Holiday Gift Ideas from ThinkFun!

Looking for a fun and creative puzzle for someone on your Holiday shopping list? Stenzzles is the product! We received the Stenzzles Dogs from our friends at ThinkFun. It also comes in Sports. This is great for ages 8 to Adult and is for a single player. Build stylish images and engage the creative side of your brain with this artistic layering puzzle. You can rotate, layer, and stack the colorful Stenzzles cards together until the image exactly matches the challenge. These puzzles are as striking as they are clever and make great gifts for kids and adults alike. I love that it also includes a booklet with 8 challenges and solutions. This is a lot of fun for my 9 year old! He loves being creative and likes puzzles so he really liked using the booklet to complete the challenges. Retails for $6.44 at

Mini Mouth is best for ages 8 to Adult and is for 2 or more players. This is a fast-paced word race that is easy to take anywhere. This simple, creative, and fun game tests players speed ad vocabulary as they compete to collect the most tiles by being the first to use the letters in a word. It’s great brain-building fun in a portable package. It includes 26 Letter Tiles (Ato Z) and a Game-Go Bag. My son and I tried it out and it really is a fast-paced fun game that can really help kids with building their vocabulary. I also homeschool and found this to be an educational and fun way to work on spelling and vocabulary. It’s also great on family game nights and for using during school time. I like that it gets us really thinking of new words. Retails for $5.99 at

UNHINGED is another one for ages 8+ and is for a single player. Looking for a game to keep your child entertained and challenged? This diabolical brainteaser will have your brain flipping and twisting. Twist and turn the 10 hinged hexagons in this unique puzzle to match each of the 40 included challenges. Yes, 40! Once you get your hands on it, this manipulative puzzle is impossible to put down. This one has 4 challenge levels from beginner to expert. I love that it has the different levels. My son & I spent at least a hour playing this one. It really is a brainteaser and it’s different than many puzzle toys out there. The idea is really a simple one, you just fold the hexagons and make the patterns in the booklet. There are different challenges and it is just simply fun! Retails for $13.76 at this holiday season!
