Clevamama Mattress Protector Double 135 x 190 - Fitted
Clevamama Mattress Protector Double 135 x 190 - Fitted
Price: £27.62

5.0 out of 5 stars Top quality mattress protector, 23 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Really impressed with this mattress protector. Nice and soft material, none of the hard crinkly type material that a lot of other protectors for kids have.

Fits double bed well, and does the job perfectly. Highly recommended.


Thomas & Friends Wooden Railway Cranky The Crane
Thomas & Friends Wooden Railway Cranky The Crane
Price: £22.53

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent wooden toy, 13 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got this for me 2 year old son's birthday, and he absolutely loves it.

The price was reduced to a decent level on Amazon, which was good as the Thomas Wooden Railway range can often be quite expensive.

It was bigger than I thought it was going to be, but as made it feel fairly substantial. Build quality is very good, finish is nice, and magnet works very well.

In summary, highly recommended.

Price: £14.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality light bulb, 13 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a top quality LED light bulb. Colour and brightness are excellent, definitely a decent approximation of a standard 60w bulb.

Runs fairly hot, but not ridiculously so. Only other point to note is that it isn't dimmable.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent adapter, 9 Oct 2014
Got this to provide additional charging ports in my car, and am 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.

Excellent power output, charges items quickly. Good solution having the micro-USB cable built in and ready to go, and having flexibility on the other ports.

In summary, highly recommended.


LeapFrog LeapBand Activity Tracker (Blue)
LeapFrog LeapBand Activity Tracker (Blue)
Price: £29.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good activity tracker for kids, 8 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a good fun activity tracker. My son loves it because I have one, and he feels like he's doing the same as daddy.

I'm impressed with the nice, large colourful screen. The characters match his LeapPad too, so instantly he was familiar with the look and feel.

He loves being active with it, but he has figured out how to do the activities without bothering with the activity stuff. But he does enjoy being active, so he's happy to follow the activities.

It also came with a free app for the LeapPad, which was a good touch too.

In summary, highly recommended.


Wind in the Wires
Wind in the Wires
by Duncan Grinnell-Milne
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £14.40

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent memoir, 2 Oct 2014
This review is from: Wind in the Wires (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Got this as I've always been fascinated by the air war in World War One, how a very new technology was used and adapted to warfare so quickly, and the culture that developed around the aces of this era.

This book had me gripped from the start. Though just an initial description of meeting someone on a train to the basic training, and the description of watching his first flight, it grabbed my attention as giving a clear feeling about of the culture of that time, and the excitement so many of these young men had at learning to fly.

The rest of the book is hugely entertaining, and continues in the same vein - found it really easy to put myself in the author's shoes, and feel like I was living and learning with him. The enthused descriptions of being high in the clouds really give a great feeling of freedom.

Amazing to think this happened 100 years ago now, and for some reason this makes the experiences resonate even more.

In summary, highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The reception I get from it is perfect, didn't have any problems installing, 29 Sep 2014
Very impressed with the piece of technology - I thought years ago the expectation was actually to have bigger aerials for Digital TV - but in fact this is much smaller than old style aerials.

It's a bit smaller than around about the size and thickness of a standard sized cereal box - really neat looking, well constructed and professionally made.

The reception I get from it is perfect, didn't have any problems installing, TV picked up signal no bother, and channels tuned in without any difficult.

In summary, highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent charging solution, 29 Sep 2014
Been looking for a central USB charging solution for a while, and this fits the bill perfectly.

Solid construction, comes with power cord, and the unit itself is about the size of a standard Apple laptop power adapter, so pretty neat.

All that's needed are the devices, and cables to charge them. I've been really impressed with its performance, charges as expected and looks the part, so a 5 star rating from me.


Leifheit Airboard Deluxe XL 72589 Ironing Board
Leifheit Airboard Deluxe XL 72589 Ironing Board
Offered by KG Homewares
Price: £74.83

5.0 out of 5 stars Top quality ironing board, 23 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Really impressed with this ironing board. First impression was the size of it - the board itself seems long and wide, definitely a bit bigger than my standard sized ironing board.

The it can go to is also very good - being fairly tall (over 6 foot), I'm often having to hunch over when ironing, and this isn't a problem with this board. The mechanism to raise the board is also very smooth, no set heights, just adjusts to whatever height you need it at.

The weight is another big benefit - easily the lightest ironing board I've ever used.

The cover has a good foam backing, and feels like a good surface to iron on.

In summary, highly recommended.


Breville Coffee Express
Breville Coffee Express
Price: £29.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Good coffee maker, 22 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Just recently started drinking coffee (after several years of thinking I didn't like it!), so was on the look out for exactly this kind of thing.

Have found it really useful. It's very easy to use, and produces excellent coffee.

Only downside is that it's a bit bigger than I expected - had hoped I could use it on my desk at work, but I would think it's quite bulky for that. I mainly find it useful making a flask with a couple of cups in it and take it through to the study - for this it's pretty good, as allows me to have a decent amount of coffee, and keeps it nice and hot without having to trek back and forth to the kitchen.

Great to have everything dishwasher safe as well, no messing around cleaning it afterwards.

In summary, recommended.
