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.

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!

Cadburys Christmas versus Thortons Christmas

In our house Christmas and Chocolate go hand in hand. I always buy a big hamper of chocolate to share around and we have chocolate Advent Calendars to count down the days.
Now there are lots of places to get your chocolate from but two of our favourites are Cadburys and Thorntons. I’ve decided to take a look at both and see what they have to offer for Christmas. Read on and then decide which you would go for Thorntons or Cadburys? There is a prize to be won for one of my lucky readers.

Advent Calendars

My kids adore Advent Calendars, a tiny piece of chocolate each day when they get home from school, and they know it’s getting closer to Christmas by how many window they have opened.
3 cadbury chocolate advent calendars
Cadburys are offering 3 Advent Calendars for £6. Sounds like a bargain to me!

Thorntons also have a special offer on their Advent calendars, they are all under the 3 for 2 offer, with the cheapest ones being £5 that means it will cost you £10 for three calendars, but you can mix them for a wider choice, and even choose more expensive ones, although it’s always the cheapest that you will get free. 
Size wise, these £5 ones have the same amount of chocolate than the Cadbury ones, but you do get a bigger variety.

Selection Boxes

Selection Boxes are a great stocking filler and a fab last minute gift for kids. I always wrap a few spare ones up and keep them under the tree, then if we have surprise guests at Christmas I can give the kids a Selection Box. 
Cadburys selection box
1 x 169g Cadbury Selection Box containing six Cadbury chocolate products including Dairy Milk, Crunchie, Dairy Milk with Oreo, Dairy Milk Buttons, Double Decker and Wispa. £2.99
Thorntons do not do Selection Boxes, but you can buy gifts like Chocolate Santas or Snowman at a slightly more expensive price but again they do come under the 3 for 2 offer so great for mixing gifts.

Christmas Gifts

If chocolate is not gift enough in itself you can always buy chocolate with a gift.
1 x 360g Cadbury Dairy Milk Gift Bar with ‘Merry Christmas’ cardboard wrap sleeve, 1 x Cadbury Dairy Milk Gorilla Soft Toy (Height: 24cm suitable from 3 months upwards)
£13.50
I couldn’t find anything similar at Thorntons.

Chocolate and Alcohol

How about a little tipple with your chocolate? Or a more grown up gift? Both Cadburys and Thorntons do a selection of alcohol and chocolate mixes with price ranges to suit all budgets. Here I’ve picked two similar for comparison.
1 x 360g Milk Tray- two layers of Milk chocolates, 1 x 75cl Il Cortile Sereno Prosecco Brut NV- Italian ABV. 11.5%
Bottega Gold Prosecco (750ml, Alcohol 11% vol.)
2 x Sicilian Mousse Bag (110g)

Hampers

Need something to please the whole family, or looking for an extra special gift? How about a Hamper. Both Cadburys and Thorntons have lots to chose from, with a range of prices.
1 x willow hamper basket with fasterner and handle , 1 x Cadbury Heroes Tub 660g, 1 x Cadbury Roses Tub 729g, 1 x Cabury Christmas Selection Box 169g, 1 x Eclairs Carton 400g, 1x Maynards Bassetts Wine Gums Carton 400g, 2 x Cadbury Mousse Chocolate Snowman Bars 30g in a Cadbury purple organza bag, 1 x Christmas Cadbury Gifts Direct Gift Box which contains: 1 x Christmas Selection Pack 95g, 2 x Freddo Popping Candy 18g, 1 x Dairy Milk Winter Edition Bar 100g, 1 x Cadbury Buttons Tube 72g, 1 x Cadbury Snow Bites Bag 90g, 1 x Cadbury Fudge Mini Tube 72g

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.
