Ladybird Big Noisy Book - Skullabones Island: Yo-ho-ho Pirates!
Ladybird Big Noisy Book - Skullabones Island: Yo-ho-ho Pirates!
by Moira Butterfield
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 7.69

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun but disjointed, 12 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The sketchy storyline is not easy to follow for children and the characters are not easy to follow. names only appearing once or actions not fitting with pictures although the noises are fun. Personally, I would recommend buying something else.

Children love this from 9 months to 3 years old. The pictures are vibrant and the noises funny. Younger children love the pictures and noises whilst the elder ones like pushing all the buttons.

This is great, funny and entertains when reading to your child. Lovely pictures too. Take it further with Julia Donaldson's Tiddler.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not convincing, 12 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Was recommended this by a friend and although the pictures are great, it doesn't make much sense. My son was left a bit baffled and loves all the Julia Donaldson books (ie can understand appropriately). Get it second hand or buy Your Choice by Nick Sharratt instead which is fantastic from 18months to 4 years. Also Shark in the Dark is much better.

My son became interested in dinosaurs after watching 'Ice Age'. I got this to take things further and he loved it, at two and a half years old he could name all the dinosaurs in the book. The dinosaurs from ELC are great in taking it further still.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stove fan, 29 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stove Fan
Works well but initially we were not sure that it increased the warmth of the room as it had turned quite cold and we have a large sitting room. However with repeated use, we have noticed that the room does get warmer quicker once the stove gets up to temperature than previously without the fan. In a victorian house with high ceilings, it has made a difference. You can move it easily to another stove when cold. Not very noisy just a very little him.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lilla kuddis pillow, 17 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The cot pillow is basically a small version of an adult polyester filled pillow. It is bulky and so was only used during the day when baby was playing on back e.g nappy free time/on play matt. Unfortunately or fortunately I noticed she had slid down the pillow after 10 mins despite both head and shoulders on pillow. This could be dangerous in cot as she could have gone into bedding or a slightly loose sleeping bag I.e head opening as children flex knees and hips whilst sleeping. Have now bought Thermaline plagiocephaly pillow from babyReflux site - breathable if baby moves on to it, smaller so can be used in cot, mat or pram. Little more expensive but worth it as safer and more flexible use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal purchase with small child, 23 Jun 2011

Easy to use and accurate. Better not to waste money with mouth/auxillary (underarm) thermometers and go straight for these. No fuss and you don't wake your baby up fiddling around trying to take their temperature. Also give result pretty swiftly. Thoroughly recommend.
