wanting him to grow up and take on responsibility.
The film features mixed messages but we saw it about friendship and how to deal with other groups who are different to you. Friendship comes in all shapes and sizes and when it’s not expected.
My children enjoyed the humour and story of the film. It’s a great, feel good, family film.
It was interesting to hear Jim Cummings voice as Magra, I grew up being a big fan of Winnie The Pooh, He is a very talented man.

I love a good craft project, especially when its one that combines summer and neon pens.
I had never heard of Gel-a-peel before, maybe because my boys are more into football or climbing trees. But when we was contacted and asked to join in on the gel-a-peel summer campaign I couldn’t wait to introduce it to my boys. The box itself doesn’t really appeal to my boys as it was a little girly but once I showed them what the pens could do they were showing signs of interest.
We was sent a gel-a-peel box which contains 3 glow in the dark pens and a pair of sunglasses for the boys to decorate and customise to their own taste.
What’s in the box:
3 glow in the dark gel tubes
16+ design templates
Gel tray with shapes and letters
4 designed tips
1 plastic sheet
The pens are easy to use. They come in 30g tubes and made from silicone. You can create any fashion accessory in 4 easy steps
Choose a template or create your own
Pick a colour gel pen and a tip
Place the plastic sheet over the chosen template and trace over it. Use some tape to secure it to the table (your drawing sheet may slip otherwise) Once finished leave it to dry. Each template tells you how long it takes for it to dry
Once dry, peel it off and now your ready to wear/use it
We found that when you are tracing over the template onto the plastic sheet you need to make sure that the lines are nice and thick, be generous with the pen but try to keep it even. Overlap the lines and reinforce thin spots. Our bangle, in the shape of a cherry snapped when we was putting it on, but the magic of these pens is that they can easily be fixed. Just apply more gel to the break and wait for it to dry.
The boys made me a lovely bracelet following the instructions. They also used the tray to make some letters and using the gel pens they attached them to the bracelet
Cute isn’t it!
These pens are such a brilliant idea, fun and easy to use.
My son couldn’t wait to decorate his sunglasses with the pens.
He chose the fine tip to decorate around the frames and a the star tip to leave little stars on the arms.
The tips included are round tip, rake tip and star tip. Remove the cap and plug from a gel tube, then twist on your chosen tip. The longer you squeeze the bigger the shape will be. These tips help you create different effects.
Once you have finished with a pen and tip just place the lid back on the pen and clean out the tip with the tool provided. I found that the next day, once the gel had set and dried I could easily pull it out of the tip ready to use again with another pen.
The Tray is easy to use, not only does it have the alphabet in capital letters but also, numbers, 4 emojis and 5 different shapes. You use the round tip to completely fill in the shapes and then use the cleaning tool to remove out any bubbles in the gel. Then use the squeegee tool to remove any excess gel from the tray. Once your chosen shapes are filled in leave them to dry, loosen them with the cleaning tool and just peel them out ready to use on your designs.
He chose to use some of the shapes to decorate his sunglasses
We left our sunglasses over night to completely dry out before we wore them.
My son was really pleased with his glasses, it makes them extra special as they are his own design. He couldn’t wait to try them out in the sun.
They have been packed and ready to use on holiday. His very own customised pair of sunglasses, an original that he knows that no one else with have. This pack of pens are glow in the dark so will be ideal for customising any accessory ready for the summer festivals
The pens are a really good idea for any child to get creative, they are advised for children over the age of 8.
My only complaint about them is that the advertising is aimed at girls and really boys will enjoy this activity just as much. As you can see from my son’s face in the above pictures, he enjoyed the activity and the outcome of his design.
Could you imagine learning to drive before the age of 17?
At Young Driver, a center that gives children from the age of 10 an opportunity to get behind the wheel and experience driving with a qualified instructor. Children can learn to drive at one of the 60 UK centers where they are taught in a specially designed training area. The training area includes; sharp bends, mini round-about, parking spaces, traffic lights, and junctions.
