      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Overall a great hoover for picking up those crumbs.

      You can buy the Vax Gator Handheld Vacuum Cleaner H90-GA-B in many places such as Argos and Amazon. At the moment to buy the Vax Gator from Argos it costs £44.99. The Vax gator has to be one of the best handheld hoovers around at the moment. The hoover is cordless so you don't have to worry about tripping over wires etc. The gator is nice and compact so is easy to store and only weighs 1.2kg so is easy to carry around. The gator is easy to charge there is a plug that comes with it you just fix the wire into the side of it and plug it in and it charges, they recommend you charge it for about 24 hours to get the maximum power. The only negative thing is after all the charging when hoovering it's only powerful for about 6 minutes. Which is a shame so IT would only really act as an extra hoover round the house not your main one. One thing I like about the hoover is how easy it is to empty. The hoover is bagless so once it's full , you just press the button and the bottom part of the hoover unfits. Then you just tip all the bits of rubbish in the bin and make sure the filter is clean and not bits of fluff on it etc. Then fit it back on and it's ready to go again so very simple. Since getting the gator I have used it quite alot it is ideal for using to pick up crumbs etc after mealtimes. I have two 4 year olds and there always making a mess so instead of having to get a big hoover out to do a small amount of hoovering this hoover is prefect. My daughters have also been using the hoover as it is so simple to use so I have been getting some help round the house :). I have also found the hoover is ideal to use when we are cleaning out the car as it fits under the car seats and picks up well, being cordless makes cleaning the car such an easier task. So overall I would definitely recommend. You will also find this review on Ciao thank you for reading.

      Overall a great product.

      I am a bzz agent which is a member of www.bzzagent.co.uk where we get to product test items an give our reviews. I was recently sent samples of splenda to give my review on it and to hand out samples to people I no and to hear there opinions. The splenda sweet minis was one of the samples I got to try. They came in a small brown compact plastic container just slightly smaller then a tic tac container. There's a small yellow button on the side that you press to release one of the small sweetners. The box is very simple and easy to use it acts the same as a sugar cube would do if added to your drink. There is roughly 100 minis in each box. The box is ideal for putting in your handbag and taking with you and ideal for using if you buy a cup of tea/coffee while you're on the way to work and forget to add your sugar/sweetner etc. I found the splenda minis tasted very similar to sugar except has less calories. One minis has the same sweetness as a teaspoon of sugar 5g, but it's obviously alot healthier for you and so will fit in perfectly if you're on a diet. It is also great that it tastes as good as sugar which I wasn't epecting as it's healthy. You can also use the granulated splenda on your cereals and use during baking and most things that you use sugar for as an alternative. I have looked up the price of the splenda minis to give you a rough idea how much they would cost to buy and for the small container it would cost you 99p at tesco it would normally be £1.66 but it is reduced at the moment so a bargain. Another good thing about splenda is that is suitable for diabetics. On the packaging it states that 'Splenda sweet minis are made with sucralose, a sweetner that is made from sugar-tastes like sugar- but is not sugar.' I definitely recommend splenda I have now started using it instead of my normal sugar I would buy. This review is also on ciao thanks for reading.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Overalll a great buy and I definitely got a bargain.

      You can buy the Melissa & Doug Slice and Bake Wooden Cookie Set from various places including Amazon where at the moment it is priced at £11.24 but it is usually £14.99. The set is suitable for children 3 years and over. It is not suitable for going in the oven, dishwasher or microwave as they are not real and is a toy. A few months back I was looking for presents to buy for my daughters 4th birthday. Then on a forum site I go on someone mentioned that this cookie set had been reduced to £5.99 what a bargain so I was quick to buy it. I thought the set looked great as we already planned to get them a play kitchen so this would make a great accessory and with the cookies being made out of wood I knew they would last unlike some of the plastic food sets they have had before. The set comes complete with: 12 cookies 12 cookie toppings oven mitt spatula knife cookie tray cookie set So as you can see you get quite alot for the money and is all made out of good quality wood. The set looks very realistic and your child will love playing role play games with them. My daughters put all the cookies in a line and pretend to slice the cookies up then cook them on the baking tray i have found they have been using the oven glove when they put it in the pretend oven. Then they choose the topping and either serve them to us or put them in the cookie tube which is ideal for storage. The set can help your child with there fine motor skills and learning skills they will enjoy playing with the set and counting out the cookies. I think the set is great it comes in a very sturdy box so is easy to put away for storage and all of the cookie set is bright attractive colours. There are other sets that Melissa and Doug make such as: Melissa & Doug Cutting Food Box , Melissa & Doug Birthday Party, Melissa & Doug Ice Cream Play Set and many more. Each set has lots of accessories so your child can enjoy and picture they are really serving up and playing with real food. These are all priced at a similar price as the cookie set I do think if you pay the full amount for the sets then it is slightly expensive. But if you look out for when there on sale you can get a bargain and it is good to know that the sets will last because of the quality.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Overall an ok buy.

