"Our most pleasant memories of childhood games are of those times when fellow players
were gracious and generous while being competitive and doing their best. Children
who master these complex emotional skills generally do well in sports, school and
in professional life. Briarpatch games are a step along that path.
We invite you to enjoy Briarpatch games with your child and we wish you many hours
of family game time for years to come."
— Martine Redman Donofrio
Briarpatch has been an innovator in the development of games and puzzles for children
of all ages since its inception in 1992. Its founders, a husband and wife team,
John Donofrio and Martine Redman, created their first game prototype with a pair
of scissors, some glue and passion for creating quality products based on classic
literature. Today, Briarpatch maintains an inspiring, fun, and educational product
line and is a highly respected leader in the toy industry.
Briarpatch has received more than 300 awards for product excellence, including: Dr
Toy, Oppenheim Platinum and Gold Seal awards, Parents' Choice Foundation, National
Association of parenting Publications, and Parents Magazine's Best Toy awards, among
