4.0 out of 5 stars Stylish Spoons, 13 Jun 2011
Spoons are exactly as described and look very nice. They arrived quickly and were well-packed.
Good value for money - the glaze is not perfect around the small hole in the handle of each spoon, but this isn't a fault, just down to the manufacturing method and not noticeable enough to look bad in use.
I was very happy overall.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting introduction to Gujarati food, 27 April 2009
On the plus side, the food I've made following Hansa's recipes is delicious and very easy - the kind of food you can cook every day without having to slave for hours over a hot stove. The sections on Hansa's background, Gujarati eating and tips on using up leftovers were particularly good.
I would have liked to see more space devoted to 'main course' type dishes - there are 8 'main course' vegetable dishes and 6 dals compared to 7 starters/snacks, 5 salads and 6 lassis and teas (most useful if this is your first Indian cookbook) plus rice dishes, desserts, pickles/chutneys and 'specialities'.
The book as a whole could do with some rigorous editing - there are quite a lot of irritating inconsistencies or errors, such as interchangeable Gujarati, Hindi and English terms, inconsistent spelling, incomplete glossary, etc. Recipes are for varying numbers of servings (2 - 8)and one or two include ingredients that are not mentioned in the actual recipe steps.
Overall, yummy food and worth buying as an addition to your veggie recipe book collection unless you're OCD like me, in which case you'll be itching to get out the red pen every time you use it!

2.0 out of 5 stars Disastrous design - but toddlers love it!, 30 Oct 2008
My toddler finds this toy hugely entertaining in the bath - but I can't for the life of me understand why!

Good Points - It's Teletubbies (need I say more?) and the figures are practically indestructible. The hat makes a lovely pouring jug and there's endless fun to be had dropping the figures into the centre of the island and watching them come out again - at least for a two-year old.

Bad Points - Floats (barely) with the flowers semi-submerged so the 'opening' effect is completely lost. It takes up a lot of space in and out of the bath. Teletubbies don't slide down the slide and the windmill comes out of its bracket very easily.

Verdict - Entertains most children but a lot to pay for four figures and a plastic hat, which are the bits that get most use. There are better things to spend your money on.
