Appy Kids Co!

With it being the summer time I am finding it nearly impossible to keep snacks and drinks in the house, aren’t you?!
My little girl is an eating, drinking, talking and moving machine, so whenever the lovely team over at appy kids co asked me if I could review some of their new drinks and snacks that aren’t even out in the shops yet, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on them for the kids to enjoy!

Whenever the drinks and snacks from appy kids co arrived Amellia was super excited that they were covered in minions! We love the minions movie in our house. It always provide us all with giggles, smiles and  quality time together. Having a much-loved film on healthy snacks and drinks is also a great way to encourage children to eat them. Thankfully for me though, Amellia will try anything at all and enjoys near enough everything! With Dylan, it wouldn’t make any difference what was on the packaging etc, it just depends on what the actual food looks like.

Amellia got stuck right into the juice as soon as we opened it, and she really loved it! She finished it right up and she then polished off a pack off the Mulberries & Raisins and had another two packets and gave her little brother a pack too!  She tried to give her brother a drink too, but unfortunately this ended up him covered in juice as he just squeezed the pouch! Though with a little help with his next one he really enjoyed it, and was trying to get some of his sisters on too!

You can find out where stores near you are that stock them and what other items they do over on their website at; www.appykidsco.com

Tom’s Storytime

Tom gave me the wonderful opportunity to review his books that he has been developing along side a website and an app for children! Today is launch day for his books and website! Here are my thoughts on the books and website! =]

Tom’s storytime is broken down into three different areas; Sprites which is for children aged 0-6, Adventurers which is 3-8 and Interactive which is for any age that loves to get involved in the story!

 

Whenever I received these books I was very excited for bed time to share them with my little girl and see what she would make of them! I had a quick flick through them before she got home from school, and really loved the art work in the first book we were sent to review. Very bright, colourful and cute little characters!

When it was bed time we snuggled on the sofa with my laptop in front of us and told Amellia we would be reading a new book today and that it was on my laptop.. now that bit confused her! But Tom has told me that you can purchase these books on Amazon for £5.99 each today or 99p each for on the Kindle! I personally prefer a real book for the kids to handle and flick through rather than one on a device but that choice is up to you as he has made both available!
Bug hunt was my favourite one out of the selection that I was sent, and it is for the Sprites!

It also teaches little ones some things about bugs too and the little twist at the end is fantastic and made my little girl rethink what she thought of this certain mischief little bug!
She really enjoyed the book and has had it reread to her several times after asking for it!

The next book.. I wasn’t so keen on but my little girl loved it and said it was her favourite one out at the lot we had! To me I thought the main character actually looked a little creepy, but it seemed that was just me as my daughter loved this book!

This is Davey Chicken and his book is for the Adventures! It has lots of rhyming words in it and catchy little sayings that by the end of the book my little girl was joining in with saying them. In this book he is a very bad chicken, though by the end something has changed him, but what is it?
Take a read and see! =]

If you fancy purchasing either of these books or having a look at the other ones Tom has created, check them out here.

Alongside the books he has also created an interactive website with videos of the story’s being read to you by a lady in a wonderful wooden story time chair!
On the website there is also the first of the interactive books that he has made, I have watched this and I am sure my little girl will have lots of fun letting her imagination go wild as she listens! You can listen to both of those books being read and enjoy the interactive book here!
