  • This new series allows mindful activity with a mountain biking theme
  • Kids love stickers - and there is a mountain bike book, made for that
  • The Shred Til Bed series is a great way to keep bored kids, entertained - without digital intervention

New Zealand gave us a cinematic version of Lord of The Rings, and to prove the diversity of its entertainment industry, there is the Shred Til Bed series.

What started as a bedtime book for kids who have mountain bike obsessed parents, has now expanded into a series of activity books.

In a time of varying lockdowns and winter weather, parents know the value of keeping kids gainfully entertained. The risk of too much screen time is known, and if you want to keep your kids mindfully engaged, without pixels, activity books are the answer.

Mindful mountain bike training

For those parents who would like to add a mountain biking theme to the activity book experience, Kids Ride Shotgun can provide.

The New Zealand company, which started with a seat design that allows parents to take kids on their full-size mountain bikes, has expanded rather successfully into educational entertainment.

The Shred Til Bed activity pack features a cast of animals that all have one thing in common – a love of mountain biking.

If you don’t want kids clamouring for your iPad all of the time, the Shred Til Bed activity pack contains all those proven junior educational activities. Kids have to solve trail mazes and there are join-the-dot drawings and colouring pages.

Stickers to stop the boredom

The activity book has more than 20 mountain bike themed activities, whilst the colouring book will challenge your junior rider with 26 mountain biking animals.

As many a parent will attest, the humble sticker pack is not to be underestimated for its efficacy, in keeping kids busy. There are more than 100 stickers, that can be used with the sticker book.

Graphically original and impressively drawn, the 60 pages of terrifically illustrated mountain bike fun, for kids, was created by talented artist, Mike Hearsey.
