Half Term with Hasbro

It is holiday time for us. The kiddies are on half term this week and it has been interesting so far. We are off for a mini vacation later this week and I can’t wait. It has busy here with us planning for our trip and keeping the twins busy. It is their first half term at Big School, so they are still getting used to the fact that there won’t be any school this week. Thankfully, they have been busy this half term with Hasbro. Hasbro kindly sent the kiddies  a backpack each full of Hasbro goodies, and that has kept them very busy.

Hasbro Half Term Goodies

The backpacks are really pretty. I love the simple design and colours they got. The backpacks came personalised as well (that bit has been photoshopped out for various reasons) which I think makes them even more special. Each backpack included a personalised pencil-case and notepad, pens, markers, erasers,  YELLIES, Lost Kitties, Lock Stars and my daughter got My Little Pony Cutie Mark Crew. These items have been a life saver this half term.

The Secret Diaries and YELLIES

These items have kept the kiddies very busy this week. They love reading and writing, so they have been spending time writing in their little cute notepads. My daughter calls it her secret diary.

The YELLIES toys have also kept them very busy. My son got the  YELLIES  Klutzers while my daughter got the YELLIES Flufferpuff. Their YELLIES collection is growing quite quickly and they are so fascinated by them. If you have started shopping for Christmas presents, I recommend you check out YELLIES. The Kiddies had the opportunity to take a toy each to school the other day, to share with their friends as an incentive, and they went for their YELLIES. I heard it was a hit with all the kids in their Reception class.

My Little Pony Surprise Mini Figure & More YELLIES

My Little Pony Surprise Mini Figure was one of my daughter’s favourite items in the backpack. She is a true My Little Pony fan, and keeps collecting the ponies. Her collection is continuously growing bigger and bigger. And she was so happy to get this mini pony. The pack included a figure, accessory, case, and collector card.

The Lock Stars

The Lock Stars is also a hit with the kiddies. They find them very fascinating and were able to unlock the padlocks and decorate their backpacks themselves. It was fun to watch them find the right keys! These lockable surprise toys are a hit in our house now. I like how colourful and pretty the Lock Stars are. We will definitely be shopping for some more of them.

The Lost Kittens

With the Lost Kittens, the kiddies enjoyed digging for the hidden treasures and they were pleased with what they found. A Lost Kitties figure and 3 more surprises were hiding inside each pack.

These Hasbro goodies are definitely going to keep the kiddies very busy this half term. With the miserable weather outside, we are spending most of the week indoors before jetting off for our holiday, so I am pleased they are loving these items. They are definitely great half term survival items and we are thankful Hasbro sent them over.

What do you think of these items? How are you spending the half term?

The Kiddies Review YELLIES

October is here and that means Halloween is around the corner. And the kiddies are having fun yelling with YELLIES! My twins love playing with toys especially when they are new and shiny. So they were super excited when these new toys dropped on our doorstep the other day.


Yellies Review image


YELLIES is a cute colourful spider pet that responds to your voice. They are are sound-activated and respond to talking, yelling, clapping, singing, and even music. Great toys for loud toddlers like mine!


YELLIES Spider Pets ImageYELLIES Klutzers IMAGE


The kiddies got Klutzers – the green and orange spider, as well as Toofy Spooder – the purple spider. And they have been very busy with them. My boy has taken to Klutzers as one of his favourite colours if green, while my girl is loving Toofy Spooder as her favourite is purple. They enjoy watching the eyes of their spider pets light up. They also find how they move and respond to voices very fascinating. It is so much fun to watch them play with their new YELLIES. 

I found it very easy to get the YELLIES out of the pack. Some toys manufacturers make toys so difficult to unwrap with all the many fastenings but these were dead easy. I also love the fact that these spider pet toys came with 3 x 1.5V A76 alkaline batteries included already.

These toys are great gift ideas for children 5 years and over. They would make ideal gifts for Christmas, birthdays and even as a Halloween treat! They are 12 different YELLIES to pick from, with 5 currently available, so you can browse through Hasbro website for the right one. Each spider pet has a unique personality so discover your favourite. You could also collect them all for £12.99 each. They are available at SMYTHS Toys, Amazon, and other stores.

The Kiddies Review My Little Pony, FurReal and Star Wars Chewie

The Kiddies have settled into their new school routine and are loving it. I am happy they loving it so much. I was a bit worried about how they would cope with the long days in school as they only ever did half days in pre school, but I had nothing to worry about. They have been good. Tired but good, and that works great for us.

Once they get back from school, and the snacks have been consumed, they like to play with their toys. So you can imagine how excited they were when they got some new toys courtesy of Hasbro.






The FurReal Rock-a-too Show Bird toy is very entertaining. It keeps my kids entertained for hours non stop. They love how colourful it is, and the 50+ sound-and-motion combinations keeps them occupied. This is now one of their favourite toys and I can see why.


FurReal Show Bird Review Image FurReal Show Bird Review Picture


This FurReal toy has three modes of play. And it is full of songs, dances, and laughs. It is such a cool toy with the funny jokes, sounds and movement. It even records voices and plays them back musically.

The FurReal Rock-a-too Show Bird is available in all major retailers and it is great for kids 4 years and over. I think it is a great toy pet to have for kids who want pets. My twins have been asking for a pet for sometime and I know we are not ready for that commitment now, so a toy pet would work great instead.

FurReal Rock-a-too Show Bird would definitely put a smile on your child’s face no matter how serious they try to be.

My Little Pony Playset Image


My daughter is crazy about My Little Pony. She has seen all the episodes on Netflix, and we all saw My Little Pony Movie last year at the cinema thanks to her obsession with the ponies. Her favourite pony is Princess Twilight – Princess of Friendship. She collects the Ponies as well, so we have them all over the house. So I knew she would love this My Little Pony Friendship is Magic Collection Twilight Sparkle Playset. It is a hit in our house.


Princess Twilight Friendship Collection Image


This playset is a great gift idea for My Little Pony fans and kids that love role play. I like the school concept as my kids just started Reception last week, so this playlet is very timely. It comes with 24 accessories and a Twilight Sparkle pony figure. The entryway beams with light, and the scroll on the roof lights up to show images from the series. It is definitely a beautiful playlet. You can get this in most good retailers and it is appropriate for kids who are 3 years and above.

Star Wars Chewie Review Image


The Kiddies love this Star Wars Ultimate Co-Pilot Chewie. It stands 16 inches tall and features more than 100 sound and motion combinations. The kids love the signature Wookiee-talk back interaction, and how Chewie responds to external movements and sounds. It roars back everytime the kids make a noise.

Star Wars Ultimate Co-Pilot Chewie features poseable legs and can respond with a variety of facial expressions for fun surprises. It comes with the iconic bandolier and satchel.
