Smiths Snacks Variety Box (30 Bags)
Smiths Snacks Variety Box (30 Bags)
Offered by Moreton Gifts
Price: £13.99

5.0 out of 5 stars 30 pack box, 22 Jun. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
30 PACKS
========
There are 30 packs of crisps and they include a good variety of the Smiths range. (part of Walkers)

WHAT'S IN THE BOX
=================
8 bags of Chipsticks
8 bags of Frazzles
8 bags of Snaps
3 bags of Scampi Flavoured Fries
3 bags of Bacon Flavoured Fries

RANGE
======
As with all multi-packs some of the range I love, and some are the pack left until you're desperate.

SMALL PACKS
============
I'll tack for example the Frazzles. These can often come in various sizes. The pack I remember as a kid was 43g. The small packs I buy in the shops are often 23g, whilst these are 18g.
So they are the size for this: Crisps for this

BIGGER
=======
You can get bigger packs here. Frazzles 43 g (Pack of 30)


My Amazing Body Machine: A colourful visual guide to how your body works
My Amazing Body Machine: A colourful visual guide to how your body works

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing, 22 Jun. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A very visual book about the human body.

I didn't know that there are 29 bones in your head including six tiny ear bones that help you hear. It follows the structure of the body, the respiratory system,and reproductive bits.

For children and adults alike I think this is one of the best 'human body' books I've come across. Although it's a book that answers lots of questions, it also creates lots of questions for enquiring minds.

Artwork
======
The artwork is really nice. Clear, bright, and beautiful.


3M High Security Privacy Filter - Gold - Frameless - 15.4 inch Widescreen
3M High Security Privacy Filter - Gold - Frameless - 15.4 inch Widescreen
Price: £47.90

5.0 out of 5 stars one of the best, 22 Jun. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
FILTER
=======
We have a few gadgets around the house in our family and so I was quite pleased to try out this privacy screen.

This is designed for the shape of a generic 15.4" laptop. As such it doesn't look as smart as the ones that are specific for an individual laptops.

USE
====
I like to read on the train and I hate when I can feel people peer over my shoulder.

The concept is similar to the screens some offices have: You can read straight ahead, but for a neighbour it's impossible.

There's a niche for people who need their privacy and this fulfils that niche.

SECURE
=======
I've noticed in some industries there is a need for additional security, such as if you work in finance, have clients in defence or have commercially sensitive work on your laptop. This effectively means your neighbour can't see what you're working on.

No problems so far, I'll update the review if it develops any issues.


Design Toscano "Harmony At Ease Angel" Statue - Silver
Design Toscano "Harmony At Ease Angel" Statue - Silver
Price: £198.11

5.0 out of 5 stars she's lovely, 22 Jun. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
HEAVY
======
You may need two people to move this. It's a solid piece of loveliness. A beautiful and great statue from the statue company, "Design Toscano."

STONE
=======
It's made of resin but this angel could not look more like stone if it were stone. It's solid, made of a sturdy resin and has some solid build to it. So far it's survived all the weather elements: rain, snow and very hot weather.

ARTY
=====
It's not tacky as some of these statues can be, she's beautiful and pretty with a great amount of detail. Overall she's very well designed.

DETAIL
======
The detail is amazing. I've had her by the fireplace, and she's presently in the garden.

OTHER
=======
She's heavy enough to also be used as a memorial.

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
GOOD RANGE
============
Overall these offer a good range of bright colours at a reasonable price.
In comparing them to steadtler I think these are slightly better as the staedlers are a little scratchy.
They also are in a handy little wrap which is actually quite attractive.

BLEED
======
They do a little. With thick paper they're a little better.

GENERAL
========
I have used them for colouring and found them good for general writing, drawing and have found they last for ages.

PROS
=====
Don't bleed if you have thick paper
No smear
Long life
No dry out if you leave the cap off for a few hours.
Not scratchy
Good range of colours
Light and well balanced.
Wrap is nice
Easy to pack away

CONS
=====
Could feel a bit uncomfortable after a few hours use.

OVERALL
========
A nice set of pens.

Lower East Men's Le226 Swim Shorts, Black, Large
Price: £13.95

5.0 out of 5 stars tight trunks, 19 Jun. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
TIGHT
======
They are tight fitting bathing shorts. A little longer than the normal tight swim trunks but, I think, they look a little cooler.
They have an adjustable waistband and it's a simple drawstring at the waist

SHAPE
======
They dry easily and also retain their shape.

MATERIAL
========
It's comfortable and stretchy too.

A nice set of swim shorts.

HALLMARK CARD
==============
The hallmark card range varies from superb to the not so good. They are always printed on good quality card but some are exceptionally cute whilst others not so. I think you you see from the pictures what the card looks like so I thought it'd more useful to indicate if it suitable for a man, woman, child and also to indicate the size for royal mail pricing. OK? Let's go

NOTE
=====
Also, I've noticed that some countries don't send cards at all. (France) Whilst I've noticed a growing trend here in the UK that they want expand the recipients of the cards. Valentines- to non romantic people, father's cards to uncles, mother's day to others.
Sometimes there's good reason. But sometimes it's simply awful.
This is for an 'grandad' and sometimes they can be like a dad. But I wouldn't automatically want to include grandads on this day. (It might just be me though.)

CRAFTS
=======
I like to use a card after use. (That's why I took this to review) Some cards are pretty enough to have bits used in a collage or simply for crafts.
This card: 8.1 out of 10.

CUTENESS
=========
8.0 out of 10.

SIZE
====
Standard letter size for Royal Mail (under 24 CM x 16.5 CM)

MALE OR FEMALE
===============
It's suitable for a grandad.

OVERALL SPECIALNESS
====================
8.4 out of 10
It's pretty and looks nice.
It's on good strong card and is one of the prettier cards.
It's a stylish but quite a pretty card.

REVISION BOOKS
===============
I have a few family members that are going through the exam process and need a little help.
Sometimes a difficult concept is explained in school and quickly forgotten. Or the explanation isn't ideal That's where these books come into our own. They give comprehensive coverage on the subjects and give detailed, accessible notes on the subject.

STRENGTHS
===========
The range all have very clear diagrams, photographs, and give little exam tips and fully worked examples. I've never come away from one of the books confused. They give practical practice questions which follow the exam-style.
And they also give detailed answers at the back.

WEAKNESSES
============
Sometimes I'd like a few more books. As when you've exhausted the book you often need more practice. But, as it is, these are the best you can get.

SIX
===
There are six sections
1 Exam basics.
2 Reading: Understanding Texts
3 Reading: Language and Structure
4 Writing: Creative and Non-Fiction
5 Sample Exams
6 Practise Exams

I particularly like the exam examples.

THIS ONE
========
My nephew said, "I'm already good at English but does have a few good tips. "
I think this was a good revision aid and easy to follow.
