This review is from: Feet To Sky [12" VINYL] (Vinyl)
Beautiful songs, two of only six released so far. Doesn't look like there are going to be any more so probably best to get hold go this EP (of sorts) asap. One note though, it's 7" vinyl, not 12" as described...

1.0 out of 5 stars Who knows?, 3 Dec 2013
I'll review this once the illustration (CD-R 80) matches the description (CD-R 90). Bit risky ordering it whichever of the two you want...

This review is from: 40's School girl (Toy)
This is a nice-looking dress but the fabric is fairly nasty. My daughter couldn't have worn it all day at school as it was too itchy/scratchy. The 'bag' is tiny, certainly not big enough to keep anything substantial in nor is it big enough to be a replica gas mask bag. The beret is very much just a shower cap but no less authentic for that. It is cheap in price too though so hard to complain too much. However, one can buy a more authentic and more substantial (and much nicer) outfit here:

Also, it's well worth visiting the 'Resources for Teaching' shopfront (http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/browse.html?ie=UTF8&marketplaceID=A1F83G8C2ARO7P&me=A1LZV1LE44GCWX) for authentic replica extras.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice shade, awkward service, 15 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice enough lampshade for the price. Nice fabric and consistent pattern. Sits a little high on a lamp as the bracket is almost at the bottom. However, beware if you have a problem with it. Mine had what appeared to be a couple of spots of glue dried on to it. This wouldn't be a massive problem but Dove Mill's returns process isn't exemplary. Although clicking on 'return' gives one an address label as per other Amazon items / suppliers, this isn't pre-paid as it should be for a faulty item. Instead, Dove Mill insists that one takes a picture of the item before they'll arrange the return. I can only assume this is to discourage returning items which, frankly, is a shoddy practice when it comes to items they've despatched that were damaged.

Nice tights, well made/finished, thick enough for a cold day. Quite generous sizing though; the 8-10 year old ones I just bought for my 9 year old daughter (about average height) will last her for a couple more Children in Need days!

2.0 out of 5 stars Cheap imitation, 6 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These aren't genuine illoom balloons. They're designed to look like them with closely-copied packaging, which might be an issue given the patents involved. Also, the lights inside aren't as bright as real 'illooms' and don't flash as claimed. Nice idea but avoid until they're made and work properly.

3.0 out of 5 stars fun...-ish, 6 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Does what it says but a bit basic - it's really just an image printed onto a square of thin transparent film. It has no adhesive and isn't that thicker film which adheres to smooth surfaces (like window decals). You're supposed to stick it to your toilet lid with tape but this looks rubbish so I used a little Pritt-stick (which one then has to scrub off afterwards). The film is also folded for delivery so you have creases in it. Finally, the film square is a little larger than a loo lid so you need to trim it but, at the same time, the image is a little small so the effect isn't quite how it looks in the illustration. I appreciate it's a cheap, disposable item which is just a bit of fun but you'd be better off printing your own, frankly.

3.0 out of 5 stars Size, 6 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Perfectly decent doormat. Usual coir matting with a pleasant design but it's not really 40x70. Real size is closer to 39x68, which is fine if the mat stands alone but looks a a bit meagre if it has to fill a standard-size hole in flooring.

4.0 out of 5 stars Happy fish, 25 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A straight replacement for the filter cube that came with our Fluval Chi 25l tank. This one does seem to have a small light within - additional to the original's lamp for lighting the tank. It's not bright enough to disturb in a dark room but adds a pleasant little light to the fountain. Other than that it's an exact match for the old unit so will fit perfectly well onto an existing tank. Product was as advertised, arrived in good time and works.


ARESSON Beach Rounders Set

4.0 out of 5 stars Good set but..., 20 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: ARESSON Beach Rounders Set (Misc.)
You get pretty much what you'd expect: Four posts tapered for use in sand (or lawn), a bat and a ball.

Just be aware that you won't receive exactly the set pictured here but instead the current standard Aresson beach kit (see their web-site for a more representative photo, or the other Amazon listing here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B001T47GJO/ref=oh_details_o01_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1). In this the posts are wooden (not painted so might not last quite as long) and the ball is the plastic softball (not the tennis ball here). Ours was damaged when we received it which is odd given the kit was fine so a bad ball had been packed into it which is poor.

However, you do also get the standard flattie (like a small cricket bat), the bag is nice and sturdy and the set is a good 5 cheaper here than direct from Aresson. I'll update after we've played with it a few times (and when I find out how good Eastern sports are at replacing a dodgy ball!).
