Cushe Mens Cushe M Brown/Brown Slippers UM00708B 6 UK, 40 EU
Offered by Laird Enterprises Ltd
Price: £20.25

5.0 out of 5 stars Cool & comfy; slippers re-invented. Streets ahead of the usual velour/tartan affair. Get mum to buy you these for Xmas instead!, 18 Nov. 2014
At first glance, with their canvas uppers, these appear a little flimsy and uncomfortable-looking. Once on however, they're incredibly lightweight and *really* comfy, they look really good too. I'm not usually one for slippers, but these are cool and so comfy, I wear them all the time. They're also a lot tougher than first impressions give too. Had mine almost a year and they're still perfect.


The Prisoner of Heaven (The Cemetery of Forgotten Series Book 3)

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent enough, but a squeeze-in book which pales next to Shadow of the Wind, 30 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Clearly just a stop-gap book (no spoilers tho!) and whilst it's not as good as Shadow of the Wind, Zafon fans will probably get enough out of it. For me the book didn't really go anywhere. More the biography of Fermin and just adds some filler to the trilogy

5.0 out of 5 stars Heck am I really buying pyjamas? If you need some, these are cooler than the regular dad-wear and feel comfy!, 30 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So the time has come in my life when I need to wear these again. I wanted something other than the standard run-of-the-mill stripes dad-wear and these really do look funky yet feel comfy and warm!

Wasn't sure about the multi coloured blue version, so chose the slightly less garish black/grey and I really like them.

Sizing the pants are a little long & large, but the top fits well. Better to be slightly loose in pyjamas than too tight. I'm about 6ft and 175lbs/12 st

5.0 out of 5 stars My son loves this. So much more fun than a stroller/buggy. The best thing I've bought my son to date!, 30 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This gets comments from people wherever we go. My 2-year old son loves it and it's almost as practical as a traditional buggy/ stroller.

Putting it together takes a little time. It's not difficult to assemble, but just quite a lot to out together.

Being able to steer from the back really makes this trike. My boy had another un steerable version which was useless at his age, but this makes manoeuvring simple (easier than a buggy!)

Look out for the items around the £100-mark as I've seen these listed for over £350. It's well worth it, but not at that full price. It's quite large and doesn't collapse (aside from removing the steering handle/canopy), so a small boot/trunk would struggle to fit it. The upside to this is that it really looks so cool. Feels very well built too and we regularly run off down the street with it together! Should last him quite a while.

Minor issues; the front wheel has a locking hub (for when they're too small to reach the pedals) and has to be really pushed in place in order to stop the noise of the pedals when they're freewheeling (not sure why it needs to make this noise). Having stopped that we then found the front wheel/pedal cranks needed a liberal dosing of WD40 to stop an embarrassing squeak! The steering is a little sloppy and needs tightening with a socket rather than the adjustable wrench which they suggest.

These are very minor though and I'm really happy with the overall product as my boy just loves it. He even climbs onto the back to e pushed around and it makes any trip outside really fun! Excellent!

Simple and neat solution, but then there's not much to go wrong! Does the job well and didn't cost the earth!

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to set up, unobtrusive and sounds far better than standard TV speakers - great value!, 12 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really simple to set up with a Samsung TV (just plug and go) - Sound is wonderful by comparison to the standard TV setup and without the faff of setting up rear speakers. The sub is reasonably small enough to hide away and the bar pretty much disappears under the TV, so you really don't notice it and the TV/media set up doesn't dominate your lounge.

Remote is ok, but the only negative is that it could be a little more integrated for Samsung TVs (since it's designed for these) so that you could lose one of the remotes. As it is, you need the two for using the SmartTV functions and volume control from the bar.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice enough read, though strong bias to USA, 12 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice enough read with lots of reports and stats, though it's strongly biased to US magazines (as are most of these Brooklands Portfolio's to be fair).


Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse
Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse
Price: £41.46

5.0 out of 5 stars really nice feel - easy to use and store, 12 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice flat-fold mechanism that makes it easy to transport and which automatically switches the mouse off (how many times do we forget to do that?!!). The USB dongle is easily stuck to the magnetic surface of the mouse and in all it's nice and flat to pack in your laptop bag (unlike the fat conventional versions which always bulge out!)

Great to use, needs a couple of minutes to familiarise with as the movement feels a little odd at first. Persevere and you won't be disappointed. I especially like the feedback feel when using the "wheel" button in the centre (not actually a wheel, but a touch-surface). Really pleased with this, Microsoft can do ergonomics too, it seems!
