Barbie Rock-n-Royals Courtney Doll 
Barbie Rock-n-Royals Courtney Doll 
Price: £22.97

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice unique pretty singing doll Courtney, 31 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My 9 year old niece is very happy with this as she's pretty, is Courtney from the forthcoming movie and she sings!
But the mic can't be removed nor can she be dressed up etc which is a let down, nevertheless this is a themed doll and a nice unique addition to the collection.


Silentnight Cooler Summer 4.5 Tog Duvet, Double
Silentnight Cooler Summer 4.5 Tog Duvet, Double
Price: £23.19

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb duvet for average summer nights, 25 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
When this arrived nicely packed in a plastic bag like wrapper I thought it was a pillow - that's how compact and fine it is.

Unpacking reveals a double size duvet made from a soft touch fine cover - with good stitching and over locking to secure the filling within which is light fluffy like Primaloft making the duvet very light very very light and airy and it's probably 1/2" thick when fillings are fully lofted and shaken.

In use obviously this won't be used on the hottest of nights as that requires a sheet over the top as a formality - but for your average Sunmer nights when the temperate during the day is in it's 70ies this is very very comfortable, very light and it is airy making it wick and draw away any sweat leaving you dry and comfortable.
It is also quite malleable and pliable and not semi rigid or stiff like other artificial fillings can be - so it's easily and comfortably kicked away or lifted aside when sleeping.
I suggest a light silk or cotton cover to protect and aid the wicking nature of the quilt.
This will be suitable for nights when I'd say the day temperature is anywhere from the 60ies upwards to mid 70ies and then depending on inside temperature at night and how warmed up your rooms are. Some people sleep hotter than other and some cooler so some may find it cooler on nights I may be comfortable with this - the 4.5 Tog is ideal as a Summer weight - it's warm enough and comfortable enough to give you a good nights sleep in most average British Summer temperatures

overall this is a very good useful duvet and has been a revelation because before obtaining this I was alternating between a mulberry silk filled quilt to a use of combination sheets/blankets for summer use and with this I've managed to get something good for most average summer nights -

Ross Henery Professional Japanese style Premium stainless Steel 9 piece chefs knife set with protective sheaths in canvas carry case
Ross Henery Professional Japanese style Premium stainless Steel 9 piece chefs knife set with protective sheaths in canvas carry case
Price: £69.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully made and designed knife set - makes a great gift and are very practical., 24 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These are excellent.

Beautifully presented in a roll out canvas type case which is tough and very well made - with slots for each knife and japanese characters giving a nice touch.

The knives themselves are very nicely made for the price - great attention to detail with textured steel handles, Japanese/Chinese characters etched onto the blade giving them that authentic look.

the blades are sharp and well made and look beautiful and each comes with a nicely made stylised plastic sheath.

The knives are very nicely forged, solid, nicely balanced and the right weight feeling good in the hand and giving confidence when slicing, dicing or chopping.

The sharpener/file is also a nice touch with a cross handle resembling a sword!

This makes a great gift for the budding cook or chef and they look much more expensive than they are - gave this set to my mother and she's over the moon with it as these aren't display pieces - they're very good kitchen knives.


Vax AP01 Air Purifier, White
Vax AP01 Air Purifier, White
Price: £99.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic effective good value air purifier, 24 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Great product. It is small in size in comparison with most air purifiers and has four touch sensitive buttons to change preferences. It works. It does not generate a lot of noise which is good. Easy to set up with a decent sized power cable so it can be positioned anywhere in an average sized room. You can adjust the timer 2 4 or 8 hours, fan speed LOW MEDIUM and HIGH and it led has lights on it. 2 years free warranty. Easy to replace the filter if needed.

Very effective in use, air noticeably cleaner fresher less dusty in the bedroom where it's used - hayfever symptoms eradicated in the room along with smell . Very good and well worth it.
The kitchen used to have mice and they left that rodent smell which just wouldn't go. After a week of using this the smell is GONE at last !

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Superb cable
Very well made with proper quality material and fitting - and long at 6 ft.
It's also Apple Certified which means it meets superior manufacturing and usage criteria - with out any worries about shorts or inferior build or anything which is off putting about the fake stuff littering the marketplace .

Excellent price too - recommended and even better than the Original!


