Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a gift for my husband who prefers to wet shave than use an electric shaver. I was a bit disappointed with the packaging, a flimsy cardboard box, which makes this item look a bit cheap. However, the razor inside is stunning. It looks expensive, feels expensive as is weighty in the hand and the chrome just shines. I'm going to hunt out a nicer looking presentation case before I give this to him since the box lets it down quite a bit. But I'm very happy with the item itself - clearly I haven't tested it but it looks like it will be ideal. Be nice to get some traditional shaving soap and a brush to go with it.

I think this is a good kit overall for a child who already knows the very basics of knitting and is ready to make a few projects. I think it will fall short on actually teaching a child to knit since the instructions on that are just not that clear - kids would be better off watching some how to knit videos on youtube or having a very good and clear photo tutorial book that they can follow. I can knit but I found the instructions here confusing myself.

If the child can already do the basics then they can forget about those frustrating instructions and focus on making the items instead which are fun and colourful projects for kids to make. There is plenty of wool provided as well… Read more

This was quite a bit better than I anticipated. For a start, the case was much bigger than I thought it might be and it actually had quite a few contents inside - far more than I expected which was a lovely surprise.

I wouldn't say this is a 'first' sewing kit since the contents and items are really ideal for around age 7 and up. And even then, most children will need supervision with the projects. But it is a very nice kit and it certainly made my 7 year old a great birthday gift.

The needles enclosed are sharp so not for very young children and they could do with a little needle case thrown in for storage of these small (and easily lost) items.

Everything… Read more
