Update** My son is now 15 months and actually plays with it.Product is great! It has great sounds, music, and lights. It says colors, numbers, and shapes. The L & R bumpers are like switches and wheel things that click. There is sound adjustment so you can turn up the volume or keep it lower. I think this toy is awesome. And it looks just like an Xbox controller. The only thing is… my son doesnt care for it haha. He still prefers to fight is to play with our controllers. The reason why we got this controller is so he can play games with us but he wants the one were playing with. Go figure haha. However, this toy is cute and great, and my son is just too clever lol. My 14 month old usually screams/fusses for any car ride- we purchased this knowing how much he likes to press buttons and how often he wants to play with daddys video game controllers. I didnt expect for him to like it quite as much as he did, but husband just told me that once he bucked LO into the car he heard our kiddo playing with it for the ENTIRE 20 minute car ride (usually he throws his toys out of his car seat) and even whined when hubby had to take it away when they got to daycare.10/10 would purchase for any new parent or for a kids first birthday! Very cute toy for our little one! Teaches numbers, colors, letters, etc. and has real game sounds (or so my husband says!) Using real gaming cheat codes, you can unlock different sounds. My husband and I googled this and it took about 20 minutes to figure out the trick to getting the secret code to work: you have to hit each button slowly (letting the sound effect completely finish before hitting the next button)! Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A. This is by far the cutest toy Ive bought for my son so far. Hes currently 5 months old and he really enjoys the sounds and music that this plays. Its pretty much the size of an actual game controller. This is a gamer parent must-have for your baby! This little game controller toy is shaped just like big brothers game controller. Little one likes to hold it and play alongside of big bro. The joystick, buttons, and D-pad all make sounds. When the shapes and letters buttons are pressed, little ones hear and learn the letters and names of the shapes. When the thumbstick is pressed, fun songs and tunes are played, including one that makes the controller light up in the color that the song is about. When you press the number buttons, you hear and learn each of the numbers. These buttons also produce sound effects and video game phrases. The orange part at the top is the spinner. It doesnt produce any sound, but it is fun for little ones to spin. The purple part at the top is a toggle button. It also doesnt produce any sound effects, other than the clicking sounds it makes when being pressed down in either direction. These two were the favorite parts of this toy, for my little one. It encourages fine motor development and was more interesting and engaging than the other features on this toy. It was also less noisy than the other features on this. This is going to make a great Easter basket item :) This is a perfect toy! I was happy to find a toy controller because my 1 year old has been obsessed with our game controllers (and buttons) and can be pretty rough on them, now that she has her own she is fascinated with how it lights and all the sounds when she presses the buttons and moves the toggle, she doesnt think ours are as exciting anymore! Definitely would recommend! Its about the same size as my husbands XBOX Controller. My son is nine months and loooooves it! It fits perfectly in his hands. My youngest daughter was trying to steal her fathers remote constantly. So I came on amazon and found this one, for the amazing low price.My daughter has played with this controller daily!Theres a volume control, two options. The quiet option can not be heard through walls and the loud option can.Theres two sound options to choose as well, music and learning. The music one plays all sorts of sounds that sound vaguely familiar, sounds one ma have heard in a retro video game.The learning option runs through a selection of not creepy voiced descriptions of the button pushed. Orange, D, Star, etc.Theres a joystick that sets off longer music, and a music note that you can push like a button that sets off a serious of mini songs.The r1, l1, buttons are just clickers, teeter one to make a click spin the other to make a click.My daughter has thrown this toy across the room and not damaged it. She has chewed on this toy and druled on this toy and it still operates the same as the day it arrived.We love this toy. Worth the buy!


LEGO City Advent Calendar 60235 Building Kit, New 2019 (234 Pieces)

See Price


Description

Give your child a fun way to get into the holiday spirit with the LEGO City 60235 Advent Calendar playset. It has 24 different buildable presents, one for each day of the season, including a snowmobile, snow fort, curling set, fireplace, rocking chair, telescope and much more. This childrens Advent Calendar includes 7 minifigures and a husky dog figure.

Notes from the Community

This is a very fun and interactive Advent calendar set. Like most such Advent sets, it is boxed with 24 compartments, one to be opened each day starting December 1st up to Christmas Eve. Each compartment features a build-able object with an average of about 10 Lego pieces per object. There is a good variety of building projects, including people (and Santa of course!), vehicles, furnishings, food, etc. My favorites include the fireplace with cool glowing embers and the wacky curling athlete with curling stones and broom. The box is designed with a clever fold-down flap that serves as a base for displaying the objects. Weve traditionally used Advent calendars with chocolates and this one is so much more fun and creative (and low-calorie). The only thing missing (at least for our Christian family) is any religious element pointing to the birth of Jesus. Ive already decided to enhance our experience by having my kids build a few Nativity elements to add to the display using other Lego pieces we have. In any case, we cant wait to enjoy this Lego Advent calendar this Christmas! This has been a tradition in our family for 5 years now. We buy a new one every year. My 8 year old son loves doing this and so does my 17 year old son, even though he wont admit it. It is one of our favorite Christmas traditions now and we look forward to September when the new advent calendar becomes available. As advertized. Will give to Grandson in December Really cute. My grandsons will love this. We purchase this every year as a Christmas family gift. The kids love it and I love that you can play with the pieces all year long. My son loves this set. My son cant wait until Christmas! He keeps staring at the box! So much more fun than candy!


Jenga Classic Game

See Price


Description

Size:Classic Product Description Its the classic block stacking, stack crashing game of Jenga. How will you stack up against the law of gravity? Stack the wooden blocks in a sturdy tower, then take turns pulling out blocks one by one until the whole stack crashes down. Is your hand steady enough to pull out the last block before the tower collapses?. Brand Story By See all Product description

Notes from the Community

Our family grew up together in some sort of Jenga haze where at every get together this was dragged out and we played for hours.Fast forward 15 years and I got this for my 3 year old (yeah, yeah, he doesnt have the manual dexterity or patience…Stop interrupting me) to pass that haze onto the next generation.Guess what, he loves Jenga!! Just not in the ultra competitive, beer fueled way. He views them as blocks, so we spend an hour or so each episode building stuff and knocking it down.Eventually we will start actually playing Jenga, but for now, his journey towards the haze of my youth is wonderful.Peace, No BS Guy If somebody doesnt know what Jenga is about: it is a game where you build a tower out of wooden blocks (3 pieces per floor), and players are taking turns to remove blocks out of the tower. If the tower falls apart on your turn, you will lose the game. It is very simple and fun game.If youre looking for a game as described above, then you cant go wrong with this product. Amazon delivered it in timely fashion as usual, and the product is exactly what you would expecta bunch of wooden blocks that you can use to build a tower. Also, this comes with game instructions and some kind of stacking aid made out of carton. I tossed the stacking aid to trash, since I find it to be much faster to build the tower by hand without the aid.In my opinion, the game is at its best when played with two people, but theres no limit of how many people can participate in the game. I would recommend using a stable table to play the game on, but a dangling Ikea table (or equivalent) surely adds some challenge.In a good company this game is much more fun than any video game on the market, making it a bargain at less than $10. This game will also work anywhere with decent gravityas long as you are able to find a stable surface. In conclusion, I would recommend Jenga to anyone living on a planet that has a sufficient gravitational force to hold the tower together on the surface, which includes all the areas to which Amazon.com delivers. The classic Jenga set brings back great memories growing up and playing with it as a youngster. But I also remember back in the day of a sturdy clear plastic stacking sleeve. Just hope the current sleeve, which obviously didnt meet my expectations, will last…the reason for mid 3-star rating. I bought the classic to pair it with my recent purchase of the colored wooden blocks of animal cartoons by Sun Top (Top Bright?) since the childrens set didnt come with a stacking sleeve. Nevertheless, Im truly having fun with my grandkids and they love it as well and now I have a game to introduce to my senior friends. Why not offer a sturdier plastic stacking sleeve as an upgrade/accessory item? This is a really good game. It actually improves the focus of kids, because if you will lose the focus you may lose the game. The best part about it is, you can plaiit alone or with more players so you are not bound by number of players. I buyed it for my 8 years old son because he liked it so much. We have to actually remove each block at a time on your turn and make sure the tower should not loose the balance. Overall I like this game because you can spend hours playing this without getting bored as well you can finish it early if you have limited time. Overall worth its price and good game. Purchased this directly from Amazon, and it came new and wrapped in clear plastic. The inside block stack was also wrapped in plastic, which preserves the blocks until opening. The blocks are not painted, which allows them to stay together and the game to proceed normally without being shortened by premature slippage. The cardboard box is rectangular, and might serve as a storage mechanism for the blocks for awhile, but I suspect it will not last for that purpose. Id prefer a storage bag, like several of the knock-offs that are marketed here have, but a bag might be found elsewhere. For the cost of this game, for under 15 dollars, you really cant beat the amount of fun and suspense that it delivers. My fiancé and all of my friends love this game very much; as well as my parents which tells you that all generations love this game. This is probably one of the best board games there are around; if you have little kids this would definitely teach hand eye coordination. Definitely durable given the amount of times the tiles have came crashing down going every which way. This game has suspense with no real danger, appeals to all ages, is simple to play, and lasts forever. You can still play it on a coffee table or dining room table, you dont need to clear a place on the floor. One thing I would suggest is changing the box size, you would think that the box would be the exact shape of the game so the pieces arent rattling around in the box. All in all; its a great game for a great price that you cant beat. Definitely a must buy to keep in your home for a rainy day or for a family game night. Happy to see the wood pieces are still made of wood. Thats about the only thing familiar youll see from the last time you bought a Jenga game.The box is rectangle. The Jenga tower is square. The box contains cardboard padding that clearly is intended to be discarded. So now what? Put the bricks in the box and watch them shift around. Its like a bag of chips puffed up to look fuller. But why?And wheres the plastic half cube that used to come with the set so you can easily straighten the tower? Not included, apparently. I bought these for an adult drinking game using google suggestions for each block, worked out well!

