MY 12" Inflatables Football Basketball Ball Pump
Offered by geekparty
Price: £2.96

4.0 out of 5 stars Just the job for inflating a basketball, 18 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The basketball (also from Amazon) arrived, I suppose understandably, deflated.
Glad then that I bought this little pump.
Now I can 'shoot hoops'

4.0 out of 5 stars Saves trips to the bootmaker for hole punching, 16 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When the regime works and you're down in waist size, save yourself the hassle of going backwards & forwards to your boot maker.
Buy one of these and save time & money.
The feel of it suggests that it's not equipped for a lot of heavy duty stuff and this may be so.
But certainly for the occasional hole punching in, e.g., your belts - you can't really go wrong: certainly not for the price.
(Here's a tip: a piece of spare leather, behind the leather you are wanting to punch, is a good trick: I saw my boot maker do this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Getting a quart into a pint pot, 16 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you're keen to get a quart into a pint pot, then this book will help you do it.
Certainly if you want to maximise existing space(s).
Lots of good pictorials too.
Equally good for sitting quietly and just flicking through it - for academic inspiration.

5.0 out of 5 stars "The train leaving the platform is the .....", 12 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A terrific little set which is well made and with good, bright, Christmassy colourings.
Marvellous as a table decoration.
Doubt if I would be putting little candles into those carriages which have such a fitting: probably a 'step too far'.


MONDAYNOON Christmas Village Tree Mini 6 Pcs
MONDAYNOON Christmas Village Tree Mini 6 Pcs

4.0 out of 5 stars Product, fine. Packaging, abysmal!, 12 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A nifty little product which works well when accompanied by other miniature, seasonal, decorations to decorate a dining table.
Here comes the B*U*T ... packaging was truly abysmal!
All six of these little trees were crammed into a flimsy, small, plastic bag which was not fit for purpose.
Every tree needed much attention before it could be used and even then they still were not quite right.
The wire stems were bent and expanses of the imitation pine needles badly crushed. I had to tell guests that they survived a blizzard.
Mondaynoon deserve this criticism and perhaps Amazon as well because it did the fulfilment.


Kikkerland Polyresin Solar Pope, White
Kikkerland Polyresin Solar Pope, White
Price: £18.18

5.0 out of 5 stars The high ranking, cheery waver, 6 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Whimsical and not at all 'tacky' nor offensive. Very well made; coloured; presented; packaged.
I can't help returning the wave every time I pass it.
The supplier fulfilled this order gaining check marks against all criteria.

2.0 out of 5 stars I'm simply not happy with it., 20 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Glad that I just bought one (1), so as to check it out, before ordering a bulk quantity.
Its disappointing in many ways ... including its extremely light weight (4 oz.)
For the money, not a good buy in my opinion.
I certainly will not be ordering more in fact, I shall be donating this one to a Charity Shop.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very fit for (our) purpose., 7 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I researched the availability of this sort of thing for use in our home 'do everything' room.
Criteria included: * had to be sturdy and of a decent size * needed a strong shelf * ideally some drawers too * certainly a good worktop.
Homescapes and its Mangat Large Console Table came up trumps.
The price was competitive ... the turnaround quick ... the delivery driver was A1 ... and the attention to packaging detail
exemplary: very 'heavy duty'. Further, they kept me abreast of delivery.
This product would work equally well in other environments.
Hooray for Homescapes.


Never Go Back (Jack Reacher, Book 18)
Never Go Back (Jack Reacher, Book 18)
Price: £4.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Lee and Jack - what a combo!, 28 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Just how long can Lee Child fathom-out great plots for loner Jack Reacher?
If future ones are as good as this latest page turner, then its great news for all of his followers.

I'm reaching the stage where soon I'll take the coveted chair on "Mastermind" with the novels of Lee Child as my chosen subject.
Given that I pay so much attention to his writings - rather than just speed read - I would have to be up against some formidable opposition to not win or, at least, achieve a decent place.
