Casdons Little Shoppers ~ Pick & Mix Toy Sweet Shop #Review

 Casdons Little Shoppers 
Pick & Mix Toy Sweet Shop


My little ones love role play and pretending that they are doing real life jobs – just like the grown-ups! This Pick & Mix Sweet Shop has been specially designed to provide hours of fun and stimulation so your little shopkeeper will really feel part of your world while developing essential life skills and having fun at the same time. We've been having a play with one this week and have to say, what's not to like about playing shopkeepers with real sweets. Although it's aimed at children aged between 3 and 8, all three of my children aged from 5 to 12 have loved taking their turns being shopkeepers and customers.


The toy itself is really easy to put together as everything you need to play is there in the box. You get the shop, till, weighing scales, sweet pots and lots of sweets to sell too. Everything just clips together so there's no need for any grown up help, it's nice and simple.

My three have had lots of fun playing with this. It's the sort of toy that really brings out their imagination. Role playing is always great fun but when real sweets are involved it's even better. They loved the fact that they could buy, sell and eat real sweets.


The Pick & Mix Toy Sweet Shop is just one of the toys in the Casdon Little Shoppers Range,  there's another 12 exciting playsets to choose from too.

When I asked my three what they loved best about this toy, they all said in agreement  'The Sweets' which came as no surprise to me. If I was their age, I would have said the same.

The Casdon Pick & Mix Toy Sweet Shop gets a huge thumbs up from us.

Need a Bacon Butty Guide this Fathers Day?

Need a Bacon Butty Guide this Fathers Day? 


Sunday is Father’s Day so Roberts Bakery have decided to bring out Dad’s soft and fluffy side. They've 'The Father’s Day Bacon Butty Challenge!' We've been joining in here on the run up to the big day but you can also join in the fun over on their Facebook page.

We took one delivery of Soft and Fluffy bread, a serving tray, tea bags and a Tesco gift card and turned it into the perfect yet simple, Fathers Day breakfast fit for a king.


Daddy likes the simple things in life so his Bacon Butty will consist of Smoked Bacon and HP sauce in between two pieces of buttered Soft and Fluffy Roberts Bakery white bread.

We've not made our sandwich yet as we're waiting to surprise him on his big day but we already know that it's going to be perfect and he's going to love it.

Our Bacon Butty may be a bit boring but it's perfect to us, just the way it is. As they say, 'If It isn't broken, don't fix it!' You can't beat a classic bacon butty with lashing of HP sauce.

Whatever you're serving up for breakfast this Fathers Day, we wish you a good one.
