Vintage Luxury Genuine Real Leather Flip Case Wallet For Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini Black
Vintage Luxury Genuine Real Leather Flip Case Wallet For Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini Black

4.0 out of 5 stars I really like this - fits my Galaxy S3 Mini like a ..., 10 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really like this - fits my Galaxy S3 Mini like a well-fitting glove - but if it is real leather, it has a very plasticky smell. If advertised as 'luxury' I would expect it to at least smell good. Maybe the leather is coated? However, it's a neat design at a very reasonable price; I shall hope that the smell will fade.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply stunning, 26 Dec. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lost and Found [DVD] (DVD)
A simple story of a boy, a penguin and friendship. Stunning animation, beautiful,atmospheric music and so moving that my 14 year old daughter and I cry every time we watch it. A must-have purchase for any age - just make sure you buy plenty of tissues too!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great selection and the CD is really useful, 1 Dec. 2011
This is a great selection of songs, suitable for use in the ABRSM Grade 5 singing exam. The CD is really useful, with 2 tracks for each song - spoken lyrics and piano accompaniment.
My only negative would be that some of the tempi are a little 'brisk' but they are so beautifully played that I listen to many of them as pieces in their own right!
These books are a really useful tool for students to practise to and also for teachers, especially if a song is new to you or if you need pronunciation help.

4.0 out of 5 stars OK but not perfect, 4 Oct. 2011
This cover has a nice design and protects the phone well. However, as previous reviewers have pointed out, in order to access the on/off button and the volume control, you have to attack the skin with a pair of nail scissors! The skin has the indentations but they are not cut out.
Other than that, it is a decent quality skin, although after a few weeks use, mine already looks rather grubby.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value; suitable for teens+, 5 Jan. 2010
I bought these as a set for my 12 year old daughter. Although an excellent reader, she is finding these a little hard going, having to refer to a dictionary frequently as the use of language is, at times, a little beyond her. However, lovely books nonetheless and expanding her vocabulary!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful images, 5 Jan. 2010
My dance-mad daughter has one of these calendars every year and loves them. There are some beautiful images; at the end of the year she saves some and frames them. Very happy, as usual.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value for money & charges new chromatic, 20 July 2009
I bought this for my 14 year old son, after much research trying to find a dock that would play and charge the Nano Chromatic. This does - and I am now going to buy one for myself as this really is impressive value for money. Simply plug in, pop in your I-pod and away you go. With adaptors for other I-pod models and the facility to connect any other make of MP3 player too, this has great sound quality, can pack a punch in terms of volume and looks classy too.
What more could you want for such a great price?

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth watching, 20 Mar. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this film because I am a fan of both Colin Firth and Matthew Broderick.
Colin Firth gives a fine performance in his role as a single father, deserted by his wife and left to care for his two young children. There is a wonderful tenderness between him and Helen Hunt - they are so natural together. Both find themselves in traumatic situations and their connection is touching and wholly believable.
Matthew Broderick's role as Hunt's husband is smaller but provides a necessary contrast. As a previous 'real-life' partner of Hunt's, their scenes together feel natural and spontaneous.
Helen Hunt is lovely. With very little make up and lank hair for much of the film she gives such a touching and, at times,pained performance that is really beautiful. Her commentary on the film is also well worth listening to and gives a real insight into what she hoped to create as a director.
There is so much to recommend in this film. Buy it now!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb value for money, 25 Jun. 2007
I also bought one of these for my husband for Christmas last year. The reception is outstanding and it is so easy to use. A great model for the price and stylish too. I would recommend this to anyone considering the move to digital - you won't regret it.
