Notes from the Community

Could not believe it when I opened the box. These things are extremely small. Should have read others reviews before purchasing. Not much a kid can do with a container this small but mix it up with the other ones. This is just a marketing ploy by play dough. I can not believe that I wasted my money on this. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS you will regret it. Its play doh. The quality of the product is exactly what you would expect. My issue was with quantity. When I purchase this set I compared it to the 36 count case which Ive ordered previously. At the time, I was only saving a couple cents per container on the larger case from a cost per container standpoint. So I decided to purchase the smaller case to save space.These containers are only 2oz, an ounce smaller than the 3oz containers in 36ct case. So on a cost per ounce, the larger set ends up being the much better value. Its my mistake for not reading the product description details more closely, but it wouldve been nice if this was included in the product description line vs further down in the details.I will be ordering play doh again, but definitely not this set. I cant believe this has so many stars. For real? Terribly small containers. Honestly I dont know if they could get smaller. The size of these containers makes you think theyre samples more than a paid for product. Save your $8 and go to Wal-Mart and get a bigger tub for $.50/each. Better deal and at least you have something the kids can work with. I wish that I would have read the reviews but its play-doh so I didnt think I needed a review. These are party favor sizes. I am a teacher and I bought these for a class center and now I will have to make a second purchase because they are just WAY too tiny. I was tricked into thinking they were bigger because the price was comparable to the bigger size cans. Total ripoff for the size :( I, too, got tricked by my eyes when I ordered this set of Play-Doh. I, too, did not read the 2 ounce cans portion of the description. I just thought it was the regular sized cans of the good stuff I see at Wal-Mart for 88 cents and snatched it up especially since this set is listed as an Amazon best seller. Ill give the product three stars because the Play-Doh arrived nice and fresh and there was nothing wrong with it. So three stars because Its Okay but I will not give this buy four stars because I do NOT like it. Tricksters. I loved it when I was little, (still do!) my son loved it, now its my 3 year old grandsons favorite! The texture, the colors and even the smell brings back great memories.I purchased these specifically because they were the small cans. My grandson never had Play-doh before, I had no clue if he would even like it, so I figured wed start small. (What was I thinking?!) He LOVED it.For a toddler I prefer these smaller 2 oz. cans. Theyre the perfect size for little hands with just the perfect amount of Play-doh. I also like the portability of the smaller cans. I cant imagine handing a toddler 10 full size cans and just letting him have at it, with these you can do exactly that. I just purchased another 10 pk. because were finally running a little low after making dinosaurs and leaving them out to harden and then play with. :)Play-doh should be a part of every kids childhood! The only advantage of these is the quantity of different colors. I was disappointed in the container size. They are very small. I could have gotten full sized containers at Wal-Mart for 50 cents each and it would have been a better value. I might not have gotten 10 different colors, but that would not have mattered so much, as there was at least a good assortment. I didnt realize what a mess play doh was until I had kids of my own! Omg. I clean up hundreds of little beads of play doh for a half hour after every time we get it out and play with it. Some of you are probably saying to yourselves that Im doing it wrong and I would say youre probably right. I screw up more stuff than I get right as a parent and I am probably failing play doh. But the stuff is a ball. It was one of my favorite things to play with as a kid and every time my kids open a fresh can of it the smell brings me right back to my own childhood. And now I also picture my poor mother who l never realized at the time was probably cleaning hundreds of little play doh balls up after I got done with it and ran out to play! Its worth it, thou. Its still around, unchanged, for a reason. Its just good clean (except for the beads) fun!

