Win a Family Ticket to See Charlie & Lola Best Betest Play

cl

Don’t miss everyone’s favourite brother and sister, Charlie and Lola, in their extremely ever so wonderful stage show! The stars of the hit BBC TV series and books by Lauren Child are brought to life by a magical mix of puppets, live action and music.

Will Charlie ever get Lola to sleep, even though she is not sleepy and will not go to bed? It won’t be easy – the Tigers want their bedtime milk, the Dancing Dogs have borrowed Lola’s pyjamas and Lola thinks there is an ogre hiding in the wardrobe!

“…a gentle little show…an ideal early theatre experience.”
The Guardian

“A genuine delight”

Sunday Express

“This show is magic from start to finish”

The Herald Scotland

“If you’ve got kids go and see Charlie and Lola’s Best Bestest Play. If you haven’t, borrow some and go anyway. The hit show is touring the country and it’s a genuine delight – indeed it’s far more enjoyable for parents than most of the theatre that’s aimed at grown-ups these days.”
Sunday Express

“…it takes wit and ingenuity to take a winning formula from the nursery bookshelf and small screen and make it equally charming on stage but this show pulls it off in fine style.”
Manchester Evening News

WIN TICKETS TO CHARLIE AND LOLA’S BEST BESTEST PLAY

 

You could win family ticket of 4 to come and see Charlie and Lola’s Best Bestest Play at Glow, Bluewater’s events venue.

Christmas Gift Idea: Leapfrog Scribble and Write

This innovative product provides stroke-by-stoke guidance encouraging children to trace over the shown lights to create a letter or number. It has an easy-to-grip stylus pen to fit perfectly in little hands and provides instant accuracy feedback on shapes and proper stroke order along the way.

This device also helps children explore letter sounds, counting and much more. It uses a retraceable surface and is easily portable to allow little ones to play and practice wherever they go.

What We Thought Of It

This is great for children to practice their sounds and letter formation. It’s perfect for pre-school children who want to learn before they start school.  I wish we had this in the summer for BG to practice. Now she has started school and has learnt her sounds she found this a little slow for her, she didn’t want to follow the lights she wanted to write the letters herself and got a bit frustrated.

A great present for your pre-schooler

*We were sent a Scribble and Write to test out.

Christmas Giveaway: A Copy of The Smurfs 2 on DVD and Limited Edition Lithograph Print Sketch

We have a great Christmas giveaway to brighten up this grey Thursday.

The Smurfs 2 is out on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray and DVD 2nd December

label_international_tm_n

Just in time for Christmas, Sony Pictures Animation’s THE SMURFS 2 arrives on Blu-ray™ 3D, Blu-ray™, DVD and UltraViolet™ from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. This heartwarming new adventure reunites the world’s favourite three apple-high creatures, bringing laughs for every member of the family.

Only included on the Blu-ray 3D and Blu-ray are three all-new, kid-friendly featurettes, including “The Puurrfect Companion: Azreal’s Tail,” showing how Gargamel’s sidekick was created, from the live-action cat to the digital double, and how actor Frank Welker brought the character to life.  Both the Blu-ray versions and DVD come with deleted scenes and two additional featurettes.  “Animating Azrael” gives an in-depth look at how filmmakers animated Gargamel’s sidekick, and the all-new “Daddy’s Little Girl: The Journey of Smurfette” traces the origins of the one-and-only Smurfette back to Smurf creator, Peyo, and features Katy Perry on how she tapped into her inner Smurf to voice the classic character.
