5.0 out of 5 stars A big hit, 22 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My two love these. I originally bought them for my 10 month old but my 3 year old loves them too and often steals them from her sister when she doesn't get her own pack. By far a big hit in our house. My partner likes to test the things i buy for the children and often sticks his nose up at them because they lack the flavour an adult is used to, but he quite likes these.
The flavour is subtle and the combination is quite unusual considering you would probably expect these types of snacks to be savoury.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the price, 18 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was alittle dubious about this mat due to the fairly high price tag but i am glad i took the plunge. As soon as i took it out the box i could see the quality in not only the blanket but the bag aswell.
It is waterproof on the bottom side and has a lovely pattern and feel to the top.
The toys attached to the mat are different to that in the photo. We have (2) white flowers on ours. These are not detachable but it is not an inconvenience as the mat is so big you hardly notice them, plus i am sure our newborn will make use of them as she grows.
We have used this in our garden and in a park and can fit myself, the partner, toddler and one newborn on comfortably.
When in the bag, it is very comfortable to carry. The strap isn't shown on the photo but i can carry it easily over my shoulder and is quite light aswell.
Worth 5 stars all day long and i am sure it will last for many sunny days/park trips/picnics to come;)

I can't believe what a bargain i got when i got this pool. For a little over 13 pound even my other half can lie comfortably in this and hes quite big built. Aswell as having enough room for my toddler to play around him.
It's bright and colourful, exactly what we wanted for our little girls and can hold tonnes of water comfortably, although emptying the pool is another story but i guess that can be the case with any large inflatable pool.
Each individual ring needs inflating separately aswell as the base so i'd say a pump is a must if only to save your lungs.
All in all i am very pleased, hoping it will last for many more summers to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kitchen Essentials, 12 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These spoons are a necessity in every cooks kitchen.
I use alot of recipe books and these are essential in helping me get everything just right, beforehand we 'guessed' which was abit hit and miss really. Now i just reach for the correct spoon, and use a knife to skim the ingredients of the top so every amount required is the perfect amount, and our taste buds are thankful for it;)
Each spoon can be used on or off the ring. Which makes them simple to clean, use, and best of all when not in use are all kept together so your not hunting through your whole kitchen for the elusive spoon.
The colour is of course a classic, you cant go wrong with black. Yet the writing is written on each spoon brightly and more importantly clearly.
Combine that with the cheap price and the quality brand name you really cant go wrong.

Sea Creature Chunky Puzzle

5.0 out of 5 stars Great item for a great price, 26 Sep 2012

This review is from: Sea Creature Chunky Puzzle (Toy)
What a great puzzle this is and at an equally great price too. I have bought a few other Melissa and Doug puzzles for my daughter that have disappointed, purely because they are covered in paper. Not just the board but the pieces aswell. Meaning any young child prone to mouthing things still, will quickly ruin them.
The animals on this however are painted and very well at that. Not only on the front but the sides and back aswell although the backs are all painted in plain colours. The pieces are all thick and chunky and ideal for role play games aswell as a puzzle.
My daughter had not really taken to her other puzzles, failing to add any pieces despite trying. After about 10 minutes of receiving this, she had managed to place the seahorse and then followed the crab not long after, which she was very pleased about and gave herself a clap every time she did so. The age on this jigsaw is apparently 2+, but at 16 months shes managing fine. The only difficult piece to place is the starfish. Due to its design you can only place it one way. It would have been better if each of the points were the same, making it a lot easier to place. This is the only bad point i can find about the puzzle really. For the price i paid (3.37) This is a complete bargain.

