Kids’ Club Review by Kimberley: Where is Strawberry Mermaid Moshi?

Where is Strawberry Mermaid Moshi?, by Moshimoshikawaii

I like this book because I need to find strawberry mermaid moshi. On the first page it says meet the moshi and her friends. There are so many more. It is very cool. There are some more on the 2nd page. On the 3rd page, you have to find strawberry mermaid moshi and bride moshi and accessories. You need to find 8 moshi on each page. It is very tricky. If you can’t find it, you can skip the page. Can you find strawberry moshi?

Kids’ Club Review by Kimberley: The official collectable figures guide

The official collectable figures guideThe official collectable figures guide, by Richard Dinnick (1968-)

I like Golden Star because I like golden. I also like glow in the dark ones because they are so cool. I like the poodle dog. Some of the collectables are no longer available. I also like bunnies because they are so adorable. That makes me want to have a bunny but I only have dogs. I also like the Christmas person. I wish I have this book.
