4.0 out of 5 stars Noisy but fun!, 8 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
GOt this for my four year old and he's completely sold!

First thing to note before you buy is to make sure you have enough wall space available to put this up! It suggests 4 feet by 4 feet and you wouldn't be amiss. I had to rearrange our kids room to put this up.

If you follow the instructions that are in multiple languages, it is reasonably easy to set up and get right. You do need to set aside a good 30 minutes plus to do this.

Also, the batteries required don't come with the box so make sure you buy those before you decide to set it up or you will have a very disappointed child!

The other thing to be aware that this is NOISY! We've had another wall track and it wasn't quite as noisy as this one. This is noisy because of the booster motor and the cars going so fast round the track.

This is the odd thing... you can barely see the cars travelling they are so fast. Yet my son loves it and he disappeared into his room for a good long while!

It isn't easy to have more than one car going at a time but I suppose the hope of them crashing is part of the fun!

It isn't cheap but my boy loves and I don't think it will become stale too soon!

Hope that helps.


Philips Sonicare HX6311/07 Rechargeable Toothbrush for Kids
Philips Sonicare HX6311/07 Rechargeable Toothbrush for Kids
Price: £37.45

2.0 out of 5 stars Expensive for what it is., 8 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I got this for my son who is 4 and a bit. I've always struggled with feeling like I've done a good job at brushing his teeth and felt this could help.

First impressions - it is bigger than imagined, particularly being for children. I have an electric toothbrush and this is bigger than mine!

Initially my son wasn't too impressed, however the option of four stickers definitely helped to make it 'his' so I really like that. THere is a choice between surfer dude, princess and two generic water/ocean stickers.

The noise it makes isn't loud enough to scare the children, which is good.

It seems to barely vibrate, so it wont do anywhere near as much cleaning and as adult electric toothbrhush. Also, because he keeps pulling it out of his mouth, the vibration means that it sometimes sprays a few dots of toothpaste everywhere e.g. I came to work this morning with some toothpaste spray on my trousers!

VALUE FOR MONEY

Is it value for money? I would say definitely not. If I were you, I would buy the cheaper electric toothbrushes that you get in boots. They are smaller, cheaper and I suspect, given what this one does, just as effective. I bought an adult electric toothbrush that is much more effective, smaller and half the price!

Hope that helps.


Philips Disney Princess Children's Night Light and Projector - 1 x 0.1 W Integrated LED
Philips Disney Princess Children's Night Light and Projector - 1 x 0.1 W Integrated LED
Price: £19.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice nightlight., 1 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I had bought one of the Philips disney lights a while ago thinking it would be a nice night light. However, it was far too bright to keep on during the night.

This, on the other hand isn't too bright to have as a night light and it the changeable picture helps send daughter off into a sleep with sweet princess dreams!

As other reviews have mentioned, the down side is it requires batteries rather than plugging into mains, which is a silly oversight on the part of the manufacturer.

4.0 out of 5 stars my 6 year old niece aboslutely loved it. The shoes are of a decent quality ..., 18 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It's fair to say that as a 36 year old man, I haven't tried this on myself. However, my 6 year old niece aboslutely loved it. The shoes are of a decent quality as is the full outfit.

My niece is a petite 6 year old and this only just fit her so I would recommend that you only buy for ages 3 -5, not 3-6 as advertised.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little toy, 17 July 2014
This review is from: Ambi Toys Dazzle Ball (Toy)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Great little toy for our little girl who forever needs entertaining. Each of the rings come apart and makes a different noise. She likes working her way through the various sounds. It's easy for her to hold and play with. Our little girl can be quite hard to keep entertained and this provides for good stimulation for her. it's well made and is of a good quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product!, 17 July 2014
This review is from: Galt Dr Miriam Shape Sorter (Toy)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This has been brilliant for our little girl and our 4 year old funnily enough. The baby loves the shapes and colours and the four-year-old just has a throw-back time with it. Great entertainment for them both. Good quality and well made product.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too old for 4 year olds., 15 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I don't like it because I'm reviewing this as a parent of a 4 year old. These are just not aimed at that age sadly. My son got bored very quickly. The songs are too fast in terms of the words per minute and the characters just didn't do it for him.

I would much more recommend the THeo series for anywhere between 3 - 6 year olds.

4.0 out of 5 stars The smile is worth it!, 15 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
expensive for sure... but it's good quality and the smile on your daughters face....

As is noted by other reviewers, it doesn't come with any of the dolls and those are tricky to come by indeed (and not cheap either).

The box it comes in is massive indeed so you aren't going to be able to hide this present subtley! A garage is a must.

Putting it together takes a little while though not longer than one might expect. It looks like it is going to last quite a long time - let's hope her interest in it lasts somewhere near as long!! :)
