We purchased this for a toddler for Christmas. So happy we did as there is so much play value. Press the bus driver's head and the front lights flash,the motor starts and the bus travels by itself for quite a ways. Toddler's hands can easily press the head. The back door of the school bus opens and closes. 4 children figures sit in the bus and can be taken out. One boy has a ball in his hand . One boy has a backpack. All these are interesting features for the toddler. Purchased at Target and total with ta...

The storyline kept me interested from beginning to end and the time went fast. The differerent scenery was well captured and I enjoyed the countr...

One hour show on Lifetime TV. I  watched last season. I like the scenes inside her house. I can see her furniture and kitchen cupboards,for example. We get to see the inside of the master bedroom and see the lovely bedding on the bed. Tori this week is wondering if she is pregnant. Dean buys a pregnancy test. We get to see him coming out of the store with it. She takes the test and she is not pregnant and she is relieved. One scene shows her driving  her 2 youngest to day care. I get to see th...

I bought this 100 gram bar at De Luca's Specialty Foods store/restaurant. Price was $3.99. First time buying this bar. Product of Ireland.  Front label says "Purveyors of Happiness". I found the chocolate delicious. Not too sweet tasting and good chocolate flavor. Did not taste like cheap chocolate. Lots of little pieces of butterscotch and these pieces were quite hard. But very tiny so no harm to the teeth. I would buy this bar again., No nutrition facts on the wrapper which was disappointing....

Not crisp but chewy,which I like. Did not taste sweet. When I looked online for the nutrition facts I was rather shocked at the amount of fat,calories in it. Nutrition facts: for 50g: not sure if the cookie was 50 grams but this is the info for a 50g cookie  : calories 217,fat 9g,fibre 2g,protein 2g,sugar 17g,carbs 32g,sodium 200mg...
