Spirit Riding Free – Spirit and Lucky Deluxe Feeding Set Toy Review

My children have been a fan of horses and horse riding for quite sometime. Well ever since my lovely friend kindly let us spend the day at her yard and now my lot got up there quite regularly helping with various things in exchange for horse riding lessons. To be honest I love it as it gets them outside and away from technological items. And really it came as no surprise to me when my youngest two became obsessed with the Dreamworks animation series Spirit Riding Free, thank you Netflix!

Now of course with any good TV show comes some very entertaining merchandise and this is definitely the case with Spirit. So when I was asked if I would like to review the Spirit Riding Free – Spirit and Lucky Deluxe Feeding Set Toy I just knew that it had to be a yes. Funnily enough some of the other toys in the range were already on my eight year old's Christmas wish list, I don't think she was aware of this particular one though.

Comedies and Festive Spirit #weeklyroundup

This will only be a short post this week, not because I don't have a lot to say ( I always have a lot to say) but because I completely ran out of time to actually write the weekly round up. It's funny how I manage to get so busy this time of year, lots of outings, things on the calendar and even when I think I'm being really organised, I drop the ball with something.

But I do think it's time to now mention the word Christmas.

Who's prepared? Who hasn't even begun to think about buying presents, let alone wrapping any of them?

I'm going to be a little bit smug now and say that I am almost finished. I've bought all of my presents and wrapped most of them too. I have ordered my Christmas meats and I even done my mum's Christmas shopping too, she now only has two people left to buy gifts for. Like I said, I really do like to be organised.

But onto my #weeklyroundup


Finally I got around to ordering my copy of the last instalment in Sarah J Maas's Throne of Glass series, Kingdom of Ash. At a massive 980 pages long I'll admit that I haven't been able to finish it yet as I only began reading in Monday evening but I'm already over 300 pages in, it's as good as the other books and honestly I'm not quite ready for this series to end.

Ultimate Co-Pilot Chewie - Toy Review

To people that know my youngest daughter, it's no secret that she is a real fan of Star Wars. Some people seemed shocked by this, in fact it was the optician the other week when she chose her first pair of glasses, he thought she was joking when she said she'd chose Star Wars and not Disney Princess. Her favourite character is Chewie (Chewbacca), she has her trusty Build-a-Bear version that goes everywhere with her. So I knew when I agreed to my latest toy review that in the moment of delivery, I'd be the 'best mum ever'.

Ultimate Co-Pilot Chewie is one of the latest interactive plush toys from Hasbro. It coincides well with the DVD release of the latest Star Wars film, Solo because as you'll know, Chewie is Han Solo's loyal friend and co-pilot.
