​Yeah I really don't get some of the changes. You can't say blackboard and apparently baa baa black sheep is now rainbow sheep. You actually get black sheep, I don't understand...

I don't have kids, am I allowed to buy them ?

Whiteboard is still called whiteboard?

No they are **** blackboards because they are painted black with black paint.

​Nah, unfortunately they say "chalkboard" in my kids school too. I actually had a debate with the headmistress about it.

See the use of the term "black spot" for a place where there are plenty of accidents is potentially offensive, but calling something black that actually is black, or white when it is white, is not offensive, it's just flipping descriptive!

Not that there's many blackboards or whiteboards left, they're mostly smart boards.

Anyway, these are ace for the price, just grabbed a couple. Heat!

Thanks OP.

I have a five year old and this little piggy no longer has roast beef...he now has roast leeks for fear of offending vegetarians. The black sheep thing has been stopped in a lot of schools for whatever reason. Personally thinks it's utterly ridiculous but it's happening

Are you out of your mind? Do you know what would happen to our planet? You might aswell just say, should I end all life on Earth?!

I'm thinking of posting a cracking deal on straight bananas. Discuss.

There are people surrounding your child singing baa baa black sheep 24/7? I think this is a case for social services

I looked on Amazon but couldn't find any for £2

why not just buy some chalkboard paint?
wilko.com/met….ds

I bought one of these about a year ago. As they are quite big, they are hard to align perfectly and it is difficult to realign. But worst of all is the chalk dust. All that dust goes somewhere - typically all over the floor and surrounding walls. If you really want something like this, I'd go for a whiteboard with markers rather than a chalkboard.

+ 99p postage

Just to remind people that I have purchased many small items from AliExpress. The Chinese equivalent of EBAY, simply massive in size. Always had good service, always tick the free delivery box to only show the free delivery items.

Two points to check:
Make sure any electrical items have UK plug, although a two to three pin adaptor is cheap enough. Check voltage, only USA voltage is different, but still check. If in doubt use the message service to vendor.

The biggest risk is items over £15 in value can in theory attract UK Customs duty. This has never been a problem for me, but I have never bought anything over £40 in value. I would not risk a smartphone. Split any order that might go over. No problem with sending lots of small items, all postage free. One oddity I found that four items were more expensive than two orders of two items. Probably just a glitch, but still check. No problem with paying by credit guard, site security is very good, and site translation, currency choice is amazing.

Be careful!!!!! If you order more than one the shipping comes up as $155 dollars. Don't order when drunk, you might get a nasty Paypal bill!!!

Except that's not true.

They actually sing Baa Baa Rainbow Sheep, Baa Baa Black Sheep, and lots of other things - linky link

It's a made up story.

Built off the back of a nursery school using an old nursery rhyme to encourage kids creatively to add in their own ideas and words.

It's political correctness not gone mad....

Well said. Seems to me some people want to believe that "you're not allowed to say ba ba black sheep" or "you can't call it a snowman" or "you can't celebrate Christmas because it offends Muslims" when really all of those are blatantly not true. They just want something to be offended about, which is pretty ironic really.

I used to deliver shopping for ASDA and was delivering to a nursery when I heard them singing Baa Baa Rainbow sheep and I said to them why are they saying Rainbow instead of Black and she said its so we don't sound racist. Like you said you can get a Black Sheep you can't get a Rainbow Sheep.

Would just like to second this - have bought loads of things from them with no problems whatsoever. A great way to save money on any little items you have the patience to wait 3-4 weeks for. The single biggest thing I ever ordered from them was a £60 soldering station, which luckily I wasn't asked to pay any duty on. Beyond that, I've bought things like game controllers, batteries, adapters, phone mounts and have even built my own drone with parts entirely sourced from here.

Cows don't jump over moons.

Dishes don't run away with spoons.

And giant anthropomorphic eggs called Humpty don't really sit on walls to have great falls.

The kids, believe it or not, know this.

Trust me. Their little minds won't be blown by "rainbow sheep".

Rainbow sheep doesn't even work. It has 2 syllables whereas black has 1. I hate the world

Mmmmm nothing better than filling your child's' lungs with chalk dust.

plus rainbow sheep = gay sheep?

My kids nursery sings baa baa woolly sheep.. At Christmas it was "Christmas sheep, have you any presents". Though I have always said chalkboard/pen board.
