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.

Both my children love this! Girl and boy! Entertainment for ages!
Would be better if the pins came in a little tub but not a problem I did that for them when they opened the package

Great for developing childrens fine motor skills and familiarisation with shapes. I work in an early years setting and have bought this product continually over the years.
The pins aren't sold separately so that when begin to disappear - as they will in a busy classroom - you have to purchase the whole product again

This is a brilliant product and has kept my 3 and 5 year old entertained for hours - not to mention me, my husband, grandparents and friends!
All the family have enjoyed making pictures and then starting again from scratch. Brilliant way to engage kids imagination and dexterity with the fiddly pins. I think it is brilliant.
