Review: Bugzzle Puzzle

Fat Brain Toy Co. has really creat an amazing little game that touches on a lot of math concepts that are normally harder for students to grasp. Bugzzle goes beyond the fun of regular puzzles. It is a great way to get kids excited about math. The pieces are a nice size but don’t have much weight to them. The colors are bright and the challenge cards have the solutions on the back.


My daughter has really been enjoying this game. She loves games in which she has to solve a problem. I have noticed however that this game isn’t difficult for her. She can easily complete the challenges. So in an attempt to get her brain moving when she plays I ask her about each ring within the circle. “How much of the outer circle is orange?”, “How much of the center circle is green?”, when she answers I give her the fraction equivalent so she starts saying them in fraction as well.

Review: Geoboards

A fun way to help kids get great hand-eye coordination isn’t with  Geoboards . I love that with these there are 4 boards included so you can use it with multiple students. The rubber bands are different colors and 2 different sizes. The pictures are fun, colorful and you get a bunch of them. My daughter really likes these. For some reason she thinks it’s so funny when the bands pop her. At first I just let her place the bands anywhere to get the idea of how to put them on. Then we started places them just on the white lines in the picture. She always wants to do more than one so I let her do as many pictures as she wants. I do wish there was a blanket picture so she could design her own things.
