Nickelodeon Trivia Challenge
by Nickelodeon
Grades 1-2 144 pages Chronicle September 2007 Hardcover/electronic    

While Nickelodeon Trivia Challenge seems to be marketed as a book, it is actually a battery-operated trivia game that provides 1000 detailed trivia questions about the conglomerateís characters and television programs. The game is designed for one or two players to compete to determine who has retained the most details about the previously viewed programs.

The questions reference a wide range of Nickelodeon shows and characters such as, for example, whether meat monsters, sandwich makers, bread bakers, or bologna elves make bologna on Jimmy Neutron. Another question asks whether the dress worn by Lolla on CatDog is brown, red, white or black. Television viewers who are the most detail-oriented may know whether Dustin accidentally drank Frazz, Spazz, Krazz, or Zazz in one episode that I am assuming would be memorable to true fans. Question 1000 asks players whether Danny Fentonís curfew is 8pm 9pm, 10pm or midnight.

This challenge will likely appeal to young children who spend hours in front of the television set and are consumed by the details of each episode. I would imagine you would have to watch an episode more than once to recall which coffee condiment (vanilla syrup, milk, nondairy creamer or sugar) Glowface threatened to eradicate. Perhaps the good news is that parents of the winning child will have concrete evidence that their child might benefit from a few good books.
