Broadway B1 Digital Piano - Dark Rosewood
Broadway B1 Digital Piano - Dark Rosewood
Price: £612.46

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully weighted piano, 4 Jun. 2016
Beautifully weighted piano. Good sound. Simple recording of single piece that you can play back. Haven't tried anything more complicated than this as just treating it like a normal piano that never goes out of tune and you can put headphones in to!
Ed: Started to use a few more features - the metronome is pretty much useless as you are forced to give it a time signature and the lack of digital display means you have no idea how fast or slow it is.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice looking & easy to use. Ridiculous sounds/tunes!, 16 Mar. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pros: Definitely works and incredibly easy to set up. Both the receiver and the doorbell are very smart looking. Volume should be plenty in most normal size houses.

Cons: Oh my goodness, there's literally only 1 of the 52 doorbell sounds that isn't completely ridiculous! If my son hadn't drawn all over the box I would definitely be sending it back. As it is, I'm going to have to accept the single sound (the default I believe) that isn't too awful.

Spend the extra money. Nothing touches a good quality tempered glass screen cover. No bubbles, amazing touch feel and takes a battering.

Temperamental charging of my Oneplus at best. Works as a cable (sometimes) but I have no idea what the throughput is... not very much. Only occasionally actually works as a powerbank. And pretty much impossible to pull the ends out of the case without very strong nails or a knife/screwdriver. Great idea - very poorly executed unfortunately.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sure - they've gotten rid of the forsooths and the verilys. Shame about the incest and rape., 21 Jun. 2015
I bought this bible for my 8-year-old son who 'want[s] to know about the life of Jesus and like[s] the numbers.' I liked that it's got a little introduction and that there are some friendly pictures.

However, and perhaps this is naive of me, the Bible, especially the Old Testament in its entirety is *not* appropriate reading for a child in my opinion. Driving the kids to school one morning, I listened in increasing horror as my son read out the following passage aloud:

Genesis 19:31 - "One day the older daughter said to the younger, 'Our father is old. Everywhere on the earth women and men marry. But there are no men around here fur us to marry. Let's get our father drunk. Then we can have sexual relations with him." It goes on to explain how they got him drunk and had sex with him and that he didn't remember. They got pregnant and produced children who would become two races on earth.

Now, maybe I'm an over-protective mum but I'm not a big fan of my son reading about getting people so drunk that you can have sex with them so they don't remember especially when that person is your dad. Drunkeness, incest and rape weren't things I was planning on covering with my son just yet.

Ed: My new 'favourite' passage is Deuteronomy 22:13-29 where they explain all the ways a woman who is raped should be killed for being raped and helpfully, because it's a book for the kiddies after all, they convert '50 shekels of silver' into 'about two third of a kilogram of silver'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value for money and works well even if it's not much of a looker!, 20 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a perfectly decent Bluetooth transmitter. It's certainly comparable to ones I've used before. This means that I do have to tweak the broadcasting frequency when doing long motorway journeys because it gets interference from other externally transmitted stations. I'm not sure if it could be more powerful as I assume that this would cause problems for other road users (!?) and it may also be an issue with my car's poor quality radio. It's certainly reliable (always broadcasts, always connects to my phone automatically) and good value for money.

The lost star is because:
- it's not exactly good looking!
- the buttons are a bit fiddly to use and not amazingly intuitive.

Wool (Wool Trilogy)
Wool (Wool Trilogy)
by Hugh Howey
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.59

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it!, 16 Jun. 2013
This review is from: Wool (Wool Trilogy) (Paperback)
Loved it... think my husband loved it less because I've been neglecting the rest of my life while I finished it. Heheh.

A great concept, a real page-turner. Can see why it's been likened to "The Hunger Games" which I also enjoyed... but this is better! Go read!

(And check out his website as well. *So* much right with it - from the link to allow you to pay for the book retrospectively if you managed to obtain a... dodgy copy... to the fan-stuff that he's got on there... to the whole way he's showing that good writing will find a way to make it out in this world of self-publishing.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome!, 6 Feb. 2013
An excellent idea well done. This isn't going to be the magic panacea for all your kiddie-sleep problems but it *does* allow you to be consistent with your children before they can tell the time by reading it. Such an excellent item for any parent.
