3.0 out of 5 stars Looks the business, 14 April 2016
I was sent a sample in exchange for an independent review

I chose this with a twelve year old grandson in mind. The set is massive, impressive, full of bells and whistles. Three different adaptors, connectors/plugs are 'golden'. The variety offered means this set can also be used with his X box and PS4 too, so what a versatile pair of headphones this is.

The sizing becomes bespoke, without needing adjustment apparently as the fit is secured by the springs in the top, the padded 'lid', bar over the head, into parts, one padded and the other conventional plastic. The whopping great squishy red pads on the noise cancelling, stereo earphones which cover the ears,make it a comfy fit. When you stay still anyway. Shutting out the world and working hard to make every game, conversation, music playing, sound as sharp, deep and absorbing as possible, giving a truly immersive, involving experience.

The thick lead/cable/cord is 7 foot long with the controls intersecting it at 18". That seems rather generous. Maybe tall people play standing up.The flexible microphone is tops, works fine and the controls are easy to use. Inside the earphones is a padded mesh, extra insulation. I was a bit concerned that the set moves about a bit on the head and hair, only the ears, it seems, hold it on, I couldn't see how to make the headphones tighter - two silver coloured knobs on the sides appear to be only decorative. It all certainly moved around on me.There are no English instructions, just specifications on the box.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just the best, understated luxury, in every detail, 14 April 2016
I was sent a sample set in exchange for an independent review

Reminiscent of the polished walnut dashboards in luxury cars, the wooden earphones are delightfully retro, rich and expensive looking. The weight they bring is just the right touch of quality, matching the copper green, red and golden coloured cable woven inside a transparent sleeve with microphone inserted. There is a small velcro loop to keep this cable in good order. The connector is gold plated, which gives the clarity and crispness so obvious when in use. Generously supplied with multiple accessories these earphones would make a great gift, especially for yourself!

Store them in either a black and red shell, zip up case, with an interior mesh pocket for extra buds, or a soft grey velvet drawstring pouch, closed by a silken cord finished off with complementing wooden beads. There are a range of a dozen different sized spare sponge ear buds presented in the tidy white box it all arrives in.

Most important of all is the wonderful sound. I feel the music literally travelling through my head, the left and right stereo effect is exquisite and the depth of bass just perfect for me. I don't miss a beat, an aside, any little quirky detail of the music. Nothing intrudes, I just enjoy the rhythm and flow, total pleasure.

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost a negligee, 13 April 2016
I was sent a sample in exchange for an independent review

Being 'see through' is a shame as, yes, the design is pretty and deserves to be seen. My white sample is more like nightwear, pjs, than anything I could put on to go out and about. The brocade neckline feature is charming and the idea of sleeves that hang off the shoulder is a good one, if sometimes arms are not one's best feature. The sleeves are however funnel shaped with a wide bell end. which less than practical for anything everyday. Again, this made me think this top is more like something I would wear at night.

The material is stretchy and soft, but also very clingy, which is hard to carry off unless you are stick thin. The sizes are explained as UK Small being Asian Medium to Large, UK Medium being Asian Large to XL and UK Large being Asian XL - 2Xl. and so on right up to UK5XL always being one more size up in Asian terms.

The back is longer than the front, covering your seat, which is helpful with leggings and jeans. So any faults I found with it were my problem; so once you know that it clings and is see through, it's up to you whether that will suit your figure and taste.

4.0 out of 5 stars Always useful, 13 April 2016
I was sent a sample in exchange for an independent review

There is a velcro strip loop attached to the lead to allow it to be tidily wound. The UK plug is fitted with a 13A fuse. There are four three pin sockets, four USB slots 5V/1A, 5V/1A, 5V/2.4A, 5V/2.4A. A red lit up on/off switch, also resets the power strip. This simple, sturdy set up is just what I needed for my computer and for charging up kit.

Made in China, but arriving from Germany it comes well packaged with straightforward instructions. Rather sweetly we are encouraged to avoid 'beating and crashing' the power strip!

5.0 out of 5 stars A hop, skip and a jump for this perky puffin, 13 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Superb value, this delightful mouse mat is a joy to use.

