If you’re a long time follower of the blog then you may know that some of my household are big Harry Potter fans. If you’re a new reader then hi – I hope your love of all things Potter brought you here! As a family we have quite a collection of Harry Potter merchandise; from Lego to clothes to books to car stickers (don’t judge me!) and much more. The newest addition is a Magical Capsules surprise toy.
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.

Or end up doing it for them… And then I met Little Brian paint sticks. My. Life. Has. Changed.
Gift giving is a meaningful gesture practiced by people for decades. Gifts are used to show appreciation and express emotions, which can be very difficult to put into words.
