Looby Lou DesignsThe launch of Sky Go at the Soho Hotel in London turned out to be a fantastic end to the school holidays. Not only did Frida have her face painted, nails done (me too I should add) , take part in a craft demonstration by Looby Lou and meet Mickey Mouse she also got the opportunity to play with an iPad –  I am sure you can imagine the joy of a five year old granted access to an iPad whilst lounging on a sofa, choosing which television programmes she would like to watch. 

Sky Go offers the choice of live content from eight children’s channels, including Cartoon Network, Disney Channel and Nickelodeon. This service is available to Sky TV customers at no extra cost with the Entertainment Extra pack.  There are also Sky sports and news channels amongst others that can be accessed. 

I can see how Sky Go would be useful  to parents who might need something portable to entertain a child whilst travelling; stuck at an airport or hospital, or when the weather outside is miserable. The only problem I can envisage is having my iPad taken over by Frida!
Whilst at this event there was a table set up by Looby Lou Designs. Frida and I got a chance to make the Spring Fairy Canvas. This was such a lovely activity, and we both enjoyed it.  Looby Lou has put together Canvas Kits (suitable for 5+) and contains everything needed to make the magical fairy picture.  It comes within a bright yellow bag which too can be embellished. 

The kit contained beautiful fabrics; skeleton leaves, hand dyed silk ribbon, special sparkles and flowers, a spot of glue and magic fairy dust. Other Canvas Kit themes were a Pirate one; Dinosaur and other fairies. 

I will definitely order some kits to use as gifts.
