On November 21, 2016 a science fair has never been this much fun! Meet the Inventors and Game Rules. Target has played sponsor (alongside long-time partner, Pressman Toy Corp.) to nearly 200 young inventors from across North America at the Chicago Toy & Game Fair’s annual Young Inventor Challenge. The super-creative bunch—ages 6 to 18—dreamed, drew, crafted and pitched their best ideas to toy industry experts, science-fair style. At stake? An incredible chance to bring the winning idea to life, with a little help from Target and Pressman, of course. And these talented kids were on the top of their game. But one stood out among the rest: “Ship of Treasures,” created by Illinois fourth-graders Olivia Wasilewski and Brynna Siewers (pictured below with Mark Thoma, senior buyer, Toys, Target and Jeff Pinsker, president, Pressman Toys). “This is the first time we invented a game,” said Olivia, who created “Ship of Treasures” with Brynna for a school project. “Everyone in our grade likes pirates and treasure hunts, so we know the suspense of the game will be fun,” added Brynna. And their adventure has just begun. Olivia and Brynna embarked on the mentorship of a lifetime—worked hand-in-hand with experts from Target and Pressman on prototypes, packaging and more to perfect “Ship of Treasures,” and ultimately debut it at Target on October 1, 2017. As part of their Grand Prize Olivia and Brynna got to travel to New York in February of this year to take part in WIT Annual Gala (Women in Toys Industry) and to visit the New York Toy and Game Fair (children are not allowed for buyer and sellers only) and visited Target Headquarters in Minneapolis, MN couple months ago.

The game is for 2-4 players, ages 8 and up. You may now purchase it at your local Target store or on-line for only $24.99. Buy at Target.com

We are also every excited to announce that percentage of the girls’ proceeds will go to Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital in memory of their classmate Sofie Shields who passed away last year.

Girls were also recently mentioned in Forbes Magazine:  Ship of Treasures in Forbes.
