A reader shares some toughta about Rita Moreno: A Memoir wriiten by Rita Moreno, "Not much to write about. She blames her Mother for leaving her family behind in PR, but seems like Rita didn't go look for them when she was older."


Janice Vance says "Ordered a unisex pack for my 9 year old daughter. Biggest waste of money ever. £19.99 for what I could have got in poundland/b&m or homebargains for half the price. Cheap and nasty tat and as another reviewer has said more suitable for a 5/6 year old. Unisex and they include a LOL activity book? When I complained I was offered a 10% refund. Wow. I declined and have just taken it as a life lesson. Now that my GENUINE review is back up, isn't it sad that this company accused me of lying about my experience just to get a refund ( which I didn't get or want). At least I had copies of the emails between myself and them. My opinion of this company is even worse now, no customer service at all."
Mr Humfrey says "We were recently flying on holiday with our 18 month old son. We were anxious about how he would cope on the flight for three hours and KeepEmQuiet, seemed like a great idea. We ordered on a Thursday night and we're flying on Monday morning, so paid £8.95 extra, for the 'NEXT DAY' delivery option, to ensure it arrived on time. We believed it would be delivered on the Saturday. To our great disappointment we then received a notification from DPD that they would be delivering on Monday, which would have been too late to arrive in time. We contacted KeepEmQuiet and they said that the delivery was now between us and DPD and there was nothing they could do. They asserted that DPD were causing a delay which we soon established was not true. DPD do offer Saturday delivery, but this was not the service that KeepEmQuiet provided. When we got back from holiday, we contacted them again to say that we had been mislead by the delivery option. After tell us how their packs are also great for train and car journeys, they stopped responding to us. UPDATE: after posting this 1 star review (and telling them about it), they did respond to us and gave us a full refund, but it took us a lot of effort and communication in order to achieve this."
Samantha Morelli says "I ordered three packs from Keep ‘em Quiet in February . One for my two year old daughter one each for three year old twin boys. Requested the boys packs be identical. All arrived in good time and was pleased with the girls pack and the boys pack was nice BUT not identical; got in touch with the company who were quick to respond with an apology and explained that they would swap one of the packs for me. Which was great except the courier never turned up to retrieve either pack and a replacement for one didn’t arrive. So I wasn’t quite sure what was going on. As the packs were for the twins birthday I had to give them their non-identical pack and hope for the best (anyone with twins knows that most of the time things need to be identical to save arguments and keep the peace!) the packs went down well and only a few quarrels were had. The items in the girls pack were a bit off I guess you could say; the little dolls head and one arm kept coming off when my daughter stroked her hair or tried to make her dance with her other dolls. The snacks were a nice variety and the bags were really attractive but it seems a fair bit of money for something that if you have the time you can put together yourself by going online or popping in to bargain shops. I also ordered a wrist band to put my contact details on in case my daughter wondered off and it was a two pack which was a lovely surprise as for the money (less than £5) I really was only expecting one. The company were polite but when I was asked to review their products on their website they were not happy with what I had to say sadly. If you don’t have time to throw a pack together yourself and you don’t require anything to specific then they are nice packs and it’s a good idea. However now we use the bag and put our own things in-my daughter does really love the bag!"
Sarah says "Definitely not worth the money, ordered two, 1 for 3 year old boy and another for 1 year old girl. Just a few 3 page colouring books and a flimsy plastic toy, none of it age appropriate."
