1.0 out of 5 stars 7.99???, 25 Nov 2013
= Durability:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:1.0 out of 5 stars 
As AliMac has said, you can get these for 1 from other places (Tesco for instance) without the keyring. At 7.99 this makes the keyring, if you want it, 6.99!! Err, no thanks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Smaller than expected, 14 Aug 2013
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:2.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like this model of Concorde, it's well made and nicely painted but the product information here on Amazon states that the 'wingspans are approximately 100 - 110mm'. In fact the wingspan from wingtip to wingtip of this Concorde model is less than 60mm - just over half the size of what it says in the product info. This is a very small model. Nothing wrong with that if we're told before buying but a more accurate description would be better.

Perhaps the description should be changed to better reflect what the buyer will actually receive. Other than that, a nice model and recommended.

.....these can be found at almost half the price in many toy shops and supermarkets. As I say, might be worth looking elsewhere.

1.0 out of 5 stars Now at a bargain price of 99, 25 Jan 2013

Yes, only 99! Buy it now. Or, of course, you could pop down to Tesco etc and get it for 8.50. It's a tough decision.


TP Kingfisher Slide

3.0 out of 5 stars Broke while in use after a few years, 28 Aug 2012
= Durability:2.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:3.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: TP Kingfisher Slide (Toy)
Bought one of these TP slides about 3 years ago, not from this seller but the same slide. It broke this year - the metal legs which support the slide and the steps rusted completely through at the height of the top step and snapped meaning the whole slide collapsed. This happened while the slide was in use, luckily the child using it wasn't injured. I had assumed that the metal parts would have been galvanised so they wouldn't rust as this is a child's toy. Obviously not. A bit disappointed by this as I felt it should have lasted longer as it is made for outside use. With hindsight I'd buy an all plastic one which obviously wont rust.

Also, the slide should be sold with the extension included as it is far too short without it.

At the time of writing (August 2012) this slide, INCLUDING the extension, is 49.99 on the TP website, though this might change obviously. Worth checking.

If you do buy this slide, keep an eye on it for rust as it could result in nasty injury if it breaks while a child is using it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed this, 8 July 2012

Enjoyed putting this T. Rex together with my son and then paining it.

It's quite large and not really a 'toy' but something, once completed that gets put on a shelf. You do get quite a bit of satisfaction from making this, especially if it's a team effort!

Our son is 5 and we really enjoyed making this

4.0 out of 5 stars Can't fault this, 8 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to replace a previous Triton shower. Replacement was easy, all the hoses, electric cables and screws matched up with the previous model.

It's slightly noisier than our previous shower, but I'd put that down to the greater force of water coming through.

All in all, very pleased with the shower and the price.

1.0 out of 5 stars Why did I bother?, 8 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fifty Shades Freed (Paperback)
I bought books two and three on the strength of the first book.

Should have stuck with the first and saved my money!

After having made it through book two, only just, I was sort of looking forward to this book. It had to be better, a bit different, didn't it? Err, no! Once again, it's exactly the same thing. Same phrases, same sex scenes, same plot repeated over and over and over.......ad infinitum.

Really, this 'trilogy' should have been cut down to one book. There's simply just not enough material for three books. It soon becomes boring!

I really can't find any redeeming features about this book. The sex should be interesting but it was done to death in books one and two. The plot, such as it is, is laughable. Actually, I'm not sure laughable is the right word. The only people laughing are the author and the publisher who are laughing all the way to the bank!

If book one was ok, book two mediocre, then book three is simply dire and somewhat embarrassing.

1.0 out of 5 stars 50 Shades of Boring, 8 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fifty Shades Darker (Paperback)
I read the first book, and it was ok in it's limited way. Quite readable.

Then I started on this second book and it soon becomes clear than 90% of this book is a rehash of the first book. All the same phrases, all the same sex scenes. It just becomes boring.

Now, I like sex as much as the next red blooded person but you do find yourself skipping over the sex scenes in this second book, mainly because they are exactly the same as the first book.

Someone else wrote in a review that the author should buy herself a thesaurus, and I would agree. The same words and phrases are used time and time again. Perhaps it's the fault of the editor not to have picked up on this, but it does become annoying and, yes, BORING!

2.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat disappointed, 29 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these silicone cupcake cases as I assumed it meant that the cakes wouldn't stick to them. Not so. The cakes do stick, so, on that level they are no better than paper cases. They will, however save money over paper cases over time but that's not really why I bought them. So, somewhat disappointed and only 2 stars.
