5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing voices!, 25 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
All stories are thrilling, funny and you just have to listen to the end of ach one of them. I bought it for school runs which takes just over 10 min; and we would be sitting in a car in front of the school, listening and waiting what happens next (age:7,5,2). My favourite is T-Rex! One hungry, grumpy, stomping feet T-Rex and ever so chilled out Hadrosaur. Would recommend, children still happy to listen to the stories over again. I love Paul Chambers' way of changing the voice, it's amazing! Very talented!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great fun!, 20 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stained Glass (Toy)
Great to try something new with the children; tricky for my 5 and 7 year olds to use the black outline paint; but they really enjoyed painting and decorating the glass bottles. Once all finished, would be a lovely end-of-school-year presents for teachers, we thought...
The paint brush is of no use at all, came a bit bended at the end (we enjoy painting and are used to use decent paint brushes).

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad batch?, 4 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Used just first from batteries in the pack - it lasted one week and then it started leaking - damaging the hearing aid. As per use-by date, there had plenty of expected life time (more than 12 months). Won't be using the rest.

3.0 out of 5 stars Colours may vary, 14 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As written in description, colours may vary. I've ordered 2 lights to go into 1 long room, and there are quite different. The is barely red on the pair I have, abundance of brown on one and a lot of very dark brown on another one. The holders of the shades are also different - length, endings, screws. Fortunately, in our room, the lights will not be very close, so the differences are not obvious. They do look nice, but if they were more similar to the picture, it would have been better.

4.0 out of 5 stars Designs may vary, 13 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As it says in the product description, designs may vary, so there is no guarantee to receive exactly the product as shown on the picture.
Version I received has TIGER [...]label. As it comes without instructions, I now have some spare parts ;) The parts I've recognised created reasonable stabiliser wheel set; were easily fitted and few test drives were completed successfully. I haven't identified any parts that could be fitted on top of the metal holders to protect from injuries to someone falling on the stabilisers (this being universal fit, the parts are quite long). I hope they will serve fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extra mile, 9 Jan 2012
I was nicely surprised. The sound is superb (using it with Monitor Audio BX2), the range of supported formats is larger than it says on the spec. It supports wma, mp3, flac and ogg from usb drive and from dlna servers (tested with win7 & mediatomb). The selection of network connectivity is large (online music serves require subscription, e.g. last.fm does not work with free account), you can tune wide selection of FM/AM/DAB radio station (based on reception).
Even the CD reader works perfectly and utterly quiet with my ancient selection of CDs.

Note that this variety impacts start-up performance - e.g. it might take few tens of seconds to have 32GB USB drive available (with max. 100 entries at the drive root level).

ID3 v2.3 & 2.4 with utf8/16 seem to be supported, however, multibyte unicode characters are not displayed correctly, only dots serve as placeholder (so, if you have international collection write to marantz support to have it fixed). I have also managed to block it for a nice portion of an hour by using exFAT USB drive - this was not properly recognised and the unit tried to read the disc for ever.

Nice piece of kit, I'm glad to have it.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Devil is in the details, 3 Jan 2012
= Durability:2.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:3.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Pros: Nice long track, stylish cars, easy handling. Very fast - it is almost not usable for competitive racing without the lap counter.

Cons: Although the cars are classed as "durable", they started falling apart after one day of racing (on carpet) - mirrors, lights, ornamental screws, grilles - all broken. Does not affect the racing but I've expected them to last longer. One of the handlers is "leaking" electric power, so car wont stop properly even if the handler is not touched (not a problem unless you are trying to prevent a collision). Also the cars are quite different, so to make any race even, both lines and cars have to be rotated.

Overall nice set, but lacking in details.

3.0 out of 5 stars Check on arrival, 30 Sep 2011
I've bought 3 of these - they are good size and nice to wear. One of them was not stitched properly and I have only found out when wearing it, so check your on arrival.

1.0 out of 5 stars Good value but..., 28 Sep 2011
= Durability:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Note that the height of this version of LR44 is slightly less than usual LR44 button cells. I know that these are marked as "alkaline cell" batteries, but I've expected the same size LR44 for "button cell" as well as for "alkaline cell". This was tested on several gadgets. Fortunately, I've had few other gadgets that use these cells side-by-side, where the height was of little importance so I was able to use most of the pack.

4.0 out of 5 stars Served well for one year, 22 Jan 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've bought these a year ago. They were easy to replace & worked quite well. They are now ready to be replaced - which is slightly surprising - the original wipers served for longer.
