Toppsta - Childrens Books – Reviews


16th November 2018


Our Toppsta reviewers Bella (age 7) and Leo (age 4) had a great time this half term with DK’s three boredom busting books – Unlock Your Imagination, Disney Ideas Book and LEGO Star Wars Ideas Book. Find out what their mum, Tanya, had to say about each book:

Disney Ideas Book
This is every Disney fan’s dream. It is packed full of ideas of things to make from all of the Disney movies. The pages are full of themes and easy instructions for what you need to do to make something. The best thing about this book is that we already had most of the items needed to make things! Great for keeping the kids entertained after watching a movie or even good for party ideas. 

LEGO Star Wars Ideas Book
If you have a little one who is Lego and Star Wars obsessed then this book is for you! Every page is crammed with characters and themes from Star Wars. The instructions are easy to follow as they are step by step but you do need to have the same shaped pieces to build the item. 

Unlock Your Imagination
I think this is our new go-to book for activities. Since we received the book we have used it every day. My kids loved the board games that are included (checkers/chess/snakes and ladders) and have now learnt how to play them. 

The book has over 250 activities that are laid out in a colourful manner. If you fancy making puppets, there’s a large section showing you how to make card/sock/spoon/finger/shadow puppets. There’s quizzes, slime making, obstacle courses and much more. I highly recommend this book for keeping the kids entertained as it really has entertained my two.
