    Id like to say thank you for helping to make our Christmas holiday fun. My boys love your cards. They are printed on good quality card. The graphics and colours are great. My oldest loves the Joker statement at the bottom. I can see these card getting well used over the coming weeks and months. As a home schooling parent I think theses are not only great fun but they are also a wonderful educational tool. I cannot wait to see what else you have in store for us in the future.

    The whole family loved Sports Heroes. I thought I’d be doomed because I know nothing about sports but I surprised us all by pulling out quite a bit of knowledge out the bag about some of the more familiar faces. The boys thought they would win hands down – very satisfyingly they didn’t know quite as much as they thought and learnt a lot too. It got quite competitive though…

    My son really loved the Sport heroes. It is a very high quality game and the whole family enjoyed it too. Great way to energise them and get them away from devices or TV too. Great combination of education and fun.
