Black Canyon Self-Inflating Mattress Green 200cm X 66 cm X 7 cm
Black Canyon Self-Inflating Mattress Green 200cm X 66 cm X 7 cm

1.0 out of 5 stars Good for one night only, 9 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Purchased this in the hope that it would provide more support and comfort than those with a shallow depth. Good for one night only. The second night it deflated, the third night it split. There was nothing sharp around to have pierced it, just poor manufacture.

2.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps a month of Saturdays., 3 May 2010
If you have the skills of a professional joiner, a large shed with electricity and equipped like a small laboratory, plus a comfortable budget to buy all the equipment you need,then perhaps a month of Saturdays with no weekday interuptions, maybe then you could truthfully add 'Saturday Science Projects' to the title. I bought this book to have some fun with our teenagers, it is a big disappointment. Save your money for something more feasible and achievable instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Teenage Bliss, 31 Mar. 2010
I have no musical talent whatsoever, so cannot give you any help on the technical details of the music, however, this book was bought for our teenager, who can read music as can his little sibling and both have been playing Beatles tunes from this book with a lot more ease and fun than from any other sheet music.


Uppies and Downies: The Extraordinary Football Games of Britain (Played in Britain)
Uppies and Downies: The Extraordinary Football Games of Britain (Played in Britain)
by Hugh Hornby
Edition: Paperback
Price: £14.88

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Read, 31 Mar. 2010
There are occasions when authors and journalists take a well loved local tradition and tweak it out of all recognition, but as the wife and mother of Uppies, I am very happy to see that Mr Hornby has captured the joy and spirit of the Border Games so brilliantly. This book is an easy,interesting and informative read. It should not be just restricted to blokes! If you play or know someone who plays in one the country's extraordinary football games, it would be negligent not to buy this book.


The Adventures of Captain Underpants
The Adventures of Captain Underpants
by D Pilkey
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just for boys., 2 Feb. 2010
This collection was bought for our five year old son, his older sister enjoys listening too, however, the little I read to them before being ousted in favour of teenager big brother (who has more self-control and refrains from roaring with laughter at all the crucial parts) were funny, well written and a great light-hearted read. Good for dipping in and out of if you are short on time to sit down for a long haul reading session.

5.0 out of 5 stars How do you make that?, 1 Dec. 2009
I had to buy this book after I had been lent a copy with the intention of crocheting some slippers for my children but soon found a wealth of seasonal ideas that my older children could do unaided. It has proved invaulable for providing interesting and challenging projects for my Scout group. The instructions for each project are clearly written and accompanied by line drawings, which do initially look complicated, but once you have the materials infront of you become self-explanatory. It is not a book for the under-eights to work from without adult help, but for older chilren or adults who wish to make clothes/decorations/toys for children, it is an inspiring read.


Coleman 3 In 1 Blanket (Old Version)
Coleman 3 In 1 Blanket (Old Version)

5.0 out of 5 stars A decent bit of kit., 20 Nov. 2009
I purchased three of these based on previous reviews for our children who regularly attend Scout camps. They are massive but in a good way. It makes a decent pillow, ground blanket and will totally cocoon them in their sleeping bags at a brass monkey camp. Care needs to be taken if worn at a camp fire because of the waterproof outer. If you are only 5 years old, it makes a fantastic indoor tent draped over kitchen chairs! They've had great fun with them and stayed warm.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Doll's Dressmaker: The Complete Pattern Book, 7 Jun. 2009
The instructions are very easy to follow and the page of handy hints has helped correct other sewing projects. I have not had to use the unpicker for ages!
