      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      small and compact buy there are definately some draw backs

      This pram is relatively good for travelling out and about especially if you have a small boot or you go on a bus a lot because when it is folded it is really small so it leaves plenty of space in the boot.

      Even though the pram looks very small, please be assured that there is plenty of space for the baby and it is especially good for older babies.

      Althugh ths model does NOT come with a foot muff you can easily find a variety of foot muffs made by other companies to fit the pram.

      However, the handles are very low down and so this pram is not very good for anyone above average height as it will be uncomfortable to push.

      The wheels are quite small and do not possess very much traction meaning that the pram can be difficult to push.

      Unfortunately, this pram does not come with a basket which is very irritating. The manufacturer recommends that nothing is carried on the handle bars of the pram which means that the pram cannot carry anything except the baby which is inconvinient. The pram is so light that putting any items on the pram could easily cause the pram to tilt.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Only to be used with those that have a sturdy back!

      To be honest, I have to say that I do not like baby carriers at all, especially those that are used for babies for 4 months and under. I am a very tall sturdy 21 year old ad even I cannot compete with the back pain that comes about from having a baby pull you forward with their weight continually and it does not matter what size I brought.

      I have also found that it was not only uncomfortable for me but also my daughter whose face was almost stuck in one position, it was claustrophobic and we were both very hot after having it on for a little while.

      Furthermore the instructions are often very difficult to follow and I have found that babies really hate being put on them which is what increases the level of difficulty with these inventions.

      Getting in and out of these things is really tricky especially when you urgently need to get out. Furthermore when you bend down the babies often hate it because there head is flopping around.

      The other problem is that you cannot see immediately in front of you which is a definate hazard. I think the only people that can use these are body builders!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Not good for those that really love their music

      I am not impressed with this phone. Even though this phone is meant to be highly acclaimed for me the features were not substantial. Firstly, the camera is really not very good and to get even a picture that is not blurry you will have to take the photo in very bright lighting.

      I found that sometimes the touch screen was very unresponsive and although I have only medium sized fingers, getting the phone to understand the smaller items that you select is very difficult and frustrating.

      The music is fine if it is played through headphones but when you play music through the phone speaker it is not very loud and the sound quality is very poor which is especially disappointing.

      To add insult to injury the battery life is really poor and you have to be very careful about how you use the charge on the phone if you do not have a charger around with you. The phone is very simple to use but I really cannot recommend it.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        All-in-all a good pram

        I have to say that I did like certain aspects of the pram, however I do believe that there are certain aspects of the pram system that could be adjusted.

        One of the great features about this product, especially the pram is that you can get one for a very low price and many stores often have special offers if you look hard enough. The car seat is relatively easy to clip into both the car and the pram which is also a bonus.

        The bumper bar which is attactched to the pram is also good for older babies who like to sit forward. (My friend also had this pram and her daughter refused to lie back.)

        Another positive aspect is the shopping trolley which is reasonably sized, however when you have a baby that cannot sit back and you need to use the recline function, it can be very difficult to get to the basket.

        Also, as this pram has four sets of wheels rather then three, I have to say that I did not find it as easy to move as some of the other prams that I have had.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A really entertaining toy for youngsters

        This is an absolutely fantastic toy. I brought this toy for my daughter when she was six weeks old because I wanted to encourage her to crawl. At first she would just sit on the floor and just watch it. Slowly but surely she then started to follow after it and but 6 and 1/2 months she was crawling after it.

        My friends 7 month old daughter also enjoyed playing with the toy and would crawl after it which is a great way to get young babies to exercise.

        One of the best things about this toy is that isthat it is many different toys in one. There are three different train carriages. There are also three interchangeable toys a giraffe, an elephant and a monkey.

        All of the toys can come out which is great as young babies love to chew on the hard toys. And when you put the toys in the carriages, they can make musical sounds which delight the baby.

