PAINT YOUR OWN CANVAS KIDS SET (REVIEW) were kind enough to get in touch to see if I would like to review a product for them and this is the item I choose to review.
Within a few days of them contacting me and giving them my details my chosen product arrived in the post, packaged well in cardboard packaging.

The kids create canvas set comes with 4 canvasses, 1 paint palette, 6 paint pots, 2 glitter tubs, 1 paint brush, 1 ribbon and 5 sticker sheets, I choose to do this with my eldest son DJ and he couldn't wait until we were able to do it, (I thought it was best we waited until Ruby was in bed).
This is all packaged really nice and is aimed at children age 3years plus.

Here is DJ waiting for me to get a drink before we got started, on the palette is an extra space for you to mix your colors which I thought was a good idea, I also learnt whilst doing this that DJ know's how to mix and make various colors. Both of us really enjoyed doing this and it was nice to spend some quality time together doing something that he loves.
We spent a good 45 minutes doing a picture each and talking whilst doing it, After painting we allowed them to dry and decorated them with some stickers and glitter.

Here are 2 of the pictures that we have painted, we will be painting the other 2 at the weekend.
I really enjoyed doing these and asked DJ his opinion on them also.
DJ'S OPINION- I really liked doing this it was nice to do some painting different to what I normally do, I also like that I was able to stick stickers and glitter on them as well, I can't wait to do the other 2 with my mum again and hope that my mum will buy some more of these for me to do with my friends.

As I have already said I enjoyed doing this, and think that this kit would make a brilliant gift for friends and families children for birthdays and christmas, I for one will certainly be ordering some as gifts in the very near future.

Below are the links for find me a gift, there is a link for there website, facebook and twitter page.

I am a member of and am an official bzz agent, so sometimes I am sent products free of charge to review.
For this I was sent the naturally powered toilet cleaner (full size) and 2 samples of the washing up liquid and some money of vouchers. I have handed out the money off vouchers and washing up liquid samples to friends and have tried and reviewing the toilet cleaner myself.

Naturally powered all in one toilet gel has a lovely citrus scent to it, It claims to kill 99.9% of bacteria as well as disinfect, cleans, freshen and remove limescale from your toilet. It is recommended you leave in the toilet for at least 2 hours or overnight before flushing. I have done both

After leaving this for just over 2 hours I went to flush the chain and was surprised as it had cleaned and removed the limescale from the bottom of the toilet.
I left it a few days and again tried this but leaving it over night, when I woke in the morning I woke to the lovely smell of citrus in my bedroom and on the landing, After flushing the chain I was really surprised with the results, again it had cleared the limescale and my toilet smelt fresh and was sparkling.

Naturally powered also make other products and are produced for tesco and for sale in tesco stores.
It comes in a recycled plastic bottle with a green screw top lid that is suitable for recycling.
The only problem I have had with this is that the neck of the bottle is straight, I think it would be better if it was curved. This toilet gel isn't as thick as other brands of toilet cleaner I have used so I didn't expect it to work as well but it did, I still have a little of this product well and will be buying this in the future

Crazy Soap

Crazy Soap were kind enough to send me a few of their products to review.
I was sent 5 items in total from them
1)mousse (white)
3)bath time goo (yellow)
4)bath time body paint(red)
5)bath time paint (blue)

My son was really excited to try them out, so that day the products arrived he asked if he could have a bath after his tea.
We went upstairs and started to run the water(cold) so that he could do the bath goo himself so he took a handful and placed his hand under the taps and watched the goo start to dissolve into the water making loads of bubbles, and was really impressed by the fact that it also turned the water yellow.

Next DJ played with the mousse, this you can do what ever you like with, you can make it into shapes, use it on your body to wash with you can even mix 2 colors up together to make another color.
What DJ loved best was the body paints, he loved the fact that he could paint himself with them and draw on the bath and bath tiles without getting told off.
Both the bath paints have a nice clean fruity smell to them that lingers on the skin and in the bathroom for a good while afterwards, which I liked.

As you can see in the pictures above is DJ playing with the mousse making it into shapes and drawing on himself and the bath.
The bath paint is easy to rinse of the bath and body and lathers up well, We still have some body paint and mousse left but have run out of the bath goo and he has asked if we can get more, he now spends ages playing in the bath, compared to the 15minutes he used to spend in there.
Crazy soap is available to buy from Tescos and Morrisions, and prices start from just £2.00.
