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.

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.
