While every effort has been made to make The Levee Toy Car Hunt straight forward and fun. Here are some frequently asked questions we have received.

Q. I can’t find the toy car in the window.

A. Unfortunately sometimes toy cars go missing. If you can not find a car in the window of the business the clue leads you to, please contact us at [email protected] and we will investigate.

Q. Why are the clues so hard?

A. We have done our best to put together clues that relate both to cars and the business the toy car is located. To make things easier we have given a list of the businesses and some of the letters to help with guessing.

Q. I don’t know where the business is. How do you expect us to find the cars?

A. There is just not enough space to provide the full details of all the businesses taking part in the hunt. We suggest using The Levee website’s Directory or Google Maps if you do not know where a business is.
