5.0 out of 5 stars Much sturdiernbthan expected - no glue needed!, 27 Dec 2013
= Durability:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:3.0 out of 5 stars 
I hesitantly bought this toy for my seven year old, after reading previous reviews and can say I was pleasantly surprised. It took about 3 hours to put together, but it was worth the effort and quite fun once we got into the swing of it. A few things to note which may avoid any melt 7 year old (the recomended retail age for this toy) is going to be able to put this together themselves. Period! Either get them to help you, or leave you to it. The pieces come in a number of small plastic bags, that initially appear to have no logic. They are organised by like for like pieces, rather than the pieces you need for each stage. Suspect this throws a lot of people. I'd recommend emptying them all out somewhere with space and organising them into small piles first. Trust me when i say this'll make your life much easier!! The instructions are fairly easy to follow, however every now and then it'll show a stage without listing what pieces are needed first. No biggie as its obvious which pieces they are, just something to be aware of. It was MUCH sturdier than expected. We encountered no problems putting it together once locating the right pieces (no glue needed) and the bricks had a reassuring click to them quite often. I would say that if you don't want to be putting this together ever again, glue is probably a good idea. Because at the end of the day its a Lego set (albeit a cheaper version) and realistically isn't going to stay together indefinitely. I think this is a great set and a real bargain for the 30 we paid for it. There's no doubt that it would be over 100 if made by the real Lego company (very surprised to find that they didn't jump on that bandwagon). We've had lots of fun playing with it and its still together a few days later :) Final bit of advice....consider leaving the back panel off the blue police box, its much more fun if playing pieces can enter the tardis through the police box door :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Another wonderful cd from Lisa!, 17 Oct 2011
This review is from: Passenger (Audio CD)
It would be hard not to love Lisa Hannigan. Her voice is so soothing that it never fails to quieten the busiest of minds. Passenger is a mixed bag of the sweet, simple styled songs that most instantly loved on Sea Sew cd and more intense tracks, that i can't help but wonder if there was a snow patrol influence to them. Whatever, they are all lush! Well done Lisa for another wonderful cd.
