Dot-to-Dot for Adults?

Let me start by saying I’m reviewing a product provided by Media Masters Publicity. The review, however, is not influenced by them in any way and is totally my own.

Thunder Bay Press has published a book of dot-to-dots for adults. You remember dot-to-dots, right? You start at one and trace from number to number for a big reveal. Where’s Kitty? dot-to-dot is designed to reveal over 30 global locations visited by a cat.


I was excited to give it a try. So what did I think?


This is the dot-to-dot design on the cover

I gave it a try; I didn’t care for it.


Here’s how far I got before I gave up

While the idea sounded like fun, the reality for me was I found myself squinting to see the numbers, even with my glasses on. I really needed a magnifying glass, and who wants to do dot-to-dot with a magnifier?

Bottom line: While this might be enjoyable for a younger person, it’s not for anyone with any issue with limited vision.

What do you think?

  2. Thanks for your honest review! When I was a kid I used to LOVE “dot-to-dot”…………I wear glasses for reading and I find myself getting aggravated with People Magazine with some of their teeny-tiny type…….just looking at what you posted I think it would drive me crazy!

  3. Grumpy! I’ve got a magnifying glass but being one-handed……just no! Pass!

  4. I love the long complicated dot-to-dots but can’t see them either. I’ve found some mid-level books that are not for little kids but not this small either.

  5. I am into coloring books. The library has one program a month with a theme. It is a lot of fun. Dot to dot might be interesting once in a while.
