3.0 out of 5 stars Doubtful value for money, 23 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was rather disappointed with what this kit contained, which view was also shared by the young recipient. It basically consisted of a simple paper strip rolling device with winding handle; support handle; tiny quantity of glue with spreader and two sheets of coloured/patterned paper to cut up. All of this could have been put into a box one third of the size it was actually packed in so is very much packed to deceive. As for value for money, I would be very surprised if the production cost of this entire item, including packaging, came to more than 75p. It thus does not represent good value for money. The only reason I have not given a lower score is that I am not aware of another device that would allow little fingers to roll paper so tightly so that this kit benefits from lack of comparable competition.


Salter Nutritional Scale

4.0 out of 5 stars Smart but sometimes fiddly., 27 Oct. 2014
Neat and stylish as well as allowing you to keep an eye on calories etc. There are are couple of irritations however. Firstly, it is a major pain to search throught the list of codes to identify and input what you are actually weighing; we have found it easier to copy out on to a card the things we use most frequently. Secondly, whilst the small 'footprint' of the scales might be an advantage on a crowded bench it does mean that unless using a transparent bowl the display screen is obscured unless using a very small container. A pan, for example, usually means that the display cannot be seen which rather defeats the purpose.

As with others in the WOW range this toy is robust as well as attractive. All have proved popular with grandchildren from the age of 1 upwards. This toy is fairly small but size has not proved to be an issue with the users!


Flowers of Europe: A Field Guide
Flowers of Europe: A Field Guide
by Oleg Polunin
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Helpful bu not perfect, 27 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not the most recent book on the subject but it contains detail and information about a huge number of alpine plants which do not receive mention in more popular volumes. A major attraction is the huge number of photographs of plants (almost 2,000) at the back of the book which have helped identify many observed species. Unfortunately, the text and layout of the book give much less assistance in identification unless you have a rough idea of the species in the first place. Whilst good for differentiating between variants in a particular type of plant information on distribution, habitat is limited or almost non-existent.

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect laptop bag, 27 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been delighted with this purchase. Firstly, it is such a perfect fit for my HP laptop it could have been designed specifically for it. Secondly, with its firm outer frame and strong fabric cover I feel confident that my computer will be protected from all everyday knocks and impacts. The zipped compartments give ample room for carrying cables, mouse, card reader, notebook/paper and writing materials. As far as I can see the bag is well made and robust enough to last several years. I can thoroughly recommend it to any prospective buyer.

Pencils great but the tin lid falls off leaving a sharp edge which is a concern as this was bought for a young child.

Transcend TS16GCF133 16GB CompactFlash Memory Card
Price: £20.12

4.0 out of 5 stars Just one quibble, 22 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having used a Transcend 8GB flash card in my digital camera for the last two years I decided to double the capacity by buying this card. It has worked in the camera without problem but I have experienced problems in downloading photos to my computer. The computer frequently does not detect any photos producing a message claiming (incorrectly) that the card has not been formatted. This could well be a computing problem rather than a fault with the card but it's annoying and costs the card a star.
