Card 5 Back_edited.jpg

Hint 1

Another collection of stamps, but these seem like they're all intact at least.

Hint 2

Those stamp designs seem awfully similar to some countries' flags.

Hint 3

It looks like flags from Tanzania, Uganda, South Sudan, Ethiopia, and Somalia.

Hint 4

The blank stamp might be a nearby country.

Solution

These countries all surround the country of KENYA.

Card 5 Back_edited.jpg

Hint 1

It looks like someone forgot to finish their dotted line.

Hint 2

Hmmm... if all the empty spaces were lines, how many would there be?

Hint 3

Ah! There are 26 lines & spaces together, but which ones are missing?

Solution

The missing lines are the third, fifth, ninth, and fourteenth, which using a simple alphanumeric cipher gives us the letters C, E, I, and N or... NICE.

Hint 1

!!!!!!!

Hint 2

There are only seven exclamation marks in this entire letter to Santa on the front of the card!

Hint 3

There are twenty-six lines in this entire message to Santa if you include the spaces between paragraphs!

Hint 4

For example, there's an exclamation on the first line!

Solution

There are exclamation points on these lines: 1, 3, 14, 15, 18, 19, and 26 to give you the letters ACONRSY. Unscramble those letters and you can draw us a cute picture with your CRAYONS.

Card 5 Front_edited.jpg

Hint 1

The Anonymous Cat has a message for you too.

Hint 2

Five sets of dashes...

Hint 3

...for five lines of a wonderful limerick above.

Hint 4

How many dashes are in each of those sets?

Solution

The number of dashes in each line is how many letters to count in for the message above it. The first set has 13 dashes so we'll want to count 13 letters in (C) to get the first letter. This will give you the child's name: "CHLOE."

Hint 1

You'll want to solve the rest of the card first.

Hint 2

That limerick has some interesting font colors.

Hint 3

We'll only want the red letters this time around.

Hint 4

Unscramble the letters to get what you need.

Hint 5

It looks like we're just missing the food for this card... in answer #4... the only line to not have any red letters.

Solution

The numbers are One, Three, One, Four, and represent the placements of the letters in those answers on the intro card. For example, the first letter (ONE) of the first answer (first line of the limerick) is "C". This will give you a wonderful dessert, "CAKE."
