Weber Grill Rotisserie: Wood Handle

Of course my old Weber Grill Rotisserie did not line up with my new Weber Genesis grill, so I had to buy a whole new one. My old one had a nice large wood handle. The new one has an oval metal handle that sits at right angle to the rod and it gets as hot as if were inside the grill. You have to use pot holders to remove it when the food is done. Also the handle needs to be in the up position in order to grab hold of it because it sits about a half an inch away from the grill body when it’s facing down so there’s no space to grab it. Because the handle does not extend out, you need two hands on the spit to support the weight of the food. An absolutely horrendous design, perhaps even dangerous. Lastly; why does Weber Grill Rotisserie include cheap metal screws, nuts and washers for mounting the motor bracket when everything else is stainless steel? They corrode in no time with the heat and grease. I replaced mine with stainless. Aside from the poor handle design, for cooking the set-up works great. We use ours all the time; roasts, pork tenderloin, chicken, turkey.

Cordless Grass Shear: Grass Cutting

The American Gardener 3.6-volt cordless grass shear with 3-inch clean-cut stainless steel blades makes trimming fast easy and is especially ideal for the grass around flower beds and light shrubbery touch ups. Using a comfortable safety thumb switch, the safety lockout feature prohibits accidental blade operation. The cordless grass shear stainless steel blades are designed to retain their sharpness and resist corrosion, while the 3.6-volt high capacity NiCad power system provides 30 minutes of continuous cutting per charge. Nice sharp blades and smooth action. Much better than my old one to operate. Easier safety switch to hold when operating. Battery time was over 30 minutes. Works great.

Baby Building Blocks: Early Skills

Ten bright blocks are ready for baby to drop into the open bucket or through the shape-sorting lid. Baby will love filling the bucket these baby building blocks, dumping them out, then starting over again. Great for eye-hand coordination and other early skills. Then baby can move on to sorting and stacking and learning about identifying and matching shapes. Includes plastic shape-sorting box with take-anywhere handle and ten colorful blocks. My son loves to mouth and whack these blocks together. They make a great sound when thwacked together. I was worried about the plastic california thing til I realized that practically everything is known to the state of california to cause cancer. They are plastic after all, as are most of his toys. These were cheap and have great sound. The baby building blocks box is nice because it makes a lot of racket when he plays with the blocks against it. The lid does not stay on. I am not sure my son will ever use it as intended, but I guess I do not care. Maybe when he gets much older, but as it is, he loves to mouth the lid too. It is very interesting to him to hold and manipulate. And it has an embossed side that the block sound good rubbed against.

Little Tikes Car: Push Pedals

This classic kid powered Little Tikes Car has a whole new look. New features include removable floor and handle on back for parent controlled push rides. Designed with a high seat back and storage in the rear. Includes special features like an "ignition switch" and an open-and-close gas cap. Rolls on rugged, durable tires and front wheels spin 360 degrees. My son was transfixed watching this get put together. I purchased this instead of a " little" big wheel as he is only 18 mos. and this fits him so much better. I did not find this hard to put together although you need to put some elbow grease into it for few of the parts so it will stay together properly. Good directions that were easy to follow. Everything was in the box except the Little tikes front logo plate. Doesn’t effect the fun or function so no big deal. Most importantly he loves to push the car around and get in and pretend to drive. He really enjoys getting pushed around in Little Tikes Car too. Hasn’t tried moving it himself yet. That may take a while since he will have to push it flintstone style with his feet through the floor. Over all it’s a great toy that will last.

Titanium Flat Iron: Heats Up Quick

Nano Titanium Flat Iron is an exception conductor of heat.  It maintains stability in ultra-high temperatures and emits negative ions in their most beneficial form for faster straightening, locking in the hairs own natural moisture.  The BaByliss PRO Nano Titanium Straightener yields maximum far-infrared heat, penetrating the hair from within for gentle straightening without damaging your hair.  A special Ryton housing resists high heat. Bonus free heat resistant pouch/mat included. I bought the Titanium Flat Iron Babyliss about 3 months ago for my daughter. She is biracial and has very curly and wavy hair. This straightener is the best! It leaves her hair glossy, straight and just plain beautiful! And yes, there is no tugging at the hair either. My suggestion for people who claim that Babyliss has damaged their hair is that they are not taking the time to see which temperature works best for their hair type. TAKE YOUR TIME! You MUST start with the lowest setting and make your way up.
