Bright Starts Hide n Spin Monkey
Bright Starts Hide n Spin Monkey
Price: 39.99

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great and fun toy for kids/toddlers, 24 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a great and fun toy for kids/toddlers. To tell you the truth, i found it better than those usual ball popping activity playsets. Not only creating endless enjoyable play with the balls but also teaching them the shapes and colours, thanks to the monkey's hat. Place the balls inside the monkey's hat and they pop out of the bottom and if you are lucky will roll into the convenient side pockets, which i must admit that sometimes they don't. Instead of that, they end up all over the floor but that only happens 40% of the time. Add the sound effects that do get irritating after an hour for any parent and you have a joyful toy for the kids to play until the batteries wear out. There are two ways they can play this. Use it as a simple ball popper or play hide and seek with the monkey. Just input the balls, press his nose and monkey will retreat into itself, as it squeals the balls fall out and then he's ready again. The monkeys seems to be well built and should last a long while.


Disney Planes Fire and Rescue Blastin Dusty Toy
Disney Planes Fire and Rescue Blastin Dusty Toy
Price: 49.99

4.0 out of 5 stars storm dumpers, 22 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I received this today just in time before i take my son to see the movie next week (which he will probably take Dusty we him) This gave him hours of joy pretending to be Dusty and putting out fires.

The toy is made out of fairly robust plastic, the "water" balls are also quite robust and the fire stands also seem well.......robust, however though if trod on, the water balls do crush easily and therefore don't fit back into the plane's launcher so be careful you don't do that. I did that from just cleaning his room. Still.....three still working. The rubber wings are good as my son hit me with it several times while it was "flying", as kids do with their parents.

My son loved playing with this, the sound effects are effective as he dumps the water on the fire but i think that the price-tag for this thing is a bit too high, nearly 50 for a toy. Ouch! Which for a working parent is a little steep. However for what it is, it is a good toy, and my son won't stop playing with it and that's obviously why i got it.


Philips YS527/17 Click and Style 2-in-1 Shave and Stubble
Philips YS527/17 Click and Style 2-in-1 Shave and Stubble
Price: 66.35

5.0 out of 5 stars two heads can be better than three, 22 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Now i found this much better so some reason than the three head razors out there at the moment. I have at least three of these shave/stubble razors and i have to say this is one of the best. I have used this to do a lot of shaves and the fact that it is wet/dry is a godsend. The blades so far have not rusted as i have cleaned the blades under a tap and it still cuts very well. It comes with a charger and for most part charges fairly quickly. It didn't cause any irritation and didn't leave the odd stray hair like most of these shavers have done in the past. It cuts easily and stores easily too. It fits in a travel bag and is easily used while on a coach/plane etc.
Another quality product from Philips


Ring Automotive RCT3 Glovebox Kit
Ring Automotive RCT3 Glovebox Kit
Price: 5.19

5.0 out of 5 stars fits like a glove in your glove box, 22 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Well this is a necessity, you have to have this in your cars' glove box. some of these items WILL save your life. For instance, you accidentally end up be involved in a crash/pile up on a bridge and you get knocked o'er the side in your car into the water/river/lake, hidden within this kit is a glass breaker hammer/seat belt cutter which will cut your seat belt free and break the window so you can pull yourself to safety. Another instance is it's the middle of the Christmas season, and you're driving home. Your hands are freezing and you are finding it hard to grip the wheel. Inside this kit is a gel cushion hand warmer which in seconds will heat and thaw your frostbite fingers o you can drive in the snow/ice with safety. among other items is a poncho, which to be honest doesn't look that strong, i used this at Alton towers and it ripped while i was on Rita.

Everything comes in the handy little pouch that fits nicely and easily in your glove box and it gives you piece of mind that it is there because you never know when you might need it.

5.0 out of 5 stars I f you are like me, an new driver then you need this ..., 6 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I f you are like me, an new driver then you need this by accordance of the highway code. This is the ESSENTIAL piece of kit that you need. Say for instance there is an accident and you are first at the scene, if you remember the highway code then you will instantly know that there are tolls in this kit that you would be able to use to protect not only the victims of the accident but also warn other road users who are not clued with the danger. There are other apparatus in this that are extremely useful and i have used them. I had a couple of drinks one night and before getting in my car, i took a breathalyser test before getting in the car and i had a low count but chose not to drive anyway, I had been drinking and didn't want to chance driving even though i was within my recommended limit of units that a man can have before driving. it has a universal blub for a headlight and that will be a lifesaver if your light blows. Apparently, this kit SHOULD ALWAYS be carried in your car when holidaying in Europe as police can pull up over and book you if you don't have the proper kit. Scary thought eh? Other pieces of kit included are a First Aid kit, foil blanket great for anyone at an accident suffering from shock and cold conditions.

A piece of kit I would not be without. Purchase one before you go away abroad, it is a lifesaver.


