Fairy Princess Play Tent

A fabulous and gorgeous fairy princess tent arrived on our doorstep yesterday.  This is any little girls' (well my girls anyway) dream tent.

The actual tent is made from a thick fabric which comes in soft colours and is beautifully decorated with flowers and butterflies, and the inner poles are wooden.

It can be used inside or outside, as it has a waterproof coating on it.  It seems bigger in real-life than it does in this picture too.

It is relatively quick to assemble, and is a hexagonal turret shaped tent with a flag on the top and three windows. The tent slots together and is joined with connectors for easy installation.

My kids adore this new tent, and I am pretty taken with it too!  It costs £74.99 and is available from www.playhouses.co.uk.

Ben and Holly's Little Kingdom Magic Mirror Wand

Entertainment One have kindly sent us this fun Magic Wand to review.

My girls are both fairy mad, and love watching Ben and Holly on TV, and I have to say it is one of my preferred kids programmes too!

This wand replicates Holly's wand from the programme, and when you wave the wand it makes magical sounds.   And if you need Princess Holly’s help to cast spells press the button and she will appear as a moving picture and she says five different phrases.

It is a fun idea and my girls are really taken with it, and find it pretty exciting!  Lots of giggles from both of them!

Ben and Holly's Little Kingdom Magic Wand retails at £15.99 and is available at all good retailers.

You can also check out the Ben and Holly website, and their official facebook page.

Wooden Drawers Advent Tree - Party Pieces

I am a little bit obsessed with Christmas products and so I was thrilled to receive this gorgeous Advent Tree from Party Pieces this morning.

I particularly love advent; the calendars, advent wreaths, carol services, and the whole anticipation of Christmas.

This wooden Advent Tree is made up of 24 drawers, which each have a unique and beautifully painted wooden Christmas tree decoration inside.  And the picture painted on the front of each drawer corresponds to what's inside.

I am all for creating our own Christmas traditions, and this will definitely become one of them.  Each morning I will get my girls to take it turns to pull open the drawers by their colourful ribbons and hang the decoration on the tree.  All children love opening up surprises and decorating trees!  I might even pop the odd chocolate treat into the drawers too.  This tree will also make a gorgeous and colourful centrepiece - I have ear-marked just the spot for it.

At just £19.99 I think this is a fabulous product, and a really great idea.  Visit the Party Pieces website for more information and to see many more Christmas products.
