Lovely graphics and a fun, magical theme lead kids through games of subitizing, or estimating amounts without numerals. Fuzzy Numbers: Pre-K Number Sense gives kids lots of practice with making intuitive judgments about the quantity of items in a group. Level after level, kids choose which of two groups of items meets the requested criteria. All the whimsy of the magical land and the fun context of each game may be enough of a package to distract some kids from the repetition. Others may tire quickly. With no audio instructions, kids are free to explore and discover on their own. However, since there's a clear task to complete and a definite right and wrong answer choice, the complete lack of instruction may confuse some kids. Since most kids playing this game likely can't read yet, grown-ups should be prepared to play with kids and read the written instructions out loud. Despite a few shortcomings, Fuzzy Numbers: Pre-K Number Sense gets kudos for putting together an academic-research background with an imaginative, playful presentation to try to help kids build a solid early math foundation.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
