Gravesend GB
Old School Favourite
Lots of various shapes
Good rainy day activity
Not sure how long the cork board will last as fairly flimsy.
Pins would have been more ideal with storage pot that all fits in the box.

promotes co-ordination and imagination.
Boys like hammering nails in
needs supervision with the nails, especially if they drop on the floor.

My kids aged 5 and 2 really enjoyed playing with this together. My 5 yr old boy is very creative and this allowed him to create pictures in an unusual way.
wish it came with better storage for pins and small pieces.

London GB
Bought 4 boxes for kids in my reception class. Many fun creative afternoons are had when this is out!
Cork boards could be made a bit stronger as can easily be bent and cracked by kids.

Good toy for my son. He is 3 so did need help to begin with but this keeps him entertained for ages now. He loves making up pictures and using the little hammer.
