I've heard a lot about these kits and I have been wanting to have a play with one for quite a while. Well, today I ordered my first Noel Mignon kit. (-: So now I have to be patient for a couple of weeks while I wait for it to arrive. I'll give you a review once that happens. And I have my eyes on the Studio Calico kits as well. I think I may just have to splurge on one of those too, in the near future. If there is anybody out there who has played with either of these kit brands, would love to hear your feedback on them.