        I recently brought these fruity liquid eyeliners from avon. They are priced at £3.25 each, or you can mix and match the colour trend make up and get 3 for £5.00. Which I done so I managed to get all 3 colours for a fiver. The 3 shades that the eyeliner comes in are: "berry nice" which is a nice purple colour, "coco crush" which is a goldy/brown colour and lastly "limeade" which is a greeny/yellow colour. The bottle comes in a little cardboard box which says colour trend on and at the end of it it says which colour it is. The actual bottole is similar looking to a nail varnish bottle and is 12ml. The bottom part of the bottom is see through so you can see staight away what colour eye liner you have out it also says at the bottom the shade. The top part of the bottle which is the lid is blue and is quite long and thin. So when you apply the eyeliner it is fairly easy to do as it is similar to a pen and is easy to hold and use. The eyeliner itself comes out perfect i would say the nib isnt to thick of thin just right. The only problem i find is the colour doesnt stay on to long it wears of which is a shame and is slightly watery. As soon as I seen these eyeliners advertised I wanted them as I quite like different colours and thought it would make my eyes stand out. Also I thought the colours were very summery and fresh. When applied the colours shine, I find the darkest colour is the coco crush the other two are quite alot lighter. The thickness you want the eyeliner all depends on how hard you press down when you are applying it. If you like these eyeliners you can also buy the three colour trend eye shadows that match up with them so you can do your eyes with the eyeliner and the similar coloured eye shadow. The colours are : Coconut Crush, Crushed Berries and Lemon Ice. Overall I would say the colours are great it's just a shame they don't stay on for long.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Overall a good toy.

          The monkey hang-out is another great in my pocket play set. You can buy the set from many places including Amazon where it will cost you £9.78 and because it is over 5 pound you will get free delivery. The set states it is for children aged 4 years and over but I think it would be ok for children slightly younger as well. The monkey hang-out is part of the Jungle in my pocket sets. Other sets that you can buy in the jungle sets are: Panda Hut Play set, Koala Hut, Elephant Hut and there's many more these sets are roughly the same price and each set focuses on a different animal. There are also some bigger sets that you can buy that will obviously be more expensive. The monkey hang-out set comes with 4 monkeys each one has a name which helps each one have a character. The larger monkey which is the mother is called Madge then the three smaller baby monkeys are Marti, Memphis and Mimi. The monkeys are quite small and will be able to fit in your child's hands. They are solid with a soft texture you can't move there arms or anything but each figure is in a different position whether it's crouched down or looking like it's going to crawl. The monkey hang-out hut is shaped like a tree house that opens up. The main part of the tree hut is a nice bright pink the play house is made out of plastic and is quite firm. The play hut opens up to reveal a little house the green tree part of the house at the top opens up and bends back it then shows a bed and dressing table that is attached. Then in the main part of the house it has an attached fire place and a place where you can stick some stickers that come with the pack to make pictures on the wall. There is also an orange arm chair which comes with it which you can put in there. Outside the tree house there is a branch that sticks out that you can hang the swing that comes with it on. The swing has 3 spaces on which you can sit the monkeys on then you can swing the swing. When the hut is shut there is a small door that opens an closes. All the little extras attached and that come with the hut make it more fun for your children. I think this is a great set my daughters love it and have put it with there other collection of in my pocket toys. The set is great as when it is folded up it gets quite small so is easy to store. The set is easy to open and close so your child should be able to do it. My daughters love moving the monkeys round the tree house and pretending to put them to sleep etc. I like the way that some of the items are attached like the beds etc as it saves them from losing them. I find the prices of the set is reasonable at first when I saw it I thought it was a bit expensive as obviously isn't that big but it keeps my daughters entertained and helps with there co-ordination (moving the monkeys round the house) and role play skills (adding characters to each of the monkeys). The only negative thing I can say about the set is that my daughters love the set that much that they want more of them. So they have already got there eyes set on the elephant and bear set. Which I'm sure I'll be buying for there birthday.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Overall a nice little set.

