So i brought these because i've recently got into origami and the traditions for them, I really wanted to try this one, your supposed to make a jar of stars with a wish inside each one for friends and family and/or then give the jar to someone you care about.
The paper is lovely and looks great when made into a star and put in a jar, theres also gold and silver paper that is smaller than the glittery paper but which i think look nice when next to the bigger stars, i haven't counted how much paper is there but there is alot.
I know these are supposed to be for party bags but they are perfect for this particular origami tradition.

5.0 out of 5 stars In a word awsome, 28 Nov. 2011
The first page of the book straight away puts you in the war, with air raid siren going off and the main character Will grabbing his drake tempest comics, the dog and running for the shelter.
After the first few pages the view point switches to his father Charlie the pilot squadron leader, I was a bit worried I would get bored of this soon I thought it was just background information but Charlie is the other half/viewpoint of this story and I was quickly hooked, I found the whole process of operation primrose describe wonderfully and quite fascinating, I dont want to give away anything but operation primrose does not go to plan.
When the view point is back on Will, some more memorable characters appear like his new found friends also not so main characters Ron, and the amusing Dave, you also find out more about his new life and interesting life as an evacuee which isn't quite what he thought it would be..
I just have to mention one part in this book put me in fits of laughter 'Christ yorkie that smells like a rat has crawled up your arse and died, I think you need to go to the bog don't you?' I won't giveaway how this came about but rest assured it is hilarious.
So to some up my review the book is interesting with two very different viewpoints and scenes on the war, with amusing and kinda badass characters :) also good information on the war and the job of a pilot, and the best possible thing dry/toilet humor, oh and it's kinda gory in places if you like that sort of thing, so in a word awesome :)

I can't wait for the next book but I hope they will come out in paperbacks/hardbacks rather than just kindle.

After seeing the fairly bad reviews for this i had to write one, after playing mario party 4 on gamecube i had to get this and its amazing i found almost all minigames enjoyable LOVE the gadgets snooze ewes is my favourite and it was challenging i still haven't sorted out the cheep cheep problem yet XD
and even though i have a 3ds now i still love playing it on my old sp, it is by far one of the best games i have ever had.

5.0 out of 5 stars My new favorite, 6 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have to say as much as i love the skulduggery books i was not impressed by mortal coil it was abit to morbid and macabre for me so i was kinda worried about this but it.. is.. amazing, this might just be me being biased as i love a good plot twist and my god this has a twist and another minor but intresting twist.
Though i will say if you like valkyrie you might not after this she does something that i find disgracefull so i really dont like her as a character anymore, thats the only thing i dont like.
sorry its not specific but i dont want to give away spoilers.

I brought this jacket months ago and i have waited this long to write the review as i wanted to see how durable it is, but first the delivery was amazingly fast and was wrapped in gold paper with a ribbon and lollypop which i thought was lovely, i had orderd a size 14 as im an awkward size but it didnt fit so i emailed them and i swiftley got an email back saying they would send ouy a size 12 as soon as they recieved the 14 in conformation and again i was not disapointed with the speedy delervery and another lollypop :D so well done to them for that.
And now the jacket it self, i absolutley love it, it makes you feel very swish and debonair,i feltvery cool going to college in it and a couple of my friends want one as well it is the kind of jacket that looksgreat on any one.
you can wash it in a washing machine but make sure you put it on setting 30 handwas and i need not say do not put itina dryer, when youdo wash it make sure you wont need to use it for a few days as it takes about two days to dry ona washing line :)
the only problem i can find is that the buttons comeoff fairly easily but thiswasnt much of a problem for me since i can sew quite well.
all in all amazaing love it, great service, fast delivery and great jacket.

1.0 out of 5 stars false advertisment, 19 Dec. 2010
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Amazon makes this game look great in the pictures but you cant do any of the things it shows thats the pc version their showing i thought it would be awsome to make a big pool maze like it shows in the picture but you cant even have a pool on it again they are showing what you can do on the pc version, you cant have a family on the game, you cant have a pool, you cant move house unless you re-start and the house is only one floor with next to no space to make it bigger, its not what a sims game should be.
