4.0 out of 5 stars Fun to play and learning for everyone!
Bought these for my 8 year old son who is hooked on the CBBC TV series. He absolutely loves them and has learnt lots of gross facts about all the historical figures in the set.
Only note would be that they say they are 3D Top Trumps, but you need to enter a code from the cards onto a website, show the card to a webcam which will then return a 3D image. This didn't...

1.0 out of 5 stars Not 3D - don't waste your fiver
Bought this for my son who's mad on HH. We were really looking forward to seeing some cool 3D effect cards but these are NOT 3D at all. You are instructed on the inside card to go to a site and download some software which will interact with a webcam to produce a 3D effect - not the same thing at all. Wouldn't be so bad if the cards were a decent quality but they are...

Only note would be that they say they are 3D Top Trumps, but you need to enter a code from the cards onto a website, show the card to a webcam which will then return a 3D image. This didn't really bother my son but I felt it was slightly misleading. Lots of fun nevertheless!

You are instructed on the inside card to go to a site and download some software which will interact with a webcam to produce a 3D effect - not the same thing at all. Wouldn't be so bad if the cards were a decent quality but they are pretty poor - the drawings are not by Martin Brown and the info is too sketchy to be very interesting. If I hadn't opened them they would definitely be going straight back.

Top trumps game based on horrible histories - 3D image involves showing the card to a webcam, the novelty wore off very quickly....
other than that it is just a top trump card game - something to do when it is raining

3.0 out of 5 stars ok but don't expect Boudicca and co!, 15 April 2011

This review is from: Top Trumps Specials 3D Horrible Histories (Toy)
If you are buying these because you love the current series on tv you'll find you don't recognise many of the characters and many favourites like Boudicca aren't there.

My daughter wanted horrible histories top trumps so I found them at a good price and was happy to buy. When it arrived it turns out the 3D software wasn't even working.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great travel game - and educational!, 28 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Top Trumps Specials 3D Horrible Histories (Toy)
A great combination - the playability of top trumps and the gory fun of horrible histories.
Fun for all the family, great for travel, holidays or wet days and evenings at home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great but Don't be fooled..., 2 Sep 2011
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Top Trumps Specials 3D Horrible Histories (Toy)
Horrible histories are always destined to be good and this is no exception but the 3D element isn't as good. the cards themselves are not 3D instead via a web camera on the official site a 3d image appears. I have not tried this myself as its probably to much trouble than its worth. Buying for Horrible Histories, yes for 3D no.

I received this product at Christmas, and was thrilled by the way it eggs on learning the past. It was also very fun, despite the odd inappropriate fact! Overall, there really is no complaints, as I also think Terry Dreary (the author of horrible histories)has done a fantastic job of letting children learn about the past, without racism, or false facts. A fun reading revolution.

5.0 out of 5 stars A ''Horrible'' gift., 11 Jan 2010

This review is from: Top Trumps Specials 3D Horrible Histories (Toy)
My eleven year old was delighted with these cards. They present facts in an interesting and fun way, with that competitive edge that boys so love. We watched the TV series and my son has many of the Horrible Histories books. Very good value.

1.0 out of 5 stars I don't normally leave reviews but this was so disappointing..., 26 Dec 2010
= Durability:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:2.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Top Trumps Specials 3D Horrible Histories (Toy)
We gave this to our son for Christmas; he's 6.

The 3D part is very poor; having installed it (which I suppose did work first time), it asked 5 questions and then basically went into an advert for he Horrible Histories stage show. That was it!

I felt ripped off, to be frank!
