5.0 out of 5 stars a great fun robot !, 24 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Length:: 1:49 Mins

This a fun robot, he is made of plastic and stands at a height of about 21.5 cm. So what do you get and how does he work?

You get Kib (that's his name), a controller, a USB charging lead, and instructions. He manoeuvres courtesy of two wheels which have rubber tyres, and he lights up when in operation. At the front of KIb is a button and pressing this changes his mode (more about the modes later). At the rear is the on/off button and charging port. To get him going you need to insert 4 AAA batteries (not supplied) and turn him on. To get the controller going you will need to insert 2 AA batteries (not supplied), and turn on. So it's all pretty simple stuff to get him going.

The controller has two operational functions; a joystick and a button. The joystick, as you probably gathered, is used to steer KIb, and you can go forward and backwards, and left and right. It is possible to simultaneously turn and go in a direction at the same time. The joystick works really well and is very easy to use. The button is simple to use too, you just press it and it changes the mode in which the robot is operating. You know which mode you are in because each mode is represented by a certain colour (for example boxing mode is red) and at the front of Kib is a teardrop shaped light which lights up the certain colour for which mode he is currently operating in. It's a clear and user friendly system that works well. The manual lets you know which colours relate to what modes, but to be honest it only takes a little bit of use to learn what the colours mean.

Regarding the modes, I would say two modes will be used most of the time when using this; mainly the drive mode (purple) with the occasional dance mode (pale green). In the drive mode you can steer Kib around as you wish, and it works well, and this is the mode he is likely to be in most of the time. If you want a breather, or impress your friends, then you can go to dance mode. In dance mode Kib will take over the controls himself, he will play music, flash his lights, and dance around in a circle. Again, this is another mode that works excellently. Both this modes are shown in my video.

There are a few other modes but I wouldn't pay too much attention to these. There is a gesture mode which I didn't have much luck with to be honest, whereby Kib is supposed to respond to your hand signals. It may be something that needs practice, I'm not sure. There is a boxing mode which I couldn't test as you need two robots for this. Apparently you can go up to another robot and punch him. The final mode is balance and this works ok. Kib has a tray (supplied) which you can put things on and he moves slowly with caution to keep the tray balanced. Good for anything that's not too heavy (like delivering a chocolate to someone) but I wouldn't recommend drinks. Kids could have a good game with the balancing mode, seeing who can balance an object from one place to another.

One final thing regarding the batteries. If you are using standard batteries, you will have to remove three of those very small screws for changing them, so you'll need a small screwdriver for this. If using rechargeable ones then you may be able to charge them up without removing them but I am not totally sure about this. Kib comes with a USB charging leads which plugs into his back and this connects to the batteries inside. Whether they have to be a certain type of rechargeable battery, or any ones will do I am not sure. If you don't know either and this is important to you I would suggest contacting the seller to find out.

I was sent a sample Kib to test and to give an honest review. Overall, we really like it. He is pretty cheap and cheerful but moves around the room well and looks good. I like the way his body sways forward and back slightly as if trying to get his balance. It's fun and something different to the standard remote control car. Most young kids will love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars a delicate, elegant looking diffuser that’s simple to use, works well, and looks nice, 23 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Length:: 1:45 Mins

This is a lovely little diffuser. The wood grain effect looks really nice, and the top white section runs through some lovely colours. The overall result is very effective. It has a diameter of just under 13cm.

The box comes with everything you need, and it takes a matter of minutes to have it up and running. Just plug in the lead supplied, put some water in using the measuring jug also provided, add a few drops of your favourite essential oil if desired, and turn on. Simple. You can then choose how you want it to operate.

The two buttons on the back of the unit are simple to understand and use, the bottom one is for the light and the top one is for the mist. For the light you can have it on a fixed colour or have it running through the colours automatically. For the mist you can have it on intermittent or continuous. The mist comes out quietly, and the light looks effective, especially in a dimmed room. It does have a safety cut off, so if you leave it on and forget it then it will switch itself off if the water dries up, so that's good to know. The unit is quiet when running.

One final thing to mention, in one of the seller's pictures it shows the plug as a 2-pin U.S plug. Don't worry, these do come with the standard UK 3-pin plug.

