Anticipation in the Smyth house is at fever pitch, with four days left until Christmas. This morning we played with the Turtles' Pop-up Pizza play set, which needed reviewing at just the right time. My son played with the little sewer set for literally hours.
Now I've got to admit this, when I saw this set in the shops before, priced at £24.99, I thought that was a bit steep for what it was. However according to my son it's amazing, and the hours of non-stop play prove me totally wrong.
Another plus point is it's totally quick and easy to set up. No fiddly building or batteries needed. It folds flat so it can come along in the car to aunty's or granny's house over Christmas time.
My husband and son both love Turtles, so they dressed up in their new Christmas onesies for the occasion (available at Asda).
We also received a Mutagen Ooze Turtle to review. I've mentioned this ooze before, it looks like a carpet ruining nightmare, but actually has a strange consistency that doesn't stain or make a mess. So I wasn't horrified to see more arriving!
These retail around £9.99 and you can buy extra pots of ooze which come with one of four tiny turtles inside. Any of these products would make a great last minute pick-up present for a kid aged 4-10, girls too- I loved Michael Angelo when I was little and had his toy figure.
