Novelty 6 Rules To Success Arnold Schwarzenegger Gift Slogan Mug SK140
Novelty 6 Rules To Success Arnold Schwarzenegger Gift Slogan Mug SK140
Offered by Brandymum
Price: £7.95

4.0 out of 5 stars 6 Rules to Success Mug, 11 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I ordered two of these recently from Quirky Printz and I have to say overall the quality is pretty good. One of the mugs had a slight chip on the bottom edge, but it wasn’t too unsightly or caused it to leak at all. The printing is legible and while I’ve not had them for any length of time, it looks like it will be durable (I will update this down the line if this isn’t the case). The customer service from Quirky Printz was very good and they replied to an initial email query very quickly. My only criticism is that these are slightly over-priced for what they are and it may be worth shopping around or looking to see if you could get these made up yourself with another company. I needed mine as a gift so took the plunge and ordered them here. A great motivational gift, based on the now legendary 6 Rules of Success speech from Schwarzenegger and if you want a nice gift, based on this speech, then this is a good place to go.

Battat Take-Apart Airplane with Battery-Powered Drill
Battat Take-Apart Airplane with Battery-Powered Drill

4.0 out of 5 stars Battat Airplane., 1 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This Battat Airpane is a well made and enjoyable toy for those budding aviation engineers in your life. This is well constructed, solid and nice and vibrant to encourage play. The tool heads change over easily and it all screws together well and feels secure and tight as you play. If anything it tightens things up a little too well and the drill struggled to unscrew things sometimes, but with a little adult supervision things were quickly back under way again. The instructions weren't that great, but it is pretty self explanatory and once kids get used to using the pieces they know what they are doing. All in all this is a very enjoyable toy for those curious and inventive young souls.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rexel notebook, 16 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This notebook is a great design for what is essentially a simple product. It has a ringed spine which makes it easy to turn the pages and the edges are perforated in case you want to tear any pages out. There are clear page dividers and two plastic inserts where you can put CD’s or other additional notes. There is also a pen holder. There isn’t too much you can say about a pad, but the paper quality is great and the dividers are a nice touch. These would be ideal for taking notes in class or a meeting and at A5 size, not too cumbersome to carry about either. This is maybe a little pricey compared to other simple A5 pads, but the extra design features make it an attractive option.

Beco Things Eco-Friendly Medium Beco Ball - Blue - 6.5 cm
Beco Things Eco-Friendly Medium Beco Ball - Blue - 6.5 cm
Price: £4.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Beco Ball, 14 May 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This ball is a tough little rubber toy that should stand up to some serious chewing and play with your beloved pet. Its looks are deceiveing as it looks quite flimsy, but the rubber is reasonably thick (considering it is hollow inside for treats), not like a Kong, but still able to stand up to some serious chewing. The slightly bumpy surface means it doesn't roll straight, but at least your dog is always second guessing what direction it will bounce in! This says that is it is vanilla scented, but it is not discernable and smells like any other rubber ball we have bought. The 'whistle' isn't too obvious either and is basically the sound of air rushing over the hole you put treats through when you throw it. All in all this is a non-toxic and fun treat for your pet play times.


Fruit of the Loom Heavy Cotton T-Shirt - Red Medium
Fruit of the Loom Heavy Cotton T-Shirt - Red Medium
Offered by Activewear_Clothing_Online
Price: £2.03

5.0 out of 5 stars Fruit of the Loom T-Shirt, 13 April 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This T-Shirt is very good value for money. For less than three pounds (at the time of writing) you get a shirt with nice thick cotton, that is well stitched and which has rich colours. Mine didn’t fade or shrink in the wash and I went by other advice here and went for the size above mine which fitted perfectly (I border small and medium sizes and the Medium size was a perfect fit). If you want a shirt for working out, or just a no frills, non branded shirt for day-to-day wear then this is perfect. Can’t really go wrong with Fruit of the Loom clothing to be honest.

