A small, enticing, portable boxed set makes a gift-ready introduction to Waldo’s adventures for the younger crowd.

Finding Waldo is never easy. And now this diminutive collection of Waldo classics — the first mini-editions in paperback — would make the hunt downright maddening, were it not for the accompanying Waldo magnifier, official striped handle and all. Featured in this mesmerizing pursuit are five Waldo adventures:
Where’s Waldo? 
Where’s Waldo Now?
Where’s Waldo? The Fantastic Journey 
Where’s Waldo? The Wonder Book
Where’s Waldo? In Hollywood
So grab the magnifying glass — the super-hard search is on!

Veteran Waldo-Finders Will Be Pleased!

The best part about Waldo books is that they are so iconic. As much as I loved them in childhood, I love them even more as an adult, especially since I can now share the ultimate frustration of trying to find a certain character with my own kids.

I always get excited when I see a Waldo book being released. How many different ways can I find the characters? What new frustrations await me? In Where's Waldo? The Magnificent Mini Boxed Set, all the drawings are tiny and you get a cool magnifying glass! The difficulty level has definitely increased and I found myself having a little trouble locating Waldo even though these are the same scenarios from the previous editions.

I would recommend this edition for veteran Waldo finders, as younger children may get easily disheartened at not being able to find the characters as fast as they could with the other Waldo books. My 5-year-old in particular quickly gave up in her search on her own and only showed slightly more patience when I helped her. The magnifying glass, on the other hand, was a huge hit with my kids!

However, for those looking for more of a Waldo-finding challenge, this is a great book to get your neurons working! It's the perfect activity for a rainy day or if you are craving a bit of nostalgia.
