I have always been a fan of Angel Delight whipped deserts as I remember have them as a kid my favourite was Strawberry. I was very pleased to be able to try the new Ice cream mix,being very into ice cream at our house this is a great idea for making your own added ingredients into some great flavours.

If its successful it will hit the shops in 2012 so follow them on Facebook and keep you eyes peeled for a free sample to try ....
They are also on Twitter letting you know where they are giving out free samples

Angel delight sent me this free to try and review for my honest opinion

fab effex By Spin Master Toy Review....

I have just been sent a fab effex craft pack by Spin Master Toys . Who are the company behind Bakugan, Tech Dec,Mighty Beanz, Zoobles and many more.


Available from Smyths toys for £9-99.

This is what they say about the fab effex,it is a new craft material where the fabric is mouldable,re-useable and magically sticks where you can create characters with fabric.The kit comes with lots of patterns textures and shapes.You can shape it,wrap it,stick you can also glam up other thing's too.Make your own creations and you can personalize almost anything .Use to fab up your shoe, ipod, Jewellery and more . Age from 6+

On this website it shows you exactly what sort of things you can do with fab effex.



                

The contents of the box...
120 fab effex pieces,2 fab effects sheets,1 sticky square,3 plastic animal moulds,1 instruction guide.

What we thought of the Fab effex...

My kids were looking forward to trying this and my little girl decided straight away she was going to make the butterfly,which worked out well because my son wanted to make the lion.We had a quick read of the instructions and then they found all the pieces to their animal.We then got stuck in making the animals.The first time we used it the pieces fell off, we thought we needed glue but then we realized we need to push the pieces on with a firm hold and they soon got the hang of it.First to finish was my daughter with her butterfly and soon she wanted to try another animal so she did the fish.
They enjoyed playing with this and making the butterfly,fish and lion and am sure they will make many more things over the coming weeks. They have already asked what other things they do in the range, so am sure it will end up as one of the items on their Santa list..

The only negatives they had were minimal being a little disappointed that all the pieces in the right colours were not in the box.What they provide though is extra pieces of fabric for you to cut out and make your own shapes and inventions.I think for little ones its quite difficult to cut out the fabric into the shape they desire, so some adult supervision would be recommended.



Update.

My daughter has started using the fabric to accessorize lots of her favourite toys and her furniture. So thinking outside the box with this toy, gives you many extra hours of fun.
