disclosure:  we were gifted the items mentioned in this post

Following on from my initial #my99psummer post, I decided we must be due for a #my99psummer with @99pstoresuk update!  So here it is.

My son has been obsessed with all things aviation since our aviation day and then our trip to the Air Tattoo at Fairford a couple of weeks ago. He’s been playing with his airport a lot since then so it seemed natural that this was the next bargain to give him……

He loves this plane – it makes an engine noise and has flashing lights.

Sadly the lights and sound no longer seem to be working, I think there was quite a bit of continuous button holding from my son involved, but he still seems to love this new aeroplane.

I hadn’t been in my 99pstore bargain bag for a week or two, so decided that I really should remedy this.  What to pick out?  It was a lovely afternoon so I decided on an outdoor activity or two.

First out of the packet were the 3 ‘Cars’ themed frisbees.  He had never seen a frisbee before, and it had to be said that I am not the best frisbee thrower in the world!  But we had a great time and they are just the right size for him and for our small garden.

The pack of 3 frisbees kept us amused for ages. He loves Cars and Lightning McQueen too, so this established the frisbees as an instant hit anyway. I can see these being well used by Monkey this summer.

We had a break and then decided to open the pack of Gliders.  There are 3 different styles of the glider in the pack and 4 kits for each style – 12 gliders in all, a bargain for 99p!!  We agreed that I would assemble one of each style (they are made of a thin foamy material so a bit too delicate for a 3 and half-year-old boy to assemble himself).  There are instructions on the back of the packet …..

…… and they are very easy to make – phew!

…..  and they actually do fly!  I did get the red one doing loop the loops – by accident, but still, quite impressive.

When Daddy P is around I’ll have to get him to video us flying the gliders, I took some footage but it hasn’t come out very well.

Now I do have to say that these gliders are not made of the sturdiest material and a heavy-handed boy has already broken two out of the three planes, but a bit of sticky tape and they’ve been back in flights.  For 99p I really can’t complain.  We have enough in the pack to give one to each of his NCT buddies when we next see them too, and still have a few spares left over.  I can see that these may not last much past the summer, but we’ll certainly have some fun with them. Chucks away and off we go!



Over 40 and a Mum to One

A Mum with a 13 year old son, enjoying life and having fun as my son travels through school life. We love to get outdoors whenever possible and make the most of the world around us. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing days out, toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure.
