4.0 out of 5 stars Fixes stuff quite well, 29 July 2011
This review is from: Sellotape Original Tape 24mm x 66m (Office Product)
I really cannot recommend this product highly enough.

Kenneth, my 8 year old son, was playing on the twins' swing a week last Tuesday. The twins are aged 3 & 4 (long story) and the swing is designed for children aged between 3 and 6. The frame which holds up the swing buckled and bent under Kenneth's weight. I should mention that he suffers from type 1 diabetes and there appears to be an effect on his thyroid, which has become increasingly less active over the past few years. The unit collapsed, trapping Kenneth firmly underneath. Fortunately I had taped the incident from the small window in the downstairs bathroom and, after carefully packaging the tape (Sellotape sealant, no less!) and sending it to FREEPOST YOU'VE BEEN FRAMED I dashed outside to rescue my meaty little angel.

What I found horrified me. The frame of the swing had completely snapped, plus Kennth had broken his pelvic bone in three different places. The roll of Sellotape which resides in the draw under the sink in the kitchen was a GODsend, thank GOD. I first used it to repair the swing - for damaged ironwork I would recommend 10 twists of the tape. I lifted the frame away from my beefy prince and then set about operating on him. We are unable to afford private medical insurance and I have a natural distrust of NHS staff (again this links back to my experience with the twins). I therefore felt it important to fix Kenneth myself. I used what was left of the roll (approximately 7 feet of tape) in patching him back together and, 10 days on, he's almost as good as new! The bleeding has largely subsided and his levels of pain seem to have fallen considerably. He's very quiet in fact!

I would thoroughly recommend this item to anybody with children and/or budget playground furniture.

Praise be, Carol Madgely.

Thank you my dear, you really are very kind. Apparently I won some alcohol in a competition! I myself do not drink but I should be pleased to donate it to our church fete. Fingers crossed the weather holds off! Last year Jonathan and Barbara Donaldson had their marrow display RUINED.

Warm regards, Carol x
