Looking forward to our 15 minutes of fame ;-)! Also looking forward to working out who's who from those who attended!

Man alive all that video stress and we didn't even feature! Hope I can delete the app and videos now as they are taking up lots of memory. envy

clux73 Thu 22-Nov-12 20:20:15

I was just thinking exactly the same Doogle!!

DD is so happy that her artwork made the video. They are both in it quite a bit (the 2 at the tube station and playing the game). I even caught a glimpse of the back of my head.

Good to see they could use some of the footage.
My son cast the traffic spell on the way in...
And my youngest is the blond boy in blue sweater trying to catch the fish flying around! grin

we also did not feature! Clearly my child is not cute enough (sob). Either that or my camera work needs attention....

So glad to read all these good reviews. My parents have bought it for DD for Christmas and I am sure she will love it.

Q1 Did you and your family enjoy the event? What was the best bit?

A1 We had a great time. The playstation guys were great and DD was really pleased she got to take part.

Q2 Thinking about the Wonderbook: Book of Spells game - what do you like most about it? What did your children like most about it?

A2 I really like that it is unisex and non violent and can be played together as a family.DD likes that she can play by herself.

Q3 Once you've had a chance to play the game as a family at home, please can you tell us how you found it - have you played together as a family much?

We've played together a few times and really enjoyed it.

Q4 Do you think Book of Spells would make a good Christmas present for children? If so, what age group do you think it appeals to most?

If I bought this for DDit would e very well received. The fact that it is tied in with Harry Potter makes it very desirable.

Q5 Has playing Wonderbook: Book of Spells changed your perception of PlayStation 3 at all? If so, how?

I thought Playstation was all Fifa and formula One. Will stop and look at the games a bit closer now that we hhave a PS3.

Just a question, DD says the controller isn't responding properly. I'll get DH to look on the weekend when he's home, but if it (or indeed any of the kit) is faulty, how do we go about replacing under warranty? Thanks.

Elf - I'll ask and get back to you...

Elfontheshelfiswatchingyou Wed 05-Dec-12 21:02:53

Thank you. I'll bump you up the good list. smile
