The Original Mystery Party

Mike's Original Mystery Party is not a children's mystery play, it's an interactive adventure! The kids themselves play the part of junior detectives as they help Mumbo Jumbo search out and decipher a series of clues they find throughout the house and yard. Kids are stimulated and challenged as well as wildly entertained. They also collect a lot of neat stuff along the way.

A mystery guest, a bumbling detective, and a rock with a clue sets the stage for an afternoon of fun and hilarity you and your children will not soon forget. Soon after a Mystery Guest arrives (maybe Madame Scooby Dooby Doobwa or Peabody VanBuran), Mom discovers some of the birthday gifts are missing. Enter the lovable detective Mumbo Jumbo Colombo, who arrives at the party just in time to help the children find the missing presents.

Mystery Mike's Original Mystery Party can be themed for you child's favorite character, such as: Scooby Doo, Narnia, Pink Panther, Mario Brothers, Spy Kids, Harry Potter, pirates, Dora the Explorer, or choose your own theme.

The Original Mystery Party if made for kids age 5 & up, and can be designed for one, or one and a half hours.

Ultimate Teen Murder Mystery

It's election night at Anytown High School. The candidates for Student Council along with their teacher, Ms. Spacebar, have gathered at your place to give their final speech's, and to tell everyone why they should be elected to office. But sometime during the speeches one of the promising young candidates turns up dead, and all the other candidates become prime suspects!

Enter an incompetent detective who immediately takes charge of the investigation and orchestrates an evidence hunt. He divides party guests into teams and sends them out in search of clues. Each time a new piece of evidence is discovered the suspects are grilled. Teams are challenged to make accusations, ask questions and test hypotheses - the goal being to solve the mystery and finger the killer (or killers!).

Recommended for children aged 10 and up, The Ultimate Teen Murder Mystery is a blast for everyone in the room because they are all party of the action. Parents are mailed a complete character breakdown, including recommendations for appropriate clothing, once a party date has been secured. Party guests should be encouraged to dress and play the part!

Mystery Mike's Messy! Mayhem

It's wet! It's sticky It's gooey and extremely messy! It's Mike's Messy Mayhem! Messy Mike leads the children outside, lays out tarps, and begins rummaging through the groceries in search of something to do. Minutes later the children may find themselves nose painting with cherry sauce, shampooing with whipped cream, or making jelly sandwiches with their toes. Plus much, much more.

It's amazing just how fun a couple bags of groceries and an everyday garden hose can be. Messy Mike's Mayhem Party is for children aged 3 and up, and is guaranteed to entertain everyone present - including parents - who are welcome and encouraged to get messy too. At the conclusion of the party, the children participate in an equally messy awards ceremony.

Recommended for children aged 3 and up, on a warm day, and that children bring their own towel and a change of clothes.
