New product highlights:
Rush Hour® Deluxe Edition
A winner of 20 awards, Rush Hour® continues to be one of ThinkFun's most popular and renowned mind-challenging games. In honor of Rush Hour's 10 years of success, ThinkFun is celebrating with a Deluxe Edition that is guaranteed to delight seasoned Rush Hour® fans and newcomers alike.
Just like the traditional game, the object is to put your problem-solving skills in gear to help the red car escape the traffic jam. But Rush Hour® Deluxe Edition has been revved up for maximum performance, featuring 60 of ThinkFun's best challenges and five levels of play. Complete with a modern design, bright metallic cars and a collector's gift box for easy travel, Rush Hour® Deluxe Edition is the perfect holiday gift for kids who are ready to test their skills behind the wheel.

Ages: 8 and Up; MSRP: $19.99
Sudoku Jr. 4X4™
This ever-popular game of logic and reasoning has become a worldwide favorite. Now ThinkFun has created a unique version designed especially for younger Sudoku fans.
The game play is similar to classic Sudoku; the object is to fill the grid with numbered tokens, but each row and column can only contain one instance of each number. For an added twist, ThinkFun has created shorter challenges and color-coded regions that help kids become familiar with Sudoku play. Sudoku Jr. 4X4™ includes 48 kid-friendly challenges with solutions and 16 oversized, brightly colored tokens made specifically for a younger audience.
Featuring a magnetic game board and tokens for easy travel, this compact mind-challenging game allows kids to pick the right numbers for success. Sudoku Jr. 4X4™ can be purchased at select independent toy and gift stores, select national retailers and www.ThinkFun.com.
Ages 5 to 7; MSRP: $9.99

Rush Hour® Deluxe Edition and Sudoku Jr. 4X4™ are no exception, proudly joining the Marvel™ Heroes and Sudoku 5X5™ products launched earlier this year.
