Witches, Puddle Jumping, Olives and Bathtime, Reviews for October

Room on the Broom app features all the lovely characters from the Julia Donaldson book.  There are lots of finding games - for example find the witches hat falls and you tap where you think it is. My favourite was the dragon eating chips game. I still can't work out how to ride my broom to collect the letters to make the word owl. I will have to ask big man in the morning! He enjoyed playing it, but I think that it is probably better for a pre schooler.

Daddy Pig's Puddle Jump app is a nice little game for any Peppa Pig fans out there. You can chose to be Daddy Pig, George or Peppa. You then help them run through muddy puddles. You need to jump over bushes as they slow you down. We have got to level 9 and as far as I can see the levels don't get particularly harder, just a bit longer. I am unsure how long this game will hold the boys attention, but for now they like it and they even demonstrated sharing the other evening with the 2 player mode - so well worth £1.49 for that!



I used to hate green olives, but when I fell pregnant with little man I couldn't get enough of them and now I still love them. Oloves come in foil packs, meaning that you can take them to work or on a picnic without the fear that you will get an oily mess over your bag. They tasted good, not quite like counter bought olives but much better than a jar. I was excited to try the chilli ones but they were quite mild and by far the best was the lemony love. I also like the fact that they only have 50 calories in a pack!





We often buy Matey Bubble Bath and were sent this bath book to review. I am a book lover and think it is important for the boys to see books everywhere including the bath. It is a short book about the Matey characters. It is a limited edition and can only be won in competitions. However, I have been offered 5 to giveaway to my readers and it would make a nice stocking filler. Please fill in the rafflecopter for your chance to win one. Good luck!
