Nivea Sun Kids Caring Roll-On with High SPF50 50 ml
Nivea Sun Kids Caring Roll-On with High SPF50 50 ml
Price: £4.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for kids. Able to apply it themselves., 17 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This sun tan cream looks essentially like roll on deodorant. A small squat bottle with a larger roller ball head. It's a great innovation as it means you can cover you kids arms etc. with sun tan cream without any of it spilling or the general mess. Once applied it comes in a fairly thin coating and so you just have to rub it in and you're done. It's so easy that my kids (6 and 8) can pretty much just apply it themselves, though you do need to check for coverage. Great innovation. Only drawback is that it's a very small bottle, but it's perfect to add to a day bag when out on a sunny day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little playset., 20 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My 6 year old daughter loves this little farm play set. It has really solid, colourful pieces. It all fits together very well and has kept her playing for hours. Highly recommended.

Playmobil 6657 City Life Furnished Children's Hospital
Price: £50.86

2.0 out of 5 stars 2+ hours to put together and a child can't physically do it. Stick with Lego., 20 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This hospital play set, is great once it's constructed, very detailed, lots of different rooms and features. However, for a child raised on Lego, it's quite frankly impossible for them to put together. Small plastic clips (about 60 of them) have to be inserted in holes on every piece and despite my help and much pushing painfully down, my 8 year simply couldn't do it, leaving her disappointed and frustrated. Added to this, unlike Lego where you open and go through the bags in order, here the pieces could be anywhere in the entire set of 200+ pieces. Just really disappointing experience. We persevered and got it up and playing but I can't really recommend it because of the awful construction process. I didn't buy my kid a toy to give them a worse-than-IKEA like experience.

1.0 out of 5 stars Can't get it to work fully., 20 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Using the app, I can switch it on and off about 50% of the time, when I'm on my home network, but doesn't work at all from outside the home. Timers don't work at all. I set them, they say they're set, but nothing actually happens when the time comes around. Nice idea, but just doesn't work as it should.


The Gunpowder Plot (Great Events)
The Gunpowder Plot (Great Events)
by Gillian Clements
Edition: Paperback
Price: £4.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Well written book, though a big gruesome!, 22 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My 7 year old daughter liked this illustrated (there are black and white pictures throughout) history book about the Gun Powder plot. It's quite detailed and clear, though I found it a big gruesome in places with the various depictions of heads on spikes and people being hung, drawn and quartered. It's a bit like Horrible Histories, but with less obvious humour, but an interesting overview nonetheless.


Breville VKJ954 Vista Polished Stainless Steel Jug Kettle, 1.7 Litre, Silver
Breville VKJ954 Vista Polished Stainless Steel Jug Kettle, 1.7 Litre, Silver
Price: £24.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Good basic kettle, but not great., 22 May 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As other reviewers have stated, this is a good entry level kettle. It boils fast, is easy to locate on its base and looks good. The minimum fill is very low (about 250ml, less than a cup) though frustratingly the scale on the side starts at 2 cups. I had a few minor frustations. I found the spout filter very hard to fit, though I do have large hands, also it's not insulated, so the metal outside gets hot, not great with the kids around and finally it doesn't have any form of scale control etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great solid, simple ab roller., 22 May 2016
If you're going to buy an Ab roller, you need to decide if you're going to buy one with footstraps (which give you a range more exercises to do from the same equipment) or one without. Personally, I think the (much more expensive) ones with footstraps are a bit of a waste of time as you never really use them and one like this is the best one to go for. This particular model, was perfect for me. Easy to put together, very solidly built, lightweight and a good cheap price. You've really don't have any reason to look further. It comes with a link to a website for various exercises which is handy, though you can find all you need on You Tube very easily.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great budget every day umbrella. Solid and reliable., 2 May 2016
At 29cm long, this umbrella is perfect for everyday use. I keep it in my laptop bag and it's perfect for those days when you get caught out weather wise. The brolly is spring loaded. One push of the button opens it completely from fully closed. Another push of the button closes the shade, but keeps the stem extended. You then reset simply give it a solid push re-engage the umbrella. The push required might be a bit much for anyone elderly but is generally ok. Overall the umbrella is very solidly made. The handle and grip are strong and weighty and the nylon material and cover seems strong. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good supplemental 11+ practice papers, 19 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
With the 11+ exam coming up at the end of the summer, I got this collection of practice papers for my daughter. There's 10 papers, each with 100 questions, covering all aspects of the English part of the exam (as opposed to Maths, Verbal Reasoning and non-Verbal Reasoning). My daughter found them a useful aid and a good addition to other practice she has received. The Bond series of books is very good in general covering all aspects of preparation for the exam.


Wilkinson Sword Hydro 3 Razor Blades - Pack of 4
Wilkinson Sword Hydro 3 Razor Blades - Pack of 4
Price: £6.81

5.0 out of 5 stars Very smooth shave., 19 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I'd never used a Wilkinson Sword razor until now but I was impressed by this one. While every other brand of razor is going for 4 and 5 blades, this one sticks at 3 and the shave was great for me. The lubricating strip (or whatever Wilkinson Sword call it, 'the gel reservoir') does a great job of giving a super smooth shave, even if I hadn't shaved for a few days. Recommended.
