Lovely idea, trashy contents
on 11 July 2012
We purchased two of these for my daughters primary school teachers as from the description we thought it would be a really sweet thing. The little card attached is sentimental and to be honest could be a little emotional, anyway from the image and description we thought great, this and a bunch of flowers or box of chocs - job done!
The package arrived very, very quickly but is also very small. Now, it doesn't need to be big I know but the description doesn't say anything about an Argos size pencil or cut down felt tips! The card on the outside of the little voile bag is in fact shiny paper, not card. The packet of seeds isn't a packet but another bit of shiny paper with a seed impregnated felt heart crudely stapled to the back, and stapled in such a way that the space on the seed card for "to" and "from" cannot be accessed, the marbles - they're okay but then a marble is a marble! The gold nugget (no I didn't expect it to be gold) but this is a gold painted marble and isn't even nugget shaped! The stretchy man probably came out of a Christmas cracker, the candle is a night light, the rubber is very small - you get the impression I am sure.
To sum it up, this really is a very sweet idea but unfortunately the contents are incredibly poor. I paid £13 for two (including P&P) and I bet that each bag cost no more than £1 to make and its true value cannot possibly exceed £2. Unfortunately we have another company "on the make" in what they know is a growing market.
I will keep the product but will have to use it instead of a thank you card and couple it with a very nice present.
In short, a lovely (no fantastic) idea but unfortunately the components that make this up are nothing short of 100% trash!
