I have a 3 and 5 year old and we drove from the west coast to the East Coast this summer with my husband. When the kids got restless we pulled these out and they LOVED them. Sometimes they had a hard time thinking of the types of words we needed to fill in the blanks, so instead of asking for a noun (person, place or, thing) we would narrow down the possibilities for them by asking them to tell us something that falls under that category like a body part, animal, member of the family... and that helped make it easier for them They LOVED hearing the completed pages read back to them. We even got a few chuckles out of Daddy.

My 7, 8, and 9 year old love Mad Libs, all of them. We have one of the original from when I was a kid in the 1970's and 3 of the newer ones, and the kids love them all. We drive a LOT and use these as entertainment on the road, in restaurants, or stuck in line, at the mechanics, waiting to pick someone up from school...etc. I carry them in my purse with a pencil. Also, they are educational--my kids are experts at adjectives, adverbs, verbs, etc. Parents and grandparents also get involved in the fun.

Some of our best laughs on a twenty-one day road trip came from this book. We would fill in a Mad Lib when everyone was getting a bit bored with the day's driving, and it would make everyone laugh - adults and teenagers. Definitely a good choice for your road trip entertainment!

Great fun and good time-killer for road trips. As a kid, I remember Mad Libs from family road trips. I decided to order a couple for my kids to try on our last family trip to help entertain them on the drive. I was surprised at how much they liked the Mad Libs. We didn't get through all of the "stories" so we'll hold onto them for the next trip. Well worth the price to entertain the family while secretly making them use their brains.

We just returned from a long trip that involved 9 hours on 2 planes each way - and we loaded up on kids entertainment from books and movies on their Kindle, coloring books, puzzle books and this - Mad Libs on the Road! In retrospect I wish I had ditched the puzzle / coloring books and added less movies to the Kindle as Mad Libs was the biggest hit, in the most compact form with an educational component to boot. It also would have made back packs lighter!

It's simple, fun and the kids were deep in thought as their tried to come up with various nouns, pronouns, adjunctive words and so on; in order to compete each passage! I loved the fact that this was educational and particularly so for my soon to be First Grader who has not really covered these concepts yet! The whole family got involved and there was often a fit of giggles as the story was read!

Its true Old School; gets the kids unplugged from technology for a while and is clearly much loved. As we were at the rather basic airport on the way home another child came up to ask asking if we had purchased it there so he could buy one ...it's great to see kids ask for something other than an iPad . It's also really small and lightweight so you could really load up on these!

I intend on purchasing more from the series! My kids asked to play this over and over again; as anything electronic was overlooked! And that for me is priceless!

I bought this for my granddaughter who just finished 2nd grade for something to occupy her in the car. So she can read very well, but hasn't been introduced yet to nouns, adverbs, adjectives, etc. She looked at it and wasn't impressed.....looked too much like homework to her. I helped her complete the first sheet of "fill in the words", but she didn't really catch on until she used the words in the story below it.......THEN SHE LAUGHED SO MUCH SHE WAS ROLLING SIDE TO SIDE WITH EVERY WORD INSERTED. She loved it so much that she did 4 more stories on her own. This Mad Libs never made it out to the car, and she has asked to get more!! I'm sure she will be a jump ahead of others in the 3rd grade as she is now getting familiar with sentence structure while she writes each Mad Lib story. This grandma approves!

My son is addicted to Mad Libs. He is 11 years old, but still loves to create crazy and funny stories using the Mad Libs format. I bought this for our recent vacation, since our trip was 8 hours. My son loved playing this, and I think that it's a great way to reinforce his grammar skills and knowledge of adverbs, adjectives, etc. But if you forget there is a "refresher" page to let you know what word is being asked and what considers a noun, verb, etc. My son didn't finish the whole, and it kept him entertained along the way. We'll be using this again for our future road trip we have planned, which will likely finish the book.
