We are almost half way through January now (the days seem to go quicker even though they say that the Earth is rotating slower!), but I'd like to throw back to Christmas as Abby has received an awesome present that she's wanted for a while - the Num Noms Lip Gloss Truck (suitable for 3 years +, RRP £29.99)! Not only because it's Num Noms, which is one of her most favourite collectibles, but she can make her own lip glosses and use them to nourish her lips, which are always chappy, so it really is the perfect gift for her!
Look at how happy she is? And look at how big the truck actually is! The whole packaging and how they feature all the parts make it look really good and we actually sat staring at every detail for a bit before we took everything out. And then the kids fought (on Christmas day!) because Abby refused to share with Clay. She absolutely loved it and want it only for herself (it is her present after all). I don't blame her, but now Clay is asking us to get him another one (it's a no)!
We almost forgot to check out the ultra rare special edition Num - Cherry Scoop that came with the Num Noms Lip Gloss Truck! It's as cute and smell as yummy as all the other Num Noms, but we agreed that the Noms are definitely the focus here. And the ingredients for making the lip glosses!
The Num Noms Lip Gloss Truck is the cutest ice-cream truck! The wheels do turn, and there are 2 seats for the Nums to sit, so children can role-play with it as well as making their own lip glosses.
The decorations on the top of the truck aren't just for the cuteness! The removable cupcake is where you will mix the lip gloss with the flavours and glitters, and the bunny can be removed to reveal the piping compartment, where you will put your mixed lip gloss in to pipe it into the lip gloss Nom containers.
For making the lip gloss, you will need the lip gloss that comes sealed in a pink tub, the Noms lip gloss containers, the glitter shaker and the 2 lip gloss squeezy flavourings - cherry and vanilla. Everything is just so adorable!
To make your own lip gloss, simply mix a scoop of lip gloss, flavouring and glitter in the cupcake container, and use the cherry cocktail scoop to stir. Scoop the mix into the piping compartment, place an opened lip gloss Nom container underneath, and press the bunny stick into the piping compartment to squeeze the lip gloss out in a swirl pattern.
You can also scoop the mixture straight into the lip gloss Nom containers of course.
Make sure you don't make a lot in one go as the lip gloss Noms can only hold a small amount in the container, and you need even less on your lips. So the tub of lip gloss will last for a good while!
It's very easy to clean everything, either wipe it down with a wet wipe, or use warm soapy water to wash the containers. Each of the ingredients has its place inside the truck as well, so it's very easy to tidy everything away for next time, and it look so good!
We love everything about the Num Noms Lip Gloss Truck! The only problem I have is that for the first time, the kids want one each!
Although Christmas is over, I think that the Num Noms Lip Gloss Truck will make a great birthday present as well. We had so much fun with it, it's definitely value for money!
