I bought this for my Dr Who fanatic younger sister as a birthday present and was very disappointed when I received it. I had just paid £30 for an unsatisfactory novelty. Arriving a day before her birthday, I had no time to send it back and was just hoping that she'd like it.
The book was very small (as stated), arriving in tacky Toys R Us style plastic packaging, which I made sure removed before giving. It was made of very cheap feeling 'leather style' with a big and brash "Made in China" white stamp on the inside cover - classy. The ring was also a very cheap hollow plastic thing which you would imagine getting out of a cracker.
The pages inside we're graphically pleasing - the handwriting and the illustrations were interesting and like the program, however, they were clearly printed (as stated), looking like something I could have done on my own printer at home and a bit of Photoshop.
For a toy, for a young child, maybe it would be passable - my sister didn't seem to mind these faults as much as me (at least not to my face) - but this is definitely not worth £30.
