VonShef Pump Action Airpot in Stainless Steel - Free 2 Year Warranty - Flask for Tea, Coffee, Hot Water and Soup (5L)
Offered by DOMU UK
Price: £34.99

2.0 out of 5 stars ... a few times and it does keep the water super hot for a long time but already the pump ..., 20 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Have used the flask a few times and it does keep the water super hot for a long time but already the pump button at the top has got stuck in and I can't fix it. Now when I fill it with hot water it leaks out on it's own. I use this in workshops with children and it is now a hazard. I would like to know how I can get a replacement.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disaster!, 20 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: John Constable (Hardcover)
This book arrived, has an English cover, states that it is English in the description yet appears to be entirely in German!! I purchased this and paid extra postage to use it in time for a course that I am teaching on Sunday. Now useless and too late to exchange it. Waste of money.


Disney / Pixar BRAVE Movie Exclusive 11 Inch Classic Doll Merida
Disney / Pixar BRAVE Movie Exclusive 11 Inch Classic Doll Merida

2.0 out of 5 stars nice doll, badly packaged by seller., 3 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The doll looks beautiful but it is a Christmas gift and not a particularly cheap one and the packaging is damaged and doesn't look new anymore due to not being protected very well [just wedged diagonally into a larger box with no additional bubble wrap etc.] I always use Amazon and am always pleased, but am disappointed with this, especially as another reviewer has said the same.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really like this book, 28 Oct. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I use this book for all kinds of reasons, it covers many areas in a really natural down to earth fashion. You will not be scared off by complicated or scary ritual, it is all very grounded in nature and folklore. It is well written and very easy to read without becoming patronising. I feel almost priviliged to be allowed to share in the information that has been passed down for generations.

5.0 out of 5 stars can't fault it, 28 Oct. 2010
have had this book for a while, originally bought it for my husband but have since stolen it! It is on my bedside table as a book that i dip in to regularly. It has a really good cross section of tree information from the very practical, what the wood is used for, to the more spiritual beliefs and folk lore that surround each tree. For this reason it is a really well balanced and well researched book that will keep tree huggers happy but not scare off the non tree huggers either!

4.0 out of 5 stars basic but very useful, 28 Oct. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this is a very useful book for visual research, but you will not get academic information from it. Best used as a visual dictionary, I have used it several times already to inform my art work.

5.0 out of 5 stars very practical book, 28 Oct. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book has been a great help to us trying to understand and put on a mummers play. It gives you what you need to just get on with it. Useful diagrams/illustrations, costume description and even music if you need it. It doesn't end at mummers plays it looks at traditions throughout the seasons. It's nearly a haynes manual for folk tradition!

2.0 out of 5 stars this book is a bit of a struggle, 28 Oct. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Consciously Female (Paperback)
I was really excited about this book after seeing it in a book list in a magazine I read. I tried really hard to glean what I needed out of it, but unfortunately it is a bit rambling and struggles to get to the point. There are nuggets of information in there but you need to work hard to find them. I fear that it's rambling nature could be due to it being over explained and sometimes repetative, it can also feel a bit patronising at times. I'm not sure who the audience for this book is, maybe some women will find the style helpful as it is very soft and uses alot of personal story, but I just wanted something a bit more solid and found it difficult to access.
