5.0 out of 5 stars Great for the junior gymnast., 3 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I ordered two gym mats for my grandchildren (different colours to avoid confusion!) They arrived on time, and in good condition. The pink one has a light pattern on it, the blue does not. They have a relatively dense foam filling, and seem ideal for the "gymnastics" / "goalkeeping" skills these children like to practice. They can also be combined (one on top of the other / length / sideways) for similar fun, as long as they take turns (only one person on the mats, at any time.) Good for cooperative play / learning gym safety. Probably easier to fold than roll, these mats are good enough to want to store well. Not cheap by any means (!) but a "grandparent" present (for instance) that could be used indoors or out, and that will help children who enjoy this kind of activity to develop some related skills (as well as their confidence, in this area.) Like everything else, though, it should be used safely, and (with young children, especially) be supervised. Worthwhile, if within your budget!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for party bags., 1 Aug. 2013

On time, at a good price, and useful additions to one of my grandchildren's party bags that can (hopefully) only be put to good use.

Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive tome., 23 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An indepth analysis of this First World War Theatre of War in Northern France. It seems to me to be the sort of coffee table book for those prepared and sufficiently motivated to read about this subject in well-researched detail.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy figures for the basis of imaginative play in young children., 23 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: ELC HappyLand Happy Family (Toy)
Bought just before Mothercare's 2 for 1 sale of this item, but not unreasonably priced. Easy models of familiar characters for small children to hold and use in imaginative play.

I have reviewed this product long before today and have no idea why I am being asked to comment on it again.

2.0 out of 5 stars Significant creases on the front cover., 23 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have reviewed this product before and am unclear why I am being asked to do so again. This item was described as being in very good condition but arrived with significant creases to its front cover and flyleaf, with the cover partially detached from the spine of the book at the front. I will not knowingly purchase from this company, or review this product, again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Imaginative brilliance!, 17 Sept. 2011
Not quite sure what "Here Lies Arthur" is doing in this collection (good though this alternative take on the ancient legend is) but the "Mortal Engines" series seems to me to be a towering feat of powerfully imagined children's literature and one that is certain to enthrall both young (and not so young!) readers of fantasy fiction. In my opinion, this work is at the very pinnacle of its genre, and bears valid comparison with other quality work in this area by writers such as Garth Nix, Jonathon Stroud, J.K. Rowling and Michael Pullman. In addition to earlier works of excellence, good young readers are fortunate indeed to have such a canon of modern classics available to them!

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the box!, 18 May 2010
Bought this box set at a bargain price. It arrived on time and in good condition, and the drama itself is excellent! I was very happy to offer it as a birthday present.


Crocodile puppet - IdeesJeux
Crocodile puppet - IdeesJeux

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for encouraging early imaginative play!, 26 Dec. 2009
This review is from: Crocodile puppet - IdeesJeux (Toy)
I bought this for my grandson, aged approximately twenty one months, as he likes the crocodile character in Lucy Cousins' "Maisey" stories, and because it seemed a productive way to stimulate his language development and early imaginative play - where boys frequently appear to lack!

It also appears to offer opportunities to model different kinds of behaviour: the croc. can be a helpful friend, for example, or someone who says sorry for what they have done, as well as a joker, or someone who is scary (but never in a way that is really frightening or traumatic!)

This simple toy seems to fit the bill well, as it is not inappropriately expensive or over-realistic, seems to fit small hands / arms easily, and has no hard or sharp parts that can harm (when it "bites" for example) or that can be swallowed.

If it doesn't work for your child, it was an experiment that hopefully didn't cost too much!

If it does work, it can lead to further gradual / "stepped" developments in this area!

3.0 out of 5 stars Nostaglia for adults!, 26 Oct. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The D.V.D. of these children's quasi-iconic series from all-too-long-ago do all the things that they ever did, and will probably provide a pleasant nostalgic reminder for many parents of young children of their own early televisual experiences. It would be unfair to expect, however, that the technology (and pace?) from that time could compete with worthwhile equivalents from the modern day. it may well be, however, that these programmes could still provide worthwhile and absorbing tales (appearing, as they do, to require some delayed gratification) for brighter nursery-age children.