Belkin Slim Fit Arm Band for Samsung Galaxy S5 - Black
Belkin Slim Fit Arm Band for Samsung Galaxy S5 - Black
Price: 19.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Band on the run, 25 Jun 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I love this as i go to the gym regularly and i have my iPod in my pocket which while doing pushups has a habit of falling out and dropping on the floor. With this I don't have that problem. I was able to wear this with my IPOD in it and run and pushup without worrying about it falling on the floor. The strap is easy to put on, all you do is slip it around your wrist and pull it up until it reaches the desired height on your arm that you want it. The protective screen while protecting the screen gives you easy access to your Samsung or Ipod to choose the music you want by touching the screen. It worked very well and wasn't blocked. The strap holds the band tight on your arm allowing you to easily perform your workout with no problems. Although if you have arms like the rock then you may find this too small to fit around your arms. It's fairly tight on myself so didn't need to tighten it much. I have used this quite a lot and still plan to use it during my workouts. great piece of kit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Out of the Hollywood and into the furnace, 17 Jun 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Out of the furnace is a powerhouse of a story. Compelling viewing from beginning to end and contains some fantastic performances. Bale proves once again that he is a exceptional actor and as well as Woody Harrelson and Forest Whitaker. The story is pretty straight forward as Bale plays Russell Baze who is a dead beat who works hard trying to prove for his family (his girlfriend and his sick father) But soon a zero becomes a hero when his brother gets involved with the wrong people and goes missing. Baze is upset and it seems like there's no much the law can do so Baze decides that the only way to get any justice no matter what it cost. Soon Baze is fighting for his life and his brother's, but will he make it in time? Woody Harrelson is particularly unpleasant as DeGroot, a low level gangster that Baze's brother become involved with and the confrontation between DeGroot and Baze has to be seen. Out of the Furnace is worthy enough to be up there with the other great vigilante thrillers like Death Wish.

Mad Catz F.R.E.Q.3 Headset - Black (PC DVD)
Price: 55.68

3.0 out of 5 stars These headphones will make your ears bleed (for all the wrong reasons), 27 May 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Now you'd think that these Mad Catz headphones would be good and to some extent they are but the one thing they should be used for, they fail on. Now a lot of people have already stated the flaws with these and so i don't need to really go in depth about it. The headphones themselves are of OK quality, The OK being the fact that they are made from lightweight plastic especially on the speaker joints and look like they could in fact snap with any accidental force. My other headphone which were skullcandys snapped in the hinge part and all i did was lay them on their side, obscure from anything they would damage them and yet the joint snapped. These headphones look like they'd do the same. Wearing them is comfortable and to most part they cancel out any noise that happens outside of them (be careful when crossing a road though as they cancel out the sound of the car which is very dangerous) I used mine on my iPod while i was at my gym and to most part they worked. They cancelled out the awful gym music and i was able to workout with ease. However they did occasionally fall down and the sound was very poor. I had my iPod and the headphone volume up full just to hear it clearly but they had to be turned up to the FULL MAXIMUM just to hear what your in ear Sony ones did at HALF to a QUARTER of the volume that i had to amp just to hear my music through these. Even in my PC they still needed to be turned to 70 just to hear them clearly and at an acceptable level. That's another thing, when the sound was turned up I experienced a lot of distortion which was ear shattering horrible. I expected clear precise volume through my headphones and didn't get what i expected. For 60 i expected much better but this is a poor pair of headphones so they will not be used again. Shame cause the design is great but the sound really lets them down, and that's what you buy them of in the first place.

4.0 out of 5 stars Let spidey keep your loved one safe, 27 May 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I got this from Amazon and my son and I love it. We both love spider-man and this accompanied with his spider-man story book was a spellbinding and fun illustration. The lamp comes with three spools with all sorts of Spider-man images on it, from the emblem of Spidey's suit to him swinging through new York. The lamp itself is very good too, Just a flick of a switch turns the light from a projector to a nightlight and when morning comes, it can be turned off. There are however two downsides to this lamp, the first is that this takes only batteries. 3 AAs to be exact which last a while but for a lamp that cost 150 you'd expect an available mains adapter to you could plug it into the wall. Other problem is the price, This seems incredibly expensive for something that your kid would love. Don't get me wrong, it is a very good lamp but far too pricey. If you have a son who loves Spider-man and you have the spare money to afford it, then this will make you Dad of the year if you get this and give to your son. It did with me.


Zombie Flesh Eaters [Blu-ray] [1979]
Zombie Flesh Eaters [Blu-ray] [1979]
Dvd ~ Tisa Farrow
Price: 10.94

5.0 out of 5 stars Zombie flesheaters is here UNCUT and leaving you hungry for more., 19 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Now obviously you have heard the stories about this film from first being released in the 1970s in the cinema, deemed so strong and gruesome that they had to hand out sick bags (within good reason too) then the BBFC got hold of it, Banned it for years and then released it cut to ribbons. Then in the 2000s they re-released it uncut but still shaving a couple of secs from it, Now the new generation has reared its head from the grave and Arrow has re-released this vintage horror classic, FULLY UNCUT with a fantastic new transfer. If you want to see how the film originally looked, check out the original trailer that was used for the Vipco release, BIG DIFFERENCE! The film actually looks very crisp and there is an occasional grain but that to me adds to the film. I'm sure you know the story of the actual film so i don't need to explain that. The zombies are genuinely creepy and scary unlike nowadays, The skull like covers covered in maggots and worms sends shiver down your spine and how relentless they are to get their next meal is chilling. No matter what happens, they just keep moving towards their target, even the ones that can't see their prey. Walking like they are in ancient slumber until they get their target and their voracious appetite proves they are a force to be reckoned. The gruesome special effects are amazing considering this was a rip off of Dawn of the Dead, but somehow better what was shown in George A. Romero's horror masterpiece and Zombie Flesheaters (originally called just Zombie) is as much a masterpiece as Dawn of the Dead. It's done right and and to think the only really cheesy moment was the topless diving that leads to one of the films numerous and notoriously remembered scenes. Word of advice, anyone coming to this for the first time, BE WARNED this is definitely not for the squeamish or faint hearted and also don't watch this after eating. It's gory, it's gruesome and it's a great movie. Also if this movie doesn't make your blood run cold then believe me the ending will. Zombie Flesheaters look amazing on Blu-ray and easily worthy of any horror fans collection, just remember to have a bucket next to you!
