Playmobil 5435 Summer Fun Family with Camping Tent

5.0 out of 5 stars Creative & Fun, 15 April 2014

Bought this for my 3.5 year old grandson. A bit difficult to set it up, but he has had hours of fun using the for countless ideas to role play on his own, and especially with a grown up. I highly recommend it.


The Great Gatsby (Wordsworth Classics)
The Great Gatsby (Wordsworth Classics)
by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Edition: Paperback
Price: £1.99

5.0 out of 5 stars The glamour of the 20s in the East Coast life of rich America., 5 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is a must read amoung the classic titles. Written in 1920s, it is as modern as any contemporary novel. In spite of the expected differences in plotting and vocabulary, it is a timeless piece of work, and so cleverly written. It keeps you on your toes throughout despite the potential predictability of the theme. I am glad I have read it again.


Consequences
Consequences

Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Love, loss and survival over three generations, 5 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Consequences (Paperback)
Engaging, and interesting, but rather flat, although the narrative becomes really interesting when it reaches the third generation. I did mnot dislike reading it, but would not rush to read another work by the writer.


Period Piece - A Cambridge Childhood
Period Piece - A Cambridge Childhood
by Gwen Raverat
Edition: Paperback
Price: £8.79

5.0 out of 5 stars period novel: an academic equivalence of Downtown Abby!, 12 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an enchanting autobiography written by the granddaughter of Charles Darwin about growing up within a relatively wealthy but open minded academic family in Cambridge in the late 19th Century. It is a circular read as each chapter can be read independently. The drawings are all by the writer, adding to the witty description of her life in the immediate and larger society at the time. This book was recommended to me by a man of literary standing as “an academic equivalence of Downtown Abby”!
I fully enjoyed reading it.

Julia Darling portrait of a family in trouble is beautifully written, with empathy, humour and insight. A light read but full of wisdom, hope and warmth. I fully recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent collection, 9 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Borrowed this from local library, and purchased it after my 2 year old grandson wanted to watch it again and again! All stories are superbly presented. The images, background music and the narratings are all of high quality. It is very appropriate for this age group, and perhaps older children. I love watching the collection with him, and have noticed an expantion in his vocabulary. An excellent addition to your home library.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must toy for girls & boys, 3 May 2012
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: UKIC Doll's Folding Buggy (Toy)
Bought this durable easy to fold toy for my granchild. He loves it, and uses it indoors and outside, and although the pushchair is sometimes treated like a cart, it is an important part of his daily play. I have in the meantime seen a lot of parents/grandparents using a similar toy for their sons/grandsons.

GreyMobiles Screen/LCD Scratch Protector For Nokia 6700 Classic

3.0 out of 5 stars screensaver, 3 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The size was perfect for my Nokia classic, but found it difficult to put the film on the phone, and difficult to remove the lable from the film. Had to throw it away in the end!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting teething rattle., 3 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very interesting teething rattle. My grandchild loves it. Not so easy to have the beads in his mouth straightaway, but likes it overall with its bright colours and the rattling sound. The two handles help engagement.
