Meccano Ferrari Formula 1 vehicle

Meccano – such a classic toy, isn’t it? It’s been around for so many years and is constantly evolving. I’ve never had any myself; it’s not really something I’ve ever been into, if I’m honest. But the boys, especially Jacob, are beginning to notice it more. As for The Husband, he’s had his fair share of it in his lifetime! With the boys being fans of cars and The Husband having a soft spot for Formula 1, this gave him the opportunity to revisit his Meccano building days and introduce the boys to it!

Construct one of the most iconic Italian racing cars to ever tear up the track! This model car kit gives young builders real tools to piece together metal nuts and bolts, creating an authentic Ferrari Grand Prix Racer!

I’m almost done with mine, but I do have a few little bits still to get this week. I am not usually as unorganised as this – I’m normally all done with wrapping by now! Luckily the boys still have another four days at school, so hopefully I’ll manage to get some done then.  Read more

Prestige Hampers Christmas Fireside basket | Review

Prestige Hampers Christmas fireside basket.

A hamper is one of my favourite gifts to give at Christmastime. Whether to say thank you, Merry Christmas, or just to treat a special someone to lots of delicious treats in one box. Prior to having the boys I made the effort to make my own treats for my own foodie hampers and they went down a storm. Since then, I barely get time to bake goodies for myself, never mind anyone else! So a pre-made hamper with ready to go items is a good place to start. Prestige Hampers can do just the job for you.
