My 8 year old son got this for Christmas and loves it. Great way of keeping up to date with all the football league tables. Each team name is in the colour of their strips which makes it more fun and easier to find.
Had searched in vain for a cardboard "Shoot"-type league table with removable tabs, but this is better still. Just what I wanted, yet much more durable, and as it will last forever it will save me having to search in vain again next year!
I completely love this. When I was little I had something similar and even though I hated football I loved placing the teams every week. So when I saw this chart advertised I couldn't resist buying it for my son. When I opened the parcel I was disappointed with the size as it seemed so small. Yet this is actually the perfect size, and because it folds means we can even take it on holiday. It has a magnet for every team in the league and many of the conference teams in case they are promoted in the future. I was over the moon to see Grimsby and Halifax even had their own magnets along with many other teams currently not in the league. Then just be sure there are also several blanks for you to fill in any other team not already covered. It is not often you can buy things that beat your childhood memories, but this is so much better than the one I had as a child. We just wish they would prove a cricket chart next
Bought this for my seven-year-old son who is football crazy and loves scouring the results and tables as much as watching the matches. He spends ages updating these magnetic tables - we even bought one for his mate for his birthday present and he loves it too. Make sure you buy an appropriate white board type pen as it doesn't come with one. When we bought this, it recommended one so we were able to buy both together. People may scoff at something like this which is a bit of a throwback but if it keeps my kids off the gadgets for a few minutes then it gets thumbs up from me.
Bought for a Christmas present and is now firmly part of the essential football viewing kit required by my nephew. For a football mad youngster, this was perfect - magnets, league tables, football, easily carry-able (although watch out that the teams don't fall off) - I couldn't have been happier to see him so happy, he loves it. It will no doubt be out again next season.
I have now bought this for 4 6 - 8 year olds as birthday presents and they all love it! I have become a favourite with their mums as it keeps them quiet for ages when they are updating their statistics!
It is disappointing that it doesn't come with the pen included (even though 1 advert said that it did). I ordered some pens from Amazon, and they weren't expensive, but still would have thought it would have been included in the set.
This was bought as a stocking filler for a 10 year old, it was a last minute purchase, but ended up being the BEST gift (according to the 10yr old) Kept him quiet for hours, just remember ot make sure you have the dry wipe pen for them to use! Fabulous though, big thumbs up.
brought as a xmas present , i used to buy the shoot magazine as a young lad ,and that had a a cardboard ladder with teams. I loved it . I wasnt sure if this would be liked or hated ! but 8year old i brought it for loved it , so 4 stars minimum , hey might even buy one for myself .happy to recommend