Sound quality is the best Ive heard on a speaker of this size!!! Definitely worth paying a little extra for this one over the 2nd generation model. Im not going to discuss the functionality as theres tons of info already out there. One important note: If you set up the Alexa app on your phone, IT WILL IMPORT ALL OF YOUR PHONE CONTACTS. I didnt think I gave it permission to do so but Alexa did indeed import my contacts! You may have read stories how, WITHOUT YOUR KNOWLEDGE, Alexa can record whats being said in your home and then send it to ANY or ALL of those contacts! Yikes! And, I wont want any of my kids to accidentally send messages to or call people on my contact list. So, if you want to keep your contacts from Alexa and prevent that from happening heres how I did it:Before installiing the Alexa app on your phone, export your contacts to a file and save it for later. Then, go back to the phone and delete those contacts (dont worry, youll import them back in later). Now, install the Alexa app on your phone and go through the set up process. At some point, youll have the option to allow Alexa to automatically import any additions to your contacts. Please disable that option. After youre done with the installation, youll notice there are no contacts in your Alexa app! Now, you can import your contacts back into your phonebook using the file that you initially created and youre good to go!If you already installed the app but want to delete your contacts from Alexa, its not too late. Simply export your phone contacts to a file and save for later. Then, delete the contacts from your phone. Now, open the Alexa app and click Contacts. On the Contacts page, click on Import Contacts and enable it by moving the button to the right side. This will cause Alexa to replace your existing contacts with the now empty phonebook. After a few minutes, your Alexa contacts will be gone. Go back and disable Import Contacts to prevent Alexa from importing them in the future. You can now import the contact file that you created back into your phone.Of course there may be some contacts you do want to use with Alexa. I simply added them manually by clicking Add Contact.I hope this info is helpful as I wasnt able to find an easy way to manage Alexa contacts. Ive been a happy owner of a 2nd generation Echo and three 2nd generation Echo Dots for a year now, and I was glad to add this to the arsenal. After using it for a few days I am generally pleased with it, but it does have limitations, especially when it comes to sound quality (no surprise there!). I will start by summarizing whats new about the 3rd Generation Dot, then Ill describe the device in more detail, and finally Ill add some thoughts about how to choose which Echo device may be best for you.The most obvious update to the Dot is the new look: its as if someone took a 2nd generation Dot, inflated it with an air pump, and wrapped the edge in fabric. And its not bad!Whats different/updated in the 3rd Generation Dot:1) It is slightly larger than the 2nd generation device, measuring 3.9 wide x 1.7 tall (2nd gen was 3.3 wide x 1.3 tall), and the top and bottom edges are more rounded. It is also substantially heavier at nearly twice the weight of the 2nd generation model.2) The 2nd generation Dot came in two color options (black and white), each of which had a shiny plastic exterior that I personally thought looked a little cheap. The 3rd generation Dot has a fabric exterior which gives it a classier appearance, and its available in three colors: heather grey, sandstone, and charcoal. The fabric and rounded edges give the 3rd generation Dot a much softer look than its predecessor.4) The 3rd generation Dot has a larger speaker (1.6, versus 1.1 on the 2nd gen), which is paired with a larger driver as well. Ill talk below about the effect this has on audio quality.5) The placement of the microphones is slightly different: while the 2nd generation had seven small far-field microphones on its top surface; the 3rd generation has four microphones.---------------------------Overall appearance---------------------------I purchased the sandstone version. The cloth is a polyester woven fabric made up of lighter and darker shades which gives it more visual interest than if it were just a solid, uniform gray. The neutral color blends in with nearly any decor, and the cloth gives the unit a softer look which is great for areas of your house where you dont want something that screams Im a device!Aside from its larger size and slight convex bulge, the top of the device is nearly identical to that of the 2nd generation Dot: it has four buttons (volume up, volume down, microphone off, and an action button) and a multi-colored light ring around the top edge that tells you about the Echos status. The side of the device has an input for the power cable and a 3.5-mm output jack.One notable improvement is the shape of the power cable, which sits flatter against the wall than the 2nd generation Dots cable (see my photo to see them side by side). This may sound like an insignificant change, but it makes a huge difference if you want to plug the cable into an outlet that is behind a piece of furniture.-------------Setup-------------Setting up the Dot couldnt be easier. You simply plug in the power cable, then use the Alexa app on your phone to connect the Dot to your WiFi network. The app leads you through everything, and the whole process takes less than a minute. Boom.----------------Audio----------------I did a side-by-side audio comparison of the 2nd and 3rd Generation Echo Dots, first with music (orchestral, a jazz combo, and some AC/DC) and then with a few newscasts. Everything does sound better on the 3rd generation Dot, but to be honest, the sound is still pretty anemic. Compared with the 2nd generation Dot, the sound is slightly fuller, not as annoyingly tinny, and has a small amount of bass presence (not much, but the 2nd generation had none). Newscasts and other spoken texts benefit from the fuller sound as well, but the difference is more pronounced with music. Just for fun, I also compared the 3rd generation Dot with my 2nd generation Echo, and THATS where I noticed a big difference. Yes, the new Dot sounds a bit better than its predecessor, but they both sound weak compared to the full-sized Echo. (To its credit, Amazon doesnt claim that the Dot has room-filling sound.)Ill be blunt: I really like the Dot, but I dont use it to listen to music. At all. With so many other speaker options out there, theres just no reason to use this as your primary music device.-------------------------Voice recognition-------------------------As I mentioned above, the number of microphones on the top surface has dropped from seven to four. Im not sure what the rationale for this was, but after testing the Dots ability to pick up my voice from different distances and angles, I didnt notice a substantial difference in the overall microphone sensitivity compared to the 2nd generation Dot. Like the other Echo devices, though, it seems to have more difficulty detecting voices that come from below it (which happens if I talk to it while Im on the floor playing with my daughter).-------------------Functionality-------------------The bottom line is that the overall functionality — what the 3rd generation Dot does — is nearly identical to that of the previous generations (and of other Echo devices, or at least the ones without screens). This is largely because the Alexa assistant software on which all Echos operate is run on Amazons cloud, not your individual device. This means that as Amazon adds new features and updates to Alexa they automatically become available on all Echo devices. So, you can use any of them to:- Stream music via WiFi from multiple sources- Control smart home devices with your voice- Make hands-free calls to other Echo devices or phone numbers in North America- Make purchases from your Amazon Prime account- Listen to news feeds, podcasts, etc.- Do anything else in Alexas ever-growing skill set, such as make shopping lists, set timers/alarms/reminders, play games, tell you your daily schedule, and any other skills Amazon dreams up for Alexa in the future.If you dont want to use the Dots built-in speaker, you can connect it to your own speakers via Bluetooth or by using the 3.5-mm output jack.One new feature for the 3rd generation Dot is a little puzzling to me: You can pair two Echo Dots in a stereo mode, giving you essentially left and right speakers. I tried this briefly and the results were pretty much what I expected: yes, its stereo, but its still weak sound! You can also pair an Echo Sub with the Dots, creating a little 2.1 sound system. Frankly, Im not sure why you would do this; if I were setting up for stereo sound, I would want speakers that are designed for decent audio performance, not two Echo Dots.Alexas skill set is enormous and always growing. In fact, part of the fun of owning an Echo device is seeing what new skills Amazon comes up with (even if many new skills are just silly or entertaining). Ill mention two of my favorite skills here: the Flash Briefing and the drop-in feature. The flash briefing is fully customizable daily digest of news and other information which you can hear any time by asking Whats my flash briefing? There is a huge list of content you can add to your briefing including news updates, weather forecasts, sports and traffic updates, and educational snippets along with many that are just humorous or entertaining. Using the Alexa phone app or your Echo account page you can select exactly what content you want in your briefing and in what order you want to hear it. For example, I configured mine with news feeds from NPR, BBC, and Reuters. I love having an on-demand synopsis of the latest news from my favorite sources.My other favorite feature, drop in, essentially opens a two-way communication channel between any two Echo devices, sort of like an intercom. Simply ask Alexa to drop in on [the living room, the kitchen…] and you are instantly connected. My wife and I use this feature to communicate from opposite ends of the house. You can turn drop-in capability on or off for each of your Echo devices individually, and you can also choose whether each device can drop in with ANY Echo device or only those in your own home.[Note that the drop-in feature is NOT the same thing as Alexas hands-free calling feature. Hands-free calling allows you to call most phone numbers and Echo devices in the U.S., Mexico, and Canada from your Echo by saying your contacts name or number. Just like with a phone call, the other person must choose to answer your call before you can communicate. By contrast, with the drop-in feature communication is instantly established. For this reason you will probably want to use drop-in only with your closest family and friends, and probably only for certain rooms in your home!]-----------------------------------A few (minor) complaints-----------------------------------Unfortunately this 3rd Generation Dot shares an annoying trait of its predecessors: widely varying volume levels within the daily Flash Briefing. As you listen to the briefing, some components (such as BBC News) come through quietly while others (like Reuters) are much louder. Not a deal-breaker, but slightly annoying.Also, occasionally when Alexa misunderstands a command, you have to start over, which can be really irritating. For example, if Alexa thinks you asked to turn on a light but you really asked something else, she will repeatedly say In which room? until you say Alexa, stop and then start over. Im guessing this type of thing will improve over time as voice recognition software becomes more advanced. This is really more of an Alexa issue than a Dot issue, but it drives me nuts at times.Finally, I wish the Alexa phone app was easier to use. It works, but its organization is not intuitive and it feels rather clunky to navigate. Again, this is more of an Alexa issue than a Dot issue, but still… Hopefully Amazon will continue to make improvements to it!--------------A few tips--------------1) The Dot seems to pick up voices best when placed at or below eye level (i.e., roughly the level from which your voice emits). Mine has trouble detecting voices coming from below it, so I dont recommend placing this on a high shelf.2) When you select news feeds for your Flash briefing I recommend picking one U.S. source and one international source (I use NPR and BBC - both are excellent). If you add too many feeds youll get a lot of overlap and hear the same story several times.3) If you have multiple Echo devices in your home, sometimes speaking to one will cause others to respond as well, especially if they are in close proximity (like in adjacent rooms). One way to prevent this is to change the wake word of one of the devices to Echo or Amazon. The only downside is that you then have to remember which wake word you assigned to each device!------------------------------------------------------------------------Echo Dot vs. Echo vs. Echo Plus: Which one to buy?------------------------------------------------------------------------(Please note that I am only comparing Echo devices that do NOT have screens.)When choosing between the Echo Dot and one of the larger Echo devices, perhaps the most important question to ask is How much do you plan to LISTEN to the device? This question is important because one of the biggest differences between the Echo Dot and the larger Echo devices is sound quality: the 1.6 speaker of the Dot simply cannot match the fullness and heft of the Echo or Echo Plus. (Remember, they all run on the same Alexa software, which means they all have nearly identical skill sets!)So, if you dont currently own an Echo device, start by thinking carefully about how you plan to use it. Many Alexa skills fall into one of two broad categories: those that rely heavily on the speaker and those that dont. For example, features that benefit from good sound quality include playing music/newscasts/podcasts, the drop-in feature, and hands-free calling. (This is why I chose an Echo Plus for my kitchen - I use it every morning to listen to the news.) If you plan to use your device largely for these type of features, you would probably appreciate the better sound of the Echo or Echo Plus.On the other hand, if plan to use the Echo mainly for non-listening purposes such as voice-controlling your smart home devices, then the sound quality isnt as important and a Dot is probably all you need. In fact, you could even save some money by purchasing a 2nd generation Dot instead — especially if its not going to be in a highly visible location or you dont mind its shiny plastic look. I have several single-purpose Dots in my house in rooms where I want to voice-control one thing, such as a lamp in the room, and 2nd generations Dots are just fine for this — and now that their price has gone down they are a great value!==========Bottom line==========The Echo Dot is an extraordinarily useful and versatile device — one that becomes more useful all the time as Alexas skill set expands. The 3rd Generation model has a great new look, but despite marginal improvements in the speaker, its still pretty unsatisfying as a playback device for music or newscasts. As long as you are willing to accept its acoustic limitations, the Dot can be a wonderful device to have in your home. And if you DO want better sound quality for the features you use most often, you can always connect the Dot to your own sound system via Bluetooth or the 3.5-mm audio jack. Hope this was helpful! I had no idea Id love Alexa so much - I wake up in the morning and she does the routine Ive set up, and shes so comforting and useful and fun overall. My husband and I played Skills trivia games for hours last night. If we had kids it would be even more super useful (kids workouts, stories, games) - we even had a goodnight story read to us by Alexa and it was awesome. Im really loving it. The Echo Dot itself is pretty great - the sound quality is pretty good, the bass when turned up is not that great, but if you really want to rock out you can connect it to other speakers or just use something else instead. Im really surprised by how much I like the Alexa app (and the Echo Dot), because Im a little resistant to technology, but its pretty easy to figure out and feels like a new little buddy in the home. Im excited to get some SmartHome stuff now so I can turn on/off lights, heat, etc. The only tiny issue I have is that for some reason Alexa doesnt pick up my husbands voice as much as it does mine - maybe because Ive used it more? Really cool, though, overall - I feel like Judy Jetson!

