Recently we sparked more family fun by discovering a new way of playing the game with Pictionary Air. With the classic version you have to draw quick sketches on a sheet of paper or whiteboard and then guess what it is. No more paper wasting or ink drying as Mattel has taken this classic quick draw game to the next level. The high tech version of Pictionary Air allows you to literally draw in the air with a light pen – which is so much fun. (more…)
One of the benefits of living in Cape Town is that we are 45 minutes drive away from the country side.

Situated on the premises of Perdeberg Winery which lies at the foot of the magnificent Perdeberg Mountain. (more…)

A week ago a local based South African company, Mini-Me.Co.Za Personalised Lego Gifts popped me an email and offered me the opportunity to create my own personalised Lego figurine. An instant thought crossed my mind. How cool would that be? If toy companies can give celebrities the opportunity to create their own dolls; why can’t I create my own little mini-me Lego. Not that I classify myself as a celebrity but I am a blogger and my hard work must count towards something – right. I accepted the offer and created this cute little mini-me version of myself.
