Well-Goal Assorted Food Novelty Cute Pencil Rubber Eraser Erasers Stationery Ice Cream Cake Kid Fun Toy
Well-Goal Assorted Food Novelty Cute Pencil Rubber Eraser Erasers Stationery Ice Cream Cake Kid Fun Toy
Offered by GNWE
Price: £1.13

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed., 25 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Annoyed to get 2 identical sets (since they claim to send a random selection, I was expecting more variety), of which 2 of the rubbers are not even pictured here, and are very disappointing. Would not buy again. The erasers we received were fine, apart from the 2 bearing no resemblance to anything pictured, which are rubbish.

Crocs Karin Girls' Clogs - Navy, 13 UK Child (30-31 EU)

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice style variant on typical crocs, 21 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Lovely crocs, which my daughter (8) immediately preferred to the previous style. She has also had crocs flip flops, which have been brilliant.
These fit as expected, and stay on better than original crocs. Somehow they do immediately look "girly", so certainly not something my son would consider wearing. Crocs, in my experience, tend to get passed on through several children, so these are more limited in that respect. Great shoes, though.


Ubbi Wipes Dispenser (Grey)
Ubbi Wipes Dispenser (Grey)
Price: £19.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice baby luxury item, 7 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I received this as a free product to review through the Vine programme, but I didn't receive this Wipes dispenser, but the more expensive caddy into which it fits.
The caddy does not come with the dispenser so I am unable to review the latter. Hopefully Amazon can sort this out so that the reviews are not misleading (I see this has happened to another Vine reviewer as well).
The caddy is great, although quite expensive for what it is. it is easy to wipe clean, and holds all the odds and ends you need, including nappies, wipes, nappy sacks, cotton wool, spare clothes etc. There is a carrying handle, and a drawer. It includes a thin foam changing mat as well.
There are plenty of other products which do the job of storing your changing stuff perfectly well, but I do quite like being able to carry this around the house so easily. It will have a second life as my cleaning caddy, I expect, to whisk around with me full of cleaning sprays and cloths, once the baby is out of nappies.
Overall, it is a nice item, but still very expensive. Perhaps the ideal baby shower gift?


Post-it Recycled Notes - Canary Yellow - Tower Pack Of 24 Pads - 38 mm x 51 mm
Post-it Recycled Notes - Canary Yellow - Tower Pack Of 24 Pads - 38 mm x 51 mm
Offered by Choice Stationery Supplies Limited
Price: £13.78

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value set of post-its, 5 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Good value pack of recycled paper post it notes. They are the real thing, and perform as expected.
The set I was sent was a multicoloured version, only 12 packs (not 24), and cellophane wrapped, not in the tower pack. This did not detract from their role, and they have been very useful.


Mitre Pursue Professional Match Netball - White/Magenta/Purple, Size 5
Mitre Pursue Professional Match Netball - White/Magenta/Purple, Size 5
Price: £29.82

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality. NB DEFLATED!, 26 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Superb quality netball, easy to grip, and very popular with the girls who have used it since arrival.
It does arrive deflated, and comes without instructions or a kit for inflation. You will need a pump and needle.
We have not found a huge difference between this and cheaper balls, but if you are playing at club/ professional level, then I dare say the difference is more apparent.

Polished Ammonite Fossil 110 million years old! Stocking Filler / Birthday Gift - Free Postage!
Offered by SilverGEO
Price: £2.28

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish, 20 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Absolute rubbish, and I'm most disappointed. Received a shiny flat featureless near-circle of stone, with chipped edges, bearing no discernible ammonite markings, and no resemblance to the picture, with an inexplicable bit of furry sellotape partially peeling off the unpolished side. Expensive junk. Will be returning this.


Whole Box (24) x Mini Bowling Alley Game - Party Bag Toy
Whole Box (24) x Mini Bowling Alley Game - Party Bag Toy

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun as a cheap cracker/ party bag toy, 20 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very cheap and poor quality toys, but nonetheless a bit hit with the 8 year olds at my daughter's bowling party who each received one in their party bag. We found they broke within a few days, but were fun while they lasted. Buying in bulk is well worth it. Paying more than, say 50p for these would be a rip-off. You get 8 each of three colours, each in a cellophane wrapper, so once opened, the little skittles and balls get lost quickly. Fiddly to set up the game without knocking over the skittles in the process, but held a child's attention for a while and led to little competitions etc. Of course you don't expect great quality at this price, but they are an entertaining novelty. I'd buy them again for future parties.


3M 8822 Cup Shaped Particulate Respirator - White (3-Piece)
3M 8822 Cup Shaped Particulate Respirator - White (3-Piece)
Price: £9.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Good effect, 20 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Got these for some very dirty DIY jobs involving wood dust and cement dust. They performed well, in that the nose and mouth area were clear of debris while the uncovered bits of face and body were caked in particulate matter by the end of each job. They are less uncomfortable than some other products we have used, and did not cause sweating. They did not interfere with breathing. You can still smell eg paint, and they do not remove the necessity to ensure adequate ventilation.
An essential part of any DIYers protective equipment.


Zyliss Swift Dry Salad Spinner, Green, Large
Zyliss Swift Dry Salad Spinner, Green, Large
Price: £18.00

5.0 out of 5 stars So far so good., 19 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Pleased with this. I find salad spinners a very satisfactory way of drying washed salad leaves quickly and without crushing them. But they tend not to last very long, and the mechanism gives up quite quickly. So far I have only been using this for a month, but it seems sturdy, is easy to use, and gives good results. Easy to clean as well. I'll keep you posted...


Rapesco 94 Desk Top Pencil Sharpener - For all 8 - 11.75mm Pencils - Black
Rapesco 94 Desk Top Pencil Sharpener - For all 8 - 11.75mm Pencils - Black
Price: £9.57

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly swift and efficient, 15 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Really efficient sharpener; you actually have to be careful not to sharpen your pencil down to nothing as it only takes one turn or less for rapier-sharpness!
Comes with a clamp for attachment to a work surface, but we didn't find this helped particularly. Hugely popular with the children who have sharpened everything in the house, and whose pencil cases have never looked so well-kept.
Useful for any home/ office.
