Simon Swipe by Hasbro
Simon Swipe by Hasbro
4.0 out of 5 stars Updated Classic, 2 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've not played Simon for a long time and I thought my 8 year old lad would enjoy playing it.

Firstly he was amused that the game had the same name as his Dad (no, my name isn't Swipe) and secondly he thought that a game I used to play couldn't possibly be any fun. I have to say being a bit of an old bloke I only played using the "classic" settings and we had a great time. He played the "swipe" version with his Mum and again loved it. It's his new favourite gadget, which is great as I can finally get my phone, tablet and laptop from his vice-like grip.

A great, updated (and incredibly loud) version of a classic game.

The shaver tugged at the hairs and it was one of the most uncomfortable electric shaves I've had for a long, long time. I recently tried a Philips Series 3000 which gave… Read more
Ultrasport 2 Players Badminton Set - Orange Ultrasport
4.0 out of 5 stars Good Quality Set, 26 Aug 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
After a Bank Holiday washout we were lucky enough to finally be able to try our Badminton set earlier today.

The set is nicely packaged in it's own bag with the rackets, net, etc. Another reviewer gave this set one start due to a "flimsy net". Admittedly, it's not the strongest, but then again this is a whole set for under 20 so I'm not sure what they expected. The net seemed perfectly adequate for me and certainly worth the money. The net poles are metal and just slot together. just took a couple of minutes.

The racquets themselves are also pretty good quality - we've been using ones from our local Poundshop for a while, so to be fair, anything was going… Read more
