5.0 out of 5 stars adored it, 1 Nov 2009
This is a great-looking film made with traditional stop-go animation and it is not meant to be all about CGI and special-effects. The end result is gorgeous. The animals have a slight jumpiness to their movements but that is the style of the movie and strangely realistic. The score is also very simple, mainly (wholly?) a drum that you hear whenever the action it about to speed up. I found this entirely adequate, stylish, and even humorous. The creatures themselves are gorgeous to look at. George Clooney gives a faultless, stylish, humorous performance as Mr Fox. The story is about a fox who has settled down into marriage but who can't resist one more adventure. I loved it and so did my six-year-old and not many movies can reach such a wide age range as that!

= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
It is easy enough for a six-year-old to play. It took him a few trys to get the hang of it, but now he wins every race. He loves it.

5.0 out of 5 stars handwriting practise for kids in year one, 26 July 2009
they use these in my son's school for kids in yr 1 of KS1. Great if your child needs a bit of extra practise. You have to buy 5 or 6 which is a pain, but perhaps the school can use the left over ones?

4.0 out of 5 stars Great, if a bit noisy when the planets twirl!, 3 May 2009
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:4.0 out of 5 stars 
educational, easy to put up on ceiling as it's very lightweight, plus it should last as it's out of reach! One big minus - it is very noisy when the planets are in motion so you wouldn't want to leave it on overnight!

this is a great starter kit. The cars stay on the track. There is no lap counter though, but for a starter, can't complain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jesus Tonight!, 7 Oct 2008
Paul is at his funniest and best here. He tells us he was beaten by the priests at one of his schools, but god love im, he doesn't dwell on this like misery memoirs do, no, instead he soldiers on to the next funny bit. What a pro!
I couldn't put it down and so I finished it quickly, so there had better be a sequel. I even thought up a title, 'At My Lover's Knee...and Other Low Joints'. Now THAT might top this!
