Playmobil EverDreamerz Series 2 Unboxing (Ad)

Hey readers, 

Playmobil have just release series 2 of its new collectable EverDreamerz. In the new series contains 5 big character boxes and 12 charcter surprise boxes. Below I will explain more about what the boxes contain. 

It is based on best friends Viola, Rosalee, Clare,  Starleen and Edwina stories of fun together but also showcasing each character with their their own unique characters. 

There are 12 additional characters to collect in surprise boxes, from Colorista to Erazorman, and Kimby to Karmela. Fans should also keep a lookout for the ultra-rare Unicorn Lady and her goldern cham. 

The suggested age for these toys is 7+.

These are what the big boxes and surprise boxes look like.

5 big surprise boxes.

* Rosalee (70472). 

*  Clare (70477).

* Viona (70473)








* Starleen (70474).

* Edwina (70476).

2 Surprise boxes. 

This doesn't come with an individual number only a name). In total there are 12 to collect included a limited one called Colorrista however it is a rare one to find!

* Mrs Unicorn.

* Graffiti-Skater.


Each big-box contains personalised toys related to the character and they are listed below.

* Magic pet.

* collectable card.

* Charm.

* Bracelet.

* Bead.

* Accessories.

* water pen.

* Stickers.

With the water pen, there are instructions on the leaflet that comes with the big surprise box. It is easy to use just simply open the pen and put some water in. 

Then you can simply colour in the stickers which bring to life the colour in them. I think this feature is one of my boys favourite because they love magic and playing with water.

One downfall of the instructions that come with every big surprise box is that it uses the same Edwina photo.

I think it would be better using the instructions with the figurine within the same box just to make it easier to follow the instructions.

I find the instructions not very clear which is a struggle as I have autism and get confused easily. However, there are some online but no information as to what sticker goes where so you have to guess. Luckily my husband is good at this kind of thing and helped me out.

With the instructions on the other side of the leaflet, there is a picture chart so you can tick which figures you have and this also includes the separate items of 12 surprise chart charts in surprise boxes.

The boxes of the picture of each character turn calls are lined up against each other to create a portrait of all the characters together. 

On the first cardboard cover of the big box at the side is writing saying open here where you pull the label which will, in turn, open up the box (which is the picture of the character box to keep and use as above).

Next, you have the box with the drawing which your child can colour in as an additional feature.

The first door has a package and then on the side is a sellotape take that off and it opens up into more chambers of goodies that contain other stuff to help with play and personalise your character.

There are also stickers with each box to collect that are of each character.

There is a charm bracelet with a personalised charm related to the character personality and what they like.  

Their little items that can be played with the character for example painter has paint and a bucket so, therefore, feeds the personality of the character.

There is of course stickers as all kids love stickers

These are smaller boxes with five surprises inside.

* surprise figure.

* collectable card.

* stickers.

* charm.

* accessories.

My kids love to mix and match which is a good idea as then they can experiment and play how the like. Both my 6 and 8 years old enjoyed playing with the figures and incorporated them in play.

A big hit was opening the boxes and seeing what surprise they get in them.

I like the idea of the colouring in the box giving it another element of fun.

Overall, I think they are a fun toy and you can get lots of added extras so you don't get just stuck with one thing so keeps kids more entertained.

Trends that should die now!

Hey readers,

There are so many trends that come and go. Some better than others and some that should just die out now. So, here are my top 5 trends that I think are awful that need to go ASAP.

Watch out girls then is a returning trend that is coming this summer - underbun! If you have not heard of an underbun it is basically where you have such short shorts that your bottom slips out.

 Now I don't care about flesh sharing but sometimes girls can show far too much for the eyes to see.

Nude leggings are just a no-no for me, sorry. They are not attractive and tell everyone the truth, no one wants to see them stretched over your backside unless your stick-thin it is revolting. 

They are also in a disgusting colour and they just not flattering at all, if you own a pair do us all a favour and bin them!

When will people learn of the dreaded nude leggings and how much it scares everyone

What is it with glitter in your roots, seriously it looks like someone has sneezed on your head or you have a really bad case of coloured dandruff. Whoever thought this was cool, it is not, so please just die off!

A recent trend that is growing in popularity is fur slides. To me, they look like something that resembles a middle-class lady of leisure that struts about in her silk dressing gown. They just look cheap and tacky, seriously if Rihanna fell off the cliff would everyone else jump off too?! I am glad I am so old that I just don't care anymore (not that did when I was younger) to care about being hip and fashionable.

Tracksuit bottoms with the word juicy plastered on the bottom just look awful. I thought they had there day but they seem to be reappearing in my local area, please just stop, I don't want to be forced to look at your bottom.

Fake tan just looks horrific, streaky and unnatural. Why to do this, it is just not right, are they blind, do women not see this. Ok, some can get it right but a majority go overboard or can not blend it incorrectly causing it to have that lovely streaky marking. I have done it once myself, never again.

 I looked like the angry orange and wasted money when I could have just brought a bar of chocolate and have been happy as Larry.

It's raining, It's pouring (A parody)

it's raining, it's pouring,

The kids are moaning,

So I shut the door and hid

in my big bed,

and let them get on with shouting.

It's boring, it's draining,

the kids won't stop winching,

so I took their chocolate,

whilst they continued banging.

I hate the term girl gang.

Hey readers,

There is this term knocking about on the internet called GIRL GANG and I hate it with a passion. 

Let me tell you why, well for a start I don't need people to help me. Nor do the idea that I am somehow being supported primarily because I am female. 

It is really not important to me to be liked because I am a girl and as sickly as it sounds I like a person because of who they are and not because they have a vagina.

I don't want to be an arse licker and you get that sense with this whole phenomenon of the term girl gang. 

I chose who I like and some girls quite frankly are twats whereas others are my idols and vice versa with males too.

I don't belong in gangs, it gives a sense of threatening feel as part of a mob and I don't believe in ganging up on people to like you or others.

The whole term of the gang is condescending anyway like we are not allowed to be called women because they are too hostile. 

That is what we are and we should celebrate it. But also we don't need to have to push our gender out there surely, shouldn't we just forget about that and celebrate the actual person.

There are all these kind of ideas of the people in a girl gang whereas if it is men they don't go on about their gender but merely just get to the point. 

Which is what is much more attractive. Some great women are not bold and assertive that doesn't make them less of a female and any less of a reason to celebrate them.

 You only get a certain type of person in these gangs but there is so much more to a person than a title.

I class myself as a feminist in the sense that everyone should have equal opportunities regardless of your gender. 

It should be fair and not sticking silly labels to an idea of empowering others when really all you are doing is excluding others. I

If you want help then cut the sectioning off and let's just celebrate people regardless of whether they have a vagina or not and see them as a person in their own right.

What is your take on the term girl gang? Love to hear your thoughts in the comment section down below.
