WOW Toys Birthday Countdown Calendar
WOW Toys Birthday Countdown Calendar
Price: £13.56

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice idea and playability attractiveness, 4 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Taking its cue from the popularity of Advent Calendars, this birthday countdown offers toys rather than confectionery.
Three characters and a dog plus accessories. There are other series, and all to the same scale, so toys cans be mixed for greater fun. Mostly rigid but some items can be attached to another and move, e.g. a spinning ice cream on the tricycle.
No small parts as a risk, PVC free and non-toxic paint.
Says 1-5 age range but I think more realistic 2 -5 (if ignoring the relationship to birthdays, 18 months on.

Earth-it Bi-Office Notice Board Cork with MDF Frame W1200xH900mm Ref REC1401233

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice bit of kit for the office (or home)., 4 July 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a decent size board- which means it can be used for a mix of work posters - those that need to be permanently on display and those that go on for short periods.
Also useful in the home office for domestic notices.
Appears sturdy and well made - I did have such a board once, that eventually developed a buckle after prolonged exposure to central heating - but needs the test of time.
Comes with fittings.
An unexpected use might be to lay flat as a play surface for soldiers or cowboy games with figurines.


Taylors of Harrogate Espresso Coffee Capsules Nespresso Compatible Colombian Huila (Pack of 6, Total 60 Capsules)
Taylors of Harrogate Espresso Coffee Capsules Nespresso Compatible Colombian Huila (Pack of 6, Total 60 Capsules)
Price: £17.36

5.0 out of 5 stars Going on my shopping list :-), 26 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Not had any problems with the pods and the taste is great.
Have made espressos, lattes, and americanos - all excellent.
Good value for money.
Although I am a fan of recycling, I do like the fact I can bin the pods - keeping nespresso pods until I have enough for pick-up can be a nuisance. I have also found nespresso pods to be susceptible to handling damage, meaning they don't fit the machine. No problem experienced with Taylors.


AmazonBasics 3-Bag Laundry Sorter
AmazonBasics 3-Bag Laundry Sorter
Price: £30.49

4.0 out of 5 stars One for the larger home or commercial (e.g. a B&B)., 13 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It did not take long to assemble and is of sturdy construction. Do plan where the 2 lockable wheels go - you don't want on opposite corners.
Very handy to have 3 bags, meaning laundry doesn't need sorting out by the machine - although the family must contribute to organising their dirty linen and not randomly throw into any container. The bags themselves can be washed, as the handles do remove.
On the downside - it is big and needs space. As it is functional and not attractive, it can be a bit of an eyesore.
One for the larger home or commercial (e.g. a B&B).

The Warden: The Chronicles of Barsetshire (Oxford World's Classics)
The Warden: The Chronicles of Barsetshire (Oxford World's Classics)
by Anthony Trollope
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.49

5.0 out of 5 stars For those who like a well-composed, well-written human story, 8 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The is the first in a line of 6 novels of "Barsetshire", and part of a rich stream of classic literature.
A variety of characters - from the unwordly Septimus Harding - The Warden" - to the ungracious Dr Grantly - create an early "soap opera" (which I say in with the greatest of respect). Each has a tale to be told, with interconnecting lines of plot, that entertain.
The writing is excellent and the words flow form the page.
The paperback is well bound and the pages are of desirable quality not found in many modern books, intended for a short lifespan.


Lamentation (The Shardlake Series)
Lamentation (The Shardlake Series)
by C. J. Sansom
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £7.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Superlative...again!, 6 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Still delivering great plots, character and writing.
This book can stand alone but it is worth starting with the first Shardlake and following in sequence.
Sansom writes with a style that creates the place and time perfectly, taking the reader back to Tudor England and its streets. There are passages where the story moves along with dialogue alone, which greatly reminds me of Conan Doyle's technique, and I would propose CJS to write further Holmes stories if asked.
Shardlake is a lawyer, physically noticeable for having a crookback, which, in period, was seen as someone who had been cursed. He is intelligent and caring but gets caught up with politics and religion, neither of which he finds attractive, but he has to survive in this world, where one mistake can meaning burning at the stake. There is excellent plot and danger and Shardlake has to put friends at risk to try to succeed in his mission. As well as being entertained, one can study both history and effective creative writing from this master.


Hallmark Large Square Contemporary 3D Wedding Card
Hallmark Large Square Contemporary 3D Wedding Card
Offered by Shop Inc
Price: £4.10

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning, 6 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
There is a degree to the design of this card that lifts it out of the ordinary.
The themed floral pattern is enhanced by the extra layers of card and ribbon, in pink and green.
I would recommend this card, being the size it is, as a card from a group to the happy couple. So buy it for the office to sign.


Cellfade Skin Enhancement lightening Cream 50 ml
Cellfade Skin Enhancement lightening Cream 50 ml
Price: £34.95

3.0 out of 5 stars May need a longer trial to see effect., 4 Jun. 2015
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have been using for nearly a month on age spots and freckles but, to my naked eye, I cannot discern any change to pigmentation. This product may suit different skin tones more than others. No adverse effects, nice lotion to apply.

UPDATE: 2 months of use and no discernible effects.


Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Say Please Tea Set
Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Say Please Tea Set
Price: £8.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Plenty of play value, 3 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Easily handled by my one year old g-daughter (who doesn't yet understand tea sets, but loves the music etc).
My other g-daughter has had hers from some time and the visit nearly always involved a ritual tea treat with the same set.
Excellent toy and value for money - ages of play value