        The batteries also last for a long time.I have had this for two months and I have not had to change once.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Not a bad show if you have a lot of patience and a good imagination

        Honestly I have to say that although this programme appeals to the older generation, I really cant recommend this show for viewing.
        The reason is that as far as I am concerned this show is very out-dated and does not reflect what happens in every day life which is what the show is trying to achieve.

        Eastenders is a soap opera which is designed to tell the stories of the characters life in an ongoing manner so that the audience can follow the lives of the individuals. However the writers seem to incorporate story lines which just are not believeable, for me this spoils the programme somewhat.

        The murderers and people coming to and leaving albert square as they please, doing crimes that they dont get caught for and the abundant amount of promiscuity for me just do not make a good show.

        Furthermore, even though this programme is before the watershed hour of nine oclock, I would not recommend that young children watch this programme as some of the topics addressed are inappropriate.

        By far though the worst traits of this show is that some of the actors and actressess are very poor and the story lines go on for way too long.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A fantastic product

        This is a fantastic invention. If you do not have a car and need to get about then you mst buy one.

        The fisher price kit consists of a very thick and efficient flask, a lid which is designed so that you do not have to open up the flask and expose large uncontrolled amounts of hot water to young babies and a cup.

        You simply fill the flask with hot water and then press close on the lid. then you place the beaker over the top of the flask. Everything fits together to minimise space and it is small and can easily fit in any changing bag.

        The beaker is so good and keeping in hit that it can get a bottle to a really nice temperature and the beaker design means that you do not have to put in that much hot water to heat up a bottle so a full flask can heat up 3 or 4 bottles.

        There is no need for electricity and the best thing is that you can use it when there is no source of hot water available. You can even use the hot water to make a bottle from scratch if you wish.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Not bad if you are keeping it in one place

        This is a good highchair for young babies, however although it is claimed by mamas and papas that this highchair can be used from the age of 4 months, I would recommend that parents wait until a baby is about 5 months and the baby is able to sit up without too much help.

        I found that when my daughter was very young it was difficult to make the straps properly restrain her and for this reason i stopped using it and waited until she was better able to support herself.

        The wheels are a great help if you need to transport the highchair, however they do not work very well over carpeted areas and this highchair is VERY heavy considering what it is. I had to carry my highchair from room to room and this was a real challenge.

        This highchair is very well padded for maximum comfort so you can be assured that your little one is comfortable and the seat and tray area are very easy to clean.

        Unfortunately though there is no basket which can be really handy to place some of your babies feeding equipment.

        Disadvantages

        i like the taste bt i dont think it ill help you to loose weight

        I have to say that I do quite enjoy the taste of this milkshake. The strawberry flavouring is reminiscent of other brands of strawberry milkshake, however it has to be said that the milkshake is very thin and so I have to say that the textureis not good enough for me.

        Sometimes though, it can be difficlut to dissolve the powder in which case you get clusters of powder in your drink which doesnt taste very nice.

        This drink is meant to replace a meal, one that would be higher in fat and calories which is the concept of weight loss. It contains calcium (milk) as well as b, c, e and d vitamins along with lots of minerals. For this reason this drink, nutritionally is a good substitute.

        However, i found that I was hungry vey quickly after drinking the milkshake and I then ended up eating a meal very soon after I drank the milkshake.

        Because this milkshake cannot fill you up it means that a lot of will power will be needed in order to make sure that you do not end up consuming more food.

          This should be in your bathroom cabinet

          This is definately a winter essential for people that are prone to getting colds and flus. Each box contains 10 sachets of a lemon flavoured powder. Then all you do is add hot water to it and drink.

          One of the best things is that you do not need to take any tablets which is good for people that find it hard to follow things like capsules.

          Because it is hot, there is a sense of relief from symptoms like sore throat and the sensatino of the warm drink going down your throat does provide you with a source of comfort.

