We bought this as a stocking-filler for our ten-year-old son. He's had more fun with this than with all his other toys. It's such a simple idea, but has kept him amused for hours. It's quite uncanny seeing a near-perfect 3D metal model of your son's face sitting on the mantelpiece!
One minor annoyance is that if you take an impression of something small, so that most of the pins are still sticking out at the back, you can't easily stand it up - the whole thing tends to overbalance and topple over backwards.
Purchased this as a gift, as my son had had one from sainsbury's and absolutely loved it. only opened box to check item as the box was squashed but found this one is such poor quality and reacts so slowly and unevenly to objects placed underneath in comparison, that felt I couldn't even give it as a gift and have purchased another one elsewhere. Would definitely not buy this one again, a waste of money!!
Received this item this evening. It arrived promptly, however it is VERY BADLY DAMAGED. The perspex is cracked in several places as is the black plastic which holds the pins in place. Some of the pins are bent. The only purpose this is item is fit for is for the bin. I should have paid more attention the other reviews which stated that this is NOT A GOOD PRODUCT. I bought it as a stocking filler for my son. Quite simply....it's crap, don't buy it.
really badly made. the first one we ordered was broken on arrival, so we complained and got a second, it had practically fallen to pieces in the box...it is also very very dangerous, as all of the pins went everywhere and if you have small children, they could pick up the pins and swallow them.
The product was obviously not made properly, and not checked before it went out for despatch, and this happened twice i would not recommend this.
