4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice, 26 Feb 2012
Very nice idea for anyone who is interested in travelling. The film is easy to scratch off to reveal countries you have been to. The map comes in a very nice cardboard tube with tissue paper inside to prevent the map from being scratched during transit. That said, however, great care must be taken when removing the map from the tube as it would be easy to scratch any of the gold off. Also, you must be really careful when scratching off the countries as it's sometimes not that easy to see where two countries border and once you scratched off the wrong area there's nothing you can do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value, 1 Jan 2012
This really is a no-brainer as battery choice for Canon 550D users, at almost half the price of the genuine Canon item it delivers as much energy.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a laugh!, 1 Jan 2012
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:2.0 out of 5 stars 
A genuine must-have for any Star Wars fan with a total of 5 famous sounds emitted from what seems to be a surprisingly powerful speaker for its size. The keyring is, however, likely to be too bulky for use on house or car keys for everyday use.

Hot Dog Costume
Hot Dog Costume
Offered by Fancy Dress Discount Store
Price: £17.92

2.0 out of 5 stars It would be OK, but..., 1 Jan 2012
= Durability:2.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:1.0 out of 5 stars 
It's Wednesday night and the hot dog costume has been ordered for use at a party on Friday night. To ensure it arrived in time, next day delivery was selected, which as it was late Wednesday night means it was guaranteed for Friday delivery. Friday came and there was no delivery and on Saturday afternoon I received an email stating the delivery would be delayed because of a reason I was not informed of. The costume finally arrived the following Tuesday.

Although not tried on, the costume appears to made of a fairly cheap looking felt-like material with a lack of padding, which according to the packaging is to be done by the wearer with newspaper acting as the padding.

All in all, late delivery and a generally poor product left me disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the money, 1 Jan 2012
It will almost certainly seem like a lot of money for what is essentially a small note pad with a sticky strip at one end. However, it's the great quality of the pad that soon becomes apparent which shows value.

I bought these Post-It notes for use with revision, and with each 'note' the right size to jot down notes for certain topics, they are perfect for this application. Along with this the adhesive strip means you can stick it to a wall or above your desk for you to refer to when revising.


Gavin And Stacey : Complete Series 3 [DVD]
Gavin And Stacey : Complete Series 3 [DVD]
Dvd ~ Mathew Horne
Price: £9.05

5.0 out of 5 stars TV entertainment at its best!, 1 Jan 2012
Both series one and two of Gavin and Stacey were great, in fact they were fantastic! Series three had a lot to live up to but has not failed to deliver an impressive set of episodes.

The only bad thing about series three is how much it makes us want a fourth series which is said to not be happening. Buy it, you know you'll love it!


Canon BG-E8 Battery Grip for EOS 550D/600D/650D Digital SLR Camera
Canon BG-E8 Battery Grip for EOS 550D/600D/650D Digital SLR Camera
Price: £119.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Vast improvement, 30 Dec 2011
The BG-E8 offers a much better grip on the 550D than without it. Also, the ability to take portrait/vertical shots much more easily with the replicated controls is a very nice feature. Whilst the two batteries, if genuine, will provide power for a staggering amount of shots, it's handy to have the option to use AA batteries when you run out of power.

I would definitely recommend this to any 550D user.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sleek and stylish!, 22 Dec 2011
I received this watch today for my birthday, having had a part in deciding which one I wanted. First impressions are great. Do not be put off if you think the clock face is too big for your wrist; I don't have a particularly large wrist and it fits perfectly. The watch has an 'expensive' look about it.

The three dials display the day, date and where the time is in a 24 hour system. The blue dial is striking yet not too flashy to wear on your wrist every day. The slimness of the watch is very impressive and when compared with other watches looks really slim and much better looking.

The real leather strap is comfortable and soft with a cream backing. There are quite a lot of holes on the strap to fit wrists of all sizes. It should also be noted that glass seems very clear which also allows the time to be viewed at from an impressive number of angles.

This really is a watch which I can fully recommend and one which you will be very happy with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little tripod!, 20 Aug 2010
I am a photographer who specialises in automotive photography. I enjoy taking photos of cars at night. However, to achieve this I need a tripod. I wanted a tripod that I could fit easily in my back pack. I first looked at the Gorillapod SLR Zoom. Whilst this would fit in my bag it would need to be used on a tree, a lamp post or really low off the floor. This would be too low for the photos I want. So I decided to get this tripod, its around half the price and can be used in so many other places. Although still quite low, at 64cm maximum height, its fine for the street, landscape shots and many others situations. It fits easily in your backpack and is easily assembled and is sturdy. I would definitely recommend this tripod, especially at this price!

5.0 out of 5 stars The 550D is absolutely fantastic, its just incredible!, 3 Aug 2010
I have had the Canon EOS 550D for a couple of months now and I have simply been blown away by its performance. Before this DSLR I had a P & S camera which I felt it limited my photography skills with a lack of adjustable settings. The screen is absolutely amazing with more pixels than any other DSLR at the time of writing. The kit lens is very good providing sharp photos every time even in low light conditions. It is lightweight and just the right size to have around your neck. Buttons are easy to press and nicely arranged around the camera. I would fully recommend this camera to anyone wanting great photos.
