We were very kindly asked by Hannah who works with Kurtzy if we would like to review some of their products, we of course said yes! I really liked that they had a massive selection of creative items in their store, ran through Amazon. One thing I noticed instantly was how low in cost they all were - I was interested to know if this would reflect in quality.
We chose 3 baking trays, Alphabet and numbers plastic cutters and 10 cardboard picture frames. We were spoilt for choice but I decided to go with some items that meant the boys could get involved. On first glance I was really impressed with everything that was sent, everything was packaged well and felt very sturdy. I noticed there was a mark on the front of one of the frames which I assumed was glue but I wasn't too worried about it as I have a plan which includes decorating them anyway - this will be shown in a separate post soon!
We've been pretty unlucky in this house with Freddie catching Chicken Pox 2 days before the Autumn half term, but I realised it would be the best time to throw ourselves into some activities within the home until he got better. Baking always seem such a great idea especially as the boys can really get stuck in. I decided to go with a shortbread mix (as it's incredibly forgiving!) and let the boys have a go at rolling out their own and generally have some fun making biscuits - got to really put them to the test!
I'm really happy in our choices. Everything is really good quality and endured this very messy task. The boys were very excited about writing their names, rolling out the dough and chucking flour around - I really thought I was going to cringe all the way through the activity but they were really sensible with the whole thing. There was definitely a feel of the boys thinking it was play dough which made for some laughs!
The trays we got were non stick so it was super easy to pick the biscuits up and pop them on the tray to cook - and they clean very easily which is music to my ears! The only problem we encountered with them was that the largest tray was too wide for our oven which is really unfortunate, so we're unable to use it but we decided to keep it as a tray for parties and any other activities where a tray may come in handy!
The cutters were really good and I was really impressed with how easy they cut into the rolled out dough. As they were thick plastic I wasn't worried about the boys catching their fingers, they are a good size so made for easy gripping for little hands. It did take some time to get them the perfect thickness so that they could be easily transferred to the trays without splitting - but that's just the fun of baking!
Best thing of all they took next to no time to cook - they got eaten just as quick!
