Graco Snuggle Swing (Benny & Bell) by Graco
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A tough one to rate because, in my opinion, there are a few big negatives but while they are irritating things, they don't get in the way of the day to day usage product too much.

The first thing I noticed when the swing arrived is that it's pretty heavy. It comes in quite a small box for what it is which means there's some assembly required (which seems to be the norm with Graco products). The instructions are just diagrams so as to make them suitable for all languages and mostly easy to follow but some parts could be made clearer. I assume they make them this way to save paper but the swing actually came with three identical instruction booklets so they still have a little work… Read more
Kent's Kitchen Meal Kits Red Thai 65 g (Pack of 4) by Kent's Kitchen
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Do you need more than the fact that after I cooked it, my wife went on Facebook and posted "Impressed with Matt 's cooking skills again this fine Thursday...Thai Red Curry...delicious!"? Well, if you do, here goes...

I received four kits, each containing three small pots. One is garlic oil, one is curry paste and the… Read more
Disney Frozen Ice Skating Elsa Doll by Disney Frozen

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Whether a young girl has seen the relevant Disney movie or not, they always seem obsessed with the accompanying princess paraphernalia. My daughter is no different. She is also not different in the fact that now she has seen Frozen, it is one of her favourite films and she tries to sing along as soon as she hears the songs.

I mention all this because, at the age of three, she's not overly bothered about pushing Elsa around to recreate the ice skating. She is able to do it but she is just as happy doing her own thing with the doll, including trying to give her a bath in the doll house (despite Elsa being four times larger than the bath).

You do really need a flat… Read more
