Make This Summer Extraordinary ☀️

Another lifetime ago, before we had kids, we took a trip to Italy. We rented one of those little European cars that makes you feel like you're driving in a shoebox and we poked around the countryside. Everything was great until we got onto the Autostrada. Even with the gas pedal floored we could not keep up with the traffic, and the cars whizzed past us at ridiculous speeds.

It seems like the ideal metaphor for the way so many of us are feeling in this post-COVID world. Back to normal means back to the dizzying speeds of the before times, and we are doing our best to keep up. This school year has raced by, and we’re just hanging on now trying to make it to the end. Summer is almost here. We will finally get to slow down, relax, recharge and reconnect.

Kids don’t slow down for the sake of slowing down though, and they still need their summers to be packed full of fun. What better way to have some screen-free fun than a Mail Order Mystery. If you need some together time, Mail Order Mysteries are fun for the whole family. If you need quiet time just for yourself, Mail Order Mysteries are great for kids to do on their own or with siblings or friends. If they get stuck on a clue we have a handy parent guide on our website that tells you everything you need to know about how to get them unstuck right away.

We have five mysteries to choose from. Kids are the hero of their own story in the fairy-tale themed Enchanted Slumber. They save the family treasure from pirates in Treasure Hunt. Send them to spy school in Spies, Lies and Serious Bad Guys. Help detectives solve the Case of the Missing Bigfoot. And work together with your future self to Escape the Master Loop.
