LEGO Juniors 10667: Construction by LEGO
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My son is 4 years old and has been playing with proper LEGO (rather than Duplo) for more than a year. To say that it is favourite toy would be an understatement; its all he wants to play with most of the time, and his construction skills are improving rapidly.

This was the first LEGO Juniors set we had given him, and it went down a storm. For a start he was able, with minimal supervision, to build the various models by himself following the instructions; something that is currently beyond him on more complicated LEGO sets.

Case Logic Backpack for 10-15 inch Cadence/Tablet &hellip by Case Logic
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
If you're looking for a no frills backpack to carry your computer and other belongings in then this will do the job.

Reasonably voluminous and with various internal and external pockets, it will carry a netbook or smaller laptop, cables, peripherals and a couple of decent sized books comfortably. Its reasonay well built and the straps feel secure, although it a little light on protective padding.

Its also not going to won any prizes for style. Frankly it could best be described as functional on appearance and at worst as cheap looking. Cool it is not.

So if you're you're looking for something basic that does the job this will probably be good enough, but… Read more
