Melissa & Doug Mermaid Costume
Melissa & Doug Mermaid Costume
Price: 15.88

4.0 out of 5 stars Well made., 30 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a quality product, very well made. My nearly five year old granddaughter loved it and happily played all afternoon in it. The one criticism is it was a little tight around the hips. She is a very active child and no way overweight but she is not five until September. This is supposed to be for 3-6 year olds. The length was right though. Good quality and double stitching everywhere so highly recommended by Lily.

4.0 out of 5 stars Looks good., 19 July 2014

Looked great out of the box. Then we discovered that our 18 month Grandson has grown more than we thought. Sadly the castle was not made to bounce on carpet. Probably looks a bit more like the original now though!

4.0 out of 5 stars Reassuringly weighty., 19 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Yes it is heavier than my other iron (also a Philips), but I like that. No need to press as hard to get the creases out! Not sure about this ability to detect the fabric so it automatically sets the right temperature. It does seem to take a long time to warm up. Also if you iron creases in trousers by using a damp cloth it does not work. I don't know if the automatic heat thingy gets confused but it was no where near hot enough so had to use my old iron. Otherwise very pleased with it and does a good job. Looks good too!

4.0 out of 5 stars Quality., 22 Jun 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have tried many Sennheiser headphones before (though not gamers). The quality is always top notch. I would say the equivalent price point for HiFi would be the Momentums. The sound quality of these is not as good as the Momentums but then they are not designed for listening to classical music all day long. The microphone is very good. They are comfortable and look good.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for small lawns., 22 Jun 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Assembly was reasonably straight forward (once I stopped trying to attach the wrong round thing to the main body!). The instructions are a little confusing but luckily there are not too many parts to put together. For anyone who is used to electric mowers and is tempted with something like this, don't bother. This is for heavy duty grass/weed removal. Too big/heavy/noisy for trimming the lawn. For anyone who has not used petrol lawn trimmers/mowers before you not only have to remember to take your petrol can to the garage with you next time (assuming you have already purchased one), you also have to purchase a small container of two stroke oil. Not particularly expensive but petrol plus oil plus possible purchase of container for petrol does add to the cost and the time before you can start using the trimmer. Electric ones can be used as soon as assembled. Admittedly with an annoying cable which gets in the way or is never long enough! Big disadvantage for me (as well as the weight/noise/smell) is the spool. I hate these things, the spool line never feeds properly in my experience. This one was no different, lasted about twenty seconds before the spool line disappeared.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good standard book for average home DIYer., 16 Jun 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Yes this is aimed at the novice, for people who have never done any DIY. But it is a very useful reference book for anyone who gets involved in DIY in the home. I may have been doing it for over thirty years but there was plenty in this book which I found useful. Recommended for novices and occasional DIYers!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good., 16 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not in a box and no instructions (would have liked to have known what size of drill bit to use, that would have saved some time and experimentation!). However once fixed into the beam in the garage roof it is solid as a rock. It does allow 360 degree turning of the punch bag (contrary to what another reviewer says) and very important that it does. Recommended for anyone who buys a punchbag as the fixings in mine were for a wall.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use and set up., 16 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Tripled my hard disc space available with buying this. My first computer had a 6.4gb capacity and that was a lot in 1998! Both our computers are now backed up to this little device. It also allowed easy transfer to a new computer bought this week. The USB 3 thing is especially good, particularly with the usb 3 on the new computer. I have not experienced the problems some of the other reviewers have on here. Presumably this one is well made. Very easy to use out of the box, no complaints.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not impressed., 16 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not finding this useful at all. I guess it is cheap but I did expect more from all the reviews I have read on here. It seems to bleep randomly as you turn it up. I don't know whether it is because I am turning it up or whether there are indeed wires and pipes behind the wall. I need to be confident in a product that is designed to prevent disasters in the home. This product does not fill me with confidence so I cannot recommend or use it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent., 16 Jun 2014

Easy to handle and does a very good job. The larger handle makes it much easier to hold and much easier to do the pruning. Good quality as usual from Spear and Jackson. Bought to replace another product where the spring had gone very quickly.
