Will the Real STEM Toys Please Stand Up



Winner of 19 Prestigious Awards! A best-selling mind puzzle past and present!

Bumper to bumper excitement that's jam-packed with challenge...4 big rig trucks, 11 compact cars. Your speedy red sports car stuck in the gridlock.

Your desire to do anything else comes to a screeching halt when you attempt to unsnarl the traffic challenges in Rush Hour and make your "full speed ahead" escape.

A flashy red sports car, (that's you-naturally), is stuck in a meddle of 4 big rig trucks and 11 compact cars. Do you curse, break into a sweat, give up, give in to the pressure? Noooo Waayyyy!! Sliding colorful blocks-you rev cars & trucks forward, backward. Shifting the vehicle positions and weakening the gridlock...until Phheww! Freedom on the open road! ( and IF you're in a brain jam...hopelessly halted, there will be no citing for traffic violations - just dump out the pieces and start again!)

Better than a brain teaser, Rush Hour is a premier sliding block puzzle designed to challenge your sequential thinking skills. Start simple with Level 1 puzzles and by the time you hit Level 4, you'll be hitting the high road with handling expertise in problem solving.

Paving the way for whole family fun, this set includes 40 challenge cards from Beginner to Expert (Rush Hour is designed to challenge all skill levels.) 16 Cars, 1 Grid Tray for play with a neat pull-out tray for easy storage.

The genius who invented the game is Nob Yoshigahara, a world-renowned inventor of puzzles. Now, Nob may have dealt with his share of "What was that name again?", but believe us...people recognize his best selling games. Rush Hour is such a run-away favorite it's now available in Rush Hour Jr., Railroad, and Safari Editions.

Keep Rush Hour tucked under your coffee table and you'll keep a freeway of fun at everyone's fingertips.

    My grandson thinks about the solution to the game and then proceeds to solve it. It makes him think. He loves playing with this one!

    My rating of Rush Hour
    Posted 3/26/2014 by Cathy Donahue

    My 5 year old grandson liked it as did my 7 year old granddaughter. It was difficult for that age so they enjoyed looking at the backside of the cards. The 7 year old made it through 13 cards in one sitting and the 5 year old did 8 cards.
