World of Warriors and a world of packed lunches ! (review)

Have you settled into the back-to-school routine yet? How about your kids' packed lunches? Have they started getting routine and boring too? Well, World of Warriors to the rescue !

If you don't know World of Warriors yet, it's the latest offering from Mind Candy, the creators of the well-known and well-loved Moshi Monsters. It's a fun interactive game that takes you to the Wildlands, where you can build an army made up of warriors including Vikings, Romans and Knights - which meant that Pierre was in his element when we visited a multi-era reenactment camp at the weekend and it was just like a real-life game of World of Warriors !

Pierre was delighted to receive a fabulous back-to-school pack including a backpack, lunchbox, snackpot and drinks bottle, as well as an activity pack. I was just as impressed by the Warrior Meal Plans, which provide a whole school week's worth of fun, kid-friendly and healthy lunchbox ideas.

Each one is introduced by one of the Warriors, so they will really appeal to fans of the game - but I quite fancy eating them myself too !
