This post brought to you by Ripley’s Believe It or Not!. All opinions are 100% mine.
Lately my daughter had started getting books that contain interesting facts about different things. She loves reading information about everything from ghosts to books on sharks and deadliest bugs. These books she has been getting kind of reminds me of Ripley’s Believe It Or Not!. In fact, Ripley Publishing has released its annual addition titled Ripley's Believe It or Not! Download the Weird. It is an all-new collection of unbelievable stories from around the world.
With this newest edition of Ripley’s Believe it or Not!, you are actually able to download the weird which is very cool. It allows hidden content in the book to come alive. Downloading the "weird" is super easy. Simply point a smart phone or advanced iPod at the special oddSCAN logos in the book. You will then see the story come to life with exclusive content, including videos and images.
Some of the really interesting things you will find in Download the Weird is wide array of interesting facts, stories and interviews. You will also get to the world's oddest couple, which has the man swallowing swords, hedge trimmers and umbrella handles while the woman hangs upside down and lifts lead weights with her hair. You will also meet tourists who risked their life to get their picture take with an 18-foot-long crocodile.
Included in the book is a special pullout section that provides weird facts about the Titanic, and features the real-life story of the Elephant Man. Also in the pullout are panoramic photos of the home of "Weird Steve," where every room is crammed with thousands of strange things.
This sounds like such a fun book and application! You can visit their website and download the free applications on iTunes and Android.
I think Ripley’s Believe it or Not! Download the Weird would make a great gift for someone who likes the weird and unusual. I think my daughter would have fun with this book. I may buy it for her! It is available on Amazon.
