1.0 out of 5 stars DESERVES NO STARS, 4 Sep 2013
= Durability:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I cannot understand how this product got even one good review. I received them today and they went straight to the bin. The only possibilty I can think of is that they're not made by same manufacturer, it's a lottery, so if you decide to buy them, you take the risk of receiving rubbish through the post.
Not worth sending back. Good thing I do things in advance, but now I have to find something suitable for boys.
What a waste of money...


Madagascar
Madagascar
Price: £7.93

3.0 out of 5 stars good but incomplete, 4 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Madagascar (Audio CD)
obviously the highlight of this soundtrack is the 'lemur's version of 'i like to move it'' and it does take you back to the animation. 'born free' does that too, but i thought other tracks were not as obvious... and the big fault of this soudtrack is the omission of 'the candy man'... i just can't beleive this one has not been included in... shame

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good quality pretend food, 9 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although the toast are smaller than described, i'm happy with the product. Very good quality and durable material (more soft plush than felt), children can actually hold the sandwich better with small hands.

NOTE ABOUT SELLER: Wooden Toy Store
The Haba play toasts were described as being 4'x4' but are in fact 3'x3'. It took one week for the pack to arrive although i paid £2.75 postage because they did not despatch it when stated. I sent an email to explain my discontent, they just ignored... Very poor customer service. Stay clear.

4.0 out of 5 stars great ideas, 22 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i bought this book a few months ago, having two under four doesn't give me much time for any project but i have managed to make two sheep costumes, two fairy skirts and the red riding hood (absolutely georgeous). my next project is the black cat and the pumkin.
having the full-size patterns is great, although the way to look at them isn't clearly explained and even need adjusting sometimes (the riding hood pattern only came down to the shoulders whereas the picture shows it down to the knees, therefore i added some length to it).
i'm a biginner, the result isn't perfect but i'm happy with it and it didn't take long. also, these are just ideas, so with some imagination and adjustments you can create your own costumes.
of course, buying all the material adds to the cost but can you compare buying a cheap plastic/polyester from China or using cotton? and there's the added pleasure of creating something...

5.0 out of 5 stars covers my little wrist, 17 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i see what the other reviews are saying about the watch being flatter than expected, the shiny black metal, etc. but i'm happy with it. although the watch covers my wrist because it's not intended for my gender, i just generally prefer the looks of men's watches.
i agree the date is hard to read on this watch. but it's not like i use that everyday.
the indiglo feature is excellent: so powerful i even use it as a flashlight.
the ticking isn't loud at all, i used to have a Timex Expedition for ladies with a ticking much louder than that.

5.0 out of 5 stars gorgeous coat, 17 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this parka coat is just what i was looking for. my daughter looks so warm and cosy in it, with the faux sheep fur inside. she can easily remove it and hook it herself at playgroup and there is a tag for marking your child's name.
with all french clothing for kids you have to be careful with the sizes. they tend so size small, so for my daughter who is 3 years old, i ordered a 5 year old size i think. so it will hopefully fit this winter and the next one.

3.0 out of 5 stars not the best but ok i suppose, 17 Nov 2012
= Durability:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
when i received the toy and fitted the batteries, i was expecting the windmill to give very little light but was positively surprised by the good amount of led lights. the toy looks flimsy though, and has certainly not been tested and approved to give to a child. the little plastic cover for the on and off switch comes off. i couldn't let my 1 year old play with it and had to warn my 3 year old not to remove it or the toy would be confiscated. think she didn't trust herself not to do it because she gave it back to me to put away.
and last but not least, switch up and the windmill turns with nice lights, switch down and you get the nice lights plus a horrible and annoying music... (the beverly hills tune plus frog for mobile phones i think)
probably why my daughter gave it back to me as she was forbiden to play the music...
but then again, for that price, i can't complain... just how long will the toy live remains to be seen

3.0 out of 5 stars nice item, 17 Nov 2012

This review is from: LED Light Up Fan (Toy)
the fan needs 3 AAA batteries, for such a small device i hope it lasts a long time, because they are quite difficult to place inside and remove. also, the battery cover needs the tiniest screw driver, fortunately i have the tiny screw driver you need for glasses... perfect!
i got 2 fans for my 1 year old and 3 year old, in order to have peace of mind, i just removed the cord before giving them.
as a fan itself, it's not too bad but as for the entertainment value it hits the mark.
my 3 y old daughter still managed to break hers the very next day by getting the thing close to her hair... very bad move... the fan's place is just in the bin now.
my 1 y old son is a little scared of it, so now it's mine! i can hypnotise myself and have fun on my own... sad.


Fables de La Fontaine : Sur des airs de jazz (1CD audio)
Fables de La Fontaine : Sur des airs de jazz (1CD audio)
by Jean de La Fontaine
Edition: Album
Price: £16.71

5.0 out of 5 stars simply brilliant, 25 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Jean De La Fontaine's Fables are those famous french classic stories personifying animals.
The illustrations are mostly spread on two pages and the text is intergrated within, the drawings are delicate and beautiful. The book is very well made.
Out of 28 'fables' (most famous), 12 are put into music. The title says the stories are put into jazzy music. For those who know 'Les parapluies de Cherbourg' (Jacques Demy) that's what it made me think of. I'm not a big fan of jazz, but can appreciate some of it, interesting i would say. Maybe i would have prefered less womens high pitched voices.
All in all, the book is a delight.

5.0 out of 5 stars sooo comfortable, 18 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i have to say these pair of trainers were more expensive than the usual New Balance i get but oh my ..., they are sooo comfortable. i suffer from hallux valgus (or bunion) since i was a teenager but since having my children it has become worst for obvious reasons. these trainers are so roomy at the toes, so you can easily add deo soles or orthopeadic soles. alright they aren't as cushioned around the heel as other trainers would be, but that's what makes them less bulky. they are discreet, good thing as i wear them all the time (hence the deo soles). if it's possible to purchase them again when i'm done with these, i will.
