It’s nice to see them playing with something not electronic.
I got this for my almost 3 year old but my autistic 8 year old loves it as well as my 11 year old! She says it just so cute and I agree, I could sit and fidget with this book myself.
Just received this book today for my almost 3 year old. We are having a hard time keeping her still in restaurants, she wants to do what her older siblings do and that’s get up and move.
So far she likes it, our arrived missing the space ship for the astronaut page so she doesn’t have anything to do there but get frustrated with the extremely tiny buckle.
But she loves the cooking page, doctor page, building page, mail page and fire truck page.
The skate not so much, she loves the paint brush but has no interest in the paint buttons just yet.
My 8 year old autisic child on the other hand loves this book resulting in me having to order my big day so we have two books, hopefully that one comes with all it should for $34 I expected more.
Will update review once seller sends a new book with all parts.
While the recommended age is 3+, I bought this for my 15-month-old, thinking he would grow into it and could at least do the Velcro things for now. He loves these and begs to get them down whenever he notices them, but he is definitely a bit too young. The Velcro is quite strong and the pockets are tight (both good things in a product like this so pieces don’t get lost!) so you tend to need two hands and he just doesn’t have the dexterity for it yet. That said, he loves to try, and he points to things and has me do them for him. He’s already getting better at several of the skills needed, so it’s good fine-motor practice (although I’m honestly surprised he doesn’t get more frustrated by it.) So, it’s not the solo entertainment I had hoped quite yet, but he loves them and I believe will continue to love them. I also have to check the whole book every time I put it away to make sure the pieces made it back to their spots, which is a little cumbersome for now. A note on the pieces and little ones - if you have a little who constantly puts things in his/her mouth, consider waiting. Mine listens well and hasn’t had the urge to put these anywhere near his mouth (probably because the parts that come out are just felt so nothing to gum) but it could certainly be a choking hazard if you’ve got a little gummer. I also have a particularly attentive little, but a more age-appropriate busy book for his age would probably have more to do on each page.
We bought these for a flight because every toy we use on long car trips makes noise and we didn’t want to be murdered by our seat mates, and I think they will be great for that... as long as we can keep track of the pieces. We’ve already used them on a three-hour car trip that turned into a seven-hour car trip (thanks, blizzard) and they definitely saved us from meltdown territory. We did temporarily lose a piece that went over the side of the car seat. Since there is Velcro on the back of a lot of pieces, they’ll find creative spots to stick themselves in a car interior. :-|
The quality is very nice and well worth the price. We actually like it so much we have both quiet books (“when I grow up” and “my big day”)
My daughter initially wasn’t super into it when she was around 2 years old but now she’s 3 and it keeps her occupied for quite a while! She even chooses it over watching Daniel Tiger in the car (we only let her have screen time on long car rides so the fact that she picks this over screen time is amazing!) I can see it lasting a long time and her continuing to be interested in it since she likes it so much and still isn’t able to do some of the activities in it (buttons, lacing) Once she learns those things it will continue to keep her occupied in the future.
We actually lost a couple pieces to it and the company was very quick to respond and is sending some parts. What I didn’t know was that they now sell the spare parts for each book on Amazon as well so I don’t have to worry about it in the future.
These would be a very unique present for birthdays or holidays too!
