RYOBI – Father’s Day Gift Guide and $399 Giveaway!

This post is in collaboration with RYOBI

Eight years ago, Tim became a Daddy. I remember for his first Father’s Day, I made him a mug with photos of Alegría on it. He still uses that mug today. In the subsequent years, we have given him an assortment of gifts. Some hits and some misses. This year, is guaranteed to be a hit! (Psst! Spoiler Alert, we are giving one of you a chance to WIN Dad’s present this year … but more on that later!)

One of the world’s largest and most innovative power tool manufacturers, RYOBI specialises in making quality power tools truly affordable and with over 70 tools in the ONE+ range. So, whether Dad is interested in woodworking, automotive, DIY, camping or gardening, RYOBI has a tool for him!

Now, picking a tool for Dad might seem overwhelming but it doesn’t need to be. RYOBI have developed an amazing Gift Guide (you can find it HERE) that makes it so easy to choose the perfect gift! You simply choose who it is for, what they are interested in and your budget and … voila, they give you gift suggestions and tell you where your closest Bunnings is! RYOBI is available exclusive to Bunnings Australia and New Zealand, so you don’t need to wonder where to go to purchase!

What I like about RYOBI, is that they are so confident in their ONE+ tools, they back them with a 6 year replacement warranty.* Not that we have ever had a problem, and we use RYOBI tools at least 2-3 times per week. It’s good to know what you are covered if anything does go wrong with your purchase, just don’t forget to register on their website.

FATHER’S DAY GIVEAWAY!

To celebrate RYOBI’s new gift selector that will help you find the perfect gift for Father’s Day, we are giving away a RYOBI 18V ONE+ 4-piece kit worth $399.

The Ryobi 18V ONE+ 4-piece kit combines efficient power tools with handy accessories. Featuring a circular saw, angle grinder, impact driver and drill driver, it has everything your Dad needs to become the ultimate DIYer.

This kit comes complete with:
• 1 x 18V ONE+ drill driver
• 1 x 18V ONE+ impact driver
• 1 x 18V ONE+ circular saw
• 1 x 18V ONE+ angle grinder
• 2 x 2.5Ah lithium ion battery
• 1 x fast charger.

The 18V ONE+ 4-piece kit also comes with a nylon carry bag, so you can keep all the different parts stored in one handy portable location.

Happy Father’s Day, indeed!

Thrill-seekers – brace yourselves. Monster Jam® – the larger-than-life sport that always leaves you entertained – is heading back to Australian shores, and this year it’s bigger, better, faster and stronger than ever!

Returning for four action-packed shows across Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide, Monster Jam fans can expect to be brought to the edge of their seats with adrenaline-charged and gravity-defying four- wheeled entertainment.

WW3 (1)

11-time Monster Jam World Finals® Champion Tom Meents, driving Max-DTM, is set to lead the pack of world-class drivers including Australia’s only Monster Jam trained driver Rhianna Buchanan in crowd-favourite Wonder WomanTM and two-time Monster Jam Triple Threat Series Champion Justin Sipes, driving Megalodon®.

Standing nearly four metres tall and four metres wide, Monster Jam trucks are custom-designed machines that weigh around 5,500kgs. Built for short, high powered bursts of speed, the powerful Monster Jam beasts perform breathtaking stunts and can accelerate from 0-100kph in under 3 seconds.

Giveaway – Australian Shakespeare Company! Win tickets to Wind in the Willows, Alice in Wonderland or Tinkerbell and the Dream Fairies in Melbourne

We have teamed up with the Australian Shakespeare Company to give 3 lucky families tickets to go and see Wind in the Willows, Alice in Wonderland or Tinkerbell and the Dream Fairies in Melbourne.

Australian Shakespeare Company.jpg

We absolutely LOVE these shows, so much so, that they have become a tradition for the Kidding Around Australia family!

wind-in-the-willows

I can’t tell you how much we LOVE the Australian Shakespeare Company’s Wind in the Willows! This is a must do for the school holidays! For over 90 minutes, you will be entertained by all of the classic characters – Mr. Toad, Ratty, Weasel, Mole, Badger, Otter, Portly, Polly and the Head Chief Rabbit at the Royal Botanic Gardens as you watch them bring to life Kenneth Grahame’s famous tale about life on the riverbank.  The children (and let’s face it, most parents) are transformed into rabbits by the Head Chief Rabbit with a waggle of the ears and a wiggle of the nose and have a wonderful outdoor adventure!

alice-in-wonderland-image-2.jpg

Alice in Wonderland comes to life in the beautiful surrounds of Rippon Lea House and Gardens this Summer holidays, and all the crazy characters will be there! You can join Alice as she goes down the rabbit hole and follows the White Rabbit into the entertaining
and magical world of Wonderland. She’ll get taller and smaller, dance with the Dodo, talk with a Caterpillar, sneeze with the Duchess, have tea with the Mad Hatter, and keep her head from the Queen of Hearts.

This captivating promenade-style children’s production will keep your whole family enthralled and delighted. With acrobatics, singing, dancing, and riddles and rhymes, there’s lots of fun participation for the kids. Even the adults have to turn into cards and march behind the Queen of Hearts – or it’s off with their heads!

tinkerbell-and-the-dream-fairies-2017-full-cast-4

Children aged between 3-8 will love to follow Tinkerbell and her friends the Dream Fairies, from a Midsummer Night’s Dream, as she searches for her wings at the Athenaeum Theatre 2, in Melbourne’s CBD.

