Melissa & Doug Reusable Sticker Pad Vehicles

4.0 out of 5 stars Re useable fun, 15 Aug. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My 4 year old son absolutely loves playing with these stickers. There are tons of them and its easy to created different scenes over and over again. The scene pages do come away from the book but I found that this made them more easily damages and easier to lose the sticks too. It would be good if pages were more firmly attached so the pages are more protected and can place stickers back on pages.
Any child who loves transport will love this. With airport, train, harbour, work site and road scene there is plenty of fun to be had.

4.0 out of 5 stars Colourful stamping fun, 31 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My son age 4 absolutely loved these stamps and for once I didn't find them too girly which most of these general sets are but I think still no good for older boys. There is a good choice of stamps and the little wooden handles were easy to hold. The ink pad provided had a good 6 colours but was very small and after only a bit of use and continued stamping the colours were hard to see through. They were very easily mixed. A set of pencils were also provided with the stamp set but not really used. Had a great deal of fun with this product and have no doubt my son will continue to do so. The stamps are well made and will likely out last the interest of any child but the stamp pad will need replacing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots to do & create, 18 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My son absolutely loved his set as soon as he saw it and I was quite impressed at the array of art equipment in the pack. Even more son when I checked what it was selling for. There are 3 different types of paint, including several pots, paint pens and a shield full of 'water paints. As painting is one of my sons favourite thing to do this was an ideal set for him. There where several things in the set to use including card shapes, post cards and art pad although the pad is just plain paper. Would have been improved with pictures.
Overall a great set for young ones to get creative with.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy & colourful, 18 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Brightly coloured attracting the attention of little eyes. Although my 1 year old wasn't quite sure what to do with it for a while even once I showed him to use the hammer to hit the 'worms' he tended to drop the hammer and just use his hands to push the worms. Don't think he quite has co-ordination to use hammer effectively yet but am sure he will soon.
The toy is very well made as you would expect of something designed to be 'pounded'. It's fallen down the stairs and been bashed against bars. Have no doubt that this is a toy that will last!

This is a well made product with bright colours and should be popular but for some reason neither of my little ones particular like to play with it so it's hard to say it's good points.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well made and suitable for variety of young ages, 26 Jun. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A really wonderful puzzle for young children my 3 year old needs help with it but will put in all the animal shaped pieces by himself letting him feel quite accomplished. It's well made and solid but my two little terrors did demolish the box it was stored in quite quickly. It will be great for the children as they get older too so long lasting which is a requirement for any toy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid and fun Toy., 16 Jun. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A very solid and fun toy for my little one to play with. He is only tottering about at the moment so can't pull it along with him but when I pull it he enjoys chasing after it and his big brother likes this game too. The dog wags it's head and tail as it moves which attracts the little ones attention and encourages him to play with it.

It's solidly made and have no worries about it breaking and believe it will entertain my little one for sometime since his older brother enjoys playing with it also. The only thing I dislike about it is its tail. My little one fell onto it and it clearly hurt. Although the tail is rounded to stop any serious damage it does protrude quite abit so could be a problem for the very little ones.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good solid Toy, 16 Jun. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a very well made toy. Very solid and hard for little hands to break no matter what they bash it against! My little one has just turned a year and mostly enjoyed dragging it around by the key. He found the key opening and closing it quite entertaining. We help him to post the shapes as he is not up to that yet but it's well designed as it also helps teach colour matching as all of each shape are the same colour which also matches the corresponding slot on the shape sorter. My nearly 4 year old also enjoyed playing with this toy. I think the fact that you get to use a key to open it really appeals to him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun & educational, 16 May 2014
This review is from: Galt Giant Floor Puzzle Farm (Toy)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Our son has never really got on with smaller puzzles for his age (3 years) but when this came he was super excited and loved putting it together with his dad. Instead of traditional puzzle of just having to match very random bits of pictures several pieces are whole animals which our son loved trying to fit in with the puzzle. It gave him something to focus on. Our son has asked to do the puzzle several itme since we got it and have no doubt he will continue to enjoy putting the puzzle together.

This is a great puzzle to help develope problem solving skills both with an adult for younger children and independently for slightly older children. Both a fun and educational product.

4.0 out of 5 stars Funny and sweet, 15 May 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
After Lexi catches her husband cheating she heads home to start a business all over. But her homing coming isn't exactly as she planned running into her ex husbands best friend in a rather embarrassing outfit. To top it off she finds her Grandma has set her up on dozens of blind dates.

Marco has always had a thing for Lexi but would never have made a move on his best friends girl. But with Lexi back in town and in need of a fake boyfriend to get out of her dates it's getting really hard to remember that he should only be thinking of her as a friend.

I really enjoyed this book. The characters were clearly meant to be and it was a funny and sweet story. They were both very likeable although you do feel annoyed at the total blindness of the characters and their feelings for each other. It is a very charming story.
