Where's Waldo? 2022

Find Waldo in Willow Glen is Back!

Hicklebee’s has participated in the Find Waldo scavenger hunt since it began ten years ago. In support of the Shop Local Movement, Where’s Waldo? The iconic children’s book character in the red-and-white-striped shirt and black rimmed specs is visiting 25 local businesses throughout our Willow Glen community this July. 

Anyone who wishes to participate can pick up a “Find Waldo Local in Willow Glen!” Stamp card, which contains themes of all the participating sites; with each Waldo they spot, they can get their card stamped or signed by the participating shop. To make things a little more challenging, there will be one slightly different Waldo hiding in Hicklebee’s. Collecting store stamps or signatures at twenty or more businesses will entitle diligent seekers entry into a grand prize drawing for Waldo books and paraphernalia.

More than 78 million Waldo books have been sold worldwide, and they’ve been translated into over thirty languages. An entire generation has grown up searching for Waldo.
Once again, in celebration of Waldo’s longevity and popularity, Candlewick Press is teaming up with the American Booksellers Association, Hicklebee’s and hundreds of other independent bookstores across the country for some hide-and-seek fun designed to encourage residents to patronize their local businesses. There is no charge to participate, and the hunt lasts for the entire month of July. Pick up your Waldo card at Hicklebee’s beginning on July 1st.
