4.0 out of 5 stars easy to apply, easy to remove but not very strong, 3 Aug. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Easy to apply, easy to remove. Does not leave any marks (at least not after 1 week that I've tried) and sticks to nearly anything (I have tried wood, metal, tiles and glass) providing the surface if fairly flat and relatively clean.
Unfortunately it does not hold very much - only up to 0.5lb or around 200g.
Make sure you know the weight of what you want to hang up!


New KS2 Maths Targeted SAT Buster 10-Minute Tests - Advanced
New KS2 Maths Targeted SAT Buster 10-Minute Tests - Advanced
by CGP Books
Edition: Paperback
Price: £4.95

3.0 out of 5 stars Overall OK with confusing sections, 29 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Most 11+ maths books are similar as there is only a finite number of topics.
This book is just the same although slightly more advanced (meaning harder questions).
I bought it (and would buy it again) simply to give a grater variety of questions to my son, however I found the book oddly structured - the tests are in groups of 4 where each of the four tests takes 10 minutes but the final score is for a set of 4, thus making it awkward to mark just a 10 minute section.
Overall OK with confusing sections.

Russell Hobbs 20770 Purity Brita Filter Coffee Machine, 1.25 Litre
Price: £57.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Great machine apart from the pointless timer, 26 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A brief review not to waste your time:

Pros:
- the machine looks rally smart, nice brushed steal look and feel
- easy operation to make coffee or change filter
- Brita filters last months on daily usage
- removable and reusable coffee filter - no need to buy paper ones
- coffee tastes nice

Cons:
- large, check your space before you buy
- do not see much point of the timer, it is complicated to setup and never used by us


Scotch 20 cm Titanium Scissors - White/Green
Scotch 20 cm Titanium Scissors - White/Green
Price: £10.25

5.0 out of 5 stars Good looking, sharp and comfortable scissors, 5 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Good looking, sharp and comfortable scissors.

The overall length is just under 22cm and the blade is 9.5cm i.e. long enough for most jobs.
The scissors are very sharp and are expected to stay that way for quite sometime as titanium is stronger than steel.
The blade also looks very cool in dark titanium silver colour.


Salter 1079 WHDR 15 kg Max Chopping Board Digital Kitchen Scales
Salter 1079 WHDR 15 kg Max Chopping Board Digital Kitchen Scales
Price: £39.99

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice novel idea, unsure if sturdy enough, 29 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A nice novel idea.
The scale looks very nice and stylish, and can be kept as a permanents fixture in ones kitchen.
It's surface is (or looks to be) glass, and it can be used as a cutting board. I have tested to cut some vegetables on it and so far have not noticed any cut marks, although I have tried to be careful and not to scratch the surface. The digital numbers can be switched off while you're cutting.
As to size it is slightly bigger than an A4 paper and around an inch thick.
I like it quite a bit, so why only 4 stars:
I feel it's not sturdy enough to be a proper cutting board and I fear it will break if one cuts something hard and pushes too much.

5.0 out of 5 stars Likely the best gaming wheel I have ever used, 27 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I am using this steering wheel on an xbox one, driving mainly Forza Horizon 2.
I think it is pretty awesome!
The one I had before was also Thrustmaster but model Ferrari 458 Spider, while the Ferrari model looks nicer (with the logo and red insets) the TMX Force Feedback Racing Wheel is much better because:
1, it had force feedback, one can feel the vibrations of the road and one must use more force when turning on (say) rough terrain and (somehow) one can even feel the acceleration.
2, the turning angle can be up to 900 degrees, this is really fun on wet surface
3, the steering wheel is more compact, thus feels more authentic - more formula like
4, it is made out of metal, again this makes it feel more real

Overall a very very good addition to my xbox and likely the best gaming wheel I have ever used.


Nivea Sun Kids Caring Roll-On with High SPF30 50 ml
Nivea Sun Kids Caring Roll-On with High SPF30 50 ml
Price: £4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolutely excellent product for families with children., 20 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
An excellent idea! A small container with easy to apply sun cream and with no mess!
Our children take these to school and apply the protector themselves without making their hands dirty.
The roll-on ball distributes just the right amount that absorbs very quickly - the sun cream is white but the layer applied is very thin thus does not need to be re-spread by hands.
An absolutely excellent product for families with children.
And an added benefit: it's only 50ml thus can be take on an airplane in your hand luggage!


Ultrasport Spoke Reflectors Set of 36, grey, one size, 330900000102
Ultrasport Spoke Reflectors Set of 36, grey, one size, 330900000102

5.0 out of 5 stars Very visible and very easy to install, 20 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A really good simple idea making your bike wheels much more visible in low light and at night.

I have used the box on tow bikes, putting 9 reflector strips on each wheel. This is more than sufficient to increase your visibility.
The strips (or better called mini tubes) cover the whole spoke and are reflective 360 degrees it thus does not matter which way they point (left of right).
They are very easy to install, they hold well (they don't slip down the spoke) and they are easy to remove too.

I have tested the reflectiveness with my car light and can confirm the visibility is 20+ meters - and will definitely help to make you save while rising on the rode!


STABILO beFab! Fountain Pen Quarks Blister with 3 Blue Ink Cartridges
STABILO beFab! Fountain Pen Quarks Blister with 3 Blue Ink Cartridges
Price: £14.35

5.0 out of 5 stars A good quality project for a fair price, 15 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Nice looking, a little quirky quality fountain pen.

The main points for a fountain pen for me (and mainly my children at school) are:
- not leaking - this one does not (kids hands are just a bit covered with ink)
- sturdy - can be pushed quite hard and still keeps the nib shape
- quirky design - kids love it
- takes standard ink cartridges (don't need to be Stabilo)

A good quality project for a fair price!


Manuka Doctor Manuka Honey 12+ Total Active 250 g
Manuka Doctor Manuka Honey 12+ Total Active 250 g
Price: £19.99

5.0 out of 5 stars lovely and expensive, 11 Jun. 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
We've never tried Manuka honey before, mainly because of the price - not that we could not afford but we did not see why would one want to pay 5 times more for Manuka honey when a standard honey is very nice too.
However, we understood the reason (for the price) once we tried it. It's a very rich honey, it's not transparent yet not coagulated wither. It has a lovely smell that is fairly strong, so I guess just sniffing the honey would make you full soon.
It apparently has good medicinal attributes too.
See my picture of the honey consistency and colour before you buy.
