Super Mario All-Stars - 25th Anniversary Edition (&hellip by Nintendo
5 of 10 people found the following review helpful
I think there is a fairly good shout for false advertising. They are advertising nes originals when they are serving a emulated version of the snes mario allstars. They have not changed anything and even on he option menus it shows the snes controler! They couldn't even be bothered to make it for the wii.

This release is lame and lazy of nintendo. I am a big fan but even at the price this is a rip off!

Stick to the vc market.
Tomy Thomas Tidmouth Bath Sheds by Tomy
My son was bought this as a present and he didn't know what it was supposed to do. I have to say I haven't got the slightest idea of it's function either. I thought it was from a dodgy batch to start with as the engines when taken from the shed are just fascias - almost like they are supposed to snap onto the front of a train? I can see that there are different draining points to give different effects but the toy is 90% pointless. How did this pass the design stage? never mind production?

2.0 out of 5 stars It's not Duplo!, 4 Nov 2010
I was looking forward to extending my sons xmas Duplo set with this cheap option to add bulk due to the cost of Duplo.

Whilst I agree that the blocks are the same shape and fit together, there is a complete difference to the quality. The plastic is flexible, which Duplo is not and it does not connect well with the other set, or even by itself. This stuff falls apart way too easily and is not supportive. I ended up keeping the container for brick storage and throwing the 200 blocks in a plastic carrier in the loft as I was to disappointed with the quality and could not be stuffed going for a refund.

A word of warning, you get what you pay for.
