Appalled with the quality of this product, only fit for firewood in my opinion.
on 28 March 2011
I ordered this product for a friend's birthday present, to play as a family game. I did not check the contents of the box, presuming that it would not be too difficult to manufacture blocks of wood, but after he opened it and we got it out to play with the children, I very much wished I had, as I would have returned the item.
The wooden blocks were cheap offcuts, which were extremely poorly finished (if indeed you would consider them 'finished'). Several of them had a thick red ink mark striped down the side, a few of them even had serial/batch numbers printed on the sides (as you would find down the side of planks etc. on raw wood), one of them even had rounded edges down the two upper long sides, and all of them had been very crudely sawn off at the ends, and probably never seen sanding paper, leading to a danger of scratches and splinters when handling. Many of the bricks were not even the same size/length.
I would not recommend purchasing this product to anyone, unless they have a woodburning stove and need some fuel.
