Where's Waldo? The Totally Essential Travel Collection
A Must Have For Waldo Fans!
This is by far my favorite Waldo edition! All seven books are bound in this travel sized book, perfect for long car rides, waiting in lines or air plane rides. Unlike Where's Waldo? The Magnificent Mini Boxed Set, the adventures aren't too small that you'd need assistance finding Waldo. Unfortunately, I still struggle with World of Waldos, Waldo: The Musical and World of Woofs. Those are easily the most difficult adventures to locate Waldo.
Other things I love about this edition:
1. The elastic bookmaker - This is one thing I wish the other editions had, but since this book is smaller, it works better in this format.
2. The sturdy, bendable cover - I love how this cover feels like a cross between a hardcover and paperback book. It could survive the love of a few kids and still maintain its practicality for flipping through the adventures.
3. Checklists: I was happy to see that the flip-out checklists were also included in this edition. The only thing is that the checklists only appear at the first adventure for each book. So, you'll have to flip back and forth to check off the found characters/items as you search. This works out better than having the checklists on each page. Otherwise, it would be too bulky.
Overall, if you are a Waldo fan, this edition is a must have.
