Authentic Working Wood Trebuchet Kit by Pathfinder
5.0 out of 5 stars We liked it, 10 July 2014
My boys, aged 15 and 10, put this together in a couple of hours and then had quite a lot fun using it to shoot various objects in the garden. Instructions are excellent, with a dash of humour added, and the parts all fitted pretty well - I suggest if you buy one, use a Stanley knife rather than the suggested scissors to score the dowels (basically you get some dowelling which needs to be scored and then snapped into a number of wooden assembly pins).

I don't expect that it will get a great deal more than occasional use, but it makes for a good project and looks good on the boys' shelves.
2014 year wall planner - large size laminated by Tallon
5.0 out of 5 stars Old fashioned, 24 May 2014
Bought this two years running. Great for marking up basic stuff at home on the kitchen wall eg term times, holidays etc. First saw it used by a colleague at work for monthly deadlines, so versatile. Not something for detailed daily appointments though.
Q Connect 400ml Whiteboard Surface Cleaner by Q-Connect
I had two whiteboards of differing construction and materials, one of which was getting hard to use. both cleaned up brilliantly. Would buy again.
