The Magic of Disney Marvel

We are a house full of Marvel fans, with Roy and I being experts in the field. Naturally we’ve been keen for the boys to jump on the bandwagon and to our delight they have, with gusto! There really is something magical about the Marvel brand, from the TV shows, the comics, the cartoons, the books and now the games.

The Disney Marvel Kids site is jam-packed with games and activities perfect for ages 4yr+ which revolve around their favourite Marvel Characters. We limit the boys’ digital time to what we consider acceptable levels and some of their time on tablets or the PC are spent on educational sites. That said, every now and again it’s great to see them kick back and really enjoy some good old fashioned hero vs villain action.

As parents Roy and I felt it was our duty to test out these games thoroughly before the boys played them. Roy likes Spider-Man Rescue Mission but I’m more of a fan of ¬†Gamma Storm Smash.

The Disney Marvel Kids site is packed full of games, videos, activities and more so that if your mini Marvel fans are looking for something to do on a rainy (or snowy!) afternoon you can be reassured that they are in the safe hands of their favourite Avengers (and you won’t be hearing “I’m boooooored”).

For off PC fun the site has a great selection of free printable activity sheets to keep kids busy (while they unknowingly practice a number of skills from school).

We’ve had great fun investigating the site (the boys have too), and will look forward to completing the villain and hero work sheets and activities soon.

Mia Tui Grace – The Bag of Bags

If you are looking for a fabulous bag for yourself or are Christmas shopping keep reading!

Back when Mia Tui came to the UK I was offered the opportunity to review a couple of their bags and instantly fell in love. I’ve bought their bags and purses as gifts too. Fast forward to 2015 and I’ve been given the opportunity to try my old favourite (the Grace) once more. The Grace still sports the incredibly organised and useful interior however is in a softer more buttery leathery feel material (which is incredibly hard-wearing).

The huge selling point for the Mia Tui bags is the interior. I have tried and better tried to photograph the inside of my bag to show the insides off at their best and failed miserably so make sure you watch the short official Grace Bag video at the end of the post.

For me the space and organisation of the Grace is the clear winner. You have two internal side pockets, each of which may be used with the clutches provided, one which matches the outside of the bag and a clear one. The amount you can store in these is amazing. The “main” section of the bag is again very roomy as you can see here:

Despite having TWO large jute bags, my personal sized filofax, large purse, phone, keys, a pen and more in the bag it still zips up comfortably and as you can see below still doesn’t look stuffed.

 

Ta daaa!

Ta daaa!

As well as the space the features such as the long elastic key clip (a saviour for people such as me who hate digging about looking for keys), phone pouch, space for your pens and the external roomy zip pocket make the Grace (and all of the Mia Tui bags) that little extra special.

Before posting this review I’ve tested the Grace well from school runs, to shopping trips and even a rush to hospital for tests. Despite this, the exposure to all weathers, the playground floor and my children she is still looking as new as she did on the day I received her.

I’m picky about what I will recommend to others however I wouldn’t hesitate to show off, recommend or buy for others anything from the Mia Tui range, particularly the Grace which is a reliable stylish every day bag.

*I was sent this bag free of charge in exchange for an impartial review based purely on my own experiences and opinions, Mia Tui have had no control over the content of this post.

We're going on an adventure
