We all know of the Where’s Wally books. Whether that was when we were growing up or whilst introducing them to our little ones.
I remember, when I was younger, getting really excited to be the first one to find Wally on the page. They did make it hard sometimes, but it was a race to be the first one to find him!
There are now a range of new Where’s Wally activity books which combines the element of finding Wally with creative activities and puzzles to keep your children entertained for quite some time.
We were sent three of the new books to try out:
- Where’s Wally? Across Lands Activity Book – RRP £5.99
- Where’s Wally? In Outer Space Activity Book – RRP £5.99
- Where’s Wally? The Colouring Book – The ultimate colouring challenge – RRP £8.99
The Where’s Wally? Across Lands Activity Book sees Wally trek across ancient lands. Grab a pencil and visit ancient cities, caves and castles with Wally, and solve puzzles and play games along your journey. There are also 100+ stickers too.
The Where’s Wally? In Outer Space Activity Book see Wally go on an amazing adventure in outer space. There are plenty of puzzles and games which will keep children entertained and there are also over 100 stickers too.
The colouring in craze that is sweeping the country has also been hit by Where’s Wally. But, this is a whole different ball game I think. This colouring book is amazing. If your children (or even you!) love a challenge with your colouring in then this is it. Finding Wally in colour is a challenge sometimes, but when’s it’s black and white, it’s even harder. When I opened the first page and my son and I tried to find Wally, annoyingly, he found him first! 1-0 to him!
The scenes within the colouring book all need to be coloured in to really bring them to life. Throughout the book you also need to find Wally’s lost colouring pencils. So, there are challenges lots of pages, not just colouring in. This book is well worth it, as it will take quite some time to complete and the transformation from black and white pages to colour will be amazing.
These books are great value for money. The quality of the books mean they will last, as they are strong and will withstand little fidgety hands. Also they aren’t too thick, which may make it hard for smaller children to get involved with the books. There are hours and hours of fun to be had with these books. These would be great to take away on holiday and keep as rainy day activities. The books are aimed at children 8+, but my 7 year old loves it and my 5 year old gets involved too. These would still appeal to young teenagers, especially the colouring in, that would also appeal to adults!
These, and other, Where’s Wally activity books can be found online and in good book shops.
I’m going off to find Wally in one of the black and white colouring pages….I may be some time!!
