Mitre Ultra Grip Match Netball - White/Cyan/Orange, Size 5
Mitre Ultra Grip Match Netball - White/Cyan/Orange, Size 5
Price: £13.70

5.0 out of 5 stars Ultragrip – very fitting name, 9 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This netball has all the same quality features I really like in the rugby ball I also have from Mitre, and that has been getting a lot of use lately. It is of official size and weight and is match quality. You will need to inflate it, and for that I used a needle type attachment that came with my digital tyre pump, and set the pressure accordingly. It gives the recommended pressure on the ball itself, which is handy.

The design is very nice and is eye catching in a good way. The grip on the ball is excellent. It is covered with a repeating triangular pattern of three different sized raised bumps, and where it says "ultragrip" it's not kidding.

4.0 out of 5 stars A lot of pages, but they could do with being that little bit thicker, 9 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I much prefer display books with larger numbers of pages, and with 40 clear pockets this is about the ideal number for me. The red cover is good and I like its rounded corners. The pages though are a little bit too thin and delicate, so if you're going to keep changing what's inside them, you need to be extremely careful. This display book came well packaged but still, when I opened it all the pages were folded bunched up towards the centre. That's going to keep happening if you don’t fill all the pages and are going to carry it around with you, and I find that a bit annoying, especially as over time it's going to add a number of little pock mark dents in the plastic. On the plus side, I like the plastic window for putting a description on the spine and the way the 40 pockets are spaced out within the width of the folder by being glued in two separate sets of 20.


Scotch 2050PCWE 48 mm x 50 m Greener Masking Tape - Beige
Scotch 2050PCWE 48 mm x 50 m Greener Masking Tape - Beige
Price: £5.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Works well, 6 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This masking tape is 2 inches edge-to-edge and you get a lot of it on a roll – a whole 50 metres no less. It is labelled "greener" and states it is made from 56% renewable resources. There's a separate statement that the paper in the tape contains 30% recycled fibres. It can be cut with scissors or a penknife, but that's not at all necessary as it's easy to tear a piece off. Yet at the same time it doesn't tear accidentally, at least that I have experienced.

I tested it out with some paint. I don't have any painting of walls or furniture imminent, but did have some paint already mixed for painting of the artistic kind, and I may well use it a fair bit for this purpose because it's very good – it holds in place yet removes without leaving residue on the art paper – and the line it left was straight and left almost no bleed-through.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like Alan Walker, why not give this a listen too, 6 July 2016
This review is from: The Ocean (MP3 Download)
This is a catchy little pop song I discovered in the Scandinavian charts, which is same place I discovered Alan Walker's Faded months before it caught on over here. I expect similar things for this song too.

5.0 out of 5 stars For a good first impression, 6 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
If you're asking yourself why you might want to get the portrait version of Rapesco's popper wallets when there is more width in the landscape version to put in and remove your papers, then you're thinking the same thought I initially had. But I see the answer now – the first impression factor of receiving documents in these wallets is much better. I would use the landscape version for general storage, but if I want to hand some documents in and make a good first impression whilst doing so, I will definitely use these ones.

The overall size is smaller than Rapesco's landscape version, but there's still plenty of room for the A4 document, and there's enough give in the wallet to hold several pages. The see-through plastic is tough enough for general purposes and the popper fastener itself is easy to use and makes a satisfying pop when you undo or refasten it.


Rapesco Galvanised Staples 26/6 mm - Box of 5,000
Rapesco Galvanised Staples 26/6 mm - Box of 5,000
Price: £1.90

5.0 out of 5 stars Ah, how do I review a box of staples?, 6 July 2016
I got these for free with a stapler and staple remover, so feel like the right thing to do is review them. However, what is there I can say other than the basic information you can already find out in the product description? There are 5,000 galvanised staples in the box and they can be used in "Rapesco, Rapid & Leitz 26 series, Rexel 56 series, Swingline & Bostitch 1/4 inch". I found them easy to use in a Rapesco stapler and easy to remove using my new Rapesco staple remover. Can't think of any more to say, so I'll sign off and say "thank you for reading".


Rapesco Skippa Full Strip Stapler - Silver
Rapesco Skippa Full Strip Stapler - Silver
Price: £8.97

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job, 6 July 2016
This is a fairly standard, lightweight stapler. I received it unexpectedly when reviewing a staple remover, so it was a nice surprise. I can't say it has the best action I have seen, and the shape lends a natural bias towards pressing it in the middle of the oval shape on the handle, which requires more effort than when my thumb is on the edge. It also has an option to change your staple from an innie to an outie (by which I mean where the points go out instead of in).

I wonder why some staplers have this option? I don't see how it's any more useful than the standard way, as it seems less firm a join and it makes the staples more difficult to remove. If you know the reason, please leave me a comment because I'd be genuinely interested to hear why some may want this option.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use and easy to store, 6 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This staple remover is much better than the one I use at work, which is a large thing that takes up a lot of room in the drawer and is always open, meaning it's easy to catch unwary fingers as they reach into the drawer for it. Now, if I were removing staples every day, several times a day, then I would want a large staple remover, but what I actually want is a small, low volume, portable one that can even fit in my pocket if needed. One exactly like this.

When you close it, you slide the small button across and it locks in place – so there's no accidental nipping of fingers. When you use it, the spring allows it to snap back into the open position and the plastic grips are comfortable and make the remover easy to use, even if you're removing several staples one after the other. It removes them cleanly, so when you do it it's a smooth action.

This would be perfect for use at work, but sorry work, this is staying in my stationery cupboard.


Command BATH11-ES Shower Caddy with Water Resistant Strips - Frosted
Command BATH11-ES Shower Caddy with Water Resistant Strips - Frosted
Offered by Homecare Essentials Limited
Price: £19.59

5.0 out of 5 stars Really useful and I like the design, 6 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I already have the corner version of this caddy, but we have a lot of shampoo and other bottles that need to be stored somewhere accessible, and this flat surface version complements the other one nicely. The quality is excellent, with smooth edges and a really suitable shape for draining water. It looks completely right, and the real question is not to get this caddy but where the best place is to fix it. The method of attaching is so simple and full instructions are given on the packaging. The caddy can be removed from its fixture and even the fixture can be easily removed without leaving surface damage.


Nivea Sun Protect and Sensitive Sun Lotion High SPF 50 - 200 ml
Nivea Sun Protect and Sensitive Sun Lotion High SPF 50 - 200 ml
Price: £6.38

5.0 out of 5 stars A trusted favourite, 3 July 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My family have been using Nivea's sun protection for a good number of years. From time to time we've had to make do with a different brand when we couldn't get this, and we've never liked them as much. Of course, the main reason we keep buying it is that it works. We're not that shy about slapping it on either, especially if spending time in the garden on a bright day. This bottle is factor 50, and our opinion is that if you're going to use something like this, why would you want to use anything less than the highest level of protection?

The bottle we received is slightly different from the standard sun cream we are used to – the cream comes out through a pump action nozzle – but it's just the same principle, put a dab on and rub it in. It has that slight chemical smell, but that's only really noticeable when you're putting it on, and then you don't notice it after that. It washes off easily too; it never sticks to your skin when you go to wash off afterwards.
