Calling all mini-explorers and folks of mini-explorers! I’m giving away a super-duper prize perfect for pint-sized adventurers who love to travel!
I’ve teamed up with Lonely Planet to give away 2 brilliant backpacks, jam packed with educational and fun goodies to celebrate the launch of LP’s new and unmissable pop-up city books and activity series for kids.
With a cool world map design, these rucksacks make the ideal kids’ hand luggage, sturdy and well made, these bags will truly go the distance (get it?)!
Simply seriously gorgeous bags huh?!- and wait until you see inside.
Bursting with Lonely Planet pop-up books (£5.99 each) to introduce kids to three of the world’s greatest cities (and 3 of my all-time fave cities too): London, Paris and New York, they’re educational and fun too.
Who doesn’t like a pop-up book? No one, that’s who!
Beautifully illustrated and designed, these books allow your little one to jet off on a bedtime adventure, exploring the history and culture of these majestic metropoles in a fun and informative way.
Oliver’s been lucky enough to visit several countries already despite only being 6; his first trip was aged just 6 months, to Cyprus and he’s since visited a lot of Europe, the Med and even Jamaica last year, ensuring he’s definitely caught the travel bug.
Two cities he hasn’t visited however is Paris and New York, yet thanks to the power of literacy and a sprinkle of imagination these captivating pop-up books have now taken him up the Empire State Building and wandering through the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris.
Also included within the goodie bags are these super-cool Lonely Planet activity books which promise to make ‘are we there yet?’ questions a thing of the past!
This series of 3 books will keep kids entertained for hours with creative challenges and inventive games and include:
My Family Travel Map: A fold-out, fact-filled poster to complete
Put yourself on the map and turn your family’s journeys into a work of art with ‘My Family Travel Map’.
This giant map poster includes marker stickers to show where you live, where you’ve been and where you’d like to go, transport stickers to show how you arrived, creature stickers to highlight any wonderful wildlife you spotted while you were away as well as heart and star stickers to mark up those places that are particularly important to you.
Oliver blu-tacked the map to his bedroom wall and loved finding the countries he’s visited, proudly applying stickers to each country.
A wonderful, interactive way to familiarise children with maps while helping them with their reading, writing and maths too as children link names of countries with numbers, this get a huge thumbs up from us.
The 2nd book is-
My Travel Journal: Never forget an adventure
You can draw the view from your hotel window, create the ultimate holiday playlist or make the city skyline from your ticket stubs with ‘My Travel Journal’, the perfect memento for any excursion. Part holiday diary, part scrapbook, part sketchbook, ‘My Travel Journal’ is the ideal way for young travellers to record their holidays.
The 3rd book is-
Boredom Buster: Games for the road
Whether you’re travelling by car, by train or by plane, Boredom Buster is full of games that are perfect for the road.
With word games, board games, guessing games, counting games, trivia games, memory games and more, Boredom Buster will keep the children – and the whole family – entertained long after you reach your destination.
No props are necessary – everything you need for a journey full of fun is in this book.
