4.0 out of 5 stars ANGRY CATERPILLARS?!, 6 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Little Chomp (App)
Well it will never win game of the year but this is a decent variant on the angry bird concept of aim and release mixed with a platformer. Nice graphics and kids will enjoy it - free app of the day on Amazon today; get it while it's hot (",)

2.0 out of 5 stars DID NOTHING, 5 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have taken a similar product whilst training in the past with small results but for whatever reason these tablets have done nothing for me. The nature of these products tends to be that it works for some and not others. Guess I'm with the others..

5.0 out of 5 stars DOGS LOVE IT!, 5 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Two dogs in the household a Collie with sensitive skin and a touch joint stiffness and a cocker. Both dogs dance at meal times since we started using this Salmon oil. We have had no side effects such as excess dog smell and both dogs do seem to be looking glossier and the Collie seems to be able to move quicker from lying down. Recomended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great tongs, 4 July 2014
Leifheit tongs are always great and I have a couple of pairs for different uses. This review is intended to guide you so that you make the right purchase choice - these tongs do not have silicone food grips at the business end. They are still great and worth the price.

Any game that demands an email address or facebook login for play to continue is one to avoid. A real shame as everything else about the game is good.

3.0 out of 5 stars GREAT PICTURE BUT POORLY THOUGHT OUT DEVICE, 26 Jun. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'll begin on a positive note and say that the monitor has a very crisp high quality display and also incorporates room temperature alert, sound monitoring, 5 lullabies, out of range alert and remote pan, tilt and zoom.

All good but there are some drawbacks.
The menu system seems like its an afterthought and the icons leave a lot to be desired.
The camera unit lacks a bracket to hang it on and while you can mount on a wall via screw or nail, had they simply included a bracket then this would have made it more versatile by providing more scope for positioning.

Finally, you will look to compare it with other monitors and one I'm familiar with, the BT Digital Video Baby Monitor 1000, is a good place to start and wins for me because it offers the bracket and the camera unit also has more scope when placed on a table horizontally.

Your choice, as I see it, is a clearer image of your child or the more versatile and cost effective option of the BT unit?

4.0 out of 5 stars SOLID PERFORMER, 26 Jun. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Let's firstly start with the brand, Oral-B by Procter & Gamble; if you are not familiar with the brand then let me reassure you that when it comes to electric toothbrushes they are excellent and probably the leaders in the sector.

Back to the toothbrush and how it performs; one word - fantastic with the added bonus of a small remote display that shows you how long you have been brushing (it is timed to allow you to brush for two minutes and switch to another part of your mouth after 30 seconds. But, the brush will work equally well without the display and gives a little pause every 30 seconds). You also get a natty travel case for your brush, a charging base which fits previous Oral-B toothbrush models, a couple of brush heads and a tray to store them.

All of which is good, however, the price....WOW! Talk about eye watering! My point of authority? I bought an earlier version of the 5000 at the end of 2012 and paid £57.56 and the only difference that I can see is that the handset has been remodeled - checkout the link here Braun Oral-B TriZone SmartSeries 5000 Five-Mode Rechargeable Toothbrush with Wireless Smart Guide (Packaging and Smart Guide Varies)

The question you now have to ask yourself is do you really want to pay the difference? For the life of me I can't see why you would.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quick and simple but you must be quick.., 19 Jun. 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have had this knowledge imparted by wife who is far sturdier soul than I, (when it comes to removing hair)! The only real drawback as some other reviewers have pointed out is that you can't take a leisurely approach to using it as the wax becomes too cold to use. So, if you want a quick and easy way of hair removal without the cost of going down the salon or when you abroad then this is worth a look.

5.0 out of 5 stars PERFECT, 3 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have owned a variety of headphones that were advertised as being suitable for use in the gym or road running (all of which were corded). Having been on the hunt for a bluetooth headphone and scoured quite a few reviews, the Avantree Jogger seemed a good option.

I noted that some people had complained that the lack of adjustment made them difficult to use if you have a big or small head. Not knowing what the measurement for big or small head is other than I'm 6ft 2" and my head is proportionate therefore likely to be on the big side for these headphones to fit comfortably...and they are fine.

Admittedly, I would like some adjustment to see if fit could be improved but you pays your money and makes your choice! The rubber type buds are critical for my use and the headset would be rendered useless for me if they were not included and I had to rely on just the plastic earpiece.

Connection to my iPhone was straight forward and painless. Charging via a purpose designed usb cable connected to my MacBook Air worked well and was quick at approx 2 hours.

Sound quality is good with a decent range - will it win awards for sound quality maybe not but as a solution that stays on your head and is not torn out by flailing arms catching a cord, then I can't fault them.

For the price and freedom from headphone cords then this headset is perfect.

4.0 out of 5 stars SOLID STEAMING PERFORMANCE, 3 May 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'm a bit of a Vax fan as I find that they produce good equipment at a competitive price point. The S86 is no different. Out of the box the unit snaps together easily and you are up and running in 5 minutes. Tiled floors were easily steamed clean and the shape of the head made easy work of the area around the bathroom toilet.

Why only 4 stars? Well, its the trigger button. I found it uncomfortable and you have to keep it depressed to release steam. From the perspective of people that may have arthritis or not the strongest grip this could really be an issue and needs to be highlighted.

Apart from that, it's a solid performer.
