Hidden Object Games For Kids

Nothing captures your attention quite like a game of challenge, and hidden object games provide the ultimate mission to search out and find small objects that are hidden amongst a wonderful array of different scenes and landscapes.

For those who like the idea of a unique hand-held game, Find It Games are just what you need. Perfect for travelling, plane trips, long car rides or rainy days. Encased securely inside a cylinder, they are brightly colored and purposely themed covering everything from zoo animals, birdlife, pink glitz for the girly girl and everything in between.

Furthermore each game has a hidden penny; a real penny. These are almost a cross between a 'Where's Wally' activity book and a kaleidoscope of color.

If you prefer to play games on your iPhone or iPad, there are a large variety of free apps available.

The number of themes available in this range is sure to suit almost everyone. You can purchase games such as 'Find It Games'

  • At The Beach
  • Zoo
  • Wizard Of Oz

  • On The Farm
  • Starry
  • Veggie Tales
  • Bird Watch..and so many more

Find It Games - How Do They Work

The challenge of these games is multi-faceted. Not only are the objects hidden amongst a sea of tiny pellets which are typically in the same colors as the objects themselves, but also they are made in a combination of materials. Some are lightweight plastic so are more easily found whilst others are created so cleverly that they 'live' right inside and are almost impossible to be found.

Some games also have objects which are double sided. This means that from one angle you can see what you are looking for, but can you maneuver it so that you can see the other side? Spin it, twist it, shake it.

Find It Games - Starry Night

Starry Night is a brand new addition to the Find It Games range. Not only is it perfect for those who love stars, moons and satellites, but it is the first custom shaped container produced. Typical games are in the cylinder shape.

The star-shaped capsule provides another element to this game. There are 40 items to locate and hidden amongst the blue and white pellets means this is a challenge to enjoy.

You can search for treasures such as moon rocks, aliens and even rockets. Not to mention planets. I wonder if Pluto is included or not, given that we now know that it is no longer a planet.

The added bonus in Starry Night is the incredible glow in the dark items so not only can you play this game in the daytime, but also at night! Great for camping adventures and cubby house play for kids.

Find It Games - Wizard Of Oz

If you grew up loving the Wizard Of Oz, then this game is for you. It is a lot of fun trying to find the objects that relate to this timeless story.

Can you find Dorothy, Toto, Scarecrow, Tin Man, Lion? How about the Yellow Brick Road or even Emerald City. Tick off the items as you locate them on the accompanying notepad and then sit back and enjoy the movie too.

This is a great recognition game for kids or just a bit of fun for the adults.

Find It Games for Avid Bird Watchers

If you love nature and wildlife and are pretty clever with identifying birds, this is for you.

With 42 hidden objects, 24 birds and 19 bird watch related items you will be entertained for far too long!

Hidden amongst earthly colored pellets are objects that include a nest, binoculars, a camera, plus an array of birds such as an eagle, a mockingbird and even eggs. (Plus the hidden penny).

In addition to the game you will get a full color guide to all of the birds included, showing details of their general facts and figures and their habitat. So, not only is this fun and a challenge but educational.

Find It Games - Glitz and Glamour

For those who love pink...

This is the perfect hidden object game if you love everything pink. Hot pink. Containing over 40 objects such as sunglasses, a tiara, lipstick and high heels, every little girl will enjoy this.

Perfect for young girls, birthday party games, sleepovers and even bridal showers.

Just like all of the games available, simple shake the tube, twist it or turn it, to try to reveal the objects and when you find them just tick them off your list.

It will keep kids occupied for hours and may just be the gift that keeps on giving.

Free Hidden Object Games For iPhone and iPad

Almost all have multi-levels, challenges that unlock features and story-lines that captivate and entertain.

The best part is they are free and you can stop and pick up where you left off so if you get distracted or can only play for short periods of time you don't need to worry about loosing your place.

Versatile and Perfect for all ages

These games provide for many different learning aspects and therefore are suitable for a wide age range.

The bird, zoo and beach games, for example, are fun and educational. Not only can children locate objects and animals by sight, but also learn about them with the fun-facts guides.

You can make the games just that little harder for the adults by adding a time-challenge to them. See who can find the most objects in a 2 minute time frame. This could be the perfect interactive game for family dinner or family bonding events.

Perfect also for birthdays, bridal shower games or lazy afternoons.

This proves that what seems like a simple game can be made into a number of fun activities. This is what Find It Games are all about. An almost endless scavenger hunt right in the palm of your hands. There are so many themes, colors and options available there is bound to be one to suit you or that person who has everything!

      These games are cool. You know you make your own with popcorn kernels, an old soda bottle, and trinkets of your own? I saw someone do it and thought it was so neat! Cheap too! Great job :)
