Background...

This gift-pack consists of a transparent box containing Spider-Man 3: Sticker & Activity Book, Spider-Man 3: Mini Colouring & Activity Book, and Spider-Man 3: Mini Puzzle Book.

I have only seen this in the UK/NZ market, and I have only seen the three books that it contains as part of this set, not separately.

Review

Additionally, this pack contains three crayons, neatly stored in a plastic insert. The colors are black, green and blue.

In General...

The three books are reviewed separately. This review really only covers the packaging, the value for money, and the extras. The packaging is very attractive - the box comes with a nifty handle and a snap-button close.

For the five UK pounds price, there's twelve pages of full-size coloring book (not a lot). There's four pages of stickers, plus two tiny puzzle books, and three crayons. Three? What on earth can you do with three crayons. How can you draw Spider-Man with no red?

At first glance, it looks like there's a lot in this bundle. But appearances are deceptive. In actuality, it's a pretty light-weight offering. Surely it would have been smarter to pack a bit more in here, and throw in another few crayons. As it stands, this is a package that fails to deliver.

Overall Rating...

Two webs for a pack that promises more than it can deliver. Nice packaging, but the contents are disappointing.
