I Spy Super Challenger!

  • Mar 24, 2007
Pros: More I Spy fun

Cons: Too bad there are no new pictures.

The Bottom Line: Need a challenge?

When I set out to buy a specific 9 I Spy books, I hadn’t intended on buying any of the challengers because I knew they simply rehashed pictures from previous books and added newer, harder riddles. But when buying in bulk from eBay, I had no choice but to get this book. I wasn’t too bothered though. Because of that now I can say I own every I Spy book (except maybe the Gold Challenger, but I don’t pay that any mind).

By working with children from second and third grades, Jean Marzollo asked them which objects would be hardest to find out of the pictures chosen. The pictures by Walter Wick were the ones that contained the most objects, so if you’ve foud everything before in these pictures, now you and/or your child should have a more difficult time – but that just means more time together and more fun poking around amidst all the playing cards, little plastic elephants, toy cars, and beads. In here you will find the following:

Flight of Fancy (from I Spy Fantasy)
Tiny Toys (from I Spy)
Chain Reaction (from I Spy Mystery)
City Blocks (from I Spy Fantasy)
Sihouettes (from I Spy)
Storybook Theatre (from I Spy School Days)
The Hidden Clue (from I Spy Mystery)
Stocking Stuffers (from I Spy Christmas)
Peanuts and Popcorn (from I Spy Funhouse)
1, 2, 3 (from I Spy School Days)
A Whale of a Tale (from I Spy Mystery)
Toys in the Attic (from I Spy)

Even more, just like any other I Spy book there are more riddles in the back for you to use in case you find everything from the riddles beneath the pictures. But are the riddles hard? You’ll have to use your brain a little more than you might think – find two ladders in Chain Reaction or two ducks – but remember they may not necessarily look the same despite what the riddle says (“a duck and its twin” they’re definitely not twins). Oh, and have fun with A Whale of a Tale. Heh heh.

Though the pictures are the same, it’s still sure to entertain the little ones and probably yourself as well. Heck, I’m 23 and I now own 10 gently used I Spy books because I just love the pictures so much.

By the way, this book comes with a warning to grown-ups: If this book is too hard for you, enlist some children to help.
