Looks like a well equipped socket set from Lidl this Sunday. Large and small ratchets, universal joints, flexible extensions, spark sockets plus all the usual. Not much info on the website but looks like the larger ones go up to 32mm and the small up to 15mm I think, it's hard to see. Deep sockets up to 19mm. I assume it's a 1/4" and 1/2" fittings on the two ratchets.
Chrome-vanadium and S2 steel, in a 'practical storage case'
That's my last minute Crimbo present sorted.
Available from Sunday 17th December

I would buy the Lidl one if I was assured the quality was any better £23.99 delivered here delivered fast and free https://w…orc don't get me wrong I am a fan of Lidl goods but not going to pay more for an item if it has come out of the same factory.

bought this for my boy last year - really good kit for the money - six sided sockets / great for him to leave in the car
(better in my opinion to buy the halfords advanced if you can afford it though)
Good set for the money

Looks identical, highly unlikely to be a different source.

Good find on the ebay equivalent! Can I suggest ebay.co.uk/itm…381 as an alternative which for 70p more is parcelforce delivery vs yodel - I've had a nightmare recently with the latter and if you want this for Christmas I'd suggest this is a better bet.

Ebay vendors don't always use stated shipper, had hermes and yodel deliver when it stated royal mail.
I have to say that set looks different to me. Similar but definitely different. For example the ratchets are not angled and don’t look as sturdy with a much thinner shaft.

Good spot, yes they do look different.
I learnt the cheapie Aldi socket set I got for £14.95 a year or more ago was made in Germany much to my surprise and it's been superb to use ever since

No 'made in' on packaging, just the German address of Lidl hq, so I'd be 99.9% certain it's chinese.

Thanks for the research, Harley_Mick
Cold. Homebase has a better deal on for kits. This looks similar to the B&Q junk.
Crescent at homebase was better
