4.0 out of 5 stars for example "Missing Microbes" or Lustig's book on sugar which manage to be informative and fascinating and fun to read simultan, 28 April 2016

Very interesting tho not written in a captivating way, unlike, for example "Missing Microbes" or Lustig's book on sugar which manage to be informative and fascinating and fun to read simultaneously

I love Kit Heath jewellery-always high quality with interesting designs. This necklace is so elegant and pretty. I absolutely love it. I think it's a bit overpriced for what it is but I'm glad I bought it as it is really lovely.

2.0 out of 5 stars Flimsy, 16 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This kit arrived with the jigsaw blade bent (the protective cap was taped to the side of the machine rather than being on top of the blade protecting it). It was only used for a couple of hours in total (over two days) with close adult supervision and it's now almost unusable. Its an absolutely brilliant idea and my 7 year old was absolutely delighted with it. But it is unfortunately flimsy and unreliable. We'll ask for a replacement in case we got a dud kit but we don't have our hopes up and will likely look for a much higher quality, more expensive kit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for all ages, 4 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This encyclopedia really is just incredible. We have countless books and use the library regularly but no book on any subject has been as brilliant as these DK encyclopaedias. They have just the right amount of content and interesting photos on each page for a 6/7 year old and beyond. The information is concise, not dumbed down but not needlessly complicated either. Absolutely fascinating contents too which is very well organised. I've found usborne books tend to be all over the place with very poorly organised content. This is ideal. It's also brilliant for a curious adult or toddler.

These are the least durable trousers I've ever bought my son. They fit beautifully and look gorgeous on but after only a few (very light) wears theres a big hole on the knee! They are lined but the outer fabric is far too thin for purpose.

I really don't like how this storage thing doesn't hold its shape at all. I like storage boxes and baskets that are solid and keep their shape regardless of what you put in them. It looks pretty messy otherwise

2.0 out of 5 stars Very tricky and fiddly., 3 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We bought this kit for our 6 year old who is massively into engineering and who has a mechanical engineer father. Yet the kit is so difficult to assemble and the instructions really are not clear at all. For example, all three of us have tried to assemble the car on page 42 but none of us have managed. Its so fiddly and unclear and after several attempts we've given up.

This kit compares very poorly with, for example, the John Adams Hot Wires electronics kit which is extremely easy to use (numbered parts, very large, very clear instructions). There's no reason for a physics discovery kit to be this tricky to use and its saying something if a person with two engineering masters degrees can't simply and quickly put it together.

Im sure the kit will be loads of fun once we've got it working but I think we'll wait a couple of years until our son has the patience to figure it out himself

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!, 27 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have an issue with my kidneys so if I get even a teeny bit cold I need to wee which is a real pain if you're in the middle of the woods or in a playground with no clean toilets nearby. So I have to dress up really warm as soon as it gets to about 15c outside. And these leggings work a treat. Incredibly they keep my legs warm the entire time, even when they don't have another layer on top. Also incredibly I never feel like my legs are too hot either and even tho I get eczema from synthetic fibres I've even slept in these and not had any itching or skin complaints whatsoever. Going to order another pair. Absolutely fab and I feel happy I'll have something to keep my legs warm when camping in spring
