Secret Message Kit™


Got a secret? Keep it a secret with your Secret Message Kit. Use your kit to send cool secret messages to your friends in more than 20 top secret ways. 


Secret Writer Pens

You can write messages back and forth to a friend using the Secret Writer pens. There are two pens in the kit and each pen has a “Write” and “Reveal” side to the pen. You write the note in invisible ink with your pen. You pass the note to your friend and she reveals it with her pen. The ink in the pens is invisible so if your note gets snatched away by a nosy neighbor, it will look like just a blank piece of paper.


Secret Agent Rings

These fun and fashionable rings are the perfect way for you to carry secret information around with you. Keep your locker combination, phone numbers, important dates or even names you don’t want to forget. Write a note on the mini notepad paper, fold it up and put it inside your ring. You can pull out the information whenever you need it. You can also pass the information to your friend and it won’t look like you are passing a note. It will look like you are just giving your friend a cool ring to look at.


Secret Lockets

Your can hide things in your secret locket too! Put in pictures, poems, drawings or even top secret messages. Write a secret message on the back of a picture. Place the picture inside the locket. Pass the locket to a friend so she can “look at the picture.” When she opens the locket she can pull out the picture and read the information on the back. If anyone sees, it will look like you are just showing your friend the photo locket. Very sneaky!



You can hide notes in secret places for your friends to find later with your Hide-a-Note box. Write a secret note to your friend and place it inside the Hide-a-Note box. Determine where you are going to hide the note. If you hide it on a metal surface use the magnet. If you hide it on any other type of surface (plastic, wood, etc.) use one of the foam stickies to attach the box to the surface. Place the box in a concealed place – under a desk, behind a computer, on the top of a locker, under a railing, etc. It should be somewhere that won’t be noticed by anyone, or accidentally bumped off. It should also be a place that is easy for your friend to find. After you’ve hidden the Hide-a-Note box, tell your friend where you’ve hidden it so she can retrieve it and read the message.
