Elefun and Friends Mousetrap by Hasbro
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This takes me right back to my own youth when we used to love playing Mouse Trap at my grandparents' house. There are no games quite like this one that encapsulate the Heath Robinson world of mad machinery into its mechanics. Every time the trap comes down on someone's mouse it's entertaining, no matter how old you are. I play this with my 5 y/o daughter and 4 y/o son and they both absolutely love it. Both are capable of setting it up from scratch (which I wasn't expecting) and it's survived their less than careful treatment without anything breaking or snapping.

Big Grip Ladder Stabiliser by Burton Wire
4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good, 5 Sep 2014
Unfortunately the unit I was sent had a M8 Nyloc nut missing from it. Luckily I keep such things in stock, so not a huge problem for me. Just a bit annoying. As a ladder stabiliser, you won't go wrong with this. Able to get it perfectly level left to right so both ladder feet are squarely planted. Rubber feet are very grippy and ball jointed so that they are always flat on the ground. Only the single rivet holding the securing strap is a little poorly designed - it could do with a washer to prevent it pulling through the strap. Good purchase.
5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Product, 5 Sep 2014
Bought two of these to secure a garden awning. Was amazed that they went so easily into my stony soil. Incredible holding force once driven home. Can't imagine anything short of a hurricane pulling them loose. Easy to remove, too. Construction is very robust indeed, with nice chunky welds holding the ring to the screw. No way they're going to fall apart. Fantastic product.
