Japanese Ramen Bowl Set Review

(ad- gifted - Words and Pictures are my own) 

If you love eating new types of food then Sous Chef is probably the place to go shopping. Their website is all about different cuisines and they have lots of products from ingredients to cooking equipment to tablewear. 

I was asked if I would like to review something from the website so I chose to review the lovely Ramen Sets that they have. 

I was sent the Japanese Ramen bowl set, which comes with 2 ladles, 2 bowls, a recipe book and a bag.



I really loved the look of them on the website and was just as pleased with them when they arrived. 

The bowls are a gorgeous colour of blue and have such a nice marble pattern to them. They are super shiny too and just look so beautiful. They are such a good depth and size and they look like they will hold a decent amount of food.

They are really high quality and the shape of the bowl is made especially to hold noodles or ramen. They are brought here all the way from Japan so with these you know you are getting the real deal!

In the pictures I took below you can see the high quality of the bowls and the decent sizing of them. 





The set also comes with 2 ladles which are perfect for Ramen dishes. They are made from natural Bamboo and are also such a lovely colour of wood. They both have really long handles and the wood is so smooth to hold in your hand. They compliment the bowls really nicely and the size of them means you would be getting a decent mouthful of delicious Ramen.


I have never tried Ramen before. But this kit comes with a wonderful recipe book which means that I can now make my own. It tells you how to follow the recipes and also tells you all about the different types of Ramen.

The steps to the recipes look really easy to follow and they all also sound really tasty. It includes 4 different recipes and one is perfect for vegetarians and vegans.

Ramen sounds perfect for the winter months and I can't wait to get making some.


The last thing to tell you about this set, is that the dishes are dishwasher safe. So if your lucky enough to own a dishwasher (which I am not) then your going to be able to pop them in that to be washed.

The sets are £39.50 to buy and I can certainly say with the quality of them, they are well worth the money.

Head to the Sous Chef website now to pick up a set!

Have you ever made Ramen? Would you concider this set?

Learning Resources 5 in 1 Outdoor Measure Mate - Review

(ad gifted)
Spending time outdoors is always a great thing to do, what ever the weather. Even if it is cold it is well worth going out to get some fresh air. Also outdoors can be very education with lots to learn about.

Learning Resources is all about learning and so they have invented a toy that is perfect for outdoor play and learning at the same time. 


It is called the Measure Mate and is all about discovering measurements, mostly for things out doors.


So the measure mate comes in 7 pieces but is a 5 in one toy to help measure the things you find outdoors. It comes with 5 different tools which include a vertical measure, callipers, a trundle wheel, spirit level and measuring stick. 

Lily has never done any measuring before so she was really excited to give it a go.

But firstly, you need to get your measure mate ready. It is super easy to fix together so then you can start to use it. Then when that is done, you can decorate it as it comes with a huge sheet of colourful stickers. The stickers are also weather proof so they don't peel off when wet which is an added bonus.

So Lily stuck on her stickers and we was ready to head out. 

We decided to go to the local park where there are lots of outdoor measuring opportunities to be had. 


The first thing Lily decided to get to grips with was using the trundle wheel. The trundle wheel measures distance. You push it along the floor and each time it clicks you start to count. Each click = 1 metre and so you can measure how many meters you can walk.

Lily at times found it easy to manage and at times struggled to control it, but I think mostly that is because she is a dot for her age and she doesn't always put the most effort into things.

We counted together each click, i'm not sure Lily quite understood that we was counting distance in metres but she did enjoy pushing it along while counting. 


The cute thing about the wheel is that it is patterned with little marks so then if you push it through mud it will make little marks left behind. Unfortunetly the ground was a little cold and hard to leave marks when we out. But I think a great time to use it will be in the snow and I look forward to trying it out again then.

After we did this we then pulled it all apart to use the other tools. It comes apart really easily and also goes back together really easily, so changing it to use it for what we needed was not a problem.

