Baby Kilt Sock/Hose In Cream/Ecru - Ages 0 - 2
Offered by Tartanista UK
Price: £6.99

3.0 out of 5 stars They certainly don't fit a 2 year old, 13 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These seem well-made. They were bought for a 2 year old and are nowhere near big enough. Might fit a 9 month old?

5.0 out of 5 stars Just as good as the big brand but cheaper, 13 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well-made, brightly coloured. Interesting figures (including a dog), lots of shapes. When put together the pieces stay together. I've no idea whether they are compatible with Stickle Bricks but they seem to be of similar quality for much less. The grandsons love them!

5.0 out of 5 stars Give me generic every time., 13 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I do not know if these are compatible with Stickle Bricks. However, they seem to be of good quality and they fit together (and stay together) very well. My two 2y.o. grandsons love them. I can see no reason to pay for the "big name" product when these are so good.

2.0 out of 5 stars Why a blonde girl on a pink engine, 13 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This makes the right noise and is sturdy. The receipt that came with the whistle says, "2 different designs one with a pink girl driver and one with a blue boy driver as pictured 1 chosen at random. Please Email if you have a preference." There was no such information on the Amazon page and guess what? My grandson got the pink engine with the blonde girl. What's the point in putting the information on the receipt, when you've got what you've got?

2.0 out of 5 stars Great "flash", good for a fancy dress party but..., 12 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This looks the business and it lights up spectacularly. With whirring LEDs in the "plasma chamber" and space noises during the "charging" process before it begins to "fire" with flashing blue lights. Just the job for a grandpa to shoot his unruly grandsons. However, it has only lasted two weeks before dying and failing to be revived by new batteries. So - good for a fancy dress party or stag weekend but useless as a toy to be played with.


Folkmanis Dinosaur Egg Puppet

5.0 out of 5 stars A hit with the grandsons!, 12 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My two grandsons (both about 2yo) love this. With granny working it and voicing it, they are entranced. They enjoy working it themselves, although they are less proficient than granny they have done it no harm. A great toy for toddlers and for older kids into puppetry. No hesitation in recommending.

5.0 out of 5 stars The real stuff! Delightful fragrance., 12 May 2014
Was talked into buying my first bottle of this in the Hermès shop in Avignon a few years ago by the sales lady, my wife and old friend. It's been my scent of choice since then. When that ran out, I replaced it through Amazon. Same quality, same fragrance, good price. The fragrance might not suit everyone, so try in your local shop before you blow £65. This is the real thing and the fragrance lingers.


Schleich - Triceratops Dinosaur
Schleich - Triceratops Dinosaur
Offered by sotel-electronics
Price: £11.11

3.0 out of 5 stars Well made but small, 9 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this, together with two other Schleich dinosaurs for my nephew. This seems out of scale compared with the styracosaurus and the carnotaurus. It is solid and beautifully painted.

Result Childs Peached Polyester Padded Gilet with Concealed Hood
Price: £25.99 - £32.05

3.0 out of 5 stars Expensive in the age 2-3 size., 2 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Reasonably well made and zips all work well. However, it's only polyester, not some high-tech material so that the smallest size (the one bought for my grandson) does not represent value for money at £27!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, brilliant toy, 5 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: B. Symphony in B Music toy (Toy)
I bought two of these at Christmas, one for each 20month grandson. For Grandson1 the product was a dead loss. His only interest was in spoiling his cousin's enjoyment of it.

For grandson2, who goes to weekly baby dance and to baby music once a week, it was a delight. He has played for hours with the function which allows the user to alter the sound of the tune according to the instruments in the orchestra pit at one time.

The model we have survived Christmas and post-Christmas assaults from its lovers and its detractors with no noticeable damage. Nobody loves the design and we have debated endlessly whether the clear plastic casing adds or detracts overall. There is a "secret" compartment that holds all of the pieces. All-in-all this works and for one grandson and hangers-on this could not have been bettered as a Christmas prent.