Notes from the Community

Awesome toys. My kids loved it so much they fought over it the first day. Now they love arguing about other toys while these toys rot under the couch. If I wasnt so fat I would retrieve them. But Ill just buy them something else to fight over. Fun toy to play with. Keep in mind the claws retract so take caution when in use. This was a gift sent to my grandson out of state. He wanted 2 panther claws, and all I know about these, is he loves them. My almost 4 year old absolutely loves black panther so this was a must. Yes, I support my sons obsessions. Haha. Extremely affordable and has yet to break. The plastic is pretty sturdy and the claws come out easily. The band isnt too tight on him and has plenty of room for him to grow and continue using. Looks great…my kids loved it but broke after less than a week of playing with it Basic claw piece. Gets the point across. Just a bit hard for my liking. My son loves it though so its serving the purpose My kid loves it. my kid loved it


Crayola Colored Pencils, 36 Premium Quality, Long-Lasting, Pre-Sharpened Pencils Non-Toxic Colored Pencil Set For Adult Coloring Books or Kids 4 & Up, Great For Shading, Gradation, Line Art & More

Product Description Crayola 36ct Colored Pencils From the Manufacturer Crayola 36ct Colored Pencils. The art material of choice. Perfect for school projects.

Notes from the Community

Crayola products dont need my endorsement. If you are looking to purchase from the same seller I did, the job they do on the wraps is outstanding without leaving anything to chance which is nice because these pencils tend to break from age, shipping and handling and then of course the way they are handled once they arrive. If it helps any I can recommend the Staedler pencil sharpener because a good sharpener is hard to find at a good price and these pencils need sharpening after a few uses. Hope that helps. I dont hate the pencils. But the box was completely ripped open. This was a gift for an angel tree child. Cant gift it ripped open. If you are using these for adult coloring, you likely wont be happy with only these 36 colors. Half of them I wont even use because they are either ugly or look the same as another color in the box. There are too many reds and greens, few yellows, and only one purple! At least give us a lavender or something. For the price, I would buy the 64-pack of short colored pencils. Instead I bought an additional pack of 50 that I saw at a store.I havent compared pencil-to-pencil with my sons 24-pack, but I dont see much difference in terms of having the choices I want to color a picture. Go for more than 36, or maybe a more artistic brand with a more balanced palette of colors. I love to color in my spare time but I dont see the need to spend a small fortune on fancy-schmancy pencils as Im nowhere near a professional artist. I color for fun & have found that Crayola pencils provide a smooth, even, vibrant color for a reasonable price. Most Crayola pencils seem to sharpen well (the wood doesnt splinter or crack unevenly) along with the fact Ive found they has the fewest useless pencils (broken lear or color - not sure whats its called) right out of the box. For a quality hobby pencil with a reasonable pricetag I recommend Crayola! Color on! This is the second box Ive received recently that rattled when I picked it up. Unlike the first box, this one contained a few air thingies for cushioning. Just not enough. Of the six items in the box, one of the two colored pencils boxes was torn open and the pencils scattered. The other colored pencils and the box of crayons were both open, but the contents had not fallen out. The other items were boxed separately or somewhat cushioned and are OK. Colors are fine, and this product served its purpose for a class. However, several of the pencils could not be used as the point continued to break - the lead was broken within the pencil. I never dropped them or anything like that, they were just in a bookbag.Also, cannot complain cause these are so cheap, but the box sucks and the bottom just opens all the time. So far I have used these to color on paper as well as on fabric for a church banner project. unbleached muslin was the backdrop. Even the white showed well on it.The colors are Terrific! Much Variety and Vibrant. Will be ordering more for my class!Crayola does not disappoint. Arrived in perfect condition.Need a bit of pressure to get a strong vibrant color, but I guess that would be great for kids because there is less mess. No excess falling off.Awesome color selection. No need to get any more than this 36 pack for your little ones.

Fire TV Stick 4K with Alexa Voice Remote, streaming media player

Description

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.

Notes from the Community

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!! ip address in CHINA. Being spied on. BEWARE I returned the camera, also read other reviews for the same issue. 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.


Fujifilm Instax Mini Instant Film Value Pack - (60 Total Pictures)(Package may vary)

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

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. 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. 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

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.

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 $20 Playstation Store Gift Card. Please stop using strategies to force customers to purchase your more expensive cards. Id post an update if i get a reply from the relevant seller. I usually buy the 10$ 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 El tiempo de llegada del código es inmediato I cannot believe you dont have any supply. Very disappointed with this policy 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 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). 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**** 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! 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 Bought this for my cousin who lives across the country. Process was very easy, I completed the order on Amazon then less then 2 minutes later I was emailed the gift card code which I just forwarded to my cousins email address. He was able to redeem the code on his Xbox One to buy a new game.

