Skate Hut Review and Competition

I was sent two rather fabulous items from Skatehut, do not let the name of the company deceive you as they do lots more than skateboards.  I made a beeline to the toys section and it had some exciting products. 

I picked two out I knew would grab the attention of my boys and help us spend quality time together as a family, burning off some extra energy and having an excuse to get active outdoors!

Both products were reasonably priced, the Petron Fun Hand Bow for £12.95 and the Skylight Stomp Rocket for £14.95.  They certainly helped me nudge the boys away from Disney Infinity and closer to fresh air! 

We own a stomp rocket already and love it but the fact that a couple of the rockets for this set actually light up (flashing blue and red) makes all the difference.  This extra element definitely made the boys more enthusiastic about the product, wanting to jump hard on the air pump to see it light up the sky!  The Skylight Stomp Rocket is very simple to set up; both boys were capable of doing it themselves.



The Petron Fun Hand Bow had three sucker darts; you can conveniently store them on the hand bow.  Youngest spotted this straight away; he soon works things out, much quicker than his mummy anyway!  On the back of the box it arrived in is a target practice board so you can see how good you are at aiming!


It can be hard sometimes debating what to buy your children for presents.  I want to expand their interests away from just badgering me for more screen time!  Items like the ones I reviewed are ideal.  They had so much appeal for my two aged 5 and 6, just see how much fun they have in the video below.  No sound from them sorry the wind was much worse than we thought so we have music background instead!



I have been offered a voucher to giveaway worth £30 to spend on the Skate Hut site.  If you would like to enter just complete the rafflecopter below by the 14th of April.
