Lonely Planet Kids – Spot The Lot & City Trails


I’m a huge Lonely Planet Kids fan and lately they’ve been producing some fantastic children’s products, ranging from sophisticated sticker books to their ‘Not For Parents’ series.  Just in time for the summer holidays, we received a few of their latest releases.

Spot The Lot        GBP 7.99

This fun activity book is a cross between ‘Where’s Wally’ and a beautiful sketch book.  There’s a list of items to spot and score (some rather tricky ones) plus drawing pages where kids can develop their own scenes.  My 7-year-old rather impressively re-created an entire airport!

My daughter loved ‘Spot The Lot’, I would recommend it for ages 5 and up.  We took the book away with us on holiday and it was perfect for killing time on the plane, in the car or at the restaurant.

City Trails – London, New York, Paris        GBP 8.99

The City Trails series is targeted at slightly older kids (recommended is 8 and up).  If you are headed to any of the destinations in the series (London/New York/Paris), these would make lovely little gifts for your kids ahead of the trip.  


We were lucky enough to have the London one waiting for us as soon as we arrived in London and my 7-year-old devoured it at night, relaying the trivia facts in the morning.

Spot the Lot and the City Trails books are available online from Lonely Planet Kids.  If you haven’t tried them already, I also highly recommend their ‘Adventures In..’ sticker books.



Jetlag & Mayhem were sent the Lonely Planet books for review and this is all my own opinion!

    They do have a really great range, don’t they – we have Spot the Lot too, and there’s plenty to entertain a four-year-old too although I agree slightly older is better.
