Never work with children or hamsters, with added VLOG

We have been asked to review The Littlest Pet Shop Hamster Playground.  Okay I admit its the kind of toy that makes my heart sink a little.  Lots of packaging, plastic, lots of fiddly bits, wierd anime style rodents that are scarier than the real life fluffy things (and I had the world's most evil hamster as a child).

But my children loved this toy, they even shared it, it is designed with playing together in mind.  I was impressed with the hamster ball doubling up as a container for all the tiny fiddly plastic bits which are a parent's nightmare, the Hoover's snack of choice and the four year old's dream.  I like the fact it helped them learn about pet care (and will hopefully distract them a little longer from wanting a real one).

Anyway actions speak louder than words, so here is our family review plus some out takes in which my lapse parenting and some other stuff is revealed:

It also went to the caravan with us, and was the perfect toy to occupy them in a small space.

Just to point out (from the mum who leaves sharp objects hanging around) that although my 2yo was involved in reviewing this,  it is a 4 plus toy, due to small parts.

Hey I used to have that spotty tablecloth!
Great review - funny and engaging. Miss L is quite the little star isn't she?!

I loved this vlog - have to admit the outakes were my favourite bit (as always..) I laughed outloud at the sharp things removal. I'm reminded of the time a toddler Zeph got hold of a breadknife at breakfast time and waved it enthusiastically at us. We had to drop a towel over him to get it back. I also loved the ending, devastatingly effective!
