Lamy Z24 Ink Cartridge Convertor
Lamy Z24 Ink Cartridge Convertor
Offered by C-GEAR
Price: 3.10

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to fit, 15 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Went in easily and works well, a really simple to fill twisting mechanism which i haven't come across before. The red section is furthest from the pen nib, that's the part you twist to fill (i had to look it up!)


Lamy "Safari" Fountain Pen Shiny Black Broad Nib
Lamy "Safari" Fountain Pen Shiny Black Broad Nib
Offered by Europens
Price: 13.90

5.0 out of 5 stars Great nib, 15 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wow, instantly impressed by the scratchless smoothness of this. Like other reviewers I have used many fountain pens before but this is the easiest to write with. The barrel is an unimpressive shiny plastic which explains the price. I will keep this in my bag, but think about getting a better metal barrelled version for at home where I am less likely to lose it. I like the broad nib as my writing looks bold but it probably wouldn't suit if you have small writing

Mystical Fire x 3 Sachets
Offered by CKB LTD
Price: 4.69

5.0 out of 5 stars Fire sprites in a sachet, 15 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mystical Fire x 3 Sachets
These are great, very colourful and last an hour or so (although the first 30 minutes is the most colourful). I have so far tried them in an open fire but they are most impressive in our wood burning stove.


Days with Frog and Toad (I Can Read)
Days with Frog and Toad (I Can Read)
by Arnold Lobel
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Most excellent stories, 15 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I cannot fault Frog and Toad, the stories are well crafted, beautifully told and speak loudly of kindness and good sense. My son has enjoyed them all since he was 3 and asks for them repeatedly. He is now 4 and can read most of the words himself, but I read them to him as they are a shared pleasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fine collection, 9 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is a pictorial account of Norman Stevens' spoon collection project. It is basically spoon porn for people who like looking at hand carved spoons. There are some very VERY good spoons here from many of the world's best and most well known carvers, and it is a fine collection. My copy is a softback 'coffee table' sized book if you know what I mean, about A4 size, and it is not thick. Clearly I could use double the amount of spoon photos to look at but I imagine this is where his collection was when he decided to publish. Very nice.


Pirate Party Treasure Map Napkins
Pirate Party Treasure Map Napkins
Offered by Brighton Party Company
Price: 2.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for Pirates, 9 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Perfect for my requirements, a kids pirate party. Much better than the ubiquitous cartoon pirate tableware which you can find everywhere they encouraged a bit of imaginative play. When opened out the design is the same treasure map repeated 4 times, 2 with a compass. In theory you could divide them into 4 small pieces to line a small cake box for example. Reasonable quality.


100 Glow Sticks in Mixed Colours & 100 Bracelets Connectors
100 Glow Sticks in Mixed Colours & 100 Bracelets Connectors
Offered by glowsticks
Price: 5.29

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor glow, 9 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In comparison with other glow sticks these are pretty dim and I wouldn't buy them again. The mix of colours is standard, with the usual small proportion of ones which don't work at all (fewer than 10%: I suspect these are the ones which are supposed to be 'white' as there were none of those, there never are!). These ones are cheap (ish) but not bright enough to be impressive, although they were still glowing faintly after 24 hours which they don't usually do so maybe they are a different set of chemicals from normal (for reference they were labelled Ruieguang made in China).

5.0 out of 5 stars Favourite Toy, 9 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For my 4 year old's birthday, this was by far his favourite present. I took others' advice about printing more forms and scanned and created a file of the items for printing off later. My only improvement would have been a small till or box to keep the money in.

Just as described, easy to apply and looked great. I used a small artists brush and found that two coats was ideal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good, 9 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are pretty good, nice and bright and come with some connectors for making glasses, glow balls/flowers, bracelets and so on. They lose a star because a small number failed to glow (I've come to expect this from various sources and to be fair it was only perhaps 5 out of the 100) but also because about 5 of them leaked. I don't think there is anything too horrendous in there, and it's quite cool to see the liquid, but one of them did squirt in my kids face and that is definitely not a good thing.
