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.

Kids really enjoyed it


My granddaughters found the mystery interesting and challenging. We enjoyed discussing theories through ZOOM conversations.

Fun and funny detective exercise

We did this as a family over zoom (9 year old, his mother, her parents and brother) and all got a kick out of it. The codes were tricky but the characters in the story were great and kept us motivated -- we particularly liked the suspect interviews.


The Case of the Missing Bigfoot

The whole family had fun

We really enjoyed this activity. Our kids are 8 and 6, so it was a lot of reading for them to sit through, but they listened to most of it and had fun working through the puzzles. The quality of the clue envelopes and "evidence" was way beyond expectations. We bought another box to do on a weekend when the weather is bad.
