Essential Information For Parents. Please Read
Kids Spy Network is a concept that was developed as a way to help kids learn about the world around in a fun and imaginative way.
The first spy was recruited 15 years ago when my sister and I wrote a secret mission for our little brother who was about to embark on a 6-week world trip. We had our parents print the mission and a flight attendant surprised him with it mid flight. He was speechless, thinking he had been recruited as a real spy and spent the rest of his trip collecting information about each location, including maps, coins, brochures, and stamps.
We created the Kids Spy Network so we could share this experience with the children of the world. The magic of the secret mission is really in the delivery. Fill out the agent profile form, you can add a passport photo for extra effect and devise a way to surprise your child with their mission. Some of our favorite approaches are getting a waiter to come to your table in the middle of dinner saying “we just had a phone call and were asked to deliver this mission to you” or hide the mission in a location your child is sure to find it.
Use your imagination and we would love to hear what you come up with! We are a new business that would love to recruit as many children to share in this experience as possible. If your children love being spies please share this with your friends!
