Hide and Seek of the Week

This week’s collections object is the Crazy Traveler game. This unique and exciting game was first introduced by Parker Brothers, Inc. in 1908. The game consisted of a game board, six wooden pins and one spinning top. Each player had three attempts to spin the top and try to knock down as many pins as possible.

Put on your looking eyes and see if you can find it during your next visit! And while you are looking high and low, don’t forget to encourage curiosity by asking open-ended questions and engaging your child in the conversation.

For example: How does a top spin? Or simply make your own version of the game at home!
