We were recently sent a fantastic box of products from Home Bargains to review. It contained a football, a tennis kit, a swim vest, a swimming hat, a kite, a pair of festival sunglasses, Ambre Solaire suntan lotion, mosquito/bug spray and relief, a hooded towel and Nivea Sun Lotion.
The football has been played with daily (often by a child wearing a swimming hat – don’t ask) and my son really enjoys the fact that it is lightweight because the wind can really get hold of it when you kick it.
I had fun trying to fly the kite but the wind was a bit inconsistent (or so I shall keep telling myself as a reason for my failure). It was really easy to get up in the air, but slightly harder to get to stay in the air!
My daughter has been using the swim vest whilst we have been over here in France and it has definitely helped her gain confidence in the swimming pool. We haven’t yet removed any of the floats because I don’t think she is quite ready for it. The hooded towel has also been used daily out here in France. It's fantastic for scooping my daughter out of the pool with and I love that the hood helps to dry her hair quickly.
The Ambre Solaire suntan lotion and mosquito/bug spray and relief have also been really handy because they are small enough to pack into your bag for a day out. In fact, the suntan lotion has lived in my handbag and has often been a backup when I have forgotten to take anything else out with me.
The prices of all these products are listed below and I think at those prices they really are bargains. I would highly recommend all of the products we were sent and I think I shall be popping into Home Bargains to see if they have any other festival sunglasses. I don’t know how I have managed to keep mine away from my daughter for so long, but I am clinging on to them!
