I haven't come across these before but they are great fun. The idea is to read the story together and as you do you can build the princess float that is needed. The book and all the 'bits' required are included so no hunting for glue or scissors to complete it. This alone is a fab idea!
Megs and I took turns to read a page each and then Megs and Ben worked together to build each part. It was really simple to do. Each instruction is clear and simple and shows which parts are needed.
Ben particularly enjoyed putting it together and as it is aimed at 4 to 9 year olds he could do it pretty much by himself. His only request was 'there aren't any boys' which is true but as I explained to him building and parades are for everyone.
At the end of the story there are other things that can be made using exactly the same materials which Ben had a go at and was very pleased with himself that he could do it.
We would definitely recommend this for anyone who is practical and creative and likes building things.
Ben is already asking to get another one!!!
