3-0 out of 5 stars Pretty good, but not good enough
I just purchased this stroller for my 3-year old daughter and my 13-month old son.I was so excited about this stroller and I couldn't wait to get it so when it came earlier than expected, I was thrilled.My husband put it together pretty easily so no problem there.The first thing I noticed that I wasn't too happy about was the fact that the front tire doesn't swivel (which is my fault for not noticing prior to purchase).This made it extremely difficult for us since we live in Philadelphia with constant turns and corners.Having to lift up the front constantly was a hassle I wasn't prepared to deal with.The parent/handle bar adjusts to different height settings, which is good but the bad part and probably the worst thing about this stroller is that after lifting up the front at every corner, after a while the handle bar began to click down by itself!It couldn't handle the weight of my children being lifted constantly (and they're of normal size and weight!) so the handle bar began to readjust itself to lower settings.Once it happened the first time, it didn't stop doing it.I had to readjust the handle every single time I took a turn.I was so disappointed that my brand new stroller was already malfunctioning after just one walk.I'd recommend this stroller only if you live in an area where you don't have to turn a lot of corners, because it'd be worth it.My children were extremely comfortable, it handles well over just about all terrains, it's got an extremely spacious cargo compartment, and it's really easy to handle.If you live in a city like me, don't waste your time or your money.

5-0 out of 5 stars Tike Tech for my double trouble tots!
(I HAVE IT IN BLUE) What a great double jogger. We had a different one for our first set of twins but it just didnt fit the bill. for the double trouble, these are the features which make it the ONLY double jogger to buy-

* The seats graciously reqline, great for a sleepy 8 month old or a 3 year old!
* Plently of storage space, pockets on the sides and back of the canopies? WOW. And a removable spacious storage basket
* You really DO NOT need to remove the basket to fold the jogger, just be careful!
* The bar infront of the kids is great. My 3 year olds love to hold onto it, I can even attatch link-a-doos! My younger babies also like to attempt to rest their feet on it!
* The adjustable handle bar! Its great for if your rollerblading, short or tall, or walking. VERY easy
* The back wheels pop off very easily, therefore the folding is very compact, I dont have to bring down my 3rd row seating (which I NEED for 2 sets of twins!) I also fully anticipate packing this jogger and other beach neccesities in the truck when summer aproaches!
* It can handle rough terrain without a problem, it also manuevers great on mulch or grass!
* The kids are NEVER cramped (unlike in my other jogger where they would constantly bang eachothers shoulders)
* The foot rest is nice, my 3 year olds like being able to rest their feet.
* The rainshield is EXCELENT! It can just roll up on the canopies, and roll down if a sudden shower hits!
* The 5 pt. Harness is wonderful, I read the spotlight review about the stroller going upsidedown, I ALLWAYS have the harnesses on, and good thing you did too!
* Fits through a standard doorway, AMAZING!
* Can hold one kid without being unbalanced, a very nice feature

Just to let you know->
This stroller is ideal for outside activites (park, walking the dogs, stroll, beach, zoo, snow, ect.) but I would NOT recomend you using this stroller for the mall and regular outings like that, it is a JOGGER.

Experience->
When I got this stroller it was a little windy and rainy, but I just HAD to try it out, and my 3 year olds were really excited too. I had put Madison in the stroller (AND BUCKLED HER), the brakes were on, and I was just fixing Conners jacket. A HUGE gust of wind sent a bicycle that was next to us (all you parents probably know, there is always some kids toy outside!) down the drive way and I am almost certian that MAdison would have gone with it, but the brakes stopped it from rolling, it just sortof skidded a little bit and wobbled. IT DIDNT TIP! And thank goodness because a car had just turned the corner and totaled the disney bicycle! I am sure that Madison is okay due to the greatness of this stroller.

I would recomend it to ANYONE!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great stroller with some limitations
With the arrival of our new baby we wanted to purchase a double all-terrain stroller so that we, and our sitter, could continue to take walks on the beach near our house.We have the single Tike Tech and love it for this purpose.It is well made.The beach is rocky and we were fairly pleased with its ability to handle the rough spots.

Unfortunately, the double stroller is not as great as the single for this purpose.Between the weight of the stroller and the weight of two children it is a significant workout to use this stroller. (For the record, my children are 2 and 7 months and weigh a total of about 45lbs.)

That being said, we have used this stroller on regular roads, sidewalks and gravelly spots and have been satisfied with the performance.We have taken it to the Bronx Zoo and it made it through the doorways and the childrens zoo with minimal issues. It has good sized under-seat baskets and has a pocket behind each seat large enough to hold a bottle/cup, diaper and a portable pack of wipes. Also, if you are using this as a jogger, it may work for you.

As for the head-bumping;I haven't had this be a major issue but I can see how it could happen.My son is a little better than 3 feet tall and is cutting it close when the seat is totally upright.He likes to lay back more so this doesn't cause us any problems as yet.

Something else I would like to add:The Tike Tech Company provides excellent customer service and a very solid product.The stroller arrives almost completely put together and is easy to adjust. Also, they have improved the canopy.It could still be better but the changes definitely helped.
Hope this helps. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Stroller
I wanted a compact lightweight stroller for quick on the go stuff.I am so glad I purchased this stroller.It is very light and compact.My daughter loves it and so do I.I use this stroller as my primary stroller now.Down side - no cup holder but one can be purchased for it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Compact & Light
I purchased this stroller for my 4 month old daughter as a space saver and for travel.I have had no problems with the canopy slipping once I figured out that the tips of the canopy are bendabe.All you have to do is bend them a little and it stays in place.The canopy material is easily removable for travel. The metal bars that are left snap inside/on the back so they can't be broken off.

My daughter seems very comfortable and secure and mommy's back is greatful for the lightweight portability.I give the stroller 5 stars because it is a good product for those times during which the big stroller is not practical.It is also affordably priced.

5-0 out of 5 stars LOVE IT! GREAT FOR TRAVEL!
I read the other reviews.Everyone is true, its a great stroller.However the person who said it was not good for travel is wrong!Having parts broken on an air plane has nothing to do with the stoller.I have had mine for 18 months and have taken it on 7 flights! ( DID NOT USE THE TRAVEL BAG ) We even took it to MEXICO.Once I got this stroller it has been my only stroller.We are always on the go and needed a great stroller. I don't know how much they travel, but a small stroller can be brought on to the plan and left in the wheelchair area!!!!!BY THE WAY, THE EDDIE BAUER BLUE DIAPER BAG MATCHES PERFECTLY. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Seat
This is a great car seat. I have one other and a Bodyguard booster seat. They are expensive, but so is my cargo in my opinion.

