Product Description

The Cat in the Hat has something mysterious in his hat and wants you to play along!. Get ready for multi-sensory fun as you and your friends use your eyes, ears, fingers, and nose to figure out what’s inside! Use items from around the house—is it a toy car, an apple, a toothbrush? No two games are ever the same!

Silly and creative

Silly and creative
Use the mystery hat!

Use the mystery hat!
Social, creative play!
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 best thing about this game is that the options are limitless! You can put absolutely any item from your home in the hat which keeps the game new and fresh each time. Our 5 year old and 2 year old both love this game!

Unfortunately, this "game" isn't so much a game as it is a fancy paper bag. It comes with simple directions: "1. Shuffle the cards and put them face down in rows. 2. Select a player to choose the first Mystery Object. 3. All other players are Guessers."

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.

My daughter absolutely loves this game. She's played it for hours and we've only had it for a short while. It's ready to go right out of the box, too. No long setup or confusing instructions. This is a perfect game for a five year old and I would recommend this to anyone.

This quickly became a favorite game of my kids. It keeps them entertained easily for an hour at a time. The rules are simple enough for my 9, 8, and 7 year old to play unassisted, though of course they love to play with mom and dad best! We play a version of this game in the car (more like a "What Am I?" with yes or or questions, to figure out what we are thinking of) so I figured this would be a fun alternative for at home, and there is definitely an added tactile benefit to this version of the game.

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.

We've had this game for a year now. My 4 and 6 year old children still love it, and it is popular with friends who come to play as well. It generates lots of giggles about how creative and silly they can get with the objects that they hide in the hat. They learn deductive reasoning skills as a bonus.

I purchased this for a child with autism to help teach "guessing" and how to play a game. This also teaches listening skills and patience as well as how to use information gathered to make a guess. Very happy with the end lessons learned.

I bought this for a baby shower game. We adopted the mystery objects to baby items. It was quite fun for a small shower. The the older cousin got to keep the game. It is a great game for a verbal toddler. The family is involved, but it doesn't drag on. Itis just the right thing for a cat in the hat day.

I would recommend this to any early childhood educators. I first saw this game last March when one of my kindergarten students brought it in for Dr. Seuss Day. My class loved playing it and it support several learning skills: asking questions,
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.
