The Rush Hour logic puzzle from ThinkFun has been challenging players for more than 25 years. In fact, Rush Hour has been voted one of the best 25 toys of the past 25 years by the nonprofit Parents’ Choice Foundation. The idea is to slide the blocking vehicles in such a way so that the path is clear for the red car to exit the game board. Sounds simple enough, but after trying it ourselves we can attest to the skill and smarts needed to free the car from its gridlocked position. Get one for $20, then challenge yourself and family and friends to solve one of 40 different configurations. Check with your local toy outlet, or order online at
