Philips Sonicare HX6311/07 Rechargeable Toothbrush for Kids
Philips Sonicare HX6311/07 Rechargeable Toothbrush for Kids
Price: 37.50

5.0 out of 5 stars The very best kids toothbrush., 24 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I love this electric toothbrush. The heads are just the right size for a small kids mouth. The fact that the head vibrates (rather than rotates) makes it much less abrasive and pleasant for my daughter. The brush vibrates nicely and makes a noise every 15 seconds (or 30 if you put it on the longer mode) so they can track how long they've been brushing. Finally the changeable stickers are a nice touch, allowing them to personalise the toothbrush so they love it from day one. It also lasts ages on one charge so no need to have constantly plugged in.


Out of The Furnace [DVD] [2013]
Out of The Furnace [DVD] [2013]
Dvd ~ Christian Bale
Price: 9.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Stellar cast, ordinary movie., 18 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Out of the furnace is an engaging enough thriller but simply isn't compelling enough to keep you interested. The cast (Christian Bale, Woody Harrelson, Casey Affleck) is stellar, but there's not much you can do when the characters are so one dimensional and under developed. Overall I'd give it a miss.


The Gro Company Wall Stickers Hetty
The Gro Company Wall Stickers Hetty
Price: 12.95

3.0 out of 5 stars Good addition to the wall chart, but quite small., 17 Jun 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I already had the Gro Company Hetty Height chart that were a great addition to our children's play room, to give it some colour. These stickers were a good way to give some additional wall coverage. The stickers are good quality, but I was disappointed at how small and what a low surface area that they covered. For 12 I would have expected something bigger.

The tree for example is about half the size of the height chart tree.

3.0 out of 5 stars But what's it for?, 19 May 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As with all Trunki product, this travel toy box is solid and well made. To open it, you turn it upside down (wheels on top) undo the clips and remove the lid using the carry handle. All very simple, but unlike the excellent trunki suitcases, I really can't see what you'd use it for... The box is the wrong shape to fit on an airplane, there's no way to pull it along, the wheels are very small and pick up every bump. Perhaps useful for toys on a car-trip away, but other than that it feels not that useful unless you just want a small to medium sized toy box.


Galt Toys Girl Club Glitter Studio
Galt Toys Girl Club Glitter Studio
Price: 11.24

3.0 out of 5 stars Fairly basic kids art set. Not the best quality, 19 May 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
While this art set has everything you'd expect (marker pens, notepads, glitter glue, card, card stencils etc.) there's nothing really here to inspire the kids to create. The notepad is very plain and some of the materials really weren't the best quality. Sadly this just became another source of marker pens, glue and paper for my girls, rather than a set they played with specifically.


The Gro Company Height Chart Sticker Set Jolly Jungle

4.0 out of 5 stars Really like these stickers. Great addition to our playroom, 19 May 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I really like these wall stickers. They give the room some colour and interest without overwhelming it (like some of the very colourful, Disney ones do). Basing the idea around a height chart is a great idea, though it really only covers about 1m x 1.5m of wall, so if you're looking to cover a larger space you might want to think about getting the second sticker pack in the same style.

The height chart part of the collection (the tree trunk and main leaves) take a while to get straight, but the rest is easy and the kids loved helping out with it. They've been up a few weeks now and have very reliably stayed up.

Galt Giant Floor Puzzle Jungle
Galt Giant Floor Puzzle Jungle
Price: 10.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Not sure I'd describe it as 'giant', 19 May 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
At 60cm by 90cm, this jigsaw really isn't as big as I was expecting. For a floor jigsaw I would have expected something bigger, made out of foam (rather than normal jigsaw cardboard). Having said that, it's a reasonable jigsaw, whole animals as pieces with background in traditional jigsaw pieces. My 5 year old found it straight forward so maybe better for 3-4.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just too mystical / airy fairy for me., 16 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I got this to try and get me over a recent tough relationship break-up, but I just couldn't find it useful. I found it lacking in any basic grounding for the techniques which as a science-based thinker I couldn't buy into. It just seemed to mystical and mantra based for me. I preferred the more general "The Chimp Paradox" from Dr Steve Peters.

5.0 out of 5 stars My 5 year old daughter loves it., 16 April 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Bright, colourful, lots of useful pockets including a great lunch compartment that you can use to keep lunch cool all day. A hit with my five year old.
