5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to put in place, good protection, 19 Mar 2014

These arrived promptly with easy-to-follow instructions for a fairly quick and painless placement without bubbles. A very good fit for the Samsung Galaxy Note II at a pretty good price.


The Bravest Ever Bear
The Bravest Ever Bear
by Allan Ahlberg
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly funny and sweet, 19 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Bravest Ever Bear (Paperback)
This is a book in disguise... it starts like a straightforward story, but it soon becomes clear that the bear in question doesn't like the way it's being told, so it keeps getting stopped and started again. I love it and so do the children I have given it to. It's a favorite of mine and I think most of the children in my life will end up owning a copy (from me). Gets lots of chuckles!

3.0 out of 5 stars Difficult to move to change angles, could be dangerous, 19 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good idea and I'll probably use it, although it's a bit scary how hard it is to change angles: it requires a fair bit of force and there is a danger you could jam your fingers as you are holding the "bar" whilst trying to move the "ruler" section. Definitely not recommended for children to use.


Creativity For Kids Create Your Own Pop Up Books
Creativity For Kids Create Your Own Pop Up Books
Price: £14.29

3.0 out of 5 stars Good idea, materials flimsier than expected, 19 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a fantastic idea, especially for creative kids interested in making books, but as a product I would rate it as just okay because the quality of the materials are flimsier and cheaper than I would have hoped for. Given the price I suppose it is fair enough. A good starting point and quite unusual, so I hope it will be received with some enthusiasm as it's a gift for a child in my life!

1.0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for - cheap and flimsy, 8 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These seemed like a good deal but they are very flimsy and the wire pops out very easily. With most needle threaders of this type the wire seemed to be attached twice on each side, but these are only superficially attached once on each side, and the slightest "tug" pulls the wire out. I was looking for a pack of needle threaders (more than a few) and this looked like a good deal, but I would not recommend these. The metal is also more soft and thin than usual (which is not often that strong anyway). Okay if you only want to use it once or twice to thread a needle before needing a new one!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely pictures and descriptions, 1 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love visiting the British Museums collections and was very pleased to see and purchase this book. The images are lovely and the descriptions and history very informative. I just wish there were more pictures at different angles and perhaps some more close up detail shots, particularly of the very subtle incised patterns etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous - so glad this is back in print, 1 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been chasing this lovely book for some years. The Netsuke collection at the V&A is superb and they have a copy of this book on display behind glass but it has been out of print for a while. Some lovely images from different angles and sometimes much closer than you can see them in real life because of the display restrictions (distance behind the glass and you can't see it from all angles. Would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in Japanese culture, especially Netsuke.

Edition: Paperback
Price: £6.33

2.0 out of 5 stars Better books out there on this subject, 1 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book would have been okay when it was first published but there are many better books out there now. The images are not as clear as I would have hoped given I have quite a few books by Dover that I am happy with. There are also books with similar images of better quality and include CDs so you can print them out to the size you are most interested in.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very bad packaging - crushed in the post, 1 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These labels were not in a protective retail package but shoved loosely with another set of labels into a "please do not bend" envelope that was only just the right size and not at all padded - "only just the right sizw", meaning that by the time they were roughly handled by the postal services the envelope had partially ripped and the corners and one part of two sides of all labels were damaged. There is a reason why these are so much cheaper that Avery - it's because they are rubbish. Would not order these from the same suppliers ever again. Can't even be bothered trying to return them, and will just have to see if I can use them, although the printer isn't happy about the damaged edges to feed through.
