Banjo Robinson the Travelling Cat has taken another long journey, this time to Thailand! And the envelope is looking extra thick this month, I wonder why?
First the letter. I love how the style combines funny stories about his adventures and new friends he meets with interesting real information about the places he’s traveling. Little touches like describing some of the food and animals with mentioning the terrain, it’s a great little snapshot that kids will appreciate and learn from.
Letters are personalized, with names, addresses, pets, parents’ names, even favorite foods. Parents can also add their own PS though the website, which is particularly nice if they have any extra special mentions they want to add!
I can also mention the lovely writing paper. Every letter has a slightly different design which links into the location.
The little colouring sheet included also references Banjo’s stories and adventures, plus the little drawings are lovely. There’s also a sheet of stickers, for the map wallchart, the reply letter, and just for fun, including a personalised sticker!
And as for the reply, well, when someone writes to you, you write back!
Party of the joy of Banjo Robinson letters is for children to send a letter back. And in case you’re concerned about how they’ll reach him, the letters are mailed under the sofa to be collected by one of Banjos pals. And when parents discreetly remove them, they can keep the letters as a lovely souvenir of childhood.
As well as the letter, reply, and stickers/colouring, there are a couple of extra treats!
A city map, with a couple of little activities and extra bits of trivia, and a recipe card! I think this one looks delicious, I adore real lemonade, or rather limeade in this case!
