There was much to say in its favour, it was made of good quality card. It was printed on both sides, even the pieces which you would not see once the kit was assembled, and it was foiled.
I decided to make a simple paper box to send it in, it was being hand delivered* so the box did not have to be too sturdy. I also had to write my message to a Post-It and attach it to the underside of the train.
I am very tempted to pop another of the kits into my nephew's birthday present so he (or rather his mum) can experience the 'fun' of making one for himself!
Stay safe and well my crafting friends.
* Now we are 'staying home' and self-isolating, I will have to leave his card and present on the doorstep, ring the bell and walk away. The world has got very strange.
