Toys

Asda and Tesco recently had the most amazing toy sale. It allowed us to pick up some magical toys at magical prices and one of the first products Helen and I decided to investigate was these Disney Princess Ooshies.


We’d never previously heard of Ooshies although thanks to trusty Google I was able to find that they are available not just in the theme of Disney Princesses but also WWE Characters, DC, Marvel, TMNT and more! They’ve been available in Australia for some time now and have been so well received that the development of a play set is already in the making. 


We’re currently on series 1 of all Ooshie themes here in the UK (What a relief, there’s nothing worse than having to go back and try and find / collect them all) speaking of the collection there’s currently 40 characters to collect… Which considering the lifespan of the current series I think is respectable. 

I have to say what impresses me most about these collectable toys are their duel purpose. As Ooshies are in fact designed as pencil toppers. These little things provide an affordable and easy way of customising your writing equipment and encouraging the writing of younger children within the family.

In the terms of the quality of the product. I’m not overwhelmed and astounded nor am I disappointed – instead I’m somewhere in the middle depending on the price paid. Ooshies are currently available in , (three on show and one mystery) and .

As always I’d love to know what you think of the Disney Princess Ooshies. Will you be collecting them? Flipping them? or avoiding them? Let me know in the comments below.

Games

Having recently picked up my new (well… second hand) gaming PC I was excited to test out some titles I’d long forgotten. So imagine how blessed I felt when I found that the latest release in the RollerCoaster Tycoon franchise RollerCoaster Tycoon World had been reduced from £39.99 down to £2.49 on CD Keys.

Without hesitation I purchased it!

However, as I began to download I took a look around the reviews. Something perhaps I should have done before purchasing but after all £2.49!

They were terrible – and I mean terrible! I couldn’t find one positive review.


However, I put all that behind me and set up the game regardless. An while it was not even close to the most visually appealing game I’ve played in 2017 either on PC or console it did scratch that ‘Rollercoaster Tycoon’ itch at an absolutely fantastic price. In the space of a few hours I managed to discover the flaws that others had spoken about in their reviews. At full price I began to see why so many were left so disappointed. 

Despite the flaws this game is albeit it fully functional. It’s not the best in the Rollercoaster Tycoon series, however if you’re looking for the basis of the RollerCoaster Tycoon game without the Planet Coaster price then this is a great place to start.



As always this is just my opinion. I’d love to know what you think about the game… Love it or hate it? What should we be checking out instead? Let us know in the comments below.


You can purchase RollerCoaster Tycoon World for yourself at a reduced cost from CD Keys.