Notes from the Community

everything i read stated the delivery of the code would be instant. that was not the case for my order. it took some digging into a help article but in there i found that in some cases human verification of your order has to take place to assure fraud is not occurring. the process could take 4 hours. my verification only took about 5 mins. but i was pretty confused for those 5 minutes.woulda been nice to know about the verification thing ahead of time.but regardless of that, easy to buy and easy to redeem. i wanted to use my amex which nintendo doesnt accept. thanks for being open, amazon I am a member of a VERY elite and exclusive organization. Yes ladies and gentlemen. I am a Discover Card Member.While visiting the Nintendo Eshop, I decided I wanted to get a new game: Super Mario Odyssey.Clickety, click and off I go to their shopping cart.Suddenly my heart sinks. My pulse rises. I cant believe my eyes. Nintendo does not accept Discover Card!Rather than just closing my browser then and there. Grabbing my Switch and tossing it in the trash. I realized this must be some sort of mistake? Clearly. I felt discriminated against, personally attacked even.Breathe for a moment. Settle down. There must be some way around this. My very first thought was Amazon.Well, a moment later and Im looking at these gift cards. My only worry was how long it would take to receive the codes. How would I receive the codes. Etc.I proceeded. Bought a $50 and a $10 in order to buy the game in question. Went through Amazon checkout with my Discover Card in hand. Within one minute I had everything I needed to place my order with Nintendo. The codes for the eCash were provided instantly and I didnt have to wait at all.Amazon saved the day, and I didnt have to resort to using a different card.Fast transaction, instant codes, happy customer. Easy to use Nintendo e-shop card. Scratch the back reveal the number and redeem on the e-shop. Then spend at your leisure. Easy as that. Received the code immediately, literally two minutes after purchasing I had the 5 dollars redeemed on my 3ds!! I was a little scared after having some difficulties purchasing eshop cards online in the past. (Not from Amazon though, this is the first time Ive found them available and instantly on here). I had 5 dollars on an amazon gift card that I was hoping I could turn into 5 dollars on my 3DS, and it worked! So, if youre scared about ordering, dont be! Oh, and if youre wondering where to find your redemption code, its in your e-mail. And if you dont already know, go to your Eshop application, then go to your menu, go down to Add funds then click on Eshop card then enter your code! I just found out today that the Ultra Pokémon versions had just been released recently and wanted to play it right away without having to order the game and wait for it to arrive at my doorstep. I didnt want to enter all my new credit card info onto the game console so I decided to go the Amazon route. Buying the ecash gift card allowed me to input the code to add funds in the Nintendo eshop so I was able to purchase the game right from the Nintendo 3ds xl and download it right away. I highly recommend this for people who dont want to wait for their Nintendo gift card to arrive in the mail. Its so handy to come here and purchase these for the e-shop. I often use either my amazon gift cards I get here and there to buy 3DS games, or there once was a time when I had an American Express which Nintendo doesnt accept which left me with having to go this route, except at the time It wasnt as easy as it is buying from this Store and I had to wait two days for someone to send me a scanned card that they must have just purchased, scratched off and sent to me once they got my money. But here, I purchase the e-shop card and so far the longest its taken to get my e-shop code is 5 minutes. And now with the Nintendo Switch, heres a great way of getting the e-shop cards if you dont want to put your credit card info onto your Nintendo system. i dont know why theres an option to review a gift card code here, but i guess the keypoints are1. the code worked.2. the code delivered near instantly via amazons digital download stuff, email notified me immediately after purchase that i should redeem it.3. with amazon prime chase card, i save 5% on my eshop purchases if for some reason i missed or there was no discount on a physical copy of a game for prime members. Its awesome to be able to buy Nintendo gift cards directly from amazon without having to go to a store to pick one up for use with the Nintendo e-shop. I like to keep my credit card information limited to as few outlets as possible, and this way I can purchase digital games off the e-shop without putting in my information. The whole process is extremely quick, with only a few seconds from the time I purchased the digital card to the email notification letting me know my claim code was available. After that, its a cinch to purchase games for my Switch either online or from the system itself. This is a great way to go about it if you are concerned about safety!

