Monkeying Around Dot to Dot Books Fun #GiftIdea



Hey neighbors!

Here is a fun gift idea for all ages.  Monkeying Around makes the most spectacular Dot to Dot books I have ever seen.  I am not talking your average run of the mill dot to dots, but some truly amazing dot to dots.



The easiest are probably the original The Greatest Dot to Dot Books (#1 - #4).   To me they seem to start out easy and slowly increase in difficulty.  Next up would be the Super Challenge Books (#5 - #8).  Then you have the Adventure Dot Books #1 and #2, these two are simply amazing to me.  I am always surprised by the detail in these dot to dot books!  They also carry smaller, Mini Travel Newspaper Books (#1 - #8).  I have not tried any of these, but I am sure the quality is the same as their other books.


Monkeying Around has just released their newest book the Adventure Dot Books #2, and I was given the opportunity to review it!  It just came in Monday and I have already jumped in and started some of the Dot to Dots.  As I stated earlier, these are not just simple dot to dots.  Many of these are quite intricate.  You need to pay attention and of course read the directions.  Some of them you go from dot to dot in numerical order stopping when you come to a star and then starting at the next number.  It doesn't sound too difficult until you realize we are talking about dot to dots that number 400 and more dots!  It is so much fun!  We brought ours on our trip with us to Chicago.  The only problem in doing dot to dots in the vehicle is you have to be on a reasonably smooth road! 



Some of the puzzles are a little different.  You have some that each dot has a word beside it and you need to connect the dots in alphabetical order.   Others are stars, circuits, crazy, symbols, etc.  Each page describes the puzzle and how to complete it.



Here are a couple of recommendations I have regarding the Monkeying Around Dot to Dot books: 1. Use a sharp pencil.  2. Have a small ruler on hand for those long lines.  Sometimes it is difficult to draw a straight line that is half a page long.  3. Purchase more than one so everyone can play at the same time.  Our first couple books we actually had to take turns sharing! Now we have enough that everyone can work in one at the same time.


I really believe these would make a GREAT gift for anyone who can count and follow instructions.  Make sure to add a couple to your gift buying!  You could also use colored pencils or perhaps crayons and color in your dot to dot picture.  They would look nice in a frame!
