My Zoo by Ellen Giggenbach

2 Nov

My Zoo by Ellen Giggenbach is a stunner of a playbook. Just look at this deliciousness:

It takes the concept of the press out and play book and mixes it with stunning contemporary illustration and design, and Templar Publishing’s incredibly high production values to create this:


Everything about this book oozes thought and quality. The paper art is innovative and gorgeous, the cover doubles up as a play board and there are brilliant inspiring ideas for play included. There are fun added details like admission tickets and a joey that slots into the kangaroo’s pouch. And, unlike most press out and play sets, it can be put together by a patient four year old. Hurrah.

I don’t usually put pictures of my daughter on this blog but this picture says more about how she feels about this book than I can write with words.


Well done, Templar. Another cracker!
