5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and Educational, August 29, 2014
This review is from: LeapFrog Sing and Play Farm (Toy)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
My two young grandsons love this toy because of the sounds, lights, and music. Their mother likes the Sing and Play Farm because it is a one piece unit with no little pieces scattered about the living room and no pieces under the sofa cushions. This is an engaging toy that entertains the two boys aged two and three years. They like the controls which helps them with their fine motor skills and the cause/result concept.

Bottom line - This is a nice little toy for the younger set.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Little Lighter, August 29, 2014
This is a unique desk lamp, light, stylish and infinitely adjustable. The modern looking lamp looks like a twisted piece of glass tubing. Before this lamp I used four different lamps on my computer table and liked them all except for the power cord that stretched from table to outlet. The Mocreo light plugs into the USB port of my laptop which eliminates the cord hanging from the table. I keep the Mocreo plugged into my laptop, so when the laptop is on, the lamp is on.

Unlike the other lamps, this one is simple in design with just one control button for power and degree of light brightness. I like just enough light to illuminate the keyboard and keep my light on the lowest setting. Those who require more light should be satisfied with the highest setting on this lamp. Just be aware that this is an area light and not intended to light the room, just your personal space in the room.

Bottom line - I am very pleased with this attractive and very functional lamp from Mocreo.

4.0 out of 5 stars Soft Towels, August 28, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Like other reviewers I usually buy my microfiber cloths at the warehouse store where I get larger cloths and more per pack. Having said that, these Camco cloths are very nice in their own right and have a softness I don't always find in microfibers bought elsewhere. These cloths have many uses inside and outside the house like: cleaning eyeglasses, dusting screens of electronic devices, wiping items that are easily scratched, drying a car, polishing, and even drying the feet of our two canine girls. I think they actually like the soft feel of these cloths.

Bottom line - These are good microfiber cloths, and considering free shipping with Prime, not a bad deal at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars You Light Up My Desk, August 26, 2014
This is the fourth desk lamp I have sampled recently. Out of the box a simple assembly of the arm and base is all that is required. A power cord is boxed separately and for my situation is just barely long enough. Another foot or two would have been nice.

The lamp has four touch settings: reading, study, sleep, relax. Each is a different light quality and each can be lowered or raised in intensity. Sleep setting at its lowest makes a nice night light for large areas, like our dining room. The dim light guides me in the middle of the night when the dogs invariably get me up for a potty run.

On the base of the lamp's neck is a USB port for charging phones or other devices. This is convenient for those who don't want to plug anything into their computer. The quality of the materials used is good, though not outstanding. With care this lamp should last a long time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't Disappoint, August 26, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Wanting a little more zoom but not wanting to spend much money, I bought this camera to supplement my Panasonic ZS7 which has 12x zoom The ZS7 has served me well, but I wanted the extra reach and the "through glass" setting.

Before writing this review, I took hundreds of photos using all of the settings. Picture quality is good, though not spectacular, mostly the equal of the ZS7. The extra reach of this camera is significant, making the used camera well worth the 95 dollar price I paid for it. This is camera number five in my current collection.

The automatic setting works wonderfully, quickly focusing and choosing a suitable setting for the subject. Through glass setting is just OK and really not much of an improvement over the automatic setting.

I like the backlight feature that automatically registers a backlit subject and takes and combines two photos to account for that. The action is fully automatic.

Size of the DMC ZS25 is very good, as are the materials, feel and handling. Those who own or have owned previous Panasonics will find the controls and settings intuitive.

NOTE - This camera does not come with a battery charger, but instead had a cord for in the camera charging. I use the ZS7's charger for the new camera's battery, and have had no problems.

Bottom line - The DMC ZS 25 is a very good carry about camera that takes good pictures and mostly focuses quickly.

