My boys bought themselves a 3d stadium each. I hoped as it was age 7 like them that they could build themselves. Unfortunately not cause they were really fiddly. It seemed many a night to finish them but gladly the finished result made it all worthwhile! They look great and would recommend to any footie fan :)
We bought Luke a football stadium kit of his favourite football team for his birthday . He absolutely loved it and couldn't wait to start to make it. He found it quite easy to put together and was delighted with the end result.
I have used the Happy Puzzle Co for 5 years or more. I find their products new and innovative, quite different from most High Street toy stores, usually purchasing gifts for Birthdays and Christmas, although I browse their catalogue on a regular basis. The games I have bought have always been of superior quality, long lasting and "kid-proof"! Their delivery service has never failed me. I would recommend the company to other parents and have recently introduced my daughters' school to them.
I bought one of the football stadiums and it was very impressive apart from the fact that there was one piece missing which I don't think was the happy puzzle company's fault. They replied to my complaint in good time and even sent a replacement, whilst also contacting me. However unfortunately I am still waiting for Oliver to get back to me regarding the 'steel rope'.
I have found the roller coaster difficult but absorbing. The plans and directions needed to be clearer and fuller. However this does encourage the builder to use their own inventiveness and skills. Excellent for making all ages especially the elderly use their minds.
Recently purchased a UK counties jigsaw puzzle. Turned out to be made of thin cardboard, very easy for a young child to break in attempting to complete. At £14.95 + p&p I would expect a wooden structure for an item designed for young children.
From a youth centre point of view - our centre has sessions for young people 10-17 yrs and we have found over the past few years that items ordered from the Happy Puzzle Company are great for getting young people to socialise and learn with each other. We have used models for various awards projects to support young people with achievement and have built up a fantastic display of the London venues which members are very proud of. We find all ages can do them and some parents have asked where we got them from to use as ideas for gifts etc. Our recent purchases were for a European project, a great way for young people to experience other countries.
I have purchased two football stadiums from this company and today I saw the one I bought for my 9 year old grandson made up. It is brilliant and very lifelike. He is over the moon with it. I have no hesitation in recommending this website and in fact one of my friends has already purchased from it. I would definitely use again.
I can recommend these products as I've bought them for use in a secondary school, as well as for family members. I've passed the catalogue on to my son as I'm sure there are lots of games and puzzles which will give hours of fun and stimulation to my grandchildren.
Never ordered from these people before, but it was a pleasure all round: from browsing their website, to placing an order (with a discount), to checkout, and finally speedy delivery in a very good packaging box! Thank you!
