They grow up so fast!

ThinkFun’s unofficial mascot came in for a visit yesterday…

Ramsey is right at home at ThinkFun HQ

 

Ramsey spent his puppyhood in ThinkFun offices (the carpets have since been replaced!), and we are so proud of the big, brainy dog he has become!

August 2010 - Ramsey the puppy has excellent taste in carrying cases!

Fun fact – Did you know Ramsey was recently immortalized in ThinkFun’s newest dog-themed Stenzzles game!?  This great new layering puzzle features several pups from the ThinkFun family… click here to meet them all!

Meet the Top Dogs at ThinkFun!

The humans here at ThinkFun are thrilled about the release of our newest dog-themed brainteaser Stenzzles, but no one is more excited than the furry stars themselves!  Also available in Tropical and Sports themes, Stenzzles is an innovative new puzzle that challenges players to replicate a colorful image by layering cards in the correct order and orientation.

When looking for the perfect models for the Dog Collection, we decided to go with local talent.  Five of the pups featured in this new game are members of the ThinkFun family, and I’m thrilled to introduce them here!

Ramsey the Labrador has been part of the ThinkFun family since his puppy days!  Here he is only weeks old…

Take your pup to work day!

Weighing in at 102 pounds, Cargo the American Bulldog has brains AND brawn!

Solitaire Chess gives me a headache!

Meet Akira the Akita – this is a dog with serious fashion sense!

Akira knows better than to chew on a designer ThinkFun shoe!

Ready for another fun fact?!  Stenzzles was invented by Ron Dubren… also the inventor of Tickle Me Elmo!  In this post you can see Ron with a prototype of the game at Toy Fair in February.

We love seeing photos of YOUR playful pups too! Please email your pictures to info@thinkfun.com and we’ll add them to our online album!

Meet the brains behind the games!

This year’s Toy Fair was the best in ThinkFun’s 26 year history at the show – certainly the best of the 3 years I’ve been attending!  With 9 rocking new products and a fantastic message to spread to the world about the power of healthy, fun brain play, ThinkFun’s booth was mobbed from opening to close each day.  The entire team ended the week with raspy voices from countless game demos and sore wrists from writing so many orders – both excellent problems to have :)

Among the wonderful visitors we welcomed to our booth were several of the inventors behind our new games!

A few highlights:

Ron Dubren - Inventor of Stenzzles

Patrick Matthews - Inventor of Distraction

Bill Ritchie - Inventor of Roll & Play

Steve Hayton, inventor of Turnstile

Joyce Johnson - Inventor of Cartoon It!
