My kids suddenly realized that March Break is mere days away. This fills them with limitless joy and energy. Energy they don’t always have when it is not Spring Break. Energy that needs to be channeled somewhere for well over a week so we don’t all go absolutely crazy. so, big thanks to Raincoast Books for inviting us to be part of #PlayTestShare group. They’ve asked for our opinion on a couple of products, so here they are.
The first of two items we were sent was a pack of NASA Space Playing Cards. Now, a deck of cards is just a deck of cards, right? Sure. Unless they feature incredble NASA photography. Then my friends, and only then, are they more than just playing cards.
In fact, these are such amazing cards that I cannot even show them to you. Not because the awesomeness of the photos would burn your retinas. No, I can’t show you because someone took them to school in his backpack to play cards with his buddies at school. So, stock photo it is then. And your vivid imaginations.
If it helps, each suit has a different space photograph and very Star Trek-esque font. There’s also a handy dandy metal travel tin. No more trying to jam all the playing cards back into a tattered cardboard box or endlessly searching for just the right sized elastic to hold everything together.
Birds of the World is actually a combination sticker/colourings/quiz book. And while it’s not a very big book in terms of number of pages (only 24 if you include the title page), it is about the size of a full sheet of paper. This gives you, I mean kids, lots of room to decorate elaborate scenes.
