It's fun having the collectable range and this one give more to do. Little girls will always love brushing hair, but the ponies could be larger.

THese little ponies seem to have got a lot smaller than when my daughter was a child. The colours are bright and my granddaughter likes having two ponies together.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great kitchen for a boy toddler, 27 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This all-singing and dancing cooker looks very good and attractive to boys and girls. Big enough for several children to play with at the same time. I bought it for my 3 yr old grandson and I think likes it despite not having peppa pig on it.

Price: £21.80

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic good quality toy cooker, 27 Mar 2014

My granddaughter loves it. The rings make a good sound and look good, and there is room inside, although the overall size is surprisingly small. Seems sturdy enough to withstand a baby brother, which is mainly why I bought it.


Rainbow Through the Rain
Rainbow Through the Rain
by Geoffrey Scott Mowat
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Eye witness account of the fall of Singapore and survival on the Death railway as a Japanese prisoner-of-war, 1 Feb 2014
Geoffrey Mowat was a junior official in the Malayan Civil Service when the Japanese invaded Malaya in December 1941 and swept down the peninsula. Married for only eighteen months, he and Louise were parted as Geof joined his Volunteer battalion to defend Singapore and Louise took a job with the American HQ which was to place her at the very heart of Allied resistance in MacArthur's chief of staff office. Geof's daring bid for freedom is gripping and his relationship with local people is reflected in this humorous and objective account.
His capture and imprisonment with spells later on the infamous Burma-Siam Railway is clearly recounted with many poignant references to characters both famous and unknown whose companionship and kindness were rays of hope amid the degradation of the prison camps. The story is closely remembered and written from his journal kept in Changi prison and later typed on the return journey after liberation in 1945.
His story and Louise's are separate but thrillingly reunited and his journey of spiritual awakening is a thread which colours his recollections with a human sympathy and pity for all who suffered so terribly in that Far Eastern conflict. This is a story well worth reading and keeping for those moments when you reflect on life's meaning. It is also part of the wealth of records which were kept both during the war years and which came out as literature thereafter, which will teach future generations about WW2 in Asia.
