Hi, signed up.

Groovee Wed 22-Jan-14 13:00:41

Have signed up. Have an about to turn 14 year old.

Hi AnnMumsnet, I am on the panel but they always use an old e mail address so I usually miss them.
I have a 15 year old.

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 22-Jan-14 15:56:05

secretscwirrels - do you want me to amend the email address? Just PM it to me and I will do this. thanks

busymummy3 Wed 22-Jan-14 16:57:00

Have a just celebrated birthday on Monday 20/01 15 year old and a 16 year old soon to be 17 in 2 weeks time . May be interested depending on what the product is ?

Groovee Wed 22-Jan-14 21:32:19

Have applied for both my children

Theimpossiblegirl Wed 22-Jan-14 21:50:14

AnnMumsnet- am I registered properly? I haven't had an email for this one and have a 12 year old.

Signed up....have a 12 year old DD smile

Can't access my email ATM - all thanks to DD who is almost 13.
If the product is a bollox your mum's laptop related thing, it would be right up DDs street.

ShangriLaLaLa Thu 23-Jan-14 06:14:00

Have just signed up. DD is 12, so I'm keen to take part.

ZingSweetApple Thu 23-Jan-14 06:17:49

is "I'm nosy" a good enough answer to why I want to be on the panel?grin

(and where do you live is a daft question when I have just given my addressconfused )

anyway my eldest is 12

Fragglewump Thu 23-Jan-14 06:20:02


Fragglewump Thu 23-Jan-14 06:20:21

Yes please. Dd is 12 and ds is 13

IAmNotAPrincessIAmAKahleesi Thu 23-Jan-14 06:36:37

I have just signed up, I have a fifteen and a sixteen year old (and one soon to be twelve) smile

I hope it doesn't matter that I signed up in this name which is a new name change for me?

VivaLeBeaver Thu 23-Jan-14 06:42:34

I've signed up previously. Dd is 12.

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 23-Jan-14 07:45:26

VivaLeBeaver - did you get the email this week from me re a test for this age group? (new mailer and I want to check emails are getting out there...!)

IAmNotAPrincessIAmAKahleesi - no worries....

thanks all

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 23-Jan-14 07:46:51

Theimpossiblegirl - you should have. Will resend

VivaLeBeaver Thu 23-Jan-14 08:06:46

Ann, found the email and filled out the survey monkey now. Thanks. Missed the email in the middle of too much spam!

SaggyOldClothCatPuss Thu 23-Jan-14 08:12:55

I have an almost 15yo and have filled out the survey.

DoNotLookDown Thu 23-Jan-14 08:36:54

My two are 12 and 14, and have signed up.

lljkk Thu 23-Jan-14 09:44:14

Do you know, I have tried a few times to register for the panel but I die of boredom half way thru. It asks so many faffy questions and I'm 99% sure it will lead to items being marketed to me that I have ZERO interest in.

Come on, talk me around if you can. Eligible DC are 12+14, as well as some younger.

TickleMyTitsTillFriday Thu 23-Jan-14 09:51:47

Signed. Have a 14 year old smile

slug Thu 23-Jan-14 10:01:24

Another member of the panel with a suitably aged child who didn't get the email

Merrylegs Thu 23-Jan-14 10:01:45

I am on the panel and have kids this age but haven't received an email either?

Theimpossiblegirl Thu 23-Jan-14 10:34:05

Thanks for the email- I didn't get the original and checked my spam box but it wasn't there. May be worth re-sending to all.

Floralnomad Thu 23-Jan-14 10:39:28

I'm also signed up but have not received the email for this ,my dd is 14 .

Ohwhatfuckeryisthis Thu 23-Jan-14 10:46:04

15 yr old. I put nosy bugger down too.

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 23-Jan-14 11:48:37

<bangs on the shed door....cooeee Tech....!>

Floralnomad - you should have had it - pls could you pm me the best email address for you..

Willemdefoeismine Thu 23-Jan-14 12:47:53

What's the product trial about - is this the vitamin one? If so, signed up DS for it but if it's anything else he's a willing 'guinea pig'!

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 23-Jan-14 13:15:08

yes willem!

Picturesinthefirelight Thu 23-Jan-14 13:17:15

Another with a 12 yr old on the panel who hasn't had an email.

Picturesinthefirelight Thu 23-Jan-14 13:19:32

Another with a 12 yr old on the panel who hasn't had an email.

Pantah630 Thu 23-Jan-14 16:41:51

Just signed up, have a just turned 14yo DS

Theimpossiblegirl Thu 23-Jan-14 21:04:37

Got the resend and another panel email just after 5 tonight. They went straight to my spam box which has never happened before so make sure you check there too.

rubyshoes3 Thu 23-Jan-14 23:08:43

I have completed the sign up but how do I sign up for the product test?

