My Golden Ticket

My Golden Ticket. This isn’t just a version of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with a child’s name slapped inside. Each child gets a different story, including their own unique candy, Oompa Loompa song and Wonkafied family tree. No two adventures are the same. Plus the book smells delicious! I kid you not.

The Born free foundation have some beautiful books for sale this year. I particularly love the Animal rescue book which is wordless. Perfect for my youngest who is learning to read. It features 11 animal spreads with an acetate between, so the child can rescue the animal and put it back in it’s natural environment.

Digital fun!

Kid’s desperate for something digital this Christmas? I have always been a little wary of downloading any old app on to my phone and table t for the kids as many are unsuitable or contain lots of in app purchases. This Azoomee app is the perfect solution. Suitable for children aged 5-9 it contains loads of films, t.v shows, games and audio books. There are no ads and no in app purchases. It has also been approved by the NSPCC. Available for £44.99 for a years subscription it’s well worth it for the hours of fun my kids have had from it.
