hideandseekmonkeyHide and Seek Monkey

Hide and seek on your own is no fun, so when your friends aren’t around to play grab your hid and seek Monkey (or lion). Just get someone to hide yours around the house and then use the tracking wand to go and seek.

This clever device sends a short-range signal to the hidden toy and when the wand is near they’ll chatter or roar until found.