Equipped with the LATCH system which stands for Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children. This Anchor system is wounderful feature, it makes installation so much easier, especially if you ever have to switch the seat into another car that is also equiped with the anchor points. Some vehicles don't have the anchor points which would require the standard seatbelt installation.

These anchore are 2 locking devices, one on each side of the car seat which clip install into metal loops which are factory installed on some vehicles inbetween where the back of the seat and the bottom of the seat meet. You can feel them or see them if you dig or spread the cushion. Check your service manual for the location.

You simply push the achors and snap them into position. Then just kneel on the car seat and pull the tethers tight. removing is a simple push of a button.

The Versa-Tether, which keeps the seat from tilting forward or backward is a nice additional safety feature. Again, with vehicles built with the tether anchors installed. You don't need to use the anchors but if you can it helps anchor the seat.

The seats are rather large, make sure they fit before you just buy one. You can do that by testing one with a local retailer. I've found that getting a comfortable reclining angle while rear facing to be harder. It's easier forward facing, but those are based on my own vehicles, that can vary so again, you should try before you buy.

I'm overall very happy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Safe, comfortable, and easy to use
After contemplating convertible car seats for a few months while my daughter was still in her infant seat, I decided to order a Britax Marathon.I liked the fact that it would allow me to keep her rear-facing much longer than most seats (up to 33 lb.) and that it would allow me to keep her in a 5-point harness longer than most seats (up to 65 lb.).

The built-in lockoffs have been handy when installing the seat in vehicles that would require a locking clip otherwise.The seat cover and comfort foam are very plush (we have the Houndstooth print seat cover) and comfortable.My daughter has always been very comfortable in her Marathon, even on longer trips.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best seat ever made!!!!
So happy that I chose the Britax Marathon. It was defineatley worth the wait after all the research that I have compiled over the past month with other mothers. Their experiences with the Britax Marathon made me feel so secure with my purchase.

If you are a parent whom is transitioning their little one(s) into a convertible. Then the Britax Marathon is the only seat you should consider. I am especially thrilled that the 5 point harness can handle the weight of a 65 lbs child and the maximum height of 49". That means my little jack will be in his seat for quite some time........thats reassuring!

I made my purchase online and after searching carefully. I purchased my seat at travelingtikes.comThere prices are competitive and sold the seat to me for $209.99 including shipping.

After recieving my seat I installed it in my car almost immediately. Even though the instructions were somewhat complicated to understand the seat did not budge once in place.

Im a happy Britax customer. I hope this info will help other parents in there never ending search for the best seat ever made! ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars So disappointed with stroller and terrible customer service
I am so dissapointed with my purchase of the Aria Stroller.My friends bought Graco stollers (and are so happy), but I had to buy what I thought was "the best", andgo with Peg Perego. I purchased the Aria because it was light weight. I spent $199 at Babies R Us. Immediately, I noticed that the carseat did not snap in easily into the stroller.Then, the stroller hood (which provides little protection) looked bent.I always had to pull the fabric to make it look even.Another problem was everytime I opened the stroller, the infant's cup holder would roll out into the street.It does not snap in correctly. There appears to be a crack in the tray. These were minor problems, although frustrating, but I could overlook them.After a few months of use, I found a small piece on the floor. The attachment that reclines the seat, fell off. It is easily a choking hazard. We cannot put it back on.Now, it is very difficult to recline the seat up and down.Next, one of the buttons popped off of the side, so I can't open and close the stroller without sticking a key or pen in the side.Obviously, this is very difficult and inconvenient with an infant.I just found another piece that "popped off", and I can't figure out where it came from. I just feel that for the price, this stroller is a piece of junk. It's very "rickety".I'm also disappointed with the support that it provides my son.The Graco strollers look like they "hug" and "support" the infant. The Peg Perego Aria model does not.
I was so upset, so I e-mailed Peg Perego. I did not receive a response.After a few weeks of waiting, I called Peg Perego customer service.I explained all of the problems that occured over 7 months of use.I was told that they would replace two parts, but they would not replace the item.The sales representative even told me that the warranty is for one year, and it's almost one year, so there's not much they can do.If a warranty is for a year, that should be for the full year. Plus, last I checked, we have 12 months in a year, not 7 months.Customer service was so unsympathetic and unhelpful. I was so surprised and disappointed.
I would never purchase a Peg Perego item again.Save your money.

4-0 out of 5 stars No more clunky stroller
I remember when my 13 yr. old was a baby. Her stroller was horrible. It was so clunky... hard to open and close. For my new daughter I purchased a Metalica Aria and I couldn't be happier. I recommend it to my neighbors,friends and relatives. I demonstrate how light weight(only 4lbs.) and easy it is to close while holding my baby on my hip. Not to mention that I live on the 3rd floor of an apartment building without elevators so, finding the right one was my main concern. A few weeks earlier I bought a PegPerego car seat. Well, to my amazement it works with the stroller.You see there is a latch hidden in the seat of the stroller that the car seat snaps into. Finally, someone got it right. No more clunky stroller.

5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT for disabled parents
I am a new mom to a little boy (5 months now) and I am a paraplegic. That means I am in a wheelchair ALL THE TIME!! When I was pregnant I searched for every light weight stroller that I could and this was the only one easy enough to lift, fold and unfold from a sitting point.

This stroller has been a lifesaver. It allows me to still have all the independance I had before having a baby.Early on, I used the GRACO snugride carseat to go with it as a travel system and I just recently started using it without the carseat.

Everyone tells me they love how my sroller looks too, so it's very stylish. =) ... Read more

Editorial Review

Sometimes you just have to put down your little bundle of joy and give your arms a rest! Butwhere can you set someone who may not be able to sit upright? The Gymini 3-D Activity Gym may be theperfect answer. This award-winning portable, washable gym is easy to assemble. Simply spread the3-foot-square quilt on the floor and enjoy a vivid animal circus in red, white, and black. Slide two pliablearches into the corner sockets of the quilt, so that they cross diagonally. Clip the beads, rattles, and mirrorsinto the hole-punched arches. The dangles can be repositioned for endless variety. Babies can lie on theirbacks and stare up at the colorful dangling toys. The gym will improve babies' hand-eye coordination, andsoon they'll be reaching, stretching, kicking, pulling, and rolling--an adorable sight! To put away the gym,simply remove the arches, fold up the quilt, and tuck all the parts into a handy waterproof carrying case.--Kathryn Gustafson ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Can't get enough
We couldn't find very many black, white and red toys so we purchased this as soon as we saw it...and thank goodness we did.Our son loves it and can't get enough of it.

