My son Rafael loves this book! It is supposed to be a book for travelling but Rafael wants to read it in the house, too! It is full of fun games, quizzes, riddles etc. He loved looking through it and reading aloud parts of it. He especially liked finding out all of our alter ego names! The book is beautifully laid out with all matching colours throughout. Its very visually pleasing and inviting, you want to look through it! Its a great book and does what it says on the tin - busts boredom!

My sister and me found this book great fun and was lovely for sharing. We have picked it up and had fun with it throughout the holidays.
Our favourite bit was the magic and we still cant work out why it worked each time!!

Me and my daughters really like this book! With over a hundred pages - with all kinds of activities there should be something for everyone.
I think everyone should have it at home as  it's a great collections of all kinds of games. Lots of them were new to me as well and I really enjoyed to play them with my kids. I think that some games are not really suitable for traveling in the car but still can be used when you have a break  We really like the part with jokes - kids were laughing really loudly!!! Lots of ideas, lovely illustrations cause that you really  like to look for a new game to play every day. 
I highly recommend this book to children aged 6+

This is a brilliant book to keep in the glove box of your car, take on long plane / train journeys. It's packed full of games that children and adults can play either on their own or together.  For example there are classic games in the book like Ludo, Draughts and Nine Men's Morris to play (they suggest using coins as the counters).  Ideas such as 'Alphabet lists', 'Remember, remember' and 'Keys, please' involve using the page in the book to play the game but need no counters.  Games that involve looking out of a window such as 'Road trip bingo' (loved this one!), 'Star cars' and 'I spy' (but with six variations of the game!) are great! My children particularly liked the maths related games in the book, 'How many rectangles' really got them talking! This book has 124 ideas to keep boredom at bay - it's definitely worth the money! Brilliant for boys and girls from 5+ to adult!

This book has been a life saver on our holiday. We had various quite long drives and this gave Caitlin lots of ideas for games that we could all play or she could play by herself. It meant that she wasn't permanently glued to her iPad! 
It is clever as, although some games require dice, there are pictures of dice on each page corner so you can just pick a page instead of having to roll a dice (which would inevitably get lost in the car!)
There was never a time when Caitlin could say 'I'm bored'!

What a fun book, every page had something interesting and fun to do. I used the book with my brother and mum and dad when we were travelling on holiday. You could also play at home. Our family favourite had to be the tongue twisters, we were laughing so much. There are memory games, bingo with objects instead of numbers and quiz questions. 

I don't say I was bored once!

Wow, this is  a great book! What a fantastic tool for your holiday to keep the kids entertained, whether it be in the car or on holiday. Never mind the kids, I found loads to keep myself entertained in this little gem - although I'm embarrased to say I was a little stumped by some of the riddles (had to look at the answers (!!)

My son was more than enterained for our car journey, getting us to say the Tongue Twister challenges, completing wordsearches and mazes, solving logic puzzles, looking at the optical illusions. When we got to camp we also used pebbles and seashells to play the ludo board game and some of the other board games in the book (we had a dice with us).
My family would recommend this book and I'd buy it as a gift for my nieces and nephews for a going away on holiday gift. Great book./

There are a good mix of car games with a few news ones to try. You get word searches, I spy and memory games, but also games to use your imagination.  Some of the games don't seem suited for a car where you need counters and dice which can go missing

Jacob Ludwig Carl Grimm and brother Wilhelm Carl published their first collection of folk and fairy tales...
