Little Star reviews kids croquet….Lawn Croquet Set from Garden Games

Croquet…sedate…relaxed…sophisticated. Not three words that spring to mind when I think of my kids. But….I have never played kids croquet with them, so we shall see, eh? This Lawn Croquet Set from Garden Games would make a good large reward as its a more expensive item. So perhaps something to save for a really, really special […]

Little Star reviews….Le Toy Van Mixer Set

I think I may have said before…that I don’t do baking. However, I do pretend baking…even I can’t stuff that up as it requires just a pinch of imagination, and very little skill. So Chatterbox and Stuntboy were very pleased to get the opportunity to review the Le Toy Van Mixer Set from This is […]

Little Star Reviews… Omzak: Space Cat Warrior

We received a book to review a few weeks ago: Omzak the Space Cat Warrior by Jaylen Grace. It’s out on October 25th, 2012. I have to admit I giggled a little at the title of the book; but that’s probably because I am a wee bit childish… So what’s the story? Omzak is, erm, […]

Little Star Reviews….makedo

We got some lovely stuff to review. It happens to us here at Little Star towers sometimes. This was different though; THIS free stuff was much anticipated by Chatterbox as it involved her favourite thing and my least…craft. She had got to the end of her progress chart, and she wanted a craft session with […]

Little Star reviews…. Pumpazing

There was chaos in the little star household this week, as we received a game from Drumond Park which made little Stuntboy even more mad than usual….   What is it? Its a simple game; you pump the arms of Zingy after placing the four coloured Zingy heads into his body. They fly out. If […]

Little Star…Magic Town App Review for the iPad – it has a free version!

We love reading in our house. So we thought we would do a Magic Town app review for the iPad. Little Star was particularly looking forward to getting his mits on this one….probably because I’m a librarian and so reading is more or less required in our house. Unless you are Brad of course, and […]

Little Star Reviews….Peppa Pig Sports Day App for the iPad and iPhone

iPhone iPad So some lovely people sent Little Star a Peppa Pig Sports Day app to review – it would be rude not to, don’t you think…. Cost – £2.99 8/10 This is actually quite expensive for Little Star – think he has Scottish roots….I guess it’s because it character based, but I have to […]

Little Star Reviews…Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse for on the move working

When we got this mouse from the lovely people at Anywhere Working, we thought that we had been asked to review something from Star Trek. To be honest, it looked like one of those flippy things you talk to people on – bet the geeks would know what it was called really… *answers below* It […]

Little Star Review…Moshi Monsters Moshlings App for the iPad and iPhone

iPAD iPhone Let me fess up, as I am an honest little star… The KiddyCharts kids, and me, well we don’t actually play Moshi Monsters. We know what they are, and Stuntboy even got the Moshlings tree and some Moshlings for his birthday, but we don’t go or subscribe to That’s mainly because we […]
