5.0 out of 5 stars Top quality dishwashing tablets, 25 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
These are superb dishwasher tablets - I used to be fairly brand disloyal, and look for decent bargains, but too often resulted in cheapie tablets not doing the trick.

Finish has become my brand of choice, and I've been really impressed with these - in particular, I think the Rinse Aid part of the tablet has left the glassware (which we wash a fair amount of) less streaky, and gives it that squeaky clean feeling.

They have a wee membrane around them, so I've been quite happily throwing them into the dishwasher with using the drawer, which is another faff saver.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best coffee for Dolce Gusto machine, 23 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got this as I got a Dolce Gusto machine as a gift, and didn't really like the "standard" coffee that came with it.

I've tried a few of the different Dolce Gusto options, and don't think the range is that great, but this one definitely stands out on its own as being a cut above. Nice strong coffee flavour - I enjoyed it in the lungo sized cups you get, but capsule can easily be left running long enough to make a good standard sized mug of coffee.

The best coffee you can get for the Dolce Gusto machines - recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top quality electric toothbrush, 23 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Didn't know what to expect from this highly priced toothbrush - have tried a variety of electric toothbrushes over the years, and found them generally not much more effective than an ordinary toothbrush.

This is a very different from most electric toothbrushes. You can see the difference on unpacking the box. The brush body is very sleek, with no visible area for lights, or excessive styling.
There is a little, fairly heavy glass which sits on top of the plug charger. To charge, you simply put the brush in the glass, and it will wirelessly charge in there - very convenient.

Switching on reveals that there are actually lights on the body - showing the variety of cleaning modes, but you simply don't see them when they're not selected - again, a very classy touch.

The performance of the brush is excellent. Definitely the closest to a dentist's cleaning brush I've tried at home - the brush head seems to oscillate very quickly but quietly, and you can feel the difference. There are stronger modes than the standard clean too, and again, they feel very effective.

Also included is a travel case - another nice touch, with a charging point in the base, you plug in, and the brush will happily charge while closed up in the case.

In summary, a superb toothbrush, highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars very good lego set, 18 Jan. 2015
My son got this for his birthday, and instantly loved it.

It's an excellent little set - you get a 2 flash looked motorbikes, a good sized pick up truck, with a little trailer behind it to carry the bikes themselves.
There are also 2 minifigs, both have a choice between a cap and a cool helmet with visor, and a little podium with a trophy.

The truck has a decent amount of bits to construct, but is easy enough to do. The bikes are very straightforward, as the main red body of the bike is an all in one pre-produced pieces, so the bikes consist of about 5 pieces. Both bikes are the same, only difference is the stickers on the side.

In summary, this is an excellent little set, highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent wireless earphones, 16 Jan. 2015
Always fancied a pair of Bluetooth earphones, but the focus seems to be on over ear headphones, rather than earphones. But saw these and thought these looked pretty smart.

Really impressed with these so far.

In the box there are the earphones themselves, a short micro USB charger cable, 3 sets of rubber ear buds (in different sizes), and 3 sets of ear hooks.

I found the middle size fairly comfortable, though I would usually take a large in earphones.

The build quality looks and feels good, and I liked the colourful lime green cable connecting into black buds.

Setup was very easy. Simple to put into pair mode (holding on button for 5 seconds) - my Galaxy Note 2 (running Android 4.4.2) identified them immediately, and paired quickly.

I then played a variety of music and videos while listening to them. The sound quality was excellent, very clear across the board, a pleasure to listen to.

Controls are excellent too, and again, work no problem on Android. One earphone has a + and - button for volume, and holding them for longer executes different functions, like skipping tracks.
There is one other button for power, which, when tapped will play/pause. All worked flawlessly.

In summary, highly recommended.


Crayola Widescreen Light Designer

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant concept, well executed, 14 Jan. 2015
My son got this as a present, I hadn't seen it before, and think it's superb.

It's a nice big screen. It takes 3 AA batteries, which provide a very bright back light. The child can then use one of the 6 provided pens to draw on the screen - the result is a lovely luminous mark on the screen, looking like you're writing in pens with light up ink in them.

The pens clip neatly into the bank, so it's all a nice self contained unit.

Definitely grabs kids attention immediately, and a great way of encouraging them to draw and write - highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent interdental brushes, 12 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Got these on a recommendation by my dentist - and glad I did, they are excellent.

Wire is fairly thin, I've had no problems getting them between my teeth.

For me they last about 5/6 uses, by which point they are bending so easily that they can't be used (and are probably fairly unhygenic too). However, given the cost, this seems pretty reasonable.

Highly recommended.


The Deadly 7
The Deadly 7
by Garth Jennings
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.85

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny and entertaining, 12 Jan. 2015
This review is from: The Deadly 7 (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Got this as thought it looked quite quirky with the monsters on the front, and my son might quite enjoy it.

I thought it was enjoyable it from the very first page. Obviously important with kids to grip them from the start, and the first pages are entertaining, funny, and gripping in equal measure.

The rest of the book is in a very similar vein. I really enjoyed a lot of the language , fluid and clever, it's an excellent book for probably about a 10 year old (obviously give or take a year or 2 of depending on reader capability).
It's fairly chunky for a younger person's book - but I think the quality of the writing, and the wonderful anarchic nature of the multitude of monsters throughout the book will easily hold their attention and enjoyment throughout.

In summary, highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent HDMI cable, 12 Jan. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'm enjoying the AmazonBasics range, having tried a wide variety of these items now - they seem to be expanding to cover a lot of different items.

I've been very impressed with this, connectors have a good quality build feel to them, and cable is a good length, and also feels quality.

I had no problems plugging in and immediately streaming video from phone and tablet on to the telly. Highly recommended.

Very pleased with these bath salts, do a great job in relaxing weary muscles.

Packaged well, and delivered quickly - unlike other reviewers, I did get the wooden scoop, which I thought was quite a good addition to the bag.

Highly recommended.
