at my house....not in general because none of these toys make noise or are marketed with a tv show or movie.
Solving Path - fun for the entire family. On Thanksgiving (which was a huge 18-person success), even the sullen teenagers and slightly tipsy adults played.
Wedgits - which I just played with for a few peaceful minutes and found enthralling. You can buy them here or here.
And lastly, Magna Tiles which were also a lot of fun.
The phoen just rang. An old co-worker of mine died at work on Thanksigiving. I have to run to the funeral home now.
