This flying ship-themed game is a fun, visually appealing way to learn basic math concepts. Besides looking nice, the great thing about Numbala is that the numbers are so baked into the central, pragmatic tasks in the game that kids might not even notice that they're actually doing math. Numbala's way of introducing how objects are grouped and how numerals represent those groups may be particularly effective for kids who are struggling to learn the basics of math in the standard pencil-and-paper way. Other kids will likely just enjoy this fast-paced, pretty game with a slightly exciting (mostly sweet) storyline.

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.