Notes from the Community

I received the Fire TV Stick 4K on launch day. I own the previous model and this is a much better experience. First off the remote is a huge improvement. The power button on the remote can turn on my tv, my receiver, fire stick, and switch the inputs automatically so the fire stick is on screen and ready to go with just one click of the power button. Its really nice. This is how it should have been all along. It gets even better though… lets say my TV is already on, and my receiver is set to a different input such as my FIOS tv box? All you do is click the home button on the remote and the remote switches the receiver to the correct hdmi input on the receiver for the fire stick! One remote to rule them all, and yes it controls volume on the receiver too! This is excellent. Its highly configurable. The setup is quite nice. You can define which inputs get picked when hitting the power and home button. You can define which device the volume buttons control. Amazon has done a great job with the Fire Stick 4K.Its faster than previous fire sticks. No more menu lag. Things are smoother and faster overall. Ive used Roku, Chromecast Ultra and Fire Stick… I like them all for different reasons. I also dislike chromecast because 5.1 audio will not work on my receiver because chromecast refuses to support Dolby Digital or DTS 5.1. Fire stick has no problem handling DD5.1. This makes my plex and netflix experience much more enjoyable. The remote is better than not having a remote (chromecast). Rokus are very nice as well. All 3 of these options are great in their own way and frankly I had thought fire stick was the least desirable but recently Ive come to realize I prefer Fire stick so I pre-ordered the 4K fire stick and I could not be happier with it. Amazon needs to keep up the good work. The 4K stick is a solid product and an excellent upgrade from the previous model Let me tell you, I was super excited for the launch of the new FireTV Stick with its leading edge technology and processing power. Well, its got that but theres a couple bug, game breaking problems I have with this thing.1) The Amazon platform is basically retooled Android, which is a crap interface. Its cluttered, redundant, and Amazon being Amazon wants you to use all their services over everyone elses so not only does their menu get in the way but the top third of the home screen is promotions for whatever they want to push.2) Also because its Amazon they want you to use THEIR streaming services to rent movies so much so that there is no Vudu or Google Play app available to install. If Prime Video had a decent selection of rentals (it doesnt) or a halfway usable interface (it doesnt) I would have less of a problem.3) Our FireTV Stick has issues with flickering and sound dropout. Tech support immediately supplied a series of less than helpful troubleshooting tips. Did you try a different TV? Did you try a different HDMI port? Despite my Roku working just fine. I elected to return this since I was already fed up with the closed interface and terrible menus.Slightly less of an issue but still annoying is the inability to completely turn off HDR. Its either always on or adaptive meaning the content dictates HDR which is a problem especially with Netflix (which is calibrated too dark on some TVs)For now Im happier with my Roku Stick despite less robust HDR support.Edit: updated my review for the following:- Amazon reached out immediately after my review to get additional feedback and to offer more support. That actually means something these days. Ill continue to monitor for problems- I upgraded to a new TV and this makes the HDR issue better since it actually looks good on this TV. Problem still stands of not being able to disable HDR entirely if needed- The smart controls feature is nice. I can use Alexa to change TV inputs now.- Less flickering on new tv but still have sound dropoutsHowever my issue with not having a way to watch VUDU/UV movies is a huge issue. On top is that, MoviesAnywhere doesnt tell you which movies were transferred over in 4K. So while the titles may sync, in cases of certain films (eg Deadpool 2) you only get the HD version and not the UHD/HDR one you paid for. Until this is fixed Ill leave my review at 3 stars. Our main streaming service is DirecTV Now, and this stick doesnt run it right. The app seems to works and then just freezes. When I go to run a speed test, the connection is super low, and then ramps up over time back up to full speed. Its as though the app crashes the stick. Other things seem to work fine, but not the app we use the most. Will return and continue to use gen 2 and gen 3 devices. Too bad.UPDATE: So, I deleted DirecTV Now and did a fresh install. For the past three days, things actually worked well and considered revising my rating. Then I tried to watch a little Sunday football. CBS froze over and over again and caused the app to continually crash. Thought maybe it was the local CBS stream because other channels worked fine. Then I tried the Roku I have in my kids room, DirecTV Now worked fine. Figured Id give it another go for the second game, same result. Watched Rams/Seahawks in my kids room with no issue on the Roku device. Again, other apps seem to work fine (I think) on Fire, but this stick isnt right just yet. Id wait for problems to work itself out.

