The Find It Games: Starry Night is a fun game that can be taken anywhere. The Find It game includes a large plastic star that is filled with small beads and 40 glow-in-the-dark items hidden among the beads. The items include night items such as a star, flashlight, moon, firefly and Mars. As you shake the star, the beads move around and different items surface. It also comes with scorecards for children to keep track of which items they find. The star is easily portable and makes a wonderful toy for car rides. In addition, it is appropriate for children of all ages. With each shake, new items emerge, which allows even the youngest child to be successful in finding items. However, with 40 items to find, it will keep older children entertained as well. Our testers (aged 6-45) have played with this many times and have not yet found all of the items, which demonstrates the long term playability of this toy. We love this for long car rides; it keeps the kids entertained for long periods of time.
