Dot-to-Dots That Will Blow Your Mind (& a Giveaway)

When I read through Dr. Toy’s top 100 best toys, I saw Monkeying Around’s Dot to Dot books. I wondered what could make a dot-to-dot book that different than any other dot-to-dot book – enough to win an award?

Dot to Dot Books for Big Kids

These aren’t your preschooler’s dot-to-dots.

They’re the coolest dot to dot pictures you’ll ever see designed by David Kalvitis. You can’t guess (or at least I can’t) what the picture will be until it’s done.

The books start out with a sizeable amount of numbers to connect, the lowest number of dots in Book 1 is 33, the highest number in Book 1 is 350. Which means these are for older kids — eight and up. (Terri at Monkeying Around said their books are very popular with senior citizens!)

Some puzzles even cover 2 pages.

Book 5 has a puzzle with 1365 dots!

Therapeutic Benefits

I spent a flight to Orlando doing The Greatest Dot-to-Dot! Adventure: Book 1. I’m telling you, it’s surprisingly relaxing and incredibly fun. I never would have thought . . .

Oh, and my kids like these dot-to-dots, too. JJ not as much as AJ because she’s younger (7 years old). AJ (10 years old) has her book open on the dining room table. She spends 10 – 20 minutes at a time on her puzzles, when she wants some down time. Then leaves it for later.

    We never tried dot-to-dot books with my daughter yet, because she is still learning her numbers, but I’m sure these books would be great to do with her when she is ready.

    These are great, Melissa! I printed the samples out right away for both my boys to do. Then my Mom called and I told her about them and she said “Oh, I used to love dot-to-dots!” so I printed 2 out for her and mailed them to her. Thanks!