Although there are already 9,000 plus reviews and no one will ever read this, I think its worth noting how easy it is to setup the remote to power on not only the television but accessories as well. Remember those code books from days gone by where you had to enter a number of codes to get a remote to work with a receiver, or a sound bar? This thing does the work for you. It EASILY sets up to work both my TV and my SOUND BAR. The fact that my TV is one brand and my sound bar is another is no problem. I love not having to fish for 3 different remote controls whenever I want to watch Amazon Prime or Netflix. WARNING! I didnt realize that when you buy any Amazon device like this one (or a tablet, etc) it comes preloaded with your info. Thats great.But if you gift it to someone else it has all your info, and they can buy & install apps, make in app purchases and so on. You then have to rely on them to figure out how to switch it to their Amazon account…if they even have one.EASY FIX. I guess I just needed to mark the This is a gift or the This order contains a gift box available on the Cart page. High speed internet, wi-fi, etc., did not get to my neck of the woods until very recently so my experience with these devices was limited. The first was chrome cast which was good except I had to bring the laptop into the living room (I dont care to watch on a small screen) to be able to cast to the TV. I know, a not a real big problem, but still awkward. Also, it was a bit tricky for me to set up. I finally took the plunge and purchased the fire stick. I have read some reviews that are quite technical and way above my pay grade. I will keep this simple. The fire stick has been very, very, good for me. Set up was a snap. I dont have a smart TV, just a fairly new, cheap, HD. The picture is great and so is the sound. If there are technical glitches I havent noticed them. I still need practice negotiating the screens, but that will come with time. I am getting used to talking to a machine, but still say please when addressing Alexa. I have already spent a couple of snow days catching up on two seasons of The Blacklist and have almost gotten through Bosch . I still havent had time for the movies. There is so much available it boggles the mind. I guess all of this identifies me as an old person. Well, I certainly am and for me the fire stick is the best thing to come along since the VCR. I would highly recommend it for my fellow oldies who may be a bit leery about trying something out of their comfort zone. This isnt a review, but it is more of a statement… I just got my firestick a week ago and so far I am so unhappy with it. the setup and everything went fine its just that on many of the movies I choose I have audio but no video, another issue is many of the basic channels that I thought were basic like lifetime and CBS and certain other ones I have to pay for to see. I thought they were many more free channels. Another thing, is the buffering. Most everything that I have tried to watch just keeps buffering and I can watch the same movie on my phone or my tablet which is the same Wi-Fi connection that I use for my TV and I can watch the whole movie before I can see anything on my TV. Im about to send this back I dont understand what the big deal is with this item. and I tried to get local channels I can only get one local channel and then I cant even see it live. It just shows me what the latest headlines were on that news show. Please tell me something I dont know or that it will get better somehow. I dislike the fact that I had to pry the remote open with a pair of my scissors. I wish there was a simpler way to open it. Maybe I did not possess the strength to push it open. Also my firestick restarts itself randomly. Support helped me and I thought it fixed it but it did not. Its overheating!! Ive had these issues before but not straight out the box. Really upsetting. We owned the initial firestick and had used it regularly for years. A remote issue forced us to replace the unit, and Im so glad we did! The responsiveness and speed of the new version is amazing! No more lagging or double click. The new remote is also a huge upgrade with the voice control option. Its a must have! This is an upgrade from my original firestick. The installation was so easy, Amazon is really good with their step by step instructions. It works perfectly but the thing I like even more than the voice control is the size of the remote. That original remote was ridiculously small and easy to loose.

Notes from the Community

I never used this product. I unboxed it and then downloaded the app & read the user agreement and absolutely cannot consent to the terms. Please read and understand the clause about subrogation claims BEFORE you use this product. It puts the user at admittedly unlikely, but very real legal and financial jeopardy in the event of the product failing in such a manner that harm is caused- for example the cord catching fire. USER is repsonsible for all legal fees or fines/claims against the product EVEN if the product was at fault! For me, being someone who just lost a home in a fire with a product that is being pursued under subrogation by my insurance company there is NO WAY I would consent to this!! I love this WYZE camera! This is the 6th one I have purchased! For the price, you cant do better. I have this camera mounted outside, I purchased the little house available here on Amazon, and so far so good! I have a great view of my driveway! I already have two other WYZE cameras outside, one protecting my front door and one protecting the back door, and they work great during the day or night. I have had those outside since Frb and they have survived cold, snow, and rain. I dont use the alerts, so I cant comment on them. I record directly to SD cards. The picture is clear and the app is useful. I also have three Amazon Cloud Cameras too, which I also love, however I have to say, these WYZE cameras have more features, recording to an SD card for one, then the Cloud cameras have. Plus these WYZE cameras are a quarter of the price! I have one camera pointing outside through my living room window. I have to turn off the night vision due to reflection, however i get a great view! I wish I could think of more places I need to monitor, I would buy more WYZE cameras! I want to begin by saying that I have been very interested in owning security cameras in my home, but Ive never wanted to spend a bunch of money on it. I heard about this camera through a tech news article and I thought that I would give it a shot. After all, a $30 1080p security camera with some free cloud storage just seemed to good to be true.What I like:Picture quality is very good and setup was easy. Priced very well too!Each camera comes with a metal plate and some sticky tape which allows you to put this on any flat surface. This is nice since the camera has a magnet on the bottom of the stand.Updates come out regularly to fix bugs. Hope that continues for many years to come!The two way audio quality is actually pretty good! Talking to someone is kind of a pain though. Speaking of that…What I dont like:To have your voice protrude through a camera, you have to open the camera on the app and press and hold the mic icon. To hear the other person though, you have to unmute the camera. Seems sensible so far right? Well every time you tap that mic icon, the camera mutes itself again. Kinda pointless to advertise two way audio if the person on the app has to constantly unmute the camera in order to hear the person on the camera trying to talk to them. Not sure why it wont stick to the setting I choose.The recorded alerts are too short. For instance, I have a camera setup in my garage to start recording after it detects sound or motion. Whenever the garage door is opening, I get alerted and the camera starts recording. However, the recording lasts just long enough to see the garage door open and nothing else as recordings are between 9-12 seconds long. There appears to be a cooldown between each alert too. I say this because I dont get another alert in the time it takes me to park the car, close the garage door, get out of the car, and walk across the camera to get into my home. Having a microSD to continuously record everything would circumvent this, but having the ability to have recorded alerts be 30 seconds could avoid this whole issue.You can now setup times as to when the camera will send you alerts, but unfortunately these options are just limited to time of day and do not include day of the week. So if you were hoping to set it up to alert you Monday through Friday between the times of 7am and 4pm, you couldnt. This will always alert you every day of the week between your specified times.This is a small complaint, but the app saves an image of the thumbnail for each camera directly on my phone. Id prefer the thumbnails to stay on the app itself and not saved in its own folder in my pictures. This also goes for my avatar picture on the app.Summary:This is a fantastic security camera for the money. Most of my problems are software related and (hopefully) will be fixed soon. I look forward to updating my review after they get some more options added and address some of the issues that I mentioned above.Update: 1/3/18Both of my cameras frequently disconnect and require power cycles in order to get them to work. They may work for a few hours or a day if I am lucky. Also alarm notifications are not coming up until I open the app making the alerts almost worthless. Ill wait again for an update, but Im kinda losing hope here.Update: 2/20/2018They pushed out an update to help fix the frequent disconnects that I was experiencing, but now only one camera seems to work consistently at a time. (This is in regards to live streaming) What happens is I always seem to have one camera fail at random while the other one continues to work fine. As soon as I power cycle the camera that isnt working, the other one goes down in about a day and I cannot connect to it anymore. If I power cycle that one, then other one goes down. This has been going on since my last update and I now only power cycle them if Wyze pushes out an update as it gets old having to power cycle them every other day. I still get notifications on the one that happens to be down, so its just the live streaming that doesnt work.Speaking of notifications, if you are on an Android device and are not receiving notifications from the app, try disabling any battery optimization settings (i.e. Doze) that are interacting with the app. Disabling that should make the notifications come up again. My phone recently updated to have the Doze feature in Android 8.0 and disabling those settings seems to have made those work again. The camera video quality is definitely good, but there is no privacy… Since there is no way to use the camera locally without their app and just using a regular app like ip cam viewer that simply uses RTSP, I ended up putting an SD card on it and disabling its internet access by assigning an IP that is restricted by my router…Well, to my surprise, the camera is CHINESE intelligent and decided to change its macaddress to a new one (completely different from the one in the back label) in order to gain a new IP from my router and regain internet access.Definitely not a safe cam for indoors…(I should appear as a verified purchase… Although I bought the item directly from wyze I used amazon payments to pay for it). Not sure about how secure it is. They say they utilize a 3rd party called ThroughTek (offices in china and japan - none in US) to handle the transfer of videos. Wyze Cam claims the content is sent securely to aws. Examining the network traffic from camera shows that content is routed thru many providers including AWS, Linode (US) Vultr/Choopa (europe) and Aliyum/Alibaba (china). They seem to also utilize NTP server in Russia. To get more details.. search on web for WyzeCam sending data to servers other than AWS and you will find a Reddit article. How does Wyze ensure that ThroughTek is not eavesdropping?For me to trust Wyze Cam, I need to have clear control over end to end encryption of my data to ensure no 3rd party has any way of accessing my videos. Why cant the data be sent directly from my cam to AWS (s3 bucket)? Why can I not have access to AWS logs (s3 logs) to review which other IP address has accessed (or attempted to access) my content? Just claiming that this is a secure solution, doesnt work for me.Other than this security concern that I have, the end user experience is great for the camera in other respects. Of course the price is super good.

