Crate Creatures Surprise & Bashers – Review

Crate Creatures Surprise & Bashers – Review

*We were gifted our Crate Creatures Surprise products for the purpose of this review. As always, all thoughts and opinions are our own. 

 

Recently we were sent a Crate Creatures Surprise and Crate Creatures Basher for our girls to test out. They love a toy review, so they were very excited to find out what was in the box. Both Crate Creatures are bright, colourful and a little bit gruesome. They make an array of noises and had our girls suitably amused!

Crate Creatures Surprise – What does it do?

We were sent BLIZZ, the ice monster from the land of blizzards. He arrived inside a crate, secured by a chain and a padlock, just to make sure he couldn’t escape! There’s a crowbar attached to the side of the crate to help you break your creature out.

The girls loved this element of the product, it’s great that you can put your creature back into the crate and break him out as many times a you like.

BLIZZ makes 45 sounds, including chomping noises when you feed him his ice lolly and when you pull his tongue. You can even record you own voice and have BLIZZ repeat your words in his monster tones. When you press his tail, he flaps his arms and makes a super noisy scene!

Crate Creatures Bashers – What does it do?

Bashers are mini versions of the Crate Creatures Surprise. They are robust and you can turn their crate into a target, just to test this out! They crash into the goal and make an lots of monster noises, just like BLIZZ. Bashers are great for taking out and about too, as they fit perfectly into your pocket.

Overall, our Crate Creatures Surprise and Basher went down a treat with the girls. The best thing about them is that they’re not a one trick pony. They have a lot of fun features that keep the littles entertained for ages. Their favourite feature? That has to be the voice recorder in BLIZZ, they’ve had so much fun making their monster rattle!

Kids VS. Parents Games Night Challenge with Little Tikes

Kids VS. Parents Games Night Challenge with Little Tikes

*This post was written in collaboration with Little Tikes. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own. 

 

Now that our girls are well and truly growing up, we have a lot of family fun with board games. Hubs and I love to play all of the traditional board games with the girls, so when we were asked by Little Tikes  if we wanted to take part in a games night challenge, we couldn’t wait!

Little Tikes have a new range of super fun games out, ideal for kids aged 5 plus. They’re the kind of games that are that so much fun to play, the girls have no idea how much they’re learning whilst playing. So to kick of our Kids VS. Parents Games Night Challenge, Little Tikes sent us their Crazy Toaster and Hot Hoops games. As well, a music voucher and a Just Eat voucher to keep up the energy of the competitors!

Crazy Toaster – This is a pop up toaster game that will have you and your littles giggling all night! Slices of toast pop high out the toaster and you have to try to catch the flying pieces in your pans. If you catch them and they match the toast on your plate, they’re yours to keep. This game is fun, energetic and can be played for hours, but be warned – it’s not as easy as it looks!

Hot Hoops – This is a head to head challenge game and it’s perfect if you needs deciding points on your games nights! It’s fast paced and is bound to bring out the competitive streak in the whole family. The best thing about this games is that it’s compact and east to take on your travels.

 

Our family games night –

 

We had so much fun on our family games night, but unfortunately the parents did not come out on top! The kids of the house had scores well above ours and it was our eldest who was victorious and took the medal! We had such a great evening thanks to Little Tikes, their new games range is a lot of fun for both adults and children. Now all we need is a rematch to knock the kids off of their winning spot!
