Have you ever gone snipe hunting? Have you ever caught a snipe? I have!
It was a rainy day at Timbuk Toys and, I admit, I was a little dubious about the whole ordeal. The last time I went snipe hunting was with my Uncle Louie, and all I found was… my Uncle Louie. Initially, I thought this excursion would be just as hopeless. But my Timbuk team was determined to play “Snipe Hunt!”
We set off to hunt through the toy store. My initial search efforts recovered some plastic plates that go with our play kitchen (I found them in a Dinosaur Zipbin), and a couple Giant Microbes that had, seemingly, escaped their home (I found them in the Calico Critters Townhouse); but no snipe. I was about to give up when, all of a sudden, I heard a noise! A chirping noise! Could it be? Yes, yes it was! A snipe! There, perched beside the Bruder trucks, was the loveliest plastic snipe I have ever seen! I caught it!
We continued to hunt Snipe all through the rainy afternoon, and many curious customers, young and not-so-young, joined in the game. Playing “Snipe Hunt” was a great way to spend that rainy afternoon!Snipe Hunt is a fabulous game that stimulates the imagination of children and adults alike. For multi-searcher play, two competing teams race to find each other’s snipe. Or, for single-searcher play, a parent or guardian can hide the snipe and let their child search for it. As soon as the snipe are removed from the nest, their internal timers are activated. After 2.5 minutes, they begin to chirp, making them easier to find. And, after 5 minutes, their beady red eyes begin to glow, allowing for nighttime play. Snipes are made for outdoor or indoor use. Perfect for any camping trip, backyard, or rainy day indoors, Snipe Hunt is guaranteed fun for the entire family!