5.0 out of 5 stars exactly as described, 26 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These stickers are great. I bought them simply to mark out recipes we have tried in our vast selection of cookery books. Using the traffic light system, red yellow and green. The other stickers i use in recipe books made for children's meals. I use the remaining orange and blue stickers depending on what my daughter does or doesn't like to eat.
Ultimately this system works really well for us but obviously they have many other uses.
None of the stickers have peeled away and we have been using them for several months now.
Would i recommend them? Yes i would.. and at such a cheap price aswell, are a bargain as far as stickers go at least.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too small for the job, 26 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We bought these on the basis that you get a stand to store the chopping boards in. Which a lot of alternatives, although cheaper do not have. Living in a small bungalow space is limited and so we do not have drawer space for them to reside in when not in use. So in this case it also helps that they look pretty good on show on your counter top.
So now for the negatives; The boards are very small. Do not expect to chop more than one or two standard sized vegetables or a cut of meat on these boards at any given time. You could of course use the other boards for the task at hand but would defeat the point of having separate boards to decrease contamination etc. So a bowl nearby is a must in this case, especially when cooking from scratch.
The boards obviously mark right from the very first slice, and in our case quite badly. (On the vegetable and meat boards that is. The fish and cooked food boards are rarely used.) Which should be expected with any boards of this material really but even so alittle disappointing considering the price tag.
Overall, i think if you have the room to store boards without a stand then id probably recommend that option simply because they cost pennies these days, and you are only paying for the brand name with these boards.
However the stand is useful for us so i can only justify 3 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect mash every time, 25 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We have a saying in our family. 'Buy cheap, buy twice' and thats exactly what we did. Before we saw the proverbial light we owned a supermarket brand masher bought out of pure convenience, and boy was that hard to use. Almost made me not want to make mash because it was so difficult to use and required alot of strength to mash, and even then the mash was full of lumps.
In comparison this masher is an absolute dream to use. I am not very strong, and yet this masher requires no strength at all to do its job. Potatoes are quickly and easily mashed resulting in lovely soft mashyness heaven.
Suffice to say i am very pleased and firmly believe this masher will last us a lifetime. It is made out of one piece of metal so will not snap like other mashers of this style i have looked at. Not to mention it looks quite classy (if a masher can be!?) and ultimately worth every penny.

Do not buy a cheaper alternative.

This is the only masher you need.

OXO Good Grips Nylon Round Turner
OXO Good Grips Nylon Round Turner
Price: £7.70

5.0 out of 5 stars Versatile, 25 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We bought all the utensils in the good grips nylon range and this one is by far the most versatile and most often one used of the lot. Whether stirring mince, used for stir frys or just general flipping-ness this excels at it all.
The nylon utensils are pretty big in size, have long handles so your hands are far away from the pan at all times. Essential when cooking with oil, and you also have a 'good grip' at all times. Infact i cant remember ever dropping any of our utensils.
There are only two small downsides i have: The handle when washed collects water, i usually leave mine to drain however if your planning to use soon after you have cleaned it this may be annoying, and speaking of cleaning. The opposite end can be slightly hard to clean after cooking meat, The edging seems to hold food well. However these are only small issues and i am very pleased with the turner and would without a doubt recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must buy!, 31 Aug 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
I bought an import copy of this game as i simply could not wait for it to be released over here to play this gem.. And yes it may not be up there with the all time greats of the genre but this really is a brilliant game that i have put a silly amount of time into and enjoyed every second of it. (and you should too)
There are an umpteen number of things to do. Even when you think you have finally finished, you find something else to sink your teeth into, whether it be the bonus chapter 'lineage and legacies' the bonus dungeons, side quests, numerous optional bosses to defeat or if you just have a competitive streak: 'the trials of graces' where you complete battles for points to score ever higher on the leaderboard. The game doesn't force you into any of these things, so if your just after a story to get engrossed into and thats all then this caters for you also, speaking of which, there a number of difficulty options available so again caters for all gamers whether hardcore or you just want to dip in. (easy, normal, moderate, hard, evil and chaos. The harder difficulties you need to unlock by completing a certain amount of battles on the previous difficulties) Chaos difficulty really does have you on your toes so to speak;)

The game really comes into its own by chapter 2. The first chapter you play as children which i wasn't overly keen on i have to admit. The game is colourful, which i adore. The characters are likeable, Hubert imparticular. Even the stereotypical Zany female character that you see in pretty much every jrpg grew on me by the end. The storyline (no spoilers) can be a little cheesy at times, but then arnt most rpgs of this type? The game doesn't try and do anything new, but thats not a bad thing. Why change something that isn't broke afterall.
The fighting is in real time rather than turn based, although i would recommend picking up the book to unlock manual battles which can be found early on in the first town, which makes the fighting feel abit more natural rather than having the battles on semi/auto. It feels like you have abit more freedom. There is plenty of skills to learn, i infact did not learn all of them and they each differ from character to character. You have the usual suspects (swordsman, gunner, healer, mage etc) and so every base is covered depending on how you like to play and ultimately want to control.

As you can see there is alot of things to talk about and i will not bore you by going through everything. Hopefully you have got a small glimpse of what a truly great game this is to play and you can discover the rest for yourself.

One tip i will give tho is to feed all the cats that you see, it will come in handy.
