Great watch, terrible strap!, 16 Feb. 2013
The watch itself is great! And the clever split-colour face with the minutes in smaller type is a great way to learn to tell the time. Our 6-year-old managed to learn within a couple of hours of receiving the watch and proceeded to give us accurate updates of the time for the rest of the day. I had the same watch when I was a child and had remembered how easy it made telling the time.
However, the strap is rubbish!!! First of all, it's velcro. Why today's children can't have a normal watch strap with a buckle, I will never know! Second of all, the strap fits me perfectly (a 34-year-old) and is therefore much too big for the wrist of a 6-year-old. As a result, the watch falls off all the time and has been close to being lost forever several times.
So, I recommend the watch itself but we will be taking ours to the menders to get a new strap fitted asap!
