1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't fit bowl., 2 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Doesn't fit rim of bowl, with large clip on the longest setting it is still too tight and flexes off when you sit on seat.

3.0 out of 5 stars Expensive, 2 Nov 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Expensive for what they were. Drum sticks fiddly for small hands. Shakers and castanets went down well.

Offered by Viskey(From HK, 15-35 days delivery)
Price: £0.94

2.0 out of 5 stars Stick, but not baby proof., 2 Nov 2014
They stick well enough, but my ten month old thinks it's a fun game to unclip these before opening the drawers. He can do the three on the drawers in his nursery in about 10 seconds, so no use to me.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not screw fittings, but bayonet with adapters., 9 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Beware the P+P on these, and mine were not screw but bayonet, with adapters, which was not what I ordered, as a result the bulbs stick out like sore thumbs...

2.0 out of 5 stars Neither front nor back stop the mud, 11 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The fitting instructions are poor to non-existent, the rear is pretty self-explanatory, but the front less so, I ended up finding a YouTube video, full of comments about the lack of instructions, and the guy in the video fitted his the wrong way round!

Because the front mudguard fits to the downpipe rather than the wheel, it's rubbish at catching mud if you're not going in a straight line. The rear, though easy to fit, just doesn't catch most of the mud on my journey down a muddy canal path, I still end up with a back covered in mud. Will try a proper mudguard, closer to the wheel and full length next.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sprawling monster, 11 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having just finished and enjoyed an earlier E.Wilson book, I bought this at full 'new Kindle book' price. I wish I hadn't, it's all over the place, sprawling, yet with the barest of threads connecting the different stories. It also spans quite a time period, so, for example in parts, characters who were killed in earlier books are still alive in this one, I presume because the time-span of this book is broader than earlier works, but the book doesn't paint a clear picture of where you are in the timeline, so it all just seems very confusing. There are sections of this book that I enjoyed, but as a single title, it fails miserably for me.

3.0 out of 5 stars This is, 12 May 2014
Expensive for what it is, there's something called a chirp! on tindie for a fraction of the price that does a better job of monitoring.

4.0 out of 5 stars Charges phones and tablets quickly and frequently., 8 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This does what I bought it for: it charges my iPhone, iPad etc when on the move, as others have said, it charges them quickly and has a lot of capacity, it will fully charge my iPhone5S at least 5 times before it needs a recharge itself.

I tried to use it to power a USB device the other day, a new thermostat which is nowhere near a plug socket, and it doesn't work, the Anker automatically shuts down after a few minutes, I guess the device doesn't draw a lot of power. So it's fine for what it's sold as, something to recharge devices that have a high draw, but don't buy it as a portable USB power pack.
