5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect light-weight lap top carrier, 30 Jan. 2012
I bought this for my wife, who was getting back ache carrying her laptop and work books to and from work. We looked at several alternatives, including more expensive and secure products which were too heavy. This is a great light-weight alternative and quite sturdy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ideal shape for saving space; poor construction quality, 30 Jan. 2012
The shape of this clothes airer is ideal, as you can hang a lot of items indoors without taking up too much floor space. I have seen this design a lot in France and searched around to find an equivalent in the UK. The "collapsable shelf" feature is also great because this makes it easier to hang larger items.
The construction quality is poor, however, and the wheels are too flimsy and fall off easily. I have thrown the wheels away. I not confident that this item will last very long with daily family use; if only Amazon sold a more sturdy alternative.

5.0 out of 5 stars My 6 year old loves this toy!, 30 Jan. 2012
My 6 year old son loves this toy, having become familiar with the Ben 10 cartoons and other merchandise. Lots of play value here and the car has many little tricks and features which have now been explained to us in detail! It seems quite robust. The only word of warning is that there are several detachable pieces which could easily be lost.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful toy but does not attach to trailers, 30 Jan. 2012
A beautiful toy which I bought for my daughter, having myself been given Britains toys as a child. Do note however that there is no trailer bar / attachment at the back of this toy. So you cannot for instance couple it up to a horse box or other Britains farm trailer.

This is not visible from the publicity photo and Amazon confuse the issue by saying that it is frequently sold with trailers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great no frills guide to the island history and key attractions., 4 July 2011
It's important to note that this guide doesn't include any photos, nor any details of accommodation on the island. As such, it is more suited to travelers who have already booked their accommodation and just want to learn more about the island.

Much of the book is dedicated to the rich history of Kos (from Greek mythology through to recorded history) and places to visit. I found this very useful to dip into during our stay. There are also a number of tips for travelers, things to see and do, basic Greek words and phrases, etc. The sections on Kos town were particularly useful since signage on a lot of the ruins is virtually non-existent.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great DVD for boys who love trains, 23 Mar. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Money well spent. My son is three and we live in Kent near a heritage railway. He loves trains in all shapes and sizes and asks for this DVD again and again. There are several short songs sung by children and there are all the familiar Thomas characters and some new ones as well (someone in marketing has clearly done their homework as presumably all these characters are now on sale in the shops!).

Watch out for the (frankly bizarre) rap version of the Thomas song at the end.

4.0 out of 5 stars What is success and how do we choose it?, 18 Dec. 2003
A feel-good fairy tail contrasting the trappings of success in corporate America with domestic bliss in suburbia. This is also a film about finding and losing love, about commitment and about the values we choose to live by. A seemingly chance encounter in a late night supermarket causes fate (Don Cheadle) to show Jack Campbell (Nicholas Cage) a glimpse of a parallel universe: In his "other life" Jack has chosen to sacrifice a career as a New York City banker (complete with Ferrari, exclusive batchelor pad and city high life) for a mariage in New Jersey with the beautiful Kate Reynolds (Tia Leoni), a four bedroom house, a job selling car tyres, two children and a dog. At first horrified by the change, Jack begins to question his priorities. Tracks from the Talking Heads, U2 and Danny Elfman load the film with emotion, but the comparisons drawn are occasionally clichéd and overly simplistic. This film is loosely based on Frank Capra's 1946 classic, "It's a Wonderful Life".
