BlackBerry Leather Book Binder Cover for BlackBerry PlayBook - Black
BlackBerry Leather Book Binder Cover for BlackBerry PlayBook - Black
Offered by Lovely Gifts
Price: £6.95

4.0 out of 5 stars Stylish threads for your Playbook., 17 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At the sale price I paid this is a steal. Good quality leather binder with steel insets. Feels nice, looks good and gives a reasonable amount of protection to your device.

Only down side is it wont fit into a fast charge cradle with this on and you need to have it open to get at the power, HDMI and USB connectors.

Very happy with my purchase.


Atul's Curries of the World
Atul's Curries of the World
by Atul Kochhar
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £13.60

5.0 out of 5 stars Tasty Curries from around the World., 4 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Tried a couple of these to date and they've gone down well with the Family.
So far there has been a good mix of straight forward 10min Prep / 20min Cooking to 45min Prep / 30min Cooking.
But all very straight forward to do so far.

Only issue I've had is some of the ingredients are a bit exotic and not found in the supermarket aisles.
Managed to get most of them in the local Chinese supermarket and Halal store.

If you make up some of the required powders in advance then the prep time will drop and they'll be easier to do quickly.
Enjoying working my taste buds round the world of curries.

Would happily buy it again, gets my vote.


LEGO Sponge Bob 3815: Heroic Heroes of the Deep
LEGO Sponge Bob 3815: Heroic Heroes of the Deep
Offered by Toybroker-UK
Price: £24.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Bikini Bottom Super heroes., 4 Mar 2014

You get PLANKTON, buy it now!!! A great little set with SpongeBob, Patrick & the excellent PLANKTON!!! without doubt the best minifigure in the spongebob range.
You get the superdaft Patrick and SpongeBob all done out in their superhero costumes and a neat boat/car but you get PLANKTON in his own personal submersible.

My daughter loves this set and re-enacts the tradition stealing of the Crabbie Patty recipe with great enjoyment. In her version PLANKTON always wins though..

Pros: PLANKTON.
Cons: Just one PLANKTON.


LEGO Super Heroes 76005: Spider-Man Daily Bugle Showdown
LEGO Super Heroes 76005: Spider-Man Daily Bugle Showdown
Price: £31.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Favourite Spiderman set., 4 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not only do you get Spidey but also the iconic Jameson and Dr Doom mini figures. Two other figures also in the set are Beetle and Nova but they go beyond my knowledge of the Spiderman story.
The little jump jet is smart and the Daily Bugle building is a must for any growing lego city which is quite short of good buildings.
It's Lego so it's not cheap but this set is often on offer at the moment so it's not too bad. I reckon this set will be withdrawn soon with the new sets coming out this year so buy it before it's over £50.00 on the bay and private amazon sellers.

Pros: Great figures and a smart building for your Lego City.

Cons: Bit pricey.

5.0 out of 5 stars My first Lego set..., 4 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Another great Lego set (Duplo) for infants. encourages hand eye co-ordination and other skills for the growing mind and body.
Would recommend to any one but keep an eye out for offers as these aren't cheap. They are however good quality and child safe.

Pros: Well made, encourages all sorts of play and development skills in a child.
A good few years play and good resale value on the auction sites.
Safe for small children / toddlers.

Cons: Pricey

LEGO DUPLO 10517: My First Garden
LEGO DUPLO 10517: My First Garden
Offered by Toybroker-UK
Price: £13.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Duplo-tastic, 4 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought as an introduction to lego for my 1yo son. He loves it, slowly getting the hang of putting bricks together but build a tower and he'll knock it to pieces in seconds with squeals of delight.
As with all lego products it's not the cheapest but it is good quality and is safe for a small child to play with (obviously with some parent supervision)

Pros: Good introduction to lego and everything that goes along with that. improved co-ordination motor skills etc.
Cons: Bit pricey - but last well and even has good resale value.


Kent Hand Made Beard and Moustache Comb (81T)
Kent Hand Made Beard and Moustache Comb (81T)
Offered by CPO Trading
Price: £5.21

4.0 out of 5 stars Male Grooming at it's best., 4 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Don't be fooled by the image this comb is in fact tiny. It's well suited to de-crumbing a moustache or beard.
As with all Kent combs it's hand made and has a quality feel to it, treat your facial growth to some proper pampering.

Pros: Quality hand made comb ideally suited for its purpose.

Cons: Has been pinched by my daughter for her dolls.

If you need extra light on what you're doing this is great for occasional use with a 60/100w bulb.
You get what you pay for with quality so I wouldn't rely on it as bedside light etc.
Happy with the purchase.
