EDEN PROJECT WITH MR BLOOM

EDEN PROJECT WITH MR BLOOM

There is something so special about the Eden Project. It doesn’t matter how many times you vist, the atmosphere is always the same; excitement, curiosity, awe.

On our last visit to Eden, we signed up for year long passes, and oh boy are we glad we did.

Every season there is something different to see; from live music, to ice skating, to a whole range of indoor and outdoor activities for your little ones to take part in.

Hands up whose child is a fan of Cbeebies! This week we were lucky enough to go on a day where we could see Mr Bloom.

Prepare yourself for a very picture heavy post.

The Eden Project is one of those places you could happily potter about in for hours. Although no rides, or slides or parks, there is so much to see and even the most boisterous of children (Evie) seem to enjoy it.

As soon as we arrived we headed straight to the first showing of Mr Blooms performance (check out our Instagram page for some videos!). He was absolutely brilliant. He sang songs from all of his shows, introduced some ‘baby’ veggies and entertained the audience for nearly 40 minutes, which is plenty when you have wriggly toddlers in tow.

Much to the delight of the audience, at one point he even let off some balloons and got the audience to shout out the colours and then the vegetables they could name that were associated with those colours.

It was a lot of fun, for parents and children alike. Evie absolutely loves Cbeebies, Mr Tumble, Mr Bloom and Andy being her top three favourites. We’d told her who we were coming to see and she was really excited.

Evie is so sociable, in fact usually overly sociable, so we were fully expecting her to try and shout to him or speak to him. Much to our shock, when he came out on stage she seemed to go into a state of shock and ran back to us to cuddle in. We finally coaxed her to stand up and watch but she wouldn’t leave our side with out taking her favourite bears to cuddle and soon ended up hiding under Mummy’s hat and sitting on Daddy’s shoulders!

So strange but so cute!

After the performance we went for the most delicious lunch in the restaurant that’s situated in the Mediterranean Biome. There are loads of places to eat in Eden, but this is quite new to the Project. The menu is made up of of foods all inspired by the Mediterranean and it is so hard to settle on just one dish!

How delicious does it look!

After lunch we had a quick potter about the Biomes. One thing that we didn’t get to do last time was the new(ish) canopy walk, where you can walk above the trees.

The views from the top of the canopy walk were so spectacular. It was really surreal to see how vast the Biome is from above and truly shows you how amazing this project is.

We don’t get much family time anymore so it was beyond lovely to spend the day together and we managed to snap so many cute family pictures which is such a rarity.

Evie has such a funny personality at the moment. Aside from the moments when she’s having tantrums, she loves to have a giggle and to entertain, always pulling faces or trying to be funny.

She is certainly not camera shy and scarily has started to ask for pictures when we are out. I guess that’s what being a bloggers child does to you!

After the Biomes we headed outside for an ice cream and to explore my favourite part of Eden; the Avenue of Senses.

There are so many pathways with different textures, musical instruments carved from wood, sand pits, ponds and a plethora of beautiful plants to see. It was such a great way to finish the day.

    The Eden Project is on my long list of things to do when we finally book a two week holiday in Cornwall with the kids. I haven’t been with them. Anywhere with Mr Bloom is going to get full marks form me too for a day out.

    I’ve never been to the Eden project but it looks lovely and definitely child friendly with a visit from Mr Bloom! Still don’t quite get the mum crush though! #whatevertheweather

    The Eden project is top of my list on our next trip to Cornwall! This looks so fantastic – I love the sound of the new restaurant too (totally not what I should be focussing on – must be hungry!) I know Max would have loved Mr Bloom too – they should make him a regular feature! #whatevertheweather

    I must get to Eden again soon. I haven’t been for 8 years now, Keira was just 19 months last time we went and she is 10 now! I love the biomes – it’s such an amazing place Sarah #WHateverTheWeather

    The Eden project looks amazing! We’ve never been to Cornwall, but I would love to go. It looks fab for kids (although think I’d be more impressed by Mr Bloom than Finn!) I hope the Cornish tourist board are paying you-everytime I read your posts I want to visit! #Whatevertheweather

    Every time I see a post on the Eden Project I long to visit, it looks amazing. The show looks great fun and I love the look of the canopy walk – looks like you had a lovely day out x

    My dream place to visit! I always wanted to see the familair (to me) tropical plants! This post made me want to visit it more! #whatevertheweather

    I had to look up who Mr Bloom was on Youtube purely for research purposes after you’d mentioned him. I knew about Mr Tumble but Mr Bloom is a new one on me.

    I think I’ve been to the Eden Project but it was so long ago I feel it’s time to go with the family. #whatevertheweather

    How funny you got to see Mr Bloom! We’ve never been to the Eden project but I’d love to go! #bestandworst

    We visited the Eden Project at Easter (I must find time to write about it!) and really enjoyed it – toddler tantrums aside! I first went in the year after the Project opened so it was really good to see it looking more established. We also made it to story time in the Medetarreanian biome – I was really impressed. We also enjoyed lunch at the restaurant there. Not cheap but very tasty! The events programme is amazing. We also got annual tickets and must try to get back for a special event! #whatevertheweather

    Very good info. Lucky me I ran across your blog by chance (stumbleupon). I have saved it for later!|

    Aww… Evie wish came true! I love Mr Bloom – I have a crush on him actually. haha Eden project is so cool. I’ve been there for my architectural design training camp once. It was great fun. But that was a long time ago. Evie looks like she was having a ball! The Mediterranean cuisine looks so yummy and I would never thought of putting rice on a plank of wood and not on a plate – looking so so tasty! Thank you for sharing your experience with us and thank you for hosting too. 🙂 x

    I’m jealous of how close you live to the Eden project, it’s an amazing place and I would love to visit. Evie is adorable and looks so much like you. I know what you mean about those tantrums though, Mr A is exactly the same at the moment and it’s hard work. But the cutesy silliness always makes up for all the screaming! 🙂 xx

    Oh how lucky are you!
    I love Mr Bloom.

    I’ve never been to the Eden project but I’ve always wanted to, even more so after reading your post!
    It looks like a wonderful place to take the kids.

    Thanks for hosting and sorry its taken me forever to comment xxx
