Not so lifelike to make you think you've a very still grey squirrel in your house, but the dogs are taken in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Make sure you get the right size..., 5 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
and then you're going to have possibly the most comfortable, go anywhere boots. I'm usually 11, but they were tight across my arches, so returned (for free!), and then tried the 12, which are perfect. They need a bit of wearing in - the elastic is tight to start, and the back edge of one boot rubbed at first. A night pinched in a clothes-peg did the trick to break the leather a bit. Wearing really nicely now - these are not smart-smart boots, but keep them cleaned and nikwaxed and they'd do for a lot of occasions. Going to be a long time before they're worn out, but would go for the 550s with the leather lining next time...

...and my 6 yo has been into it all weekend. Loves it, so I love it. Monochrome printing no barrier to my child, but is plain compared to some other books.

4.0 out of 5 stars Persist in wearing them in..., 28 April 2013

This review is from: Blundstone Style 500 Boots (Shoes)
Now so very comfortable, and just what I wanted. Initially, the tail of the left boot rubbed. Wore a plaster for a week, and the boot is now worn in. So very comfortable now, exactly what I wanted. Great service, and good value with free return - if you've high arches, consider a size up from your normal.

5.0 out of 5 stars A compelling history, 2 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Perhaps oddly titled (don't be put off!), this is a compelling history of modern Ireland at the level of the state (and superstate), and the family. It is also an encouraging tale of individuation - a sensible couple waking to a real life of generations, written about superbly. A thoughtful and enjoyable read, recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheap, but effective, 2 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant for little spice roasting pans, coffee makers, and so on, that would otherwise not sit on your gas hob's ironwork. A little bit bendy, but that's actually a good thing as it helps it sit more firmly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much fun!, 13 April 2012
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Robotic T-Rex (Toy)
For building fun, it beats Airfix of yore. And the end result is remarkably good fun when finished. Probably best for 10+ to build alone, but this Dad has had a very happy time constructing for his dinosaur-obsessed daughter. Not really educational about dinosaurs, but good construction/engineering aspect for the slightly older child. For the younger, a robot to clap at! This was a gift from a Godmother, (very much appreciated Bron!), but the other three are in my WishList in time for birthday and Christmas presents (for me or my children!)

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but magnet switch not 100% reliable, 26 Oct 2011
Much better than the official cover, can pick the iPad up by this cover without risk of it falling off the too weak magnetic attachment. But talking of magnets, be sure that the magnet that switches off the screen does so with this cover, or else you might find it has not and your battery goes flat, unless you set the time to sleep... Glad I purchased this overall, and hope the makers will address the magnet switch issue...

Yup. Fine. Black. Good. What I wanted. Am only adding this bit to hit the 20 word target that's required.