Notes from the Community

Only good as a toy in close by propertiesIf your internet goes down then back up as it always sometime does in New York City or State the camera will sometimes not reconnect to your WiFi network as it has happened with 3/4 cameras .Since the camera is not responding to either WiFi or LTE your only option is to manually unplug it then plug it in againThis would solve the issue but what happens when you are a 1000 miles away ?Until Wyze ( like Nest does ) codes the software so that the camera reboots itself when attempting to re- connect these cameras are just a gimmick to watch your cat .I am not the only one having same issue as I got numerous emails from forumYou can try to fix by having WiFi AC plugs turning on Pandora off but not reliable This little camera is VERY impressive. I currently own a Nest IQ indoor camera and have owned a couple Foscam indoor cameras in the past. This Wyze camera produces excellent picture quality and has a very easy to use app. The fact that you get 14 days of clips storage for free just blows the Nest cam out of the water.This camera does so much that the 10x more expensive Nest Cam IQ at a fraction of the price.So how does this stack up against the much more expensive Nest Cam IQ indoor camera? You dont get continuous recording stored online, you only get clips stored online. However, you can pop a $10 32GB microSD card into this Wyze camera and get continuous local recording (meaning its being recorded on the card in the device). You can view your recordings in the app. At HD quality, you get a couple days storage on a 32GB card, more if you go SD quality.You dont get the ability to turn the camera on/off based on whether or not you are home. Personally, I really like this feature so it isnt recording us when were home. Just feels weird. Wyze support says they may add this via IFTTT in the future. You can control whether or not motion recording is on when you are home using IFTTT. However, Ive found it a little buggy.You dont get the Nest IQ facial recognition which is very high tech. Im not sure how important this is for an indoor camera. Its amazing for the Nest Hello doorbell.You dont get a monthly fee with the Wyze cam. You pay a fee for the Nest Cam IQ.I cant believe this thing is so cheap and works so well. It has so many features like the big guys. Even the two-way audio is decent. If I had one complaint, its that the motor that rotates the camera is a little loud. Im still giving this 5 stars. I guess its sensitivity to sound is a little high too.It seems like its too good to be true. If you are looking for an indoor security camera, you found it.TIP: I am using this SD card in the camera and its working fine. Inexpensive and does the job if you want local recording - . Silicon Power-32GB High Speed MicroSD Card with Adapter - New EditionNOTE: In the video, I have the camera attached to a mini-tripod. The camera has a standard screw mount for a tripod. You can get a little tripod for around $10. I like it because it raises the camera a bit and provides some extra stability, decreasing the chance it can be knocked over.----- 07/2019 HERE ARE SOME ANSWERS TO COMMENTS PEOPLE HAVE LEFT BELOW ----- Yes, it will continue to do its cloud recording when you have an SD card installed. There is an events tab on the main page of the app for the clips. You can also open a specific camera and tap view playback to see the continuous recording. When viewing on the SD card, there is a delay as it loads up the video. For example, you scroll the time line back 8 hours then there is a 3-4 second delay as it loads the chunk of video around that time. Once it loads, you can move back and forth in it instantly.- I am going to say my 32GB card is getting a little over 3 days recording in a room with only light activity. I cant speak to how that time grows as you increase the size of the card. Im not sure if 64GB would get you 6 days. Seems like it would though.- To the person that thinks the app is useless, Im sorry to hear you are having such troubles. I think the app works well on my Android phone (I dont know about iOS). However, I do believe that those kinds of things can happen. Its not a perfect app and they are adding features which can introduce bugs. Considering the cost of this camera, the app is phenomenal but some people are going to have problems. Hard to predict.- The other app question about it being efficient - yes, it works much better than those other cheap camera app. There is about a 2-3 second delay before it brings up live video. Im not experiencing freezing. However, that is heavily dependent on the network in your home and the network you are using on your phone when you access it (e.g. mobile, slow WiFi, etc.).- Im not sure about the comment about not auto-rebooting when you lose WiFi? Ill say that the cameras survive power failures perfectly. We just had a three hour one last night. Booted right back up. I have reset my network periodically which causes my WiFi to go down for about a minute and the cameras come right back online.Im still using this one and the regular Wyze cam. I still think these are SHOCKINGLY good values. I feel like I wasted so much money on my Nest cam. I should sell it and buy 5-6 Wyze cams. Im a bit of a camera addict. I have hardwired (fixed) cameras that are hooked up to a DVR, and I have 4 Nest cams as well. But we have a lot of pets, and I wanted to have some PTZ cams to be able to look around and check on them when we are away. I heard several tech podcasts (TWiT, Stacey on IoT) ranting and raving over this Wyze cam, so I took the plunge on one. WOW, how amazing to get all this, for $30 (plus shipping)! The image is super-clear, and I LOVE the ability to scan around a room via my phone. I even installed the Wyze app onto my Pixelbook, and when I enlarge the image on my big screen, it looks incredible. I have only had the camera hooked up for a day, and I am still learning the ropes, but I am SO pleased, I am going to order another two, if not three cameras right away!The motion detection feature is pretty slick. I set up the camera in our spare bedroom, where some of our cats hang out, and when Barbie came in, the camera detected her and began following her movements. She was intrigued at the noise (noticeable, but not loud, btw) of the camera whirring, turning. I have attached a screenshot I grabbed via the app, where she is examining the Wyze cam! Highly recommended. I am a fan of wyzecam but this wyzecam Pan is disappointing. Both motion tagging and motion tracking doesnt work even after firmware update. The cam for no reason sometimes just freezes up. I have to power off and on by removing the micro usb cable in order to get it working again. I tried to return it but the return time was over. I am so disappointed and I will never advise others to buy this model base in my experience. How I wish it works as advertised. The bug or whatever it is should be fixed and if it is this unit that is defective I feel I deserve a replacement unit from Wyze. The other units (3) of wyzecam v2 i have is much better in performance. They work great even in my echoshow.UPDATES!Wyze reached out to me and changed the unit. It was on the second attempt that I got a perfectly functioning wyze cam pan.Despite better functionalities than the wyze cam, I feel the wyze cam pan MUST be tested before shipping. To avoid the pains I went through.If you get a fully functional wyze cam pan then you will love it. I have given a 4 star now.