5-0 out of 5 stars My son can't take his eyes off of it!!
My son loves this product.I love the bright colors and all the different interchangable toys you can purchase to go with it.Easy to wash and folds easily to store!LOVE IT!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars THE BEST EVER
This gymni is a great buy. I bought this for my daughter when she was two months old and it was the greatest toy ever.She loved looking at the toys at first and begun to kick her legs.Within a few weeks she would bat at the toys and pretty soon she could grab them.This was the greatest toy for my newborn she could lay under it for hours.Which made housework so easy for me because she was very happy under her play gym.Great toy and I recommend it for any newborn.After she was to old for the gym at about six months when she could sit up.She now enjoys playing with the detachable rattle, mirror and music box. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars New twist on tetris
I've seen a few variations of Tetris since it was first released.. well the first version I ever saw was on an Apple IIc that was a pirated and completely in russian.

Lumines is pretty simple, form 4 small blocks of the same color into a square by shifting, sliding and spinning 4 block combos that drop from the sky.Make high score, start over. You could add on that you can also play head to head with other PSP players or try a few of the other modes with specialized goals.
For some reason I get drawn into a cycle of playing one game after another cause I messed up just a little bit on the last one and could have done better.

Each time you last out a level (timed, so your not penalized by making bonus points like you did in tetris), you open up a new "skin" with a different song and visual background/blocks.

This was the third game i've bought for my psp so far and it is the most addictive.Even though its not as flashy or involved as some of the other titles, its definately packed with fun.

4-0 out of 5 stars Tetris wishes it was as cool as Lumines
Okay so a lot of other reviews will focus on things like the amazing music, flashy graphics, rotating skins, and so forth.But the fun of Lumines is mostly in gameplay, which requires a lot more skill than tetris ever did.

Everybody's going to compare this game to Tetris because it has four-part pieces that fall onto the screen where you place the pieces in order to get points and clear blocks.Let me be clear in saying that this is ALL they have in common.Clearing lines in tetris is easy, and the only skill involved is being able to move the piece fast enough before it falls.

Lumines is a whole new kind of game.Each piece is a 2x2 block where each little block is one of two colors.Your goal is to make squares of 2x2 blocks that are the same color.This sounds easy enough, but it isn't, always.Not only can you make blocks of 2x2, but these blocks can overlap each other, so a block of 3x2 works, or any other combination of shapes where the 2x2 blocks can be found.This means there's a lot of strategy in laying down a block in order to maximize the number of cubes it makes.

What's also innovative about this game is the "timeline" which scrolls across the screen, clearing the cubes you've made.That's right, a cube doesn't disappear as soon as you've made it.. it takes a few seconds, which allows you to stack multiple pieces together to form more and more overlapping cubes before the timeline swipes them away.but if you don't do it quick enough, you'll only get part of your cube cleared and be left with the rest.

The skill and strategy involved with dropping each piece in the right place at the right time is immense, and takes far more brainpower than tetris ever could.That's what makes this game so fun.

Another little feature I will mention about the skins, some of them seem designed specifically to be harder to see, so that placing the blocks isn't as easy as it was with other skins.On other levels the timeline will move slower or faster, further changing the dynamics of the game (you'd think a slower timeline would let you create more blocks, but if you've got a full screen it can be a nightmare waiting for your screen to open up).

I should point out that there are a few annoying bugs in Lumines that, for instance, won't save your scores all the time.The instructions are also pretty unclear about the details of the vs. modes, where you can attack your opponent (which moves the border of your screen over one, giving you more room to work and your opponent less), but they don't tell you exactly how to attack.Finally from what i've read, you cannot score higher than 999,999 which is a bit ridiculous for a system of this level. Hopefully someday there will be a Lumines 2 that fixes these problems, but in the meantime this game is good enough for me.

4-0 out of 5 stars Perpetual Harmony
Tetris quite frankly bores me.It dominated a large sum of my time and now I dread its remade counterparts.Why do I enjoy Lumines?It breaks out of the norm so many block puzzle-games take.A new perspective and enjoyable mix-up of gameplay makes it a favorite for the PSP, although I would not go as far as calling the game revolutionary or mind-blowing.

If you've played "Rez" or any other games set to music and beats you already know how these games strike an incredibly fun chord, and why they are must buys.But if not the I'll let you in on the twist, with each stage clear new eye-candy appears in the background and a tune begins.With the beat of the song a timer swipes across the screen stack as many of the square style blocks before the time between beats is over and rack up combos.Then watch to your amusement as your towers fall causing chain-reactions multiplying in more blocks made, and a higher score.

I admit to playing the game in a trance-like state watching the blocks flow and hearing the music blend to find myself going on half an hour of play without noticing.Unlocking new songs, and backgrounds give just enough initiative to keep playing you up into the night.

Overall Lumines is fun but not my pick over a console game with more of a story.It's perfect for a portable platform and a great game for the PSP.

