The Phantom of the Opera at the Royal Albert Hall [DVD]
The Phantom of the Opera at the Royal Albert Hall [DVD]
Dvd ~ Ramin Karimloo
Offered by The Happy Zombie
Price: 5.94

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent performance and singing, 1 Sep 2014
Great fan of POTP. Had thought this was a concert version (similar to the Les Mis anniversaries) but it is virtually the whole stage performance filmed, which is very well done, but the film version is so much glossier I would not have purchased this had I realised.
Bonus material at the end where previous Phantoms and Sarah Brightman perform. Really quite good, but if you have the film on DVD, you don't need this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Think about a collection and not a single figure, to maximise the fun., 1 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Great to have a partner for the doll already owned. The proud owner will look forward to a collection and play Girl Band with them; this one actually has a head mike. This is for the child that has moved on from dollies and into dolls - these little figurines represent teenagers rather than babies. Having more than one means it is possible to share when friends come round to play. It is nice to see the amount of imagination the kids have when playing with these.

There are accessories but the appeal is in the hair, long enough to style. Parts, e.g skirts and shoes, are interchangeable with her "sisters"
Looking great on the shelf when not in play. Swivel arms and legs but otherwise inflexible.


Vax Dual Power Carpet Cleaner, 2.7 L, Graphite and Orange
Vax Dual Power Carpet Cleaner, 2.7 L, Graphite and Orange
Price: 119.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Able to favourably compare to professional clean, 1 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
We had been of the opinion we would need to replace our lounge carpet prior to putting the house on the market, but we may have just been saved that expense. It is barely a month since we had our carpet professionally cleaned, using a process called ThermaDry, which uses little water. We were not impressed with the results, which we put down to the state of the carpet. In the hard wear areas - feet in front of seat particularly - the carpet had compressed and been ground in. First use of the Vax and there are visible results, so very pleased indeed.
ASSEMBLY FROM BOX: click, click, screw, screw, screw = done.

A litre of water/cleaner mix covered around 7 sq yards, so frequent refills required to do a whole carpet. I put in a litre and got about 25% back in the dirty water tank. Went out for a couple of hours and the carpet felt very mildly damp still on return but nothing bad. The technique is to spray on the forward pass and not on the return. Next time I will do more passes without spraying as that brings up the liquid from the carpet - so expecting an improvement on the wetness. As carpet cleaning (as opposed to vacuuming) is infrequent, I intend to do one room a month rather than many in one go. That will reduce my personal energy needs as well as the amount of moisture in the house. Will also only do on days when I can have good ventilation.

Extremely easy to use. A bit noisy. After use the tanks needs a clean and then leave out to dry.

4.0 out of 5 stars What little girls dream of, 31 Aug 2014
This review is from: Barbie Glam Camper (Toy)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The variety of content in this CamperVan means lots of play. Her little face will light up when getting this as a present. Adult needs to supervise early use until the child can manage the dissembly and rearrangements to use the various part but can then be safely left to play. The toy is not fragile, although it is possible to break parts if misused.
Of course, a Barbie doll or two is needed - none come with the Van, so don't be misled by the pictures.
Content is like having a mobile doll house - so a ready attraction - absolutely plenty of items.
It is big, but that is the scale of Barbie :-)
I would have given 5 stars except for the price - I do believe that consumers pay a third more on average, if the item is branded. Had this not been "Barbie" brand, I think it would be considerably cheaper. But I don't know of any alternative choice. And rather, think in terms of cost/play hours+pleasure, and it doesn't seem so bad.

4.0 out of 5 stars The gift that keeps on giving., 31 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
So useful that they arrive fully charged - can use immediately. As most appliances rarely take over 4 batteries, you can have one set in reserve while using the other. Of course, you do need a charging unit (unless your device allows charging in situ).
I tend to use a lot of A4 in radio and torches, so having these to hand and being able to recharge, saving a last minute dash to the shops, makes them invaluable. As standard batteries do lose power while sitting on the shelf, having control by recharging is invaluable - I have bought non-rechargeable packs on offer and when it came to use the last few, they were disappointingly under par through "leakage" (the slow drain during lifetime).


My Little Pony Equestria Everyday Doll Rainbow Rocks Dash

4.0 out of 5 stars Appealing to little girls who want dollies with attitude, 26 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Very attractive to little girls; has the presentation of a girlband member with style and colours.
Not a flexible doll but part of a series that the young uns want to collect. Her play appeal is her hair, which can be styled and accessorised. I think the intention is to look good on the bedroom shelf and there's nothing wrong with that - think how much we adults spend on ornaments to decorate our room.
She'll love it and it doesn't break the bank at this price.


The Cold Cold Ground: Sean Duffy 1 (Detective Sean Duffy 1)
The Cold Cold Ground: Sean Duffy 1 (Detective Sean Duffy 1)
by Adrian McKinty
Edition: Paperback
Price: 5.59

5.0 out of 5 stars Great writing - atmospheric with developed and interesting characters, 26 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The first of a trilogy around Sean Duffy, Catholic Policemen, renegade. Each of the books is a self-contained story but it is good to read in order, though not essential. If you like Lee Childs, you will probably like4 McKinty. There is drama, humour and plot. A great read


Bright Starts Having a Ball Roaring Fun Lion

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice ride/pushalong for the kiddy., 26 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Length:: 0:48 Mins

While in the box, I demo pressed the nose and the movement and sounds took me straight to an amusement arcade - loud, like the "play me" machines. Now assembled (quite easy and under 5 minutes) the sound is not so strong (maybe batteries are losing power). There is a choice of volume - full - half - off.
There are a variety of tunes (you don't get to pick) so the blessing for adults is not to hear over and over the same piece (and batteries can be removed for guaranteed peace).
The balls simply go in the mouth and come out below.
The real attraction is, this is a nice ride or push along, and our gdd is having most fun with this. The seat is apparently comfortable and there are no hard edges, all corners being nicely curved. Nor is it heavy.
Wipe clean.

Am-Tech LED Pen Light
Offered by OgbDirect
Price: 2.80

4.0 out of 5 stars Good looking and useful., 23 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great looking - belongs on an engineer's bench for note taking then finding things that drop on the floor. Actually giving it as stocking filler to a young boy, who I think will love it. Can't go wrong at this price.
Quite chunky as a pen, so not something for writing one's memoirs but a handy note taker. Torch is not immensely strong, just a good glow+ really. Could stock up at this price and have them around, e.g. car glove box, garage, kitchen drawer.


Oral-B Braun CrossAction Replacement Rechargeable Toothbrush Heads - (Pack of 8 Refills)
Oral-B Braun CrossAction Replacement Rechargeable Toothbrush Heads - (Pack of 8 Refills)
Price: 25.98

5.0 out of 5 stars Replacement heads for an excellent product, 23 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Heads are quite durable, so 8 heads will last a long time. These are part of a range of heads for different brushing styles, giving the user a number of options. Look out for the rest - Precision Clean, Sensitive Clean, Floss Action etc.
Professional standard care.