Description

Style:Value Film Pack Share 60 original photos with Fujifilms instax mini film 60 exposure value pack. Fujifilms best mini film value. High-gloss provides top-quality finish

Notes from the Community

Better off buying at Costco or Target. Arrived as three cellophane bound packs of ostensibly Chinese origin (all writing on pack was Chinese and web address on pack was .cn) Fuji 2x10 packs, not the package pictured.First package I tried to use would not eject plastic cover and entire pack of film had to be forcibly removed from camera and thus over exposed remaining film. This wasted $12 worth of film and could have destroyed my camera. Rediculous.This film is sold at local retailers at a cost of about $1 more per unit or, as I now know, at an equivalent price for the product actually pictured at CostCo.Dont waste your money here. Very, very happy with Instax Mini film and the Mini 90 camera. A serious photographer for 25 years, no other genre or format has given me so much pleasure. Results are instant and fun. I love the new polaroid I got for Christmas from my parents! As far as this pack of films goes: The first set of 10 images turned out great, I loved them all. But then the second set of 10 I opened up they all printed completely black, I was seriously disappointed by this. I hope the rest of my prints turn out well.UPDATE:I bought the Fujifilm Mini Film Value Pack with 60 prints from Amazon. So far I have used 5/6 packages included in the box. And so far Ive been very disappointed. 34 of the 50 prints I have tried turned out completely black. Only 16 of my prints have worked so far. After the two that turned out black, I completely read the instructions so I know that I am doing everything right. I dont know if Im taking the pictures wrong but Ive very clearly read the instructions and even went as far as to use a measuring tape to make sure my distance is correct, but Ive taken 12 pictures and theyve all come out black. And in various settings and room temperatures. I had the issue with the first film I bought from walmart, but once I figured out how to take the pictures they worked. Im doing the exact same thing and STILL getting black pictures. I was only trying to shop through Amazon because it was a bit cheaper and this isnt even expired film.Edit: Turns out, after walking around my house about a thousand times I was FINALLY getting pictures, but I wasted many films already. It needs to be RIDICULOUSLY bright in the house for it to not develop black pictures, even though I know I was in stupidly bright rooms. Regardless, its still cheaper than Walmart and Ill get it faster. Ill be buying again. I love these little pictures. All of mine have worked and developed. If anything is wrong with the pictures, as in under/overexposed, its usually my fault because I forget to pick the correct setting! Remember that you cant squeeze the film pack, open the camera when theres a pack of film inside, shake the pictures, or expose them to direct sunlight. If all of that is avoided (and you pick the correct setting) pictures will come out well with a vintage look. Ive bought a couple of these 60ct family boxes and Im never going back. As somebody who kind of consistently uses their instant camera pretty frequently its nice to have multiple packs at home with out having to run to the store every 20 shots. Also if you do the math, this is one of the best deals in instax mini film that you will find around. Now I just have to wait for these to be back in stock to order even more. I liked that it was cheaper to buy 6 packs at $34.However, when I used one of 6 packs, three of 10 films were defective. They came out with black.I hope remaining 5 packs are not defective so I wont be disappointed Sum up of the review_ works great. I would recommend this.Full review- None of them were expired or anything and the picture came out great. This film is probably the cheapest film you can buy for the instax mini. When you input the film box into the camera you have to be sure you do it right or you will mess up your camera. This film came on time and was not tampered with at all. The pictures come out so great. I wouldnt buy any other brand of film if i were you becuase this is manufactured by the same company that the camera are made of. When you put in the film box into the instax mini camera remember to read the instructions before you do so because you ca end up exposing it to sunlight or putting the film box into the instax mini camera wrong causing the camera to mabye get damaged. When you have imputed the film box the first picture take is just a black film box sample thats why when you put in the film box it says s which stands for sample an a soon as you take a picture and get rid of the sample it will say 10 in the little circle which is how many films you have left. When you are imputing the film box be sure not to touch or press to hard again the parts of the film box. I would recommend buying these in bigger packages because you will get more and in the long run you will save more money. […]I f you have any questions feel free to ask!

Notes from the Community

I purchased two of these cards almost exactly 4 months ago, in preparation for some fall releases. Ive bought a lot of digital cash cards for PSN from Amazon, its an easy way to use credit or to tuck something away to save for later, when I KNOW I want a game.I used one code early September and was prepared to use one the day before Red Dead Redemption 2 came out. Unfortunately, it did not deposit the $60 into my account. Instead, I get this error from Sony. The code you entered is inactive. Please check terms and conditions. I try multiple browsers, multiple devices.I contact Amazon and Im told its not their problem, its on Sony. I contact Sony, send them the code itself and the purchase information. 2 days later, I hear back. Its not their problem, its the retailers. I contact Amazon again and get told that I can no longer get a refund, they cant do anything and how would $3 in credit make me feel?Dont buy digital codes from Amazon. I was unaware there was a ticking clock on it, I was given no indication that I would have to use in X amount of time and now Im out $60 and Amazon will do nothing.DONT BUY DIGITAL CODES FROM AMAZON. You never know when they just might not work and youre screwed out of your money. Amazon wants to know what I think about this item, a digital code for $10 of credit on the Playstation Store. Theres almost nothing that I could tell you about this that you dont already know if youre actually looking for Playstation Store credit. You buy this item, and a minute or two later you can find the code in your digital codes section on Amazon along with instructions to redeem it and a link to go right to the redeem page with the code pasted in for you in case youre too impatient to read.The codes have always worked for me and theyve been delivered in seconds, which is more than I can say for Sonys own built-in payment methods which like to lock you out arbitrarily. Well, except when someone steals your account then suddenly Sonys got no problem draining the daily maximum of $150 from your bank account or credit line. Which is why you should get these cards instead of putting in money directly through a payment method on Sonys site, because nobody can steal money if you dont have a method of getting it from you. The best a thief can do if all you have is store credit is use your store credit to buy a small amount and theyll probably just go on because its not even worth the time. Where on the other hand if they get $150 they can buy in game items and trade to another account and sell them for money.Advantages:Codes can be given to someone else as a giftDelivered nearly instantly and easy to log in and apply the codeCredit in your account instead of a payment method means theft is more difficultAll the old codes are in your Amazon account so you can look back on how much money you wasted (wait, maybe thats a disadvantage)When you buy digital, a Gamestop executive weepsDisadvantages:Not a physical card so if you want to make a physical gift out of it, do it yourselfCredit in your account is never the amount you need exactly so theres leftovers you may not use for a whileMost games now charge tax so you wont actually be able to get a $10 game with a $10 card, you need a smidge moreOnce in a while they run out of codes and they take their sweet time getting more in, which stinks if you want a game right nowAmazon will send you emails asking what you think about digital gift cards and suggesting more digital gift cards for your collection, since youre obviously a connoisseur of letters and numbersWhen you buy digital, a Gamestop executive weeps This should be a professional service, if youre out of stock on digital codes, youre required to get them back as soon as possible. Their are way… too many people who depend or could afford a $10 or a $20 Playstation Store Gift Card. Please stop using strategies to force customers to purchase your more expensive cards. Id post an update if i get a reply from the relevant seller. El tiempo de llegada del código es inmediato I usually buy the 10$ code for everything… running out of codes and not stock it back is a great way to show how less they care about the customers who depend on this value codes. Ive been waiting for about a month to buy a code and nothing fast easy poor n broke due to fortnite i cant stop nor get rid of 2 months spent $3,000 on in game skins so on i still have no friends to plat with online ps4 i may sadly cut my loss on wasted cash just blew $125 thus far in a day 11/9/18 for the football complete teams ugh!!! online gaming hate it fortnite is a disease that got me i must sadly stop it buy my normal games leave this to the fortnite pc famous paid!!! gamers for twitch n tournaments SAD i spent/spending so much on the free game but every 24 hours new skins are posted emote dances ugh wish i could figure to sell my fortnite account get some money back it destroyed my life literally 3 friends broke up 1 divorced over the game!!! all my ps cards were are for the game lol then paypal was connected to it on ps4 n i cant buy what i want new games out due to money pit fortnite just cos cool skins to buy! unique ones nov. 13th deep freeze rare skin set comes out now too ugh!!! I cannot believe you dont have any supply. Very disappointed with this policy I had to bougt this because the other amounts werent available. I know is better for your and PlayStation Network benefits. But it is not fair.

Notes from the Community

Tried to buy a digital code because I was being lazy and didnt wanna drive to the store and back for a gift card to add money to my Xbox account. Big mistake. Took longer to verify the purchase than it wouldve to just go buy a card. Then trying to redeem the code it started a whole new set of problems. Following the link to redeem took me to microsoft and update profile pages and adding information (which is already on the account) and now my Xbox account cant add codes from the website or the Xbox. Now I gotta deal with customer service and more annoying crap. Lesson learned. Dont buy digital cards from amazon its a pain in the ass. Just buy the prepaid cards at the store Worked perfectly…Within a few minutes after checkout, I received the code-(which is typically located on the back of the card when purchasing this at the store), added it to my account & it was able to be used right away with no problems. Personally, this saved me a lot of time & hassle as I live in a rural area & purchasing the digital code on Amazon allowed me to skip the drive, wait in line etc. Now that I see how effortless this was compared to buying the card at the store, I intend to purchase the digital codes from now on. Perfect transaction start to finish!! Highly recommend! Happy customer! Bought this as way as a alternative to going to the store.Bought it for my little brother sent him the code, he put it on his account and it showed on there as the picture above then he purchased a 4.99 item off fortnite as it shows also in the first picture. Thinking he had about 10 dollars left he went to buy something else but was found with a balance of 1 dollar and some change. Im not sure if Microsoft didnt allow the full amount into his account or they just charged for something else that he didnt know about. But Im the end this scammed me out of 10 dollars. I bought a card and it worked fine. About 2 weeks later I ordered another but the code didnt work. I talked to Microsoft support a little but quickly realized that the order simply hadnt been processed yet so the new code didnt yet arrive. If your code doesnt work, try waiting a minute then refreshing the page (if youve purchased one before). So much easier than running out for gift card. I dont want my credit card on the live account bc the kids can order whatever they want if I do I love the ease and quickness of purchasing the digital Xbox gift cards instead of having to go to the store and waiting in line to buy a plastic card that does the exact same thing as its digital counterpart. Save yourself some time and gas, just buy your gift cards here on Amazon and get access to the funds instantly. The future is here people, take advantage of it! This worked great.. I had never bought 1 online before and was giving it to someone in another state. GLAD TO SEE THIS IS AN OPTION FOR ME TO SEND THINGS TO THE GRAND CHILDREN THAT THEY WILL LIKE.**I have bought this 3 times in the last week for my grand children, so easy to buy and just send them the code. No waiting for the mailman to bring it**** Awesome!!

