Daisy was really excited last week when a parcel from interplay arrived for her, they had sent her a Fuzzikins Craft Cozy Cats to review, regular readers and followers of ours on Instagram will know that both Daisy and I like to get creative so this lovely set was perfect for a Sunday afternoon craft session.
The kit comes with three different sized cats who are so soft to the touch, some felt pens to colour their fur and some sleeping bags, stickers and accessories to make them nice and cosy. The inside of the box can be used for play and also a place to practise your designs before you colour the cats in.
One thing I will mention is that Daisy did get very messy colouring in the cats but the felt tips are washable so I wasn’t overly concerned, I also had to help constructing the sleeping bags as it was a slightly too intricate for Daisy’s little hands.
Once the cats were all colourful Daisy had fun putting them all to bed in their sleeping bags that she had decorated with the fish shaped stickers and she also put on their little sleeping masks, I have no doubts that those cats were as cosy as can be once Daisy had finished with them.
Fuzzikins Craft Cozy Cats are suitable for ages 4+ and cost £12.99 from Amazon.

I love Easter, we get a four day weekend, FrugalMrW is off work, Daisy is off nursery and the house has chocolate a plenty.
We woke to a beautiful blue sky on Good Friday so we decided to make the most of it and we took a trip to a local nature reserve, Daisy took her scooter and Jacob swapped between toddling and his Smart Trike.
We headed home for lunch then went to visit my big girl Jess and our grandson Olly to exchange Easter gifts.
I had spotted that Smyths Toy Store was holding an Easter event for children with free goody bags and an Easter egg hunt, so we got up on Saturday morning and headed up to the store in the next town across from us, I’m so glad we arrived early as it was so busy.
In the afternoon we stopped by our local town and much to Daisy’s delight we bumped into Elsa and Anna from Disney’s Frozen.
We woke to dull but dry weather on Sunday morning, the weather forecast rain for the afternoon so after doing a little Easter crafting we decided on the spur of the moment to take a drive to a local beach.
When we arrived at the beach the tide was already in so although we didn’t get to walk on the sand we had a windy walk along the coastal path and a picnic in the car overlooking the ocean.
We arrived home in time for the rain and spent the afternoon watching movies and eating Easter eggs.
It’s been a fantastic weekend and we’ve squeezed as much fun into it as we could, Daisy is back at nursery for a few days before she finally finishes for half term then the fun begins all over again.
What did you do over the Easter weekend ? leave me a comment below I love hearing from you.
Today was wet and gloomy so Daisy and I had some fun indoors, we decided to get messy and create some works of art for the kitchen wall.
We used the Bits & Basics range of finger paints from The Early Learning Centre, the paintbrush is also from The Early Learning Centre, despite how it looks in the picture it’s quite chunky and easy for little hands to hold, we also used a cork to do some printing.
For a toddler there’s nothing better than messy play, they get so much sensory enjoyment from it.
Did you have fun this Friday ? What sort of messy play do your little ones love ? Leave me a comment I love hearing from you.
