Fisher-Price Soothe and Glow Owl - Brown
Fisher-Price Soothe and Glow Owl - Brown
Price: £13.75

3.0 out of 5 stars Could be better., 10 Feb. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
When I saw this owl I thought it looked really lovely and would be a really nice gift. When it arrived the packaging-a white cardboard box with rather unappealing graphics-it didn't look anywhere near as nice as I had hoped.
On to the owl itself. It is a nice size, well put together-seams are well secured and the plastic yellow teething feet are securely attached. The padding could be better around the battery pack. It is a bit too hard to be truly cuddly. This takes two AA batteries. The music plays for around 15 minutes before it switches off itself. You can turn it off early by pressing and holding the toy but this is definitely not something most younger children will be able to manage.
The music is a bit loud for it to be soothing or settling.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for a small room., 30 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Roughly the size of a microwave, this oven would be great for anyone with limited room in the room/kitchen-student, caravan etc.
Have tried several different sized baking trays and sheets with no difficulty fitting them in. Comes with a tray and rack for grilling-great for toast and skewers. The two hobs heat up very quickly and evenly, however not at the same time and you can only use one hob at the same time as the oven.
Not designed for large family cooking but could also provide that extra bit of oven or grill space everyone needs when preparing a big meal. I find it useful when I am preparing meals that need grilled in the Igenix to start and then popped into my main oven which takes forever to heat up!
Have tried roasting a chicken with good results but don't think the Christmas Turkey will fit. Nice even colour on both chicken and potatoes. A little trial and error has resulted in some very nice bread, cakes and buns.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not stayproof., 26 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Not stayproof! A chunky, easy to hold and use crayon style stain. Very pink. Leaves lips very soft. Transfers onto everything it touches, but on the up side it doesn't stain clothing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for weaning and beyond., 26 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Good quality storage cups. Measurements on the sides to help monitor what you are storing or what has been used from the cup. Screw tops for the cups. Two different sized cups in the box that use the same lids. Also supplied with one weaning spoon. The cups sit in the lids to stack or provide a more stable base when feeding.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic product., 26 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Two sensitive skinned children who react to everything have had no reaction to this when used on their clothes and bedding. No residue left in clothes. No scent or odour. I can't verify the reduction in bacteria but it hasn't faded anything or caused any discolouration in the items washed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Being an all in one tablet makes this a fantastic way to take care of the dishwasher maintanance at ..., 22 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Definitely my preferred dishwasher tablet. Being an all in one tablet makes this a fantastic way to take care of the dishwasher maintanance at the same time as thoroughly cleaning the dishes.
Unlike less effective tablets my glasses come out clear-no residue or cloudiness. Even some of my cups that had been more stained than I would care to admit are looking fresher.
Silverware is nice and shiny with no scratching.
No need to try and unwrap those annoying little pouches either-these go directly into the dishwasher wrapped.
The lemon scent is nice-not too over-powering. Keeps the dishwasher smelling fresh between cycles too.


Gamestar Mechanic For Dummies (For Dummies (Computers))
Gamestar Mechanic For Dummies (For Dummies (Computers))
by Jacob Cordeiro
Edition: Paperback
Price: £20.54

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for beginners., 22 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Got this to help a young student who is getting interested in software and coding. He found the book incredibly easy to follow and has really enjoyed following the teaching games.
Setting up your account on the website is easy and free. The instructions are clear and there is no padding that you may find in other more advanced books.
Definitely for beginners, more advanced, experienced users may find it too simplistic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for home or travel., 22 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
One thing you need to know straight away is the charging of this is via 2 pin plugs so unless you have a shaver socket you will need an adaptor. This is the only downside to this nifty piece of kit.
Easy to follow instructions with good illustrations make set up a breeze. Comes with a charging glass so there is no nonsense trying to line up pins for charging. Just make sure the glass is on the base (which can't be placed on anything metal) and the base is plugged in, drop it in and you are sorted. There is also a sturdy travel case (with space for 4 heads) that chages the toothbrush via USB.
Five different modes for different types of cleaning, although these don't feel massively different. The head of the brush is a nice size and the bristles are firm but not to firm.
Needs to be charged for 24 hours before use. Seems to hold the charge quite well. Quite loud the first time you switch it on but very quickly you realise it's not actually that bad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful radio, sounds amazing., 6 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Excellent quality. Looks amazing. Very retro appearance with up to date tech. Simple to set up. Makes even local stations sound good. The display on top is discreet and means the radio doesn't look mismatched with the old dial on front. Both battery and mains powered. Can preset channels too.

Escape Fitness GripR Soft Weighted Bag - Green, 4 Kg
Price: £34.30

4.0 out of 5 stars Great idea but a little expensive., 21 Dec. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A well made product that replaces easily the rigid weights I have at home. Easy to hold due to the shape and style of manufacture-neoprene outer for grip and sand-style interior that move to allow different holds depending on the exercise you are trying to do. Furniture, floor and toe friendly, dropping this won't cause the same amount of damage as dropping a rigid plastic or metal weight. Stores easily due to the flat shape and style.