A good case for this camera is the Kodak Essentials case I reviewed previously.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Protection, August 25, 2014
I found this case at a local bargain store while looking for something else. A serendipitous find. My camera is a Panasonic Lumix SX25 which fits perfectly inside this hard, protective case. Inside are even a few slots for extra memory cards. The zipper slides smoothly using the little carrying strap. Mostly I like the belt clip which is easy to attach and reattach. The metal key ring type clips are inconvenient to put on a belt look and can be a pain to remove.

Bottom line - Love this case. Check all the listings and you might find a good deal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Having a Ball, August 23, 2014
This is a good candy alternative during the Halloween season for those looking for something different. The 72 little bouncy balls, in green, black, purple, and orange, each are imprinted with an appropriate graphic. Packets of 12 balls, efficiently packed, make up the order. I like that the balls bounce high but are not so sensitive as to go out of control and be hard to retrieve.

A purchaser might want to give these out to trick-or-treaters in lieu of or in combination with candy treats. Classroom teachers might find these useful as prizes or to give an entire class during the season. For keeping one's sanity, I wouldn't advise giving these out until near the end of the class.

Note - For personal use for one's children, kids with imagination will be able to think up all sorts of games for this fun set of balls.


Aletheia the Magic Butterfly

Edition: Paperback
Price: $13.48

4.0 out of 5 stars Magic Butterfly, August 22, 2014
Aletheia is a story for readers who enjoy the magical, mystical, and other worldly. A young prince is charged with saving his world and transforming evil with the help of the beautiful Aletheia and an assortment of charming, personified characters, including a little pet fish, dolphin, and octopus.

Because of the story's relative complexity, vocabulary, and abstract concepts I would recommend this book for those youngsters who are very good readers. It might also be a good choice for a parent who enjoys sharing a book orally with his or her child.

Aletheia is a well designed book with large pages, bright colors, and captivating images.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Adjustable Ring, August 22, 2014
This is my second wireless doorbell and by far the better of the two. When I get yet another product to review, Mrs. Spudman rolls her eyes and says something like, "Now what did you get?" The same scenario played out this time, but soon she was singing a different tune as we found ourselves both impressed by this electronic gadget.

Set up is simple. Install the included battery in the sending unit. Plug in the ringer/receiver. Then have fun listening to all of the included rings before settling on one. You may attach the doorbell ringer on to the front door area with sticky pads or four screws.

The range of the doorbell is excellent so I feel confident plugging the receiver anywhere in the house. Volume can be regulated, so on the loudest setting it can be hear throughout the house on both floors and the basement.

With so many rings one is sure to hear one that catches his or her fancy. Among the choices are familiar instrumentals and classic Americana. There are some Christmas songs and even the happy birthday song, a great choice for announcing guests at a birthday bash.

Bottom line - This is an impressive doorbell - with good clarity, volume, and ring selection.


Iams Healthy Naturals Weight Management with Chicken Premium Dog Dry Food, 12.5-Pound

4.0 out of 5 stars Iams What Iams, August 20, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This Iams weight management with chicken food appeals to our two finicky eaters, though I can't say they gravitate to this new food with special gusto. I like that the kibble pieces are small sized for our two dainty girls and come in three shapes for variety and aesthetics. This is a good dog food with good ingredients, though I'd hesitate to call it a premium food because meat is not the first ingredient.

Here are the first few ingredients: Ground Whole Grain Sorghum, Chicken, Ground Whole Grain Barley, Chicken Meal, Brewers Rice, Fish Meal (source of fish oil), Dried Beet Pulp, Dried Egg Product, Chicken Flavor, Potassium Chloride, Calcium Carbonate, Salt, Monosodium Phosphate, Choline Chloride, Chicken Fat (preserved with mixed Tocopherols, a source of Vitamin E), Carrots, Tomatoes, Spinach.........

A plus for this formula is the non-inclusion of corn, chicken-by-product meal, or soy.

Iams Healthy Naturals is "100 % complete and balanced nutrition for adult dogs."
