5.0 out of 5 stars A great family game, 10 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: BezzerWizzer (Toy)
Recommended to us by some danish friend. An excellent game, fun for all. For younger children probably better to pair with an adult. It has a tremendous variety of questions and also allows some flexibility with regards how questions are take. Seems in many ways better than trivial pursuit

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful read for 8 - 9 year olds, 1 Mar 2013

The stories and the beautiful production of this series of books, translated from the original Italian are excellent at engaging readers of many different levels. The characters are fun, and my daughter also enjoys their humour, and the situations that are a mixture of 'real' and 'surreal'. So some life issues addressed, whilst also in a fantasy world, very clever. The production with some images, but playful changing of text fonts and colours etc.. makes it a text that draws the reader in very quickly. I originally heard about this series from an italian friend, delighted they are now finding their way into european english speaking world, having been available in North America for a while already. The challenge is to keep up as she gets through them very quickly!

5.0 out of 5 stars challenging puzzles, excellent for outings, 29 Dec 2011
= Durability:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Have bought this and versions of it as presents for many friends. Everytime it is reported back as a great success. We have by now travelled a lot with it, and it has got us through many restaurant dinners with the children. Plus of this version is that the puzzle booklet is in the box with the pieces, so less likely to get lost.

4.0 out of 5 stars fulfils Dr Who aspirations, 29 Dec 2011
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:3.0 out of 5 stars 
My son became an avid Dr Who fan this year. During the summer he got in 11th Dr Who sonic screwdriver, and got this 'personalise your sonic screwdriver set' for his birthday. It offers multiple permutations and we've had many discussions about which option is best.It is of solid build so can stand up to the various combinations This combined with the 'you tubes' on the secrets of the dr who sonic screwdrivers fuel lots of good play.
