Win a DeWALT Toolbox from RS Components Ltd

With spring around the corner, my thoughts are turning to spring cleaning, decluttering and some DIY. There are no grand plans for extensive renovations, but there are a few bits and bobs which need fixing up, replacing or redecorating.  Every home needs a toolbox and a few basic tools, even I have a hammer and a small selection of screwdrivers, as well as some duct tape which is to my mind an essential every home should have. I’m no DIY expert, but I’m prepared to give some simple tasks a go, or patch things up until an expert can be brought in to do their bit. 

I’ve teamed up with RS Components Ltd who are based in Corby, Northants and are the world’s leading high-service distributor of electronics, automation and control components, tools and consumables. They stock a huge range of products suitable for both the home DIYer and for trade, all at very reasonable prices. 

They have a massive selection of toolboxes, starting from £3.59, all the way up to £325 and with brand names including Bahco, Bott, DeWALT, Facom, Raaco, RS Pro, Stanley and Terry.

I’ve picked out a really good all rounder to giveaway, I’ve chosen the DeWALT TStak Combo II Plus IV Plastic Tool Box which RS Components Ltd are currently selling for £68.60. This toolbox is a tough, durable tool case made from polypropylene plastic. Its solid metal hinges and heavy-duty metal latches make it robust. It has a strong metal handle and two compartments to separate smaller and larger accessories for greater organisation.Win a DeWALT Toolbox from RS Components Ltd

It’s a cracking bit of kit and perfect to get your tools in order and organised in time for a bit of spring DIY. What are you waiting for?

Win a Limited Edition Dennis the Menace Screen Print worth £70

Dennis the Menace has been delighting school children in The Beano since 1951. Dennis and his faithful companion – an Abyssinian wire-haired tripe hound called Gnasher have got up to all kinds of mischief and mayhem over the years. 

Dennis the Menace is an English icon, what Asterix is to France. Dennis the Menace embodies the naughty schoolboy in all of us. You see a red and black striped jumper and the first thing you think of is Dennis and Gnasher.

I remember sitting in the back of the car with my brother driving down to Cornwall, one of us with The Beano, the other with The Dandy and then swapping half way there. These iconic comics from DC Thomson really were part of the fabric of our childhood.

What better birthday or Christmas gift for the discerning Beano fan than this beautiful limited edition Dennis the Menace screen print from The Comic Art Website. The Comic Art Website is owned and run by John Patrick Reynolds, a man who fell in love with comics as a child and then grew up to be an acclaimed screen printer.

Dennis the Menace

John Patrick Reynolds creates fully licences handmade silkscreen prints of classic comics from around the world including DC Thomson favourites including The Beano, The Dandy, as well as Minnie the Minx, The Victor, Commando, Asterix and Popeye. His work has been featured on the BBC, in the Observer and in the Daily Express, amongst others.

The Comic Art Website have very kindly given me a framed print to give away to one lucky winner. The “Dennis the Menace Runs” print is a handmade, limited edition screen print on mould-made, cotton paper and is signed and numbered out of 200 in pencil by the printer, John Patrick Reynolds. 

This standard size print (25cm x 19cm) and comes in a stylish black frame. This limited edition Dennis the Menace run print costs £70 and is available from the website. Could you be lucky enough to win this glorious gift for the Dennis the Menace fan in your life? (Or keep it for yourself, I’d be very tempted to).

Win a Double Flip Fun & Games Mat worth £28

One of the best way children learn is through messy play. Messy play is also lots of fun, which is why kids enjoy it so much and are keen to engage with messy learning. Regrettably and inevitably this means that sometimes you can discover crayon and felt tip graffiti on the walls and carpets. No matter how carefully you think you’ve supervised them.

We love the Fun & Games Mat from Double Flip which is a great way to encourage a bit of creative play without having to worry too much about your walls. It’s perfect for taking out and about to the park for a picnic, or for having some rainy day fun at home. It’s been featured in the Guardian Christmas Gift list and the Saturday Telegraph Magazine. The mat has been designed, printed and hand made in Britain.  The Fun & Games Mat makes a great gift – and is practical, educational and above all fun. Double Flip Fun & Games MatSuitable for children aged 3 to 10 years, the Double Flip Fun & Games Mat is reversible and printed with fun activities on both sides. The mat encourages creativity, numeracy and literacy and is ideal for entertaining up to five children at once!

The pack includes a large reversible mat (120 x 100cm), ten double washable felt tip pens, a box of 5 dice, 6 counters and a fabric carry bag.

Kids will have hours of fun playing and drawing on this mat with the washable felt tip pens.  When they’ve finished, pop the mat in the washing machine on a cold wash, hang out to dry and play again!

Double Flip Fun & Games Mat

The Double Flip Fun & Games Mat includes a range of activities such as creative drawing, dot-to-dot, noughts and crosses, colour by numbers, letter writing practice, snakes and ladders and other dice games for older children. They won’t even realise they are learning while they play!

The Double Flip Fun & Games mat is available to buy online from the Double Flip website for £28. If you sign up to the Double Flip newsletter (at the bottom of their homepage) you can get 10% off your order!

Giveaway & Review: Snowy Leopard Microwaveable Hottie

Of all the rooms in the house, my son’s bedroom is probably the coldest, which is great in the heat of the summer, but not so good during the cold winter months. To counter this we bundle him up in cosy pyjamas, tuck him up under an extra blanket and we have a little heater in his room to give it a boost when the temperature drops. One of the things he likes the most is having a microwaveable hottie to hug in bed. 

We were sent a Snowy Leopard Microwaveable Hottie from Aroma Home to put to the test. Aroma Home have been the market leader for children’s microwaveable hotties since they started producing and designing them back in 2000. They have an adorable collection of lavender scented characters which include a snuggly husky, an owl, a penguin, a reindeer and this snowy leopard.

Snowy Leopard Microwaveable Hottie

Each snuggable hottie has a removable tummy which is gently scented with lavender that can be warmed up separately in a microwave. To access the microwavable pouch, there is a hidden strip of velcro underneath the hottie which you open to remove the pouch. Microwave this for up to one minute and then put it back inside the hottie ready for cuddling.

I always think microwavable hotties are a great alternative to hot water bottles, I have horrors of hot water leaking out and burning the small boy, microwavable hotties seem much safer and are great for children. The lavender fragrance is also good for helping him to relax and drift off to sleep.

Snowy Leopard Microwaveable Hottie

I really like the Aroma Home Snowy Leopard Microwaveable Hottie. I think the removable microwavable pouch is excellent and much better than having to microwave a whole bear (which we had been doing previously, not great if you’ve spilt beans in the microwave and you’ve forgotten to clean it up).

The Snowy Leopard is incredibly snuggly and very lovely to cuddle. He is made from 100% polyester and he shouldn’t be microwaved. The small boy loved cuddling him in bed at night, he obviously found his soft snuggliness and lavender fragrance very soothing.

I do like sending the boy to bed knowing he’s got something warm to cuddle up with on the cold winter nights. These Snuggable Hotties cost £12.99 and are available directly from the Aroma Home website, or from a range of other retailers.
