Transformers Playskool Heroes Rescue Bots High Tide Rescue Rig
Transformers Playskool Heroes Rescue Bots High Tide Rescue Rig
Price: £23.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun for young kids, 20 Sept. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a whole lot of fun for a young kid. The transformer 'High Tide' can either be positioned on the ship in his robot form, or transformed into a mini-submarine, where he can be put inside the ship. There's all kinds of levers and buttons to keep a kid fully occupied, controlling High Tide while inside the ship, enabling him to appear at the top of the ship or be ejected from the bottom. There's loads of variations of gameplay, making for a very entertaining toy.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great aid for kids with colds, 16 Sept. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The Vicks Sweet Dreams Cool Mist Humidifier with Projector is a fairly big device but I found it very easy to setup with the instructions supplied. To be honest setting it up was pretty self-explanatory and I was up and running with it in about 10 minutes.

It comes with Vicks vapopads that fit into the side compartment. You then add water which is then emitted as a soft mist that is scented with the Vicks menthol, giving a pleasant aroma in the room that's just enough to aid breathing if suffering from a cold or cough, without being too pungent.

When left on it hardly makes any noise, and the built-in projector is a very nice touch, it's certainly not the best light show your kids will ever see, but it's a nice novelty and acts as a soothing night light as well.


LeapFrog Word Whammer
LeapFrog Word Whammer
Price: £11.33

3.0 out of 5 stars A fun way of word learning, 14 Sept. 2015
This review is from: LeapFrog Word Whammer (Toy)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This puts a fun twist on word-building as kids have to tap or twist the right button to match up letters and create words. The tactile nature of the LeapFrog Word Whammer and the fact it comes with a number of built-in games means a child should get good enjoyment out of it for a fair while.

The one thing that did disappoint me is the screen, which is LCD and monochrome. Surely in this day and age it wouldn't have added much more to the production costs to have a colour screen, as the monochrome screen does come across as lifeless and little bit dull, which is a pity. Other than that this is a fun, educational toy for young ages.


Nivea Men Ultimate Fitness Bag
Nivea Men Ultimate Fitness Bag
Price: £35.00

5.0 out of 5 stars A high quality toiletry kit, 14 Sept. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a very well put together little kit and would make an excellent present for someone. Whereas many toiletry collections can have a cheap or tacky feel to them, this is of a very high quality. Firstly, the bag is the star of the show, it's very well made and isn't at all lightweight, as well as being bigger than I expected.

So almost for the bag alone it's worth getting this, but the included toiletries are also all top-notch, being form Nivea. The only strange inclusion is the wrist-band, not really sure anyone would make any use of this as it seems very gimmicky and bit unnecessary.

Overall though the Nivea Men Ultimate Fitness Bag is excellent and great value for money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very tough and durable, 8 Sept. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is definitely the most durable lightning cable I've used to date. It's made from braided nylon so can withstand almost any kind of bending and twisting and should comfortably cope with the heavy-handedness of my kids, as they've now broken a number of the official Apple cables.

So a real 'industrial strength' cable, and the gold colour is quite distinctive looking as well, an excellent cable all round.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for babies and toddlers, 3 Sept. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The Fisher-Price Rainforest Infant Toddler Rocker is a lovely looking little thing with it's bright and vibrant colours. It's also reassuringly sturdy and secure and very flexible as it can also be adapted to be a small chair for a toddler, so it has good longevity.

The toy bar is perfect for babies, they can whack away at the cute spinning flowers, and the bar also incorporates a musical butterfly that can also vibrate the chair slightly which may (or may not!) help in getting your little one to sleep.

This is a cute and very well made and rocker, very pleased with it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Another great cream from Murad, 1 Sept. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've used Murad products before and have never been disappointed by their high quality serums. This Age Reform Time Release Retinol Concentrate is aimed more specifically at wrinkles and is not to be used as a general face moisturiser. The bottle itself is quite small but only small quantities of the concentrate needs to be used and it allows individual wrinkles to be targeted thanks to the precise applicator.

I have been using this for about 3 weeks and the wrinkles around my eyes do seem less pronounced and my skin feels smoother around the eye area, so overall I'm very pleased with the results and will continue to use it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very effective protection, 1 Sept. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
We recently used Vie Spray-On Mosquito And Insect Repellent on a holiday in Turkey and can report it gave excellent results. It doesn't need to be sprayed on thick and gives no unpleasant smell when applied. One application for us and the kids when going out of an evening was all that was required for us to remain bite-free, which was a relief, and there's still plenty left in the bottle so this is very good value.


AmazonBasics Premium Over-Ear Headphones
AmazonBasics Premium Over-Ear Headphones
Price: £35.09

4.0 out of 5 stars No thrills or gimmicks but good value, 18 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These headphones are completely black and have no branding on them whatsoever and have a very minimalist design. The headphone cable is detachable, the headband is adjustable and the ear cups are cushioned, and once on I found the headphones very comfortable.

The sound quality is perfectly adequate and about what you'd expect for such a basic set of headphones and I was pleasantly surprised by the wholesome sound they gave.

So looks-wise they're pretty plain but they certainly do their job and are a very good value for money set of headphones.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great photo-management solution that’s easy to use, 17 Aug. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have now accumulated so many digital photos over the years that organising them has become quite a mammoth task. I always store my photos using search-friendly folder names but the file names themselves are whatever the camera chooses to call them so they’re very cryptic and non-explanatory. So I’ve been desperately in need of a photo-cataloguing and management solution for a while, which is why I was looking forward to trying Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 6.

The installation of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom was fairly straightforward and once installed I got to work importing all my photos. With over 10Gb worth of photos this took a little while though was quicker than what I thought it would be. All my photos were automatically organised into virtual containers that were very easy to manipulate and tweak. This was a huge improvement on the old-fashioned flat folder structure I was using and not only enabled very quick searches but also allowed me to change how photos were catalogued very easily.

I then tried the face recognition feature, though I admit to being sceptical of this at first. But in use I found it surprisingly effective, any photos with unrecognised faces got put under ‘Unnamed’, and once I manually provided the name then the recognition got noticeably smarter. It still incorrectly tagged some photos that had no faces at all, and the whole process was a little slow, but overall I was impressed by Lightroom’s face recognition capabilities.

As well as being great for organising photos, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 6 also allows you to do some editing of those files. The editing features are nowhere near as advanced as using Photoshop, most of the editing features are very automated with little tweaking allowed, but for quick enhancing of photos I found the built-in tools very capable, and fairly nippy to use.

I’d definitely recommend Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 6 for anyone who’s looking for an easy to use and well-featured photo-management and cataloguing product.
