Stocking Filler Toys from Gacha

One thing all children like at Christmas is hanging up their stockings waiting for them to be filled with lots of little treats and delights.  I know my two children are already excited about hanging their stocking by the fireplace and it’s the first thing they open on Christmas morning.  Tomy’s collectible Gacha range of pocket money toys make the ideal thing to pop in Christmas stockings.

The little sealed packets are fun to open and my children were all excited at the prospect of what was giong to be inside.  With brands in the range such as Hello Kitty, Disney, Monsters University, Furby, Transformers there is sure to be something everyone will like.

Our packets contained items from Monster’s university, Disney and Hello Kitty.

Miss M was pleased with her Hello Kitty bracelet and hairbands and wanted me to do her hair straight away.  She also put the Disney ring straight on her finger – it has a large design on top that she was keen to show everyone.

Mister B had a Monster’s University monster that came in 5 pieces to build yourself although was a little difficult to assemble.  There was also a Monster’s University key chain and a water squirter duck from Disney.  Mister B had fun playing with the three figures on the floor and was quite amused by them.

We tried the duck bath squirter that night and it actually works quite well, they had lots of fun squirting each other with it and Mister B named him “super duck” due to the cape on his back.

Overall, these stocking fillers are the sort of little items that children love and carry around with them.  For some low priced branded fun, then these are sure to bring a smile to a young child.

Gacha stocking fillers are available from Tesco

Crosse & Blackwell 4Kids Monsters University Jelly Pots – Review

Crosse & Blackwell 4Kids Monsters University Jelly Pots are a new kids snack pot available in two flavours and are the same colours as the favourite characters from the film, Monster’s University.

crosse and blackwell jelly pots monster's universityWe received two Monster’s University jellies featuring Sulley, which is a bright blue blackcurrant flavour and two Mike, which is a green apple flavour jelly.  My two children were eager to try one of each and immediately were drawn to the characters on the top.

The first thing they noticed when they removed the outer cardboard wrapper was a fold up spoon.  They were so excited and couldn’t wait to use the special spoon to eat it with.  I personally think this is an excellent idea as it makes them a simple snack to easily put in a pack lunch or picnic without having to worry about spoons.

The Crosse & Blackwell jellies are made with real fruit juice and contain no artificial colours or preservatives.  The jelly appeared softer and more wobbly than traditional jelly although this made it easier to break up and simpler for little ones to eat.  I asked for their thoughts and got the reply “yummy in my tummy” from Miss M who rubbed her hand round in circles on her tummy as she spoke.  Mister B then copied his big sister insisting his was yummy in his tummy too.

crosse and blackwell jelly potsAfter tasting both flavours they both agreed that the apple flavour jelly pot one was nicer and if I was to buy any that is the one they would prefer.  I would definitely consider buying these for pack lunches as I like to vary what they have and these are ideal especially with the included spoon.  Great for picnics and days out too!

Also available are Toy Story fruit pots, something I will look out for so my children can try them – another great way to boost their healthy 5 fruit and veg a day!
