5.0 out of 5 stars Flips for the Nintendo DS - the most practical way of reading books!, 4 Jan 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Hello everyone!
I own three Flips titles for the DS
and I think these interactive book collections of about 6-8 books
are a fantastic way of presenting books to both children and adults
interessted in reading children books.
For my much more detailed review, please read my review
for Flips: Enid Blyton - The Faraway Tree Stories!

Note: My reviews are mainly about the Flips Book series as interactive books,
not about the different books and their contents.

In my opinion the Nintendo DS is a most practical device for reading books
without backpain because of holding heavy books
and I can't wait for more Flips titles to be released!

I hope for the Harry Potter books and The lord Of The Rings Trilogy as Flips!

5.0 out of 5 stars The most amazing way of reading books!, 2 Jan 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
I recently discovered the Nintendo DSi for reading books, it is perfect!
I also own the "100 Classic Book Collection" for the DSi and that is already great!
Then I purchased 3 Flips for the Nintendo DS,
- Enid Blyton: Faraway Tree Storys
- Cathy Cassidy 6 Book Pack
- Eoin Colfer: Artemis Fowl
and I am totally stunned!
First you can easily access several books on every Flips collection
and that makes it really handy (much heavier holding the real books and what grand pile in real books it would be indeed beside the bed).
Then you have nice colour pictures to go with your reading and interactive features, for example if a new character is introduced you can touch the name, which is underlined and get information on the character. And when you have reached another chapter there is always a summary of the previous chapter only a touch away. The most surprising feature are the interactive sounds and images that go with the text - it is difficult to explain but it certainly improves your imagination while reading. There are also collectibles between the pages and you get rewarded once in a while. I will not tell everything, otherwise I will spoil your fun.
Maybe it is intressting for you to know that I am an adult who likes reading children's books (some of which I read when I was a child and some of which I discovered later). This is a great way for children to get into the wonderful world of books and storys!
But I think the Flips could also do nicely for books from other categories and for all ages!!!
I really hope that more bookcollections will come.
I would really like the whole "Harry Potter" series and "The Lord of the rings" trilogy and The Holy Bible (and many more....) in Flips.
It cost me a lot of backpain to read these really heavy fantasy books!
So if Nintendo wants to compete with other multi digital devices as the Ipod Touch or ebook-readers, there is a chance!
For all Flips I give 5 stars and even more if that were possible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic journey throught the stargate!, 5 May 2009
Stargate S.G. 1 The Complete Series (All seasons 1-10 and the 2 feature films!) has everything You ever could wish for.
The series takes You on a fantastic journey through the stargate.

I am totally satisfied with the picture and sound qualitiy of the DVD's.
It is a plus that there are more audio options and subtitle languages from the second season on. Ewen if we are always viewing the episodes in English it helps with occasional subtitles for the very special vocabulary involved (English is not our native language).
From the third season on there are Special Features which I think are excellent.

The packinging is simpel, nothing fancy, but practical.
Why pay the double amount of money only because of some gold glimmering packaging and in my opinion a more difficult way of storing the DVD's in several "book"s?
The importing thing is the series itself!

The only thing that is missing is a booklet containing all episode lists,
but there are lots of nice books on that subject with colour pictures, episode guides and interviews of the cast and crew.
As the DVD box was not so extremly expansive as other collections You can afford to buy lots of nice books seperately!
Stargate S.G. 1 - The Complete Series is a bargain,
grabb it while You can and enjoy!
