I love, love, love this! I keep berating myself for having not conjured it up in one of my brainstorming sessions (honestly I am still hopeful that one day I will invent the next ‘lego’). In the meantime, I just marvel at gems like these… it reminds me that the simplest of ideas are the best — a game powered by imagination rather than a USB cable! Think-ets is so simple in concept — a little pouch of random, very charming ‘trinkets’ from around the world. Along with the pouch comes rules for a few games, such as “I’ll take one away, and you tell me which one is missing”, or “Make a story about the item you’re holding” — educational in so many ways, inspiring story-telling, testing memory and just fun for kids to fiddle with.
The idea is to keep the pouch handy in your handbag or car so that when you need something to entertain or pass the time, you have them on hand. I imagine they would be perfect for taking with you on travel, while waiting for that elusive waiter or in waiting rooms — anywhere kids get antsy, bored or wound-up! Oh… and no two sets are alike so they can be collected and even swapped! I can so imagine my kids loving this. You can order them online; worldwide shipping available. Just click here.
