5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, well thought out film which makes the viewer think twice about who is good or bad, 29 Dec. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Maleficent (Amazon Video)
What a thought provoking and amazing film for both grown-ups & children. I had wanted to see this in the movie theatre, but missed it. So, decided that we would be a digital copy to view at home. I watched it with our 5 year old son. Before watching it, we watched both the trailer for Maleficent & the trailer for the original Disney's Sleeping Beauty. I explained to my son that Maleficent was the character portrayed in Sleeping Beauty as a 'baddie' but that the film Maleficent provided her story so we could learn about her. I was thrilled to see how well thought out the story & plot line for Maleficent was. I don't want to provide any spoilers, but I greatly appreciated how it makes people think about what is 'good' and what is 'evil' or bad. People should not judge others by appearances nor should they forget that there are 2 sides to every story. A fantastic film and appropriate to watch with children (I would not have watched it with anyone younger than 5 though) if you are present and sitting with them to explain. Well done to Angelina Jolie for this film.

Just ordered this via Prime yesterday 7 Dec 2015 to watch immediately since we couldn't get the 'real' Elf movie with Will Ferrell on demand. Our 5 year old son seemed to think it was fine. It follows the same plot line as Elf & it's done in the style of the Christmas stories from the late 60s and 70s - which I do love as I grew up watching Rudolph the Rednosed reindeer, The Year without a Santa Claus - with my all time favorite Mr. Heatmiser, etc But I was underimpressed, the songs weren't that great and the lines were not much better. I haven't seen the musical so maybe this follows the musical and the songs are from that. But I didn't feel particularly festive nor excited by watching it... The movie Elf makes me smile & laugh every single time I watch it. So I've just ordered the DVD from Amazon so it's here when we next want to watch something festive!

Awesome blue potato chips/crisps. Had them first in the U.S. (just from the grocery store/supermarket there) & they are very light in their flavour - not too greasy. The purpley blue colour is a party attraction/topic of conversation. Yum!

This review is from: How Much Is a Million? (Hardcover)
A great book to help younger children who oftentimes ask the exact question posed by the book's title, 'How Much is a Million?' Our son enjoyed being able to picture children climbing on top of one another to be a million kids standing on one another's shoulders & reaching the moon! The book was also useful to explain how much time it actually takes to count to these large numbers - especially when our child asks us to count to a million regularly...

It's a simple book, easy to read & can be read over & over - even as the child begins to grasp massive quantitative concepts more.

Talking Tables Party Ice Fountains, Pack of 5, Blue

3.0 out of 5 stars Great when lit, but 2 burnt out before other 3 were even lit which was disappointing, 19 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Given other people's reviews, I was all excited that these giant sparkler candles would stay sparkling for awhile. 2 of them went out before we lit the other 3 on the cake... Very disappointing for a 5 year old AND his Mum (me!)... My suggestion would be to get 5 different people to light each one. We had 3 different people lighting them simultaneously & that still didn't help get them all sparkling at the same time.

But when they were lit, they were great. So, either order 2 packs (a pricey candle extravaganza!) or use only 1 or 2 per cake.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you have a young dinosaur fan, these are great, glow-in-the-dark dinosaurs for putting on a child's bedroom wall. We positioned them to get south facing sun on them everyday, so they pretty much illuminate our child's wall by the bed every night. Have been glowing brightly for 3 1/2 months now. So, I'd recommend them for sure!

5.0 out of 5 stars isn't made up of loads of synethetic chemicals and is a great product. I tend to use the Almond line ..., 4 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Weleda skincare is the only range I find that does what it says, isn't made up of loads of synethetic chemicals and is a great product. I tend to use the Almond line of Weleda's products, but I got this on a whim to clean my skin quickly some days. I was happily surprised to find that this reminded me of the astringent product Sea Breeze which I used when I was a teenager. I loved Sea Breeze because I always felt like it cleaned out my pores and, particularly, in hot summertime weather it was refreshing. Well this Weleda One Step Cleanser & Toner does the same and it's a natural product - hooray!

2.0 out of 5 stars sturdy leather and looks very smart/nice, 4 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got this as my husband's Sony Xperia phone case. It's a beatiful case, sturdy leather and looks very smart/nice. It was purchased in November 2014 & the magnetic fold over clasp just totally ripped off the other day. He tends to put his phone in his trouser pocket and this cover did not stand up well at all over the past 4 months. I know he's tough on phone covers by the going in & out of his pocket (sometimes alongside house & car keys), but I had hoped this one with the higher pricetag would persevere. It didn't... It is a beautiful case, so perhaps may survive in a shirt or blazer pocket. Disappointing...
