Review: Peppa Pig First Discovery Tablet

It lives!

Back in January I won two KD Toy tablets from The Reading Residence blog: the Palace Pets Magic Screen Tablet and the Peppa Pig First Discovery Tablet, both recommended for ages 2 and up. Now, it's no secret that Peppa Pig and I are far from bosom buddies, but the First Discovery tablet was so impressive I decided to overlook the fact.

The tablet retails between £24.99 (Argos) and £18.99 (BBCShop - currently on offer).

Although only 7 and half months, Marianna still loves anything that makes noise. I liked the idea of that noise being something useful, like colours, numbers and sounds. The touch sensitive buttons are a bit hit and miss as she can't really 'press' them as such yet, but slapping the tablet a few times will invariably make something happen.

Like this.

I like that repeated pressing changes the response. For example, press the triangle once and you get 'the triangle, *ding*', press it again and you get, 'the triangle is red'. Or press the 2 and you get 'the number two' or 'the circle'. The numbers are Marianna's favourite as we go through 1 to 10 a lot with her, and she recognises the sounds.

As she gets older the tablet will remain relevant through its quiz function. It will ask you to find something, and you then need to press the right button. The other thing I like about this tablet is that, if the child loses interest, it will prompt a few times - 'press a key' - and then, realising it's been forsaken, will turn itself off. Saving its own battery life. If only all kids' toys would do the same!


  1. I like the look of this and something I will keep in mind for Piglet next year, I love that it will go into power saving mode rather than keep playing sounds over and over #ToyTuesday

    1. It's definitely a huge plus - some of Marianna's toys drive me insane with the beeping from under the sofa, or wherever she's stashed them so I can't find them! :)

  2. This looks great fun for little ones, i'm sure Viggo would love it. Thanks for linking up to #ToyTuesday

Guide to Sindy Houses

As far as 1/6 scale doll houses go, Sindy's Super Home is fairly ubiquitous. It's a good size, it isn't made out of pink plastic, and you can pick one up on eBay for under £50. But the Super Home wasn't Sindy's only foray into property ownership. In fact she had numerous different houses, caravans, stables, and other buildings... 1970 Sindy's Town House Though this was advertised in the 1970 brochure, it doesn't seem to have ever made it into production. 1973 Sindy's House This one apparently made it into limited production, but was flimsy and was soon replaced. According to the Sindy Museum , it had four rooms, decorated as a bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and lounge. You can see part of the house used for photos in the 1974 catalogue . 1974 Sindy's House Existing examples appear to have been competition wins, so it is unlikely this house was ever on general sale. You can read more about it HERE . 1975

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
