Melissa & Doug Reusable Sticker Pad Vehicles
Melissa & Doug Reusable Sticker Pad Vehicles

Reversible Sticker Pad - Vehicles
Young children can never have too many stickers. This pad has different scenes to help with creative stories, imaginative play and the early years educational learning about different types of travel. Being a big pad, it is easy to display the end result on a wall rather than keep it stuck in a sticker book, which is a nice touch. Its a plus having a non gender specific theme too. Was very happy to receive this Vehicles pad for my girls.

Melissa and Doug - Butterfly Friendship Bead set
This is an attractive looking gift, neatly and nicely presented. Two girls of 4 and 6 both enjoyed making a necklace each. The 4 year old needed a fair amount of supervision and assistance. The clasps are a bit fiddly and tricky to get apart, but older children would probably manage to do more independently. The activity lasted about half an hour, but it's something that they would probably come back to again. As you'd expect from Melissa and Doug, the quality is good.

Melissa and Doug - Design Your Own Bracelets
These bracelets provided an activity that worked really well with a 4 and 6 year old together with no supervision necessary. It is an easy to do, indoor activity, which kept them both interested for a short while. It's pretty quick though, but they both finished their own bracelet which they then wore for the rest of the day. The bracelets are of good quality so can be re-used, and are very sparkly and appealing. I would definitely recommend and will be getting more of these to use at a party, or give as a gift. A very popular item.

Great music and songs. Had 4 year old and 6 year old sisters completely entranced with the storyline, the action and the singing. Wonderful colours and characters very interesting which kept the audience captive. Adults too enjoyed the whole package of the Disney experience.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I opened this with a four year old girl who was very excited by the cover illustration of Spiderman driving his jet car and spinning a web to catch the evil spidey. I pointed out to her that Good Spiderman was technically driving without due care and attention and failing to have proper control of a motor vehicle on a public road but she was insistent we rip open the box and assemble the pieces.
Unlike some lego packages, this one was actually "Easy to Build" as advertsied on the box. A well thought out leaflet gave pictoral illustrations describing in simple terms how to put the pieces together. It took me five minutes, the child was content to play with the preassembled Spidermen (Good and Bad) whilst I did so.
The quality of the finished product was very good indeed... rubber wheels that move freely on their axis while locked in place and an attractive Spidey logo and colour scheme. The attention to detail was impressive including the faux flames shooting from the back of Spidey's car.
The only criticism I have would be towards the web thing that Spiderman is casting over his enemy... its plastic and a bit odd looking and in my opinion a piece of plastic coated wire attached to a real net would have been an improvement. Similarly the somewhat abstract piece of wall that the evil Spiderman stands next to just seems incongrous with the other pieces although the plastic net can be attached to depict a spiderman trapped in a web, you have to ask yourself what kind of a self respecting Spiderman (Evil or otherwise) allows himself to get trapped in a web?
Never the less, the four year old was absorbed in the scene and she played for twenty minutes in a fantasy world where she was both good and evil Spiderman and could not give a stuff about the irony of Spidermen trapped in webs so I would say that this product will be a very popular addition to an already globally famous brand.
I am never going to Lego land though, its over priced and the queues are legendary. Never, ever!

I have not yet had an opportunity of testing the Master Nailer. If it meets the Tac Wise claims for its performance this represents a formidable tool for both amateurs and professionals. It comes with a generous supply of Staples and Nails and an operator's manual containing clear and simple instructions. I have been told that it works very efficiently but to take care as it needs a steady hand.

4.0 out of 5 stars Galt Sewing Kit, 28 May 2014
This review is from: Galt Sewing Case (Toy)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The Galt sewing kit was a welcome gift to my 6 year old daughter and myself who are keen beginner sewers. Unfortunately one of the clips fell off the case after the first opening, which didn't bother my 6 year old too much, but isnt the best first impression. and made me query whether the rest of the gift was of similar quality. Luckily we were keen to start. The first project selected was the puppy in the handbag. The instructions are good, for an adult to follow. I could then show my 6 year old. The recommended age states 3 - 12 years, however I'd say 6-12 years. This definitely needs adult supervision due to the sharp needles and need to do different stitches. A nice range of projects and a nice activity to do together.

Marvellous to see this updated version of an old favourite. Disappointed to find no blade included presumably because of health and safety.Bought some blades in Tesco although not much choice . Well designed. The handle has a plastic imitation ebony looks good but found to be slippery when used in the shower. Provides a good shave.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is disappointing and very expensive for what it offers. It is packed with coloured shredded paper in a way which suggests it is designed to deceive and will disappoint a child. Adults will have the job of clearing up the mess of shredded paper. I agree with the reviewer who described it as being of no benefit to art or creativity. Very disappointing for a Galt toy. They have a wonderful first sewing kit for children so well thought out and yet something like this can let the Galt name down.
