I bought this book for the figurines that came with it and was not disappointed.

They made a great addition to my magical, minature Christmas Nativity scene.

The book itself is short and simple. Geared toward children it has nice illustrations and brief descriptions of the different creatures and the cultures they represent.

Educational and light hearted fun, and you can actually spend a long time browsing the book; meditating on the different little stories.

The game that comes with it is kind of silly and the spinner didn't really work, but the rest of the package was so nice that I did not care. One especially nice feature is this collection emphasized the Magical creatures as opposed to the Monsters and Ogres of the companion set. Whereas both sets are quite nice, this collection contains a little more postive and "uplifting" imagery and is more suited to optimistic visualizations.

Note however, young boys would probably prefer the companion set of Monsters with the more traditionally fearsome, yet stylized images of horror and death.

First off, let me just say that Groovy Tube books are really cool. They include a book, a tube of little plastic figures that relate to the topic of the book, and some times even include a game to play with the figures. This book is no exception. The book describes a multitude of magical creatures such as mermaids, sirens, hippogriffs, kelpies, etc. It includes 15 creature toys and a game, Save the Selkie, with a game board, cards, and a spinner. My daughter (age 6) received this as a gift and couldn't be happier with it.
