Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great idea, very poor quality stamps I bought this as a present for my son. After trying to use the "rubber stamps" he commented: " What a rip off!" He was right. The rubber stamps are not made of rubber but of a hard plastic that does not absorb ink so it cannot leave any imprint. The "ink" is by no means an ink used for stamps but you have no way of seeing this through the packed product. As we opened the box, two stamps were already in pieces (the glue did not hold them together) and the labels were half peeled off. Good idea of a product but don't disappoint a kid by giving it as a present.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A positive title, therefore an inviting title. I bought this for my sons 20 years ago. It gave them a concept about another way of writing. So this time I bought it for a friend's 6-year old daughter. She brought it to her Kindergarten's 'Toy Day' (Sweden), a day every month when the children can bring in a favourite toy and talk about it. In the midst of soft animals and bricks, my friend's daughter brought Fun with Hieroglyphics and held a short lecture on the Egyptians. The other kids spellbound. So, a great success for her.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Immediate hit!!!! I gifted this to my nine year old grandson. Nearly the second he opened it he was making messages and explaining ancient Egypt to his five year old brother. Great fun & a definite keeper.
