I got this as a Christmas present for my daughter. I would say that it was her favorite gift. She was looking at and doing activities in it all day and most days during the break from school. It really inspires creativity. I think it's a great book and recommend it for everyone!

This book was a ton of fun for my ten year old son. He could not put it down and it even came in handy on a long car ride. The book brings out your imagination and can even become a group activity..."hey mom, you have some coffee or gum I can use?" My seven year old daughter was very jealous and she "helped" her brother with a few of the pages; until she begged us to get her one of her own. So, we did!

My teenage neice showed me her Wreck this Journal, and I fell in love. This is such a great tool for bringing out one's creativity, but also a definite "fun" thing... I feel it nurtures creativity and youthful thinking. I"m going to buy another one for a friend with two young boys, so they can get creative together.
