Kingfisher BF007FB Squirrel Guard Fat Ball Feeder
Kingfisher BF007FB Squirrel Guard Fat Ball Feeder
Offered by Garden Selections
Price: £6.49

5.0 out of 5 stars So far... No squirrels., 15 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was getting fed up with my fat balls being eaten by the doves and squirrels - that this has been the solution I was looking for. Easy to fill & seal, and not had a single squirrel attach after a few weeks. Bought the seed feeder at the same time, of similar design, and both are working a treat.

Allows the smaller birds to visit and feed in the garden more.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic, with a plastic twist..., 22 Oct. 2012
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Scrabble Board Game (Toy)
For the price, a bargain for a gaime that can educate, stimulate and be downright competitive. Bought for the family, and with an 8y-o keen to build words playing the game; also the scoring can help sharpening up maths, and learning about new words. Whether you play different 'house rules' for challenging or looking up words, it can certinly help broaden the mind.

The set is not up there with the older versions with the nice tiles and wooden tile holders, though is certainly a good set considering the price, and length of use the set will get.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok, but not the top trumps of old, 30 Sept. 2012

Has a number of facts about dog, which are based on size, weight and some arbitrary facts.

Nothing like the educational top trumps of the past with trains, ships etc.


Panasonic SD-2501 WXC Automatic Breadmaker, White
Panasonic SD-2501 WXC Automatic Breadmaker, White
Price: £114.99

5.0 out of 5 stars A Breadmaker Convert, 30 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In past years, seen people with breadmakers, and not really seen the attraction. Thought would take the plunge, and not looked back. In over 1 month, not bought any bread, and basically had a fresh loaf every other day. It just tastes great.
Recipes are included in the instructions pamphlet that comes with it, and stuck to them... Quite exciting to try the ones that are suggested, and also how slight deviations in the basic ingredients of the flour, yeast, butter, water and salt; can make a multitude of different breads.

Basic white, sandwich white, French style, etc. Brown, granary, spelt are all options - I have not used the dispenser yet, though breadmakers can provide bread, cake, pastries and jam. Made one bad batch, when forgot to put in the stirrer, otherwise, by using the timer, waking up in the mornings is a joy.

if you are unsure whether to buy one, look at the online instructions from the panasonic website to see how easy it is.

This Panasonic can do the business.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classy, Glassy and fits nicely in the corner, 11 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Scanned around anumber of sites for a true corner stand for a TV this one fitted the bill.

Arrived the nexct working day, and able to put together within 15mins - relies on 4 main bolts going through the legs, which attach to the standtop and to the feet. Suggest to remove jewellery when putting together as the posts can scratch slightly.

Neatly fits into a corner, and with the curved front looks modern. The clear glass gives the impression of more space. The cable-holes at the rear are just that - ie. no ability to hide cables.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid & Did the Job!, 10 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Double-walled is certainly best for storage and for re-use later. They were used for a house move, though unfortunately too large to get into the loft - so in retrospect would have got slightly smaller boxes (my error!) Remember to use strong tape.

5.0 out of 5 stars Creates Desk Space with a Modern Feel, 10 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Item purchased as a monitor riser, and also as a convenient 'desk storage area' for a Microsoft keyboard. My MS4000 keyboard just stows nicely underneath this monitor stand. Item was well packed, and arrived very quickly... looks great on the desk.
Acrylic is very thick and sturdy.. Love it!


3g Tube of Super Glue Pack Of 5
3g Tube of Super Glue Pack Of 5
Offered by nonstopbargain
Price: £1.20

5.0 out of 5 stars Bargain for a number of Strong Glue Tubes., 10 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are great, having multiple tubes thought would be an added bonus in case they seize up after repeat usage; though this is not the case.
On the 3 things I used the the glue on over a period in time, each have stuck rigidly.

An absolute bargain!

4.0 out of 5 stars Giving an interest in Geography is easy..., 10 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I always remember having a similar map (The Times) map on my wall when I was young, and used it to see where all the countries were in the world, and was always fascinated by it. 25 years on, an opportunity to give the same education and interest to my son.

Positives
- Big
- Laminated (just used the 'no more nails' glue to attach to wall)
- Flags of each country

Negatives
- Not your 'traditional' Mercator projection, this is a "van der Grinten", which seems to enlarge Africa and the Antartic, though this is minor

Came in a big tube, well packed, and saved not requiring to mount/frame it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classy, Glassy and heavy, 9 July 2012
Bought one of these to fit a 50inch Panasonic plasma since did not want to wall mount and also did not want it on the standard TV stand, and also to have PS3, sat boxes etc neatly enclosed - works perfectly!!

Some additional questions that I asked the manufacturer:
- This unit is 82cm tall - that is from the ground to the middle of the integrated bracket - and the bracket allow the TV to be mounted at different heights, and also to rotate when on the stand.
- The width of the shorter shelves is 71 cm. the full Inner dimension of the stand is 117cm.
- The free space to be used at right and left side has dimensions of 46cm(W), 50cm (D) and 21.5cm(H); so it allows space for an AV amp, for example.

Added bonus - manufacturer gives a 5year warranty.

Comes in a very large crate!, and very heavy.
