Carnival Funfair Games is a really good game for all to play. It has over 25 games to play and four people can play. You can also choose your own character and you can decide what colour hair and clothes etc you can wear.
I found some of the best games were balloon games, where you have to aim the dart and shoot the balloons, bowler coaster, where you have to roll the ball at the right speed to get to a certain point and buckets of fun, where you have to get the ball into the bucket. There are however some games which I have found really hard, for example, lucky pass, where you have to get the ring over the wire and pigskin pass, where you have to toss the football through a swinging target. However, it is quite fun to keep trying to do it. My husband has been able to do some of these.
The only disadvantage is that you cannot choose which games you play in a competition. The computer does this for you.
I have bought many bottles of the Imperial Leather Japanese Spa Shower Cream, at first I bought it because it was on special offer in Tesco. The bottles are a limited edition, however, I have been buying them for about six months now. It is a bargain for the amount it costs, it normally costs just over a pound for a bottle from Tesco.
The shower gel has green tea, rice milk and jasmine and leaves your skin soft and moisturised. The showergel has a skin friendly pH, so it is also good for sensitive skin. We use the showergel for the family, we accidently put it in the bath when the baby was in there one day and it did not harm the baby at all.
We bought the showergel as we have travertine tiles in the bathroom and my husband likes everything to match, so it fits in well with the bathroom attire.
The showergel smells great and the smaller bottle is ideal for going abroad, as we used one bottle for a two week holiday away for the family.
Its a cream colour and a beautiful smell and you can be assured that thethe scent remains on your skin long after the shower. You can use either a sponge or a body exfoliator and it lathers up well using either. You also only need a small amount for it to lather up.
I bought Mario Kart for the Wii for my husband for Christmas and it has caused no end of competitiveness in our household. I bought the game and the steering wheel for £29.99. You can play using either the steering wheel or the normal Wii remote. You can choose to be a number of different characters including the regulars, Mario and Luigi. Characters are divided into three different weight groups; light, medium and heavy and different characters are better at different games. You also add additional characters the more you play.
You can also pick up additional items as you go through the games and these items do different things e.g. the bullet accelarates you through the race, the banana makes other characters spin. There are also different courses that you can undertake, some being a lot easier than others. Some of the hard courses have no sides to the road and therefore you tend to fall off a lot.
This is one game that you can play for hours without getting bored and is a must have for the Wii. It is game that suits adults and children.
The Parazone Flushable Toilet Wipes cost about £1.50 for a pack of 40 wipes, but if you are conscious about the state of your toilet you will definately like them. The wipes are flushable and therefore I find more hygienic as they do not have to be put in the bathroom bin, but be careful only to put a couple of wipes down the toilet at a time for flushing, as otherwise it could block your toilet. Whenever we have guests stay at our house, I always do the toilets the next day as I am paranoid about the germs they leave.
You just need to give the rim of the toilet and the toilet seat a quick wipe and you can see the dirt come off on the wipe. The wipes kill all the big germs such as e-coli, salmonella and listeria. You can often get special offers on buying three for the price of two at the major supermarkets.
The wipes come in a handy pack, which you can reseal. I find these better than wipes that come in a tub, as the first few of the pack do not dry out each time.
My son is now six months old and I have been using Johnsons Baby Shampoo on him since he was a newborn. I honestly do not think you will find a better value shampoo for your baby. I paid about £1.20 for a 200 ml bottle and I have only just finished the first bottle, so it has lasted six months!
The 'No More Tears' formula ensures that if the shampoo accidently gets in your baby's eyes, it will not sting. It is very mild to the baby and my baby has never flinched when the shampoo has run on his face.
The shampoo leaves my baby's hair soft and clean and it also has a really nice scent. When we have ran out of shampoo recently, myself and my husband have used the baby shampoo and it also leaves adults hair clean, soft and flyaway and you only need to rinse the hair once.
You can also buy the travel size version of this product, which is useful for going abroad. I bought the travel size version for a pound in Wilkinson. I did not use it all on a two week holiday, so I left it there as I had so much luggage to bring home. Its so cheap though so you do not mind.
