Get the kids involved in helping save the Rhino, with the Rhino Coin Bank

Prima Toys and Wildlife ACT have once again come together in support of one of South Africa’s most iconic and endangered wild creatures – the Rhino.

Rhino

The two conservation-minded organisations, have worked together in the past to raise funds to help feed and care for baby rhinos, who have been orphaned as a result of prolific poaching. In past years, Prima Toys and Pick n Pay have raised more than R500 000 for Wildlife ACT, through their Baby Rhino and Wild Pals soft toy promotions, all funded by the generous people of South Africa, who through their purchase of these soft toys, donate to the cause.

This year, in support of World Rhino Day (22 September), Prima Toys will be launching 20 000 Rhino Coin Banks into South African toy retailers. These are adorable, soft toy rhino ‘piggy banks’, with a plastic interior and a removable stopper to hold cash and coins inside its belly. These will be available for purchase in all leading toy specialist and supermarket stores.

For every purchase of one of these Rhino Coin Banks, Prima Toys will donate R10 to Wildlife ACT, who facilitates the funding of various organisations that care for and feed baby orphaned rhinos, until they are old enough to be released back into the wild.

“Prima Toys hopes to raise awareness of the plight of rhinos among younger generations, and have guaranteed a contribution of R200 000 to this very worthy cause.”

– Chiquita Patrizi, Marketing Executive, Prima Toys.

In addition to this funding, any money that a child saves in his or her Rhino Coin Bank, can be donated back to Wildlife ACT – through their ‘Donations’ portal on https://www.givengain.com/cc/primatoys/. Prima Toys will in turn donate 10 x Toy Hamper prizes in a ‘Lucky Draw’ competition to five boys and five girls who make a donation through the GivenGain website.

Wildlife ACT is a registered non-profit organisation, staffed by conservationists, dedicated to preserving endangered wildlife within South Africa. The funds will be used to help sponsor the teams that are sent out to find and rescue the orphaned rhinos in the wild, the formula (milk) and feed needed to sustain the baby rhinos, and the upgrade of security at the bomas where these orphans are held.

“Despite a small drop in poaching numbers announced by the Department of Environmental Affairs recently, our rhinos are still under threat. Not only do we need to keep up the fight against poaching, we desperately need to ensure that the baby rhinos that are orphaned as a result, are rescued and adequately cared for. Without their mothers, orphaned rhinos would sadly die without our assistance.”

– Johan Maree, Wildlife ACT

Get ready to play with Prima Top Toys

At a media launch in July, Prima Toys announced their Top Toys for December 2017. These are the toys that kids will be gazing at longingly in toy stores during the school holidays/festive season. Imagine how cool you’d be if you surprised them with any of these even before they give you those puppy dog eyes, or drop helpful hints. 😀

Before we get to the toys, I have to tell you a little about the launch, held at The Bryanston Country Club. On arrival the lovely ladies from MatsiMela Home Spa treated us to hand massages, as we sipped on champagne (how fabulous? 😉).

Of course, being the kind of people who enjoy spoiling others, meant that MatsiMela also had gifts waiting for us on our way out that day. 🙂 I received the Rooibos & Honey Body Butter and Fizz Ball. The scent of these products – oh my gosh! So beautiful!

Warren Murray from MamaMagic, The Baby Expo spoke about equal parenting, highlighting how dads should be as involved in raising and caring for their kids as moms are. During his talk he also mentioned how the few minutes you take to play is so appreciated by your child, and it’s those moments that become treasured memories.

Dr Shireen Thomas-Stark told us that when parents buy toys for their kids, they’re actually “investing money” because of the many benefits of play such as promoting creativity and problem solving.

Finally it was time for the real fun – Prima Toys marketing executive Chiquita Patrizi revealed Top Toys 2017! 😀

Shopkins Happy Places

Little ones can turn any space into a happy place with the Shopkins Happy Places range. The largest set in the Happy Places range is the Happy Home set that includes several Puppy Parlour Petkins and a Lil’ Shoppie. Other playsets include Kitty Kitchen, Dreamy Bear, Bathing Bunny, Slumber Bear Party, Bunny Laundry, Mousy Hangout, and plenty more. There is so much more to collect for the Shopkins fan. All sets include their own miniature Petkins and other accessories to go with whichever Happy Place you choose. Doll house play just got better because interior décor has never been cuter.

