Bought as a xmas present for my 3 year old son who loves fireman sam.

He regularly does this jigsaw and has started to do quite a few bits buy himself. solid product with clear outlines and easy to pick up where pieces go.

After much searching finally got this product for a reasonable price though had to do with a blue rather than pink as profiteering had meant the pink when available was approx £140.

My daughter who is six quickly learnt and played or read all of the apps games other that came included.

We have just recently registered and used the 3 coins ( value £2.99p each if purchased)
and we got her the disney fairy game which she loves.

what is on there is quite good and my daughter enjoys using but my only gripe is the availability of other games.

At last count i could see 20 more games and some more books. Hiowever these are £2.99 each as stated above and my daughter has quickly got bored with them or did not like what was avaiable as she is to old. she now prefers to play the games on other childrens websites or read actual books.

If you can afford or have available a normal tab ( with parental lock) would allow a lot more variation of games books and other apps to keep kids busy.

The product is a step up from other games products but lacks sensitive swipe my daughter has become frustrated on a number of occasions as the machine does not always respond to touch.

Overall a good product but if you have the money and maybe go for a kindle if just for reading or even a lower grade ( older ) Acer samsung etc or apple tab as kids will quickly get bored with the lack of new games books etc
in the app stores.

5.0 out of 5 stars Otterbox for Nokia N900, 14 Nov 2011

Had my last leather case for about 14 months.
got this one as I had my last phone replace dunder warranty.
Have to say it improves the feel and touch of the phone. I like the fact that everything is accessible as though no cover. Have not dropped the phone too much just yet but it feels sturdy and capable of some big impacts.

Most people have commented on the style of this and when I upgrade next year ( waiting for Galaxy S3 or windows nokia ) will definitely source this make.

Find myself wanting the kids to put this on as find it fantastic, My Daughter has read the book and knows virtually all of the words now and my younger son thinks its fab.

The blu ray is outstanding and Johnny Dep is simply brilliant as Willie Wonka

highly recommended !

5.0 out of 5 stars Shears, 24 May 2011

After much deliberation I plumped for these shears as the reviews stated they were lightweight and have extra power.

We were not disappointed, My wife spent some of the last weekend cutting our hedges with the kids and said it was very straight forward and easy to use with minimal strain. I used it to further cut up branches for disposal and it is very light but cut through with ease. The extra "ratchet" takes this above a lot of other shears.

It was also recommeded in independent tests in the telegraph against much heavier but cheaper alternatives but glad I went for these.
