These fun little puzzles are a wonderfully nifty way to get kids reasoning with numbers. Kids can experiment with concepts such as quantity, addition and subtraction, and fractions in a low-stakes, high-fun setting. In fact it's so fun that it borders on addictive. The developers were very successful in creating a game that leaves kids continually wanting to play "just one more level." Parents may want to help set limits so that kids know when it's time to stop. Many puzzles require lots of abstract thinking and logical reasoning and come with little to no help when it just isn't clicking. Though it may be a plus for some that there are no instructions or explanations, other kids may find the puzzles confusing and can end up feeling frustrated. These kids may need some outside help. Even just a little explanation about what's going on could be enough. That said, for kids comfortable with tapping around and figuring things out, this is a fun way to apply math skills.

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.
