BT Additional Camera for BT Digital Video Baby Monitor 1000
BT Additional Camera for BT Digital Video Baby Monitor 1000
Price: £40.00

2.0 out of 5 stars Broken two months after purchase, 3 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This camera seems a step back from the monitor I previously owned, the BT150. The lullabies are only accessible from the camera, so once you've started them, you can't stop it without reentering baby's room. You also can't control the angle of the camera from the Parent Unit, which to me seems a good option for a video monitor. Our cameras always seem to pick up interference noises, so the warning is almost constantly flashing that there is a noise on camera 1/2/3, and once you've checked, there's nothing at all beyond a bit of white noise, so I've had to turn off the alert feature so it doesn't constantly disturb me.

The quality is quite acceptable in daylight, but not that impressive in night vision, but that seems typical of cameras within this price range I suppose, you just expect a bit better from a company like BT.

After less than two months, one of my cameras has packed up. Thank goodness it's only the playroom, and not one of the bedrooms!

3.0 out of 5 stars Misleading but ultimately pleasing, 22 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My daughters (2 & 3) were delighted with the new fairy and these extra bricks to go with the Lil Princess table and castle they already own. Probably 1/3 of these bricks are sparkling, the rest just coordinate with the rest of the Lil Princess series. We didn't recieve any white bricks, so I can only assume this was a glitch in production, and I'd be returning the product if that had been the case!

There are a nice number and variety of bricks, and the carry bag is useful, although I managed to fit the contents in the table with the existing collection, which is much more useful!

A decent enough product. I think Megabloks are a bit rubbish, but my children seem to like them.

.. but the magnets are too tiny and don't really give enough hold. Still, you get what you pay for!

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't wear as well as hoped, 18 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Mine have lasted about three months, the soles get grubby and even on a mild wash the decorative sole stitching came loose. I couldn't resist another pair though. If they were machine washable, they'd be more fabulous, but they're cosy and comfortable, and look gorgeous.

I was trying to avoid anything twee-looking or breakable, and came across this. It's smart, functional, cleans easily, and doesn't smash! Lovely :)

1.0 out of 5 stars Nothing like as good as the branded item, 17 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
They don't rotate as fast as the branded original, and slow down considerably when any pressure is applied. I'm throwing them away and buying the proper ones, don't waste your money.

4.0 out of 5 stars A bit fiddly for heavy handed husbands, 17 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can use it adequately, but it does require a gentle touch and a specific directional pull to avoid the rolls rolling off their base position. Looks nice, does the job OK, but a lot of room for design improvements, so overpriced for what you get.

2.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish, 7 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We bought the talking Sofia castle for Xmas, to go with this set. Prince James and Queen Miranda have the exact same sounds - a brief trumpet fanfare - and King Roland mistakenly has the same voice and sentences as Princess Sofia. I.e he girlishly asks if you want to go upstairs and play with his toy castle!!!

Nice idea, poorly executed, rubbish quality, not worth the money whatsoever to the purchasing adult, but for as long as it lasts my 3yr old enjoys playing with it,

1.0 out of 5 stars Buyer beware, 5 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm not sure what I expected for the price in terms of fabric, and as other reviewers have mentioned it's very cheap and shiny, though a good thickness but the skirt I received was so appallingly made I've sent it back for a refund. I am pretty handy with a sewing machine, and the tension on the thread sewing the bottom hem was wrong, so that the fabric was all twisted and pulled. A child's school project would have been manufactured with more attention and care for detail and production,

Don't waste your money and time,
