Wooden Handled Children's Skipping Rope by Party Bags 2 Go

1.0 out of 5 stars Straight in the bin!, 1 Dec 2012
The quality is not just cheap but dangerously poor. The worst i've ever seen.

I love Supernanny but was very disappointed by this book. It's very badly written in that it seems to have been written with absolutely no systematic pre-thought or careful planning. It is far too brief and sometimes dangerously vague on certain important issues, whereas relatively secondary issues have huge waffly chapters devoted to them. It feels badly weighted and didn't give me the information I had hoped from watching the programmes. Perhaps she doesn't like giving too many of her secrets away in print? I certainly don't think this does justice to Supernanny's hands-on brillance. Perhaps it's just that her talent is not in writing such books. I trusted the Supernanny brand but feel… Read more