          Another great 'In my pocket' playset that your children will love. In this 'In my pocket' collection there are eight different breeds of cats families for you to collect. The one I'm going to review is the Birman cat family you can buy it from various places including www.corinthianshop.co.uk where it will cost you £4.89 if you look around you will probably be able to find it cheaper. The set states that it is suitable for children aged 4 years and over. But my daughters are 3 years and there fine with it you wouldn't want to young children playing with them though as they could put them in there mouth. We had another trip to the shops in the weekend and decided to buy a little something for our girls and one of my daughters chose this set. It was reduced to £3.75 which we thought was a good price and my daughter hasn't put it down since she got it. There are many different 'In my pocket' toys that you can collect but this particular collection has 8 to it. There are 4 in the first series and 4 in the second series. The reason I say in this collection is each set is the same except it has a different breed of cats in it. The 8 breeds of cats are: Siamese Family, Persian Family, Tabby Family, White Family, Selkirk Rex Family, Birman Family, Bengal Family and Ragdoll Family. Each set come with a mother cat and 3 kittens each of them have names the mother cat is called Ethel and the kittens are called Shelly, Eloise and Markie. I think having names for the cats helps add character to the cats and you will soon find your children calling them by the names.The kittens are quite small so you have to be careful your children don't lose them. The set comes with a little pink soft basket that you can put the cat and kittens in. The set also comes with a little ring that you can fit the kittens on to as there is a small hole in the kittens so that you can slot them on to the top of the ring. The ring is plastic and green it has a paw print shape on the top. There is also a pendant that is shaped like a heart which has small paw prints on the kittens can also fit on the top of this. There are other various accessories you can get with differerent collections like ones that the kittens can can fit on to bracelets and hair clips etc. I think that this set is great as not only do the sets act as little toys they can play with they can also fix them on to the ring as accessories. My daughters have added these in to there 'In my pocket' collection which has quite a range of animals in it now. They have already started looking for the next set that they want to collect. I find the sets are an average price and they keep my daughters happy and entertained to so I'm happy.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Overall a great bubble bath.

            I am a big fan of avon so as soon as I heard that my friend had signed up as a rep. I was quick to get a book from her so I could stock up on all my favourite avon products. This Kids mild and gentle buble bath being one of my favourites. I normally use all the avon kids bath range on my children they do various products such as: shampoo and conditioner for different hair types, body wash, detangling spray and then the bubble bath. The little slogan for the kids range is all bubbles no troubles and I definitely agree with that. The price of the bubble bath can vary depending what the offer is I brought the bubble bath when there was a deal on that you can buy any two products from the kdis range for £3.00. In the recent book that I got it costs £2.50 for it or you can buy two products for £2.50 so obviously you would mix and match the items or buy two lots of the bubble bath as it will cost the same as buying one. I find this price is very reasonable and it is a brand that I can trust. The bubble bath is in a lovely blue frosted plastic bottle you can see the blue bubble liquid through it. On the front of the bottle there is a smiley face and the words kids in funky writing. The lid is made out of strong plastic and is a nice light blue colour with a little lid that you pop up to pour the bubble bath out of. The bottle is nicely shaped I think it is very attractive to kids eyes. On the back of the bottle it states it's mild and gentle and to keep out of reach of young children then underneath that the same instructions are repeated in various different languages. The bottle holds 250 ml of bubble bath so enough to last your child for a few baths. I normally squirt how much I want in the bath then splash it around so it bubbles. The smell is lovely it is bluberry and I find the smell is fresh and strong. The bubble bath states that it's mild and gentle and I defintely agree as my daughters have sensitive skin but they are fine with this bubble bath. When they get out the bath they smell lovely and there skin feels nice and smooth. When they have finished all of the bubble bath the bottles never go to waste. They normally end up filling them up wiv with water and squirt it around the bath. Overall a great bubble bath that I would defintely recommend. This review is also on ciao under the same name thaank you for reading.

