There’s a new game in town where kids get to ask grown-ups the coolest questions.

KidQuest, now available on Amazon, comes with more than 100 questions and was created by the mother/son team of author Ariane de Bonvoisin and 7-year-old Everest van der Zwan. In the game, kids get to draw cards that prompt members of the family to learn about each other by asking questions, such as “Did you ever start a business?” and “When you were a kid, what did you love doing with your grandparents?”

“Creating this game with my mom was really fun and I learned so much about what it takes to start a business. It was great to have a goal together during the pandemic,” says Everest van der Zwan, co-creator of KidQuest. “Getting to know my family better was so interesting. I found out that my 84-year-old grandfather did some naughty things as a kid and that my mom was bullied in school — two things I had no idea about. With every KidQuest question, I discovered things that helped me as a kid too.”

According to de Bonvoisin, KidQuest is on a mission to foster screen-free play.

The game also includes a blank card for kids to ask whatever they’d like, and a reverse card so that adults can flip the script and ask the kids a question. There’s also a celebration card that kids can use to ask for something special — whatever they want.
