Wheely Bug

Wheely bug review

Percy fell in love with this in an instant, naming the ladybird Gaston after the pet in Ben and Holly. At first she was a little wary as it moves in all directions, a little different to the forwards and backwards she has been used to. Within no time at all though she was racing up and down the patio ...

My Messy Adventure

Be outrageous and go the whole hog: Matilda surprises Gabby Logan as she is the first to try ‘My Messy Adventure,’ a brand new interactive story featuring some of Roald Dahl’s most famous characters. The story was created by Persil, the Roald Dahl Literary Estate and Quentin Blake to encourage families to get outdoors this summer

I went to the My Messy Adventure and had a go myself and it seems it would be a great hit the children aged 5 to 10 as it allows you to use your own pictures to go with the story while imploring them to do fun, yet silly, things to move onto the next page. I rated it 4.5 ...
