So it's Christmas Eve and I just wanted to wish each and every one of you a Merry Christmas. I hope you've all won a nice surprise for yourselves, if not we all know there are always new opportunities just around the corner. I'm about to take a short Christmas break from the blog but I have one last giveaway for you before I go - this one is from me!
After worldwide success with its previous editions, Australia's favourite schoolyard spinning top phenomenon - BEYBLADE - is back with the new BeyBlade Burst brand, revolutionising the way its players fo battle with a new dynamic 'burst' feature and App.
The perfect stocking filler for under $25, Hasbro's BeyBlade Burst toy line is the next generation of one of the most popular toys of Christmas 2011.
The BeyBlade Burst brand is designed to bring more excitement to the original battle play. Setting the stage for suspenseful competition, players will 'battle for the burst'. The all-new dynamic 'burst' feature has been designed to bring battling play to new heights. Battling can trigger the interchangeable spinning tops to burst apart upon defeat - and with over 5000 possible combinations, striving BeyBlade masters can customise their tops to ensure every battle is epic.
Players can now also take the excitement of the BeyBlade Burst battle with them everywhere they go with the launch of the BeyBlade Burst digital App. Free to download, players can scan their BeyBlade Burst tops into the app where they can interchange components with other BeyBlade Burst tops in their virtual collection and battle digitally.
Not stopping there and as a sneak peak of what's to come, the BeyBlade Burst Starter Pack, BeyBlade Burst BeyStadium and BeyBlade Burst Epic Rivals Set are being released just in time for Christmas too. Now eager players can up the BeyBlade Burst battle ante with family and friends ahead of their official release in 2017.
Hasbro's BeyBlade Burst special release toy line is available at selected Toys R Us Target and Toy World stores.
DEEP WATER is a powerful new Australian drama with a stellar cast, as seen on SBS TV.
When the mutilated corpse of a young man is found in a beachfront apartment in Bondi, Detectives Tori Lustigman (Yael Stone) and Nick Manning (Noah Taylor) are assigned the case. Is this brutal murder a domestic, a robbery gone wrong, or a gay hate crime?
As other ritualistic murders occur, they discover the killer is using THRUSTR to entice his victims. Anyone using the App is now at risk, and it's a race against the clock to catch the serial killer before he strikes again.
With mounting evidence to suggest the perpetrator has killed before, Tori and Nick start digging through old investigations. The discovery is shocking. They uncover up a spate of possible murders of gay men that took place in the 80s and 90s in Bondi – unexplained deaths, ‘suicides’ and disappearances. Many of these killings were linked to gay bashings by youth gangs, a blood sport that went largely unpunished. Haunted by the disappearance of her teenage brother, Tori’s fascination with the case soon turns to fixation.
As they meet more victims from the uninvestigated past crimes, they become convinced that the current killer is somehow connected. In reopening the cold cases the detectives reveal the hidden truth about the past murders and uncover critical evidence leading to the serial killer. In doing so they finally give closure to the victims’ families by bringing the killers, both past and present, to justice.
The Most Useful Beach Bag Ever Made
Think about the last time you went to the beach. I bet it involved lugging a bunch of uncomfortably large, hard-to-carry objects down the hot sand - maybe you even had to take two trips from the car. Well let me introduce you to the SeaSack. The SeaSack is a beach bag/backpack that makes lugging and storing awkward, sandy beach gear quick, clean and painless.
I received my very own SeaSack to test out and pleasantly surprised at how much of our beach luggage could fit inside - like all of it. Beach chairs, towels, sunscreen, beach toys, goggles, it all fits in the SeaSack. Plus there's a water-resistant pouch to keep your smartphone safe from splash and sand. But the best part was having two free hands to hold onto my little ones and stop them from taking off into the ocean without me.
The SeaSack is not just for beach goers, it will come in handy for a variety of other activities including concerts & camping. It is available in two colours - Sea Blue and Navy Blue, and comes in two sizes - regular, perfect for couples, and XL, perfect for families.
