Use the mystery hat!
In this dynamic game, one player, the Hat Master, hides a household object—an orange, a sock, a small toy, it could be anything—inside the hat. The other players use questions, clues, and the hat’s fun interactive exploratory features to discover what’s inside! Is it something we eat? What room does it belong in? Try feeling the hat with your elbows, poking your finger through a hole, or looking at the object through the magic crystalline window for clues!
How to play, snapshot!
Shuffle the cards put them face down in rows. Choose a Hat Master to put a household object inside the hat. Make sure they keep it super secret! On your turn, flip over two cards; choose one of the two cards. If it’s a Question card, ask the Hat Master the question on the card. If it’s an Action card, explore the hat according to the instructions on the card. Now you can guess what the Mystery Object is; if you’re not right, it’s the next Guesser’s turn! If one of the Guessers correctly guesses the Mystery Object, they win. If the Guessers go through all the cards without being able to guess correctly, the Hat Master wins!

The cards, themselves, have very simple directions or questions: "Squeeze the hat with two hands." "Lift that hat by the brim." "Is it something we eat?" "Is it shiny?" Obviously, this is a small sampling of the 33 cards. For those with directions, the Guessers simply follow them. For those with questions, the "Hat Master" is charged with responding.
The problem with the game is in the objects that are placed in the hat--there are NONE included. On the one hand, this means there are endless possibilities as to what objects can be used to play. On the other hand, it means that the "game" isn't worth the purchase price. You could easily play this game with a paper bag by allowing the children playing to take turns touching the hat in different ways and/or asking questions of their own choice without using the cards supplied. And if you really wanted that "Cat in the Hat" feel, you could just buy a "Cat in the Hat" hat Dr.Seuss Cat In The Hat - Child Size for half the price.
Again, the game concept is a great one, but it's one you don't need to buy this product to play.
I do, however, have a couple recommendations for the way the quality of this game could be improved.
1) The hat. It came bent out of shape and that hasn't improved with use. I understand the benefit of it being made from fabric, but it's a bit awkward. I've had "real" hates (that you can wear) in the Cat in the Hat style, and their structure was far superior. Something like that would be great here.
2) The box it comes in. This really needs improvement. It ARRIVED messed up, with the plastic corner (not shown in the picture) bent down, so that the box never really closes. The plastic is glued in, but not very well. I would recommend making the entire box of cardboard, and sturdier. We keep our games in their original boxes when not playing, and this is disappointing. We also are used to the superior structure and quality of the Peaceable Kingdom games.
Neither of these things have detracted from the enjoyment of the game, but I still feel that manufacturer should always seek to provide the best quality to their customers. It shows they care about us, and while in reality I know they only care about our money, they are more likely to get that money by acting like they care.
reading, problem solving and reasoning. They all wanted to play again and again. I had to get this game so I can use it
with each class and not just on Dr. Seuss's Birthday.