Notes from the Community

1/2 way through Jim Mattiss book Call Sign Chaos, a thorough treatise on leadership, military history & management. Highly recommend it. Mattis is a man of integrity & character - no doubt about it. His list of what to read is worth the price alone. @bingwest @randomhouse HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER5.0 out of 5 starsLeadership explained in detailSeptember 3, 2019Format: HardcoverI am a USN Chief Petty Officer (Ret) and absolutely loved this book by the General… As explained in the blurb, it is divided into 3 sections..direct leadership, executive leadership and strategic leadership.Reading is an excellent way to broaden my horizons and this book did exactly that for me. The Marines, of course, are famiiar to me but this book gave me further insight into their training. I had no idea, for example, that all are trained as Infantry Officers first. And, when they go up the ladder in the Os that they are given a new book to study for that position.This one will explain leadership techniques to anyone that is interested. One of my favorite parts was that the intent of the leader must be understood. The three Cs …competence, caring and conviction were also mentioned. The caring part is so true when being a leader as those junior troops will not only hear that but feel it…in their hearts.I did have one laugh out loud moment in remembering my days as a USN recruiter. Tough times for both of us, it appears. He, of course, was in charge of the recruiters and I was on the receiving end. The mid 1980s was not a good time for either of us!Just an outstanding book which I enjoyed reading thoroughly. I kept envisioning going into the USMC and advancing up the ladder to eventually become the Secretary of Defense. A plus 40 years of service in the Corps. Wow..just wow… Truly hope you enjoy your well deserved retirement…as we say in the USN. Bravo Zulu, Sir… I salute you.Most highly recommended and for multiple reasons., integrity, honesty, service to country and an outstanding style of leadership…Will contact Amazon about the lack of the Verified Purchase as I did purchase it … Order below. Per Amazons guidance, had to delete original review and resubmit…Thanks for your patience.Order detailsOrdered on July 9, 2019 (1 item)Call Sign Chaos: Learning to LeadMattis, Jim, West, BingSold by: Random House Digital, Inc. Inspiration for me to be a better man and lead by example. Im punishing Mattis giving him 4 stars instead of 5. Although Ive hardly been fair. He is a man of high integrity, intelligence and obviously superb leadership skills. I stopped reading the book bc I just dont care to read about all the tactical maneuvering and war stories that go along with his values. The reality of war remains difficult for me to confront. I was hoping the book was more about his time as Secy of Def rather than his career. The book is well written and I think it will have a broad appeal to anyone who is interested in his career path. How I wish former SoD Mattis would run for President. I bought this book because, in an interview General Mattis said that he did not comment on the actions of a sitting President. This level of personal integrity was enough for me to buy the book. This book details a long, tough and thoughtful career. This book is well worth the read, and the General our thanks. I want a signature from Chaos, himself! I havent read the book yet, but I know its brilliant! Chaos is Brilliant! My husband is a retired SgtMaj in the Marine Corps! He is Brilliant as well! Being a Marine is Brilliant! Nuff said! Fabulous read from Mad Dog, loved the detailed background and inside information about how politicians are bad decisions. I wish he would run for President! It should be a source of pride for all Americans that if we have an empire, it has been an empire of ideas and ideals sufficient to draw many like-minded nations to our side. What a treat to be able to read such wisdom collected through the distinguished military career of General James Mattis!It was enlightening to accompany the General through the jobs to which he was assigned through the years. When he was a Marine recruiter, he didnt just collect warm bodies; he wanted recruits who would make it through Boot Camp. When he was training soldiers for Iraq, he set up a realistic model village to train for house to house combateven with smells. He believed in giving recognition, with praise in public but correction in private.He has a bias toward action. He is slow to go to war, but adamant that forces be well resourced if engaged in war. He argues a fighting force should be well trained, with a clear objective, then allowed to pursue the goal without a delays from specific orders from above. He repeats in the book advice he has given many times such as: First do no harm, or What do I know? Who needs to know? Have I told them?The thing that impressed me most about General Mattis was his listening. He listened to mentors, who taught him and corrected mistakes. He listened to the voices of history, warriors who had fought battles and won peace. He listened to soldiers, stopping by at night to talk with them. He listened regardless of rank, as in the case of a soldier who suggested they wear T-shirts of various colors to keep people of various functions straight when walking through a rehearsal for an invasion. Listening has enabled him to find common ground and build trust.Mattiss choice of quotable quotes alone make this book worth reading. One from Thomas Jefferson in 1807 was: What is good in this case cannot be effected. We have therefore only to find out what will be least bad. This quote is used in reference to the Arab Spring, but it seems appropriate for our need to wind our way through the maze of choices in todays worldstrike back with force and risk war/escalation, or let it pass and encourage our enemies to strike us because of perceived weakness.Above all, Mattis emphasizes the need for allies in our world. He also laments the tribalism that is growing in our nation. He closes the chapters of the book with the quote, E PLURIBUS UNUM.

