Soon to be your favorite sleuth! 13 year old Bella is a big hit with kids.
On a journey to solve 50 mini-mysteries, kids jump into the intrigue and flex brainpower to arrive at their own solutions. Every bit as fun as the stories, kids love to read the solutions with an enclosed decoder mirror!
With the same appeal as “Encyclopedia Brown” books, Bella invites kids into her life experiences to narrow down suspects, to decode secret messages, to investigate the details surrounding a crime, and to think broadly about motives and implications of foul play.
Fun illustrations, fascinating characters (including Bella’s trusty Black Lab, Noche) keep kids engaged. Clever and captivating scenarios cause kids to apply their powers of deduction and comprehension without realizing it! Bella’s Mystery Deck develops proficiency in logical thinking, skills of synthesis & analysis, and concentration.
Some of the puzzles can be solved with clues internal to the story, while others require some knowledge of natural history, science, geography and culture.

As one of the top online toy retailers, we have access to unprecendented quantities of product review data. One of the key ways that we use this data is by associating our products to the specific ages and genders of the kids who are playing with them. Whereas most retailers must rely upon manufacturer suggested ages (i.e. 3+), we take actual customer usage and share it with you here so that you can choose the perfect toy or game.
But how does this help me? You can use these graphs as a general measure of it's appropriateness for a given age and gender. While this information is generally accurate, it should not be used as an absolute answer. For instance, many dinosaur toys are purchased for boys, however, that doesn't mean that it's inappropriate for a girl who happens to like dinosaurs.
NOTE: The orange color in the charts above indicate ages that are LESS than the manufacturer suggested age. Please purchase at your discretion if your child is younger than 10 years of age.

"My 8 yr old LOVES to read! She has blown through most of the deck in just three afternoons. She really enjoys finding the clues and solving the mystery. With that said, my 10 yr old has reading comprehension problems. He has difficulty following steps and processing. These short stories are the perfect length to keep him interested and can hold his attention long enough to go back and look for clues. He is enjoying them as well!"
My 7, 8 and 9 year old all love reading Bella's Mystery Deck and work together to try and solve the mystery! I love how they talk through their strategy and reasoning and come up with creative solutions.

Our daughter chose this as one of her birthday gifts. She loves it! She played w it for at least an hour on her birthday and it will make a great travel and/or quiet time activity. Loved that it keeps her brain working and I got stumped by one of the cards too!
Perfect for a little detective

This was a gift for my 9 year old daughter. She loves it! There is a mystery scenario written on each card and a question at the end. Use the clues from the story to answer the question. The answer is on the card, but you have to use the enclosed mirror to read it. Fun!
