Kid Galaxy Morphibians Killer Whale
Kid Galaxy Morphibians Killer Whale
Price: 19.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for all ages!, 13 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought for a 5 year old and what a great present, played with inside and out and no problems controlling it. Easy and fun and looks good. Seems fairly robust and is stable enough to be driven quite fast around the house without anything being damaged. Lots of fun and really like the fact that it can be used outside too, we took ours for a walk! Highly recommend as they are easy to use, even a 3 year old can manage to just about control it, but do not look young so fun enough for everyone and really great styling, we love the Killer Whale and the Shark. Fab present and a bit different too, can see these being used for years.
Do take a lot of batteries which may be a problem, but so far ours haven't run out, will have to see how long they last.


Pugster February Purple Heart Swarovski Elements Crystal Earrings
Pugster February Purple Heart Swarovski Elements Crystal Earrings
Offered by Pugster
Price: 49.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice earrings shame about the packaging., 12 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The earrings are pretty, better looking in real life than the picture. The purple hearts are a slightly lighter purple shade and much sparklier than the picture suggests. However what lets them down is the packaging which is really poor and makes the earrings look so cheap. I know these are not expensive earrings but the packaging is such a disappointment, I will have to buy a gift box as there is no way I can give these as a gift in their current packaging. So Pugster please can you sort out the packaging, mine was all crumpled and creased so not good for posting and soo cheap looking, not funky or modern just cheap and tacky. But in a little gift box these will look lovely and quite different looking so a great gift.

Price: 5.25

4.0 out of 5 stars Good birthday gift, 12 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought for a childs birthday, nice kit and fun to make but the headbands feel quite flimsy so not sure how long they will last with young children, maybe better for 6+. Good idea though and nice easy gift.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant for colds and glue ear., 27 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My little one has had regular colds and now has glue ear, recommendation made at his hearing test and does seem to be working. So easy to use just a few drops on his pillow or clothes, so far have not noticed any staining and after a few weeks he is definitely hearing better. Smell is strong enough but not overpowering so better than the regular version which is a bit too strong for little ones and probably couldn't drop on their clothes.
So easy to use, bottles will last ages and is working and a bargain too. Brilliant.


Collins Children's World Map (Collins Primary Atlases)
Collins Children's World Map (Collins Primary Atlases)
by Collins Maps
Edition: Map
Price: 3.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Good map, bad stickers, 27 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good map, wish the countries were a little larger but it works okay. Stickers are coming unstuck though, shame they couldn't have just printed the flags at the bottom and given less stickers.
My 5 year old likes it though and had no problem just blutacking it to his wall.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, 27 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lovely tin but the game inside is a little disappointing, just lots of flat cardboard pieces, maybe fine for older children but my 5 year old is very disappointed with how the volcano looks. Just expected better from Playmobil, the game could be so much better than it actually is. He does like the tin so at least he has enjoyed that!


Rita's Tips For Domestic Bliss: How to Live
Rita's Tips For Domestic Bliss: How to Live
by Rita Konig
Edition: Hardcover
Price: 16.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good read, 3 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this for the novelty but I have actually enjoyed reading it and have found some of it useful. Really nice looking book, some of it is ridiculous (buying for staff!!!) but quite a bit that is interesting and helpful.
Probably could find all of these tips in a magazine or online but I still like having this on my shelf and do dip into fairly regularly, it is strangely feel good, feel organised book.
A good buy for February/ March when you feel (or maybe it's just me) a bit disorganised and want everything to be a bit cleaner, tidier and just generally nicer looking, Rita can help!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fab christmas DVD, 3 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We love Olive, such a great Christmas DVD, really funny, looks good keeps my boys interested and I love it too.
Perfect, really great fun to watch and has been enjoyed for quite a few Christmases and will be enjoyed for more to come.
Great for everyone, not just children or families, I bought this before I had children, I enjoyed it and now they are enjoying it with me.


Biscuit Bear
Biscuit Bear

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely book, cannot recommend this highly enough, 3 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Biscuit Bear (Paperback)
This is my 5 year old boys favourite book, we have read it so many times and I had to buy a biscuit bear cutter so we can make our own biscuit bears.
Brilliant illustrations and a great story about a boy who makes a biscuit bear and the adventures the biscuit bear has.
Really is lovely, fun and perfect for bed time as not too exciting but still fun for a 5 year old.
A book to read together and keep forever.


Tana Ramsay's Family Kitchen: Simple and Delicious Recipes for Every Family
Tana Ramsay's Family Kitchen: Simple and Delicious Recipes for Every Family
by Tana Ramsay
Edition: Paperback
Price: 12.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, some good recipes but quite a lot of fussy ones., 3 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have made a few recipes from here, but has spent quite a lot of time on the shelf and wasn't in a rush to repeat the recipes even though they were fine.
There are some simple recipes but a lot of fussy recipes too which just didn't suit either myself or my children, but maybe better if you have older children.
The party bit at the back is quite good, but Fay's family food book, also has this and is in my opinion much better both for the party bit and the actual recipes.
