Our Favourite Products Of The Year (So Far)

So here we are almost half way through 2011, (better start thinking about Xmas soon!) it seemed like a good point to reflect on all the great products we have seen released this year and pick our favourites.


  1. The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
  2. Black Swan
  3. The King’s Speech
  4. Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 1
  5. Mad Men – Season 4

Our Buyers Choice:


True Blood has got darker and sexier with each season, In season 3 you finally get some answers to what Sookie actually is and what Bill’s and Eric’s intentions really are. Each character gets more depth and you finally start to see everyone’s true colours.”



  1. Despicable Me
  2. The Social Network
  3. Tron: Legacy
  4. Resident Evil: Afterlife 3D
  5. The Other Guys

Our Buyers Choice:


Unlike some fighting based films, the story line was well written kept me interested and entertained throughout. Christian Bale played his character superbly and the onscreen partnership between him and Mark Wahlberg was very well done


  1. Now Thats What I Call Music 78 (Now 78)
  2. Foo Fighters – Wasting Light
  3. Adele – 21
  4. Lady Gaga – Born This Way
  5. Beyonce – 4

Our Buyers Choice:

“Even with this being their 20th album, rockers Motorhead proved they still had the fire (and the tunes!) returning this year with their best release in years. After being released in conjunction with Classic Rock mag in Dec 2010, this received a ‘proper’ release by EMI in Jan 2011, just about allowing this qualification!”


  1. Zumba Fitness
  2. LittleBigPlanet 2
  3. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
  4. Portal 2
  5. Mass Effect 2

Our Buyers Choice:


“This outshines every other tennis game on the market. It is brilliant, ultra realistic, great graphics & very satisfying to play. The only way to describe this game is ‘awesome’!”



  1. Teacup Piggies – Snowflake
  2. Hexbug – Elevation Habitat Set
  3. LEGO 4183 Pirates of the Caribbean – The Mill
  4. Doctor Who: Character Building Mini Set – The Tardis
  5. Angry Birds 4 Inch Plush with Sound – Red Bird

Our Buyers Choice:

“I’m fascinated by the random coupling of a felt pig with a plastic teacup. So wrong, yet so right. They talk, laugh and oink, there are even 6 to collect and they all have their own unique personality too!”
