Crisp, clear, loud, and a steal at under twelve quid. I've used similarly priced Denon, Creative and Sennheiser 'phones and these beat them all. Save yourself a couple of quid and buy the white ones. ;^D
Zoombinis: Maths Journey
I don't often write reviews, but had to echo the comments of the other reviewers, which were what prompted me to buy this game. My five-year-old daughter is already getting a great deal of enjoyment from it (with help from me), while also getting to grips with basic concepts of logic and problem solving. The graphics are utterly charming, despite their lack of sophistication when compared with more modern games, and the game-play is totally engrossing. As an alternative to the same-y, Flash-based games for younger children available throughout the web, I can't recommend this too highly.

My daughter (now four and a half) has found this book very appealing since the age of three , and it does make a change from straightforward stories.
My one criticism is with regard to the inclusion of both Dracula and Frankenstein's monster on two of the pages. Sure, they are drawn in a fairly innocuous cartoon style, but I still found it awkward explaining to a small child who/what they are, why Dracula has such long, pointed teeth and sleeps in a coffin ("You see, Lucy, he's actually undead and feasts on human blood by biting his victims' necks after flying into their rooms at night on his giant bat wings"), and why the monster has huge scars and bolts in its neck ("Well, Lucy, he's been assembled from bits of other dead bodies by a mad scientist, then reanimated by electricity; the scars on his head are where his creator opened up his skull to insert a different brain, and the bolts are to keep his head from falling off his neck.").