Bosch TDA2623GB Steam Iron, 2400 W - White/Green
Bosch TDA2623GB Steam Iron, 2400 W - White/Green
Price: £25.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value high quality iron, 20 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The iron looks very nice and is well made, sturdy nice balance and weight to it giving confidence in ironing
Has a nice design and feels good to hold and use

Easy to fill up and holds enough water for a long ironing session with full steam - steam is good , gives a good blast when you press the trigger! Yeah man!

2 meter long cable is a very good bonus.

Cuts through clothes and washed jeans like hot knife through butter. Very smooth and easy- Good blasts of steam which can be applied while holding a garment up - very useful.

All together this is an excellent good value iron, as good in many ways with good steam build and ease of use as more expensive irons.


Philips HD9340/90 Glass Kettle, 2200 W, 1.5 Litre
Philips HD9340/90 Glass Kettle, 2200 W, 1.5 Litre
Price: £45.00

5.0 out of 5 stars German made superior build quality and elegance in an excellent kettle., 19 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've used a lot of kettles - being a vine member helps in trying out different kinds, but this is The Best yet.
For a start, its beautifully made, good build quality, well made moving parts and textured handle, nice feel plastics and Aluminium and strong glass - looks and feels as good as it's made too.

It's made in Germany and that is also important, instantly making this superior to all of the Chinese made trash that litters the market - even expensive kettles many are made in China - so Philips need to be applauded by giving their customers quality through and through.

It's a simple elegant design and just looks great and classy.

The water is easily topped up straight into the spout without having to open and close the lid - and no the water doesn't splash everywhere as the spout is wide enough. And opening and closing the lid is a sure fire way of lessening the longevity of any kettle as such mechanisms are prone to wear.

Water boils rapidly, and the kettle lights up to indicate so.

As with any clear kettle, using hard water leads to a build up of limescale - I have a Brita water filter fitted to my kitchen sink so this isn't a short term problem - but any kettle/iron scale remover will clean this up.

Base plate is strong and sturdy, and the cable is nice and long and coils up under the base plate.

Overall - the joint Best kettle I've used (my Kettle of choice is yet the Braun WK500 - but that is because that has a larger spout and is a Braun)

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful little Headphone and Pre Amp - with that lovely Tube sound!, 6 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is wonderful!

After reading the reviews of this here and elsewhere I took the plunge into my first Valve/Tube foray.
I have hooked it up as a headphone amp and pre Amp from my iMac (2015) via a 3.5mm jack to 2 RCA into the LDii.

The sound quality and depth is fantastic - the DAC in the iMac is very good and this adds to much more to the tone and sound.
I'm using a pair of Beyerdynamic T51p Headphones and this Amp is perfectly matched.

What people say is true - the sound is so melodic, so more natural and enjoyable in many nuanced ways.

As a Pre Amp:

I am aware that Little Dot advise that this should be used with a Power Amp or with an integrated Amp which is NOT Direct Coupled - which rules out most Integrated Amps. This is because when switching on the LDii Valves can blow the speakers or *could* damage them - but apart from this, the Valve/Tube sound will be audible from your set up IF this does not occur.

I however, do not have a Power Amp, but a TEAC A-H300 Integrated Amp connected to a pair of B&W 601 S2 Speakers (as a bedroom set up connected to my Mac).

I took the chance and hooked this up via 2 RCA Phono from the already hooked up LDii into the Aux input on my TEAC.

After some research, I have discovered that the potential side effects of plugging this into an integrated Amp can be nullified or rather lessened considerably if:

a) The LDii Pre Amp is powered on first with volume at minimum - and the Tubes allowed to be warmed up for a couple of minutes
b) the Integrated Amp then turned on.

You can then play your music as normal.

I have the LDii volume at 1/5th (at 20 or lower) and use the gain on the TEAC for volume.

Not had a single problem and I'm absolutely loving the Wonderful Tube sound coming out of my B&W's which is superb and a complete pleasure to listen to.

I would like to add that LD do not recommend my set up - but I am willing to take the risk and do not encourage others to do so.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful heavy large volume to read and display and a perfect Gift., 6 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I along with some work friends bought this for a friend as a Gift on his Ordination as a Pentecostal Minister.
Wonderful Gift which he along with his wife love and treasure.

Beautifully bound in leather, and in a bound slide in cover/box to store it in.

Nicely printed and decorated inside. It comes with two inside cover labels which can be stuck (they are stickers) with the words Presented To: On the occasion of: From:

Big heavy volume which takes pride of place on the bookshelf and a joy to peruse.

Overall, a high quality, beautiful Volume of the Old, New and Apocrypha to keep, treasure and display and well worth the cost.