Notes from the Community

It is so interesting to read Princes reflections on his life. The family photos are my favorite. So inspiring to look at those pictures knowing that the little boy grew up to become the globally renowned and respected musician that he was. So relatable to read about the love and admiration he had for his parents. Prince Rogers Nelson was one of the most creative musical geniuses. He was known far and wide. I got to know him through his film, Purple Rain, and, then, of course, all of his music. Difficult to find anyone who didnt listen to his music. His death felt unreal, a calamity out of proportion, and then, to know he was addicted to drugs was a cruel blow. Too young, too much for him to do, but thats how it is in our lives, now.This book, started as an autobiography by Prince, he knew what he wanted to say, and let others know. Try to create, he told one person. I want to tell people to create. Just start by creating your day. Then create your life. This book is an attempt to do just that. But, it feels strange, we go from photos of prince to the written word, and then the second half is told through photos of his writings, photos of his life, and photos of everyone in his growing years. I read his book on a kindle, and it was difficult to read the writings on a kindle.In the beginning of the book, we get to meet the author, and an explanation of how writer Dan Piepenbring, was chosen to finish the book on Prince. This is his first published book, and it is well done. How to finish a book that was begun by the genius, Prince. We learn of Princes life growing up and into adulthood, but most of the book is about the music, the writing of his music. And, then, the people Prince met and liked. He had an unusually eclectic group of people who would gather at his Paisley Park. Prince loved music and his music, his fashion, the layers, and his relationships to people. Prince was creative in his life in many ways, and this was one of his greatest achievements.Recommended. prisrob 10-29-19 The book arrived shrink-wrapped in plastic, preserving its gorgeous, high quality, textured cover and thick glossy pages. Its packed with photos including pages of his diary and songs in his own hand.Easy to flip through or read cover-to-cover, its clear that between the frank honesty, humor, and style, Prince seeps through every page. Youre gonna know and love him even more after you pour over this richly annotated, curious exploration of Princes life, thoughts, and images.A unique and very artistic book, as youd expect and hope for, given, you know… Prince. This is a quick read, but you wont quickly forget how it makes you feel. As a fan, it was amazing to see Princes handwritten notes, lyrics, and memories. But, also as a fan, it is painful to imagine how amazing this memoir would have been if he had lived long enough to complete it. The vision he had for everything was on a whole other level than us mere mortals and I wished we had been able to see the finished product. Any lover of music, creativity or Prince will love this book. The handwritten pages make this book a must have. It is also contains quite a few beautiful photos of him and those whom he loved. Quality book stock as well, which I was impressed by. I truly have anticipated this book for months. I ordered it on Monday 10/28. When it came today, I wasnt sure what I would feel. A Heavy book, Quality thick paper, Textured Cover, 282 pages of THE CROWN PRINCE OF PURPLE! Not sure when Ill be ready to actually sit still to read it! (Afraid my emotions may get the best of me…i know they will!) A True Prince fan, will not hesitate to buy this book! The see his own Beautiful Handwriting To see his words, his ideas and thoughts! Ive fallen in love with Prince Rogers Nelson all over again!!!! I was FLOORED by the book, a weird and endlessly interesting pastiche of many different elements, all as creative and unique and dazzling as the person they are about. We have highly engrossing accounts of Prince by friends and associates, handwritten biographic information by the man himself, unseen photos from his life and career, handwritten lyrics of classic songs, even the original story of what became his seminal mid 80s classic movie (and album and single) PURPLE RAIN. Its also a truly haunting piece of work in that as you consume the pages you slowly realize that THERE WILL NEVER BE ANYONE ELSE ON THIS EARTH LIKE PRINCE. A super HIGH FIVE also to the young writer who helped put his book together too - Mr. Dan Piepenbring. Buy this book and learn more about one of the True All Time Greats. The book itself is fascinating- worth every penny- BUT- it comes sealed in shrinkwrap and when opened, the fumes are strong- sortof like formaldehyde. So Ive been reading it at arms length and will probably put it away so it can air out for awhile. Having said that- its full of photos, and very personal to Prince, so the smell is worth it, even to me with asthma. UPDATE: Its actually the shrinkwrap plastic that smells- so some of it sticks to the book, but this morning the book is fine- while my trashcan smells like a chemical factory.

Notes from the Community

I downloaded this book as quick as it was available. Why? Because I felt there was an author who would finally not just repeat what has been already said without providing documented references and I have found it. I was so disgusted and actually scared that our government would work at devious levels to erase a candidate, a President. Its truly a horror story. Will this be viewed in an unbiased fashion, of course not. You can already see immediate comments attempting to erase this author as they have tried to do to President Trump. Will you fall for their lies or will you at least read this book with an open mind. Time will tell. Excellent book - meticulously detailed and documented. The gig is up and the truth is finally coming out. Well written and well documented. Excellent read. This is not fiction. The left should read and understand what they are doing to this country. Not that facts matter anymore.Great read for those all in for truth Lee Smith does a masterful job of uncovering new information and tying together much that was already out there. He does what the failed main stream media could and should have done. There is no real attempt here to acknowledge and refute evidence counter to the writers thesis. Such evidence is a available in spades. The author also never acknowledges weaknesses in his own position. Im open to any conspiracy claims, whether from the right or the left, but this is simply not a real effort to get at the truth. Its not a credible argument; just political hackery. Politics is in a dirty, nasty, unbelievable state!! This is a must-read account of how people in powerful, influential positions tried to take down our current President of the Great United States. How did this happen to our fine nation?!? What will it take for Americans to wake up and demand all involved in this twisted scandal be held accountable?!?!! Horrible, what a scam. Couldnt even get through the sample.

Why fuss with a zipper just pull this medium weight 7.8-O fleece hoodie over your head and get going.

Notes from the Community

I was indecisive on what size to get and I went through all of the questions and reviews to see if anyone who was similar to me provided any helpful info. No one did. So I hope this helps someone. Im a 55 200lb woman, carry my weight in chest and hips. Ordered XXL because I like my hoodies roomy. It was a just a little roomier than I would have liked, but it shrunk a little bit when I laundered it, so now its perfect. The sleeves are a little long, but not cumbersome. The bottom band hugs my hips not too loose, not too tight. Its very soft, lightweight, and warm. I would have given five stars, but I noticed it has a hole in the seam at the cuff and now I have to return it, which is adds a little chore to my to-do list. This sweater is super soft! Wasnt too expensive. Actually fit me. Im 52 and I got the small size and it fit just right. Shipping took a little though, so dont expect to get the item quickly. i got Small, im 52 and weight 105lb, it fits perfect, a little bit snug but thats what i wanted… i think is good for the price .. love it .. Im 510 140lbs and this Medium fits perfectly! Bought this to airsoft in without ruining my more expensive clothes. It was a perfect fit!I very much recommend this hoodie. It is nice and soft,it had a smell at first but it will go away. Im a female ,57 ft,and 127pounds and I got the medium size. Just received the hoodie in the mail. Sleeve length is great, I also love the cuffs on the sleeves, very snug on my wrists which I like. The width of the hoodie in the body is also really nice (large size). What Im not so fond of is the length of the body of the hoodie. Its a little to short, and Im assuming it will shrink up a bit as well, so Im afraid it wont fit very well once I wash it. But as of right now, it does fit pretty well and has good warmth! Used it for an E.T. sort of costume, fits good and quality is OK for the price Im a girl, 5 foot 2 and I weigh 110 pounds. I got a small, its pretty big on me, I feel like it makes my shoulders look big lol because of the way it is but I suppose on a guy the shoulder room would be a plus. Its really comfortable, great soft warm fabric, nice pocket in the middle, pretty bright vivid royal blue, I wear it to work at my warehouse job, its warm, comfy and it holds my cell phone well. I love it! I wont order another one because I was hoping it would be smaller but Im not surprised since this is for men. I like it though. The hood is insanely big but thats not a bad thing. It you got a white hoodie you might look like a clansmen lmfao

