Keeps liquid hot for ages and has become indispensible on family outings.

The right size for my 2 year old but so badly made the velcro clasp is literally hanging by a thread and comes undone all the time - avoid!

Starts well and has some beautiful animation sequences but story doesn't really hold together and is actualy quite dull. Both me and my 2 year old were bored

5.0 out of 5 stars Expensive but very good, 5 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is more pricey than your standard potty but we initially bought a cheap Ikea potty that my son had no interest in sitting on and was a bit wobbly trying to sit down on. Then purchased this in the hope it would be more comfortable and easy for him to sit on. It didn't win him over immediately but once we started potty training full time it was helpful that he could sit on this for long periods in front of the TV while he got used to weeing in it. Now he spends less time on it because he is more aware of when he needs to go but still seems very happy to sit on it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother, 5 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I read this after being very impressed by Notes on A Scandal and like her other disappointing work The Believers this just isn't worth the time of day. Again a very unlikeable middle aged man getting up to stuff you don't really care about.

Was Notes a pure one hit wonder? Her other books just aren't interesting in any way.

3.0 out of 5 stars Starts well and then loses interest, 5 Oct 2013

This review is from: Untold Stories (Kindle Edition)
I was hooked on this book when I began reading it. Having never read any Bennett I was very impressed by his writing style and the sad story of his mother's unravelling. The insight into his life growing up and how he deals with cancer later in life was very moving.

Then at some point midway it turns into his diaries and becomes very mundane and difficult to concentrate on.

I may go back and track down some of his plays which will probably make for better reading.

2.0 out of 5 stars Totally forgettable, 5 Oct 2013

This review is from: The Believers (Kindle Edition)
Read the amazing Notes on a Scandal and wanted to soak up the rest of Heller's catalogue but what a disappointment that turned out to be. There are so many unlikeable characters in this book it makes it difficult to continue reading. While the characters in Notes were also unlikeable there was something compulsively interesting about them whereas in this novel they are just flat and whiny- you don't really care what happens to them. Don't even know why I finsihed it, think I was just hoping the end would justify the time put in at the beginning.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not that great, 5 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wanted an easy read and thought it might be interesting to hear th point of view of someone in 'my generation'. Not many insights here though. Annoying over use of the word 'trope'. Caitlin Moran is a much better writer but like her book I also didn't get to the end of this. Not really worth the money.
