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!

Review of the Rose and Crown in Dunton Green
Review of the Rose and Crown restaurant in Dunton Green, Sevenoaks, Kent
February 9, 2018
There is a fundamental problem about going to visit my parents, and that is that the dog has to sleep in our bedroom. If he doesn’t he ends up scratching the door or waking everyone up whining, so instead I suffer with the noise he makes while he sleeps. Imagine something like a cross between an elephant and a sea-lion snoring whilst dreaming of mating, and you’ve almost got the level of noise our beloved Loki makes at night. (And day for that matter. Whenever he’s asleep basically.) So I admit, I was in somewhat of a tired daze the day we went to the Rose and Crown pub restaurant in Dunton Green to celebrate Dad’s birthday. However, I do remember the essentials well enough to write a little review….
Tarte eyeshadow palette review
A review of the Tarte Tarteist Amazonian Clay eyeshadow palette
November 14, 2017
I am constantly on the hunt for a matte eyeshadow palette, and if I see one, I will probably buy it! I honestly don’t know why they aren’t more popular, because I just cannot get on with an ordinary eye shadow! I had a little splurge on make-up a couple of years ago and talked about my issues with the No7 eyeshadows and the Maybelline eyeshadows that I bought. They simply do not look good on me and the pigmentation is rubbish. I decided it was about time I stopped faffing about with mid-range High Street make-up and actually spend some money….
