Think-Ets Memory Toy

Think-ets are a fascinating new toy/game for creative kids. Each pouch contains 15 tiny trinkets that can be used in any way you see fit. You can use them as accessories for dolls, you can lay them out and then try to remember what sequence they were in, you can make up intricate histories for each item…anything you want.



I love the fact that the Think-ets pouch fits into a shirt pocket, so you can take it anywhere. I whipped it out at a restaurant where Roo was growing tired of scribbling on a menu with crayons. She loved poring through the bag and assigning values to each item and telling us about them. She is obsessed with treasure these days, so it definitely played into that. Her favorites were the microscopic potato masher and sombrero. Her daddy likes the real working pliers. (Big surprise!) I liked the itty bitty book. And the fact that everything made it back into the bag. Apparently, tiny=precious, so Think-ets are safe from the usual preschooler destruction.



Obviously, Think-ets are not for kids who tend to stick everything in their mouths. Roo was quick to point out that they were much too small for Jasper to play with and volunteered to confiscate them if they should fall into his grasp. Nice big sister. If your child needs to be told how to play, Think-ets would probably not entertain them for long, but if you have an imaginative kid, they are a lot of fun.
