5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for penguin lovers, 17 April 2012

This is a great book for penguin lovers. The book combines super pictures with interesting penguin facts. It is perfect for a six year old who is not a fluent reader.

5.0 out of 5 stars I never knew there was so much to learn about Cat's Cradle, 17 April 2012

This review is from: Cats Cradle (Toy)
This seems expensive for a booklet and a piece of string. However, it kept my daughter (aged 8) busy on a long car journey and now she can teach her friends to do the Cup and Saucer, Eiffel Tower etc. I have bought more as gifts for girls age 8-10 but the instructions are too complicated for young children. Now a piece of string often goes in the school bag and on long trips. Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lovely cups but expensive, 17 April 2012

Two lovely flower fairy designs, both admired by six year old girls, but expensive for disposables. Reasonably sturdy, did not leak or split.

5.0 out of 5 stars Function, design and price, 17 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great kettle, boils quickly, retains heat well. The cord fits in the base neatly. The left/right handed access improves safety as you can quickly turn the steam away from you or a child who gets too close. I've just replaced mine after more than six years of use. Good quality product for the money.

3.0 out of 5 stars Her writing isn't as mesmerising as her choreography, 16 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A charming story of Gillian Lynne's early years as a dancer but unfortunately her writing isn't as mesmerising as her choreography and the editor should have been more ruthless. As the title suggests, the book covers a very limited period in time and there are a lot of Lynne's family memories, which although clearly very important to her, aren't as interesting as the stories about the dance world. There is nothing about Lynne's later career - is another volume planned for Cats? If this book could be condensed to three chapters of a longer biography it would be perfect.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just the job, 27 Dec. 2011

These polythene garment covers were just the job to cover my clothes from the dust created by the builders. The polythene is better quality than that usually deployed by the dry cleaners. The bags didn't rip while being hauled around away from the temporary dust factory.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fab, 27 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The watch was bought as a present for a nine year old girl. It looks great and she loves it. It's more 'grown up' than the time teacher type watches, but looks appropriate for a chic little girl. The strap is big enough for an adult. It's a pale, translucent purple colour, with a good chunky strap. Waterproof, but the dial isn't visible in the dark.

This review is from: Invisible Writer Ink Pen (Toy)
This pen has proved to be a fantastic stocking filler...my children's favourite present from Santa. Write a secret message on the paper, then read with the mini uv torch. I don't know how long it will last but for a couple of pounds, it has proved to be a lot of fun and I will buy more for presents in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product and price, 27 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My Magimix has recently given up the ghost after a long and reliable service, but I couldn't afford to replace it. This is proving to be a great cheap alternative. The Big Foot attachment is fantastic for whizzing soups and sauces in the saucepan and a lot less mess than the Magimix. It's easy to use and keep clean. The motor seems efficient and able to cope so far. Great for home cooks and baby puree makers.

Top Trumps Baby Animals is ok and cheap but I had hoped my children (age 5 and 9) would play this for long stretches on a long car journey. They didn't.
