Find It® Games Receives A Pair of 2011 Tillywig Summer Toy Awards

If you want to blend in and hide, you wear camouflage. Soldiers use it, hunters use it, even native Americans used it. And, for the most part, it works really well. But for Find It Games, even though one of their most popular new games, “Find It On A Hunt” uses camouflage- colored pellets, the company itself simply cannot hide its popularity. Especially since it just received a two 2011 Tillywig Summer Toy Awards for two versions of its popular scavenger hunt-style games.

In order to be selected as a Tillywig award winner, a product must be determined to have high entertainment and/or educational value. Tillywig's awards program provides retail buyers, news media, parents, and consumers with product information and reviews of superior children's products available in today's marketplace. After extensive testing, they bestowed four different awards – Best Family Fun, Top Fun, Brain Child and Sterling Fun -- to children’s products currently on specialty toy store shelves. Find It Games received two of them.

Summer 2011 Tillywig STERLING FUN AWARD – Awarded to distinctive children's products notable for their exceptional quality and bold originality.

Find It On A Hunt

Recommended Ages: 8 & Up Price $20.00

“Labradors, squirrels, and ducks, oh, my! This decidedly
outdoorsy version of Find It not only contains dozens of
miniature representations of things you would find on a hunt,
the tiny pellets among which they are hidden extend the theme
nicely with a blend of wood-tone and camouflage colors. Like
all the Find It games, On A Hunt keeps your hands moving and
your eyes sharp as you race (either solo or against other
players) to bring hidden items into sight. Everything is
contained within a clear plastic cylinder, and the goal is to find
as many hidden objects as possible by jostling, rotating,
shaking, and inverting the cylinder, shifting the pellets inside to reveal the treasures. A scorecard listing all the items enables players to keep track of found treasures by checking them off as they are discovered. And, as always, focus, persistence, and a keen eye will get you everywhere!”

Spring 2011 Tillywig BEST FAMILY FUN AWARD – Awarded to top-notch products that encourage interactive fun or are well-suited to family play.

Find It VeggieTales

Recommended Ages: 4 & Up Price $25.00

“What's better than a great idea? Two great ideas that
come together for double the fun! Now your favorite
VeggieTales characters can be found in a new version of
Find It, but only if you keep your hands moving and your
eyes sharp! This is an extremely engaging game, equally
suited to solo play or group fun, in which players race to
bring hidden objects into sight. Hold the clear cylindrical
container in both hands (it's filled with tiny brightly
colored pellets), then jostle, rotate, shake, and invert it,
shifting the pellets inside to spy the VeggieTales characters
hidden within. One after another they come into view, and
when they do, check them off your scorecard. Simple, quick, fun - but not necessarily easy - Find It VeggieTales encourages focus, persistence, and a keen eye, all of which go a long way towards finding the hidden treasure you seek. The hunt is on!”

In addition to the evaluation of children’s products, the Tillywig program also awards a small number of retail stores each year for their ongoing contributions to promoting high quality, innovative new products from small and mid-sized toy manufacturers.
