5.0 out of 5 stars Calling all mermaid princesses, February 9, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The packaging is surprisingly charming. It's hard to make a cardboard box pretty. But they did it. When you open it up the ocean water blue jumps out at you. A+ on presentation.

Fit - the tail was the perfect length and circumference for a normal size 12. My daughter is a solid 12 and normally I get 14 just so she can grow into it, hence why I was worried. But the 12 tail is perfect even with a little room for growth

Fin fit - I had difficulty getting my daughters feet through the tiny holes the first time. Admittedly it was because I was full of doubt and didn't want to bend or rip anything. There were no instructions on how to do it (like are the feet suppose to be wet to make it easier). But then I said to myself it has to work so I just put some omph into it making sure the material was high on top of her foot and really pulled fabric over heel. It worked. 2nd and 3rd time went much more smoothly and quickly

Very realistic looking. A little pricey but not enough to prevent me from buying. Family owned business - so I support that.

3.0 out of 5 stars Strong characters who alienated themselves for most of this book, January 31, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Can you love and hate a book at the same time? This book affected me, the story stuck in my head for the remainder of the day. Reading other negative reviews helped me understand why I was still so unsettled. The growth of Tris in Divergent was spectacular and Four was the perfect match for her. He was smart, strong and able to make unemotional decisions. But Insurgent really went dark. The first few chapters was the only time Tris and Four worked together. The rest of the book they started to communicate and then shut each other out. tris spent most of the book risking her life without Four. They never really talked with each other. So their relationship did not grow. So depressing!!!!! I did enjoy all the action. Tris never stayed still for very long. If she wasn't doing a physical activity, she was having an interesting conversation. So on the edge of my seat adrenaline. Tris is a badass and I love it. There are head scratching plot twists, things that make no sense. One was so ridiculous I was waiting to find out it was a simulation or a dream. But nope, it was as it was written. I was entertained though. I just wish there was more team Tris and Tobias and more logical plot

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! Intense action and suspense., August 29, 2015
This review is from: Childhood Games (Kindle Edition)
This was a great read. The author did an outstanding job of getting right into the action and developing the storyline. This is one badass heroine. I want to be her. What she has to do to evade the police, FBI and the bad guys all while hunting down a killer or killers will amaze you. I'm addicted and can't wait until the next book!!!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the best Kinsella book out there, August 29, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Guys - Sophie Kinsella is one of my most favorite authors. I love her witty dialogue and storylines. (Can you keep a secret) But this was her first stink bomb. I literally hated every character half way into the book. Lots of manipulation and boring dialogue with no real action or moving the story forward. It pains me to say it but its how I felt while reading it. In summary the leading lady was in love and thought her boyfriend was going to propose. He didn't. She dumped him. She meets her college summer boyfriend who at the time was her soul mate. Soul mate proposes to her - she says yes. Then the boyfriend that she recently dumped realizes he needs her and flies out to her to confess his true feelings. Soul mate thinks leading lady saved his life 20 years earlier but it was someone else. Once he realizes this - he isn't in love with leading lady.........and so on and so on. This just didn't work for me

4.0 out of 5 stars Dare to taste game!!!, August 29, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Seems this is the latest craze with the kids. Basically play a taste test dare. There are 2 jelly beans of each flavor. At each flavor has a twin that looks just like it but taste's completely different. You either have selected the mmm great tasting jelly bean or the ewwww awful tasting one. I personally am mystified how they can make 'baby wipes' actually taste like baby wipes smell. But they did. And I have seen others eat the rotten eggs jelly bean. That person gagged for a few minutes. So I can only assume that its pretty accurate. Enjoy the game!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A crafter's storage asset, August 29, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Sorry guys - I know these storage cabinets are meant for screws and bolts. But I'm using it to store beads and polymer clay. Works great for both. The clay does NOT react to this plastic. Light weight so easy to hang on walls. You get more drawers in this unit for a cheaper price then those you can buy at Home Depot or Lowe's. So I recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes - I love it when I find a good read!!!!!!, August 29, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book was off the chain....which means the book was great. Loved the leading lady. Tough, smart and normal....relatable. And the leading man was all tough, smart and normal.....perhaps a little brooding. And liked to yell. But the arguing between these two was just foreplay. And the storyline held lots of action within all the detective work going on. My attention was held throughout and I don't have anything negative to say about it. I so look forward to the next book and being entertained some more. Highly recommend

3.0 out of 5 stars Get your glue out!, August 29, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A bit expensive for a product made out of particle board. My mistake was thinking everything locked in by screws but sadly this was not the case. Only the side metal brkts screwed into the particle board, everything else you had to glue. It works, and is a unique way of storing items. So I will get my use out of it (if the product holds up to what I put in it). I just didn't think it was worth the money so I gave it just an ok rating.

5.0 out of 5 stars It works!!!, August 29, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It worked just like they said it would. I have several rubber stamps full of ink because soap and water does nothing to remove ink after use. I was skeptical but I knew I needed something! So I sprayed the rubber stamp and wiped it off (with paper towel) and the ink came off!!! Awesome. I will admit that there was some ink left in the detailed tiny areas of stamp design. To solve this - I purchased the stamp scrubbing pad instead of the paper towel and the stamp was completely clean again. Yeah!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars So suspenseful., August 10, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Alien (Amazon Video)
Suspense. So refreshing. Movie holds up really well after 30+ years. My kids are now enjoying these movies. A commercial space crew are told to check out a beacon on some planet. They land and unknowingly enter an alien infested craft. What comes next you will have to watch. I have to mention that when this movie first came out I was so scared when the alien creature ripped out of the dude. But after seeing Spaceballs, I laugh when I see this scene in alien. Oh well
