We got this on a recommendation from a friend and day one on a 2 hour drive it kept the kids (7), and us, fully occupied and tested. The brain teasers are great, the boxing one was a particular favourite for many reasons. It will suit any kids who can read with no upper age limit.
It came away with us for half term and was returned to day after day. The kids loved testing us on the challenges and jokes which made meal times and flights great fun and iPad free.
I bought this book for my 7 & 9 year old boys and it has been a great hit with them. In fact, it is the 'go to' book in the evening as they love challenging us with riddles and brain teasers. There are chapters that test how well you know people and the questions in them get some good chats going.
I initially was drawn to this book due to the 'unplugged' in the title as I was very keen to get my 9 year old having less screen time. It actually has had the knock on effect of us playing more board games and cards ourselves as it has shown that if fun games and interaction become part of the evening (rather than, I confess, watching TV) my kids are not as addicted to computers as I thought.
I think that it is the interactive nature of playing a game that may be the draw towards computer games for my guys, so the non-computer games in this book have provided a great alternative.
All in all a great idea and a super book. I hope that there are more like this coming down the track...
Have been looking for this kind of book for ages. Often these books have just one or two good puzzles or jokes but this is varied, interesting and consistently fun from start to finish. The kids and adults all had differing favourites. It's a kids book but it works for all ages. In fact the adults became the most animated when trying to solve the puzzles. I really liked it. Everyone is getting a copy for Christmas. Hope there is a Fun Unplugged 2
Fantastic book for all the family, my kids (8 & 11) just loved it as did we although the kids were better than their parents! Great for laughs, brain testing and fun, kids got a kick out of asking friends the riddles and teasers, I’d highly recommend for kids all the way up to adults, a super gift! It is amazing how much the kids liked it ,it is great fun for the family !!!😍
I bought this book for my 11 year old daughter and she loves it. Yes, it keeps her away from her tablet but it also helps her to think and use her brain as well as interact with others when she tries the stuff out. Really good book for kids and us grown ups have enjoyed it too!
Got this for my 10 year old and gave it to him as I dragged him away from his X-box. He was glued to it for hours! Loved the magic tricks, the fun facts and games. Makes me want more books like this for the kids! Highly recommend for all families. Fun for the kids to read, encourages great play and even some cool tricks for the adults too!
