In this circus-themed detective mystery, the young detectives have to help the police and discover which circus artist kidnapped Saphir the monkey.
Saphir the monkey, star of the Alunia circus, was kidnapped last night. A surveillance camera filmed a masked man carrying a large bag shortly after midnight. The bag has been found, but there's still no sign of the little monkey.
He has to be found quickly now because the next show is scheduled for this evening and the spectators will be very disappointed if Saphir isn't there to perform.
The police needs your help to find the culprit and rescue the little monkey.
The game can be played indoors or outdoors (garden, house, apartment...). It's up to you to decide where to hide the clues depending on where the detective mystery is being held. The game begins by reading the introduction to the children. From clue to clue, hiding place to hiding place, the children have to solve all the puzzles to solve the mystery.

- Sophie: "The children loved the different puzzles, and we used the little challenges in between for collecting the clues ... As parents, we loved that the game was so well structured, which made organising it AND playing it easy!"
- Murielle: "The story, the idea and the visuals are all great, not to mention the super-smooth transaction. The children loved the detective mysteries and we made them police helmets. The challenges are perhaps a bit long."
- Marie Alexandre: "I organised the activity for 7-year-olds. Some understood it very well whilst others needed a little help with reading and understanding the puzzles. The fact that you can create clues for the hiding places and add challenges made it possible for younger children in particular to participate (2 and 4-year-olds) and those with special needs (learning difficulties). I was delighted with how easy it was to order and the speed with which it was processed."
- Audrey: "The children and the adults liked it. We had so many children: 18! But I shared out responsibility for the print-outs and we drew straws for the puzzles. We changed the ending. Saphir was thrown to the lions – we put him in a piñata shaped like a lion's head, along with balloons and clown noses. The children took great delight in smashing it! It was such fun. Thank you. Roll on the little sister's birthday!