Together with Tinkerbell, the cheeky Mustardseed (who entices the most laughter from the young audience), fluttery Moth, daring Cobweb, sweet Peasblossom and little Dewdropcreate a flurry of fun and encourage all of the little fairies and elves to help them as they sing, dance and do some pretty impressive acrobatics before heading off on a special adventure to ‘Bubble Land’.

Travelling with Pets – Our 5 Top Tips! Win a Years Supply of Bravecto!

Sponsored by Bravecto®

If you are like us, you are becoming so busy with end of year parties, school commitments, planning for Christmas and organising a much-needed break for your family that you could easily forget protecting your furry family members!

I’d like to take a moment to remind you to think about protecting your dog from paralysis ticks and fleas especially as you may be travelling with your beloved pooch.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

To help you, we have put together our top 5 tips for travelling with your pets:

  1. PROTECT YOUR PET – Make sure your pet’s vaccinations are up-to-date, that they are fully wormed (including heartworm) and have been treated with Bravecto® for protection from paralysis ticks and fleas.

TIP #1: Make sure you take a copy of their vaccination certificates with you, vet notes if your dog has a medical condition and prescriptions / medication for the length of the trip.

  1. FOOD FOR THOUGHT – Dogs like familiarity so take an adequate supply of their regular food to reduce the risk of stress. We always take Duke’s food bowl although I am sure he’d eat out of any bowl without a problem!

 TIP #2: Limit food before long trips – you don’t want spew in your car!

  1. THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME – Make sure your pet is microchipped and your details are current so that your dog can be returned to you if they get lost.

TIP #3: We always write our number on the inside of Duke’s collar as well as having a name tag just in case the tag falls off.

  1. HOME IS WHERE YOU LAY YOUR HEAD – Take your dog’s bedding with you. They are always more comfortable in their own beds with familiar smells and it gives them a ‘safe’ place to go to when they want some alone time.
  1. LEAD THE WAY – Don’t forget your dog’s lead and a longer rope for when you are at camp if you think your dog will wander off.

TIP #4: Pack an old tent peg and a hammer to secure your rope.

Australia’s paralysis tick season runs from about September to March – the time when adult female ticks are most abundant, although this can vary region to region.

Duke the cocker spaniel

It’s because of this that Australia’s leading emergency veterinarians have an urgent warning message for dog owners – they want you to protect your dog against paralysis ticks or be prepared for the consequences.

Director and Veterinary Specialist at The Animal Emergency Service in Queensland, Dr Rob Webster said “Tick paralysis is a preventable disease. When we lose dogs, a terrible outcome for all involved, we are losing dogs that could have been saved by administering a long-lasting paralysis tick treatment. Once the paralysis from a tick bite has taken hold, even the very best we can do using tick anti-serum and supportive care is going to save 8 out of 10 patients. This leaves a large number of dog owners in the dreadful position where they essentially watch their dog die from a preventable disease.”

As you know, we use Bravecto® (which is the only oral chew to deliver 3 months flea and 4 months paralysis tick protection for dogs in a single dose) for our Duke. If you want to read more about Bravecto® or see Duke demonstrating how easy it is to administer, click HERE!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

We want your dog to be protected too, and since it’s the season of giving, we are giving 5 lucky readers the chance to win a year’s Bravecto® (4 packs per winner)!

LUNA PARK – Christmas in July Giveaway

THERE’S SNOW BETTER PLACE TO BE THAN LUNA PARK THIS WINTER FOR CHRISTMAS IN JULY

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

We had such a fun time when we visited Luna Park to join the Christmas in July celebrations!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

From 1st – 16th July, Melbourne’s most iconic amusement park is being transformed into a magical Christmas wonderland, with FREE admission for all, festive entertainment and a ‘sleigh’ full of Christmas decorations!

Alegría and Isaac loved dancing in the magical snowfall (it happens every hour) and squealed with delight when they spotted Santa from the top of the Ferris Wheel and had to rush in and see him!

Luna Park Santa.jpg

To fully enjoy the experience, you should grab your unlimited ride ticket and ‘skate’ the kids over to the outdoor (synthetic) ice rink. We would have been lost without our ride ticket – it’s hard for kids to walk around the park and not go on ALL the rides!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Luna Park will be giving away amazing Despicable Me 3 prize packs. For your chance to win, simply ‘find your inner twin’ in the wonky mirrors and post to #LunaLive. The minions from Despicable Me 3 will also be making an appearance every Saturday from 12pm- 3pm.

The Big Freeze Winter Festival is returning these July school holidays bringing a snow

We went along last year, and are looking forward to seeing how The Big Freeze has grown with a new home under the Big Top at Fountain Gate Shopping Centre from July 1 – 9, 2017. If you would like to read our experience last year click HERE.

This year the festival will also be divided into two areas – the ticketed winter
precinct featuring snow play, snowball toss, snowfall forest, winter village, snow
globe photo booth, polar bear slide, kids’ active challenge, circus skills workshop,
construction play, art’n’craft activities and the brand new snow slides (at two
different heights to allow more children to enjoy the thrill of the ride).

The Community Precinct will be free for the general public to visit and hosts daily
stage shows, activity zone with Phillip Island Nature Parks, sports with Milo, food
vendors and more.
