3.0 out of 5 stars Why use explicit lyrics???, 19 Mar 2011
This review is from: Who You Are (Audio CD)
I know I'm going to sound like an old fogey but...I was going to buy this album for my 12yr old daughter. Jessie J was on Blue Peter - a children's show, performing Price Tag. "Look at me kids, buy my records, I'm really cool"

I wish these pop acts would realise that a big chunk of their audience are 'teeny boppers'. There is no reason to include explicit versions of their songs, the songs became hits without the swearing (Cee Lo Green take note) and with such a large following of young children surely it is better to remove these lyrics altogether? Like it or not Jessie j, (Katy Perry on Sesame Street) etc etc should have a responsibility as role models to their younger fans. Either that or keep them off children's telly!

Right, I'm off to buy her a JLS album...

3.0 out of 5 stars Could be better, 28 Feb 2010
It's a good toy but could be much better. It's even harder to pick things up than the real thing! The grabber is too light to successfully grab an item so as the claw closes it pushes itself away instead of closing over it. It is VERY difficult to actually grab anything although it is satisfying when it eventually works!

Bought for a six year old boy who loves bashing out the beats and recording his voice into it - great fun!

Simple design that works - there are better one's out there but not bad for the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great quality Skin, 18 Dec 2009
Initially I though a bit pricey for a couple of stickers but - You gets what you pays for - the skins are made from durable quality plastic and fit perfectly, the DSi is totally transformed and my daughter loves it - excellent product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great film - great bargain!, 16 Nov 2009
This is a great film with some great songs. I first saw the movie in the 80's but had forgotten all about it until recently when I took my 11 year old daughter to see the stage show (I prefer the movie ending). This DVD is excellent value with some great extras - well recommended!!

PS Ellen Greene is gorgeous!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 7 April 2009
This review is from: Isle Of View (CD + DVD) (Audio CD)
Absolutley superb performance from Chrissie Hynde and her band. This is a live and unplugged show from 1995 featuring classic versions of hits such as 'Back on the Chain Gang and 'Brass in Pocket'. Chrissie's voice is (and still is) just perfect in expressing emotion, from delicate soft tones to full on rock queen. Her cover of Radiohead's 'Creep' will send shivers up your spine!

I have recently rediscovered this band and this CD/DVD combo is excellent value and a great showcase for Chrissie and a great way to get to know her again! She is so underrated - their latest album 'Break up the Concrete' is packed with future Pretenders classics - go buy it!

= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:3.0 out of 5 stars 
Plug it in, charge it up and away you go! Great fun, tricky to control which is part of the charm of flying it! My daughter loves it, the cat loves it and that's good enough for me! What a great price as well! The build is sturdy and it looks like a dragonfly once airborn. One thing to note is that you must use fully charged batteries in the charging unit as weaker ones will not charge the helicopter for the required time.
