3.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat irritating, 22 Aug 2014
Sorry have to disagree with previous review perhaps it is a case of personal taste? Found this CD very irritating with a synthetic harmony in the background. Disappointed with it as my Yoga teacher plays some amazing music and this is not amazing just annoying.


Executive Function "Dysfunction" - Strategies for Educators and Parents
Executive Function "Dysfunction" - Strategies for Educators and Parents
by Rebecca A. Moyes
Edition: Paperback
Price: 12.87

3.0 out of 5 stars Easy to read intoduction., 22 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Clear and easy to read with a simple explanation of what executive function difficulties are. Many of the strategies suggested would be better aimed at primary school children and those that are lower functioning rather than those with Asoerger's Syndrome. The strategies rely on the "ideal situation scenario" where staffing, environment and the needs of non disabled children in mainstream settings are what frequently dictate best practice. Like many books of this type it is American and some of the references do apply to the English reader. Slightly disappointing book as a little lightweight for those readers who perhaps have read books by authors such as Tony Atwood. There is a great quote on page 117 "If they can't learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn".

4.0 out of 5 stars Retro Dolls Dressmaking, 13 Aug 2014
This review is from: Dolls' Dressmaking (Hardcover)
Utterly charming and delightfully old fashioned book with colour plates of 60's style doll and teddy clothing for 16" and 17". Full scale traceable patterns and instructions for scaling up and down. Very detailed step by step guidance on a full range of sewing techniques including smocking and embroidery.

excellent pair of robust work trousers. They seem really well made and have washed well. Dont really need to iron them. My existing knee pads fitted into the knees. No minus points apart from the waist is not elasticated in any way so there isn't a lot of give and I needed to order a size larger. Bought 2 pairs and will certainly buy this make again

Work well on phone and tablet screens. Seem more robust than the rubber tipped one's which don't last long at all. Would buy these again.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a great doll, 27 Dec 2013

Ok as an extra Christmas present but not fantastic quality. Dolls available in the Disney Store are much nicer and only 4 more. The moulded plastic bodice decoration means you cannot dress it in other outfits as they do not fit onto the doll which is frustrating. Not very impressed.

This review is from: Angry Birds in Space (Toy)
Angry Birds does not translate well into in a physical game. For younger players it is slow and tedious to play. The plastic pieces wobble and are not easy to balance and it takes some skill to knock them down. It is ok if all children want to do is build up towers and practice knocking them down which after a while does get boring and loses its appeal. Stick to the computer game far more entertaining, this is just an ill thought out concept to cash in on Angry Birds proper and sell merchandise to young children. Very disappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Board Game, 27 Dec 2013
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Ravensburger Labyrinth Game (Toy)
This board game is quite simply brilliant. Great for ages and easy to learn how to play. Players are represented by 4 characters a witch, a wizard, a hag and a princess. Players take it in turn to slide one of cards into the labyrinth to block opponents as well as alter the route round as they race to collect objects such as a sword, a crown, a rat and many many more in order to win the game. Fiendishly cunning to play and highly addictive. As you would expect from Ravensburger the game is made for high quality board and beautifully finished and illustrated. An absolute must for all the family. Retail price is 10 cheaper on Amazon at 15, do not buy it from WH Smith the rob dogs are charging 25!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars GARMIN SAT NAV holder, 8 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Use mine for a garmin sat nav. Holds in place with some sticky velcro patches which seem a bit loose but do hold it in place. I also leave the dc power lead attached and it wraps around the inside of the unit, so it zips up with power lead inside it keeping it all together. Holds well on the dash and sat nav stays in place.
