The Zelfs Series 5 Crystal Zelfs So-Anne – Review

The Zelfs Series 5, proved popular with Miss M when we reviewed them a while ago, and now there are some new editions, The Crystal Zelfs from Character Toys.

We received So-anne, a Teddy Bear Zelf with the magical power as a Dream Giver.

ZelfEach crystal Zelf comes with a crystal on their body from which their magical powers come from.  They also come with a glittery accessory to play with alongside the Zelf, in this case, a sparkly rocking chair.  So-anne is a pink and yellow Zelf with hair to match.  I find the Zelf’s well made and sturdy, perfect for everyday play and carrying around.  They are built to last and children just love stroking their hair!

The rocking chair is a cute accessory that the Zelf can easily sit in with bent legs.  I think it looks lovely sat on Miss M’s bedside where she keeps her Zelf collection.  The hair can be played with and the figure can be posed.

The Zelfs are perfectly priced for party presents, or for children to save up a bit of pocket money to buy, and with lots of others in the collection, there is a great choice to choose from.  With Moonicorn, Angelala, Sugar Bunny and Moona as other Zelf’s in the collection, why not take a look at them and pick out your favourite!

All reviews are my own and my family’s opinions and we received the Zelf in order to write the review.

Philippe Starck Louis Ghost Chair – Review

For many years now I have lusted over the Philippe Starck Louis Ghost Chair, living in hope that perhaps one day I might own one.  So when Lakeland Furniture came along and offered my to try out their reproduction version, I jumped at the chance.

Lakeland Furniture specialise in high end reproductions of famous designs and all the modern classics, as well as a huge range of the UK’s best value bar stools and dining chairs.


I chose the Philippe Starck Louis Ghost Chair in Smoky, a classic, neutral shade that looks elegant in design, stylish and a piece that turns heads when someone walks in the room.  In fact the first question they ask is “Is the chair comfortable?”.  To which I can honestly say that it is.

Philippe StarckI think the Philippe Starck chair would look great placed in a hallway or bedroom, a great statement chair.  The fact that it is reproduction – well without seeing and comparing it to the original it’s hard to tell the what the differences would be.  There are a few joins that I think would be better in the original but this is of perfectly acceptable quality to me and I’m very happy with it and would rather not have the designer price tag!

The Philippe Starck chair is surprisingly sturdy and seems to be built to last  – well I hope it lasts me a long time – I love this chair and think it’s a stylish piece not to be missed!

Lakeland Furniture offer a range of designer copies such as Charles Eames, Xavier Pauchard and many more.  They have a vast choice of bar stools, dining chairs and office chairs as well, so there is something to suit everyone.  Why not check them out?
