Oball Sport (all ages)
This plastic ball is bendable, twistable, smashable, chew-on-able, and virtually indestructible, as the ball always returns to its original shape no worse for the
wear. At 5" in diameter, it's not too large to play with in the house, nor is it too heavy. It can't deflate, won't lose its shape, and its open, ringed structure makes
it easy for all little hands to catch and throw. Take it anywhere - to kick, throw, toss, hit, bounce, whatever, and if it gets dirty, just drop it in the dishwasher!
Oball Jellies (all ages)
Just when you think that the original can't get any better, they always come out with something just a little… different. Hence, the Oball Jelly. With the same shape, size, and composition, the Oball Jelly simply differs in color. The Jellies version is made of translucent, glittery
colors. Color combinations include clear/pink/blue, green/clear/purple, or blue/green/clear.

Harvest Time (ages 4+)
Secret Door (ages 5+)
Hurry! Winter is coming, and you and your
neighbors need to harvest your vegetables
before the snow comes! Each turn,
a roll of the die decides if you
get to harvest one of four
types of vegetables, slow the
progress of winter, or speed
it up. The goal is to get as
many of the vegetables harvested as possible before all
winter tiles are placed, so players can use their rolls to harvest their own vegetables, or, if
they've already harvested all of the vegetables of the color they roll, they can
harvest their neighbors and help them out! One of our favorite games when
my sisters and I were little, it was always exciting to see if you could harvest
all the vegetables before everything was covered with snow!
Inside a large mansion, 1-8 players must team up to find the stolen valuables and stop the thieves before midnight, when they plan to get away!
Players discuss ideas and
strategies, and try and figure
out what is behind the Secret
Door. Every game is different,
exciting and tricky - AND a race
to beat the clock! Not
just fun for the whole
family, this game exercises those memory and
critical thinking skills as
Winner of a
Parent's Choice Award.
A-MAZE-ing Labyrinth (ages 8+)
This constantly shifting maze game has
stood the test of time at our house, and has
continued to be one of our favorites for
years. The unique game board features
square maze tiles placed every other space.
The rest of the maze tiles are randomly
placed on the board around the immovable
ones at the beginning of each game, leaving
one remaining tile. All players start their
marker at a corner of the board, and are
dealt a number of treasure cards. Each
turn, a player picks up the extra maze tile,
and slides it into some row of the board, with the goal of being able to move his
marker down a complete path to the next treasure in his deck of cards. Once a
player has reached a treasure, they put that card down, and try to figure out how to
travel to the next one. It's not easy to plan though, as each player's turn could move
you further from your treasure - or move you clear to the other side of the board!
Note: Game board includes some “magic” treasures such as ghosts and fairies,
which may be undesirable to some families. Understanding this, we have always
included two identical sets of stickers with the game, so that you can cover items
without missing out on such a well-designed and unique game.
Silly Faces Colorforms Game (ages 4 to 8)
Another one of our favorites, young children particularly enjoy this
one. At the beginning of the game, everyone chooses a shiny, colorful cardboard blank face. Then the Colorform
pieces are spread out on the game board around
the spinner. Each turn, a player spins the spinner to determine which feature they can add to
their face. Players take turns collecting eyes,
noses, mouths, hair and more to add to their
faces. The first one to collect all the pieces
wins, but everybody always wants to
play 'til the end anyway to finish
their silly faces. The sturdy
Colorform pieces never wear
out, are hard to tear, and if
they "lose" their stick, just wipe
with a damp cloth to restore.
Finish Lines (ages 8+)
If your family is like ours, you like pulling out
"quotables" at different opportune times! In
"Finish Lines," you (or your team) is challenged
to finish a famous line from one of five
different categories: Quotables,
Challenge yourself to see
how many famous lines
you can recognize and
complete, but remember,
"It's not whether you
win or lose…!"
Rivers, Roads, and Rails (ages 4-8)
Another of our family "classics". 1-8 players are dealt a portion of the 140
sturdy cardstock cards, each with a portion of river, road, or railroad on it, in
some combination. Each turn, players lay down a card, attempting to match
and continue each river, road, or railroad. The goal is to use all your cards,
matching them up correctly to the growing map, but this grows more difficult
every turn!
between a puzzle and a game,
this enjoyable set is fun for
kids to "build roads", but
challenging and fun for older
kids too!
Finish Lines
Expansion Card Set
11-In-1 Game Compendium (ages 8+)
This quality hardwood set includes eleven "classics"; there's got to
be something for just about every game-lover here!
Set includes all boards, pieces and cards to play
Chess, Checkers, Backgammon, Pachisi, Mancala,
Chinese Checkers, Tic-Tac-Toe, Snakes & Ladders,
Dominoes, Solitaire, and more. All pieces store in
the brightly-painted wooden drawers of the case for easy clean-up.
Sequence (ages 6+)
Gather round the table for some quality family time over the holidays
with this age-friendly game that puts the whole family on an equal playing field. The game includes a board portraying two of each card (in a
regular playing deck) excluding the jacks, two decks of playing cards, and
three colors of playing chips. Each player starts out with five cards in
their hand, with the object being to be the first player to create a
sequence of five of their colorod chips
in a row (horizontally, vertically, or
diagonally). Drawing a jack
allows a player to
either remove an
opponent's chip from
the board or play their
own wherever they desire.
This is an exciting game of
strategy that the whole
family can enjoy. Ours did!
Sequence for Kids (ages 4-6)
Sequence Travel Edition (ages 6+)
This version of Sequence deviates from the original in just a few minor ways.
The travel edition comes with only one deck of cards and only forty-eight cards
pictured on the board. Rather than chips, it includes pegs that can be pushed
into holes on the board so pieces aren't jostled in the car. It is contained in a
5"x8" travel case for easy storage.
Sequence Dice Game (ages 7+)
Same general concept as Sequence, but with
many deviations. Instead of card faces, the
board is composed of number squares, and
players roll two dice to try and get a sequence
of five numbers covered on the board. The
board contains 4 spaces each for numbers 212, exempting 10's and 11's. If a ten is
rolled, the player gets to
remove an opponent's chip;
if an 11 is rolled, the player
can place their chip on any
empty smace on the board.
This children's edition of the Sequence game features a board portraying all
kinds of colorful animals, two of each. 42 corresponding animal cards are
included; the first player to make a sequence of five is the winner. 2-4 players.
Squint (ages 9+)
You roll a three. Uh-oh. You need to construct a set of bagpipes out of the
shape cards - and get your fellow players to guess it before the timer runs out!
You reach for the shape cards and quickly sift through the assorted parts of
doodles printed on the cards while your family and friends yell out "cows!",
"porcupine!", "suitcase!". Can you do it? Harder than a game of Pictionary,
Squint challenges players to form objects out of a set of 72 Squint cards, each
containing random lines, doodles, curves and more. There are three challenges
on each card, ranked from 1 (easiest) to 3 (hardest). A roll of the die determines whether you will construct an easier or a more difficult object. The creators spontaneous "creativity" are sure to get a lot of laughs as the rest of the
