Philips Viva Collection HR1836/01 Compact Juicer in Brushed Aluminium
Philips Viva Collection HR1836/01 Compact Juicer in Brushed Aluminium
Price: 71.69

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit overpriced, 27 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Got this to replace my larger Philips juicer which to be honest took up to much space for he amount of use it got, and the reason it didn't get much use was because it was difficult to clean. So I thought this one, compact and east clean, would kill two birds with one stone.

On the plus side, it is compact and if not "easy clean" certainly "easier clean".

But is a lot smaller so you don't get as much juice although probably enough for a couple of regular glasses. My biggest disappointment is that compare to my previous juicer it looks a bit plasticky.

So my recommendation. If you are short of space and an occasional juicer this is probably for you. If you want a statement juicer go for something like http://www.amazon.co.uk/Philips-HR1861-Whole-Fruit-Juicer/dp/B0007XHGHA/ref=sr_1_1?s=kitchen&ie=UTF8&qid=1406455583&sr=1-1&keywords=philips+juicer

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, 27 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A sturdy, durable but lightweight wall bracket. Copes comfortably with a 55 inch TV and sits pretty close to the wall. If you want it can tilt as well.

It is easy to put together and comes with some heavy duty fixings.

Overall, a good TV bracket at a very reasonable price.

This review is from: Galt Toys First Puppet Book (Toy)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I got this together with the Galt First rattle set for my friend's baby daughter and it seems quite popular.

There are five colourful, friendly looking finger puppets and a crinkle-book to keep the youngster entertained.

The puppets are well made, soft and, most importantly, machine washable. Overall a nice present for the new addition although I think perhaps they are more suited for slightly older children who are developing their imagination. In fact you could always give this to a (slighltly) older brother or sister to entertain baby.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for the new addition, 8 July 2014
This review is from: Galt Toys First Rattle Set (Toy)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I got this together with the Galt First Puppet book for my friend's baby daughter and it seems quite popular.

There are four puppet rattle, 2 with velcro style straps and 2 sock styles. Like other reviewers say the sock ones can come off as the baby shakes them but other than that they are great. The colour and noise attract the baby's attention and encourages them to move their arms and legs to get a response.

The puppets are well made, soft and, most importantly, machine washable. Overall a nice present for the new addition.


Philips hue Personal Wireless Lighting Starter Pack (3 x GU10 LED Light Bulbs, 1 Bridge)
Philips hue Personal Wireless Lighting Starter Pack (3 x GU10 LED Light Bulbs, 1 Bridge)
Price: 179.95

4.0 out of 5 stars Great product, a bit pricy, 22 Jun 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'm a big fan of Philips coloured lighting, with a couple of living colour units.

These offer pretty much the same principle but allow you the use you main lights. These one are GU10, you can also get screw ins not the two pins as far as I'm aware.

Set up was easy but does involve the downloading of an app to control the system.

The big drawback though, is the price. AT around 60 for one of these bulbs its not cheap particularly is you want to convery all your LED lights.


Creative MUVO 10 Portable Bluetooth Wireless NFC Speaker with Aux-in and Microphone - Black
Creative MUVO 10 Portable Bluetooth Wireless NFC Speaker with Aux-in and Microphone - Black
Price: 49.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great speaker for your holiday, 22 Jun 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I got this bluetooth speaker to take away and was very impressed. It is truely portable, Just charge it up and away you go.

Connecting to ipod and iphone is easy, I had no problems at all, and no drop outs.The speaker is about a foot long but weighs very little so if you are just going with hand luggage this is ideal for you.

The sound is good, not fantastic at high volumes, but I don't think that is it's aim. At moderate levels, if you want to sit on your balcony and listen to some music this is for you, if you want to broadcast across the whole resort look elsewhere (and preferably go elsewhere for your holiday).

Great product, recommended buy from me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not great - but maybe we need to give it time?, 1 Jun 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
For me it didn't really do the job. It wasn't painful but then it didn't really remove hairs by the root. Like the other reviewers have said it did take a while to heat up.

It is interesting to read the other reviews as there are several contradictory views. Perhaps this indicates that there is a knack to using this waxer and maybe w all just need to persevere?


Tefal 13-Piece Ingenio Induction Set

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product if you've just got an induction hob, 1 Jun 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
If like me you have just got an induction hob then this product is for you.

Tefal is a trusted name in non-stick pans and the flexibility afforded by the detachable handles makes these suitable for the oven as well as the hob.

You get 13 pieces - 2 saucepans, 2 frying pans, a sautepan, a wok, 3 glass lids, 2 plastic lids (for storage) and 2 handles. My only criticism here is that I would have liked another lid. The pans have an indicator that tells you when they have reached cooking temperature and according to the pack they can also be used on gas hobs although I haven't tried this.

Overall a great product if you are moving to an induction hob.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Yes, these are pricey pencils, but you really do get what you pay for. The quality of the workmanship is good and the colours clear and vivid.

If you are serious about your art you should consider buying these.


NOCO BLSOLAR5 Solar Battery Charger
NOCO BLSOLAR5 Solar Battery Charger
Price: 24.95

4.0 out of 5 stars Seems to work, 24 May 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've had a few solar charger and to be honest the results vary and none of them have yet been able to maintain the battery on my Boxster.

This one however, looks to be more powerful than others I've used and seems to be ok so far.

One thing to consider - the AA man who came round last time my battery failed said that plugging into the lighter if your lighter is powered when the ignition is off. His advice was get one that plugs into the OBD socket or direct to the battery like this one.