Oalka Womens Yoga Capris Power Flex Running Pants Workout Leggings

Description

Notes from the Community

I recently returned back to yoga and in doing so realized that I needed to stock up on yoga pants. Initially I purchased a size large to fit my 59 155lbs pear-shaped, long legs (31) frame. I found the large to fit nicely when Im not in need of compression. Additionally, the large tights fall about 5 inches below my knee and during yoga I end up hiking them up a bit to make them more capri length. I recently switched to medium simply because I prefer compression and for less length below my knee (about 3 inches).For the money these capris are spot on. They fit well, wash well (warm wash and hang to dry), and are not see through. I have 3 bully breed dogs with varying lengths of fur - super short to medium length and I have not noticed their fur sticking to my pants. I typically take heated or sculpt classes so I am sweating up a storm. I have yet to notice weird sweat outlines in on my pants so I see this as a huge bonus. I cant speak for how quickly they dry should I leave the studio immediately after practice - for me I think that would take a good hour, but thats simply speculation. I shower at the studio following practice so my sweaty gear heads straight into my gym bag.I own the following colors:Black, Navy Blue, Space Dye Heather Dark Grey (my favorite neutral), Space Dye Camo Magenta (bright without being obnoxious), Space Dye Camo Purple (great dark alternative to traditional black, grey).I also own multiple pairs of the longer version. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01GYLFA4O/ref=s9_acsd_hps_bw_c_x_1_w I find the fit between the capris and the longer version to be identical.I hope to see additional colors introduced to oalkas lineup! I love these. I own 6 pairs! My favorite are the solid colors as they are a nylon and spandex blend- same as my pair of lululemons! Except they are so much cheaper. I bought size XS as I am size 00-1 depending on the pants. These fit perfect ALTHOUGH they are on the long side. Not for shorties like me. I fold them up right above my knee. They dont show away and are not see through . They hold everything in nice and tight. For reference I am 4 11 115 pounds! Get these!! These leggings are great!!!For the price, you wont find anything of comparable quality.The stitching and material are high quality and nothing is uncomfortable or snags. I did a squat test with bright underwear and you could see very faint outlines of the pattern but the material is thick and shouldnt be a problem if your butt is small.The fit is somewhere between 7/8 length and crops on me, long legs at 57. The waistband is thick and comfortable, not too tight or anything. I weigh 130 lbs and hips are about 36 inches and the small fit perfectly. I have purchased Oalka yoga power flex running pants and they are my favorite so I decided to try capris for the summer months. They have the same taller waist band that works for my body type and remain comfortable throughout the day and/or my workouts. I can range from a size 8-12 depending on brand and style of pants, but usually fall in the 10 category. This means Im always stuck figuring out if I should order Medium or Large in clothing. Well, I decided to go with the Large and they fit perfectly. They move with me, and are flexible, but the waist band doesnt cut into me. They also stay in place (no rolling) when doing stretches, planks, etc. Ill be purchasing more in other colors. I also wash on cold and then hang dry, but I do that with all my leggings so I cant comment as to whether they shrink in the dryer, but after many washes they have held strong. Side note: I was not paid for this review, I just genuinely like the brand. I am just getting back to working out after 25 years off, I know, thats a long break. These yoga/all round work out capris are fabulous. I am 52, and a size 18, so I find it difficult to get plus size active wear, but the XL is perfect. Theres a nice compression, but no sausage sensation happening. I am also impressed that the waistband does not roll. I would love to see a thigh cell pocket in these, but that aside, they are great! Im ridiculously picky when it comes to my yoga pants. I have a pair of black, capri yoga pants that I have literally worn thin over the years, because they are so perfect. Over the past 8 months, Ive been searching for something that compares. These are the only pants that have come close!They are thin, yet thick enough I dont have to worry about them being see through. They are quite breathable- Ive been wearing them in 100 degree weather and Im surprisingly cool in them. They are the perfect length. The waistband is wide and rides high. The seams are tough, the material is soft, the legs and but are nice and fitted, yet not too tight. Im 55 and 130 lbs., and I ordered a medium. I do wish the waist was just a hair tighter them so I wouldnt have to pull them up once every great while.Overall, I am absolutely thrilled with these pants, and I will be ordering several more pairs to have on hand!! LOVE these!!! I originally ordered a size larger due to the reviews and had to return. Ordered my normal Sz and they are perfect. Ordering more now!! I am 56 and 185 lbs and a M is the correct size which is what I wear in old navy active wear. I am 56 tall. I am normally between a small and Medium. Size 8-10. These fit great. I ordered a Medium. I just ordered a navy, dark grey and another black! You will not find pants like this anywhere this quality for this price! Packaged nicely too! Came super fast! Love these yoga/ work out pants! I wear them for running, not yoga! But, whatever, get them!

