Little Bean has been watching Youtube Kids on her Samsung Galaxy Tablet for a good couple of years now and loves nothing more than watching video after video of girls un-boxing dolls, toys, Lego . . . you name it, she has watched it. A while ago I remembered her coming to me with her tablet to show me these funny little dolls with big doe eyes and a big head on a little body which came out of a big ball. She was in awe of the little American girls who were gushing about their new LOL Surprise Dolls but at the time they were not available over here in the UK.
Then a couple of weeks ago I was told that they were finally launching in the UK and would Little Bean be interested in reviewing one? Haha WOULD SHE EVER!!!!
The package arrived a few days before Little Bean was due to sit her spelling test at school, something she shows no interest in at all so I suddenly found myself a currency for Little Bean that might just persuade her to work harder on learning her spellings. Her last scores had been around the 40-something mark out of 100 so the night before her test when I tested her at home, I was amazed when she scored 83/100!!! I challenged her, if you get more than 65, you can have the *LOL Surprise Doll. She scored 68!!!!
So the following day whilst the boys were out I gave Little Bean the unopened parcel and set the video camera up so that she could video it. As you can see, her years of watching YouTube videos have paid off, she had the script off to a ‘t’ on the first take. I could learn a thing or two about vlogging from my daughter . . . .