Young Driver follow the Driving Standards Agency curriculum, which means that what 10 – 17s learn at YOUNG DRIVER is exactly the same as they will learn on the road at 17. The children are given a Drive Diary to record their progress and this is one of the most important parts of the programme – moving forward is the aim!
Their personalised Drive Diary charts individual progress and current level of driving and is completed by the instructor after each driving session. The instructor talks them through it and explains where they could do with some more help or whether they can progress to the next step. The Drive Diary can be given over to their driving instructor when they begin their official lessons at the age of 17 and the instructor will then know what their experience level is.
My son, who is 14 years old, was lucky enough to be invited along to the Bluewater Center to experience for himself what it is like to drive a car. The center itself, is situated within the blue car park at Bluewater shopping center. There is a section of car park outside that is specifically designed for a beginners’ zone, that has a full road system with traffic signs, road markings, junctions and parking zones. In this way it encourages responsible driving.
As soon as we had arrived, he was called up by his instructor and taken along to the car that he would be driving. Before he could turn the key he underwent a safety check and was taught how to use the mirrors, signal and when to manoeuvre. He had full control over the steering wheel and pedals, however the instructor had pedals that would over power his if an accident were to happen. He started off slowly, to get used to the feel of the steering and clutch. Not long on the road and he was soon snaking in-between cones and maneuvering the car into a figure of eight in the parking lot. Whilst, he was driving he was continuously given advise and constructive criticism from the instructor. He spent 60 minutes out on the road, building up his confidence and learning some important skills of control and responsibility. He now knows how to drive safely and properly, putting him leaps and bounds ahead of other 17 year olds.
His instructor was fantastic, professional and made him feel safe at all times.
Since his experience, he has become more road aware and is definitely more confident and prepared for when he can hit the road.
We made a video of his experience
My son certainly left with a big smile on his face and is now eager to get behind the wheel.
I would highly recommend the experience for any young child who wants to get ahead of their peers and become a much safer driver. A very valuable and worthwhile experience.
30 minute lesson – 10-17yrs – £34.95
60 minute lesson – 10-17yrs – £64.95

Phantom Boy is a highly anticipated new film from the Academy Award-nominated writers and directors of A Cat In Paris is a stylish noir caper, set in the shadowy streets and alleyways of New York.
A touching story of an 11 year old boy, Leo who discovers he has a special power that he uses to help lieutenant Tanner fight a very dangerous villain,The Face.
Leo has a secret. A mysterious illness has transformed into a phantom boy, able to leave his body and explore the city as a ghostly apparition. While Leo is in hospital, he befriends Alex Tanner, a New York cop who got injured whilst attempting to capture a nefarious gangster who has taken control of the city’s power supply, throwing the metropolis into chaos. The pair unite and form an extraordinary duo, using Leo’s phantom powers and Alex’s detective work to foil the plot and save New York from destruction.
Alex and Leo are both in hospital both different reasons. Leo is in for treatment for hos illness and Alex is in a wheelchair with a broken leg, hurt from attempting to capture The Face. Leo is able to become invisible and fly through walls, his body stays still whilst he has an outer body experience. Leo is a big fan of the Police and couldn’t wait to introduce himself to Alex and help him save Mary, a journalist, who falls prey to The Face when she goes in search of him. With Leo in the air and Alex on the ground they become quite the fighting pair. They have 24 hours to save the City from a deadly computer virus.
The film is very touching, portraying Leo as a brave young man. It is an action packed, simply animated and a heart warming film.
It has its humourous moments from the villains trusty side kicks and vicious tiny dog, Rufus. The film shows us about the power of teamwork, friendship, family, and courageous acts of kindness. Leo’s illness pulls at the heart-strings yet The Face and his gang bring humour to the film.
My children aged 14, 9 and 5 all enjoyed watching this simple animated fantasy film and found it to be entertaining. They were engaged the whole way through. Leo spends a lot of time in his hospital bed due to his illness and gets the freedom that he yearns by becoming phantom boy. He feels free from the disease by soaring up high in the sky over buildings and flying through walls.
