Tangle Teezer Brush Salon Elite Professional Detangling Hairbrush Purple
Tangle Teezer Brush Salon Elite Professional Detangling Hairbrush Purple
Price: £8.25

5.0 out of 5 stars Changed our hair-brushing sessions forever! :-), 27 July 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
We have not had a free brush, we paid for it... and we LOVE it !!!
From her being tiny until a couple of weeks ago my daughter (age 8) and i have had HUGE rows about hair-brushing. Conditioners, frizz-tamers, afro combs - nothing made any difference. Hair-brushing was a miserable affair of tugging, pulling, crying and shouting - from us both!
But not any more.
The Tangle Teezer gently picks at knots, and tangles and is almost totally pain-free. no more yelling, no more crying.

To use it successfully on dry hair, we have found, you need to do the following:
1) Give yourself a reasonable amount of time - it doesn't yank through the tangles but undoes them bit by bit, so you need to take it steady.
2) Have a paddle brush handy to smooth things down afterwards - the hair tends to be very floaty and fly-away immediately after brushing.

It works brilliantly on wet hair, as long as you have used conditioner.
Again, because the bristles are quite soft and it takes a while to undo all the knots you will need a sensible amount of time to do a good job - but it will be worth it!

I highly recommend this product to any Mum and daughter (or son) who have battles with flyaway, tangly hair.
Daughter says she would give it five-and-a-half stars if she could!

HUDORA Magenta/ Silber 205 Big Wheel Scooter
HUDORA Magenta/ Silber 205 Big Wheel Scooter
Price: £56.09

5.0 out of 5 stars A very high-quality product at a very reasonable price., 17 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My daughter prefers a scooter to a bike and rides hers when we go on family walks, so we needed to buy her a good scooter that would last her for a good few years. She has outgrown her child-sized one so we wanted something suitable for her to age-group (8 - 12).

This is a fantastic scooter.

It is lightweight but well-made and has a smooth, gliding action and an effective, easy-to-operate brake on the back wheel which also doubles as a mudguard.
It arrived in a cardboard package with a carry-handle in its folded position and it took me less than 5 minutes to work out how to unfold it and set it up. It has a kickstand so can be stored on the stand or folded down again in under a minute to store flat
On a trial run it coped beautifully with our very uneven pavements and with an uneven surface.
My daughter reports that it is comfortable to ride and likes the padded handgrips.
The colour is striking without being impractical.
It has a carry strap and is light enough to be transported like this by an adult; my daughter is 8 and can manoeuvre it around with ease, but might struggle to carry it far.

it was £20 cheaper than other equivalent scooters we looked at online.

Highly recommended to anyone who wants a scooter for an older child that is for actual transport and not for stunt-riding.

Play-Doh DohVinci Keepsake Kit
Play-Doh DohVinci Keepsake Kit
Offered by RedTag Event
Price: £10.29

4.0 out of 5 stars The kit itself is quite sweet. It has four colours and two little projects ..., 29 Dec. 2015
We got this kit for Christmas and have just tried it out.

The Doh Vinci dough itself is quite user-friendly - it wipes off if you go wrong and stays squishy for quite a long time after you have piped it, meaning you can poke it into place if it doesn't quite go where you want it to. It doesn't stick to surfaces or hands.
We kept a bit of kitchen roll handy for wiping the nibs of the pens and dabbing up stray bits off fingers.
My daughter is a fairly bright and capable eight-year-old and she could cope with doing the dots and outlines herself after a bit of practice; spirals are harder and she needed my help with those. We have been working on it together; I suspect an arty nine or ten year old could cope solo.
Once it dries the dough stays slightly springy and the colours stay true.

The kit itself is quite sweet.
It has four colours and two little projects to make, a photo frame and a mirror. There are flowers and hear shapes to practice on and the two projects have guidelines to show you where to put the different lines, shapes and colours.
It's possible to achieve quite pleasing results without being very expert and the overall effect is pretty.

It has kept us occupied for three play-sessions so I would say value for money is pretty good; we have some dough left to try "freestying" with later.

4.0 out of 5 stars Delivery a bit slow but worth the wait, 14 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice little product, would recommend.
Very "pingable" even by quite a small child and not too loud, so the inevitable testing-out not too much of a trial!
Fixes on easily.
Not massively durable but should last with no problems if sensibly used.
For the price, a very nice product.

Two beautiful little patches which arrived carefully packaged and with full, clear and detailed instructions.

I followed the instructions exactly and both patches have worked brilliantly - the pink one onto the skirt of a little dress, the blue one has been turned into a hair-clip for my daughter.

Very pleased - highly recommended!

3.0 out of 5 stars A pretty, distinctive lunch-boxand the stickers were nice, 24 Jan. 2015

A pretty, distinctive lunch-boxand the stickers were nice.
The weak point is the catch, which is very flimsy and, inevitably, broke.
It cannot be repaired, so i would recommend this for an older child (7 upwards) who can take care of it properly.
Unfortunately that would make the capacity a bit small...

The search for the perfect lunchbox goes on...
