Docrafts 30 cm Precision Ruler with Metal Edge Inlay
Docrafts 30 cm Precision Ruler with Metal Edge Inlay
Price: £3.42

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality ruler, 14 May 2016
The metal strip was not attached properly on one end, also the metal strip had a curved bump in it so couldn't cut straight lines with this, pretty useless. I have since found a better quality one at almost double the price but it is worth spending the extra.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, hope it lasts but button is sticking after being kicked a lot!, 6 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a lovely soother, a bit noisy as others have commented but if my son is really tired he will drop off no problems (he's 9 months old, would have been too noisy for newborn). The batteries last a decent amount of time, a few weeks as opposed to a few days - it does take 6 AAs but comes preloaded with decent ones and not demo ones. Downsides are it's a bit fiddly to attach to the cot, I like it attached to the wall side of the cot, also he likes to kick a lot and is quite strong - I noticed today the button on the front (the jar) is getting a bit stuck and so it's not coming on properly, will have to see how long it lasts now - shouldn't these things withstand a bit of whack from kids? Perhaps I need to drop him down a level on his cot bed so he's at the bottom and can't reach it with his feet but he likes to push the button to turn it on and can't stand up yet.


Tefal Natura J0337001 Baking Tray 38 x 28 cm
Tefal Natura J0337001 Baking Tray 38 x 28 cm

2.0 out of 5 stars Tray warps and is too soft when hot, 6 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have a similar Tefal tray bought years ago (went by the name 'patisserie' and has bumps on it) which was fine but the non-stick coating works less well these days. This one is similar but totally smooth (good as pyrex etc won't slide around as much), it's easy to clean and a good big size. However I forgot how soft the aluminium trays are and it does warp and is especially prone to distortion by the simple act of taking it out of the oven (it will stay with the lip pulled down on the side over time, with a well in the middle). Wish I had looked for a hard anodised non stick tray - they do exist but are double the price. I have a few hard anodised trays that aren't non stick, yes everything gets stuck to them- they were an expensive mistake. I like the fact that aluminium trays don't go rusty!


Gibsons Puzzle - "Gateway to Snowdonia" 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle
Gibsons Puzzle - "Gateway to Snowdonia" 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle
Price: £12.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice puzzle but ripped cello wrap - buying to give as a gift, not great, 6 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Purchased as a gift but the outer cellophane wrap was ripped in two places on the back (quite a large rip on the bottom part, but not enough for any puzzle pieces to escape) - disappointing as I would not have picked this one myself as it looks a bit tatty. BTW I own a few Gibsons puzzles and they are lovely.


Crayola - 12 Coloured Pencils
Crayola - 12 Coloured Pencils
Offered by Hellifield Office Supplies
Price: £2.94

1.0 out of 5 stars Packaging is damaged, pencils look fine - should these not be classed as seconds?, 6 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Crayola (Toy)
Bought these to go into party bags, but the packaging got wet at some point for all 5 packs that I bought (luckily that was the limit) and had print transferred from other packs where they'd gotten stuck together. Basically they look a mess and I can't use them as intended, the pencils inside are fine so it just means my son and daughter will have a lot of colouring pencils for years to come. Also running the expired Odeon cinema promotion on them (expired December 2014). Got the same pencils from a well known supermarket for the same price (with standard Crayola design on the pack and no promo) and less hassle.

1.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly poor quality, expected better, 31 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Awful quality, paint is thin and sanded through in parts, screws not screwed in properly. Will be looking to send this back, not acceptable at all, looks second hand as there are so many marks on it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Tacky looking and only one sheet, 31 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Couldn't see clearly from the picture that these are not glittery all over, they look a bit tacky and only 1 sheet supplied so not very good value for money. Bought some lovely ones from Lakeland last year for about £5 and they were far superior to these, there were lots of them and my 3 year old enjoyed 'sticking' them to our patio doors. Will probably not bother putting these up so money wasted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly versatile, 22 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great quality knife, surprisingly useful - chopping potatoes is much easier as the cubes release much more readily from the blade. Used generally for family dinners where chopping veg features quite heavily (no fancy chef style prepping). As it's new it's also super sharp so great for chicken etc where I use the front part of the knife more. I find it more versatile that the long french cook's knife that we have which is too long and cumbersome.


Recaro Monza Nova 2 Car Seat Black
Recaro Monza Nova 2 Car Seat Black

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality car seat but needs belting in when not in use as well, 22 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Decent build quality but a bit of a pain to use as we have to the strap the seat in to stop it moving about even when not in use, I think this is common for most car seats of this type though. Unfortunately we don't have isofix points in our car, otherwise we would have gone for the isofix version. Have not tried the MP3 speaker connection yet, although it will be useful and mean that whoever is driving the car no longer has to perform the role of DJ to our 4 year old too!


Casibel OW060BL Wall Shelf with Rim / 60 cm / White
Casibel OW060BL Wall Shelf with Rim / 60 cm / White
Price: £15.55

3.0 out of 5 stars Reasonable value for money, 22 July 2015
They are ok for the price but the finish isn't that great as some of the paint is not fully opaque parts. They only take 5kg in weight which is ok for a few bits and pieces in a nursery. Also they come shrink-wrapped without much protection other than the Amazon box, we were lucky this wasn't damaged in transit.
