Mum and dad will never find you in these amazing hide and seek locations (if you're under 3ft tall). Using household objects, upholstery and, in one truly mentionable instance, an entire vehicle, these little marvels will show you all of the tricks of the trade, and help you find that perfect hiding spot way before they've counted to 10.

Want to learn to play hide and seek like the pros? Our collection of mini stealth experts will show you how to disguise yourself in all manner of clever places around the house, from the kitchen to the bathroom, and even the great outdoors. Disclaimer: these super-sneaky hiding spots will NOT work for grown ups, so don't even try it, mum and dad!
