Good clean fun!
Hi, I've just bought the retro pin art for my 75 year old cousin Jack's birthday! We've had one ourselves for many years and have had endless fun with it. It still looks as good as new, too. I can't imagine it could ever wear out. Jack was a bit bemused at first but soon got the hang of it as it was passed around the guests at his party, who found things to do with it that even we hadn't! Anyone buying this for themselves or as a gift won't be disappointed.
Average pin art set
The Retro Pin Art pin set I got is performing below expectations, as a few nails were bent and the overall condition of the pins feels very cheapish. The acrylic glass was scratched giving it an appearance that the whole product had been used by someone before for a while and then re-packaged. I played with one of this many years ago and the pins were staying in position more tightly (tighter tolerances). In this instance today, the pins move very freely and it is harder to keep a shape in my opinion.
Retro Pin Art - Let Battle Commence
I have always wanted a Retro Pin Art for myself, sadly I was never given one for either birthdays or christmas. This year my youngest daughter wrote this down on her Birthday list and how could I refuse. It arrived at work and I just had to see if I could have a go before she got it for her birthday. I carefully opened the box and left no indents, but the pins were neatly kept level with a white piece of card which would easily let you know it had been moved... so sadly I had to wait for days! Once opened, my daughter was playing with it and making all sorts of different pieces of art, and eventually so was I. You are only limited by your imagination as to what you can do with this. We have placed ours in the living room and you have to pass it on the way to the kitchen, so the ever changing artwork is good to admire.
If i could give it 6 stars, i would.
What else can i say? The prefect gift, especially for those who love art. It can be used in times of dire boredom, if you wanted to know what your face looks like in pin form, and can then be used as a picture to be put on a shelf, so that everybody can see your face. Contemporary, cool and constantly entertaining, dont forget to add it to your basket! (I think i've said enough)
