Magic Twirl Mim-Mim Plush

Summer loves the Katie and Mim-Mim show on CBebbies; so when we were offered to review the new Magic Twirl Mim-Mim plush toy I was excited to show it to Summer.

Summer loved it immediately and couldn't wait for me to get it out of the box so she could start playing with it.

It's the perfect size, it's huggable (Summer's words) and the ears are posable so you can do many things with them, like turn them into a twirl.

Mim-Mim is so realistic to the show, Mim-Mim says 8 phases from the show, including Mim-Mim chant, "Kate & Mim-Mim me and you, lets twirl away to Mimiloo!", which is activated when he is twirled around, just as in the show. You can squeeze his tummy to get other phrases; the ones Summer loves the best are "Hugs always make me happy" and "I love being purple"

The Other Alice Book Review and Giveaway by Kacy Lawless aged 10

The Other Alice was a great book, it was unbelievable, I couldn't put it down. It was so surprising and I have never read anything it. I wish there were more books like it. I'm actually already looking for more of Michelle Harrison's books. I definitely think it is for older readers though because parts of it were scary. But I really did love it though, I can't wait to read some more of Michelle's books.

The Other Alive was fantastic. I really loved the twists, one was amazing but when you look back you will wonder how you didn't realise. Every single second I was reading it something happened that put me on my feet. My friend was sat next to me and she kept looking at me and laughing, because of the surprising twists my facial expressions looked hilarious. The book was great though, I have never read anything like it.

I cannot wait to read more of Michelle's books, but I will say to be careful if you get scared easily or you have a vivid imagination. I recommend them to everyone who likes mysteries, adventure and twists.  

This book is for 9+

DC SuperHero Girls Review

Superhero's are a massive hit with boys, don't get me wrong I certainly like watching the movies.  They have brought a new range of superhero's for girls, Superhero girls who go to Super Hero High and its the place for young Super heroes to find that acceptance while they're also being taught to hone their unique super powers.

There are seven girls:-

Wonder Women
Harley Quinn
Poison Ivy

DC SuperHero Girls
DC SuperHero Girls

We were sent two Super Hero girls and the girls were ecstatic about getting them, I let them pick which one they wanted hoping it wouldn't cause an argument, luckily it didn't and they went for the ones I thought they would.

The two we were sent were.....

BatGirl and Poison Ivy

We also got sent an A5 notebook and a book with all the information on all the Super Hero girls.

I'm going to keep you guessing on who picked who, let me tell you about the figurines characters

BatGirl is crazy smart, she is a technowizard, cool, reserved, and complicated, she is classed as the 'normal' one which in a super hero school can make you seem a bit weird.  She soon becomes friends with Supergirl.

Poison Ivy is basically your typical wallflower she is super shy and she is a massive book worm, don't get me wrong she has friends, her main friend is Harley Quinn, She tries very hard not to be the center of attention

Have you guessed yet? 

In case you haven't guessed Kira picked BatGirl and Summer picked Poison Ivy, we soon had arguments on who was the baddie, they weren't having the fact that neither of them were baddies and they were friends.  Both the girls have loved playing with these figurines and they can't wait to get some more of them.  Summer didn't want her photo taken with Ivy while Kira was quite happy to oblige as you can see from the photo.
