Playmobil 6686 City Life Children's Hospital Emergency Medical Helicopter

5.0 out of 5 stars High quality, sturdy and very much loved by kids., 27 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I don't know what it is but my 5 years old girl is completely in love with this helicopter. It accompanies her even in the bathroom and on the dinner table (!)

Quality wise the Playmobil sets are superb, smooth, easy to assemble, sturdy and made of high grade plastic.

This particular set feature ER helicopter with pilot, doctor with doctor case and patients with stretcher, casts and bandages for the leg, arm and head. The helicopter opens on the front, back and on the sides. People fit (click in) inside as well as the stretcher so there is no loose parts, except for the bandages and the doctor case.

I have seen Playmobil sets before but for some reason size of it surprised me a bit. Playmobil people figurines are about 3 times the size of standard Lego. I don't think the sets are meant to be disassembled once they are put together so you need a bit of space if you are planning on buying more matching sets.


Xootz Boy's Quad Adjustable and Padded Roller Skates - Blue/Black/White, Size 13 - 3
Xootz Boy's Quad Adjustable and Padded Roller Skates - Blue/Black/White, Size 13 - 3
Price: £34.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing., 23 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
We are very disappointed with those skates for several reasons therefore we are unable to give them more than 2 stars.

First of all finish of the shoe part of the skates is very low quality, everything is hard in touch and rough. Two adults in the house did cut their fingers on the the sharp edge of the hard PVC tongue while trying to help my daughter put them on.

The closing mechanism is also far from ideal, it is quite hard to tighten and it does not feel secure.

At first it may seem that Xootz skates are good value but comparing to other skates at similar price tag they are much lower in quality. We have several skates in the house (for kids and adults) and all of them are much more comfortable inside the shoe and have nicer and softer finish, kids can easily put them on without help or risking hurting their fingers.

The only thing we do like about them are the wheels, they are soft and appear to be of good quality, incomparable to the rest of the product.


Salter 9037 Glass Electronic Digital Bathroom Scale, Black

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, simple scale in classy design., 23 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
We had another Salter scale measuring body fat, water, bones etc. but it has been a bit too complicated to use for my mother. It hasn't been a case Salter 9037 scale, it's just perfect.

There scale is really straightforward to use, there is no extras, as soon as you step on the scale weight displays. The measurements can be switched on the base from from kilograms to pounds or stones.

Also display unit is rather clear and big so it can be easily seen by older people.

The scale has classy design and is quite slim making sliding it under the wardrobe or bed easy. The surface of the scale is made of smooth, easy to wipe, glass.

The scale comes provided with the battery, the only thing you need to do is to activate it by pulling out a little plastic tag. It uses one coin cell battery CR2032.


3M 1436 C1 Foldable Ear Muffs - Orange
3M 1436 C1 Foldable Ear Muffs - Orange
Price: £11.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Uncomfortable, give me headache., 21 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I found those ear muffs extremely uncomfortable. Does not matter how I would not adjust them they are very tight around my ears causing headache. I have medium size head but even for my 10 year old daughter they were quite tight.

The spongy part does go completely flat and orange plastic rest on the skin. The 3M ear muffs are rather disappointing especially that came from well known brand.

Nose cancelling wise they do not block out completely the sound but make it more bearable. It feels a bit like covering your ears with hands or putting large sea shell to your ear.


Trunki Ride-on Suitcase - Frank the Fire Engine
Trunki Ride-on Suitcase - Frank the Fire Engine
Price: £39.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy plastic box on wheels that does the job., 12 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The suitcase looks very sturdy and is made from sturdy material, according to the leaflet from the same material as the adult suitcases are made. It supposed to last at least 5 years which is very promising. It can take weight of up to 45 kilograms.

It has key (connected to the leash) that locks suitcase in two places on the front and the back.

The Trunki has also 4 mini secret triangle compartments in the corners of the suitcase, on the inside. My daughter hasn't discovered them yet but I'm not going to spoil the surprise. She will find them in her own time.

My 5 year old daughter loves it, ever since the suitcase arrived she can't stop packing, unpacking it, riding on it, pulling it by the leash (provided). For this reason I think suitcase like this is a great idea. It is made to last and entertain kids during the travel and also relieve their little tired legs when necessary.

What I don't like so much about it is the fact that despite the price it is very basic suitcase, plastic box on wheels really.
To be honest I expected some kind of lining inside this box, except for very thin "pocket" for treasures and rubbery straps there is nothing inside.

The leash connects to the loop on the suitcase by a clip... which means it can be replaced with other (more comfortable) leash if needed.

Comparing to the other Trunki products we previously had (the backpacks), the suitcase handles and the leash seems to be of very basic quality, rough in touch, definitely not as comfortable as I would expect from Trunki brand. And for this reason it is 4 not 5 stars.


Philip's Children's Atlas (World Atlas)
Philip's Children's Atlas (World Atlas)
by David Wright
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £11.38

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting children's atlas not only for school., 12 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Philip's Children's Atlas is a good and interesting read with not only map of the world but also a bit of info about each region and countries in them.

I got this for my 10 years old daughter as it is recommended for ages 7-12 but my younger one who is 5 also loves flicking thought the atlas, especially thought the first and last page where the flags from all over the world are. She likes to copy them and read names of the countries.

Additionally the atlas is well made, sturdy with hard covers and quality gloss pages.


Wilton Six Hole Doughnut Tin
Wilton Six Hole Doughnut Tin
Price: £9.42

5.0 out of 5 stars High quality tray for baked doughnuts and bagels., 12 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Probably the best baking trays we have ever had, they are truly non-stick and doughnut made with them come out perfectly shaped.

They produce about 8 cm in diameter doughnuts and take 3 tbs of dough (to fill 2/3 of the cavity).

The trays can be also used to bake small bagels.

Those are probably the best baking trays we have ever had, they are completely non-stick and doughnut made with them come out perfectly shaped.

The mini doughnuts are three times smaller than standard baked doughnuts and need only 1 tbs dough per doughnut hole.

Rapesco P20 Shimma Half Strip Stapler uses Staples 26 and 24/6 mm with 20 Sheet Capacity - White
Price: £3.94

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple and sturdy., 12 April 2016
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Rapesco stapler is a simple stapler that uses standard size staples, is easy and comfortable in use.

It is of a high quality and strong. And it actually does staple 20 pages together without any problem.

The personalization window on the bottom of the stapler seems a bit flimsy, but it does not change the fact this is good and sturdy stapler for every day use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy little unicorn., 8 April 2016

Very good quality, sturdy little unicorn, better than expected.
It seems to be filled rather than hollow inside, like some other paper mache figurines.
