Sign up to receive our newsletter with Thunkies activities
The Thunkies are friendly cartoon characters that represent the key faculties of thinking. Drawn from 40 years of research, they introduce children to effective problem-solving through play, story-telling, games, and a whole host of other activities
A hammer is for banging in anything that needs to be secured. A sharp knife is for cutting whatever needs to be severed or cut out. Like the physical tools we use, each Thunkie is a tool for your mind, a specific mental action that will achieve a definite result.
We all use the same mental tools, though we are not always aware of them. What’s special about the Thunkies is that parents and children can play with them. Together you learn how to think better assisted by the weekly Thunkies activities.
