Monster High - Freaky Fab Double: 13 Wishes & Ghouls Rule [DVD]
Monster High - Freaky Fab Double: 13 Wishes & Ghouls Rule [DVD]
Price: 10.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Great viewing, 6 Mar 2014

My 7 year old loves this and we have to watch them frequently. They are good quality animation and similar to Barbie films, except i prefer them to barbie because while it is all about goodness winning in the end etc they truly do encourage diversity and you dont have to be blonde to be intelligent, kind and beautiful - (but you do have to be thin!)

Wanted as dressing table, completely unsuitable for such, may be better for a computer desk, but quality is not great.


Moshi Monsters Mash Up 2 Tin Game
Moshi Monsters Mash Up 2 Tin Game
Offered by UK Seller Worldwide Shipper
Price: 5.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 11 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For the price this is not great. Don't for a moment think your child is going to open the tin and find it full of goodies - on the contrary it is mostly plastic insert and a few cards. If you want somewhere to store cards, moshis etc its a very nice tin indeed - but overall not very exciting for a child to receive.


Sense and Sensibility: Diaries and Screenplay
Sense and Sensibility: Diaries and Screenplay
by Emma Thompson
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, 11 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a really beautifully presented book, with good quality paper and with the script, photos and diary - a perfect present for any lover of the film (buy if for yourself if thats you!). For me the real highlight is the diary, which is absorbing, funny and moving. Emma Thompsons thoughts are interesting from the point of view of how the film came together, and what the actors and directors went through, and also absolutely hilarious! She really does make you laugh out loud with her observations. Overall highly recommended and something you will want to read over and over again.

This review is from: Cat costume for girls (Toy)
Ordered this and hoped for best as sizing seemed vague - it is about a 3/4 year old age. The material is very suitable for a cat, in a strokeable black plush with velcro up the back and a velcro on tail, but it has (randomly) a pink leopard print tummy. however as my little girl was quite specific that she wanted a purple and black cat costume this was as close as i could get. It also has feathery fur around the cuffs, ankles and end of tail which my little girl loves, but is actually horrendous as she left a trail of black feather wherever she went (including, embarassingly, over various relatives houses). However the costume seems fairly well made and durable so i was pleased with that. The main problem was with the cat ears because the alice band was too wide for her head so had no grip and kept falling off, otherwise i would have given this another star. You could probably pin it in place with a couple of grips, but i grabbed a set she already had and disaster was averted. Overall my daughter loved this costume, just be on stand by with a vacuum cleaner and a few hair grips.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Read for any Horse Lover, 6 Nov 2012
When i saw this book was still available i as overcome with a rush of emotion and felt very affected by it - i loved this series of books so much as a child and still treasure my books to this day (a great many years later!)I cannot tell you how many times i read this book, indeed the whole series. I didnt have much money as a child but when i saw a new book by this author i immediately had to have it. Even though some of the terminology was strange to me, as it is set in the Austrailian outback, I was totally entranced by this world, written from a horse view point. The horses were so beautifully written and their struggles against man and each other so real. It really gave me food for thought about how horses behave and react, what is important to them, and how man treats them - it is not a cosy tale of adventures down at the local riding stables, but a vast and majestical tale that is still easy to read and totally enthralling. Thowra is magnificent and you will fall in love with him as he develops from gangly foal into a couragous, wise and wily shining silver stallion. You will also care about his family and friends and feel their ups and downs as they deal with life in the outback. I would recommend it for any horselover from about ten and into adulthood. I have never read any other stories like them, they are just true timeless classics. Please do give them a try, and you will be transported into another world.

This is a fantastic album, whether you are new to Moes work or a dedicated fan. Worth every penny and cannot recommend highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shakespeares bargain!, 24 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This set was a fantastic price for 5 books, and the stories themselves are a great read. I love the true blood and grave series' by the same author and was looking forward to reading a non-supernatural series from her - i was not dissapointed. The stories move along at a fair old lick, and i love the heroine, who is a girl of few words but much action! My only regret is that none of the stories were written recently, so i suspect they have been abandoned for the more successful true blood series. In summation i would say that the books are easy to read but very hard to put down - would highly recommend to readers of crime fiction and Charlaines other series'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Amazing, 6 Feb 2012
this is one of those films that gets shown very late at night on tv when everyone has gone to bed. i just happened to flick onto it and thought i'd watch a minute or two before getting some zzzzzs. My expectations were absolute zero, I had even missed the opening credits and had no idea what i was watching. An hour later i realised that i hadnt gone to bed, in fact i had been having a great time. This film is so lovingly done, very clever, and is absolutely hilarious. You wont regret giving this a go!
