The Hunt for #FlatSebastian

Posted by Claudia Towles on March 25, 2013 0 Comments

It's hard to believe [mostly because it just snowed] but Passover has arrived and Easter is just around the corner. To celebrate spring we've decided to have a scavenger hunt of sorts.

We have hidden (over 200) Flat Sebastians all around Baltimore. Fells Point, Canton, Inner Harbor, Little Italy, Quarry Lake, Pikesville, Roland Park, Hampden & Mount Washington. We'll be hiding more as the week goes on. From now until the 31st anyone who finds a #FlatSebastian will be entitled to a free gift and an in-store discount (#FlatSebastian must be presented to redeem prize and discount).

We've also hidden 25 "golden egg" Flat Sebastians worth a $10 aMuse Toys gift card! Not up for an outdoor adventure? No problem! For you indoor folks we've got little Flat Sebastians hiding all around the stores (he's hanging out with HABA, Janod, Green Toys, Jelly Cat, Magna-Tiles, etc). These little guys are only redeemable for a prize (sorry we want you out in the wild to earn that discount).

So don't let this chilly weather keep you from exploring these neighborhoods (and our two locations!). Chances are good that you'll find one of our little buddies just hanging [or sitting] around.

Happy hunting!

For more chances to win tweet, instagram (using #FlatSebastian) or facebook (post on our wall) a photo of you with our little friend. We'll be giving away three $25 gift cards to those sharing their adventure on social media.
