1.0 out of 5 stars Disney Profiteering, 28 Sep 2013
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Interesting that these discs offer power ups etc for a fee whereas competing games (Activision's Skylanders for example) offer free increases in power/ability etc if you play the game. These are pocket money discs clearly aimed at children's savings - as with Lego Mini Figures, they come in 'blind' bags so there is always a chance of duplication. Unlike Lego figures, you cannot feel through the bag to have a reasonable guess at what you may be getting. My 9 year old has bought three packs and has duplicates of one disc three times .... This is so clearly a typical Disney attempt to wring as much money out of the franchise as they possibly can. The game is great but these additions are a shoddy attempt to exploit young children - Disney, you should be ashamed !!

= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Bought this at 24 in CostCo (sorry Amazon, 36 a little over-priced). Great starter kit for the teenage beginner - easy to use 3 channel rc and robust parts. Standard USB charger but heavy on the rc batteries (may be better to invest in rechargeable batteries.

This review is from: High Above London (Paperback)
Loved this book by Jason Hawkes - a little concerned that some of the photos appeared to have been re-cycled from other Hawkes publications (that may just be me doing Jason a dis-service). Photographic quality outstanding, book quality good. Colour reproduction excellent. One for the coffee table.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it claims !, 8 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Stylish and discrete piece of kit to complement any netbook - operates via two USB ports (for power) which could impact on your netbook if they are on opposite sides of the device (in which case, you will need to buy an extension cable). Supplied Nero software average. Auto detected on installation. Seems to work well albeit noisily. For the cost (21), good value.

Bought this for my 11 year old boy at his behest - trashy, pappy pop with little or no musical virtue - Im not getting that old but this makes me feel ancient ! Avoid Cher Lloyd if you like music

Perfect resource for anyone who models Airfix, Tamiya or Revell kits - good range of tanks and SPGs and great colour schemes detailed in depth. Found it very useful when traveling round IWM Duxford !

This is a slightly more complex model than the basic Airfix starter kits but is still fairly easy for my 8 year old to cope with. Unusual aircraft to play with for a change. Enjoyed this one.....

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Quality, 19 Dec 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Excellent piece of kit for novice XBox 360 users - bought for 11 year old with Forza 3 and Dirt racing games - significantly improves control and is much more fun than a wireless controller. Downside is the short usb cable connecting unit to rear of XBox - means you have to sit about 4 feet away from screen - longer cable would have gained extra star !
