I love my slow cooker but am lazy! I don't tend to brown off meat etc. I just tend to throw everything in and switch it on! I am on a mission to use up everything left in the cupboards and freezer and managed to find enough to make this sausage casserole.
Sausages chopped up ( which I did brown off as they are not pleasing to the eye otherwise)
I spent my epoints recently and got 'Tiddlywinks' and 'Jacks'.
I am putting them away for Christmas 2015!

After much debating my husband and I decided to get this for our daughter's 5th Birthday. She had only asked for a zoo, a pink guitar and a Frozen doll! It was pricey and that was our concern, great if she was going to enjoy it and play with it. A lot of money if it was going to be a two second wonder!
We managed to get ours for £85 from Very in the end which was a bit cheaper than other places.
It is extremely sturdy but it did take hours to assemble - probably longer because all of our children wanted to help and were keen to play with it!
It is large and takes up quite a bit of space. We cleared the kitchen work bench so she could play with it easily.
She was very excited to discover that the animals heads, legs and tails all moved and had much fun with the 'mummy and baby'. Her elder sister helped her by pretending to be the attendant on the gate, charging them and letting her characters get into the zoo! All of our children aged between 5 and 11 had a great days play!
There are lots of tiny tiny pieces, so if you have really little ones it would be best to put it out of reach. Lots of little nose and ear sized pieces, if you get my drift!!
So keen were all the family to play with it that they even climbed on to the kitchen worktop to get nearer!!
Overall we are very impressed with the Playmobil Zoo and would be happy to recommend it.