players finally hear what the mysterious object they've been trying to guess really is! For 3-8 players.
Squint Jr. (ages 7+)
Easier in format for younger
children, this version of Squint features actual pictures on the challenge cards,
rather than printed words. This allows kids to simply re-create the picture using
the shape cards, rather than trying to make up their own representation of the
object. Sure, it sounds a little easier, but can you build it in time?
Oodles of Doodles (ages 12+)
You don't have to be an artist to play this game, but you do have to be a quick
"draw"! All players split up into two teams for this game, and decide on the
first "doodler". Each turn, the doodler must quickly draw eight objects well
enough for his teammates to identify the objects correctly… in 90 seconds or
less. To begin, the doodler draws a category card, and inserts it into the cardholder, so their teammates can only see the category, such as "Fluffy Things".
The reverse side of the card, shown only to the doodler, lists 8 objects from
the category that he or she will doodle. With "Fluffy Things", these could be
marshmallows, pillows, earmuffs, or rabbits. Then the doodler is off, hurriedly sketching objects
with a dry-erase pen
on the doodle board.
The more objects the
doodler's teammates
guess correctly, the
more points they win!
Double Pointer and
Doodle Duel liven up
the game with more
twists. Are you ready
to pit your doodling
skills against your
family and friends'?
Spy Alley (ages 8+)
It's spy vs. spy in this game of secrets and mindtwisting strategy! At the beginning of each game,
every player receives a spy identity card. The object is
to win the game in one of two ways: by
either collecting all of the spy items
(password, disguise, code book,
and key) for your spy's country
and then getting safely to your
country's embassy, or by looking
at the evidence on your opponent's
scorecards and removing other players by guessing their spy identity! Each
round, players may buy spy items, and
keep track of items they have bought on
their scorecard. Of course, the cards aren't
private, so players can easily figure out which
country you spy for if you are too obvious about
which country's spy items you buy! Thus, players
must strategize to win the game, deciding how to throw other player's off their
scent, as they collect the spy items they need to win. The concept is simple, the
deception is difficult! Although noted as 8 years and up, younger children are often
surprisingly good at this game! For 2-6 players
Clay Mania: The Frantic Sculpting Game (ages 7+)
Ready to start speed-sculpting? A great family night, or party game, players divide
into teams, with one member of each on opposite sides of a table. One player from
a team will draw a card, and he or she will start frantically sculpting it, while their team members just as
frantically must guess what it is! If the guesser yells
out the right answer within 45 seconds, they win a
token. Play continues, team by team, until all have
won a token. For even more craziness, divide up into
two-man teams, and both sides take turn
sculpting an object simultaneously while
all team members holler out guesses!
Already a proven and much-loved game
at our house, Clay Mania has also
won awards from Dr. Toy, Family
Fun Magazine, and was a Games
magazine Top 100 pick.
Telepaths (ages 7+)
How well do you know how your team member thinks? If you can guess it
right, it is definitely to your advantage in this often-hilarious word association
game! During most turns of the game, one team or another must look at a card
showing either a picture or a word, and write down a specified number of words
that they associate - or that they think their team member will associate - with the
word on the card. These frantic list-writings are timed, and Brainstorm cards,
which allow everyone to compete at once,
let teams go head to head! We think
(and we think you'll agree) that
these games go by much too fast.
You just have to keep playing!
This new game was an instant hit
in our home this year - and remains
one of our absolute
favorites. We would
definitely guess that
you'll like it too!
Basari: The Classic Game of Barter (ages 10+)
In the world of Basari, all players are merchants and they compete
to collect gemstones and points as they travel around the board.
Each turn, every player plays one of their action cards, which may
entitle them to collect more gemstones, gain points, or roll the die
for points. If two players play the same action
card, they must barter for the right to win that
action. The two players barter, using gemstones of different values to entice the other
player to give up their right to the action card.
If 3 or more people all play the
same card, nobody gets the
right to the action. Three
rounds are played, and
gemstones acquired
can constantly be
converted to points,
which each player kept track of
on the outside of the board. So, how
good are your bartering skills?
Similarius (ages 8+)
How well do you think you remember faces? Well enough to draw them
yourself? This hilarious sketching game challenges players to remember
various faces of the members of the Peapod family. At a glance, they all
look very much alike, but they do show some small differences! Between 2
and 5+ cards are laid out in the middle of the players, and the players are
given time to study them. After one minute, the cards are turned over, shuffled, and one is removed. Players then have one minute to remember and
replicate the missing person on the dry erase board! A few different sets of
included on the board
to help jog the players'
memory - but don't
count on those to bail
you out if your memory fails! A hilarious
addition to family
game night!
LINQ Game (ages 13+)
Not the missing link or the weakest link, but the matching linq! Four
players match wits as they
try and figure out who has
the matching cards. Each
round four cards are dealt
out, one to each player.
Two contain matching
words, the other two have
question marks. Players
have to give a one-word
clue related to the word
they hold; if they hold a
question mark they have
to bluff to try and throw
other players off track,
while trying to figure out
who has the matching cards. Two go-rounds are accomplished for each
word card, and players have to bid, gaining points (and spaces on the
board) for correct identification of those holding the matching Linq
cards, and losing spaces for incorrect matches. Bluff your way to the top
in this game of strategy!
Apples to Apples (ages 12+)
A favorite at our house, this hilarious association game often gets all of us laughing!
The game is centered around two decks of red apple cards and one deck of green apple
cards. First, 7 red apple cards are dealt to each player. These contain nouns like
"William Shakespeare", "a locker room", "Green Bay Packers", "mud", "chimpanzees",
and much more. One player is chosen to be a judge, and they flip up one of
the green apple cards, with an adjective on it, such as "awkward",
"obnoxious", or "fabulous". And if you don't know the meaning of an adjective just read the bottom - definitions are
included. Then each player must select the card in their
hand that best resembles that adjective, and the "judge"
decides who's card best fits that adjective, and that player
wins the green apple card. The player with the most green
apple cards wins. 4-10 players are recommended, and when
you play with 6 or more, a new twist is introduced, where the
last player to lay down a card doesn't get judged! So now you
have to be fast and creative! New crazy associations are made every
turn, and some of the unlikeliest matches will make everyone laugh!
Apples to Apples Expansion Sets
If you've played Apples to Apples as much as we have, maybe the cards, now familiar to all of you, have lost a little bit of their "punch". Four expansion sets are now
available, each with an all-different set of 288 cards.
008836 Expansion Set 1
022606 Expansion Set 3
010401 Expansion Set 2

