A Live Display!

Here's our boy...
singing and playing the piano like nobody's business...
right in the front window of "Planet Mind"
in the Kokomo mall.


It caused quite the commotion to passersby!



He adores this piano.
(Made by Melissa and Doug... it really works!
Children can "read" the music book that it
comes with... color-coded notes match the colors
above the piano keys.
Priced at $99.)

Stop in and let your little one give it a try!

What's In Ned's Head?

Okay... for all you refined and sophisticated types out there...
this game is NOT for you!

However........

"What's In Ned's Head?" is great for a family game night.
It is simple enough for a 4-year-old, and funny enough for an 11-year-old. Fun for girls, gross enough for boys! Each player has to use their sensory skills (no visual allowed!) to reach into Ned's Head and find the item that is on their card.

Whoever finds their item first, wins!

I'm positive you will have many game nights filled with laughter!
(Available now at Planet Mind,
located in the Kokomo Mall.)

Pass the Pigs!

Here's a game you can find at Planet Mind..

nostalgic yet modern,
fun and educational,
simple or complex,
for young or old!!!

Recently, a customer came in and spotted this game on our shelf.
She was so excited to find that it was still around...
being one of her favorites from childhood.

It is described as being similar to Yahtzee. You toss the pigs and look for combinations of patterns. (Example: Throw the pigs and see how many are belly up, right-side up, or upside-down... earning points for certain combinations.)

Perfect for teachers teaching patterns, addition, subtraction, fractions, etc.

Great, also, for family game-night at home
(Yahtzee that EVERYONE can grasp!).

Excellent for after-school programs, daycare centers,
and office waiting rooms.

Come check it out at Planet Mind today!
(Located in the Kokomo Mall.)
