2.0 out of 5 stars Ball is good, 5 July 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The ball is good and is useable. The rackets looked good but when used to bounce the ball to practice 'hit ups' the racket heads bent. So the materials used are soft and bendable. So we never actually took them out of the house to play with then. Definately didn't get to play tennis with them. As this is the quality of the item and not a fault I can not exactly ask for a refund. You get what you pay for with these. I have since picked up tennis rackets from a sports shop which always has items reduced in price. Where i paid this price for a set I then had to go out and buy two rackets at 10 - 15 pounds each.

I wouldn't recomend this item based on how soft and bendable they are. The ball was fine and is in use and the carry case is also good and in use, so not all wasted money.


Meinl CAJ3MBM Cajon Makah Burl

4.0 out of 5 stars Great, 28 May 2017
I already own the American white ash Cajon by meinl which is similar to this but wider and no seat pad. These are positives compared to the white ash. This one was also a bit cheaper and the body colour difference of black and natural gives a personal preferance feel. There are some negatives in comparison too though. This was a little harder to set up the corners to snap and the tuning of the snare didn't sound as good. However it still sounds good and better than some others heard on youtube. It is normal to need to put masking tape across the guitar wires against the front plate. Despite this knowledge I didnt need to with the white ash as it had elastic across them already. So it would have been nice to have had the elastic in this one to make the strings less noisy but max snare effect. If you feel masking tape is needed in your Cajon then place it across the wires about 5- 7 inches from the bottom. Another piece can be placed near the top if needed but mine didn't need it. As this is a different size to the ash it has a slightly higher pitch across all its sounds. To adjust the corners some people leave the far screws out completely while others loosen them two turns. Either way the center top screw should be exactly as needed and the screws either side are usually loosened one turn to one and a half turns. If they stick out too much though then this is not good and need to be adjusted. I will admit that on mine one screw is crooked which is annoying as it sticks out when loosened one turn but only on one side of the screw. When you loosen the screws at the top the pitch lowers slightly and is normal. Even with two turns on the top cormers I wasn't getting the snap. So that is easily adjusted too. Just take out the top cornerscrew for now, loosen the screw below it on the side (not top) until the screw is quite sticking out. Get a small square of paper and fold it. Wedge it above the srew about an inch higher than the screw but you can put it half an inch too. Tighten the screw up to how it was. Do not over tighten. Put the corner screw back in and tighten until you get the snap sound you want. Or tighten to how it was on arrival and then loosen two turns. On the white ash I left the corner screws in at two and a bit turns loose but this Cajon I have left them out completely and used the wedge. It is not as awesome a snap/clap sound as the white ash but it is pretty good and sounds good with the other sounds produced on this Cajon. The seat pad had a sticker on it which left a stickiness to it that could be seen and felt. No problem though as wd40 can be sprayed on it and wiped with a dry cloth. Then wash with mild soap or cleaning spray. Perfect!

The bass on this is not a booming as the white ash model as it is a smaller box overall, but it is still pretty bassy. The build it good quality and although it isn't a professional snare switch Cajon, it comes quite close. Good value for money and the front plate looks really cool.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great for bending in a bay window but not great ..., 15 Mar. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was the 3.6 length and came in two parts not one, with a connector to keep the two pieces together. I thought it would be one long piece. Also it is thin and flimsy. Great for bending in a bay window but not great for anything els.

This would be fine for really light bedroom curtains. However it is not ideal for lined or heavier curtains. I had the problem of the rail detatching from the plastic wall mount clips. So after it falling down and hurting a child on the head I stopped using it. This will be good fir someone else who has a smaller width and lighter curtains, but i have had to go back to 2 thicker, heavier duty rails which I superglued together then sanded to allow the gliders to run over the join.

5.0 out of 5 stars It allowed for two layers on each book with no waste left over, 11 Mar. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this to put on the spines of music books 'Hymns old and new' and 'Source'. It allowed for two layers on each book with no waste left over. It was quite wide and placement is not as easy as it seems. One went a bit diagonal and I couldn't unstick it without damaging the book so i had to commit to that placement. Not too badly though so it was easy to arrange the second layer to almost completely hide the error. So be careful applying it. It looks ok, neat and tidy. Sharpie pens work well on it if you need to write what book it is on the spine. Arrived fast.

My nephew loves it. It is quite funny and we have had many a joke about toileting in the bed, on the sofa and on the floor! This is a very small item. Not much bigger thana large hand. But at the price Iit is obvious it isn't going to be huge! All in all I'm happy with it.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It looks more substantial in the picture. It is a thin summer hat with a mouldable metal rod around the inside of the outer rim. This never seems to be able to be moulded to the edge of the brim is in line. Instead it waves up and down. This, in my opinion makes it quite feminine. Will be good in summer sun which seems to be what it is designed for.

3.0 out of 5 stars It looks nothing like the picture anymore, 23 Jan. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have a 54cm head and it fits. It is a bit loose.

This is quite a thin fabric/felt hat and regardless of what sort of quality it show in the picture, by the time it has been turned on its side and squashed flat to putIin a plastic mail bag? It looks nothing like the picture anymore. Creases that just can't be got out change the whole shape of the hat as well. It probably did one look as good as the picture and despite the thinness of it I would have given it another star has it been in better condition.

As I only want this to pimp out with my own ribbon band choice for one event, I am happy enough with it.

4.0 out of 5 stars bought new. great., 20 Jan. 2017

This review is from: Hasbro Jenga Game (Toy)
The game is good, however ...
1) The box is bigger than the original edition of the game so when put away the blocks fall all over the place. The old style box held them in place to make start of play a lot quicker to get set up. The box used to be difficult to get the game back in though so I can see why the bigger box, but it is now too big!

2) the blocks are lighter. This means that it isn't able to sit on its own weight as well as the original designed game. Problems we had was that more often than not it is only the middle blocks that are loose enough to take out rather than the edge pieces. This spoils the game for those who piked to remove all or as many outside edge pieces as possible. The game play is also shorter as it tips easier than the old school game blocks.

The game itself is fun and a must have in any collection. Kids fun it fun and adults find it an opportunity to be competitive.

This review is from: Pictionary (Toy)
I bought a used - good condition one that was advertised as being checked and complete in the description. It arrived complete and even had a good bit of the plain paper pad and pencils. The sand timer works. The counters/dice are clean and in great contition. I don't know how many cards there are meant to be but there are a lot. If there are meant to be more I don't think I would miss them anyway. Judging by how they fit into the card holder they seem to be complete too. But as I said, even if I count them I wouldn't know 100% if they were complete.
