Our Favorite Summer Activities

A Mighty Fun! List of Our Favorite Summer Activities Nothing beats summer break when you're a child. The unstructured days spent playing with friends or lying in the warm grass getting lost in your favorite book are what childhood memories are made of. Here’s a list of some of our family’s favorite summertime activities.   Backyard Camping When our children were really little we introduced them to camping by pitching the tent in our backyard. The kids set up their own sleeping areas and brought all of their favorite stuffed animals inside. We made dinner “campside”, explored the yard at night with flashlights and, for the first time ever, they actually slept in past 8am! Oh, the magic of sleeping...

The Making Of A Mischief Maker

A LOOK INTO THE PROCESS All Mischief Maker slingshots are made in our Portland, Oregon shop by Mighty Fun! They are a modern take on a truly classic toy, the slingshot. The kind of toy that brings out the kid in all of us. Here is a look into how they are made. "Wouldn't It Be Cool...." It all started with the desire to make a slingshot. We wanted to design one that offered great performance but also referenced the nostalgia of wooden slingshots of the past while making it ourselves, so we did a little brainstorming and sketching.   Non-Toxic Wood = It's a Winner We sourced the best materials. North American harvested Maple wood comes to us from...

If we had a horn, we’d be tooting it right about now. Toot! Why? Because Brain Freeze was named Best Children's Game of the Year for 2016 by GameBoyGeek!

MIGHTY FUN! featured in 1859 Magazine's Made in Oregon Gift Guide

The holiday season is nearly here and that! As a toy and gift company, this is our favorite time of year. And it's also the busiest! Of course, that's the case with most folks - hectic holiday schedules often leave little time to give those shopping duties the ample time needed to really find that perfect gift or two (or three). That's one of the reasons we love holiday gift guides. Such a great shortcut to lead you to the cool stuff you can get and give that will make your gifts stand out and be really appreciated. And that's the goal, right? I'll admit, I'm a horrible last-minute shopper and it drives me crazy. I need my gift guides...
