Spy Treasure Hunt makes an ideal gift--it's fun and absorbing,
and parents will agree that all the time their kids spend with the
game will be time well spent.
on the exceptional I Spy books, this program takes kids on
treasure hunts--there are three altogether. They must collect
pieces of a map by solving 20 I Spy riddle screens,
assemble the map, and then follow a pirate's directions in order
to find the hidden treasure. The program is exceptionally designed
and really quite educational.
Spy Treasure Hunt contains a total of 20 detailed scenes that
each present a challenge in the form of a riddle. These challenges
can be solved by listening to, or reading, clever riddles that ask

riddles. Kids find challenges in a lighthouse, a museum, general

the form of a rebus puzzle — kids must decode a message in order
to find the treasure. Though the 20 I Spy pictures are the
same for each hunt, the riddles themselves are different. This
means there is a new set of items to find, though some objects are

earned and the map is pieced together, the hunt for treasure
begins! The multi-step hunts are wonderful rewards for kids'
