896492 Trust Gaming GXT 490 Fayzo Gaming Headse

FAYZO Headset from Trust

This is a over ear gaming headset from a brand that produces good quality items at a lot less money than similar products. It is also unusual in that it is not Wi-Fi or 3.5mm plug, it is USB not USB 'C' but that part could be resolved should you have a USB 'C' to USB adapter.
I do not have the largest head and no hair to speak of so the well padded headband comes in very useful, fully compressed there is 4cm of extra expansion on either side, I found it just right fully compressed, then there is 18cm from the base of the earpieces to the centre of the base of the headband. The external measurements of the earpieces are 10cm tall and 8cm wide. There is a good length of USB lead which totals 2.1metres surely plenty long enough.

Magnetic Tiles

This item can be played with by children as soon as they can crawl, the shapes and colours will fascinate and then as they progress they can progress to the art of building designs.

The weight of the individual pieces vary from 18 to 34cm according to their size and shape. There are eight different colours all of which are pastel to make the whole range of colours.

896442 The Traitors Official BBC Card Gam

Last Minute Gifts

First a pair of cheese knives that are at home when together. Second a card game based on the BBC TV Series The Traitors. Neither are that heavy so will be easy for anyone to post.
These knives are rather different and although sold as a pair they are for different types of cheese, the solid blade for hard cheese and the patterned blade for use with softer type cheeses. Each knife is just under 14cm long with 6.5cm of that being the handle. When together the blade is facing inwards towards the other knife. When apart the cutting part of the knife is a curve. The oblong top part forms a face when together and in that position there is no danger to anyone.

Panda Dome Premium

There are several versions of Panda ranging in price from Free to around £30 depending of what is covered, however if you have more than one PC extra PC's seem to be covered for only a few pounds extra when purchased direct from Panda. There are also options for more than a single year. Here I am looking at Panda Dome Premium.

I downloaded it from the Panda site it took only a few minutes to starting the full scan which can be more than 30,000 files to scan. After the full scan you can choose one of three types of scan, full scan, custom scan or critical areas.

896424 WITHINGS ScanWatch 2 Heart Health Hybrid Smartwatc
