This review is from: Mrs. Doubtfire [DVD] [1994] (DVD)
Even better than when I watched it as a child!!! Robin Williams is on top form in this film and my kids enjoyed it immensely though I cringed over the odd mild swear word (why was bad language more acceptable in the 80's?). Pure genius and a great family film.

Really well laid out first music book that my daughter has taken a shine to.... and it came with note stickers for the keys which have been very useful too. 10 minutes in and she was playing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star which was lovely to hear :-)

This review is from: White Boots (Paperback)
Loved reading this when I was a child and it's still a charming story of it's time which my skating mad 9 year old is now reading to me and stretching her vocabulary. Glad the illustrations are still the same and enjoying sharing this with my daughter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works for Great Dane to Nap on and Excellent as Gaming Pillow too....., 28 Dec. 2015
Said it would take a week to deliver but arrived within 3 days, even with Xmas post. Bought this for a relative's Great Dane and it's a great colour with a nice pattern on it, a good amount of filling and has a zipped cover which you can remove and pop in the washing machine. Anyway whilst it IS large the Great Dane is bigger though she managed to curl up on it and settled quickly which kept her happy and out the way whilst Xmas lunch was being cooked and served. And I ended up buying a new one for my 6ft 3" partner as it's a really inexpensive, yet very comfy, gaming support pillow, according to him ;-)

Bought the purple ones which arrived quickly and have triangular ends that stop them rolling away. You get what you pay for though as the plastic coating is very thin over the metal with a "ridge" that I find niggles as I use them to workout. Not bad for the money but I have used better (more expensive) weights.

It's HUGE!!!! Arrived quickly and got it inflated locally but it popped within 15 mins (possibly overinflated?). Think we were just unlucky as the replacement inflated and stayed aloft for 2 full weeks!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Value Sturdy Aerobic Step and Handweights Set, 28 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Arrived within 2 days and easy to adjust the height - I'm 5ft 11"and 14 stone so went up to the highest setting and proceeded to pound the daylights out of it - it's very stable! The hand weights are small but crucially have very small ends so that you don't bruise yours hips as you march/step whilst holding them. They felt too light initially but 20 mins in I did feel I was getting an upper body workout. Be careful if you go on to buy heavier weights as most have larger ends that will bruise you whilst stepping. Initially, I could only find step aerobic DVDs in German but Kathy Smith in America has re-released a few (you have to overlook the 90's fashions and scrunchies!!!!) but they give a good workout that is very easy to follow with variations for a more intense workout. If you want more of a challenge add in more arm movements for a more efficient, overall workout (see Jillian Michael's DVDs for ideas as she always combines 2 moves to ensure 2 areas are worked at once).

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Reaction of All the Xmas Presents Opened this Year!, 28 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Good - Amazing value starter keyboard that delighted my 7 year old daughter as it's the whole package which includes:-
a sturdy, padded stool (one height) and does fold flattish for easy storing.
a keyboard stand (adjustable height and only takes 5 mins to pop together) with winged screws that comes with it (yay no tools needed!).
a lightweight keyboard with 66 keys that runs off either UK mains power or large batteries - 4 x Size D, I think. Over 100 different sounds plus 100 different beats, a couple of percussion pads (touch to insert cymbals etc) with record and playback capability and a small LCD screen that shows which key is being played. There's lots to play with and endless variations.....
a plastic music stand that slots in the back of the keyboard and actually does keep the music books (not included) open.
Headphones (essential for the early learners!!!!!) that fit either a child or an adult with big comfy pads that fit over the ears.

The Niggles:-
1) There may be over 100 different "tones" eg piano, acoustic guitar, harpsichord, celestia, oboe etc etc but they all sound a bit tinny through the speakers although much better through the headphones. (I remember we used to have a full octave digital Yamaha piano that was extremely large and heavy to move with weighted keys and only 6 full-bodied sounds (no rhythm) that cost over £600 secondhand so bear that in mind).
2) The power cable is only 1m long so unless it's right on top of the power socket you'll need an extension cable.
3) You will need some note stickers to stick on the keys but some starter keyboard books come with them....

Overall - For £80 this is a fantastic start-up set that her piano techer said would get her through the first couple of years. The main thing is it's £80 to fan the flame of her little dream and she was up and playing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star within 10 mins - if she sticks to it I'll be happy to pay more to get a better quality sounding keyboard later on. The other great thing is my 7 year old can operate it without any help from me and the keyboard just attracts people to sit and have a play - adults and kids alike. Very highly recommended and got the best reaction of all the Xmas presents I saw my daughter open - she was genuinely blown away!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant for Size 14 Feet "Never squeezing into supermarket size 12 ever again!", 28 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Partner with size 14 feet loves them as they're not too thick/hot to wear yet he has room to wiggle his toes and the elastic round the top doesn't cut into his lower legs. Says he won't be squeezing into supermarket size 12 ever again! So far they've washed well too but as they are a little thin I don't expect them to last more than a few months but hey 12 black pairs for £15 will keep him going a while :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars VAX Action 602 Upright - Lightweight yet really powerful suction, 28 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Good - Superb value compact upright hoover that comes with a load of attachments (usually extra on Dysons) and has a grey handle that folds down so it's easy to store in the low understairs cupboard. Also, it's incredibly lightweight so I wasn't expecting much and was pleasantly surprised to find it has really powerful suction - it's doing a much better job than our old Dyson! And since it's lightweight it's a doddle to lift up and down stairs and has a good length hose for using on the stairs.

The Bad -
1) Size - I'm 5ft 11" and find it causes me to bend over more which makes my back sore although my 6ft 3" partner is happy to use it :-). A shorter owner wouldn't notice this niggle.
2) Design - most attachements fit onto the hoover but not the hose extension so we keep losing this. Also, you can only wind the power cord round the bottom half and the cable gets untidy.
3) Lastly, the cylinder seems to fill up quicker than the old Dyson - this is not necessarily down to size of cylinder; I just think the VAX is just doing a much better job!!

Overall it's been a good buy and 2 months in we're very happy with it.
