Today I wanted to share some more fantastic publications from the fabulous Top That.
I’ve featured some of their Christmas titles here on the blog already. Now I wanted to share some others we were sent. All would be perfect for children’s stockings this Christmas.
The first book is that of the wonderful ‘Yappy Happy Dilly Dog‘ probably the most exciting book my toddler has ever had. Dilly Dog is a puppet. Simply put your hand inside the puppet and Dilly dog comes to life making this a truly exciting story for an almost 3 year old.
The story is fun and exciting and the puppet makes it that bit more engaging. I seriously don’t think I’ve ever seen Harley this engaged in a story… Ever. Its his favourite for sure. I highly recommend it to toddlers and Pre-schoolers.
The next book was for our Little man. At 12 years old Little man attends a special school for children with Autism and Aspergers. His choice of book is normally something that is based on fact as opposed to fiction. However, the book ‘Monster Mayhem Doodle Wars‘ is a book of a different kind, its a fantastic doodle book.
Little man has difficulty with drawing and colouring because of fine motor skills. However this book involves no colouring (not if you don’t want it to that is)! All that’s needed is for you to doodle. Little man has honestly really enjoyed doing just this… Doodling!
What’s awesome is there is no right or wrong way to doodle and this sits well with little man. His been doodling without any encouragement from me which is awesome.
Monster Mayhem is all about monsters competing in the monster games (the equivalent of our olympics)! The fact that it includes a section on wrestling made it all the more appealing for my wrestling obsessed son.
This book isn’t thin and flimsy. There are almost 100 pages to doodle on and will keep kids busy for months to come. Also included are a few sheets of colour in stickers. Of course the little man prefers to keep these colour free which is totally cool with me. Again I would highly recommend this book to children with a bit of inner creative flare. Its also another great idea to add to the list of toys and ideas for buying a child on the autism spectrum.
Lastly it was another doodle book that Alice was sent. ‘Popstar Doodles‘ is a real girly treat that Alice went loopy for. This awesome doodle book allows children to create outfits fit for pop stars and pop groups. Whether this be a hip hop group or a pop princess this book features them all. What’s more there are also a number of patterned pages included in this book. Kids can therefore cut out different patterns using them for the different outfit designs across the book.
Again like ‘Monster Mayhem’ this is not a flimsy book and again it is packed full of pages allowing lots of creativity to be unleashed.
I am honestly yet to be sent one book from ‘Top That’ that my children are even sightly not keen on.
