LEGO City Fire 60110: Fire Station  Mixed
LEGO City Fire 60110: Fire Station Mixed
Price: £54.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb lego set, 19 July 2016
Got this for my sons, who are absolutely delighted with it. It's probably the best lego set they've got, a big step up from previous fire station (60004) in my opinion.

Though it's not particularly cheap, you're getting a lot of Lego for the money. As well as the main 3 part fire station (one part being 3 stories, with a cool working fireman's pole), the vehicles are excellent - a basic fire car, a very nice police helicopter, and an excellent fire engine, with a superb extending ladder.

It's all excellent quality and very detailed. My son really enjoyed the build, he's 5, but was happy to sit for extended periods building it. Once finished, it's provided a great toy for him and his younger brother, with lots for them to play with.

In summary, a superb lego set, and highly recommended.


HoMedics Compact Percussion Heat Massager
HoMedics Compact Percussion Heat Massager
Price: £39.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good massager, 19 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Have had HoMedics product before, a seat based back massager, so was interested to try a handheld version.

I'm impressed with this. Simple to get going with, just plug in and go.

There are 2 settings, low and high - both a pretty powerful, the high setting in particular is great, and gives a really good, vibrant massage.

There are 2 different heads for the massager - these simply screw in/out. One is supposed to be for soft, and one for heat - that was the miss for me, and the reason for 4 stars rather than 5 - the heat was fairly minimal, and a bit disappointing.

Overall, a very good product - compact and powerful.


Sarum
Sarum
Price: £4.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Good idea, but boring, 10 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sarum (Kindle Edition)
Got this as I read and enjoyed London years ago, but maybe just because I was younger. I found Sarum puerile - it's a good idea at the core of it, and some of it is enjoyable, but generally the dull characters, the repetitive notes that someone has big feet, or small eyes or whatever, just to signpost they are related to certain people earlier in the book, makes it a tiresome read.

Got the TL-PA8030P Kit of these, and they are brilliant. I've got limited plug points, so the pass through was a must, but thought that might affect the speed. However, haven't seen any drop off at all, getting the full advertised speed with no problems.

Having 3 ethernet ports on the top is excellent, nice to have them easily accessible at the top.

Setup was ridiculously easy - I didn't do anything (including reading the manual!) - I just plugged one in downstairs, ethernet cable to my router, then plugged in upstairs with ethernet into my computer. Gave it a couple of minutes to power up, and my computer joined the network - the way this technology should work. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality - but NOT for 6 inch screen, 10 July 2016
This is an excellent quality 3D VR headset. Nice easy to open cover at front, and little sliding lock holds the phone in place.

The eye pieces are excellent too - nice soft sponge make them nice and comfortable on the eyes, and there is ability to adapt eye pieces wider, and also back and forward.

Unfortunately, holding a 6" phone as advertised is simply not the case. I've got an Oppo R7 Plus, which has a 6" screen, and it's not even close to being able to fit - so would make sure my phone is smaller than 6" before getting this case for it. Otherwise, highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent hozelock connector, 10 July 2016

This is a great value connector for an outside tap - fitted perfectly, and the metal gives it more of a quality feel, and good looking finish - highly recommended.

Anbear 3 in1 DisplayPort to HDMI/ DVI/VGA +audio + power adapter Converter
Offered by telepear
Price: £29.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent display adapter, 10 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent buy - I bought it for a work laptop, which only had display port, and the meeting rooms have a variety of connectors, and it fits the bill superbly - works with DVI, VGA, and HDMI, so all bases should be covered.

Not sure what the power is for - maybe driving multiple monitors, which I've not tried yet.

Good, cost effective option for you giving yourself a range of connection options - recommended.


Spider-Man: Maths Practice, Ages 5-6 (Marvel Learning)
Spider-Man: Maths Practice, Ages 5-6 (Marvel Learning)
by Scholastic
Edition: Paperback
Price: £4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent maths book, 10 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is an excellent book. My 5 year old is delighted with the challenge, and have Spiderman is the theme definitely drives interest - becomes something he'll suggest himself to do, rather than being suggested by parents.

It is a good range of activities, some fairly straightforward, some quite tricky, but provides a good mix to keep the child entertaining. Also includes reward stickers, which I think is a great tool for keeping kids interested and motivated.


Spider-Man: Writing Skills, Ages 4-5 (Marvel Learning)
Spider-Man: Writing Skills, Ages 4-5 (Marvel Learning)
by Scholastic
Edition: Paperback
Price: £4.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Good educational book, 9 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I like this book - my nearly four year old son is quite resistant to practising any kind of mark making and writing - obviously we try not to make a big deal about it, while quietly trying to encourage it, without much success.

He loves Spiderman, and this book has nailed it in getting him engaged. He was quite happy to sit and try joining the dots to make letters, and asking later in the day to do even more of it.

The theme, coupled with reward stickers for doing activities throughout has worked a treat.

Can't quite give it 5 stars, as it is fairly lightweight, and doesn't take a lot of time to go through it, but all in an all I would definitely recommend it.

Really pleased with these tongue scrapers - good value bundle, and the scrapers are nice and strong, with a firm handle - something that is often a let down on other tongue scrapers. highly recommended.
