Desigual Girl's Fred Leggings
Desigual Girl's Fred Leggings
Price: 12.47 - 29.00

2.0 out of 5 stars Beware sizing - wrongly listed by Amazon, 15 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought leggings listed by Amazon as for a 9 year old. What I received were leggings for a 5 to 8 year old. Digging into Desigual sizing, Their Medium is 5 to 8 year old, while Large is for a 9 year old. I will gift the first pair (they are cute), and I've now ordered what Amazon lists as 11 year old size in the hopes that the leggings will fit my 8 year old. What a palaver.


Espadrij Women's Classic Textile Espadrilles
Espadrij Women's Classic Textile Espadrilles
Price: 4.99 - 9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Vive la France!, 6 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Espadrij makes its espadrilles in France (and I believe in Spain) in the traditional manner. They are comfortable and the price is fair.

I made a big mistake last year and bought ultra cheap espadrilles from another vendor promoted on Amazon. Those impostors started falling apart the second time I wore them.

Hesitated on buying Espadrij, largely because the brand name is silly (to me anyway). But the branding is unobtrusive and the quality's great. Thank you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent - helped me spot the fake!, 16 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Only realized I had a fake Rainbow Loom when this storage box arrived. My so-called Rainbow Loom didn't fit! I quickly replaced the impostor with the genuine article (obvious when you see how better made they are).
The box is great, with copious space for bands. My daughter loves it.
By the way, check if you have a real or fake Rainbow Loom on the manufacturer's website: [...]

1.0 out of 5 stars False advertising: NOT 100% cotton, 6 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Look at the shirt description on Amazon: "Material: 100% cotton poplin." This is utterly false. The shirt I now have in my hands is tagged with "70% cotton, 30% polyester." I specifically wanted 100% cotton so am not at all happy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully acted and still gripping, 4 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Hubby and I saw all the episodes when they first came out many moons ago. Bought the entire set as a Christmas treat to ourselves. The drama is still compelling, and in some ways there's even more pleasure in seeing how the world has changed then and now.

I remain astonished at the quality of the acting - not just by the principals, but also the support cast in various episodes. Alas, the great Philip Madoc is no longer with us, but I'll be replaying this for years to come. BTW, can anyone tell me if Madoc's mellifluous voice is still used to narrate the history of Caernarfon Castle?


Highlander Mountain Hat - Black, Large
Highlander Mountain Hat - Black, Large
Price: 10.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Good coverage, smallish sizing, 4 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I first bought the small/medium, but it was too small. Gave it to my 11 year old son, who loved it. Then bought the large/XL and it fits just fine - and I am a not big-headed female. Good ear coverage, comfortable and adjustable. A good deal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every girl needs at least one, 4 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you want them pert and immovable, then this is the bra for you. There's a size for every physical configuration. Sadly, the more adventurous colours are rarely to be found in some sizes. But this is not a bra to be seen in sans shirt. Meanwhile, if you're going to a job interview or an important meeting, want utter security and a flattering silhouette, then the Triumph Doreen is an investment worth making.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good deal - but more colours desired, 4 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Flattering cut and true to size. Rapid delivery from this seller and good packaging to minimize creasing. I would buy more in other colours - if only these were available! Navy is out of stock; no other options exist. Shame, there's money on the table Busy Clothing!

1.0 out of 5 stars Shoddy hardback quality, 16 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I loved these books as a child. My series of paperbacks were worn out so I couldn't hand them on. But I wanted to introduce my 7-year-old daughter to the Little House world, and ordered a hardback version of the first in the series as a Christmas gift. The cover's colour reproduction, showing one of Garth Williams' wonderful illustrations, is abysmal. The internal paper quality is shoddy. It doesn't say the paper is recycled which would have been some excuse. I wanted to build up an heirloom set, but I won't be buying more of this edition. Instead, I'll look for good quality used.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous and fun, 13 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cost little, but delivered great joy over Hallowe'en. Reluctantly now taking these down, but they will live on for at least another year. Well done and thank you Amscan!
