We blogged about our fave TV show Kazoops back in August last year and let you know about the release of their fab music. We even got to visit their studios in Manly to see how the magic happens. As you can imagine, then we are super excited to announce that the merchandising is just about to start! YAY!
We have been patiently waiting and waiting and finally it is here. First up are the books, yes beautiful story books and activity-sticker books. Kazoops books will be available on shelves at Big W, Target and Dymocks in Australia on Monday 3rd July.
And yes you guessed it, the plush toys range will be released by TOMY this November, both in Australia and the UK! Yippee!!
But back to the fab books, and yes we may have a sneaky preview of them for you. Also if you keep reading, a chance to win a set of story and sticker-activity books too! Yippee.
Hudson has been testing out the activity books and story books all week and is loving going through all the fun things to do in each book as well as loving the stories in paperback books.
Penguin are releasing 2 storybooks this year, “I am Monty” and “The Night’s Alright”, both taken from actual episodes. The boys loved reading them as they remembered the episodes and even sang a-long for the “Just Imagine” part of the books. I liked that the books allowed discussions afterwards about whether we are all the same or unique in relation to our family as well as discussions about night time and the dark.
Next up was the Sticker Activity Book, this was probably the most fun for my preschooler as well stickers + preschooler =JOY! The stickers are great quality as are the books so they are easy to pull off and you can re-stick them if you make a mistake as the pages are soft and shiny.
They have incorporated a lot of great early learning activities for preschoolers into 16 pages with spot the difference, mix and match, a maze and colouring in. These activities are helping them to count, hold a pencil for colouring in as well as using their memory skills for the spot the difference.
It is great to see an educational element being incorporated into such a fun sticker book as the preschooler doesn’t even think that they are learning, just getting to know their Kazoops characters more.
The Activity book we received is a bumper edition with over 40 pages of activities, games, colouring in, drawing, counting, the odd one out, mazes, mix and match, join the dots and more. This is jam packed full of amazing fun and features all the Kazoops characters, not just Monty and Jimmy Jones. You get to colour in Gran, draw the dots on Stan, and they incorporate a lot of scenes from the show to spark the imagination and memory of Kazoops for the preschooler completing the book.
Even better all the books that are launching tomorrow, Monday 3rd July are seriously brilliant and would make great birthday gifts; storybooks are $9.99, sticker activity book is $6.99 and the large bumper activity book is $12.99!
