Rabbids Invasion
Rabbids Invasion
Price: $33.40

4.0 out of 5 stars Fine entertainment for a young crowd, December 23, 2014
This review is from: Rabbids Invasion (Video Game)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a simple game that will entertain children around 5 to 10 years old, but bore an older audience. It is a cute idea and I have been a fan of the Rabbids and such since I first played their premiere game on the Wii. That game was far better. I'm not familiar with the show, but I suppose if you are, you are more likely to fall within the target demographic and get some enjoyment out of this tepid affair.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific game for 3+, December 22, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This game is terrific for the whole family. The suggested age is way too high. The questions are generally quite easy for anyone familiar with a decent amount of the Disney universe. My four year old has no problem answering most of the questions and even my two year old can participate and have fun playing. I would recommend this game for 3+ as long as the kid has some Disney exposure. I especially like the questions where you have to guess what another player would pick. That adds a lot of entertainment value. There is also an app that you can use on your phone/tablet with this game to get more out of it, but even without the app, the board game is well-worth the purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tough, insulative and waterproof, December 22, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great boots that hold up to the usual winter wear and tear. They keep my kid's feet warm and dry and my kid likes the way the look enough to wear them without complaining. Seems to provide good support and doesn't make my kid trip much more than usual.

4.0 out of 5 stars Crunchgantuan, December 21, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
While these Halfpops are tasty and a seemingly healthy-ish snack, they make it dangerously easy to plow through hundreds of calories. A single six ounce bag is about the same volume as a one ounce bag of popped popcorn but contains six times the calories (840 calories). I have to disagree with the other reviewers that complain about the tooth-shattering force needed to chew these little suckers. They are crunchy, very crunchy, but perfectly safe for your teeth and if you love crunchy snacks, you will probably love these. While the butter and pure ocean sea salt flavor is good (and made with real butter), I think I will try one of the other flavors next time.

5.0 out of 5 stars solid construction, December 16, 2014

I am impressed with the quality of this net and it works great on my makeshift ping pong table. It is easy to set up and stays up without any fuss. For the price, it is a great net.

5.0 out of 5 stars works surprisingly well, December 16, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is an interesting design to make a salad spinner into a multi-use kitchen accessory. In practice it works quite well, somewhat surprisingly. It is basically a manual food processor (disc not blade). If you are on a tight budget for kitchen tools this is a terrific solution.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sharp as the devil himself, December 14, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The metal on both cutters is surprisingly sharp, which means this product works well, but you have to be careful when handling the blades for cleaning. I try to handwash so it does not get left in the dishwasher for some unwitting person. Otherwise, product is cheap and very efficient for slicing fruit and dicing many things.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Price vs Performance, December 11, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
In 'The Clarinet and Clarinet Playing' by David Pino, the author recommends using a soft string, like a shoelace, to gently secure reeds with as little pressure as possible. I have found this to be the best approach, but a little less convenient and accepted as a ligature; so, I mainly use a good leather ligature for my alto saxophone. For under half the price of a leather ligature, this h-ligature does a good job of providing evenly distributed pressure and holding the reed securely without overly restricting vibrations. Also, it is none too hard on the eyes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great performance and value, December 6, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have a Kenmore C canister which I have been very happy with, as it has lasted years, unlike most other vacuums I have owned. The bags need to be replaced once in a while, but this pack of 12 will last a long, long time. They are not cheap like the generics I bought last and didn't do a great job of filtering, but they are also not the more expensive HEPA quality bags, which I have also tried. I can't say I notice much difference between these and the HEPA bags.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hassle-Free and Intuitive, December 6, 2014
This review is from: Pinnacle Studio 18 Plus (CD-ROM)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have tried Roxio and Adobe in the past and found this software by Pinnacle more hassle free and intuitive. Pinnacle Studio 18 Plus is a solid tool for most amateur video editing projects, whether it be putting together the occasional slideshow or editing a home video for a family get-together or maybe creating a short ad for your small business. I haven't run into any bugs and it has been straightforward and quick to learn how to use the basic features of the software. There are three versions of Pinnacle Studio, with this version being in the middle. It lets you work with 3D and perform live video capture, but does not let you create a blu-ray disc or 4k video. Overall, it's a solid video editing suite that I will be using in place of my old software.
