5.0 out of 5 stars Best flotation device for children without doubt, 5 April 2014
This is a superb flotation device and definitely the best there is - far better than armbands or a flotation jacket. It's the only device that I've come across that allows you to leave your little one floating in the water - with all the others I've always had to hang onto them to stop their mouth dipping into the water or them twisting onto their back and getting stuck and panicked. It seems to hold the child at a perfect angle in the water and allows them to be completely independent and experience the water as they wish. The first time my 3-year old son used this he made more progress in swimming in 30mins than he did in the previous 3 months. It really does allow them (and you) worry-free swimming. It essentially consists of a single unit composed of arm bands and a chest flotation strap that buckles at the back - it's the combination of the bands and chest flotation that sets this apart from anything else. I can't rate it highly enough - it really is the best flotation device out there.

This review is from: Tree Fu Tom Ultimate Tom (Toy)
I thought I'd write a review on this toy given the mixed reviews so far and the fact that some of the 5-star reviews were from people who had bought as a Xmas present and were little more than patting themselves on the back for buying such a great toy that hadn't actually yet been given to the child...... With it being near to Xmas and many parents debating as to whether to buy this toy I also wanted to dispel some of the so-called problems experienced by other purchasers:

1. The wings DO come off but that DOESN'T mean it's broken! The wings come off in order to access the battery compartment at the back of the toy. That said, it is a little irritating when they come off during play. That is easily solved - the battery compartment can still be accessed adequately (tiny bit more fiddly) even if the wings are attached, so all I have done is apply a thin smear of superglue to the inside circumference of the attachment - at the point where the wing attaches to Tom. Job done - wings don't come off again and the battery compartment can still be accessed.
2. If Tom keeps repeating the same phrase then it's time to change the batteries - that is all!
3. The instructions supplied with the toy clearly state that the batteries supplied are "demo-batteries" only and should be replaced immediately. That is true! Within 2 hours of my son using it, the toy started to repeat the same phrase over and over. All that was required was a change of batteries and it went back to normal again. The batteries needed are AG13 size (watch-size) and you'll need 3 of them. You can either buy Duracell ones from B&Q at £4.98 for 2 (I kid you not) or you can buy them from Amazon for £1.49 for 20 (Eunicell). They have been superb and lasted a long time and at that price are a great buy. Amazon do sell Duracell AG13's as well but the reviews are not good due to the seller selling ones close to their 'Best Before' date. You don't need Duracell anyway as the Eunicell ones really are great.

As to the toy itself; it really is superb. Tom's belt has 2 buttons on it that provide 30 phrases from the series as well as the sapstone lighting up; the holopax on his wrist also lights up and more phrases come out. The button on his chest opens his wings and when he's off-vertical the theme music plays over and over. His legs, arms and head also move. Sound quality is excellent and the voice is the same voice used in the TV series.

My son has had this toy for 3 weeks now, takes it everywhere with him, plays with it incessantly and it has stood up to it all. This is a great toy and I would definitely recommend it. My top tip for anyone buying it is to purchase the Eunicell batteries at the same time (you WILL need them!) as well as a small tube of super-glue. Have all that ready for Xmas Day then you can sit back, relax, watch your son playing with his new toy and bathe in the warm glow that you really are the best parent in the whole world!

1.0 out of 5 stars Jammed harness - been through 2 Tobi's, 18 Sep 2013
I have had 2 Maxi Cosi Tobi's and both of them have been unusable due to the harness jamming - one within a year and the other just after 2 years. I had no idea it was a common fault with them and thought it was just down to bad luck. Having read the reviews on here, I now think different. I shall not be buying the Tobi again, that's for sure!

5.0 out of 5 stars Classy, 30 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very classy looking tax disc holder if you're into the detailing on your car. Attaches easily and pretty much invisibly. Twist-off back is a lot easier than the 'allen key' version I had before. I have a black Audi, so complements that nicely. This, along with the Audi tyre valve caps and centre wheel caps, also sold by Amazon, looks great!

Weber's Complete Barbecue Book: Step-by-step advice and over 150 delicious barbecue recipes
by Jamie Purviance
Edition: Paperback
Price: £11.19

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantasic book, 30 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Everything you ever wanted or needed to know to get the best out of your Weber. Contains all the info about how to BBQ - staruing from basics - and how to 'work' the Weber to get the temperature control for different foods and also suggestions for arranging coals to cope with different volumes of food or mixed types of food. I bought the book primarily for that but the best thing has to be the recipes. They are superb, absolutely delicious! They use 'regular' ingredients that you can pick up from your local supermarket, instructions are plainly and clearly set out and you won't find them in other recipe books. My wife loves it as she no longer cooks at the weekend leaving it all to me. I love it as the best food of the week is now at the weekends (but I don't tell her that!). If you have a Weber, you MUST get this book - it would be worth it even if it cost 10x the price!

5.0 out of 5 stars Look good, 30 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Product exactly as described - in particular the dimensions, which is critical. Looks great on my Audi and smartens the alloys up nicely. The internal spring makes them quite stiff, so they need a bit of 'coaxing' to get on but the upside is that they aren't going to fall off. Try these along with the Audi tyre valve caps and a bit of Wonder Wheels and your car will look a whole lot better!
