5.0 out of 5 stars Looks like becoming a firm favourite, 15 Jun 2011

My daughter is 4 1/2 months old and has had these for the last 2 months. I bought them as she couldn't get her hands around rattles with circular grips but was active enought with her hands to need something to wave around.
These are great, she can get a good grip on them and light enough that she can make plenty of noise.
They seem to be hard wearing with the smaller end getting well chewed since she has started teething. Hasn't left any marks though and is easy to wipe clean.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for babies, 10 Nov 2010

Lovely soft material and very supportive for baby, bit softer than some thinner play mats. Attachments for other hanging toys are good and will keep baby interested.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice warm head, 10 Nov 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is one of the best balaclavas I've had for biking. It fits under the helmet without any problems and keeps my head and deflects wind from the front of my neck. Good value for money.
Downsides are that the stitching and seams are quite large on the inside so if your helmet is quite snug you may end up with lines or marks on your face for a bit. The neck coves is also a bit short at the back for me but my neck isn't short so it might be fine for most people.

4.0 out of 5 stars Different, but still good, 10 Nov 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you are expecting something the same as Meteora or Minutes to Midnight then you will be in for a suprise. This is definately a bit of an experimental album for Linkin Park, but it is well worth a listen.
It is best listened to as an entire album, rather than a collection of individual tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good and fun, 11 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought for a youth club and despite getting a fair amount of abuse still looks as good as new a few months down the line. Obviously well made and good fun. The cable could do with being longer, but an extension lead solves that problem. Good for a laugh and with an appeal to a wide age group.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best I've tried yet, 11 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've tried several headphones over the last few years, some are comfortable and some are good for the gym. This is the first pair that I have had the combine the two. The are reasonable sound quality and volume, are comfortable to wear for several hours at a time, but are also sturdy enough not to fall off on a treadmill.
The cable is long enough for most requirements and the colour makes them fairly difficult to misplace.
Would definately recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic, 11 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I used to watch this religiously when I was younger and was a little worried that the dvd wouldn't live up to my memories. Fortunately all that was unfounded and I ended up watching the dvd in one go. Either I haven't grown up much or it hasn't lost it's appeal, whichever way it is, this is a good watch for any age.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sequal worth a read, 11 May 2010

If you have read the first book, then this one is a must. It ties up most of the lose ends, but I still felt a little disappointed with the ending. Look forward to reading more from the author in the future.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly suprised, 11 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Green Blade Rising (MP3 Download)
Having been into the Levellers music for well over a decade I have a definate soft spot for the older music from Levelling the Land etc, but while this is a slightly different sound it is still a worthwhile addition to any collection.
Took me a few listens to appreciate it, but the best music always grows on you. Was worth the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth a look, 9 April 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a well written book. I bought it on a bit of a punt as running out of books by authors I have read previously and wan't disappointed. It is an easy book to get into and the story line doesn't drag. Was pleased to find such an original theme to the book in a genre that seems to be swamped with similar characters and plots.
All in all it was an enjoyable read and worth a look at.
