5.0 out of 5 stars Secure, 25 Jan. 2015
If you are fed up with car mounts for mobile phones that will not stay in place and fall off, then this is a good product for you. I have not experienced any issues with it coming out of place at all. It grips extremely well.

This mount is compatible with many phones - with a recommendation of up to 3.5" wide. You just pull the arms apart and slot the phone in. It is possible to fit the mount to either the windscreen or to the dashboard - or pretty much any flat surface.

It is easy to stick the mount onto the windscreen, and once it is there it doesn't fall off.

When the phone is inserted inside the mount, it doesn't wobble at all which is great in my books. Most mounts I have used in the past have had the phone vibrating and wobbling slightly as the car moves. There is none of that with this product. The angle of the phone can be easily changed and it can be tightened to stay in the required position.

Overall, this is a well made and useful product that does the job as well as anyone could hope for. It also looks very smart.

I was sent this item to test and to provide an honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely project, 22 Jan. 2015
This was bought for my daughter who will be four in March. It's a lovely Lego set. She can't do it on her own yet (the set is advertised for 6-12 year olds), but with help from me or my husband she is quite able to put the parts together. It took a good amount of time to put together and we really enjoyed doing it together as a little project. It is worth noting that some of the pieces are quite small, so definitely one to play with away from young siblings.

Now it is complete, it is getting played with a lot! It's brilliant for her imagination.

5.0 out of 5 stars Encores!, 19 Jan. 2015
This review is from: Piano Encores (Audio CD)
This is a fab album! I bough Ji Liu's first album and was inspired by it - this one is equally as brilliant.

Quite often encore pieces seem to be full of technical proficiency but lacking more on the musicality front. Not so with this cd. Many of the pieces have very moving moments, and it feels like there is a lot of feeling and emotion in his playing.

There are lots of well known favourites on the album. There are some I've struggled to play in the past (badly), and they are all really lively with a sense of fun in the way they are played.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works well and is ethical, 17 Jan. 2015
I bought this for my partner, for Christmas.

It is a really nice shaving brush. It is also cruelty free, which is fab!

He says it is soft and feels nice on the skin. It works well and spreads and lathers the shaving cream well enabling him to get a really good, close shave.

Overall, this is a good brush, and it looks nice and works well. I was so pleased to find this brush which can be used without harming any animals.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for my partner, for Christmas.

It is a really nice shaving brush. It is also cruelty free, which is fab!

It works well and spreads the shaving cream well enabling him to get a really good, close shave.

The drip stand I am slightly less impressed with. It holds the brush ok, and is certainly functional. So in that respect, all is good. However, it is of relatively thin, see through plastic. In my opinion it needs taking care of, as I am not sure it would last for very long if it was handled heavily.

However, overall, he is really pleased with it. He likes it and it does a good job.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality, 17 Jan. 2015
This is a good set. My two year old uses it for every meal!

Although plastic, it has lasted really well. The bowl and plate get a huge amount of usage, three times a day, and they have only faded slightly. Nothing worth worrying about.

They have also been dropped regularly, with no breakages.

They are a good size for small children and fit the quantity of food quite nicely. I particularly like the plate because it does go up slightly round the edge, which is helping my little girl get to grips with self feeding with cutlery. She is t massively coordinated, so this helps her out a lot!...

This was a great purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Treasure at the end of the rainbow?, 17 Jan. 2015
The Amzdeal Rainbow Projector Night Light is a night light which produces a rainbow effect on the wall in the room when it is dark/night time.

In the box you will find:

* projector
* instructions

The projector requires 4 AAA batteries (not supplied). To insert them, the back simply needs unscrewing, insert batteries, screw the back on again.

In use:

The projector has two modes. One mode turns all the rainbow colours on at once. The other mode does them separately. To turn between modes a switch on the bottom of the projector has to be moved. The only other button on the projector is the on/off button.

The rainbow looks pretty on my little girls wall - she is a bit of a fan of rainbows at the moment - she is determined that there is treasure at the end of them!

The light turns off automatically after ten minutes of being on. It is easy to turn back on - my three year old can do this easily herself if she wants. The instructions state that you can plug the projector in - then it will stay lit beyond this ten minutes. However, the power cable is not supplied.

Overall, it is a nice projector light which for the child who takes ten minutes or so to go to sleep after going to bed is ideal.

I was sent this item to test and to honestly review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely doll, 17 Jan. 2015
My daughter absolutely adores this doll. She doesn't tend to play with dolls that much, but as a devote fan of Frozen, this doll was absolutely perfect. Elsa is of a good size - she is a perfect size for role play situations - we have picnics with her and put her in my daughters play pushchair.

She comes with shoes that are removable and Olaf is also included (poor Olaf has ended up in the dollshouse...). You also get a small hairbrush and a tiara.

Overall, this is a lovely gift for a young child who enjoys Frozen. Elsa and Anna are instantly recognisable and loved by many children - mine currently does not like going out without her Elsa doll. The doll seems to be well made and has withstood a fair amount of play without any breakage so far!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good and very sharp!, 17 Jan. 2015
The Taylor's Eye Witness soft grip shears are very sturdy and sharp scissors.

I have a pair with pink grips - thought I would have a girly moment upon purchase!... The scissors themself look and feel quite sturdy. The handles are big enough for me to get three fingers comfortably in to cut tougher things. They are comfortable in the hand. They are also very sharp!... Compared with the scissors I have been using (which were not particularly cheap) these are a completely different thing. They cut easily and quickly - my finger is proof of that. Ouch.

If you are looking for a practical and good pair of kitchen scissors then look no further. These work very well.

5.0 out of 5 stars We have had a lot of fun with this, 17 Jan. 2015
This was bought for my three year old daughter and she has loved playing with it.

The concept is simple. Each player gets a hand mirror shaped item. When it is your turn, you spin the wheel. What this lands on dictates the piece you can add to the mirror. Eventually you will have completely filled it in with pieces and have a whole mermaid with hair and seaweed included!

It is a very easy and straight forward game and it only takes about 10-15 minutes to play. My younger daughter (age two) is just starting to play it now with help, and it is lovely seeing the pair of them taking turns and playing a 'proper' game together.

Overall, this is a game that I am really glad we purchased as it has provided a lot of entertainment and fun for my children. It seems well made and fairly strong, even though it is made of cardboard material. Warning - it is important to make sure you pack away all the small pieces at the end of the game!
