Our Spy School Grads Think Outside the Box!

Summer is just around the corner and (most) kids are looking forward to the end of school. But here at Mail Order Mystery we are accepting applications to a different kind of school. It’s a school that all kids will love, even in the summer: spy school!

For the last year and half junior agents around the world have undergone their spy training at our S.H.O.E. Academy (Secret Headquarters of Espionage). After completing a series of top secret missions, cracking ciphers and solving some tricky clues, these Jr. agents graduate spy school with their own top secret keepsake and their very own Spy ID card.

In order to print these ID cards we here at M.O.M. need to find out what spy names these Junior Agents like to go by. How do we do this? We ask them! We send each kid a top secret spy questionnaire and ask them to answer series of questions, including “What is your spy name”, “What is your favourite joke” and “Why will you make a good spy?

These questionnaires are extraordinarily entertaining, hilarious and poignant. We love reading them and we love to share some of the highlights with you.

Here are some of our favourite spy names:

Ninja Cat
Brilliant Bird
Thunder Paws
Flame Rider
Good Heart
Lava Man
Sneaky Snake
Foxy Head
Curry Flame
Pandacorn (panda + unicorn)

And a few awesome kid jokes:

"Why do dragons hate work? Because they always get fired!"

"What do you call a cow with no legs? Ground beef."

"What happened to the dog that swallowed a firefly? It barked with de-light!"


Ha ha ha! And our favourite question of all, why would you be a good spy? Because:

"I love the rush of adrenaline when I’m being brave and running."

"I am smart, fast, and pretty stealthy."

"I always spy on my family."

"‘Cause I have skills."

"I love to kick butt."

"I can defuse bombs and crack codes."

"I have a sidekick!  She’s my dog, a terrier hound mix, and her name is Fern!"

"I can keep secrets and I sneak around alot."

"I am smart."

"I am awesome."

"I am able to think outside the box."

"I can fit in a cardboard box."

"I am not afraid."
