" A must for toy enthusiasts! I used this for a toy/game unit but I'm keeping it for my library collection. The author/illustrator interviews are interesting, too. " said.

" Great book for kids 10+ and I definitely recommend it for toy enthusiasts and anyone interested in everything. " said.

" Good trivia and well written - this would be best for a fifth or sixth grade student who is a trivia fanatic. " said.

" Some may think that I am reading junior non-fiction in an attempt to breeze through my 2015 reading challenge. It was not the main reason I selected this book, as I do enjoy enjoy reading about the design and history of toys. Not a bad read, informative and engaging. " said.

" I thought the stories about the different toys were really fun. I kept interrupting my wife's reading to tell her something else I had learned. I could see reading chapters from this if I had extra time at the end of class or something. I think my students would find some of it interesting. " said.

" Interesting stories behind the most popular toys and games, both ancient and contemporary. Good read for the inquisitive child who loves obscure facts about everything. Trivial Pursuit is one of the games included in the anthology...Booklegger, grades 5-6 " said.

" A very readable and interesting book about the history of your favorite toys from Slinkies to GI Joe to Raggedy Anne. Each entry includes information about the toy throughout history and its inventor(s) if they are known. This is a great book for browsing and will appeal to kids who like to read books with trivia and facts. Cute cartoon illustrations are done by the incomparable Laurie Keller. " said.

" This is a great book for short informational passages that children (and adults!) will enjoy reading. Fun and interesting facts about many popular toys and games - both modern and classic. I would recommend this to teachers who are looking for good examples of informational text that are somewhat narrative. Could be a good mentor text for informational writing. " said.
