We are looking forward to spending a nice weekend as a family, ending with a Bank Holiday Monday. Whilst we plan what to do, it has me looking back to the Bank Holiday at the beginning of the month.
It was an early morning as we packed the car with coats and sweets and we set off on a road trip to Birmingham. We really like Birmingham, It is somewhere we have visited a few times as it is not too far away and we have always enjoyed it. The kids were very excited as we had tickets to a meet and greet with Tiana from the You Tube Channel ‘Toys and Me’ – to meet a ‘real life’ you tuber your own age is apparently the best thing ever!!
The reason Tiana was in The Entertainer in Birmingham was to launch the new Hatchimals CollEGGtibles; a collectible toy that you hatch yourself. Tiana is a popular young lady so there was quite a bit of queuing time, but queue we did and the kids then got to sit with Tiana and have a photo!
Both Monkey and Mouse were happy to walk away with a Hatchimal CollEGGtible Blind bag, they could not wait to get it hatched and find out which new friend was inside. Inside the blind bag you get one Egg (there are other pack sizes available too). You hatch the Egg by rubbing the heart until it turns from purple to pink, then you press gently and the egg cracks.
Once you have opened you can find out who you have, there are over 70 to collect and each one belongs to their own little family. The bottom of the egg can be used as a nest/stand for the CollEGGtible.
After we had discovered who our new companions were we headed off for a walk around Birmingham City Centre and the Bullring. We had fun looking around the area and the shops, taking photos and generally having a giggle!
We then finished our day sight-seeing, shopping and dropping, we headed home tired but content and a great Bank Holiday had by all!
