Tickle Monster is one of those books. I have seen my three kids giggle, laugh and bond while they read this book to each other. They each have to have a turn being the Tickle Monster and wearing the gloves and I am amazed that at that age range (a 2 year old, 6 year old and 9 year old) they each find something special and inclusive about it. We love this book and recommend it to all our friends.

If you are ever in need of a gift idea for a mom to be or even a toddler gift, this should be the first on your list.@@@@The Biggest Hit of Christmas Morning

I was really skeptical about this. I bought it for my friend's child but half-suspected it was some b.s. gimmick churned out by a celebrity with too much time on her hands. How wrong I was. She LOVED it. Her mother read it to her Christmas morning and they had the best time with it. Those kids were showered with gifts, everything from Fingerlings to a trampoline, but this was the best of them all.@@@@great gift for 2 to 5-year-olds

Our family has had the Tickle Monster Laughter Kit for over a year and we LOVE it! The "kit" comes in a sturdy box with a book and two blue furry gloves that have open holes for your fingers to stick out of. The gloves will fit small hands to average adult male hands. The book is about a monster who comes from Planet Tickle and then returns home at the end. It is a book meant to be read aloud to your children as you act out that you are the tickle monster. There is a lot of build up to the tickle monster tickling different parts of the child (from toes to knees to underarm pitties), which makes it wonderfully fun for the parents and children. I have bought this as a gift and everyone who received it has reported back to me that they absolutely love it as well.

This has become the nightly reward for our almost two year old for picking up her toys before bed. Whether it is only her and I or my husband and older daughter join in we have a great time giving her tickles every time the word tickle is read aloud. The well made box and fuzzy mitts allows us to make it an event not just simply a story. I can't say it is the best written book ever but it is silly and fun and has a mostly great rhythm. Highly recommend for toddlers!@@@@Super cute, excellent interactive story, with well crafted materials. My go to shower gift!

Just last week we had a book baby shower for a co-worker and of course this was the only book I wanted to get for them and I actually stood in front of everyone and read it aloud to all the adults as well.

I gave this to my nephew on his 4th birthday thinking that his 1st reaction after opening it and saw it was a book would be to toss it aside and continue to excitedly rip open all his new toys. After the novelty of those wore off and he settled down and was willing to sit still to give the book a chance, only THEN would he fall in love with it. (He's not easy to impress for a 4 year old lol) Much to my surprise, he opened up the adorable box it comes in and his eyes lit up as he put on the tickle monster mitts and immediately asked me to read the book to him (twice and then tried to get me to read it to his dad because he thought it was the funniest book ever) all while he still had at least 15 big toys waiting to be unwrapped. He wore the mitts around for hours showing them off to everyone at his party and tears were shed by quite a few of his friends who wanted their own mitts!@@@@Tickle Monster is one of those books with an extra bit of magic sprinkled all over it....
