Recently released in June 2012, The Greatest Dot to Dot Adventure Book 1 adds another notable achievement to its growing list as Monkeying Around announces the newest Adventure book has been chosen as one of Dr. Toy’s 100 Best Children’s Products of 2012. The report created by Dr. Toy, Stevanne Auerbach, PhD, features information about 100 wonderful new toys and products that enhance play and learning by stimulating the imagination, engaging the player, have value and hold up over time.
“Children learn best through play,” says Dr. Auerbach, “and these smart new toys and products encourage children to maximize their potentials.”
The Greatest Dot to Dot Adventure Book 1 was carefully chosen as worthy of attention from among thousands of other products Dr. Toy has reviewed at toy fairs, through catalogs and many other sources. Using the criteria she has developed over many years, Dr. Toy measures children’s products on safety, age-appropriateness, design, durability, lasting play value, cultural and ethnic diversity, good transition from home to school, educational value, learning skills, creativity, improvement in the understanding of the community and the world, good value for price, and naturally fun.
The Greatest Dot to Dot Adventure Book 1, by David Kalvitis, is filled with creative dot to dot puzzles that challenge players as they follow an imaginative young boy searching for the missing pieces of a mysterious gift. Puzzle players will navigate puzzles and unearth secret clues to discover new puzzle styles and spectacular views. Kalvitis has raised the connect-the-dot bar even higher with his ‘Everest of Connect-the-Dots,’ a four-page foldout comprised of 2,600 dots making the book fun for both children and adults alike.