Phantom boy is a beautiful story but also a brilliant superhero film and will leave you feeling warm inside.

My boys love their clothes and they don’t need an excuse to dress up in their best clothes. They are forever rummaging through their wardrobes searching for outfits to wear. Putting together new styles and always asking me if they look smart. They have their own styles which they have, over the past few years, put together by themselves. The middle boy will always be found wearing a Dickie Bow or a Trilby hat and the youngest likes to dress smart. Their bedroom floor has always got the odd item of clothing scattered across it from where they have got changed throughout the day.
I love that they have a passion for clothes, as I studied fashion when I was younger, It’s a nice feeling to know that even though I don’t have a girl to follow my passion for fashion the boys enjoy it too.
Just before Christmas the boys were sent a few items of clothing from House Of Fraser.
I chose a particular t shirt for my 9 year old. It is a Bike print crew neck top by Howick. He loves to wear unusual clothing, something that makes him look different from his friends.
The print is large and fun with bicycles, helmets and water bottles scattered around the T-Shirt. My son is an outdoors person and likes nothing more than to go out around the block on his bike. This T-shirt suits his personality to tee (excuse the pun)
The material is 100% cotton leaving it feeling soft against the skin. It looks lovely teamed with a pair of jeans and a blazer over the top. It’s the ideal smart casual staple for any boys wardrobe. The T-shirt is a size 7-8 and it fitted my son perfectly. His height is 125cm.
What does the boy say “I like the bike T-shirt as it is very comfortable to wear and soft on my skin. I also like the print on it”
Now this has got to be the most adorable little outfit I have seen my youngest wear. He had me in tears when he wore it. I am hoping that we have an invite to a special occasion so that he gets to wear it again before he outgrows it
He was so proud of himself wearing it, he was beaming from ear to ear. And you have to admit, he looks pretty dapper in the tailored suit.
The quality of this suit is of high standard. The stitching is neatly done and the material is soft and comfy. The last thing you want is a child in a suit that is uncomfortable all day long,
If your child has a slim waist then the trousers are ideal, as they have an adjustable waist line that can be tightened by pulling the elastic on to the button
There are two usable pockets on the back of the trousers and are finished off with a pressed central crease down the front of the leg giving the overall look of the suit a polished look.
Along with the trousers and jacket there was also a waistcoat.
The silk lining follows throughout all three items. You will find this suit has all the design features you would want from a smart suit for any age.
Inside pockets on the jacket
Button hole on lapel
Box vent on the back of the jacket
Lined and stitched to a high standard
Buttons on the jacket cuffs
Metal clasp trousers, easy to use for young children
Adjustable elastic waist
Detailed belt on the back of the waistcoat
Buttons of reasonable size for little hands to grasp
The suit is not sold as a three-piece, each item is sold separately.
Both items are of good quality as you would expect from a high end department store. In my opinion they are lovely staple items for any stylish boys wardrobe.
Jacket £46 Trousers £26 Waistcoat £24 Current prices as of Jan 2016 Take a look at some of the boys clothes that House of Fraser have to offer here
We was sent these items for the purpose of this review, photos and opinions are of our own.
This Remote Control GUP-K is ideal for children who want to take their adventures that little bit further. The GUP-K is inspired by the alligator and it is the ultimate swamp utilty vehicle. With its big wide, powerful, sharp jaws that open and close as it races along, it is the perfect toy to take your child’s imagination to its limits.
Use the remote control for the swamp chomp action and cut a path through the fallen trees and swamp debris of the forest, allowing the crew to safety. The GUP-K also features a water cannon to put out any of those swamp fires that may be in your way and two detachable swamp speeders which are ideal for missions that need to be reached quickly across the water.
On the television show the Octonauts missions take place in water, the GUP-K is not intended for water play but it can be used outdoors. We took the GUP-K into the garden for an adventure. As the GUP was chomping its way through the fallen trees and overgrown swamp
It came across Kwazi who had come into danger with the fast growing weeds, it was time for Barnacles to steer the GUP-K through the foliage and save his friend
I love how my son’s imagination was ignited and come alive with the toy.
