My 8yr old son received this as a birthday gift and LOVES LOVES LOVES it. The jokes are really easy to set up and use, which means not too much supervision is needed, which makes the jokes better for him as he can surprise people properly (rather than the condescending way adults usually react to a trick they've seen a child struggling to carry out). The quality of the product is pretty good and the items are fairly durable to the prolonged and repeated use of an 8 year old! These Mr Creepy sets are quite heavily TV advertised and I was a little cynical at how good it was going to be (you know the usual thing where adverts and reality are on different planets), I can honestly say I was pleasantly surprised and I would state that if this goes on your child's Christmas list it is worth getting. Now excuse me I have a whoopee cushion to sit on AGAIN!
