thank you

come on now...seriously? carving pumpkins is a great opportunity to teach children about proper handling of real tools, why make them endure using some rubbish toy quality stuff? most people have the stuff lying around the house...all you need is a knife and at most a junior hacksaw blade if you are feeling seriously artistic.

Great price for a nice set - heated.

49p is worth it for the stencils - the tools are free then...

Really want a set of these. Gonn have a go at this:

I got one of these sets of tools about eight years ago, with a pumpkin. They might be "toys" but they work brilliantly. the handles are well shaped for easy cutting/carving, and they are made specifially for the job. My little set has been used on four pumpkins and is still going strong.

I would MUCH rather have my child using this much safer little set than sharp knives and tools around the house, particularly a younger child with not so good motor skills. "Proper" knife and tool skills are for when they're older I believe. Everyone is different though. I'm generally a person who believes in using what you have at home, and I would never have gone out and bought this little "carving kit" specifically, but since I got it with a pumpkin purhase, I used it and it's spot on.

The bloke who made it before got it off here. But u have to pay i'd imagine a Google search would turn up a free one somewhere.

Don't have a Home Bargains by me, but picked up a Supercooks pumpkin carving kit for 89p in B&M's

Thousands of stencils are free off the internet, i agree with the guy...children are not stupid enough to damage themselves with real tools if they are taught and supervised.

If anything using a real tool lowers the risk of injury, id rather try perform any form of carving/cutting/hollowing with a sharp blade than some plastic tat. If a child is old enough to handle a piece of plastic they are old enough to handle a bladed tool.

I agree that it is personal choice though and for 49p even if they are rubbish you can always finish it off with a stanley knife/real tool...worth a dabble.

Wow Are you serious?
If a child is old enough for Duplo, they are old enough for a Pen-Knife?

Plastic tat? they do have sharp blades on them and they are very well built... The 2 with sharp edges are better than my stanley blades and my mini haxsaw

None in Hartlepool, but the assistant said they had them last year and will likely have some in soon.

yes, you think giving a child a pen knife they are going to instantly turn it on themselves, seriously? children are a lot more intelligent than you appear to think. Supervision is key in all situations.

We never had pumpkins, we made do with turnips and put a candle in the middle!:(
