It’s that time again – the Fall 2017 edition of #PlayTestShare . If you are not familiar with the program, it boils down to this: several bloggers and their families are sent various books and activities to test drive. We give you our honest opinion of them and then our readers have a chance to win something from the collection.
It’s like being a kid in a candy store, I tell you. How the other bloggers chose, I have no idea. I had to go with the dart at the dartboard theory. In the end, I finally settled on Star Wars Super Graphic and Make and Move Mega: Dinosaurs. Here’s what I have to say:
Star Wars Super Graphic
The world is obsessed with infographics. It’s a simple and clear way to convey a lot of information. For Star Wars afficionados, Super Graphic is one more way to keep track of all of the unusual facts and figures that make the movies so memorable.
Generations of people have loved Star Wars, not only for it’s incredible special effects, but also the quirky one-liners, unpredictable plot twists, and interesting costumes. With the help of Super Graphic, you can not only recite the entire opening crawl sequence, you tell people how many words are in each one. To give you a head start, I can tell you that The Force Awakens has 93 and Revenge of The Sith has only 81. Take that trivia nerds.
Make and Move Mega: Dinosaurs
The second activity we were sent is the Make and Move Mega: Dinosaurs paper dinosaurs kit. As someone who LOVED paper dolls as a kid, I need to remember to leave these for the kids to make.
These dinosaurs require no glue or scissors – each piece just punches out and the pieces then slot together. The Make and Move Mega series makes a great activity for road trips. The pieces do require a bit of patience to punch out carefully. I’d recommend it for kids 9 and up.
