Dingbats are visual word puzzles from which a well known phrase or saying has to be identified. They are derived from the board game that was devised by Paul Sellars. Although similar in concept to the puzzles that were used in TV’s “Catchphrase”, dingbats generally rely on text rather than pictures, the picture style being more correctly known as a “REBUS”. The principle is however just the same, or as Roy Walker would have said, “Just Say What You See!!!”

Here are a couple of downloadable example sheets: –

Thanks to the overwhelming interest in this section here are another two sheets to download.

Here’s the latest sheets, I hope you enjoy them.

I’ve come up with some Christmas ones, give these a try!

Here are some new ones with a WEDDING theme, let me know how you get on!!

As this year (2012) is the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II, I thought some Royal Dingbats would go down well.

I recently had a request for some prison related dingbats for a charity event. I realise that these may have a limited appeal but give them a go anyway.

With the Olympic games approaching these Olympic Dingbats may come in handy.

These were compiled for a military wedding and therefore all have a “military” theme.

Here are the latest ones based on phrases you might hear in schools, give them a try.

If you have any ideas for other DINGBATS, please let me know via the CONTACT ME section.
