Why Are We Addicted to Bargains?

overview of the CharacterWorld items received

We all know how pricey branded goods can be that feature popular children's characters, so we all like a to hunt out a good bargain when it comes to these types of products, but we never want to skimp on quality. 

I had never heard of CharacterLinens.co.uk, so being asked to review some of their items sounded like a great opportunity to find out if this would be a site that could give the best of both worlds regarding price and quality - or if it was just another cheap online shop promising the world and delivering sub-standard products!