Apples to Apples Junior
These junior versions of Apples to Apples are played exactly the same as the "core"
game above, but include nouns and adjectives appropriate for younger readers. Easy
for kids to learn, and hilarious to play, your kids will be breaking this one out often!
008837 Junior (age 7+)
Apples to Apples Party Crate & Box (ages 12+)
A more extensive game package, for those who want to start off
with LOTS of cards! The Apple Crate and Party Box sets both
contain all the cards from the original Apples to Apples game, as
well a the first two expansion sets, giving you a total of 1004 cards
to play with. Party Crate is packaged in a creatively designed
wooden "apple crate", while the less expensive Party Box is packaged in a regular game box.
019636 Apples to Apples Party Crate
025451 Apples to Apples Party Box

025454 Party Crate Expansion #1
025452 Party Box Expansion #1
025450 Junior 9+ (age 9+) 13.50
Imatchination (Ages 8+)
If I said "Christmas," what words
come to your mind? Snow, red,
trees, lights, presents, December, holiday, garland? Imatchination is a
word association game, played by
teams of two. During each round, one
of the 220 cards included is pulled from
the box, and depending on the
roll of the dice, one of the four
items off the card is chosen (each card contains 2 words and two pictures). Then all players have one minute to write down as many
words as they associate with the word or picture. Points are awarded to each team according to the number of matches they have, and special spaces along the board allow a team
to do a solo round that only they receive points for. It's a race to the finish as you try to
"read" your partner's mind!
Paired Up (ages 12+)
The clue might be "Jesus' parents" - the answer: Mary and Joseph! 36 players or teams go head to head in this game of famous pairs. One
team member (or player if playing singly) gives clues, the other tries
to name the pair, trying to get as many of the four correct pairs per
card as they can within a 45-second time limit. Points vary as a die
is rolled at the beginning of each turn to determine how many points
a correct pair will earn! Intense and challenging, this game promises
fun times all around!
026475 Paired Up
026476 Paired Up Junior (ages 7+) 12.95
Missing Link (ages 12+)
Quick, what's the "missing link" in this list? Mongomery, Juneau, and Little
Rock. Hmmm… you might figure out that these are all capital cities in states
beginning with an 'A'. Now, since you have Alaska, Alabama, and Arkansas here,
which 'A' state might be missing? Arizona - yes! And the capital - Phoenix! All
right, now if your team
guessed that answer within the time limit, you've
just won two links. If
you guessed it, and time is
already up, you win one
link. All players divide up
into teams and each
round they are presented
with this type of challenge, and try to figure
out the "missing link" in
the word list before time
is up. Play continues
back and forth until all links have been won, and the team with the longest chain
wins the game. Over 300 double-sided cards are included, offering plenty of challenges from geography, sports, advertising, entertainment, literature, and more.
Smart Mouth (ages 8+)
How fast can you think on your
feet? Use the “Letter Getter” to
dispense a pair or letter tiles, like
‘C’, or ‘E’. Then, quickly think
of a word that starts with a ‘C’
and ends with an ‘E’. Just be the
first person to yell out an answer
(like creativ e, compete, or casserole) to win the letter tiles. The
player or team with the most letter tiles at the end of the game wins! Several interesting variations, like the Name Game and Trump Time, are described in the
Smart Mouth instructional booklet. Game includes 36 pairs of letter tiles, with
‘F’, ‘I’, ‘J’, ‘U’, ‘V’, ‘X’ and ‘Z’ ommited for simiplicity.
Trhyme Game (ages 12+)
Challenge your friends and family in this "game of
Time, Intellect, and Rhyme"! Players advance by
answering Trhyme's (a set of three answers that
rhyme) with gradually decreasing time
increments as they move
toward the center of the
board (starting with 60
seconds, than thirty, and
finally only fifteen!).
For instance, a player
may get the following
clues: 1) What you
decorate, 2) A frenzied shopping trip, and 3) A joyful feeling, with the
trhyme answer being tree, spree, and glee, get it? Be prepared to steal a
Tryhme from a player who cannot answer it or to block a player from winning the game!
Jumble (ages 7+)
Taking the opposite approach as many other word games, this one challenges players to unscramble a given set of letter tiles to find a specific word! Three levels of
difficulty make play more challenging and interesting. Players roll the die to determine the difficulty they will play at, and receive the letter tiles they will need to unscramble. If
you're stumped, trade in a clue
tile to receive a hint. Sure,
maybe you can make a few
words out of the tiles, but
how easy is it to use them all?
Addictionary Game (ages 8+)
Addictionary: the Addictive Word Game - the name says it all.
To start the game, each player is dealt seven cards, and the first
player forms a three letter word out of his set of cards. Play
then passes on to the next player who must change the word by
replacing letter(s) or adding letter(s) to the previous word, or
covering letter(s) at the beginning or end of each word. After
each turn, players draw again from the pile so they always have
seven cards. Scoring is done at the end of each player's turn by
adding up the cards' values (shown in the upper right hand corners). Each player only
has two minutes to change the word, so they need to think fast! Game includes spinning 9-slot
card holder, letter cards, timer, scoring pad and pencil. For 2-4 players.
Gotta Be Quick! (ages 8+)
So maybe you can string together letter cards
to make random words, but can you be quick
enough to construct words to answer a question? At the beginning of this fast-paced word
game, players are dealt a stack of letter tiles,
then the dealer asks a question such as "name
the parts of a cow", or "name something red in
color". Then everyone scrambles to come up
with an answer from the tiles and yell it out first!
Tiles are two-sided, so the options are endless,
but players need to think fast to use them!
For 2 + players.
Pick Two (ages 8+)
Is it a Scrabble game gone wild, or a fast-paced wildlygrowing crossword without a board? The game includes
180 sturdy plastic letter tiles, and instructions for several
different games (Pick Two and Count Down) and unique
versions of these games. In Pick Two, players race against
each other to use up all their letter tiles by creating their
own crossword. Unlike other word-building games, you
can break down words, and create new ones as you try to
use all the letter tiles! In Count Down, players race
against a timer, and try to build the biggest crossword
with the most tiles before time is up. Because there are no
turns, and everyone is working on their own puzzle,
games go quickly, and everyone can compete! Of course,
words do have to be spelled correctly in order to be used!
With so many play options, and plenty of tiles for multiple players, this is one of our favorite word games!
WordXChange (ages 9+)
This game offers a unique twist to
the basic idea behind Scrabble and
other word games. 2-4 players
compete to be the first to stockpile
six words. Each player begins by
drawing a single letter tile. Then,
five letters are taken from the bag
and placed face-up on the board,
and the first player tries to form a
word from those letters and his
own letter, if he wishes. Game
continues to the next player who
gets five new letter tiles, but also
has the option of adding to the
first players word and stealing it! It is a game that relies heavily on both offensive
and defensive strategy - you have to recognize opportunities to steal from your
opponents while creating words that won't be easily stolen! Includes game pad,
126 letter tiles, 14 plastic trays, a digital timer, and an instruction booklet.
WordXChange Junior
(ages 4-9)
A variance of WordXChange specially
adapted for younger players. Instead
of players have to create their own
words, magnetic word cards are
included which are prep-printed with
base words and a list of nine anagrams
(i.e. "act" is an anagram of "cat"). Six
word card are placed around the
board, with the suggested anagrams
hidden. Once a player draws the right tiles to complete a word, they get that word
and the word list is revealed which then allows other players the opportunity to
easily identify tiles they need add in order to steal the word away. The first player
to accumulate 5 word cards wins!
WordXChange Junior Booster Packs (ages 4-9)
Each booster pack offers 20 new cards to WordXChange Junior with increasing
levels of difficulty. Level 1 is simply additional "fresh" words of the same level as
the cards included in the game, Level 2 doubles the options with lists of eighteen
words formed from the base word, giving players twice as many chances to steal
words, and Level 3 offers only a list of nine suggested letters or letter groups that
can be added to the base word without giving the actual word.
029890 Level 1
029891 Level 2
029892 Level 3
Quiddler (ages 8+)
Each round, every player is
dealt three cards, and the
number of cards dealt goes
up each round. Players are
challenged to use all their
cards in their hand to make
a word or several. After a
player uses all his or her
cards, everyone else gets one
more turn to use up their
cards, before unused cards are deducted from their points. Cards include
single-letter cards and combination cards such as "cl", "er" and "in". An
extra 10 bonus points are awarded to the person with the longest word!
Instructions included for both multiple-player and solitaire games.
(ages 11+)
Think you're good at
word puzzles? You may
want to give this one a try!
Each round, a word puzzle is
revealed, and each player
races to see who can get
the answers first. All
clues/questions are based
on anagrams, where the
answer can be found by rearranging words found in the
clue to form the answer. Clues
are included for 24 different games, each consisting of 20 anagram puzzles. An example of a clue might be "a chef reacts when asked to provide
food service". The answer, rearranged from "reacts" is "caters". Once
the first player comes up with an answer, he or she turns over the timer,
and everyone else races to answer too. When the time is up, everyone
must reveal their answer; if the first player got it right, they may move two
spaces, and all other players that arrived at the right answer move one
space. A quick, word-bending mind is to your advantage here! Game
includes board, clue cards, answer sheets, pockets, sand timer, instructions, 6 markers and 6 pencils. For 2-6 players.
My Word! (ages 6+)
Gotta be fast on this one!
Letter cards are dealt out on
the table in a row, and the
first person who can pick
out a word of 3 letters or
more from the cards on the
table and yells it out wins
the cards! Everyone can
play simultaneously, and the
cards on the table are always
changing, so it makes for a continuously fast-paced, word-finding competition that only ends when the cards
run out! Great for parties, family nights, and any time there are more
players around than all those "up to 4-player" games can handle! Original
version contains both single and double-letter cards, while Junior version,
geared for younger kids, contains only single-letter cards.
014119 My Word!
014120 My Word! Junior
Take Four Game
(ages 7+)
If your family enjoys scrabble, they will love Take
Four! With the added element of speed, players
compete to compile their
own crossword. Play begins
with each player grabbing
four of the 96 included letter tiles and forming a word.
As soon as one player has
accomplished this they yell "Take Four," and each player must grab four new tiles
and assemble (and re-assemble) them into words with their original four tiles.
This continues until all the tiles are gone, and one player has them all built into a
crossword-style arrangement. Watch out - any unused tiles count as points against
you at the end of the game! Perhaps you're good at Scrabble, but can you handle
the speed of Take Four?
Word Rummy (ages 7+)
Wordigo (ages 8+)
Think of this as a crossword-like version of
Scrabble. The object of the game is to race
against your opponents while forming words
along designated paths. Each player plays
with his or her own game board and set of letter tiles. After selecting which board to use
(there are four to choose from but all
players must use the same board type),
players each draw eight tiles from their
individual sets and simultaneously form
words along the paths. Paths must be
played in numerical order, and after each
word is played, additional letter tiles are drawn so that there are always eight tiles to
work with. Tiles may be discarded by any player at any time, but are no longer available to that player after the initial discard. Players race to complete all of the paths
on their board while attaining the highest point score before the time runs out.
Although rapid word formation is the essence of the game, strategic letter placement is just as crucial. For 1-8 players.
Letterflip (ages 7+)
A fun and challenging cross between
Guess Who? and Wheel of Fortune,
this is a word game where it pays to
be both observant and word-smart!
Each player has a game board, which
features all the letters of the alphabet, on flip-up tabs. When the game
begins, all tabs are up, and both players select a card. Then let the questions begin! Each player asks the other player about specific letters in their word like
"does your word have a 'D'?", to which the other player will answer yes or no. Letters
that are not in the word can be flipped down. Players each play with a word of the
same number of letters, so neither person holds a clear advantage. As you might
guess, the first player to guess the word wins the round!
Mad Libs (ages 5+)
Perfect for long car rides, loads of fun for parties, and even great for a
brush-up on your parts of speech, these simple, classic word games are
always fun and often hilarious! Each pad of Mad Libs features a selection of
short stories, letters, songs, and articles with twenty-some key words missing.
Each blank in the story features the type of part of speech printed underneath, so no matter what crazy adverb they supply to fill it in, it at least makes
sense grammatically! Use the top page to gather your nouns, adjectives,
verbs, adverbs, numbers, exclamations, and more, fill in the blanks, read
aloud, and just try to make it through without laughing so hard you can't talk!

