The Ugglys Pet Shop Pet Store - Review

You may remember we featured the Uggly's Pet Shop Dirty Dog Wash Van, which we loved. Now we have the Uggly's Pet Shop Pet Store! "Build up a stinky stack of gross homes to create the Uggliest Pet Store in town. Each gross home comes with its own stenchy sound and exclusive pet to display".
This stacking pet store forms part of the range of The Uggly's Pet Shop toys and comes with one exclusive pet - Manic monkey! He has 100 other pet friends sold separately. Happily we have about 8 of them so we've added a few to this review. Other 'homes' can be bought separately to add to this store. Little monkey was very excited to receive this addition to the range and quickly found his dirty dog van so that he could play with the two toys together.
Like the van the store has numerous gross sounds (including burping and barfing) and there are ugly images on the packaging and building itself! It only comes with the blue roof, the static white block with red opening door and the yellow removable home set on the 'concrete and mud base'. Disappointing when the packaging implies more. However we do love The Uggly's range and although gross we think it's great fun! We intend to collect more of the pets and maybe more of the homes too.
When you press down on the roof which is removable it makes numerous sounds as mentioned and so too does the monkeys yellow home when pressed. The battery pack is underneath the yellow removable home and the set does come complete with two button cell batteries. This toy retails at £12.99.
As you can see the store 'blocks' can be stacked as previously mentioned and they can even be stacked on top of the roof too! Aside from this set there are six more gross homes to collect. They are Bone home, Poop coop, Doggy dump, Mutt hut, Cat stack and Rank tank! I'm sure my two monkeys would love them all!
Overall we are pleased with this toy from Character but feel the packaging is a little misleading and maybe a little over priced?
Recommended for ages 5+ and not suitable for under 3's due to small parts.
We were sent this set for the purpose of this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
We're going on an adventure

Keep The Kids Busy (Crafting)

The monkeys were sent a fab selection of craft bits and pieces from the popular Wilko to help keep the kids busy this summer and boy are we pleased they did! The weather has not been kind at times! How wet has August been?
We've coloured and taken the colouring books on holiday with us! That was a good idea on my part as it rained a lot there too. Big monkey has painted and little monkey has had too much fun with glitter! He wanted a cat (which I drew with glue). The whole glitter tub was used (and salvaged) again!
Little monkey also chose to make a tree from the glitter paints and lolly pop sticks!
He was very proud of his creation!
We even managed to get red paint on our lounge carpet. Whoops! Have the kids been keep busy though? Of course they have.
The biggest kid of the house (aka daddy) got in on the action too and made an elephant from one of the kits sent. I never knew he could sew. Like little monkey he was also proud! 

Wilko have a huge selection of activities to keep the kids busy and the arts and craft bits have really helped to keep the boredom at bay when we've been indoors sheltering from the rain! We've still got stuff left to while away those autumn weekends that are drawing in! 

Thanks Wilko.

A Photo A Day! Project 365

Its' been another mixed week weather wise so we've done what we can when we can! No work for me this week as hubby and I were away for a few nights last weekend. It was lovely. Here's our week in photo's.

Day 235. Lovely morning in Cambridge so after a walk along the river hubby and I went on a Punt tour.
Day 236. Monday was not so good! Wet and half the temperature of just two days before! Yuck!
Day 237. A visit to see friends from My Buggy Junction, they were all clued to something on TV!
Day 238. Woken up far too early so I sneaked back off to bed with a coffee and dozed whilst the monkeys played.
Day 239. At last some blue sky! Yipee.
Day 240. Exploring (and hiding) and RHS Hyde Hall as newly enrolled members.
Day 241. The new skywalk at a fab country park close to us. Too high and scary without daddy to help so we'll go back and do it another day!
