You don’t need to leave your house to explore the city!

Kids can get out on the town from their own living rooms while learning vital storytelling skills with Octobo’s Big City Adventure Storybook from Thinker-Tinker.

Designed for kids ages 2-7, this interactive storybook boosts kids’ imaginations with different reading activities. Kids can identify items in the story, learn new words, and practice spelling as they dive into the Octobo adventures.

The hardcover book includes six reusable dry-erase cards with prompts related to the story. Each book also comes with access to a new audiobook app that kids can listen to while interacting with the story. Parents can connect the app to the Octobo plush robot companion (not included in the bundle) for even more prompts and activities.

Thinker-Tinker developed this storybook experience with the pandemic in mind as a way for kids to continue learning and exploring new surroundings while spending time at home, with little help needed from adults. The reusable cards and multiple activities create added play value to keep the fun going. 

The first batch of the sought-after storybook has already sold out on the Thinker-Tinker website, but it is currently still available on Amazon.
