While our younger children still very much believe that mummy and daddy know everything the older kids have (sadly) worked out that this is far from the truth. More and more often I have to admit that I don’t know the answers to all their questions (and with 5 kids there are loads of questions!) and we regularly turn to a dictionary, encyclopedia or Google to find the information they’re after. The twins love learning about interesting new things so these clever guides by Dr Karl Kruszelnicki are right up their alley:

Combining fun with facts Dr Karl’s Little Book of Dinos (RRP $12.99) is the ultimate gift for young dinosaur lovers. Filled with 150 pages of tongue twisting dinosaur names and cool ‘did-you-know’s, awesome games and puzzles, story writing, drawing exercises and much more you’ll become a dino expert in no-time. What a great boredom buster for rainy winter days, road trips and holidays!

Take your exploring to the next level with Dr Karl’s Little Book of Space (RRP $12.99), look further than the earth we live on and discover planets, stars, the sun and plenty of other milky way secrets. Space can be a concept that is hard to grasp for young minds, but thankfully Dr. Karl knows how to make things easier to understand and exciting to learn. These educational activity books are fantastic value for money and after all the activities are completed they make a handy reference guide.

Miles from Tomorrowland

As a 7-year old boy who is crazy about space it is no surprise that our son Tommie is terribly excited about the start of Disney Junior’s brand new animation Miles from Tomorrowland. The star of this futuristic children’s show is a young, adventurous boy called Miles Callisto who travels the galaxy and is never short of adventure. Together with his friends and a quirky rob-ostrich Miles explores the mysteries of outer space and you are invited to join the journey through the special Miles from Tomorrowland toy range by Tomy:

Maximum MilesMeasuring an impressive 10″ in size Maximum Miles (RRP $29.95, ages 3+) sure is ready for the big milky way. Not only does Maximum Miles come complete with his all his space must-haves (laserang, blastboard and removable space helmet), he really brings the show to life by lighting up when using his gear. To prove he knows his stuff Maximum Miles is able to speak 8 different sentences from the show.

Miles from Tomorrowland Exo-FlexWalking, driving, flying, when it comes to space travel Miles can always rely on his muli-functional Transforming Exo-Flex (RRP $29.95) to get him to his destination. With a simple flip, fold, slide or turn the large robotic suit transforms and changes for different modes of play. Is there a mysterious object blocking your space route? Don’t worry, Exo-Flex will help you achieve your mission by blasting obstacles out of the way with its special flash beams.
