You might remember recently we were involved in hosting the #Zackandquack Twitter party along with 29 other bloggers and their families. Well at the same time as the Twitter party, we had our own Zack & Quack party at home! This was a fun craft party and the boys loved it.
You might have noticed an exciting new badge flashing away in my side bar over the last couple of days… I’m a Zack & Quack party host with UKMumsTV!
I am one of the party hosts and will be holding my own Zack & Quack party with the kids at home, as well as taking part in the Twitter Party. Follow me on Twitter to make sure you don’t miss anything!
You can see my boys here enjoying having a go with the Musical Pufferty Train and Clockhouse Playset. They love trains so these were the first two toys they were immediately attracted to.
The Musical Pufferty train plays the Tickety Toc theme tune when you press the funnel, and includes small figures of Tommy and Tallulah as well as Tooteroo the owl. My youngest (nearly 2) really enjoyed opening and closing all the doors and moving along the train, as well as hearing the theme tune which they all recognise from watching on TV.
The Clockhouse playset is immediately recognisable for anyone who has seen Tickety Toc, with the distinctive look of Tickety Town. It includes a pushalong pufferty the train with tracks integrated to the house, and Tommy and Tallulah figures.
There are also talking soft toys of Tommy and Tallulah, and smaller soft toys of Tommy and Tallulah.
Among the goodies in the goody bag (also including Tickety Toc sticker books and magazines which I’m sure will be available to buy soon along with the toys), my boys got to go home with one of these soft toys each. They chose to have Tommy and they have been enjoying playing with him, singing the Tickety Toc theme tune to themselves. These are a very handy size, not too big and not too small – Ideal if they want a small toy to take out in the car with them or anything like that.
As well as testing out the toys, there was more fun to be had. The boys took part in a craft session to make some Tickety Toc headgear for themselves (you can see my 5 year old modelling his top right in the collage below) and decorating some plates too with glue, feathers and all those crafty kind of bits and pieces. My 5 and 3 year old both love crafts.
There was also dancing with the Milk Shake presenters Olivia and Kemi, delicious milkshakes from the Hamley’s milkshake bar, giant Tommy and Tallulah characters walking around and the chance to explore all the toys of Hamley’s before opening time – which is always great! There were some celebrity families there to join in with the fun too!
The new Tickety Tock range is coming out this Saturday 27th and will be available from Argos, The Entertainer, Smyths, Amazon and all good toy shops/online. Tune-in to Tickety Toc at 9am every weekday on Channel Five’s Milkshake! and daily at 8am, 4pm and 4.15pm on Nick Jr!
