Ain’t No Party Like A Num Noms Party

Last Sunday we were up bright and early to catch the train into Shoreditch to celebrate the launch of Num Noms Series 4 at All Stars Lanes in Brick Lane.

For those of you that aren’t familiar with Num Noms, they are basically a collection of super cool collectables that come in the shape of scented characters, lip glosses, nail varnishes and light up characters that can be stacked, raced and traded to your hearts content.

After trying out a collection of Series 3 Num Noms my guys were super excited to see what the new collection would have to offer!

We walked into the most spectacular party where there were literally Num Noms galore, from a whole play area dedicated to them, images of them all over the big screens and a creative area where the boys loved trying out the new nail polish maker.

This fab new toy allows you to make your own individual nail polish with scents such as strawberry and banana with a sprinkling of glitter if you fancy.

Im sure this is going to be on the top of many Christmas lists this year!

The fun didn’t stop there and we had after a game of bowling that was made pretty competitive by Izzy they tried their hand at icing some Num Nom inspired biscuits with the lovely people from Biscuitiers.

I was more than impressed with the level of concentration that was kept by my extremely active children and the results were pretty tasty too.

They then all headed off to get their faces painted while I got treated to a much needed manicure at the nail bar.

Suitabaly worn to from all the fun it was time for some lunch and a chat about what they had thought of the day.

They were on an absolute high from such a fantastic afternoon…probably a little to do with the pic’n’mix and yummy milkshakes too.

What I really love about Num Noms is the fact that even though they are branded more towards girls, my boys absolutely love playing with them alongside their sister who even after hitting high school this year is still very much a fan and has loved building her collection at home.

Do you have any Num Noms fans at home?

L.O.L Surprise Launch

Over the years we have had countless collections of collectables. Some have been a huge hit and some have been five minute wonders.

When we were asked along to the launch of the US hit LOL Surprise I was intrigued as to what this new craze was going to bring.

We arrived at Westfield and were immediaty greeted with a huge stage and lots of buzzing children that were eagar to see the launch of the dolls that was going to be hosted by the hit YouTube child star Tiana from Toys And Me.

My daughter spends hours watching all of her unboxing videos and was super excited to get to meet her in person.

After Tiana launched through a huge paper screen to take to the stage she unveiled the new LOL Surprise dolls in front of a a crowd of little ones that were hanging on her every word.

There was then a chance to go and meet her in and take away our own doll to take a look at for ourselves.

We headed off with a gang of blogging buddies to investigate what had caused such a big hype over in America.

For me the best way to describe these collectables is that it is like having a ‘pass the parcel’ package all to yourself.

Each ball is covered with seven layers that hold a secrecy message sticker, collectable sticker sheet, water bottle charm, shoes, outfit, accessory and finally the doll under each separate layer.

The doll itself will be a complete suprise and it is up to you to find out if she will cry, wee, spit or change colour.

 

The dolls were a huge hit with Izzy as well as Frankie and they loved the element of surprise that came under each wrapper and the want to know which each different doll would do.

I can for see a lot of pocket money being spent on these as Izzy is very keen to grow her collection.