The GUP-K is hard-wearing and sustainable. The large wheels are durable and perfect for outdoor as well as indoor play. The wheels can manoeuvre over most terrain. What makes it special is the GUP can be used by its remote control, as the GUP-K glides along its big powerful jaws chomp up and down.
The remote control is an ideal size for little hands, with easy to use controls. The controller moves the GUP-K forward and backwards. It also has the ability to attach to other GUP controllers. On the reverse mode it also turns so the GUP doesn’t just go in one direction
The two swamp speeders can be removed from the GUP and used separately. They have little wheels so they can also be used on the floor to race across to any creatures that are exposed to harm
The small holes on Barnacles body mean that he can be attached to the swamp speeder and at the GUP controls
In case of a swamp fire, the water cannon can be used along with the water dart to save the swamp from any danger of quickly being engulfed by flames (or Mummy as she is passing by)
What’s included in the box
Water Cannon and dart
2 Swamp Speeders
Batteries are not included. It requires 4 AA for the vehicle and 2AAA for the remote control
The vehicle and all of the accessories are strong and durable, they managed to withstand quite a bashing from my boys.
My boys really enjoyed playing with the new Octonauts remote control GUP-K, they introduced it to the transforming polar vehicle and played along together using their imagination and making up stories. The toy allowed them to explore the world of the Octonauts
The RC GUP-K is available from Argos priced at £39.99. An ideal gift for christmas or birthday.
We was sent the vehuicle for the purpose of this review.

Each Mini Mudder event is held alongside Tough Mudder. Each challenge starts on the hour every hour from 9 – 4. We was lucky enough to be invited along to the South London event held at Holmbush Estate.
Dad and the eldest boy have participated in local mud events in previous years so they were looking forward to seeing if lived up to its name sake and if it really was as tough as it offered to be. The youngest two have only ever looked on in awe from the sidelines at such events.
When I told the boys about the Mini Mudder challenge they were ecstatic and couldn’t wait for the adventure to begin. My boys are very competitive, so they found it hard to understand that the event wasn’t a race and that it was just for fun.
We arrived at about 11 and was surprised to see how bloody busy the place was, hundreds and hundreds of mud searching, adrenaline pumping adults all around gearing themselves up for the Tough Mudder Run. The atmosphere was great, everyone was in good spirits including the boys.
After a quick look around we made our way to the mini mudder arena, which wasn’t far from the finishing line to Tough Mudder. Whilst the younger ones were getting ready for their little adventure, Dad and older brother were making their way to the Tough Mudder start line.
Each Mini Mudder wave starts on the hour just after a little fun warm up with the mudder organisers. They are all then walked towards the start line and then let loose on the course.
The boys along with all the other children that took part were quick to get as muddy as they could. I mean who wouldn’t! Children allowed to get in as much mess as they can with their adults consent, that doesn’t happen that often.
It was lovely to see my boys helping each other over the obstacles and giving each other a helping hand when needed. They normally fight and squabble, but for one hour in that day they actually got along. I even witnessed them holding hands at one point. For once there was no sibling rivalry only support and friendship. There was no stopping them, they whizzed around the course in record time, taking on the obstacles like a giant in a playground. They showed determination and took on the challenges set with ease.
A fun day was had by all at Tough and Mini Mudder, Mummy was a little tired watching her boys get very muddy but it was worth it seeing the smiles of achievement on their faces. Each adult and child that competed the course received a headband as a keepsake. The children were rewarded with a Fruit Shoot drink at the end, it was much needed as well.
There were showers to clean yourself up and wash away as much mud as possible but we heard that they were quite cold so decided on changing in one of the toilets into clean clothes and just wiping away the mud with some baby wipes.
They truly did conquer and all that was left to do was wash all of the mud out of their clothes (which took a good soaking in the bath for a couple of days)
If taking part I would advice you to take along spare clothes and shoes, baby wipes, black bag to place dirty clothes in, a towel in case you use the showers and cover you car seats with plastic.

We was invited along to participate in the event for the purpose of this post.
