Glow Pet 16-inch Magical Unicorn Soft Toy
Glow Pet 16-inch Magical Unicorn Soft Toy
Offered by CoolBitz Trading Group
Price: £23.33

5.0 out of 5 stars A magical toy, 20 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is such a lovely toy.

It feels so soft and all children, especially those sensitive to feel will love stroking this.

It takes 3AA batteries to work and is for children ages 3 and up.

LED lights light up the unicorn and in the dark this looks quite magical.

There is Velcro at the bottom of the toy and when this is pulled open the unicorn turns into a soft, flat pillow.

A stunning toy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Get your child counting., 15 Oct 2014
This review is from: Fisher-Price Smart Phone (Toy)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This Fisher Price phone is very attractive and easy to use.

It consists of large buttons and a push along button, so easy for children to operate. The toy is quite thick and may be a little too chunky for very young hands to hold.

The phone is turned on by pressing any button and the phone lights up. With this toy you will 'hear songs, tunes and phrases that introduce numbers, counting, greetings and more' to facilitate learning whilst having fun from a young age (3-36mths).

The buttons are numbered 1-10 so helps with the learning of numbers and counting.

This toy phone helps develop communication skills as a female voice will pretend to talk and listen.

A sweet toy that I would recommend but I think it may be a little childish for three year olds. As a Nursery school teacher I believe this would be more beneficial to under 2s.


Fisher-Price Glow Motion Soother
Fisher-Price Glow Motion Soother
Price: £34.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Parents get some sleep!, 15 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My neice is 5 months old and up at night suffering from teething so I thought this might sooth and distract her a little so that her very tired parents might get a tiny bit of sleep.

The Motion soother is very attractive and compatible with most cots (my nieces was from IKEA) but my advice is to check before purchasing just in-case your cot happens to be the one it won't work with, although it has an adjustable strap and cord so I feel it would fit all and this also feels very safe and secure.

There are three settings:
1. Plays music only,
2. Plays music accompanied with falling, glow in the dark beads and
3. Plays music with accompanying beads and lights.

If you are worried about falling off to sleep and the toy carrying on all night and running down the battery the falling beads stop after 10minutes and then the lights switch off after another 20. The whole thing switches off after 30minutes. However you can reach over, or if your baby is capable and can do this themselves if they press the jar to turn it on again.

My niece finds this toy, especially when the beads are glowing and falling, and when the animals are moving, hypnotic. The music has different settings: soft lullabies, calming white noise and jungle sounds, all of which can be turned up or down.

This toy is fantastic. It absolutely smooths my Niece so I would recommend it.


The Labrador Theory
The Labrador Theory
by Cheever Hardwick
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £11.53

3.0 out of 5 stars Sweet yet a little old fashioned., 15 Oct 2014
This review is from: The Labrador Theory (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I will start by saying that this book from the outset is very attractive. It has a hard-cover and has a lovely picture on the front cover. It is also quite a thick book yet the picture and font are large so it only took me 15-20minutes to read and appreciate the accompanying illustrations.
I myself own a Labrador and this initially drew me towards this book, I also had the idea that it might be a lovely Christmas gift for my partner as Scooter the Labrador is the apple of our eye. However I do not feel this book is aimed towards females or modern thinking, younger people, but rather to a 1950s upper class, country living gentleman. I came to this conclusion as the book consists of references towards how man and dog are similar in many ways whilst growing old together. However my partner does not go hunting or sit watching whilst I cook the dinner (OK at times he does), so a little old fashioned in it's humour at times.
A sweet, old fashioned book.

Excellent charger but no more or less so than any standard model. Worth noting is that I bought a cheap charger recently that only charged one of three phones in the house that all have the same port, but this works on all three.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff, 11 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Excellent for the designed function - plug and record straight from your television - and also as a standard external HDD for storing lots of information on. As other reviewers are right to mention, you need to make SURE this is compatible with your television before purchase because it is not universally compatible.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Excellent package for small businesses on Intuit's emerging subscription-per-year plan. As an erstwhile user of various Quickbooks products I can happily vouch for this latest incarnation which retains the easy familiarity of earlier incarnations with the relevant upgrades to make a new version worthwhile. Top notch.
