GIFTVENTURE LAUNCHES INNOVATIVE CHILDREN'S PRODUCT


Portland, Ore. – November 26, 2007: Giftventure, a personalized, made-to-order adventure delivered right to a child’s doorstep, introduced its Web site and original product offering today. Giftventure creates an adventure around a gift and is available at www.giftventure.com. Stephen Mock invented Giftventure while struggling to find memorable gifts for his three nieces who live in Portland, Ore.


“A relative created an adventure for me as a child and that lasting memory helped me develop the idea of creating grand adventures around simple gifts,” said Mock. “With Giftventure, we’ve found that a child is so entertained; they don’t often realize that they are doing something educational.”


When a Giftventure order is placed, the recipient receives a series of three letters via U.S. Postal Service from a mythical character: Gunther the Dragon, Captain Percy the Pirate or Fay the Fairy Princess. The letters arrive over a one week period and introduce a puzzle that, once solved, leads to the location of a hidden gift. Solving the mystery requires patience, organization, problem solving and imagination.


To create a Giftventure, the gift giver goes to http://www.giftventure.com. Simple questions are answered including the child’s name and address, as well as specific questions including the child’s favorite game and a location well-known to the child near their house. The answers are incorporated into the letters, making the adventure highly personalized.


The gift giver also enters in a location where the gift will be hidden and is responsible for purchasing a gift, big or small, and hiding it in the designated location. It takes fewer than five minutes to set up a Giftventure. Giftventure retails for $14.95 plus shipping and handling.
