4.0 out of 5 stars Recommended, 28 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Dog toys nowadays can be very expensive. This is one I consider reasonably priced in comparison to other toys on Amazon, but very expensive when you compare it to buying a cheap tennis ball. However, what you're buying (or more accurately, buying into) here is the environmentally friendly characteristics and general eco-friendly ethos of the brand, which is something you have to take for granted.

But as well as that there are some features that will prove popular. What I personally liked about this hollow ball, which in my case is the medium size, was that for my small dog who has a small jaw, it nonetheless proved well-designed enough for him to pick it up in his mouth due to its squashy form and yet it threw like a normal ball, so a perfect compromise.

The real test will be whether it lasts over time, which will only (obviously) be apparent over time. Dog toys do degrade and and get damaged and break over time, but if the material of this ball proves so flimsy it can't take some light chewing, for the current price of £4-5 I wouldn't be replacing it with another.

I guess time will tell, but on the evidence of a few days use it's recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Thomas, what's not to love?!, 28 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As an avid watcher of Thomas the Tank Engine back in the day, I probably love this product as much if not more than my nephew.

I was very surprised by the price of this versatile toy at around £16 when I ordered, now cheaper- I think this is superb value for money, considering it's based on a popular children's series, appears durable and can provide many hours of enjoyment in spite of there being no complex inner workings.

This is a small item designed for young toddlers, perfect for my nephew who is fascinated by it. It's cheap, so there aren't lots of bells and whistles, but that's what makes it so satisfying as an adult to see so much fun being gained from such a simple pleasure.

Highly recommended.


Earth Rated Biodegradable Lavender-Scented Dog Waste Bags, 60 Refill Rolls, 900-Count
Earth Rated Biodegradable Lavender-Scented Dog Waste Bags, 60 Refill Rolls, 900-Count
Price: £32.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Durable Doggy Bags, 28 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These 'Earth Rated' doggy bags are a different type to those I usually use, which are the basic and very cheap black bags that many other dog owners will be familiar with. Besides the colour those ones are different in that they are shaped with tie handles at the top. This does make them much easier to tie than these 'Earth Rated' bags, which lack that (basic) facility. However, in their favour, these bags are of a much better quality i.e. much thicker and with the added bonus of being scented. Unlike some other reviewers I found the scent pleasant and subtle. If these had the tie handles, I would consider them perfect, but given that they don't I shall probably in time revert back to the cheap black bags.

In this massive box I would estimate you get not just weeks or months supply, but years (perhaps even enough to last the lifespan of your pooch), but with the price not currently being described for this product it's not possible to guage whether or not you get value for money.

Definitely recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Can't help but be impressed, 21 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Understandable though it is that given the current -and continuing- economic downturn most of us are looking for ways to save rather than spend money, I can't help but be impressed by these Lenor Unstoppables.

The product is very easy to use and the results- instantaneous.

Granted another product on top of washing powder and freshener seems ludicrous (especially at the price of this product, which is extortionate), but what the product says it will do it does exactly and the fragrance that permeates your washing machine and clothes is wonderful.

However, it's impossible to recommend at the current price, particularly as it's very easy to use a large amount of the beads in one shake.


Tefal Pro Express Total Steam Generator Iron GV8975 - Purple

5.0 out of 5 stars Very expensive, but value for money high-performance steam generator, 18 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The Total X-pert GV8975 steam generator is not one of the best value steam generators on the market, but with the continual advancements Tefal make with these goods, it's clearly one of the best options for customers. It's as streamlined and compact as many of its predecessors and, as expected, has been designed with consideration for the aesthetic as well as the durability.

There are handy features such as the retractable power cord (which is something that is a lot more common nowadays with consumer electronics such as irons and vacuums) and the gradiated clothing ability that allows you to adjust the settings to provide improved performance depending on the type of material being ironed. While initially there is a fascination value with the adjustable settings (linen/cotton, wool/silk and synthetic), some may find the constant adjusting tiresome. But the other steam generators on the market that are automatic don't offer nearly as good general performance as Tefal.

Tefal are clearly cornering the market on steam generators, such is the attention to detail and high-performance in the range of their products.

Recommended.


Braun Face 810 Facial Epilator and Facial Cleansing Brush
Braun Face 810 Facial Epilator and Facial Cleansing Brush
Price: £37.54

5.0 out of 5 stars A well-priced product that really works, 18 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
One of the best performance and easy to use facial epilators on the market today.

Braun is a trusted and reliable brand with a great deal of experience in epilators and offer here a product that is pleasingly pain-free.

The combined package of facial epilator and cleansing brush is a very useful option not widely available elsewhere.

The pleasing design and easy-to-follow instructions are a bonus.

Highly recommended.

Braun Silk Epil 9 9-549 Wet & Dry Cordless Epilator with 4 Extra Attachments
Price: £99.19

5.0 out of 5 stars An expensive, high-end option that really works, 18 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
One of the best performance and easy to use epilators on the market today.

Braun is a trusted and reliable brand with a great deal of experience in epilators and offer here a product refined from earlier models with the wider head that covers more surface area and is perceptibly more pain-free.

A combined package with a face as well as leg epilator is also available by Braun at a similar price. Some users may prefer to save money by buying together.

The pleasing design and easy-to-follow instructions are a bonus.

Highly recommended.

One of the best performance and easy to use epilators on the market today.

Braun is a trusted and reliable brand with a great deal of experience in epilators and offer here a product refined from earlier models with the wider head that covers more surface area and is perceptibly more pain-free.

The combined package of the leg and face epilator combo is likely to reflect the high price. Some users may prefer to buy separately and pay less, but be reassured that both products perform superbly.

The pleasing design and easy-to-follow instructions are a bonus.

Highly recommended.


Ultrasport Electrical Dartboard
Ultrasport Electrical Dartboard
Price: £63.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Adequate quality, 18 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
When you first open the box the dartboard itself and the wealth of accessories is really reassuring of a quality product. The instructions are very informative, detailing all the interesting and varied game options, which are instructive without being overwhelming or difficult to decipher.

The first negative point that struck me with this product was the moulded plastic of the dartboard case which does not look particularly appealing; especially not when you have this permanently fixed on your wall (which you need to). I would have paid more for something more presentable.

The problem with the darts themselves bouncing, which is obviously the most basic disadvantage of a dartboard you could imagine, is adequately offset by the setting which allows users to accept or reject the score. So this shouldn't necessarily put off potential buyers. However, given that such a problem exists and is one which Ultrasport is clearly aware of, but haven't rectified, it may be inferred this product will not be particularly long-lasting.

While you get quite a bit for your money with this dartboard and there's a lot of fun to be had thanks to how its marketed, the retail price doesn't reflect the value, but the lack of any high-end alternatives (whether well-reviewed or otherwise) means this may be your best option.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good size & pleasant scent, 12 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Pleasantly scented household wipes (although I far prefer the lemon & lime).

In the usual, efficient type of packaging you'd expect for a product of this type.

I would say perhaps the purchase price, as some others have noted, is a little high considering the quantity of wipes. Therefore the subscribe & save is the best option.

Despite the cost however the pack is generous and I'd estimate would last an average household at least a month of general use.

I have used these only on kitchen counters and the results have been great. Only downside seems to be that they leave the surface a little soapy for a short time after use.
