Myla the Magical Unicorn

Unicorn Toys

I got Myla as even though she’s made for kids ages 4 and up, I thought it looked really cool!

Requires 4 AA and 2 AAA batteries. Batteries included for demo purposes only, new batteries recommended for regular use.

Myla uses color recognition technology for multiple, brush onto one of the 16 colors in the pallet, then touch the brush to the part of Myla you want to light up with that color. It’s magical to watch— even my mum and sister wanted to give it a try. (A tip: When selecting a color, be sure the entire top — the sensor —is flat against the pallet and within one color.)

Myla has five modes, which you can rotate through by pressing the gem on Myla’s necklace. In all five modes, Myla’s head moves, her eyes blink, and she interacts with fun phrases and sounds.

Four of the modes focus on color. “Magical makeup” mode is basically free play where you can get creative while doing Myla’s makeup. Things get a bit more educational in “magical color creation,” which encourages kids to select two colors and see what new color they create. In “amazing makeup powder” mode, Myla will instruct you which feature she wants to be colored, and it’s a race against the clock to apply makeup. “Lucky color” is the simplest mode: Press Myla’s back sensor, and she’ll tell them their lucky color (like a rainbow Magic 8 Ball).

Things get musical for the fifth and final play mode, called “showtime.” The magic doesn’t stop with Myla’s makeup brush — she also comes with an interactive microphone. When Myla’s in showtime mode, kids can hold the microphone below her mouth to hear her sing a catchy, original tune. Pull the microphone away and the music keeps playing, but Myla’s singing stops so we can duet.

In addition to her interactive elements, Myla has plenty of tactile play features. You can practice plating her mane (which is conveniently made up of three strands, each with a different texture and color), brush her tail, and put a crown on her horn. She also comes with fun accessories to share, including colorful hair clips and bows.

My Fairy Garden Unicorn Garden Review

My fairy garden review

With this  Fairy Garden playset you can create a magical home and garden for the fairies, the mouse and the Unicorn to live in.

The set comes with everything you need to create the garden, including grass seeds and purple cress. The only thing you will need to purchase is the compost, luckily we already had some but compost can easily be bought at a garden centre or even your local supermarket.

Mum had a quick look through the instruction booklet so I knew what we needed to do, and the first thing we needed to do was add compost to the the fairy garden bowl so mum went and fetched the compost bag and we both added the soil into the bowl together, patting and smoothing it down with my own garden trowel.

Then we added some of the coloured pebbles that came with it and sewed the seeds.

We had to build the bridge and put the seat in the little cute caravan and put stickers  on the string to make the pretty bunting.

The grass and cress grows really quick but you have to keep it watered and it might be best to put outside because our soil went mouldy so we had to start again and used our own seeds, it’s nice for playing with it’s pretty and it teaches you about gardening so I liked it a lot.

9 Kids Unicorn Yoga Poses

Unicorn yoga

I just love yoga and you already know I love Unicorns so here’s my yoga and Unicorn combo!

Unicorn Ellie Kids Yoga Poses

9 Easy poses you can do in a small space.

I did this in a small corner in our living room. My mat is quite long so it’s folded in half and it was extra squishy.

You need loose clothes you can move around in so a Unicorn onesie is PERFECT!

  1. Pick a quiet place to do yoga, and focus on breathing in and out through the nose.
  2. Hold the poses from 5 to 10 seconds. Since it takes time to get into the postures, counting should start once you are in the posture.
  3. Slowly increase the time spent in the poses once you get better at them.
  4. Try to eat lightly before doing yoga, as you don’t want tummy ache.
  5. Have FUN together as a family me and mum sometimes do yoga together.

1. So I always start by sitting quietly in easy pose

2. Bowl Pose or Bow Pose to stretch out your tummy and legs and neck at the front

3. Downward Unicorn pose to stretch the back of the legs and back and make strong arms

4. Then I stand tall like a tree with a unicorn horn point on top to balance and stretch my whole body its usually easier on one leg than the other I wobble sometimes

5. Make a bridge with your body there are a few ways to do this this is how I did it today.

Make sure you put your bottom up this was too low here.

6. This one always makes me and my mum laugh really stretches you legs and back and you can balance your legs in the air or see if your toes can touch the floor above your head then its a plough pose or bend your knees and hold your toes then it’s a happy baby unicorn!

7. Make a triangle with your body triangle pose try and look up to your hand do it both sides.

Unicorns in Harry Potter

In the book and film Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone, there is a very important comment about unicorns. It made me sad as I would want any unicorns to get hurt or die!

Here it is below:

Firenze: “Harry Potter, do you know what unicorn blood is used for?”

Harry Potter: “No. We’ve only used the horn and tail hair in Potions.”

Yes, even Harry Potter and his fellow students at Hogwarts used parts of Unicorns for magic.

There are so many other books available which mention unicorns, and in some, the unicorns are the main characters.

What books have you read about Unicorns?