              Disadvantages

              Overall a great buy.

              I recently brought my girls this puppy villa playset. It cost me about £10.00 at the moment there on Amazon for £9.49. It states there suitable for children aged 4 years and over but I think slightly younger will be fine with them. The playset is one of many of the in my pocket playsets. I decided to get them this one as recently I brought them the puppy in my purse set and obviously there was no house or anything with it so I thought they could use the villa. Other big sets that you ccan buy are: puppy in my pocket hospital, puppy in my pocket nursery and many more.. With the set you get three little puppies these are quite small but I'm sure your child will love them. They are very firm so wont break and are soft. The names of the pupies are Clementine, Spencer and Mush each puppy is a different breed. The sets are very small and compact but this is good as they are easy to store away when your child has finished with them. The sets sides open up so it's like a proper villa and this seperates the different sections of the villa. One side is the bathroom with a bath and mirror in it there is also a small sink that comes with it that you put in the bathroom. The bath is already attached in the room. The other side is the bedroom with a bed and you have other small accessories like a mirror and stools etc. On the top of the villa there are three little puppy beds that are attached so each one of the puppies has a bed. With the set you get various stickers that you put on the walls that represent wallpaper, carpets etc this brightens the set up and adds more features. The accessories are quite small so you just have to be careful your child doesn't lose them. I personally think the set is great some people may think the price is a bit steep at nearly 10 pound but it will last so I don't mind. Since my daughters have had it they haven't put it down. They end up mixing all there in my pocket toys up together so make the most of all the accessories. The playsets are great for your child improving there role play and keeping your child entertained.

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                Overall a nice little palyset.

                This is another of the jungle in my pocket sets. You can buy it from various places including Amazon where it is priced at £7.82 with free delivery. Asda direct had a deal on the other day where they were doing three play sets for £10.00 I seen this after I had brought it so was to late to get it. If you look around you can probably buy it cheaper. They state that it is suitable for children over 4 years but mine are 3 years and are fine with it. It definitely isn't suitable for very young children as has small parts. This set is the panda hut playset it comes with 4 small panda animals that are soft and can easily fit in your childs hands. The panda family each have names the mummy panda is Ling and the three baby pandas are: Bamboo, Chopstick and Chow Chow. Now that I have told my daughters there names they have started calling them that I think having the names for them helps add character to them. The hut itself is fairly small but all the pandas fit into it. It also opens up making it easier for you children to play with. The hut is set out with a fire picture on the back wall of the hut and a carpet infront, there is a small chair that comes with it so you can sit the panda on it infront of the fire. There are other pictures of things on the back wall.There is also a bed that is fitted on the top almost like an upstairs this is clever as it is underneath the roof so when it opens up you can't see the roof just the bed as it foldss underneath. When folded up the hut looks like a little house with a door that opens and shuts that your child can put the pandas in through. The only negative thing I can really say is that it would of been good if there were a few more accessories with the set but other then that great. I no the price may seem quite alot but to be honest I don't mind paying it as it keeps my daughters amused. The sets are ideal as there are many more to collect including: the elephant hut, the koala hut and many more. We have gradually started collecting them so in the end they should be able to have a big playset with them all out at the same time. The sets are great as they help your children with role play and my daughters put on pretend voices of the pandas. They also get to learn about the different animals. The set folds up nice and small making it easier to put away or take somewhere to keep them entertained. The pieces of the houses are quite firm so I can't see them easily breaking. Overall I think a good purchase.

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  Overall a great site.

