Whilst delivering Christmas presents, Santa became stuck in different chimneys and became very behind schedule. At what time was Santa rescued from each chimney, which child was he delivering what present to and which reindeer hauled him out?

Santa was not delivering the Train Set to Craig.

Rudolph hauled Santa out of one chimney exactly 1 hour before Santa was rescued from Diana's chimney.

Building Blocks were delivered to Ryan after 1:30a.m. but before 4:00a.m.

Blitzen hauled Santa out of one chimney exactly half an hour after Donner hauled him out of another.

Comet helped Santa when he was stuck in Jerry's chimney: this was not the last chimney that he was stuck in that morning.

The Teddy Bear was delivered directly before the Doll, but not to Diana and wasn't with Santa when Rudolph pulled him out.

Prancer did not help Santa when he was stuck in the chimney with Drums.

No reindeer helped Santa out of a chimney with a toy having the same initial as the reindeer's name.

Times: 1:00a.m, 1:30a.m, 2:00a.m, 2:30a.m, 4:00a.m.
Reindeer: Blitzen, Comet, Donner, Prancer, Rudolph
Child: Craig, Diana, Jerry, Ryan, Sadie
Toy: Building Blocks, Doll, Drums, Teddy Bear, Train Set

I actually had to drag out paper and a pen for this one. It was a wonderful challenge. I hope you submit more logic-grids. This site needs 'em.

Gah!.. this one took me an hour and a half and three tries O_O (I am feeling a little dumb this morning).

I got it all right in the end & I ignored that clue about the reindeers's initial because I didn't understand it.

The first part of one clue: "the teddy bear was delivered before the doll, but not to diana" was fine, but the other half "and wasn't with santa when rudolph pulled him out" got me a little confused. which was not with him, the bear or the doll, or both? I assume the bear. I spent a lot of time on this one, it was hard, need more clues, or maybe a hint.

Holy cow. I am in the process of doing this teaser and it is taking me forever. I like this one but I had to pull out the paper and pencil for this one so I could make my own grid how I want it. Wow. If you made this one up congrats on making a challenging teaser.

Dang. After my long hours of work I was wrong just a little bit. I have to figure out where I went wrong now. Grrr.

I'm confused on how to figure out how come it can't be Prancer helping Santa out of Craig's chimney at 40 after Santa delivers the doll. And Rudolph helping Santa out of Sadie's chimney at 1:30 after Santa delivers the train set. I don't see a reason that those answers don't work too.

You guys do realize that if you understand the meaning of a comma and have a basic understanding of gramar than none of the questions are confusing at all. Great logic puzzle, one of the toughest I've seen in a while, keep it up.

I loved this teaser!!! It wasn't so hard that I spent a ton of time on it, but I didn't have the answer after I read through the clues once! One of my favorites!!!

This was a good teaser. The clues were well worded and NOT confusing. Craig could have received a G I Joe or a MY BUDDY or something like that

That was really fun! I didn't think it was extremely hard or confusing. It was a lot of fun. I thought it was funny that craig got a doll.

Nice puzzle! A bit overrated on difficulty.

Very overrated on difficulty, took me 15 minutes, but I guess some things fall in place for some people and not others on certain puzzles. The puzzle was worded fine and I agree with the grammar/comma coment. Had fun though.

Excellent! I had no problems understanding any of the clues, but did have to re-read them a few times to put everything into place. I got it on the first try, but it took me 1/2 hour! Hope to see more like this. When i saw what Craid and Sadie ended up with, I was sure I had it wrong! Nice twist.

I hope those reindeer didn't have any accidents while they were hauling poor Santa out of those chimneys! I enjoyed the teaser regardless of the mental images! Good job!
