New Exhibit at TCMU Challenges Children with Games of Skill, Chance and Strategy
Exhibit Created and Built by TCMU that Highlights Local Toy and Game Inventors
GREENVILLE, SC – May 16, 2016 - The Children's Museum of the Upstate (TCMU), a leader in innovative family activities and dynamic learning, is pleased to announce a new exhibit opening May 28, 2016 through September 5, 2016. The exhibit, called Fun & Games, features new and traditional games created to teach children vocabulary, problem solving, math, counting, critical thinking and pattern recognition. It will give museum guests interactive learning experiences, allowing them to:
Play giant replicas of favorite games, such as Jenga and checkers
Learn the rules, origins and histories of beloved games and activities
Create new games with their own rules
Enjoy game tables with family and friends
The new exhibit, which is created and built by TCMU, will be housed on the third floor
of the museum. It will also feature a “make your own” game area inspired by local inventors, Dave Yearick and Kristin Miller Burrell. Redonkulary, a game invented by Burrell, gives kids more than 200,000 possible word combinations with endless definitions, resulting in a hilarious and nonsensical word game. Yearick’s game, called Djubi, is described as the “ultimate game of catch” that features a sling-shot attached to a mini-lacrosse stick to give kids a hands-on play experience. Both games are representative of the breadth and depth of activities the exhibit will offer to guests.
TCMU President and CEO, Nancy Halverson, is excited to announce the newest exhibit, noting, “The Fun & Games exhibit gives our guests the chance to have fun while they learn, especially as they explore new and traditional games that offer multiple STEM-inspired learning components.” She also remarks that each changing exhibit gives museum guests something out of the ordinary, adding, “TCMU’s rotating exhibits give museum guests and members the opportunity to glean new experiences during museum visits, because they offer fresh programming and activities that differ from the permanent exhibits they are familiar with.”
The exhibit is free with admission. For information about location, hours and admission rates, visit www.tcmupstate.org.

Listen to my interview with Mike Switzer, host of the South Carolina Business Review on SCETV public radio (http://etvradio.org/post/lawyer-leaves-firm-word-games) to hear the story behind the low-tech boredom buster, Redonkulary! Redonkulary is an outrageously funny, interactive, engaging, and intelligent word game for players of all ages.
Redonkulary, a hilarious word game for all ages, is the first product that I created and brought to market. I learned a lot as a first-time inventor. This article by my friend and consultant, Ryan Hamilton, discusses some inventor takeaways: Redonkulary! - A Client Success Story.
