Too Much Fun? Impossible!
Kid Reporter. Thinga likes to stay busy, whether we're interviewing the lead performer in Cirque Du Soleil, hanging with the Sugar Plum Fairy, or visiting an artist's Kaleidoscope Factory! Kid Reporter is on the scene.
Certified B-Corp. The Bear James Company (makers of Thinga) is a certified B-Corp. We are proud to be aligned with other companies such as Kickstarter, Patagonia, and Ben and Jerry's that share similar social and ecological values! Learn More
Fun Pages! Who likes Lil Bub? (everyone!) What about the history of punk as told through a scavenger hunt by a Halloween Pumpkin? Thinga loves doing holiday and special promotions with local and national companies. Let's do one together!
Festivals, Faires, and Pop-Up Events. We love getting out and about, whether it's Wooden Sword Class in Marfa, Galactic Spin Art at Maker Fair, Book Fairs, or even just music, art, science, and fun!

Thinga is a single online source of wonder, discovery, education, and fun for people of any age. We work on projects that benefit online and real world communities. This includes regional popup events, festivals, charitable products and partnerships with family-oriented organizations. A significant part of our mission is to provide free and accessible content on and offline for historically challenged and low income groups.
Thinga Offers a Choice
We believe everyone should have the right to choose the types of content they view online. We fundamentally believe in freedom of expression, and we believe that all people including children, parents, and educators have the right to explore the world in a safe and appropriate way.
Peace of Mind Online
Regular people have very little choice than to go to very large content providers to watch videos, be inspired and ... whoa .. wait a minute ... LEARN something! Not only are the offerings limited, but the way they're delivered detracts from the goal of building knowledge, imagination and curiosity.
At The Bear James Company, we are changing this! We believe kids and parents have the right to choose the types of content they view online. By creating a dedicated, all-ages website, we’re giving families a place to discover and explore great content together.
