"nothing special but my daughter loves it…"
It's taken a while but this is currently my daughter's (22 months) favourite book. It's the first she ever asked for by name. I find the artwork too contemporary and liable to date quickly. And all the business about where's flop - you can see him clearly under the bed so my daughter can't get what all the fuss is about. Still, I've bought another bing book for her birthday so I suppose I don't dislike it too much.Read moreLess

"Best books for babies up to 3 years…"
My baby loved it and from 7 months would shriek with anticipation and then delight as Bing's missing bedtime friend was found.
The pictures are bold and colourful and kind of Japanesey manga cool; the text is simple and funny and not too much on each page.
I think the whole range is brilliantly designed for babies and toddlers - I read them at a baby group and they can hold their attention all the way through. They're one of our staple presents for babies.
I think they have the age range a bit wrong though - it is perfect for babies and toddlers up to 2 or 3 but not really interesting enough for a 5 year old. The new format is big paperback which I haven't tried, but I really liked the original ones which were small enough for a toddler to hold alone, hardbacked, and with toughened pages (you can still get them).Read moreLess
"Pedantic child picked holes in the story…"
DS ( who is a little older than the intended age range) read this book , his first comment was,
" you can't put your PJs on before you have your bath"
" Its not how I go to bed"
He thought the potty scenes were funny tho.
DH's fist comment was " IS this book sponsored by Microsoft?" apparently that was his first though on seeing the names Bing and Flop. He's a geek.
Over all, its a nice enough book but I wouldn’t pick it out of a book shop. Borrow it from the library for a preschool child maybe.Read moreLess

"Preschool picture book…"
The book itself looks quite dated despite being a new edition. It reminded me of the spot book range but I found it not as engaging i actually think my child would have found it more engaging if it did have flaps to find things in the places it asks you to find things.
The book is good at showing bedtime routine to your child.
However I prefer to not read stories along these lines at bedtime,he would much rather I read him a story along the lines of Oliver Jeffers,Julia Donaldson or Nick Sharratt to this book range.Read moreLess
