Review - Sticky Mosaics Dinosaurs & Harry Potter Quidditch Match

Sticky Mosaics – Dinosaurs £14.99 - This cool mosaics by numbers playset contains everything you need to make awesome dinosaur works of art. Includes 4 scary dinosaur designs, or create your own designs!

I’m sure that you all remember just how much we loved the Unicorns and Ponies version of these and the dinosaur ones are just as good. My 8 year old cousin tested these but he wasn’t at all convinced that he was going to like them as they look ‘like they are for girls’!!! I’m pleased though that his Mum reported back that he had played with them all afternoon and made some great pictures.

Harry Potter Lego Quidditch Match - £19.97 - Have some construction fun with this Lego Harry Potter Quidditch Match set. Catch the Golden Snitch and win the match for Gryffindor!

Now I love Lego as much as the next person but I tend to think that it’s quite overpriced for what it is. As Sherod said when he reviewed the Lego City Passenger Train, when we were kids Lego just came in a big bag and you used your imagination! When I first saw this I was rather sceptical but actually we had loads of fun with it. 

It includes 5 minifigures - Harry Potter, Oliver Wood, Draco Malfoy, Marcus Flint and Madam Hooch. Spectator stands feature seating for Madam Hooch and a hole for Quidditch players to fly through!  Lots of accessories including brooms, Quaffleand Bludgers, Golden Snitch, chest, three goal posts, catapults and a Quidditch trophy.

As fun as it was I wouldn’t spend £20 on it but only because Chick isn’t really into it. If your child is then I’m sure it’s worth the money and brilliant if you can add it to the other sets and the Hogwarts Castle which really does look amazing.

Both the toys above are available from Toys R Us in store. You can also like them on Facebook to find out about special offers and competitions!!!
