** WIN ** Tickets to Transformers Animatronics: The Exhibition (2 x family packages worth R400 each)


This month marks 10 years since the release of Transformers, the first in a series of films based on the Hasbro toys. The 2007 film was the first, and also the best in the series (this is my opinion, but let’s face it, it’s the truth 😉). Yes there were flaws, but these are nanoscopic when compared to the brilliance that is the film as a whole. I’ve watched all of the Transformers films, with the exception of The Last Knight (because, parents), but I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve watched the first one. From the funny one-liners… to seeing them all transform for the first time… Optimus giving the iconic command, “Autobots, roll out!”… and the unmistakable intro to Linkin Park’s What I’ve Done at the end, before the credits roll… it all makes for an absolutely unforgettable film!

Of all the characters, Optimus is my favourite and Shawn’s (the film is THAT good – you get emotionally attached to a truck!), and Bumblebee is Zee’s. Mega fans that we are, you can just imagine the excitement when we got the chance to see these guys up close at Transformers Animatronics: The Exhibition!



Transformers Animatronics: The Exhibition is in South Africa for the first time! It is a walk through exhibition depicting the Transformers from the iconic 1980’s toy line, to the animated Rescue Bots, and finally incredible, towering sculptures which represent the Transformers we see in the film series. The exhibition features sculptures of varying sizes, some up to 11m tall (wow!), all made from re-used car parts, metal and other repurposed materials.

After an amazing 3 months at Emperors in Johannesburg, the Autobots and Decepticons have now arrived in Centurion, just in time for the Winter school holidays! They’ll be at Centurion Mall until 15 October 2017.

** WIN ** 

I have 2 sets of family tickets (2 adults + 2 kids) worth R400 each, to give away to 2 moms (or dads) to Transformers Animatronics in Centurion! 😀

***WIN*** A Barbie Video Game Hero Doll + DVD, Worth R800

* This giveaway has ended *

Just this past weekend, we had a laugh with friends of ours about our astounding wealth of Barbie movie knowledge. Our friends are parents, like us. And, like us, they’ve lost count of the number of times they’ve watched the many Barbie movies. No doubt most parents can relate. You’ve watched the movies, you’ve heard the songs on repeat, you’ve bought the toys. Little Barbie fans can never get enough of the timeless – and ageless (she is SO lucky) – Barbie, and her friends.
Barbie Video Game Hero

In the latest adventure, Barbie Video Game Hero, Barbie is pulled into her favourite video game, and is transformed into a fun roller-skating character. She meets new friends, and together they travel from level to level in the game. Barbie must rely on her amazing gaming skills, and out-of-the box thinking to save her team and beat the game.

Barbie fans can have their own adventures, with the Barbie Video Game Hero range of toys. There are quite a few to choose from, and they’re super cute. 🙂

These are just a few from the range:

Barbie Video Game Hero Barbie Doll – R230

Barbie Video Game Hero

Barbie’s “real-world” outfit captures a video game aesthetic, with a pink and white t-shirt featuring an image of her new friend from the game, denim pants with emoji patches and pink kicks. Pink and white headphones and a gaming tablet, power the look up. Two mini pixel characters and two adorable power-ups complete the video-game storytelling fun.

Barbie Video Game Hero Friend Doll – R399

Barbie Video Game Hero

Kids can choose from two characters who help Barbie achieve her quest. Both friends wear a signature outfit with bright neon colors and video game style.

Barbie Video Game Hero Vehicle Play Set – R400

Barbie Video Game Hero

Barbie fans can zoom into action with this vehicle play set. A sticker sheet is included, to decorate the roadster. A cloud character is ready to play, and the Barbie junior doll and her trophy “power-up” figure – also in 2D gaming style – are exclusive to the pack.

Cool note: All power-up characters unlock unique content within the related digital game when used with the Barbie Life App.

*** WIN!!! ***

And now, the best part… You can win a Barbie Video Game Hero Light-Up Skates Barbie doll + DVD, worth R800, and make your little Barbie fan very, very happy (plus, score major Awesome Mommy points)! 😀

Barbie Video Game Hero

Little ones just have to squeeze the handle – which clips around Barbie’s waist – to see her make awesome 360 degree turns. And her fab roller skates light up in four different colours as she moves.
