Great ideas and much needed, but need an adult guide alongside,

Just a pity this arrived the week after a trip to Edinburgh!
This is a great resource, packed with things for kids in Edinburgh, and a very necessary addition to those of us trying to visit a town and still keep the kids happy. The authors have most certainly identified a gap in the market.
The one small drawback is that it only describes the kids activities and there is little or no information about the place it's recommending. Sometimes this is of no importance - for instance visiting the ice rink. Other times, such as playing children's games at Georgian House, it would be very nice to know what else the house offers and whether its worth struggling onto 2 buses to get there. So you really need a grown up book too, but then you've probably already got one if you are doing this kind of trip.
So an easy 5 stars, and can't wait to get back to Edinburgh to try it out.
