Princess Polly’s Big Surprise
A magnetic, interactive book to delight your preschooler.
Name of book:
Princess Polly’s Big Surprise


Where can I get it?

We like
This story is about Princess Polly who wakes up on her birthday and as she visits each one of her family members it appears they have forgotten. It finally ends with a  surprise birthday party where everyone is present.

Complete with a fold-out stage, the pages of the book become the backdrop and set the scene as each character is introduced. The characters themselves are hard cut-out’s which are attached to a magnetic strip allowing your child to move them across the stage.

With each page a new character is introduced.

This book encourages the imagination as long after you’ve read the story, I found my daughter playing with the characters making up her own story as she went along. She particularly liked that  “the book was pretty – and loved the princess and her crown the most!”

Age appropriate: 5 years

We don't like
The side pockets which store the characters tore after a couple of reads/plays.

Do prefer interactive books to story books?
