Find It Games_Oh the Things You Will Find at the Beach!

This is one of many versions of the Find It Games.

The description on the website for the Find It Games says these will boost focus and concentration. I'm here to tell you that is true, but these games are also a great conversation starter, and they're fun! My good friend and his family were visiting us recently and I walked by with this in my hand. He asked what it was, and then everyone in the room wanted to get it in on it (not just his kids, his wife loved this one too!).

These lids do NOT come off.
They're sealed tight so that what needs to be in there, stays in there.
The top of the container lists the things that are buried in the little beads. You move the container around any way you would like to try and find the items. The lid is sealed shut and does not come off, so you know everything that is supposed to be in there, stays in there. It also means the little beads and pieces aren't going to come out and make a mess, or become a choking hazard.

See the pink fish on the left? :)
There are different versions to choose from, and we selected "At the Beach." You can see the pink fish on the left that was uncovered.


There's a yellow sea monkey and a blue flip flop (do you see them both?). The top of this container does not screw on and off, it's sealed tight. 


After one good shake, a hearty handful of items settled at the bottom and I got lucky to find them. That was the only time it happened, but it was definitely cool. :) You can see the starfish and a few other things. Even with this lucky find, there were still so many more items to look for that were on the list.

You can play with the cards too, to switch things up and find one item at a time.
If you don't want to search randomly for items, you can use the accompanying cards to find a particular item. That adds a new element to the game. Know too that there is a mystery item in each container to be found!

I think these Find it Games are great for the kids. I also think they'd be fun to put on your desk at work (or give to a teacher to put on her desk at school!), or to take with you when you're on a long car trip and the kids want/need something to do. This one is on a table in our living room. It's a fun addition that guests pick up and explore every time they sit down next to it. I love it!

You can learn more about the Find It Games, and see what other versions they offer by visiting their website. You can also follow them on Facebook, Instagram and/or Twitter.

It looks like a really fun game to play with family! I wouldn't mind having a set, it's especially perfect for parties! Thanks for sharing your experience!

Jenjen said...

Seems fun! Haven't tried this game

Lana Slaybell said...

I AM NEVER GROWING UP. I WILL BUY ALL THE TOYS I WANT AND I WILL BUY THIS ONE BECAUSE THIS ONE IS AWESOME!

RUSS said...

I like how this game promotes focus and concentration. With the Internet & all these games + apps for kids, children these days have short attention span. FindIt seems to be something that even adults will enjoy whilst of course, playing with their kids.

Kathy Lacuna said...

I think these Find It Games are great for young and old alike as the games help develop concentration. Seems fun too!

Frugal and Fun Mom said...

I have a 7 year old and a 10 year old, that I know would enjoy this game. Anything to challenge their brains sounds like a good activity to me.

Christy Maurer said...

I bet my preschool class would love that! It looks like something I'd like too!

Bhushavali N said...

Honestly, seeing the toy my first thought was Sheldon Cooper and his Transporter Spock!

Claire Algarme said...

This is new to me. My friends and I love to play games like this during parties or when we have a get-together. I hope to play this one someday, that is, if I have a friend who has this or if I'd own one in the future. :-)

Catherine Sargent said...

This looks like a fun game. This would be a great game to play with my niece and nephew when they come over.

Melisa said...

We love Find It! Have you found the penny is any of them yet?

Amber N said...

Wow, this looks like a blast! Such a unique game for sure.

mail4rosey said...

No, but I saw the YouTube frenzy about the penny! :)

Fred Experience said...

Looks like a good game to past time. I will check if there is one available in the malls. I wanna play this one!

Amanda Love said...

This is perfect if we can only find our way to a beach. I think we need one for us here about finding things in the mountains. :)

Nicol said...

ive not seen something like this before. this would definitely distract me from my work haha

Leke Awonuga said...

Lol! Lord have mercy. You just opened my mind to another reality of fun games to engage family and friends. Thanks dear.

Theresa Mahoney said...

I always love shaking these up when I see them in the stores. My girls love finding games. I should get them one of these for road trip we are taking this year. It would surely keep them occupied for quite a while!

Rochkirstin Santos said...

This can also be a great conversation starter whenever you have guests at home. It's an easy game to play also with adults.

Nicole Escat said...

That looks so fun and great game to play! I'm sure my son will love this.

Franc said...

Find it games would be perfect for parties. It would really be fun to find variety of things.

alissa apel said...

I always wanted one of these for road trips. I know a local toy store sells them here: Fat Brain Toys.

Fred Hawson said...

Sounds interesting. I hope this comes out in one of those gaming restaurants too. It looks like it may be expensive, is it?

mail4rosey said...

Nope. All varieties are under twenty bucks.

I am always swiping my niece's Find It... It is so addicting.

Phylicia Marie Pineda said...

The rules are super simple, but really fun! I love looking for things, and this one just eliminates the mess during treasure hunt games.

Ckrusch said...

Sounds like a great game! So much fun! Will give it to my niece!!

~ Noelle said...

This would be a fun game to take on a road trip to the beach!
How cool. I always enjoy these, but have a hard time finding them all.

Tamra Phelps said...

I have heard of these games but I haven't seen one yet. My youngest nephew would love it. He loves any puzzle of game where he can find stuff before I do, lol.
