Melissa & Doug Deluxe Jumbo Cardboard Blocks (40 pc)
Melissa & Doug Deluxe Jumbo Cardboard Blocks (40 pc)
Price: £27.32

5.0 out of 5 stars A basic yet brilliant toy, 11 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Amazing. There's so much pressure to buy all the expensive plastic junk when kids just love old style toys. This is basically strong cardboard boxes in a variety of sizes (the biggest are about a foot long). They are stronger than cardboard and are vividly coloured. The kids just love to build a wall and then smash it down with a car, or build a house or a set of steps to roll balls down. These are so good for the imagination, thinking skills and movement skills.

A basic yet brilliant toy.


Oral-B Trizone 2000 Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush Powered by Braun
Oral-B Trizone 2000 Electric Rechargeable Toothbrush Powered by Braun
Price: £33.49

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok, does the job but shakes my head and no better than the "spinning head" style of brush, 11 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
For several years I've had a multitude of different Oral-B toothbrushes. They were are of the same basic design with the spinning circular head. I've been very pleased with all of them, even the cheaper ones that have less features. They all seem to last several years and the chargers are generally interchangeable.

This brush is similar in design, but the main difference is the head. It does not spin. The central sections bristles waggle from side to side and the end rotates from side-to-side on a differnet axis. Does it clean any better? Too be honest I'm undecided. All the Oral-B toothbrushes are excellent.

My main griupe with this is it makes my head shake, literally. It vibrates much more than the old style spinning head. It is also a little deaer. For this reason I only give 3* as in use I prefer the old style spinning head brush (which are often rediced to a bargain price).


Vax Performance Floor-2-Floor Total Home Eco Upright Vacuum Cleaner
Vax Performance Floor-2-Floor Total Home Eco Upright Vacuum Cleaner

1.0 out of 5 stars Ok if you live in a bungalow or never clean stairs and carpets!, 10 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Easy to assemble and light weight, the Vax is reasonable at sucking up debris. In the manual it says it's 1600w but on the label actually on the machine it says 750w. Interesting.

The main and HUGE criticism of this machine is that it is sold as "total home" but it does not have a long flexible tube so can only do a handful of stairs, unless you actually start to carry the vacumn up the stairs with you. In the images, you can even see where the tube should go, but obviously a different model actually has the long tube!

In conclusion ok if you live in a bungalow or never clean stairs and carpets!


Philips Shaver Series 3000 with CloseCut Blades and Flexing Heads HQ6986/16
Philips Shaver Series 3000 with CloseCut Blades and Flexing Heads HQ6986/16
Price: £40.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice close shave with 1 hour charge, pity about the noise., 28 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Nice close shave with a fast 1 hour charge and a low battery warning. It makes a fairly high pitch noise when in use which is slightly off putting. It is also reasonably hard to clean. You need to half disasemble the head to get to the shavings.The cutters last 2 years which is pretty ressonably. The builkd quality is solid but very plasticy, no soft rubberised plastics here!

Overall it does a nice close shave. It does not have a trimmer, so it is literally just a shaver and reasonable value too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great tasting food, well presented and easy to cook, 25 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a great book to get away from the rice/pasta with every meal issue. The emals are very well presented and are easy enough to cook. Some of the receipes have cous-cous or pastry which probably are carbs, so it's not 100% carb free but that is ok. I love pastry! My only real criticism is that there are not a huge amount of main courses, when compared to the amount of cakes and desserts. Overall though it is a realy good book, well presented and most importantly the food tastes great!

4.0 out of 5 stars good but expensive, 25 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
We've had several of these before from NCT sales and jumble sales so it was nice to try a brand new one. Firstly I seems to suffer from the same problem as many of these projector toys, it just isn't very bright. This is probably due to a bit of health and safety (blinding hazard?) but our ceiling is white. I think in the summer you would definantly need blackout curtaions/blinds for this. You need to get the big fat C type batteries before you can use it. Get rechargables and a battery charger as the costs can add up! The songs are nice. The main benefit of this over similar units is the additon of a remote control so you can put it on without disturbing baby. Bonus! There is also a button for baby to press to switch it on when they realise how to do it.

Overall this is probably the best of kind, but it certainly costs it too.


Polar Loop Activity And Sleep Tracker

3.0 out of 5 stars ok but only for certain people., 25 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a nice piece of kit, feels nice and the functionality is ok, but there are many weaknesses.

Firstly you need to cut the strap to size, so be very careful although it is easy. I found the display can sometimes be hard to read. Having to buy a very expensive seperate heart rate belt is a bit much when this in itself is so expensive. Battery life is ok, Polar says 5 days which is about right for mine.

I already have recently got the Polar CS500+CAD bike HRM and found it almost impossible to get the data into Strava. It is the same with this. The polar website when you upload your data is ok and quite comprehensive, but not being able to export or integrate with Strava is a bit old fashioned. In a way I wish I'd saved up a bit and got a fully featured Garmin device that would cover walking, running and cycling.

Lack of Windows Phone app is odd since you can now program to target all platforms. Sleep monitoring feature is useful but you can get equally good featureset in a 99p app.

Overall this is ok, suitable for people that just want to get a but fitter. For the price and lack of heart belt, lack of integration with Strava and otehr issues merits only 3*. It's worth visiting a store in person to discuss your requirements so you dont waste your money.

How do they do it so cheap? Great quality tape, very strong, fairly sticky and all the colors you could need. Amazing value compared to our local DIY store.

This is cheaper than our local dry-cleaners. I hate throwing things away, but when the kids poo/puke/wee on it then it's so cheap I just buy another. Very good quality as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Legendary for the price, 20 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Legendary for the price. This is currently #1 rated on dashcam review sites. No GPS but the picture quality is good in day and night, it's small and very cheap. There';s no reason not to own a dashcam anymore.
