5.0 out of 5 stars great boot, 1 Jan 2011
This review is from: Rocket Dog - Nokout (Apparel)
only problem is that the sole is dead slippy on wet polished surfaces, like just inside debenhams on a wet day! but boot is solid, warm, well made and has been with me for 2 years on many many dog walks in all weather. thumbs up!

this was a beautiful well made item but got no better treatment from the six year old who received it. a gorgeous dress but she'd have loved 2 or 3 cheaper ones for the money

This review is from: Childrens Worm Farm (Toy)
bought this for my 4 year old nephew who loves bugs. I'd read the reviews that told me to watch out for having to pay extra and wait for eggs to arrive so he had it all explained and loved it all.

2.0 out of 5 stars nice pic, dried up paint, 1 Jan 2011
= Durability:2.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
my niece LOVED this on Christmas morning and couldn't wait to start but told me on boxing day that the paint was dried up too much so she'd had to use her other paints. Shame.

5.0 out of 5 stars beloved toy, 1 Jan 2011
This review is from: Lamaze Octotunes (Baby Product)
My toddler saw this at a friends house before christmas and played with nothing else. Santa was kind enough to get her one and she loves it! It wouldn't be more than a cute cuddly toy until the child has large and strong enough hands to squash the legs and make horn noises, each leg a different pitch, but at two plus it's loads of fun (and her 9 year old sister loves it too!)

4.0 out of 5 stars not quite PS3 but still fun, 18 Mar 2010
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
A bit like Wii singing games you can quickly exhaust the range of stuff on offer to tax your brain, but this is great for a big get together and should be saved for that sort of occasion.

5.0 out of 5 stars curiously entertaining for young and old!, 18 Mar 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: MySims: Kingdom (Wii) (Video Game)
I bought this game for my 8yr old daughter who has learning difficulties and can't read. She loved it and is slowly meandering through islands across the kingdom, completing tasks and gaining king points. She needs adult support to help her read but is learing about watering plants, milling flour and the use of gears in machinery as she goes. Her grandma (60 years her senior) has been helping and enjoyed it so much I bought it for her too.

Now my mum and my daughter enjoy playing together and seperately, chatting on the phone about problems and how to overcome them. I think it's amazing that a computer game can engage young and old alike and the fact that your little character progresses faster if they bother to chat to (and be nice to) other characters is an additional teaching aid for a child with limited social understanding. Who says computer games aren't educational...?
