Have a safe and happy summer! Giveaway CLOSED

I have three great products to share and give away today which I think can make a real difference to your summer!

1 Avoid ear damage

We first bought ear defenders at Camp Bestival, children can hear higher and lower frequency sounds far better than adults. We were rarely close enough to speakers for noise to be a health and safety issue, but the ear defenders allowed the kids to zone out when they were ready to sleep.

They have come in really handy since for more than just festivals, we’ve taken them to Silverstone race track, used them on the aeroplane to Italy when Mr G found all the noise a bit much, and for firework displays. Mr G even wears them around the house from time to time, mainly when he wants to avoid listening to me.

At £13.49 these 3M ones are a small price to pay for peace of mind, and peace and quiet. They are much cheaper than buying them at a festival or event.  I have a green, and a pink pair of Peltor 3M ear muffs to giveaway. 

2. Avoid panic if your child gets lost

Kattoos we first discovered at Camp Bestival when Mister G point blank refused to wear a wristband with our phone number on. After a screaming hissy fit in the sun, we caught sight of the woman from the Kattoos stand who furnished him with a temporary phone number tattoo with a space to write our number on. He will probably spend the whole summer ‘Kattooed’ after our experience of losing him at Legoland. They are perfect for days out in the city, the beach, festivals and events. £5.99 for 5 Kattoos plus a special pen is a small price to see us through the big events of our Summer. I have two sets of Kattoos to giveaway.

3. Avoid boredom on journeys and on holiday


Dobble is a fab game in a tin which is perfect for journeys, camping or holidays. It takes snap as it’s basic inspiration but uses pictures to make a game that is simple but a whole lot more exciting. Each of the 55 round cards in the tin has 8 symbols and there’s always only one symbol shared between any two cards in the pack. It is for ages 6+ and playable by 2-8 players. There are a range of minigames.  Miss L (6) and I really enjoyed it and Mister G (4) was pretty good at the basic game too. Dobble is retailing at £9.74 on Amazon. I have two games of Dobble to giveaway.

Have a safe and happy summer!
