BALLOONEE-MAKE YOUR OWN BALLONS 

Special occasions play a huge part in ours life’s whether they are birthdays,anniversaries,graduations etc. I believe they are the best way to impress and express your love to someone.

I always make sure no matter what occasion it is it should be celebrated in a special way and the decoration should be A one (the best).

There are no parties without decorations and no decorations without balloons.Balloons 🎈 are a must in every occasion and they play a huge part in each celebration 🎉.

Many of you,like me might have struggled to leave home and reach the party shop before closing time to get a bunch of inflated balloons 🎈 at midnight. Haven’t you?(Most of the shop I know close at 10:00pm).But What if I told you now there is an easier way to celebrate occasions anytime anywhere. 😄😁😆

Recently I got introduced to Balloonee-Make your own balloons on my parents anniversary and what can I say,it indeed made their day special and my life easier.Before I tell you what exactly it is ?Here’s a peek of the decorations I did on my parents anniversary with Balloonee 👇🏻.

*Both these kits also include a guide to help you follow the instructions on how to use? and tank disposal after use.

What I love about Balloonee is that it’s  easy to use (totally a piece of cake 😊) and you have no limitations,(well on the number of balloons you do)but still you can mix and match your favorite balloon colors and shapes, for your decorations and party preparations anytime and anywhere.(you can even carry these kit around 🚗 and surprise someone last minute).The only thing is that these tanks are not refillable and must be disposed after usage (when your done just buy another one 😊).Also it does say that you can fill up 30 latex but it does only fills up 22-23. (2 got busted and the rest (x5) were left out)Nevertheless Balloonee- Make your own balloon is a great idea and concept.This simple to use kit is definitely a requirement for all your party needs.Whether it’s at midday or midnight Balloonee-Make your own balloons 🎈have surely got you covered.

Who doesn’t love piñatas.This game is just like popping a real piñata open.

Pop Pop! Pinata

How to Play?
There are two ways of playing this game (we play the second option mostly).
But firstly put the prizes in and spin the piñata to mix the prizes inside

First way of playing is hitting the piñata gently by pressing the party disc hit button on the bottom.The piñata will stay closed and only a few prizes will come out.Put the prizes in the cup and then it’s the next players turn.If the other player splits open the piñata you win!.

The second way of playing is by hitting the piñata harder and popping the prizes out.Like just a real piñata…everyone races to put the prizes in their cups.The player with the most prizes wins.

This game requires assemble and will be loved by all.
Note: contains small parts so definitely not suitable for children under 4

Memory Game
Ohh how Princess Z loves this game.Shes a big fan of Dora the Explorer so we bought her a Dora and Friends memory cards game from a local shop

Dora The Explorer Memory Game

How to Play?
Everyone knows how to play this game but will still tell you 😉.Flip the cards over two at a time to uncover,match the most pairs and the player with the most cards wins.

This game includes 72 cards in total…( 3 sets in purple,yellow & pink color)

This is a picture memory game so no reading. required.
Ages 3+
1 or more players

Bingo
Even though Princess Z is just 4 she plays this game really well and enjoys it.Everybody loves this number game specially when you get the first row of numbers and are the first one to say ‘Bingo’ 😉

How to Play?
Includes a number chart, x36 number cards and bingo chips.Its simple just pronounce one number at a time and place a bingo chip if you have it on your number card.If you complete a row shout out ‘bingo’.Even though this is a bit though for children below 6 it’s a great way for improving their number recognition skills.

Tip: When saying the number break it down to make it easy for the child (if they are playing along) like for example: instead of saying forty two (42), say four two forty-two (42).This will help the kids recognize the numbers without any help 😊.