I have used GHD straighteners for a number of years now and felt that I needed to write to let anyone know out there (who does not already know), how good they are.. I have used other hair straighteners in the past, however, they do not compare to these ones.
I always use these straighteners after washing and drying my hair. They heat up really fast (six seconds I believe). You know when they have heated up as the red light flashes when it is ready to be used. I always use a heat protector with these as they do get very hot, but this is why they work so well.
You will need to straighten your hair in sections and use a brush or comb at the same time to get the hair dead straight. These straighteners will leave even the curliest of hair, straight. These straighteners also do not get your hair tangled up in them, like others do and therefore I find that they do not damage my hair so much. They also come with a heat sensitive mat so the do not burn any furniture,
I bought Dove roll on sensitive deodorant by accident one day. I thought that I had bought my usual Sure roll on deodorant, but in a rush I realised that I had picked up the wrong one. However, I was pleasantly surprised with the Dove deodorant.
My underarms can sometimes get quite sensitive and can sting when I put deodorant on and this is why I have stuck to sensitive deodorants for the past few years as they usually do the job and dove is no exception. It certainly does not leave any stinging on your underarms. It also never leaves any white marks on my clothes, which makes it a must have deodorant for me as I quite often wear dark colours. I have found that this tube of deodorant usually lasts me about two months using it every day, so it is pretty much the same as other deodorants in this way.
The deodorant also dries without leaving any white flakiness under your arms. It normally dries in a few minutes, so you do not have to wait for ages before putting your clothes on. I would recommend this deodorant, as it has everything you could need in a deodorant.
I bought bio oil when I first found out I was pregnant. A friend had recommended it to me after using this on his scars from acne. I used bio oil every day from about ten weeks of pregnancy until about two months after my sons birth. The bottles are quite expensive and the smallest bottle costs about £10 - £15 in most supermarkets.
I put this on every day after a bath or shower, however, you need to leave quite a bit of time after putting it on, before putting your clothes on as the oil is really greasy and takes quite a long time to dry.
I am quite sure that this treatment worked a little bit, however, I am still left with stretchmarks, I think this was inevitable as I was huge when pregnant and my son weighed in at over ten pound at birth. I do not think that any oil can really prevent stretchmarks, however, it is definately worth trying. I am confident that I would have been left with worse stretchmarks otherwise. I will use this oil again when I decide to have more children.
I bought the Dettol Mould and Mildew Remover, after it was recommended by a friend. She had told me how this bottle really works and that she was really pleased with the results. Mould had gathered under our bath mats and had left black marks on our travertine tiles. I had tried other, cheaper solutions but nothing seemed to be budging the marks.
I bought the bottle for about £2.00 from the supermarket and you can turn the nozzle to an on or off position, so it is also handy to have when you have children around the house.
I sprayed the solution on the black marks, left them for half an hour and then washed off and dried the area. I was amazed at the results, there was not one spot of black left on the area. It is definately worth paying the extra for this bottle. Dettol is a brand you can trust and one bottle has lasted us about six months.
This product can be used on White grouting, ceramic tiles, stainless steel, chrome, plastics, walls and acrylic bath tub and shower.
The only disadvantage with this product is that it has a really strong bleach smell, so you will have to open the windows for a little while afterwards, however, as this is a product that really works, I think the smell is worth it. You will not have to use the product often so it is bearable.
Dettol spray is a must have around the house. I use the spray every day when I have finished cooking in the kitchen and it is brilliant. The spray kills 99.9% of bacteria and this is vital as I have a young son. Not only do I clean the kitchen with the spray, I also use it to spray the tiles in the bathroom, my sons changing mat, the outside of my kitchen cupboard, my sons highchair and his toys. It is a general purpose cleaner.
The spray is colourless and odourless so leaves no stains on our travertine tiles. You can turn the nozzle to an off position, so therefore it is safe around little hands! The spray normally costs between £2.50 - £3.00 from Tesco, ASDA, Wilkinsons and other leading stores. Look out for special offers on the spray, as it occasionally comes with 50% extra for free. I keep a spray in the kitchen, in my sons room and in our bathrooms. There is normally special offers on buying two for £4.00 etc, so look out for those offers too.
