Lorus Time Teacher Watch Bright Pink RG265HX9
Lorus Time Teacher Watch Bright Pink RG265HX9

Price: £16.30

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for helping kids to learn to read the time, 16 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Learning to tell the time isn't as intuitive as we'd like, but this watch really helped my 7 yr old daughter. It's not rocket science - the more they wear it and use it to tell the time the quicker they pick it up

1.0 out of 5 stars A little extra thought into this and it could be a great product, 16 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
While this, for the most part, does the job for a decent price, there are a couple of major problems with it
- no battery indicator to know if your feeder will actually work or not - kinda useful if you don't want to starve your cat to death while you're away, so a pretty obvious design flaw for a cat feeder!
- whoever designed the rotation mechanism must be a moron or someone trying to save 10p per unit - it's so flimsy any half-brained, lazy cat could crack this open after getting a bit peckish. The frustrating thing is it would be so easily fixed - last time I checked cats didn't have opposing thumbs so the top lid just needs to sit inside a rim so the cat can't paw the lid and flip the whole thing open

I've engineered a few work arounds and I'm not sure there are many other reasonably priced alternatives on the market, so we still use it. Their office is literally 10min from my house so one day I may just drop in a revised design in to them!

This review is from: Cycleops Mag Trainer (Sports)
Great trainer, and good value for money. Spool at the back has 5 settings and is big enough so it doesn't get too hot and shred your back tyre

3.0 out of 5 stars Great stylish phone and fine to for those who don't use their land line much, 16 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great looking phone, but 3 stars as the speaker output is very quiet and despite the answer phone being set to 6 rings, it only takes 2 to kick in

First attempt to put on was a nightmare - I knew these are "stretch" belts but was so tight it was pulling the motor out of place. I even checked it was the right product! The "1860" refers to the length in mm so I had the right one. The trick is to warm the belt up - many suggest on a radiator but I wrapped it around a boiled kettle for 10min. Put the belt over the drum and re-connect the front of the dryer. Then put a piece of pipe through the slack in the belt and connect one end of the pipe over the motor spool. Rotate the drum, working the belt off the pipe and on to the motor - took 30 seconds once I'd warmed the belt up - there are some YouTube videos which show this nicely too

1.0 out of 5 stars Nice wood but terrible service, 2 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So disappointed with this purchase, don't get me wrong the bed seems fine (once I manage to assemble it), but the customer service is terrible. They were meant to deliver on a certain date. I'd emailed to find out when they'd be delivering it, am/pm etc, they responded by email on the day it was due to say it would be another 3 weeks. One day wasted, and could have easily have called as I'd left my number with them. They then give me the new date, but rather than sit around all day waiting for them I asked if could deliver in the am as I was traveling abroad that afternoon. No response so emailed again to receive a very kurt response of the morning, but again no number or offer to call when they'd be arriving.

When it did get here the guy dropped the first bits in the bedroom then went off to get the rest of the bed. He'd been gone a while but as I was busy packing I thought he was sorting stuff out in the van. After some time I went out and he'd dumped the rest of the bits in the hallway of a block of flats and had left the front door open. Thinking he must be coming back I waited a bit longer, then went out to see if I could find him but he was nowhere to be found - it was now down to me to bring the bed into my flat and assemble it (hoping it's all there). The idiot couldn't even be bothered to say I'm leaving it in the hallway. So annoyed, if I didn't need the bed I'd be claiming a refund off Amazon and telling them to come pick it up (from the hallway where they left it)!

The bed seems ok, haven't got it all assembled yet so I'll be doing this before my flight - hopefully he hasn't forgotten anything! My strong advice is to stay clear of these cowboys, there are plenty of business out there who actually care, appreciate and value their customers

Outstanding results every time with this machine (the brioche and pizza doughs are particularly good). If your bread doesn't seem to rise properly make sure you are putting the dried yeast in first and try adding 10-20ml more liquid as some flour types require the extra liquid.

This watch makes an excellent gift, it's sightly smaller than I expected at 25mm diameter but looks great and comes with the fob chain as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Testimonial, 31 May 2009
For several years I have been suffering from an incapacitating type of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) leading to insomnia, palpitations and stress induced cold sweats at night. On the advice of a friend I purchased the Virtually Perfect 'Reduce Stress and Anxiety' CD and have now used it on several occasions. Since starting the programme I have noticed a tangible difference in my ability to relax and deal with stressful situations at work and, most importantly, it has afforded me the ability to gain a restful sleep.

Stuart MacCormack is a talented coach; do not be put off by any concerns you might have about simply listening to a CD, his style of delivery is exceptional and warm allowing you to believe that he is in the room and the session is very real. I was thoroughly impressed with the quality of the coaching on the CD and have made significant progress in conquering my anxiety and PTSD.
