5.0 out of 5 stars Superb case and excellent design, 6 Nov. 2014
This is an excellent case for a 13 inch MacBook
The design itself is very contemporary and stylish and looks spectacular with its marble effect, and the two part case fits like an absolute dream onto your laptop. Once on it is very snug and secure although, with a little bit of patience, it can be removed
Once again Gymle has provided an exceptional piece of tech accessory

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb deapth and open to many uses, 5 Nov. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This bag is frankly huge!
It advertises itself as a football / rugby bag and you could certainly fit everything you need into it including the balls.
The main compartment is extremely deep, you can easily take a couple of towels with you if planning a family swimming session for example.
The brand is the good side of affordability and the extra pockets and compartments are ideal for phones and wallets although not sure a decent pair of football boots would easily fit in them.
Some parts of the lining feel a bit thinning and I wonder just how durable they will be after being used for some rough and tumble packing but I can't take a star down for that so in my opinion it is just great, absolutely great

4.0 out of 5 stars Kept a lot of kids happy, 1 Nov. 2014
This review is from: Cobra Attack Game (Toy)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I brought this out at a Hallowe'en party and what a life saver! The kids were completely enthralled with it.
It is an excellent variation of What's the Time Mr Wolf where the eyes in the basket change from red to green and you can only approach the basket on green, if you move during red, the sensors pick up on it and the snake emerges like a jack in the box.
So, a couple of tiny criticisms, more observations.
1) there is an introduction, which for the first two times is fun, but actually it takes about 20 -30 seconds of music and hissing which when you have 20 children playing they can't hear it anyway and then don't know when to start.
2) no one won. Now I had a large group of kids, and I changed the difficulty settings but at no time did they get close to the basket before the snake jumped out. I wonder if it is a bit too sensitive
However, what an excellent game, whether for small or large groups it really is so much fun

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent case for the iphone5, 26 Oct. 2014
This is an excellent case for the iPhone 5. It fits like a dream, adds no weight at all and is extremely stylish in its appearance. All the buttons are still accessible and most importantly to me I can still use it in my dock without needing to remove it everytime so It can stay on indefinitely now.
All in all a very snazzy and functional piece of kit and I'm very happy

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended, 25 Oct. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It's the best!
Wifi with over 6 hours of battery life.
When you start it up you get to pick a free game, My godson picked monster Reserve, it's like candy crush meets word search and it's helping him with his spelling and problem solving. The sound, camera and arts apps are all made to a high spec as well. I would recommend the leap pad 3 to everyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars So much better than Gillette, 21 Oct. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Let me be honest, I've been a wilkinson hydro fan for a few yap ears now, ever since I got fed up of Gillette continually bringing out another new version with a price to match.
So I took a risk and tried this as it had just come out then and have never gone back. I have a very thick beard and genuinely feel that the wilkinson hydro is much sharper and lasts much much longer than Gillette.
So this device is the next best thing for me, right? Well, just about, I really want a razor to shave and not to worry about the trimming and grooming side but I was hoping for a lot. The edge trimmer works okay but as I just have sideburns I couldn't really put it to the test although the trimmer was really nice for (carefully) doing eyebrows and manually trimming the sideburns before I get to the barber.
Overall, this is a superb razor but if I'm honest, I don't need the extras so will stick to my manual Hydro 5 razor and never look on Gillette again

4.0 out of 5 stars Really nice retro sleeve, 21 Oct. 2014
This is a really nice retro style sleeve for a 13inch device (although the 11 nice MacBook didn't look too odd in it either.
There is some padding in the sleeve and this is my one minor criticism as it is a bit plasticky and cheap sounding, I would have liked some foam or other cushioning but that's perhaps a personal preference.
The whole style however is so cool, it's a nice subtle retro design win and excellent colour pallete and the fastener is a nice simple technige of having a back stichtd piece of leather to act as the "lock"
Overall I'm thrilled with this and am so glad I got it

1.0 out of 5 stars Simply not up to the job, 20 Oct. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
While I fully accept that this is the "mini" model it still should work better than it does.
The food must be cut quite small so the first thing to consider is why not just continue to cut the food yourself? An onion must be cut with quite military precision to fit in the allotted space and when you do get the size right it still doesn't work because the blades don't retract fully so after the first press it gets jammed.
I tried something small, mushrooms. And still it got jammed straight away with massive pieces of mushroom still attached to the blade and causing a quite perilous rescue mission to remove them from the sharp blades

After three attempts I simply gave up, completely useless as a mini version, let's hope the bigger model is better
