As I’ve mentioned before, we are finalists for the MAD Blogging Awards and the Brilliance in Blogging Awards in the Video category. Fellow bloggers will know it can be difficult to find time to commit to your blog and social media channels (especially if you run a weekly Linky too!), but we do try to add videos to our YouTube channel as often as we can, and always try to do fun things which involve all of us. I wanted to share with you some fun I had with my girls making a video about the revamped Mr Frosty toy.
It has been said that you shouldn’t work with children or animals, but one thing is for sure, I enjoy making videos for the blog with my cheeky little monkeys! After all, its a family and lifestyle blog so the more I can involve them the better :-).
With the recent warm weather, we decided to take the opportunity to make some frosty frozen treats when we were sent the new Mr Frosty toy to try out. The girls had a lot of fun, particularly Bella of course as she can be more involved.
Here is our video:
We all had a great time, especially when we got to try the treats at the end! LOL I really love involving them as much as I can with the blog. It’s a great way of having fun and ‘working’ at the same time! 😉
I hope that you like it!
Did you have a Mr Frosty when you when young? Will you like to relive this experience with your kids? Will you get one for your kids? Leave a comment below as I would love to read what you think.

Thanks for stopping by,
Love you all ❤️

I always wanted one of these as a child! This has brought back memories!! I remember someone saying that they can chop your fingers off (lol!!) so I was never allowed one (pretty sure that’s not true!) #KCACOLS
Lovely. Yes, I always wanted one when I was younger and never got one!! I used to think my parents were sooooo mean! Ha ha. We will have to buy one to atone. x#KCACOLS

I always wanted a Mr Frosty when I was small and when I got one I was made up. The reality of crushing ice compared to the advert took the shine off a little. Still remember the old ad! “And a squirt of flavour from Percy Penguin. Thank you, Percy!”.
My Petit canard says
Loved watching yours and Bella’s review of Mr Frosty! I watched your vlog with Ella for the first time and she absolutely loved watching it with me too 🙂 Great review, I remember having a Mr Frosty when I was little too, it was the toy of the moment and everyone wanted one I remember. So lovely to see a toy like this come back, I wouldnt have known if I hadnt see your review either! Emily #KCACOLS

Oh I remember Mr Frostys! I really wanted one growing up…this version looks good. You look like you had a lot of fun! All the best for the awards lovely…I can’t imagine committing to making videos, running a linky AND finding time to write, read, tweet etc. Amazing
Aww this takes me back to my childhood!! Love your videos, it looked like such a fun thing to do together 🙂 Good luck in the awards lovely, I always amazed how much you do with youtube, linky and blog as well…I’m rooting for you! Thanks for hosting #KCACOLS xxx

Ohhh I am so jealous! I spent my whole li wanting a MR Frosty and I never got one! I have held it against my parents for the last thirty six years! Looks like fun, maybe I should get one for my kids and I can re-live my youth! I’m always scared it wouldn’t live up to my expectations now but this does look great! #KCACOLS
Cheryl @ Tea or Wine says

Sara Skillington says
Such a lovely review from you and Bella 🙂 I remember Mr Frosty but I didn’t ever receive one! It looks like a really fun thing to do. Really good luck with the awards. You have my vote xx
Aw, Franca your daughter is so adorable and you can tell that she genuinely enjoyed this toy. Looked like it was a little difficult to crunch the ice but if the kids are happy, mama’s happy! Lol. I wonder if this is available in Canada?
Baby ISABELLA says
My mummy would have loved to have a Mr Frosty when she was younger. Might have to put this on her summer wish list! We love unboxing videos too! #KCACOLS
Laura @ Mama, Eden and Me says
I adore Mr Frosty! Remember the ad from when it was first out? “Mr Frosty is such fun, he makes drinks for Everyone!” #KCACOLS
Oh I had a mr frosty and loved it, can’t wait to use it with my kiddies when they are enough! #KCACOLS xx
Me encanto el vídeo del hombrecito de nieve para raspadilla típico de los 80 ‘s

Carol Cameleon says
I have never had a Mr Frosty but they look like a lot of fun! Now you need the sun to keep shining. Although we frequently have lollies when the sun’s hiding! 😉 Thanks for hosting #kcacols

Harry's Honest Mummy says
I had one of these very briefly as a kid. I remember saving up for it and within a few weeks of having it I’d broken the handle that you use to grind the ice. I was heartbroken! 🙁
Sarah Ella (Mumx3x) says
Oh wow! Blast from the past, haha. I didn’t have a Mr Frosty personally but my best friend did, we use to have a great time 😀 Goodness, I had no idea they still made these, I love it! 😀 xx
Rachel (Lifeathomewithmrsb) says

Mommy's Little Princesses says
Oh this does indeed look like fun…. No I never did have a Mr Frosty when I was younger. It looks like Bella really enjoyed Mr Frosty. Such sweet pictures of you and Bella! Xx #KCACOLS
Perfect snippet of family life, I love little lady saying Freezer….she is a pro. Hehe takes some arm muscles to break the ice up..I had one as a child..lots of fun memories! You are amazing to do a video so well with the kiddies, I attempted and Leo just went…no I want to watch a movie. Thumbs up! #KCACOLS
tracey bowden says

Silly Mummy says
How sweet! Looks such fun! I never had a Mr Frosty, and am actually not that big a fan of ice lollies, ice cubes or ice cream. But I bet my little ones would love this! #KCACOLS
Nadia - ScandiMummy says
I’ve never seen a Mr Frosty before, maybe we didn’t have them in Denmark. Great video, your girls are such stars and I love your facial expressions at times 😀 #KCACOLS

I was just talking about Mr Frosty yesterday! I was totally addicted to slush puppies as a kid, and Mr Frosty was in constant use in the summer 😀 #KCACOLS
