Playmobil Scooby Doo Toy Review

 My children aged 5 and 7 adore Scooby-Doo and will often watch it on T.V as it is one of their favourite shows. So when I heard about the new Playmobil Scooby Doo range I knew this would be something that both of them would enjoy playing with and we were kindly sent some of the new toys to try out and see what they both thought. The new range of Scooby-Doo toys are to coincide with the realise of the latest Scooby-Doo film, which will be premiering at home and I am sure my children will ask to pay to download and watch.

Playmobil sent us three toys from the range. We were sent the Mystery Machine, a set with Scooby, Shaggy and a Ghost and four mystery figure blind bags.  The children were super-excited when the box of toys arrived and could not wait to start playing.

Getting Crafty This Christmas With Design Bundles


Being on 'lockdown' seems to have made so many people reassess their life and discover or re-discover hobbies that they never knew they had. There has been a huge rise in the number of people baking, decorating, gardening and crafting as people look at new ways to keep occupied as they finally have the time to do things that they have put off. I know of so many people who have discovered new skills and have used the extra time at home to be creative in all sorts of different ways, as not only does it keep you occupied but doing crafty things yourself often means that you can save money too, or you may even learn a new skill you can sell and make a few extra pennies from. Super important at this uncertain time in the world.

A few friends that I know have recently started up little craft businesses selling personalised items, prints and even clothing. My own teenage daughter is one of them, as she sadly recently lost her part-time job due to the lockdown impact on her workplace (she worked in hospitality). As she is studying art for her A-Levels she has put her artistic streak to good use by setting up a handmade gift company - with a little help from me of course. It is still early days and we don't have the website or Facebook page up and running yet as we are busy making stock but we will hopefully be launching it in August. We will be selling mainly handmade wooden and clay decor gifts and of course some Christmas items.
