Dino Dice – Numbers & Dots (add & subtract)

My 5 year old, who is quite numbers orientated, thought this was the coolest thing ever and sits on his own rolling the dice and doing the sums very happily. It was a bit advanced for my 3 year old, but that isn’t a huge surprise and the game is really aimed at 4-6 years.

Bear Essentials – world of numbers

This is a bright, fun toy that really does encourage children to learn. It helps develop numeracy skills and both my children could play with it quite happily as children can work at their own level. There is a leaflet included that shows you how to play 14 different games and there’s even a nice little tidy bag with it so you don’t lose any of the pieces.

Times Table (1 to 12) Cube Book

At £6.50 the cube book is fantastic value and also the way the cube opens it pretty relaxing and compulsive to use. Maxi loves numbers and this was right up his street, in fact he has taken it to bed with him each night. He ask me to use it and test him and gets pretty happy when he gets it right and you can also hide the answers to self test.

Planets Cube Book

All the statistics about the solar system are kept at hand in this cube book, which is a fun way of keeping your planets all to hand. Both the boys love the solar system and the planets and have been using the cube to keep us all informed about the size and location of the planets. The cube book is fun to use and once you start playing with it, you just can not stop.

KnowWhere Cards

This is a simple card game that if played enough will probably teach children the basic facts about countries of the world. In our house, it will probably get most play in the run-up to exams, as it’s not really great for playing with children of different ages. Still, if you’re looking for a nice quality game that’s more educational than snap this is probably the one for you.
