Hozelock AquaStop Connector PLUS (12.5mm & 15mm)
Hozelock AquaStop Connector PLUS (12.5mm & 15mm)
Price: £4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Work better than any other couplings - simples, 17 July 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Hozelock's sprinklers may be of dubious reliability, but their couplings are (IMHO) the tops. Over the years, I've tried a seemingly endless array of plastic and brass hose couplings from a range of manufacturers, but none have worked as well as Hozelock. I happen to have a large garden, with three outside taps, many lengths of hose and very thirsty lawns - an Aquastop coupling on each end of each segment of hose has been one of the best investments I've made, saving me endless leg miles and hours of time. And Aquastop couplings don't blow off like other couplings tend to do, giving me peace of mind that I won't suddenly discover a burst line, a new and unwanted pond and a colossal water bill.

Hangerworld Pack of 50 White Metal Wire Clothes Coat Garment Hangers Hooks Plain - 41cm(16in)
Offered by Hangerworld
Price: £10.65

5.0 out of 5 stars Top quality, as usual with hangerworld, 17 July 2017
Over the years, I've bought numerous wooden, plastic and wire hangers from Hangerworld - I've never been disappointed. These wire hangers may be basic, but they work extremely well: the white coating makes it easy to slip clothes on and off, and the hangers are wide enough to give proper support to the shoulders of men's shirts, and to stop shirts from sliding off the hangers. The steel wire is strong enough to help maintain hanger shape and stop them going 'wobbly'. Excellent value.

Pack of 2 Extra Tough Wooden Nail Brush With Firm Cactus Bristles
Offered by homeshop3000
Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Scrub out mud without cutting the skin under your nails, 17 July 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
OK, so you can buy a nail brush with nylon bristles for less – but these cactus bristles are worth every extra penny. Will scrub out mud after a day of heavy gardening, without cutting the skin under your nails or leaving you with raw fingers. The wood handle is easy to grip and big enough for large hands to hold comfortably.

4.0 out of 5 stars Look good, work well, but short life, 17 July 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Look good, work well, but relatively short life - frayed after two weeks, worn out after three. Bought multiple pairs; same result with all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Neat, clever and very useful, 10 Jun. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Neat, clever, and very useful. Adapts UK 3-pin to 2-round-pin or 2-flat-pin, or vice-versa. Light, well made, and it all slots together in one neat little package not much bigger than a 2-inch cube. Somebody with an ingenious mind put a lot of thought into this. Ideal for business or holiday travel. Oh, and I ordered two adaptors for next day delivery and they really did arrive by courier within 24 hours. Five gold stars.


Jug Plastic - 6 Pint (3 Litre) - Large Strong Heavy Duty Food Grade
Jug Plastic - 6 Pint (3 Litre) - Large Strong Heavy Duty Food Grade
Offered by BiggerJugs
Price: £8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what the description says - a large, strong, 3-litre plastic jug, 19 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Exactly what the description says - a large, strong, 3-litre plastic jug. I bought three, primarily to refill the many bird feeding stations around our garden. The jugs are reassuringly sturdy, and sufficiently see-through to view the level of the contents. The handles are big enough to accommodate male size-10 hands comfortably - with no rough edges. The handle is strong enough to use the jug vigorously as a scoop without the handle breaking off. The jugs nest up to the base of the handle, and can be stacked snugly, three or four high when empty. The snug fit is useful in the rain, as an empty jug can be stacked on top of a full one to keep the contents dry. The spout works well, and will happily pour seeds, or other granular contents, as well as fluids.

2.0 out of 5 stars NOT A UK PLUG - poorly written instructions, 19 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can't comment on whether, or how well the machine might operate, but I can say that it did NOT come with a UK 3-pin plug - the plug and adapter is a one-piece item, and arrived with a moulded EU 2-pin plug.
I'm not sure whether Amazon is breaking the law by selling electrical goods in the UK without the correct moulded UK 3-pin plug - particularly a child's toy - but it's certainly destined to break a few children's hearts.
The instruction book, as others have already noted, is printed in very small type, with each sentence in multiple languages - it would have simpler, and easier to understand had the booklet had a separate section for each language.
The lack of correct UK plug was particularly disappointing, as the item was ordered 'Next Day Delivery' (extra £8.99), so there's no time to obtain a replacement UK mains adapter.
I very rarely write negative reviews, but this was a bad fail, Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Approaches Perfection, 7 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love liquorice and I love aniseed.
My problem is that all the liquorice that I’ve tried so far (and, believe me, I‘ve been sampling the stuff for many, many years – since the 1940’s, in fact) either tastes like dark treacle rather than liquorice, or it has no aniseed, or it’s too hard, or it’s too soft, or it’s just cloyingly, stickily sweet.

Well – Henry Goodes liquorice approaches perfection. It tastes of liquorice, not dark treacle; it’s soft but not too soft; it’s sweet but not too sweet, and there is a genuine whiff of aniseed. If I were to be ultra-picky, I’d have to say that I’d prefer a slightly stronger whiff of aniseed, and I’d prefer slightly less sweetness. But that’s just my own pernickety taste buds. This is still very nice liquorice – in fact, it’s so nice I’ve had to hide the bags in the garage to stop me gobbling the lot in one afternoon of glorious self-indulgence.

The packet isn’t re-sealable – but who needs to re-seal it? Just chew and revel in it.

I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to try Henry Goodes liquorice, but I’m very glad that I finally did. A big thank you to all the 25 reviewers who awarded Henry Goodes 5 stars and persuaded me to buy and try.

4.0 out of 5 stars decent quality, albeit not quite thrilling or perfect, 7 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Broadly, good quality. IMHO, the picture provides a fair and accurate illustration. The considerable majority of the Brazil nuts, 85-90%, were fresh and cream coloured, with some or most of the delicate light brown skin still in place. A minority, perhaps 10-15%, appeared to have been in storage for some time, and had darkened and begun to dry out with age. Almost all nuts were whole – very few broken or damaged nuts. I didn’t come across any that actually tasted ‘bad’, although the older nuts had lost some of the solid ‘crunchy’ texture of fresh Brazil nuts, and felt and tasted a little woolly when bitten. All in all, I'd describe them as 'decent quality, albeit not quite thrilling or perfect'.
