Officially Licensed PS3 COMM-PLAY Stereo Gaming Headset CP-01 - Red
Offered by RAREWAVES
Price: £21.63

3.0 out of 5 stars Ideal stocking filler for young gamers with light use, adutls, fat heads or hardcore gamers stay away., 2 Dec 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Firstly I feel I have to point out this is NOT a Sony product, it is officially licensed for PS3 but (as I felt the packaging a little missleading) I felt I had to point this out. Ok well on with the review, basically you get what you pay for with these. If you are a serious gamer then you will not be looking at a headset around this pricemark but if like my boy you are a casual gamer who doesn't spend hour and hours wearing headphones and giving abuse to people you will never meet then these are fine. Build quality is you would expect for the price, nice gloss finish and the red color is a nice vibrant one. the cushioning on the ear pads is sufficient for a smaller head (maybe early to mid teens) but on an adult head the cushioning will be forced to its limit and makes for an uncomfortable experience after just a short time. Sound quality is pretty impressing I have to say and its a nice touch with the dual volume controls and mute button too, these controls are a good selling point for this unit. Very suprised that this headset cannot be used as headphones in a standalone capacity as they seem to require the usb to be connected to have power in them, this i found particularily unusual for headphones but then again this is sold as a gaming headset and not headphones.
All in all as I stated you get what you pay for and this would make an very good stocking filler for any young gamer but not recommended for adults, people with fat heads or anyone who intends to use these for a few hours at at a time.


Winnie The Pooh Post-N-Roll Hunny Pot
Winnie The Pooh Post-N-Roll Hunny Pot
Price: £18.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely toy. well made. good use of clours. Winner!!!!!, 29 Nov 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The main unit stands approx 10inches high and appears to be made of nice durable plastic. The colours are bright and vivid and the hunny spilling over the top of the pot is contoured and chunky for a realistic effect. Inside there is a helter skelter style slide for the ball to roll down. The balls are made up of 2 colors and again seem to be very well made and are not heavy or solid enough to be thrown and do any damage to baby or the tv.
The balls are placed one at a time into the top of the pot and swirl around and around as they make there way down the slide rotating around the inside of the pot which is clear and this is when the 2 colour balls come into there own as the colours blend together creating a nice visual effect. as the balls reach the bottom then the real excitment for baby begins..... which of the 4 doorways will the ball come out of??? The unit has a slider on the base that closes the 4 doors so it call all be stored away or transported without the balls going missing or falling out and causing and accident.
all in all this is a fantastic and very well made toy indeed and our little cherub (almost 8 months old) has been enjoying it on a daily basis. Also of note the balls all rattle too so even on there own they supply a certain amount of enjoyment.


Murad Age Reform Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture 50 ml
Murad Age Reform Hydro-Dynamic Ultimate Moisture 50 ml
Price: £57.60

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent cream but it come at a price, 23 Nov 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
First impressions was suprised at how small a pot of moisturiser you get for the price tag. Packaging again was unerwhelming considering the cost of the product I know you dont pay for the packaging but generally this is a pretty good indictation of quality. I used the cream daily for 2 weeks on my face and neck and initially there is a slight warming sensation which instantly tells me this is a deep moisturiser and the quality meter then goes up a notch. The cream itelf is not oily and absorbed into the skin quickly leaving a slight residue almost like a mask but this disperses after a few minutes leaving my skin feeling very very soft and hydrated indeed. Long term I have to say this IS a very good cream indeed but doesn't quite justify the price in my humble opinion. Word of warning though this does feel quite uncomfortable around the eyes creating an umpleasant stinging and also like with any cream try to avoid your hair too. Bottom line this is a very good cream if you don't mind paying over the odds

