My Little Pony Equestria Everyday Doll Rainbow Rocks Dash
My Little Pony Equestria Everyday Doll Rainbow Rocks Dash
Price: 12.95

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: 4.92

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

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
Am-Tech LED Pen Light
Offered by Lowest Price
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: 22.77

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The "nanny" toothbrush! :-), 23 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It tells you if brushing too hard, when your brushheads need replacing, how long to brush, when to move on to another section of teeth. Easy to change brushheads.
Wonderful. Also, mouth feels really clean after using, testifying to its efficacy. Claims to remove 100% more plaque along the gum line (I'll be interested in what my dentist says at next visit - maybe won't need the Hygienist).
Can chose "sensitive" mode and "polishing" mode.

Charged up easily - mount stand is simple and uncomplicated. Nice container for spare heads is part of the stand - so no losing them.
Good, comfortable grip.
Needed a 2 pin converter as I don't have a socket in the bathroom.
2 year guarantee. Satisfaction guaranteed or money back - what's not to like? You cannot make a mistake purchasing this product with that promise.


Bright Starts Springin Safari Bounce A Round
Bright Starts Springin Safari Bounce A Round
Price: 73.17

2.0 out of 5 stars Look for other options, 22 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Following pictures to assemble it (and some dissembling in order to reassemble) I made mistakes and had to work things out. Handy having another person to assist as some things too tight to do by oneself. By the time I got it together I was not that happy with it. Takes up a lot of space, a lot of space.
Lots of hard plastic (hygienic as easily cleanable). There are cleaning instructions and parts will need disassembling for a thorough job. Seems like too much work. Quite a crowded surface - the claim will be there are lots for kiddy to do, but I have been happy with playmats and roller chairs, which offer other functionality and variety.
Have tried it out on g-daughter and she is not yet impressed. That may change and I'll edit this feedback if that happens. There is also only a small window of use - between being able to support herself and toddling - so economically that reflects why I consider it overpriced. It does nothing else than be a seat, with a bouncy footrest and toys - there is no life beyond that by taking it apart into smaller units of play. Everything is uniquely designed to be part of this unit and nothing can be free play.


Waiting for Wednesday: A Frieda Klein Novel (Frida Klein 3)
Waiting for Wednesday: A Frieda Klein Novel (Frida Klein 3)
by Nicci French
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 9.27

5.0 out of 5 stars Great writing. Absorbs immensely, 22 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've fallen in love with Frieda Klein - a smart. attractive woman but with uncertainties. She moves through the landscape of London and the landscape of friends, acquaintances, and associates of both. This is a nicely developed plot about a murdered housewife, seemingly a loving wife and mother, a burglary that went wrong. The complexities of people who lean heavily on Frieda and expect her to sort out problems create invisible currents that move her one way and another, while she is trying to find her grounding with a boyfriend and relationships that she self-analyses critically. This is all lovely detail that colours what would otherwise be a typical crime novel - it supercedes that. The crime(s) are there to make the reading enthusiast happy - there are complex plot twists - but the added dimension of the characters brings this book to a much higher level. You would like to be part of her circle and to protect her. A fascinating read. If you enjoyed the UK "Law and Order" tv series, this is so much better and deserves to be made into television.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping drama of the highest quality in all aspects., 20 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Absolutely the highest standards of production, acting and directing. This is a must have for any fan of the Bard. Goes beyond that, though - the plays work well as tv drama, so no need to shun away as only being for classical theatre buffs. Tremendous value at this price!

3.0 out of 5 stars Novelty / gimmick, 20 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Length:: 2:24 Mins

Ordered too quickly; hadn't realised it was Edison Screw and when it came, it was large ES and my two wall lights are small ES.
So unable to try it out. I was looking forward to this, so I think I'll look for a table lamp to fit it in; when that happens I can review properly.
In the meantime - don't copy, my mistake.

UPDATE: bought a table lamp - went for glass cylinder rather than shade. Downloaded the app, followed instructions and nothing happened. Reading the incredibly small font of the instruction book, I saw there was a switch on the lamp (not on/off - it worked as a lamp) to try for co-ordination with my tablet. It looked like a small catch to open a hatch on the side of the lamp body but it actually was a switch to move up and down. That worked. So I can sit a few feet away and control my lamp. And I don't see the point. I actually am much happier with another product I obtained ages ago, which came with a remote control and does so much more and better. That item has a better colour range and although it doesn't have the effects of this (which aren't too great - I'll video and upload) it does have colour changing and intensity settings.

The video is not the best quality - the camera overemphasises the brightness. However, you can see the control mechanism app and some of the effects. I find the "candle" effect annoying as it strobes instead of flicker. Don't get what is happening as "lava lamp". I think Random is best choice if having a party and that is probably the best reason to have this gadget as otherwise,I think this is for the gadget lover, in a large house, who would want to set up lamps around the place and "play", rather than the average Joe like me, in your standard suburban dwelling.
