Great idea, but cut corners
on 23 March 2014
If I'd bought this boys version first I'd have given it 5 stars. We got the Treasure Hunt for Girls last year and the kids (a boy and a girl, 3 and 2) just love it. So I bought this version so they wouldn't fight over the book, but was disappointed to find some of the scenes are exactly the same as in the girls book. I really would expect them to all be different. It's not unreasonable to assume families might own both books. So the kids just skip past the pages they know from the other book, and we get less value for money (measured in peace and quiet).
But apart from that niggle it's a great book, and grows with the kids as you can have them spot colours, count recurring objects, find things that go 'Roarrr' etc. There's enough in there to keep a precocious 3 year old interested - learning about different dinosaurs, volcanos, lassoes, etc, while his 2 year old sister can just count all the little spiders.
