Review of Magoo Hippy Flowers Magnetic Car Tax Disc Holder
I was first drawn to this tax disc holder by the colourful design and it is certainly refreshing to see a unique spin on tax disc holders.
I bought this on Amazon and was very pleased with the usual level of service I have come to expect. Item arrived in a cardboard protected envelope next morning by Royal Mail.
The tax disc holder itself is as colourful as the product image, perhaps a lot brighter than the compressed Amazon image so I was delighted with the quality. The holder comes in two parts, a self-adhesive ring which sticks to the windscreen; which with a little care went on with no problems.
The design part has a nice heavy feel compared to the cheap paper foil magnetic holders which you see in Halfords etc. This is the genius part which holds the tax disc in place by magnetic force. No more fiddling about with cheap pvc holders which don't stick properly after the second use.
From the outside, the tax disc holder is nice and neat and the perforations on the tax disc are hidden which can look a little tatty so full marks there. Inside of course I have a nice bright tax disc which helps to personalise my car. If you are like me, the first thing you do with a new car is to remove the car dealers' advertisement stickers.
Overall this is a simple little holder which is easy to fit and makes that task of changing the disc over a lot easier. Lovely enough to give as gift and is well under my £10 rule!
Go buy one.
