2.0 out of 5 stars Caravan is all plastic and broke for me, 4 Oct. 2014
The car of this set was alright but the caravan was terrible. The wheels came off after a few days of play from my son who is under 2. I glued and glued but it was apparent that the base just didn't want to stay on. The car itself is die-cast so pretty robust, it's just the plastic bits like the connecting hooks and the caravan (the entire caravan is plastic) that have snapped. I didn't expect much from this set but I was still pretty disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the harvester!, 4 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: John Deere Forwarder 1:87 (Toy)
Very good, very well made, the only reason I didn't give it four stars is that the hook/clamp on the end of the boom comes off quite easily much to my son's disapproval. Also the joint between the cab and the trailer is fused so doesn't move like the real thing, not a huge deal but it's not apparent from the pictures.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant set, 4 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fantastic set. Not too sure what the front loader on the tractor is for but my son isn't bothered by it's apparent superfluous nature. All the vehicles are of fantastic quality and detail; they look just like the real thing! The universal joint on the end of the harvester's boom is a work of engineering genius.

3.0 out of 5 stars Other than that though it's of a very good quality and very easy to put together, 4 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although I couldn't say it was a fault with the thing itself, it didn't catch a single flea the whole week we had it on. Other than that though it's of a very good quality and very easy to put together, we did have quite a modest flea problem so maybe it's only for larger infestations?

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Translation I've found, 14 Mar. 2010
This review is from: Tao Te Ching (Paperback)
After trawling through several translations on-line and at my local libraries I decided to buy this version. With a mini dictionary at the end and beautiful drawings scattered in-between verses this is a simply wonderful book. The translation is sensible and precise and it features a forward from Burton Watson, who has translated many ancient Chinese books, and a short history with a pronunciation guide as well.
As for the Tao Te Ching itself, I advise anyone who's interested in life outside the normal scope to read this through and through, slowly and taking time in your day to reflect and make it part of your life, A pleasure to own.

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic, 17 Dec. 2009
I'd searched around for a decent advanced theory book for months before fining jazzology. It was recommended to me and I have to say that I'd recommend it to anyone looking to play music, any level, any instrument (although this book concentrates on piano i'd say) because it is such a great help. It's pretty advanced in places and you may need to get some help if you're new to theory (the pink and blue ABRSM theory books are good as a starter) but generally if you work through the exercises it all falls into place. Brilliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and useful book, 12 Aug. 2009
This review is from: Fabulous Origami Boxes (Paperback)
This book is brilliant, sometimes it can be a bit confusing in the more advanced folds but it has some fantastic designs and they're all very practical and very robust as well. If you're up for a few challenges and want some boxes, buy this book.
