AnySharp Knife Sharpener

In our house the kitchen is where the most waste is, from food to packaging and everything in-between. As a family we have actively been trying to reduce our waste, tackling our recycling that little bit more.

After seeing that we were doing as much as we could it got me thinking bigger. The amount of times we have thrown out a chipped mug or blunt knives rather than recycle them, partly because it seemed too much effort. I've since started taking crockery to the local recycling center and as for the knives we have a great little kitchen gadget.

The gadget is the AnySharp knife sharpener. We were asked if we would like to review the product and it seemed perfect as I had been looking at buying one. When it arrive I was a little surprised as I had expected it to be a little bit bigger. However size isn't everything.

The AnySharp knife sharpener has a suction base so that it can sit securely on your counter top. In the past I tried to use a hand held sharpener and nearly lost a thumb so for me this feature is something that all knife sharpeners should have.

The use of the AnySharp is really simple, light strokes of the knife are key here. Many people push hard thinking it's needed but just light stories do the job. Liam has sharpened all the knives in the house after I done a few.

I mentioned that the AnySharp was smaller than I had expected. I think this is because in looking at other sharpeners they were large with handles or a gap for you to hold it down. I'm glad that the AnySharp is smaller in comparison because it makes it easier to store, I can even stick it to wall when not in use. Overall I'm really impressed with this and would recommend this.

*We have been sent the AnySharp for the purpose of this review, this does not impact any of my thoughts and opinions on this product and everything said is my own thoughts and opinion.

Beaker Creatures Reactor Pods Review

With Easter just days away you may be stuck with what to give the kids that doesn't involve chocolate, they just seem to get way too much chocolate now. For the past few years we have cut down the amount of chocolate eggs they get as we found that we were having to throw away out of date eggs. Yep I had to bin chocolate because even I couldn't sneakily eat anymore of it.

So let's talk about these Beaker Creatures Reactor Pod's. These bath bomb looking pod's mix science and fun together, each pod contains a creature from a 'Planet' there are 35 to collect in this first series. As well as the creature there is also a classification card and a mini poster which has some fun science facts.

We were gifted the Reactor Pod's to try out and the kids loved them. All you need is a bowl of water and excited children (please note that adults can do this without the children if wanted). The kids will want to throw that pod right in put I'd suggest they place it in nicely and excitedly watch as it fizzes and reveals the egg hidden inside.

There are different coloured Reactor Pod's in ours we got the orange and blue which turned the water the same colour as it was. Each colour represents which category the toy will be a part of. Once the egg is free you can crack it open to see what toy you got. We got three from the Buglettes and one from Oceanites.

Priced at just £4 they are perfect for an Easter alternative as you would spend £4 upwards on just the one egg  without a toy included. I do have a little giveaway for you so that you can win two Pod's so just fill out the form below.

How is it nearly Easter?

For Easter this year we will be celebrating by spending it with family, this is partly because Easter is the day after my birthday. We will go for a meal and then enjoy as much chocolate as we can consume.

There are so many Easter activities going on which can sometimes become expensive. So we often like to do an Easter hunt at home and maybe a few Easter crafts.
