2.0 out of 5 stars Fundamental problem..., 31 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this product from the sellar 'Buyincoins' which is based in China, so it took quite a while for the product to arrive. Secondly, they had stuck a big sticker on the smooth face of this 'smoothing tool' which, when removed left a bit sticky mark. The smoothing tool now doesn't smooth! Had to use a lot of scraping and nail polish remover to get the sticky stuff off and now the tool is a bit scratched.

3.0 out of 5 stars Beware of 5* reviews, 18 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The company offer a discount to people who write them a 5* review on here, so beware of these reviews!

This glue arrived in a reasonable time although many items ordered at the same time arrived several days earlier.

The 'use by' date on mine is less than a year, so not an item you can keep for the annual birthdays, otherwise seems to work fine.

Yes these stickers smell (sort of like mothballs....) but we got over it by putting them in a bowl, which we needed to do anyway, to let my little boy choose which one he wanted. The pictures are good quality and a nice variety. They are nice and sticky with easy to remove backing. In my opinion, good value for money. We used them for potty training and they worked a treat!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great shapes and a good size, 15 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these for my animal mad son so we could bake together. They are a good shape and the biscuits hold the shape well enough when cooked. You do have to watch when baking as they all cook at different speeds, the elephants are always day first!

Don't use the recipe on the back however, the dough is extremely sticky and almost impossible to use- you have to wrestle with it so much you lose the shape of the cookies!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect!, 29 Jun 2012

This review is from: Cheadle Royal Lion Tabard (Toy)
We bought this tabard for our 2 year old who is lion mad and he absolutely loves it. It's a great design to fit lots of sizes, we put a jumper underneath it this time and it fitted perfectly. With a bit of face paint we had the perfect costume for the party, good value and easy to use. You can also remove it easily at the party when it gets hot and your child wants to run around- highly recommended, please make other animals!

4.0 out of 5 stars The best Christmas present!, 12 Jan 2012
= Durability:2.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these for my son who is nearly 2 and once he had opened them on Xmas day no other toy mattered! A great range of animals which can b e moved about the house, stuck to radiators, fridges, fireplaces, etc. My only criticism is that 2 weeks later they're already looking very worn. Any water or damp, like sweaty little hands or a cloth wiping off the jam will damage the pictures, never mind if they are near a mouth (presumably why they're marked for over 3's?).all that being said they're still very loved and played with every day.


Dvorak - Stabat Mater
Dvorak - Stabat Mater
Price: £12.80

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting version, shame about the tuning, 16 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dvorak - Stabat Mater (Audio CD)
This was the only recording I could find of this 'original' version of the Stabat Mater.

The piece is generally well performed and the pianist is really excellent. The opening introduction is beautifully played. The soloists are good and certainly add weight and volume easily heard in the tutti sections above the choir.

Sadly the tuning of the choir almost destroys my enjoyment of this CD. Given that they are accompanied by the piano throughout there is really no excuse, and if tuning is something which bothers you prepare to sit with your eyebrows through the roof for most of this recording. If it doesn't bother you then this is a well done enjoyable listen.

Hopefully another choir will record this version of Dvorak soon, and if they do, I'll put this one up for sale!

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality that doesn't last, 13 Feb 2011
We bought our Samsung Fridge Freezer 3 years ago and have had problems ever since.

The fridge looks lovely, has good space inside and when working does a good job. However....

Customer service is very poor. Call centres and emails are all very difficult to understand. We've had to replace parts every year and parts are only guaranteed for 90 days. For us they never seem to work for more than a year.

We bought Samsung as we liked the product and thought that the name would ensure a certain quality. It doesn't.


Croatia (Landscapes)
Croatia (Landscapes)

Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Ok, but a little awkward!, 25 Mar 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Croatia (Landscapes) (Paperback)
We have used various sunflower guides and buy them again because they contain a good range of lovely walks.

A couple of little gripes though- the walks are difficult to pinpoint on the country maps as the colours used don't make them stand out. Whilst the book is nice and small and ideal for a bacl pack it is a bit difficult to hold open. I also found it quite difficult to work out which order they had arranged the walks- turns out they're in the order of their car tours....

It takes a bit of effort to 'get into' this book and find what you're looking for, but the content is good after all that effort.

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid peice of equipment, 22 Feb 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I recently received my Magimix and am thoroughly enjoying it as a very easy to use piece of equpment.

It is heavy, but leaving it out on the worktop overcomes that issue.

Two small complaints- to use the mini bowl, you have to leave the mini bowl in the larger one; often food spills out into the larger bowl meaning double the washing up.

Secondly I would have hoped at this price that the attachments would be fully dishwasher proof, but I notice the company cover themselves with comments like- only guaranteed with liquid dishwasher cleaners and only use on the top shelf of your dishwasher....
