Cadbury Chocolate Machine Money Box
Cadbury Chocolate Machine Money Box

1.0 out of 5 stars Beware - you can't buy refills!, 26 Oct 2014
I wouldn't buy this again. Although my children loved it when they got it, is is cheap plastic, the chocolates get stuck and you can't buy the refills. I've been looking online and I can't buy the miniature chocolates anywhere so it's useless.

I loved this - the voices are so authentic... I laughed aloud at times at the dialogue, all the more poignant as I found it so moving. I think Maggie O'Farrell is getting better and better.

3.0 out of 5 stars okay but not great, 12 Oct 2013

I bought this in the large size for my tall 7 year old. It is way too big - especially round the middle. He is quite slim and it is very loose round the waist. Also the arms are too long and the whole thing is generally huge! So i'd say it's fairly generous in the sizing, and don't size up! It looks okay otherwise, although he doesn't like the v neck, which is quite low. It has a kind of skirt thing that hangs down, so along with the puffy sleeves, the result is a bit flouncy.

This is a beautiful item. It is small but not tiny, and it does not look cheap - it looks much more expensive than it is.

I have had a few items from Kit Heath. They are always of a very high standard - well made and very pretty. These are lovely and will make a fab gift. The box is very attractive too.

These were slightly bigger than I was expecting, but very pretty. The mount is quite substantial to make them stand out. They seem well made and will make an excellent gift. Also prompt delivery.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful edition of this book, 14 Sep 2012
This is not only a great story but a really beautiful book. I love the illustrations, and the paper is fantastic quality - it is a beautifully made book. A really good gift, and my daughter, who is nine, has not put it down all evening :)

3.0 out of 5 stars Kindle edition spoilt by garbled formulae., 23 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This should be an excellent introduction to the logic and construction of mathematical proofs. However, there are far too many examples and questions that are rendered unreadable by garbled mathematical formulae. This is not acceptable. This version is only marginally cheaper than the paperback, yet contains more typographical errors in the first few pages of chapter 3 than would be acceptable in an entire mathematical text.
