Looked good quality, interesting. I liked the bright colours. I was very intrigued and thought it would be a good way for her to practise some maths at home in a fun way. Instructions are very good and nice for a child to use. I like the cards having images and instructions. My daughter did like to play this game. She was able to get it out and start a game on her own, even playing on her own. She liked playing it and liked that there were different ways to play it. She found it fun and enjoyed using it but I wouldn’t really say it was exciting. She did enjoy the 40+ brain boosting games. She liked that she could use it on her own and then with her sister or us. There was so many games it was easy to try something new. It did keep her entertained and she used the cards and played the games but then also ended up making her own versions on the games. She has played it with her sister and with us, her parents. Her sister was not very bothered by it at 11. It is a great way to continue maths work at home, especially as her school has something similar so she was able to continue things from school at home. Absolutely helped improve fine motor and early maths skills. She got it out every day when it first arrived and then went down to a couple of times a week. This was played with in the living room. She liked the blocks and just counting and using the blocks even if it wasn’t a game suggested. I like that she can use it on her own and just give it a go. I think the age suitability was ideal for my daughter. A great educational game as there is so many ways for them to learn with it. It is perhaps more than I would spend but it is a long lasting item. The quality is very good. I would buy this as my daughter loves maths and it is a great way to continue that at home. I would recommend as it is similar to things at school but not too forced to help children with their maths. There is lots of way to play with it and they are always learning. A lovely quality item which has so many games to play and even inspires them to think of new ways to learn. Claire Brain – Katie 6 Years

I was happy with how it looked and interested to see how it worked. I think it’s a really good game for younger children who are learning maths. It helps teach children without realising as there are games which teach them as they go along. The instructions were very clear and simple to understand. My children liked that there are different games for different levels of learners. Both my children enjoyed playing this game together. They did find it fun and exciting and enjoyed the different levels and games which kept them engaged well. They did enjoy the 40+ brain boosting games as offers a good variety of games. The different variety of games kept them engaged. Both my 8 & 10 year old have enjoyed playing this. This is great for children of all ages and encourages learning through play. This game has been played many times. Always played this at home. They both liked the different game suggestions. I liked how it encourages them to learn through play. I would say this game is well suited to children 5-10. A great educational game as a fun way of learning. I would suggest a price of £10-£15 would be good value. This is a really good quality game. I would buy this as it is a good educational game which is suitable for children. I would recommend for the same reasons. A great concept of teaching children through play. Overall my children (8 and 10) thoroughly enjoyed playing and learning with this game and will have many hours of fun with it. Charlotte Evans – Finley 8 Years

Small box, easily transportable, looks like an educational game. Great concept, compact and easily transportable. Really love how it is more than just one game, it offers all different puzzles and activities for a wide age range. Some of the instructions are difficult to follow- for more of the advanced games, I felt I needed to read a couple of times before I got Freddie involved! Some of the games are much easier than others- for example the toppling towers is great and easy to follow but sliding blocks took a bit of getting used too! Freddie is pretty into maths and enjoys tactile games, he did lose interest a few times and wanted to move onto the next game a lot. This is easy to do as there is so many different “games” but sometimes I wanted him to focus on what we started! As previously mentioned, some games are more exciting than others. Some are far more challenging than others and requires an adult to point in the right direction. They did definitely keep him entertained and focused for a while. He did enjoy the 40+ brain boosting games. The variety of games that he was able to play is a definite plus. Some he liked more than others but as an educational tool I thought it was fairly comprehensive. He was entertained, he enjoyed the colour towers game and especially liked when he could complete some activities on his own. We played it with big sis, little sis and big brother- they all enjoyed it. The different games and cards was a bonus as they range in age from 3-14!! I did think it made him consider what was being asked and how he was going to achieve it so on that basis some of the activities are very effective. I think you would need to play it every day in order to see a huge improvement however, it did help me identify any weaknesses in his maths /reasoning. Consistent playing of some games will definitely help improve his maths skills. This was played with about ten times, usually played at the weekend. We played it at home in the kitchen – the kitchen table provides enough space. My son liked the variety of games. I liked the variety of games and the instructions!! This was age suitable for my son. Freddie was more enthusiastic about some of the games than others but that’s to be expected. Some were a little too advanced but that something we can look at and do as and when he is ready. I think it is a useful tool for schools and teachers. It offers a wide range of hands on activities that can be done either as a group or individually. Good value as it is cheaper than an average board game and offers a wide range of activities. Good quality cubes, the cards are sturdy and wipe clean and not too easily ripped/damaged. I would purchase as it could suit more than just one child in the household. It is without doubt an educational based “game” that offers either consolidation of existing knowledge or an open door to new concepts. I would recommend for the same reasons. A solid educational based resource that caters for a wide age range of children. Some of the puzzles are far easier to follow and complete than others. It’s not an “everyday” activity but it is something that you could use in order to not only spend time with your child/children one to one but also to see how good some of their problem solving abilities are! The instructions for some of the activities are a little confusing so I would suggest reading them before you get the kids ready to go!! Thank you for the opportunity to review!