Pit your word-making skills against other players in
Word Rummy. Use the seven cards in your hand to create any word (of three letters or more). You get points
for each word you form, but beware - any other player
may steal your word, add to it and switch it around to
make their own word, so it's definitely to your advantage to form words that would be
hard to change around to make a
new word! An exciting game where it
pays to watch your opponent's words
as closely as your own!
WordSense (ages 11+)
This fast paced word game will
have you racing to think up acceptable words first. 31 tiles hold every
letter of the alphabet plus special
double letter tiles (st, ll, th, ed, ea).
Players take turns flipping up to five
tiles and racing their opponents to
think of words containing those letters. Whoever
wins the round claims those tiles, and so play continues until all the tiles
are used. For easy play, exclude the double letter tiles and difficult letters.
For more challenging variations play that words cannot start with the letters on the tiles, or that the letters must be used in adjacent order. Or use
the “steal” die to allow you to steal tiles from other players to become the
game tiles - thus allowing you to keep them if you win the round. The
game comes with everything you need contained in a small, durable box.
Word Trek (ages 10+)
You draw a card, and the
words on top read "fast ball".
Can you change the first word
into the second? To win each
round, a player must do this by
changing one letter at a time, or
by rearranging all the letters but each intermediate word
must be a real word too! Players
race against each other to come to a solution. Let's see… change "fast" to
"mast", then "mast" to "malt", then "malt" to "mall", then "mall" into "ball".
Good job! Compare notes with the other players - if several come to a solution,
the player who solved the puzzle in less changes wins the point! Some word
changes are easy, while others take a lot of thinking, challenging spelling skills,
vocabulary, and mental acuity. 216 puzzles - and solutions are included.
Sentence Says (ages 9+)
A reverse-acronym game where players are challenged to form a sentence
conforming to a drawn topic out of a
collection of letters. The number of
letters and the time allotted to each
player or team are randomly assigned
by rolls of the die. The topic card is
flipped over; for instance, a player may
have thirty seconds to form a sentence
out of the letters C, T, W, S, and H with
the topic of beverages and could make
the sentence "Hot Chocolate Warms
The Soul". It's not always easy, my sister and I once had 30 seconds to construct a sentence out of X, Q, J, W, Z, and K!
Magnetic Dart Game (ages 6+)
Throwing darts can be a lot of fun,
unfortunately, the sharp points on most
darts make it unsafe for younger children
(and unprotected walls as well). This
product provides a safe alternative without taking away from the game. The set
includes six magnetic darts without tips
that are shorter than a regular dart but
have been professionally weighted. A
reversible magnetic mat made out of
fabric is also included. The two different styles of dartboards featured provide dozens of game possibilities. The
mat measures 18.75"x14.75" and is black with a medieval font to give the board
a renaissance feel. A thin rope is attached to the top of the mat with a plastic
bar so it can easily be hung on any surface (and is easily stored in the rare case
when it is not in use). Instructions on how to play different games and the
proper throwing technique are included.
Shipwrecked (ages 11+)
You and your fellow players are all shipwrecked on an island. You all
made it this far, but now you need to gather some essentials to survive. To
do this, you need to bid against your fellow players for these essentials. All
players start off with a certain number of gemstones,
and cards are turned up on the board. Players go
around the board bidding for the card using Pass, Stop,
and Strike cards. Smart bidding will get you far, but
guessing correctly how other players will play their
cards will net you even more!
An exciting mix of strategy,
lots of guessing, and even
more fun, you may even look
forward to being shipwrecked!
Fish Eat Fish Game (ages 8+)
In this fast-paced board game, players (and their fish) duke it out with
each other to see who will go home
with the biggest "catch of the day".
Each player begins with 5 stackable fish
and a set of Challenge cards. As the
game begins, players each place fish
on the board, with no two fish of
the same color placed adjacently, and
then the fish can begin to attack each
other! Fish attacks are similar to the
game of "War", with a few twists. Number cards
may decide the winner of the fight, but Octopus
and Shark can give the player an advantage too.
After stacks of fish reach five fish high, the stack is
removed from the board and are given to the player whose fish is on top to add to his "catch" pile. At
the end of the game, whoever has caught the most
fish is the winner! Kids will love challenging other
fish to fight, and being able to "gobble them up"
when they win!
Large Concentric Circles Dart Board (ages 4+)
Now even your tiniest tots can play darts
safely. This colorful magnetic dart board
contains six "Kid-Safe" darts with no
sharp points and the board centers are
formed of foam. It employs the world's
strongest magnets (Neodymium) to ensure
they'll stick on contact. The dart board is
11.75" in diameter with scores ranging
from 20 points to 100.
Face-It (ages 5+)
This unique game was designed to be played and enjoyed by both young
children and adults. For children, the challenge is in matching, counting, and
adding, while adults will enjoy the strategy players must use to win. All players start with 4 randomly-drawn faces, and a set
of coins numbered 1-5. Each turn, players can
play up to four faces of the same color on the
board as a group. By adding to groups of the
same color, players score points for similar faces
in a group, or points for
each face played. After
playing, players can collect their point payment
from the player on their right, who must
give the player that amount of their
coins. Special white "sneaky" faces let
players steal faces from their opponents.
Play continues until all faces have been played and only the sneaky face is left,
with the highest score winning. A Games Magazine 100 pick.
Penguin Ultimatum (ages 10+)
This unique strategy game challenges players to think carefully about which cards
they play, and which they keep. Players in this game have all been chosen to plan
and orchestrate the penguin "party of the century". They are in charge of inviting penguins to the party, placing the entertainers, and making sure guests are
happy. Each turn, players add another penguin to the playing surface, move an
invitation marker to a guest without one, and score the effectiveness of a party
entertainer on the surrounding guests. Players win points if "special guests" with
invitation markers are entertained, meaning that they share the same card color, or
enjoy the activity that the entertainer is performing (unicycling, singing, etc.)
Entertainer cards are also worth
points at the end, so will you lay it
down and risk your players winning points for it amusing their
guests or decide to keep it? A
unique storyline, but a fun and
challenging strategy game all
Who Stole Ed's Pants? (ages 11+)
The perfect gift for the strategist. This game
is for 3-4 players who try to incriminate the
other players while maintaining their own
innocence. Players use Evidence, Fact, and
Witness cards to incriminate others, deincriminate themselves, and increase their
credibility; when one type of card runs out,
play ends, and someone becomes Ed's new

Basically, two players attempt to line up four of their twelve pieces on the 16square board. The catch? Each players hollow pieces come in three different
sizes, and unfortunately for the smaller pieces, they can be "gobbled up" by bigger pieces! If one player places one of their smallest pieces on the board, and
their opponent would like that square, he or she may place a larger piece right
over it to steal the space! However, you can take it back if you have an even larger piece available! Lots of

can only push marbles if you are pushing with more marbles than the other
player (for example, you could push two
of his marbles with three of yours), but it

Quixo (ages 6+)
Quixo is similar to the game of
tic-tac-toe with the exception
that it is played on a constantly
shifting board, allowing for all
kinds of possibilities! The
game begins with all 25 cubes
arranged in a 5 x 5 pattern
on the board, blank side up.
Cubes each also have a side
with an 'X' and a side with
an 'O', and both players will
pick which symbol they
want to play with. Each turn, players select a blank cube, or one with
their own symbol on it from the outside row, and then replace at the
end of any of the rows made incomplete by the removal of the cube.
This shifts all the cubes in this row, which ideally moves you closer to
your goal, and frustrates your opponent's plans! A simple strategy
game that is easy enough for young children to learn, but challenging
enough for adults to enjoy too. All pieces are of sturdy wood construction, and game is available in two sizes, a larger "classic" size, and
a smaller travel edition with a 7" diameter board.

Sahara (ages 6+)
While we're used to moving diagonally or in straight lines like in checkers or
chess, this unique game challenges players to move in a triangular fashion.
The game consists of a hexagonal leather mat printed with light and dark triangles and a set of 12 wooden pyramids, six light and six dark. At the beginning of the game, the pyramids are
placed around the edges of the
board. To move, players tip or roll
their pyramids to an empty triangular space, with the goal of surrounding an opponent's pyramid
on all sides. With six pyramids to
move around the board, it's difficult to keep all your pyramids out
of harm's way while trying to capture one of your opponent's! Well
designed to be easy to learn, but
difficult to master!
Doubles Wild (ages 8+)
(ages 12+)
Strategy rules in this
unique dice game where
the object is to "knock"
your opponent's dice off
the board and into the
gutter. The hexagonal
board somewhat resembles a honeycomb, and
each player moves his or
her 9 dice around the
board. The twist here is
that these dice come in
three different shapes; pyramids, cubes, and diamonds. Once rolled, the dice
can only move as far as the number on its face during any turn. If no dice are
in the moving die's way, it is simply moved, but if it runs into an opponent's
die, the opponent's die must continue the move! And, if moved too far, it will
of course fall off the board and into the gutter. But a guttered die may not be
all that bad, as they can actually block other dice from landing in the gutter! A
challenging 2-player game.
3 Stones (ages 8+)
Enjoyed by gamers for centuries, 3 Stones
is very simple to learn, but the balanced
blend of luck and strategy makes it a new
challenge every game! Each player must
draw a stone (white, black, or clear) unseen
from the black bag, and place it on the wooden board. White or black stones belong to
their respective players, but clear stones serve
as "wild cards" and can help either player. The
stone must be placed in the same row or column as your opponent's last placed stone.
Players that form a row of 3 stones in
their color (and clear stones) score. The
game grows more challenging as it progresses - as the board fills up, will the stone
you place help you or your opponent? Winner of
a Mensa Select, a Parent's Choice Honors, and a Dr. Toy award.

