Geocaching: A real world, modern day treasure hunt - now for KIDS!
With a GPS unit that provides coordinates to find treasure, this kit is a real life adventure kids can't resist!
Grab the Geomate Jr. Geocaching GPS unit and immediately you're on a mission to find Geocache containers! Turn it on and in just a few moments your GPS gives you your present location, as well as 20 of the nearest cache locations. Additionally, it reveals valuable information including the cache I.D., difficulty, terrain, size, and directions for where to go.
Drive, hike, ride, climb, jump, fly, raft, run - How you get there is what the fun of Geocaching is all about!
And, since it's preloaded with over 250,000 caches throughout all 50 states and most countries, you can spark up a Geocaching treasure hunt anywhere you go!
Once you've finally found the Geocache, lucky you! Open it up to find the cache treasure - Then, you can take the item there and replace it with an item of equal or greater value. Along with a new treasure, you’ll have fun putting something equally exciting there for another Geocache seeker to find.
When you find the box, you’ll also discover a serial number to use on Geocaching.com. With it, you can register your find, learn who else has been there, and discover what they found.

HIDE YOUR OWN
Purchase the Rock or Hollow Log Cache container(sold separately). Put some sort of treasure in it. Put your purchased cache container outside your house (or anywhere you want), and get GPS coordinates. Then using the serial number on that container, register your newly placed cache on Geocaching.com. Give a little information on it, and now - people will try to find it! A service will email you and let you know when people find your container and the notes they write about their experience and discovery! Hide It Kit (sold separately) supplies all the items and instructions necessary for hiding your own cache - includes container, tracking tag, instruction booklet, and more.
Purchase TRACKABLES - (Geocoins or Tracker Tag), sold separately. Go to geocaching.com to register your Trackable’s serial number. Set a goal on geocaching.com for your Trackable. Maybe you’d like your Trackable to get to Europe or Germany. Put the Trackable in any geocache you find anywhere - and then, whenever you’d like, go to geocaching.com to find where your trackable has been. Other Geocachers will help with your Trackable’s mission!

Teachers can teach coordination points and geometry or hide review questions for answering. Get a whole crew of kids (or adults) involved in a fun Geocaching search!
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 6 years of age.
My Grandsons Love This Toy!
Posted 7/25/2014 by Suzanne Byrne
I would say "won't put it down!" because they wouldn't if they were allowed to have access without their mom or dad. But at $100 a pop, that will have to wait until they are older. However the Geo-Cache GPS is a fabulous-fun-learning tool! I'm the Grandma and was given a big thumbs up for that gift!