We then tried it as a spirit level. We put it on a bench to see if it was straight. But we live up north, which is full of hills and so the bench was definitely not sitting straight. I explained to Lily how the little ball needed to sit in the middle to work out if the bench was level or not.


We then decided to use this as a measuring stick. I told Lily to go and find things she could measure and so she found a stick. Lily isn't fully clued up with measurements yet (takes after her mummy) but she understood that you had to put the measuring stick next to the tree stick to be able to measure it. We also decided we would measure how thick the tree was. This tool was brilliant for this and the Calliper jaws helped place the tree trunk in line so we could measure it easier.


The measure mate can also be used to measure the holes inside tree's and the Calliper jaws are the best thing to use to do with with.

Lily really enjoyed that she was getting to do something so grown up and instead of wanting to run straight off to the play ground she was engrossed in this activity.

Plus if you wanted to extend the activity more the set comes with a guide that gives more ideas of how each tool can be used.

Overall the Measure Mate is a really decent toy that has a huge learning aspect to it. I find that children love to learn and so this toy makes learning really fun.

And of corse with it being made by Learning Resources, it is super quality and super colourful.


After you have finished using your measure mate outdoors you can then bring it in and give it a easy quick clean by simply wiping it down. Learning Resource have also thought about how to store this item and it comes with a netted bag that you can place everything inside and then hang up. Perfect!


This toy is recommended for children aged 4 to 8 and retails at £32.00, it can be bought from the Learning Resources Website

Emotion Pets - Toffee The Pony Review

(ad- Gifted)

Is your child asking for a pony, but it is just not feasible. Maybe they will settle for the next best thing.

Toffee The Pony! 


It is the newest companion for kids and will be just like having a real pet (just without the mess)

Lily was sent one to review and here is what we thought about it.


Firstly as it sits in its box, straight away it looks impressive. Lily couldn't wait to get it out of the box and play with her new pet.

It was super easy to get out, simply chop the straps holding it into the box and toffee is free.

Toffee also comes with a brush and a carrot which are held in place with plastic. So also easy to remove.

Toffee doesn't come with batteries so you will need 4 AA batteries and a screwdriver to access the battery area.

As soon as the batteries are in, it is ready to play.

Lily loved how cute and loveable it was and straight away give it a big cuddle. Toffee's legs are soft and plush, and so can be made to lay down and sit down, but Toffee can not stand up.

The body is quite soft but you can feel a harder centre where the battery pack is, plus you can also feel the mechanism inside the head. But this does not take away from how soft the toy is at all.

 

Toffee's fur is really lovely and soft to stroke. It is a beautiful colour of brown and has white tuffs around its hooves. It also has a lovely soft mane. 

The mane is the perfect opportunity to use the brush and brush its lovely hair.

Toffee is super interactive and loves the attention. It blinks and moves its ears as it waits to be cuddled and reacts if you give it a tickle or a stroke. He makes wonderful horse noises that sound like a real horse. The noises are quite loud though and Lily was quite surprised at how loud to begin with.



Toffee also gets scared from time to time and if it hears a loud noise then it will close its eyes and its ears will go back. But if you then stroke Toffee then it will soon be happy again. 

As well as being brushed, Toffee loves its food and so you can feed it a carrot. Lily was so impressed with what Toffee does when you offer it a carrot. Its mouth makes eating movements and it sounds like it is actually munching on the carrot. Such a cute Feature!


Over all Lily loves her new pet and is super happy to have a new pet to take care of. 

The pony is recommended for children aged 2+ and retails at £44 and be bought from toy stores such as Argos

Would your little one love to have their very own Interactive Pony?

Lily is a huge fan of letters and words at the moment as she is learning them in school so this toy would be perfect for children around 4-5 who are currently learning their letters. Not only is this toy fun, its super colourful and child friendly. I think any toy that promotes learning and also makes a fun gift is the perfect choice.
