History of I Spy
The popular I Spy game for kids may not seem like it has an interesting history, but the classic search-and-find game went through many transformations over the past century that you may have never known. The game is commonly known as “It” as well as just “Spy.” While parents seem to use the game as a way to distract or entertain little ones while waiting at the doctor’s office or during a long car ride, the game used to be played more for educational purposes. It was considered a great reasoning game meant to develop a child’s observation skills. As the game became more of a classic like Tic-Tac-Toe or Bingo, it grew more ingrained in popular culture. In the 1960s, NBC aired I Spy as a secret-agent adventure series. I Spy is also a children’s search-and-find book series that inspired the Where’s Wally book series as well. Who would’ve thought such a simple game could have such an impact over the years?
