5.0 out of 5 stars a lot of goodies in a little packet 19 Sep 2010

Children at War: World War 2 replica Memorabilia Pack (World War 2 - Memorabilia Packs)
This item looks like a huge great pile in the advert, but when it arrives faces will drop, it comes in a tiny packet and looks disapointing - HOWEVER it isn't the size that counts but how you use it!
Inside the little packet is a large selection of well chosen, interesting, informative and clearly printed replicas that will delight any history fan from ages 2 - 92 yrs. Before my son actually opened the packet I did feel a bit let down, but after seeing the contents I think I will be adding a few more of these to my Christmas present list.

4.0 out of 5 stars Children's Memorabilia for World War 2. 13 Feb 2012
By Malcolm TOP 500 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
Durability: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Resources for Teaching have published several Memorabilia Packs covering
such things as the Victorian Era, RMS Titanic, World War One, and this one
which covers the experiences of children in World War Two.
The first thing you become aware of on opening it, is the extremely small
size of the contents, the display advert gives an impression of much more.
That said, there is enough in the pack to create interest for all but the
most bored of minds.
The pack comprises a copy of the Children's Newspaper, the Boys Own Paper
dated December 1944 containing stories and adverts of the 1940's.
A ration book, Ministry of Food cookery leaflet on puddings listing such
questionable delicacies as Prune Sponge, and puddings that required the
use of potatoes.There is also a copy of the label of a wartime issue of
Kit Kit priced 3d, and made of plain chocolate as milk was in short supply.

Of interest too are the Evacuation notices, and copies of labels that
a child had to wear on their jacket/coat. Instructions on where to pick
up a babies anti-gas helmet,a Civil Defence Leaflet from 1939 on The Why
and How of Evacuation.

Also included is a one page English Composition dated 1938, from the pen of
a schoolboy giving his experiences of life. Two facsimile postcards of
the era make up the rest of the better quality items.
Where the pack falls down is in the cigarette card size items, which show
military uniforms, adverts for toys and games of the period. These are only
some 4cm by 6cm and difficult to read and would likely easily be lost.

4.0 out of 5 stars Children at War 21 Oct 2009
By C. Self
This replica pack is ideal as an introduction to WWII topic. However as a teaching resource many of the items at miniature and would be better at a size to show a class.

Received my order for this today and was over the moon with it. Cannot wait to go through this package with my boys later tonight. Really brings the war to life especially from a childs' point of view. Fantastic product, now going to look see if there are other packs to make a collection with. Awesome for school and awesome for home use.
