Dizzy Rhino Party in a Box

Dizzy Rhino

A couple of weeks ago I had the awesome news that I'd won a party in a box from Dizzy Rhino. Established in late 2018, Dizzy Rhino aim to take the hassle out of kids' entertainment - you can order a small activity kit from £17.50 right through to a whole party in a box for six children aged 7+ for £135.

Marianna's birthday was already done and dusted by this point, but then I had the idea of getting the prize delivered for my mum's birthday on February 14th. We usually all go around and visit for tea, cake, and takeaway, and I figured it would be a good laugh for the adults as well as keeping Marianna occupied.

Dizzy Rhino Party in a Box

Each box contains three large activity boxes, party invites, thank you cards, party bags, wooden bunting, and a super cute memory frame with little wooden stars and top hatted rhinos for guests to write on. There are currently six different themed boxes to choose from - including Halloween, Pamper Me, and Unicorn - or you can build your own from the range of available activity kits.

Dizzy Rhino Packaging

I was particularly impressed by the dearth of plastic packaging. It seems like everything comes with a ton of bubble wrap these days which is great protection, but hardly environmentally friendly. The biodegradable packaging Dizzy Rhino use can be disposed of easily, or reused for hamper making, crafts, etc.

Anway, back to the contents... Our three activity boxes were 'fizzy bath bombs', 'super suds soap kit', and the 'tick-tock clock kit'. We decided to leave the soap for another day as it needed the most extra work (i.e. melting the soap), so first up was the bath bomb making. I didn't take a photo because, to be honest, it was kind of embarrassing the hash four adults managed to make of it!

The instructions advised less is more to create pretty pastel shades. Ours, well, was like a fizzed up explosion of green sludge. What I can say was that the whole process was hilarious, and shows you could easily use the kits for any kind of party, from a kids' sleepover right through to hen party shenanigans.

Dizzy Rhino Tick Tock Clock Activity Kit

After dinner we busted out the clock making activity kit. My mum went for a striking colour wheel, Marianna made a beautiful (in her own words) flower, and I painted a kind of scary looking eye. After the painting we all wrote on a piece for the memory frame and gave it to mum as a memento of the day.

As a concept I think the boxes are really well done. I love that it provides entertainment, but also keepsakes for everyone attending so, rather than the usual sweets and stickers, they have something that gives them a sense of achievement to remind them of the party. The kit instructions are easy to follow, and if you don't manage to get through everything in the box it's stuff you can use again.

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

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.
