The Happy's ~review~

The Happy's are cute, motorised plush toys which interact and play with their owner.

There are three puppies in the range and one kitten. We were sent Bentley the retriever but my children decided to name him 'Toffee Biscuit' for some reason!

The Happy's use infrared technology to respond to their themed treat and perform a trick which could be beg, wiggle, pounce or chase tail. They have a range of movements and sounds.

The pet goes racing off around the room as soon as it's switched on and my children were soon chasing after it, getting it to perform and it had them giggling lots. I cruelly reminded them that it's the closest they'll get to owning a dog!

Also available is the Happy's Rockin' Playground. IR technology sends them heading for the playground where they can spin, dance and pounce on their wobbly toys and I think having more than one Happy pet would add to the fun (and chaos!!)

Although it's aimed at 4+ yrs Molly, Charlie and Harry have had great fun playing with Bentley/Toffee Biscuit and I can see this becoming one of those Christmas must-have toys.

Each Happy's Pet and the Rockin' Playground retails at RRP £19.99 which we think is great value.

Peppa Pig's Big Splash Live

Harry is a huge Peppa & George fan so I knew he'd be keen to attend the live show when I found out that it was heading to Norwich. My only concern was that he wouldn't sit still long enough as he's such a fidget-bum!

I needn't have worried. Peppa Pig's Big Splash encouraged children to not sit still. There was singing, dancing, shouting and jumping. From the minute the curtain arose (on time, I was pleased to note with a theatre full of impatient pre-schoolers!) Daisy and the puppeteers had the children enthralled and joining in. It was a high-energy show and the cast looked as though they were enjoying it as much as the audience.

Harry and his friend loved every minute of it but when I asked them what their favourite part was both said that it was the Muddy Puddle Jumping competition where everyone got wet…..and I mean everyone, not just those on stage!

Peppa Pig's Big Splash is continuing to tour the country throughout this year. If you've got a pre-school Peppa fan I can't recommend it enough. Take a look at the website here for dates & venues and to book tickets.

Ugglys Electronic Pup-pets from Character

Barf The St Bernard is one of the Uggly Pup-pets from Character.

It's ugly, it's gross, it's repugnant, it's covered in sick and snot, it makes disgusting (and rather realistic) noises…...and my children love it!

One of the boys snuck it into a family party recently and had everyone in stitches with its vile sounds. Yep, that's the level of humour my family have!

Open its mouth to make it burp, scrunch up the head to make it fart and squeeze it to make some even uglier faces. There are over 30 sounds and the dial on the collar changes the pitch and prolongs the sound.

All three of my children have had great fun playing with this toy and it has kept them amused for hours. 

If you want to keep your sanity this may not be the toy for your children but if you love toilet humour 
as much as they do, it's perfect!
