Wild Buggy – Review

If you haven’t been to Wild Buggy Driving Adventure Park then you need to put it on your list for the school holidays, or the weekend, or for birthday parties, or anytime really … just put it on your list of things to do!

Wild Buggy is a purpose-built adventure track in Melbourne where kids aged 5+ can take a drive on the wild side and conquer over 30 hardcore obstacles!

On arrival we were given a safety briefing and then fitted with hairnets and helmets before hitting the track!

Each non-licensed (5yr+) driver is accompanied by an instructor in a dual-control buggy to assist in turning, braking and acceleration and to guide them through the Wild Buggy track. The instructors are fantastic and fully engage with the kids – we know this because we had a GoPro in the buggy and we just loved watching the kids interacting with their instructor.

After the kids had their turns, Tim and I also went for a spin! All licensed drivers (P+) enjoy full control over their buggies whilst being accompanied by an instructor. Tim and I are daredevils (I wonder where the kids get it from?!) so we may have heard “slow up around this corner” just a few times!

We didn’t need to worry about our safety though, the Wild Buggy Tomcar is an Australian-manufactured vehicle that is in active military service today. They are built like a tank and designed to be parachuted out of a plane and survive! They are even able to drive on a 53 degree slanted wall and the purpose-built off-road track and obstacles are designed to take full advantage of the capabilities of the buggies!

We definitely took a ride on the wild side and we all cannot wait to return! Alegría and Isaac was living every little wild child’s dream and you couldn’t wipe the smile off their faces. They were beaming!

Please note: Wild Buggy is driving course only, with a small cafe and no extra activities located onsite. It’s the perfect place to start your adventurous day out!

Stay tuned for our Wild Buggy video! It will be released very soon!

Sports Chiller Drink Bottle – Smash Enterprises Review

Exciting news! We are now officially Smash Enterprises and Nude Food Movers Ambassadors so we will be sharing with you some to their products and how you can use them to make your life easier. When it comes to making school lunches, we are all for easier!

Over the past week, we have been trialling the new Smash Sports Chiller drink bottle (which has just launched exclusively in Coles for $10 RRP) – I don’t know about you, but we go through a lot of drink bottles around here!

The top features of the Smash Sports Chiller are the dual wall insulation that keeps drinks 2.5 times colder than regular reusable plastic drink bottles. We trialed the Smash regular drink bottles as well, and surprisingly we did find that the drinks stayed colder. I can’t wait to use them in summer where I am sure we will really enjoy the difference.

The Sports Chiller also has a sweat free design which boasts about it’s no condensation feature – this means no more funky, wet bags for school! It’s easy to clean because of the wide opening (which is also good for popping in ice cubes) and is light weight and squeezable even for the smallest of hands.

There is a one-way performance valve which allows for fast flow and no leaks. We did a little leak test of our own, just to test! We trialled 4 bottles, and one of them leaked a little bit when we tipped the bottle upside down and jiggled it as hard as we could. When we tipped it up and just held it there it didn’t leak. What is so great about Smash, is that if there is a problem they fix it immediately – so never worry about your warranty.

STOMP, Melbourne – A Review

stompman

 

STOMP is back in Melbourne this week, and it will have you stamping your feet, clapping your hands and laughing until your cheeks hurt!

Alegria and I loved watching the eight performers use non-traditional instruments to thump out an explosively feel-good rhythm, although you need to be warned – the show is LOUD!

For 90 minutes (there’s no interval), we were tapping our toes and wondering what they were going to do next! It really is amazing that a musical that doesn’t include any traditional instruments and is wordless could be, in fact, a musical. But it really is!

One thing is for sure, I promise you will never look at supermarket trolleys, Zippo lighters, plastic bags and garbage can lids or even the kitchen sink the same way ever again!