          I find that it takes around seven minutes for the actual medicine to start kicking in. The bad news however is that you cannot take this pregnant if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. Unfortunately you also cannot take this if you are allergic to paracetamol as this is one of the active ingredients.

          The drink definately tastes of lemon but it is slightly bitter. All in all it is a very good product

          Disadvantages

          A great time saver

          Amazon.co.uk is a huge online retailed that has a large catalogue of items that can be sent directly to your own home. Amazon does not have any shops but all its stock are featured in line.

          Amazon make it easy to find the products that you want with its simple catergorising. You can even filter your search according to price and average customer review.

          The amazon website is even clever enough to give you recommendations according to what you have purchased or viewed on their website in the past.

          Many of the items even have customer reviews and star-rating to help you decide which product you want.

          Even better, many items can receive free super saver delivery if you spend over £5.00. If you need to have the item urgently, you can have it sent via one-day delivery for a fee.

          If you do not want an item you can also sell it on amazon market place for a fee.

          Overall I have found my experience with Amazon to be really good and even the free delivery is really quick. Problems can arise however from some of the external firms that advertise on Amazon but if you have problems you can always contact amazon and they will resolve the matter.

            this is ok if your baby can sit up by themselves or crawl

            This gym is designed for babies to be used from birth and contains several interchangeable items that fit closely to the left or right side of the moust.

            The reason that it is called a musical gym is that it has a cat with a small ball attatched to it which when rubbed will play one od two short tunes.

            I have to say however that I would not recommend this toy. First of all the mat is not very padded so it may not be wise to put this product on a hard floor.

            Secondly, young babies cannot reach most of the toys. There is a girrafe and pineapple with a rattle that makes noise when they are shaken but these are at the babies feet and so babies who cannot crawl ( 6 months and below) cannot reach them.

            The other thing is that very young babies may not know how to play with this toy. They will reach out at the cat and pufin that are in front of the then but because the cat requires a lot of stimulation, they may not understand how to get this toy to make a noise.

            you will laugh from the belly!!

            I have to say that I absolutely love this show. It is fantastic and I would definatley recommend that you give this show a try if you are in when the show is on.

            The show is basically a q and a of surveys and features current events mixed in with comedy and sarcasm. It really does not get any better.

            The show is hosted by one of the UKs best known comedians at the moment. It is none other than the award-winning competition. Along with him you will generally see Mr Sean Locke along with a range of other comedians and celebrities.

            Not only will you have fun trying to guess the anwers along with well known celebrities and comedians but you will also experience laughter like you have never felt before as the host with the most apllies his creative comedic style to the show.

            A word of advice though: put the kiddies to bed.

              all in all a good product

              I do very much like this cappuccino just becuase of the fact that you can have a nice quick cup of frothy coffee without having a coffee machine or being in a cofee shop.

              Each box contained 10 individually packaged sachets and a small tub of chocolate topping. You boil the kettle although you are not supposed to add boiling water and then you stir the cofee back and forth as you pour in the hot water. Following this you put on the chocolate topping as desired and then drink it.

              It has to be said that this can be quite pricey. They are about £2.50 for a box and sometimes it can be very difficult to remove all the powder bits and make them dissolve so you sometimes get a nasty surprise when you drink it.

              The other problem is that it is not very sweet so you may need to add some sugar or coffee mate to improve the taste

              just dont but it

              This is the worst shower gel that I have ever, ever used in my life. I am begging you not to buy it until you see the label new and improved on the front of the bottle.

              Where should I start. The smell, it is a scent that I really cannot describe. I am not saying that it smells like dust bins but it is not necessarily pleasant any way. When you wash, this dull gel oozes out of the bottle.

              There is nothing at all inspiring about this gel, I would not say that it is particularly ,moisturising. In fact it did not really feel like I had washed at all. I probably would have been better off just wasing in the water itself.

              After that first shower, I just tipped the rest down the drain and but the bottle in recycling and then on my way to work I brought another brand. Never again!!!
