Very happy with all I ordered except 2 items.

Most of the stuff that I bought was for party bags for my daughters 5th birthday and everything was great for that except for 1 item, the jumbo bug jump ups. None of the ones in my own kids party bags worked and on asking friends they said that their children were disappointed with theirs too. As for the gummed shapes I bought what a huge disappointment. I bought these as I had happy memories of using them when I was a child. I was so excited when they arrived and saved them for when we went to visit my 92 year old gran. I thought it would be something that would keep them occupied for hours... OK at least half an hour. Imagine my disappointment and my children's when we realised that you had to peel apart the shapes before you could lick and stick them down. However, most of the shapes took an adult at least 2-3mins to peel them apart and the children soon lost interest with them. I tried using them again when I had friends round to visit with their children and we had exactly the same difficulty with the stars being virtually impossible to separate and the children losing interest very quickly. My friends thought the same as I did about the shapes. I will persevere with them as the children get older or may even use them with my year 6 children at school and see what they think. I remember, as I have mentioned earlier, using the gummed shapes and whilst some of them may have been stuck together they were easy to separate, unfortunately this was not the case this time.
