Fun at Butlins with Scooby Doo Ice Creams!

Last week we had a family first, we visited Butlins Bognor Regis for a day. All in the name of ice cream! A great way to start the Summer Holidays!

Chester and Millie were very excited, they had seen the adverts on TV and wanted to see what it was all about for themselves. It was a long 2.15 hours drive, but it was totally worth it. They didn't stop smiling from the moment we arrived!

Beechdean have launched a new range of Scooby Doo ice creams, Honeycomb, Chocolate and Strawberry. Which was the main reason we were invited to Butlins. But whilst we waited for the event to start, we had a little time to spare to go and explore the fairground.

Chester and Millie are both little daredevils and they both wanted to go on the biggest rides! They made me go on a very fast spinning ride and as we needed one adult per child a Butlins employee was only to happy to help! Never come across such kindness at a fairground before!

Soon though it was time to learn all about the new Scooby Doo Ice Creams. Which Chester and Millie were really ready for, as it was a really hot day!

As I mentioned before the Scooby Doo Ice Creams come in three flavours, it would of been rude not to try all three right?! Funnily enough we all had different favourites. Chester loved the Honeycomb, and he made it clear that he did not like the crispy bits in the chocolate on the other two! Millie loved the Chocolate, I am not surprised by this, she is just like me, really loves anything chocolate. I liked them all, but I loved the Strawberry and White Chocolate. I really love that flavour combination. The Ice Creams can be purchased from Toys R Us or from independent retailers and have an RRP of 0.90p. Taking into account the flavour and the size of the ice creams I would call that a bargain!
We then had a little fun dressing up. Well the children dressed up! They absolutely loved it! Both wanted to dress up as Scooby Doo and Millie also wanted to wear a wig, in fact she spent a lot of time in that wig! You can take part in a Scooby Doo selfie competition, the prize is a trip to Butlins. Plus everyone who enters gets £20 off a Butlins Holiday! You can find out more info here .

We then got to watch the Scooby Doo show, which is new to Butlins this season. Chester and Millie absolutely loved it! They joined in with the everything and I 'got' the jokes and nods to the Scooby Doo show I watched as a child.

Lastly I met up with Leta (Attachment Mummy), as always it was lovely to see her (and Steve) and have a catch up, which we did whilst the children were on some more fairground rides!

It was just a totally awesome day! A big thank you to Beechdean and Butlins for having us!

So come on..... who watched Scooby Doo as a child?!
