Quilted Northern Ultra Plush Bath Tissue, Mega Rolls, 36 Count
Quilted Northern Ultra Plush Bath Tissue, Mega Rolls, 36 Count
Price: $24.99

5.0 out of 5 stars High-quality, soft, friendly: well-rounded bathroom tissue for the family, June 2, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
As a thrifty consumer, I usually buy store brands for toilet paper at my local supermarket or at Costco or Sam's Club depending on which warehouse I'm a member of at the moment. I hadn't used Quilted Northern in a long while before getting a chance to try them out again.

I must say I'm impressed with this toilet paper. It's soft yet does not tear when you use it. It's also septic friendly in the sense that when my kids use a lot of the tissue, it does not seem to clog up the toilet as some toilet paper does. Each roll is of the right size for my bath tissue rack. (I hate it when some rolls these days are so big that they will not fit on the paper holder.)

Looking at the price, I think this is also a good value. I'm going to order this when my current stock of store-branded toilet paper runs out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent toys, great value, May 28, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This play set is of surprisingly good quality, yet don't look any close to being the real thing so your friendly neighborhood cops, if sober, won't mistake these for real weapons. The pistol comes with 2 batteries and is really a lot of fun. The holster has a built-in belt. The whole set will please any little boy into military action. My kids love the sets we ordered.

5.0 out of 5 stars Turns little passive consumers into active creators, May 23, 2015
This review is from: Lulu Jr. IlluStory Junior (Toy)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a great way to get your school-age children off the iPad and 3DS. They get to create their own storybook on the paper provides (you can use your own paper if they screw up on some of the writings or drawings). A postage-prepaid envelope is included for you to send in the story pages for free printing. There's also a coupon for a free poster of the cover page. My son just finished his story so we just sent off the pages for printing. I'll update this review when we get the printed book back. But I like the way this kit encourages today's Anerican kids to create rather than sitting back and consuming media created by other people even tons of foreigners.

4.0 out of 5 stars Children's book display that looks good but takes effort to assemble, May 7, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a lightweight book display that uses fabric shelves and is therefore best for light books or magazines. The shelves are formed from one large piece of fabric. The fabric has been folded and sewed in five places to allow the support rods to go through. The unit I received, however, had the opening to one of these 'tracks' made too small and it took me a lot of effort to get the rod to fit through. Overall, installation was quite a pain, with 20 hex screws going into openings that didn't always fit perfectly. If you have experience assembling IKEA or office store furniture, this should be a typical assembly with the same kind of endless frustration over not-so-great workmanship.

The wood frame and fabric themselves are actually decent quality, and the finished product looks decent in a children's room. the best part is probably that the display is rather portable, which can come in handy sometimes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good graphic presentations on complexities of business topics, May 4, 2015
This review is from: How Business Works (Hardcover)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is perhaps the best book on how business works I have read so far. The topics, ranging from business structure to board vs. management to marketing to financials to more, are well organized. Each topic is divided into well defined subtopics which are then treated in a two-page spread with plenty of DK's trademark graphics. I'm no newbie to the business world but this is the first book I've found that I could recommend to my kids. Not only are the text and graphic explanations easy to peruse, but the discussions are accurate, which is often not the case with many "for beginners" titles. I highly recommend this book as a gentle introduction to business. The book was written by UK-based writers but has been edited for a US audience (e.g., inc's as opposed to Ltd's).


Ultimate NES Remix - Nintendo 3DS
Ultimate NES Remix - Nintendo 3DS

4.0 out of 5 stars Tasting plate of sundry classic Nintendo 8-bit goodies, April 29, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This remix of NES titles from Nintendo is like a medley song: you get a bit of each of the old games included. To use another analogy, it's like a tasting menu. You don't get the whole game but just bits and pieces presented in different play modes.

For people like me who grew up playing these NES classics it's a way to play them again without worrying about beating a whole stage or the whole game. Just enjoy a couple of minutes of play and then back to the more pressing issues of our mundane existence.

But for younger gamers who don't have a taste for older, pixelated, 2D games, this is bound to be extremely boring.

4.0 out of 5 stars Upscaled fun for fans of the trilogy, April 29, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The first Predator film is still a classic although the other two are a little on the boring side. The Blu-Ray conversion is decent but there's a dearth of bonus materials.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not appropriate for newcomers to eBay, April 29, 2015
This review is from: eBay For Dummies (Paperback)
Like the ebay site, this book is very difficult to use for a newbie. The first chapter is really poorly written, throwing you into the midst without any gentle introduction. Anyone interested in this book should read the first chapter here to see if the style is for you.

Also, there is a lot of fluff language in the text. And a lot of bullet points. And a lot of cross references which really drove me crazy. Go to a later chapter or go to a back chapter seems to be on every page. Tons of abuse of parentheses, as well. Finally, the screenshots are tiny. Anyone over 40 will not be able to comfortably see the screenshots.

Very disappointed in this title.


Goodnites Bedtime Pants for Boys, Large/Extra Large, 34 Count
Goodnites Bedtime Pants for Boys, Large/Extra Large, 34 Count

5.0 out of 5 stars Underpants that work well as diapers for older kids, April 16, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The GoodNites bedtime underpants are the best prevention for boys who still "leak" at an older age. These L/XL sizes are very versatile and fit a wide range of boys. All my boys can fit into these very comfortably. We have not had a single leak, even when the boys dream about going to the loo and end up using the GoodNites for convenience.

Obviously, I can't wait for the day when the boys can wear regular underwear like their age peers. But I guess they have bad genes. :-D Until that day comes, they are secure in these high-quality night-time underpants.

Very high quality T-shirt that still looks new even after over a dozen washings in a household washing machine. Fits well if you get the right size. Love the design.
