Where's the Meerkat?
Where's the Meerkat?
by Paul Moran
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice fun book, 17 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Where's the Meerkat? (Hardcover)
Exactly the same principle as the 'Where's Wally' books, but with lovable meerkat characters instead - which are very popular at the moment.

A good quality valance sheet at an excellent value for money price. I would certainly recommend this item, (albeit after limited usage).

3.0 out of 5 stars Snapperific! - ish, 8 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Product exactly as shown and very nice; seem to fit nicely, too. (Can't report on their durability as yet, as only just received.) My 18 month old son certainly likes them. After 6 months the plastic on the top of the boots has taken on a mottled and "peely" appearance. (However, as my son has grown out of them anyway, it's not really an issue.)


Legend: The Genesis of Civilisation
Legend: The Genesis of Civilisation
by David Rohl
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.26

3.0 out of 5 stars An interesting theory, 25 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not as good as 'Test of Time', but this because the "evidence" (as it is) for this period of history is pretty thin on the ground; nonetheless, Rohl intricately presents some credible ideas. If you are interested in Asiatic and/or Biblical history, this is worth reading, although some of the detail is possibly a little over ambitious. The overall theory certainly has merit; even as an atheist, I have no problem with the general concepts. Unfortunately, most of Rohl's theory relies on speculative (albeit informed) opinion and, at best, rather tenuous evidence. It also draws quite a lot on research by long dead [albeit eminent] archaeologists - such is the nature of the knowledge of this period of history. Ultimately, the theory (which Rohl summarises at the end of the book) is very compelling and, if correct, of great significance; but, given the singular lack of hard facts, can only ever be viewed as 'an interesting idea'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Value, 25 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This dummy-saver has a velcro fastening for the dummy and a spring clip (mostly plastic). The ribbon is a little short. Not the best I've ever seen, but one of the cheapest and better than ones made with beads and/or with all-metal clips. It does the job and seems to stay attached to my child at least as well as more expensive ones. I would recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value., 22 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good value at £9.99 delivered. They cut through my toe nails with ease, so they can probably cope with anybody's, possibly even an elephant's! However, the closure clip can be difficult and I sometimes had trouble gripping them correctly, causing the nail to be bent rather than cut (not particularly pleasant) - although that may be due to my lack of skill, rather than a fault on the part of the clippers, as I have not used clippers before.

4.0 out of 5 stars Death to the evil ones!, 21 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well it certainly put the death nail in the infestation that I had; however, I can't fully attest to its effectiveness as I used this when the infestation was already close to extinction.
My advice: if you have an infestation, but no pet - mine came in on a second hand carpet - then hit them continuously with everything you can until none appear for several days, then hopefully that will be an end to the devil's spawn. I used a combination of Indorex (don't pay more than ca £10 for this) and Raid 'Ant & Cockroach' sprays, which are relatively "non-toxic" and which can be applied directly to affected areas. Using a fogger was the final nail in the head for the diabolical little bug-gers!

4.0 out of 5 stars Small (ideal for finger nails), 9 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A perfectly good pair of nail scissors. Quite small and therefore no use for thick adult toe-nails, but okay for other toe-nails and finger nails - very sharp. Probably need clippers for adult toe-nails, but pretty good otherwise.

Good value for the money; good quality kitchen scissors that will do the job. Not particularly big, but don't need to be. I would certainly recommend these.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant value for money, 5 Jan. 2012
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Simba-Smoby Baby Keyboard (Toy)
I would rate it 4.5/5. Not that there's anything wrong with it! Fantastic value for money at £14.99 delivered. Loads of buttons, with tempo backing which can be adjusted for speed! Piano can also play in animal sounds! And it can record a clip of the music being played. Slightly smaller than a computer keyboard, its 's not too big/heavy for little ones and reasonable quality. Only criticism is that the volume is either a bit loud or bit quiet; there is no real adjustment.
