PAW PATROL: PUPS AND THE PIRATE TREASURE – Review

Faryl (5) is a huge fan of Paw Patrol and when he gets his turn with the zapper, he heads straight to Nick Jr to find an episode of Paw Patrol, to see what Ryder, Chase, Skye and the rest of the patrol have been upto.

But I think we must have seen them all by now, so when Faryl heard that there was an all new DVD, he was excited to give it a try.

We snuggled down after school one afternoon to watch the 6 new episodes, Faryl was hooked and mesmerised by the patrol’s mystery adventure to search for Pirate Treasure. In the last week we have watched it a couple of times and he’s sisters Jolie (6) and Aliza (2) are loving it too.

The DVD lasted about an hour and half in total, but you can just watch one episode at a time. It also includes a Video Storybook. With a U certificate you can be reassured that the it is suitable for the whole family.

Paw Patrol: Pups And The Pirate Treasure is available to buy from Monday 14th March, just in time to treat your Little Pickles over the Easter Break, well there’s nothing better than an duvet day, with some cracking DVDs and popcorn to chill out over the holidays.

Dreaming of a Perfect Holiday #MarkWarnerMum

I spotted that Mark Warner are looking for 2016 Ambassadors, so thought it was worth a try, here’s our entry, well who doesn’t love a holiday.

Now our family is growing and there is no little baby in the house, things are getting a little bit easier. And being a bit of a holiday addict, my brain often wanders away dreaming of the adventures the Little Pickles and I can go on.

Even though I adore a sunshine break, we often discuss taking a family Skiing trip to the French Alps. I have skied twice many years ago when I was at school and have always dreamt of going again and now I can share that with my children perfect.

When the younger Pickles chat about it the first thing that comes to mind is their desperation to build a real snowman, well we don’t often get a much in the way of snow in the UK.

When I asked Jolie aged 6 and ¾ she said ‘I would be very excited about going skiing, going down the hills fast and getting there on an aeroplane. Oh it would be so much fun’

My new challenge for 2016 is to be a braver parent, I have even signed myself up for a sky jump in June, so flying down  slipping and sliding down the keep slopes would suit the new adrenaline junkie me very well I think!

The pickles always love a new challenge and getting to know new friends so ski school would be an absolute must for them. And I’m sure they would look mighty cute in salopettes too.

Plus indulging in some fine french wine and trying local foods. Our lives are so busy so a good holiday is just the best way to unwind and being a single Mum a little bit of time to myself whilst the pickles are in kids club would be pretty nice too.
Right now to bring myself back from my daydreaming and cook some pretty average pasta for tea.

This is my entry into the Mark Warner #MarkWarnerMum 2016 Family Ambassador Program

Extremely Good Fun Comes To Swindon

Fun-loving locals are in for a real treat with the opening of a brand new Extreme Trampoline Park in Swindon this week (1st February 2016)

The new 1,100 square metre park is the second of its kind in the UK and follows the launch of the Better Extreme Sports Facility in Barking, London last summer. It is operated by GLL, the charitable social enterprise that runs the facility under its brand name, Better Extreme.

Offering state-of-the-art equipment including a main court with foam pits, extreme dodgeball area, basketball, fidget ladder, slack line and performance walls, the trampoline park will provide a fun haven for children and adults alike.

Youngsters of any age are welcome and trampolining is a great way for kids to let off steam in a safe and supervised environment. Older teens who enjoy extreme sports can build up their confidence with support on hand if required, while adults can pit their skills against each other in activities designed to test their abilities to the max.

SwindonTrampoline

The facility can also accommodate birthday parties, company team building days and adult only parties

The trampoline park is situated within Swindon’s Link Centre complex and the site which includes an ice rink, swimming pool, gym, cycle studio and 3G pitches now offers the most comprehensive range of sports and leisure facilities in the town.

Commenting on the launch, Jamie Ross, Better Extreme National Sports Manager said: “We’re thrilled to be opening this park, which uses the latest state-of-the-art trampolining equipment which we sourced and imported from the USA. We’re hoping that it’ll become a real destination for the region, attracting visitors from across the South West.

“Trampolining really has something to offer everyone, from children, to extreme sports fanatics, to businesses who’re looking for a unique company away day or team building environment.”

The new Trampoline Park will be open from 1st February 2016.

Initial weekday opening times will be from 4pm – 9pm and weekend opening times from 11am – 6pm on Saturdays and 10am-4pm on Sundays. From 15th February opening times will extend to daily sessions of 10am to 9pm.

Prices start from as little as £6.95 and include concessionary rates. A reduced adults entrance fee of £7.95 will run during February 2016 (normal price £9.95).
