Rapesco A4+ 3-Flap Folio Elasticated - Assorted Transparent Colours, Pack of 5
Rapesco A4+ 3-Flap Folio Elasticated - Assorted Transparent Colours, Pack of 5
Price: £11.36

1.0 out of 5 stars Seem a bit fragile - one of mine arrived cracked, texture sets my teeth on edge and inner elastic dents your paper., 3 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These are lightweight, thin and have a very weird texture like raised, horizontal fingerprints which makes it easy for them to crack and split and well as being strange and urggh feeling to hold. They arrive well boxed so the damage happened pre packaging which doesn't bode well for the lifespan of them being carried around or shoved in school bags. The inner flaps fold over to keep your papers in place and the outer elastic secures everything although the inner elastic is thick and stands proud denting your papers/artwork. Not a fan ...


HoMedics Dual Shiatsu Foot Massager
HoMedics Dual Shiatsu Foot Massager
Offered by HoMedics Group
Price: £59.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Wear your socks with this hard plastic lumpy massage with heat, 3 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
For some reason I was expecting this foot massager to be gentle gel filled pads but it's very hard plastic balls under a thin layer of material which whirrs about. You are also advised to wear socks while the massage is happening. I don't know about you but I feel more relaxed with my socks off.
It's the sort of thing you may chose to gift a relative but the packaging, instructions and machine look basic and there is a rather alarming message inside warning you the product might smell on opening and to air it out for 24 hours if this is the case. There is also an oversized packet of gel filled crystals to absorb any moisture so I am not sure what causes the pong.
Safety cautions include to consult your dr before using this if you are pregnant or use a pacemaker.
Do not use on infants, sleeping or unconscious people.
Do not use on sensitive skin or if you have poor circulation or a sensory deficiency in the lower half of your body.
Do not use as treatment directly on swollen or inflamed areas.

It heats up so you are advised not to use it if it gets too hot or if you are insensitive to heat.

It's easy to use. You have to use it sitting so it's up to you how much pressure you use to a comfortable level. You press the power button once to get it working and twice to add heat to the mix. To turn it off you press power until everything stops or there is an automatic shut off after 15 mins.


SnoozeShade Original Deluxe - Blackout Blind for Prams and Pushchairs
SnoozeShade Original Deluxe - Blackout Blind for Prams and Pushchairs
Price: £24.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality, 2 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This sunshade arrived boxed unlike all the others I've used which had plastic cases perhaps making it look like a smarter gift item although the plastic versions are great as they provide a waterproof case. You still get the standard mesh bag which keeps your shade small when not in use.
This is one of the one layered versions with a smart silver fabric with black elastic trim which stretches to fit your pushchair frame. Velcro tabs keeps the cover securely in place. There is a central horizontal zip down the centre of the fabric. It blocks out virtually all uv rays and helps your child snooze longer while being safer and better than a coat or blanket draped over your pushchair.
The fabric, zips, elastic and Velcro are strong and excellent quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Looks great, lightweight and easy to fit, 2 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a very lightweight sunshade with 2 layers. The outer layer can be zipped up or down. The quality of the material, stitching, elastic and zips is great. The grey elastic trim looks smart and stretches to fit. Velcro strips attach the cover safely to your pushchair frame. It blocks out light and virtually all uv rays with both layers up. It's much better than using a coat etc to shield your child from the elements and helps them snooze longer. A great addition to any pushchair.

5.0 out of 5 stars Also works over a Pram carrycot flat base, 2 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is an ingenious breathable single fabric layer of material with lots of tiny holes which virtually blocks out all sunlight and 99% of uv rays. It's got an attractive grey elastic trim which fits any single pushchair with Velcro straps to further secure it to the frame. A central vertical zip makes if easy to check on your child.
It's extremely lightweight and small to store in its mesh bag making it easy to carry around.
You can also attach this over a Pram carrycot using the Pram handle to secure the bottom of the cover.


