So when I came across this gadget while browsing this site I thought my problems were over. How wrong I was !
So the bell arrived, well wrapped (thank you Play.com) and attractively presented in a plastic carton. My suspicions were first raised when upon opening I discovered a woeful lack of instructions, so I thought to myself, well in for a penny in for a pound, grasped the handle firmly and gave it a great big shake...
Nothing happened... I rang it again and waited for some considerable time and again, nothing. I checked the packaging once more, to check I wasn't missing anything but the wording is a clear and unambiguous promise. Ring the bell, they will come and so will you.
Several vigorous shakes later and still absolutely no action whatsoever, I concluded that perhaps it would only work outside, so off I popped to the local shopping precinct, perhaps other people needed to hear the bell before it worked.
As I was led away by the local constabulary simultaneously decrying the efficacy of this product and protesting my innocence I vowed to ensure that no-one else would buy the bell and suffer my disappointment and consequent ignominy, hence this review.
Even the Free Delivery was no solace for my stolen dreams.
