5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic addition to the Nordic Ware collection!, 20 Mar 2014

Very cute and finely detailed gingerbread house, also suitable for sponges if you follow the release instructions carefully, and superb for turning out finely detailed cake time after time.
They also look stunning together as a collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value, 20 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great value, much cheaper buying from here than your vets surgery, and of course its something that if you need it you'll know what it is.
I would recommend however if your pet is poorly, taking it to the vet first, rather than self medicating from the start, as animal care is incredibly complex; once your vet has advocated/started a course of treatment then youll know to get this from here and what to do with it.


Philips CorePro LED 4 Watt GU10 Energy Saving Bulb, 4 Pack
Philips CorePro LED 4 Watt GU10 Energy Saving Bulb, 4 Pack
Price: 20.45

5.0 out of 5 stars Great light from these, superb in fact., 20 Mar 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I wasn't sure about the light output from these as I've been disappointed before, however I was so pleased with them I bought another 2 sets to finish all the ceiling lights, saving almost 1KW in energy, incredibly, each time that that room is used in lighting alone.
led lights have improved immeasurably over the last few years, and the price has dropped accordingly. 2 years ago each lamp here would have been 25 each, not that for four.
These are GU10,s mainly used for replacing halogen lamps in spotlighting and ceiling spots, identifiable with the solid glass cover over the halogen bulb inside the reflector.
The finish is also worth mentioning, if you are placing these in white spotlights then the bulbs look incredibly stylish, almost disappearing, or looking integral as they are brilliant white, with a cluster of glass nodules over the LED's and of course they also give off no heat, so are great if your lamps are near something flammable, like the top of a cupboard etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly biased here but.....oh wowzers, 20 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you have ever tried jelly Belly jelly beans you'll know that they are simply the best in the world.
These are bulk packaged, for retail I think in sweet shops, more than a domestic setting but when you look at the incredible price, 25 for 1.8Kg's instead of 7 for 200gs commonly found elsewhere you'll see that they are also stunning value.
45 flavours, and comes on the back of the jar with a clear colour chart, and a few ideas for mixing your own 'cocktails' too.
In fact... they are so scrummy I am going to order another jar now, slightly ashamed to admit 3/4 jar gone in three weeks!
Each bean is 3 calories, something that is also very important, and this makes them also rather edible as a treat to have without feeling too guilty.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly scrummy, 20 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One word sums these up: scrumptious!
Not only of course do you get the awesome flavour, but the benefit of a gum too, and dentyne is a very good gum indeed.
Why the UK doesn't sell cinnamon sweets as routinely as in other countries is an absolute mystery, these are absolutely delicious and very more-ish.
A new found favourite!

GREENHOUSE W GLAZING CLIPS PACK 100 [Misc.]
GREENHOUSE W GLAZING CLIPS PACK 100 [Misc.]

5.0 out of 5 stars great replacement clips, 20 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fits all greenhouse glass with clips, if your after clips you'll know what I mean, and this is a great way of getting a bag of clips at a great price.
All clips are the same, so your as well buying these as more expensive smaller branded packeted ones, and it's no bad thing to add a few to hold in the greenhouse glass more firmly, something I think that a lot of owners will have found out over this long, windy winter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great undercoat rake, 20 Mar 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Fantastic for detangling, and de-knoting short to medium length fur, if the coat is very tangled consider using a specialised denkoting tool... for general use this is fantastic.
The build quality is very good, and balances well in the hand, the metal spikes are individually spring mounted, helping the brush to adapt to the animals shape, avoiding painful snagging; something that with experience you will be able to easily deal with.
The smaller comb is fine toothed, and to be honest I've found it of little use, as the dogs I've used the rake on are large; but for a small dog with very fine fur it would be ideal for feathering and ears getting the silky flow that you would be after.
The tool is great though for stripping out dead undercoat and of course doing this yourself means that you save on expensive grooming parlour charges. if you do groom a dog at home yourself you'll build up a small collection of specialised tools that you need to get the salon finish, and, of course, groom regularly and there are dual benefits: a healthy coat on your pet, as well as increased bond between you and your loved one.
In my opinion this brush is aimed more at dogs, though cat use is possible but to be honest i think it's a bit 'overboard' for 99% cats, a rubber hand held brush would be much better and of course easier, though for long haired very docile cats both sides of the brush could be used....With of course caution!
In all, recommended, great for the price, great build quality and easy to use / master!


Koochi Kickstart Group 1 Car Seat (Mix Magenta)
Koochi Kickstart Group 1 Car Seat (Mix Magenta)
Price: 80.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Great quality, 20 Mar 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Great car seat, easy to fit, and secure and provides very good support for your infant. Worth noting its not for newborns, but for 9 months - 4 yrs only, a mistake I made in getting it for a new mum to be!
It is forward and rear facing, can go into the front and rear of the car, and seems very secure indeed.
Its multi adjustable, so can be locked into different positions, so the baby isn't sat up, until its old enough to be able to sit upright, secured in its multi point harness.
Looks to be easily cleaned as well, and is, as others have noted gender neutral, so suitable for a boy or girl, and looks rather smart, in fact rather 'boy racer' in it's styling... which is cute!
There are so many chairs out there; but this one seems to for all the boxes, and its price is fantastic too, something which is very important in those early years.
So, all in all, I'd highly recommend this!

4.0 out of 5 stars Ok but prefer the hand gun version, 19 Feb 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Can't take off more than one star for personal preference really. I just find the hand staple gun less effort and more accurate which is important when in small spaces or near cables. This may just be my ability with a hammer!

It performs well and the staples settle into the wood firmly and unlike the hand gun type you have more control over the depth the staples go into the wood by not hitting as hard, it has quite a weight behind it as you strike and I think I would tire quickly if I had to do a large amount.

It has a good grip and is very solidly made.

The gun also has the benefit of not hitting the piece you are stapling to, therefore allowing fixing on less secure/weaker surfaces. I would worry that covering a wooden frame that couldn't lay flat on the floor - such as a cold frame for polythene - would end in firewood and frustration!