Notes from the Community

Wish they had a better description as far as sizes go. These are great socks if you can get the manufacturer to actually show the size that these socks fit. Ive enclosed a photo. Need to return- a small is youth size 13-4 youth These Adidas soccer socks are decent, but they do have some flaws. The first is that the footbed doesnt have enough cushioning. This causes two problems. First is that, over time, the footbed naturally wears out and gets thinner. The extra thickness in the sole of most soccer socks mitigates this effect to some degree. Adidas says these socks have a cushioned foot-bed, but they dont feel like they do and they dont really look like they do. Moreover, the sole wears very thin very quickly. The second problem is that the socks fabric — a combination of Nylon and Spandex — has a slightly slippery texture that, when combined with the already-thin footbed, causes my feet to slip and slide inside my cleats. Another flaw is that the socks are too tight around the calf. I ordered the Size Large and they fit my Size 13 feet just fine, but they are a bit tight around my calves. Having said that, I am 61 and 185 lbs with athletic calves, so take it with a grain of salt. To be fair, these socks do have some positive features: durability, appearance, moisture wicking, ability to keep shin guards in place. All in all, this is a decent product for the price point, but there are better options out there. My son is a size 6, 12 year old. The S was perfect!!!!UPDATE! Ive lowered this rating to 1 Star. After using these socks, and comparing them to a pair of the same socks we bought in store last year, these socks are an inferior product. They are much thinner, and caused blisters on the back of my sons achilles. We wont be able to use these at all!!! I purchased a size Small for my 4 year old son and they fit him well. They are not the most comfortable socks - they arent soft but stay on his legs well when hes running around. They hold the shin guards in place and dont roll down his leg. For reference, my son is 4 years old, a size 12 sneaker and the Small fit well. I have no positive things to say about this sock. Ive used dozens of soccer socks from many brands over the years. Theyre mostly fine, including other Adidas socks. This one, however, is really terrible. It is extremely thin and it hardly has any elasticity at all. It behaves mostly like an old, worn out wool sock. It wont even stay up by itself. Im wondering if I got a pair that was made waaaaay at the beginning of a production run, maybe several years ago. Who knows, but it these ones really are garbage. I wanted to give my daughter some time before I got her actual opinion on these socks. She has played an entire Fall Season with a traveling Soccer Team and these are definitely her favorites. She normally doesnt have a preference on certain things, but with these socks, she told me that she could honestly tell a difference in between them and her usual preferred brand. These she said were hands down the best. They dont slide in her cleats and dont bunch up to make uncomforatable places in them either. Both of my sons really like these socks. Weve tried so many different brands and most of them are either too thick or holes wear into them way too easily. The socks are the perfect thickness and even provide some arch support. However, we own many, many pairs of them (they play soccer six days a week), and we have found that the fit is inconsistent. My older son wears a medium and has five pairs. Three of those pairs fit the way we want them to, one pair is oddly long, and one pair is really tight causing him to really struggle to get them on. My younger son has four small pairs. Three pairs fit him reasonably well (although he notices that some a just a little tighter than others), but one pair is big enough that it doesnt help keep his shin guards in place. My boys will often just trade out their too small/too big pairs with each other when they discover them. We purchased these socks for a U-09 girls soccer team instead of getting boring participation trophies. The girls were super excited and the quality of the sock was surprisingly high, especially for such outlandish colors. They love the socks and will now have matching socks next season when we get together. Depending on any new girls we have join the team, we may need to order more this fall. The colors are exactly as they appear in the picture. We love it.

