Simon Swipe
It's more fun to play this game console than play the equivalent App on a tablet or mobile phone. It's light and comfortable to hold. It does feel a bit similar to the 'Bop It' game initially, however Simon Swipe is more of a personal challenge in a sound/sight memory test where as the 'Bop It' games tests quick reaction. We haven't explored the game variations yet but there seems to be a multiplayer party game and other variations. The instructions that come with this game are very clear with a useful quick Easy Start guide. It is a familiar/simple concept and my 6 year old is enjoying the challenge of getting to different levels.

Melissa and Doug Witches Costume - Age 3-6
This was very well received by the 4 year old recipient. The accessories (hat and broom stick) are great, lovely and sparkly and a clever design to make the broom a safer item for a 4 year old to wave around. The dress is well made and feels better quality than many others on sale. But as I often find with Melissa and Doug dresses, it is on the small side again. I'd estimate age 3 comfortably. Never up to age 6. However as the back is secured by bits of velcro it is just possible for my 4 year old to wear it. There was some initial fidgeting and pulling it about. Once we got passed that, this has been one of the most popular costumes so far as it stayed on all morning and it has initiated the countdown to halloween ... let's hope it still fits!

Great looking tableware and practical. The plastic cover one is very attractive and useful however obviously the glass covered one can be used in the oven. This is a modern day versatile upmarket pyrex dish.

Have given this four stars because it seems to do everything and is beautifully designed. Perhaps other s will give it 5 stars but for me it is too complicated and hard to believe that there will be many takers at this relatively high price for what is essentially an electric toothbrush.All be it one with some fascinating extras.

This review is from: Selected Stories (Paperback)
Every time you get short stories by Alice Munro they are so pleasurable. This is not a 'one time' read as they are stories that have many strands that can be re-read and enjoyed again - there is always something extra to notice. Alice Munro often seems to have a what if scenario at a particular moment someone had just missed, just met, taken the wrong turning etc., would what happened next have changed the course of someone's life? These are real people . She has a great ability to paint in a person with all their mannerisms just in a few words.

This review is from: Le Banquier (Paperback)
Great story. This gives such a great insight as to how finite buying a horse with a good pedigree can become. Absolutely fascinating not just because of the information given but also the style of writing and the intrigue Dick Francis is so good at.

This review is from: Mary Stuart (Paperback)
Wonderful biography. Beautifully written. It flows so well and the reader is easily transported.. Stefan Zweig was able to get this published in 1935 despite all the upheaval of the rise of nazism and anti semitism in his home country. This is so well recorded in ' A life in letters ' by Joseph Roth.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's nicely presented including a ballet dress, 5 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Ballerina Dress
Although the stated age for this outfit is 3-6, I'd say more age 3 - 4 max. It's small. It's nicely presented including a ballet dress, tiara, pants and ballet shoes. My 4 year old was excited about opening it up and becoming the ballerina. It looks pretty, but like with most of these outfits, the 'itchy' bits soon detract from the overall enjoyment. On this one it was the tiny bit of netting round the sleeve so the dress had to come off. The tiara wouldn't stay on her head so that got discarded also. The shoes are a little bit strange as they are like half a 'slip on' ballet shoe made of material with some ribbons to keep them on. An elasticated full fabric shoe may have served this purpose better. Anyway, they too were discarded promptly. So we were left with a 4 year old in a pair of pink velvety pants. She was very happy with those and kept them on for hours. So not a total loss, but disappointing as we didn't get the full ballerina experience!

5.0 out of 5 stars The most nicely presented iron I've seen, 26 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The most nicely presented iron I've seen, arriving in a floral box with lid, it makes an attractive storage solution.
The iron itself is lightweight, which makes it easy to use and it glides smoothly. The pointy tip makes it easier to do tricky bits, eg short sleeves, gathered fronts or around buttons. The cord is a reasonable length, although could do with being a fraction longer. Even though the cord has a swivel clip the cord still felt a bit stiff and doesn't 'swivel' effectively but this might improve with use as I've only used a couple of times so far.
I can't comment on the calc clean function yet as it's too new to test that, but I'm pleased with this iron. It does the job well , I'd rate it 4/5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Plus an easy descaling knob, 26 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A very light iron to use. The base holds 1.5 litres of water. With the technology no fiddly temperature regulator as fabric is recognised. There is an Eco button to conserve energy and a calc button which lights when iron needs descaling. Plus an easy descaling knob. Very well designed. There is an automatic shut off if iron not used fro 2 minutes.
