ALEX Toys Artist Studio Colossal Art Set
ALEX Toys Artist Studio Colossal Art Set
Price: $34.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Big set with many colors of pencils, crayons, and markers, June 23, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
A huge set of colored pencils, graphite pencils, markers (broad and thin tip), water color palettes, crayons, with brushes, erasers, and FOUR pencil sharpeners. There is also some paper (smaller than 8x10) and stickers. It would be good for kids who are really into art or a family with more than one kid as there are duplicates of many of the colors, so that should end fighting over the same colors. It's rainbow of colors, including more than basic colors. Markers have full rich color. It's much bigger than was expected based on the initial image on the page! It will definitely keep kids busy over the summer and longer. Tops to the markers do need to be clicked into place; otherwise, they dry out pretty quickly.

3.0 out of 5 stars Got wet and stopped working, June 21, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
In the Pacific NW, it's pretty wet. Having quite a few mole holes in the back yard, this seemed like a nice humane solution to encourage them to move on. However, one heavy rain got moisture inside the battery area and it stopped working in the first two weeks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fast, small and reliable drive, June 17, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Overall, a solidly built case (aluminum), and it feels weighty enough but not too heavy. It is almost pocket sized.

Pros:
* Solid case.
* Fast install (user chooses how to format when connected)
* Fast transfer of data
* Small enough to fit in a safe deposit box or room safe
* Does not need an additional power supply
* Faster than the 2TB Seagate purchased from Costco
* Comes with all necessary cables

Neutral:
* Small white LED light. It's not terribly intrusive but is bright.
* No external power supply - while this reviewer considers that a plus, some have concerns over the internal BUS from a computer.
* No software (built-in or otherwise) for organization or storage. The good news is no bloat, but for people who need some organizational help, this may be a detriment
* Includes another USB connector type "C-Type" (reversible), but that is yet another cable to not lose.

Cons:
* Sharp edges. Why, especially on something that is pocket sized? It makes carrying it somewhat uncomfortable.

This has worked well over the past 3 weeks, and is perfect for the safe-deposit box (even the smallest size). It worked well on a Win 7, Win 8 and Win 10 machine (all found the drivers with no problems), and even after backing up years of photos, pictures, and movies, there's still a lot of space left on it. Retrieval of files is also quick for a non-SSD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid, if heavy, portable bluetooth speaker, June 17, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
For a portable bluetooth speaker, the first noticeable thing is how heavy it actually is. It's certainly not something that will be carried in a day pack out camping, but would work well for cabin or car camping. It weighs almost 6 pounds.

But the reason it's heavy is because there is a lot packed into the box! Good sound - better than the Braven, which is at a similar price point, and a much more robust battery life. It's awesome to have that length of a battery, especially if it is going out on a trip.

The speakerphone function worked well at a party where we were Skype calling. Video projected and the bluetooth voice worked excellently. Great for that purpose too.

The biggest annoyance is that it also comes with standard AV plugs - but bluetooth overrides all of that functionality, and it took some trial and error to figure that out. So, if there is a phone on bluetooth, and it's been connected before, the bluetooth remains the major audio control.

Overall, it's got good fidelity, a nice treble and decent bass range, and has a long battery life. Aside from the few quibbles about weight and the cord, it's recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent but definitely just wrinkle resistant, June 11, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
"Wrinkle resistant" does NOT mean wrinkle free. It does not maintain the sharp look without a small amount of starch and some ironing, especially after the wash. It's a nice tablecloth for an informal setting - it's not nice enough fabric for a formal table. It wrinkles less than 100% cotton but people who like really sharp looking tables will want to iron it. Stains clean up pretty easily, though, thanks to the stain treatment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice option for an outdoor table, June 11, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Before using this product, I was concerned with the zip function. How well would it really work on the table? The answer is: great. It's a nice heavy quality and the stitching around the umbrella hole and the zipper is well done. After a month of a fair amount of sun and rain, it's still holding the colors quite nicely with no appreciable fading. A quick wipe off of food and liquid cleans it right up. It's a nice splash of colors to the deck. Highly recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great activities for preschool and kindergarten ages, June 10, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Four stars because most of these activities, while fun and original, are geared towards preschool and kindergarten-aged kids. It says they are adaptable, but there aren't a lot of suggestions or instructions on how to make them activities for older kids. In some cases, a little bit of imagination can be used. For example, instead of writing a letter on a chalk fish and having the kid squirt the fish, write a word. Or write numbers and have them add, squirting the fish with the correct number. But once kids have gone beyond sight words or simple numbers, are there other ways it could be changed? This parent doesn't have enough creativity, which is why she purchases books like this. Many of these ideas are also on Pinterest but this is a more contained way to go through the activities, and it keeps one from heading down a rabbit hole of fantasy vacations, food that will probably never be made, or one of those other distractions from the pretty Pinterest pictures.

Most of the items used are things parents (or grandparents) will have lying around the house. It doesn't require a ton of outside supplies. The other downside is that at times, the adult needs to be able to put together a craft. Those who are craft-challenged may not appreciate quite all of the activities.

It's great in that it gives ideas for parents for language, science, math, music, writing, and even incorporates some global lessons. It's a pretty awesome collection. For the right ages, it's definitely a 5 star book.


Cuisinart Multipurpose Silicone Kitchen Tool, Trivet/Pot Holder, Spoon Rest, Jar Opener, Coaster, Round Heat Resistant Pad, Aqua
Cuisinart Multipurpose Silicone Kitchen Tool, Trivet/Pot Holder, Spoon Rest, Jar Opener, Coaster, Round Heat Resistant Pad, Aqua
Price: $15.01

5.0 out of 5 stars Friendly, small multipurpose tool, June 10, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
It's great when a tool has multifunctionality, and all the functions work well. It's a small round circle that works well as a hot pad - it's a good size to wrap around a lid handle, the side of a baking tray without burning fingers, or a pot handle. Like all silicone hot pads, it's heat resistant, meaning heat will eventually seep through, so it can't be held for extended periods of time, but it's fine for carrying a dish from a kitchen to the table or getting something out of the oven.

It does help gain more grip when opening jars, too.

The only small complaint is that, even with ridges, it's still pretty low to a surface when using as a trivet. However, it protects surfaces from warping from heat, except extremely hot pans. And if the pan coming out is over 450 degrees Fahrenheit, it will melt a little bit. (description does say it's rated to 425.)

Overall, a great tool to have - takes up little room, is bendy, colorful, and functions well for all its purposes.


The Tick-Tock Man: Gadgets and Gears, Book 3
The Tick-Tock Man: Gadgets and Gears, Book 3

Edition: Hardcover
Price: $13.10

3.0 out of 5 stars Loved the concept but mixed messages for the target audience, June 10, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
What piqued my interest was the main character, a smart, witty sleuth, into science, who befriends a talking dog with quite the vocabulary. Unfortunately, the teaching style ended up being a little heavy-handed. Noodles (the dog) would use a word, define it, and use it in a subsequent sentence. It got a little old after a while, rather than being endearing. There are some good science concepts introduced, however. Wally gets himself into some undesirable situations, lies to police, and basically doesn't get into trouble because he meant well. For the age group to which this is targeted, that's the wrong message.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good weight of cotton and nice construction, June 7, 2016
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Really pretty set of napkins that get a lot of compliments from dinner guests. They are a nice, heavy weight of cotton, and add a touch of elegance to the table. They pair nicely with some silver napkin holders, but work with a number of other themes. Wash and drying work well; recommend folding soon after drying as they do wrinkle a little bit. Good quality seams; very happy with this napkin set
