Review: Stripy Horse Board Books

Stripy Horse is back in his very own baby board books, and he's on the move. In these adorable books, Stripy is doing what tots love most – playing hide and seek, and keeping physically active, with a stack of fabulously fun things to do – like climbing, sliding, hopping, splashing and skating.

This is one horse who loves to have fun. In Off We Go, he’s flying high, belly flopping, jumping, bumping, smashing and crashing. Loving the use of onomatopoeia to amplify his actions.

In Hide and Seek, he’s trying to find his sausage dog friend. He’s searching high and low, in and out, in front, behind – in this very clever version of opposites.

Adorable illustrations in lollypop colours, with beautifully rhyming, deliciously toddler-friendly text, these books are one of my picks of the year for babies and tots.
