I bought this, along with Christmas Carol Mad Libs, for my two boys, age 8 and 10. We brought them out on Thanksgiving after dinner and before dessert when everyone was too full to get up :) EVERYONE had a great time playing Mad Libs. Each boy got a turn to go around the table and ask each person in turn for the noun or verb or whatever was required, and then read back the story they created. We all loved it, and the rest of us were adults! I don't know how long we sat around playing but dessert ended up being served later than planned - no one wanted to stop. I will be purchasing more for this year's Thanksgiving. We're having more kids this year and each one will find a Mad Libs book at their place setting. We may not get dessert until midnight.
Mad libs were a little hard to do with my seven year old son, but he eventually got the hang of them. That being said, I've done better mad libs than these. Some of them were very strange and even when providing the prompted-for word type didn't make any sense. Still, we did have a few laughs with these.
My 10 year old daughter loves mad libs, and this didn't disappoint. She spends countless hours with her buddies making up silly stories, and the fact that it reinforces some english terminology and definitions is great. We challenge the kids to come up with new and unique words each time they play, which keeps them thinking. For instance, we will say that it can't be a word they've used in the last week. Well, of course we don't remember everything they said, but using a little adult confidence and memory we can usually quickly decide if they need to come up with something more unique of if the word passes muster.Good clean fun, that can last for significant time at parties, in the car, on a sleepover, or by themselves, we've always enjoyed these mad libs, and this one has been no exception.
Really fun for the whole family, we enjoyed adding these to our holiday activities. Good for a big group and fun to do it old school writing on paper - also good for all ages to have to come up with nouns, verbs, adverbs etc and KNOW WHAT THEY ARE lol! Even the littlest ones (3-4) can be coached on what answer to give on their own so they can be part of it, and they love the silly stories all the answers make.
Bought these for my kids stocking on Christmas. I love Mad Libs and I love that my kids love Mad Libs. The kids had the entire book filled out that day and they brought on many laughs, it was great to see them enjoying something that is also educational! I just love Mad Libs!
we did the entire book when family was over during the holidays.every one of us said that we don't remember when we laughed so hard or for so long.since then, i have placed my order for several other Mad Libs books.
This is a great gift for the kids. Get them away from the tablets, phones and video games and they will learn a bit about english. Its all fun putting in funny words and then reading back the completed story. I remember doing these with my friends when I was a young boy now I get to share these with my own kids.
I was surprised at how small these books are and how thin the pages are. I had pictured something a little more substantial for the price, but I know my Grandson will love them. There are several different subjects, I ordered the Christmas Fun and Kid Libs as a gift.
