Gibsons Nanette's Cottage and Spirit of Christmas &hellip by Gibsons
1 of 1 people found the following review helpful
Was looking forward to making these puzzles but both sets had missing pieces. Also, the quality was poor with some of the pieces de-laminating straight out of the box. There is a slip inside the box that advises you to return a selection of pieces to the manufacturer in the event that there are any problems. We will be returning them and I will update this review according to the service I get from Gibson's. No reflection on the Amazon seller, the item arrived sealed and unmarked.
Update 18/05/2014 - Got a letter from Gibson's Games apologising for missing pieces.They did express surprise that both puzzles were short but they didn't quibble and they sent me 2 new sets of pieces… Read more
Dremel 3000 Series Multitool with 15 Accessories by Dremel
I wanted a craft drill for my son's model making activities with the added bonus that I'd be able to borrow it for those little household jobs. After reading some scary reviews on various budget drills I was getting despondent. Then, joy of joys, Santa gave my son a Dremel for Christmas. What's more, he told me that it only cost 28. The drill is solid and well made and performs beautifully. At this price you only get a soft case and limited attachments but it's a bargain way to get a quality piece of kit.
Christmas Rocks: The Best of Collection ~ Brian Setzer
As a long time Stray Cats fan I was intrigued to see Brian Setzer's metamorphosis into a band leader. This collection has a varied and interesting mix of rock n roll, jazz and boogie woogie with some classical influences thrown in. Not everything was to my taste but I have to admire the guy's talent. Stand out track for me was a rocking festive adaptation of In The Mood which has got to be guaranteed to get any seasonal party jumping.
