Angry Birds! They are forever so popular among children and even adults! Mr C used to spend hours playing Angry Birds on his smartphone and I had to download Star Wars Angry Birds for my son, Mr K to play on it. Last year, Top That Publishing become an official Angry Birds Publisher and has published a range of new Angry Birds creative play and book products. We were sent the Magnetic Mix-Up and Playground Ca-Cool Masks to review.
Inside the Ca-Cool Masks, there are eight to choose from and they are: Red, The Blues, Bubbles, Foreman Pig, Matilda, Chuck, Bomb and King Pig. Sticky pads for the nose and elastic are included in the book! Mr K wanted the Red while Ms C wanted The Blues. So while they waited for me to assemble the masks, they were playing with the magnetic mix-up.
This magnetic mix-up is a hardback book with magnetic features. There are 10 pages and you are able to create hundreds of mixed-up Angry Birds’ faces. The fun does not end there. Mr K had cut out an Angry Bird’s shaped paper and pasted them on the fridge. He then used the magnetic facial features to stick on it. The book and magnet are very well made, durable and colourful. They are not only popular amongst boys but also girls! Ms C was quite jealous as I had given the book to him and not her. But they do play nicely by sharing it equally.
It didn’t take me long to get the mask done. They are made from thin glossy card. It is very easy to pop out. On the front pages, there are explanations of how to build the masks and a description and facts about the individual birds. I like the locking tabs as they are unlike those normal tabs. For these locking tabs, once they are slotted in, just open up the tabs and it will secure the ends. They are a brilliant idea!
I think this mask book is great for anyone who are planning an Angry Bird birthday party theme. There are eight to be given out or they can be used in pretend play! Overall, both of my children love these books and enjoy playing with it. If you have any Angry Birds fans, do check them out!
Disclosure: I received these books from the publisher for free. However, they have not paid me for this review, and they do not exercise any editorial control over my review or anything else on this site.
