Diana and Her Nymphs 1000 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle (Pomegranate Artpiece Puzzle)
Diana and Her Nymphs 1000 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle (Pomegranate Artpiece Puzzle)
by Robert Burns
Edition: Toy
Price: £14.67

5.0 out of 5 stars Great puzzle of a wonderful artwork, 12 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was a lovely puzzle to complete. It was quite a hard one, but every piece has interest - there are no vast areas of sky like with some puzzles. The pieces are large and solid and have a good non-reflective surface. Because they are so chunky they take up a lot of space in the box, so piece sorting is tricky in the early stages. This puzzle is square, not rectangular like most puzzles, so it didn't fit on my usual board - just something to be aware of.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get your child to do some (fun) maths, 18 Jun. 2015
My nine year old son enjoyed this book. I thought he would be unenthusiastic because it is essentially a maths book, but I think that because it was about real world applications of maths and because it was about space exploration he really got into it. I'm looking forward to trying out the others in this series (Solve a crime, Design a skyscraper, Fly a jet fighter).

I really enjoyed this puzzle and disagree that it is cheaply made. It is a lovely painting and the puzzle has no boring expanses of sky or water. A pleasure to complete.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fine enough, 6 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought a pack of these to go with the Nobo Quartet Magnetic Monthly Organiser Combination Board - 585 x 430 mm. They are fine enough for writing on this organizer, and the four different colours allow you to colour code events and be even more organized.

4.0 out of 5 stars Get organised, 6 Feb. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this to replace my old board which kept falling off the wall and breaking on the floor. I was dubious about using the supplied sticky pads to hold it up, but after a few weeks it is still stuck firmly. The spaces to write on are not massive but I bought some fine pens (FINE 4 Dry Wipe White Board Marker Pens Black Blue Red Green Tip) which work well with this board. The memo area on the right is useful for noting those future events which will not yet fit onto the calender, and the cork pin board area is useful for appointment cards and so on. I am pleased with this purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dare to be different, 7 April 2011
This review is from: The Different Dragon (Paperback)
My son enjoyed this book about a dragon who does not want to be scary. It shows an ordinary family which just happens to be headed by two mothers, whilst hopefully letting children know that it's okay to be different, like the dragon. Now I'm just waiting for the author to write a follow up. Come on Jennifer!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good quality belt and holster, 9 Dec. 2010
This looks extremely well made and durable. It is for an adult - it is much too large for a child to use.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't knock the tray!, 30 Oct. 2009
This review is from: Owl Puke (Paperback)
My son enjoyed this book and owl pellet set. The only comment I would make to the manufacturer is could we please have a lid on the bone sorting tray? Believe me, when dozens of tiny mouse bones get dropped on the carpet they are a devil to pick up!

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartwarming love story, 27 Oct. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gypo [DVD] [2005] (DVD)
I had pretty low expectations of this film, based, probably, on the off putting title. However, everything else about this film is utterly brilliant. The performances and dogme style make it realistic ; the structure (same story from three points of view) is clever because it means that you really don't find out the full story until near the end, thus building plenty of suspense. The social themes (Roma refugees, teenage pregnancy, marriage and parenthood) are highly topical. Having said all this the film would still not be brilliant if it were not given heart by the unlikely love story that is at it's centre. This film gave me the best warm buzz of the year! Kudos to all involved, but I would like to single out Rula Lenska and Chloe Sirene for special attention. It's great to see that Rula Lenska is still working and looking as wonderful as ever. Chloe Sirene is very beautiful and has a lovely half smile on her face in her scenes with Helen, seemingly bemused by her good fortune in finding someone to love. I recommend this is all of you who are looking for feel good movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bikes not dykes!, 8 Oct. 2008
This review is from: 2 Seconds [1998] [DVD] (DVD)
This is a great film if you're really into cycling. Otherwise, I'd give it a miss. "2 seconds" is just about the amount of lesbian romance in it.
