2.0 out of 5 stars Some (very little) value but would not recommend!, 11 Mar 2013
I have not yet finished reading this book. I am just not sure if I will ever be desperate enough to continue with this writer's outdated polarity of good verus bad, the continued emphasis on [the author's view of] correct parenting (there is only one way, apparently), and on the outdated research discussed... etc, etc, etc. Some of the author's suggestions are valid, but the bla bla that accompanies these ideas are frustrating -- if parents fail to create the correct child, an academic/social wonder robot, who is "brilliant" (this word repeats itself A LOT) in every way, the child will fail at school, and therefore at life, and as a person. I understand the need to sell your idea, but this attitude is destructive and angers me to a point where the good ideas, and there are some, are drowned. Horrible book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product, 18 April 2012
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:3.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Big stable pieces, allowing a 2 year old to mold the tracks and other parts as pleased (no little pieces to get lost, damaged or ingested). Beautiful train set - excellent quality, classic looking, with strong bursts of fun color (mainly plain wood). Brilliant purchase, very pleased. Allows more imaginative play than with the smaller sets.

5.0 out of 5 stars A big, sturdy and good looking laundry hamper., 29 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent product. We now have three.
Haven't seen anything like this in the shops. It's a very big laundry hamper (much bigger than we expected), which folds small and light, and holds so much!

A first year in a young caribou's life. Just the right amount of simple, exact information, with beautiful illustrations. A great addition to our child's library.

This review is from: Owl Moon (Hardcover)
We were charmed by the unique subject, the visual and lyrical descriptions of the frozen North American landscape, and that the characters were for once a girl and her father, on an adventure together. It is a beautiful book, and our 20 month old loves it dearly, and so do we.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product, 3 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Works very effectively, and has been doing the job brilliantly on a daily basis for the last six months. The coffee attachment is excellent as well, and a real reason to get the product even if just for that reason. Easy to store - much shorter than previous one we had. Good price and perfect for our use.

Fit my toddler's (1.5y) hands perfectly. Everyone's happy - fingers were getting very cold when mittens were coming off all the time... So practical choice and a bargin price!
