My son absolutely loves all things Ripley's! We took a trip to Niagara Falls at the end of the summer to celebrate my son and daughter's birthdays, and a trip to the Ripley's museum was a MUST. It's always fun and a little bit mind-blowing!
Now, under the Christmas tree, Matthew will find a copy of Ripley's Believe It or Not! Dare to Look! Annually, Ripley's puts out an edition of their best selling series - full of thousands of true, yet unbelievable facts, stories and hundreds of pictures. Matthew has one from a couple of years ago, and I often catch him flipping through the pages. A Ripley's Believe It or Not book never becomes tiring or boring.
In this edition of Ripley's Believe It or Not! is an free 3D Interactive book app. Readers can enjoy the pages of the book come to life, just by scanning with their smart phone. I am really impressed with this kind of technology within the pages of a book.
Examples of what is to be found within the pages of this entertaining book:
Kelvin Mercado's record-breaking feat of pinning 161 clothes pegs on his face
Farmer Hung and his traffic stopping heard of 5000 ducks
Oscar, the incredible traveling dog that has visited over 30 countries in the past three years
Ripley's Believe It or Not! Dare to Look is a great holiday gift for any age of curious, thrill seeker. Trust me, that it is the kind of gift which won't just be another book sitting on the shelf.
Ripley's Dare to Look is available at major bookstores and sellers for a cost of $32.95 Can/ $28.95 USA.
