    1. Great fun for 12 year old birthday sleepover

      I admit it was overwhelming at first putting it together but it all came together at party-time. The timeline of events was very helpful. We had 6 girls participate and they had a blast! It was fun watching the whole things unfold. on Feb 9th 2022

    2. Perfect Mystery for 11 year old birthday!

      The entire process was so easy - they show parents exactly how to host and move the party along. Even our shy guests got really into it. We printed out character bios, added a few things into it, and hand delivered it to our guests the week before the party. Easy to social distance during this event. It took our party 2.5 hours with one break for dinner. Only one issue - some of the colored pages with clues only printed giant black squares, but this was remedied if we re-printed in black and white. on May 2nd 2021

    3. Awesome for a 5th Grade Birthday Party

      I hosted this party with fourteen 5th graders and they absolutely LOVED it! I was able to host the party completely outdoors (we live in Florida) and hid the clues in different outdoor places. I had to improvise by putting things 'near' the bathroom vs. 'in' the bathroom, but it worked out great. Additionally, with so many kids - I was able to really move things along as they worked together. I would definitely host another party again and highly recommend this party in particular! on Nov 2nd 2020

    4. So much fun, so easy!

      Did this party for my 12 yo daughter plus 5 of her friends. It was so easy to put together, everything in the kit was clear and in order. The girls had fun being in character and trying to piece the clues together. It was a successful party, I would definitely do one again. Loved it! on Sep 26th 2020