5-0 out of 5 stars newMNmom
I love this product!!My husband and I looked for a new stationary toy that my 4 month old could use.She loved to stand at and early age, and I wanted her to be able to play while she did this.This has been a great for her!At first her toes barely touched the ground, but now at 6 months, she can touch the ground and has a great time in it!The other review said her son had a hard time turning around.It is a little hard to turn in, but I can tell when she wants to see the other side, so I turn it forher.She can easily move back and forth in it though and I think it's been good for her to learn how to use her feet to move around.She loves the bells, and really starts dancing when the music plays.She also loves the mirror and the stationary toys.I agree it is big and not easy to move between rooms.But it is so worth it in the end.I would recommend this to anyone.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fun for my little one
My 7 month old daughter loves the intelletainer, we got this when she was 5 months, it keeps her busy. She loves to play with the the plastic gears, the mirror/clock and the toys a lot. The only thing I didn't care for is its big and wide that it won't fit in between doors if you want to move it to another room.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful
We actually bought this entertainer when my son was only three months old, so we could have it ready when he was ready.I saw it in the store and was so impressed with everything it had on it, especially all the educational things!It was really easy to put together.My son was a lap-standing baby pretty early, and he would want to stand all the time, which, of course, it's hard to find the time for.I put him in this for the first time when he was just four months old, and he cried at first because his feet didn't reach the ground...so I just put a pillow underneath, and he loved it.At first he just liked to pull and chew on the bell, but now he does everything (he's not quite six months).He turns himself around, he plays with the clock/mirror...this keeps him busy for up to half an hour, sometimes a bit longer!I would definitely recommend this! ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your money on this swing!
This swing was given to us as a gift while I was pregnant with our 3rd child. I was excited as the other swing I had for my first two were the "old fashioned" wind up kind. The first thing I noticed was the fact that even as a newborn my daughter looked huge in this swing, and she was only 5 pounds. The seat is very small. Next, we could not get my daughter to like this swing at all. It was loud, even without the music, the motor clicks, the toy mobile was loud and she screamed the whole time she was in it. The toy bar scared her terribly. So we decided to wait until she was older to use it.. now 4 months old, she still hates it. She screams so loud that she makes herself sick. So I took it back to toys r us where it was purchased. They were so fantastic! They took it back no questions asked, and gave us full credit. I decided to let my daughter try out the swings while we were there. The decision came down to the ocean wonders cradle swing and the baby papasan swing. The choice was clear, hands down. The baby papasan. First the seat was huge, she is now 14 pounds and has TONS of growing room in this, she lays so comfortably, and adores the birds and leaves mobile and the mirror on the bottom of it. It was quiet and the music was not annoying. The ocean wonders was good also, but the seat also seemed very small. Yes the baby papasan is more expensive but worth every penny and because of the size I guarantee you will get alot more use of it than this item. Now she loves her swing, naps in it, plays in it, and gives me much needed free hands!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Swing
My daughter, and we as parents, love this swing!We bought this when my daughter was two months old and she still loves it at 18 weeks. She will play with the link-a-doos for a while then falls asleep.She also enjoys watching the toybar.I like the fact that the seat inclines, there's a variety of music w/volume control, and a swing speed switch.However, I will admit that any speed above the #1 setting seems a bit to fast for my comfort.Also, the swing doesn't take up a lot of space when not in use as the legs fold together - this also helps in moving the swing.I cart this swing all around my house and take it the grandparents when visiting. It is very light to carry.Overall, I would recommend this product to any parent.

4-0 out of 5 stars need to be a bit bigger
Thisis a good one. I like the colors and the music. However, it could be made a little bigger for comfort and also to accommodate infants of upto 9 or 10months (or upto 40 pounds). We bought this for my sister when she is 4 months and I am not sure if she is going to be in there for too long... ... Read more

Editorial Review

Halo 2 is one of those rare video games that garnishes attention from regular folk who wouldn't know which direction to point a game controller. With more than 1.5 million pre-orders and a massive release party in Times Square, the game enjoys the sort of buzz, and sales, generally reserved for boy wizards. But does it merit the hype?

Opening Scene

Halo 2 opens with a cut scene in the Covenant Holy City of High Charity. Much has happened since Master Chief (that's you) created so much havoc for the Covenant in the first Halo, and the Arbiter has much atoning to do for his failures. This first cut scene is long, but the lush graphics, orchestral sound, and polished voice talent for both this and other cut scenes as well as the game itself put most animated television shows to shame.


Much has happened since Master Chief created so much havoc for the Covenant in the first Halo, and the Arbiter has much atoning to do.

In the end, though, Halo 2 is unabashedly a first-person shooter. It has a Mature rating and is not meant for kids. Gameplay is constant and intense. No sooner is one bunch of aliens taken care of than another descends. The controls are identical to the first game so those familiar with it will be up and blasting in no time. And the sound and graphics have been beefed up so that Halo 2 is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful console games available.

Opening Fire

Most of the weapons from the first game return, although strangely the MA5B Assault Rifle (the default weapon in the first game) is not available. There is a single melee weapon known as the Covenant Sword, but the controls for it are the same as that for all the shooter weapons, making it difficult to direct. Also, for a new twist, you can hold two of the smaller guns at the same time and shoot double-fisted.

As for vehicles, the old favorites are back and joined by a few new, mostly Covenant wheeled monsters. Some improvements have been made to the AI so that the nonplayer characters can drive without running into too many obstacles while you man the turret. This improved AI also has enemies ducking for cover, and the banter from both the Marines and the bad guys has undergone massive improvements so that it no longer sounds quite so repetitive.

On Your Own

The most significant change in the single-player game is with Master Chief's much-touted defensive suit. At the beginning of the game, he is told that the suit has been upgraded, but it's really undergone a severe downgrade. In Halo 2, the player has only one lifeline. Unlike in the first game, there is basically no defensive shield on the suit, making gameplay tougher. It can often take multiple--sometimes a maddening number--attempts to make it through thorny parts of the game.


Or with a Friend

Finally, no review of a Halo game is complete without mentioning multiplayer. One of the main reasons to buy Halo 2 is the ability to play through Xbox Live, a feature not included in the first game, which was among the original releases for the Xbox. Multiplayer for Halo 2 uses all of the same weapons and vehicles as in the single-player game, and the types of games available in Halo (King of the Hill, Slayer, Capture the Flag) return with a host of new maps. Multiplayer Halo 2 offers customizable profiles, control layout, and screens as well as a voice proximity feature, where you can talk with other players via an Xbox Communicator so that those closer to you sound louder than those farther away. Players can also create both permanent clans and temporary parties in the Xbox Live world. Undoubtedly, this multiplayer feature alone ensures that Halo 2 will remain a top-selling game for years to come. --David Morel

Pros:

  • Lush graphics and orchestral sound
  • Constant, thumping shoot-'em-up action
  • Multiplayer available through Xbox live

Cons:

  • Suit downgrade makes single-player often overly difficult
  • Get ready for some bleary-eyed mornings

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent sequel with few very small issues
For the first few years in the xbox's life, I was the most anti-xbox person among my friends.That all changed the summer of '04 when I played Halo for the first time.It was a blast, and gave me that rush that only a few games have.

So here we are with the sequel to the game that made an xbox worth owning in the first place.Halo 2 isn't a great game; it's an excellent game.With perhaps the most perfect fps controls ever, killer graphics and replayability that shoots through the roof, Halo 2 is the new killer app.

First of all, if you played Halo, do yourself a favor and play this game on at LEAST the normal difficulty.To get the full experience out of this game I would really recommend playing through on Legendary.Trust me on this.When you finish the game you will release the biggest sigh of relief since beating Ninja Gaiden.

**SPOILER ALERT**

Many people knock the single player game, and this is MOSTLY (not always) for two reasons:
1)For part of the game you play as a covenant elite, and
2)The ending is one hell of a cliffhanger, I guarantee it will illicit a "WTF!?" from nearly everyone.

**END OF SPOILERS**

I personally don't mind those two aspects of the game.Once some people get past that, it's hard to deny that the single player game is fun.With the addition of dual weilding, boarding, more interactive enviroments and an increase in the number of enemies you'll face, Halo 2's single player game is a beast on its own.The lush graphics and rich colors will leave you in awe, and if you pair it with a 5.1 surround sound system, you're in for a real treat.There are a few minor problems with the game, such as glitches in a couple of cut scenes, but the end product easily overshadows this.But the fun doesn't end there...

