Heavy Duty Plastic Waterproof Pet Dog/Cat Bed Basket Available in 4 Sizes
Heavy Duty Plastic Waterproof Pet Dog/Cat Bed Basket Available in 4 Sizes
Offered by YourEverydayStuff
Price: £14.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Smaller than expected but hard-wearing for chewers, 7 July 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Sturdy product, although not big enough for our German Shepherd (who is on the small side for his breed) to lie comfortably in. Even with his blankets in it like a nest, he avoids it. Fine for a collie, probably.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to assemble, lightweight and sturdy, 7 July 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Easy to assemble and sturdier than expected. The dog really likes it, which is a plus! Bought because he chewed every other soft bed and avoids the plastic bed like crazy, this seems to do the trick. The frame was a little scuffed, which seems a bit odd as it came in a thin cardboard box, so it seems like it would have been scuffed before it was packaged. Other than that it assembled fine and is perfectly safe. Arrived quickly. Good product so far.

AB Crystal 'Leaping Frog' Pendant Necklace In Rhodium Plated Metal - 40cm Length & 4cm Extension

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty piece though potentially overpriced, 14 Jun. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It was slightly smaller than I imagined it to be - my own fault, honestly - and the chain a little shorter, but it's a very pretty necklace. The recipient was very pleased with it. It's not an obnoxious size, which makes it an interesting piece to wear and it has a delicate and elegant appearance. Quite pleased. Not sure it's quite worth £8-9 but it's very pretty. The image doesn't do it justice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice addition to any wardrobe, 14 Jun. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a large-chested woman, the dress is a perfect fit and very comfortable. It's slightly shorter than I expected - I am slightly shorter than average, so I imagine on a taller woman it would seem even smaller. However, it's still comfortable to wear, if a little heavier (thicker) than expected. The red dye in the fabric does tend to run, however. I would only wash this item with other reds, dark clothes, towels, or by itself on a hand wash/cold wash. Colour run doesn't appear to affect the quality of the item, however; it's still as vibrant as it was when I received it. As the colour continues to run after multiple washes (I wear the dress frequently; it's a good casual item), it's only deserving of 4 stars, but in any case, it also deserves a place in anyone's wardrobe or t-shirt drawer.

Perfect fit, supports all the wobbly bits in the water just fine. Best swimming costume I've ever owned.

4.0 out of 5 stars Soft, cosy, warm, but stitching not excellent, 30 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Soft and cosy, delivered in good time. Fleece and wool seems good quality, but less impressed by the stitching of the bottom. Puppies who like to chew/destructive dogs will decimate the bottom of the bed in seconds. Still, decent for the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for medium sized dogs/large puppies with calm temperaments!, 30 Sept. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good crate, lightweight, easy to fold and set up. Spacious, decent size for a medium sized dog or a large puppy. However, with use (ie, puppy throwing tantrums) it can get warped or damaged. Still, it's lasted for a good 7 weeks! Still standing, and can also house a decent dog bed. Delivered in good time.

Decent clicker, good for the price, however they don't always click correctly - if the button is pressed in at even a slightly skewed angle, no click is produced. Delivered in good time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Professor Layton and the Willing Suspension of Disbelief, 8 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In the second installment of the Professor Layton series, the eponymous scholar and his self-proclaimed apprentice receive a troubling letter from Dr. Andrew Schrader, the mentor to our gentlemanly hero. The letter tells of a box which is thought to kill anyone who opens it. Believing he has the answer as to why, the doctor plans to open the box. The worried duo rush to his aid, only to find him dead at the scene. The only clues to the doctor's line of thinking before he opened the box is a strange unmarked train ticket, and the mysterious box itself.

A beautiful story with lots of twists and turns, packed with puzzles that will have you scratching your head and wishing you hadn't wasted your last hint coin, Professor Layton and Pandora's Box is an interesting sequel to the Curious Village tale. However, if you're not satisfied by throwaway explanations for bizarre phenomena and have difficulty suspending your disbelief, you might not enjoy this one so much. If you like action and swordfights, take a trip on the Molentary Express!

As before, there are extras once the game is completed, as well as little mini-games for play during the game itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Professor Layton and the Enchanting First Installment, 8 Jan. 2014
The first in the series, though the fourth chronologically, Professor Layton and the Curious Village is no less fun six years after its European release. Though markedly less grandiose in detail and plot depth than the three (four counting the movie) part arc of the prequels, Curious Village remains a challenging, captivating game.

The plot centres around St. Mystere, a quiet and remote village which has had a terrible loss. The beloved Baron Reinhold has passed away. Despite being very wealthy, however, he has given nothing to his family. In steps Professor Layton. Not to solve a simple inheritance dispute, though. Rather, because of the curious way in which the Baron is dishing his fortune out. Whosoever finds a treasure named the Golden Apple within the village will be deemed worthy to claim the entire fortune. But the Golden Apple has proved hard to find for many a hopeful heir...

Even after finishing the game, there are several other challenges to beat, and the bonus material (character profiles, soundtrack, cutscenes) is cute and fun. The cutscenes in Curious Village are as beautiful as those in the prequel series, and in some cases are also longer and more interesting to watch.

If you've played this before, now is the time to go back and relive the beauty and suspense of the very first Layton game. If you are a newcomer to the first games or indeed the series at all, it's a perfect point to begin.