MINUSCULE is this half-term’s must-see animated adventure film for the whole family that follows a battle between tiny beasts for the spoils of an abandoned picnic, arriving in cinemas May 27th, 2016.
A fantastic tale taking place at ground level, MINUSCULE is the perfect half term treat for all the family. Based on the popular Cbeebies TV show, MINUSCULE blends stunning CGI animation with live action backdrops to really transport little ones to the undergrowth where they’ll embark on a huge adventure with this half term’s tiniest heroes.
To celebrate the release of creepy – crawly animated adventure Minuscule (in cinemas on 27th May 2016), we have been given Bug Hunting Safari Kit to seek out the tiny creatures and build them homes. Here’s how we got on.
The Interplay Bug Safari kit enables children to explore the fascinating world of bugs and mini-beasts in their own back garden. The safari kit contains tongs, magnifier pot, tweezers, lens and a brush.
My boys love to be outdoors and can spend every minute of the day outside running around and enjoying nature. They specifically like to hunt for bugs and believe that they may just find a new species. Their fingers and clothes are always being soaked in hot soapy water after spending hours digging up my garden searching for mini beasts.
They couldn’t wait to try out the Bug Safari and was soon using the field lens and bug tongs discovering fascinating creatures that lie underneath blocks of wood and that live within the grassy area of the back garden. It wasn’t long before they had a woodlice and a centipede to look at in the magnifying pot.
The tweezers are ideal for catching larger bugs, but be careful not to damage them and the brush is very useful in catching the smaller creatures as you can sweep them into the pot. The kit is a really fun way of finding and identifying bugs.
Along with the equipment in the kit there is also a book that contains a tick list of mini-beasts and bugs, did you knows and where to find specific creatures.
We found out that centipedes do not have 100 hundred legs as the name suggests but that they generally have between 30 and 70 legs. Using the magnifying pot we counted the legs on the centipede that we found and found that our one had 34. We didn’t keep them in the pot for too long, just long enough to investigate the creepy crawlies and then we let them back where we found them.
The boys now have their very own little bug expedition kit in the back garden, all set up at the top of their fort ready to bug hunt whenever they see a creature.
The children really enjoyed the bug hunting and are now really excited to see the film and I’m sure once they have watched the film it will inspire them to get out into the back garden and hunt some more.

With valentines just around the corner why not try crafting a little gift for your loved one? Express your love with something that is handmade.
Yellow Moon are the perfect place to look for themed craft sets and supplies. They are an online store that sell pretty much everything you will need to make that perfect gift for that someone special, wether it be your valentine, a parent or just a friend.
The Heart size is 17cm wide, made from card and has pre-punched holes to weave thread through. The set does not come with any thread or pens.
We designed our heart then weaved our coloured thread through the holes. It was a fun activity, that doesn’t have to be just for valentines. It’s a great way to introduce children to weaving and they can weave however they please, making new patterns each time.
Write a little message on the back for a different way of giving a card.
The Puzzle size 14cm x 11cm and is made from 1mm thick card. They are cute little hearts that can be a card that carries a message and a gift too. Design your heart and then place it in an envelope for your secret admirer to put together again.
We coloured in each little puzzle piece and wrote a message on it after.
We also printed off a couple of our favourite pictures and using some glue stuck them onto the heart. We had to cut the pieces out again using a craft knife. I think they turned out pretty good.
Making cards and presents with a personal touch is so much better than buying something from the shops. I think it shows that you put time, thought and effort into something that is personal and made with a loving touch.
These cute these cards can be for valentines and Mothers day
The 10cm cards come in 4 assorted pre printed designs – cat, dog, bunny and a mouse. Each pack comes with envelopes. Design your card with bright colours, stick on gems and much more. My youngest enjoyed this activity as he is just getting into colouring in and learning how to stay with in the black lines. It helps with his fine motor control.
These are lovely little cards for children to give to their friends and family.
When showing you love someone, why not have a little fun doing it!
Take a look at yellow Moon and see if you can find something to help you with your craft ideas.