Having recently noticed my ancient mat was looking grim and the mouse itself becoming rather grubby, I decided a spring clean was in order.

The funny puffin mat is amusing, cheery, and bright. The mouse moves over it smoothly. The mat stays solidly in place, doesn't scoot about the desk (unlike a real puffin!) It is perhaps an inch smaller all round than my previous one, but I am quickly getting used to that.

One more thing to brighten up my day is always welcome!

5.0 out of 5 stars A grown up bag, ready for anything, 12 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was sent a sample in exchange for an independent review

This would look most at home in the city, around an airport, carrying kit for a professional career lady. Book bag, shopper, too it is versatile and useful in so many ways. The black material is smart and stylish, with its relative severity lightened by the attractive mulberry, deep pink, of the nylon lining. Inside there are two slip in pouches and one large zip up interior purse. A key ring loop and an overall chunky zipper to close the bag when full and off out and about. Two faux leather straps fit neatly under the arm for using it as a shoulder bag. Their detail continues around the outer sides of the bag as decoration, and for extra strength.

Waterproof and protective of what you keep inside, the tote bag is well thought out and not overly complex. You are more likely to be able to find stuff as there are not a great number of closed spaces inside, it's open for quick stowage. The leather tag on the outside, secured by a brass coloured chain, has the word CHICECO embossed on one of the tags. There is also an outer tag attached to the side. The bag arrives in a cloth cover with handles, so it is attractively presented as a gift item and can be stored in the cover.

This would even be good for a night away, as carry on luggage, it can accompany you to all kinds of occasions.

4.0 out of 5 stars The most enormous fun to fly, 12 April 2016
I was sent a sample in exchange for an independent review.

This is titchy, hectic and capable of all sorts of aerobatics, once you have read the instructions. I chose it to use with a younger teenage grandson who was very excited by it.

So, once again, you need to read the manual. Then if it is the first time you are trying it, go out into the largest empty safe space you can find, nowhere near water, roofs, animals, cars etc. Learning to manoeuvre it will be easy for those already digitally trained, from x boxes etc. A skill to develop and be proud of. 360 degree flips will soon become possible. Being outside, away from a screen, for hours flying this, is a lot healthier!

The tiny propellers buzz like angry wasps, the range is impressive, and the dexterity you acquire in flying it will be satisfying and enjoyable. The drone is bigger and stronger than the nano version, it feels more robust and the guards prevent propeller damage whenit inevitably hits the deck.

5.0 out of 5 stars A comforting, warm and tactile, furry friend, 12 April 2016
I was sent a sample in exchange for an independent review

Suspended from a really chunky looking faux brass ring, with opening and closing clip to attach to the handbag, rucksack, belt; hanging from a leather strap, this fab, furry ball of fluff is absolutely gorgeous.

It almost feels alive, and reacts to being stroked by becoming even more fuzzy. My grand daughter immediately fell in love with it and wants it for a pet! Already very much admired, it adds a touch of pizazz to every day and offers a little therapy session for when things threaten to overwhelm.

The silky colours range through, magenta, autumnal orange, red and darker brown, green and purple. likely to match many an outfit for sure.

4.0 out of 5 stars Safer than a flame, with same flicker and glow, 12 April 2016
I was sent a sample in exchange for an independent review

Charged up by USB cable in around 4-5 hours, this retro looking 'oil' lamp looks sweet and pretty in a bedroom, on a kitchen dresser, in a bathroom or study. The instructions are in English, with easy to understand pictorial and text instructions. Apparently the lamp will glow for up to 20 hours if used on low, with less battery life for a brighter light, 4-8 hours.

I love the warm red base, the cut crystal glass is intricately detailed with a delightful pattern. The mock chimney is transparent plastic, not glass, so is safe if knocked over. It's fun to blow it on and off, a trick that impresses the grandchildren. I can alter the brightness by turning the dial. The lowest level equals a candle. The tiny off/on switch can be left on, unless the lamp is going to be left alone for a longer time, as it is a bit fiddly to use frequently. Whjile charging through the cable a white light shows.
