Club Petz Bam Bam the Hamster from IMC Toys

Sometimes there are toys which you look at and you want to run a mile, but your child… your child is completely head over heels. Club Petz Bam Bam the Hamster falls into this category. This cute little pet was made to be added to our madhouse after we disappointed 5-year-old B with the news we couldn’t add another real-life hamster to our 3 cats and 2 dogs menagerie.Club Petz Bam BamThe arrival of Bam Bam was met with ridiculous amounts of excitement, and the moment the “Try Me” button was pressed the squeals of delight began. And I realised this pet would definitely be best confined to the boys’ bedroom.

For the moment Bam Bam is ‘hugged’ he begins shaking and bouncing and giggling with laughter. And that’s the thing. He’s a little loud. And it’s contagious. The boys love him. Cuddled Club Petz Bam BamI can’t knock it. Bam Bam is really cute, and furry. And you can completely see why Bam Bam makes children laugh.

And the boys loved him so much that of course Bam Bam went to bed with them that night. And of course the next day they insisted on taking Bam Bam with them for their sleepover at Grandma & Grampy’s (oh, I tried to contain my laughter!).

So, yes, Bam Bam is definitely one to bring smiles and laughter into the life of a child. And Bam Bam makes it really easy to get a child in a sulk to have a strop when you’ve managed to make them laugh by putting Bam Bam on their stomach. But Bam Bam is loud. Bam Bam is best creating happiness in a child’s bedroom. And then life is good.

Turtle Wax Car Wash Fun

Turtle Wax Car WashIf you know my husband, you’ll know how much he likes cars. So much so, for Christmas he bought me one. That sounds so much more than it is – I accidentally sold mine. Yep, even I can’t believe that happened. After managing for a few months with one car the frustration wore thin. So the opportunity to review Turtle Wax Car Wash goodies was a great opportunity to show him that I was actually grateful. So much so I set the children to work.Turtle Wax Car Wash WashlessHalfords have a massive range of Turtle Wax products and whilst me and hubby associate Turtle Wax with the traditional ‘wax on, wax off’ we were both really amazed with the range of products, making sure your car looks equally sparkly inside and out.

Admittedly, as someone who isn’t a massive fan of cleaning the car my favourite product was the Waterless Wash. Because yes, how simple? And of course, working out so much more reasonably priced than the car wash. And if you have a little one who just needs help reaching the higher reach, it’s job done.Turtle Wax Car Wash Washless WashAnd to go with getting the body of the car clean, there’s also products to make sure the rest of the body reach the same cleanliness. The ClearVue Glass Clean did manage a streak-free clean, something I was a little cynical of anything achieving based on my experience with polish and mirrors.Turtle Wax Car Wash Glass CleanDue to the range of products to hand, we also decided to try out the All Wheel Cleaner, which managed to clean up the whole wheel, offering more than just a surface clean.Turtle Wax Car Wash All Wheel CleanerThe simplicity of cleaning with the Turtle Wax range really is great for people who don’t like this particular chore. Cleaning up the car inside and out is straightforward, and based on the hubby’s response definitely worth the effort.

And if you do like making the effort, Turtle Wax have the more traditional ‘elbow wax’ products as well, if you like to inspect the cleanliness with a magnifying glass (hello dad!). 

For my children, they like the more traditional clean, with a bucket of water, so they put the Turtle Wax Super Clean Wash & Wax to the test- which not only kept them busy, but also cheered hubby up no end to be driving a clean car again.
