Philips Sonicare HX6511/44 EasyClean Sensitive Rec&hellip by Philips Sonicare
4.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Sonicare, 23 July 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is the second Sonicare that I have owned and I would happily keep buying them, as they're about the best electric toothbrush on the market. Not that I will need to buy another, since they tend to be built well and last a long time; something that's true for this latest model.

In fact this Sonicare model is pretty much identical to the older versions. The changes are mostly cosmetic and on the whole they're changes for the better. Gone, for example, are the blue rubbberised sections on the handle which used to become stained and grubby. In their place is a plain white, sleeker finish that should wear better.

If there is a downside its that, because the shapes are wide and flat, they can be inserted in the 'wrong' holes, which somewhat defeats the purpose of a shape 'sorter'. For example 22 month old daughter found it quite easy to slot the crocodile through the hole for pretty much any other animal. This robs the sorter of much of its potential as a learning… Read more
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. This is a valuable learning experience that will be useful as he get's older. Secondly, the inclusion of a pre-fabricated car base unit has since proved… Read more
