What''s that smell ? #Review

What's That Smell? is the hilarious new game from WowWee where following your nose is the path to success. Tipped to be one of the the hottest games of the year (and already a YouTube favourite), What's That Smell? is the new scratch & sniff party game that totally stinks!


What's That Smell? is the first ever hilarious fragrant-guessing party game that opens up a world of interesting whiffs. Guess the scent on the card correctly to win or you could be suffering the reeking ramifications of one of the deadly Stank Cards!

Included in each box are over 50 smell cards from nice to downright nasty and I really do mean nasty, there can be anything from dirty socks to vomit you can only pray to get the nice scents.

 The new "scent-sational" party game is designed to put your sense of smell to the test against friends and family, roommates and work besties - challenging those brave enough to correctly guess scents ranging from roses to rotting garbage...and worse.

The best part of the game is the winner gets to pick a player of their choice to suffer the Whiff of Shame: three big whiffs of one of the four outrageously pungent Stank Cards: Extra Old Toe Cheese, Diaper Blowout, Hot Chunky Vomit and Smothered in B.O.! These cards really are the most smelliest the may have some of you heaving and your friends laughing.

For added fun, players can download the free iOS/Android What's That Smell? companion app to track the number of players and sniffing time, earn extra bonus points by comparing guesses with other people who have played the game and record their priceless ‘Whiff Of Shame’ reactions. The app also provides Stank Card filters and a "don't-miss-a-revolting-second" slow-mo effect to help capture every second of these memorable moments. 

Available in the UK now, What's That Smell? includes 48 Mystery Whiff Cards, four Stank Cards and scent-barrier bags, six cardholders, a sheet of Whiff Strips, scorepad and instructions for 2-6 players ages
14+, £24.99rrp.

Family time is a big deal in our hour, being a busy mum of 5 leaves me very little time to spend with the children which is something I feel very guilty about most of the time and its not very often we get together and sit down all as a family unless its a special occasion. Callums now 15 and Michaela almost 12 they are the eldest two children and growing very fast, they spend most of their time in their rooms or out with friends. When I got asked if we would like the opportunity to review What's that smell from WowWee I jumped at the chance as it was a chance for us to get together as a family again and play something new together. We all had such a good laugh on the weekend playing What's that smell ? I honestly thought I would win this game having smelt some many nice and nasty smells through out my life after all us parents smell allsorts don't we. Anyway I have to say I didn't win I think my nose tricked me on a good few of the cards, you can sniff as long as you like until the timer runs out but you wont always get the right answer haha you mind plays tricks on you just as your sense of smell can. All of the children at Mums diary loved this game I have to say its in our top 10 this year and will be playing it over the Christmas holidays and New Year. I highly recommend What's that smell ? for a great gift this Christmas, your definitely have your party guest gagging. 

Disclosure: We was sent What's$ that smell ? for free for the purpose of this review, all opinions are 100 % honest and our own.

Happy Halloween


Here at mums diary we has a entertaining evening of carving Pumpkins, it was the messiest thing the children have ever been aloud to do so far.
Rhys being 2 years old and hating funny textures was not keen on touching or carving his Pumpkin so mommy and daddy ended up doing more.
On the other hand Katelyn, Michaela and Davina all enjoyed pulling the guts out of their Pumpkins well that's what they called them haha !

Tonight consists of Trick Treating then a little party afterwards just a little something the children love doing every year but I've noticed their all getting older and the two bigger children have grown out of Tick Treating and dressing up where have my babies gone.

Have a Happy Halloween everyone and don't eat to much candy !!

Make blissful bath time count this half-term with Venus #Review


With half-term just around the corner, it can often be a stressful time for busy mums and dads trying to keep our little ones busy and entertained all the time. 
What us parents find ourselves doing is neglecting our selves or having 5 minutes peace to relax or even take the time to have a moment to our selves. 
I know being a busy mum of 5  and my youngest being 2 years old I struggle to get any time to myself even if its a quick cup of tea after the early morning school run.
I find the only time I get alone is my bath time when all the children are tucked up in bed, I call it mommy's time where I can lock myself away in the bath room with a nice glass of wine and lots of bubble to relax and unwind in from the busy day I have had. 
But this time my bath time has been extra special and total bliss as I have been testing out one of the best selling razors Venus an all in one beauty tool, Venus and Olay combines Venus 5-blade technology, which gently exfoliates for surface skin renewal whilst the built in flexible shave gel bars add  Olay moisturiser.
I have to say I'm absolutely in love with my new Venus and so is my eldest daughter who's new to shaving, she had her own one to use and also loved how much of a comfortable shave it is. Venus is one of my top razors I find it gently glides across your skin with out being worried your going to cut your self like some razors I have used, you can shave as quickly as you like it just glides gently leaving your legs glowing.
Venus and Olay leaves your legs feeling smooth and soft with out any discomfort or hairs left behind its just the perfect razor, it also has changeable heads which you can buy to replace your razor with a new one but this pack comes with one set of blades which lasts for quite awhile.

Treat yourself and make sure pamper time takes less time, when half-term madness arrives. 

Venus and Olay are available in Boots and Superdrug.

Schleich Eldrador Creatures #Review

Schleich are releasing some super cool high quality products as part of its Eldrador Creatures brand and were so excited to be reviewing Kraken one of their real super fighters who lives in water.
The brand- new monsters and beings from Eldrador Creatures lave,ice,water and stone worlds off plenty of action-packed fun.
There are 12 new and very dangerous-looking figurines seeking to win the super weapon back from the evil forces.

Schleich Monster Kraken 

The Kraken is a real super fighter - he has several tricks up his sleeve to hold back his opponents. With his strong tentacles, he can take on several opponents at once, he can squirt jet-black into their faces blinding them, and using his harpoon, he can keep uninvited guests at bay - even those from the air !
But anyone who thinks that his only as quick as lighting under water is most definitely wrong. The Kraken can also fight his opponents on land! But how does he do this? He can not only move extremely fast on his tentacles, but is also super quiet - as if on tiptoes - and hardly leaves a trace. No one is safe from him anywhere...His only weakness is that the monster kraken needs water after an hour at least, otherwise he is at risk of drying out.

Our thoughts- Callum is now aged 15 but your never to old to be interested in figurines, he loved the new Monster Kraken as he thought he looked really cool with his movable areas and weapon you can removed and swap with another.
Callum has very good eyes for detail and he said he the high quality paintwork is a amazing it makes each figurine look like its for the older generation as in the more older children and adults. Even though Callum is 15 and the Eldrador Creatures are for ages 5 and above that has not prevented him from wanting to collect more from the Eldrador Creatures range, you could even add play sets to add to the fun. Callum showed his younger brother Rhys who is soon to be 2, they both loved it and had so much fun sharing it, Rhys would run around the house pretending to attack objects around him. I can honestly say both boys have taken pretty well to our new Monster Kraken from Schleich and are looking forward to adding many more to their collection this Christmas. At an affordable price of £13.99 i couldn't really moan as they really are good quality figurines for the money and perfect for children who love to collect toy too.

You can find all the Eldrador Creature figurines and more at schleich