Notes from the Community

These are not real stelle ballet flats. Its disappointing being lied to. I bought these for my son who is 12. He is just starting ballet after dancing hip hop for a couple of years and he tried out for the nutcracker at a local non-profit ballet company and got the role of Fritz. He wears a size 5 boys/mens shoes so I ordered the womens size 7. My two girls have danced for years so Ive bought a lot of ballet shoes this far. I like that these have the double strap that doesnt look too feminine. I also love that theyre leather and have the split sole. Theyre much more moldable to the foot then a polyurethane upper which is pretty stiff and doesnt breath or stretch. Another bonus of leather is that you can gently clean them if necessary with an alcohol wipe ( though with black for boys thats not needed but for my girls pink pairs Ive done this before a performance when its needed). Overall a great purchase and Ive been very happy with them. Love that these shoes do not have ties…they still have a very nice fit to my daughters feet and it is so nice that I am not re-tying all the time. I do wish the leather sole covered the whole bottom rather than just toe and heel. I got these for my 2.5 year old for Christmas and she loves them. Shes not in any dance classes yet but shes a big fan of Emma Wiggle and so she was excited to have proper ballet shoes to dance with Emma when we watch the Wiggles show. She wears a street shoe size 6. I ordered the 7 and they are the right length for her, but a little wide for her narrow foot. Her feet sweat a lot in them bc they are not real leather, but I knew that would happen and am fine with it for this price! Adorable ballet shoes! I got a larger size than I otherwise would have purchased on a super sale, but Im very glad I did because they fit perfectly!! Id say these are a good 1.5-2 sizes larger than what she wears in a New Balance or Nike. If you can get the sizing correct though, they are absolutely perfect - well made, beautiful pink color and most importantly, my daughter feels like a real ballerina in them 💗 By no means am I an expert in toddler ballet shoes but when compared to options locally at retailers these are significantly more robust. Sure the 9nes I could find locally were 1/2 to 3/4 the price but they all seemed to be made out of thin satin materials with minimal pads in the bottom. These are made out of thin leather like material on top and raw like pads in 5he bottom, these also seems to be a bit of an insole which is completely lacking in the cheaper shoes. My 3 year old so excited to see these along with the rest of her ballet outfit before even stepping into her first class. I hope that the seemingly higher quality makes a difference in her comfort and doesnt burden her undoubtedly more weight of the heavier materials Super cute and soft. Size 11 fit my daughter who wears size 10 shoes. Great product. I like that there is no bow. I ordered these for my sons dance class and he loves them. I read multiple reviews that sizing was small and to order up. I did that and ended up with slippers that were huge. I kept them because I know hell need them eventually, but ended up reordering in his actual size and they fit well. They are a tiny bit loose but certainly not enough to come off his feet. Also, hes 5 so they might fit even better in just a couple months with the way hes growing.
