We pushed the boat out last Sunday to give our daughter the Moshi monster themed birthday party she wanted for her 10th. If you haven't got pre-teens you may not have heard of the Moshi phenomenon - I hadn't until recently. Apparently "One child every second signs up to Moshi Monsters, the fastest-growing children's gaming site in the world". It has made it's British London-based creator, Michael Acton Smith, a young multi-millionaire - you can read more about him and it, here.
After a mad search for all the dressing-up bits, including some help from Twitter in searching for face paints in Eltham, and big thanks to my mum-in-law for sewing and e-bay sourcing, and all-round wonderfulness of husband, we managed to present 'Elder Furi' (my daughter) and 'Zommer' (my son) - picture above! I think a good time was had by all. Happy birthday to our double-digit daughter (*sobs*, they are growing so fast...).
