Any reviews on Highlight's Top Secret Adventure kits?


Recommended Posts

You start by putting together a jigsaw puzzle that explains the "crime." Then you have to go through the magazine of clues to rule out certain suspects and certain places, etc. They provide a DK type book on the country (not terribly in depth, but has all the answers for the logic/word/story problems in the magazine). My guidebook for Japan is 32 pages (including Index). Nice layout, glossy pics, not too much info on a page but not too little, either. It reads more like a narrative than an encyclopedia or "eyewitness" book (NO little boxes like Usborne). It's not terribly academic, but my ds9, dd11 and their friends from book club had a lot of fun with it for their end of year party last year. It's a fun intro to different countries. If you want to read it aloud even the youngers could play along.


Value for the money?? Well, if I could buy several at once and pay less S&H it would be better! I'm cheap enough I've made the olders use scratch paper and not write in the magazine so I could reuse it later with the youngers when they'll get more out of it.
