Review: Stick Man

**We were gifted tickets for Stick Man in exchange for this review.  As always all opinions are honest and my own** After a long weekend working it was back to normal this morning; Monday’s are a no preschool day so we are free to do whatever we like – usually housework and boring stuff but today we were off to the theatre to see one of our favourite stories come to life onscreen – Stick Man, at The Orchard Theatre, Dartford.

Review: Deluxe Dream Tent Space Adventure

The boy has hit the grand old age of four and sleeping seems to have become another issue – bedtime is no problem but he wakes up a lot and seems to a bit scared of the dark. So it seemed like an ideal time to be sent a Dream Tent to review – they come in different types including Space Adventure, Unicorn Fantasy, Dinosaur Island and Wonderland.

Review: Little Brian Paint Sticks

**This post contains affiliate links to products.  For more information please see my disclosure policy** I’ll admit I’m not good at the whole arts and crafts thing – the little dude loves drawing and painting, and of course the messier the better but he’s not the sort of child I can trust with pens.  Bless him. The side of my sofa and an offending hidden patch of wall are testament to this – yet he still wants to paint and draw.

Review: Thomas & Friends Alphaphonics

We’ve recently enjoyed the boy’s fourth birthday and we’ve been really trying to get into more educational toys, especially as he’s obsessed with toy cars.  I was sent a Thomas & Friends Alphaphonics to review and wondered if it would interest the boy at all.

Review: Rock of Ages at The Orchard Theatre, Dartford

What.  A.  Night. Last night I was invited to press night at The Orchard Theatre, Dartford to check out Rock of Ages, which is currently touring the UK. I’m a huge fan of jukebox musicals – and being an eighties child a musical built around classic rock from that period sounded epic.  Rock of Ages has enjoyed a successful run on Broadway, the West End and international tours plus a film adaptation starring Tom Cruise in 2012.  This UK tour runs until July 2019.
