4.0 out of 5 stars very good product, feels a higher quality then the more ..., 3 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
very good product, feels a higher quality then the more standard screen protectors. Very easy to put on, just line up and give it a tap in the middle then the silicon gel backing spreads out across the phone bubble free.
the screen looks smart and no issues re response
one small point is that the protector is just slightly shorter than the screen/black surround on the phone - it leaves a sub 1mm gap top and bottom and would be neater if slightly longer to meet the join with the grey part of the phone front top/bottom.
a definite recommend

5.0 out of 5 stars Mighty indeed, 5 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Mighty indeed
great features - sounds and lights for forward and back plus the motor disengages when switched off so it can be freely pushed around.
I also like that the batteries go in thru the funnel!
our two boys (4 & 2) love it, it works well with all their different wooden train sets (Melissa & Doug; Big Jig; Ikea etc) and can pull quite a number of carriages
it seems fairly robust and has survived drops and bashes so far

4.0 out of 5 stars The facts and figures are presented in a narrative/engaging way great for younger readers, 5 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really big book
it is ..it is approx. 50% bigger then A4, which gives it space for lots of big glossy pictures.
The facts and figures are presented in a narrative/engaging way great for younger readers.
Our 4 year loved looking up the planes he has in the book and comparing facts etc and discovering some new planes.
for 5stars i would have liked to have see a few more planes in the book (there are 14) and some classics like a spitfire etc (it does have concorde)
A strong recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Replacement tap nozzle, 29 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
good quality and a perfect fit for the bathroom tap, appears to be the same one that came with the tap originally.
prompt delivery and a good price
finding a replacement nozzle seems quite tricky given the views on forums etc but this one/this company are good

4.0 out of 5 stars Buggy Board - Not quite right for iCandy Peach but still good, 31 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The buggy board is strong/sturdy; forgiving of bumps and holes in the road and steers well. Our toddler really enjoys ridng on it.
As probably with all buggy boards, you have to adjust your stride pattern to not kick it and steering is more at arms length to allow space for the board.
It does fit an iCandy Peach but the frame on the buggy is 1-2cm too narrow for a direct fit into the board adaptors, so they have to be angled out to take the buggy board holding pegs. More of an issue that given the size and shape of the iCandy peach frame the buggy board will not fold up out of the way when not in use.
For us these issues have not outweighed the benefit.


Your Baby Week By Week: The ultimate guide to caring for your new baby
Your Baby Week By Week: The ultimate guide to caring for your new baby
by Dr Caroline Fertleman
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.09

4.0 out of 5 stars helpful for first time parents, 26 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Any parent knows that there are lots and lots of baby training/advice books and information around.
What we liked about this book, especially as 1st time parents was its ease of use/access - by organising the information for each week on a standard basis (ie feed, sleep, play, whats happening to mum, what to look out for etc) you can easily read the week or dip into any topic you are interested in.
Having now passed the stages the book takes you through i can also say that the advice and information given is genuinely useful and relevant.
It is not a train your dog (ok, baby!) style book ...its more informational and experience driven to give you support and ideas. It is really helpful to be able to look forward a couple of weeks and have some detail as to what will be happening etc ...especially when its says things make get easier!

To get 5/5 i would like the author to strengthen the play/development sections - it is covered but more ideas would be useful.

I would recommend buying this book alongside What to Expect the First Year, which is not so easy a read but has a lot of detail re organising the house; illness; first aid etc and is a great reference style book.

GreenPan, Vienna Black Aluminium, 24 cm, Covered Skillet / Saute Pan, Ceramic Non-Stick Coating

5.0 out of 5 stars high performance frying/saute pan, 26 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the second Green Pan product i have bought in the past year and if the price dips on any of their other pans etc I will get some more!
These pans are really versatile - i use this one to wok fry at high temperatures; to saute and as a hob to oven casserole dish using the lid.
I have tried other pans at a similar price but none of them have performed as well as the Green Pan.
No matter what i have cooked or what temperature or length of time the pan has done a great job and has been really easy to clean after.

I have bought the hard anodised and the black colour versions, they both look good and do the same job.

A really good product that is increasingly used in professional kitchens.