BackforGood Thu 23-Jan-14 23:13:38

Is this the same as the e-mail I got yesterday, looking for parents of school age children / governors/ school managers?

I have a 12 yr old and a 15 yr old and am happy to help, but haven't had one about a product test... should I have?

I'm on the panel and have 12 and 13 year olds but didn't get an email - where would I sign up/what is it for?

On the panel and have a 16 yr old but must've missed the email.

Lomaamina Fri 24-Jan-14 20:59:16

I too haven't had a message (and have checked my SPAM folder) and have a DS aged 15.

Poppylovescheese Fri 24-Jan-14 21:29:22

Yes my Ds is 12

Tuhlulah Fri 24-Jan-14 22:02:34

I am also on the panel and didn't get an e-mail and am eligible and interested.

jennywren123 Fri 24-Jan-14 23:20:32

I don't have an email. I'm on the panel and have a 13 year old daughter.

musicposy Sat 25-Jan-14 00:31:46

I'm already on the panel but if it's the right email it sadly contains gelatine (which is a real shame as from what I can see it doesn't need to be in there, fruit pectin does a similar job) and my 14 yo is vegetarian.
So will have to say no to this one.
Unless I have the wrong one in which case please resend the email smile

musicposy Sat 25-Jan-14 00:33:12

I thought the manufacturers might want to know the reason for not taking part and that might be as useful as feedback from those who do , if that makes sense.

So put me in the prize draw? grin

Picturesinthefirelight Sat 25-Jan-14 07:35:45

I've now had the email but unfortunately dd has to be very careful about this sort of thing. She tends to get the runs if she has too much of stuff like maltitol so well have to decline.

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Sat 25-Jan-14 08:58:50

hi - have tried to send out the email again and have sent it to the new folks who signed up from this thread
If you are on the panel already thanks but it didn't necessarily get sent to everyone on the panel as we do like to try and abide by how often folks like to get sent stuff (bit like buses sometimes...).
We also have had lots of folks interested so are pretty much ok for this one.
Keep your eyes peeled for future opportunities

thanks, Ann

kippersmum2 Sat 25-Jan-14 09:55:26

I am registered and have a 14 year old son who loves to test things thoroughly and enjoys feeding back

Ann I completed the survey on Friday and when submitting it just seemed to throw me back to the mn site. I don't therefore know if I've registered or not - is there any way of checking this please?

homeanddry Sun 26-Jan-14 14:15:32

Is it another UK only one?

If so, <sulk>

Have the chosen people been notified yet????

florencebabyjo Mon 03-Feb-14 08:52:35

Hi, I am a panel member but haven't been sent the details for this, could you resend please!

DifferentNow Mon 03-Feb-14 09:03:07

Hi AnnMumsnet

I'm on the panel but don't think I've had this email either. Have 12yo DD.

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 03-Feb-14 15:58:21

hi - this one is all sorted now and testers will be notified in the next day or so, just trying to sort out deliveries. thanks

Was hoping to get this one but haven't heard anything sad got a son in the other category age 6-11 & was lucky enough to get the trial for him but not heard about this category for my eldest son so there are gonna be arguments!! sad

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 06-Feb-14 10:15:27

sorry mummyB - we ended up with quite a few folks!

MaryBS Thu 06-Feb-14 17:02:21

I've received 2 packs, one for each of my children. Where do I give feedback please?

MaryBS Tue 11-Feb-14 14:29:58

Thanks, have completed the questionnaire... my kids loved them! That really surprised me!

ibbydibby Sun 16-Feb-14 11:50:30

AnnMumsnet - have completed questionnaire but there was nowhere for comments - when I asked DS how easy it was to chew, he commented it was "really weird". I tried to probe a bit further, and he said "just weird...bit hard then a bit soft". Just thought I would mention in case you get the chance to feedback comments too.

kippersmum2 Mon 17-Feb-14 10:51:17

I have a keen 14 year old boy who loves doing tests.

gazzalw Mon 17-Feb-14 12:46:45

I cannot recall DS ever voluntarily undertaking any activities of daily living without chivvying (it's almost as if he's got total memory loss every 24 hours and doesn't remember what he needs to do!) BUT he's been religiously taking his one a day ever since the product trial started!

Please can you feed that back to the manufacturers, Ann - it's a breakthro'! grin

mummybell11777 Sat 10-May-14 03:39:13

Hi im new to mumsnet and I have a 12 yr old boy that would love to help out by testing priducts reading books or even just giving opions on the life of a 12 yr old boy

maloofysmum Mon 12-May-14 19:47:16

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 13-May-14 17:06:55

HALA Mon 19-May-14 13:19:08

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 21-May-14 11:53:59
