ThinkFun Celebrates Four Toy of the Year Award Nominations!

Alexandria, VA (November 19, 2012) - ThinkFun®, Inc., the world's leading developer of addictively fun games that sharpen your mind, proudly announces it has received four nominations for the prestigious 2013 Toy of the Year Awards, well-known as the “Oscars” of the toy industry. Toy of the Year Awards are issued by the Toy Industry Association in concert with consumer, media and industry support. This year yielded a record number of submissions.


“We are thrilled with the nominations of these great games!” said Andrea Barthello, ThinkFun Co-founder and COO. “We care so deeply about making games that hit the sweet spot between outrageous fun and brain power, and it is an honor to see our passion recognized and celebrated.”


Nominated ThinkFun games include:


Roll & Play, Ages 18 months – 3 years, MSRP $19.99

* Nominated Infant/Toddler Toy of the Year

* Nominated Educational Toy of the Year

The first game ever designed for toddlers, Roll & Play is hours of get-up-and-move fun! Toddlers adore the soft, plush cube, and parents love seeing their little learners exercise their minds and motor skills through active play.


Zingo! Sight Words, Ages 4-7, MSRP $19.99

* Nominated Educational Toy of the Year

Patterned after the much-lauded Zingo! (Bingo with a Zing!), Zingo! Sight Words ignites a passion for reading among the younger set, teaching them to recognize and read common words in the English language that educators consider the most fundamental.


Swish, Ages 8+, MSRP $12.99

* Nominated Innovative Toy of the Year

Featuring cool transparent cards, Swish challenges mental muscles to the extreme! Players rely on spatial awareness as they envision flipping and rotating the see-through cards to sync balls with hoops of the same color.