For those with xbox live (or with friends, for that matter), multiplayer will give you hours upon hours of fun.I personally prefer 8-16 player team system link games, but xbox live is fun, too.There are so many game variants, and I don't think I've played all of them yet.And with the addition of 9 new maps available to everyone sometime in June, the life of this game just got a shot in the arm.With the single player, this makes Halo 2 the new killer app for xbox, and will probably remain the most popular until we see xbox 360 later this year.

5-0 out of 5 stars ...you're entitled to your opinion.
Halo 2 was a good game, exceptional by my standards, sure it was a hassle getting through the level with the lack of defenses... but geez...

I personally liked this game for these reasons
-Good gameplay, remniscent of Halo TwT
-Solid sound and graphics
-Good story

My gripes...
-Semi-repetitive gameplay
-Dual weilding clutters up the m***********g screen!
-The health system is harder to deal with... TwT but that's okay, Masta Chief's still gangsta...

P.-Friggin-S.- Samwise, you're entitled to your opinion, albeit a very idiotic one... but your misconception of us being "retards" is based off of non-concrete evidence and your lack of tolerance for other people's opinions. I understand that you believe we are, but seriously, go back to lonely nights with vaseline, kleenex and a copy of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show", because with an attitude like that, you obviously have no friends, life, or parents to teach you manners that and you apparently need a girlfriend. Same goes to anyone else who rags a game and can't do any better. So to all of you I'd like to say you're not worth being called retarded because poor Terry Schiavo doesn't deserve to be associated with people unable to do stuff with a fully functioning brain, so shut up, and don't blow my Xbox high!

5-0 out of 5 stars lol did he say fable and halo stinks?!
Thie game is a must it has a good soundtrack cinemas and gameplay it will keep you buisy just playing levels to mess around with the vehicles the only things bad about the game is they changed the asult rife model (i like the original assult rife better) and they made it so you play as a elite all else is fine halo 3 is going to be at e3 so all u xbox live players out there get the multi player expansion pack for 20 dollars (you need halo 2 to play) i think microsoft will make new features such as peaking around corners and new viechles dont think hallo series will end this franchies will be a very long and popular series.

spoiler alert








people are saying the story for halo 3 is master chief travels back in the past to kill the people or aliens that made halo but that would stink cuz it would be like pong a never ending battle so master chief will destroy it aliens will destroy master chief! and all those game he said stunk is NOT TRUE KOTOR IS FOR EVEN STAR WARS HATERS!it a very good game that has multiple paths and it is a hack and slash not turned based

5-0 out of 5 stars An AT-AT with Wheels
There's one number that stands out after you dump the contents of the Clone Turbo Tank out on the table: 801. Eight-hundred and one, as in, how many pieces just spilled out of the box. For those not familiar with LEGOs, well, it's probably the most LEGOs you've seen at once that have yet to become something. It's daunting and a bit mind-boggling.

That being said, once all the pieces come together (and they will, somewhere around two hours later), you'll doubtlessly be pleased: you've got yourself an AT-AT with wheels, ready to roll over Seperatists with the vanguard of the Clone Army.

The Clone Turbo Tank is oddly named; as I said before, it's an AT-AT with wheels. Perhaps somebody got tired of the pantheon of walker acronyms in the Star Wars universe (AT-ST, AT-TE, AT-AT, AAT), and said "okay, okay, enough with the acronyms!" I suppose you could call it the CTT - but don't, it's not a walker. It's a tank - a turbo tank.

The set itself is nothing short of amazing. The main set piece, the tank, is huge and trundles along with ten big wheels on four axles. The suspension is really neat, allowing the tank's body to roll on either side to nearly a 45 degree angle. I guess that's necessary for all the high-speed 'turbo' turns the tank will be making on the battlefield. The body is sturdy and covered with access plates; you can access the cockpit, the engine, the troop bay, and the rear utility area easily. The troop bay is massive - I haven't tried, but you could probably stuff ten troops in there. The cockpit has two seats, for whoever you make driver and General Veers.*

As for armament, the turbo tank has plenty. Apparently designed for wading into the midst of enemy formations, it has dual-mounted heavy blasters in the front and rear. For dealing with pesky starfighters, there's a cockpit-mounted turret and another mounted on the spine.

A unique aspect of the turbo tank is its "crow's nest", an adjustable lookout post located towards the rear. I don't know what kind of Clone Trooper would want to be up there - anyone in the lookout post is a choice target. The set comes with binoculars, so whichever clone trooper has been bad, give him the binoculars and tell him, "lookout post." He'll think twice before misbehaving in the future.

The set also comes with two other pieces of equipment - a speeder and a turret. The speeder is a nice add-on, and gives LEGO the excuse to package the BARC Trooper (a light green version of the famous Scout Trooper) with the set. The turret is reminiscent of the turrets in Empire Strikes Back, the ones that did such a very poor job of stopping the AT-ATs. Since the set's picture depicts a Battle Droid operating the turret, it's safe to say it will also do a poor job of stopping the Clone Turbo Tank.

Finally, the set includes a good variety of mini-figures. We get light-up lightsaber Mace Windu, yellow-pauldroned Clone Trooper (according to Star Wars lore, he's an officer), regular Clone Trooper, Jet Clone Trooper (this guy looks like he has the most fun of any Clone Trooper, ever), the aforementioned BARC Trooper, and the ever-inept duo of Battle Droids. My only real complaint with this set is there is no driver - obviously, anyone can sit in the cockpit, but having an AT-AT driver-style driver would have been nice.

So, if you find an AT-AT with wheels an attractive concept, swallow the $90 USD price tag and get rolling, Trooper!

* Set does not include General Veers.

5-0 out of 5 stars The best star wars episode III set
This thing is FREAKIN AWSOME !!!!!!!!!!!!! i got this set when it came out and it's amazing. The extra touches like the scout trooper with his speeder and commander cody are nice.Thou there are a few bad things about it like the mounted turret on the top falls off constantly and Mace Windu its nice that he comes with a light up lightsaber but that makkes him unplayable with because his head is way too loose, his hand with the lightsaber in it can't spin (...). Still even with thoes 3 problems it is still a must have for any lego star wars collecter or any lego collecter!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great set, lots of play value, and durability to boot
This impressive Lego set wasn't my first choice when I saw the new selection of Star Wars Episode 3 sets.However, it quickly became a favorite when I started working on building it.This is a truly wonderful set that is a treat to build and play with.

