5.0 out of 5 stars Olivia's Half-a-House, 27 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My niece's enjoyed this. The build is quite big, although not as big as you would think. Olivia's Half-a-House would have been a better name, but the amount of accessories and details more than makes up for this. The playability for this set is massive, the highlights being the swing and the easily removable sections. (both roof sections and both sides of the top floor are easily removed and played with whilst still being sturdy as a full unit). The highlight for me was the garden in front, great attention to detail throughout, but the BBQ, Swing and Lawnmower are great.

This set would work great with other LEGO Friends sets.

Biggest criticism... Not a fan of the mini-figures. The Friends mini-figures are not as well designed as the traditional mini-figures. They will not sit up, which can be very frustrating for children who want to have tea-parties etcetera. The playability of this set is great, but I would advise getting mini-figures from somewhere else and changing them around to get the maximum from this and any other LEGO Friends sets.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good little set, 27 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very happy with the delivery and the product itself.

2 vehicles, 2 mini-figures and a couple of accessories. The traffic light is a good little extra, and could be easily duplicated if you had a LEGO city in mind. The car fits nicely onto the back of the truck, and is held in place quite well. This set has a good playability value for children, and would work well with other sets fro the LEGO City range.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bargain, 27 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I chose this rating as the package arrived in perfect condition and the discount made it a very good purchase.

The pieces in this set (Bike, Bin and Firemen) can be made as specified, or used as accessories for other LEGO sets. My only problem is that the recycling bin has a grey lid when a green one would have been aesthetically more pleasing, but the bike and mini-figure are great.

A great little set, although not much in the way of actually building if that's what you enjoy... An add-on to other sets, but a good one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Series 10 Foil Pack(s), 23 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I gave this a maximum score because I got what was advertised.

What? No Mr. Gold! :'(
Only joking, if I was making this purchase to find Mr. Gold, I would be better of buying scratch-cards and then buying one directly with my winnings!

For those who don't know, this set is no longer in production, may contain the Mr. Gold mini-figure (only 5,000 made globally), and contains 1 random mini-figure from a possible 16 (17 including Mr. Gold).
For those who already knew that, I would recommend you buy these as they have not been tampered with and who knows, you could get lucky!

I should add, although it could be just luck at the time, the packs I bought had no duplicates, so I had a good start towards a complete set immediately :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Hard to find nowadays (Possible spoilers), 23 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I only gave a 4 star rating because there was a small rip on the cover, and as I had bought it as a future collectible, this small tear could be the big gaping hole that takes all future value away from it!

This book is for those who are into LEGO, or more specifically, into the LEGO Collectible Mini-figure's series. The book itself gives a page to all 160 mini-figures so far in the series (10 so far) plus two more, the ultra rare Mr. Gold and the Wind-Up Toy Soldier. Each page gives an bio of each mini-figure and some interesting facts.

The reason this book is getting harder to come by is because of the exclusive Toy Soldier mini-figure that comes with it, a piece that is a "must" for mini-figure collectors. Just for fun, go to the booksellers near you, locate the book, and then see how many have "lost" the mini-figure in front!

The book I purchased had all parts included, was clearly new as was stated and arrived safely and promptly.
This book is a must for collectors, even if it's just for the mini-figure, but have a read anyway, some of it may surprise you or at least give you an insight into the creative processes that take place at LEGO.

5.0 out of 5 stars In your hands, 23 Feb. 2014

This review is from: Logitech F310 Gamepad (Accessory)
I chose this rating as I got what I wanted, matched the description almost to the letter.
I say almost, because I had to download software from the internet to make it function, but that is probably the manufacturers fault, rather than the seller.
Item came highly recommended from many websites, usually top 10's, so it's competitive with others that cost twice as much, and I am pleased with it 100%.

I would say that this is a great product for people who enjoy playing games on their Laptop/P.C. Also, if you enjoy PlayStation and are new to P.C. gaming, then this controller should be on your wanted list as it's a very similar feel/look to SONY's award-winning controller.
Easy to pick up and play once the software is installed, and with good button feel and response, I would say it does a very good job without costing you a fortune.

Maybe not "the best" controller out there, but possibly the "best value", especially considering you can get 2 of these for the price of some others, knowing that it will do the same job just as good.

I chose this rating, as it was perfect, no scratches, tears or rips to the boxing to any degree of damage.

The item had not been tampered with in any way, all contents were included and I am extremely happy with the purchase.
