4.0 out of 5 stars My children love it!, 16 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My 2 year old and 4 year old boys adore this CD player which despite appearances has proved remarkably robust. Only downsize is the number of batteries required (6 x C batteries). There is no mains adaptor option. Also, if they leave it on by accident, the batteries run down really quickly. There's no power down mode to save energy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Neat and effective, 16 Jun. 2013

Great device from OXO Good Grips. Had the original in bigger size and was a pain to clean. This one is so much easier and the size is just perfect for salad for two or three!

Love this little racquet which my two year old uses as a golf club. Grip size is perfect for learning basic ball skills. Durable and looks good too!

4.0 out of 5 stars Have now used for several months - review update, 18 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this as third stair gate for home having bought a Lindam easy fit and Babydan premier gate previously (both excellent products). Thought as it was a pressure fit gate - no need for screws but instructions require you to fix pressure cups with screws in order for it to be safe (even though they supply self adhesive double sided stickers as an alternative - the instruction manual does not refer to them!).

It is definitely not as secure or safe to use as the other two stairgates we have but will have to do due to the lack of market for narrower stairgate products. It is easy to open and close and I suspect our 3 year old will have it open in no time - however our 15month old should not be able to open it as the door itself quite stiff and reasonably weighted and that's the main thing for us.

My biggest concern about the gate when first purchased was that if either of my children (both boys) pulled on it or tried to hang off it, it would yield to the pressure and fall down on top of them. (I suspect this is why the manufacturer attempts to dodge liability by telling you to screw the pressure cups in despite marketing and selling the product as a "pressure mounted" stair gate. Would definitely not mount it at the top of our stairs, only at the bottom level.) However, having used it now for over half a year, I can say that it has proved fantastically robust and I would definitely recommend it!!

My son is always trying to take our mops and brushes to help clean with mummy. These miniature replicas prove just the ticket to keep him entertained. The trolley is a bit flimsy (it falls over if there is no utensils to keep it stable although everything else is fairly solid.

3.0 out of 5 stars Page Turner but disappointing nonetheless, 27 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Page Turner [2006] [DVD] (DVD)
This movie starts out full of promise but loses it's way about half way through. The main protagonists seem to proceed without purpose and the events which occur are too random to be considered the work of a girl seeking ultimate revenge. Flimsy plot and weak female characters lets this film down. It could have been so good...

Dreadful quality product - avoid, avoid, avoid. No educational value because the ball burst within 5 minutes of use.

2.0 out of 5 stars Tommee Tippee Nappy Wrapper Refill, 21 Sept. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Product has now been surpassed by new Tommee Tippee Sangenic Nappy Wrapper which is much better at keeping smells at bay and is made of better quality plastic. No reference to the fact that this product is no longer made was apparent when I made the purchase. Clearly the seller is trying to get rid of old stock - I would rather have paid the extra pound per wrapper to get the new version.
