The Case of the Missing Bigfoot

The Case of the Missing Bigfoot

 An old mansion. A dinner party about to begin. The lights go out, there’s an upset in the dining room, an upset in the upstairs hall. The lights come on, the safe is open and the contents are gone. Who did it? 

The detectives on the scene need the help of a keen and curious young sleuth to help them solve the case. Kids receive a series of personalized letters containing all sorts of evidence and clues: “crime scene” photos, fingerprint reports, interview transcripts, ciphers and a suspect board to help keep track of the case.

 And by the way, the mansion is not far from where you live. A big hairy creature that may or may not be Bigfoot was recently spotted in the area. You haven’t seen anything out of the ordinary, have you?

Ages 9 and up (see FAQ for more info). Great for girls and boys. The Case of the Missing Bigfoot is certified “not scary” (but extremely cool) by our Very Nervous Story Tester.

The Case off the Missing Bigfoot is a six week subscription containing five lettermail envelopes and a final package.

Such fun!

My grandkids love these mysteries! They can’t wait for the next one! Keep them coming, please!

Such a neat gift/experience!

We got this for our 10 year old's birthday gift, instead of a physical present, and he LOVED it!! Every Monday, he would anticipate the arrival of his package and would eagerly open it and review its contents each time. I highly recommend the Mail Order Mystery!!!

Great case and very enjoyable

Our grandson loves these mysteries and enjoys playing them with us when we come to visit.

We still have the suspect board up in our living room!

We have bought our son several Mail Order Mysteries over the years. While he enjoyed the storylines and mailings of the others, I personally felt Case of the Missing Bigfoot was the best. As with the others, he received weekly mailings that included a task of some sort (either a code to crack, or postcards to send, or numbers to call, or magazines to read); however, this one has a real "who done it" vibe. He loved reading the interview transcripts, and we still have the suspect board up in our living room as he doesn’t want to take it down! The present at the end of this one is a bag containing some pretty cool cryptid cards. I thought he’d more keen on the bag, but he was more excited about the cards. Went so far as to bring them to school to show his friends.

Great gift

Our daughter really enjoyed this-- so much that she wanted it as a gift the following year as well. For kids of a certain age this is perfect, not only for the mystery-solving but also for the pleasure of getting mail!
