Never Mind the Balkans, Here's Romania by Mike Ormsby

First of all I must say I was quite excited when I saw this book. I thought that I finally found a nice, humorous collection of short stories illustrating Romania, my home country. I'll start with the good parts (which will justify the one star):

TePe Interdental Brush Pink 0.4mm Pack of 6 by TePe
I only started using TePe brushes a few months ago and as the gaps between my teeth are not too wide, the pink brushes are perfect for me.

The pack comes with a handy cap to cover the brush you're using (so maybe you can also take it with you when out at work etc). Also, the price here is lower than any other offered by high street chains.

As it is made of plastic I think it is particularly useful for babies as they like chewing everything and the traditional book would get spoilt. The lights and songs are very attractive too, but the only downside is that you can't control them. As there is no off button or volume control you can not instantly stop the music. However, I use it at home and only have one child so it works fine… Read more
