Are We Nearly There Yet?: A Family's 8000 Mile Car Journey Around Britain
Are We Nearly There Yet?: A Family's 8000 Mile Car Journey Around Britain
by Ben Hatch
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoyed this book EXCEPT....., 17 April 2012
The book itself is great - I love the combination of British sites, toddler angst and the author's general commentary on his family dynamics. I loved the conversations between the two adult characters, and enjoyed reading about familiar cities and the "joys" of travelling with tots.

However, I felt the book was really let-down by all the swearing... the bad language didn't make things funnier, the book would have read more intelligently and been more enjoyable had it been left out.

A good read overall.... but would have been great if rated PG!

5.0 out of 5 stars BRILLIANT! Action Contraptions!, 17 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We bought this for our 6yo boy who absolutely loves it. Instructions are easy enough for him to follow with the exception of some of the more fiddly bits which we help him with. Each contraption is brilliant and does what it's supposed to. The language is a bit "American" but not enough to be misunderstood. We especially love the grabber. I will definitely be buying another one for a present...!

I bought these so I didn't have to fret about pointy ends etc. They are perfect, arrived speedily, cut paper brilliantly and are rounded at the ends. Exactly what I needed, many thanks!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous prints - a little bit funky!, 14 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these notecards so as to always have something on hand to write thank-yous etc. I'm thrilled - each design is a little bit quirky - all different with lots of retro beauties. Envelopes are dark yellow with a white space to write the address. Good value for money (price per card) and this would also make an excellent gift.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nifty!, 20 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This food processor is perfect for us! It's compact so it doesn't take up more than its fair share of space in the cupboard, and it's not too big to put you off bothering to get it out. So far I've used it for chopping veg, blending soup and mixing cake ingredients. We are a family of four and because it's smaller, I have had to do a couple of things in two batches because of the compact size. This is no trouble - if you were doing it by hand you'd only do one veg at a time anyway.

It chops, grates and blends perfectly, fits in the dishwasher easily - basically does exactly what it says on the tin (box!).

I'd would recommend this to a friend in a heartbeat. Perfect nifty and useful kitchen gadget. Five stars!

The perfect story for tots - our 1 year old is enthralled and loves the flaps. Just the right length, colourful illustrations and a joyous ending - a childhood must-have.

3.0 out of 5 stars Love the book, but this is a different version...., 31 Jan 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
...We bought this book after borrowing it from the library. The end pages of the library book were a monkey, and then children who review all the pages. BUT this version when it arrived had a teacher instead. Which would be wonderful if it were to be read in a classroom, but makes less sense at home. Otherwise, it's a firm favourite - rhythm and rhyme a big hit with the tots and the pictures are bold and colourful.

1.0 out of 5 stars They would be great if they fit...but they don't!!!, 31 Jan 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These boots are great quality, beautiful colour, nice and plain without fussy seaming or anything. However, they simply don't fit right... there seems to be far too much leather and space around the ankle which results in the whole thing sagging down either side of the top of my foot, looking truly bizarre. I was really sad about it because they would have been the perfect boots for me otherwise.
