Giggles Galore And Family Fun At Camp Bestival

When it comes to Camp Bestival nobody is left out. There really is something for anyone from 1-100 and at no point throghout the whole festival is there time for anyone to get bored.

As the countdown begins the line ups are looking more and more exciting and if it’s things to keep the family happy you are looking for or having some belly laughs for yourself then this year all these bases are certainly covered.

Top of the comedy bill is award winning Sean Lock who is probably best known for his captain spot on 8 Out Of 10 Cats who will be taking to the stage in the Big Top on Sunday afternoon.

Veteran of comedy Dave Jones will also be heading back to Camp Bestival this year. He has been touring festivals and comedy clubs for three decades now and always enjoys his time with his family at Camp Bestival.

Another familiar face who will be returning this year is Andrew Maxwell, one comedy great modern stand-ups.

If its more family fun you are after then the line up is looking pretty spectacular already!

Camp Bestival regulars Mr Tumble and Dick and Dom will be there to keep the little ones entertained, joined again by Mister Maker And The Shapes who were a huge hit with my youngest ones last year.

Something that we are really looking forward to is the Nautical Gorilla Circus And Flying Trapeze School that will have everyone in awe at their dazzling and death defying acts, there will even be the chance to have a go yourself.

Andy And The Odd Socks will be making an apperance with the fun filled show of singing and dancing that is sure to entertain everyone.

The Magic Meadow will be home to a very special guest this year – The Whale Of The Pirates Misadventure. There will be a chance to climb inside the 50ft inflatable sperm whale and see all sorts of seaside tales.

Lastly a very exciting festival exclusive is going to be show casing this year – ZSL London Zoo: Gruesome Nature Live with an interactive musical show. There is all fun an interesting facts to find out about from who has the slimiest eyeball to which species of animal can endure fire.

Mr Tumble Spotty Bag And Interactive Toy Review


There is not a child I know that hasn’t at some point had a love for Mr Tumble.

His bright, engaging character has had all of mine glued to the TV screen and is currently number five’s absolute favourite.

When we were asked to try out a couple of toys from the new collection I knew he would be more than happy to give them a try.

One of the things that Mr Tumble is notorious for is his spotty bag.

This scaled down bag with adjustable straps is perfect to sit on little shoulders and with its bright colours and different textured materials it works perfectly to stimulate their senses.

Inside there are five cards with Makaton signs that he has loved to try and create himself.


The next toy we tried out was the Mr Tumble with fun tumble tap.


This cuddly, soft Mr Tumble has the tumble tap to hand at all times which comes with five different icons that show some of his favourite phrases.

Number five’s face lit up each time he came across a new phrase and soon started to mimick the familiar words.


As well as this he sings two songs which we all ended up joining in with whilst he cute red nose lit up.


Both of these toys were a real hit and I love that as well as being a familiar face from the TV they help with building his knowledge of touch, sound recognition and dexterity.

We are now looking to see what else we can add from the range.

Are your little ones fans of Mr Tumble?
