Ghost Story Box & Say Zoop! #PlayTestShare Giveaway


Fall is just around the corner. (Literally. It starts tomorrow!) With it brings cooler weather and more time spent indoors. If you are looking for something to keep the kids entertained you will want to check out this selection of titles from Raincoast Books. Read on for your chance to win a title of your choice from the selection as well!



Ghost Story Box
Based on a unique and original format, this game contains 20 story-telling puzzle pieces printed on both sides. Each piece can be interchanged or flipped over to allow for all kinds of plot twists and turns, and there are even two alternative endings! When all the puzzle pieces are used, they stretch out to over 8-feet long to tell your own mega ghost story!



I knew my girls would love the Ghost Story Box as telling (silly) ghost stories is one of their favourite things to do. Keira couldn’t wait to get started putting together her won story together with the help of the puzzle pieces.



Since each of the 20 pieces is double sided there are endless stories that can be told with the aid of the Ghost Story Box. Your child can tell a different story everytime they pull this out to play with!






Say Zoop!

The newest book from Herve Tullet magically responds with bursts of color and moving shapes, empowering children by letting their imaginations liberate and direct each page’s reaction. Tullet’s books define the genre of participatory bookmaking, encouraging readers to explore and interact with the physical book in all its dimensions. The reward is tremendous: a journey of whimsy and sheer fun that extends well beyond the book’s pages.




Say Zoop! by Henre Tullet is a new favourite for the girls from the same author that brought us Press Here and Mix it Up! Keira immediately recognised the style of book and was very excited to read it together.




The girls were full of giggles and excitement as we read through the book together.  The book requires participation and interaction which really engages young kids and gets them excited about reading.

Featuring twelve double-sided uniquely die-cut pieces by artist Junzo Terada, this fun puzzle offers (nearly) endless combinations, providing hours of entertainment.

Donner Dinner Party
Who’s safe when there are cannibals hiding among you? That’s the question at the heart of this fast-paced game of social deduction in which cannibals and pioneers face off in a fight for survival. Set in the winter of 1846, players are members of the ill-fated Donner Party wagon train, stranded atop a mountain with no food. Rowdy, outrageous, and full of deception, this party game packs a delightfully wicked twist!
