Initial thoughts: Seven-year-old boy + box of practical jokes = match made in Heaven. I cannot think of a more perfect ‘toy’ and Dan was chuckling away to himself as he read the back of the box: Whoopee cushion, vomit puddle, dog poo, fake wounds. Oh brother!

We liked: A big box of horrid tricks with 10, count them, 10 different props to fool your hapless victims. There does seem to be a lot for your money here, and as we open up and the trickery spills out it seems like a big hit. The dog poo went down a storm (no, I can’t believe I’m writing this!) with both daddy and grandma TOTALLY fooled!

We weren’t keen on: Some of the tricks are a bit rubbish. The vomit puddle looks like one of my daughter’s art works and the spilt nail varnish isn’t fooling anyone.

Overall: A brilliant idea with some great tricks in, but let down by a couple of items which are a bit rubbish really. My son does keep it stashed away under his bed now though as his secret hoard!
