Esther, Haverfordwest

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
We bought this for our 13 month old son for christmas and he loves it. We haven't put it away yet. He enjoys playing with the balls and keys but especially the bell. Just being inside the dome makes him laugh...great for peek-a-boo! Our 5 yr old daughter plays with it too, nice for them to play together with a toy.
Bad points:
I is a bit flimsey in that the ball runs can be pulled off but that hasn't really mattered. It also takes up a bit of space but can be folded away (if you can be bothered)., The unlocking of the doors with the keys is too tricky for our son at the moment but again, it hasn't mattered as he'll grow into that bit...big sister helps out there! Overall a great buy.

Good points:
Keeps the little man engaged for hours and you can see him working out the keys in particular.
Bad points:
Fiddly to setup and some of the pieces come detached a little too easily. Overall I'd recommend it though despite these little glitches.

Paul , Batley

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
The Discovery Dome looks great and the little shoots for the balls are great, it's all colourful and entretaining and the kids like that it's a little tent as well.
Bad points:
I can't recommend this. The Discovery Dome is fiddly to put together and some of the parts fit together in more than one way which isn't clear until you've nearly finished building it. If you don't notice the parts will break. The ball shoots, of which there are many, continuely fall off when the kids are playing with them; they are very fiddly to put back on and after a minute or so they are off again. After a while you get fed-up of putting it back together and eventually the Discovery Dome doesn't get used anymore as it remains in peices. I considered gluing the ball shoots on but this would void my warranty and increase the possibility of them snapping altogether.
