No more fun. Forever! Mwah ha ha ha ha!

Ages 9 and up. Great for girls and boys.

Grandson LOVED his mystery

This mystery was enthralling! My grandson (age 12) anticipated his weekly mailing, enlisted his friends, was engrossed in his mystery. If you are wondering if this is worth you money, let me tell you, it IS. Do not hesitate to buy this, and I recommend you pace it out over the weeks to let your "detective" have time to work out his clues, and wait for his next assignment. This was the BEST gift he received this Christmas!

Spies, Lies and Seious Bad Guys!

I homeschool my 11 year old autistic son in grade 6, and we thoroughly enjoyed this project. What a fantastic Christmas gift from Grandma!! We both truly learned skills we use in other areas of our lives (coding, memory exercises etc.) and the tools and prize at the end of the journey were phenominal! Something you can't just go buy in a store. His custom kit was spread out over weeks and made our holiday season extra exciting! It is a very special experience, a fun, interactive storytelling that made this opportunity another everlasting memory. I loved that this kit was made for a spectrum of ages - the areas where we needed assistance at the end were great learning curves and we aniticipate reviewing the project in it's entirety again and again. We are absolutely looking into another adventure for more celebratory milestones. Thank you for your time, and focus to detail in this package! The hard work is evident. :)

Spies Lies and Serious Bad Guys

This was perfect for my 12 year old. Just enough cryptogram solving without being so tedious that a child would get discouraged and give up. The clever extras added to each section was fun and the ending prize a real hit! Thanks for a good experience in this one! I did NOT have as good an experience with BIGFOOT one! This one was worth the money and seemed like the authors had a good grasp of the age group’s needs.

Fun mystery, perfect for our 10 y.o.

Spies, Lies and Serious Bad Guys by Mail Order Mystery was a wonderful surprise gift for our 10 y.o. daughter who is very much into spycraft. While the actual puzzles, cyphers, etc. were pretty easy for her (probably better for a 7-8 y.o), she was enthralled by the story and couldn't wait to see what would unfold next week. We never let on what was going on, and I'm pretty sure for the first few weeks she 100% sure she had somehow gotten into a secret spy organization :) All the mails and material came on time and were well put together.
