5.0 out of 5 stars superhero pencils, 8 Feb. 2014

Great for party bags or back to school pencil cases. The.generic superhero images make a nice change from the trademarked images found elsewhere. Really pleased with the quick dispatch and delivery.

3.0 out of 5 stars not really 'paint' pens, 29 Dec. 2012

This review is from: Crayola 5 Paint Brush Pens (Toy)
Got these for Christmas for my 20 month old who loves doing arty activities.

Was hoping that these really were 'paint' pens and that we could re-fill them, but they are more like very wet felt tip pens, which was a bit disappointing.

Having said that, they are fantastic pens, stood up very well well to the abuse dished out by both my boys (the older one is almost 4), and I love the different lines that can be achieved with them. I won't buy them again though.

4.0 out of 5 stars not as good as the other Aliens books, 1 Sept. 2012
This is a seasonal story about those cheeky Aliens who love Underpants. They get up to all sorts of mischief while helping Santa prepare for Christmas, and come to the rescue when his sleigh breaks.
Written in the same rhyming style as as the other books, and it is fun, but IMHO its not as good as Aliens Love Underpants! and Aliens in Underpants Save the World.


Dragon and Judge (Dragonback Volume 5)
Dragon and Judge (Dragonback Volume 5)
by Timothy Zahn
Edition: Mass Market Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars another 'Dragon' classic, 4 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As with all the Zahn 'Dragon & ....' books, a superbly crafted tale of Jack and Draycos' quest to save the rest of the K'da and the Shotine hosts from certain death.

As the quest nears the conclusion they find themselves on a planet where the locals believe Jack to be a Judge Paladin, and expect him to hear all their court cases, holding him virtual prisoner while he does so.

It is up to Draycos to explore and find the information needed to uncover the mysteries that, once again, surround them both. This is a story of Jacks past, and what happened to his parents, as well as getting them another step forward in the hunt for the people responsible for the betrayal of Dracos' people.

5.0 out of 5 stars little books for little hands, 4 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Our son loves these books - they are just the right size for his hands.

The images are like the original EH Shepard illustrations, with Piglet in his green jumper and not all pink like Disney. Nice rhymes to introduce the characters, but NOT the original stories, even with AA Milne listed as author.

Would recommend to anyone hoping to get their little ones into Winnie the Pooh.

1.0 out of 5 stars not so great, 13 May 2010
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this for my husbands birthday present, and he commented on how much better it was than his old wheel. However after 20 minutes it stopped working, and wouldn't restart. We think that the power supply is the problem as it came with a European plug and an adaptor for UK 3 pin sockets.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!, 7 Mar. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have a small collection of books about patchwork and quilting, but none have made me go 'WOW' quite like this one! I have a quilt under way (not from this book) and can't wait to get to the point when I'm ready to start another - and it will definitely be one of these - I am scouring the shops (both actual and virtual) for THE fabric to use. The images are so inspiring, so many fabrics I would class as 'unusable' or 'horrid' turned into amazing, exciting, awe inspiring quilts!

The information on choosing fabric and how much fabric to purchase is spot on, and very easy to understand and the instructions for making the quilt seem to be precise and accurate, certainly I understood the process from just one reading.
Going to be ordering 'encore' soon, and can't wait for the hollow cube book which is out soon.
