My daughter has now had this for nine months and she really likes it but there are some problems about the quality I have to mention:
After just a month the zip started to get repeatedly caught in a hole in the lining as my daughter closed it amd you had to wiggle it and jiggle it to get it out again. The other main complaint is because of its shape it gets dirty round the bottom very easily and can't be cleaned without it making an hour+ long activity. The colour scheme is nice and the inside is (or was) a nice clean white but the 'squishy' butterfly among the ribbons attached to the zip got a hole in it by the end of the first week. This is a good lunch box if you are looking for a tempory one to use for just a week/month but there are some key flaws in the make.

Having read all of the other books in the series, I bought this for my son a few months ago. The puzzles are a range of difficulty. The tips at the back help with some questions, tell you the answers for bothers and leave you with absoloutley no clue whatsoever for others. As well as puzzles, there are fact files and lots of other pieces of information tucked inside.Often the paragraph at the top of the page holds a clue in it as my daughter figured out very quickly.

My daughter loved the film and the series but we are not sure about some of the language choices? Lots of asterixes which sometimes have to be taken with a pinch of salt. The plot is as allways filled with comedy and Gieon Defoe writes great plots.

This was fairly hard to put together but now my son rides it to school (2 miles away) practically every day and it hasn't shown any signs of breaking unlike the other one. Back wheel has brake to step on.

I bought this for my 11 year old daughter and she loved it straight away. Nothing wrong with it exept a loose thread on the eye.
We got it on a grat deal and we really got our money's worth! Come in lots of other colours as well. Big price difference between this colour and the rest (all 4 more expensive) but I'm not complaining!
We have now had this for 2 weeks and it hasn't shown any signs of wear and tear despite lots of uses.

Although expensive, bought this for my daughter for Christmas. The wii remote worked fine and the game has now become the most played. Find the Island board game a bit tear drawing because it is half luck, half skill but the mini games are great. Only problem is we couldn't find the english instuctions and we had to translate the German ones to understand. I would definitely recommend this although every time you use a 'mii' again it seems to have to add it to the list again.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not very good, 26 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Gave this to my daughter as a Christmas present and the first time used it was fine. After that the censor started to do funny things. It wasn't as if it didn't make the thing on the screen move at all - without moving the control the hand could be going all over the screen! In some races it started before the gun and this led to tears because of fouls and disqualifications. The arrows worked fine and the buttons, just the censor.

This review is from: Clockwork Chick (Toy)
I bought this as a Christmas present for my son to give his sister and they both loved it! Easily wound up but does not necessarily go in a straight line. It doesn't work on some surfaces. Very cute though!

Some hard pieces for my grade one child but on the whole satisfying. Some pictures (no colour) inside but not very good quality pages. Recommended for grade one or two level. Pieces not really arranged in order of easiness but there are a fair amount of them.

Bought this as an advent present for my daughter and she loved it. She could do most of the pieces sight reading straight away but found the Tchaikovsky one harder. It was great as she could play to the family on Boxing day. The songs are in a range of keys and some come with duets. The CD was good for her to get the tune of some of the unfamiliar carols. At the end there was Auld Lang Syne which wasn't very Christmassy? Very good price as well. Only complaint is the pages aren't as good quality as the other Fiddle time books.
