A great introduction to various math operations. Recommended for ages 8 and up. Children learn problem solving, greater than/less than, quick thinking and addition and subtraction. Dad Art says, "An excellent game that builds critical thinking and reinforces basic math facts."
Freefall. It's a skydiving adventure with all of the fun and none of the danger, and we provide the parachutes! Score points each round by staying in the highest zone and then, finally making a skillful landing for bonus points. This playful game is filled with strategy and fun for kids and parents. Recommended for ages 8 and up. Children learn visual mapping, tactical planning and risk and reward. Melinda, 9, says, "This game has a lot of strategy to it!"
Foodle. Test your nutrition IQ with our fun new game.

And, don't forget to exercise when you land on a Foolde Do space! Recommended for ages 8 and up. Children learn portion sizes, nutritional facts and making healthy choices. Mom Shannon says, "As a former dietician, I highly recommend this game for families to learn about healthy eating."
My Monster. Pick your monster and collect all their missing shapes by reaching into the bag. No peeking! An ideal "hands on" activity to encourage tactile skills in young learners.
