Sandor Weisz is the Commissioner of The Mystery League, a company in Chicago that makes puzzles and games, mostly for corporate team-building. He has been making puzzles and games since he was a teenager. He publishes puzzles daily on his Twitter account and weekly on his newsletter. Sandor lives in Chicago with his wife and two kids.
As a puzzle maker and father, we knew Sandor would have some awesome suggestions for other families of kids ages 5-10. With his suggestions, jookie has put together a Game Pack Giveaway just in time for holiday travels. Whether you’re driving 30 minutes or on the plane for 3 hours, this game pack will help keep the kiddos occupied!

We’re excited to announce a great holiday promotion we’re offering with Timeless Toys and Timeless Tots!
To encourage our community to shop locally to support the many wonderful, independently owned stores we have here in Lincoln Square, you can receive a $400 gift certificate to jookie if you spend $350 at Timeless Toys or Timeless Tots between now and December 24th.
And here are the wonderful participants of Day 2 of the photo fundaiser! We are still processing the last orders but will aim to make our official donation to The Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights within a week. We know it was over $3000! Again, high fives all around to these youngin’s and their awesome parents.
Here are the fabulous participants of Day 1 of our 13th annual photo fundraiser. A big hug and high five to each and every one of them!
I could not be more excited to be hosting a MODEL SEARCH for Timeless Tots for a jookie display at their new fabulous clothing & accessories boutique! This is coming at a really busy time in jookie land but I couldn’t pass up a fun opportunity like this. PLUS, it’s happening during Apple Fest so it’ll be twice the awesomeness.
Some of this collaboration is getting figured out as we go along so please be patient as we work out the details. What we know so far:
SAVE THE DATE: Friday, Oct 26th and Saturday, Oct 27th for our 13th annual Halloween Photo Fundraiser!
This year we’re continuing our fundraising efforts from last last year for The Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights.
We will be offering advanced sign-up again this year, probably about one week ahead of time. We’ll email to everyone on our e-newsletter list so be sure to add your name to that to be the first to know when the advanced sign-up goes live.
Our Fall Mailer went out this week! The instructions were enclosed to make these fun hopping, origami guinea pigs, but if you need to print more, click here to download or print a PDF of our jookie jumper.
It doesn’t get much easier than this… we’re going to send out a Lucky 13th Bonus Day email on Wednesday, August 15th. It’ll ask a question for anyone interested in winning the 13th Day session offering. Simply reply to the question, and you will be entered to win.
But of course, you need to be signed up for our jookie e-newsletter so if you’re not, here is the quick and easy sign-up here.
Welcome to the twelfth and FINAL day of The Twelve Days of jookie! The jookie bells will strike at midnight Sunday, August 12th, and the twelve-tide will conclude. You have the next 15ish hours to add in your comments on any of the 12 days if you haven’t already.
This session is for any SOLO kid age 13 to 19. It may also be used as a Senior Portrait Session, or for a recent high school grad who didn’t have senior portraits taken before they graduated. This special session is great at boosting a teen’s confidence and helping them see how awesome they are inside AND out.
Welcome to the penultimate (I love when I get to use that word!) and ELEVENTH day of The Twelve Days of jookie!
for a chance to win a Weekday Session at your favorite playground (a $390 value) PLUS a $150 portrait credit to create some striking, artsy photographs for your home, tell us what is your favorite art or home decor that you have bought or been given for your home.
A tweak wood armoire with the most incredible design, a Chilhuly-esque lighting fixture, a one-of-a-kind artisan vase given on your wedding day, eclectically patterned wallpaper, an Ed Paschke or Wesley Willis drawing… What things (besides your kiddos!) have you decorated with to make your home special to you?
