Fit perfectly, and easily, on our 2006 Honda Odyssey to accommodate our Yakima Skybox http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001PUZXGK/ref=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_77. Material is nice and sturdy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but small, December 2, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you're looking to flip little pancakes, this is what you want. ....otherwise, find something bigger. Quality wise it's great, as I'd expect from OXO.

5.0 out of 5 stars A favorite both for us and our daughter, December 2, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Probably one of our favorite books to read at bedtime. The narrative flows well from page to page and allows you to vary your voice and its tone, helping to keep our little one sucked in. I'd also recommend Bear Feels Scared.

3.0 out of 5 stars I'll keep it, but would recommend it (problems with iPad angle and pairing), December 2, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
For the price and what I expect will be limited use, it (now) does the job okay. I wouldn't buy it again. In particular, it suffers from two major problems that others have mentioned: (1) you can't adjust the angle of the iPad when it's docked, so unless you're sitting with the top of your iPad at eye level it's kind of awkward to use (I'll probably just keep the iPad in my Logitech folio case and use the keyboard separate from the iPad) and (2) it was a ROYAL pain to pair with my iPad. Following the direction (which you oddly have to go online to get) didn't do squat. Other online advice was also worthless. Essentially it just required constantly coming back and trying to pair it as you would pair anything and it eventually deciding to give in and do it (I was actually in the middle of preparing an Amazon return for it when I decided to give the last shot that worked).

1.0 out of 5 stars I should have known better, July 11, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Over the years, I've purchases many thermometers hoping to find one that will give an accurate reading. Digital ones have always failed me, and this one kept up that trend. After grilling some boneless skinless chicken breast for 8 minutes it told me they were 287 degrees (I checked after taking them off the grill). Of course, this type of meat is prone to overcooking so I was irritated at myself at first; but, of course also curious as to how they could be THAT overcooked. Then, I cut into the meat to find it still somewhat pink in the middle. Will stick to generally more reliable but slower reading Taylor thermometer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice given limited array of appropriately sized hats, July 11, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: i play. Babywear Sunhat (Apparel)
Given all the advice about protecting a baby's skin from the sun, I'm amazed how challenging it has been to find hats that aren't gigantic. I know my daughters a little small, but she's not overly small. However, most stores seem to assume that all kids have huge noggins. Anyway, that said, I was happy to find a hat that somewhat fits her. It still flaps down in her face a bit, but is vast improvement of others. Like that this is very lightweight too for the steamy mid-atlantic summer. I immediately cut the strings off that I assume are meant to be tied under the chin (long strings seem a rather dangerous thing to have on a newborn hat, at least in my opinion).

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality/good deal for 3 brushes, bottle brush a little fat though, July 11, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
While I love Oxo products and purchase them often, I also believe that brushes of any kind need to be replaced every few months, as the bristles wear out. That said, I'd been purchasing Oxo brushes for a long time and decided to give these a try to reduce my brush costs These fit the bill perfectly. I particularly like having the three brushes to cover a variety of tasks (e.g., the small orange brush works great for cleaning the sink, while other two do duty on dishware). My only real criticism is that the head of the bottle brush is too fat to fit into many of the re-usable bottles I have, such as the standard Sigg water bottles and some baby bottles (for those I stick with the Oxo Tot Brush).

5.0 out of 5 stars sturdy, does its supposed to!, July 11, 2013

Not much to say. Bottom-line, it's sturdy metal and makes hanging bird feeders or planters on high hooks much easier! The color is a forest green.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, but with one caveat, July 11, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Want to get something that allowed watering of plants up close (i.e., something to get water down at the base rather than just pointlessly sprinkling the leaves). Initially I was frustrated by how this Orbit SunMate worked, as like many people, I use quick-connect adapters. However, using these (including the brass variety from big box hardware stores and the orange and gray German plastic ones) did not work with this wand, as it's weight caused water to leak between the quick-connect adapters. Bottom-line, it's a great product, but if you're reliant on quick-connect adapters don't buy it (works perfect when twisted onto the standard hose ends).

Had trouble finding this at local stores, but as usual Amazon came through. It's fairly simple and can be adjusted for various heights depending on how you cinch the rope at the bottom.
