Screechers Wild – The Race Car Machine Hybrids – Review

Screechers Wild! are the multi tasking race car vehicles that transform into creatures with explosive 360-degree flip morphing action.  They turn in an instant and my 7yr old was hooked once he tried them out and has been playing with them ever since.

With three different levels of vehicles in the range along with a Rapid Disc Blaster and a Speed Launcher there is much fun to have with these all action ready to go toys.

The car’s act as a normal toy car until they drive into or have a disc spun at them through the disc launcher.  This is when they magic happens and within the blink of an eye, each vehicle instantly transforms into a beast, the higher the level of vehicle the more complex the beast is.  Our orange and black level 2 vehicle turns into a dinosaur and is one of my boy’s favourites. The disc blaster is a funnel shaped device that you can stack full of discs.  Upon pushing the plunger a disc fires out and if it hits one of your vehicles at the front it instantly transforms it. There are various coloured discs and my boy was particularly pleased to have a silver and gold one in his set.

The speed launcher is another fabulous device that sends your car shooting across the room.  So if, as my 7yr old likes to do, you line a row of discs up and shoot your car towards them, it’s likely to hit one and transform as it hits it.  He finds it amazing watching them flip in and instant and morph into something else.

The Screechers toys have proved to be a massive hit with my boy and are definitely up there with his top toys.  The are played with everyday which is a good sign and he loves to tell anyone who visits all about them and give them a demonstration.

These toys are packed full of action and keep kids busy with them whizzing across the floor.

From what I have seen so far interest is maintained and these toys are something kids will go back to again and again for lots of fun and action play.  If you haven’t caught them already, then be sure to check out Screechers – the cars that flip in an instant from car to beast mode!

Parragon Life Canvas Stationery Collection – Review

Parragon have a fabulous new range out of Life Canvas stationery and I was lucky to received the Paris notebook and sticky notes in a tin.  Also included in the range are note cards, little tin set, journal, magnet set and file folders amongst other bits and pieces.  Their are also several designs in the Life Canvas range, including Paris, Wild and Butterflies.

IMG_20140826_162000The pocket notebook is a delightful design with pretty pale pink pages and an Eiffel Tower stamp logo in each corner.  The page are thick and easy to write on.  The cover is sturdy and will withstand being carried in your bag,  perfect for carrying round to keep notes in.  There is also a pink elastic to pull around the front to keep the notepad closed.

The sticky notes in the tin are so cute!  With eleven different shaped sticky pads each with a Parisian inspired background, you can find the perfect shape for every occasion.  The rectangular ones are perfect for marking a page in a book, the triangular ones are great for when you just need to write one word reminders and the squares are ideal for writing little notes to yourself.

I love the way they all fit into a tin, keeping them all together and ready to use.  I think these would make a lovely gift for someone.  I love mine and keep them next to my laptop ready to use as I go about my day.  A lovely stationery range from Parragon that any stationery fan will adore!
