Dingbats is the name of a puzzle franchise devised by Paul Sellers in 1980, and first published as a board game in 1987. The game, for two or more people, involves solving rebuses: puzzles in which a common word or saying is hidden in a cryptic or otherwise unique arrangement of symbols.

The puzzles are syndicated internationally in newspapers, under various names such as "WHATZIT?" in North America, and "KATCH-ITS" in Australia.[1]

The name "Dingbats" is a registered trademark in the UK and European Union.[2]
