write your true thoughts and experiences. I find it best not to check other reviews until i have completed it so i'm not influenced by others.Write your thought as they come to you and don't try to put too much thought into your experiences as this tends to taint them. Do put alot of thought into the whole review, though.

I try and incorporate some humor in most of my reviews. I'm not too sure if I succeed or not, though.

Humor can have a lot of influence on a review, quite often making a reader feel more connected to the reviewer. I find it best to sort of write like I talk when appropriate. So like, if I were explaining a product to a friend and said something that made them laugh, or thought of something funny about the product while using it, I would try and add it to the review.

To be honest, it really depends on my mood.

If the humor is based on a myth or untruth or stereotype about an activity or use of a toy I tend to get annoyed because I think it somehow perpetuates the myth instead of resolving it. Gosh, I hope that makes sense.

If the humor is used as an infantile response, I really get annoyed. But, if it's meant to ease into the idea of something without being tasteless or stereotypical I say bring it on! I try to be clever more so than humorous.

Humor is something best to be spontaneous. Disaster by Dreamkitten hit me hard,but to be honest, I could picture it and it's a review I'll never forget. I wish that she would have continued with that framework of writing. I could tell in her writing that it wasn't thought up, but real. Hats off to her and anyone else that can capture that. The review may have needed grammer help, but if that was there, what a writer she would be.

It can be good or bad really. I do enjoy humor, but I have a dry, sarcastic, and often silly sense of humor.

I like humor when I read a review. I agree it is best when spontaneous.

To me, humor makes a useful review extremely useful.

I'm definitely a fan of a bit of humour in a review. However, when the entire thing is puns and jokes, it does lose it's appeal.

I think it does, especially if it is something there are a ton of reviews for.
