5.0 out of 5 stars A must for nappy changing parents, 24 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We first discovered these while my wife was in labour at the hospital. I managed to 'borrow' a few before we left and found they were almost as important as the nappies. If you can spare the extra cash then get them, they sit perfectly on the changing mat, they make sure your babies pee get's soaked if they decide to go while changing and most importantly those poocano moments are hassle free and quickly sorted out without the carnage. Just wrap everything up and dispose of in the nappy bin. Should be a baby best seller in my book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant but not perfect, 24 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Last Of Us (PS3) (Video Game)
For those that have played the Uncharted series of games can expect a very similar gaming experience. It's a near perfect third person atmospheric game with an really enjoyable, challenging and exciting story mode. The intuitive controls and often neat challenges throughout the game make the game feel original and addictive. The story is what really makes this game shine, as an older gamer that has been brought up on Jet Set Willy, Wonder boy et al its rare that i'm remotely bothered about the story and i'm really only concerned with the gameplay. This game has bucked the trend by using short and sweet cut sequences and then throwing you into it, again those that have played Uncharted will understand this. The story also throws in some surprises and I found myself wanting to know what was going to happen with the characters. One of the few downsides to the game is the friendlies AI can be very inconsistent e.g. guards not spotting your 'in game' colleagues even when they're in front of them etc. There are a few other niggles but nothing that lets the game down. Its a must for PS3 owners and on a par with Uncharted for gameplay but beats them both on story.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great Camera, decent price, UPDATE now broken, 24 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Update to review:

I initially gave this camera 4 stars but I have now amended to 1 star because it has broken six months since purchase. Seems to be a similar problem to other people, sound has gone which is more important than the video. No obvious way of replacing either so will have to purchase another monitor. I would suggest looking at alternative options and piece of advice from a new Dad, videos are a 'nice to have' but not really needed. The sound is key to any baby monitor, if money is a concern, get a sound only monitor.

Initial review.

I shopped around for ages trying to get the right camera for my new born. I'm a big techie and found it hard to be sold into any one camera, most lacked HD video (bizarre in this day and age) and all seemed a bit ugly (this included). This camera still hasn't not won me over on looks but it does it's job brilliantly well. It has a great battery, really clear audio and the picture (while still not HD) is perfectly fit for purpose with a good night mode to boot. I would highly recommend this to any new parent or Dad looking for the right camera, it must be the best camera per pound you can get.

If you need to know the flaws (which shouldn't stop you getting it), they are: Odd navigation system on the buttons, terrible nursery music, although my daughter loves it and the camera could do with a clip/grip on the base. Other than that, stop looking and get this, save yourself some time, you'll be very happy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Your other half will hate it!, 25 Jun 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
What a fantastic, beautiful game!

Usually I find it very difficult to get into games that you really need to dedicate some hours to get into it. This game is different, right from the start you can't help but admire the depth and diverse nature of games foundations.

Combining many game genres under this impressive Western background, you get totally engrossed in its realism and gameplay. Not only in the main plot but hours are whisked away bounty hunting, treasure hunting, capturing wild horses, slaying various animals for skins, teeth, feathers and claws. Play poker, dice, black jack etc. It's actually about 30 games in one and does all of it very, very well.

Word of warning, if you're in a relationship and they're not always impressed by time spent playing games on the console; don't understand that if you're in the middle of a shootout you can't also be involved in conversation, maybe this isn't the game for you!
