Adam is beginning to show an interest in the moon and space. He seems fascinated by the concept of stars and different planets. So when Miles Kelly, an independent children’s publishers, asked us to review a Convertible book of our choosing, the Spaceship was the obvious decision.
Miles Kelly offers several Convertible Play Mat books. With a Fire Engine, Pirate Ship, Train, Tractor, Princess Carriage, Pink Car, Bulldozer, Four-Wheel Drive and School Bus there is something to suit every little ones taste. Retailed at £13.49 the Convertible Play Mat book is great value for money. The reason being there are three aspects to the book.
First the book can be turned into a 3D model. Using small velcro attachments the book fits easily together to form a spaceship. The model even includes the windscreen and the outside is fully decorated. Adam found it easy to get in and out of the Spaceship due to the handy door. There was plenty of room for Adam to fit inside and the book is perfect for encouraging imaginative play.
Second, the convertible book can be laid out flat and turned into a long play mat. Although we do not have many space related toys at the moment, Adam enjoyed using his cars along the space path passing planets, aliens and other rockets. The brilliant illustrations really bring the play mat to life.
Finally the Spaceship is a wonderful story that can be shared during both play time and story time. The adventure blasts you into space, landing on the moon and on to discovering Mars, Jupiter and Saturn.
Adam has thoroughly enjoyed playing with his convertible Spaceship. Although Adam prefers to use it as a play mat, I can imagine he will become more engrossed with the 3D Spaceship as his imaginative play improves.
The Spaceship Convertible book, along with the 9 other books in the series, is available from Miles Kelly.
