      To Melissa Mitchell. I too was curious about whether Australian residents were eligible. I checked with the Terms and Conditions and as far as I can tell, unless you live in Italy, you should be eligible. :)

      I recently just purchased 2 of her books actually, Maths made easy Key Stage 1 and 2. I homeschool my children and they aren't having a good time of maths, so I thought I'd get something extra to help them. I love the little gold stickers they get for finishing a page, it's such a good incentive. Now if only I could get a handle on maths so I could help my children more. Hmm, maybe I should order some of her books for myself. lol

      I laughed at the 70 year old comment by Sumner. When I saw this competition my mum said she always wanted these brain training games to help with dementia. Goodluck all :)

      Does this apply in Australia, or UK only? This would be great for my little boy. I have an ASD boy {He's 10 now} who had a DS, which is little brother {Also autistic} accidentally put through the washing machine. We've not been able to get him a new one yet.