Overall, I would say a delicate, elegant looking diffuser that’s simple to use, works well, and looks nice.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent backpack - comfortable, well made, with some great features., 22 May 2016
I really like this backpack. It's comfortable, good quality, and has some great features.Construction is top-notch. Material is strong, stitching is good, and the zips are all metal and run smoothly. The straps rings are strong, the buckles and clips are made of the hard plastic which is standard for backpacks. The bag holds 30L as stated. It's been really well thought over and designed.

Adjustable straps around the backpack allow compression once packed. The shoulder straps are well padded and ventilated for comfort. It also has the adjustable strap & buckle system for the chest and waist once wearing. The top strap supports the chest and holds the shoulder straps together, the lower one which goes around the chest holds the backpack flush to the body. These strap and buckles are particularly useful when carrying a full or heavier load, for support and comfort. The bag also has a carry handle on top.

The backpack has an impressive array of compartments/pockets which will certainly meet all of my needs. It has a main large centre storage section which contains an elasticated pocket (29cm x 18cm). The second large storage section contains 5 small pockets, one of them meshed. On the outside is an elasticated pocket which has a depth of about 24cm and is 23cm wide, this has a mesh centre strip for ventilation. Right at the top of the bag is a zipped pocket (13cm x 16cm) and this is ideal for anything that you want immediate and easy access to; keys, wallet, phone, etc. At the bottom of the bag is another zipped section which is for shoes, and it is easy big enough even for boots. And this can of course be used for something else is you wish. Either side are two elasticated meshed pockets for bottles and these are large enough to take even the bigger bottles. The waist strap also has a small zipped pocket built in to it.

One final thing to mention that I like very much. At the base of the backpack is a zipped compartment and this houses a raincover. I haven't had one of these before on any of my rucksacks, and I know it's going got be very useful. Not only as it's intended purpose, to keep the backpack dry, but also as a standard protection cover, and it's fluorescent green so will be easy to spot if the bag is stacked up with other bags when in a travelling / exploring group. I was surprised how simple it is to use. It's elasticated and it covers the bag in seconds, you can hold it together if you want using the velcroed strap. When finished with, it packs away in seconds too. An excellent feature.

Overall, I am delighted with this. It is replacing my old one which had died on me. My old one was a top brand make bought from an Outdoor Centre and cost about twice as much as this, I can honestly say that I like this one better. It's more comfortable with better features, and I especially like the rain cover.

5.0 out of 5 stars works perfectly - with a decent sound, 22 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The immediate thing to say about this is that it works perfectly, has a decent sound, and is simple to use. You can never always tell what you are going to get when you order online - but no worries here, this is a good one.

Charging was standard stuff with the USB cable provided. It connected up quickly to both our iPhone and Mac computer. The sound quality is fine for a speaker of this size, certainly good enough for a shower speaker. The speaker has a nice soft rubbery feel to it and it's light, 146g. Controls around the unit offer play, volume, next/previous track, pause, and call. I have noticed that the charge lasts a long time, it's been used many times and still hasn't needed to be charged up again, so if using for a shower speaker it isn't something that you are going to be continuously having to charge up. The suction sticks really well, we've tested it on both our tiles and shower door and it stayed on both without falling off. And we can vouch that it is definitely waterproof.

As a shower speaker you couldn't want for more really, it's perfect. And I would also say good as a little camping speaker too, as it's light and small - about 8.5 cm in diameter. It works perfectly and is easy to use - and listening to music in the shower is great !

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent value metal construction torch thats simple to use, 22 May 2016
I am really pleased with this - for a tenner it is excellent value.

First thing to mention is the construction, it's metal, not the usual plastic. Function wise it is very user friendly, the click on off button is at the end. Adjusting the beam could not be easier, just pull the head in and out, you don't even need to turn it. The beam adjusts from x1 to x200 and works perfectly. Strength of the light is very good. To choose the strobe light depress the button part way and wait. I would say this is great for in the home as well as outdoors camping, at this price what more could you want?

Length minimum beam: 13.5 cm
Length maximum beam: 15.5cm
Weight: 170g
Power Source: 3 AAA Batteries (not supplied)

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent clippers for head and body use, 21 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Length:: 1:18 Mins

These are great clippers, I really like them.

For me the big plus is that they are rechargeable and portable. I shave my head weekly and for this I use standard Wahl clippers. Which are fine for home but not so good when I travel, and no good at all if I don't have a power socket nearby or when camping. But these are great for this, small, portable, and I can fully charge them up before I go.

