5.0 out of 5 stars The only and the best, 25 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Currently this is the only Rouge model of plushie on the market. Fortunately, it's also very good!

It's true, you never get as good as it looks in the picture, but Great Eastern does come pretty close! Well made and sturdy. True, the eyes aren't going to take much abuse, but the rest of the product is pretty much unflappable.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible Quality, 25 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Don't get this. Not only was it stitched together poorly, the legs dangle limply and the stuffing was already coming out when I got it. The body is shaped poorly, the cloth is stitched badly, and the whole thing just looks ready to fall apart.

There are lots of Shadow plushes; go find a different model.

4.0 out of 5 stars I'm not german..., 6 Jun 2014

This review is from: Futurama - Season 7 (DVD) (DVD)
For whatever reason, the packaging is entirely in Germanese.

Oh well, as long as there's an English setting, it's as good as ever.

This book is incredibly recent, and has just about all the information up to the recent reboot of the series. Definitely a must!

1.0 out of 5 stars The FRAG?! MY GAME! MY AWESOME GAME!, 9 Jan 2013
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Let's get this clear - Baldur's Gate is an AWESOME game. The single star does not reflect the game. However the only reason I know this is because I bought this 4-disc set to replace a 10+ disc set and save me all that shuffling. And if you install the Sword Coast expansion outside of the USA, you're screwed. Just that one expansion. That's the only one that there seems to be a problem with. Everything else installs and plays fine.

I had my old, regular expansion pack which worked fine with it but you know what? That's not the point. Nowhere in the item description is this little detail brought up. I am VERY VERY ANGRY.

I will NOT be buying from these people, EVER AGAIN.

Nothing particuarly amazing about a three-piece and table. For some reason Epoch thinks it will add to play value for us to have to put the heads of the flowers onto the stalks ourselves, and for it to be terribly easy for those flowers to fall off again.

Still, nearly all the living-room sets have a fireplace, and if I wanted to furnish my Highfields living room without an extra fireplace, this beautifully coloured set was just as good a choice as any.

2.0 out of 5 stars Why do we have to construct flowers?!, 7 Dec 2012
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:3.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Why, Epoch, do you feel it necessery for us to have to attach the flowers to the stalks ourselves? And if you must, then why must you make it so easy for them to fall off again? The tulips aren't so bad, but the daisies and violets are annoyingly delicate. There's an unused third slot in the planters, and for some reason, they are not already fitted.

It feels like the only thing they were thinking of when they made these accessories was "Let's make chop-able logs. And milk churns. Let's have milk churns in this set, because how else are we supposed to cart it out as an accessory for Highfields; it's really just another garden accessory."

And a farm owned by cows sells their milk. Creepy.

5.0 out of 5 stars And you can get dry too!, 2 Dec 2012
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:4.0 out of 5 stars 
The best thing about this toy, I feel, is the elasticated towels. Finally! Getting dry is no longer an awkward chore with felt towels that are really far too small for even a child.

The stickers can be a bit confusing, since they're not all immieditely not obvious on placement. And the shower is a little tough to place, but hey, it'll all look great in any designated bathroom.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as it looks, 1 Dec 2012
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:1.0 out of 5 stars

The trouble with this toy is that most of the items are decorative - plates, photographs, a lucky horseshoe, a rolling pin - but neither the pack not the farmhouse it was designed for give you anywhere to put most of them. You need to buy extra surfaces yourself.

The packaging is rather deceitful too, since there are no Sylvanian houses anywhere that look like that on the inside. The horseshoe is particuarly bad, since it is quite impossible to hang it from any of the walls. You'll need tape or a thumbtack, for you certainly can't hammer a nail into a Sylvanian house's wall.

Unlike most ovens, the stove doesn't open, so you can't cook the pie. Additionally, knowing the shelves don't come with the pack is one thing but you can't actually buy any shelves to stick inside your houses either.

It's nice quality but ill-thought out. I should have gone for one of the regular kitchens.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bench-seats! What an idea!, 30 Nov 2012
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:3.0 out of 5 stars 
There are certainly plenty of accessories - plates, cutlery, some food - but maybe not quite enough surfaces to put them on (or put them away in). So you might risk losing some of it.

Detail is lovely, although it's good that while there are four places at the same table there are two bench-seats. That's certainly a change from fiddling with four seats.