5.0 out of 5 stars Transform your tablet into a very ergonomic netbook in an instant. Flawless product., 5 Nov 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Well i am pleased to inform you that I am typing this review on my tablet, which until I recived this keyboard would be almost impossible to endure. As I am sure anyone reading this will understand typing on a tablet is a painful experience and one that takes longer than acutally hand writting which kinda defeats the object. I am pleasantly surprised by this little gadget as it is not a gimmick but a genuine fully legitimate addon to the tablet. As I type this now my tablet resembles a notebook as the magnetic strip holds the tablet at such an ergonomic angle to the keyboard it really is like typing on a netbook. The battery life seams VERY good too, same size charger as the tablet too (although a replacment cable is included) keys are of a suitable size to comfortably type with (Im a man with average mansized hands) the case seems very robust and one would imagine would offer a substantial amount of protection to the tablet although I would have prefered the branding of logitec to be embossed on the case rather than sticking out at the front on an excess piece of material, that aside this is a very very useful piece of equipment and really has transformed my tablet into a netbook/small laptop. The only thing you have to get used to is the lack of keypad for swiping etc but then you realise you have touch screen so don't need it. This however will definitely catch you out the first time you use it.
To sum up this product is worth its weight in gold and I would recommend it to anyone. Build quality is fantastic, love the way it clicks the tablet into place allowing for a very ergonomic experienc indeed. So here it is, the longest thing I have ever typed on a tablet in my life...... say a lot really doesn't is? Fantastic product.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you have outgrown Microsoft Word for desktop publishing then is your next step. Fantastic for the price!!!, 5 Nov 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
CorelDRAW seems to have been around for donkeys years and its the kind of software that scares people because of its depth (and until now its price tag) But lets have it right this is a VERY affordable and very powerful piece of software at this current price. What you get in the box is a disc and a slip of paper, the slip of paper has the serial number on so you can install and register, what the piece of paper also informs you is that if your device of choice does NOT have a disc drive then you can download the software directly a very nice and welcoming touch as many laptops, netbooks and even tablets are now powerful enough to run software of this nature but without a disc drive its been impossible to do this (legally).

Installation is quick and painless however it once again enforces the fear and intimidation of the product by showing us some users work which is of an EXTREMELY high standard indeed.

Ok so lets cut to the chase, this is a vector based desktop publishing suite. What does that mean? well in basic terms if you have outgrown Microsoft Office and want to add a bit more pizazz to your leaflets, flyers, cd covers, adverts, posters, business cards etc etc then this is the next step up. You can manipulate all your fonts create predetermined shapes add color, shadow, outline contour and many many other features too numerous to mention. You also have the ability to trace objects too with a wide range of detail from basic black and white copy to full colour clip arts so you can essentially change any elements of images, for example you could trace the McDonalds logo and change the yellow M a different colour with the click of a button. The fact that it is a vector based application means this can be as deep as you want it to be. You can actually change the shape of things or create your own shapes with pin point accuracy really opening up the boundaries of what you can do with regards your project. I would urge anyone new to the software or even desktop publishing as a whole to watch the tutorial videos included as they give a quite comprehensive look at many (buy by no means all) of the features and tools available.

For its price this really is unbeatable in my opinion and I for one will be a CorelDRAW fan for a very long time indeed.
I simply have scratched the surface of what this software can do and with a massive array of online tutorials on YouTube etc the only thing holding you back is time and effort.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spin the bottle / Truth or dare with a creepy hand gimmick repacing the bottle. LOVE IT!!!!!!, 28 Oct 2014
This review is from: Megableu Creepy Hand (Toy)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a new age twist on an old game (for those not familiar called "Spin the Bottle") Essentially a person is picked at random by (what used to be a manually spun bottle) in this instance a slightly creepy and larger than life green hand that (powered by a couple of AA batteries) runs around in circles on your smooth surface and stops with one finger extended to point out the next victim. The person the has to pick TRUTH or DARE from a card, if they do not tell the truth or do the dare then they must pay the forfeit on the bottom of the card. Now when we used to play this game as kids or even young adults the "dare" part of the game would be not really suitable for kids HOWEVER this being a family game I am pleased to say that after a quick pre scan of the cards that this really is a family game suitable for kids of all ages. Nothing too daring or risky but stuff like make funny noises and dance about like a monkey etc the kind of thing that if you Nan is doing on Christmas day will indeed bring hours and hours of fun and laughter.
Build quality of the hand is decent enough and appears to be built to last. Battery life I would imagine would be quite good as there is not a great deal of movement. It works very well on a smooth surface such as a dining table or laminate flooring but struggles to move on a carpet surface however shallow the pile.
All in all this new twist on an old game is enough of a revamp to introduce kids to the fun of family games that do not require a games console or a tv.
as a side note this could be a fun game for adults to play too especially if the vino is flowing if you know what I mean.
Top game that is reassuringly suitable for kids of all ages.


