Craft Time Mosaics: My Pretty Jewellery Box review

This week we were sent the Craft Time Mosaics ‘My Pretty Jewellery Box’ by toy company Brainstorm Limited to review. Now you’ll probably know I’m not exactly a huge fan of crafting. It’s messy and creates a lot of pointless stuff that I’m not allowed to throw away, but this …

A review of Lottie and Finn dolls
