Providing Professional “Fun Dad” Services

We have been asked in the past, “wait, aren’t those treasure hunts just what fun dads parents do?”
Well, first of all, very fun parents!
Second…um, yes, but we do it really well.
Third, exactly.

If you have the desire, the inclination, the imagination, and the time to make a treasure hunt for your child(ren), absolutely go forth.  We’re pretty proud of our design, our key and extra hints, our puzzles that we’ve developed based on different players, different levels, and feedback.  But, do we insist we can beat you doing it yourself? That’s a dangerous claim to make.  Can we provide you an incredibly fun activity that everyone will love and occupy a good chunk of a party and save you hours (probably 10+ hours) of time setting it up? Yes, that we can promise.

In fact, the reality is that these personalized treasure hunts were originally personalized for our own children and it usually took a week full of nights to prepare.  Eventually, these could not be at every party or we’d miss out on spending time with our family and lose the fun.  But, we did develop and hone our skills and, once our children were grown (and wanted to help), we were looking at a service we specialized in.  To our joy and that of other families, we realized we could provide it to others.  In essence, “Fun Dad Services” is our business model!

To Buy Happiness, Spend Money on Saving Time.

Last year a study came out that supported what many knew: money can buy some happiness, if it buys time.  That is, if there is something you need to do (cook dinner or clean laundry) or something you would like to do (have a perfect lawn or give your child a perfect personalized treasure hunt party), money spent to make it happen and free up your time can make you and those around you happy.  Given that our hunts start at the price of an affordable good wine, we think it can give enjoyment to you and your family and friends. Perhaps it can give you some time to drink that wine.


Personalized without ever seeing us

I have discovered that is not that easy to explain what we do. We think of it as straight-forward.  The treasure hunts we create are what you would make if you had the time, the background, and the inclination to spend hours creating a fun, personalized activity that involves everyone, plays on their knowledge, and provides just enough challenge.  In that way, it might be something like hiring an entertainer or party host, BUT we never come by.  Everything happens online and you have an easy-to-follow key that let’s you run the treasure hunt with the work already done.

I’m sure you’d love us if you met us, but understandably you would be just as happy not having a stranger at your child’s party, company outing, family or school setting.  We do miss the fun, and love to hear about it and see the pictures.  The most recent pictures and videos of the school performing our hunt/mystery (in character) were a joy to see.

It is interesting, when there is so much news (and true concern) about the internet being a threat to your privacy, that there are opportunities such as our service where it can add to your privacy.  We often do not even know the address of the treasure hunts we’re sending you out on (unless there are elements of a park or such that are involved).  With anonymity you still have a completely individualized — figurative, but not literal — “hands-on” craft product, specific to your hunters and setting.

Again, we think we’re very presentable and fun; of course, lots of people are scared by clowns!