                  I signed up to topcashback after reading a review on here. I buy quite alot of products online so I thing using cashback sites is great as you get rewarded for shopping. Topcashback is the only site that offers you the 100% cashback if you have earn over a certain amount in a month then the following month you can earn upto 110% cashback on your purchases. Another good thing is that they charge no admin fees unlike some sites. They have also started this policy if you find someone who offers a higher cashback they will refund you the difference ideal as then you know that you will always be getting the best deal. If you are wondering how you actually ean cashback then it is very simple. If you are planning on buying something online for e.g an item from boots. You just click through to the boots site through the topcashback boots link and carrying on purchasing as you normally would. Then once you have paid a few days laters or maybe sooner the item should track and your cashback will show. The amount of cashback for each site varies for example boots cashback amount is 3.5%. This may not sound loads but it is better then nothing and the amounts soon add up. You can also earn cashback for joining up to certain sites this is normally a one off payment. Recently I signed upto photobox which a great site for getting photos developed. For doing this my account was credited with £4.00 my purchase on the site including delivery cost less then £1.50 so I actually made money that covered the cost of the photos I ordered and more. The site offers good cashback when you sign up to various mobile phone deals, house insurance and lots more. I personally find it is one of the most rewarding sites. I purchase alot of clothes from mandmdirect and I find that topcashback has the best cashback for it after research other cashback sites. I also do the daily clicks on the site which means on the site there are various links on the site that you can do searches through for this you are rewarded with a few pence each day. You can keep upto date with the tracking of your orders by clicking on my accounts then earnings. Which will then show the retailer, pending, confirmed, payable and claimed cashback amounts. It will also show if you have had extra top up added on to on them. Normally it takes a month or so for the amount to be payable to you it does tell you the estimated date. I normally find this fairly accurate. I find nearly all my purchases track within a couple days there's only a few that haven't tracked. So I have put in a claim for them it has been a couple months that I have been waiting for these to show on my account, but I don't mind as I know I will get them and some orders can take upto 3 months to be completed. Now for the payout if you are wondering how you can get payed and the minimum amount you need to of earnt it is: over 1p for paypal and bacs(bank payment) and over £50.00 for a cheque. There is a certain time period you need to wait before requesting another payment. So far on the site I have earnt £83.95 I recieved my first payment of £62.57 via bacs after I requested payment it only took a few days for it to be credited to my bank account. So overall a very reliable and trustworthy site.

                    Advantages

                    Disadvantages

                    Overall a great buy.

                    This is a great padlding pool for your child you can buy it from Argos for £17.49. The paddling pool states it is suitable for children aged 3 years and over. The paddling pool is by the well known brand Beanstalk. Which I find makes some of the more cheaper baby items in Argos such as high chairs, Bouncers, play mats and toys etc but it is just as good quality. The paddling pool comes in 3 seperate pieces that fix together. There's the bright yellow main circle pool, the pink tongue which acts as slide and the main elephant face with the trunk connected. Each piece inflates seperately which is ideal I used our air bed electric pump and it only took a few minutes to inflate them. Each piece of the paddling pool fits on to the other there is rope provided to make it stable. The paddling pool also comes with some patches which will mend any holes that the pool may get. The pool measures (H)130, (W)164, (L)230cm and can hold about 300 litres of water. I found it suprisingly spacious I manged to fit in it with my girls. I like the fact that it comes in 3 pieces as if you didn't want to include the slide you could just use it as a basic circle pool, or you could add plastic balls and use it as a ball pool. The slide is easy for your child to climb onto it has handles at the top that your child can use as support. Once you wet the slide they will slide down easily. An extra thing the main trunk does is if you fix a hose pipe to the side of it then water squirts from the main trunk. My daughters loved this as they weren't expecting it and when they whizz down the slide it splashes them. We brought this for my daughters last year and never ended up using it. But then the other day it was lovely outside so we got it out for them and they loved it. The pool is very safe and fun for them. I like that the pool doesn't take long to inflate and deflate so it is easy to put down at the end of the day. I think the pool will do them all this summer and maybe next and I would defintely recommend it to others.

