Age: 8 and up (due to small size of pieces)
Think-ets is an amazing game for creative storytelling and many other easy-to-learn games. Take 15 tiny treasures from all over the world and use them 10 different ways, including for hilarious storytelling, mind-bending memory games and even a challenging strategy game. Think-ets is ideal for home, restaurants, waiting rooms or pool-sides.
Each of the differently colored pouches has a different set of trinkets. The Teacher Edition contains the trinkets from the green and red pouches together with a much more detailed activity book.
"The memory game and its variants are a favorite of mine from the "jewel game" in Kipling's Kim - dreadfully racist in the casual Brit style, but still a treasured book from my childhood. Your sets of objects are perfectly suited to an introduction to that game. I think the purchase was one of the best toy buys I have made. The "story creation" games are the hot item right now with our girls. A perfect activity for empowering their senses of self worth and creative freedom. As you are well aware, a central virtue of your product is the range of activities it offers."
–George Hersh, Grandfather
“I would love to buy them for all my nieces and nephews. It’s great for stimulating their imaginations to prosper and grow!”
–Linda Tate, PhD, author, literature professor
“Think-ets are fun and a great way to start conversations with your children. You can play the games suggested or design your own. The possibilities are endless. Once you get started you won't want to stop playing, and neither will your kids. This simple special product by virtue of its intrinsic play value will take you back to a time when people really played with and talked to their kids.”
–Lynn Rosenblum, President, Toy Power Consulting
“All three of my children ages 12, 9 & 7 love the game. Also anyone I introduce it to does as well. I have fun making up stories with the pieces and also just holding and looking at them. We have five sets & plan to buy more as gifts.”
–Noelle Southwick, mother
“I started using Think-ets in my English classroom last year in the spring to practice test taking
skills. We are preparing to use them as story starters this year. We love them.”
–Linda Woodward, Flatwoods Elementary School, Jonesville, Virginia
