Sing your Unthinkables* (we are officially changing Unthinkables to UnthinkaBots over the course of 2021-22) to rest with these 13 fun, catchy, and educational songs that support our children's social emotional learning as taught through the Superflex curriculum! Each song is an upbeat combination of music and lyrics that can help kids learn more about Social Town, the sneaky Unthinkables, and training at the Superflex Academy to help them seek their "Hero Inside". It was an honor to have our songs written by three-time Emmy nominated songwriters, Michael and Patty Silversher, known for their work writing children's songs for Disney and for the Jim Henson Muppets. Music and lyrics are based on the concepts and characters in the original Superflex curriculum created by Stephanie Madrigal and Michelle Garcia Winner. Also available for digital download on iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play.

*Name Change from the Team of Unthinkables to the Team of UnthinkaBots
We have officially changed the name of the Team of Unthinkables to the Team of UnthinkaBots. The Superflex curriculum was born in 2008, and over its lifetime we have relied on input and ideas from clients, students, families, teachers, and therapists in both the neurodivergent and neurotypical worlds. Using their feedback and our own clinical experience, we have refined the curriculum series to include Thinkables, expand the characters in Social Town, and add the You Are a Social Detective, 2nd edition, storybook as a way to welcome social learners into the Superflex Universe. Recently, while meeting with neurodivergent adults, we discovered that the concept behind the creation of the Unthinkables was misunderstood and, at times, misused in classrooms and clinics by having certain Unthinkables represent children or people, rather than specific thoughts or actions.
To encourage interventionists to use these concepts in the manner intended, we are changing the name of Unthinkables to UnthinkaBots. With this new name, social learners can now imagine the Bots that try to control some of our thoughts and actions. For example, Was Funny Once releases SillyBots to get us to use humor at unexpected times and in unexpected situations. We all can learn to tackle the SillyBots with strategies and tools from the Social Thinking® Methodology. We hope you will enjoy imagining new ways to think about the UnthinkaBot characters in classrooms, small groups, and at home! One more thing. We replaced 4 of the 14 “first generation” characters with new names: Mean Bean (previously Mean Gene/Jean), Me-Gull (formerly One-sided Sid), Body Drifter (formerly Body Snatcher), and Blurt Out Blue (formerly Grump Grumpaniny).
We will be updating our products with these changes over the course of 2021 and 2022. It makes sense that we’re teaching students to be superflexible, since we, as publishers, also flex a lot as we learn. We hope you enjoy incorporating these important updates.
