Yes, you heard right… we decided to do something funny for money and raise some all important money for Comic Relief by singing a song in a bath of jelly! So, supported by Izzziwizzi Kids Playfest and Gelli Baff (who kindly supplied the jelly) we got ourselves covered in jelly and had GREAT FUN!!!
Didn’t sponsor us? Don’t panic, there is still time!!! Head on over to our Red Nose page to support us and help the Comic Relief Red Nose Day cause!
We were thrilled to be asked to take a look at a new book from Maverick Books for Izziwizzikids.co.uk. The Jelly that Wouldn’t Wobble by Angela Mitchell is a paperback book which is beautifully illustrated by Sarah Horne. Watch our Vlog review to see just what me and the boys thought…
Every week for nearly 2 years now i have been busily involved with Izziwizzi Kids… and it was Izziwizzi who actually stated me on my Vlogging journey! Focussing on children’s play, it has been great to chat with like minded people on both twitter and facebook about different toys, brands, craft activites and most importantly play ideas! We have also been lucky enough to review a number of toys and products for Izziwizzi – just take a look at my Izziwizzi page!
So when Al from Izziwizzi asked me if she could guest post… my answer was a HUGE YES! So here goes…
I have been I feel so happy to know Kate from What Me and The Boy’s Say blog and was delighted when she offered for me to post on her blog. Kate has brought lots of fun to Play Fest over the last 2 years and she loves to keep me on my toes and makes me do things properly. She always follows up with ‘that’s the teacher in me’
For those of you not familiar with Izziwizzi Kids or Play Fest I am Al Boxall-Gordon of the IzziwizziKids Play Fest. I’m a mum of three children aged 8, 6 and 4 and host the Play Fest which is a FREE weekly event on Twitter and Facebook. As part of building this up over the last two years I have also established a social media marketing business Buzz Internet Marketing supporting brands and businesses to use social media effectively to get closer to their customers. Play Fest is an opportunity for all families to get involved and have a say about something topical in the field of toys, games and play. We get brands, retailers, bloggers…you name it involved. We partner up with lots of fabulous brands and retailers to giveaway lots of goodies and discounts.
Kate regularly gets involved in Play Fest. She even appears in the Play Fest video that we made back in summer 2011 sharing what it means to get involved. It makes me really pleased that Kate started out her journey with reviews with Izziwizzi Kids and has grown from strength to strength including working with Toys R Us. Kate has also played a pivotal role in shaping Play Fest and making it a brilliant place to be for families.
I’d really love to get you involved in Play Fest with Kate. So here’s what you need to get involved. Izziwizzi would like you to come and join Kate and get involved in Play Fest. It’s FREE! It’s every Thursday evening on Facebook and every Tuesday evening on Twitter. You can find more details by following Izziwizzi on Twitter or liking the Izziwizzi Kids Facebook Fan Page.
