Spin Master Candylocks Review

Candylocks Dolls

Spin Master's latest doll offering is Candylocks, a diminutive plastic doll with 15 inches of scented, colourful hair. The dolls are packaged like candyfloss, with the dolls blind boxed by being wrapped in their own hair. Scroll on down for a full guide to all the available dolls! For a quick review and my thoughts on the line, stay where you are...

Spin Master Candylocks Basic Doll

I think the concept is super cute and I love the packaging. But. I must admit to having a few concerns in terms of safety and the doll's ability to hold up to play. I bought one for Marianna from The Entertainer at 5pm on Thursday. By 5pm Friday the hair was looking bedraggled and handfuls of the cotton wadding material used had shed around the house.

The dolls are advertised as 5+, with a warning that they aren't suitable for under 3s, but at that age hair play has yet to become especially delicate - even when they're doing their best to be gentle! Marianna was trying out braids, twisting the hair, wrapping the accessories around it, etc, etc, but after a single day you can see the comparison between our doll and the promo photograph from Amazon:

No toy lasts forever, but I have higher expectations of something priced at £10 than I do something priced at £2.99. The ease with which the hair breaks apart and sheds is kind of worrying. At 5 your kid probably isn't going to be trying to eat it, but the same can't be said of younger kids and pets in the household - especially when it's something that looks, smells and feels like candyfloss. :/

So, yeah. I wish I could give this line a better review, but the age suggestion either needs pushing up or the hair needs to be made more robust. I emailed over my concerns as feedback anyway, so at least it can be constructive criticism.

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
