What We Do...
I'm John Hinnen . . . a designer, a doodler and inventor. We hatch ideas. From sketch book to production, our startup in Peoria, Illinois is dedicated to bringing you original family friendly products with a focus on creating joy through play!
HOLIDAY CIRCLE®, is an unusually fun deck of playing cards. We created all the artwork and original games! Also pictured on this page is our patented 3-in-1 toy ball, the BANDIT BALL®. This cool toy has delighted thousands but is not currently on the market.
On the planning board in 2023 are several new original concepts. These are drawing board models we hope they'll make it to market! One thing is for sure. Our motto "Play Fun ... Live Happy" describes all we do.
Holiday Circle is our original playing card deck. The inspiration for this fun product came while playing poker with friends some years ago. Why not make a deck for Easter, Halloween, Thanksgiving & Christmas! So we did!
My First Patent #4,545,768 in 1985. The sundawg discovery center was developed with my wife, Nancy, as a learning environment for 4 through 8-year-old children.
Game Time Any Time!
Holiday Circle is a great new deck of playing cards. Kids of all ages will enjoy the colorful Bunnies, Jack-O-Lanterns, Turkeys and Santas that make up the four traditional suits of the deck.
There are reasons this new Sundawg product has received many 5-star ratings. Poker quality cards and fun, hand drawn artwork are just a couple.
"Jack Stacks" and "Happy Holidays", our two original games, have become a game night hit!
