I actually don’t know why, but when I was a kid, I was close to obsessed with mazes! I remember being so thrilled when I found a huge book of mazes during my first trip to England. I was 11. Brain Candy: A Challenging and Fun Maze Book For Kids is not a big book, but it is so cute, I think my younger self would have adored it.

This is  a collection of around 75 mazes, the one cuter than the other.
The illustrators played with colors, shapes, and adjusted each to the theme of each maze, as this example page 33 shows:

Brain Candy p33

They even include 3D mazes.
This is just for fun activity for Ages 6-9, away from computer screens.
Though mazes are supposed to improve problem-solving abilities, plus of course build patience.
If the children are really stuck of course, as some mazes are actually difficult, they can always peak at the answer key at the end of the book.

VERDICT:  Cute, fun, and helping your children improve their basic skills.

In full compliance with FTC Guidelines, I received this book free of charge from the publisher through The Callisto Publisher’s Club. I was in no way compensated for this post as a reviewer, and the thoughts are my own.