For all creative individuals and latent game-inventors out there, this

blank game cards, a bag of small plastic chips in five colors, two wooden dot dice, one number die, and four colored pencils. Pull out your

This easy-to-learn game challenges players to place three or more of their
chips in a row. A roll of the dice decides where a player must place a chip,
but if it reveals a space you don't want, you get a second chance to roll! Doubles are
always wild, so if they are
rolled, the player can place
his chip anywhere. With up
to four players competing at
once, players are simultaneously building rolls, blocking
opponents, and battling for
control of a square. Winner of
Mensa Select and Parent's
Choice Honors awards.
Diangle (ages 8+)
Each turn, players roll six dice, and try to move both up and down
their triangle shaped board in one turn. A new challenge appears at
every turn as players try to manipulate their dice around the board,
using the powerful "little red numbers" to try and
help them. A fun mix of strategy, luck, and
concentration, this little game offers something for all kinds of game-players.
Make Your Own-Opoly (ages 7+)
Sure the original game of Monopoly is a lot of fun, and everybody knows they
want Boardwalk and Park Place… but what if you could design your own version
of Monopoly substituting names of places and things that are familiar (or a familiar joke) to your whole family? This unique game kit gives you just the option to
do that. The game includes a basic Monopoly-like board, minus names and pictures, six game board markers, two dice, self-stick printable labels, paper of different colors, a CD-ROM and a Game Board Publishing booklet/clip art guide. Pop
in the CD-ROM and you can custom-design your own labels for the box, stickers
for the game board squares, print your own custom money (even using family
member's photos), your own "good news" and "bad news" cards, property deed
cards, and more.

Monopoly version is
bound to be a hit!

Gold Digger (ages 6+)
Wheedle (ages 5+)
Players can stake claims and mine gold in this quick-playing game - but
watch out for those bags of fool's gold! There are six different, available
mines, and each player can stake up to three of
them, and mines can also be shared between
players. Gold cards are played beneath the
mines, determining how many bags of gold
are yielded by the mine, but worthless fool's
gold cards are also played, lessening a mine's
overall value. The challenge is staking claims
when there are still mines available, but also waiting it out so
that the mine you claim isn't
filled with just fool's gold!

kids, but fun for everyone, this is a
For months, not a night could go by without my younger siblings "wheedling"

and right.

great family game night pick!
Blink (ages 6+)
It's a taunting title, because in this fast-paced game, you really don't have
time to blink! Players are dealt a hand of cards, each with shapes and objects
in different colors and numbers on them. As the first card on the draw pile
is uncovered, players must try to play a card on it that matches its color, number or shape - but be quick, because other players will most definitely have
some sort of match, too!
Players all race to get rid of
their cards, and the first
player out of cards is the
winner! A great, easy-tolearn game for kids to hone
their observation skills, and
a terrific game for sharpening Mom's and Dad's visual
skills too!
SET (ages 6+)
It's fast-paced, challenging, AND lots of fun! And, because it's based on quick
thinking and observational skills, young kids with sharp eyes with can play very
competitively with their older siblings and parents! The game is simple; twelve
cards are laid down between the players, and they race to see which three cards
form a "set". Cards feature different shapes and symbols in different colors, and
shading patterns, and a set includes three cards that share some characteristic.
There's no turns, and no waiting - the first player who can make a set wins a
point. Chosen by MENSA as a top mind game, this is one game that plays quickly and never gets old (at least from our experience!)
Qwitch (ages 6+)
Speed-lovers, start your engines; this game is for you! The object of this game
is simple - each card features a letter and a number from A-H and 1-8. Cards
are dealt out to all players, and one remaining card is turned over on the table.
The dealer rolls the die, and which reveals either a '+', '-' and '=' signs. If a '+'
is rolled, the next card played has to be exactly on letter or number higher than
the current card, so if the card on the table said
C-6, a card with either a D or a 7 could be
played. Similarly, if a '-' sign is rolled, the card
played would have to have to have a letter or
number one lower than the card on the table,
and if a '=' sign is rolled, the card played would
have to match one of the numbers or letters of
the card. As soon as the card on the table is
revealed, it's an all-out scramble for
players to play all their cards. There
are no turns, so everyone is
constantly throwing down cards and
changing the play card!
Snap It Up! Match Three (ages 4+)
A fast-paced card game that challenges kids to make logical connections
between objects to match sets
of three cards. The cards,
each featuring a picture of an
object area are dealt to each
player, with the remainder in
the center pile. Players must
make a match between the top
card in the center pile and two
they hold in their hand. What
do football helmets, goggles,
and earmuffs all have in common? They're all things you
wear on your head! The first
player to make three "logical"
matches is the winner!
Over and Out (ages 7+)
Phase 10 Card Game (ages 8+)
A simple, fast-paced game
that's easy to learn and
requires basic math skills,
some strategy, and maybe just
a little luck! Each player is
dealt four cards, and a "Tip
Top" card is uncovered. Each
turn, every player must lay
down a new card on the pile
begun on the "Tip Top" card,
add the number on his or her
card to the current total, and
announce it to the other players, as long as the "Tip Top"
number is not exceeded. Depending on the cards a player has, they may also be
able to subtract from the total, multiply the total, change the direction of play,
or even choose a new "Tip Top" card. If a player is unable to play a card without exceeding the "Tip Top" number, they must give up one of their chips. The
last player left in the game is the winner. 2 to 8 players.
A classic game we've enjoyed for years! The large deck of cards contains several each of the numbers 1-12, several skip cards, and a handful of wild cards.
Each round, every player receives 10 cards. All players must then follow the
"phase card", and try to build the sets detailed
on the card, in order. For example, one set
might be "two sets of three". All players need
to collect two sets of 3 cards of the same number and lay them down before moving on. As
soon as a player makes a set, they move on to
the next, so at any given round, players may be
working on forming completely different
sets. The first player to complete all
the sets on the phase card wins!
2 to 10 players can compete,
and the more players involved,
the more difficult it is for each
player to make sets. A great compact game for travel!
Five Crowns (ages 8+)
Target (ages 7+)
Based on rummy, this fast-paced card game
is a mix of luck, observation, and quick
moves! Five Target cards are set
out to start the game, and
number cards are dealt to
the players. Each Target
card describes a different set like
"the total of 3 cards must be four or
less", or "mixed straight - 4 cards in a
sequence, one of each suit". Players continue around, picking up new colored
number cards, and discarding old ones,
and when they collect the right cards
to meet a Target card's requirements, they
get to grab it! New Target cards are constantly
replacing the old ones, while players' hands are always shifting to meet the
demands of the Target cards. Game is over when all 28 Target cards are gone,
and the player with the most Target cards wins.
Putting a new twist on a classic card game, Five Crowns features a deck of cards with five
suits - hearts, diamonds, clubs,
spades and stars. Similar to
rummy, players must lay down
sets of three (called books) or
runs of three or more cards.
The twist is that in the first
round, each player is dealt three
cards, in the next round, four
cards, and so on, up to the 11th
round, where each player gets
11 cards. After a player plays
his or her last cards, everyone
else gets one more turn to get
rid of theirs as well.
Triple Four (ages 7+)
Dutch Blitz Game (ages 8+)
The perfect family/friends card game for those cold snowy evenings.
Dutch Blitz is a frenzied game with double solitaire-like attributes.
Each player has a set of forty cards of four different colors, numbered
1-10. You are pitted against up to three other players with the goal
being to be the first to get rid of your "woodpile" (a stack of ten cards)
and yell "Dutch Blitz!" You'd better hurry, though, somebody else
may beat you to it, and all cards left in your woodpile are negative
points! The whole family will be addicted to this easy to learn, fun to
play, and quite contagious game of speed!
Another simple but exciting competitive game from Jax! The object of this game
is to match four sets of three playing cards to four "triplet cards". Triplet cards are
similar to the categories in Phase 10, except, they require you to collect certain trios
of playing cards like "a 2, 3, and 5 of different suits", or a run of three spades".
Each player receives four triplet cards, and seven playing cards. Players then draw
a card, and if they can match to one of the sets designated on one of their triplet
cards, they lay down the three cards with the triplet card, and take a new triplet card
from the deck and two more cards from the draw deck. Play continues while everyone attempts to make four triplets. Players can also keep an eye on the triplets that
other players have already laid out, and
if they hold three cards that meet that
triplet's requirements, they can steal
the other player's triplet! Who knows
what player will steal that last triplet
and win the game?
Solitaire Frenzy (ages 7+)
This game is similar to another card game called Nertz that is a favorite at
our house. The board features places for stacks of each suit, from ace to
king, as in Solitaire. Also like Solitaire, players keep four piles in front of
them, which they play cards on, red on black, and they have a pile of "free"
cards that they flip through, three at a time. Players each receive 13 cards
which are the most important cards they need to play, although they can also
play cards from their four piles or their flip pile. Game is over when one player is out of all thirteen of their cards, and other players that are still holding
these cards must subtract points from their score. Game comes with six decks
of cards and can be played by 2-6
players. Add more players and
additional decks for an even
more intense game! Watch
out - this one is very competitive and fast-paced we can't guarantee
that no fingers will
be jammed as players race to get their
cards out to the middle first!

