Little Dreams Can Come True

A lot of bloggers have big dreams. It may be to get a book published, or a fantastic holiday to review. It could be to get a post in a national newspaper or be featured in a magazine. Mine was to get a Merlin Pass for the whole family. And I am really excited to say that for 2016 I have been chosen as a brand ambassador and have achieved my little blogging dream of having a family pass.

You see? My little clan love adventure. We are best when we are together as a unit of four having fun. At home we go stir crazy, we love to be able to run around, jump on rides and see amazing things together. The Merlin pass is ideal for us as it features some of our favourite places that we have visited over the years.

The benefit of having a pass is once you have paid for it? Then you can use it as many times as you want over the year. Whether it be pootling up to CBeebies Land with a toddler mid week, or spending a weekend over the summer holiday having an adventure in the amazing LEGOLAND Windsor waterpark. You can just jump in the car...and go go go! One of our plans is to spend a few days in London and visit all the attractions on offer there such as The London Eye, Shrek and the new Star Wars exhibition at Madame Tausauds.

As it's January and the time to be thinking about new adventures for 2016, Merlin have decided to reduce the pass for a month in an exclusive sale. This means a family of four, like us, could save up to £200. Which is pretty bloomin good. So if you are a family that is best whilst screaming on a roller coaster or gazing at a starfish you may want to go and check out the Merlin Annual Pass exclusive sale.

We plan to vlog and blog all of our days out so that you can see if they are suitable for your little ones please go and check out our CBeebies Land video below that has had almost 50K views so far. And if you want to find me at any point this year? More than likely I will be sat with a pile of bags watching my husband ride round and round, screaming with glee. He's worse than the kids.

    1. Ah yeah I suppose you have to look at it over the year don't you and work out if you're eventually going to save money. I may ask for Christmas money towards it for 2017! x

  5. Oh wow! How jealous am I! hehe. We invested in Legoland passes last year and they were just the best purchase ever - we must have been at least once a fortnight until it closed for the season but a Merlin Pass? That would be like the cherry on the top! I cannot wait to see all the adventures you guys go on this year. Happy New Year lovely x

  6. I didn't realise how much you got with a family pass - it looks absolutely amazing. Thank you for letting us know about the sale - I'm SO tempted. We'd love to do all these things and I know the kids would have the best time. I'm a little jealous of you all, but it's so well deserved. Can't wait to check out your vlogs of your upcoming adventures. Enjoy!

  9. Congratulations! I like the idea of a merlin pass, especially as there seem to be lots of places for us to visit in London and Surrey. My family are like you, we love a bit of adventure and never want to stay home. x

  13. Well done on being an ambassador for Merlin. We had our Merlin passes for 3 years and we LOVED them. We built our holidays around the attractions, staying in £29 a night Premier Inns. We had so much fun with them and saved a fortune. You are also based in a great location in Midlands for visiting most of the attractions. Looking forward to hearing and watching your adventures xx
