5.0 out of 5 stars Quite possibly the best potty, 27 Jun 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Got this expecting it to be a "novelty" item that wouldn't last the day but boy, was I wrong! Very sturdy construction alongside bright vivid colours have made this, very quickly, a firm favourite in our house. The potty side of things has a handle to carry away any "deposits" and a close tight fitting seat style lid. The "arm" that attches the iPad holder is very well constructed and definitely not going to fall/move and risk damage. There is a plastic envelope style cover the iPad. Definitely recommend this to everyone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Quite disappointed, 10 Jun 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As a huge Gizzi fan I was really excited with the prospect of a recipe book to help along my weight loss journey. Unfortunately I have been left feeling both confused and disappointed. The recipes in the "diet" section are full of expensive and near-impossible to find ingredients that add up to quite uninspiring dishes. The "treat" section is more appealing but again the ingredient make the recipes more an aspiration than a reality.
I might try a few of the more "accessible" recipes but only for special occasions.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great for ideas, 10 Jun 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Was hoping for a more in-depth book but was slightly disappointed. It is a very basic book, mainly using cake mixes, although I did eventually find a recipe buried at the back. The ideas, however are brilliant, the templates and instructions are very useful when it comes to the construction of the cakes. Fabulous book for a beginner. The colour photographs are fantastic for helping children pick out their favourite cake. Quite a few of the sweets/characters are Australian but these could easily be adapted or switched to ones from your local store.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for the dieters amongst us., 16 May 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
First a warning to anyone watching their waist line-DO NOT READ THIS BOOK WHEN YOU ARE FEELING PECKISH!!!!!! The photographs in the book show some amazing dishes, the recipes are easy to follow and the adaptations are brilliant (for allergy sufferers/fussy eaters). Quite a few of the recipes contain suet/lard which makes them a lot naughtier than I can manage but for special occasions I will be selecting a few of the dessert recipes. A lovely read, even if you don't use the recipes. Well worth the money.

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely vile, 16 May 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I hate this with a passion. Took nearer 35-40 minutes to heat up. Removed very little hair. Left my skin looking like a pink, processed ham. The wipes provided did not remove the wax or the pinkish dye left on my legs, however they did leave a strange oily film over my legs. There are only 4 wipes and 12 waxing strips included which they say will last up to 4 uses-I don't think this would be realistic as I used 4 strips and 2 wipes for my lower legs alone. Overall very fiddly and not for me!

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it needs to, 16 April 2013
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Small, unobtrusive device that is incredibly easy to set up and has so far been very effective. Quicker speeds, no drop outs. Very impressed with this (as is my techy husband who has said it is brilliant!) Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice escapist read, 30 Jan 2013
This review is from: Husband, Missing (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Husband, Missing is a funny, romantic, heartbreaking almost mystery novel that has you hooked from the first chapter. A very easy to read and keep up with book but I found it impossible to put down (I found myself reading it when making the dinner!)
Will be a great holiday read and I can't wait to start it again.

The set arrived in a lovely box to keep them together, along with the material, pattern and instructions to make your own Cath Kidston bag. Beautiful photographs and easy to follow instructions make this seta delight and joy to read. Plenty of projects for the crafter.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, 16 Nov 2012
This review is from: Incredible Edibles (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This book wasn't what I expected. More science based information than recipes. Probably my own fault for not reading up on it. Much too advanced for the child it was intended for. More suited to teens or adults.