First thing to mention is the construction. These are solid, and made from metal not the usual plastic, and it feels like you're holding something decent in your hand. Using them is simple, just charge up the lithium battery (you can do this without removing the battery from the unit) and you have 4 hours portable use. From there you just choose your setting and switch on.

Regarding the settings. The precision setting is on the unit and you adjust by clicking the dial. Precision settings can be set from 0.8 to 2mm. . Further to this you have 4 attachments which clip on and off. The settings for these are 3mm, 6mm. 9mm, 12mm. So using and adjustment setting with these is simple and convenient.

Another use I would recommend these for is removing body hair. Many men nowadays, like women, are opting to shave their body hair, and I would say these these are perfect for that. They shave really well, and the fact that they are small, easy to hold, as well as not needing to be plugged in, makes them ideal.

One final thing to mention. The charging lead has the 2-pin US plug so needs to be used with an adaptor, but this is not a problem. I purchased one from Amazon for just £1.38 (including postage). You can just add this to your basket when you order the clippers so it needn't put you off buying these. Just look at it as an extra £1.38 on the price.

Overall, I am very happy with these. When you order online you can never be sure what you are going to get, especially regarding quality, but no worries here, these are great quality and are excellent to use. The cutting is sharp and clean, and they are comfortable and easy to use.

5.0 out of 5 stars VR Box, 21 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Length:: 1:13 Mins

I really like this Headset, we have a couple of others in the household and this is the preferred one.

Firstly, we find it the most comfortable. It has a decent amount of padding around the mask, and the shape fits our faces just right which hasn't always been the case. The strap is elasticated and adjustable, with soft flexible plastic T-section at the back.

Function wise it does the standard VR stuff. It uses the pull-down system for inserting the phone which in my opinion is a much better way than the slide-in system that some headsets use. The phone is held in place by a spring loaded plastic piece that sits inside. This is a bit stiff (it may loosen up with time) so I would recommend using two hands for sliding this up. Once in you can adjust the view easily with the two buttons on top of the unit. These will adjust the focus and the distance between the two lenses. There are openings in both sides of the mask so you can plug earphones/headphones into your phone whilst using.

One final thing for the beginners. VR apps are easily available for both iPhones and Samsung. These aren't expensive and some of them are even free. For Apple use the app store and search VR, for Samsung use Google Play.

5.0 out of 5 stars a great device that takes several plug systems, 21 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Length:: 1:36 Mins

This is a great device, perfect to have in the home if you're fed up with not having enough power sockets and charging ports, or having things scattered all around the home whilst charging. With this charging station you can have a designated charging area, and know that there will always be an available socket. So what do you get?

The Bukm Charger stands about 28cm tall and is made of hard moulded plastic. The widest part is the base which has a width of roughly 15cm. The cable extends out from the base and uses a standard 3-pin plug. The socket section rotates on the base for easy access if powering many devices at the same time, and continuous rotation extends the cable out from the base - the cable can extend to a length of about 180cm / 6foot. To turn on and use, you simply press the button that corresponds with your socket, the red LED will light up to tell you it's active. All simple and convenient.

You get 10 power sockets and 4 USB Sockets. The excellent thing about this charger is that the power sockets, as well as taking the standard UK 3-pin plug, also take the European 2-pin and the US Flat 2-pin (see video and pics). This for me is brilliant, it saves hunting around for our one shaver adapter that is in the house. And it saves having to buy an adapter if you happen to purchase something that comes with a US plug (which has happened to me).

I really like this, it is very convenient. It's great to have one specific charging area rather than have everything scattered around the home. The whole family knows where to go to charge a device - and knows where to find it ! And with 10 power sockets and 4 USB ports there won't be anymore fighting over a socket or USB port. It's good to know that it has built-in surge and overload protection too. So overall, very happy with this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Nice Costume - just be careful of the size, 20 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Okay, first of all I will review the Bikini Dress for what it is. It's really nice, the material is soft and silky, it looks really nice in the seller's pictures and it is genuinely as nice as this for real. The top has double straps and a zip at the back, and the bottom band is slightly elasticated. The shorts also have a zip which goes half the way down. The whole costume is well stitched and seems to be good quality. So in this sense, it's very good.

The issue to be careful of is the size. I am a UK size 6 so I ordered the small. Unfortunately it was too big. So be careful of the size when ordering. I would suggest if you are UK Medium then order a Small, If you are UK Large then order a Medium, and if you are UK X Large then order a Large.
