1.0 out of 5 stars Even as adults ours were really poor. Frustrating & expensive, 18 April 2017
Dreadful. Doesn't hold shape. There is a reason all the pictures on the box are CGI: You cannot make them with the kit! Even as adults ours were really poor. Frustrating & expensive. Returned for a refund. AVOID!

1.0 out of 5 stars ... you have a reasonably new TV this machine is USELESS and won't play the lyrics, 17 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The TV output isn't supported on modern TVs so if you have a reasonably new TV this machine is USELESS and won't play the lyrics. Pretty pricey for a glorified CD player. Returning it. Needs updating to keep up with technology.

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY! - Rubbish, leaky, very little for children to do, and pricey as well!, 15 Feb. 2014
This was bought for our daughter for Christmas and she was very excited to be making it. Unfortunately the kit itself requires quite a lot of adult intervention to help with assembly but my daughter was very excited about the final result so we carried on. Things did not improve when we filled the globe with water, for a brief second as she twiddled the knob, there was a moment of awe as the snow fell. This was rapidly replaced by disappointment when the knob fell off and the water started to leak from the globe. We checked everything had been assembled correctly, but the globe continued to leak. The globe didn't even look that beautiful as the snow clung to the cut out characters and the washing up liquid suggestion made it foamy not fabulous! This snow globe is a total failure and I would expect far better from Disney, John Adams and Amazon. What a ridiculous waste of money.

Edited: We sent a copy of this review to John Adams and were impressed to receive, almost by return of post, a Disney craft kit by way of compensation as well as a letter explaining the leakages are caused by the O-ring being in the wrong place and needing slight adjustment. This is extremely fiddly and we still haven't found an ideal fix, even following the additional instructions, so I still wouldn't recommend this kit, but top marks to John Adams for excellent customer service in trying to rectify the problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars So far very impressed!, 8 July 2009
We bought this on the strength of the other good reviews and I am pleased to say we haven't been disappointed! It does a quick job and makes light work of our large lawn as well as creating some lovely stripes!It also folds down to make storing easier. We have yet to see how it stands the test of time but so far it is excellent and we would certainly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous, fun, Excellently designed, love it, love it, love it!, 13 July 2008
This review is from: Cranium Super Fort (Toy)
This is a fabulous versatile construction set. The possibilities are endless for things to construct from tunnels to space ships, castles to boats. Our three year old can build things herself and it is great for encouraging imaginative play. It seems pretty durable with magnetic joiners and bendy foam i.e. not a lot to snap. The only drawback I can see if that small people might want to bite the foam e.g. like swimming floats, woggles etc, so a word in advance about keeping teeth off might be advisable! As long as you have a decent size space indoors or out you will NOT be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious and thought provoking, but the truth may hurt!, 1 Jan. 2008
This review is from: Skinny Bitch (Paperback)
This book is an excellent, funny book with lots of tough love advice about how to become healthier and lose weight. It recommends a vegan diet and give lots of no nonsense advice about what to eat and why. It is entertaining and well researched but if you are just starting out on a journey to improve what you eat and lose weight you may find it uncomfortable eating (persevere it is totally worth it!). It offers great advice to everyone whether you want to become lighter or healthier.I will certainly be buying their other titles.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great for the experienced!, 22 April 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
With a little prior yoga experience and after reading the previous reviews I thought this might be suitable. It wasn't really! The positions are incredible and while I admired Yee's bendiness, there was no way a fairly inexperienced person could achieve them. The pace of the DVD did not allow me to work them out and there is no advice about how to scale them down, for beginners, until suppleness improves. I would only buy this if you are quite supple and familiar with yoga already otherwise it is just frustrating.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great movement sensor but..., 30 Sept. 2006
We had heard great reviews about this so purchased it. The movement sensor function was great and only went off when our daughter rolled right off it and was a very reassuring feature. However the interference has been a real problem with only 2 channels and a tendency to buzz near anything electrical, even the lights on the mains! We have used this monitor for 19 months and have now found that a loose connection in the wire to the parent unit means that we spend a good while wiggling it in order to even power the unit. We are now considering replacing it for further children which is disapointing based on our high expectations and the price tag.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!, 16 Mar. 2006
This book is a great starting point if you are converting to veganism, or just catering for a vegan. The recipes are simple, tasty and hugely popular with everyone we have cooked for (vegan or not!). The sponge cakes are particularly delicious - moister and lighter than the egg/milk equivalent. Most of the recipes are also easily adaptable so once you have some favourite basics e.g. kidney bean burgers, chick pea stroganoff, lentil curry, you can experiment adding different pulses, herbs, spices etc and they work just as well. We use this book every week and love it!
