Go Mini Power Boost Racer Reviews

Have you checked out our new Go Mini collection? It’s a hugely popular range of toys, perfect for all boys and girls who just love to play with cars. One of the newest additions is the Go Mini Power Boost Racer. The Go Mini Power Boost Racer is bigger than the Go Mini Stunt cars and is designed for all children aged 3 years and up (and even adult fans of Mini’s too!). We love it but you don’t have to take our word for how awesome it is, we thought we’d share some of the excellent reviews we’ve received from parents.

We love to read the reviews of all our toys and send our thanks to all the mums, dads and children who take the time to give us their feedback.  Please take the time to check out a few reviews and see what all the Go Mini fuss is about.

Can You Roar as Loud as Henry Hugglemonster?

Posted on August 08, 2014 by Lynette - | 0 Comments

Fans of Henry Hugglemonster will adore our latest new release in our Henry Hugglemonster collection. It’s roarsome!

The Henry Hugglemonster Roar Back is for children aged 10 months and over, he’s soft and cuddly making him the perfect bedtime buddy but he’s also a little bit magic too! One press of his left hand Henry will spring to life, speaking phrases from the hit TV show! But that’s not all…

Henry Hugglemonster Roar Back is an interactive toy and he’ll copy everything you say to him! To activate this fun mode all you need to do is give his right hand a little squeeze. Once activated his nose will flash to let you know he’s ready to begin listening and repeating what you say to him. If you roar, Henry will roar back! If your say hello, Henry will say hello back too!

This is a really fun toy for all fans of the show, which can be seen on Disney Junior.  If your children haven’t discovered the show yet why not introduce them by visiting the Disney Junior website, where you can find all sorts of activities and clips from the show.

Don’t forget that Henry Hugglemoster is based on the top selling children’s book “I’m a Happy Hugglewug” by Niamh Sharkey – one to take out on loan from your local library. The second series of Henry Hugglemonster was given the green light back in September 2013 and is soon due to reach our screens this autumn! Until then there’s plenty of Roarsome fun to be had with all the Henry Hugglemonster toys available here at Golden Bear Toys

It’s the Perfect Time for an Adventure

Posted on August 01, 2014 by Lynette - | 0 Comments

Adventure Time

The weather has been so kind to us here in the UK and the forecast for August is looking positive so far. Despite the odd shower here and there we are being told to expect decent temperatures, which only means one thing, we can continue to enjoy the great outdoors! Continuing on from last week we have a few more ideas on some fun trips out and about with your children.

Go and Watch the Birds

Bird watching can be great fun, especially if you have some fun tools to take with you like a pair of binoculars, notebook and pen to record your sightings, a list of local birds you might be able to spot and a camera. Throw all your essential bird watching kit in a backpack (like the new Woolly and Tig backpack made with waterproof material!), put on your wellies and see how many you can spot.

Watching Wildlife in Your Garden

Set up camp in your own back garden and learn about the wildlife that lives on your doorstep. The RSPB have a great guide to the different types of creatures that are commonly found at this time of year. Perhaps if you notice the wildlife is lacking you could spend some time creating a wildlife friendly zone to see if you can encourage more creatures. You can tie this in with building a den outdoors too and make the most of the garden over the weekend.

A Day at the Beach

The UK has some wonderful beaches to explore and enjoy a fun day trip out together as a family. While you’re at the beach you can help your child tick off a few of the National Trust’s 50 Things to do Before You’re 11 ¾ list. While at the beach you can jump over the waves, swim in the sea, explore the rock pools for amazing sea life and if you stay into the evening you’ll be able to watch the sunset over the horizon and watch the night sky for a while too.

Keeping the Kids Entertained on a Budget

Posted on July 25, 2014 by Lynette - | 0 Comments

Keeping Children Entertained on a Budget

A recent study by Travelodge stated that parents are preparing to spend thousands of pounds keeping their children entertained during the summer holidays. On average parents spend on £1,500 over the six week period, which is an extortionate amount. Not everyone has that kind of money to spend on entertainment but the good news is there are plenty of ways you can help your children fight off the boredom for much less. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Sort out the bedroom and the toy box. You are bound to stumble across several toys that your children have forgotten about. Get your kids involved, they will soon spot the loved toys that have been neglected for months!
  • Check what’s happening in your local area. There are plenty of free or low cost events happening all over the country that put on entertainment for the whole family.
  • Explore your neighbourhood. Pack a small picnic and some drinks and go on an adventure. Pick a direction and see what you can find.
  • Build a den in the garden or the house if it’s raining outside. Dens are great fun for all ages, especially if you’re able to leave it up long enough to sleep in!
  • Gather together your recycling and get creative, see what you can make from the bits and bobs that are headed to the recycling bin.
  • Build some animal habitats in the garden. Animals like hedgehogs and even bees need your help in finding somewhere suitable to make their home.
  • Get out the chalks and play hopscotch on the garden path, then let your children draw too, they’ll be entertained for hours.
  • Have a picnic in the garden with all your children’s toys. Bring out Woolly, Mr Tumble, Peppa Pig and all your child’s favourite characters to join in the fun. Invite one or two friends over too.
  • Organise a treasure hunt inside and outside in the garden. Make the clues, hide some treats and see who’s able to solve the hunt in the quickest time.
  • Dressing up is great fun, let your children rummage through your wardrobe and get creative with your clothing.

How do you plan on keeping your children entertained this summer? Tweet @GoldenBearToys with your ideas.
