Welcome to The Idea Emporium,
An Imaginary Mall (activity book with companion e-learning)
Helping Kids Better Problem Solve and Think Out of a Box

Now is the time for Think Out of the Box Solutions!


Do you suffer from Stuck in the Hole Thinking? It can cause rashes, insomnia, headaches, frowns, and the dreaded Tunnel Vision. What is Stuck in the Hole Thinking, you ask? When faced with a problem you can’t solve, do you give up? See from the viewpoint of the hole in the floor and only see the walls inside the hole? Your thoughts speak of how it can’t work, it won’t work, with no solutions offered, only seeing problems.  


A visit to the Idea Emporium is your cure! There’s a magical mall with its entrance set almost hidden in an abandoned mall. It's a place where new solutions are born. I’m Ronni, the Manager of the Idea Emporium. I visited one day and the crows convinced me I was desperately needed, so I never left. Now I can share its wonder and magic with others who need it. 

(Incidentally, the Idea Emporium was born from my Master's thesis work in Design & Creative Thinking meets e-learning interactions.)

The Playhouse in the Idea Emporium puts on frequent shows. It's not MacBeth but it's usually worth a giggle or two.

Butterfly Wings are on sale today in the Nursery.

That sly little devil. He escaped this morning from the Invention Room.

Let's watch a typical day in the Idea Emporium Bakery.

Try a challenge. Help with the bunny problem!
