To think this was tipped to be Christmas top toy. This toy is poorly made.

​To think that there used to be a Tracy Island so in demand it was almost impossible to find and people had to resort to papier mache, loo rolls and coffee cup lids!

It does get very mixed reviews and Argos customers seem happier than the Amazon customers with it..... lol X)
I remember back in the day when there was going to be a shortage of Tracy Islands, they were being sold for over £100 and I think it was Blue Peter or something which were showing you how to make your own.
I think it is probably worth the price in this deal..... but £60+ at some of the other retailers seems pushing it a bit for me.
I dunno.... I'm with the 'old skool' camp.... papier mache all the way, but kids are a bit more demanding perhaps these days....... and to be honest it does look pretty cool

Haha you beat me to it..... I took too long typing.... trying to get the word 'papier mache' right (the spell check doesn't like it) lol X)
I made a blue peter one back in the day. Bought one of these for xmas....wish i still had my home made one, much better workmanship. These are awful
good find op, heat added
my lad still plays with this but is a big fan of the new series too.
bargain this. i paid 60 at xmas. is a great toy and if put together right is very sturdy. my 2 boys havent wrecked it yet and that is saying something as many other toys have already failed
Yes, it is a bit much at RRP, but as said before, once put together right (allow a couple of hours including the stickers), it's fine. Not wrecked by my 5 year old.
cold can make it yourself for next to nothing http://cdn.images.express.co.uk/img/dynamic/20/590x/Anthea-Turner-597055.jpg
Hhhmhmmmm Anthea before she became OCD
This really is a great toy. I don't understand the bad reviews saying poor quality. My 4 year old is playing with it and it seems very sturdy and robust. Bit fiddly to put together but I think it's great.
