A Guest Post from Izziwizzi Kids – Playfest

Kel of Writings, Ramblings and Reviews Blog kindly volunteered Izziwizzi to create a guest post on her blog today which I was so pleased about.

Kel and I have known each other now for 2 years because of one thing that originally connect us and that is a passion for play.


For those of you not familiar with Izziwizzi Kids or Play Fest I am Al Boxall-Gordon of the Izziwizzi Kids Play Fest. I’m a mum of three children aged 8,6 and 4 and host the Play Fest which is a FREE weekly event on Twitter and Facebook. As part of building this up over the last two years I have also established a social media marketing business Buzz Internet Marketing supporting brands and businesses to use social media effectively to get closer to their customers.

Play Fest is an opportunity for all families to get involved and have a say about something topical in the field of toys, games and play. We get brands, retailers, bloggers…you name it involved. We partner up with lots of fabulous brands and retailers to giveaway lots of goodies and discounts.
Kel first got involved in Play Fest in my first ever one that I held back in January 2011 and has grown with it from there. When it has come to designing the Play Fest, Kel has been there, when it’s come to improving it…Kel has been there, making reviews…Kel is there, when it’s come to making play ideas..Kel has been there…In fact when Play Fest has needed anything…Kel has been there armoured with a nice big slice of cake and a glass of wine!

Kel brings a nice chill out tone to Play Fest and that always amazes me as she juggles this with a very busy life, moving house, raising the kids and all the other stuff life brings and yes still manages to make to Play Fest. If for some reason she’s not as active…yes she still comes along and says hi and tells us. 

Kel has also been known to be amazingly brave at hosting a Play Fest or two to to give me a little time to myself now and again and to that Kel…I am eternally grateful.


I’d like to invite you to get involved in Play Fest with Kel. It’s FREE! It’s every Thursday evening on Facebook and every Tuesday evening on Twitter. It’s easy to access via any computer, tablet or mobile phone. You can find more details by following Izziwizzi on Twitter or liking the Izziwizzi Kids Facebook Fan Page.

Over the coming weeks you can enjoy Play Fest with Slow Toys (with Selfridges) and Galt Toys with some stocking fillers for Christmas. Follow Izziwizzi Kids to keep up with more exciting things in the pipeline.
