Just in time for the Holidays: Dysfunctional Family Bingo


As some of you may know, I'm senior designer at Knock Knock, where we create and sell a bunch of stuff that we like to think is either useful, entertaining or both. I am literally fighting back the urge to pimp all of the stuff I designed, but I'm going to show some restraint and only post once in a while and focus on stuff that's pertinent to (a) Dopers and/or (b) current events / time of the year.

I will say that in general, our stuff is interesting and unusual: great for stocking stuffers and folks who are just hard to shop for...

So anyway, I'd like to present to you: Dysfunctional Family Bingo! More fun than tuning out, you can call it like you see it: sibling rivalry, hormonal imbalance, questionable parenting? Bingo!

That looks cool! And this is precisely what we envisioned threads in SDMB Marketplace looking like.

There is all kinds of nifty stuff on his web site. I like some of the little notepads and stickies. Look like good stocking stuffers!

This is the first I'm hearing of you designing for KnockKnock. I'm a fan! I keep looking at it as a possible line for my store, but more because I want half the stuff than because I think my customers will.

Thanks to all the Dopers for their kind words. Accolades are like manna for creative types and getting it from this discerning community is doubly sweet.

I NEED this. Not just want, but NEED, to survive my dysfunctional family this holiday season.

We just found out this lil' bingo set (among some of our other stuff) is going to be on "Today Weekend" (Sun. 12/12) and "Daytime" (12/11) as part of their gift guide!

Granted, it's not like I myself am going on national TV, but having my work on is like the next best thing and I'm kind of sitting here finding it hard to concentrate on my day's deadlines for thinking about it.

That is, providing it doesn't get cut.

I placed an order for the bingo game. It will be perfect for the Christmas party! I hope it gets here in time.

That's actually one of my favorite pieces as well — one that got for myself. EOD, I'd say that ideating products like this is one of our greatest core competencies.
