I mentioned in my previous post I mentioned that I went to Blog On MSI on the 1st May. I blogged about the seminars in my last post and today I’m bringing you the fun and games at Blog On MSI!
Swizzels Matlow Ball Pool
First up was the Swizzels Matlow Ball Pool! Oh yes people a full sized ball pool. There was a competition for taking a selfie in the pool. I didn’t win but I did enter…. (oh and I need to apologise to Swizzels for my damned autocorrect changing their name to Swizzlers!)
There was an abundance of toys there thanks to various PR firms. There were some Peppa Pig prototypes which looked very interesting. I also spotted some Paw Patrol stuff which are a firm favourite in our house.
Also spotted the Timeline game by Esdevium Games. You get a handful of cards and you and your opponent(s) have to take turns in putting the cards in chronological order. There’s numerous versions of the game including Movies, Historical Events and Star Wars.
Hotter Shoes and Dream Genii Maternity Pillow
I didn’t get much of a chance to stop by these two stalls but I did spot them. I will be honest and say that I hadn’t really heard of them before but since being to the conference I have spotted one of their shops and had a browse. And then the maternity pillow looked great but unfortunately my pregnancy days are over with! (Yay and nay!)
There was a great challenge put on by Canvas Holidays – you had 60 seconds to pack as many items into a suitcase/backpack. I managed 58 items which was pretty decent… it’s all the practice I’ve had in doing a quick chucking of toys into the toy box at the end of the day! They also had a fab prize to win a £1500 holiday! I wasn’t the winner but how fab was that?!
Raffle and Tombola
There was also a raffle and tombola raising money for Kids Cancer Charity and raised around £1200! I completely missed the tombola but I did win at the raffle – a lovely wine glass holder made by Alice.
I mentioned this in my previous post – there was a Craft Den hosted by Black Sheep Wool Co where you could learn to sew/knit/crochet.
There was so much going on so I wouldn’t be surprised if I’ve missed things and I apologise sincerely to those I have mentioned.
Check back on Friday for the next post – all about the food!!
