Secret Decoder Ring

This modern secret decoder ring lets amateur ciphers test their knack for code-breaking.

$17.00

By the Numbers

While creating a treasure hunt for his two young daughters, Seth Sterling wanted to include a clue that required a secret-decoder ring like those he remembered from his youth. But after a search for one left him empty handed, he decided to design one himself. Modeled in the spirit of those used to crack codes during radio shows of the golden era, such as Little Orphan Annie and Captain Midnight, his modern secret decoder ring lets amateur ciphers test their knack for code-breaking. His stylish and smart stainless steel ring reveals a secret code with every turn. Spin the ring to find the hidden letter that each number represents. A game-meets-accessory best enjoyed with your friends, siblings, or partner, you'll have a blast taking turns leaving coded notes for each other to find and figure out. 10-3-24-7 8-23-16! (Have fun!) Made in China.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Secret Decoder Ring:

    The decoder ring has been such a hit! He said he was just like Ralphie in A Christmas Story now. The only slight downside was the ring size. We bought the smallest one and it's still quite large on a good sized 7 year old.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Secret Decoder Ring:

      I thought the encoder ring would be a great gift for a 9 year old. I was right. My granddaughter loved it. I gave her two so she could lend one to a friend so they could send coded messages to each other.

      I bought a ring for each of my three sons, ages 10, 12 and 12, who dream of being in the FBI, CIA and Army Special Forces. Now they can write coded messages that only they can decode. I had to put the rings on neck chains as it only came in sz 6 and 10.

        Secret Decoder Ring

        Comments about UncommonGoods Secret Decoder Ring:

        I brought 2 rings. One doesn't work, the other works just fine. These are for twins so you can imagine the disappointment of the one. The markings on the rings are almost unledgible.

        Good but not perfect

        By 

        from San Mateo, CA

        Comments about UncommonGoods Secret Decoder Ring:

        The ring is very nicely made and spins very smoothly, however, the numbers are too high in the view finder and the tops of the numbers are hidden. I love the concept but I wish it was more carefully assembled. (I don't know if this problem would exist with all of the rings, or just mine). There also is not a good size option for kids; the small is still much too big.

        Comments about UncommonGoods Secret Decoder Ring:

        I bought the Decoder Ring for my Goddaughter and when it arrived, the letters were a lot smaller than represented in the picture. Hope her young eyes can see it better than I did.
        I was impressed at how fast the item arrived in the mail.
