What better way to do that than to fill a blog with all of the cutest animals that make you want to snuggle?

So get cosy with a blanket and a cuppa and embrace the cuteness to follow.

An interview with Anthony (The pink lilo man) from the #DrummondPuddleWatch phenomenon

Hi Anthony, it’s an honour to be speaking to you. After all, you were, temporarily, the most famous man in Britain after jumping in a puddle with a pink lilo…

When you woke up on that fateful day did you have any idea what the day would hold?

Literally no idea. Wednesday is always hump day and normally the worst of them because the weekend is still just too far away. Luckily the puddle came to the rescue on that rainy day!

Where did you get the lilo from considering it’s the middle of winter and you’re in the north of England?

Hahaha this seems to be the question everybody wants an answer to. Truth is we have the biggest props cupboard at work everything from lilos to Santa suits we’ve used in promotions. Everything you need for a night out in Newcastle.

How has your life changed since the Drummond Puddle phenomenon?

Win a Remote Control Inflatable BB-8 from Star Wars – The Force Awakens


We are giving you another chance to have exciting adventures with the newest member of the Star Wars Droid family. First we gave away the BB-8 Sphero and now a remote controlled inflatable BB-8! This toy can roll in any direction, and, just like the films, his head stays on top of his body! The level of detail on this toy is amazing and unlike other BB-8 toys out there this one is an impressive 43cm in height… that’s bigger than Yoda’s trusty Gimer Stick!

He is simple and easy to control with the remote control, he makes up to 14 different, realistic and expressive sounds as you drive him around. The great thing about him being inflatable too is that when you’re not exploring together he can be folded down to a size that’s convenient for travel or storage.

He’s a must have toy for any Star Wars fan of any age!

  • A fantastic toy for kids and adults of any age!
  • Official Star Wars Force Awakens Merchandise
  • Makes 14 different unique sounds
  • Control remotely with the control provided – no apps needed!
  • Once inflated BB-8 measures aprox. 43 cm in height
  • BB-8 requires 4 x AA batteries and the control requires 2 x AAA batteries (not included)
