Alumni create interactive hide-and-seek game for kids | Mercer Made

Bryan and Julie Scott hold Funzy the Fox

Mercer University alumni Bryan and Julie Scott are encouraging families to spend quality time together through their unique product.

In 2018, the Macon couple released “Find Me Funzy the Fox,” a seven-day interactive hide-and-seek game that children can play with their loved ones. The product comes with a book and a cuddly fox stuffed animal.

Bryan earned his bachelor’s degree in 1995 and law degree in 1998, and Julie graduated with a degree in early childhood education in 1996. “Find Me Funzy the Fox” is sold through their company, Worthwhile Pursuits, and Bryan has turned the project into his full-time job. Julie is a gifted and STEM lab teacher at Tattnall Square Academy in Macon.

The Scotts, who have three children ages 12 to 15, say the product gets kids off their electronic devices, provides them with an alternative creative outlet for play and reminds them that they are loved.

Mercer Made is a series in which we feature notable people, businesses, products and inventions connected to Mercer University.
