5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful toy. Just ask my grandson !, 3 Aug 2007
Just to say that if you are pondering whether to buy this toy, then your money will be extremely well spent. My grandson has 5 of the boxes from the construction series and absolutely loves them. They provide hours of imaginative play that involve either of his grandparents designated to humble supporting roles as the vehicles and figures are marshalled across the carpet. Typically like Brio, Plan and Lego this is yet another continental toy that puts to shame some of the horrible plastic junk that adorns the shelves of our supermarkets and toy shops. Do your children or grandchildren a favour and invest in some of these Woody Click toys.

I have just finished this wonderful novel and agree totally with one of the quotes on the book jacket about finishing the novel with regret.

My grandson has opened up a whole new world to me, one that I didn't know existed. That's the world, of course, of television programmes and dvds aimed at the very young. From what I've seen so far two programmes stand head and shoulders above the rest and they are Pocoyo and Pingu.( I'm a big fan of Little Princess, but I think it appeals to me more than it does to [...]grandson ! )Anyway back to the two Ps and I cannot believe there isn't an adult or child that could fail to be entranced by these wonderful programmes. I would absolutely recommend Pocoyo to everyone. Buy it ! You won't be disppointed.
