3.0 out of 5 stars Strong smelling, 31 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Perhaps this is a characteristic of the Extra virgin oil but I hadn't had such a strong smell from a coconut oil before. Great sturdy jar - easy to spoon out of.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great pan, sturdy and well balanced, 31 Dec 2013

I'm used to frying pans tipping over with the weight of their handles but this one stays put. We have an induction hob and the affordable choices are few. I was delighted to see this coming up on a Boxing Day deal :)

Hard to find, these monkeys were exactly what my daughter was looking for. As with all Sylvanians, they're hard to redress :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous game, 31 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Settlers of Catan (Toy)
This will keep us going for a long time; a great game. From a manufacturing perspective, there has been an issue in the last year or so with the pieces not quite fitting right (I bought one as a gift last year so this isn't unique to mine). We have to unlock two of the sea borders in order for the hexes to sit flat. Otherwise an all-round excellent game.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hugely disappointed. Cheap and tacky, 31 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The picture did not reflect just how cheap and tacky these are in the hand. They are huge too and the hourglass pinch is too wide to cause any slowing down of the contents. I am really disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to adapt - fits well, 31 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My 10yr old son wanted to be The Riddler for Halloween but I couldn't find a costume anywhere to fit him. This worked well; there's a seam around the neck so it was easy for me to trim the head off without causing it to unravel.

The suit is by its nature very tight-fitting and leaves nothing to the imagination so plan for several layers of underwear in order to protect their modesty :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Very happy kids, 31 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
From the reviews I thought this would take a while to build by my 10yo had it finished in about 15m. He loves it though & it has the elusive Cole too. It's held together pretty well - my boys play with the completed pieces for quite some time before they disassemble and the bits vanish into the several tonnes of Lego we already have :).

1.0 out of 5 stars Very flimsy but looked good, 31 Dec 2013

My son wanted to be The Riddler for Halloween. The hat looked good but was very flimsy and snapped before the night was out. He wasn't being rough with it :(

My 9yr old son absolutely loves this watch! It arrived quickly and was more or less exactly as in the picture. There's a slight 'weld' mark where the ring meets the strap.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun!, 23 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is good fun. I didn't think 20ml would be enough, but it's plenty for playing around with. The fluid seems to be good quality.

BTW if you stumble on this and are wondering what a ferrofluid is good for, here's a good demo: [...] (n.b. not for young kids - requires careful handling).
