On opening the box, I was a bit surprised to find that 90 percent of its volume is air; presumably Galt felt that more efficient packaging would look less impressive on the shop shelf! There is also an annoying quantity of sellotape to overcome in order to separate and open the various polythene bags.

But once all the packaging has been stripped away, you are left with a very nice picture-making set, that creates impressive-looking shiny pictures relatively easily. My three-year-olds loved the stickers, which require no dexterity, but struggled a bit with the main pictures. I had to get the backing paper started in most instances, before they could remove it completely and apply a foil colour. The recommended age is six plus, for which this should be fine. That said, even as an adult, I found it tricky to avoid damaging the narrow black edges that define the boundaries on some of the pictures, when removing the adjoining backing patches.

The resulting pictures are gaudy but impressive. My children were very pleased.

We had the ideal chance to bench-test this – a caravan holiday with our grand-daughters, aged 7 and 11. They both enjoyed trying out the kit, but we found a few drawbacks.

The view from the 11 year old, who has done lots of craft kits in the past: “The colours and patterns are very good, so the pictures you make are lovely, but the instructions could be clearer, and you end up with several messy bits of paper” (she meant the offcuts). She conceded that she was at the top of the target age group (6 to 11), but we agreed overall with her.

As grandparents, having done several craft kits with two generations, we noticed that this one didn’t keep their attention for very long compared with some other Galt kits (though the 7 year old was a bit more interested, probably because of the novelty value); I’m a little surprised that some reviewers have said it gave their children hours of fun.

These Galt craft kits are well thought out and would make an ideal present, or might be a good idea to get in stock in preparation for the long school summer holidays. This kit is easy for children of 6 and over to use without adult intervention. There is plenty to do, and the sparkly foil pictures give a pleasing end result without the need for messy glue etc. This would be a great idea to take to keep a child occupied on a long flight for example, and my three children all enjoyed being creative with this.

This is good fun. You peel back the yellow areas on the sheets to expose the sticker adhesive, then press it on the foil sheets. Nice effects can be gained by not sticking the foil on flat, or by pressing down hard, so that then still-exposed sticker area can then take a second colour.

There are lots of blank sheets to create your own pictures- this needs a scalpel and some skill, or alternatively just cut out shapes then peel off the yellow paper.

The effect is a bit like stained glass kits. There's lots of variety in the provided pictures, from space to air balloons and animals. The foil sheets are thin, but can make nice paper for other crafts- jewels for crowns etc. There are seven solid colours, and lots of the nice rainbow foil sheets.

If I was being picky, I'd say it was hard to rub foil into the corners of pictures, but maybe that's my arts & crafts limitations rather than a problem with the product.

A cheerful and fun activity that amused our 2-year-old very nicely.

This is an interesting arts and crafts toy. Basically, you're given pictures on sticky card, and you peel off the parts of the picture bit by bit and apply the bits of coloured foil on top. What happens is the foil comes off onto the sticky bit of the picture that you have peeled off, so you can create multi-coloured pictures.

My kids found it really absorbing, and created lots of pictures. Of course, that meant lots of mess because of all the bits of paper that had to be peeled off and discarded, and also the pieces of foil floating around everywhere. Unfortunately, that only lasted for an hour or so, after which they got bored and decided to do other things. Since then the pack of foil and sticky pictures has not been touched at all. If I put the pack away in a cupboard for a few months they might be interested again, but who knows?

In short, it is fun but it doesn't last long.

Really simple and effective. You get a selection of picture cards and stickers, pre-printed with pictures on, and to create the effect, you just peel off the top layer from the section you are working on, to expose a sticky layer. Then choose your foil, there are 40 foil sheets provided, place the foil over your exposed section, rub with your finger, and when you then lift the foil away, the section you rubbed has transferred onto the picture.
Really simple to do, no mess and my nieces were able to create some lovely effects.
As well as the 12 pictures, there are 25 stickers you can make, and these proved to be the most popular, as they were then able to use these to decorate all manner of things.
Will be buying more for presents!!
