Choose Your Own Adventure is Back!

If you were a child in the 80’s, there are a few incontrovertible facts about your childhood:

  • You had a Care Bear and/or a Cabbage Patch Kid.
  • You chewed either Hubba Bubba or Bubblicious, and you likely had a strong preference one way or the other.
  • You read Choose Your Own Adventure books.

Thankfully, my mom is a saver of all things so my children have had the opportunity to check out some of my old CYOA books. For those of you whose parents didn’t hold on to every relic from your childhood, I’ve got great news! The original four books in the Choose Your Own Adventure series are now available in a boxed set, perfect for holiday gifting. 

My children had the opportunity to review the re-released books and love them as much as I did thirty years ago. The four book box set contains the following:


4 paperbacks, 150 total possible endings!

#1 The Abominable Snowman

You head to the Himalaya in search of the mythical Abominable Snowman.  But when your climbing pal Carlos goes missing, your search takes a very different turn.
#2 Journey Under the Sea

Did the lost city of Atlantis really exist?  Or is it just a myth?
#3 Space and Beyond

What if you could choose the planet of your birth?  No one said that choosing your home planet was going to be easy.  You’ll have to use all your resources and talents.  Be courageous!  And good luck.  May the Infinite Spirit guide you safely!
#4 The Lost Jewels of Nabooti

The legendary jewels of Nabooti are missing!  Will finding them help world peace?  Or could it kill you?

Thank you to Choose Your Own Adventure for sending this box set for review, but more importantly, for providing a second box set to be donated to those in need this holiday season. Be sure to check out the entire Choose Your Own Adventure collection at, which includes the old favorites along with new versions such as CYOA Princess Island!
