5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, 14 May 2014
This review is from: The Road to Reckoning (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a wonderfully gripping novel. The author has clearly research well and marvellously evokes the time and places. The chapters are quite brief, which makes this a great novel read before bed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thomas Potty, 2 May 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
We've yet to use this for potty training, but it looks useful, and it's certainly making a good step and seat that our children love. Hopefully our youngest will become familiar with this and feel comfortable to use it when potty training starts.

The unit feels tough and is easy to dissemble and clean. The sound is activates when liquids in the pan enable a connection between two contacts. It scrolls through four pieces -- the Thomas The Tank Engine theme and three steam engine samples, which are a little similar. These sounds are okay, but I'm sure Fisher-Price could have made them more exciting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Instant hit, 2 May 2014
This review is from: Leapfrog Sing and Play Farm (Toy)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This was an instant hit with both our 1 year old and our 3 year old, and a few weeks later they still enjoy playing with it. It's a great toy for quick distraction.

The is a good range of controls to play with, ranging from very simple push-down ones, to ones such as switches, doors and turn-keys that require more dexterity. Operating the controls produces an enticing range of ditties, animals sounds and noises. The sound level can be set to high, low or off. The unit feels tough and seems well made.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good boot liner, 29 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was unsure if this would fit the 2014 Jazz, so I phoned the company using the phone numbers listed above. The Unique Car Mats sales man was very helpful and double-checked for me. The mat arrived today, and it fits perfectly as promised.

At the time of purchase, the mat was offered with a free velour tailored carpet insert, which is a useful addition.

3.0 out of 5 stars Expensive -- check the EPA and DHA before you order, 23 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Like some other reviewers, the strength of the product I received was weaker than the one advertised. The ones I received were 300mg rather than 500mg advertised, with each capsule containing 36 mg EPA and 16.5 mg DHA, which is far below the 250 mg of EPA and DHA manufactures, including MegaRed claim is needed. On a positive note, the capsules are small, easy to swallow and there is no fishy reflux.


Russell Hobbs Precision Kettle - 1.5 Litre - Black
Russell Hobbs Precision Kettle - 1.5 Litre - Black

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful temperature gauge and keep-warm, but not the best design or quality, 23 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The kettle boils quickly and is reasonably quite. The temperature reading at the front is bright, clear and surprisingly useful. We're using the kettle in an office, and it's nice to see from afar whether the kettle needs reheating.

The keep warm facility can maintain the temperature for 40 minutes, which is quite handy in a busy office where making coffee is constantly delayed by distractions. The temperature display highlights how quickly the water temperature falls, suggesting better insulation would complement the keep warm facility.

Unfortunately the fill gauge is at the back of the kettle and is not very clear. You have to turn the kettle around and lift it to see how full it is. Also, the materials feel quite cheap and the handle is uncomfortable to hold. The lid doesn't open fully, so you can't clean inside the kettle and its hinge looks flimsy.

If you want the keep warm facility, then the kettle is worth considering, otherwise I would recommend the Philips HD4644/00 White Energy Efficient Kettle, 3000 Watt - 1.7 Litre.

PROS: reasonably quick and quite; clear temperature gauge; the keep warm function is useful.

CONS: lid feels fragile; fill gauge is at the back and difficult to see; uncomfortable handle.

Price: £76.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Wireless Smart Guide is surpising useful, 4 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I thought the Wireless Smart Guide would be a gimmick, and only bought this version because it was on offer and cheaper than the version without the Wireless Smart Guide. However, I’ve actually found the Wireless Smart Guide really useful. It has a timer split into four 30-second periods, one for each quarter of your mouth. It also flashes a warning when you brush too hard. Such information may not sound helpful, and in fact is presented by the brush via beeps and red lights anyway, but having the feedback displayed by the Smart Guide on the shelf in front of you as you brush really does enhance the feedback and helps you pace the brushing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful book, 4 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This book covers all the questions typically asked at interviews. The advice in the book seems really helpful. What I really liked is the way each question is discussed. The author explains what the interviewer is really looking for, and then lists a couple of helpful examples of recommended answers. I’m not normally impressed by Dummies books, but this is certainly one where the Dummies style and layout enhance things and make the book quick to scan and easy to digest.

Price: £35.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Cot Bed Mattress, 3 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Fits our cot-bed well and seems comfy – our young child sleeps well on this. The detachable cover is very handy for washing. It seems to be good quality and well made. No complaints so far, and it seems a big improvement on the foam mattress supplied with our cot.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality, good fitting, 25 Mar. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The quality of this cotton sheet is as good as any you would buy in one of the leading high-street shops. In fact, its fully elasticated fitting comprehensively wraps the mattress far better than most other sheets. As other reviewers have said, the sky blue colour is not really sky blue, but more like turquoise -- worth bearing in mind if you are hoping to match colours.