                      Disadvantages

                      Overall a great toy for your child.

                      You can buy these puppy in my pocket purses in many places including the online shop www.corinthianshop.co.uk which stocks all the in my pocket toys. If you look around you will see them in other shops at maybe a slightly cheaper price. On the site it will cost you £9.78 to buy this particular one (puppy in my pocket toy-with 4 puppies). We brought these for our daughters recently as soon as they seen them they thought they weree so cute and wanted them. They were on sale for £7.50 which we thought was a bargain and so brought them for them as a treat. We thought it was an ideal toy as didn't cost to much and there are lots in the set for them to collect. There are many other in my pocket toys you can collect there's kitty in my pocket, jungle in my pocket which has various different animal sets you can buy like elephants and bears etc. There are also big playsets like puppy nursery and puppy hospital etc the main playsets are more expensive they can be as much as £25 you will find these in various shops and sites such as Amazon. The sets are great as you can add to them and makes great ideas for your childs birthdays etc. The set we brought our daughters states it's suitable for children 4 years and over but my daughters are 3 and they are fine with them. It's probably due to the pubbies being fairly small. The purse is a lovely bright pink and purple colour. It has a small handle for your child to carry it around. Along the top of the purse it has pink fluff and there is a small plastic padlock with a paw print on but it's not a real lock it's just for decoration. The front of the purse has 2 small windows with see through plastic so your child can put there favourite puppies in there and can see them. With the purse you get 4 free toy puppies these are very cute. The puppies are fairly small and just fit in my girls hands perfectly. They are very soft to touch and I'm sure your child will love them as they can fit in there pocket so they can take them around with them. Each of the dogs are different breeds it's quite easy to see what they are. On a couple of them they have little accessories with them that are attached to the puppy like a ball or a little toy. My daughters favourite one at the moment is the poodle. We brought both our daughters a purse set each and the puppies they got free were different from each others. The bags are the ideal size for the puppies and are just the right size to carry. I think the sets are great as there not to expensive and they have kept my daughters occupied for hours. They end up building houses for them and making games up for them so great for role play. I'm going to carry on collecting the sets for them and if they are still in to them in a few months it makes there birthday easier for us to no what to buy them.

                        Disadvantages

                        Overall a great site.

                        I was looking at getting some photos developed and I heard about this site on a forum I go on and it had great reviews. I signed up to the site Via www.topcashback.co.uk which is a cash back site by doing this it gave me £4.00 cashback which is great. Signing up to the site is very simple once you have signed up then you are automatically credited with 40 free 6 x 4 prints all you have to do is pay postage which comes to £1.49. I find the process of ordering the photos really easy all you have to do is upload the photos you want. Then you choose the size of the photos, the design you want them on and how many you want and then order them. I found the photos uploaded really fast a lot quicker then other sites that I have been on. It's not just plain photos you can order you can also get your picture put on posters, mugs, invitations, photos books and many other things. These are all at a decent price for example for an A3 poster calendar it will cost from £18.99 so ideal for a personalised present for someone. When you are signed up to the site they send you regular emails with offers for you. The most recent email I got sent offered me the chance to buy the photo book with free delivery and 20% off all fathers' day gifts that I order. Another way you can get credits is by referring a friend for doing this you will get 50 free prints once they place an order and they will get 50 free as well. There is no limit to how many friends you order as well so you can get loads of free prints. I have also noticed that the more photos you order the cheaper the cost of the photo. When you order over 500 photos these photos will cost you half of what it will cost you for a lower amount. You can get photos for as little as 5p a print so cheaper then it will cost in a shop.. The delivery on the site is very fast you normally get your order in a few days depending on what you ordered. When I ordered the 40 free prints I received them about 3 days later I was surprised how quick they were developed. They came in a nice plastic wallet which kept them together and didn't bend them. The photos were of brilliant quality and I'll definitely be ordering more from the site.

                          Overall a great scooter.

