Earth Rated Lavender-Scented Dog Waste Bags,900-Count,60 Refill Rolls
Earth Rated Lavender-Scented Dog Waste Bags,900-Count,60 Refill Rolls

5.0 out of 5 stars Very strong smell!, 30 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
You really need to like the smell of lavender with these bags. Opening the box immediately fills the room with a quite overpowering scent. The box they arrive in is very sturdy so will be good for storing the rolls in. The two little holders provided are very sturdy and the clip fastener clips easily onto a belt loop or bag. The bags are very thick-compared to some others. Have had no issues with rips or tears. The scent comes into its own once the bags are in use.

4.0 out of 5 stars A hit in our house, 27 April 2015
This review is from: Toy Story Battlesaurs Trixie (Toy)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My 3 year old is dinosaur mad and loves Toy Story. I thought this would appeal to him. I was right. As soon as he saw the package he was over the moon and ripped straight into it. Easy to open packaging. It is smaller than I thought it would be and the horns and spikes are quite sharp and pointy. The limbs, tail and head all have slight movement. The armour is attached so won't disappear into the bottom of the toy box. Very sturdy little toy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not even a case of style over substance., 12 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Easy to set up on wireless network. Not particularly stylish, rather large but good (not great) sound quality.
Very limited in what apps it will play from, ie cannot play from iTunes, Google music, or Amazon music-Spotify needs a premium account to work with it.
There is an AllPlay radio app which has a large selection of stations. Panasonic Music Streaming app is going to be the main method of playing your personal music library and it is terrible. There is no search function available so you need to manually scroll through to find tracks-extremely inconvenient when you have hundreds of albums. There is also a noticable lag when scrolling through the library which adds to the frustration. There is no ability/option to create playlists which is a very basic requirement these days.
The main drawbacks with the speaker are the limited number of compatible apps you can play from and the main Panasonic app being so poor, but both these issues could be rectified by the manufacturer and would greatly improve the product but until then my strong recommendation is to avoid unless you are maybe a Spotify Premium customer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Photos do not do this justice., 12 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A wonderfully put together plush. Well stitched seams. Very vibrant colours (however it was pointed out to me by my 3 year old that the hair colour is different than the tv version!). Both my 5 year old and 3 year old have fallen in love with their very own Phoebe. Perfect for cuddling though not for sleeping as the mouth area is a little too hard. The key necklace is a stitched on piece of fabric as opposed to a removeable accessory. Much prefer this as it won't get lost or break. The hair casts a little when you first open the packaging so a few wipes across it stops the fibres from covering everything. A brilliant size for both children. Again much better than the photographs would indicate. A great gift for any Furchester Hotel fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Horrendously frustrating packaging., 8 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is not the test for you if you are I a big hurry. It took so long to get into the packaging I had to wait until the next time I needed to pee to actually use it. There are two sealed tests in the box so I would most definitely recommend having them sitting ready to be used but out of the box.
Read through the enclosed instruction leaflet if you are not familiar with the brand or you could find yourself unsure of the results as it is shown differently with these tests than other brands.
The tests themselves are easy to hold and easy to use. Good wide grip and a much larger urine target area than some tests I have used before. The test pad turns pink when wet so this comfirms it has been hit. Works very quickly but remember as with all these tests those few minutes will seem to be the longest in your life.
The control window will show a line to confirm the test has worked and then either a second line (-) will appear in the result window to show a negative result or a plus sign (+) for a positive result.
Overall these tests are quite expensive but are worth the money if you want to be very sure of the reliability of the result.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for sport!, 21 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My husband tried this when he was at the gym. He found it easy to fit using a mirror the first time just to get the proper placement. Once he had it in he said it was comfortable and fitting it on subsequent occasions was easier and a mirror wasn't necessary.
It stayed in place during his work out and he found a massive increase in his breathing ability during exercise. The small "barbs" felt odd at first but once it had been in for a while he didn't notice them.
Washing before and after is a suggestion made by the manufacturer that my husband would insist is a total necessity. The pre-use wash does not affect the grip or function so please for hygiene's sake just wash it.
After reading other reviews from people who used the sports version for sleeping we decided to postpone our review until trying it as an anti-snoring device. I am very glad we did. It works much better than the nasal strips or anti-snoring spray. A few nights using this reduced my husbands snoring and increased my ability to get some sleep. My husband said it was fine to sleep with the dilator in place. It did not slep or dislodge during the night.
Well worth the cost but could become expensive if you want to replace it every three months as is recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars A portable swing that is truly portable., 21 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Love the colours, love the pattern, even love the sounds/music. Not impressed with the short length of time this can be used when you take into account the price. It states in the ad on Amazon that it can be used up to 25lbs (which is 11.3kg) however on the product itself it states 9kg which converts to 19.8lbs.
Well padded seat that can be machine washed. The 5 point safety harness is very secure and mush better than the round the tummy ones on other models.
The small floor space needed when the swim is being used is great but what is even better is the fact that it closes up to a sensible size and shape, unlike other models. Easy to store away making it an excellent idea for holidays, trips to grandparents house or to visit friends without feeling that you are taking over.
Converts easily to a seat using a clip mechanism that is simple to use.
The speed of the swing can take a bit of getting used to but we had no problems after the first few uses.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Amazing AmiGami Product, 21 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My daughter is a massive AmiGami fan and this did not disappoint. Comes with the usual stickers, shaped card accessories and curler but also has a fantastic crimping tool.
Suitable from age 6- any younger and they might struggle with using the tools. The stickers are reusable and all of the accessories can be used with the different figures so if inspiration strikes there are no difficulties.
Beautiful bright colours all over the figures and the accessories are very appealing. The figures will stand a bit of bashing as they are good and sturdy.
The crimping tool seems able to cope with ordinary strips of paper and card as well as the ones included in the kit so it can be used for other projects.
Everyone will love the fact that you don't need glue, scissors, tape etc for these crafts. I can definitely see these being a must have Christmas/birthday gift in our house and the durability and reusable accessories more than justifies the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the money, 15 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Arrives well packaged. Pleased to find I didn't need a degree in engineering to open the packaging. Very fast transfer speeds with no lag. No difficulties transferring data on or off the memory card. Excellent value for money and matches with quality the more expensive brands I have tried before.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great idea but it doesn't work, 15 Mar. 2015
This review is from: Quiet Dog (Misc.)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Got this with hopes of helping my mother-in-laws's dog not bark as much when she is out of the house. He is a very loud beagle who barks at everything. Trying to get this on him was a total nightmare and once it was on he spent the whole time pawing at his head. After speaking to another dog owner, we decided to give the item a second try with a very shy, timid collie. Total failure yet again. Hated getting it on and spent a long time trying to paw it off.
