5.0 out of 5 stars No problems to report, 9 Jun. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I've tried this with a few devices (TV to PVR and DVD, computer to monitor), and it's worked well in each case and gives as good a picture as any other good cable I've tried. It all feels well made, and certainly looks the part. The only niggle was the plastic packaging, which you'll need a strong pair of scissors to open.

2.0 out of 5 stars No English instructions, limited tree protection, 5 Jun. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Slacklining looks great fun, and I was really looking forward to trying it. Unfortunately, the instruction booklet for setting this up is in German, French and Italian, and not in English. Consequently, I'm unsure if I have set it up safely or without risking damage or unnecessary stress to the components.

The included tree protectors are narrow and thin, and seem to add little protection to the trees. The International Slackline Association has produced guidelines and recommendations for tree protectors and tree-slings, which you can find on their website - a good source of advice if you are thinking of taking up this sport.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice hole punch, though the confetti cover is tight, 4 Jun. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This hole punch performs well, whether punching one sheet or a few. The sheet size guard is particularly good; having clear, easy to see lettering. The punch looks stylish. My only quibble is that the confetti cover is a little tight and stiff to open (though I'm sure this will ease with use).

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice design, but I wish the plastic was thicker, 4 Jun. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The pattern, colour and shape are great, but they are quite thin, so I'm not sure how many years they will last. The thin plastic is slightly translucent, so you can often see the shadow of the soil filling, which tarnishes their look a little.

When Execution Isn't Enough: Decoding Inspirational Leadership
When Execution Isn't Enough: Decoding Inspirational Leadership
by Claudio Feser
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £19.60

3.0 out of 5 stars Probably good, but too fragmented for me, 31 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This book didn't work for me. I'm sure, judging from the professional reviews, that this book offers some great insights and advice. But personally I found the book rather fragmented and often over complicating matters. Even the interleaved case study contained lots of detail that seemed extraneous. I tried to digest this book a couple of times, and generally enjoy this type of book. Sorry.

Design Toscano Java, the Bashful Orangutan Statue

5.0 out of 5 stars You made me love you..., 27 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It’s pot-bellied, oddly proportioned, and my kids think it looks more like a sad Yeti than a bashful Orangutan. Before it arrived, I felt there was strong chance I might hate it… But now it’s in my garden, I find myself feeling very attached to it. It adds a little humour and curiosity to the garden, yet isn’t overbearing.

Its colouring blends in well with garden furniture and plants. It's light weight, so is easy to move around, and seems well balanced, standing steady and upright on its large feet. The instructions advise taking the statue indoors in extremely inclement weather and freezing temperatures. That’s easily done; although the statue is large enough not to look lost when stood on the floor, it’s still compact enough to fit snugly in a small conservatory, shed or hallway.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cheap ink pen that works well, 27 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The performance of this ink pen is good. The ink flows evenly, and the nib writes smoothly - there was no scratching on the paper.

On the down side, the pen is very light weight, and feels a little top-heavy if used with the cap attached to the top. I also feel that the cap looks to be rather brittle plastic - I wouldn't be surprised if that cracked after a few month use. These, though are minor niggles, and certainly not deal-breakers, especially considering the cheap price.

I'm not sure if children still use pen and ink; but if they do, this would be a great choice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fine pair of trousers, 19 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Overall these are a fine pair of trousers for kids - they also go well with the available matching jacket. Nice for play, and an instant costume for fancy dress.

The cut is a bit odd - fairly tight legs and saggy bottom and large waist; the drawstring will need to be tied for these trousers to stay up. My only other niggle is that these are non- tumble dry.
