Me to You Tiny Tatty Teddy Gift Set for a Baby Girl
Me to You Tiny Tatty Teddy Gift Set for a Baby Girl
Price: £49.50

4.0 out of 5 stars Would not describe this as a gift set., 11 Nov 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As this is described as a gift set I was expecting it to be presented as such. However it arrived in a brown cardboard box with brown paper packing material and the individual items loose in the box.
The only piece that would make this a baby girl set is the very pale pink T-shirt on the small teddy buggy toy. Red trim and bunting on the books and box.
The fold out blanket bear is so soft and very cute. I can see this becoming a favourite snuggle toy/blanket.
The photo album and keepsake book are very cute and both have plenty of space for lots of pictures and little mementos.
Nice little birth certificate box which seems quite sturdy


simplehuman Compact Sensor Pump, 222 ml - Brushed Nickel
simplehuman Compact Sensor Pump, 222 ml - Brushed Nickel
Price: £39.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant for the bathroom or kitchen, 11 Nov 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A very sleek piece of kit. Comes with a USB lead to charge up the dispenser and a sachet/sample of the simplehuman own brand hand soap. Very clear instructions make charging and use easy.
Clear soap container at the back so you can see when you are running low and need a top up. Small, discreet light on the top to let you know what the charge situation is-turns red when needs charged, otherwise is green.
A little fiddly to get the USB charge point cover off but I suppose it keeps the water out of the unit. Another tiny issue is filling the soap container-the opening is quite small and it will take a steady hand to avoid spillage.
There is also a voucher included for a discount on a soap refill from the website but it's for $5 so will need to see if the UK will honour the voucher.
A nice size and dispenses a good amount of hand soap. You can adjust the amount by pressing the + and - buttons on top of the unit.

Kipling Women's Lowie Purse K15439B15 Black Animal Bg
Price: £23.63

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality., 10 Nov 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Well stitched. Good quality materials. Very cute little monkey key ring attached. Sturdy clip to attach wrist strap. Six pockets for cards. One zip section inside. Open side pocket. Not the most delicate or pretty bag but plenty of room for all the bits and pieces you need for a night out. Without the wrist strap could easily be used as an every day purse.

Mitre Eccita V12 Ball - White/Purp/Blk/Fifa Ins - 5
Price: £20.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality ball, 10 Nov 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Well stitched football that seems to me to be good quality. The footballers in the family are very impressed with the ball and prefer it to other ones they have. I found it easy to inflate with the pump I had at home. Has stayed up since the day I inflated it, despite the best efforts of the footballers to test it to destruction. We had the adult size 5 but the kids still found it easy to play with. The coating on the ball is having the desired effect and no scratches or damage so far.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not great, 6 Nov 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
First thing first, not for an unsupervised 8 year old. More suitable for ten years plus to work with and even then they may need some assistance. The need to access online tutorials means more adult interaction is needed than for an ordinary craft kit.
Not the highest quality craft kit I have purchased. Some of the clasps and other elements crack and break as soon as you try to use them.
With a little ingenuity you can make the suggested 6 bracelets but it does take more time and effort. The magazine is more fluff than educational or interesting.

4.0 out of 5 stars So far, so good., 6 Nov 2014
This review is from: Anxiety Wrap (Misc.)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
One very stressed and nervous small collie plus two young children makes for a lot of shaking and hiding from said collie. Getting the coat on the dog was a lot easier than I expected, especially done in a quiet room away from distractions and disturbances.
Having the wrap on did not upset the dog which is a bonus in itself. She seemed quite happy with it on almost immediately.
After a few days of getting used to the wrap, it was time to put it to the test and bring in the children. I was incredibly doubtful of any real difference. Surprisingly enough though, the dog was upset and nervous at first but she calmed down very quickly which is a huge change.


Classic British Comedies The DVD Board Game
Classic British Comedies The DVD Board Game
Price: £21.17

4.0 out of 5 stars Great family fun., 6 Nov 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Good family fun that everyone (with a decent sense of humour) will enjoy. Clips from 14 great comedy series that brought lots of good memories back.
The younger family members can still join in when there are observational questions, older members will be driving themselves crazy trying to remember bits from the different series.
We played in teams of 2&3. One or two younger players with an adult. A good way to answer all the 3 levels of questions.
As there are only 4 play pieces you are restricted to 4 players/teams unless you make your own.
I could definitely see a future volume or ten to include the series that have been missed out.


Tacwise 1038 Hobby 53EL Kit
Tacwise 1038 Hobby 53EL Kit
Price: £26.04

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for DIY, 29 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
So far I haven't been brave enough to try this on any "final" projects but the test usage has been better than I expected. The instruction booklet is worse than useless-the photos that are included are almost impossible to make out and the written instructions are no use. Comes with a few different sized staples and tacks which will be good for different projects. A small amount of pressure with the free hand means that the staples and tacks will lie flush, without the pressure the staples and tacks sit slightly raised and they may need hammered in for a better finish.
The cable attached is very short and this may cause problems unless you have an extension lead.
The tool for removing the staples is a little fiddly but once you have managed to figure it out it works well.


Braun Thermoscan IRT 3020 Compact Ear Thermometer
Braun Thermoscan IRT 3020 Compact Ear Thermometer
Price: £26.39

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic for families., 29 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Easy to use, especially with wriggly or upset children. Very clear display which is easy to read. Accurate reading compared to a regular under arm thermometer. Incredibly simple to use; put on cover, insert in ear and push the button, read display. Would be better if there was a storage case to keep the thermometer and covers together but this is not a big issue.

AutoCAD 2015 and AutoCAD LT 2015 Essentials: Autodesk Official Press

Edition: Paperback
Price: £23.11

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for beginners., 24 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
An easy to understand beginners guide to AutoCAD. Very informative and at the same time not over the top with technical language. The practice tasks alone really make the book a worthwhile purchase. The layout is great and means you can use it like both a study guide and a reference book.