Little Live Pets Surprise Chicks

This one got everyone (each one of us an adult 😋) super excited! There was one Surprise Chick on each table, and watching them hatch and then move cutely around the table had us oohing, aahing, and giggling so much, that it took a while for everyone to settle again. For a few minutes, we were kids again, and it was such fun. Thank you Prima Toys for reminding us of the power of play.

There are five Chicks to collect: Patty the Party Chick, Blossy the Daisy Chick, Tilly the Dancing Chick, Beaky the Rainbow Chick and Henny Penny the Sunny Chick. You won’t know which Chick you’ve got till they hatch. The fun doesn’t end with the first hatch though; your Chick can hatch over and over again for endless fun. Fancy some sweet Chick chirping? Simply pet your Chick, the more you pet it the more it will chirp. So cute!

Elena of Avalor

Princess Elena is bold, confident and kind. With the help of family, friends, and magical flying creatures called jacquins, she must now rule the kingdom as Crown Princess, until she is old enough to be Queen. The Disney Elena of Avalor range of toys includes dolls and accessories, perfect for lots of fun roleplay.

L.O.L Surprise Tots Ball

Once again, we had the chance to play, with an adorable L.O.L being passed around each table, for each of us to unwrap and discover. First you get a secret message, then collectable stickers, a feeding bottle, doll shoes, an outfit, an accessory, and then a fantastic doll. There are forty five dolls to collect, each with their unique accessories.

Fingerlings Baby Monkeys

These guys will hang on to your fingers and tell you how they are feeling in 50 different ways. Listen to them making near real monkey sounds and watch them blink their eyes and turn their heads. Their hands and feet have a grip surface to hang upside down just like real monkeys.

Rubiks

The new range Rubiks includes Rubik’s Build IT solve IT, which comes with all the necessary parts to build your own cube (you can finally solve this 40 year mystery); Rubik’s Race, a two player game to get your fingers and brain working – the aim is to be the first player to make the 3×3 centre match pattern and the Rubik’s Tower – the new twist on the original cube, even more challenging than the original cube.

20 Questions

20 Questions is a classic for the whole family. Test your knowledge of people, places, things and important dates, and enjoy seeing everyone racking their brain trying to figure out the correct answers.

And there you have it, just some of #PrimaTopToys for the coming festive season.

We were gifted with goodie bags once the program was over, and it was a bag that made my little person really happy. One of the prezzies inside was her first ever pack of Shopkins, and now she wants to collect them all (they are super cute, so I totally get it).

Which #PrimaTopToys are you thinking of buying for your little/s?

Zeeview | Disney Princess Toddler Dolls

Disney Princess

Zee and I had so much fun making the My Little Pony YouTube video last week, we decided to make another! 🙂 This time Zee will be reviewing the gorgeous Disney Princess toddler dolls I won with Prima Toys at the #JoziMeetup.

Disney Princess

My little person was so excited to receive her lovely Disney Princess dolls, she held on to the boxes in the car and couldn’t stop smiling. When I’d bought my ticket, she was a little sad to hear the #JoziMeetup wasn’t going to be a mommy and kids event, but the “special Disney prezzies” really made up for that. 😉

Disney Princess

For the moms and dads who aren’t massive Disney fans (seriously though, how could you not be? 😀), here’s a little background to the show and film these two Disney Princesses come from:

Sofia the First is an American computer-animated television series on Disney Junior that features Sofia, a young girl who becomes a princess when her mother, Miranda, marries her kingdom’s ruler King Roland II. As she adjusts to her new role, Sofia works to live amongst the royal family while having different adventures along the way.

Tangled is a 2010 American 3D computer-animated musical fantasy-comedy film produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios and released by Walt Disney Pictures. Loosely based on the German fairy tale “Rapunzel” in the collection of folk tales published by the Brothers Grimm, it is the 50th Disney animated feature film. Featuring the voices of Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi, the film tells the story of a lost, young princess who yearns to leave her secluded tower. Against her mother’s wishes, she accepts the aid of a handsome intruder to take her out into the world which she has never seen.

And now, here’s Zee telling us a little bit more about her Sofia and Rapunzel dolls. We hope you like it. 🙂
