Review: Children of the World by Tactic Games

0 comments

Over the school holidays we've been on lots of adventures but we've also been trying out some new fun family games. We do love a good board game in our house and Tactic Games have kindly sent us another beauty to try out as a family. This time it was Children of the World! A fantastic new game which is perfect for learning all about new cultures.

Aimed at children aged 5-10 years this is the perfect game to start a lifelong appreciation and fascination for different cultures around the world. Exploring people and cultures activates children’s natural curiosity, and keeps them engaged time and time again. You can play this game one of two ways, with the second being easier for the younger children so they don't miss out. There can be between 2-6 players and each game can last around 15 minutes + depending on how you play. 


This game takes you off for an adventure. Children of the World is a colourful window into the big wide world and shows you how people can live their lives in different countries. The players in this game play together, move on the game board and perform fun tasks to collect stamps for their passport. It creates a sense of team work so everyone is involved and there's no huge competitive energy which I really like. You get the opportunity to learn about the things that connect all the children of the world and the things that make us all so unique!


Contained in each box is; a game board, 100 cards, 1 passport + 12 detachable stamps, 1 bag, 40 travel discs, 7 ticket tiles, 6 game characters + plastic stands, instructions and a die + stickers. The instructions are clearly laid out and are nice and colourful plus all the writing is cut down into short chunks of reading. 

The aim of the game is to move your character around the game board which looks like a map of the world (divided into 6 different parts; South America, North America, Europe, Africa, Asia and Oceania). You move around answering questions and collecting stamps for your passport. The game ends when all the players add the last stamp to the passport. 


Children of the World retails for around £19.99 and is a lovely simple game which the whole family can enjoy. It's a beautifully illustrated colourful board game that I'd definitely recommend. Both of my kids really enjoyed it even though Logan is older. He loves facts so was happy to join in and it meant the game was more geared towards Harlow (who's 6) so she could get fully involved and have lots of fun whilst learning. 

This game has been gifted in return for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

Review: We Drifters Anti-Insect Sleepwear

0 comments

Since restrictions have been lifting the 2021 Summer has been all about staycations and exploring your own country for a lot of people, including us. As a family we love our getaways and staycations anyway and it's finally been great to get out and explore again. As you might have seen from my Instagram account we've been taking full advantage with trips to Blackpool, Oban, Mull, Isle of Skye, Aberdeenshire and of course some camping. And with exploring Scotland most of you will know that the Scottish midge is prolific in making your time away a living hell! That's where We Drifters come in and save us with their ingenious anti-insect sleepwear.


The husband and I were each sent a set of sleepwear to try out and honestly they're fab. My husband especially is super juicy to the midge population so he has been loving his we drifters sleepwear. The We Drifters anti-insect sleepwear package comes with; a long sleeve top, pair of trousers, pair of socks and a 2-in-1 pillowcase & storage bag. I was a little skeptical at first but since we've been trying them out for the past 3-4 months we really can't fault them.


The anti-insect sleepwear has basically been impregnated with HHL Technology Vital Protection, which is a revolutionary and long lasting anti-insect technology that can help you avoid nasty, itchy bites or even worse, serious illness. In addition, Vital Protection provides Quickdry, UPF50+, anti-microbial functionality, preventing odours, discoloration and degradation, ensuring fresher, more hygienic and durable fabrics.

These lightweight bamboo fabric sleepwear are said to keep 90% of bugs at bay, including mosquitoes, midges, and ticks. The sleepwear is unisex and can be worn by anyone. I love the fact each set includes thumb holes and stirrups to keep wrists and ankles covered (you can also clip the top to the trousers), plus the socks are so comfy and the 2-in-1 pillow case & storage bag is the icing on the cake. 


I found this sleepwear extremely comfortable, soft and breathable. I never got hot in it but it still kept me warm when the temperatures dropped. My husband found the same and normally he sweats like mad at night. I've had bamboo clothing before and they always feel amazing so I was grateful that we drifters felt the same. If you've never experienced bamboo clothing before then you're definitely missing out! This sleepwear fabric keeps it shape, washes well and is stretchy for a comfortable fit. 


If you're the type of person who travels a lot, camps a lot or is a general explorer then you need this anti-insect sleepwear in your life. Like I said at the start I was skeptical but am completely converted and love mine. Every time we go away on another adventure I make sure and pack these beauts in our luggage first. When we can finally go abroad again I'll be taking them there with me too.
Each sleepwear set retails for £85 but it is 100% worth the investment. They really do keep the bugs at bay and you'll be thanking yourself when there's no midges flying your way. Check out the We Drifters website for more information.
