Giraffes Can't Dance: International No.1 Bestseller
Giraffes Can't Dance: International No.1 Bestseller
by Giles Andreae
Edition: Paperback
Price: £3.99

5.0 out of 5 stars "We ALL can dance ...", 20 July 2016
I love love love this book and my children adore it. My son, who is autistic and has other disabilities, was given it around the time we were waiting (endlessly) for his diagnosis and it sounds cheesy but it made us all think about his situation in a more positive way. Gerald has been a firm favourite ever since.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant little speaker!, 13 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Loud enough for a children's party, small enough for a medium-sized handbag, and (to my inexpert ears at least) the sound quality is great!
Saving to get a second one to pair ....

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!!!, 22 Feb. 2016
I've been cutting my ASD son's hair after we gave up disasterous trips to the hairdresser when he was 2. It used to take 3 sessions spread over separate days and required everyone else to be out, which is logistically hard work!!
Did the whole thing in half-an-hour this afternoon with these and he was SO relaxed.
Need (bizarrely) to get a left-handed set too as he has to be sitting on my knee so it's difficult to get the right angle all the way round, but that's down to us.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great simple gadget!, 15 Jan. 2016

As long as you remember use smallish potatoes, this is a winner. It probably won't last forever, but it's far cheaper seemingly more robust than some of the more complicated alternatives. Saves me loads of time. Love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Ballers!, 14 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Brilliant - speeds up making meatballs massively (I make all sorts as they're one of the few things my autistic son likes).
For anyone who finds they stick, have a mug of cold water handy to dip the tongs in between each balling ;)


Save with Jamie: Shop Smart, Cook Clever, Waste Less
Save with Jamie: Shop Smart, Cook Clever, Waste Less
by Jamie Oliver
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £6.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Eat really well, waste nothing and spend less!, 6 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great foolproof recipes, decent portion sizes taking account of useful leftovers, excellent variety, lots of veg, calorie count AND we have definitely saved money whilst eating really well. Yes, it's not designed for those in really strapped circumstances - there are a few blogs and books better geared to assist with that - and I still slightly balk at the price of some of the "mothership" joints, but I can't deny the drop in our grocery bill. In short it is my current "go to" book when planning the weekly shopping.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE this book!, 4 Nov. 2014
Love the fact that it includes instructions to cook a good many of the recipes from frozen, which is a blessing for those exhausted and uninspired week-nights. Love that this has clearly been a labour of love for the author - it is so well researched, the instructions are more than thorough and there are lots of clever ideas which were news to me (eg cooking meatballs from frozen!). Love that she has left room for inspiration rather than having loads of recipes on the same theme. BRILLIANT BOOK!

2.0 out of 5 stars Expensive!, 11 Feb. 2013
These tablets work but come from the US and are expensive.
It's worth noting that the active ingredient is 50mg of Diphrenhydramine Hydrochloride which is exactly the same (ingredient and dosage) found in Nytol One-A-Night (and other similar products) which is cheaper and readily available over the counter in the UK!
