The boys were super-excited to try this out because: a) we are moving to London in just under 4 months time; and b) like most four-year-olds, they love chocolate. So all-in-all, this was pretty much a hit before it was even delivered.
THE WICKED UNCLE WEBSITE
As I said last week, I really loved browsing through the Wicked Uncle website. It was simple and straightforward to use – and they deliver to BFPO addresses, which is a major plus!
The website has so many amazing gift ideas, and will definitely be a first-stop for future birthday pressies for the boys and their friends.
What do you get in the Melt & Make …. Chocolate London set?
- Chef’s Hat – very popular with my boys, as you will read!
- Chocolate buttons – more than you need which is a major bonus!
- London moulds (including Big Ben, car and a London bus)
- London scene to colour in
My kids love to bake, cook and create things. You may have guessed that already from the blog. They were so excited about this as it was so very different to anything we had done before. They had so much fun melting the chocolate. The hardest part though was making them wait for the moulds to chill in the fridge.
Construction of Chocolate London
Once the chocolate was ready for construction the boys were very excited. We spent a fun afternoon, melting the remaining chocolate and building the structures. It didn’t take long, however, for the boys to devour the chocolate. They did share with mummy and I have to say the chocolate was lovely and creamy. Very tasty.
L was also very taken with the chief’s hat. He wore it everywhere for the whole weekend – to his first proper football match, to brunch, to dinner and to the park. The hat was a surprising and pleasing additional hit!
I am beginning to think that everything we order from the Wicked Uncle website is going to be a hit with my two. The kids have adored both products we have tried so far. I have to say, I have loved them as well. They have been fun to make, educational and – particularly with Chocolate London – incredibly tasty!
I would love to know if you have tried this product. Let me know what you think in the comments.
