My daughter loves the ‘10 little...’ series so I grabbed this to reward her for potty training. Poos = pirate stickers in our house and it’s doing a great job. She has many pirates and mermaids (and skeletons) up on her wall. She’s maybe a bit too young for the activities but the bright coloured stickers are worth the price of the book alone.
There is slightly more to this than the standard 20-page sticker book, this is 32 pages long, including one page for answers to some of the activities, followed by 4 pages of stickers. Probably my only niggle is that It doesn't specify which stickers should be used on which pages but in a way this is good, you / your child have to think a little bit harder about which sticker should be used - though most of the time it's reasonably obvious.
There are a huge variety of activities and as you might expect given the title, a lot of them involve counting. Activities include - a maze; counting activities (both as a main page activity and an add-on), dot-to-dots; solving clues; sticker pages; sums with stickers; spot-the-difference; dress the pirate; spot and count; drawing; sticker jigsaw; colouring; pattern solving and storytelling.
I think the recommended age range of 3-5 may be a little low for a couple of the activities - mainly the filling the gap in the story activity at the end of the book, where your child needs to add their own words to complete a story.
This would make a great combined present with the 10 Little Pirates Storybook, though you don't need to be familiar with the story to enjoy the sticker book. It would certainly pass the time on a rainy afternoon or long car journey. It's lovely quality and is one of the best value sticker books I've seen.
Our three-year old loves reading the Ten Little Pirates story book, so I knew the sticker activity book would go down well but I didn't appreciate it would go down quite so well. The little man didn't want to put it down until he'd completed each of the 30 pages and put all the stickers in the right place, which took a good hour and I think was probably a record for keeping his attention.
I'm sure the appeal comes from the beautiful artwork and colourful characters, together with the fun and engaging activities. The activities are designed to aid counting and matching, there's even a jigsaw, maze and pages for colouring-in. Some of the activities were a bit advanced and required parental help, but I think that added to the enjoyment...for both of us.
With 2 grandchildren around during the school holidays this sticker book is very good for keeping them entertained. Two boys - 5 and 3 - around and they both enjoy sticker books. This more pages than some of the usual ones so the price isn't bad. They get different things out of these books with the 5 year old able to do most if not all of the activities while the 3 year old is happy sticking stickers wherever he wants! I wasn't aware of the story book however that now looks worth looking at. All in all a useful buy for keeping the youngsters entertained.
This is great fun the main problem is stopping the kids just grabbing the stickers at the back and putting them everywhere! Its basically page after page of different activities such as basic counting or finding different objects on a page. Its nice and varied but you really must do the tasks with the kids so they stick to what they are supposed to do on each page. The fact that its a sticker album makes it all the more fun and gets them into counting and finding things in a nice fun way.
The inevitable spin off to the ten little series - the books that have kept parents sane when the kids have stated “again!again!” at bedtime. Well, now that my little monster needs more things to keep her mind occupied then this book is excellent as it has got puzzles and games based on those crazy 10 pirate people. No brainier actually - if the child like the original then they will like this - pretty easy going and enjoyable. Recommend highly
My children have the 10 little pirates book plus all the others in the collection and this was perfect for a rainy day in the summer holidays. Having many stickers and drawings to colour in, they both played with this for a few hours with the only downside is the stickers are now all over the house on everything!
This little book would also be good if traveling with little ones as it keeps them busy for a while!
This sticker activity book is fun for kids aged 3 and above, and useful as an aid to learning numbers and counting. In terms of quality it's a little more involved than a kids' magazine, which reflects the price. The stickers are colourful. My 4 year old son enjoyed it. Once you've used the stickers, it's pretty much disposable.
This Ten Little Pirates themed activity book features activities such as dot-to-dot, colouring, counting, and lots of stickers. The activities are good fun and it is ideal for 4-5 year old children. My 5 year old thinks it is great - the activities are perhaps a little easy for him but he enjoys them all the same.
