Review & Giveaway: Hotel Tycoon Game

We do love a board game here at Attachment Towers, and the latest addition to our collection is the fun Hotel Tycoon from Esdevium Games.  Apparently it's an update of the '70s game Hotel, but I don't remember that one at all.  Brought to the 21st Century with an upgraded look, feel and gameplay, the new edition includes an astonishing array of components, including twenty-eight hotel buildings that players add to the colourful game board as they progress.

Christmas Decorating Theme: Rustic/Country

I don't know if it's our austere times or our realisation that we need to be more green, but there is a definite rustic and country feel to many of the Christmas decorations this year.  This is epitomised in the Wild Wood trend from Wilko, which encompasses natural materials like hessian, wood, felt and wicker.

Review: Playmobil Advent Calendar 5492 Unicorn Fairyland

Whatever your thoughts on Christmas preparations, it is definitely time to start thinking about Advent calendars, and the creme de la creme this year are those offered by Playmobil.  With police, pony, dragon, fairy and traditional Christmas themes, there really is something for everyone.

Having Fun with the Kids in the Rain

Heading outdoors in cold and/or wet weather may not be your family's idea of a good time; video games and cosy confines are much more appealing. But there are all sorts of reasons why you should get outside, even when the sun isn't shining.

Review & Giveaway: Christmas Plate from Bluebelle Create

What do your children leave out for Father Christmas and the reindeer on Christmas Eve?  A carrot, a mince pie, milk, sherry, whisky?  We leave a carrot, a mince pie and a tot of sherry, and starting this year we have a special plate to leave it on.  How adorable is this?
