John Forbes Nash, Jr: 1928-2015

Never met the man.  But was inspired by him.  His writings on game theory were the basis for the thought nugget that became the game Coopetition.

O Canada

Just wanted to send a quick shout-out to all our retailers and customers in Canada.  Glad to know so many people are having a good time with the game Stumblebum.  The winters must get pretty cold up there.  Even colder I imagine than in Minnesota.  It’s always nice to warm-up with a good game and a group of friends or family.

Big E Toys Named Power Player by Toy Industry Foundation

Big E Toys was recently named a 2009 Power Player by the Toy Industry Foundation (TIF) for its ongoing philanthropic support of the TIF Toy Bank.

Despite our relatively small size and general lack of excess inventory, Big E Toys has been a proud supporter of the Toy Bank since its inception in 2003. We have donated games to the Toy Bank each year for distribution to children and families in need across the United States. With the assistance of the Toy Industry Foundation Toy Bank we have been able to distribute games to people in need that we wouldn’t have otherwise been able to identify. The giving programs created by the Toy Bank have been outstanding. I’d encourage any and all toy companies, big and small to participate in their efforts. We look forward, in the coming years, to growing our charitable giving through the TIF.

2009 Another Great Year for Stumblebum

A big THANK YOU goes out to all our Stumblebum® customers and retailers.  2009 was another great year for the game.  As has been the case each year since the game was introduced on a limited basis a few years ago, Stumblebum sold out in 2009.  In fact, inventory dried up even earlier than expected during this past holiday season and we were actually unable to supply games to some of our retail partners.  Although I am extremely pleased with the reception Stumblebum continues to garner (anyone that’s played the game knows it’s great fun), I apologize for not being able to fulfill every order. 

With virtually no Stumblebum inventory to speak of, Big E Toys is provided a unique opportunity to do some very special things in 2010.  In addition to a redesign of the Stumblebum box, plans are being developed for a unique charitable program to be launched in the coming months.  Stay tuned.

Thank you for your continued support.

New “Emotional Nutrition” Label for Stumblebum

These days, everybody can use a little fun in their lives. And what could be more fun than having a few laughs with friends or family? Take a look at the new Emotional Nutrition label on the charades-based game Stumblebum and you might be surprised just how much fun and laughter can be packed into a little box.

Of course, the Stumblebum Emotional Nutrition label can’t possibly reflect the actual fun and laughter any individual might derive from the game. But that’s not really the point. Studies have shown that laughter and humor can have a positive affect on our mental and physical lives. It seems so obvious, yet many of us don’t always make time for fun and laughter. Now is the time though. So get yourself a Stumblebum game today. And make sure to get a couple for your friends and family members. Stumblebum makes a great gift. Your lives will be better for it! BUY NOW!