SnoozeShade Sunshade and Sleep Aid for Infant Car Seats (Group 0/0 Plus)
SnoozeShade Sunshade and Sleep Aid for Infant Car Seats (Group 0/0 Plus)
Price: £23.47

5.0 out of 5 stars Small and lightweight, 2 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is an excellent quality sunshade in all black with neon orange trims. The stitching and zippers are great quality Unlike the deluxe version there are no poppers on the outer layer of fabric holding it in place, just Velcro. You need to remember to fasten the Velcro together in the washing machine so it doesn't snag the fabric. The fabric has lots of tiny holes making it very breathable and it blacks 99% of the Suns uv rays when both layers of fabric are up; 80% when one layer is down. The sunshade fits well to all my different first stage car seats with Velcro and the stretchy elastic trim works well to fit. It's very lightweight and small to carry and comes with a mesh storage bag.
Aesthetically I like the look of the silver deluxe version better but this is a great sunshade that blocks out more uv.

5.0 out of 5 stars Small and very weightless. Very handy., 2 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a great quality car seat cover with top class quality zips, stitching and elastic around the carrier so it fits my different sized car seats including my doona, kiddicare and mothercare versions - I'm a childminder and mum of a 3 week old. There are Velcro tabs to hold it securely to the carrier handle, small poppers to hold the outer silver layer of material in place and a zip to open the main body of the cover to get your baby in/out of the seat without dismantling the whole cover.
The material has lots of tiny air holes making it dark but very breathable. My babybjorn baby carrier has similar material which works well keeping baby cool.
The double fabric blocks 97.5% of Suns uv and with the silver layer down it still shades 80%.
It's very small and virtually weightless to carry around.

5.0 out of 5 stars An involving read, 2 May 2016
This review is from: Front Lines (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My 16 year old daughter and 14 year old son have both read this book and greatly enjoyed it from it's historical and personal viewpoint. They think it's perhaps a bit too gory for their 11 year old brother and best suited for 13+


Playmobil 6196 Space Shuttle with Lights and Sound
Playmobil 6196 Space Shuttle with Lights and Sound
Price: £28.55

4.0 out of 5 stars A great sized shuttle., 28 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This space shuttle comes with the main body in one piece with cargo bay doors attached strongly although it does look like you could unclip them with force. You do get 3 bags worth of small pieces and stickers to make it into a satisfying building activity.
The product description is wrong - the box only says the shuttle has lights. There are no sound effects.
You need a Philips screwdriver and 3 aaa batteries to make it operational.
The stickers have a very strong backing and aren't easily reposition able so some adult help is definitely needed despite the 5+ advisory. The instructions in colour and number labelling are great and easy to follow but the actual construction was a bit fiddly. When putting the front wheel on I suggest going to instruction number 3 and ignoring no 2 as I could only get it to click in place putting it on upside down. The 2 back wheels also need a lot of brute force to click in place but at least they are secure. It's also annoying the pieces for the wheels are spread over different bags.
There is a nice amount of detail and the shuttle is large. There are a few small pieces like the soft plastic air tubes on the astronauts which may go missing quickly.
A nice touch is the arm on the shuttle folds into the cargo bay.
A good space toy but be prepared for sore fingers clicking it together.


Mitre Delta Slip Pro Shin Pads - Black/Green/Yellow, Medium
Mitre Delta Slip Pro Shin Pads - Black/Green/Yellow, Medium
Price: £16.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Good light but strong shin pads, 28 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Shin guards are a mandatory requirement for school PE kit in our area and I have found out that these place on your shin ones are he quickest and easiest to use. They come with compression tube socks to hold them in place which are a bit more fiddly than straps or elastic but do hold them in place. The shin guards are lightweight and comfortable with a solid form neon green inner. The tube covers are thin stretch material.
I can't see a size explanation on the item page so for info sizing is done on height.
Under 120cm XS
120cm-140cm S
140cm-160cm M
160cm-180cm L