The Clone Turbo Tank comes with seven minifigs.Four clone troopers, two battle droids, and Mace Windu with a light-up light saber.Two of the clone troopers are alike.The third has orange detail on his helmet and uniform.And the fourth is like a scout trooper in a green uniform.The battle droids are stock minifigs from Episode 1.Mace Windu has a purple light saber that lights up when you press down on his head.One of the clones is outfitted with a little jetpack device reminiscent of Jango Fett's.There's a tripod mounted cannon for one of the droids.And we also get a nice speeder bike and cannon with moving turret.

While this isn't the best assortment of Lego minifigs, Mace and the Clone Turbo Tank make up for it.The tank itself is sort of like an AT-AT on wheels.It has a body that instantly brings the AT-AT to mind, and five sets of wheels on movable axles.Each axle can move independently of the others, allowing this vehicle to drive over rough or rocky terrain.The middle axle has a spring-buffered suspension to keep the vehicle's body level while the wheels roll along over uneven terrain.

The front of the tank has a nice little cockpit that seats two figures.Behind this is the power plant, which looks similar to the Wookiee Catamaran's power plant (bronze and silver pieces).Two flip-down panels offer access to the power plant (nice touch!).The main body of the vehicle is a storage bay for the large cannon, with doors on either side that flip down.The payload bay isn't as spacious as it could be, but there's still room in there for our troops should they all want to get on board.The rear of the tank has a little platform that raises and lowers, and a flip-open hatch atop so a trooper can peek out to see if anyone's sneaking up from behind.Atop the tank are movable gun turrets and a scout tower that can be raised and locked into place (the "mechanism" that does this is pretty inventive, considering the pieces that are used here).A trooper can sit atop the lookout tower to get a better view of the battlefield.

This durability of this model is a notable improvement over the Lego AT-AT.The side panels are attached to the frame of the vehicle in a similar manner, but they seem to be more durable (perhaps because they're constructed from large pieces).The "head" of the vehicle is also a big improvement over the AT-AT's head.The top and front are flip-open panels, while the sides are attached to the frame.There's just one remaining problem of the sides easily flipping out and down because they're attached to the frame with a single Technic connector.They shouldn't fall apart or come loose.They just flip down too easily.Still, the design on the whole is a big improvement.It's a great-looking vehicle, and you can actually play around with it (which is more than I could with the AT-AT).I had my Lego AT-AT on display for a good number of months, and I was afraid to touch it lest I accidentally break a part off.Not so here.The rugged Clone Turbo Tank is ready to be played with.

This set has just over 800 pieces.A good assortment of Technic and regular parts to work with.Colors are mostly gray and dark gray, with a bit of dark red.Inside there is a bit of hodge podge.A little brown and yellow here and there, but nothing too annoying.

As mentioned, this set comes with a good number of accessories for your tank.A cannon with rotating turret.A small cannon for a battle droid to operate.A jetpack with wings for the aerial trooper.And a nice speeder bike.

Aside from the small gripes I've already mentioned, I have a few additional ones.Mace Windu's battery isn't replaceable.I'm not sure what we're supposed to do when his battery runs dry.The light-up light saber is held in his right hand, which isn't movable.You can move his arm up and down, but you can't pose the hand.The light saber is held at an angle.But these are very minor complaints.I suppose that's the price we pay for a light-up light saber.I should mention that Mace's light saber is tinted purple, but the light is blue.Maybe it's just the lighting in my home, but his saber comes off looking more blue than purple when lit up.

I believe the faults mentioned here are all pretty minor.This set gets a big thumbs up from me.I had a great time assembling it and playing around with it.And the improvements over the AT-AT here are numerous. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Fully equipped for the uber rescue mission, this souped-up spacecraft doubles as a jet and a Rescue Heroes command center. The top of the jet flips open to reveal an electronic screen and an operations deck, where Keytron, a robot, plugs into the control board to relay missions to the team. Included are two tethered backpacks which, as Rescue Heroes fans know, allow the action figures to communicate. What's more, the jet itself transforms into a giant robot, with a deployable space pod as the head and a tank-like tough-terrain vehicle down below. This is a sturdy, sizable toy that those who enjoy Rescue Heroes ought to love, and it contains plenty of moving parts. Also included is a C.D. Moon action figure in a red space suit. --Andy Boynton ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars i love this toy!
hi, im 10 years old and i really like this toy! there are so many diffrent things it can do, it is well worth the money!!! there is a little vehicle thing that a rescue hero can ride on, the front of the ship can be used as a spacepod (the ship is NOT a good flying toy but the space pod is simple to fly),the front and the vehicle can be made into a giant robot,the top can be made into a hang glider, and one of my favorite parts: IT HAS A COMMAND CENTER WHERE THE RESCUE HEROES REALLY INTERACT WITH EACHOTHER!!!! I have two mission select robots with thing i call "backpacks" and their names are matt medic and gil gripper. they are also compatible with the command center. i also have a cool robot called fire stomper and billy blazes. NOTE (the fire stomper comes with billy blazes and neither are compatible with the command center but fire stomper can move in a neat way!) then i have the robot that came with the ship.

in my opinion out of all the people i have billy is the best :)

you may be wondering why a 10 yr old is playing with this but i know a 12 year old and many other 10 and 11 yr. olds with this toy. i don't play with it like let's go put out the fire, or something, i play with it like the robots are attacking and stuff, very fun toy! i totally recommened this toy and these other toys below:

2-0 out of 5 stars very disapointed
This was the only toy my son requested from Santa and what a letdown. I think that Fisher Proce rushed it for the holiday season because it does not compare to the quality of the other toys. It falls apart and really does not do much for the size or promise of the ads. I hate this hunk of junk that now takes up a lot of space and I have learned my lesson for next year.

I thought my console didnt work at first, too.It turned out I just needed to switch the on/off button which is annoyingly hidden behind one of the 2 attached backpacks (the one on the right). ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Overall Great Starfighter
This is a great Lego SW set for both play & display. The set comes with three Advanced Recon Commando pilots, two blasters, and an R5-D4 unit. The ship itself is quite beutiful. It is a bit larger than appears in the picture.

The ARC-170 has a secret compartment for dropping "bombs". The great thing is, the utility used to operate the s-foils also operates the bombs making quick and easy operation of the craft possible.

The s-foils and wings are weak and flimsy although when you set the ship down (with s-foils closed) the ship rests perfectly balanced.

The R5-D4 is a major +Plus+! Everyone loves something diferent than the same old R2 and the red droid matches the ship.

The clones are extremely cool because these pilots are exclusive to this set and are elite ARC troopers. The con though is that only two of the three clones have blasters.