Chinese Jump Rope (ages 8-15)
Into the Forest: Nature's Food Chain Game (ages 7+)
The classic game of "War" meets the forest food chain in this exciting game.
Game consists of a deck of full-color animal, insect and plant cards, each with
assigned energy points, and a list at the bottom of the card lists what it eats,
and what organisms eat it. After the cards are dealt, players can engage each
other in a "showdown", or a "challenge" to try and win cards from other players. Two "Death & Decay" cards and a few other twists add fun and excitement. The player who holds the most energy points when play is over wins.
Definitely a favorite in our house - my sisters and practically wore the cards out
playing after school, in the car, and whenever we could squeeze in a game!
For those of you uneducated in the ways of Chinese jump rope, it is played with
three people. Two people attach the rope to
their ankles or knees, and the third jumps
over, onto, around, or through the loop.
Sound easy? Not really, because as you get
better, the steps become more complicated!
This Klutz book includes two sturdy elastic
jump ropes, directions for 9 games, and instructions for making
your own jump rope!
Cubes (ages 7+)
This fast-playing game from Jax challenges mental math skills! Each round, players put five points into the "pot". Then, players take turns rolling the cubes in the
shaker cup to determine if they can take points out of the pot, or if they must add
more to the pot. Play continues round after round until one player does not have
five points in chips to add to the pot. Player with the highest
score after three rounds is the winner. Game includes 50
playing chips, 6 colored number cubes, 1 shaker cup, a score
pad, and instructions.
For 2-10 players.
Chips (ages 4+)
This game is great practice for kids just learning their numbers and addition, and a great strategy game (plus mental math practice!) for adults! At the
beginning of the game, 10 playing chips numbered 110 are given to each player. The first player then rolls
the dice and tries to use his chips to match the number on the dice. For instance, if a player rolls two 6's,
all players will need to use a combination of his chips
to add up to that number, such as a 6, 5 and 1, 7 and
5, 10 and 2, etc. Play continues until
a player can no longer use his chips
to add up to the number rolled, and
the points are his or her chips are
added up to determine their score.
Player with the lowest score after three
rounds is the winner! For two or more players.
1-2-3 OY! (ages 4+)
These award-winning, versatile and often fast-paced card games can be
played and enjoyed by children of different math abilities, including those
just learning their numbers, and those that can already add and subtract.
The deck itself contains 5 sets of numbers 0-16 and five OY! cards. The
included instruction booklet details ten different games (plus variations)
which challenge a variety of math skills. Some games can be
played individually, and others will require several
players. Winner of multiple awards, including a
"Games 100" award. With games involving speed,
slapping cards, and yelling "OY!", we suspect this game,
although "educational" might be a winner in your household as well.
Borderline Geography Games (ages 8+)
This fun and easy-to-learn game makes learning geography almost effortless! Each
game consists of a deck of cards representing states, countries, continents, landmarks,
bodies of water or parallels and meridians, depending on game edition. After players are
dealt cards, one card from the draw player is revealed to begin the game. Basically, each
player during his turn must play a card on the play card which shares a border with it, or
shares some other geographical entity with it. For example, in the U.S. version, if the card
on top of the play pile showed Illinois, a player could play an Iowa card, since they share
a borderline. Other cards can be played, but no match is found, the player could draw a
new card… or throw one down as a bluff - and hope they don't get caught! More challenging than you think, the game is fun for the whole family and a great way to learn the
location of our 50 states, the countries of the world, and more! Africa and Europe editions challenge players' knowledge of country locations, USA edition tests knowledge of
our U.S. states, and world edition challenges players' knowledge of countries, continents
and bodies of water all over the world. Borderline Explorer Gift Pack contains Africa,
Europe, and U.S. editions.

Outburst® Bible Edition (ages 8+)
Worst-Case Scenario Games (ages 6+)
If you've ever played the original game, you know that to win points here,
your teammates need to shout out specific answers to categories. The Bible
version takes a fun twist on the game, with topics like "Names for Christ",
"Animals in the Bible", "Sons of Jacob", and "10 books of the Old
Testament" and nearly 250 others. When the timer is started, teammates
will yell out answers to each of the ten topics on the card, and try to nail
the ten target answers printed on the card in sixty seconds or less. A special card viewer is provided along with a timer, game board, and game
pieces. The winning team is the one who correctly answers fifty questions

knowledge and good guessing will come in handy! Game best played with

like "how to wrestle an alligator" or "how
to escape from a forest fire". Players round

version, centered around the Bible makes for an additional challenge? Just how well
do you remember specifics about names, places, and
events from the Bible? Like the original game, the goal is
to fill in a given list with items starting with the same letter. For example, if a "C" is rolled on the letter die, players answer questions using only "C" words. Quick!
What's a place where Christ walked? Canaan! Things that
separate us from each other? Carelessness! Use the timer
to limit response time for additional challenge! The player with the most original answers after thee rounds is the
winner. For 2 to 4 players.
GeoSafari (ages 4+)
GeoSafari Laptop (ages 4+)
Teaching tool or toy?
Originally designed to teach
geography skills, its popularity
prompted additional lesson
packs to be developed in the
areas of history, science, logic,
and early learning activities.
The setup of the unit allows for
one or multiple players. Players
simply place the card they
would like to play off of into
the slot, enter the card's code, and begin. The roving lights on the edge of the
unit mark a question, or an item to identify, and players enter their response on
the number pad. Adjustable response time allows for different skill levels and
a handy volume control lets the student use it during school without disturbing
others or in the car without getting on Dad's nerves. Four D-cell batteries (not
included) make the unit portable, but the AC adapter cuts down on battery
expense. The unit comes with a card pack to get you started entitled Basic
Geography, and was developed by the National Geographic Society. The
GeoSafari Junior unit is identical in function to the original GeoSafari, but is
more brightly colored, and comes with the Learning Fun pack instead of the
Geography pack. GeoSafari School Version below includes two headphone
jacks, and A/C adaptor. Original GeoSafari and Geosafari Junior do NOT
include A/C adaptor, and include one headphone jack.

Rubberneckers (ages 4+)
Being a "rubbernecker", that is, staring
at every interesting thing besides
the road, may not be a good
idea if you're driving, but if
you're in the backseat, it sure
makes the drive a lot more interesting! And if you're a true rubbernecker, you'll be good at this travel game!
This deck of cards each contain a
name or picture of something to
look for and most also include
bonus points, if what you see is special in some
way. For example, the card may ask you to find a
basketball hoop, but you get another five points if people are actually playing basketball with it. Other special cards in the deck give a more competitive edge to
the game, such as players racing to see the same thing first, or trying to get another car rider to interact with them in some way. The first traveler to amass 100
points wins. The Junior version is played much the same, but the cards feature
simpler objects to find, and all are pictured, so pre-readers can play. Both decks
measure 3" x 4.5" and cards are laminated.

together in a sturdy cardboard frame to keep all the pieces together.

different geometric puzzles. You get a lot of puzzle for the price here, plus
help with patterning, visual, and problem-solving skills, too. The only rule to

Scramble Squares Puzzles (ages 4+)
Scramble Puzzles (ages 4-8)
These colorful puzzles will leave everyone's mind scrambled, no matter
what their age. This puzzle is great as kids will love the bright pictures,
and adults will love the challenge. Each puzzle consists of nine 4"x4", flat
squares which form a completed picture when arranged correctly. The
trick to this puzzle is that an individual piece has 4 characters on it with
only half of each character on each side. The sides of each piece then
need to be matched up to the side of another square which has another 4
half-characters to complete the puzzle. That seems simple enough for the
first few squares, but when you're left with only one piece that doesn't
match up right, it takes lots of thinking and rearranging until you get all
nine squares pieced together right. Great for one or more players. Variety
of puzzle images to choose from!

A close cousin to Scramble Squares, but simpler for younger puzzlers. Each
8"x8" wooden puzzle is cut into 9 squares, each of which shows half of an
object on 2 or more sides, and all sides must be matched up to the sides of other
pieces showing similar objects in order to correctly complete the picture. Each

Tantrix Discovery (ages 8+)
This fun puzzle is a great stocking stuffer and it will keep any player busy for hours. The
puzzle consists of ten flat, sturdy, six-sided tiles in a black mesh bag. The tiles are
1.5"x1.5" and are numbered from one to ten and display red, blue, and yellow lines. The
purpose of the puzzle is to create complete circles or loops by connecting the lines on the
tiles. You begin with three tiles, make a
circle connecting lines of the same color
on the tiles, then try to do it with one
more, and so on. Puzzlers add one tile at
a time until finally creating loops with all
three colors, using all ten tiles. With less
than ten tiles, only one color of loop is
possible to create, but with all ten tiles,
each color has its own solution. If this
does not sound challenging enough for
you (and believe me, it's harder than it
sounds!) you can play with two sets of
tiles for more complex loops.
This fun logic game is easy to start but challenging to work and complete. The aim of the game is to build perfect units called "pentas" by
placing a certain number of pentaminoes on the game board in the
correct configuration. When you find one of the many different possible solutions (or shall I say, IF you find a solution) simply use the
wooden "wall" to increase the board size for an bigger challenge, as
the game becomes harder as the number of pentaminoes used
increases. Great for one or two players. Puzzle includes two wooden
playing boards, twelve wooden pentaminoes, and instructions. The
pentamino blocks are an assortment of various colors and shapes.
The boards are very durable, and are notched so you can create smaller challenges using the included wooden wall. The boards measure
31x19.5x4.5 cm.
Aha! Brainteaser Classics (ages 8+)

8 brainteaser puzzles comes with its own set of pieces, how-to-play
card, and three hint cards. Use the hints as needed to get a nudge in

experience when you discover the solution to the puzzle. This collection of 8 brain-building puzzles include: Pack It In, Wing It, All Up
Hill, and the Fifth Chair and these along with the others will help you

026783 Starter Set (15 pc)
026781 Junior Set (15 pc)
This wonderful thinking-skill building game starts out easy and
progresses into harder puzzles so younger kids can develop skills as
they advance to solve even more challenging puzzles. It contains a
tray with 32 colorful design tiles and 30 sturdy puzzle boards. While
the first puzzles consist of spaces to match single shapes to, the
puzzles progress to a point where they have just an outline of a figure, and children are required to think and solve the puzzle, experimenting with different pieces until they find the correct combination. Play alone or with a friend!
SuperMind is a sequel for children who have successfully completed the Mighty Mind puzzles. The puzzles in SuperMind are
based on the same tiles as Mighty Mind, but are more difficult.
Regular editions include plastic pieces while deluxe sets include
wooden pieces.