I bought these pads for when my dog was a puppy. We moved into our house and did not have any gates for the first few months, so we needed some where for our dog to do her business, which was not on our carpet. We bought these pads from Pets at Home, unfortunately they are not cheap, but they are worth it if they save your carpets.
The first few times my puppy went to the toilet on our carpet, we showed her the mats and she soon learnt that she should go to the toilet on these mats. The only disadvantage about these mats are that you can still smell the urine on the mats. The mats do disguise some of the odour, however, not all of it and you can be left with the smell of dog urine in the house. As long as the mat is put in the dogs room it is not too bad. We still use these mats when we go out for the day and the dog needs somewhere to go, so they are very useful.
I bought the Tommee Tippee Icy Bite Keys for my son this week and I have found that this is one teether that he really likes. I bought the item for £2.50 from Tesco, which is quite cheap as I have seen them for quite a bit more expensive in other shops and websites. The teether acts as a toy and a teether in one and he likes to look at the different colours and deciding which one to chomp on.
The teether is easy for my baby to hold, as it has a rubber grip and is big enough for him to grip. Each one of the three teethers also has a grip on it, so are easy to hold. As with all teethers that I have bought so far, I have again found that they only stay chilled for about five minutes at the most and they have to go back in the fridge again. The teether is also easy to take out and about and my son holds in while he is in his pram.
I have bought two of the Lollipop Lane Rocking Moses Basket Stands. The reason for this is that when my baby was a newborn, it was easier to have one stand upstairs and one stand downstairs and therefore I did not have to carry the stand up and down the stairs every day. I am glad that I bought the rocking stand for the moses basket as this proved to be really handy getting my son to sleep at night when he was a few weeks old. I was able to hold the handle from my bed and rock it back and fore without even having to get up.
The stand has a handy space at the bottom to put extra blankets or toys and therefore if your baby gets warm in the night you can just take a blanket off and place it underneath.
The stand has the Lollipop Lane motif on the bottom of it at the front, however, the second stand that I bought the motif was put on upside down. It was not a real problem, just looked a bit strange, so I hid this stand upstairs so no-one could see it.
My baby was a bit of a fussy eater at first and did not like the Cow and Gate range. However, the Cow and Gate Baby Balance Summer Fruit Salad was one of the foods from the range that he did like. They say that babies prefer the sweet foods rather than vegetables and this was definately true with my baby. The fruit salad is made from grape and mandarin juice with apple and bananas. My baby had ate bananas and apple purees previously so this probably helped with him liking the fruit salad.
The fruit salad can be given to babies at four months plus, which was the age I gave this to my baby. It can fed to baby straight from the cupboard, so no need to rush around warming food when your baby is hungry. One jar lasted two days, as the food must be kept in the fridge once opened.
The fruit salad was definately one of the best out of the cow and gate range and this is one of the only jars from the range that I would buy again.
I bought Milton Sterilising Tablets for when my family and I went abroad recently. Sterilising abroad was made easy with these tablets. In one box you get 28 tablets, all for approximately £2.00. You need one tablet for every 5 litres of water. I only had quite a small box for sterilising, which my Tommee Tippee Breast Pump had come in. Therefore, I only put in half a tablet with the water. However, it meant that I had to put about three loads in. It takes 15 minutes to sterilise all the equipment and it states that the sterilising solution is good for 24 hours. This was handy because it meant that if my baby had dropped all his dummies in the day, then I could just pop it in the solution before we went out again in the night. One box of sterilising tablets will last you for a two week holiday abroad.
I have also started using this in the house now, in addition to my Tommee Tippee Steam Steriliser. I use the solution to put his dummies and bowls and spoons in to ensure that they are completely sterilised. They say that you do not have to sterilise the bowls, but I get paranoid about everything being clean to I just pop them in there. They are instantly clean after 15 minutes.
