To celebrate Roald Dahl Day we thought we’d share some of Roald Dahl’s Revolting Recipes, that despite the title, sound honestly quite splendiferous! They’re all inspired by the whimsical world of Willy Wonka and his magical chocolate factory. And what’s more, tonies® has the ultimate soundtrack to your ‘Dahl Day, with the launch of their new Tonie, The Witches.
