Disney Pixar Cars 2 Clear Display Die-cast Vehicle Storage Case Holds 30+cars
Disney Pixar Cars 2 Clear Display Die-cast Vehicle Storage Case Holds 30+cars
Offered by netStocker
Price: $49.95

4.0 out of 5 stars Holds most Pixar Cars size 1:55, June 9, 2014
This case holds standard 1:55 sized pixar cars like Lightning McQueen (please note, this will not fit cars from the Disney stores which are larger at 1:43). There are two spots which can fit odd sized cars like Filmore and Sarge and four which can fit larger cars like Mater. There is also a large open spot across the bottom for the extra large vehicles like Red and Mack. It would be nice if it could fit more of the odd shaped or sized cars since there are lots of them in a standard collection.

This can be purchased elsewhere for less than $20 but is listed here for more than double that so shop around.

My son wears a size 8 but these were at least a size too large. That said he loves these boots!


Wedding Night: A Novel
Wedding Night: A Novel
Offered by Random House LLC
Price: $9.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Standard Sophie Kinsella novel, May 17, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Fun but somewhat predictable, this book follows the stories of two sisters who are successful career women on the outside and huge emotional messes on the inside. It's worth a read if you like her novels but if this is your first then try her Shopaholic series instead.

My son really likes this book! Even though it is a counting book they do a great job in making it into a story so it reads well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun for toddlers, March 11, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
My son loves these books. For a while he couldn't get enough and brought this one for me to read over and over again as he would slide each little door. Brown Bear also has a slide and find version which is just as good. My only issue with this book is that when you read the book out loud some of the animal breeds don't roll off the tongue very easily.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK but getting cliche, March 11, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Drowning (Paperback)
If you've read her other books you can guess the answer to this mystery pretty early in the book. Just for kicks the author throws an attempted curve ball at the end but it just disconnects the reader from the storyline. I caught myself rolling my eyes and saying "oh come on" with annoyance as I finished the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for little ones, November 3, 2012
My son could not get used to standard sippy cups and was reluctant to drink from them so a friend suggested getting one with a straw. My son figured it out right away (at about 8 months) and just loves using a straw. I tried a few different brands and found we both like the playtex cups the best.

The straw is very soft but firm enough to reassemble after a go in the dishwasher. It is easy to clean and if assembled properly doesn't leak. It holds up well to being dropped repeatedly and doesn't require any special techniques to get a sip aside from those used with any normal straw. The flip straw cover is easy to open and close even for my now 14 month old.

One note which might be the problem others have been having, if you push the lower straw pash the valve during reassembly it will open the built-in valve and thus cause not just leaks but active flow up the straw from the vacuum of the airtight seal which will cause a mess even if the cup is fully upright. As long as the valve is ok and the lid is tight the cup shouldn't leak.

Quack! Quack! (Baby Touch and Feel)
Quack! Quack! (Baby Touch and Feel)
by Louise Rupnik
Edition: Board book
Price: $7.95

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book but a small caution for parents, October 18, 2012
Overall this is a great book, really cute with nice pictures and my son loves it. I do have one small warning for parents with really young kids though, the cover touch and feel has fibers which are just long enough that a baby can get a good grip and yank a few out which in most cases then goes directly in the child's mouth. The fibers are really well secured to the book so they don't come out in clumps but a few fibers will come out here and there if you child is determined and strong. Either keep and eye on you baby while they use this book or wait until they are a little older and less likely to shove the loose fibers in their mouth.

Otherwise, this is a really nice book and one of my son's favorites.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cute book about kittens, October 18, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book is a nice addition to the series which includes Quack Quack and Baby Touch and Feel Zoo's Who?. The pictures are cute and the touch and feel has some variety. My son seems to like this one although he flips through the Quack Quack book the most of the three that we own. These books are quite sturdy with nice large pages that are easy for a small child to turn. They are tall which makes it difficult to fit them on a standard bookshelf but we have a large basket on the floor for all his books so the book shape is not an issue for us. Overall a cute book and worth buying if you child likes cats.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice book for kids who like animals, August 30, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
My 1 year old son LOVES this book. I gave it to him and he immediately started pushing the buttons with a huge smile on his face. He is entertained for quite a while and it is good to distract him from mischief which is often very useful.

My only criticisms are that the sounds are a little sharp and that the touch-and-feel parts are fairly repetitive. All four are furry including the bird instead of having something else on the page be touchable like a toy. Otherwise this is an excellent book for the younger set.
