Coming up to my son's first Christmas it was kind of hard trying to think of things to buy him that would be worth the money. I also wanted something that would last. When I first saw it advertised in a Woolworths Christmas catalogue it was priced at over £300, am pretty sure it was something like £369, don't quote me on that though as it was over 3 yrs ago. Seeing that price I decided I wasn't willing to pay that sort of money for a Tv, so was rather pleased when my little boy's father said he would buy it for him, seen as it was his very first Christmas. He found it cheaper on Amazon; I think in the end he paid £160 for it. I have just looked and they are now quite reasonably priced at around £99.99.
The Tv came packed in a white box which had a black and white picture of the Tv on the front. It was safely packed inside between thick blocks of polystyrene.

First thing I had to do, was screw the feet onto the Tv, this was a little tricky as they kept cross threading, but once I had done it the Tv was ready to be used. Turning on & Tuning in was a very simple process, it took all of 10 minutes. Once that was done the Tv was ready to be used.
I was a bit weary before turning it on, as I was unsure that such a small screen could show a good picture, but it couldn't be clearer. Whether watching normal Tv or a DVD, the picture and sound is perfectly clear.
My son absolutely loves watching cartoons on his giraffe Tv, it has taken pride of place in his newly decorated toy room. Another good thing about this Tv is that the Giraffe outer covering can be removed, so can be easily cleaned.
We have had this Tv for 3 years this Christmas and it's still going strong. I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to buy something a child will truly love.
Hanspree also make a wide variety of other shaped Tv's, Elephants, Camels, Polar bears, Crabs, Footballs, Basket Ball's & many many more. These are just a few I can think of off the top of my head.
Thank you for taking the time to read my review x
