In My Own Words:
30-something doctor and mother of 2 small children. I read voraciously and try to write helpful reviews with the sort of information I wish I'd had before buying. I taught my son to read a few years ago year and I review the books he reads as well, plus my daughters pre-school books.

Bubble Wrap Hey Bright Eyes (Pack of 3) by Bubble
Set of 3 excellent quality giant muslin cloths, with bubbles/ elephants/ stars designs in bright rainbow colours. Each is a 120x120cm square. They wash brilliantly and dry well either in a tumble dryer or on the line. Not now sure what I did without them as they are so useful. So far ours have been burp cloths, cover-alls for weaning, impromptu picnic blankets, changing mats, pram blankets, pram sun-covers, sun shades, towels... can't remember what else, but LOTS.
These are so useful from birth onwards; we now keep one at all times in the car, the pram, the nursery and the changing bag so one is always to hand (we found 3 wasn't enough!).

My very disappointed son learned a lesson about cheap badly-made toys, and the power of advertising. Not impressed, especially considering that our older version of this Nerf model (the N-strike Maverick; different colour scheme; basically same shape etc) is still going strong. Perhaps the build quality is lower now.
Oral-B Trizone 6000 Smart Series With Bluetooth Te&hellip by Oral-B
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
So, as my 4th electric toothbrush to date, I have to say I'm impressed with this one. It does a great job in all modes, although I probably won't be using most of them that often. It comes with a hard travel case, and spare toothbrush heads. No 3-pin plug, of course, which is a little irritating.
It also comes with a little tray to keep your spare heads in (or those belonging to the rest of the family), into which the charging unit clips. Frankly this is just going to gather dust and limescale in my bathroom.
The bluetooth is a whole area of unnecessary gadgetry, designed for someone with a lot more time to devote to their teeth than me, but it's quite cool nonetheless, and my… Read more
