Playmobil 5135 Large Pirate Ship by Playmobil
3 of 5 people found the following review helpful
I had one of these when I was a boy and really wanted a new one. My four your old son gave me the perfect excuse. It's a excellent toy and he loves it. Playmobil is generally good but this particular item is exceptional - as it must be if I remembered it a quarter of a century later. High quality product - I remember a few bits breaking eventually but nothing that stops enjoyment. No sign of any damage after my four year old has been playing with it daily for several weeks. Floats in the paddling pool, too - which some playmobil boats don't. The cannons are a notable improvement on the old version, otherwise not much has changed.

I ordered two ot these bulbs following previous satisfiactory puschases of LED lights. Unfortunately, wehn they arrived they had not been well packed at all - no box, just a layer of parcel paper and sellotape. What can out of the box was not two bulbs but a mess of glass fragments that took half an hour to carefully hoover and pick off the floor. Are the lights any good? I don't know, they may be. But the units I received were just a hazard due to the astonishingly poor packing of fragile glass items. I requested a refund but, despite a request for a photograph which I supplied, I am still waiting for the refund over a month later. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend this company.

Bought these to replace halogen lights in our kitchen - 6x 50W halogen bulbs were proving expensive to run, plus of course they don't last long at all so I was constantly replacing them. Having bought another manufacturer's LED bulb for another room and been disapointed, I thought I'd try replacing 2 of the 6 bulbs with these.

The light provided is virtually identical in brightness (if anything very slightly brighter), the colour of the light is very slightly different to the halogens, but neither better nor worse. We are very pleased with the light quality. The build quality is also good and much better than some other LEDs I've looked at. They fit perfectly in the space for the… Read more