The biggest con is the gunner cockpit. There are holes in the sides and contract from the ships beauty to ad playability. This can easily be fixed with a couple of plates from your own collection but makes it impossible to remove the gunners.

Overall, this is a great starfighter. I love its clones and droid too.

2-0 out of 5 stars The triwinged fighter
This toy gives kids the proper building skill to help them later in life. It also is a lot of fun to build it and use it to make your own star wars arwy(belive i tried it). I belive that this toy is destaned for greatness in the hearts of children. I really like this toy and I'm sure lots of people will agree with me.

the lego ARC 170 starfighter is awsome!it comes with 3 clone pilots and an astromech droid.you can turn the gear on the back to open the wings.you can also pull on the gear to drop the bombs.the ship is very durable. if you are going to collect some Star Wars Episode 3 legos,you MUST get the ARC 170 Starfighter! ...

2-0 out of 5 stars HORRIBLEPRODUCT AND VERY UNSAFE!!!!!!!
I purchased this for my daughter and thank god it was before she was born. This is absolutely the worst product I have ever purchased! I bought it because of the pattern, the canopy and the flip down changing table. I thought it was too perfect! Well, it was far from perfect! I had a very hard time setting it up. And the bottom would not stay down on the floor, so it would keep folding up. The bottom plastic was all cracked, little hairline cracks and it was missing a piece to the changing table, so I couldn't even assemble that part! It was very heavy to move around, so not good for travel. And for as long as it took to put it up, I didn't even want to touch it to take it down. Because the bottom wouldn't stay down, it would cause the it to fold up underneath which in turn could make it collapse. My husband helped to disassemble this product, and found it very flimsy and even difficult to take down. I was very disappointed with this and am glad I was able to return it to the store and exchange it for another one. I would have never put her in this and would have thrown it out for the trash if I wouldn't have been able to take it back. I purchased the graco newport bears pattern and am more than pleased. It was half the price and was easier to put together. It doesn't have a changing table, but it will work great as I am not worried about it collapsing or folding up on her. Safety overrides luxury anyday with me! So please before you puchase this, read all the reviews and just be aware that I feel that this is a very unsafe product and I want to warn all parents about my experience with it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Hard to set up!
Wouldn't recommend. Very hard to assemble & I found this extremely hard to set up & take down. Very disappointed in this product.

1-0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT...
...unless you are able to open it up before buysing and check to make sure it can actually be assembled!

After spending nearly an hour trying to decipher the vague and poorly detailed instructions/diagrams for assembly, I reached a point where I could not continue where one of the support poles could not be properly inserted into the bassinet fabric.

After contacting customer service, apparently the area had been "overstitched" to where the pole could longer be inserted all the way through and I was told I would have to order a new bassinet fabric altogether and wait an additional 7 business days for it to be ordered and sent to me.(And Judging from the rep's precognitive "guess" as to what my problem was, it was also very apparent that this was not an isolated issue but probably one affecting several other customers in the past as well.)

After realizing the total lack of professionalism practiced by this company - selling a defective product - I began to seriously think about simply returning the product in exchange for a NON-Baby Trend product; and after now reading several other reviews warning against the safety of this product as well, I will MOST DEFINITELY return it and never buy another Baby Trend play yard product again!

Save you money, time, piece of mind - and YOUR BABY'S LIFE - by not buying this product!!! ... Read more

Editorial Review

The Aquadoodle isn't a pool or tub toy, but without water it's no fun at all. It's just a drawing mat after all, but kids will like the novelty of its disappearing colors. The 81 by 53-inch drawing mat is large enough for several kids to doodle on at a time, using the included magic marker pens that do not transfer color to other surfaces (to our knowledge …). Color from the pens appears when water touches the mat; it then fades out without a trace in 60 seconds or so. That's it: no ink, no paint, and no mess.Diane Beall ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Lots of fun
My 2 year old loves his aquadoodle.He got the aquadoodle and some extra pens and the stamps.You need to order at least one extra pen so you can play with it with them.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for anywhere doodling
I recently saw this toy at a friends house. I had to get a 2 year birthday present and decided to buy this and buy one for my 3 year old and 14 month old. My 3 year had a great time during quiet time the other day and even figured out to wet her hands and feet and make prints. Today my 14 month old played with it while I premade some dinner. I like the fact that it doesn't write on anything else and my 14 month put the pen in his mouth but it is only water. It will be great on trips.We got the extra pens and stamps and that has been wonderful. Love it.

5-0 out of 5 stars A hit for kids of various ages!!!!
This product is AWESOME!!!!My 2 year old son received this for Christmas.Since it only came with one pen, I bought the extra pens so he and my 4 year old daughter could play with it at the same time.They both love it and I don't have to worry about them fighting over who gets to play with it.It is big enough, they can both draw on it at the same time.
Yesterday, I also brought it with us while my daughter was in gymnastics.It folds up easily enough to take it places and I stuck the pens in the middle of it so they would not get lost.There are plenty of other kids that go there, so they are all sharing each others toys.It definitely was a hit as kids from 2 - 10 were down drawing on it with him.There was constantly 3 kids drawing on it at a time and they ended up filling up the mat by the end of the hour, so I just layed it out when I got home to complete drying.However, most of the time when it is just my son and daughter using it, any of their drawings dry fast enough that it DOES keep them entertained for quite a while.

Editorial Review

Rockstar Games has partnered with DUB Magazine -- the authoritative source on automotive lifestyles -- to redefine the racing genre with Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition. With this installment, the series that took racing from the tracks to the open urban streets is back, and the stakes have never been higher.

Get ready for insanely fast driving with open-city racing in Atlanta, San Diego, and Detroit. The online competition brings together up to eight players with the most comprehensive vehicle customization every seen in a video game. You'll be driving the hottest licensed real-life SUVs, import tuners, muscle cars, choppers, and luxury rides on the road today. Plus, you can trick them out with the latest rims, trims, and upgrades just like the pages of DUB. Without a doubt, customization goes above and beyond any other game with Midnight Club 3. The level of detail dedicated to your car's look and feel is unprecedented. Not only can you trick out your car, but you can select your favorite chassis, brakes, exhaust, and even power-boosting nitrous oxide!

Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition has more speed, more choices, and more chrome than any game has ever packed under the hood. It rocks hard, and delivers slick, fast, intense driving action in challenging environments. Step up, pimp your ride, and get ready to hit the streets for high-adrenaline urban racing! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars This game is TIGHT!
It's like Pimp My ride and The Fast and the Furious in one. You can customize yur own car and evrything. when its snowing in detroit you can do donuts and when you customize your car, hydrolics are the first thing to buy. if you put on the no damage cheat - ontheroad - you can crash into as many things as you want, and your car wont even get dirt on it. its really annoying and fun when your in the middle of a race and a cop is right on yur tail. I just rented it but i know im gonna buy it. you will not waste your money on this game, its worth every penny. And the soundtrack is the best. its got 50 cent, twista, petey pablo. but it also has really stupid disco songs too, but this is the funnest racing game ive ever played.

5-0 out of 5 stars Koo fast blingin
possibly- no the BEST game from the midnite club series, has to be this 1. I am hooked on it, but the only bad thing bout this game is: when i have everthing set up for the online feature, i start it and it says the network cables are not plugged in, AND THEY ARE! Good unlockables and customization like in NFSUG2, custom colors and decals- tight, new vinayls-sweet, and good cars, wish it had the rx7 though.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not as fun as Need for Speed: Underground series!
I really tried to play this game over and over to be addicted to it but the replay value is very poor to me on this game. The controls are not that good as EA's Need for Speed: Underground series. I played both games this one and Underground 2. I leaning more towards EA's car game now b/c this Midnight Club 3 just is not what I expected. What happen to the real street car racing that Rockstar Games left out such as Drifting races and drag races. The main focus is on unlimited customization of 60 cars and circuit races. Don't get me wrong... I love street car challenges but this game doesn't give me a reason to come back and play it after each race. There is no strong storyline so it's just race after race. Gets kinda of boring after awhile. I probably have to trade in this one to get Underground 2 which I think is slightly better but has it's flaws too. Any Need for Speed: Underground gamers like me might want to rent before buying this game b/c the first 2 Midnight Club games I thought weren't as good either. Here's my other ratings on the game:
Graphics: 4/5
Presentation: 4.5/5
Controls: 3.5/5
Replay Value: 2/5

1-0 out of 5 stars Doesn't last, battery dead in 15 minutes!!
I bought this product for my son because we already bought the pink corvette for my daughter and loved the product better than Peg Perego or Power Wheels; BUT THE BATTERY DOESN'T LAST LONGER THAN 15-20 MINUTES PER CHARGE!! We even tried switching the battery with the corvette's but it still dies in 15 minutes. I think something is wrong with the fire truck! For $300. it should last longer than 15 minutes per day! GREAT CORVETTE THOUGH!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware
The product advertised is NOT made by Safety 1st!!!!It is really made by Kids Trax. The only diffence we see is the steering wheel, so far. Even the picture inside the box on the flyer is not the same truck. But my kids enjoy it the same. Makes me wonder though, I thought I was buying a product from one company, that I have bought before, but it is some other company making this product.

1-0 out of 5 stars Miserable service
ToysRUs offered to sell me this toy in their store, then told me that it was unavailable and that I had to come back to the store and wait for 45 minutes to get a refund.They said that the toy was not available anywhere.I found it immediately available from their on-line site, but at $120 more than the in-store cost. Unfortunately, this kind of a bait and switch routine has made this toy and all of their merchandise suspect. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Love this car seat!!
This is not the car seat I originally wanted but I bought it because I thought that it had a lot of padding and would be comfortable for my 8 month old daughter.I am glad I did buy this car seat because it is wonderfull.It was easy to put together, easy adjusting, and very comfortable for her.I loved the leather look on the sides of it too.I would defenitly recomend this car seat to anyone.My sister even bought the same one for her daughter and loves it as well.

5-0 out of 5 stars I loved this carseat after I got to know it
i bought this seat without a lot of information, however have come to love this seat. The adjustment strap is akwardly positioned however my daughter who hated her snug ride enjoys it.FYI I am from the Chicago area and the Fire Department installs carseats for FREE!!, it took them about 10 minutes because I do not have the latch system in my 2000 accent and they also showed me how to work it and it is fairly easy.They put some styrofoam noodles in it which made the adjuster easier to access and it reclines more.I like that it has a level on the side to make sure it is properly positioned.The technician was also impressed with the carseat and gave it a good critique in comparison with some others.

4-0 out of 5 stars Love it overall, but has a few snags
I bought this carseat for my son and LOVED it! I love the cup holders, the pattern is nice and versatile. But the cover is not very practical in the fact that I washed it after my son got sick and a corner of it shredded in the wash. Sadly, new covers are very pricey. Overall I love this seat, just wish the cover was more sturdy. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow! My daughter loves her ABC's!
My daughter received this as a gift when she was too young (24 months old) for it.I held it off to the side for 6 months & then finally decided to give it to her right before she started preschool.

She loves to sing her ABC's now.The Fridge Phonics set reinforces the letter she is learning in school.We bought her a carry case for the letters & fridge magnet.She will carry it around & change the letter whenever she's in the mood.

I think this is one of the best educational toys out there for the alphabet.It tells the child the name of the letter, the sound(s) it makes & a few words.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great learning toy
We have had this on our fridge for about 5 weeks now and my grandson loves to play with it, he now says the sounds before the little machine tells you the sound.

It is made very sturdy as my grandson has already had the peices thrown all over the place and the little machine too and there is no sign of any hard play with it, it still looks brand new.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great, and durable toy
My 3 kids all love this, they can sing along with it and change letters so keeps them entertained.
One of them threw it in a sink full of water and it still works even after non stop singing for days!! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars MVP Baseball Is As Good As Manny Himself
This game is great for any baseball lover. Unless you're a Yankees fan. The game has Manny Ramirez on the cover and talks about the Red Sox historic 2004 season in the previews. It's got great features, such as the Owner Mode, and Mini Games. Both are new to the MVP titles this year. The Owner Mode lets you build your own ballpark and control your team for up to 30 seasons and try to make it the best franchise in the MLB, while keeping finances and fans in mind. Mini Games are a great way to just have fun. Improve on your hitting or pitching, or rack up MVP points to put towards things like, legendary stadiums, and famous players from the past. The game controls are crisp and the graphics are great. The songs get a little old, but they are still creative. The Homerun Showdown is still a hit, but there is still no actual Homerun Derby. I give this game 4 3/4 out of 5 stars for graphics. 5 out of 5 stars for gameplay, and 6 out of 5 stars overall. Yes. It's that good.

5-0 out of 5 stars Big Inpruvment
Mvp has made a huge inpruvment from last year. Last year you ether strike out or hit a homerun. Now you hit singiles and doubles. The grafices are soooooooo much more deitailed. THe new owner mode lets you start with a begginers park, add seating capasity, restorants, arcads, food stands, ect. You get an inbox and other feachers like hiters eye the ball flashes colors for difforent pitches
