3.0 out of 5 stars Slightly heavy but durable iPad cover, 1 Jun. 2015

Does the job of protecting my iPad Ok but does make it rather heavy, which somewhat defeats one of the advantages of an iPad!

Hozelock Garden Sprayer Extension Lance
Hozelock Garden Sprayer Extension Lance
Price: £6.95

3.0 out of 5 stars Expensive, but necessary, attachement, 1 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Seems expensive for what is little more than a plastic tube and a couple of connectors, but essential for being able to spray weeds in large areas. Should definitely be included with the 7L sprayer as the one provided is short and causes backache by having to bend to reach under trees etc.

All Nailoid products are superb and do exactly as they promise. Have never found any other brand so brilliant at restoring weak or damaged nails. Just wish I could still buy them locally, instead of online and having to pay postage!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not needed to use the book since so it was rather a waste of money, 1 Jun. 2015

Bought by a first-time iPad user and it was helpful at first. Then I found I could get all the same information, free, online by downloading the iPad manual!. Not needed to use the book since so it was rather a waste of money.

This is a superbly made and colourful jigsaw which my grandson loves, even though it is a bit tricky for him to do my himself. The tray makes it easier to locate the edge pieces and prevents the puzzle move about.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unusual construction set!, 1 Jun. 2015

This review is from: HABA Animal Upon Animal Game (Toy)
Very much enjoyed as a 'construction set' by 4 year old Grandson who preferred building up towers of animals rather than playing the game.

4.0 out of 5 stars A puzzle to assemble!, 1 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Haven't used it yet but this seems like a well-made sturdy sprayer. However, it has very poor assembly instructions with only black and white photos and no text! The individual parts should at least be labelled so you can see which ones are being put together. It took over half an hour to work it out and, at one point, I was convinced there were some parts missing. This is very poor for a British company - Ikea furniture was easier to put together than this sprayer!

2.0 out of 5 stars A great disappointment, 28 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have every single one of Peter Robinson's Inspector Banks books on my shelf and have read them all so far with great enjoyment. I always look forward to a new Banks book with great anticipation. So it was very disappointing to find that this book is so unlike the earlier ones. I found it boring, with little action and long-winded introspective diatribes on politics, drugs, student life and the past. None of the characters seem as likable as before, they have all become snappy and bad-tempered. The constant references to music tracks have become very tedious. The same goes for the somewhat self-conscious references to recent TV programmes which seem to be put in just to show Robinson is up-to-date with British culture. Where are the descriptions of the beautiful Yorkshire countryside that used Children of the Revolution: The 21st DCI Banks Mystery (Inspector Banks 21)to make the books so enjoyable? Like many other true Inspector Banks fans I found the TV series a disaster and the normally brilliant Stephen Tompkinson, one of my favourite actors, totally unlike the Banks of the books - in either looks or character. Could it be that Robinson is now trying to write TV scripts rather than a jolly good, un-put-downable book? I do hope not, and I hope that the next outing for Alan Banks will revert to the previous style and quality

This review is from: BRIO Collapsing Bridge (Toy)
My 3 year old grandson (and his older brother) loved this collapsing bridge added to the rest of their wooden railway layout. He had great fun making the bridge collapse and the trains fall down. Beautifully made, as are all Brio toys.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very gentle haircolourant, 3 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This hair colour may be more expensive than most but is very gentle on the hair and gives a beautiful finish. There is no horrid ammonia smell and the colour I chose, Ash Blonde, gave exactly the result I wanted. A medium Ash blond with absolutely no red tones. Make sure you use the included conditioner as it leaves the hair very shiny and easy to manage.
