Tintin Gift Set
Reviewed by Michelle Wright
Tintin was always one of my favourite hero adventure characters when I was a child, so I was totally delighted when with Paramount Pictures, Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson brought Herge’s classic childhood character back to life, with the launch of The Adventures of Tintin movie in 2011.
Along with the movie came lots of Tintin memorabilia – clothing, collectibles and games… This review is on the Tintin game box, containing two sets of cards: playing cards and a pairs game.
This game box is of the upmost stunning quality. The product is presented with a card sleeve that sits over a tin ‘treasure chest’ style box. When opened, it reveals the two game boxes held in place in moulded black packaging giving a quality feel to this lovely gift.
Both game sets are boxed and wrapped, and are complete with detailed instructions.
The illustrations on the cards are in the newly animated style taken from the movie showing graphics of all the well-known Tintin villains and heroes including Snowy, Captain Haddock and Thomson and Thomson.
This is a fabulous gift and due to its outstanding quality in production and presentation, it’s one that is sure to be treasured for many years.
