Millburn, NJ (August 19, 2008) – Move over Sam Spade and Miss Marple. The smartest private eye may be the kid next door as Briarpatch launches its popular I SPY game series with a P.I. twist for little sleuths. I Spy Private Eye has all the intrigue a detective can handle and true to the brand, makes learning fun!
“After kids across America have sharpened their observation skills with I SPY Eagle Eye, we decided to launch a game that would put those skills to the test for would-be detectives,” remarked Marc Shinderman, General Manager of Briarpatch. “Private Eye also borrows from I SPY Memory, because kids have to remember the pictures that they have spied, so this product taps the very best that I SPY can offer.”
Based on Scholastic’s best-selling book series, this I SPY game challenges kids to remember what they have spied. Place nine picture blocks into the Jumbler, shake up the blocks and press the timer…now open the lid, you have 30 seconds to memorize the I SPY pictures on the blocks before they are hidden from view. “Beep, Beep”…time to examine the evidence! Choose an I SPY picture card and find all the images that match the blocks and score points…but watch out for a challenge!
Each I SPY Private Eye game includes nine I SPY picture blocks, a Jumbler with built-in 30 second timer, 24 I SPY Cards, a magnifying glass token (for challenges) and complete rules. Created for two to four players, ages 5+, the game has a suggested retail price of $24.99.
Briarpatch’s strong legacy of stimulating children’s lives through fun and eco-friendly products has earned the company over 270 industry awards (and counting). Since its founding, the company’s cofounders applied environmentally conscious business practices in such innovative ways as using vegetable and soy-based inks and post consumer materials.
A key ingredient to Briarpatch’s success has been to combine fun with learning. Both parents and children adore the exciting new licenses and products that Briarpatch continually brings to market. Few game and puzzle companies can boast a green thumb while enriching childhood. For more information about all Briarpatch board, puzzle, card and travel games, click on www.briarpatch.com.
