Hands up if your kids (or dads) are obsessed with Cut The Rope and the antics of OmNom and his pals? In our house both Daddy E and Miss Roo seem to always be playing it and to be honest it’s pretty harmless and is a good puzzle solving skill app. So when the folks over at Vivid Toys offered to send us some Cut the Rope toys I knew that they’d go down well with both of them.
The release of the Cut the Rope toys coincides with the release of Zeptolab’s Cut the Rope: Time Travel, the sequel to its phenomenally successful Cut the Rope, a game which has been downloaded over 300 million times to date. The new game sees OmNom, the lovable monster, stumble upon a Time Travel Machine, which he then uses to go back in time and discover his roots, teaming up with his candy-chomping kin along the way. Well why not eh?
We were sent a selection of goodies including a joke book (the concept of jokes seems lost on Miss Roo although she did giggle at some of them), a plush OmNom who makes great Cut the Rope noises when you squeeze him, some of the little collectable figures that are very much in the style of Moshi Monsters (these retail at £1.99). One of the best items we were sent in the package were the Cut the Rope Super Doodle book and the Cut the Rope magnets which I grabbed to stick on the fridge for holding up the never ending supply of pre-school pictures.
Even though she can’t properly read yet Roo was keen to look at the joke book and comic book first; it has to be said the comic book has some pretty funny jokes in and the text is good. So for young readers I can see this being a great fun way of getting the kids to practice their reading without reading it with a lot of humour thrown in. The Joke book RRP is £4.99 and has 64 pages of fab jokes for young and old to enjoy !
The comic is on sale for £3.99 and comes out monthly , we were given the April issue which came with some fab stickers and a little cut the rope book and pen , which were a hit . Inside the comic is full of puzzles , posters, experiments, things to make and do as well as a competition page, and is great value overall. I like comics that are more than just stories and this has a really good mix.
The bumper sized doodle book costs a pocket money friendly £5.99. Admittedly at 4 years old Roo was too young to do a lot of the activities on her own in the book, we did do some together and she enjoyed the mazes and dot to dots the best. For anyone travelling with the kids this year this would be a fantastic activity book to keep the kids from getting bored and something that if you have siblings they can do together.
