This post brought to you by Ripley’s Believe It or Not!. All opinions are 100% mine.
I remember growing up stopping at Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Museums when we took vacations. They were also so much fun and I loved learning all the weird and oddly awesome fun facts. I had flashbacks to those fun trips when I saw the book cover for this year’s annual Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Download the Weird, all-new collection of unbelievable, crazy, and fun stories from around the world!
This year the collection is a little different for this best-selling series. There is a new twist to Download the Weird! Now readers can actually download the weird! This totally awesome app allows hidden content in the book to COME ALIVE with just the click of a button (including the 18 foot crocodile!).
The concept is pretty simple. Just take your iPhone or smartphone and scan any of the special oddSCAN™ logos you find scattered throughout the book. Then you will be able to access exclusive bonus content and intereviews, including videos and images. You can download the app at Ripley’s website or on iTunes for your smart phone or advanced iPod.

If you are looking for a fun and eye catching book full of crazy but true stories, this is the book for you. This will make a great holiday gift for anyone who enjoys the “weird”. With fun facts and eye-catching images, the book is one awesome gift. Plus you have to love the holographic cover!
Buy It: You can purchase Download the Weird at Amazon!

The first time I visited a Ripley’s Believe it or Not Museum was when I took my daughter. We loved it! I’m sure we would enjoy the book too!

Such an enduring classic. I loved Ripley’s Believe It or Not as a kid and my daughter probably will too when she’s a little older. This looks like a lot of fun!
I will definitely have to take my step kids there because I’ve never been. Looks like a boat load of fun.
i’ve been to Ripley’s museum in hollywood and it’s great because i get to see it in person :D i used to just watch it on TV when i was still in the Philippines.

I didn’t know Ripley’s had aquariums! I have been to the museum in Orlando once when I was a kid. Lots of interesting stuff there!

My 12 year old loves these books. He always looks for the small facts in the Sunday cartoon section. We are going to look at Amazon maybe he can add it to his brothers kindle.