Polti Vaporetto Handy Pure Steam Cleaner, 3.5 Bar
Polti Vaporetto Handy Pure Steam Cleaner, 3.5 Bar
Price: £120.77

5.0 out of 5 stars Polti Steam Cleaner, 9 April 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This Polti steam cleaner is a compact but efficient little unit that can be used for various applications around the house.

I have to say from the start the instruction aren’t very good and it takes some figuring out putting this together. Nothing that is insurmountable, but other products come with clearer and more comprehensive instructions.

This comes with so many attachments and nozzles that I was surprised and really impressed. These are all housed neatly in a unit that fits on the bottom of the cleaner too so they are always to hand and stored neatly away.

I used this on an old stain from where our cat had been sick on the floor and with a little perseverance it lifted it out. This is impressive considering the stain had been there a while and other carpet cleaners hadn’t worked up until now.

We also used this on the hob and whilst it wasn’t very dirty to begin with, it brought it up nicely and you get the feeling the steam is a more hygienic and less corrosive than some chemicals you can buy.

We haven’t tried this for everything it claims it can be used for yet, but for the applications we have tried I can say I am very impressed and hope to try it our on the grout and other stubborn stain around the house.

Well worth a look.

The First World War: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions)
The First World War: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions)
by Michael Howard
Edition: Paperback
Price: £4.99

4.0 out of 5 stars The First World: A Very Short Introduction, 26 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a short and concise introduction to the First World War, as we have come to expect from these VSI books. This has clear maps to show how the war progressed and explores the reasons why it started and the key battles and events. It is a quick, but thoroughly fascinating read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dog Waste Bags, 8 Mar. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a simple product, but invaluable if you have a dog. The bags are strong enough not to rip when you‘re picking up the ‘leavings‘, but compact enough to hold a decent amount of bags on each reel. The plastic container looks like a large pill in shape and has a hole in the middle for the bags to pop through. You can clip this to your belt or dog lead and whilst the clip looks a little flimsy it hasn’t broken or anything, so looks are probably deceiving. That’s about it, 300 dog poop bags that don’t easily split and a carrying pod to transport them about in. If that’s what you’re after then go no further.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cole and Mason Pepper Grinder, 12 Dec. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This Cole and Mason pepper grinder is a solid piece of kitchenware and the usual high quality we have come to expect from this company over the years.

From the box this feel reassuringly sturdy and well made in your hand. My old electric grinder recently broke and you can tell the difference in build quality straight away.

You can turn the base of the unit to adjust the coarseness of pepper that this grinds, from a relatively fine grind, to more coarse, larger chunks. This is easy to do and gives immediate results.

The brushed steel casing looks sleek on the countertop and doesn’t show up fingerprints, therefore keeping the grinder looking presentable and clean.

This is as good on the table as next to the hob in the kitchen and if you want a quality electric grinder this is well worth considering. It may be slightly more expensive than other units out there, but the build quality means you won’t be replacing it anytime soon.

Roberts 'Play Duo' DAB/DAB+/FM RDS Stereo Radio with Built In Battery Charger - Grey
Roberts 'Play Duo' DAB/DAB+/FM RDS Stereo Radio with Built In Battery Charger - Grey
Price: £71.54

4.0 out of 5 stars Roberts 'Play Dup' DAB radio., 9 Dec. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This Roberts DAB radio is a great entry level digital radio, or one that is perfect for outdoor trips. It is small enough to be portable, but large enough to give a decent sound.

This has the ability to recharge batteries (which are not included ) and also runs off the mains if you wish to use it at home. It has a wonderfully tactile outer shell (which you can change as the mood suits you) and a decent length aerial.

This tuned in as soon as I turned it on and the signal was crisp and clear. You are able to select stations to preset and save. The sound was a little lacking when you get the volume up, but then this is never meant to be a all singing, all dancing DAB radio and the sound is perfectly acceptable for it’s size and what it is designed for.

This has been with me to work, as well as out with me when working in the garden and the batteries lasted a respectable amount of time both times.

I also have a Pure DAB radio, which is great for keeping indoors, but this is a good unit for moving about with, whether that be at a family picnic, or pottering around in the garage/shed.

Well worth considering.
