      A great camera

      We have lots of cameras in our family and my son was brought this camera as a gift, which he loves. It is easy to use and has 10.2 Mega Pixels. It holds its charge better than my other two cameras and can be charged either with batteries or mains. It comes with all the connections needed to contact to laptops and not to mention it looks great.

      It has the facility to take landscape photos where you take three photots while moving the camera along to create a great panoramic view. Again my son loves this feature, as he can alwasy fit everything he wants to into one photo. However I (not the most technical person) have yet to figure out how to print these on the instant picture development machines. I am sure it would not be difficullt if you took it to Boots or another firm that could do it for you.

      We recently went to Lapland and the photos in the dark came out exceptionally well. Just a quick mention but my camera did not do so well. The zoom on the camera is also particularly good.

      It has a fun facility on it, where you can have templates on the camera and take a photo of someone and a funky clown hair style is included. There are many templates making it a fun application.

      Would I buy this camera.......... Yes I would.

      Not worth the money, either buy a board game or lego.

      My son is 9 years old and is a massive Lego fan, as well as a massive Harry Potter fan. He saves his money and treats himself when I am being tight. He has almost all Lego you can possibly have for his age group and has now moved on to the next age group but loves it. He is also capable of completing it, however this turned out to be a boring task in building this game. Lego is well known for having simple instructions, which this does have, however it took an hour for the both of us to build, by this point I had had enough, and I most certainly did not want to then sit and play the game, which we could not understand.

      The concept is great, and the fun is normally in the building of Lego, but the fact it took an hour then could not play on his own or with friends due to the complexity of the game is certainly frustrating for all. My son also has the patience of a saint and will sit for hours playing Lego and yet he began to complain.

      Our family love Lego, but we will not be buying a Lego game again.

      Great invention

      I have a gas BBQ at home, however in the winter months the family like to go on adventure walks around the area we live. My 9 year old son will not let us use footpaths, we have to use the woods or grasses. This is good fun and the staff of Archie leads the way. On these walks we stop by the frozen canal and BBQ sausages. The Disposable BBQ is great for these days as it is easy to transport around on these walks and then easy to dispose of.

      It is the perfect size for a family of 6 when snacking or a family of 4 when cooking a proper meal. It also holds its heat well and lasts for up to 2 hours, no more. Unless you are BBQing bananas.

      A cheap way to eat out. lol.

      Be careful when disposing once used as the metal grill is sharp and has slit the bag it was in and fallen out the bag.

      Worth having in your goody bags

      OMG! I LOOOOOOVE THEM! I have seriously curly hair and lots of it and these are the only straightners that get my hair soft and straight. Too straight according to my mother. They look stylish and are lightweight making them easy to use. As they are small they get as close as you can get to the scalp without burning your head. They came with a free heat proof bag which is great when travelling as I do not go anywhere without them. I have even been know to take them to work in case it rains and I get caught in it. Can not remember what I done before these straightners.

      It takes seconds to warm up, unlike others and beeps when ready. However one catch they are not as good as the originals, they do not seem to heat up any where near they used to. I am not the only one in the family to notice that either. However they are still better than other makes.

      A great kettle and certainly best value

      I brought this kettle after finally submitting to the rather high price tag, but it was definitely worth every penny. A good quality kettle that is cordless and would fit in any kitchen. I have been in my home for seven years and this is my fourth kettle. My previous kettles have been cheap and cheerful and you certainly get what you pay for. I have now had this stylish 360 modern kettle for four years and friends still comment on it, yet it still has the old traditional look to it. The handle is large enough for anyone to handle, previous kettles have only been useful for small hands. It is also easy to clean and came with an extra filter. Although it easily slides out for cleaning. It also whistles when boiled and the funky light turns off.

      It has a 1.5 litre capacity, good for when you have family and friends visit. Would buy this kettle again and again.
