5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Adapter, 18 Sep 2014
Got this to provide additional charging ports in my car, and am really impressed.

The finish is good quality, nice brushed chrome on the most visible section, and decent quality plastic for the rest of it.

Feels like a good solid adapter, rather the potential electric shock hazard that cheaper options provide.

Excellent power output, charges items quickly. Just a note you have to provide your own cables.

In summary, highly recommended.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an excellent ironing cover. Really easy to fit (some board covers can be an absolute faff), this was no problem.

End result is good - looks nice, and provides a decent surface to iron onto with the foam backing. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent idea, 14 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Tried unsuccessfully to move my son out of his cot bed, and he fell out of bed first night. So picked this up to help.

Has worked a treat. He's never fallen out of bed with this under the sheet. It's easy to put in under the sheet, and didn't seem to bother him at all while it was in the bed.

Removed it after 2/3 months, and it seems to have done the trick in training him to sleep more centrally in the bed. There have been 1 or 2 falls since removing it (though thankfully onto the mattress we placed there in expectation!), but that's over the course of 6 months, so it's clearly been a big help. Highly recommended.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent tool, 14 Sep 2014
This is a great wee flint and striker - I've never ever used one of these before, and it only took 60 seconds watching a youtube video, and a couple of attempts, and I could do it.

Hard to argue with cost and ease of use - highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent music player for running, 14 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got this as a replacement for a lost iPod Shuffle. had been tempted just to get a replacement shuffle, but when I looked at the difference between cost of a shuffle versus this - and realising the extra capacity and a screen that I could have by going for this instead.

Have been really impressed. Functional screen, good capacity for the money, and can be added to with microSD card.
Clip at the back does the job very well, and has been a perfect running companion.

One tip would be to choose United States as the region, otherwise the volume levels are quite severely limited.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good quality set, 14 Sep 2014
My son loves his tumbletot classes, and has great fun every week, so got these so we could do our own class, and use the sticks to tie in with the CD we got from Tumbletots.

It's a good quality, nice colourful wooden sticks, and a couple of nice wee beanbags. So does a great job for 2 kids - definitely recommended.


Morphy Richards 43615 Jug Kettle 1.7 Litres - 3 KW - Stainless Steel
Morphy Richards 43615 Jug Kettle 1.7 Litres - 3 KW - Stainless Steel
Price: £19.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value kettle, 14 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My previous kettle packed in after 3 years service, so got this as a replacement.

Very impressed with it. Was going for the brushed chrome finish to fit in with the other stuff in my kitchen, but several of the kettles I looked at like this seemed very pricey - i.e. £50 and up.

All I need was something that looks decent, and boils water in a reasonable time - so didn't really want to spend a lot of cash on it.

This is ideal. Looks very nicely finished, nice brushed chrome finish, and a clear plastic switch that lights blue when kettle is on. It boils at a decent speed, and isn't too loud. Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent effort, but potential big bills for apps, 14 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Have found this a pretty mixed offering from LeapFrog.

I like the construction of the LeapPad generally - it feels very solid and safe, especially for little hands. However, the screen is pretty small. Though decent enough quality, I would have expected something bigger for the price.

Actual use of the tablet is pretty reactive, so didn't seem a lot of lag moving around screens and opening apps.

The big disappointment for me was the bundled apps. The apps bundled with the tablet are extremely limited - the pack includes things like a Clock and a Calculator, hardly cutting edge. The pet app is pretty nice, and was good to get with it, and you get a choice of one free download from a selection - I would have thought given the price, it would have been as easy to bundle the entire selection in.

The apps available for download seem pretty extortionate - there is very little in the cheaper (i.e. £0 - £5) category - top seller is an Octonauts app for £20. All seems a bit pricey.

In summary, it has several good points, it is a solid tablet for kids, but I don't think the price point versus screen size + what's provided with the tablet, when balanced with the expectation of a fairly big outlay to buy a decent range of apps, represents particularly good value.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent coffee, 11 Sep 2014
Got this when I got a Dolce Gusto coffee machine, and wasn't particularly taken with their Americano flavour.

I think it's excellent - one pod makes a full cup of strong, tasty coffee. It's got a really nice flavour to it, and is my default coffee to drink from the Docle Gusto machine now. Highly recommended.