Rush Hour puzzles are wonderful for all ages, but once
younger kids get through the beginning cards and a few
harder, it can get too difficult for them. The solution to
this puzzle? Rush Hour Jr.! It has all the fun of the original, with minor changes. For example, their playing piece
is an ice-cream truck they guide through the maze of fire
trucks, police cars, and other vehicles. The game comes

personalized, interactive,
3Dimensional puzzle in
the market. LiveCube

shapes that fit into a 3" x
2 ½" cube, 30 Master

3-D Kids and Parents Adventure set is similar to the classic LiveCube, however, the
pieces are two-toned with half of the pieces light, the other half dark. This set is
more suitable for children, as the Play Cards show the 2-dimensional puzzles on one
side of the card to prepare you for constructing pieces of the 3-dimensional puzzle
on the other side within a given plane

Fifteen Puzzle (ages 8+)
You could spend hours playing with this without getting bored! The Fifteen
Puzzle is a beautiful stainless steel sliding-tile puzzle. Enameled number tiles
(from 1 to 15) are arranged in rows and columns of four on a 2.5"x2.5"
square frame. The empty space allows you to easily slide the tiles around on
the puzzle. Unlike plastic versions, these tiles won't fall
off! The premise of the game is simple. On a piece
of paper, arrange the numbers 1 through 15 in any
pattern in a four by four array. Then, see if you
can reproduce the arrangement on the
puzzle. To get you started, 30 puzzle
challenges are included. The puzzle
comes with its own travel case and provides fun for all ages!
True Colors Mug and Poster
These items feature the names of colors, displayed
in a different color. For example, the word "orange"
is shown in blue. The object is to read down the list
of colors, saying the color that you see, and not the
color that is spelled out to develop thinking with
both the right and left brain simultaneously.
022512 Mug

Twist-Up Crayons (ages 4+)
Absolutely the best twist-up crayons we've tested, these write
smoothly with full, bright colors. The crayon "leads" are not
spring-seated, and they are not
easily breakable, so when you
twist the crayon down, it will stay
at that level (until worn down by
coloring!). Great for travel, the
leads can be twisted back up
into the pen so no marks or
melted crayon will be left on
your seats.

Silky Crayons (ages 4+)
Irresistibly smooth and creamy, Silky
Crayons write as well as their name suggests
and can be used as a crayon, pastel, or watercolor. They glide over paper with the greatest of ease, they blend with the ease of pastels, and if you brush over your drawing with
a wet paintbrush, it gives the effect of watercolors. A diverse and enjoyable drawing
medium that offers something for everyone… and so much fun, you almost feel a little naughty - like you're finally getting to draw with Mom's
lipsticks. Colorix Silky Crayons are basically the same as
Silky Crayons, except they are pointed at the tip, where regular Silky Crayons have a flat top. Both are about the size of a tube
of lipstick, perfect for little hands.

Draw Thumb Art (ages 4+)
Drawing for the Artistically Undiscovered (ages 8+)
Too embarrassed to let anyone see your doodles? Too afraid to even doodle? Then try this one from Klutz! This is not your typical drawing textbook. Starting at the very basics, they wrote it specifically for those who
aren't quite sure which is the "pointy end of the pencil". And in fact, with
the vast space on most pages for you to practice, it's more like a sketchbook.
But, unlike a sketchbook, every page contains amusing art work, useful tips
on technique, and lots of suggestions, drawing starting ideas, and more to
help you fill up all that white space!
How could anyone not be inspired to draw with these cute little books? Each
set includes a spiral-bound book with a sturdy cardboard backing, with a marker and stamp pad mounted beside the book. Each flip of the page reveals a cute
drawing using fingerprints and a few clever marker additions. The rest of the
page is free for you to add your
thumbprint masterpiece. Everyone
can be a "unique" thumbprint artist!

Bonus Bucket of Chalk
(ages 3+)
This fun, square bucket of chalk comes
with 49 pieces of sidewalk chalk and 12
pieces of school chalk. A great variety of
colorful pastel pieces are included in the
set and the chalk easily washes away with
water. The reusable plastic bucket measures 6 ½"x 7"x 5" and the lid snaps on
nicely and a convenient carrying handle is
attached to the bucket.
BloPens (ages 4+)
Blopens Painting with Air Craft Package (ages 4+)
Airbrush meets typical marker in this unique and versatile product. Blopens look a
bit like regular markers inside a plastic casing. But just lightly blow into one side of
the casing, and a light mist of ink sprays out the other end. The ink cannot be
inhaled, so even small children can use these! And, of course, if you get tired of
spraying, you can also draw, write, or paint with these guys. The possibilities are practically limitless. They work really well with stencils, leaving you with a brightly colored, speckled, spattered
image, or you can stagger and overlay them and paint
with different colored Blopens for a really neat look too.
All you need is a little air and an imagination!
Includes three Blopens, stencils, a glitter stick, stickers, and book of
ideas and projects to use with your Blopens.

IlluStory (ages 7+)
Create your own long lasting, professional-looking book! IlluStory contains
non-toxic, washable markers, writing pages, instructions, hints, a story planner,
and a postage paid envelope. Write your story (up to 12 pages, 20 word limit on
each), and illustrate it. When you're finished, mail it to Creations By You (at no
additional charge) for completion and production. They'll typeset and bind your
book, returning a 7”x9” hardcover book that even has a place for dedication and
"About the Author" pages. A great gift idea for parents, grandparents and relatives.
PhotoStory (ages 12+)
Plate Works (ages 6+)
Design your own personalized and break-resistant, dishwasher-safe plastic plate, bowl
or mug with this kit. Kit includes design drawing form, washable markers, and order
forms. Children can use markers or other art supplies to design their own plate, or
they can send in a photo to use instead. A special name or message can even be typeset around the border of the plate, for an extra personal touch. When design is finished, simply send to Creations By You for transformation into a special dish.
The more "adult-geared" version of this product offers a few differences from the junior version, most notably the lack of cute Mrs.
Grossman stickers, and more "adult-friendly" book cover color options.
Like Illustory, you write the text for each page, and decorate the area
around where the photograph will go with washable markers. Print or
digital photos are accepted for placement in the book, and the finished
book will be 8.5"x11" and 15 pages in length with a hardcover binding
(options for longer books are available). The production of your book is
completed in 2-3 weeks. What a neat way to commemorate an event, or
highlight a special person!
PhotoStory Jr. (ages 9+)
This kit is similar to Illustory but also features a few neat options. Like
Illustory, children can write their own text or captions, but they can also
submit photos to have printed on the page. They can also decorate the
page around the photo with markers and the included Mrs. Grossman
stickers. This lets children create a professional-quality book highlighting
a memory, like a scrapbook. Kit includes markers, 168 stickers, tape, and
pages to construct your book. Finished book measures 7"x9" at a standard
length of 15 pages (although additional options are available. Cover photo
and book title are laminated onto your choice of nine cover colors.
Scratch Magic (ages 5+)
Scratch Magic Stickers (ages 5+)
Forget plain white paper! Once you doodle on Scratch Magic paper, nothing else
will seem quite the same! Basically, Scratch Magic papers are multicolored or glittery paper coated with a black layer on top. As you scratch at the top layer, the
colors and glimmer below are revealed to create a unique, colorful etched picture.
A wide variety of Scratch Magic products are available, from packs of different
types of art paper to stickers, journals, photo frames, and more! Use with stencils
for a neat effect, or draw favorite doodles or drawings on it for a beautiful result.

a 5.5" long plastic penholder for better
grip and control and is made from high
carbon steel.

A creative way to leave colorful
notes for anyone. Just scratch your

Twirled Paper (ages 8-15)
Once again, Klutz has impressed us with a new craft
book and kit on a lesser-known, but well-established
craft - paper twirling! To create twirled paper crafts,
you simply curl strips of paper with the twirling wand
and glue them to make assorted objects. We were
amazed by the huge variety of projects that are
included here, such as bug and insect pencil toppers,
birds, fish, letters of the alphabet, and more.
Included in the book/kit are: over 100 multi-colored
paper strips (24"x0.125"), a twirling wand, glue, and
wiggle eyes. Once you master a few simple papertwirling shapes, you are limited only by your imagination!

