This post brought to you by Ripley's Believe It or Not!. All opinions are 100% mine.


We are huge fans of Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! You may remember that we visited them in Orlando and in Gatlinburg this past Spring Break. As a mom of four boys, I am well acquainted with anything that is weird, strange or gross. Ripley's provides all that and more. In addition to visiting their museums, we also own quite a few of their books. These are a great and keep the boys busy, especially on long car rides. The smaller ones enjoy the pictures and the older boys like to read the full stories and captions.

{Ripley's Download the Weird Book}

In their latest release, Ripley's Believe It or Not! Download the Weird book goes where none of their books have ever gone before. It still provides the same great array of weird photos and strange stories, but it also comes with a free app that can be downloaded to reveal hidden content throughout the book. 

Among the book's pages, you will find oddSCAN logos that can be scanned with your Smartphone or advanced iPod to bring you even more crazy content to enjoy. Of course, you will still find all the things that you love from previous Ripley's books as well. Download the Weird contains a whole pull out section full of Titanic facts, which I know my oldest would like. There is also a pull out with information on the Elephant Man and a tour of the home of "Weird Steve" just to name a few. 

The Ripley's Believe it or Not! Download the Weird book is the perfect gift for adults and children who love the strange and unordinary. If you have been trying to think of a fun gift idea for anyone who enjoys the weirder things in life, then be sure to pick up a copy and download the free app on iTunes or Android.