                          This scooter is great for your kids you can buy it from various places including Littlewoods where it will cost you £35.00. But if you look around you will probably be able to get it cheaper. The scooter is suitable for children aged 3 years and over and it is a great beginner s scooter. I decided to buy my daughters a scooter as when I took them to nursery I noticed all the other children whizzing round on them. Then my girls had a go on them and were finding it difficult to get the hang on how to get the scooter to move and go fast. So I thought the best way to get them to improve was to buy them one so they could practise. I decided on Peppa Pig ones as it's one of there favourite cartoon characters. You can get similar scooters but different characters like: Fifi, Thomas the tank engine, Dora, In the night garden etc.. The scooters are great as there made out of thick plastic so are very strong. The colours are nice and bright and very unisex (red blue and yellow). There's plenty of room for you child to put there feet on the foot plate. The scooter has handlebar grips on making it easier for your child to hold onto the bars. The scooter has one large wheel at the front with a mudguard on it and there are two smaller wheels on the back this helps keep the scooter stable for your child. I think having the extra wheel also helps your child feel more confident on it as they feel more supported. There is a big plaque which you fix onto the front of the scooter with Peppa Pig on and then there are various Peppa Pig stickers to stick on the scooter which your child will love. We didn't tell our daughters that we had brought the scooters for them so it was a nice surprise for them. The scooter came in pieces in the box ready for you to put together. The instructions were fairly easy to follow everything was included except the screw driver, adjustable spanner and a hammer but luckily we had them. It did take a little while for my husband to put them together but he's not the best at DIY. The only thing that we had trouble with was putting the stickers on in the instruction sheet it showed where they should go. But every time we put the sticker on the mudguard the sticker would bubble up so would have preferred if they were on there already. Other then that a lovely scooter for your child and I'm sure in no time my girls will be racing around on them

                            Overall a great site.

                            Kiddicare is a great internet site that you can buy lot of baby items for example: cots, buggies, baby clothes, dunmmies,car seats and lots more. So as you can see there is a big variety. I find the site is very easy to navigate around at the top of the screen there is a search bar where you can type in the product name you are looking for then search for this makes it easier for you to find it. I find the prices on the site are very reasonable there are some more expensive items but you get that on all sites. I find that there is nearly always a sale on sometimes there's up to 80% cent off of the item, under the sale items there is an rrp price underneath so you can see what you are saving. I think the site is good as it gives you alot of detail on each product. If you see a product you like then once you have clicked on it underneath there is more details on the product. Firstly it shows you any reviews on the item this is done by a star rating so anyone who has brought the item can leave feedback on it and how many stars they would give it. I think this is good as it good to hear other peoples experience with the product and whether they think it's worth you buying it. Then there is the details and specification on the product which tells you the age it's suitable for, measurements and materials it's made out of etc. Then lastly it says the delivery information which states how long the delivery wil lbe When you order an item over £50 on the site the delivery is free and if it's under £50 then the delivery cost is £5.99. If you order before 5pm then your order noramlly comes the next day if after 5pm it will be 2 days. But if something is out of stock can take longer but it will tell you on the site. Once your order has been dispatched then you will recieve a message telling you. I recieved mine on my house phone this is ideal as you no that the items on the way. If the date it is being delivered isn't when you are free then you can text them and rearrange anotehr date. You can also track your order online which I found good. I am not so keen on there returns poicy which is if you recieve an item that you no longer want then you have to return the item at ur own expense which I could imagine being quite expensive is something large like a cot. You have 7 days to return it which I think is fair. So far I have only ordered one thing from the site which was a cot I went through a cashback site so I manged to receive 4% cashback of what I spent so ideal. I was kept up to date with the order of the cot and it arrived the next date as stated. I had an email to confirm the order and a message on my house phone when dispatched so you are kept to upto date. I think all the products on the site are great you could probably find some of the items cheaper in other places but I find there not to overpriced.

The cot that we recieved was of good quality and exactly as described I also found it was one of the cheapest cots around with what you got with it. I had an email to confirm the order and a message on my house phone when dispatched so you are kept to upto date. I think all the products on the site are great, you could probably find some of the items cheaper in other places but least the items are altogether So you don't have to look far. So overall in my view a great site that I plan to use again. You will also find this review on ciao under the same name. Thank you for reading.
