Holiday Gift Guide Day 26 - Ripley's Review and Giveaway

Today's gift idea really needs no introduction. Ripley's Believe it or Not, brings the strange and unusual into millions of homes around the world every day. There are numerous books, a daily cartoon and almost 100 museums in 11 different countries.

Todays gift idea is Ripley's newest book release - Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Enter If You Dare!


There's something about the Ripley's books that makes you stop whatever you are doing, and draws you in right away.   When we got the book in the mail my 4 year old said "What is this?"  And flipped open the book right away.

When we saw what she was looking at everyone, including my 18 month old, stopped what they were doing and joined her on the couch.  We flipped through page after page of oddities.



And the weirder stuff got, the more we couldn't look away.  My daughters absolutely loved this guy.


To Buy It - Ripley's Believe It or Not! Enter If You Dare! is on sale at Amazon right now for only $20.  The book is big and thick and the quality is amazing.  It's definitely a fun addition to any library.

To Win It - Ripley's is also giving away a copy of their new book to one of you!

  19. The strangest thing I have ever seen was the old movie called "Freaks". But it was really educational too, because these "freaks" were real people, and I'm glad that they got a chance to make a movie and show their human-ness.

  73. This is kind of vulgar but the weirdest thing..

    I was driving down a highway and I saw a truck with no license plates. Inside was a naked man, doing something he shouldn't have been doing with no hands on the steering wheel. Needless to say I called 911. And the man was arrested.

    I have been to a couple of the Ripley's Museums,and seen some WILD things. The two headed goat always freaks me out!

    ReplyDelete
  74. That'd have to be the guy who has the tattoos and stuff to look like a reptile. He even went as far as having his tongue split in two like a snakes. Ewwww!
