*I have been given a Roku to review for the purpose of this post but the opinions are entirely my own


  1. We've been looking at similar things to this for our girls bedroom but they've all been a bit too pricey or not enough features. This one seems perfect for them though. Thanks for the fab review :)

    1. Thanks Clare, Yes I was impressed with the price too!

  2. I have been looking at getting one of these for my bedroom & I think they are quite good priced & if they are easy to get working that is perfect!
