The Case of the Missing Bigfoot

Series of clues from detective mystery for kids

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. 

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

Mail Order Mysteries are not for children under three. Small parts could present a choking hazard.

Exciting adventure

My 11 yr old son and I were so excited about this adventure that we finished the challenge in 2 days. Haha. He loves trying to guess who it could have been and the clues and codes were a perfect challenge. A great thing to get the mind working over summer vacation. Thanks so much!

Loved it thoroughly

Our 9 year old daughter Loved loved loved it. Perfect age. Perfect level of intensity and effort and investigative skills at this age! Thank you for an amazing product and storyline.

"No sharing the job description""

My 9 year old granddaughter refused to share any details about the packages that came in the mail. “For immediate family only” was her reply. When the mystery was solved, she did finally confess her weeks as a detective! WOW!

Fun family puzzle

We loved the Case of the Missing Bigfoot. My 8 year old wanted to solve the puzzles each night and we did on sequential days during summer break. Fun for both of us to do together and was a great activity that my son looked forward to doing each day. He liked how the letters were personalized and addressed to him

A Christie-esque mystery

I ordered this for myself (in my 30s) and thoroughly enjoyed getting a new packet of clues each week. There were enough red herrings and actual clues to sort out that by the end of the mystery, I was still making a "best guess." Very well researched, well written, and lots of dialogue & story line made this a worthwhile adventure. Someone else's negative review that it was too much reading for their kids was the best review for me because I wanted lots of reading!
