Historic Newspapers - Personalised Burnley FC Newspaper Book

AD - I was sent this product for the purpose of this review and was compensated for my time.

Father's Day is right around the corner - this year is flying by. I don't know about you but I really struggle when it comes to gifts for the men in my family. Thankfully, Historic Newspapers got in touch, suggesting one of their personalised Football history books to gift to someone special this Father's Day. I'd never seen their products before and thought, wow - what a unique idea!

Nick and I decided to order one of the football history books for his step-dad who is a huge Burnley FC supporter. I know, I know - someone has to support them, haha. Ordering on the website was very quick and stress-free. I simply selected the book that I wanted to order, then personalised by typing the giftees name, and by adding a personal message.

You can also upload a photo, and select a certain cover which vary in price - it's great and as I've already mentioned, very easy to do. The A4 leatherette with colour pages - £39.99, A3 brown leatherette with colour pages - £44.99, and last but not least the A3 luxury black leather, with colour pages, and free embossing - £59.99. There are additional extras too such as embossing, or gift boxes for £5 each.

This personalised Burnley FC history book is a must-have for all Clarets. The history starts in 1913, and the earliest newspaper reports are so fascinating - it's like stepping back in time. It's great to learn about some of the teams most memorable matches, and key players. Having all these newspaper clippings in one book is so special - it's quite incredible to flick through and watch the clubs history unfold before your very eyes. I have to say, seeing Sean Dyche at the end really made me smile! 

I can't recommend this book enough - it's going to be a gift that is enjoyed for many, many years. 
Nick's stepdad is going to be made up with this incredible, and thoughtful gift. Visit the website to take a look at Historic Newspapers full range of football history books.

Masha and the Bear Doll & Winter Bear Treehouse Playset - Review

AD - We were sent these products for the purpose of this review, however, all opinions are my own.

Masha and the Bear is a favourite in our house! I don't get it myself - it seems a bit wild but the kids cannot get enough of the chaos! With this in mind, I was delighted to accept a couple of toys from the range to review - and to visit our local Entertainer store to see them in-store.

The first toy we decided to open was the Masha and the Bear Winter Bear Treehouse Playset. Suitable for children from 3 years it retails at a respectable £20.00. Included with the set is the house itself, Masha figure, Bear figure, snowman, and over 15 other accessories - including Bears infamous armchair, and juggling set.

It's quite a compact playset and once opened up all the attached furniture pieces such as the stove, and fridge folds down nicely. The smaller accessories can fit inside the breadbin, in the pan, or chest - it's a lovely touch and one which keeps children engaged in play. As a parent, I must say that I was a little disappointed that the figures and accessories don't all fit inside neatly once put away. It means that many of the pieces have to be stored separately, and will be prone to being lost. If the playset was a little larger everything would be able to fit inside - it would have made it perfect.

Our favourite part of the Masha and the Bear Winter Bear Treehouse Playset has to be the figures - they are so like the show and articulated at the hips. I keep finding them inside Ava's rucksack as she likes to take them to and fro. Overall, it's a fabulous little set and who can argue with the price?

Next, we have the Masha and the Bear 23cm which is suitable for children from 3 years of age and retails at £20.00 - however, it's currently in the sale. Masha looked super cute in the box and Ava couldn't wait to get her out of the box. The doll is a lovely size and weight for young children like Ava to carry around and she really likes how you could pull down her headscarf, to expose her little pineapple ponytail. You can grab both toys online, and in-store from The Entertainer.
