5.0 out of 5 stars A High Fun Party at Low Cost and Stress!, 19 July 2012
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:3.0 out of 5 stars 
This turned out to be a perfect party to host at home with minimum effort, keeping 8+ children entertained and engaged for 1 hours. Children's parties can be quite a drain on the bank balance, but this was a pleasantly economical way for the children to have lots of 'controlled' party fun and games with their friends. We used it for Hallowe'en but it would work equally as well for a birthday party for boys or for non-girlie girls!

My son had one of these as a birthday present and this was a replacement as we had started using his (oops!). The notebook is strong, sturdy, funky made with good quality paper.

4.0 out of 5 stars White Chalks, 7 Jan 2012
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wanted some chalk to go with a fun blackboard bought for my niece. The packaging is not really aimed at children, but it serves its purpose. This seemed reasonably priced, although it turned out to be a shame I was not purchasing more from this company as the P+P cost more than the chalks once I had paid (this was not clear at the Amazon check out beforehand as I was buying several other products at that time).

This review is from: 10 Ivory Dinner Candles
Lovely shoft shade of ivory. Used them on Christmas Day at the dinner table burning for about 3 hours - only a quarter of the length used up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Incredible Stuff!, 24 Aug 2011
My daughter bought herself this product because she has begun to find herself getting sweaty hands. Nothing serious - just enough for it to embarass her to shake hands with someone.

She was completely astounded with how well it worked, INSTANTANEOUSLY! She has been using Driclor on her hands every evening for less than a week and her hands are completely dry (though not too dry). Neither of us can believe it. She didn't even feel the stinging or itching that some other people have commented on.

I thought it was more than worth sharing and reccomending this product to anyone with excess perspiration - it really is the most effective over the counter treatment I have ever purchase.

Amazing.

Bought for a 11 year old boy's birthday present who has recently got into cricket. Lots of action photos and hot tips. Good value for money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dry Sack, 23 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Purchased for my daughter to use on a DofE weekend, this sack was too small to hold a single, light sleeping bag (the reason for purchase). However, she used it to store clothing and it helped reduce the 'bulk'. If you need to buy one for a sleeping bag, then go for a larger size. Product arrived quickly though - thank you.

After doing a lot of surfing for a quality, well-priced nightshirt for my husband (who won't wear PJs) - this nightshirt scored full marks! Good value for money and well-made. Product arrived quickly too - thank you.

Handpainted pictures on the blocks look rustic rather than the slick and perfect pictures you get on most toys these days. However, viewed through a child's eyes, they are colourful and jolly.

Bought for my nephew's first birthday, 4 blocks is a manageable starting point for 'construction' which he is happily using this toy to do!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best family game we have found for YEARS!, 28 Aug 2007
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Quoridor Game (Toy)
We bought this game in France this summer on a rainy afternoon, after playing it once in the toy shop. It is VERY addictive, and no two games are the same. Our seven year old and twelve year old can play it, but it is equally challenging for the grown-ups too! Two or four players can play, and the game enters a new dimention playing with four. I am just about to order one for my father-in-law's birthday present (who is in his sixties), and will order one for my brother in Australia next month for his birthday - although this is not just a game for the men! An added attraction is each game doesn't last too long - between 10 and 20 minutes, so family members can take it in turns, or it can be played when there are a few minutes to spare!
