This review is from: Billionaire Boy (Paperback)
My 13yr old, straight from the Wimpy kid series and hungry for more, tried this out at xmas and loved it - says it keeps your attention....and he loved the characters. He read it in a week - that 100% success as far as I'm concerned..

This review is from: Magic Tree (Toy)
Fascinating wee product that truly works. It took about 24hrs and got loads of attention from the kids - a 24hr little treat as when it's fully developed it slowly crumbles and goes to dust. Perfect stocking filler.

For the price there's fine. The kids loved them. and the mechanism works. Just be aware the sizes are very small - i.e get medium for a 6 yr old. Otherwise - I'd recommend them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb and works out the box, 25 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a briliant bit of kit: You open the box, plug it in, put in your SD card, work the easy to use 2 buttons to select and crop your photo and in around 30 seconds it's all done, and you have a perfect print. I bought it for my elderly mum who is familiar only with the tv remote, and she had it sussed in....well they weren't second, but after a pleasant couple of hours she was up to speed. Intuitive, well designed and gives great results - going to get one for myself too. Very happy.
Ps - there's also a usb connection to attach whatever you want - phone etc.

I didn't think my Leyland Princess could be in any meaningful way enhanced, but I was wrong. These skull caps have just taken it to a whole new level. If I can find the complimentary exhaust trim then...well....watch out ladies!

It's a great looking cover that snaps on well....however it leaves the corners exposed and in a fall the phone would not be protected.....

4.0 out of 5 stars Promises some very interesting musical journeys..., 26 Nov 2013
I've only had it for a few weeks but it's very exciting:
I'm a recorder-family player, and was looking to beef up the sound I make while playing with guitar-players and a drummer.
Here's what to do: On an iphone or ipad get the "Sampletank" app to create sounds (sax, trombone, trumpet,etc). That's about 40 euros. Then you'll need to buy an iRig midi adapter (50 euros) to attach the EWI to your phone or ipad. Next, you'll need a cable to lead out of your phone/ipad headphone socket to either your mixing desk/speakers (or just headphones). Set your EWI to "CH" to control the sampletank app. I've spent the last few weeks working up sax and trombone parts and can clearly see the immense possibilites. The above set up is basic and functional. Next will be to explore the Kontakt software - massive sound library but with a 400 euro price tag. I'll learn my craft on the sampletank first! The EWI seems well built, responds well....can be adjusted to the last detail, but does not come with a case.I've found the ideal solution: an Arquitect's plans carry-case - it's perfect, costs about 10 euros and only needs bubble-wrap to ensure your 700euro EWI is snug and protected. Love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars ...with knobs on., 10 May 2013
Fiona Apple - not a name I was too familiar with, but she has to be one of the coolest people on the planet. There's something about the thrash of noise rumbling along in the background that puts me in mind of Tom Waits....for she is THAT cool. The melodies twist...convulse...and always manage to be beautiful....melancholic. The album beckons play after play....strong voice, punchy words....brave melodies - the album has it all. A brief trawl of her back catalogue tells me I have months of happy exploration ahead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pillow sized fun!, 11 Jan 2013

Bought these for girls aged 2-4 and they loved them. They feel wonderful, are pillow sized, and seem very well made. The designs are fine, not too gaudy, and well sewn too. I was extremely happy watching my nieces genuinely enjoying these toys, in that good old fashioned way - rolling on the floor, imaginitively coming up with little stories etc. They've become firm favourites at bed time too. No batteries/screen or plastic!
