Slurpees Snot Suckers Review

Recently, we were sent the Slurpees Snot Suckers which Jared could not wait to get into. I mean what 6 year old boy doesn't like snot and slime?

We were sent a bag which included 4 slime suckers, a rug, a mug, a pair of socks and a hat. With one common them amongst them all... they were all snot colour green which although it is simple marketing it works very effectively to keep consistency amongst the products.

The Slime Suckers are 4 characters of different colours and each come with their own pot of snot! You can pull the snot, twist it, throw it, in short you can do what kids do best with it, that is play and have fun. If you squeeze the snot suckers they can actually suck up the slime which Jared found absolutely hilarious. It turned into a bit of a game of, who could suck up the most snot in the quickest time. Liam seemed to be like a big kid with them and was inventing loads of different challenges to play. They even attempted a tug of war with 2 of the snot suckers! If you lose the snot then these can double up to be bath toys as they are fully waterproof.

I was surprised to notice that after playing with the snot, your hands are still very clean and all they needed were to be dried off. We have had slime based product in the past which leave your hands a sticky green mess, almost as if you have actually sneezed snot into the palms of your hands

Overall, this product works perfectly for what it is designed to do. It is simple enough so any kid can pick it up and instantly know what to do and how to do it.
These can be purchased for £4.99 per Slurpees Snot Sucker so they make a perfect little stocking filler or something for the kids to buy with any Christmas money. 

***We were sent this product for free for the purpose of a review. This has not influence my opinion of this product in any way***

Young Drivers

A few weeks ago my sisters got the chance to drive a car. For most that would be something normal but for two teenagers aged thirteen and sixteen it was a day full of excitement. Young Drivers is a company that offers driving experience's for those aged 5 and up, although you do need top be aged ten to drive a real car. The younger children drive small Go-Kart type cars.

The car that you get to drive in is a Vauxhall Corsa which is a good little car and something that most newly passed young drivers tend to get. I was under the impression that the cars would be automatic what with such young kids behind the wheel I thought maybe the gears would be too much, however they are actually manual. It was a surprise to see how well those aged ten didn't stall the car.

There are sixty UK venues that offer these lessons, we went to the one in Leeds. It was a little tricky to find at first as the signage wasn't great and was really small but we got there in the end. The location we went to used to be an RAF base and the driving took place on the run way. When we first arrived we checked in at reception which is located inside the cafe, the girls were then given there drivers book. The drivers book is where the instructor will document when you have completed certain driving tasks such as getting to know the car, just like you would do in a lesson when learning to drive.

My sisters were both having a half an hour lesson but you can get an hour long lesson. Once they got in the car they made there way to the runway along with other drivers and there lesson was underway. I must admit it was a little strange seeing my thirteen year old sister driving a car. Here is a little what they thought of the driving experience.

'These Lessons are perfect for if you are wanting to have fun or if you want 
to get a head start with driving lessons before you turn seventeen. It's also good
for if you are wanting to feel more confident on the road. I found the instructors 
extremely helpful and they were great at explaining everything to me, they made me 
feel at ease when I was unsure of something. The environment is nice and controlled, 
there are others driving along too. At first it is a little intimidating seeing other young 
drivers but it soon becomes normal and a comfortable environment. This lesson
was a fantastic insight into what it is going to be like when I start to drive'

'Having never experienced anything like this before I'm glad to say I enjoy it
To start with I was really nervous as I thought of things going wrong like, crashing
the car. The Instructor was great and really reassuring when I thought I was 
doing things wrong. I really enjoyed the lesson and was glad to learn how to steer 
correctly, I felt so proud of myself afterwards. I was surprised at how much 
easier it was than I first thought. I think that these lessons really will benefit people
before they start driving as you learn the basics and it face your fears. 
I would recommend this to everyone'

From my point of view I think these lesson's are perfect for anyone who is wanting to get start on learning to drive. We live in a world where being able to drive isn't just a way of getting from A-B but it is also jobs. So why not start sooner, it will boost confidence and make younger drivers safer drivers by learning sooner and getting rid of those nerves. 

With Christmas just weeks away these lesson would be a perfect gift for if you don't know what to get that fussy teenager.
