Super Ski Jump Review and Give Away

A Unique Table Top Game

Super Ski jump is a new and unique table top game of skill that’s a whole heap of fun. Played by 2 -4 players (8+) over three thrilling rounds, the aim of the game is to get your skiing character flying down the ramp, perform some tricks and then perfect a landing. 

Points are scored for the type of playing piece used, skis, bathtub, sledge or snowboard, how many flips and the type of landing. Practice makes perfect!

How To Play

After choosing your character and playing piece the youngest goes first. The ramp can be adjusted to one of three heights then the playing piece is placed at the top. Turn the knob to send the playing piece flying down the ramp and use your skill and judgement to press the button at the right time to send your playing piece flipping into the air. Count up your points and mark them on the score pad. Then it’s time for the next player. 

Each player has three turns, choosing a playing piece for each turn. Then all the scores are added up and highest score wins.

In the Box

In the box you will find the ski jump which requires some assembly, a landing ramp, four characters, four playing pieces, a scoring pad and a page of stickers. 

Once assembled the ski jump will not fit in the box, but you can take it apart. In my video you can see how easily my Little Man, aged 8, put the ski jump together again.

Our Verdict.

This game is totally addictive and will get all the family wanting a turn. The game play is pretty basic, involving turning a knob and pressing a button, but with each different playing piece behaving differently, it’s not so easy as it looks. Also, you can adjust the height of the ramp giving each piece a different speed. Trying to perform the perfect stunt and then landing is a task in itself, but a fun one. 

You will want to keep trying and trying until you get it perfect, and then you’ll whoop with excitement when you do.

What Would be Your Cadbury Invention?

I’m a big lover of Cadbury Chocolate and a native of the original Cadbury land of Bournville.  Today I have two treats for you. One is a discount code on an Inventor Selection, the second is a chance to create your own chocolate bar and have it made and sold by Cadbury’s.

Inventor Selection

I’ve always been a big fan of the Cadbury Letterbox selection, well now you can make your own by choosing four of your favourite bars in the Inventor Selection. What would you pick? My selection would be Caramel, Fruit and Nut, Oreo and Oreo Mint.

All four bars arrive in a box slender enough to go in the post, so you could really make someone’s day and send them a super gift. It’s only £10 too. If you use the code MADBURY you can even get 25% off your order. Double yummy.

Win a Beautiful Piece of Personalised Jewellery from Kaya Jewellery – review and competition

I was asked if I’d like to review a piece from Kaya Jewellery and couldn’t wait to get choosing. I took special care in picking out the piece I wanted and now I can offer you the same opportunity too. Read on for a fabulous competition where you can win a £40 gift voucher to spend at Kaya Jewellery.

I love how Kaya Jewellery focus on the special bond between a mother and her children and you can see it here in the Mother and Daughter collection. There is also a selection for son’s too, even brother and sister sets, how charming is that.
With having three children I did think it would be difficult to choose but then I remembered that Star turns thirteen this year. Yes, my baby is going to be a teenager! To mark this special occasion I have chosen a beautiful necklace just for her. I remember when I turned thirteen my Mum bought me a silver necklace, it was a little Dusty Bin from the television show 321. So, maybe this can become a family tradition?
I choose to call Star her nickname because that’s what she is, a shining star. With all she’s been through already in her life she is always smiling and making the best of things, and she refuses to change for anyone. So the first thing I looked for was a star and I found a pretty star necklace. Next I was able to add a pretty pink swarovski pearl before choosing what to engrave. On the front I have had her first name and on the back ‘our star.’
The necklace arrived within a couple of days and was packaged in a pretty box. It was really beautiful and I’m so glad I chose it. I’m sure that Star is going to love it too.
 

Competition

Now it’s your turn to choose a piece of jewellery that you could win in my latest give away. It’s easy to enter via the widget below and you can gain an extra entry by telling me in the comments which piece of jewellery on Kaya Jewellery.co.uk you would like to win. (If you are the winner you will be allowed to change your mind and buy whatever you like with your voucher.)
Good Luck!

Shhh! Don’t Wake Dad – Review and Give Away

We’ve been reviewing the game Shhh! Don’t Wake Dad and I’m sure it will be a great Christmas present. We do love our board games in this house and this one is a great addition. If you’d like to win a game yourself then why don’t you enter my give away at the end of this post?

Now, who snores? I know I do, but the winner in our house has to be Dad! In this game you have to get the treats without waking the snoring Dad. So just like real life then.

In the game, Dad is sleeping in the middle of the board, snoring away as usual. The hungry kids have to make their way from their beds along the hazardous route to the fridge to get to the chocolate cake, all without waking Dad.

PLAYING THE GAME

Players are all dealt the same number of cards and take it in turns to spin the spinner.  Then, against the constant cacophony of Dad’s electronic snoring sounds (which give everyone the giggles!), they travel around the board.  Most of the spaces on which they land feature a picture, and if the player already holds the card that matches the image, they are safe.  But if not, they must take a deep breath and press Dad’s alarm clock down the number of times indicated on the space…

C:Langshot CommunicationsDRUMOND PARK 2015QUARTER 2Kids Shoot Andy LR picsA5Don't Wake Dad (awake) Callum&3 LR.jpg

If Dad stays asleep, it’s “Phew” – and the game continues.  But if he wakes up, the player is sent back to their slippers, to begin the journey again.  But he or she does at least get to keep that hazard card, which will protect them should they confront that hazard again later in the game.

Dad is then settled back down to sleep…  Play continues, with plenty more twists and turns for everyone to negotiate along the way. Finally, one of them arrives in the kitchen. Here, the perils of Dad’s alarm clock have to be faced one last time…

The player presses the clock down…  Everyone holds their breath…
IF DAD DOESN’T WAKE, the player has reached that delicious
 slice of cake – AND WON THE GAME!

This game is bound to be played over and over and would be a fantastic Christmas Present. If you would like to win a copy then please enter via the widget at the end of this post.

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I’ve also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me…is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I’ve loved. If I don’t love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It’s always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I’ll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
