H2D iR Ionic and Infrared Professional Hair Dryer by H2D
5.0 out of 5 stars Pro quality dryer., 15 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I haven't owned a hairdryer since my goth days in the early 80s, but have long hair again now as the most visible evidence of an ongoing midlife crisis, so was on the market for anything to make my thinning barnet look a bit more frou-frou.

Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes Mr Tumble Soft Toy&hellip by Golden Bear
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
On the plus side, this is a very well-madesoft toy, attractive in a sort of retro, Enid Blyton way, and it got a big grin from my one-year old when it was presented to him, though he's not familiar with the TV show. It would make an impressive birthday or Christmas gift.

The minus points are really all to do with the electronic interactivity. If one presses the titular head, shoulders knees and toes in sequence, one is rewarded with a (slightly dalek-y) rendition of the song and Mr. Tumbles bow tie lighting up. However, the sequence is recorded by buttons under the plush, rather than by just touching the area, and they actually need quite a firm press, Certainly, this is a… Read more
