Battroborg Warrior

Battroborg WarriorWe’d previously reviewed the Battroborg Arena, so we are Battroborg veterans.  Like other Battroborg sets it’s worth being aware that it will take a little while to set up.  You need 8 AA batteries, 4 for each controller, and a cross head screwdriver.  Then you need to allow about 20 minutes charging time, so it’s best to set it up in advance or manage expectations with your child.

The Battroborg Warriors have developed from the previous Battroborg robots.  Now there are weapons and armour, plus efforts have been made to improve the controls and the sound effects.  This set comes with a samurai and a ninja to battle with, but there are many more to choose from.  In fact there are romans, aliens, knights and vikings too. Players control the battle and the borg’s moves with a single-handled katana blade controller which has been designed for slashing and swordfighting.We liked the fact that you can interchange the weaponry to add some variation to the game.

There’s a lot of action fun as you’d expect, but the Battroborg warriors can be a little hard to control and H found it difficult at times to knock down the other warrior.  It’s also a bit tricky to get your Battroborg warrior to go exactly where you want him too.  The idea of swinging the blade controller is a very instinctive one and a natural one for kids to pick up, plus it makes you feel like you are part of the fight.

Skylanders Kaos Trap

Skylanders Trap Team Kaos TrapH continues to be a big Skylanders fan and if your children are interested in the game they will no doubt have told you about Skylanders Trap Team, the latest installment of the game. Kaos is of course, the ultimate Skylanders villain, and with the Kaos Trap, players will be able to ‘trap’ Kaos in the Skylanders Trap Team game.  This will allow them to unlock him as a playable character in the game.  How cool is that?

The Kaos Traps will be available from all the usual Skylanders retailers during November, but this Halloween Friday, each Smyth’s Toys will have 24 Kaos Traps to sell early to a lucky few. Some will also be available online, so you’ll need to be quick.

Skylanders fans can find out more about Kaos here.

Billington’s Brownies #bakeface

#bakefaceBillington’s recently got in touch with me to let me know about a competition they are running. The idea is that you bake something using one of their range of sugars and upload a pic of yourself eating it.  Now we haven’t long had our new range cooker and very little has been cooked in it, so I decided to break its baking duck by making some brownies for the #bakeface competition. Billington’s had kindly sent me the ingredients and utensils necessary to make the brownies, which was just as well as a lot of my baking stuff is still in the depths of the spare bedroom in the aftermath of Operation Kitchen Refit.

#bakeface competition entryVery nice they were too and I got H to take a pic of me eating the finished article as my entry into the #bakeface competition.  If you’d like to vote for me you can vote for me here.  If you’d like to enter yourself, you can do so here.  There are some great prizes to be won including a Kenwood kMix Stand Mixer and personalised #bakeface items like aprons.
