    CATS & KITTENS: A MEMORY GAME (May) asks players to reunite mature cats with their kittens in an adorable matching game that doubles as an education in feline breeds.  

    MAKE YOUR OWN FARM (Mar) is a charming pop-out play set for young children. The kit includes 55 pieces ranging from a barn and farm equipment to the many animals and humans who reside on a farm. No scissors or glue required for assembly.

    MANIFESTO: THE ART MOVEMENTS GAME (May) calls on knowledge of popular art movements to match four influential artist cards with their associated moments including Pop, Cubism, Dadaism, and ten others.

    PICK A FLOWER: A MEMORY GAME (Mar) is a beautiful boxed game for nature lovers, where players pair up flowers with their typical uses and meanings, such as giving roses for Valentine’s Day.

    SUPERHERO SNAP! CARD GAME (Feb) is a superhero-themed cousin of slapjack starring the heroes and villains of illustrator Jason Ford’s fantastic superhero universe.

    THE MYSTERY MANSION: STORYTELLING CARD GAME (Feb) is a simple, story-constructing game based on the Victorian parlor tradition of myrioramas. Oversized cards are placed one after another to create seamless scenes with infinite narratives, this time centered on an old manor house and featuring Art Deco motifs.

    HELLO NATURE ACTIVITY CARDS (Apr) takes projects from Nina Chakrabarti’s acclaimed activity book of the same name and puts them in an easy to carry deck full of inspiration for trips to the park, garden, forest, and beach.

    MONSTERS! A SCARY TOP SCORE GAME (May) pits oddball monsters against each other by comparing scores in categories including stinkiness, scariness, horrible habits, mischievousness, and love of sweets.

    ONCE UPON A TIME… A FAIRYTALE TOP SCORE GAME (May) stages the ultimate fairytale battle as players cast 30 magical characters into battle grading them on bravery, mischievousness, kissability, fashion sense, and wickedness. 

    TERRIFIC TIMELINES: DINOSAURS (Mar) is a new, original timeline format designed to showcase visual evolution, beginning with everyone’s favorite prehistoric beasts. Each dino has its own factfile and press-out model to add to your display. Fun for play or dressing up a bookshelf!

    TERRIFIC TIMELINES: CARS (May) follows later in the spring and shows how the automobile has shifted gears throughout history. Can you arrange the cars in the correct chronology?
