Google Earth’s Christmas Toy Hunt

    December 13, 2006

Never let it be said that Google doesn’t embrace the holiday season. From various logo designs to free Google Checkout use, Google has always been very festive during the month of December.

This year, not only are they allowing us free use of Google Checkout, they are also including Google Earth in the celebration as well. According to the Google Blog, there are toys hidden around Google Earth and clues about the toys will appear at the North Pole everyday until Christmas Eve.

The location of the previous day’s toy, which is hidden in a Google Earth satellite image, will also be included in the daily North Pole message.

In order to enjoy Google’s Christmas game, you must have the latest version of Google Earth installed as well as the Santa Tracker and Toy Hunt module – both of which can be downloaded here. If you want to take part in today’s toy hunt, you should probably hurry. Today’s hint has already been posted.
