4.0 out of 5 stars It's a brick!, 8 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Kept an Xperia Z2 a Samsung Galaxy S4 charged over a week (with pretty heavy use - as satnav and camera) and two little mp3 players as a bonus. Following disappointing experiences with a cheap solar charger and a powerbrick, nice to get one that does what it's supposed to!


German Grammar Drills
German Grammar Drills

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievably useful!, 30 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: German Grammar Drills (Paperback)
This is a great book. Finally I have clear and simple explanations of the complex machinery of German grammar and some exercises that are really helping me to get to grips with it. Probably not for beginners, but from intermediate level.

Wish it were a bit smaller - easier for use on my commute (but then, there'd be less in it). Wish (in contradiction of previous wish) that there were even more exercises. If it delivered on these two things, I'd be even more effusive!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome album, 12 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: follow me down (Audio CD)
One of the best albums I've bought in years (I've not bought many this century, I admit, but the fact I knuckled down and bought this one surely speaks volumes for its awesomeness).

American folk/bluegrass with a little bit of new-ness and a whole lot of exceptional musicianship. Annabelle Lee is a killer. But it's certainly not the only one on here.

5.0 out of 5 stars 7-year-old girl gripped, 29 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Witches (Paperback)
Took this on holiday just in case bad weather kept us cooped up in a caravan for a fortnight. Weather was good to us, as it happened, but we still read the book through. My 5 year old did like it, but 7-year-old couldn't get enough. I'd sit reading it to her for an hour and she would demand more (this from a girls who has difficulty sitting through a quick meal). Not too scary. Engaging characters. Brilliant, original concepts. Dahl totally rules. Still.

Since re-read it with both of them. And Dahl still totally rules. Still.

4.0 out of 5 stars Original story had my daughters leaping with joy, 29 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Can't believe I'm only giving this 4 stars. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory went down so well with my 7 and 5 year old daughters that it had them on their feet, whooping at the key moments, all the way through. Youngest took it into school for show-and-tell (and then, when she got the pop-up version, did the same with that).

BUT, I just couldn't get them into the Great Glass Elevator. Somehow the concept/telling just didn't grab them and we've twice given up just a couple of chapters in. So I can't give this edition the five stars that the original story so clearly deserves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Knock-out pop-up for fans, 29 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My girls (7 and 5) loved the story so much (in original format) that the younger one asked for a pop-up version. Couldn't believe my luck to find that one existed. And it is excellent. Nice to be able to re-read the story in a shorter form (and I'm asked to do so frequently). Sometimes spectacular cardboard mechanics. Daughter so proud of it that she took it into school for show-and-tell!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great gift for a hyperactive 7-year-old girl and her 5-year-old sister, 29 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My daughter got this (and other Lego Friends sets) for her birthday and Xmas last year. They really hold her attention when building them. She's spent time (with and without adult help) both following the instructions and getting creative, building dream homes, etc. She's spent time playing rock-star/ballerina in various adventures. It's great that Lego is now doing girl-friendly stuff, and it's such a phenomenally good toy that adults are keen to spend time on it with the kids.

My 5-year-old has also enjoyed Lego friends stuff - she might need a little more help building anything extensive, but it's certainly not beyond her.

All the sets we've got are really nice and this one, with the revolving platform, is particularly cool.

Now they're into Lego, we have an infinite demand for more. I just wish it were a little cheaper.

Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my daughter's most valued possessions, 29 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a beautiful edition with really nice re-tellings of some great Dickens' stories. Oliver Twist, A Tale of Two Cities and Great Expectations went down very well. Bleak House, not so much - too convoluted a soap opera to hold my daughter's attention. Haven't yet read her David Copperfield (I'm halfway through the original version - don't want to spoil it!). I believe she now considers this book one of her most valued possessions!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thwart your family, 12 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lego 3841 Games - Minotaurus (Toy)
This game is awesome! Building it with my girls (7 and 5) was fun, then they proceeded to thrash me at the game repeatedly (both of them ganged up on me, so it wasn't really fair!). Then I spent days playing it with my in-laws. Everyone loved the simplicity - like ludo, race to the middle (and, like ludo, we played first player to get all their pieces home) - combined with the ability to thwart, frustrate and, quite frankly, victimise other players.

Nice one, Lego!
