Fuzzy Felt 60th birthday pack

‘Funky Lunch’ book

Mysterious Ban Dai package…

As you know, we get lot’s of cool and lovely things sent our way at MFM, so it would be a crime (and greedy) not to share it with our lovely readers.


First up, us ladies were treated to a bundle of gorgeous lipgloss and lip creams from the lovely people at Lanolips. These lip soothing wonders come in rose, apple, sunshine, dark honey and rhubarb shades and make you look totally kissable. Packed with vitamin E and natural oils, these stylish tubes leave your lips feeling soft – you can’t help but pout!

The pack also includes a tube called, ‘101 Ointment’ which is a multi-purpose lovely that can be used for anything from lips, dry skin to chapped nursing nipples! The Lanolips gloss cost £7.99 each and the ointment will set you back £10.99. These gems aren’t available to buy until September 26, so get on the waiting list here.

Another fab package that made its way into our office was a gift from the Fuzzy Felt press office. The age old fave made us go all nostalgic as it hits its 60th birthday, and to celebrate, the John Adams and Toy Brokers company have released a ’60th Anniversary Celebration Set’ – and we have one to play with! 

The anniversary pack includes a whooping 500 pieces of felt to play with and tons of original Fuzzy Felt shapes. It costs £13.95, buy it here!

For all the parents of fussy eaters out there, this little book of funky sandwiches may just be the answer to your food prayers! We managed to snag a copy of the fab Funky Lunch book by dad-of-two Mark Northeast. We previously reported on his imaginative sarnies last year, and since then, they have literally caused something of a lunchbox frenzy.

The Funky Lunch book was born and contains 35 tastebud tingling lunch ideas for all the family featuring everything from a tuna filled caterpillar to a cucumber backed crocodile. Our faves include the cheesy alien and pitta bread crab! A definite for the new school term – make sure you bag a fab new lunch box to put them in! The Funky Lunch book is available here for the bargain price of £4.96.

Keep an eye out for MFMs exclusive review of the book soon…


Last but not least, we received a huge red box containing a mysterious package from Ban Dai. With no note or explaination, we were stumped when we set our eyes on the red, rubber helmet. Anyone who has a clue what it is, do let us know! And yes, we did try it on!
