Scooby snacks cookie maker

An offical toy from scooby Doo. I think is costs about £15; I bought it for my daughter’s 6th birthday.
I hope this review will be particularly useful for all those mothers who were sucked in by the ready steady cook range of toys. This isn’t an ordinary kitchen appliance in a different colour and double the price. But this isn’t exactly a cookie maker either. It is more like a food scruncher! What you do is pour in ingredients like cornflakes, broken biscuits and chocolate chips; turn the handle round and round so it all becomes crumbs. It lands in a little bowl, in which you put a layer of jam (otherwise the other ingredients won’t stick together) and press down the presser (though you’re lucky if you can tell what the picture pressed into it is supposed to be. Then you leave it in the fridge to set for 20 minutes and voila! There’s your cookie! The reality is more like Voila! There’s your little pile of crumbs stuck together with jam!
But because the process of making the ‘cookie’ is so easy, a child as young as 5 or 6 can easily make this with a bare minimum of help from a parent. Nice and easy for the parent too – all you have to do is clear up the spilt breakfast cereal, and eat the left over chocolate chips. So actually, I really would recommend this toy. It is a bit sticky, but you can just imagine the fun the kids will have putting all kinds of food from your cupboard into these Scooby snacks!

Boots No 7 LIFT & luminate Day cream review
March 8, 2017
For me there’s a fine line between looking young and dewy, and looking fat and sweaty. This is the problem of having a round chubby face, and I’ve always gone as matte as possible with my make-up to avoid the second scenario as much as possible. However, as Boots no7 changed the formula of their Protect and Perfect Day cream, and I wasn’t as impressed as I was with their older version, I thought I would try out this one, which is part of their new Lift & Luminate range…..
The romance of a well
November 18, 2016
I was pretty much brought up on Enid Blyton and it instilled in me a desire to live in a cute cottage in a countryside village. A well in the garden would be an added bonus. Well, although more of a farmhouse than a cottage, I am lucky enough to have fulfilled that dream. We were told by the previous owner that the well in the garden used to also serve the farmworkers’ cottages opposite. The path leading from the well to an iron gate half way down the garden would suggest that’s true. We live at the top of a hill, and as far as I’m aware, the only other well at the top of the hill in Somerset is in a small village called Kilmersdon, which is famous for the Jack and Jill nursery rhyme. Wouldn’t it be cool if that’s a mistake and it was actually our well? Haha!….
mail order dog food review
Yes, this is a blog post about dog food! Natural grain-free food and treats from an online pet shop.
October 26, 2017
Loki has become the star of the show in several of my YouTube videos. He also commands attention whenever we take him anywhere; we love him to bits, but he can also be a bit embarrassing! He slobbers on everyone; bumps into them; accidentally knocks small children over and even when we meet people who are perfectly fine with all that, he will never take a treat from them. When family buy him expensive treats at Christmas, they’re lucky if they get a sniff. Even at the Pylle Happy Landings dog show, he wouldn’t take the free samples of handmade dog treats offered to him. He just isn’t interested. As a puppy we had to train him with cheap sausages and pieces of cheese – not the easiest of foodstuffs to take about with you. So when PetShop sent me a box of dog goodies to review, I didn’t hold out much hope….