Notes from the Community

Oh. My. God. Shut the front door and slap your grandma. Hold on tight because these jeans are gonna get you pregnant. Im too hot, call the police AND the fireman. Songs immortalize fantastic behinds and if youve never felt like the subject of those songs then buy these jeans and buckle up! Youre about to feel like a honkytonk badonkadonk, baby got back, fat bottomed girls, and your anaconda is about to make girls go, oh my gawd, Becky!Now that the funny part of this review is over… shut up and buy these jeans. Buy ten pairs because Lord knows as soon as you find a pair of jeans you like youll never find them again. I am 411 tall, 173 lbs, 45 hips, 33 waist (definitely pear shaped), and I can never - I mean NEVER - find jeans that fit me. These are the right length. They fit my hips. They dont gap at my waist. And this inner tummy slimming panel? Oh sweet baby cheezus YES. I have a two year old, an awesome mom pouch, and a healthy love of bread. These jeans make me look even better than I did before I grew another human being. Literally ditching every other pair of jeans I have and stocking my entire wardrobe with these. These are absolutely amazing!!! The reviews were great, but I was still skeptical because I have a very hard time finding jeans that fit well and are comfortable. These are amazing!!! I carry the majority of my extra weight in my stomach and despise any type of pants that cause muffin top, so I tend to order bigger rather than smaller to avoid that. The result is usually pants that wont stay up and I am constantly pulling them up all day. These are perfect! They are pull on, so no buttons or zippers. And they somehow stay up, yet are not too tight in the waist. No muffin top, and no falling down. The legs are snug but very comfy. And they are flattering. A miracle! I am going back to buy the darker color right now!So now the important part. You came here to see what size would fit you best, so I wont leave you hanging - the most helpful part of a review is the stats. Without them, the review is basically useless. Nothing worse than people who write, these fit great! but then give no stats. So here you go: I am just under 59, about 200 lbs (+/-), and typically wear size 14-16, depending on fit (again, I hate tight waists, so I am probably a 14 but always size up for comfort). I got these in a 16 long, based on reviews, and they are just perfect. Buy these!!! These jeans are so wonderful. I am 35 and a mother. I love my body but most jeans today are not made for moms. Here is what I love1. They stretch but do not become loose after wearing. I do not have to keep pulling these up after I have had them on for awhile. They keep their shape!2. They are stretch material but are also jean. They look like jeans, not stretch material.3. They allow me to move comfortably while knowing my parts are securely covered.4. They come up a little higher but not too high.5. The waist allows for some give so there is no muffin top even if you in fact have a muffin top6. Emotional peace. It is hard to recognize that it is time to start purchasing womens jeans. Womens jeans are often awful. These jeans are made for a womans body but do not look like womens or mom jeans. So I get to feel comfortable while wearing jeans that look youthful!7. MY BUTT LOOK AMAZING!!! I do not get to say that often but holy smokes, its looking nice ladies. I normally wear a 20 but took a 16 in these levis. Love these! Just ordered another pair.Update: after washing and drying I probably should have got a 18. A little snug. Also, Im a pearish 54, 220 shape…the pic are with a 16S. The fit: there is a meshy band (like heavy duty pantyhose) across the belly that completely eradicates my Mommy tummy. I have a little pooch, loose jiggle, and sometimes it buldges if the waist line pinches. The waist band on these secures and FIRMS my entire waist - no jiggles or buldges. Then theres my rear, which isnt so perky anymore. These grab my cheeks and pull them up - my butt isnt flat in these. My inner thighs are smoothed out, and cellulite is hidden everywhere.The fabric: they feel high quality, well made. Soft, but durable like a denim/canvas - and they stretch and give when I bend/move without loosing shape or stretching out of shape when I srand back up. I wore these to 3 childrens birthdays in one day and still felt so confident in them to rock to a friends party that night.Size: I am 511, 160, bought the black long in a size 10 and they fit great. ps - the long still barely hits my ankle bone, but at least thats better than capri length.These pants are magical and I am SSOO bummed the other colors are out of stock. I did order their recommended similar jeans (skinny, signature, totally shaping) but they zip - dont have waist band and dont lift my rear the same. I LOVE these jeans!! They are my favorite go to jeans now!! They look great with boots or flats. I am 53 and weigh about 220 lbs. I ordered the 16 short and they fit perfectly!! I can and do wear them but they are pretty snug. They are more leggings than jeans. They do feel very soft and I would buy them again but in a larger size. I bought them in a 14L. I am 57 and weigh 165. I have other 14s that fit well or even a little loose. After reading some reviews, I decided to order a10 LongAnd Im glad I did! Im 5 feet 4 and the long hits right at my ankles, so the regular 10!woukd have been too short! These jeans make me fell so sexy and comfortable at the same time! Amazing fit👍🏽

Notes from the Community

I normally dont like throwing negativity out there, but I feel like the number of positive reviews and the descriptions really led me astray on this. This isnt a deal where you are getting a high-quality item for a low price. You are getting exactly what you pay for.This is not a heavy item - the fabric is extremely thin. This is not a soft fleece item - the material is very coarse and on the verge of being itchy. I feel like the picture on the product page has a Snapchat filter on it to make it look shiny, smooth, and soft. This material at a glance is more what I would expect from a lightweight horse blanket.I got a Large and the fit was ok, but the sleeves are short. I am 62 and weigh 180. I have a hard time finding long sleeve items where the sleeves are actually long enough. If you are the same, then you wont find it here either. I dont like having to order up sizes and wear something that makes me look like a flying squirrel just to have sleeves long enough.If you are looking for a standard low-quality hoodie then this is fine. But if you are looking for something heavy, high-quality, or soft…then look elsewhere. I took away one star for each of those criteria because they were all false. Okay, listen, Gildan hoodies are ALWAYS a size small, always, or at least damn near always. This is the brand that most colleges use for their hoodies (as I have been to a college soon to be university and three state universities & this is always the brand used, onlyother brand Ive seen is champion and Id still recommend sizing up one in them too), and I have YET to buy one that wasnt a size small… I am a perfect large size and I have to buy these in an XL for the classic hoodie fit. Just so You can gauge my size against yours, I am 61, 185 - 190 lbs, 44-45 inch chest, 18.5 inch shoulder to shoulder span, sitting right around a 34 inch waist (in American sized pants, so actually by the measuring tape probably around a 36 inch waist), and am about an average to athletic build depending on when you catch me lol… Point is I am a perfect large in just about anything I buy and I have always had to size up one size in Gildan hoodies. As far as the weight goes this is a mid to heavyweight hoodie (no premium stretchy BS here), and is pretty much unbeatable for the price. You could possibly layer these with a jacket but itd probably be a little bit of a tight fit… Hope this helped fellas. The medium size fits me well! Im 59 and weigh 152lb..slender. Very happy with purchase. I ordered it 11/16/17, received 11/27/17. So, I like my hoodies fitted on me and I decided to try the small in the black. Im almost 58 and Im about 160pds. I received my hoodie today and let me tell you… Its friggin awesome. The sleeves fit perfectly and are not all shrunkin feeling. It came down low enough to cover my behind and was fitted nicely without suffocating me. Such great quality for a perfect price. I own hoodies that I have paid almost $100 for and this fits feels and overall is better. Im getting 1 in every color and probably will be set for the whole winter! So this hoodie is very nice. Its nice and warm, I love the color (white) and just overall neat. Only thing is that I seem to fit best somewhere in between a small and medium, which doesnt exist. These do shrink. The medium I bought shrunk I believe about 1 and a half inches in the sleeves. So watch out. The medium originally felt too big, now it feels better. Still maybe a bit big for my taste. Thats nothing to do with quality of the hoodie. Just make sure you get your right size. Im roughly 57 and 165 lbs. and generally wear small and medium stuff. As far as the hoodies, medium is good. Small feels on the brink of being too small, and I havent washed that one yet. Im scared to. So yeah. Wonderful hoodies, just make sure you order a good size. It fit as expected, I will be ordering more soon I really like these sweatshirts. If I had my way, Id live in sweatshirts…but Im sure my better half wouldnt agree to that. I normally have boughten brand name sweatshirts, but am growing tired of their ever increasing price. I had low expectations for this sweatshirt due to the price point, but thought it was worth the try. I have definitely been pleasantly surprised by this sweatshirt, enough that I ordered another 4. Okay, they arent heavyweight but not paper thin either. They are well made and very soft and comfortable. I normally wear a large, but decided to order an XL since so many now are getting more tailored for a stylish look and I want comfort. Well, a large would have fit fine, but Im keeping the XL…sweatshirt can never be baggy enough…lol. Its a little thinner than I expected but Im still happy with it. I ordered my normal size ( small womens) and its a bit oversized which I like. Shipping was fast. I ordered it Wednesday and had it Friday! Love this plain grey hoodie will be buying more colors.
