    these ones are hard carboard so you cant rip them, they are really nice books, plus they double up as a floor puzzle coz on the back of each one there is a picture, they are shaped to lock in to each other like a jigsaw if you get what i mean.

    I love them

    I would get them! We've got ella the pete rrabbit collection which is £85 paying in bits though! dont let her loose with these thoguh all her other books are ripped! Ella is a book worm too, we must have spent a fortune on books she has so many, I think there worth the money though great for their development!

    Jack has this set, still wrapped up though at the moment LOL
    It is a lovely set to keep and i like it as its not just stories it learning them as well.
    Emily has the Peter Rabbit collection in the box
    I honestly don't think blokes see books in the same way as us, i have hundreds in boxes in the attic and it drives Ant mad!!

    *Jase stop being tight*

    what i thought too, if we spend 85 quid on books i'd rather get lot of differant ones aswell

    its got nowt to do with being tight(it is alot of money though) i have saved books for the kids to read in the future that are in the loft. much to her distain. so your utterly wrong in your assumption :p

    i think he'd wreck them like he's starting to do to the ones we have of the set at the mo. like i said i'd prefer lots of differant sorts too, he'd have a more varied collection that way :)

    Your right it is a lot of money i apologise for calling you tight:p, but saying that i think it is a great collection to save, he''ll get years of differant learning from them

    Please forgive me for making such a rash assumption against you Jase
    I bow down to you and your loft full of books

    Sorry to say my kids won't read mine for a long time as they would scare the hell out them lol

    i agree its alot of money for 1 set of books, alana does have the beatrix potter box set but it was a pressie. I want to buy alana lots of books but as kids go through phases of which toy is best etc i rather have a selection rather then just Noddy.

    sorry if it come across as being blunt, i just meant like kids seem to change with is the fav character. well i know i did when i was little lol

    I think they are a bit over priced but then again i tend to get ewan books for car boot sales, then i dont worry about him wrecking them, he loves looking at books and reading.

    I'd keep a look on ebay or even have a look on amazon they might have the same cheaper.
