We spent a delightful Sunday of family time at the Titanic exhibition. Although the exhibition is not as spectacular or sizable as the Tutankhamen one was it is certainly more than worthwhile to visit. Not for very small kids though - they will simply be bored. I would say about 8 upwards. Until this Sunday in Joburg and in Cape Town from 22 November. The highlight for the kids were finding out if they survived - you get a boarding pass at the door with "your" details on and in the last room of the exhibit the full list shows. We had a 3/5 survival rate - better than the less than 1/3 of the real event.
here , here and here) we had the Lego city one last year and the kids very peacefully took turns in opening the windows. See I feel it is too much money to buy one each and sharing is a great skill to have. So we do it this way. This year I pre ordered the Lego Star Wars one but the website where I ordered it sent me a notification that they at the end did not receive stock from Lego. So we went to our favorite toy shop - and no Star Wars one to be found. I took showed them the Lego City one and the Lego Friends one - fully knowing A would love the friends one but the boys not. Well did my boys surprise me - C said they had the City one last year that was mainly for the boys so surely we can have the Friends one this year. He gave his condition (he wants the bunny in it) and L gave his condition (he wants the hockey sticks in it) and that was it! I am hoping come December we will still have consensus on this.
Oh and I forgot that we took in our Santa Shoeboxes - every year I am surprised at the joy the making of these bring to us all.
