Paul Lamond The Gruffalo's Child Big Bad Mouse Board Game
Paul Lamond The Gruffalo's Child Big Bad Mouse Board Game
Offered by Modo Creations Ltd
Price: 12.99

2.0 out of 5 stars so boring! wheres the fun?, 12 Dec 2012
= Durability:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:4.0 out of 5 stars 
my 4 year old son loves the Gruffalo but this game is about as boring as it gets. Half the cards you pick have a one on them, so you inch along at one space each time (snore.... a dice would have been better), and the only excitement is when you get a three. when you pick the "big bad mouse" card......oh no! you miss a turn!! really? thats it? I modified it so that the big bad mouse means you can jump to the next large circle (a big jump) so at least that provides excitement and moves the game along. honestly though, I would stick to snakes and ladders---a much better game.

2.0 out of 5 stars sorely disappointed in you LP, 11 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I usually love LP as THE go to guide book, giving me an honest insight into a country and highlighting the "real" culture of the place away from the tourist trash. Sadly the problem with this book is that it covers too many Islands and so can't go into enough detail. If you buy this book, chances are you are going to just one of the Islands. So you spend 13 pounds on just 12 pages. Half the cities arent even mentioned, and when they are you get maybe 2 or 3 restaurant recommendations. and why is accomodation in a separate bit at the back? theres no continuity, not enough pictures (what happened to the old books with photo sections?). very disappointed.

Love Duplo is general, but beware that the main yellow frame is VERY hard to attach to the grey truck bed and my 3 year old gets very upset that it keeps falling off. Also the green gate is very fiddly, and not something a 3 year old can do easily. nice idea but LEGO falls short on this one


Prince Lionheart Weepod Toilet Trainer (Green)
Prince Lionheart Weepod Toilet Trainer (Green)

5.0 out of 5 stars pure genius, 25 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this seat is fantastic. forget all the hard plastic cheap versions that move around on your toilet. this one:

--has a cushioned seat
---is high quality and not at all flimsy
---has removable seat pads to clean
---looks nice (as much as a toilet seat can)
---MOST importantly it has an ingenious screw at the back to expand to fit the toilet hole, so its firmly on and your toddler can't TAKE IT OFF ;)
----very easy to use out of the box. nothing fiddly.
---good splash guard for the boys

love it. worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars superb toy for a 3yr old boy, 22 Jan 2012

This review is from: Le Toy Van Excalibur Castle (Toy)
brilliant castle. takes a while to construct initially ( a bit of screwing together) so if its pressie recommend you construct it the night before!

really good quality wooden toy and easy for a 3yr old to play with. it doesnt come with the dragon and trebuchet pictured though. ideal actually are the playmobil knights to go in it. we ordered the van knights set and they were cute but tiny, and dont stand up---so they were not really appropriate for this castle which was a bit odd.

all in all a great buy well worth it


Philips AVENT SCF604/11 Magic Sportster Cup (340 ml)
Philips AVENT SCF604/11 Magic Sportster Cup (340 ml)

5.0 out of 5 stars great cup but description inaccurate, 16 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The description states that it has a "soft, flexible spout" but it does not. Its a rigid plastic one. also the colours that come are just random. both of ours were yellow bottles (no Avent printed on them) with one blue and one green top.

That said, because it takes some sucking to get liquid out like a baby bottle and the valve is really good so no leaks, it is the ideal transition bottle for drinking lying down. the flip top lids can be hard for child to flip by themselves though.

very good cup.

we bought this for use with our brio train track. Its very sturdy, well made and nice looking. Our 2 yr old loves the height it gives his train set and its also great for all his trucks and cars.

Lovely comfy wedge boots. I bought the purple which is a nice dark plum sort of colour. 39 fit me perfectly (I am usually a 6 or 8.5 in US) ---my first fly london purchase, I am impressed with the cool designs and the great quality. They are fantastic with leggings, and are a mid calf height

5.0 out of 5 stars agree with janice great book, 19 Jun 2008
I found this browsing my local bookstore---didnt want to invest time and money in yoga classes but wanted a reference to help me beat stress and depression and headaches. Its such a simple but effective book thats easy to put on the floor and peak at while you try the poses. the best part is that theres a lot of meditation advice, breathing advice, poses to get rid of energy blocks......its just down to earth, simple to decipher and gives you enough background without being overly hippie about it. Just 10-15 mins every morning and it stills my mind and relaxes me ready for the day ahead. Groovy.
