Ultranatura Bamberg Series Folding Table Synthetic&hellip by Ultranatura
5.0 out of 5 stars No compromise, 20 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
With a folding table you have to trade a few things against each other - size, sturdiness, weight and cost .- but this Ultranatura model doesn't have any obvious compromises. It is large, at 71 inches long, extremely stable, light (for its size) and comes at a very reasonable price.

Longer tables typically hinge in the middle, and this is usually their weakness, as they tend to bow and you have to avoid placing heavy items in the centre. This one doesn't bow. I placed a heavy lump (my 3 1/2 year old son) on the centre line and it didn't sag at all.

Safety has been considered too, with widely spaced, rubber capped feet, locks on the central hinge, and also gravity… Read more
Braun Oral-B PRO 600 CrossAction Rechargeable Elec&hellip by Oral-B
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a really keenly priced entry-level electric toothbrush from Braun, that drops all the bells and whistles of the expensive models but have the same excellent cleaning power.

Pros
- It cleans very well, with the excellent cross-action head
- Timer with 30-second intervals
- Braun reliability
- Great value price (24.99 at time of writing)

Cons
- Noisy
- Only carries 35 minutes of charge for a 22 hour charge, which means you need to charge it for 2.5 hours a day

Very impressive value with the quality you can rely on from Braun. Five stars.
LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy (PS2) by Activision
5.0 out of 5 stars Still a great game, 18 Aug 2014
I recently acquired an old PS2 for my youngish children, and have picked up a few games. Many show their age - both technology and gameplay have move on a lot since the PS2 came out - but Lego Star Wars is still a brilliant game, and highly accessible for my nine year old daughter and three year old son.

Admittedly the three year old just tags along in 2 player mode, but he loved every minutes.

The game itself is enormous, with many many hours of play in normal game mode, and endless more in free play, with lots of hidden goodies to find. And for the crusty old grown-ups there is some nice Lego humour.

An easy five stars.
