This one’s okay for a stocking filler and will keep High School Musical fans happy, but don’t expect great shakes in the quality stakes…

Initial thoughts: You get quite a lot for your money in this presentation box: a picture frame and an album. Surely a must for any fan of the teen TV sensation? Plus at just £5 it’s an ideal stocking filler.
We liked: On first impressions it went down a storm with our 8-year-old reviewer. She loved the fact that her swoony Troy Bolton was holding a bunch of flowers on the picture frame (so easily pleased!) and the photo album is small and compact “so I can take it to school in my book bag”.
Weren’t keen on: This isn’t something that’s going to last all the way to graduation. The photo frame is made of card – and not particularly robust. They could probably do a better job of making something sturdy on Art Attack. The finish leaves a lot to be desired and the stand on the back doesn’t look like it would make it past the turkey dinner on Christmas day. The album fares slightly better, but it’s still not exactly robust.
Overall: This one’s okay for a stocking filler and will keep High School Musical fans happy, but don’t expect great shakes in the quality stakes and I wouldn’t expect it to last for a particularly long time, either.
