Review:  Wally and his friends are jetting off to outer space and you can join them in this great activity book. Just like the traditional Where’s Wally books, there’s plenty of things to find and search for and all the regular Wally cast are there but this book is a little different as it’s an activity book too.

Around the A4 size this is a great activity book that kids will love. There are plenty of puzzles and games and things do. All the activities are different to each other and there’s something that will suit everyone including mazes, spot the difference, games to play and colouring in. Every page has the typical Where’s Wally feel and there are lots of different things to spot. The start of the book introduces you to the regular characters and some of the things you should find for them along the way, but some of the pages themselves have additional things to spot.

The activities are great for kids and certainly a lot of the puzzles are too simple for adults to feel challenged but things like spot the difference and searching for Wally things can be enjoyed by all ages as the images themselves are very detailed and with that twist of humour that I just love with Where’s Wally.

There are solutions to some puzzles at the back along with a page of stickers. The stickers contain lots of different character which can be stuck anywhere you like, there’s even a giant big sticker of Wally himself in the middle.

This is a great book to get kids especially for those that really enjoy Where’s Wally and anything to do with space. The book may be a little thin for an activity book but there’s still lots to do with all the searching for little items which can take a lot of time, the price tag isn’t too steep for what you get.
