Disney Star Darlings

Jakks Pacific Star Darlings

This line totally passed me by - but I wish it hadn't because the dolls are adorable! Based on Disney's Star Darlings books and cartoons, Jakks Pacific launched these tie-in dolls in November 2015. They stood around 11 inches high, had rooted hair and inset eyes, and were fully articulated bar the ankles.

Unfortunately the line suffered from oversaturation, with release after release following quick on the heels of each other but with very little to distinguish them. Poor sales lead to the line being discontinued in 2017.

Jakks Pacific Star Glow Star Darlings Dolls

★ Libby. (Box Front / Back)
★ Sage. (Box Front / Back) - see review at ToyBoxPhilosopher.
★ Scarlet. (Box Front / Back)
★ Vega. (Box Front / Back)

The first wave of dolls came in a holographic box, complete with a light up stand and pieces to make a wish necklace. Initially available through the Disney Store, they retailed for $30 each. In the UK they first hit stores in Spring 2016, priced at £20.95 each. They were packaged in the international variant packaging which used name stickers to differentiate the dolls, rather than printed pictures.

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.)

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
