New Ottoman Foldaway Storage Blanket Toy Box Faux Leather Black
New Ottoman Foldaway Storage Blanket Toy Box Faux Leather Black
Offered by One Click Wonder
Price: 12.15

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality product & after sales service, 24 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The delivery time was very good and assembly was easy. It appeared to be a cheap and cheerful solution to the need for an occasional footrest with the benefit of additional storage space for small bits and pieces.
However, after less than two weeks, the seams of the lid began to split; and this was even before we'd had a chance to bring the box into active service. It now resembles a knackered trampoline, even though no-one has even rested a toe on it, much less attempted a triple summersault.
I contacted the supplier and after they twice suggested I pay to return the whole item for a replacement, eventually relented and promised to send out a returns label. Over a week on, I'm still waiting.
Whilst I accept that a product made of such material and priced accordingly is not likely to last forever, I do expect a lifespan in excess of half a month.
My advice is if you do want a similar item, buy from a reputable dealer who won't go all Arthur Daley on you, should you require a replacement or refund.

5.0 out of 5 stars NOT a "new" edition!!, 23 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very amusing animation for kids and adults alike.
However, just one word of caution with this particular DVD: it does NOT contain any new episodes. All of those on this disc were made in 2012.
This is a repackaged and reissued selection from the series of two years ago, with the purpose of promoting the upcoming new feature-length Shaun The Sheep production.

The Spectacular Spider-Man - Complete Season 1 [DVD]
The Spectacular Spider-Man - Complete Season 1 [DVD]
Price: 17.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Hey! There goes the Spider-man!, 21 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of the better Spidey cartoon series out there. I've always been a big fan, but most of the animated efforts have been disappointing because they seem to lack the character depth and storyline detail of the comics and graphic novels.
Of course, many cartoons are chiefly aimed at a primary school-age audience, but if you don't also manage to keep other fans happy too (whatever their age) then your audience becomes marginalised and the series is largely forgotten very quickly.
Anyway, these episodes should keep most fans happy as it is basically a freshened-up retrospective of Spider-man's origins and an introduction to his greatest foes. The stories will have a familiar feel for existing stalwarts and should delight the newcomers too.

3.0 out of 5 stars Practical, if not pretty, 21 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a well insulated travel mug with a secure lid and rubberised grip band. Although not small enough to be considered convenient for those without a large bag to keep it in once empty (if using it outside of the car), it's probably one of the more robust mugs on the market.


Hello Kitty Mini Dolls House
Hello Kitty Mini Dolls House

4.0 out of 5 stars Small in size but big in fun, 21 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hello Kitty Mini Dolls House (Toy)
The teeny pieces probably won't stay in the house (yours or Kitty's) for very long, but it seems to provide many hours of playtime fun. The house folds away easily and can be carried by the handle at the top. It is a bit difficult to open without the balcony and swimming pool sections coming apart, but aside from that it's been a worthwhile purchase.


Taxi Season 2 [DVD]
Taxi Season 2 [DVD]

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless entertainment, 16 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Taxi Season 2 [DVD] (DVD)
Well-written, funny (though at times gritty), but still-relevant comedy from the 80s. Set in a taxi rank garage in New York, the stories revolve around a handful of cab drivers, their despatcher (Danny DeVito) and comedian Andy Kaufman's squeaky-voiced Latka character, the mechanic from Eastern Europe.
DeVito wasn't the star of the show at the outset; Kaufman, Judd Hirsch (Riga) and Jeff Conaway (Bobby) were considered as the A-listers when Season one aired but DeVito and Christopher Lloyd went on to become far bigger names than the rest of their Taxi colleagues.
This semi-soap comedy series stands up well today, with top-notch acting and dialogue, interesting storylines and the occasional melancholic shot of NYC.
Great timeless entertainment.

4.0 out of 5 stars The original and still the best, 17 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
So many retail businesses had these hanging in their doorways when I was a kid, usually multi-coloured and flapping about gently in the breeze. They rarely tangled and kept most of the pesky flies at bay. And all these years later, I remain convinced that this is still the best style of door blind to buy.
I have tried others; beads, cords and mesh screens. None match up because they either tangle round themselves, strangle those who try to pass through, or simply fall off.
Some things just can't be altered or improved upon.


Bosch TAS2002GB Tassimo T20 Hot Beverage Machine, Gloss Black
Bosch TAS2002GB Tassimo T20 Hot Beverage Machine, Gloss Black
Price: 69.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Hot stuff, 17 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had very serious doubts that any drinks machine could ever produce beverages matching the quality of those made "properly", either at home or in a coffee bar. How wrong you can be sometimes.
Whilst the pods do cost you around 40-50 pence each (when not on offer at the supermarkets), there's no denying that it is difficult to tell the difference between an in-house Costa Americano and an in-home Tassimo Costa Americano. Yes, really!
Although I haven't tried the whole range of Tassimo-compatible drinks, I can vouch that the Cadburys hot chocolate, Costa Latte, Americano and Cappucino all make the grade.
The machine itself is easy to operate and less of a chore to clean than any percolator. Just ensure you run some descaling tablets through on a regular basis and it shouldn't give you any bother.
If you are serious about your coffee (and hot choc), then this is a tasty investment.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fine when it works, 17 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Obviously it depends on the service provider and strength of their signal where you happen to be using this, so perhaps it is a little unfair to mark it down in this respect. Nevertheless, any product is only useful when it is doing what you expect of it, and aside from reception, this mifi modem is a nice handy size - much like a large pebble.
As previous reviewers have noted,it can be a bit frustrating getting the thing open to insert the SIM card, but apart from that I have no real complaints.
Unfortunately, with not too many rival mifi products out there, right now this is most likely one of the best.
