This year there were more toy brands which would have been awesome for the parent bloggers and I'll admit I was particularly taken by Betty Spagetti even if I did have a tanturm and throw her on the table when I couldn't find two legs the same length. (it was late in the day and I was shattered) I also loved the PomPom Wow. I decorated my badge with them and would be quite happy with a box of them of my very own.
As in previous years the lovely swizzels people were there and they supplied us with lots of sweets and brought their ball pool which I now regret not going in. Some of the picture I've seen of people in the pool turned out brilliant.
I tried my hand at crochet but while I get the theory, in practice I'm terrible at it! I need lots of practice but I feel like it's a skill I'd like to learn as I've seen a few people make mood and sky blankets and I love the idea of them and think I'd like to make one. Maybe one day.
One of the brands had brought along a game called TimeLine and i'll admit at first I thought it would be a very geeky and not fun but it really was. I took away a sample pack and we've been playing it at work as part of our team engagement activity and I'm toying with the idea of buying the full version.
Another firm favourite were the Jammy Dodger marshmellows, which I bought a bag of and wish I'd bought more. I need to order some of them. I can't remember the name of who brought them so If you know can you leave me a comment so I can place an order.
A big thank you to Laura for organising the event, a lot of hard work has to go in to the planning and coordination of everything
