*I received a box of Smooze Simply Coconut for the purpose of this review. As always all opinions are my own*
Imagination is the one thing that I fear the loss of most. Without imagination we have no place to hang out when the going gets tough. Having a 4 year old boy has opened up my world to a whole different level of imagination. Cars talk and everyone is a super hero.
I love listening to him play out scenarios with his toys. We bought him an emergency services house and the possibilities have been endless. Sometimes I cringe as I hear him acting out things he has heard one of us say. A ‘mummy car’ telling ‘daddy car’ that she’s had a hard day and needs a drink from the fridge. A nervous giggle as Paul and I realise how much he takes in.
I hope that never loses his imagination. I hope that his imagination allows him to lose himself in books and stories as he gets older. The imagination can be a beautiful thing, threading stories through our lives, creating memories as it goes along. Imagination lives strong in the Children’s movies, they don’t question a talking animal, a flying car or a man who can save the whole world.
It’s sad that we lose that ability to lose ourselves as we get older. I find myself enjoying movies but questioning the motives. I certainly don’t think we should constantly live in a world of fantasy but a bit of magic in our lives definitely couldn’t be a bad thing.
Summer is the height of the imagination period. Summer brings with it trips to the beach, adventures in the garden under the hot sun and running through the sprinkler. Summer is playing in the dirt with diggers and trucks, while Mummy enjoys a cold beverage. I can hear the stories he creates over the noise of the traffic going by.
A break in creation means an iceblock. A cold treat on a day where the sun is hot enough to cook an egg in the shade. One of Mr 4’s favourite treats is Smooze’s Simply Coconut icy treat. These babies are made with pure coconut milk so give the creamy taste of an ice cream with the lightness of an iceblock.
The coconut taste can be a little over powering if you aren’t a fan of coconut but Mr loves them. I usually have a few in the freezer to help him cool down after a hot day. The best part is they come in little cardboard containers (a bit like the trusty poppa) so they are easy for little hands to hold and less mess than other ice creams available on the market.
I love Smooze’s Simply Coconut Desserts so much that I have 6 boxes to giveaway to 6 lucky readers! I’ve had to hide them in my cupboard so that Mr 4 didn’t eat the prizes before I got a chance to give them away!
