My 8 year old son was delighted to receive these as part of Christmas stocking but sadly they are very fragile and have been slowly losing teeth, fingers, noses, etc since the day we got them out of their boxes. It is a real shame as they look amazing but would have been so much better had they been made in a more durable material.
These are quite magnificent but the real surprise is how big some of them are. A friend's son (aged 10) is a huge fan of Ricky Gervais's books, so I thought these novelities would be right up his street. Being made of resin, they are not designed to be thrown around, but the books appeal to older children so I don't think that's a problem. I frankly expected them all to be cracker-novelty sized, a bit like those Go Gos that kids are so keen on. A couple of them, however are simply huge so, when they all arrived, it was in something that felt like a small crate! Their sizes vary tremendously which adds to the...er...realism?
Anyway, he was over the moon. If kids like the books, they'll love these!
