Horrible Histories Awesome Art Set
Horrible Histories Awesome Art Set
Price: 11.24

4.0 out of 5 stars Great kit for grandparents to have around the house., 13 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A good starter art kit. Washable pens and paint and lots of different activities in one box. There is enough here to keep a couple of children busy for a holiday / half term, and the box does not take up much room so is quite transportable. It would also be great to get out on a rainy afternoon for a larger group of children. A great resource for grandparents to have stashed away. The set is great as it is completely unisex, a bonus these days as it seems quite rare.
The only negative about this box is that you are getting what you pay for. The felt pens and paint are not top quality, so I would not buy this for any serious art/craft makers. But on the whole I feel this set is very good value for money.


ChapStick Original and Strawberry Tent Card - Pack of 10
ChapStick Original and Strawberry Tent Card - Pack of 10

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product, but you may not need ten!, 13 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Chap stick is the best known lip salve and I think the brand leader. It does its job well. This pack comes with 5 plain and 5 flavoured chapsticks and with ten sticks in the pack has enough to share around family and friends. Buying in bulk brings the price right down to just over 1 a stick which is good value, but only if you use chapstick a lot or keep losing them. Unless you are going to share them with other people this pack may prove to be a false economy.
However the chapsticks themselves are excellent and do a great job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Experience, 13 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have used many internet security packages over the years with very mixed experiences. So far, (fingers crossed) this has been the best. I am rating this based on my computer use experience. I have an oldish, slowish lap top and my biggest frustration is having it slow down to run security checks whenever it is most inconvenient. This one does not seem to slow the lap top at all, and I never notice it running. I have had no security issues, I get warnings about web sites every now and then and it seems to be working well. For me the best thing about this programme is that I never think about it. It is completely invisible in the background.

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality, duff design., 13 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is not a hoodie. However it is a good quality well made “zipped sweatshirt jacket”. It fits well, is not skimped, the quality of the fabric is good. It washes well. It is very warm and comfortable. I enjoy wearing it. However it will never win any fashion prizes. Stylish it is not.

Scholl Velvet Smooth Pedicure Overnight Foot Mask 60 ml
Scholl Velvet Smooth Pedicure Overnight Foot Mask 60 ml
Price: 7.49

4.0 out of 5 stars lovely to use, 19 Jun 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This was a lovely cream to make feet feel soft and look lovely when going out somewhere special in strappy sandals. I would definitely use to make my feet look lovely on a special occasion and during the summer months. Feet feel lovely and soft and smell nice with this cream. However this is not a miracle foot repair cream. Your feet need to be in good condition as it cannot work miracles. You would probably need to have a good foot care routine in place already to have perfect feet. For unsightly cracked heels etc you will need something stronger and to put in a bit of work. Not a miracle cure.

Obersee Kids Pre-School All-In-One Backpack with Cooler Bling Rhinestone Star
Price: 25.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Quality, 19 Jun 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a very good quality robust rucksack. It is light and just the right size for a child entering reception/infants at school, or for a similar aged child on a day out. It has an insulated section so a packed lunch will stay cool. The straps fit properly and safely on the back so it will be comfortable for wearing all day on an outing. Its pink and sparkly, but not tasteless. A good quality rucksack that should last a little girl for a long time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 19 Jun 2014
This review is from: Galt Giant Floor Puzzle Farm (Toy)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A very robust and good sized puzzle which my friends 4 year old quickly took to. The really good thing is that a lot of the main animals and the tractor are in one piece so the child can play with them before putting in the puzzle. Its a good size, slightly larger than a piece of A1 paper and strong enough for a small child to jump on after completing for the third time in a row! The carry case is also very good so the child can be encouraged to tidy away.

Case Logic BOGD115K Griffith Park Backpack for 15 inch Laptop - Black
Price: 55.13

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent back pack, 19 Jun 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This rucksack is a very secure, light and comfortable making it ideal as hand luggage on a plane and great as a day pack. The main compartment allows for carrying a laptop and includes a drawstring, water resistant top which then has a cover with clips over it. Being able to secure compartments with a padlock through the double zipper heads is reassuring and also an immediate deterrent to opportunist thieves.

It is very comfortable to wear with back pads which help keep your back dry and cool as the rucksack is kept from being directly on your back. The straps are simple and quick to use to adapt for different users and different weights. There is also a chest strap which helps when the rucksack is full and you have a long trek.

Finally the rucksack is colourful without being garish and in very robust fabric which is easily wiped clean. It would not look out of place on a trek or running around town as a laptop carrier.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable read., 21 May 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A light-hearted anecdote filled account of some of the madness that goes on in the art world. Not too in-depth to scare off the casual reader, but enough detail to keep the interested reader happy. This book is full of what were to me jaw dropping facts and figures. It confirmed a lot of my pre existing prejudices about the modern art world, but gave me some insight into what goes on and a bit more respect for some aspects. This is probably a book for someone with a more sceptical attitude to modern art. I enjoyed it and learned a lot, and now feel I can hold my own at a dinner party conversation, or when wandering around a gallery. Worth a read.

Revellutions 1:14 scale RC Dust Rider Buggy

3.0 out of 5 stars very power hungry, 21 May 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Important – this does NOT come with batteries. Most things these days that need batteries come with a set to get you started. This does not, so if you are buying this for a gift, buy a set of batteries at the same time. The car is not easy to set up from the box. The instructions are not clear and easy and though this car is advertised as 8+ I would recommend an adult to help and decipher the instructions. Once up and running this is a powerful energy hungry car, so we had fun with it for a while, then the batteries ran out. This makes it quite an expensive toy to keep running.
It advertises “wireless computer connection for use with the revellutions online game” but I never managed to make sense of the instructions to enjoy this feature.
