Parent Panel Review - Galt Brilliant Baskets

Price: £4.99

Available from:  James Galt 

Suitable from:  5+

Initial Reaction: I love the fact that all you need to make these baskets comes in the small box and it is a great price for a birthday present

Pros: I love toys and games that get children doing things and this was a fun and quick activity which help both my boys attention and the finished baskets are very nice indeed.

Cons:  The only con is the fact that finishing the baskets is quite hard for little fingers, especially as the raffia frays and you have to pop it through the holes twice, but saying that even Mini managed it with a little extra help from mummy.

Value for money?  This is superb value for money and would make an excellent gift for a birthday.  Even better you are left with three baskets, which would be great for Easter.  Also we had enough raffia left over to make another one and to craft with.

Overall Reaction:  Super unisex activity, which  is quick enough to hold even a short attention span.

  1. 3 baskets? Are they all the same size? If so, this might be a great Easter activity for my 3 girls. If not, it's probably not worth the fight that would break out!
