After you’re done, clean-up is easy - take out the hose and wash it away!

All you need is a kid and a grownup to play this game. Inspired when a 7-year-old boy (Everest) started asking his parents questions, it’s all about discovery. Ask 100 diverse questions in eight inspiring categories, plus the famous celebration card, where kids ask for whatever they want! You can play it casually by laying out the cards and picking a question or assigning points for answers. Reverse cards allow grownups to ask the kid a question. Take it with you on car rides or your next vacation, put it in on the dinner table, or use it for family game night. KidQuest brings families together and passes down generational information.
