Scalextric Touring Car Battle #review

I hate ‘bog standard reviews’, you know the kind: I love [insert product name] I think everything about it is [great/fantastic/an income stream*], my kids loved it (even though they didn’t bother take it out of the box/refused to be photographed… Continue Reading →

Toddlebike2 Review

Appy Kids Co drinks #Review

It’s the eternal struggle: getting kids to eat and drink things that are healthy for them. “I’m hungry” “OK, have some fruit, dinner is nearly ready” “I’m not hungry for fruit!! I’M HUNGRY FOR CHOCOLATE!!” This a conversation a young… Continue Reading →

brush-baby – dental products review

When I get approached by a company to review a product my first questions are usually: 1. Is it something we need? 2. Does it fit with my brand? (yes, I think Daddy Poppins is a brand, don’t worry this… Continue Reading →

Giggle Wiggle by John Adams Toys Review

 Kids these days seem to have their heads stuck in their tablets and screens (and while I think technology, for the most part, is great for society) it seems to me to be generally a solitary pursuit (there’s no face… Continue Reading →

Carlow Delta Sensory Gardens Review

As expected it took about an hour to get there from Waterford. I must admit my first impression was “This is the best Carlow has to offer?” Now, granted I had only pulled up in the carpark and was very HANGRY!! it was 2pm and I hadn’t eaten yet. Essentially it appeared to be a tourist gimmick in a garden centre in a run down industrial estate!!As expected it took about an hour to get there from Waterford.

But boy was I wrong!!

Easter at Rathwood

We were asked to go on the Rathwood Easter Train and let you fine people know what we thought (* We were provided with free tickets for review purposes). It is egg-sactly the kind of thing we had planned for the midterm and so didn’t take me long to say yes, especially as it combines 3 of my favourite things; family fun days, chocolate and really really bad Easter puns. I was egg-static to be going, especially as I didn’t have to shell out for the tickets.   

So, we hatched a plan to go on the first Monday of the midterm and we got up that morning all egg-cited. I’m not yolking! We hopped in the car off we went, haring down the motorway. It’s only just over an hour from our home in Kilmeaden, County Waterford to Rathwood, on the Wicklow/Carlow border. We were meeting cousins there, they travelled from just outside Wexford town and it took them egg-sactly an hour to arrive.
