Design Toscano Girl Hula Hooping Statue
Design Toscano Girl Hula Hooping Statue
Price: £264.87

3.0 out of 5 stars well packed and surprisingly life like statue of a girl aged between about 8 and ..., 6 Jun. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Arrived in a huge box! Light enough in weight but needs people to move it about!

Inside was a large, well packed and surprisingly life like statue of a girl aged between about 8 and 10 years old.

Her details are finely cast and the hulu hoop gives her a real sense of movement.

Currently standing (or playing 😀) on our partio area she does give the garden a nice touch - my wife would like a similar dog (or cat maybe) to complete the picture!

Why only 3 stars? Price. Its very expensive. Add a star if you don't think so.


AmazonBasics CL2-rated Coaxial cable - 2.44 m
AmazonBasics CL2-rated Coaxial cable - 2.44 m

4.0 out of 5 stars Anything but basic!, 15 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
As is normal with this range, this cable is way better than 'basic'! Well made and nicely finished it looks more expensive than it is but does it work?

I've used it to replace a fairly old one connecting my TV to the wall socket and the freeview picture seems a tad sharper and brighter plus I don't seem to experience the dropping of channels that I used to.

Early days yet but certainly worth a try, especially at such a reasonable price!

L'Oreal Men Expert Hydra Sensitive After Shave 125ml

Price: £9.84

4.0 out of 5 stars Good product at a fair price from a well known brand, 15 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
There are lots of mens facial cleansers, shaving balms & moisturisers around these days and gone are the days when men didn't admit to using them!

How to make your products standout? Well, L'Oreal's answers seems to be to have loads of them! I've used a few lately and the USP (unique selling point) here is its targeted at sensitive skin.

I don't have epecially sensitive skin but can always benefit from something to sooth my face after a wet shave, so am happy to give this a go!

And I must say I like it - goes on easily and spreads thinly meaning a lot goes a long way and is quickly absorbed.

It has a slight scent too that's pleasant and not overpowering but does it work?

Yes. My skin feels soothed and the razor burn less obvious​. The lotion doesn't irritate and the 'stretched' skin areas seem reduced.

Leaves my skin feeling great for a good price too so well worth a try!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great sounding, 100 copper, budget Hi Fi cables!, 14 May 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wow! Bought very much as a stop gap until I had more time to research what cable would work best with my ageing separates, these have amazed me!

Hooked up to a Roksan Kandy MK 111 cd and amplifier, feeding a pair of AEGIS Evo floorstanders - so very much a mid range system from around 2004 - these cables are a revelation!

Bass is taughter and more tuneful and percussion and horns brighter. Peter Hunningale's JetStar Reggae Max disk from 2006 really showcases what this cable can do for fallsetto vocals, making punctuation clearer and bell like clear.

Playing Esther Phillip's wonderful From A Whisper To A Scream tells the same story, with grittier than ever vocals! Eric Gale & Cornell Dupree's guitars really bite, horns sound more life like than before.

Earth Wind & Fires Gettaway has never sounded better! Horns really crashing against each other, deep thudding bass, all brought to life via these 100% copper cables!

I guess the improvements you hear will depend on many things including the cables you've replaced: mine were XL315s by Gale Electronics bought from Richer Sounds in about 1996 so you could say they were over due updating!

100% Recommended to replace old or cheap cables !!


AmazonBasics Clear Plastic Storage Boxes with Lids - 17.5 Liters - Pack of 3
AmazonBasics Clear Plastic Storage Boxes with Lids - 17.5 Liters - Pack of 3
Price: £27.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Functional and useful, 1 May 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Very nice looking storage box, made of seemingly quite strong plastic with no sharp edges.

The top/lid has 2 blue handles that lock it firmly in place. They fit well and are nicely made.

Holds approx 50 DVDs in standard, single disk cases.

Good, functional product.


Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM Bluetooth Speaker Waterproof with Double-Up Connection - Fireball Red
Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM Bluetooth Speaker Waterproof with Double-Up Connection - Fireball Red
Price: £89.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Great budget Bluetooth speaker, that goes very loud!, 9 April 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Excellent! Pleasant looking in a chunky no nonsense kind of way, this rubber glad speaker is both water and shatter proof!

Very easy to set up and pair, this found my Lenova tablet and Samsung S6 mobile quickly and held the connection very stable. Am able to move my device about 10 feet away from the speaker and it still works. (I am in the same room)

As is often the case with budget Bluetooth speakers, the mid range/vocals is the weakest part but its still pretty clear and rhythmic.

And this speaker can go VERY loud without too much bass distortion!

Looking like a funky, round hot water bottle this is a fun and (very) functional speaker - recommend!

Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A great jacket for out door sports types and also for walking your dog in winter!

It's unique selling point is something called Ultraflow - which provides great waterproof and breathable properties - well, according to the manufacturers 😀

In use it's proved to be very effective at repealing even heavy rain and surprisingly good at keeping the wearer from getting too sweaty!

It's got all the practical features you'd expect such as detachable hood, sleeve fasteners you can adjust to suit your needs, cord at the waist and so on.

All helping you secure a good fit that obviously helps keep the weather out.

It's a comfortable fit (mine was a L size) and allows for good ease of movement: a real pleasure to use!

Two other things to note: it's expensive as these type of garments tend to be but cheaper than many similar products. And it must be washed on a dlicates setting ......

Recommended.


New Grade 9-1 GCSE Combined Science: AQA Exam Practice Workbook - Foundation
New Grade 9-1 GCSE Combined Science: AQA Exam Practice Workbook - Foundation
by CGP Books
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.95

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful but flawed, 21 Feb. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Good book for revision and testing your ability. The lay out and question for foundation level are adequate.

However for me the most disappointing feature of this practice exam workbook is that it does not provide answers. I would have thought this would be a fundamental part of a questions book.

Having to pay out for another book to get the answers seems a little greedy.

For that reason the price seems a little to high for this workbook.

4.0 out of 5 stars Functional and well made, good looking kitchen essential, 19 Feb. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Excellent, 4 bread toaster. Nicely made in all over silver coloured stainless steel too.

Perhaps a little light in weight and the build quality not quite up to my existing Dualit but it's good enough and looks good too.

Great to have separate controls for each side of the toaster and 4 slices is much better than 2 - twice as good even 😃

Takes a wide variety of thickness and will do crumpets and tea cakes easily too.

Very fair price for a product that's very functional and looks good too!


Wahl Straightening Brush
Wahl Straightening Brush
Price: £59.99

3.0 out of 5 stars OK if the price is right!, 19 Feb. 2017
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I have straight and short hair do not really for me but my wife has slightly curly hair and she often users straighteners.

She's used these 3 or 4 times now, always with the same views: easy to use, heat up quickly and the 4 settings are usefulooking.

They work OK but are not obviously better/different to others she's used.

They don't produce much 'fizz' to be fair.

Well made and (very) well packaged, they'd make a pleasant gift for someone who needed a straightener, but no need to ditch your current pair for them!
