Christmas Sorted With Worlds Apart!

With Christmas fast approaching if like myself you have children of different genders and ages it can be a bit difficult finding something to suit each child given they all have their own personalities and likes / dislikes! It can be difficult knowing where to look.

That's where WORLDS APART comes into play.
With their wide range of gifts suitable for various ages/genders/characters you really can find something to suit each child.

 I have range of ages/ genders from little man almost 15 months, lil Mr K 7 years, Miss L 9 years, and mr J almost 10 years and for a grand sum of approximately £87.97 I'd be able to get each of my 4 children a gift they'll each love all with their favourite characters. (I should hereby state that whilst this is the approximate price of this lot I was in fact sent these items free of charge in return for my opinion,however given knowing how much my children will like them I'd be more than happy to pay the price!)

So what did we get for such a broad age range?

Well let's start with my eldest Mr J,
Mr J is very much into Teenage Mutant ninja Turtles at the moment and Worlds Apart do a great range, We received the Turtles Raphael GoGlow Pal
This one retails at approximately £24.99 which is a fair price given that A it is Mr J's favourite character, B, It has detachable swords adding play value, and C it's  GoGlow meaning it's eyes glow up..How cool?!

For little Miss L she has a few favourites which are Hello Kitty, Disney Princess's and One Direction .... Niall to be precise! (All these characters are available from Worlds Apart)
So she has a One Direction Microphone Alarm Clock.
What girl does not want a microphone and one of her favourite band at that?!
the One Direction Microphone Alarm Clock retails at approximately £12.99
It's fluffy too which little MIss L loves fluffyness.

Next for little Mr K, He too is into TMNT so for him we got the Turtles junior Ready bed  which retails at approximately £29.99
I love that this is everything needed for sleepovers with it's inflatable base, built in pillow and cover it comes with a pump and a carry case so perfect to take along maybe to nanny and Grandads.

Lastly for little Mr D we got the Thomas The tank Engine Safe N Sound Lumiglow Wall Stickers.
these retail at approximately £20.00.
These are a collection of 50 Thomas & Friends vinyl wall stickers to create a fun Thomas scene.
I particularly like that these are sound activated meaning that as Mr D gets a bit bigger and understands more, He'll be able to activate them himself by clapping or such.
I just know he is going to love looking at his favourite characters at night and watching them glow i think this is great.

So there you have it for an approximate sum of £87.97 that's all 4 of my children with a gift they'll love.
I plan to leave these from Santa and I just know they'll love them.
I can't wait to see there faces and I shall blog about their response early in the new year.

Have your children wrote their Christmas lists yet? maybe they have asked for character specific things? 
Then do be sure to check out WORLDS APART and check out their fantastic range, I'm sure you will find some real delights, but be quick Santa will soon be here!
Get your Christmas sorted with Worlds Apart!

Cowabunga Dudes!!

Bet you can't guess what we got up to yesterday!

What if I mentioned the names have links for famous Artists, they have a love for Pizza, And 'April'...
Yes I bet you do now!

Yesterday I took the 3 elder kiddies to the cinema and we watched Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie.
What's even better is the cost!... it cost us a big fat £0.0p

So I like competitions as much as the next person I wont lie.
I recently commented on a post on Fruit Bowl's Facebook page they replied saying I'd won some Vue cinema tickets, Lovely!

Hubby uses his Tesco clubcard and had accumilated £7.50p worth of points, so he went to Tesco and got some treats, And I loaded up my handbag. Lord knows with the price of tickets and sweets/popcorn drinks ect it can begin to get ridiculously expensive for a trip to the cinema, So bonus there.

We were planning on going to see Boxtrolls but when we got there we found that they were showing TMNT so we decided to watch that, And we're glad we did.
What a great film i think I may have gotten into it a bit more than the kiddies.

If you haven't yet seen it I really would recommend it!

when was the last time you went to the cinema and what did you see?

How We Spent Our Halloween!

We had a fun spooktacular night Friday celebrating Halloween!

After our previous weekend of doing spooky arts and crafts the kiddies woke up so excited Friday morning.
after we had some breakfast we watched tv and then after lunch we played some Halloween music and the kiddies had a good boogy giggling away.

In the afternoon we decorated the front of the house.

At 4pm I said the kiddies could get their costumes on, wow you should've seen their excitement!
I painted their faces and at 5pm we were ready to go.

We'd been invited out with our friends so we made our way to their house via a couple of houses on the way that were decorated spooky so they just had to knock!

When we got to my friends house we all went trick or treating, 3 adults and 10 children .... That was fun and the children got loads, each of their sweetie tubs were full to the brim.

After around 45 minutes trick or treating we went back to my friends house for a buffet which the kiddies loved, eating yummy food and showing each other what scrummy treats they had.

At 7pm it was time to make a move and head back home where we handed out sweeties to children that knocked.

Aside from the fact that one of our pumpkins somebody decided to walk by and kick it to pieces, and another got stolen... Yes really!
We had a lovely fun Halloween 2014 and the kiddies got enough sweeties to last them..... ooh a good couple weeks at least.

Did you do anything fun? let us know in the comments.
