32nd Chennai book fair 2010

I and my son Alan Jeffsan went to Chennai book fair 2010. We started our journey from Puzhuthivakkam house to St. Thomas Mount Railway station by hero Honda splendor bike, from there to nungampakkam Railway station by electric train and then from there to St.George Anglo Indian School,(opp to Pachayappan college) by auto for Rs. 30.00 only. While coming back we gave Rs 40.00, Latter I realized the auto driver cheated us (After we reached nungampakkam Railway station). He stopped the vehicle some where, and from there we walked a bit to reach the station.

Entrance fee for me Rs 5.00, for my son its free.

But I really enjoyed the verities of book that were showcased. Alan bought a coupe of books like

  1. Art tutorial books (Volume I to V)
  2. Ben 10 coloring book
  3. Ben 10 Scratch Magic (The book was with blank  papers, you have to scratch the pencil in the paper to get the hidden image – any one of the famous ben10 characters )
  4. Mathematics for school kids
  5. Basic Interactive learning DVD (Maths for kids)
  6. Chemistry table – Periodic Table of Elements and Chemistry
  7. Chess book
  8. Moral story books

People were selling mineral water filled tumblers, bottles and some beverage (we never heard about the brand ). There were so many books for sales from different authors, publishers, states ….. books were displayed for sales to cover all age groups. Different shaped book for activities was the best one, which attracted so many kids.

The booksellers and publishers association of South India have arranged this event. Thanks to all those who worked hard to achieve this book fair  a mega success .. 🙂

Ben10 watch

We bought a “Ben10” watch for Alan. He was so excited about it. The moment we reach the house he started to play that toy. It has four 2 rupee coin like plastic coins. Each one has a different name, Which refers to the characters in the Cartoon Series “Ben10”. Ben 10 is an American animated series created by “Man of Action” and produced by Cartoon Network Studios.

In the box itself it has mentioned as Maximum retailed praise was Rs. 10.00 but the toy shop owner was selling it fro Rs. 48.00. This rate differs from shop to shop. In T. Nagar Area its rate differes from 20 to 35 rupees at the max. It was a China product. “Made in China”.

The only thing we have to worry about is, these toys are made up of recycled waste materials. So always advise the kids not to keep the on the mouth. You might have read lots and lots of stories about China’s toys.

  1. Ben Tennyson
  2. Gwen Tennyson
  3. Max
  4. Fourarms
  5. Cannonbolt
  6. Diamondhead
  7. Ghostfreak
  8. Greymatter
  9. Heatblast
  10. Ripjaws

Kids wearing this watch and rotating their hand and saying some dialogs from that cartoon series is fun to watch. But there should be a limit on watching tv or cartoon dvds.
