Lego Friends could be good if it stepped away from old fashioned depictions of girl friendship. Whilst my 5 year old loves seeing her Lego toys come alive, I can't stand the usual 'mean girl' bullying and insipid characterisation. Come on Lego, do what you do best, be creative and give us something more interesting!


Oxford Reading Tree Songbirds Phonics: Level 3: Mixed Pack of 6 (Ort)
Oxford Reading Tree Songbirds Phonics: Level 3: Mixed Pack of 6 (Ort)
by Julia Donaldson
Edition: Paperback
Price: £25.50

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite as good as we hoped., 15 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought for a 5 year old to practise reading over the hols. Although we enjoy Julia Donaldson books usually, we found these a bit disappointing. In fact much to our surprise we preferred the equivalent level of the Oxford reading Tree range (Biff, Kipper etc). The Songbird books need the imagery more to explain the story and the written word can feel clunky sometimes. But it makes a change from Biff etc....

This review is from: Crayola Model Magic Bucket (Toy)
What can I say, we love this stuff. Pretty easy to use. Looks good when coloured with felt pens though most types fade. We've found that sharpies (if you want to risk permanent marker in your child's hands) work best for keeping colour. Good for making 'food items' for dolls. Our playmo have a lovely vegetable and fruit market now. ' Great for making things to bring homework to life i.e. she made a baby dinosaur breaking out of its shell and we've made sea animals as part of her KS1 work. The end product doesn't last long (and it smells a bit strange) but it's great fun for getting them into modelling quickly. Once dried it feels like polystyrene and is as fragile but its lightness means you can have fun making a mobile. Already on our 2nd box.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good range of topics, 15 Mar. 2016

Bought to consolidate a child who doesn't bring home a big range of reading books. There are lots of different topics and phonics covered. The 5 year old enjoyed the stories and there was lots to talk about in terms of comprehension and understanding the world we live in. Has worked for us.

Bought to help 5 year old practise her reading with a greater variety of books. She enjoyed these a lot especially Queen's Maid and A Bark in the Night. The pictures while not a style I like do have extra details that can make the reading more fun and interesting. We've found these helpful in consolidating what our child already knows.

Great fun in the bath or paddling pool. They really do race around the water and bending the tail at different angles has her doing all kinds of water gymnastics. Just make sure you shut all the hinges for the batter properly. Even more fun if you have two.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fairy fabulousness., 15 Mar. 2016

This is a very pretty set. Lots of accessories encouraging a lot of story telling for my 5 year old. This is a set bought to add to her fairyland collection and there are new items for within this set. We do find it hard keeping the tree and tree trunk on the base. Usually Playmo pieces fit together better. Bit of blue tack solves it. If you are looking to make a fairyland this is a good starter set typically sold at a reasonable price.

It's a nice set though not a lot in it considering it comes in a box. We find the harness a bit fiddly to get on and it has gradually got loose so doesn't stay on so well. Other than that a pretty set to add to any Fairyland collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Fairy and Unicorn, 15 Mar. 2016

Lovely set to add to any Playmo fairyland. The accessories are particularly nice and unusual. My daughter is delighted with the fairy and the unicorn. The only prob we have is standing the fairy up esp when she's holding something. You do get a flower stand for her to use (which I do) but may daughter has to be reminded. This is probably one of our favourite sets.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely but a bit thin, 15 Mar. 2016

My daughter has become a fan of the TV series (which is rather sweet). It's a lovely colouring in book - a mix of characters and 'mindful' patterns. There aren't many pages but the paper is the nice quality for not drying out felt pens. I'd give the book 5 if it had a better colouring in option for Panthea and if all the element unicorns were in it. Well, it's not me who would say this, it's what my 5.5 year old says.