Book of Artrageous Projects (ages 8+)
If you want to dabble in
the arts, but aren't sure
how to get started, Klutz
has prepared this book just

this hands-on book with
the cooperation of the
Metropolitan Museum of
Art, and it will introduce
the curious dabbler to collage, drawing, watercolor
painting, hieroglyphs, weaving, photography, metal-working, stained
glass, and more all in the enthusiastic and humorous Klutz way. The
pages in the book are meant to be drawn on, scribbled, painted, etc., and
while you will need to provide the art materials, Klutz has thrown in
some unique and hard-to-find materials (such as copper paper and colored sand) with the book as well.
Tissue Paper Flowers (ages 7+)
Surprisingly realistic, these flowers don't need to be watered, will
never wilt, and won't attract bugs! This Klutz book provides
wonderfully written instructions (and pictures, of course!) of
many different gorgeous flowers you can create from tissue paper.

decorations for your room, centerpieces, for gifts, or just for fun!

Watercolor Magic® Paints (ages 6+)
Whenever my siblings and I painted watercolors
years ago, we almost always practically ground the
bristles off our brushes trying to mix just a little of
that stubborn paint cake into the water for a nice,
bright painting! Refreshingly, doing perfectlybright and cheerful watercolor paintings with
Watercolor Magic® paints is anything but
frustrating! Right out of the bottle, these liquid watercolors are bright, bold, and easy to
work with. For lighter colors, or to "stretch"
their usage, just add a bit more water. When
tested with young kids in our family, they overwhelmingly preferred these liquid watercolors to
their own hard-as-a-rock pans of watercolors - and
we're sure the conversion won't take long in your family

Stickers labeled as "realistic" stickers are typically very accurately drawn and beautiful. The "cute" stickers are generally more whimsical, wihle "glitter" stickers have
real glitter to accent the pictures. "Shiny" stickers are neon-colored on a metallic
silver background. The "old-time" stickers have an antique look and use softer
tones. Stickers come in small, 4 ¼"x 5 ¾" books that each contain anywhere from

Balsa Wood Gliders (ages 4+)
Mensa ___ for Kids
We loved these airplane gliders when we were kids; they are amazingly light,
easy-to-construct and most importantly, they fly really well! Similar to styrofoam gliders, these
consist of a few pieces
to snap together and
you’re ready to go!
Jetfire gliders are simpler, consisting of a
body, noseclip, wings,
and a tail, while the
Sky Streak is a bit
more complex (and fun to fly) with a wind-up propeller that connects to a rubber band. Just wind it all the way up, toss it, and it zips across the yard (or living room) with the greatest of ease. Both planes have a 12” wingspan, are ready
to fly in seconds, and the thin balsa wood can be decorated any way you like.

For your little stampers, or anyone who enjoys stamps. These sets include

stamp pad, so you're good to go!

Dull pencils getting you down? Imagine how easy life would be if there

Well, fantasize no more because this light weight, battery powered wonder
sharpens all standard size pencils. Just place four
AA batteries (not included) into the handsized sharpener and you're good to go.
The sharpener includes an easily removable receptacle to collect all those pencil
shavings. Sharpener is safe, as it will not
operate unless the receptacle is firmly in
place. This sharpener is 3.5"x 2"x1" and
comes in assorted neon colors.
Wild Bird Feeder (all ages)
This bird feeder is perfect for the avid bird watcher who likes to feed those hungry winter birds a daily
holiday feast! Best of all, this is likely the most inexpensive bird feeder you'll find. The feeder part is a
plastic tray that screws onto a 2-liter plastic bottle.
Fill the bottle with bird seed, turn it upside down,
and hang in a tree (hanger included), or mount it.

shiny, pointy tips that just invites coloring use. Normally,
once you start coloring, the nice sharp tip is gone
forever, but with this battery-operated, handheld
sharpener, all your has-been crayons with flat
tops can be brought back to life. Sharpener
requires 4 ‘AA’ batteries (not included) to operate. Just snap them in, stick in a crayon, and in
seconds it will have a “just-out-of-the-box” look
again! Definitely a product I wish had been
around during my early years! Colors may vary.

Rosetta Stone Foreign Language Courses (ages 6+)
When you play a game with a world map for a game board, you know
you're going to have to soak up some geography. But will it be fun?
Hmm… maybe if you're commanding a fleet of airplanes and you need
to race all the other players from city to city to complete around-theworld flights! This versatile, multi-level game offers variations for players of all ages and with any degree of geographical knowledge. The goal
is to hop your planes from city to city while first learning basic geography and progressing to flags, area, population, flag, capital city, etc. while
attempting to land at certain cities. Map "game board" measures 24" x
36", and since 2-6 players can compete, the whole family can join in!
009393 24.95
Designed to imitate the way people
learn their native language, The
Rosetta Stone utilizes a well-designed
blend of interactive multimedia technology combined with a total immersion approach to help foreign language learners to really understand the
spoken language - not spend minutes
trying to translate it in their heads.
First students listen to words and
phrases in the foreign language, then
use the selected photos to understand
the meaning of the word. After listening comprehension come excellent speaking, reading and writing exercises, all of
which are done on the computer. Lessons progress in a logical manner, exercises are
made simpler with several features that make typing in the new language easier, and by
removing the "translation" process, students will soon be excited at how soon they will
be "thinking" in their new language! No wonder it is the favorite program of many colleges, universities, the Peace Corps, and even NASA. Level I courses contain 92 lessons
(about 400 hours of learning), and Level II contains 118 lessons. Combo sets are available for some languages which offer both for a reduced price. Each level includes User's
Guide, Curriculum text, application CD-ROM, Student Management System CD-ROM,
Student Management System Manual, Handbook for Teachers, and Workbook (not available in all languages). Spanish I also includes tests and quizzes, as well as a Study Guide;
French and German contain a Study Guide, no tests or quizzes. Sound good, but you
want to be sure? Try out a free demo CD that contains lessons from several languages.

Where in the World? (ages 8+)
Recently re-released by Aristoplay, this classic geography game offers a
variety of game options that are both fun - and really helps geographical
knowledge sink in too! Players can start off slow by playing Crazy
Countries (played like Crazy Eights), to familiarize themselves with different countries.
In Statesman,
Diplomat, and Ambassador games,
players graduate from knowing the
countries to learning their locations,
population, capitals, monetary units, literacy rate, languages,
religions, and even
major exports and
imports. A fun
and enjoyable way
to learn about all
those obscure countries you're not even 100%
sure exist!

*If an item on your order is backordered
Unfortunately, items sometimes go out of stock in our warehouse due to
various reasons. These are temporary backorders and will usually arrive in our
warehouse within one week or so.
Therefore, since we receive stock in from publishers every business day, we
hold orders with backorders for up to a maximum of our listed shipping status
time. If after that time, the backorder item(s) have still not arrived, we ship the
portion of the order that is ready. The backorder item(s) will then be shipped
to you after they arrive to our warehouse.
These temporary backorders are not listed on our website. We currently do
not have the capability of knowing if any item is on temporary backorder when
you make your order until the day after your order is processed in our internal
system and matched with inventory. You can call us at 888-841-3456 to check
to see if any of your items are on the status of backorders the day after your
order is placed.
We do list publisher backorders on our website. These are backorders
where there is some delay by the publisher for various reasons. Orders with
publisher backorders are handled the same way as temporary backorders.
We charge for the entire order up front and then ship backorders with no
additional shipping charge. If you choose to cancel a backorder after your initial order has shipped you can do so and you can also choose how you want the
money for the backorder(s) refunded to you.
An item may sometimes be on a publisher backorder for quite a long time
as publishers change their expected due dates for getting items to us. You can
call or email us at any time to cancel such backorders and receive a refund.
If a publisher decides to stop producing that item that we have listed as a
backorder, then we will automatically cancel that item for you and send you a
refund check.
Backorders will not be cancelled until they are either cancelled by you or we
are notified by the publisher that the item is no longer available.
You may return any item within 30 days from shipping date for a full
refund of the price of the item (shipping not refunded) if we receive the
item back in new condition and it is resalable.
After 30 days, we accept returns if we receive the item back in new condition and the item is resalable, but we charge a 10% restocking fee.
PLEASE NOTE: Orders that qualified for free shipping will be
assessed a shipping charge if the item(s) returned from those orders
cause the original order total to drop below $150.
To avoid damage, avoid using newspaper as your packing material, as
this often leaves ink smears on the books. Also, do not use any of the
books as a flat surface to write return notes or other information on, as
this leaves a permanent etching on the front cover of books.
Items, such as cassettes, CD's, videos, and computer software must be
returned in the original shrink wrap to receive a refund. We do not accept
items for return that we no longer offer for sale.
Wrap and box item securely to avoid damage in transit, put a copy of
the packing slip or receipt in the box, and mark the outside of the package "RETURN" in large letters.
We suggest that you ship your return by UPS or Fed Ex (as it is insured
automatically for up to $100). If you ship through the Post Office, please
insure the package. Please allow 4 to 6 weeks to process your returns and
for us to send your refund.
If you wish to order additional materials after sending in a return, we
advise that you order separately so that the return processing does not
delay your new order..
