Fun4All Checklist


A couple of weeks ago I did a checklist of the miniature board games and other toys produced by Basic Fun (you can find it HERE). This week I'm following it up with similar offerings produced by Fun-4-All, before they went bust in 2004. One day I will catch them all! ;)

  1. If they went belly up, is anyone else producing these items now?

  2. Hi, I'm glad you've made this list. I'm a collector of both Basic Fun and Fun-4-All myself. In fact your last image of the UNO card game is actually from my flickr :D You've posted a few I'm still looking for as well: Simon, Jacks, Rock Em Sock Em Robots, Wheelie, Pet Rock, Transformers collection. Some I can still find on ebay like Simon and some of the transformers, but they seem to be getting harder and harder to find. Best of luck!

    1. Oops I meant Big Wheel, not Wheelie.

    2. :D It was equal parts fun and depressing to put together. Fun because it's all so cool, depressing because there are so many I still need to collect! Hehe. I'm just a sucker for anything miniature - but at least it means the collection takes up less space...

    3. I am too! lol I love anything miniature :P I think it's mostly because of the cuteness factor, or maybe it's the ability to carry them around wherever you go, either way they are definitely a fun and enjoyable thing to collect. I also follow Museum of Working Miniatures on YouTube (which you link to for the Rebound key chain), his videos are how I found out about some of the more rare items. It's always exciting to meet other collectors online :D

    4. I love that channel! My bank balance doesn't though - I'd never come across some of the miniatures he had featured before. They went straight on the wishlist. ;) Definitely - it's so great to hear what other people have found!

Free Magazine Scans

Click the pictures below to find full cover guides to various teen magazines (primarily collated to make scale miniature magazine covers but I figure they'll also be useful for collectors and anyone into media history) and scans from my own magazine collection. I've also got a couple of kids' books I didn't want to part with - The Squirrel and Little Owl Book of Pets . The unwieldy size of my bookmark folders convinced me I needed a reference post for online magazine archives. Or, more accurately, free online magazine archives.

50 Free Welsh Language Resources

Unlike literacy and maths, Welsh really isn't a subject we'll be using everyday without a concerted effort to do so. Every morning we've been doing three Duolingo lessons with Marianna - challenging for me and repetition of basic words and concepts for her - and then watching a couple of Welsh language cartoons to listen to the rhythm of the words and so on. Here is a list of free Welsh language resources from around the web, ranging from GCSE revision guides to adult basics to children's cartoons uploaded to YouTube. Hopefully you'll be able to mix and match to suit your own needs over the next few weeks and months. (I'd normally direct people to places like Sain Wales to buy hard copy media, but they're closed for the duration and we should try to lighten the load on the postal service to essentials besides.) Apps . Handy rundown of Welsh language kids' apps from Montgomery Church in Wales School. Atebol . Welsh language story time on Yo

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou
