Perfect present for my three year old niece who loves Ice Age. Extremely high quality and so soft! Highly recommended.

When you first see the box, you see that the box is actually really sophisticated - none of the typical 'Barbie pink'. She looks much better in real life than in the pictures. The doll is very well jointed, much more so than a regular Barbie, which makes her more fun to play with or easier to pose if you're going to be displaying her. It even comes with a stand to display her on - it's a pretty good one and you can't really tell it's there! The detail is phenomenal; everything from the mockingjay pin to those awesome boots and even the bows! One thing I will mention is that it is very hard to get her to hold the bow. It comes attached to her hand with ugly bulky plastic, which I removed. Now I wish I hadn't because I have to physically tie the bow to her hand with thread and it rarely stays in place for long. Also, the day after I brought it, amazon took over a third off of the price which was both disappointing and annoying. However, it's a lovely doll, not too 'Barbie' like and actually looks very much like Katniss in the film so I recommend it for both Hunger Games Fans and Barbie Collectors :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Impressed, 10 Jan 2013
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:4.0 out of 5 stars 
A must-have set for any Sylvanian Collector, the motorcycle and sidecar's design is actually based on vintage British motorcycles! The motorcycle is very versatile, I think it adds a lot of play value to your Sylvanian collection as there are endless games you could think up to play with it! Every time you look at it, you notice something new because it has so much detail. Along with the (absolutely adorable) maps, driving licenses and motorcycle club membership cards, the top-box on the back of the motorcycle and the storage in the front of the sidecar have plenty of room for a picnic lunch, books, anything you can think of! My daughter played a game where they went camping with the motorcycle and stopped at a different 'place' every night. The figures included are very unique looking and well made, with really fluffy tails. The helmets and goggles are just too cute ;) Highly recommended, only bad thing is that is was a bit of a nightmare getting it unpacked! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Love them!, 7 Aug 2012

I already have several pairs of Converse, so when I saw these sale, I brought them straight away! Gorgeous pattern, they look so nice. And as with all Converse shoes, extremely comfortable (once you wear them in!). Great casual everyday shoes that goes with almost everything. Really, really brilliant quality, will last for years! The pattern is really unique, it's a nice change to the usual plain coloured Converse. You will really stand out for the coolest shoes if you buy these;)

This ruler was excellent..for a few weeks. One day I opened my pencil case to find it had fallen apart. I should of expected it really, it is a bit of a 'gimmick', but I would expected to last a bit longer! Good quality plastic though, just needs to have a better hinge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great!, 7 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is brilliant, just what I needed for my daughter to organise her bits and bobs when camping, because her bedroom compartment is tight for space. The pocket size is perfect for a range of items such as books, pencil cases, notebooks, etc. Would recommend, as it is a great space-saving organiser! Perhaps a little expensive for what it is though, however it is excellent quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely set!, 10 Jan 2012
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This set is great value, you sort of get three baby beds and a play-frame in one because of all the different ways you can set it up! Excellent quality, and would highly recommend minus a few niggles:

-The blanket are difficult to tuck in/look presentable without a baby in, with a baby, it's impossible
-They are too high for some rooms in certain houses when used as a triple bunk
-No pillows are included

Other than that I am very pleased!

5.0 out of 5 stars A nice toilet!!, 10 Jan 2012
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This toilet is really cute, love the additional accessories like the toilet brush. It's high quality and good value. The patterning around the bowl is quite Victorian and realistic! However the lid falls down quite a lot of the time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great!!!, 10 Jan 2012
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
A really lovely chair, a must-have in my opinion! The little table is adorable and the tea cup and biscuits are so sweet. The chair itself is beautifully made and the perfect 'Sylvanian' shape, personally I find the usual sofas a little small for them usually! The only niggle I could find is that although it looks lovely and padded, the armchair is rock hard! It does not have any cushioning at all, it's just fabric over hard plastic. This was a slight disappointment however it does not change my opinion. Other than that, I highly recommend this high quality product.

When I received these, the background of the fabric on the chairs was not in fact the nice white shown in the picture, but a slightly dingy beige. The flowers are very, very difficult even for an adult to try and put together and arrange. However, they are good quality, the pattern on the fabric is nice and the pretty cushions are a nice touch. A good price, too.
