5.0 out of 5 stars Bought by mistake., 6 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Misread the batteries in my digital watch so these did not fit but they arrived promptly.
Not sure how long they will keep charged in the package but maybe they will fit something later.
This should be a warning to double check the batteries that you require..

3.0 out of 5 stars A little confusing ??., 6 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It took a while to get into the story and I did find it confusing at first.
After the first book it became clearer and I did quite enjoy it.
Not the easiest story to grasp but worth a read but not high on my list of reads

5.0 out of 5 stars The birds have taken to it., 6 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought to put sunflower hearts in for the birds in my garden.
Filled it up and after a couple of days the birds were constantly on it.
I actually think it's better than the tube shaped ones as it gives
more stability to the birds whilst they are feeding.
Not able to say how long it will last but seem well made.

4.0 out of 5 stars Going into my second childhood., 6 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Originally purchased a wooden aeroplane from a visit with the grandchildren to the Deep in Hull.
Decided that making the animals was very therapeutic.
So ordered the Owl first which is wonderful.
A little disappointed with the Squirrel not that it wasn't enjoyable to make but
it was smaller than the Owl about half the size (the reason for knocking a star off).
Still find them good to make, this one was a lot easier than the Owl and with a little help
manageable by a 7 year old I think.
Parts fit well and it looks good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good to do., 19 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I originally bought a wooden kit of a aeroplane and made it up one afternoon for fun.
Whilst looking for toy for the Grandchildren at Christmas came across this and lots of other animals.
Set to and made this up over a couple of days.
It fit together very well and all but a couple of pieces stay in place.
I would say this is not suitable for those under 10 on there own unless they are very adept at this sort of stuff.
Other wise with a adult helping it is possible for younger children to do.
I would suggest very rewarding and enjoyable.

Just for info I am 67 years old and I enjoyed making it.
I will be purchasing some of the other animals.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not perfect, 19 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this because of the wet dismal weather making the foot paths were I walk my dog
quagmires on returning home boots are covered in mud.
The one I had previously bought was a wire frame with brushes wrapped round it.
The brushes soon moved and broke and it became useless.
This one is far more substantial and the brushes are stiff and appear to be strong.
They do clean the boots quite well but I have taken one star off because the side brushes
are not high enough to clean the side of the boots above about 5 mm or so
without me leaning my foot over to reach higher.
All in all worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Strike while the irons hot., 18 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchase around 30 a month on bird food and on one of the forums I am a member of
a member spotted this discount price Sunflower hearts and posted it on line.
I am sure other members also purchased them.
I had no complaints about the quality and delivery of them and certainly no negative feedback from any of the birds.
Sorry about the pun

5.0 out of 5 stars Second purchase of these batteries., 17 Feb 2014

All the research I did regarding re-chargeable batteries pointed towards these.
Arrived charged and have worked very well in every situation I have used them in.
Camera,s, Grandchildren's toys and even lego stuff we have built.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I thought it would be., 17 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Should have read more reviews before purchasing this book. Started off to my liking regarding the sudden forces unleashed on the Earth and the destruction that followed.
It then follows a couple of groups as they try to get to safety.
Later in the book the survivors come across what can only be described as Zombies, that was the point I started to realise I had made a mistake in buying both books at the same time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed this follow up to Helix, 17 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Helix Wars (Kindle Edition)
So after reading the first book in this series I have now finished the second book.
Really enjoyed the story although it’s not my usual sort of Sci-Fi.
I don’t normally go for fighting type stories but this was very good.
I started to care for the main characters and came to know how they think
and what they believed in.
Don’t want to spoil the first book but suffice to say this story is some time after
the humans have become established on the new world and found a place in the system.
Well worth a read.
