So I was on Pinterest when I found this:

It's a new Cluedo Jr. game, that involes Mr. Potato-Head.

It should have come out with the Mash-Up games lol

Looks like it’s just the Case of the Missing Cake, with Mr Potato Head added in? I feel like they could have done more with that concept...

Using Google to translate to English, they come up with "Le mystère du jouet casse" is French for "The mystery of the broken toy".

Yeah, looks like it is the case of the missing cake with a re-theming. Hasbro should have done a Mr Potato Head/Operation combo when they did the Mashup line.

Or could it have been a possible tie-in to the Toy Story franchise?

Very possible, although I imagine the Toy Story branding would be all over it - it could just be cross sell with other Hasbro owned toys.

This looks super cute, IMO. A bit closer to a traditional Cluedo experience for the younger players, since a broken toy could be considered dead. Hope we get this re-skin stateside too.

A quick eBay search shows it available in English from the UK, but doesn't have any more pictures.

The broken toy idea does seem more similar to investigating a murder than the missing cake does, but it raises some questions about the scenario - this version of Cluedo Junior has the regular suspects but chibified, rather than actual kid versions of them or kids with the same colour names. So is Mr Boddy a toy collector? Has one of the suspects been playing with his action figures and broken it?

If they wanted to make Mr. Black / Mr. Boddy a true toy collector, then the Mr. Potato Head could have been one of those unsafe original versions designed for kiddies to jam a hard plastic body with a sharp, pointy end into a real potato/ fruit/ vegetable!

But there’s nothing new here. other than some new box art, it’s identical to the current Junior edition,

I guess there must be some new tokens, maybe, to replace the drinks that were used as clues in the original. Unless they are just still used in this one as well

From the picture, It seems to be toys, like a soccer ball.

You have better eyes than me, I couldn't make out what they had on the tokens lol I figured it was different toys like that though.
