Review: Where's Kitty? Dot-to-Dot
It's been years since I last did a dot-to-dot puzzle but I love adult colouring books so when a friend bought me this for Christmas I was quite excited to give it a try. Until I saw the size of the numbers that is! I'll admit I don't have 20/20 vision but with my glasses on I don't normally have any issues but I've never been faced with text this small before.
There is just no way I can sit at a table and fill in these puzzles. I have to hold the book about the length of a ruler from the end of my nose so that I can read the numbers and that makes it extremely awkward to both hold the book and try and give myself a hard surface to write on. To give you an idea how small I'm talking just have a look at this picture using a 5p coin for scale!
The book contains 37 images of iconic locations from all around the world & each picture has a can hidden in it somewhere. All of the pictures are made up from at least 500 dots but some come in at over 1000 so they can take a while to complete. One thing I will warn you is that there are a few images that have errors in them either with missing numbers or with numbers being duplicated.
There's no denying that the finished pictures look good but it requires a lot of concentration and very good eyesight to actually achieve the desired results. I can't do more than a couple at a time or I find myself getting eye strain. Here are a few pictures to give you an idea what sort of images are included.
