You were so highly impressed with Bella’s Mystery Deck I - the fun, adventurous, thought-provoking stories… and you are back for more!
Your favorite sleuth, 13 year old Bella, is back with another big hit for kids! On a new journey to solve 50 mini-mysteries, kids rave about the intriguing stories and flex brainpower further!
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 II develops greater 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 10 year old daughter devoured the first deck & this was a follow-up that I bought with a credit from Fat Brain due to a different bday present that was defective. (Thanks, Fat Brain, for making it right!) I rated this "won't put it down" because although this is not something she will go back to again and again, she could not put down this deck or the first one until she made her way through all the cards in one sitting. This toy is for mystery lovers of both genders and a wide age range. Older and younger siblings will enjoy these cards.
Information about Bella's Mystery Deck II
My niece really liked this gift - she had already used Bella's Mystery Deck I in her school. It would be great for travel or for summer break, but during the school year with all of her other homework, she only plays with it once in a while.
I got this for my daughter's 10th birthday(Feb) at her request after we finished the original deck she got for Christmas. She loves these and likes to take turns reading and solving the mysteries at bedtime. The are quick 5 minute mysteries, so we can get through a few each night. She also likes to read them on her own. Using a mirror to read the solutions is a fun aspect of the cards. Some of the mysteries are a bit difficult for her as she doesn't have the background/general knowledge to solve them, but on the flip side is developing this knowledge when we chat about the solutions together. She is learning to read/listen carefully and use critical thinking skills to determine "whodunnit". Highly recommend--I only wish there was a "Bella 3" as we will be finishing these soon!
Great for creative play!
