Slime Factory

So Slime Factory I knew as soon as I saw this set that I would have a couple of little reviewers that would jump at the chance of playing with slime! We have the 3-pack of slime and the colours inside are yellow, green and pink. There are just 3 simple instructions on the back of the pack to follow and it says it is mess free. Each pot has a lid and inside each pot is a silver packet; inside the packet is small bag of coloured powder, a small bag of glitter or confetti and a surprise figurine. All you have to do is to empty the bag of powder and the bag of glitter in to the empty pot and then fill with water to the marked line. Read on...

 Barry Loser Football

Barry Loser is the Best at Football, Not! Let's face it - Barry Loser is unlikely to ever be the best at anything! Except, of course, at being the star of brilliantly hilarious books that children will lap up. In his tenth escapade, we find everyone at Barry’s school has gone football crazy as the World Cup is coming along, but poor Barry is, simply, rubbish at football. So he decides to become a coach...and, never one to pass up a challenge, soon he's committed his team to playing Tarquin and friends. And that's just the start of another hilarious series of adventures. The author has a quite exceptional gift for knowing just what will appeal to children and he brings something fresh and new to every story. Read on...
