Find Me Funzy the Fox® comes with a cute, soft and cuddly stuffed fox with endearing big eyes, and a children’s book. It’s a 7-event hide & seek family game that parents, grandparents, and other loved ones can play with their little one(s).
The book is told from the dad’s perspective. In the first few pages he is presenting Funzy the Fox to his kids, and he says, “This is Funzy, a fox as you can see, and I invite you to play a game with me.” Then Dad goes on for the rest of the book to explain how the game is played and how the kids have to get up each morning for 7 mornings and find Funzy where mom/dad/grand mommy/etc. have hidden him.
Dad says, “You’ll have to find Funzy each day anew, but I won’t leave you helpless, I’ll give you some clues.” So, we make the game short (only 7 events), and manageable (because we indirectly tell the parents and grandparents where to hide Funzy).
For example, Dad says, “I’ll hide Funzy behind a door for your first day. On day 2 look for Funzy around something you play.” Other hiding events include: (1) A day where the child bounces around to various light switches in the house until he or she sees Funzy, (2) A unique and creative 2-step scavenger hunt search where the loved ones draw a picture of the child(ren) and put a clue on the back as to Funzy’s whereabouts (the children begin that event looking for the picture, not Funzy), and (3) “On Day 7 find something odd, unusual, or just not right, and Funzy will be close by but hidden from your sight.”
Consistent with Worthwhile Pursuits’ company vision, on the last three pages, Dad says, “After your seventh search, our game is through, but one thing that will never end [then turning to the last page] is my love for you.” It is our vision that every child in America hears those words from a loved one.
Although the game is designed to be played over seven (7) days, as a practical matter all of the hiding events can be played back-to-back in one occasion if the loved ones so choose. The hiding events are general enough that they can be played over and over and still be unique or different and fun for the family.
Through the game, families can spend quality time together, have some laughs, make some memories, have fun, etc. In addition, the game provides the opportunity for cognitive development and educational value resulting from the hiding events.
As an added bonus, kids can sleep with Funzy year round if they want.
It’s a “3-in-1” product . . . a book, a stuffed animal and a family game.
Dimensions: The box dimensions are 9″ high, 8″ wide, 6″ deep. Funzy is about 10″ full length, and about 7″ sitting. The book has a portrait design and is approximately 8 1/2″ x 6″.
