Last week we had an amazing day out in London as guests of Battlebox.
In fact, I’m almost positive that ours was the best one (don’t tell the other lovely bloggers who were there that I said that though) because not only did we get a lot of help Scott the survival expert, ours also had the added bonus of having a carpet made of magazines as Miss Frugal didn’t want to sit on the muddy ground!
We had a fantastic day and it was lovely to speak to the creator of Battlebox to hear why she started the company. It was to show her young son that the real world is much more interesting than playing on games consoles and watching TV which is something that I can completely understand.
Master Frugal is at the age where his friends are playing a lot on online games like Minecraft and whilst I do believe that these types of games do have a place, I completely agree that it’s much, much more important to be outside playing and learning about the world around us and there aren’t many toys or products on the market that encourage this kind of play.
The Bear Grylls Dangerous Den Kit was amazing – it includes tarpaulin, camo net and everything you need to make a great den along with other fun things for the explorers to do.
My two loved the kit and had a great time using it on the day and I love the idea behind the kits – Master Frugal has already added one to his Christmas list although it’s on there with a bike, a monkey and a laptop at the minute so I’m not sure it’ll make the final cut 😉