Hama Star 61 Tripod
Hama Star 61 Tripod
Price: £15.77

5.0 out of 5 stars An impressive first tripod and maybe the only one you will ever need., 22 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hama Star 61 Tripod (Accessory)
Now I am by no means even an amateur photographer BUT I have a nice big DSLR camera and if I want to push the boundaries of my photography a tripod is essential. I opted for this as the reviews vs the price really added up and I have to say I was not disappointed in the slightest. It comes boxed and in a zip up bag, when folded down its about 2ft when fully extended (center as well) I can stand with my camera at eye level without stooping at all. Robust enough for what I need and if you want to weigh it down you can hang a bag or weight from the center but I didn't feel that was necessary. I have successfully used this for still photography and for recording videos both indoor and outdoor and thus far do not have a single complaint whatsoever. you can adjust everything possible from angle, height and position, its light, its secure and I'm running out of positive things to say so just BUY IT!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The kitchen equivelant to a swiss army knife, 22 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
If you are reading this then I am going to stick my neck out and assume (yes I know I run the risk of making an ass out of u and me) that you know what a food processor is. Many of the reviews I have seen in recent times tend to sell a product as if its the first one on the market and nobody knows what this new gizmo is. Well this is a food processor so I'm not going to insult your intelligence by telling you what it does, I am however going to tell you what I think of its performance. First glance this (as kitchen appliances go) is a very attractive piece of kit. Its large enough to be a little intimidating and has more accessories than a barbie doll. It cuts chops slices dices purees blends grinds juices and well.... processes too many things for me to mention and it does it well. Its not the quietest appliance in the kitchen by a long shot but I have definitely experienced much louder food processors and blenders over the years. It has suction feet although its apply weighted enough to be secure especially if its full of food/liquid. Relatively easy to dismantle and easy to clean (dishwasher safe for all you lazy/posh people) some of the blades can be a little tricky to attach but maybe that is just my big silly man hands but I managed to attach all blades etc without too much money going into the swear box. All in all this is a hand piece of equipment for any kitchen that cooks or bakes on even a small and infrequent scale as its versatility replaces many other kitchen appliances so my advice is if your a cook or a baker upgrade you old blender, chopper, grater, dicer, slicer for an all in one unit that does more jobs than a single parent, is easy to clean and doesn't look half bad on the worktop. Top notch design and equally impressive performance.


HSD Fashion Luxury PU Leather Wallet Flip Case with Credit Card Slots & Holder For Samsung Galaxy S4 MINI I9190 / I9195 (Red/Yellow/Pink)
HSD Fashion Luxury PU Leather Wallet Flip Case with Credit Card Slots & Holder For Samsung Galaxy S4 MINI I9190 / I9195 (Red/Yellow/Pink)

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice case.............when it finally arrived., 13 Oct 2014
Nice product, well worth the money, well put together and holds the phone nice and snug and offers nice protection. comes complete with a wrist strap too which attaches itself to the spine of the wallet, magnetic clip could do with being a bit stronger. has storage for up to 3 credit cards which does add weight and bulk to the overall feel of the product and be warned credit cards can scratch your screen too.

The only thing that let this product down was the delivery time. Took almost a month to arrive which by todays standards is completely unacceptable.


Graco Snuggle Swing (Benny & Bell)
Graco Snuggle Swing (Benny & Bell)
Price: £99.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Expensive batteries aside this is a very good product that worked a treat on our baby., 13 Oct 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This suprisingly large swing takes up a fair bit of space so anyone who is limited on space should beware as the footprint of this is deceptively large compared to the images on Amazon. The box is pretty bulky too but assembly took my Mrs approx 25 mins from box open to baby in seat. The swinging motion is very smooth and almost silent in its action and the different speeds are noticeable to something to suit every baby Im sure. Annoyingly the unit takes 4 x D size cell batteries (the big fat ones) which can be quite expensive and no option of mains power cable or even an adapter to add mains power so it will be interesting to see how long the batteries last with continued use. The unit plays music which can be a little annoying to most adults as the quality is pretty poor considering the price tag of this unit and the soothing sounds is also a little bit on the cheap and nasty side of quality HOWEVER the soothing sounds certainly do work so as annoying as they may be to mum and dad Im pretty sure the proof is in the pudding and a snoozing baby is proof enough for me. The only drawback on this swing is it doesn't seem to specify or even recommend a age/size/weight for baby so as a general rule an average size newborn can fit easily in this and almost look a little lost and even our baby who is 6 months old and growing by the minute fits very easily into the chair however as she is more active and progressing she wont settle in this long enough to get to sleep as she is trying to sit up etc.
All in all a very good product indeed which does the job and does it well.
