Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Bought this for a Louise Belcher cosplay. The ears don't stand well on their own due to their weight and being anchored by a small rectangle piece in the hat. That said a few well placed stitches takes care of that problem.

For the price I was pleasantly surprised in the quality but the item was missing the top bow and had been bent up a bit in shipping.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I found the dress to be a bit smaller than expected, and far more see through than I had been led to believe based on the other reviews. That said it worked out well for a Louise Belcher cosplay once I added some appropriately light colored undergarments.

1.0 out of 5 stars A valuable lesson about quality control, December 25, 2015
Editing to add update: I contacted hexbug/ vex with the information contained in the original review. Their response was "sorry, send the part numbers and we'll get them right out". Considering the multiple failures in the rather pricey product, the hours put into it, and the need to backtrack/ disassemble quite a bit to get back to the first set of missing parts ( which I do not believe the kit will handle) I replied with a thanks but that won't work for this situation email.
Which was met with a "sorry you feel that way, send me the parts numbers so I can send them out " response.
I am unimpressed with at least two departments in this company now, bravo.

I bought two of these kits during a summer sale and gave one to my daughter as her big xmas gift today. She spent 8 hours building. We realized early on the instructions are not complete, but she managed to figure out each missing step. At hour 7 we found out there were missing pieces ( the parts manifest is also incorrect). She was able to sub in extra, similar parts. At hour 7.25 we found out there were more missing parts, they were not absolutely necessary, though it would have been helpful to have them, so she continued. At hour 8 she put a battery into the controller unit which immediately started smoking.
I took the controller apart and found a wire melted onto a chip? in the circuit it had no business touching in the first place.

Needless to say we're all upset and dissapointed with the company and will not be spending money with them again. Not sure what I'm going to do with the second unit at this point, sadly returning them is not an option.

Sesame Street: Singing with the Stars
Sesame Street: Singing with the Stars
DVD ~ Caroll Spinney
Price: $9.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Spot on for my little guy, February 19, 2013
This DVD consists of celebrity guest song spots from Sesame Street. That's it, no banter or activity to break it up. It is exactly what I wanted for my little guy. He's Autistic and loves the songs but quickly loses interest when other things are tossed in. This video was especially handy because most of his favorite clips were included ( Feist's counting to 4, Bocelli's Time to say Goodnight, and Jason Mraz's Outdoors to name a few.) For those who care about such things the product was purchased at Target ( better price during a sale) so Amazon will not verify the purchase, but we do own and love it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Glad I didn't purchase this one, November 15, 2011
I checked this book out from our local library before deciding whether to purchase it and I am so glad that I did! This book is terrible. The writing is obnoxious and offensive. Unless you're looking for a list of all the negative stereotypes about autistic children, poorly written by someone with a complete inability to rhyme I'd skip this one.

The toy was a huge waste of money for me and a huge disappointment for my elmo-loving daughter.

The movie is a terrible movie in and of itself and has very little to do with the book it was named for.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Quite the story I read, September 24, 2005
This review is from: Tipping the Velvet (DVD)
While the miniseries isn't bad in and of itself I cannot really consider it a screen version of the story that kept me reading late into many nights. It seems to be more of a watered down cliffs notes version with added traumas to try and help flesh out the story since most of the defining moments and character development have been cut. The comment that came out of my mouth the most while viewing the DVD with my husband was " this didn't happen" followed by an explanation of why Nan was in the situation she was in or who someone was. The screenwriter did manage to leave in almost every sex scene though. . .
