Smurfs Holiday Celebration [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]

Dvd ~ Artist Not Provided
Offered by supermart_usa
Price: 5.50

1.0 out of 5 stars get a better value with the UK version, 4 May 2014
I live on the other side of the pond - bought the Region 1 version. As described, it only two features two holiday episodes.

Then I found the UK version with (4) Smurf Holiday episodes here at Amazon.UK, which includes Mr Nick's Sack and Baby's First Christmas.

The UK version gives more bang for the buck. US version is OK in terms of quality, etc., but when you find a better set (more episodes, etc.), why settle for less?


Linzer Cookie Cutter 5 cm with Pusher Shamrock-Shaped

3.0 out of 5 stars nice product - but baker needs two (2) cutters, 24 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very unique shape. It isn't available in the US.

The Pro's: unique holiday shape ideal for St Patrick's Day
The Con's: a baker needs two if trying to make sandwich cookies.

Why two?

Every cookie will have a center hole, unless the removal spring-loaded plunger with center hole is removed. To do so, the baker must remove the outer 4-leaf clover pattern, remove the plunger, then put the outer 4-leaf clover back into the ring.

You'll spend a few good minutes trying to do so without damaging the shape.

So buy two and you can have one cutter with center hole and one without.

I suggest the same with any Kaiser Linzer cookie cutter (Ausstecher). Extremely difficult to re-assemble so do it once and be done with it - you're all set for sandwich cookies; plain cookies without hole or cookie with hole.

3.0 out of 5 stars DVD condition, playback, general satisfaction, 5 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I received this complete set and upon opening the package was surpised to see several DVDs loose, as in not in their slots.

I have played two full seasons already without any playback problems. However, I am not putting them back into the original packing. FOr the moment, I am storing them on a spindle until I can get proper DVD cases to store the items.

Overall, I am happy. This might change as I play back and possibly encounter playback errors with the remaining 5 seasons.

Consider purchasing an alternate method of storing these DVDs once you buy / open the box set. Nearly 3 out of 7 discs for each season were loose and could fall out of the cardboard sleeves. Don't even considering re-inserting them into their slots, if you can manage so.

Some paper slots tore open a bit as I tried to widen them to insert the DVD. Maybe that's why they were loose in the first place. Packer couldn't get the DVD into the slot without using excessive force or scratching the media.

Next go around I'll buy individual seasons in proper DVD cases.
