If you have or know a child in elementary school, chances are you have heard of Stampy Cat or his tell-tale “Hellllooooooooo!! This is STAMPY!” intro used in almost all of his videos. It’s a fun voiceover to colorful and very popular videos on YouTube and I am giving away a copy of the first and only official Stampy book , Stampy’s Lovely Book just released today!

Voiced by Joseph Garrett, Stampy Cat is a YouTube sensation averaging over 47 million views a month. In fact, the Stampylonghead YouTube channel was in the top 10 most viewed channels worldwide in 2014. Stampy Cat has been making videos since 2006 and is well known for his Minecraft content. And let me tell you, kids LOVE him.
Who is Stampy Cat?
Our family was a little bit late to the Stampy scene because we don’t really play Minecraft….yet. We have a Wii U and until the past couple weeks, the game hasn’t been available on our platform. However, all bets were off last fall when Oscar spent a weekend with his cousins learning as much about Minecraft as his brain could handle in 48 hours.
With the rise of YouTube for kids, I am more comfortable with him watching kid-safe videos on my iPad. In fact, I’m told that Stampy Cat is consistently praised for his incredible reach and impact online, with Entertainment Weekly calling him “The Mister Rogers of ‘Minecraft’”. Stampy Cat essentially has his own world in Minecraft and it’s super fun to watch.
So it should come as no surprise that when I was given the opportunity to check out the new book from Stampy, I said yes immediately (or “straight away” as Oscar now says. You see, Stampy is a British cat). Because YouTube videos are fun, but if that can translate into reading a book? I’m sold.
Stampy’s Lovely Book is a fun adventure through Stampy’s world with games, activities, tips, jokes and exclusive info about Stampy and his friends. Oscar spent hours over Christmas drawing Stampy and his friends using pictures in the book and he told me his favorite thing so far is the spot the difference activities!
